my case studies

Here is my take on the problem statements which were of particular interest to me. For ease of scanning, these have been structured as follows:
Metrics
Approach
Recommendations
Artefacts
Make hotel booking more easy by giving distance from hotel to various places in the app itself and add delight to the user.
Currently users can’t view the distance between a place and the property. To view it, user has to remember the property name and then find distance between 2 places through Google Maps or Third Party Apps.
Metrics
  • Reduce the average time taken by a user to book a property.
  • % increase in number of bookings after launching these features.
Approach
Existing Solution
The existing app provides distance between few famous places around the property and doesn't give an option to view distance between the property and a desired place. In a segment which is highly competitive, chances of user booking the property through other aggregators when he switches application are high.
Recommendations
Show distance between the property to any place in the city
  • Switch to third party maps applications from the app with property name as the source.
  • Integrate the map application inside the app and provide distance between the property and place of user's choice

Metrics

  • Increase in Average Order Value after launching these features.

Problem Statement
  • Pickily is a hyperlocal supermarket that delivers groceries, vegetables and fruits within 45 minutes in and around Bengaluru.
  • The default location is chosen as HSR (560102) irrespective of the location of the user.
  • Users can’t browse for other pincode apart from 560102 without logging in to the app.
  • Users can’t search with brand names. (Ex : User can’t search with brand names like Heritage or Britannia or others )
Approach
Allow users to browse for all available locations without logging
  • Users can manually enter their location or pincode.
  • Try to get the location of the user dynamically through the GPS or phone's location.
  • User can browse the app without logging and browse with just pincode or area name

My Product Observations

Why YouTube Premium is best?
It's a service that enables you to enjoy music through  without ads
  • Has one of the best recommendation engines.
  • Has a collection that has millions of songs.
  • Has better likes comments for each songs when compared to other music streaming platforms.
  • Can connect it with Google Maps through which you can have seamless travel experience by using maps plus enjoying music
Why Bounce Scooters are best suited to solve last mile connectivity ?
Bounce is India's first smart mobility solution, with a mission of making daily commute stress-free, time-saving, reliable and convenient.
  • Has an option to pick bike from anywhere and drop anywhere.
  • Seamless experience to switch on and off bikes with iOT and Bluetooth technologies.
  • Has option to rent EV bikes daily, weekly and monthly enabling cleaner transportation.
  • Before booking bike, it clearly mentions about range of the bikes which helps in planning the ride in better way.
Why Truecaller is more than a Caller ID App?
Truecaller is a smartphone application that has features of caller-identification, call-blocking, flash-messaging, call-recording, Chat & Voice by using the internet.
  • Helps user to know if the other person is on another call.
  • Intimates user if the other person's phone is on Silent Mode.
  • Can view information of phone number in other apps(WhatsApp, Telegram) also.
  • Can look up numbers in a pic through Truecaller camera.
Why Hinge Dating App is better personalized dating App?
  • Signing up for an account on Hinge is considerably longer than most dating apps. This is because Hinge was made to match people who are looking for serious relationships.
  • Hinge wants their members to delete their app once they find a date they really connected with. While other dating apps is more of a right swipe based on a appearance, hinge helps users to have relationships based on interests and views.
  • Sending likes is more than just a tap of the heart button. If you want to send a 'like' to another Hinge user, you have to choose a particular part of his or her profile that you like. It can be a photo or any of his or her written answers.
  • You can also send Rose to him/her instead on just liking the profile or swiping right which is more personalized than just right swipe.
