Our client is an agricultural-tech company that delivers a highly differentiated approach to agricultural lighting, using specific wavelengths and patterns of light to maximize plant and poultry production.
Developing a rapid software solution to launch their Pulsed Alternating Wavelengths System product line to market very quickly, generate revenue through an eCommerce portal, reuse apps for future offerings, and scale up for new commercial market opportunities. User experience, security, and availability were required for its MVP – along with performance, scalability, and fault tolerance.
DevIQ proposed a cloud-native backend, powered by AWS Amplify. We developed a detailed plan and roadmap, customizing communication tactics and processes to ensure workstream progress in parallel.
We then configured AWS technology stacks for 1) expediting the development process and delivering a reliable & scalable backend, 2) managing product purchase and marketing content, 3) integrating the ordering system and facilitating subscription purchases, and 4) facilitating Bluetooth product communication.
We also created compelling user experiences for controlling lights and purchasing products. The design and implementation of software infrastructure and applications supported a rapid MVP launch of our customer’s advanced consumer and equine light therapy product offerings, including iOS and Android mobile apps with Bluetooth capability, simulated Alpha / Beta testing without real hardware, a custom administrator UI for user management, subscriptions, reporting, and more.
DevIQ delivered a comprehensive software solution that met our client’s key business objectives and requirements, including a production-ready, user-centric MVP mobile apps and an e-commerce website, with modern and scalable cloud infrastructure to support their continued success.
