When the clients came to us, they wanted a source to reach out to the common man. There are hundreds of applications where a tap on the screen can solve your problem within minutes. However, the clients felt availability was limited to metro cities. Makers invested more in metro cities as compared to others.
3) User story:
Here lies the origin of Jokaamo. The client wanted to make things readily available to everyone irrespective of their location. The concept seemed intriguing to us. The idea of connecting vendors directly with the customer as per the need sounded novel. The meeting involved noting down all the requirements and prioritising accordingly.
4) The Process:
We planned to deliver an Android and iOS application to fulfil the client’s aim. The app enables people to avail day-to-day services in a few clicks.
We decided the flow of project:-
The story behind the name of this application is interesting in itself. The client wanted to connect to the Indian audience at large through the services yet stay alienated from using Indianised vocabulary. Hence, the term Jokaamo is derived from the Indian terms ‘Jo Kaam Ho’. So when reading together, it is called Jokaamo.
