Western International School of Shanghai (WISS) realized the need of a mobile app for their most valued partner ie., the parents of the their wards studying in their school. Once they decided that need to have a mobile app they searched and focused on Mobatia as their trusted developer to build their mobile application.
From the concept stage itself WISS authorities had an idea of their app and the requirements. They discussed the details with us and chalked out a clear design and features that need to implemented in their mobile app for school.
They preferred to have the split menu in the home page listing our all the features of the app so that the app users will find it easy to find the options and access it.
The audience for the WISS app was on 2 types of users, Guest and registered users. WISS preferred to generic and public information with all. However they want only registered users approved by the WISS authorities to access specific, internal academic and personal information.
Mobatia addressed this requirement by integrating and implementing and user registration and access from the WISS authorities via a CMS backend. Mobatia used PHP and MySQL setup and CMS and database for WISS app.
