Client

Our client is a USA-based entrepreneur. Being in need himself of a possibility to buy or refill essential home fuels and having witnessed that the process is complex for his neighbors as well, he saw a need for on-demand fuel supply and delivery service for this specific purpose.

Business needs

Fuel supply in the USA is considered to be a serious activity regulated by American law. So, the supply and delivery market has little to offer with regards to the provision of essential home fuels. The search and purchase of home essential fuels become a burden for ordinary people in every state, who use them for cooking (barbeque), boiling water, lighting and heating. Being unable to order essential home fuels in a fast and simple way, the client saw that this became a potential problem that needed a quick solution.

To make essential fuel purchase and refill accessible for the local citizens and delivered in a convenient legal way by couriers, the client decided to develop an on-demand application with these specific options.
