Urbs: Travelling (in beta testing)

Brand Story

Urbs is an application for personalized & high-quality city guides to improve the experience of traveling & discovering new places in the cities tied up to specific user interests.

Goals

Deliver a high-quality solution from scratch, scoping out the most value-adding functionalities for the product & provide a clear & simple content management system for the service in order to update it with relevant voice, video & text content.

Challenges

The main challenge was to build a product from scratch which would actually attract the right user audience, provide value & reshape the current city-guides niche in the App Store with something of better quality.

We solved it through working on the technical specification for the product – outlining main product targets, user audience, high-level description of the main functionalities, different user entities & application flow, building low-fidelity wireframes & outlining business and safety requirements.

Upon the completion of technical specifications, we kicked off the iterative design & development process following our Standratized 5 Steps Development approach bringing the product closer to completion on a step-by-step basis.

Results

We’ve delivered a quality iOS solution – users can perform key tasks through the application & are able to get quality voice & media guides inside the cities based on their preferences.

Product Plans

Future plans for the service – expanding to a number of European cities & building an Android version – fundraising goes first though. With the opening all over the world after the pandemic, the future looks promising for Urbs.

We’re using COVID-19 times to polish the product, work with the test group, gather more feedback, and publish the product once quarantine and lockdowns go done.

“I got an amazing product that was exactly what I visioned when I first sat out & drew the first plans up. The two areas that I think where Stan & his team particularly excel:
first is attention to detail (…) & secondly the kind of support after they’ve provided after the app been largely complete – I’m sure the number of teams just do the bug work & leave it but they are [AMS team] always on hand to answer any questions really at any time of day which is incredible.
So I’d encourage anyone who wants to build any sort of product use Stan & his team cause it’ll accelerate your business and make your life a whole lot easier. “
