Nomad is a digital platform that simplifies buying and renting homes in Dubai. Founded in 2019, Nomad turns a traditionally complicated offline routine into a smooth online experience. Nomad provides a listing database and search engine to find a property that matches the user’s needs as a real estate service.
The platform relieves users from having to communicate with crowds of Agents, while the view management tool keeps all the properties you like in one place and updates you about new schedules.
Uptech is able to take an idea from concept to development. They were always ready to teach me new methods and were willing to try new approaches, workshops, and exercises. I was definitely impressed by the intellectual rigor that goes behind their mindset and organization of the workflow.
The Nomad team set out to create a real estate platform offering an excellent customer experience for the Dubai market.
Onsite workshops and short feedback loop helped promptly react to user feedback and align product statements with tech opportunities. As a result the product covers user needs to find a property based on specific criteria and business received market recognition and reached KPIs.
The Nomad team had an idea about what the app should do and tasked Uptech to shape this idea and bring it to life!
We used Contentful CMS as a third-party solution which allowed us to build an MVP in the timeline. Another third-party which saved us time was Calendly for appointments scheduling.
Deciding which product features take the lead on the list and which stand in the end of the queue.
We undertook brainstorming sessions with different prioritization techniques such as Impact vs Effort, Story Mapping, Impact on Business Goal and others.
We needed a fast track for web app development. Our goal was to move in small product development cycles and rapidly design, develop and test the features to check their viability for users.
Using the triada approach, we were able to find the fastest implementation options and conduct sketching sessions with the team to synchronize and expand variability right off the bat.
We start by discussing the features with the development team and product manager. Only after this follows the design. At this stage, we can find the simplest implementation solutions, which save time and money.
We design all possible user flows and create design assets with all components and states. Other members of the design team review all the design materials.
The goal is to validate the assumptions against the target audience quickly and to fit within the timelines, budget, and stakeholder expectations. We validate the assumptions against the target audience quickly to include only basic functionalities and keep the 'nice-to-have' features out.
During the Discovery stage, we created a prototype of the App that visualized the scope and features, and helped grasp the full picture of the app’s design. After several iterations of testing and hypotheses validation, we improved the prototype.
It was an important step, since making changes to a prototype is much simpler and cheaper than to the final released version.
