About the project

Our client is a UK-based PropTech and PlanTech startup that provides a geospatial intelligence platform for a local and national government, as well as investors and property developers. Using data from various sources including Local Authorities’ databases, a powerful algorithm analyses the sustainability of over 29 million land parcels in England and Wales by a set of criteria ranging from the closest town’s population to detailed information about the site’s ownership allowing users to identify properties or land suitable for the development.

Product features

GDPR compliance

All data transmitted between the backend and frontend is encrypted. Sensitive user data can’t be accessed directly and only a limited amount of administrative users can view general data.

Green/blue deployment

Implementation of the green/blue deployment approach ensures that new releases won’t cause downtime. This also gives an opportunity to manage traffic effectively and implement A/B testing. 

Story Maps

Admins can create immersive stories by combining text, interactive maps, and other multimedia content. It can be used to run public consultations and receive feedback on planned development.

Multi-tenancy

Each tenant has an access to the platform using their own URL. Colors/texts and data shown can be configured and is specific for each client. Data is strictly separated to avoid any leaks between clients. 

Version-based configurations

Users can create custom questionnaires, map storytellings, and dashboards of any complexity. Each configuration is versioned and can be re-used as a template.

SAML / SSO

Users can access the platform not only with traditional email password pairs but also using 3-rd party vendors with the help of SSO like Azure. The platform also supports SAML login for some of the clients.

Feature flags

Clients' features are separated by the feature flags, which allows them to turn on and off access to specific services for a separate client.
