"Vreau Ceva" is an on-demand marketplace, focused on services like cleaning, home repairs, tutoring and photo-video tasks. The users post requests for services and the providers can answer with their offers. After deciding on one of the offers, the users can continue the communication with the providers and, after the task is done, they can provide a rating for the task accomplishment.
The platform was built in Java with Angular.JS front-end. Native mobile apps, both for Android and for iOS were built as well. The hosting is on our own servers. For the administration interface we create a personalized dashboard with all possible metrics included and extracted.

"Vreau Imobil" is an on-demand marketplace that identifies suitable real estate properties for real estate buyers or renters, based on their search criteria. The two-sided marketplace brings together buyers/renters and home owners, who can post detailed property requests or create custom portfolios of available properties. The initial matching between requests and offers is performed automatically by the system, based on several criteria; an administrator can further refine the matches thus suggested. The administrator can also edit the submitted properties for publication to ensure the "for sale by owner" focus of the marketplace.
The marketplace is a customized implementation of “Vreau Ceva”, build in Java with Angular.JS front-end.

Remote Storage Startup
For a Swedish statups we did the development of a new remote storage client with scheduled backup capabilities, on multiple platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux. We produced of solution with the following system features:
- security (password protected accounts, SSL data transfer);
- backup under Windows, including locked files;
- scheduled backups;
- central Web server with Web access interface;
- multiple platforms support: Windows, Linux, Mac.
The client application is the second major release of an initial C++ based version. Making the application functionality user friendly under Vista was a real challenge, considering the multiple security aspects we had to take into account and Vista’s User Account Control. The dedication of our people and ingeniousness of the technical solutions they found impressed our customer, who is fully satisfied with the results.
A start-up from the Netherlands approached us in 2013 to develop a web application for their security services. The features we had to implement were: product information importing, tracking and handling, as well as report generation for different aggregation levels. An critical requirement for the solution was to be user friendliness. To this end we included drill down capabilities, graphical representation of different information and comparative display of different curves. The Back-end was develop to handle big volumes of data and permit various asynchronous processes to feed the data warehouse with information from heterogeneous sources.
Mobile Chest Belt
This is a "mobile coach" that helps users with indications during sport activities. We developed the solution for a start-up based in Germany that wanted a mobile application that would monitor an active person’s vital and environmental data during sport workouts via a set of sensors placed on a strap.
The indications provided by the "coach" may be visual or acoustic, via voice commands and a music player included on supported devices. A complex graphical display has been implemented as the user gets a lot of information presented at the same time.
The mobile application is a highly modular and customizable solution, which the client can tailor to their needs. We can easily change the look & feel of the application, the language, and choose the desired combination of features according to the vendors’ choices. We provided two choices for the user interface. One of them has the custom user interface entirely written with custom user interface (UI) components. All the components, animations and transitions were specifically tailored for high-end devices with powerful graphical engines. The other solution was based on standard UI components, especially those provided by the J2ME Polish framework. This version targeted a wider range of supported devices.
The application was designed for mobile devices supporting J2ME (MIDP 2.0 and CLDC 1.0).
Solar Energy Monitoring
A customer for Germany needed a software solution to collect data from Solar devices and generate various types of reports. The data had to be collected via the Internet and delivered to the user in a web browser. Other important requirements for the solution were to generate graphic charts that can display single or multiple parameters on the same chart, to deliver notifications and warning when the values monitored are outside their normal ranges and to handle huge volumes of data.. Two different versions have been developed, each with its distinct software development cycle. The user interface has been designed by professionals with and for the latest Web and GUI technology. Artistic skills were needed even for the developer.
The project went according to the plan, but not without challenges, which we overcome with good planning, frequent communication with and the direct involvement of the customer, dedication and creativity.
We relied on the .NET 3.5 technology for this project.
In-app Payment System
A start-up from Switzerland contacted us in 2012 to develop and test an in-app payment system that would enable consumers to make secure device-based purchases within a mobile app. The solution we delivered eliminated the need to store payment card credentials across numerous mobile apps, providing consumers with a fast and simple payment experience. We have been helping our customer redefine and improve the efficiency and user experience of B2B and B2C payments across multiple industry sectors worldwide.
Wisher was a revolutionary product when we developed it, built to discover, use and share wifi hotspots, as well as to provide a friendly chat client for the community of people who shared their hotspots.
The client was developed using QT, the XMPP protocol for chat infrastructure and a Java enterprise dedicated server in a way that kept it very flexible and ensured its ability to handle multiple wifi standards, protocols and hardware profiles.
While additional features have been added over time, increasing the product’s complexity and making it scalable, its initial version had the quickest growth rate into the community and aroused the interest of the participants at the MWC in Barcelona.
