Back in 2008 we were approached by a group of livery companies that were interested in bringing car reservations onto a location based mobile platform—sound familiar?
Unfortunately due to regulatory hurdles that were not cleared until years later, MojoCar never made it to the bright lights and busy streets of New York City. But, we had a lot of fun building and testing a platform that was way ahead of its time.
Using location based services, a custom e-commerce platform, and a smart ride matching and ride bidding back-end, we built a companion set of applications (one for drivers, one for passengers) that we feel would still hold its own against the Ubers and Lyfts of the world today.
We have a strong connection to bike racing at hatchmap. It is a hobby that a bunch of us love, and we were so excited to get a chance to develop software in the industry.
The Red Hook Criterium series is an international track bike Criterium race that takes place in Brooklyn, Barcelona, and Milan. As a leading technical sponsor of the race, hatchmap developed a timing and scoring platform that provisioned race data from our timing partners to a custom mobile application that we developed in house.
Motivated by similar applications that failed to perform well on race day, we are incredibly proud that the RHC Raceday app delivered results to 20,000+ race fans at an average update time of 0.07814 seconds—internationally!
A leading educational book publisher approached us with an existing educational technology platform. The platform was successful but needed a new round of features and enhancements to continue growing.
We took over lead development of the project, and have continued to enhance it through numerous revisions to its present day form.
Due to the enhancements we helped engineer, sales have increased and the project continues to perform very well in a competitor-heavy market.
