Case Study – JoyRun
Manish Rathi, CEO of JoyRun, saw an opportunity for a new type of food-delivery app optimized for communities such as schools and offices. Combining geo-location with social networks, JoyRun emerged as a forerunner in the “social food delivery” category by connecting ‘buyers’ with ‘runners’ for convenient local delivery.
“As we scoped out the development schedule for JoyRun, we realized we’d have to hire Android and iOS engineers, and it would take three months,” said Rathi.
Much of the development time would be dedicated to pulling together building blocks, location, social log-in, and monitoring functions.
“By using Onymos, we were able to develop and submit a fully functional version of JoyRun into both app stores within a week. It allowed our internal engineering team to accelerate our development and focus on engineering the business features, rather than reinventing the wheel and building all the basic feature requirements for our app,” explained Rathi.
“For instance, we were able to add a restaurant menu selection feature ahead of schedule because of all the time saved using Onymos Chat. Onymos has consistently saved us time and effort managing iOS and Android updates. Love their proactive updates and customer-focus — highly recommended!”
