HungryJi is a food ordering and delivery app that uses the user's location to show restaurants and fast food chains near them. The app enables users to order from their favourite restaurants from the comfort of their homes.
ORDER YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME
Why go through the trouble of getting up and driving to the restaurant when you can just use your mobile to place orders from nearby restaurants and get the food delivered warm and delicious at your doorsteps?
If you are hungry, then just download the HungryJi app and place orders of delicious dishes from the comfort of your home. You will get the order delivered as soon as possible. As you place the order, the HungryJi app will notify the restaurant and the driver about the same and based on the distance between you, the restaurant and the driver; the app will show you an estimated delivery time. HungryJi's express delivery system will deliver your order at the fastest time possible.
The first challenge was to have the user's accurate location so that the app could show them nearby restaurants. We have to ensure timely delivery, and therefore only nearby restaurants are displayed to the user. This was possible with an effective and advanced Google API integration.
The second challenge was to create an advanced search algorithm so that the users can use various keywords to search their desired dish or place.
The last challenge was to manage the food preparing and delivery operations for the app. The app should send immediate notifications as the order is placed so that the restaurant can start preparing the meal and at the same time, the driver can reach there to pick up the order.
HUNGRYJI EXPERIENCES STRATEGY
The first strategy was to design an exception wireframe for the app that provides the best in-app experience for a food ordering app.
Our second strategy was to manage the real-time integration between the user app, the restaurant app, and the driver app.
The third strategy was to design a unique and amazing user-experience that helps them find their favourite dishes and order them.
