Our client launched a crowdfunding campaign across the Web for their breakthrough innovation – a smart control kit called Slide which can be installed on any existing horizontal curtain to motorize it and make it smart. They selected R-Style Lab for our proven software engineering background and a reputation for selecting the best technology stack to get the maximum outcome.
To make the Slide project go live and get pre-ordered systems delivered to their first customers, R-Style Lab’s mission was to build the back-end server part of the solution.

Our customer has ambitious ongoing plans for the project, including further integration with voice assistant systems. For this, they are planning to engage the R-Style Lab team into its further development and maintenance.
