Knowing your audience
One of the stepping stones towards the development of the on-demand app is identifying your audience and knowing them. Identify your target audience. Classify them according to their lifestyle and profession, in order to understand them. This classification will help you understand their genre of interest as well as work. Unless you completely know the various sectors of their needs and work, you will not be able to move to the next step, which is an identification of their problem.
Define the on-demand app
Define the functionalities of the app thoroughly. The expectations that the customers should have from the on-demand app, should be well-defined. This will help the startup to have a clear guideline, along with helping them to understand, whether the problem identified in their potential customers are addressed successfully or not.

Identifying their problem
By completely knowing your audience, you will be able to identify their problems. For example, if your audience belongs to a fast moving city, they probably will look for on-demand services such as taxi booking services, online food delivery, grocery delivery, salon or spa appointment booking. However, if the audience is elderly people, they probably will look for cab booking apps, home servicing apps, medical and healthcare apps or perhaps an app that will, in case of emergency send alert to local hospital, police station and NGOs who work for elderly people.
Create feature sets for each of the actors
It is important to create and define feature sets for each of the actors such as the customer app, the driver app as well as the admin web app. The features for each of these apps are different. Hence, the features for each needs to be defined. This will act as a guide for the mobile app developers along with giving high featured apps for each of the actors.
Hire the best developers
