The challenge

The brief from TruChallenge was a clear one. With notoriety and prizes at stake, users needed to be able to register and respond to challenges quickly. It was also important that participating brands had customised ad-space in order to leave their mark on profile and challenge pages.

How we solved the problem

Through a series of workshops and design iterations with TruChallenge we established a clear vision of the end product prior to the development phase. As is standard with our agile approach, we worked through a series of development sprints, each allowing the client to review progress and to reset priorities where necessary.

Built in React with a Django admin interface, the TruChallenge web app combines streamlined user experiences - such as Facebook login and auto-generated video thumbnails - to quickly onboard users.  A simple filter feature allows users to find the top-ranked responses.

Anyone can nominate friends and family to take part, and dynamic hosting services are used to handle the influx when high-profile challenges are scheduled.

The outcome

The team at TruChallenge have used the platform to run successful challenges with famous YouTubers, Sports personalities and anyone wanting to show off their skills. With a backlog of new ideas to get stuck into, TruChallenge will continue to evolve and we will continue to support them as they grow.

DabApps worked closely with us in the early stages to create a clear vision of where we were going with our ideas for TruChallenge. Being so closely involved in the design process and throughout the build meant we were able to prioritise and align closely to our business goals. We continue to work closely with DabApps as we continue to enhance and develop our business.
