CASE STUDY

Zoomy for transport and delivery apps

Roam Creative is a mobile app development studio based out of Auckland, New Zealand. They design, develop, and deploy a wide variety of mobile applications for both startups and Fortune 500 companies, on several different platforms, devices, and operating systems.

Roam developed Zoomy, an iPhone and Android taxi application. Zoomy connects users to taxis in New Zealand, allowing them to find a taxi ride, track its route and arrival time, book rides, watch your taxi on a map, and pay for your ride. Zoomy is New Zealand’s first real-time taxi service app, and is currently New Zealand’s #1 travel app.

In the back of my mind, I was thinking ‘Do I want to run a real-time network as well?’ Scalability, operations, and writing the mobile client on two different platforms, and maintaining it, felt like a stretch of resources. Because for us, real-time was one of many pieces of the puzzle.
