Challenges

Rentometer chose ORIL as a tech partner to develop a new “Batch Processor” tool for their customers. The tool would allow “low tech” users to make a “system to system” connection to Rentometer and automatically submit multiple properties to Rentometer’s “rent analysis engine” in a single batch.

Our Project Roadmap

01Product Design.

The project kicked off with ORIL's in-depth analysis of Rentometer's current offerings to understand user needs and business objectives. This stage was crucial for designing an interface that's both intuitive and accessible to users with varying tech skills, setting a strong foundation for the tools to come.

02MVP Development and Launch.

Next, the team focused on creating the Batch Processor Tool as a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) for internal use. This tool was designed to quickly process a large volume of addresses, with a special emphasis on creating a user-friendly interface and experience. The successful development and launch of the MVP demonstrated ORIL's ability to deliver practical and efficient solutions promptly.

03Growth and Scaling.

After the MVP, the project expanded. MongoDB was integrated to improve data management, supporting the application's scalability. New tools, including the Rent Comp Tool and the GPR Calculator, were introduced to enhance Rentometer's services with features like detailed rental comparisons and income potential calculations. Despite some tools being paused for further optimization, the ongoing development of V2 of the app, showcased ORIL's commitment to continuous improvement and innovation.

UX Process

The ORIL team applied a thoroughly crafted planning and design process called Product Design Phase. This process is designed to maximize chances of delivering a product that satisfies core business objectives and is tuned for end-user’s convenience.
This process includes some of the following activities: competitive analysis, business-product objective prioritization, user flow creation, wireframing and prototyping.

UI Process

ORIL’s designer worked closely with the customer and end users on choosing the right color palette, UI approach and overall look and feel of the product. The final UI design deliverables made a very complex and feature-rich product feel very light, friendly and accessible, while at the same time kept all of the platform functionality available within a few clicks.
