  • Crafting a comprehensive app: Integrating diverse functionalities into an intuitive, scalable, and secure application posed a complex challenge, demanding seamless design and adaptability.
  • Unifying communication channels: Fragmented communication methods led to miscommunication and dissatisfaction, requiring a cohesive solution to streamline interactions.
  • Simplifying maintenance requests: The disorganized and time-consuming process frustrated both residents and property managers, necessitating an efficient, centralized system.
  • Boosting community engagement: The lack of a dedicated platform for event planning and promotion hindered resident involvement and made gauging success difficult.


  • All-in-one solution: The app skillfully combined multiple functions within an intuitive, scalable, and secure interface, catering to the unique needs of diverse residential communities.
  • Streamlined communication: The app’s unified messaging and notifications feature enhanced interactions, eliminating the need for multiple channels and reducing miscommunication.
  • Centralized maintenance management: A built-in maintenance request system simplified submission, tracking, and prioritization, increasing efficiency and resident satisfaction.
  • Dynamic event platform: An integrated event management feature empowered seamless planning, promotion, and participation, fostering a stronger sense of community.


Design Process

Analysis of other existing competitors in the market

First, I search existing apps on the play store related to security management and got some interesting apps like My Gate, NoBrokerhood, Adda, and Apna Complex. I read reviews of people which helped me to understand users better and help to understand the market condition.


  • Some apps provide digital cards for approval but user face problems in handling them.
  • Multiple advertisements can waste user time and focus diverted
  • Different society-related information is delivered through an app.


User Persona

Data collected from user interviews helped in the process. Persona gives me a complete idea of my target user’s goals, frustration, and nature. So, I can design a simple and clear path.
