Groceries shopping can be a huge hassle for students who have busy schedules or mobile disability. Our app BuzzNow aims to solve this issue by creating a platform where students can help each other shop. Besides, it makes shopping a social and fun experience. By offering and receiving shopping help, students get more chances to meet their GT neighbors and start building strong connections within the community.

One-day Project Process
Targeted Users
  • College students living in dormitory who don't own a car.
  • College students who are busy in their academic examinations or other things.
Problems Defined
  • It's always troublesome for college students without a car to go shopping.
  • It's inefficient to drive, market and wait in line for students who have only a few things to buy.
  • It's confusing to bring stuffs for other friends if the shopping list is not clear.
  • It's time-consuming to calculate the cost if helping others bring some stuffs.
The Challenges & Solutions
  • a lack of shoppers to finish the requests for shopping
    1) Shoppers will be paid by tips to improve their motivation;
    2) A ranking list will be used to increasing exposure in the community.
  • how to make a specific shopping list
    Solutions: We provide an advanced search autocomplete function based on Supermarket API. In this way, buyers can make shopping lists with complete products' information like names, brands, pictures and etc.
  • how to set up a trust relationship between buyers and shoppers
    Solutions: We require buyers and shoppers to use their GTID to register our system.
User Task Flow

Task flows helped us to think through the design, before a feature is actually developed. It helped us to interject the user into the flow of the application, and determine if the conceptual model agrees with the user model.
