Development of a Platform for Crowdfund Experiences

Let's Dutch is a social network for raising funds for nonprofits' needs. The platform helps users find like-minded people to attend exciting events and share the cost. Do you fancy flying in a private jet but don't have enough funds? Let's Dutch will help you with this. People can find others ready to share the cost of flying a private jet, sailing a yacht, renting a luxury hotel, and more using this platform. It works in 2 ways. Users who want to attend certain events log in and post their offers. On the other hand, people who want to have fun go to the Let's Dutch and select the events they like.

I believe Let's Dutch is a great platform. It allows you to share experiences with different people, and ultimately reduce your costs. We have all faced situations where we wanted to attend an event but didn’t have a friend ready to be our +1. Let's Dutch solves this problem. This application allows people to visit interesting places and make new friends.

Challenges and Objectives

When we first saw the app, it was a not poorly functioning website but did require significant changes. Our task was to update the engine to make the site faster. It was also not mobile adapted because it was just a prototype, making it difficult to use via a smartphone. Therefore, our team also had to completely remake the system's front-end and update the site’s design to make it more attractive.

How KeyUA’s Services Helped

While working on this project, we took several measures to increase the system’s productivity. We upgraded the old code by removing unnecessary parts and adding new functionality that decreased the search time. Our team redesigned the front-end part of the platform and made the application attractive to smartphone users, which allowed us to increase customer flow by 40%. Additionally, by changing the site’s external shell code, we also managed to reduce the time required to load it.

Add the ability to leave feedback on various events to increase the level of trust in the system.
Integrate with Stripe to protect clients' transactions.
