  • DCI planned to proceed the development into 2 phases
  • Requirement gathering/Elicitation.
  • Wireframing and Prototype.
  • ER diagram

As planned, DCI provided the Wireframe as per the functionality of the mobile application discussed which was when approved by the client, we started working on the Functional Prototype. This made it quite simple for the design team to provide a professional design as expected by the client.

Phase 2:

  • Development
  • Testing
  • UAT
  • Deploying the mobile app to play store and apple store
  • On approval of the Functional Prototype by the client, DCI started building the Database
  • Integrating the Prototype into a functional mobile application
  • DCI run, unit test on all stages to ensure that the bugs are minimal on the testing phase.

To ensure mobile app performance, DCI hosted all the images and videos in a cloud server and whenever the request is triggered to play the video the details are fetched from the cloud server. This to ensure the app performance and DB performance.
