Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?
We have used a couple of testers for assessing the builds we’ve received so far. Seductive Mobile has delivered apps which crashed in the beginning, which might be because of differing devices, but, as soon as we give them feedback, they are quick to resolve problems.
How did Seductive Mobile perform from a project management standpoint?
The performance of our first project manager was not very good. He was exchanged, and, since the new manager was brought onboard, everything has been very smooth. We have used the Atlassian suite, including JIRA and Confluence. Seductive Mobile was always available and provided clear communication. The initial estimates differed quite a lot from the realistic efforts made during the project. The initial quote was for between $10,000 and $15,000 for the whole application, but we’ve already spent that budget, working on just the initial version of the app. Sometimes, this is how software development is.
The responsiveness of Seductive Mobile’s project manager and team was on par with our expectations. They provided detailed communication. We didn’t have any direct interactions with their developers, but we have communicated with the management team from Seductive Mobile. This was fine for us, since their principal has a deep understanding of software development.
What did you find most impressive about Seductive Mobile?
They have performed quite well in building a complex product. Seductive Mobile studied the iOS build, understood the functionalities of the app, and started on the Android version quickly.
Are there any areas Seductive Mobile could improve?
Not really. Their tools and project manager are very professional. I’ve had a good feeling up to now, and I’m looking forward to the first finalized version of the app. When we’ve started testing it with a bigger user group, we might find some issues, but we’ve been happy to work with Seductive Mobile so far.
