Low Cost MVP App built for Startup on NUXT in 3 hours

In this 2nd wave of Covid 19 Pandemic in India many young generation entrepreneurs are coming to help society with their Ideas in many ways they can. In Bihar’s town Muzaffarpur everything is not same as metro cities of India, people were facing lots of issue with travel restrictions to fetch essential medicines and essentials.

A young graduate from Muzaffarpur reached out to me to build a simplest form of web app where he can take online medicine order in Muzaffarpur. The orders received via Whatsapp can be organised and delivered by there volunteers following proper Covid norms. As this was a noble cause and we had to make some kind of MVP overnight for App name decided as Dawa Gaadi we choose Nuxt.Js for making a quick landing page for DawaGaadi.com

Simple Nuxt App Landing Page for Dawa Gaadi

This time we choose to develop our first production web app development using NUXT. The current app is very basic with Server Side Rendering, bi lingual (Hindi & English).

As I have very long experience as full stack PHP developer it was not very hard to build first app on NUXT which is a Vue.Js framework. It took only 3 hrs to setup, customise design for the landing page (bootstrap 5 is used), configure SSR and host it online.

How does my 1st Nuxt App looks on Mobile?

We all know that feeling when we have lost those memorable photos of some holiday or special occasion which are not backed up. Have you though about the consequences for the same mishap if it happens to effect important business files.

Those were the old days of backing up files every evening or night now cloud storage services have came to existence. Cloud storage services are now more scalable, bullet-proof and cheaper than ever, small business and we all can back up and share files with Cloud Storage providers and services.

Storage of all important files online on a Cloud storage keeps all of the business files accessible, from any where and can be shared securely which can keep hassle of multiple backup of files and versions of edits to help your start-up or business work efficiently and smartly. As a business owner in India however there are few key areas to look before choosing the cloud storage provider.

Price is an important concern for startups and small business in India. So you might be  wondering to start with a free cloud storage service while having most of the features that matters to you. I am listing the best of 5 cloud service providers which are best suited for Indian business after comparing their features, popularity, pricing and other aspect by me. 

  1. ZohoDocs
  2. Google Drive
  3. DropBox
  4. OneDrive
  5. iCloud

1 | ZohoDocs

The Indian player which has proven it’s capabilities in cloud products in different verticals choose ZohoDocs .

So, the top three we would recommend our readers are:

Start-ups and small business owners choose the low cost option with lots of features however consider the security also and see if the choice is value for money. And each one of our top three scored well in all these areas.

Mozy and Amazon Drive are really just reasonable cloud storage tools, but for professional use you’ll need a bit more functionality.

Google would be your best free option, but we don’t think it’s quite up to scratch for business use with its lenient password controls and limited privacy settings.

Dropbox is my favourite – it’s a very popular online storage service that’s slick, fast and does everything small businesses need. But it’s fairly pricey compared to Microsoft OneDrive which is another exceptional option and our number one for value for money.

As conclusion We know that starting with free plans from any of the above provider would be a great Idea and even if monthly subscription packages to be needed in future pricing are not very high these days. Choose the partner which is right for you After all your business needs to store and have a backup solution but must avoid the headache of trying to migrate all your files to a new service further down the line.

How SevaMart offers you On Demand Home Services in Patna?

How SevaMart offers you On Demand Home Services in Patna?

There were days when we had to suffer finding technicians such as Electrician, Ac Repair technician , Fridge repair , Water purifier repair technicians in Patna. And all the contacts referred by friends didn’t came to use all the time as many technicians were unprofessional who either didn’t ever came within their promised time or they charged fortune for a very simple repair. Even many of technicians charged a kind of Visit/inspection fee in case we rejected there offer for repair or their service because it was too costly. However these are common issue specially for those people moving to Patna from other parts of Bihar or out of Bihar. As a common man I also had faced such issues multiple time at my business place and at home.

SevaMart recently launched Mobile App for easy booking of Home Services.

Then just by coincidence on a day a company called Seva Mart consulted us claiming they had solution to eliminate these pains for people of Patna at least they told us so. And we were asked to build web application frontend solution for their consumer , mobile app for technicians and backend app to mange whole process of providing on-demand services to their consumer.

A frontend website, mobile app for user , another mobile app for Technician to process bookings/jobs and a backend for office use.

Now people of Patna can book technicians using SevaMart.com website or via phone call. Recently they have launched their SevaMart mobile App on android playstore that you can download right now. I have used the app to book ac repair technician for my office on few occasions. It was quite simple I downloaded the app placed booking with my preferred date time for visit, Got confirmation on my phone for technician visit and guess what I paid via online method as I prefer it over cash. They visited our office in promised time-slot and did the repair work.

Believe me the team of SevaMart is highly focused and motivated towards providing quick, low cost repair services and is gaining few hundreds new users every month.
