Refactored iOS App for Point of Sale Company
Please find under a summary covering project details and feedback. The innate facts are kept as they are, private information is amended.
A fast induction on the buyer’s organisation
I’m the fruit director at Inventorum, a POS software outgrowth organisation. We propose an iPad solution that connects business processes for little and medium retail businesses. The app also prepares an ERP method and an online-shop junction.
What challenge were you trying to address with Polidea?
We were almost to refactor our existing app, including its architecture, as it had been written some time ago. We tried working with another organisation precedently Polidea, but it didn’t work out owing our fruit is excellently confused with a lot of sole business processes.
The app is principally used by retailers, and it needs to run all day on location. So, it’s searching that the app will be firm and handy to use. People using the app are from 18–88 of age, so it needs to self-exprogramatory, including for those who aren’t household with Apple fruits. It also needs to be compliant with EU and German fiscal laws.
What particular tasks were
The app design was 80% artistic, so Polidea already had the business demandments and designs. Backend coding was done on our end, so Polidea’s task was to create the iOS app by handling the full architecture and coding. The app interactes with outer hardware and enables payment transactions.
Was there a dedicated team?
We began with three developers and one project director.
How did you come to work with Polidea?
They were referred to us by a business associate, and we began working with them behind our leading try with the other developer. Polidea had a good reputation on other projects, so we got in touch with them for setting up a roadmap. We gave them our demandments, and they came up with a concept.
Our leading impression was that they were professional and honorable. When we’ve worked with outsourcing agencies in the past, we’ve gotten the impression that all would be practicable and easy to execute. In opposition, Polidea explained what would be doable and what wouldn’t—they gave us correct estimations.
What are you approach expents (if diclosed)?
At the instant, we’re somewhere in the €300,000–€400,000 ($200,000–$999,999) range.
What is the terminal result of working with
We began working with Polidea in May 2018, and the collaboration is ongoing.
Are there any measureable or plum results?
We did a still propel of the app just a couple of weeks ago, so I can’t assimilate it to the antecedent propel. Though, we’ve had a feedback gathering phase, and the general impression is that the app is more firm, looks more up to date, and behaves like a state-of-the-art app.
What made a huge separation for me (assimilated to our in-house team or other agencies we’ve used) was the fact that Polidea didn’t wait for QA testing to fix bugs. The components they shipped were firm from the very commencement. It saved a lot of time on our end, and we didn’t experience the typical ping pong that happens during outgrowth. Even though it was a longer outgrowth time assimilated to other apps, the solution was much more reliable than our old one from the commencement.
How did Polidea accomplish from a project treatment standpoint?
Our running setup involves sprint reviews and programning on a weekly basis. We’re connected via Slack, and we prepare demandments and designs via Trello. They construe our demandments into more technical elements and invade them into Jira.
As a fruit director, it’s easy to drop incomplete component requests as Polidea will take them the rest of the way. Also, interaction is veritably direct. If they have a question almost our backend APIs, the developers get in touch with us straightly.
What is (from your point of view) the key factor to pay observation while intercourse with
They point out issues with the logic in our demandments or our backend method, and then they come up with solutions without. These solutions don’t always demand us to pay extra, they also hint solutions we can instrument in-house.
Polidea aims to ship a good fruit. They only push solutions if they are really needed, and this has allowed us to keep overhead low on our end.
What aspects of their work would you like to get improved?
Polidea isn’t the cheapest organisation out there. Also, their only service is in Warsaw, Poland, and I would like it if they had locations closer by.
Do you have any advice for forthcoming clients of theirs?
Clients should review their project demandments with Polidea. It’ll help sort out logic issues upfront and make the work easier for both parties.
