Who’s it for?

Our Rhino platform is best suited for startups that have a validated idea and would like their MVP or a new iteration of it.
Developing an MVP can take a lot of time and money. The time to market can be a long process as well. But our proven methods can help you reduce your costs significantly and shorten that timeframe.

Current solutions to getting your MVP to market are not always scalable. Many platforms have limitations and outsourcing can be a very risky way to try to shorten your time to market.

Our Rhino platform leverages our years of experience as well as best practices in coding and product development to your advantage! We use widely used technology stacks, best-practices in development, architecture and cloud infrastructure. We have many pre-built commodity components and features that make the process much faster.

Benefits of Using Rhino for MVP Builds: 

  • Lower the total cost of development by approximately 30-80%.
  • Speed up the development process by up to  80% and hence faster time to market
  • Starting you with a solid foundation to build upon to avoid rebuilds or re-coding
  • Prevent bad coding from the start and hence fewer bugs
  • Build applications with no restrictions while indefinitely expandable and scalable
  • Build a Cloud agnostics solution

Example Project Components: 

  • A Web or Mobile (Web view) application
  • Backend and Frontend
  • Admin back office and user dashboard
  • Users, organizations and roles
  • Sensory data communication and visualization with connected devices (IoT)
  • E-commerce and payment gateway integration
  • Background job processing
  • Notifications, Emails, SMS
