Automation is now within EndorseFlow. Although our product is not yet out, we are working hard to release a working version for early users and beta testers.
Automation not only allows users to seamlessly make life easier, but gives us an upper-hand in competition for our market sector. We're looking forward to releasing this features along with the full product.
Surprisingly, this feature was not hard to program. However, this may change as we scale and find new issues with how jobs/tasks are run concurrently.
An update. We're getting closer to being a complete service with everything we need for a beta release (this does not include our mobile and tablet applications, those are later in the pipeline) - we're excited.
Seeking investors is going... well it's just going at the moment. We're trying, pitching, and not giving up on our end goal - to take EndorseFlow to market. We'd also LOVE to employ other developers and valuable team members to grow with the company. Funding can assist with all of this. The search continues, and we will pitch more once we have a beta product for our next set of investors to use and try for themselves (we think our first no-no when told them lines "no, you're too early", was not having a finished beta product to use and interact with)
The journey continues...
There is a market for our product, and there is growth within the market - we have competitors. Bootstrapping is possible, but for real growth, I believe you need investors.
Our Pre-Seed round was self-funded by myself, but ultimately, not close to being enough. We're now networking and seeking Angel Investors for our seed round... ah, the joys! No, but really, it's quite fun!
We're using networking platforms such as LinkedIn and Angels Partners. Let the fun begin...
Fast-forward to April 2021, the pandemic is still ongoing, but businesses are getting back to so-called normal. Our MVP is almost done, and I am super excited about the progress. This has been something I have been working on full-time as a solo developer, and the long hours are starting to pay off!
Our main web application is written in React as a SPA (Single Page Application). We accompany this with our RESTful API written in Node.js - both deployed on AWS as our cloud provider. For data storage, we use MongoDB, and for object storage we use S3. All of these technologies are of that I am familiar with and have used for years prior to this venture.
We incorporated the company, EndorseFlow Ltd. Yay! Prior to this, we established our name and branding - but after that, we took the step to make it a legal entity. Something I was very excited about with this, was our London virtual office that handles our mail and is our registered address, very cool, I know!
This is just the start...
Adding value to team's and freelancer's lives. I want to make a positive impact on the lives of those working in the market for our product, increasing productivity, and lowering costs.
