Mapstreet is a product being developed by Enliven that enables people to mark their favorite spots on the go and then utilize that data when exploring services like Zillow, Google Maps, and Yelp. Mapstreet is being developed fully in-house as a combination native iOS application and Google Chrome extension. The idea came about when we realized that people, more often than not, search for places based on specific location and not simply by the neighborhood. There are plenty of great neighborhoods around but sometimes one particular street or one particular area within that neighborhood resonates with us more than others.
There is a real disconnect between looking at a map of a neighborhood on our computers and driving around, street to street, to experience the spots we like. You might get home, pull up Zillow, and have no context for which listing was the one on that beautiful street with amazing sidewalks; or the one that was next to the really cool corner shop; or the house that had a good listing but was actually next to that ugly office park.
Mapstreet works by simply allowing you to rate your exact location on a scale from 1 to 5 at any time. Mapstreet then drops a pin on the map that enables you to view, edit, or delete all of your favorite spots.
The application is currently being designed to interface with Zillow, but has plans to connect up with Truilla, Century21, Realtor.com, Yelp, and Google Maps. Your favorite spots in town make you happy and we can help you find the perfect home, rediscover a date night hideaway , or plan a scenic morning run in the places you already know.
We have a big level of trust with Enliven and that trust has never been violated. When things are promised, they're delivered, everything is out on the table, and nothing is ever hidden. We are able to move quickly because of the trust that we've built between our companies.
Having strategy sessions with Enliven prepared us for a successful rebranding and a new user experience driven site. They helped us develop a strategy that was driven by our business goals and we're confident that we are now focused on the right challenges.
Most people's expectations for web applications have become very sophisticated over the past few years. Enliven delivers products that care both about business functionality as well as having that design sizzle.
I needed somebody I could trust, who could get the job done fast, and who could deliver a well-organized product. Enliven did their magic and came back with a great product that the client still talks about today.
