They are informed, easy to work with, and communicative, bringing plenty of experience to the table. Overall, the quality of the work is brilliant. My business partner was skeptical about outsourcing it initially, but he ended up having his current applications rebuilt by Wolfpack too.

context

FlexiDrive connects learner drivers and students with driving instructors in real-time, and offers the opportunity to analyze an instructor's profile and experience, and get to know them prior to the lesson.

Once the instructor is selected, the learners can easily book lessons by simply sending out a booking request to all the instructors in their area.

the challenge

The challenge to develop the FlexiDrive apps for both iOS and Android from scratch was the user Interface creation, as it needed to be an intuitive solution for young students and engage them to create the account easily, select a lessons package and browse a suitable and available instructor based on the learner's geolocation.

the solution

The final solution was the UX/UI creation and development of iOS and Android apps that allow each driver instructor to create a profile with personal info, profile picture, and ratings and reviews from previous students.

For the learners, the apps provide a lot of flexibility, so that they can book a lesson wherever and whenever suits them, send out live requests to all local instructors, record their progress by tracking all the lessons and the feedback from the instructor, and get the full license by cruising through the lessons at the wished pace.
