EXPERTISE

The expertise and services we provide run across all platforms. Even though we are a leading mobile development company, we also work with the latest web and server technologies. Almost every mobile app needs backend technologies or an accompanied website. Because we want to assure the best quality experience as possible, we DO NOT outsource, we produce everything in-house and we offer various services:

- Discovery phase of a project
- UI/UX from wireframes through design to user testing
- Native mobile app development using the latest technologies such as Kotlin/Swift and FRP
- Frontend development with React
- Backend decelopment in Node.js/Java/PHP
- Setting up CI and automated tests
- QA with test cases and user paths
- Data analytics

Bundestag Image

Bundestag

Ackee won the Europe-wide tender of the Bundestag to design and develop a completely new native app for the German House of Representatives. The delivered solution serves on the one hand as a reliable source of information for the general public and on the other hand enables the members of the Bundestag to communicate effectively with the citizens.

Zonky

Zonky is the biggest peer-to-peer lending provider in Czech Republic. We won the pitch to design and develop app for investors and for borrowers. We focused on user friendly interface and implemented features such as login with face ID. In development we used newest Apple and Google technology such as MVVM architecture, Room and Realm databases.  

Audi: Rideguide Image

Audi: Rideguide

Rideguide project was started as an innovation project in Audi Denkwerkstatt incubator - the goal was to test new opportunities for Audi outside the mobility area.

Our goal was to bring a MVP version of the app as soon as possible to the end users. The origin architecture was even simplified by Ackee to fulfill this goal (for example we have replaced a web CMS with a Google spreadsheet). 

The app itself is an interactive tour guide with gamification principles to motivate users to create their own tours

Feedback summary: 

With the app, the company now has two sales channels to reach their customers, making them more competitive in the market. Ackee followed an Agile approach, remaining nimble during the development process. They're professional, skilled, and timely.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CTO at Košík.cz and CIO of MallGroup in Czech republic. Košík.cz has more than 400 employees. We are number two company in online retail with foods, drinks, drugstore and many others.

We have more than 16 000 articles that you know from your grocery store. I am responsible for the agile development of the whole B2B and B2C platform that support business needs.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Ackee?

We hired Ackee as a strong partner for the developing native mobile application for Android and iOS. We do not have any in-house mobile developers so because of the Ackee we are able to have a competitive mobile app and we still have time to focus on our core platform solution.

What were your goals for this project?

We know that in the modern world we must have a mobile app for our business to be successful. We started with web site application and goal of this project was to develop mobile app and provide our customers an easier way to order our goods.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We have selected Ackee based on their reputation on the czech market. We had a presentation from top three companies from Czech republic about concept of the app and Ackee won that tender based on their presentation/references and many others, it was a perfect fit.

Describe the project in detail.

At the beginning we had a series of meetings about face of the company, how feeling should user have from this app. We also filled Ackees design brief. We had limited time to provide first MVP version so it was more waterfall than agile access. Ackee made clickable prototype and then UI design.

During the development of app Ackee was also responsible for consultations of mobile first API design. During the last month of the development we merge testing teams on both sides to make sure everything is ready and we have a product in good quality for our customers.

What was the team composition?

Košík.cz provided API developers, testers and marketing team for the consultations. Ackee provided 1 PM, 1 UX, 1UI, 2 Android, 2 iOS developers and 1 QA. We worked as a team with recurring meetings every week.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have another two channels how to reach our customers. We don’t need to pay so much attention to our mobile website solution. We saw that our customers are using different platforms (website/mobile app) during different times of the day. Day also combine both options for single order. We support all major platform as our competitors do.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We used JIRA for development and MS teams for instant messaging. Ackee assigned for the project highly skilled project manager with a good technical knowledge so we were able to communicate with him almost all the details of the project. All other team members was also professionals, project went really well!

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I appreciate their passion for their work and commitment to delivering the best product possible in a limited timeframe.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I don’t think so, nothing special to be pointed out in this sense. We cooperate on the product also after the MVP phase. We are working in the rapid release cycles and iterative improvements of the app. We are releasing at least one version per month.
