We asked GetUrban founders, João Vitor Fagundes and Vinicius Heinz Knaesel, about building an app that connects skilled labor to people who need service in building. João Vitor got to know Bubble through a close friend in December of 2019 and has been developing applications and learning more about it since then. He chose Bubble because it offers all of the features necessary to develop great applications in a shorter timeframe than with traditional programming.
Tell us about your app and what it does.
GetUrban is a platform that connects skilled labor to people who need service in building.
How does your app work?
The operation of the platform is simple: the professional makes a basic registration, with information such as the area of expertise, skills, and services. It creates a profile, as in a social network. The customer can enter and search for a specific service or a professional, and the selection is made according to the filters placed. After selecting the profile, the customer can see the portfolio, location and request a budget through a chat within the platform itself. There is also the option of a quick search, which does not require login - in this case, the platform selects three professionals as a suggestion.
Tell us a little about your background and how you discovered no-code tools like Bubble.
João Vitor: I got to know Bubble through the appointment of a close friend in December of 2019 and, since then, I have been developing applications and improving my knowledge about it. Something interesting about code / low code development is the perception of frequent evolution as a developer.
Why did you build your app on Bubble?
When I got to know Bubble's platform and everything that was possible to develop with no-code, I preferred this development method. With Bubble, it is possible to develop great applications in a much shorter period than with traditional programming.
What have been your milestones or successes so far?
We've had over a thousand views on the site, more than 100 registered users, and more than 50 service budgets. We are also in pre-incubation with CoCreation Lab Biguaçu - SC / Brazil.
What are your future plans for your app?
Our goal is to be a reference company in technological solutions for the Civil Construction sector, previously in our country (Brazil) and later worldwide. We currently have a new solution under development which will connect building material stores to customers, through a White Label online store on our website. We believe in our scalability potential to become one of the biggest startups in our region.
