Summary

Mr. Brian McKnight, an American singer-songwriter, actor, arranger, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist brought forward an idea where the popular public figures and their fans could all be on the common platform. The fans could easily approach their favourite artist, athlete, celebrity, etc with their wish, and the artist could fulfil those wishes through personalised custom videos for their fans. A fan gets their wish fulfilled, an artist gets their deserving payment for the service, and System administrator gets its share for bringing the two together, a Win-Win situation for everyone. iZoticus Technologies made this wishful thinking possible by working closely with the client, understanding, and analysing the requirements from business, stakeholder, and system perspective to add value wherever required, and delivered the quality product with presence on Web, Android and iOS platforms.
