    Hi My name is John, I am working on the development of a new mobile app for a startup on Uk. The scope of the project includes a functionality for users to request a video call with one of our medical specialists. Just to clarify, the complete flow is the following:
    1. Users requests a call. The app displays a list of available doctors and their schedules.
    2. User pick a schedule and must perform and anticipated payment.
    3. Once payment is confirmed, both user and doctor receive an email with the details of the meeting. This email should include instructions to join the video call.
    4. Once the call is completed user receives an email with summary of the meeting and further instructions.

    We are looking for a provider for the videocall functionality and would like to know If your service can meet the requirements.

    1. Calls would have an average duration of 45 minutes and rarely exceed the hour. Anyways the call should be terminated.
    2. The user will join the meeting from his cell phone. He should not be required to download other app.
    3. Doctor should join meeting from his phone too. However, if your service could allow him to join from a pc too would be great. Some additional questions that we are interested in are: • ¿Does your service include a channel for support? ¿Do you have a team that could answer requests on Spanish?

    • What pricing plans do you have? Our app will be released in a couple of months. We expect a flow of no more than a thousand videocalls per month for the first months.
    • The app is developed on Expo (a hybrid framework for mobile development) and will be released for Android an IOs. Does your service provide an API? An SDK?
    • Have you measure performance on South America territory? What is the required bandwidth for a fluid videocall?

    I await your response

    Many thanks
