TutorTime is an Australian based tutoring marketplace founded by team of expert educators.
The marketplace allows you to choose an individual tutor for any subject within the school curriculum, as well as extracurricular leisure activities (sports, art).
The Tutoring Marketplace is available through the web interface and through mobile applications for iOS and Android.
Build native applications for Android or iOS and reach a broad audience segment. We build solutions that run on any device, regardless of its operating system.
Make your software available to partners so they can incorporate it into their own apps, allowing you access to a wider potential market.
You can connect your app to external services, take orders with custom payment gateways, share sales data—including tax and shipping information—with your accounting system, send orders to a warehouse for fulfillment by way of an integration with Google or Apple services that tracks deliveries in real-time.
Using a CRM API, sync all information into one central location to eliminate issues of multiple data sources. Get the ability to manage leads directly from your email like Gmail or Outlook so that you can engage with prospects more effectively through email marketing and not miss important notifications.
Payment APIs can make the checkout process more enjoyable and seamless for both merchants and customers by allowing businesses to incorporate payment processing capabilities into their existing software.
With payment APIs or gateway services, online retailers can issue refunds for online payments, enable recurring subscriptions for SaaS-based businesses and track customer orders.
Third-party logistics companies need to provide shippers and carriers with information exchange, as well as facilitate connections between them and cloud providers. APIs—such as JSON or XML—allow for seamless integration by connecting ERPs, TMSs, WMSs (and finance systems).
A2 Design provides full-cycle services for development of custom APIs. We’re passionate about creating great software, and we continually strive to improve our skills and processes. We have an established workflow that allows us to create applications quickly and efficiently.
During the discovery phase, we gather your requirements for an API and create a plan to build it. Once those steps are complete, we provide you with cost and timeline estimates. The discovery phase is essential because it helps you reduce the likelihood of failure, ensures that you’re getting exactly what you want — and if not, gives you time to make changes.
To ensure scalability and high-quality software, we design the API architecture.
A well-designed API is easy to understand, use, and maintain.
It should follow consistent style conventions, include built-in security mechanisms for authentication and data encryption, and reliably handle large volumes of traffic.
The first step in designing an API is to clearly define its business use case.
An API that is responsible for an authentication workflow will have different requirements than an API that allows a user to browse a product catalog, so it's important to align on the use case before making any other decisions.
The second step is to decide how each resource should be structured, what sort of data it will need to contain, and how the information should relate to other resources.
It's also important to determine which levels of abstraction and encapsulation you want in your API, so that you balance reusability with legibility.
The product needs to be easily accessible: lightweight registration, testing features and documentation included.
It's time to make the concept a digital reality by creating an API that can handle any component and is up-to-date with technology.
Our teams of developers use a combination of the test-driven development (TDD) and agile methodologies to produce software that meet market demands.
Our team offers maintenance plans that cover a range of services, from emergency fixes to long-term support and product updates.
We continue to make improvements after an API launch in order to guarantee smooth and error-free app operation. To do this, we keep an eye on performance indicators (such as the response time of the server) and user input (to respond quickly if there are any issues).
A clear understanding of how a product is used by real users makes it easier to plan new business development phases, prioritize features and create long-term roadmaps.
Expect that your business needs will be recognized and met when you choose our custom API development services. Because of our expertise, we can come up with workable solutions that adhere to any set of needs and financial constraints.Get a free estimation
We ensure that the user experience is smooth, so developers don't have to waste time learning how to work with our API. We save them time and resources by ensuring a seamless process from start to finish.
Advanced authentication provides control over who has access to an API, including paying customers and business partners.
API authentication rules protect your endpoints and server resources by preventing unauthorized use. We build role-based permission systems that enforce strong access controls to prevent the abuse of all or specific parts of your API.
Our documentation clearly explains what kind of data developers can request from our system and how they should format the requests.
Our APIs can grow or shrink their capacity depending on your team’s or customers' needs. So, if you're starting with 100 users and want to expand tenfold within a month, we can handle that without sacrificing performance.
Our custom APIs are designed to respond within 100 milliseconds— a rate that ensures your applications will run smoothly and quickly.
