Bolster is a Design and Build Firm reinventing the home renovation experience. They use proprietary data and technology to help homeowners quantify the true costs of their individual projects.
In 2019, Bolster sought to create 3 different custom tools to help serve its stakeholders, from realtor partners to potential homeowner clients. Notably, they wanted these products to be available within a matter of weeks.
To do this, Bolster partnered with Airdev to develop 3 custom no-code web-based apps on Bubble in just 6 weeks per app.
Bolster’s goal was simple. They needed to provide their various constituents with useful, educational tools that would serve them and achieve the following core business objectives:
To do this and meet ranging client needs, Bolster looked to create 3 different tools:
Needing the 3 products to be available quickly, Bolster looked to low- or no-code solutions as the way to develop these tools faster than traditional development. However, they still needed the technical expertise of an agency to help build these custom tools. Airdev had the prior experience to launch complex tools in weeks, so Bolster partnered with them to develop 3 custom no-code web-based apps on Bubble.
With an understanding of Bolster’s customized tool requirements, Airdev began its standardized rapid and iterative build process in the no-code development platform Bubble, adhering to the following 6-week development timeline for each app:
From start to finish, Airdev kept Bolster at the center of its development process. They encouraged collaboration at each step through a proprietary in-house project portal (which is also built on Bubble) and ensured that everything was documented and consolidated.
“I was able to get notifications via email, and they kept me updated…Airdev has a keen ability to quickly understand the nuances and specifics of their clients’ needs and industries.” -Nicole Kaes
In just 6 weeks per app, Airdev built and deployed 3 mission-critical web apps for Bolster:
The result was 3 fast, accurate, and detailed self-service web tools that allow potential customers to get personalized renovation estimates in seconds. With this powerful no-code technology, Bolster is able to apply its continuously-growing dataset to offer more accurate pricing to its constituents.
Given the success of the tools and model, Bolster has raised $2.8M in funding and continues to empower homeowners and realtors in New York City.
“Our existing clients who are using the homeowner portal love that they can filter the documents by type or see their timelines. So far, everyone has raved about the clean design and easy functionality of the tools.” - Nicole Kaes
