It has been designed to help people with developmental disabilities receive support. 247 Labs team created a web and mobile-based membership application that was easy to manage and to submit the application. Since its implementation, efficiency increased by 400%, and it has over 100,000 users to date.

Johnson & Johnson Image

Johnson & Johnson

Johnson & Johnson’s Talent Acquisition team needed medical students to know about their internship program. 247 Labs team developed a website that stood out with its own logo and its own branding. All the graphic elements were created from scratch and resulted in an appealing brand new website. Applications increased by 40% and the project was concluded in a tight timeline - just three weeks.

MET PathFinder Image

MET PathFinder

MET Pathfinder is a job search application designed to help Canadian Army Veterans' and their spouses' transition into civilian life once they leave the army. The Job Matching application enables employers to post jobs and sift through matched skills to engage with qualified candidates. 247 Labs' design and development resulted in a significant increase in engagement and usage of the job board.

Motorola

Motorola needed a custom solution to educate a global workforce about the features of their new products. 247 Labs provided a flexible, reusable solution to meet Motorola’s internal training needs. The e-learning platform we created was modular and designed to grow with each new release of a Motorola product while keeping their workforce knowledgeable on every new launch.

FitWear Image

FitWear

FitWear was getting traction in the fitness apparel market. Their customer base was growing, but their original e-commerce site couldn't keep up. 247 Labs rebuilt the site on a solid enterprise-grade e-commerce platform. The results speak for themselves: 5 million unique annual users, instantaneous load times, ease of use, improved sales conversion and enhanced sales reporting.

Elite HRV Image

Elite HRV started as a personal passion project for its founder. With the help of 247 Labs, it has grown into the most widely used and top-rated heart rate variability (HRV) app. The result was a seamless user experience across a central website, iOS and Android apps, and heart-rate monitors. Users can interact with their heart-rate data on any platform and receive personalized recommendations.

Feedback summary: 

247 Labs Inc. was able to deliver the output in a timely manner and is now running and working as expected. The site has been popular due to the pandemic. The team was able to communicate via email and conduct weekly meetings. 

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder and President. I also use the App that was created as a Medical Doctor

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 247 Labs Inc., and what were your goals?

I had an idea to connect patients to their doctor and pharmacy. As a Family Doctor, I could not find anybody offering a service quite like this.

We needed to create a website from scratch to allow patients to connect with their doctors and pharmacies for the purpose of requesting prescription medication renewal. All the programming and user interface would mainly be dose from scratch and there was ecommerce involved.

SOLUTION

How did you select 247 Labs Inc. and what were the deciding factors?

I mainly used Clutch to compare the different IT companies. The potential list was narrowed down to 3 or 4 which all had good Clutch ratings and reviews. Then I spoke to and got a quote from 3 of the companies. 247 Labs seemed to have the best mix of experience for my project for a reasonable price

Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and technologies used.

247 Labs designed the wireframes first. The developers would then be able to follow that logic to build a website with the proper workflows. It was done step by step with Google virtual meetings held weekly.

We used 3 different API's. Stripe was integrated for ecommerce capability. Efax Corporate was integrated to allow for electronic faxing. Adobe Sign was integrated to allow for electronically signed PDF's.

How many people from the vendor's team worked with you, and what were their positions?

5 main people worked with me throughout the project. Initially I dealt with the founder Azwar Khalid followed by the designer of the project and wireframes Aboud Dandachi.

Then the development team head was Nilesh Chokhani. The other main programmers in the development team were Fernando and Alex.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any measurable outcomes of the project or general feedback about the deliverables?

So far the project is working as expected although the COVID-19 pandemic put a twist into the growth trajectory. But opportunities to add an eConsult feature has arisen and we are currently updating the App to allow for this

Describe their project management style, including communication tools and timelines.

The people involved in my project were a pleasure to work with. Most communication was by email and virtual Google meetings. There were also a couple of phone calls with Azwar. Meetings would be set up weekly at a time that was most convenient to me. Timelines were generally kept but we ran a couple of weeks beyond what was expected on the main project.

What did you find most impressive or unique about this company?

Good communication from beginning until the end of the project. Everybody knew their roles and expectations. The team respected each other's time.

Are there any areas for improvement or something they could have done differently?

Sometimes there were different programmers involved in the development which may have slowed things down a bit and led to more bugs. But overall I was very satisfied with the final result.

Feedback summary: 

247 Labs delivered a product that received positive internal feedback and is sure to be a useful tool. Throughout the partnership, the team maintained open and honest communication, and their willingness to provide customized solutions made for a pleasant experience.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the account director at Brooks Creative House, an advertising agency that specializes in the lottery and gaming industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 247 Labs?

During the pandemic lockdown, we decided to rebrand. We’ve been around for almost 27 years. We went from Brooks Marketing Resources to Brooks Creative House, so we wanted a fully new website. We hadn’t had a web presence before.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We gave 247 Labs the concept that we had, and they recommended what they wanted us to use, which was WordPress. 

What is the team composition?

We had touchpoints with three teammates, including Boris (Senior Client Advisor), Zaid (Business Analyst), and a developer. 

How did you come to work with 247 Labs?

We did a search online, working backward from websites that we liked and trying to figure out who made them. That’s how we reached out to 247 Labs.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $5,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our initial contact was in May 2020, and we finished the project in August 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

We haven’t gone live yet, but we’re really excited to get our name out because we’re proud of our website. We want to use it as a tool to support us and as a way for people to get to know us. We believe it’s going to be a success.

How did 247 Labs perform from a project management standpoint?

We had weekly check-ins with the team, and there was a lot of collaboration, which was great. We used Google for meetings and communicated via email. There was a lot of open dialogue, and the communication was efficient. 

Their developer worked with our designer. We never missed any timelines. There was one time where they missed a couple of changes, and they admitted to it right away. I really appreciated their openness and honesty. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

If they didn’t know how to do something, they figured out how to make it work instead of saying they couldn’t do it. I liked their flexibility of being able to take what they had and tweaking it to make it specific to what we wanted.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not that I can think of. The project got held up, which had nothing to do with them, and they kept reminding us of the deadline.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

We came in with an idea of what we wanted, but if you don’t know what you’re looking for, 247 Labs is knowledgeable enough to support you and get you the best product possible. I liked that the team had strong knowledge and a willingness to deliver the best product.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We're a not-for-profit organization in the Canadian medical education system.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 247 Labs Inc.?

Our organization offers an in-person training program for our membership. We wanted to supplement this programming with a mobile application that our members could access day-to-day.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We worked with 247 Labs Inc. to define the project’s requirements. My organization provided the content and branding requirements. They created mockups for approval and developed the app for iOS and Android. 247 Labs Inc. deployed the app on the App Store and Google Play, and we’re currently in the support phase.

What is the team composition?

The people we worked with changed, but I was always in communication with Azwar (CTO, 247 Labs Inc.). We also had a graphic designer for the UI, 2–3 developers, and at least two project managers.

How did you come to work with 247 Labs Inc.?

We sent out RFPs to a group of Canadian companies that develop mobile apps, among other things. We narrowed down the shortlist to include 247 Labs Inc. They were responsive and enthusiastic, and their proposal provided the most detail, demonstrating that they knew how to get this project done. They also explained their process in more plain language than some of the other companies did, so we felt like they had a good, straightforward approach and were keen to work with us. 

How much have you invested with them?

My company has spent about $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our work together began in June 2018, and it’s ongoing. The app deployed in October 2019, and we’re wrapping up the support phase now.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We’re still collecting feedback from users, but based on internal testing we’ve done, the app is intuitive and loads quickly. 247 Labs Inc. kept the app within our brand. It’s pretty much everything we were looking for in terms of a clean and straightforward app that users can access to stay engaged with the material that we provide during in-person workshops. 

How did 247 Labs Inc. perform from a project management standpoint?

Because we’re such a small organization that had never done a project like this, there was a bit of a learning curve for us. The expectations of what 247 Labs Inc. would do versus what we would do were not always clear, which was challenging. Sometimes, this resulted in starting a phase of the project where I thought we were going to get a lot more detailed support on how to do something, when it was really up to us. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their enthusiasm, which came across in a lot of our early calls, set them apart. It was nice to know that they were invested in this project and excited to work on it. They were open to receiving feedback. They also worked with us and accommodated our organizational constraints and limited experience in this area.

Are there any areas they could improve?

As I mentioned before, some of the expectations could’ve been clearer. We also would’ve appreciated having a better idea of what the four phases were: requirements, design, development, and support. We didn’t know what those phases were going to look like until they were happening. There were sometimes deadlines that we didn’t know about until we were already in the middle of a process, so I think that outlining those steps for organizations who have never done this kind of project would be helpful. 

They could’ve also maintained more consistent communication. We went through periods of lots of communication to times when we didn’t hear much of anything. With the expectations not being fully clear, we didn’t know whether we were supposed to be reaching out, or if we were waiting for them.  

Any advice for potential customers?

Have a really good idea of what you want to build, and they’ll be a great team to help you work through that. We started with an idea that wasn’t very clearly defined, and I think that played a factor in having such a steep learning curve.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of A1 Metals. We provide a catalog of automotive parts.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 247 Labs Inc.?

We needed a partner to build the catalog.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

247 Labs Inc. created a digital catalog of our products from scratch. They created search bars to locate products by year. Their team integrated capacities into the platform to enable photo uploads and price listings, which fluctuate by entering data into the catalog. They implemented my ideas, but also supplied their own such as a logo for my company.

What is the team composition?

Mainly, I worked with one person. First, I met the owner who introduced me to a web developer. Anything we needed, he took care of it. He distributed work to the rest of the 247 Labs Inc. team.

How did you come to work with 247 Labs Inc.?

I googled my requirements and checked 247 Labs Inc. out. It looked like their team knew what to do. They didn’t work with big companies so I decided to go with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around $15,000–$20,000 CAD (approximately $11,300–$15,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We collaborated for about two–three months in 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

247 Labs Inc. created a platform that has made my life easier. It's everything I asked them to produce. As a result of the product, processes are more organized. The catalog looks really good and works really well. I’m satisfied.

I’m a strong believer that you get what you pay for. 247 Labs Inc.'s services are worth the cost. You could pay a lower price but would get poorer results. What they charge is worth it. Their service was great. 

How did 247 Labs Inc. perform from a project management standpoint?

They performed really well. Whenever I called—no matter the time—247 Labs Inc. answered the phone. Their team tried to fix any issues right away. If I said something was wrong, they resolved it immediately. Their team didn’t delay.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their customer service was their greatest asset. After we finished our paid for hours, their team continued to adjust the platform to our satisfaction. They didn't say we finished our hours or charge us more. Their team didn’t leave us out to dry. They did everything they said they were going to do and I paid the agreed-upon price.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, 247 Labs Inc. was really professional.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Like I’ve said, you get what you pay for. Even though they’re pricey, 247 Labs Inc.’s worth it. They weren’t a scam, avoiding my calls or e-mails after we finished our hours.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of a security guard company based in Toronto. We have 35 to 40 employees that offer security guard services.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 247 Labs Inc.?

We needed a distinct and unique application for our company.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

247 Labs Inc. developed the app from scratch, using some sketches I provided. The app, for iOS and Android, was a tool for our employees. Every guard has to download the app to check-in at their job sites. The backend system registers their time, location, and employee number before confirming the guard is on site. While developing the backend system, their team made it accessible for us to do programming on our end. They also redesigned our website and performed troubleshooting.

What is the team composition?

We worked with 4–5 people. At one point, we switched project managers.

How did you come to work with 247 Labs Inc.?

I searched for app developers on Google. I called a few, but they seemed to be larger-scale companies that wouldn’t be interested in my scope of work. I ended up talking to 247 Labs Inc. and found out that they had a rep in Toronto. We had a friendly meeting where he discussed the history of the company. They’re a mid-sized company with 20–30 employees, which is what we were looking for since we’re a smaller and cost-sensitive business. I also like having face-to-face interactions, so being in the same city was another plus. Whenever there’s a problem, we could sit down and hash out the issues. I did interview a couple of other groups in Toronto, but they didn’t have the same skillset that we required.

How much have you invested with them?

In total, we’ve invested over $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from August–October 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The app works great and performs how it is supposed to. It trumps the system we were using for the last 37–38 years. During testing, there were additional functionalities I wanted to add and some things I wanted to change. They helped with that even after the project was completed.

The only issue we had wasn’t with the app, but some of the guards are elderly and didn’t have smartphones. That was a problem we had to work around, but we’ve put systems in place to make sure they all received phones and can easily use the app.

How did 247 Labs Inc. perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management style was excellent. I was able to discuss everything on the phone with my point of contact. He would check in, addressing any issues or milestones. He also asked our opinion on work before receiving our approval. They kept me in the loop the entire time.

Even when they switched project managers, there was a smooth transition. They found one to move forward within a couple of days. Sometimes it was hard to explain problems through email and phone, but we had a teleconference video system that allowed us to see each other. During the video calls, we had a live feed of the computer screen. It was helpful for explanations. I could discuss what I wanted with the functionalities and layout. They would take my thoughts and get work back to me in a few days.

What did you find most impressive about them?

247 Labs Inc. delivers quality products within a quick turnaround. Their team had to develop this app from scratch, relying on my limited technical guidance. There were talented programmers that worked on different aspects of the app. They seem like a larger firm because of all of their skillsets. Their turnaround time is insanely quick, like a one-man operation that works 24/7. That must be the reason for their name.

Are there any areas they could improve?

This isn’t a problem, but an aspect of the workforce. 247 Labs Inc. has a lot of programmers from around the world. Sometimes we had conferences late at night or early in the morning because of time differences. There’s not a lot there can be done about that.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Customers need to have a clear idea to save time. They should almost draw what they want on each screen, so the developers know what they’re doing. Their team can mimic exactly what’s drawn on paper. I had a clear indication that their development team could plot on their computers. This is the first app I’ve ever developed, and have little experience with companies. I’m not sure how it goes for brand new ideas, but give 247 Labs Inc. something to work off of. Based on my process, they adapted my renderings quite well, giving me exactly what I was looking for.

I’m the founder & CEO of Elite HRV. We offer digital health and performance tracking tools.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 247 Labs Inc.?

We hired 247 Labs to improve our app and dashboard along with general software development services.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Over the past few years, 247 Labs has provided full-time development staff augmentation. We generally have one ongoing resource, but as many as three full-time developers at any given time. Their team assists with development projects using Angular JS, PHP, JavaScript, and MySQL. They also work with DevOps technologies. For the app and dashboard, they added D3.js, implemented data visualization features, and improved user onboarding.

What is the team composition?

We typically work with three developers and a project manager. Occasionally, we employ a designer.

How did you come to work with 247 Labs Inc.?

Over the years, we worked with many different developers with various projects. We found 247 Labs and struck up a conversation with them. We decided to give them a try, and they’ve ended up working well with us.

We’ve spent around $200,000.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the managing director for a university film festival.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 247 Labs Inc.?

We reached out to 247 Labs to redesign and develop our outdated website before an event. We wanted to move over to a new CMS to make it easier for both our team and customers to use. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

247 Labs redesigned and developed our website on WordPress, integrating our ticketing software. They also made changes to our newsletter and email subscription features, while updating our privacy standards. In addition to development, they also provided testing throughout the process and continue to maintain the site as needed.

What is the team composition? 

We work with a developer, a designer, and a project manager.

How did you come to work with 247 Labs Inc.?

We conducted an RFP process in the Toronto area, reviewed about 12 different proposals, and ultimately felt 247 Labs had the strongest presentation. 

How much have you invested with them?

We've invested between $20,000–$25,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We've been working together since July 2018 and although the site was completed by October, they continue to provide ongoing support and are making additional enhancements as needed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The new site 247 Labs developed has significantly improved our online customer satisfaction by improving navigation and the way tickets are purchased. It's also a lot more reliable and fast, making it easier for internal staff to make edits on the fly. 

How did 247 Labs Inc. perform from a project management standpoint?

They were great about planning and managing our expectations. They're also very accessible over Slack and responsive to any changes we request. We generally have meetings over the phone every week to go over the status of milestones and testing. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their ability to manage the project and meet our demanding deadline was very impressive. They were able to pull off this project in just a couple months, despite some of the unknowns in our scope of work. They've been understanding of our situation, applying an efficient work ethic to get the job done in time. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

There were a few times when they could've been more communicative about what they needed from our end so we weren't causing any delays. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Provide as much detail as possible in the scope of work and make sure they have all the assets they need to deliver the best possible end product.

247 Labs Inc.’s gorgeous design models have established heightened standards for the final product. Their high-quality deliverables have also garnered attention from investors. The team at 247 Labs is producing phenomenal work and providing excellent guidance. 

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder of Voombiz, a startup company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 247 Labs Inc.?

I had a fantastic app concept, but I was not well-versed in mobile-app development. To bring my idea to life, I needed to find an experienced developer who could guide me through the entire process.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

247 Labs Inc. initiated the project with a series of meetings, where we discussed my goals and the amount of work required to achieve them. After listening to my ideas, they created screen prototypes with InVision Studio. They scheduled a few meetings after the drafts were completed to refine the design and omit elements that were redundant and impractical. Using the updated requirements, they built a wireframe model of the app. In preparation for the final stages of development, their role expanded to include pitch consultancy. Their CTO gave me a list of potential investors and accompanied me during the pitch meetings. A few of the investors wanted more information about the app, so 247 Labs Inc. is currently producing a pitch video that explains the product in full detail.

What is the team composition?

I have interacted with their CTO, senior brand and digital product designer, product manager, and sales representative.

How did you come to work with 247 Labs Inc.?

I selected the first company that appeared in my online search for local app developers. 247 Labs Inc. had astonishing reviews, so I had confidence in their ability to deliver excellent work. 

How much have you invested with them?

To date, I have spent more than $8,000 for their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

They have been working on the app since August 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

247 Labs Inc. is still in the process of developing the app, but I am pleased with all of the work that they have delivered thus far. The wireframes are well-designed, and they showcase the app’s eye-catching color scheme. In addition to producing high-quality work, their guidance has helped us raise funds for development. We expect to attract more developers once the pitch demo is finalized.  

How did 247 Labs Inc. perform from a project management standpoint?

From my perspective, 247 Labs Inc. employs highly effective time management strategies. When I go off-course with a flurry of ideas, their team helps me narrow down my thoughts quickly. I can always rely on them to follow through on their promises and abide by the timeline. Frequent communication via phone and Zoom’s video chat service has been the foundation of our solid partnership.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I have a minimal understanding of how the app development process works, so it is comforting to have a partner who looks out for my best interests. They are always willing to break down each step so that I can follow along. While most vendors would be frustrated with my endless questions, they never fail to provide thorough explanations.

Are there any areas they could improve?

247 Labs Inc. takes pride in their work, and they are committed to client satisfaction. Everything has gone according to plan.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Don’t be afraid to ask questions or voice concerns.

Feedback summary: 

With meticulous planning and transparent communication, 247 Labs navigated through the exhaustive brand and web development project with ease. The polished designs featured on the program’s website, and its accompanying apps have received unanimous praise from external users and stakeholders.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

As a senior university recruitment partner, I oversee talent acquisition for a global manufacturing company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 247 Labs Inc.?

In preparation for launching our talent acquisition program, we searched for an experienced web developer who could deliver a sophisticated brand identity, a website, and mobile app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

After developing a complete brand guideline, 247 Labs incorporated the style elements into the public-facing website. In addition to its unique brand identity, the site features detailed information about our talent acquisition program.

Once the website was complete, they focused on building an internal web application for our program. The web app has two user paths; students in the program can use the app to take online courses, and admin users can track the students’ grades and progress. We are also able to upload new information on the platform. For iOS and Android devices, they developed a similar app that allows students to take the courses at their convenience.

What is the team composition?

About 10 people were working on our account, which included the product owner, web designers, solution architects, front- and backend developers, and a few QA engineers.

How did you come to work with 247 Labs Inc.?

They were one of the many companies that responded to our request for proposal. Most of the vendors gave us a sales pitch, but 247 Labs offered a genuine consultation. We felt comfortable working with them because they were knowledgeable and had our best interests at heart.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent more than $200,000 for their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from February 2015–September 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We have a lot of stakeholders within our organization, and they all have unique interests; 247 Labs managed to please all of our decision-makers with their final product. Their sophisticated branding and web designs have also garnered attention from prospective hires. With the project’s success, we have the clearance to improve and expand our talent acquisition program.

How did 247 Labs Inc. perform from a project management standpoint?

Their team was remarkably agile. They used Jira to keep track of their work, and they met with us two times a week to discuss their progress and resolve outstanding issues. We had access to their Slack channel, but we rarely used the platform.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We have worked with several developers in the past, but their work pales in comparison to 247 Labs’ high-quality web products. Their excellent customer service was another highlight. They were responsive to our needs, and they maintained an open line of communication. We were always aware of the project’s status and informed of any complications.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We experienced a few delays, but it was never detrimental to the timeline.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

247 Labs has the potential to take a product concept to new heights if the client is open to new ideas.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the former technology director at Total S.A., an oil and energy company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 247 Labs Inc.?

A government regulation required us to conduct an environmental study to get approval to install oil rigs. We sent airplanes to scope, document, and map wildlife in the surrounding area. Pilots took thousands of photos and scanned images during each flight. Our department of 550 people must process each image and denote any environmental life they find. We hired 247 Labs Inc. to digitize and automate the manual process we’d been using. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Each of the project’s four stages began with a kickoff. During the research and discovery phases, the team’s project managers, designers, and analysts helped us analyze the need and problem solve. Over a long series of workshops and brainstorming sessions, we finalized what to include in the implementation.

For our digital restructuring, the team developed a progressive web application (PWA) with a mobile-friendly aspect. Features include data transformation, mapping, migration, and synchronization. 

During later phases, they built AI components using TensorFlow.
247 Labs Inc. also provided database and user management. Our database contains thousands of images of animals our field inspectors detected. Each photo taken from the airplane has associated details like latitude and longitude. The geospatial interface maps documented wildlife to avoid environmental impact from our oil rig. 

What is the team composition? 

I mostly interacted with the project manager. Two designers and a developer attended some of our meetings. We engaged other companies for digital strategy and solutions architecture.

How did you come to work with 247 Labs Inc.?

We shortlisted vendors through an RFP process. 247 Labs Inc was one of the many referrals we received. Prior experience partnering with an oil company was the main reason we hired them. They also seemed the most flexible about the scope and meeting our needs

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent over $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in June 2016. After several launches, the final release took place in August 2018. We still have 247 Labs Inc. on limited support contract for minor maintenance.
 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Of the many developers I’ve used before, 247 Labs Inc. has the best and most clearly defined process. They produced quality work and stayed flexible our changing requirements. We worked well together as partners, and they even blended well with our external strategy organization. 

Given the number of photos we take in every trip, we were concerned about how the application could perform. 247 Labs Inc.’s deliverable is very reliable, however. Throughout each stage, they helped us build out and expand our product. Our organization is currently using the application internally to handle a massive load of data for a significant project. 

How did 247 Labs Inc. perform from a project management standpoint?

Depending on the stage of the project, we held calls anywhere from daily to every two weeks. For certain deliveries, we even touched base 2–3 times a day. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

247 Labs Inc are great communicators. We really felt like they were there for us. They were committed to doing whatever it took to succeed.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They didn’t always make every deadline they set verbally. We had some misses that came from both our sides.  

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Make sure to review and finalize the scope. We overlooked several parts of the agreement, which caused issues midway through some of the stages.
