Cross Browser & Platform Compatibility (Web, Mobile, Android, iOS etc.)
The application was expected to be developed using React Native Web & Node JS, whilst React Native was a cross platform framework, which was relatively new to the industry. As such, the biggest challenge faced by Auxenta was to build an inhouse React Native Web expert group. The development team assigned to the project gave its fullest commitment and showed remarkable hard work in successfully mastering this technology and proceding with the project work as expected.
The application also uses commonly available medical and healthcare related APIs (Clinical Trials, Surveys, etc.) to provide extended features to patients. Integrating with such APIs and only enabling applicable information to respective users was a challenge that was overcome through extensive R&D.
Also, ensuring the application is cross browser and cross platform compatible for both Web and Mobile (Android, iOS, etc.) for various commonly used devices was a challenge entrusted to the Dev and QA teams.
