What are your thoughts about visiting such events? No matter which choice you are thinking about. It might include a football game, a basketball game, a concert, or a festival. Anything comes to mind. And how does the prospect of traveling somewhere more interesting in addition to these appeal to you? By just touching your smartphone, you may join a large community of people who have similar interests and actively participate in the daily operations of their favorite clubs or music bands. Additionally, you have the option to win rewards for actively participating.
Consequently, our team was thrilled by the opportunity to work together on developing Scala-based iOS and Android mobile apps for events management, which would elevate the industry to a new standard. Upon the client’s approach, he already had a foundational understanding.
Hence, the Agiliway team assists the customer in reviving the platform and enhancing it to its fullest potential. We will guide you through the existing phases and procedures of custom software development.

Primary Features and Stages of Event Management System
To adhere to the client’s specifications, the software development team had to complete the following phases:
- Upgrading to the most recent version of the technologies used for custom software development.
Since the development of the application began several years ago, and stopped a year later, those technologies have already become outdated. The app employs the Scala programming language as its fundamental component and is very adaptable and interoperable with a wide range of frameworks and technologies. Hence, the primary and essential prerequisite was to upgrade it to the most recent version.
- Enhancement of the administrative panel.
The Admin Panel is a crucial component of the program since it controls the whole operating system. The objective was to not only update the admin dashboard to the most recent version but also streamline the admin user’s experience by adding new data and enhancing the manipulation of existing data. Access to this panel is facilitated using C-panel, an independent program that enables event organizers to interact with registered users in their companies. This section of the platform serves as a hub for Managers to dispatch alerts, surveys, or any other forms pertaining to the process of managing events.
- Improvement of the user and event/club identification system.
The identifying technique used by the app for each event or organization differs from the ones already utilized. To prevent any misunderstanding, users must register individually for each organization or activity they want to participate in. By doing so, they will get updates and alerts only related to the event they have registered for.
- Development of templates tailored to certain industry-related events.
To ensure the platform’s proper functionality, we have included the events templates tool. This feature allows Managers and Administrators to add information to the app and test the interaction process with their users. These templates provide more than just basic forms with dates or times; they include specific information on the selected event, the latest changes, and alerts. This form enables real-time contact during and after a game or event.
The Software Scope of the Scala-Based Application
Currently, Scala is not as well favored in the realm of programming languages as it was in previous years. However, because the application dates back to 2017, the availability of the language choice is unquestionable. Our team effectively used Scala’s multitude of benefits to provide optimal solutions for bespoke software development. The project incorporates many different technologies.
- Scala serves as the fundamental framework of the platform, offering versatility and robustness for seamless integration inside the system. It is also compatible with other technologies and services. The project utilizes AWS services for data storage due to their high level of security and convenience, allowing access from any location worldwide.
- Amazon S3 is used in the extensive DevOps component of the platform because of its remarkable user interface and user experience. It is cost-efficient and adaptable and easily integrates with prominent frameworks and technologies.
- React is used for creating UI components and user interfaces, while C-panel is used for managing events.
- To transfer the data from the back-end to the front-end, the JSON format is used in conjunction with the PostgreSQL database.
- The Ruby-based CMS for an online store has been enhanced. This system operates as a monolithic architecture, with its distinct database and the ability to interface with all of the application’s features.
- The Braintree payment system is used to facilitate in-app transactions.
As a result, the Agiliway engineers successfully executed personalized software development, improved the current events management system, met the client’s original specifications, and provided a sophisticated environment for optimal user and events management experiences.
The application provides a wide range of features for those who often participate in various events and want to remain updated with the newest news. Furthermore, the platform provides a wide range of advantages to its customers, such as exclusive deals and reduced prices on merchandise goods, tickets, and more. Additionally, users may engage in thrilling activities and enjoy their time while using the application.
