Main Street equips aspiring entrepreneurs with everything they need to start, grow and run their own painting service business.
* Main Street joined forces with Hoist.
Main Street was preparing for the next step. Until then, they had no designer working full time. They had only the Bootstrap framework customized with their web app's brand fonts and colors as a design system.
The Design System of a company is complex and ever-evolving. They wanted to prepare the ground to hire their first full-time designer and start developing native mobile apps. I should first migrate Boostrap's library from HTML/ CSS to Figma and then keep Bootstrap and Figma in sync while designing new areas of the web app.
Main Street helps its clients at every stage, from establishing an LLC to branding and marketing of the company. Everyone who has set a company knows how complicated and time-consuming the process is.
My mission was to help the user provide all the data needed to form the company, open a bank account, define services, branding, and marketing. All this info should be carried out in the most uncomplicated way.
I proposed to Zach Davis and John Salzarulo that we divide the data inputs into 4 major areas, each with its own subdivisions:
- Sign Up
- Company and Services
Many Main Street customers had little or no experience in the painting industry. Estimating costs is a crucial part of the business. Even for experienced professionals, making profitable, winning proposals is a big challenge. Therefore Main Street wanted to provide a simple, efficient tool.
I worked with Ankit Gupta and an experienced painting professional to create one of the most complex projects of my entire career. I don't know most of the tools and materials involved in painting a residence or business. The estimation engine is not only a challenge for business owners but also for me.
Production Management Tool
I worked with Frank Lee on a tool for business owners to manage the painting crew remotely. Therefore this tool was divided into 2 apps:
Business Owner App
It takes all the areas and items listed in the Estimation Engine, organizing them logically and simplifying the service's execution.
The Owner can check which areas have already been executed, review and approve them by communicating with the onsite crew.
