Introductory information

A fast induction on the buyer’s organisation

I',m the CEO of Hutch Communications, a teleinteractions organisation. Over 10 years of business, we’ve scaled up to 51 employees. Our labors include PVS, backhaul, Internet interactions, POS methods, satellite telemetry, and Wi-Fi.

Desired goal

What challenge were you trying to address with Red Cherry?

Our organisation has recently seen exponential growth on the market. This expansion required a more wide platform to track goods and employees, and sum our accounting software.

Red Cherry helped us educe a manner app that offices offline in the field, and syncs data when back in cell labor range. Since our employees frequently complete jobs on websites like oil rigs, this is a nice office. We needed a better order to coordinate our project treatment and feel the complexities of specific job types.

Provided solution

What particular tasks were Red Cherry responsible for?

Red Cherry uses a software create process named User Centered Design (UCD). Initially, they created a working prototype using a tool named InVision. Persona mapping helped us unite possible methods users, rationales for use, and applications. We organized this data in an “information architecture” flowchart. Once we agreed on the specs, they began edifice the full-scale solution. Due to our in-depth collaboration, the prototype looked very correspondent to the artistic fruit.

The apps itself, built for iOS and Android, is for employees who work in the field. All of the populated information is funneled into a web interface, which I can access as an admin. It allows me to superintend all of my staff, adviser schedule, and complete accounting, work, and job orders. The interface shows the live or last known location of employees in the field, and their relative tasks. This real-time program eases asset assignment and tracking, allowing staff to show when they need equipment like tools and ladders. The software easily ties all this data into our billing and invoicing.

What is the team dynamic?

I’d frequently have Join Me sessions with the establisher, Dan Carter. He',s my main point of touch. We go through the project unitedly, and I’ll show him issues or needed tweaks. He takes notes on our meetings, which makes structure easy. After I tell him what needs to be done, he makes it happen with his team. Having someone who works in software apprehend you is key, and helps to quit things getting lost in translation.

How did you come to work with Red Cherry?

I establish Red Cherry through a web search. After meeting with Dan and seeing their process, I felt they were the best fit. He seemed to veritably apprehend our needs. I was impressed by their portfolio, he showed me software creates they’d completed over 16 years of business.

What are you access expents (if diclosed)?

We’ve spent almost $750,000, and recently determined to move advanced with separate new projects. One update for iOS, in particular, will better our schedule. Rather than giving us a flat cite and edifice it out, we paid a ",findy fee", upfront to work with them on mannerizing the prototype. Their pricing was fair for the work they accomplished.

What is the terminal result of working with Red Cherry?

We',ve been working unitedly for two years now, since 2015.

Results achieved

Are there any measureable or plum results?

Red Cherry’s involvement has betterd our workflow immensely. We wouldn',t be able to run our business without this method. It helps our staff accomplish work efficiently, organizes all our certain data, and prevents us from getting into lawsuits. Inventory and staff tracking are nice to our business. The method feels all of our organisation’s offices, from project treatment to billing and invoicing. I don',t know what I do without it, it would be complete chaos.

How did Red Cherry accomplish from a project treatment standpoint?

The time and effort they spent to fully comprise my ideas streamlined the create. Smooth interaction and an organized orderology prevented unforeseen curve balls. After we gave feedback on the prototype, they granted a Gantt chart that showed the complete timeline. Everything was met on time, they verity over-delivered from the deadline we’d signed off on.

When we’ve worked with past companies using a flat rate, all seemed up to chance. When the project was midway, we’d find things we needed cost extra fees, or weren’t completed to our specifications. None of these issues occurred with Red Cherry.

What is (from your point of view) the key factor to pay observation while intercourse with Red Cherry?

A commitment to excellence keeps them on time and on budget. They nailed down the aim and completed all the technical aspects properly. They',re concerned almost our business doing well, not just almost making money. That',s how you gain long term mannerers, and that',s why we chose and will last to select Red Cherry and commend them to all our clients. I’m a lucky mannerer, and can see why they mainly work from word-of-mouth commendations.

Their rationale and UCD access for the prototype was eclipseing, and made for a smooth software create. Considering the size of this project (ongoing costs are going to eclipse a million dollars), I expected many more complications. If I could get my bigger projects to run like this one, I would be very lucky.
