ImagineBC - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, we have been in the SaaS development space for well over 2 decades. However, this is our first foray into developing native mobile apps as part of our service offering.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The two most challenging aspects for us are: Dealing with the usurious nature of Apple and Google’s terms and conditions. Especially their requirement that they receive 30% of in-app digital content purchases. Settling on a UI/UX that will be easy to use but still capture the full functional nature of what we are attempting to design

Erik Rind is the CEO of ImagineBC and an expert in understanding the largely untapped potential that Blockchain and AI technologies bring forward in order to help secure user’s data. He has had significant exposure to writing software in the HCM space and is in the position to bring these skills to his new company. Erik graduated from George Washington University in 1983 with a B.A. in History. Erik has over 30 years of experience in building advanced technology solutions and has been involved in the HR services industry since 1990. His professional track-record includes starting and then selling PowerPay software for $22 million and becoming President and CEO of Lyceum Business Services until 2018, when he chose to embrace his entrepreneurial side. Additionally, Erik is an advisory board member to Vertalo, Dashub, and Health Wizz.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

MLB app. Love the fact that I can watch every pitch of every game of my home team O’s wherever I am. Waze. Hate to admit it because it’s a Google-owned app, but when you leave in the nation's worst traffic location (District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia) an app like this sure comes in handy. SpotHero. Again, when you leave near a large metropolitan area, being sure that you have a parking spot available is very convenient.

How long have you been working on this app?

About 2 years.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

All individuals need to be fairly compensated for the use of their personal data by 3rd parties. Individuals creating valuable content should receive fair compensation for that content. Not have to put it up for free and hope they receive a check from someone like YouTube. Our app is focused on solving these two issues in an integrated way.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

To date, we are not aware of an app that does 100% of what our app does. There are apps (Patreon, Cameo, Dosh, etc) which are address one aspect of what we are doing by no app has yet to match our integration of monetization of personal data along with monetization of creativity.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We are busy creating a web-accessible version of the service so members can register, purchase, and view content or make donations on the laptops as well as on their mobile devices. We will also be adding blockchain secure messaging and live streaming of content in the coming months.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Download the app, using the following invitation code, AzFhUa3, which is the code for one of our national social cause partners, Toys for Tots. Explore around inside the app, check out some of the channel content that is available, but mostly be patient. The key to our success is in numbers so one our community size gets into the tens of thousands, we should be able to start turning every members personal data into new income.
