Biz4Solutions tailored an innovative app for the aviation industry, AircraftCrews, that helps Airline companies find skilled crew and manage operational activities more effectively. Airlines company owners can create job posts (both regular and contractual) with the desired requirements and job details. They can even hire the most suitable candidate through the app. Airline owners can send requests to pilots & flight attendants for joining their trips. Job seekers can also approach the airlines by responding to their job posts. The app is segregated into three modules: Admin Console, Pilot Module, and the General User Module.

Passengers get important flight-related information right away and can perform tasks like choosing meals, providing reviews, etc.

Developmental Challenges

Our team came across some developmental challenges as mentioned below:


  • Make the app compatible with the iOS & Android mobile operating systems as also the web.
  • Make sure that the app’s performance is not affected even during heavy user traffic.
  • Safeguard the security of confidential data handled by the app.

Outcome

Our tech nerds overcame all the challenges that came their way to build the desired solution. We leveraged the cross-platform capabilities of React Native to develop an app that caters to both iOS & Android users. The web development abilities of React were utilized for creating the app’s web interface. We used AWS to integrate the functionalities of auto-scaling and load balancing so that a sudden increase in user traffic doesn’t hamper the app’s performance. We employed Firebase to add an extra layer of security to the app’s data, ensure secure messaging & protect confidential data from security threats.
