A complete set of services to help you build
your marketplace platform

Overview

From platform ideation to marketplace development, Cocolabs accompanies you through the entire lifecycle to build your marketplace platform.

There was a time where technology alone was a sufficient barrier to entry to prevent competitors from launching their marketplace platform. This is no longer the case. Entire swathes of the service industry are being disrupted by newcomers, and now even by traditional players.

Companies have a choice either to be spectators to change, much like taxi companies faced with the arrival of Uber or become actors of their destiny by becoming the agent of change.

Ideation

Building on your industry expertise and our platform know-how to deliver a clear roadmap to build your marketplace platform

Ideation is the process of defining the feature set and user experience necessary to successfully launch your marketplace platform. From this process flow four goals essential to your marketplace development:

  • Establish what your Minimum Lovable Product will be (MLP vs MVP)
  • Ensure alignment between your needs and the final product
  • Define a clear roadmap for the upcoming design and development phases of building your marketplace
  • Define a budget and production schedule

Design

Building the ideal user experience to facilitate the purchase of services and accelerate the onboarding process of vendors on your marketplace platform.

Cocolabs relies on a true and tested design process and on years of experience to deliver the optimal user experience to your two customer types: service buyers and service vendors.

We are deeply aware of the fact that buying services is a new experience for many customers, and that selling services is novel to most vendors. We build interfaces for simplicity and build on top of familiar user experiences on service marketplaces such as Uber, AirBNB, Fiverr and the hundreds of other platforms that use our technology.

Take a look at the marketplaces we have launched to get a feel for the user interfaces and experiences that we deliver.
