RoomieMatch Us

Scope

GloboTek’s task was extensive with the RoomieMatch Us build. The brief called for us to handle every aspect of design and development to launch the company. We had to perform large amounts of research to establish how we would build the required functionality and where we would get the property listings from. As a result, the decision was made to use BuddyPress for the networking side of things and bespoke tools for the property listing side of things.

Branding

RoomieMatch Us needed an idea turning into a brand. We worked developing logos, fonts and colour palettes that represented the brand. As a result, the client has various options to choose from to take into the design phase.

Logo Design

During the branding exercise, a logo was designed. The logo represents the industry and the brand. Therefore, it is a fun and young logo reflecting the target audience.

Web Design

The brief calls for strong, bold colours. Thus, a full colour background is used for maximum impact To add contrast, a card based design makes content pop out from the page.

Only BuddyPress could provide the profile functionality needed. As such, we closely reference BuddyPress throughout design insuring the design is compatible.

Web Development

The bulk of development focuses on back end functionalty. A Multi Listing Service provides the property listings raw data. As a result, the listings required importing to WordPress. The importer imports thousands of XML records, creating each property post in full automatically.

RoomieMatch Us has several bespoke features to separate the site from competitors. These include the likes of WalkScore map inclusion with every listing.

Key Features

MLS Import Plugin

RoomieMatch Us gets its properties directly from an MLS aggregation service. As a result, we built a system that processes the listings and imports them to WordPress.

Profile Matching

The primary objective of RoomieMatch Us is to match people as potential roommates. A number of match points are used to score users. Higher scores indicate a good match and are output for users to see. As such, users find compatible roommates quickly and easily.
