Why We Are Building Floom

DO NOT REPEAT YOURSELF.

It's one of the core principles of software development. Yet, every year, thousands of SaaS companies are draining resources writing nearly identical code to handle user authentication, user management, and customer billing. Floom is here to change that.

Microservice software architecture tends to follow a very clean pattern; they take simple inputs and don't rely on outside context for service fulfillment. Floom takes advantage of this to integrate directly with your API with little work on your end (we're talking on the order of 10 lines of code). From there, let Floom do the heavy lifting of user authentication, customer billing, customer purchase history, and marketing.

How Floom Works

The Process

Step 1. A Service is Born

Devin (the developer) has created a tool which generate subtitles for podcast episodes.

Step 1

Step 2. Devin Publishes her Service on Floom

Devin writes a short description of her service and decides to charge $1 for any transcription up to 30 minutes. She tells Floom that each service requires an uploaded audio file, and that new requests should be sent to her API endpoint at https://audio-transcription.net/prod.

Step 2

Step 3. Pete Buys Devin's Service

Pete the podcaster finds Devin's service in Floom's marketplace. He uploads his audio file and purchases Devin's service.

Step 3

Step 4. API Request Sent to Devin

After Pete buys Devin's service, an authenticated API request is sent to Devin's endpoint, complete with a link to Pete's uploaded audio file.

Step 4

Step 5. Devin Sends a Response

Devin receives the service request and fulfills the transcription order. She sends the transcript back to Floom through a POST request as JSON.

Step 5

Step 6. Client and Payment Resolution

Pete receives notification that his transcription is ready, and Devin receives the $1 payment to her account.
