App Development for e-Learning Company
Please find below a summary covering project details and feedback. The essential facts are kept as they are, confidential information is amended.
Please describe your organization.
Our organisation is Starfall Education. We are dedicated to inspire a love of learning in young children. We focus on kids from 18 months to grade two. We teach mathematics, science, social studies, and reading through an online platform.
What are your role and responsibilities?
I',m the president of the organisation.
What was your goal for working with FlexisUS?
We were looking to transfer our content onto a mobile platform. The biggest challenge was that we had 10 years worth of content on Adobe Flash, which has been disallowed on mobile devices. We needed a developer that could take our content and make it mobile-friendly.
Please describe the scope of their work.
The content was established, so FlexisUS took what was working on our website and adapted it and modernized it to work in the different platforms, including an iOS app and an Android app. They used Adobe Air to do most of the work, and did it in conjunction with our in house team. They were given portions of the website and transitioned it both with their insights and with the way that we needed it to be done. FlexisUS also helped transition another portion of our content to HTML5.
What was your process for selecting FlexisUS?
FlexisUS was recommended to us by one of our clients. We didn',t look any place else. They picked up the ball and it rolled.
Can you give a sense of the size of the initiative?
The size of the project is close to $1 million.
When was the work completed?
It',s completed at the end of 2014.
Do you have any statistics or metrics on the project?
FlexisUS helped us create a series of standalone apps that we needed to do fast and in advance of the larger project. Our ",Learn to Read", app was No. 1 in children and education for six months. The larger project is getting 60,000 downloads a day.
Are you satisfied with their performance?
We are very pleased with FlexisUS',s work.
What differentiates FlexisUS from other partners?
It',s so difficult to get someone who will work with you the way you want to work. Some firms want to code the way they want to. You wind up with a project you can',t maintain yourself. FlexisUS was very respectful of our practices.
What advice would you give to future clients of theirs?
You need to interacte. If you',re concerned on the code level, you need to have somebody who can do code review and make sure those procedures are happening the way you want them to. If you',re not concerned about that, you can readily hand that over to them.
