Co-Founder & CTO at Battere

Sloboda Studio is a responsible professional and proactive Ruby on Rails development company! We are very pleased with our cooperation. We would definitely recommend them to anyone in search for good developers and problem-solvers!

Our goal

We’ve provided many functionalities to Batte.re, among these there are two tasks we would like to point out (point out suggested).

The first was he development of a logistic web-app that would track locations of power banks, purchases of new power banks and also identify those delivered to the storehouses. This app was also intended for accounting purposes – employees needed to assign QR (inventory) codes to every power bank and add them into the database.

The second task was to add several new functionalities to the admin panel used by Batte.RE employees, so that they could generate invoices from their database.

Challenges and solutions

The project was quite simple. We developed the first app based on a code written in React.js and Ruby, and elaborated a relevant architecture. For the admin panel, we integrated a ready-made module auth0 (authorization) that connected the existing front-end with the Ruby back-end. We also implemented refactoring and fixed several bugs for both projects.
