Users can request calls by contacting an education expert in their area or in remote locations. The professional puts a minute rate for the consultation and the price is calculated automatically during the call. Each call request includes a cover letter where parents talk about their needs, goals, describe their kids and their current learning methods.
The application supports Paypal and credit card transferers. The payment has to be complete in order to send a request.
Both parents and experts can specify their preferred timing for consults. The application supports various time zones and automatically synchronizes users that are located in different zones by converting their time.
All discussions and requests are divided by topics (parenting strategies, discipline, positive motivation, love and logic, and others). For each topic, parents see the list of top experts in the niche and can reach out to them.
Users have personal profiles with real-time schedules. As soon as a new consultation was approved, the schedule will synchronize timing, request details, profiles of involved users, and send alerts.
Parents and experts can connect their social media account to provide higher visibility of their expertise in learning and build deeper connections with other members.
Experts receive full description of all conducted consults, their duration, and cost. They know how much they receive in a certain period of time and can manage their financial activity.
The app team receives a fee from each consult. The amount is calculated real-time and user can get a status update on current fee size anytime.
Users can see how many consults that've had in a certain period of time and divide them by status: Active, Upcoming, Failed, Archived.
The consultation can be cancelled if one of participants leaves a request. Another member gets notified right away with the cause of the cancellation.
The application sends an alert whenever there is a new consult request, cancellation, or if it's time for the consult.
Taking this opportunity I would like to thank the employees of the company Rocketech for the high quality of work, efficiency and timely assistance in solving urgent issues in the development and implementation of the frontend for the service babystep.

I hope for further long-term and equally fruitful collaboration in the future.
Over the course of development, our team adapted to user feedback and market trends. At the initial stages, BabyStep was conceptualized and executed as a web system. After the MVP was released and users presented feedback, we redesigned the solution and released the new version.
The LMS was rapidly growing, and in 6 months, it was apparent that target audience is interested in a mobile application. Our team dynamically adapted to new demands and supplied the client with mobile app developers. Because the team was managing the project from its early stages, we were able to reuse a lot of code on each of these stages, saving a lot of time and money in the process.
