In recent years medical imaging techniques (X-rays, MRIs, etc) have advanced in relevant representations of tissue abnormalities and are now commonly used in healthcare creating a vast amount of data radiologists sift through daily. The number of images can be overwhelming to process which often leads to delay in diagnosis or even professional burnout of radiologists. With a steadily increase in the amount of imaging data radiologists would look to the AI app to improve workflows and diagnostic accuracy of medical imaging interpretation. 

Our client pursued a lofty goal to develop an AI-based healthcare application that would expedite the transition from curative to preventative healthcare. The core idea was to apply machine learning algorithms for big data analysis and develop an image-based deep learning system for estimating the risk of deseases and diagnosing oncology at the earliest stage.   

 

Complex business logic defined the required web application behavior and functions. For this reason, the healthcare solution was built as a multiple-module system, where each module, incorporated through the interface, served a separate business function.

FACEBOOK’S LATEST EXPERIMENTAL APP LOOKS A LOT LIKE PINTEREST 

According to CNN business news, a release of the latest experimental app of Facebook (FB) is full of controversies and rumors. ‘Hobbi’ is a new application allowing its user to save their activities’ photos while focusing on everyday topics (e.g. DIY projects, cooking, etc.). What is more, the app makes possible to organize photos collections. All the mentioned features Hobbi provides are claimed to be previously popularized by Pinterest.  

Releasing cloned features and the apps critically similar to its rivals is nothing new in the history of FB. Nevertheless, the network administration is not embarrassed but feels positive and far-sighted instead: 

Many of the products we create will start small and may not resonate with everyone. And we expect many will be shut down as a result. That’s okay,” reads the team’s website.

THE DRONES ARE COMING   

The transportation sphere surprises us with tech innovations as well. The drone delivery business continues its development and integration into the modern world services. A large number of drone delivery schemes and systems are either on the go or still in prospect presently. Nevertheless, we can already talk about certain medical supplies and documents as well as food deliveries in various corners of the world. The benefits of the service are the following: 

  • lower costs; 
  • speed; 
  • carbon emission reduction, etc. 

Understandably, drone popularity in the industry will definitely increase and gain momentum in further years. However, even when such a delivery service becomes common, it is not likely to replace existing delivery methods and ways. We will probably see a mix of them in the near future.

Website and Mobile Application Development for a Taxi Service https://agiliway.com/website-and-mobile-application-development-for-a-taxi-service/ Tue, 25 Feb 2020 15:35:00 +0000 https://agiliway.com/?p=4721 Read more »]]>  

Taxi service appears to be an incredibly popular one in all the corners of the world. What is more, it is very hard to imagine modern living without such an ‘always-at-hand’ vehicle. Fast-paced schedules and the immense growth of the transportation industry lead to the customers’ concerns being effectively addressed. More and more gadgets, applications and advanced technologies are being created to optimize, streamline, modernize and, finally, popularize this type of transportation service.

Our transportation field client turned to us having in mind to create both a mobile app and a completely functional website on taxi services provided. To meet the business goals, the project continued three years and a half with its development starting from scratch.

 

PROJECT LOGIC BUILDING

Due to the project’s wide scope of functionality, our engineering team went headlong into the platform working out with the two main stages of both a mobile app and website development. 

  • Developing a mobile application 

The application allows the user to order a taxi and to track the route up to the indicated pick-up point. Payment is made either in cash or changed to the user’s bank cardThe app is available for downloading both on iOS or Android– based gadgets. 

  • Developing a website 

The website includes information about the company itself, the service offeredmobile appsprices, etc.; what is more, the provider gives a possibility to rent a car or bus, to book a transfer or a personal driver. To ensure a highly competitive edge, the website is extremely user-friendly, with advanced scalability, and easy configuration.

PROJECT ARCHITECTURE BUILDING

Mobile application development and its implementation called for a wide range of various programming techniques and tools to cater to the needs of the customer, and, subsequently, his clients. To that end, the tech stack included: 

  • Android app built with Java, Angular, etc.;  

Java is preferable for Android apps development as it is optimized for Android and offers security along with a rich set of core features to serve flawless performance and sustainability improvement. 

  • iOS app built with Objective-C, together with Braintree (LiqPay), Google maps, etc.  

The technologies mentioned are meant to ensure proper bug-free tracking, payment system, architecture platform and design development;  

The website for the taxi services was built with Python including Django as an open-source web framework along with MySQL, CSS, and so on 

Due to its rich technology stackextensive set of libraries, frameworksand extensions that simplify the implementation of both small and large-scale projects, Python proved to be a viable programming language for the architecture design creation and modules implementation

VALUE DELIVERED

As mentioned above, our high-quality engineering team started the project from scratch thus getting a real possibility to demonstrate all its skills and to present a ready product. We have achieved high results in end product development, implementation and presentation. In addition to the basic functions that are common in mainstream taxi services nowadays, we have developed plenty of additional ones, like ordering a personal driver. Our team had a business goal to combine all the important functions connected with transportation into one service and succeeded. It has been a useful experience in the field of payment systems, mapping work and GPS trackers.

Integrated into the transportation services network, this mobile application along with the website developed provide customers with a better choice of taxi services due to:

  • simplified and optimized platform; 
  • highly streamlined and professionally managed services; 
  • an abundance of services offered; 
  • a possibility to choose a payment method;  
  • excellent usability, etc. 

A wealth of advantages provided is sure to make a difference to the industry by making its users mobile, updated and always on the go.

Nowadays the internet has had a tremendous impact on every industry, especially on travel agencies. Instead of other options (booking with direct vendors and third parties), 73% of all travel package bookings are made via travel agencies. Thus, they make technology their ally and invest in high performing tour search and booking tools with excellent usability. 

Our client had an ambitious plan of winning a share in the already competitive market of travel. And now we want to share with you our results in this challenging case.

 

Agiliway engineers took the challenge and came down to the work on the project as soon as it was possible realizing the nearing of the hot tourist season for all tour agencies.

Such cases make us confident that whatever the industry – travel, logistics or hospitality – internet technologies have something to offer to improve the process and the performance. Don’t hesitate to contact us for cases relevant to your industry.

The Benefits of React for Providing GPS Tracking Solutions https://agiliway.com/the-benefits-of-react-for-providing-gps-tracking-solutions/ Wed, 12 Feb 2020 14:28:00 +0000 https://agiliway.com/?p=4682 Read more »]]>  

Our client is a leader in providing GPS tracking systems for vehicle fleet management. It works equally with large corporate clients and individuals providing comprehensive services. 

So when they realized that their original technology, with which it entered the market, became very outdated, it has been given a lot of challenges for updating. What is more, the existing solution did not allow the company to add new features and, thus, cater to the rising needs and expectations of the clients.

The company came to us looking for a way to innovate the system, make it mobile, more efficient, modern and user-friendly. To address the needs of the client, Agiliway suggested rewriting a system using React and creating a React Native mobile application for it.

Let’s dive deeper into our case for vehicle fleet management.

Agiliway GPS Tracking

Our case of rewriting the GPS tracking system on React and creating native mobile applications demonstrates the potential of this framework to solve complex technological tasks.
