Lockstep teams worked closely with Move Loot's core development group on a variety of ambitious initiatives, including an integrated inventory management application for furniture retailers and a custom logistics system that powered Move Loot's complex distribution network. Lockstep also supported legacy Move Loot infrastructure, including their marketing systems and the core Marketplace application.
Move Loot ceased operations in June 2016 but we are happy to demo snapshots of these projects by request.
Trade was a fully integrated, modern inventory management solution that tied directly into the highly trafficked Move Loot Marketplace. Furniture vendors from small consignment shops to national retailers leveraged Trade to track in-house supply and channel sales through Move Loot's extensive buyer network.
Trade was powered by some of our favorite technologies, including a Ruby on Rails API and an interactive ReactJS front end.
Move Loot moved literally tons of furniture all over the country, from sellers to warehouses to buyers or the appropriate recycling facilities. Their massive coordination effort was handled smoothly with Transporter, a custom logistics solution perfectly tailored to Move Loot's unique needs.
Transporter communicated with a series of systems in order to move products from A to B, including the Move Loot Marketplace and one of Move Loot's proprietary mobile applications. The core system was written in Ruby and the front end was ReactJS coupled with Reflux (an offshoot of Facebook's Flux architecture).
Our team values people over tools, quality over speed and effective communication over technical skill. We have lots of experience launching innovative products, so we help our clients navigate the early product life cycle with best-practice product development strategies.
We've worked with the RideCache team to turn their prototype and wireframes from a concept into a scalable, mobile-ready web application. RideCache is poised to become the one-stop shop for maintaining and sharing information about your car collections, whether you have a garage full of antiques or a single weekend racer.
By maintaining a tight iteration loop and following best-practice Agile methodology we've iterated through numerous sprints since the initial build, adding features and responding rapidly to user requests. The application boasts a clean, responsive interface that leverages AngularJS to give the users a highly interactive, "single-page" feel.
Only two things scare lawyers: Trust accounting and other lawyers. This exciting SaaS solution makes trust accounting dead simple, and ensures that lawyers stay compliant with their State Bar without hiring expensive specialists. TrustBooks has built-in controls to ensure firms stay on track while managing all of the necessary workflows, from printing checks to reconciling accounts. Think of QuickBooks without the headache.
Our priorities during the Version 1 build were simplicity and security. Since accounting tools are intrinsically complex we followed a rigorous "front first" approach to test workflows before any backend functionality was added. And given the sensitive nature of the legal market we took extra precautions against malicious use. TrustBooks users can be confident that their data is being protected by best practice architecture and best-in-class infrastructure providers.
We don't know what the future of journalism looks like, but it probably isn't bundles of paper being hurled at your door by passing cyclists. Instead our bet was on Noozible: News that was "curated, shared and discussed by and with your friends, unfiltered by traditional media." The Noozible team gave serious news enthusiasts the means to create and share their own "noozpapers" in a news-based social network.
Our strategy with Noozible was fast product execution to get core features into the hands of beta testers as soon as possible. Simple workflows and minimalist design let the main draw of Noozible shine through: User-generated news stories. We worked with the Noozible team from day one to implement core value features for the MVP and usage analytics tools that collected rich engagement data. Ultimately these data informed the decision to discontinue after the pilot by carefully measuring KPIs against user acquisition cost and lifetime value analyses.
