Tech Stack Breakdown




Google Cloud



React Native



Our carefully selected tech stack empowered us to develop a robust and scalable platform for the restaurant industry. We used React Native, a cross-platform framework, to ensure compatibility with both iOS and Android devices. Styled components were implemented to create visually appealing and reusable UI elements, enhancing the overall aesthetics of the application.

For data storage, we employed Firestore as our primary NoSQL database, providing real-time capabilities and automatic synchronization of up-to-date information. Additionally, MySQL was used for a custom analytics database, enabling us to gather insights and make data-driven decisions to optimize the platform.

To power the geolocation features, we integrated Mapbox, a mapping and geolocation platform known for its accuracy and reliability. This integration allowed for accurate location-based services, improving the user experience when searching for nearby restaurants or navigating to specific destinations.

Complementing our tech stack, Firebase and Google Cloud provided a secure and scalable backend infrastructure. Firebase Storage facilitated efficient media hosting, ensuring fast and reliable access to images and other multimedia assets. Additionally, AWS S3 served as a vital backup solution to maintain data integrity and enable disaster recovery.

With our carefully chosen tech stack of React Native, Firestore, MySQL, Mapbox, Firebase, and Google Cloud, we successfully developed a robust and user-friendly platform that set new industry standards.

Our Strategy

To drive the success of our project, we implemented a comprehensive and iterative strategy. Thorough scoping allowed us to understand the requirements and expectations of restaurants and customers, enabling us to tailor our solution accordingly. Through clear communication and collaboration, we developed a working prototype that served as a foundation for continuous improvement. Emphasizing ongoing support, we ensured the platform remained up-to-date and responsive, providing customized support packages to meet specific client needs.
