Introduction

So, you have an idea to set up a coffee shop right here on Vladmirskaya Square and it seems to be interesting. Open SME Business Navigator application, find how much the rental costs, all competitors located nearby and when the company pays off. You send a business plan to a partner, get a loan in a week, and open a coffee shop in two months without leaving your application. Exactly, it is so simple!

Intro

SME Business Navigator is a free tool, that offers comprehensive assistance to entrepreneurs from finding a space to rent and franchise catalogs to business plan calculations. In March 2017, we won a tender for the service development in partnership with Everpoint company. Everpoint team undertook the analysis of geodata and development of a web application; our team was engaged in mobile development.

Project task

We had a large-scale web-service at our disposal. We needed to use all its functionality and create a simple mobile business tool.

Solution

To simplify the work with the service, our team made two applications for first-time entrepreneurs and experienced ones. In this case, we’ll talk about an application that helps people set up their own business.

When I had calculated a business plan there for the first time I flipped out over a pretty look of the document that this app generates. By the way, it is also free of charge. We took the best elements of the web one and packaged them into a mobile tool that businessmen can use on the way to work!

Selection of prospective area

If you want to choose the right place to set up a cafe, a shop or a beauty salon, the application will show the most profitable areas in terms of unrealized demand and supply ratio. Tap on a zone on the map or select an area in the list and see what business areas are in demand in this part of the city. The calculation is available in the application for 172 cities of 85 constituent entities of the Russian Federation at the moment of writing the case.

Selection of appropriate business

Let’s say that you have 500 thousand rubles, and you do not know what to invest them in. Enter the amount and select a business from the list. You’ll be surprised to find out that it’s possible to set up your own business when you have only 100-200 thousand rubles. The cost of a mobile devices repair shop will be 166 thousand rubles, for example. SME Business Navigator offers its users 90 types of business in the city. We assigned to each sphere a special icon and color to make navigation in the list easier for users.

Avoid unnecessary complications using the map

On the map you can see competitors, commercial and state real estate. Look at deciphering the designations and hide unnecessary things by means of filters to avoid unnecessary complications with icons. You can get brief information about an object by clicking on each of them. Put the pin in the place where you want to set up a company and click on «Calculate a business plan.»

Unique illustrations

We adapted all the graphics used in the web service for the application and developed a unique set of icons to illustrate different industries.

View competitors and real estate

Would you like to see all the competitors or an available space for rent? Use the filter and find things you need on the map. If you are sure that you want a restaurant, not a dining room, you can change the format and the niche market in the filters: economy, mass or premium market.

Ready-made business plan in your pocket

The application calculates and shows an approximate business plan for 5 years per second. You can obtain information on investment volumes, payback period, assortment and profitability there. To make the information easy to read on the smart phone’s small screen, we put it in infographics. Save the business plan in your account or send a detailed PDF-document to your partner by clicking on the «Share» button. This document even can help to get a loan from a partner bank of the Corporation.
If the project payback period is longer than five years, the application warns its user about it and such business plan couldnot be calculated.

Personalized Favorites

You have found several places for a coffee shop, added them to your Favorites tapping on the star and gone to look at them in reality. Take photos and attach them to your favorite places, so as not to forget how these properties look inside and outside, what is located in the neighborhood. Take some notes not to keep important things in mind. When you get home, compare all the viewed objects and choose a property based on individual’s preferences.

«People don’t know how to set up a business. There are many details to take into account: personnel, equipment, Sanitary & Epidemiological Services. Business Navigator helps to figure it out. You can do it anytime and anywhere via the application. A user saw the great place, set up a business and everything became clear. The project is in-demand, people use it, and I’m glad that we create something useful.».
