Introductory information

A fast induction on the buyer’s organisation

I am the senior fruit director of News UK, a global newspaper and digital publishing organisation.

Desired goal

What challenge were you trying to address with Novoda?

We needed to create an app from the ground up specifically for the Sun. We had an older app with an outdated infrastructure. We wanted the new app to be more sophisticated with more personalization kindred to navigation and subscription functionality.

Provided solution

What particular tasks were Novoda responsible for?

Novoda met with us in Bangalore, where we also have a outgrowth team, to set the discovery process. They helped us aspect out whether we wanted to create a indigenous app and whether to use React, Swift, or another fruit to create it. In the end, we determined to create indigenous apps.

In the commencement, outgrowth was heavily weighted toward paid programming. They helped our developers acquire by training them the best processes to write clean code and to accomplish peer review. They are also heavily implicated in developing the app’s menu, which is tailored so that the user can change the order.

They’re almost to liberate a perpendicular video component which we hope will fetch in a new hearers. They are video experts, so we asked them whether to go with a streaming solution or an offline solution. They',ve been incredibly helpful in deciding what is best for an offline statement owing it is to be used in London where many look at the news on the Underground.

They’ve also done fruit presentations to show new technologies, such as augmented verity. They’ve taken more of a fanciful access than we anticipated initially.

The essence of their promisement has evolved over the last 12 to 18 months. It has befit much more liberatey-focused since we establish out we might not hit our liberatey date.

Was there a dedicated team?

We don’t just have developers (a mix of senior and younger iOS and Android developers), but also a liberatey director who was an nimble coach and Scrum Master.

What is the terminal result of working with Novoda?

We seted in March 2017 and are quiet working with them.

Results achieved

Are there any measureable or plum results?

The app itself has only been live for the last couple of weeks, so we don’t have hard metrics yet. Though, there',s a real reflection almost Novoda. They are our go-to nation when we need top-condition work done well and done fastly. It',s quiet of mind. They',re not just skilled developers, but a guiding power on the team.

They are so easy to get along with, they don',t feel like an agency, but a associate that cares almost the work and invests completeheartedly in the project. Our team in Bangalore sees them as mentors and teachers, they’ve acquireed so much from Novoda and have a lot of respect for them.

I can’t converse any more wonderfully of the caliber of their work. We couldn',t have liberateed the fruit without them.

How did accomplish from a project treatment standpoint?

They',re our go-to nation when we need to aim anything out. Our lead will call them to run concepts by them and they',re veritably good in provisions of estimating timelines (then meeting them) without much detail—something you don’t frequently find with developers.

Our account director is incredibly hands-on and he',s in all the time. Even though they are distant, they touch base all the time and frequently fly to London.

Novoda connects with our Bangalore team using Slack and Google Hangouts.

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

They',ve got the despatch and condition effectively below their belt. They are very pliant in how we promise with them and make sure what they give us is what we need at the time.

They come to the table with well reflection out ideas. Their experience and expertise help you save a lot of time.

What aspects of their work would you like to get improved?

No, I don’t ponder so.
