Azoft is a Location-Based Services (LBS) company, specializing in development of custom software solutions with location-tracking features. We have completed a number of LBS projects, such as location-aware mobile applications suitable for a wide range of purposes.
Most mobile devices today are equipped with location-tracking (GPS) functionality, giving rise to a great variety of location-aware applications. LBS solutions have many implementations, such as targeted marketing, management of remote employees, location-based social networking, entertainment, and much more.
This mobile application was developed for our client in Norway who was in need of location-aware solution suitable for searching and ordering of the nearest taxi cab. Utilising GPS receiver of customer's mobile device, the application determines the current location and finds a suitable car.
In addition to ordering taxi cabs, the mobile application displays both the user's and the car's location on a map and provides instructions how to reach the chosen vehicle. The application was released for iOS and Android platforms and is available in multiple languages.
Azoft was requested to develop a cross-platform mobile solution to make the process of everyday shopping much more comfortable and advantageous. Based on user's location, the application offers a list of available discount coupons and provides an opportunity to use it immediately.
This application can be used in any place of interest such as a local grocery store or shopping mall with numerous departments. The app is designed as a cross platform mobile solution, compatible with iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone 7 mobile devices. In addition, whenever users are offered a discount, they can share the news with friends via SMS, email, or popular social networking platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter.
I take great pleasure in describing my experiences with Azoft. I have been managing web development teams for over 35 years, some as direct employee teams and some as outside teams, and the team Azoft provided is clearly among the best I have ever used.
