Founded in November 2018 in Australia, Shootzu is an exciting start-up in the photography and videography space to assist in building trusted crew (second shooters, solo shooters, editors, assistants and more). It is a platform designed for photographers and videographers to network and assist each other on projects. It is industry-specific and only professional businesses with a valid company number are allowed to join after a thorough quality verification process. After joining, members can post a job including their rates. Local, vetted photographers and videographers can then apply for the job. The contracts are managed by the platform so that the photographers can focus on their core business.

Requirements & Challenges

Shootzu founders were looking for a development partner to bring their existing platform to the next level by refining current features and adding new features with the aim of launching the platform services outside Australia. They were aiming to launch shootzu services to the United States and New Zealand in the next 3 months.

Following were the main requirements of the system:

  • Making the current mobile and web applications bug-free
  • Enhancing their performance and user experience
  • Adding the support of receiving payment in different currencies
  • Enabling off-platform payment feature to improve the traction
