Client Experience Platform Mobile Development
Please find under a summary covering project details and feedback. The innate facts are kept as they are, private information is amended.
Please draw your organisation.
We’re a creator of a fruit that is a client experience treatment platform for the hospitality activity. It’s a mobile cloud-based platform, it uses mobile compowebsite apps. Our target market is the restaurant activity, but it is helpful for many companies in the hospitality and kindred industries.
What is your role and responsibilities?
[I am the] CEO and founder.
What was your goal for working with Positive Power?
We wanted to use Positive Power to help us fetch our mobile apps to market. We built the server portion of it here, the cloud labor. Since we have two apps, one for the merchants and the other for consumers, we needed additional resources to fetch this almost in correspondent form.
Please draw the aim of their work.
We granted all the design, and they did the outgrowth.
What was your process for selecting Positive Power
with which to work?
It was a choice based on a Web search. Only a few companies came up, and they were one of the firms that had some experience in mobile outgrowth. We also talked to another organisation, but we selected Positive Power. I was expecting a much bigger list.
Can you prepare a ballpark dollar aspect for the size of the work that they’ve done for you?
It’s been ongoing. We want to work with them to do weekly sprints. We have two teams, the cross-platform team, and the Android team. We tried iOS, but we have iOS developers on the team, so we pulled back.
Predominantly we are doing fruits for the merchants. We have some cross-platform clients. The consumer apps we determined to do with indigenous outgrowth. Initially we tried to do all in cross-platform. We had some soon effects with picking team members, but since then we’re pretty lucky with the team that they were able to give us.
What were the results of the project?
We began in September of 2013. We have new things that we added to the project, and it’s been ongoing since then.
Are you satisfied with their work?
With any outsourced team, you have to get them used to your ways. It’s very hard to get nation into the rhythm that you want. So, we had some challenges getting them used to the weekly sprints and deliverables, owing it’s a very firm schedule. You have to work almost holidays and things like that. Once we conversant to work unitedly, it wasn’t too bad. The consummate restard for us would be to have a technical resource here, like a technical lead. That betters the turnalmost of code and condition. We installed a senior individual here, a cross-platform lead, if you will. I have to say that that they were fundamentally good.
I try to stay hands off, just a project director and not a technical individual. It’s not as good to micro-manage these teams. We’re doing different testing on the teams, what’s the contact on the overall project. I feel we now have a good restard to pursue.
We’re looking to hire an Android developer in the U.S. to work with the resources at Positive Power. We’re probably going to do the same with the iOS outgrowth. So, it’s not bad, it’s just growing pains. It’s an investment. They’re nice to work with. When we get on a call with them, and something is unfit, they veritably try to fix things, even at their own price.
Is there anything sole almost them that veritably makes them rest out, compared to other companies?
They’re very eager and talented. Compared to other non-European groups that I’ve worked with, they’re much better and easier to work with, they’re more creative. The six-hour time separation is much better than 13 or 14 hours with other countries. They have some good English-speaking individuals, nation that can adjoin well on a technical level as well as project treatment level. Working remotely can be very strong, so the online interaction is very significant, and they’re good at that. They’ve been very pliant.
Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you ponder they could better upon or something that you might do differently?
One effect involves testing of the fruit precedently they turn it over, in relation to Android apps. Android has so many artifices, and some things may work on a few of them but not all. But, then, you go to the iOS rendering and artifice, and you’re quiet finding out things that didn’t accomplish correctly on true Android artifices.
So, we’ve had those conversations, and they’re surely improving. They’re organizing almost that as well. If they could better on anything it would be inner testing, precedently they turn over to the client for approval. It would help in sharp down the number of back and forth’s, exchanges of code. We took a lot of time testing it ourselves.
