Mustad came to us to build an MVP they wanted to further develop into the minimal marketable stage. The project scope expanded beyond initial plans and the original MVP faced challenges adding additional features, preventing the application’s launch. In order to move forward it was decided that ejecting from the MVP’s current framework would be necessary.
In addition to changing frameworks, we also faced the challenge of creating an app designed for a non-digital audience that would function without an internet connection and handle native device functionalities. Working offline was crucial as the designated end user would often be in locations lacking data service.
Key challenges of the project included:
- Offline support (synchronization to relational and document databases)
- Native component inclusion on multiple platforms (i.e. camera and photo handling)
- Ejecting from Expo framework and adopting React Native and Firebase in order to progress from MVP to MMP
