Aparto is a property management service to facilitate transparent and efficient communication between apartment building managers and tenants. It is a platform for tenants to provide consistent customer feedback to managers and apartment seekers in order to help with the apartment hunting process.

I worked in an interdisciplinary team of four students, communicated a mobile service that is desirable for a target set of users, analyzed the technical feasibility, determined the financial viability, and pitched to venture capitals.

In this group project, my responsibilities included researching target users, designing personas and scenarios, and analyzing competitors and value opportunities.

This is a project from the Designing Mobile Services course, taught by John Zimmerman and James Morris at the Carnegie Mellon Human-Computer Interaction Institute.
