Trailer Plus

Trailers Plus is one of the leading trailer manufacturers in North America. The 247 Labs team worked to build an online website that sets Trailer Plus as a digital leader that dominates the trailer ordering and e-commerce world with a superb UI/UX design. Our team came together on design, development & testing to build the number one website in its market and increase client sales even more.

My Direct Plan

MyDirectPlan is a solution for all of Ontario’s community support agencies. 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

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

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

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

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.

Poliigon

Poliigon is the leading source of photo-realistic textures for digital artists. Poliigon’s extensive library of files was a challenge to manage. Our team re-architectured the website, redesigned the front-end user experience, and implemented a backend admin system. Following the development work, Poliigon increased its annual membership by 100% and we are glad to have them as an ongoing partner.

They provided consulting services, helping me identify technical requirements and the feasibility of developing an app. Then, they developed wireframes and the basic prototype. I knew what I wanted, so I gave them a lot of direction in terms of functionality.

What is the team composition?

I worked with a project manager and two other members of their team.

How did you come to work with them?

I knew I wanted to work with a Canadian team, so I was looking at different review websites, including Clutch. I liked 247 Labs' company profile and the reviews they had, so I gave them a call.

I spent less than $5,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

They gave me much more than than I had hoped for.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I had a great experience.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Feedback summary: 

A boost in sales and stronger partnerships have resulted from the effectiveness and convenience the app brings. Weekly demos, prompt communication, and complete transparency are highlights of the collaboration, though they could improve on the testing front.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the assistant manager of a dental technology company that creates innovative products related to dental hygiene and other dental services. I’m in charge of managing projects.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 247 Labs Inc.?

I hired them to create a dental mobile app. They were in charge of all my web and mobile design and development needs.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted to make it easier to serve my customers by giving them access to the dental data they need through their phone.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were strongly recommended by another company that had worked with them before.

Describe the project in detail.

The project was to build a mobile app that allows dentists to connect to a system and see all the data they collect by using our Smart Reader device. They also created a web portal that shows the same data that can be seen from the app.

What was the team composition?

I worked with an account manager, a product manager, a designer, two developers, and a tester.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

I’ve made more sales and have created strong strategic partnerships with enterprise organizations thanks to 247 Labs’ help. They delivered the mobile app and web portal on time and implemented changes within hours.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their project manager was organized and led a transparent collaboration, following a clear process and managing risks well. I knew their team had daily calls, but I didn’t want to participate in those. We only did weekly demos, and whenever I needed to reach them, they’d respond promptly by phone or email.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They’re a great team. I finally found a software development company that actually cares about understanding my business and goals and is willing to adapt to our requirements and budget constraints while giving us honest advice.

Are there any areas for improvement?

My customers caught some minor bugs, which could’ve been avoided if they had more people testing the platform across all kinds of devices.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Toronto North Local Immigration Partnership is a partnership between organizations that serve newcomers. These organizations collaboratively develop and implement settlement and integration strategy that creates more welcoming communities and enhances newcomers' experiences. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 247 Labs Inc.?

Through consultations with our member agencies, we identified a need for an information resource to improve the accessibility of community services. It needed to be modern, easy to use, and available to everyone.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to develop a mobile app and website that would help immigrants and refugees in Toronto find programs and services to help them settle successfully. The app would be free, user-friendly, and accessible to people of different ages and immigration statuses.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We researched a few companies and met with three of them. We selected 24/7 because of their positive attitude, their efficiency and professionalism, and their understanding of our sector and newcomer needs. 

Describe the project in detail.

Many immigrants and refugees use the Internet and various applications to access information. Our preliminary research revealed no app that covered Toronto-based immigrant services, such as settlement, employment, and healthcare.

The existing databases have certain limitations. Limited resources in the social service sector mean that information is not kept up-to-date, and the categories used to sort data are not necessarily intuitive for newcomers. Most countries of newcomers’ origin do not have settlement services, so they don't search for them upon arrival. Other online search options, such as Google maps, don't have all the features that we hoped to include in our app.

We wanted to ensure accessibility for vulnerable groups of newcomers, such as youth, seniors, and people with limited literacy and English or French language skills. Since Toronto welcomes over 300,000 newcomers on an annual basis, the app will be used by at least 50,000 people a year.

What was the team composition?

They provided a project manager, designer, architect, and developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The mobile application is available for free to all newcomers to Toronto. The development has just been completed, so it's too early to report its impact.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It was very effective, and the team was efficient and pleasant. The project manager responded within hours, gave clear instructions, and always tried to accommodate our requests.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was most impressed by their attitude and sincere desire to help newcomers to Toronto. They don't have any direct business interest in the app, since it's free, doesn't have ads, and is funded by the government. However, they are still helping us promote the app and develop marketing materials to support our project. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

Due to our limited budget, we couldn't implement several features that we wanted. However, we hope to do so in the future.

Our company is web and mobile development company, focusing mostly on Angular SPA applications. We outsource other types of projects. I'm CTO within this company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 247 Labs Inc.?

We needed them to build an automated way to collect and track all calls of web application visitors.

This application needed to work with WebHooks and be able to support thousands of calls in a day, tracking this information and showing it to other visitors of the current application.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

The customer requested the use of Laravel and SSE, so we decided to hire a company that has experience with that. 247 Labs was the best candidate with the necessary skills.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

The web application uses CallRail API and collects all calls and tracking information from it. It synchronizes with each call, showing a popup notification on the app which is to alert other visitors about the recent call. The application uses SSE and WebHooks to send events to the tracking site.

Everything was perfect.
