Railwaymen is still growing, started as a small company, established by 3 friends who share a passion for Ruby on Rails and now hire more than 30 people and still searching for talented ones.
During 2015, we were expanding portfolio with mobile apps, cooperation with a startup HomeAhead. It is a company operating in the real estate, product owner Homeahead Wishlist. This product is a fresh idea in this kind of industry. Wishlist Homeahead application is available on iOS and Android. Moreover, it is possible to install the extension for Chrome that works similar to wishlist. Applications are available on the AppStore and GooglePlay, the extension can be downloaded directly from the HomeAhead website.
How does application work?
The application allows you to create wishlist. Thanks to integration with popular real estate sites in the US, such as Redfin, Homes, Realtor, PrivateLabel, HAR, etc., the user view the property on the mention websites, can add them to the appropriate wishlist. In addition to adding to wishlist using the button, there is also the possibility of adding real estate directly from the application by typing the address or link to the property.
It is possible to invite other users to your wishlist who see added to the property and each of them can comment. To comment, you can add an attachment, e.x. video, picture, pdf. We are currently working on the chat that allows conversation between all members of the wishlist.
The application is continuously developed mainly on the basic of feedback from the market.
