What was the scope of their involvement?
They built native Android and iOS apps from scratch using Kotlin Android and Swift respectively. Both apps had rather complex systems with numerous high-level features, so 7Devs created a UI to accommodate that. The team then incorporated basic e-commerce elements, integrated a membership and loyalty program, and fleshed out the user management authentication system. Since launching the apps, they’ve transitioned into more of a support and maintenance role.
What is the team composition?
The team fluctuates depending on the amount of work we have. We typically work with a project manager, an Android developer, an iOS developer, and a QA specialist. At our highest, we worked with three Android developers, three iOS developers, and two QA specialists along with a designer as needed.
How did you come to work with 7Devs?
We found 7Devs through a referral after reaching out to a number of companies. A colleague a had worked with them before and recommended them to me, so that was an important factor when considering them.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent over $100,000 so far. During development, our average spend was between $5,000–$10,000 per month, but there were times when we would pay more or less. The most we’ve paid was about $16,000–$17,000 per month.
What is the status of this engagement?
We’ve worked together since September 2017, and it's an ongoing engagement. It’s been a lot of hard work, and they’ve pushed through.
