Case Study: Nyumba Online Website and App Development service

The Challenge

Nyumba Online is disrupting how a person can easily get a house, plot or apartment for rent or sale in Kenya. They specialize in offering property search and listing service for agents, landlords, and property seekers.

On January, two entrepreneurs Salim and Melvin were looking for a new goal, to develop a property listing platform and start earning money online by marching property seekers with landlords and agents with vacant houses all over Kenya.

The two approached us to help them achieve their goal by developing a property listing system, website design, and payment integration and that is how nyumbaonline.co.ke was born.

Our Approach

Prior to system and website development, we held two separate brainstorming activities. The first was between the Key stakeholders that are the entrepreneurs, lead developer, project managers and two developers from Shara. The outcome of the brainstorming session was a full understanding of the client requirements and project scope. We also arrived at the name Nyumba Online as it resonates with the purpose of the website to display properties particularly houses and shops available for sale, rent or lease.

The second brainstorming session was conducted after 2 days with all the software developers, UI designers, and content creators where we mapped everything and begin the system development process.

The Outcome

The goal was to create a website that is easy to understand and use. But the overall experience of using the final website mirrors the entrepreneurs’ goal of having a property listing site that is modern, easy to understand and use when adding a property or searching for one. We strived to create a user-friendly website with great user experience by using clear design elements and thus producing a website that aligns with property seekers, agents, and landlord needs.
