[NEW] Technical document writer for app and software specifications

At Riselabs, we work on multiple startup ideas with minimal documentation and project realisation associated with them during their early stages. We're capable of reviewing client documentation and developing high-level technical specifications, but we have limited time and expertise available to drill deeper into the technical needs of a project. We need someone to help dig deeper into the technicalities of a project, writing up the mechanical hows and whys. Our documents usually consist of a client wishlist and objectives, followed by our high-level breakdown of features and likely complexity. From these documents, we need: - Each feature is detailed to explain to our development team HOW to build a feature and WHY. - Which technologies would be most suitable and why. - Any unknowns or risks - If Native or Hybrid development would be most suitable - Potential ongoing costs and budget concerns - Draw.io or similar flow diagrams - Basic wireframes explaining the functionality - Estimating time required to implement a feature - Highlighting any features that are incompatible, unachievable or in need of further research - Preparing the document for client approval and review - Speaking with clients directly to confirm any unknowns or find out more…

[NEW] Android developer to bring an iOS app to Google Android

We have an app, https://okbutton.app, built for iOS and now want to develop an Android version to support Google users. The app uses an API to connect to a Firebase database to manage user accounts. The iOS app is already fully developed and live in the Apple App Store, with multiple users already using the app daily. We have a full GIT repo of the current iOS app and plenty of design material that explains the app process. You must work with and read the iOS app, as we have little documentation for the actual code. We're looking for an estimate too on the time and cost. We would also like to make a few minor changes to the iOS app if the budget allows.

Reducing inefficiency through software

Everyone from a small one-person business through to multinationals runs the risk of spending money on things they do not need, and nowhere is this issue more prevalent than with business software. Inadequate software is costing businesses thousands, and not just for the initial cost and subsequent subscription, but through lost man hours due to inefficiency. So, what are the tell-tale signs of business inefficiency?   Too many clicks. Your employees and clients having to deal with clunky platforms which are not user friendly or intuitive and in effect have too many moving parts which can be off-putting. Lack of automation. Your employees are spending too much time manually inputting data into outdated CRM systems, which is costing your business valuable man-hours. Lack of adequate data analysis. Accurate reports, be they for marketing, sales or stock purposes are difficult to generate and you do not have a full picture of business health. These inefficiencies will invariably lower employee morale, hinder the customer journey and ultimately cause ongoing damage to a businesses service levels and finances. In effect, you are putting in extra work for no reasonable gain, as well as losing ground to your competitors as well as talented and…

Riselabs Mutual NDA for sharing ideas

We appreciate that you might be sat on the next big thing. Bubbling away in your head, scribbled down on notes and perfectly articulated in a business plan might be the next Deliveroo, Lynda.com or PayPal. And to talk about that idea openly, with a complete stranger, is quite worrying. That's why we've created the Riselabs mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement that we're happy to sign before you tell us too much about your great idea. Of course, we will always protect your idea and anything you tell Riselabs is always treated as confidential - but we understand that our word might not be enough, so please feel free to ask us for a copy of our NDA before starting up the conversation that could change your life. Here's the gist of it: "Confidential information" (the "Confidential Information") refers to any data or information relating to the business of the Client which would reasonably be considered to be proprietary to the Client including, but not limited to, accounting records, business processes, and client records and that is not generally known in the industry of the Client and where the release of that Confidential Information could reasonably be expected to cause harm to…
