Help4u.today’s experience with a lean approach
help4u.today is an online marketplace to request cleaning services in Dubai from the comfort of your couch; it is meant to make your life easy and comfortable by providing you with services from professional and trustworthy agencies with just a couple of clicks.
We’ve worked with them for some time to build and grow the platform, applying the principles of lean software development in our day to day work, with an iterative approach, validating business assumptions and feature impact as we go.
As expected, this approach helped to understand both the market and the technical aspects both better and earlier; deploying earlier and more often gave us valuable feedback, which in turn led to revising feature priorities, refocus the platform and save a lot of effort that could have gone to waste.
The platform has been open to the public for some time now, volumes are picking up, lessons have been learned and course corrected a couple times; all in all it has been a great experience and the guys at help4u.today felt like publishing a blog post of how it worked from their perspective.
