The guys at SpacetoCo had big plans to take their idea of listing local spaces worldwide. Their vision was to provide a peer-to-peer platform that would better utilise people’s resources, drive local economies and most importantly – reconnect the community.
To make this dream a reality SpacetoCo needed to partner with an agency capable of delivering a web application that can leverage an Airtasker, Uber and AirBNB (esk) technology stack.
After several strategy sessions held by BirdBrain in collaboration with SpacetoCo it was agreed that BirdBrain would prototype, design & develop a full function web application built in Facebook’s ReactJS frontend library and integrated with ‘Stripe Connect’ to launch a peer-to-peer marketplace for listing spaces, earning host funds and collecting a platform service fee.
Another intricate feature was the Geo & availability search tool which allows customers looking for a space to search by their location and filter by: space availability. attendees, amenities and price. Other bespoke core functionalities included; event triggered email notifications, in dashboard peer-to-peer messaging, Facebook sign-up and login, Host and Spacer reviews and a custom built drag-n-drop space image upload via Google Cloud Storage integration.
