What does the Dental Marketplace app do?

Dental Marketplace was born to help dental professionals find “Continuing Dental Education” (CDE) events and career opportunities.

 

Besides, dentists also can use 2 more features which are called “Marketplace – The Business of Dentistry” and “What’s up”, allow dentists to get more information related to Dentistry in Singapore.

Our goal

Our main goal for the Dental marketplace, is to make an app that would be able to simplify the current way when a dentist want to find CDE Events, a job or some information related to current Dentistry in Singapore.

 

We wanted the product to be equally useful for users, so we have tried to make the best UI/UX with the most exactly information.

ENGINEERING
CHALLENGES AND WINS

 

1

UX/UI

To give a user-friendly interface and easy to use. Each pixel, the position of the interface components are reviewed and checked very carefully. Also through it, iOS developers have learnt many things and have more experience in the interface layout. Therefore helped the finished product much more when it comes to user hand.

2

Integrating QOR

Integrated QOR (CMS platform to manage Developed by Go information, content display on the app) on the backend is one of the most difficult stages in the app development process. Integrating QOR makes code management will be more easier, reduce time as much as possible, the integration also aims to implement notification feature - one of the most important features of Dental Marketplace.

3

Notification

Dental Marketplace always want user be able to get the latest information about Singapore Dentistry as quickly as possible. That requires QOR Admin to be able to send notification to devices after Administrator has created/updated any information. The integrated notification takes a lot of time to implement because it requires overwriting all of methods Save/Update of QOR. The integration has helped the backend developer to understand far more about QOR platform and mechanism to send notification to the mobile app, backend developer now can customize any functions of QOR to apply for one of certain cases to the appropriate more for each project in development process.
