A Mobile App To Manage Your Bills and Invoices

A reputed Indian eCommerce company contacted ValueCoders to develop a mobile application called Mbill that allows users to manage their bills and invoices on their mobile phones conveniently. The idea was to create an easy-to-use, intelligent billing app for smartphones that enables users to generate GST-compliant invoices and quickly track financial accounts. The project was to design an effective app that also offers many other features, fulfilling clients' requirements, including an instant invoice delivery system, quick access to stock-related information, and sales reports. The app would make it easier for users to stay on top of their finances and avoid overspending.

Technology Used:
  • Node
  • React Native

Project Synopsis

The objective was to create an online platform that would give users instant access to their inventory and reports.

To make repeat clients, businesses need to end things on a high note. One way they do this is by issuing an invoice after every transaction. To meet these demands, the client needed an online platform for providing instant invoices, easy access to inventory management tools, and other data related to sales or transactions.

Collaborating with ValueCoders, the client wanted an intelligent billing application that generates GST-compliant invoices quickly. Not only does the app create these invoices, but it also records and maintains all the transaction data.

Project Requirements

The goal is to retain customers, make repeat orders, and keep the company profitable. This app will simplify ‌getting invoices by providing real-time invoices delivered instantly. The most indispensable part is that it offers quick access to inventory management, sales statistics, and other essential tasks.

Type of Users

  • Admin
  • Customer
  • Vendor

Key challenges

  • The major challenge faced during the development of mbill project was data migration. As the client had an existing platform, so all the data was to be transferred to a new platform, keeping in mind that there is no data loss and backups were maintained.
  • Saving and maintaining bulk data related to inventory and reports was also a challenge.

Solution Implementation

Based on the client’s requirement, ValueCoders has successfully developed a user-friendly platform for invoicing and inventory management through which users can quickly generate an invoice and maintain all business transactions. It is a stand-alone application with no dependency on other software and provides POS solutions. Managing accounting and inventory in offline mode and complete security related to privacy and business details adds further advantages to using this application.

Project Flow

Brainstorming
This is the very first step in project execution. It includes information gathering from stakeholders and documenting the same. The final document is based on the SMART rule, which stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound.
After documentation, Wireframes are created which act as a blueprint for defining the look and feel of the platform concerning all functionalities.

Designing Phase
After wireframes get finalized, the UI developer designs every single module along with the theme color. Every module is interlinked with functionality having some dummy data in use.

Execution Phase
As per designs, the backend developer develops all the initial APIs, and frontend developers integrate all available APIs with best practices, making dynamic to all the screens.

Client Request Based Project Delivery
Developers are involved in discussions with clients daily and follow their suggestions, in case of any feasibility challenges developers provide a suitable solution. Clients also mention the Jira and assign the task to developers as per priority. This process helps us to meet client expectations.

The Deployment Phase
After integration or completion of any task mentioned on JIRA, we do unit testing on a local machine and merge it with develop branch and deploy it to the dev server, and testing deployed task on the dev server by the developer. Then send PR (pull request) for the main branch that will be deployed on the live server after review. We are using AWS servers for all kinds of deployment.
