Feedback summary: 

The app helped generate awareness of a broader array of products and drew positive feedback from customers. The chat functionality proved particularly popular. Adonis Software is efficient and transparent, and they can accommodate any requests.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m an account manager for a digital agency. I’m responsible for finding the right partners to develop mobile assets for our clients.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Adonis Software?

We needed mobile app development to connect users’ online activities with their offline activities.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to quickly get downloads and keep users active. The goal was to increase awareness of our client’s products.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We previously worked on a different type of project and had a good experience with their team, so they were considered in the pitch for this project. We chose them based on those past experiences and the work they delivered, along with their portfolio on mobile apps.

Describe the project in detail.

After the initial pitch process, we had two updates on final specifications and functionalities for the app based on our initial plans and client's needs. Adonis Software helped improve the design and UI and better structure the flow for the app. They developed an app with chat capabilities, video upload, and a real-time connection with offline activities.

What was the team composition?

We had a project manager who was our main point of contact during the planning, development, testing and release stages of the project. We had meetings and contact with the developers on certain key functionalities that needed to be aligned between the agency and the client.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our internal client gathered data and feedback from their customers and found that the app helped them raise awareness of their product. The overall usage of the app met expectations, but the chat functionality beat those expectations. Adonis Software quickly addressed any flaws in the initial version.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We had constant updates from the project manager, and we held frequent calls and meetings on the important milestones that we designated in the planning process. We mainly communicated by email, though they offered to use a different communication platform should we desire.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They’re quick on their feet and flexible about finding solutions to the most unusual of requests. They dedicate time and resources to research and find ways of staying within the proposed deadline, while also accommodating feedback and requests for changes from the client side.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There a few instances when communication was a bit too technical and required additional calls for us to better understand the meaning.

Feedback summary: 

Over the course of the campaign, the app rose to become the third most popular app in the App Store, earning about 190 participating NGOs and 21,000 total users. Adonis Software brought a can-do attitude to the project. They remained flexible and pivoted quickly to overcome all challenges.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I was the regional account manager in MRM//McCann. In my role, I was responsible for the all local projects for our third-party client, a global beverage company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Adonis Software?

We hired Adonis Software to help us develop a volunteer app that was essential to our core creative idea for our client. 

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to release an app that would allow users to scan their immediate area for volunteer opportunities. The app would be a platform for NGOs and volunteers while also serving as a call to action to do good deeds.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We organized a third-party pitch, asking well-known developers on the market to come back to us with costs and solutions for our idea. Adonis Software had the best costs and timing out of all of them.

Describe the project in detail.

Our agency did the design, and Adonis came in to support the mobile app development. We worked as a team, managed to deliver the project in time, and achieved good results.

What was the team composition?

From Adonis Software, we had the developers and the account manager to handle all of the needed technical details. We met frequently to align and set next steps.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app became the third most popular app in Bucharest on the App Store and encouraged more people to volunteer. It generated about 21,000 volunteers and enrolled around 190 NGOs over the course of our campaign.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Adonis Software was very passionate about what they did and knew how to adapt to problems throughout the process. It was hectic to compile so much information into one platform, and this was a learning process for both sides. But, in the end, we managed to solve all obstacles and brought a great project to life.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They were eager to learn and knew how to adjust to new information and updates throughout the project.

Are there any areas for improvement?

At that time, their team was smaller, and they were just learning to collaborate with big brands. They needed to improve in terms of their processes and scheduling to meet higher demands. But a lot of time has passed since then, so they might have gained more experience on this front.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Adonis Software communicated well, holding in-person meetings as often as possible. They collaborated closely with the internal team, helping them understand what services they could offer. They proactively took over design when no other firm was able to accomplish the job.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the head of marketing for a winery.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Adonis Software?

We wanted to be able to track which restaurants our wines were in, so we needed a partner to develop an app that could accomplish that.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Adonis Software built an iOS and Android app, doing both the design and development. Our team was incredibly inexperienced with app dev, so they answered our questions and helped direct the project. Although the original scope of work didn’t include design, when we couldn’t find a partner to do it, they offered to provide the service.

Adonis Software worked with our database of clients, restaurants, and wines to determine which wines were at which locations. Users can just click on a wine and see where it’s being offered. Adonis Software also developed a feature that allows a user to click on a wine at a certain restaurant and see what food they offer that pairs well with it.

What is the team composition?

We worked with the CEO, an account manager, and some programmers.

How did you come to work with Adonis Software?

They reached out to us. When we decided we wanted to build this app, I remembered them. We went to a few other companies, but Adonis Software was the most prompt, so we hired them.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted for four months, from summer to winter 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

This is the first app like it in our industry. It’s hard to make wineries modern, but the app has put us far ahead of our competitors.

How did Adonis Software perform from a project management standpoint?

They were punctual and always tried to schedule meetings face to face to optimize communication. We also communicated via phone and email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They always provided solutions to our problems, even if it wasn’t their responsibility. For example, they took over design when we couldn’t find a partner to help us.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I can't think of anything.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Have specific requirements for what you want your app to accomplish, and they’ll achieve it.

Feedback summary: 

The app launched on schedule, worked perfectly, and received many positive users reviews. Adonis Software managed the workflow smoothly through frequent progress updates and feedback sessions. They delivered on time, even after adding several features at the last minute. 

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the co-founder and web developer of a free iOS app that quickly provides information about the nearest hospitals, health clinics, and pharmacies. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Adonis Software?

We contracted Adonis Software to design and develop the iOS application, which has a frontend interface that accesses data from our API.

What were your goals for this project?

Because the app is focused on emergencies, we wanted it to be as simple and usable as possible, with a clean design that displays results quickly.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found Adonis Software on Freelancer.com. After comparing other application developers, we decided that they were the best candidate.

Describe the project in detail.

They were quick to respond, give us an estimate for the timeframe, and determine payment milestones. Once we completed the necessary legal paperwork, they quickly created a mockup of the app and a usable prototype through TestFlight. At that point, we submitted feedback about certain aspects and features.

In addition to storing information, the app also allows users to select their health insurance and automatically add the nurse hotline number. Furthermore, it stores contact information for doctors and other medical professionals separately from the phone's contact list.

What was the team composition?

They assigned a project manager right away as our point of contact. Although designers and programmers worked on the project, it was valuable to have a project manager who received our input and identified our goals.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We released the app quickly, and it received a lot of positive feedback and ratings. Our local airport even sponsored the app during the holiday season to promote safe travel.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Adonis Software was always quick to respond to our feedback and keep the project on track. We communicated through email but also had Skype meetings as necessary.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I'm impressed that they worked so quickly, yet created a product that is so responsive and reliable. They were receptive and flexible about adding a few last-minute features.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We made the right choice by using Adonis Software. Locating any areas for improvement is difficult. The entire process went so smoothly and quickly that I couldn't have hoped for anything better.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CTO of iRewind AG. We do video for various sports events like marathons and cycling competitions. We record footage and use metadata from the timing system to create personalized videos for every runner or participant. Most of our customers are large companies that organize the events.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Adonis Software?

At that time, we thought that a mobile application would help us to achieve more visibility by offering a B2C product to event participants.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Adonis Software developed native apps for iOS and Android using our designs. They developed the specs for the apps. They used an API to connect to our data on the backend. The apps used push notifications to engage the customer.

What is the team composition?

I worked with three people on their team.

How did you come to work with Adonis Software?

I knew the owner and I trusted them. We started with a smaller project. They did a good job on that and our engagement grew from there.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around $15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The engagement is complete.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We measured the applications, but our business objectives have changed. Our customers have their own apps, so we’re no longer using the apps that Adonis Software developed for us. We weren’t able to achieve our business goal, but that has nothing to do with them.

How did Adonis Software perform from a project management standpoint?

The project was completed quickly and managed well. There wasn’t much management involved in these projects from their side. The fact that I have a technical background was helpful. I could quickly connect to the developer directly and explain to him exactly what I wanted and how to achieve it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were a fair provider of mobile development. We got what we expected. They have good developers that understand what you require.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I'm not sure it's for us to comment on that.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO of AstroWOW ApS. We offer online solutions to astrological questions via software, apps, and astrology reports.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Adonis Software?

We hired Adonis to develop a complex astrology app that calculated planetary positions and displayed a touch-sensitive horoscope in 10 languages. 

What were your goals for this project? 

The goal was to translate an astrology software that was developed for Windows into an iOS app.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I had previous success with a Romanian company, and they suggested using Adonis for app development. 

Describe the project in detail. 

Adonis Software developed an iOS astrology app based on existing software. The project was divided into four milestones, which involved a deep understanding of planetary movement and data display. The biggest challenge was to display a horoscope on a small touch-sensitive screen so that we could show multilingual interpretations.

What was the team composition?

The initial part of the project was completed by two resources, though there were subsequent team changes as the project developed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Adonis Software did the work extremely well and very rapidly considering the complexity of the project. We ran into some problems with third-party software for the atlas and coordinate functions, which delayed the launch, but this wasn’t their fault.

Currently, the app has earned a few thousand downloads. However, it hasn’t been an unqualified success. The app would benefit from a redesign and a more customer-friendly approach, which might have been a mistake on our side. If we end up changing the UI, we’ll still use Adonis Software. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs? 

The communication was excellent, and the feedback was perfect. I was surprised at how effective the programmers were compared with previous companies we’ve used. They could solve problems mostly by themselves.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Adonis Software delivered a beautiful app. They solved a complex functionality with extraordinary speed, and the design and presentation were exactly to our specifications.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The original programmer was brilliant; he really had a stroke of genius in mastering UI design. However, the subsequent programmer could focus on improving their design capabilities.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Adonis Software?

We needed help to develop a mobile application.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’re using Java to work on an Android app. They did both the UX design and development. The app allows building residents to see how much electricity and water are consumed, and they can enter their water consumption. They can see their monthly billings and can pay them with a credit card. They can also communicate with the property’s administration team with a ticketing system. The app takes the data and sends it to our systems. The main data is on our servers. 

What is the team composition?

I work with a designer and a Java developer. The owner is also involved in communication.

How did you come to work with Adonis Software?

I found them through a Google search. I liked that they weren’t too small or too big. I saw their history of 7–10 years and felt that was sufficient experience, and their pricing seemed reasonable. It was a plus that they have an office close to mine. I met with them and chose to work with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $25,000–$50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2019, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

It’s nice having an external company do the work for us so we didn’t have to take the time to learn new technologies. The product will bring in a lot of money when it’s finished. We intend to charge a monthly fee for access on the system. The return on investment should be in one year. We expect the number of users to grow. It’s been great.

How did Adonis Software perform from a project management standpoint?

No, I can't name anything specific.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

User and provider feedback have been overwhelmingly positive. Adonis Software corrected bugs quickly and responded equally as promptly to other concerns. Their consistent communication and ability to produce high-quality deliverables made them a valuable partner.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO of Dot Design, a design & web development agency that offers software, design, and marketing services.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Adonis Software?

One of our major real estate clients wanted a mobile app for their newly built high-end residential complex. As we don't offer mobile development, we needed to subcontract this job to a vendor whose expertise is in building iOS and Android apps.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to develop this project within a strict deadline. Since it was for a high-end residential with demanding users, the app had to be really polished.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We did our homework and researched online thoroughly. We started interviewing a few select candidates. We chose Adonis Software as we felt the most confident after discussing the project with them.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Adonis Software started by leading business analysis, followed by the planning the project in terms of milestones. We were to lead the design, and they were to implement it, so we needed to make sure we were on the same page regarding the solution. After two weeks they had full specifications and wireframes. We then finalized the design and provided it to them. They implemented the design on both iOS and Android within the agreed timeline, even though we had some custom elements built in. We had a few rounds of feedback, and they fixed any bugs. After polishing the app, they also helped with the launch on the App Store and Google Play.

What was the team composition?

In the beginning, I worked with a business analyst. My main point of contact during implementation was a project manager. I also worked with three developers (Android, iOS, and a web developer for the backend) as well as a testing specialist.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

My client received very good reviews from the residents of the complex. The feedback was that the app is a service that makes their life easier, which they appreciate. Residents are active users since it first launched one year ago. Since then, we’ve only had to make small changes to the app.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

I mostly kept in touch with the business analyst at first, and then switched to the project manager. I liked having one point of contact as I didn't have to explain the same thing multiple times. Communication went smoothly. We mostly chatted via Skype and email, but sometimes we had calls and live meetings to discuss milestone deliveries. The project manager was very responsive.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was highly impressed with their expertise regarding UX. We were comfortable with leading the design aspect, but their expertise in mobile UX was extremely helpful. Together we built a high-quality product. I also highly value their communication skills and drive.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Nothing comes to mind at the moment.

Feedback summary: 

So far, the app has received over 10,000 downloads and is highly rated on both the App Store and the Google Play Store. The team from Adonis Software has provided expert direction throughout all phases of the project, and their product has prompted growth within the business.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CEO of Foodify, an online food order and delivery company headquartered in Romania. I oversee the development of the company and daily operations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Adonis Software?

We hired Adonis Software to build a mobile application for iOS and Android devices, and provide continuous updates and maintenance.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to create an intuitive platform that would meet the needs of our customers. We also needed a team that could work on the product after launch to implement changes in response to user feedback.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

My team and I searched for mobile development companies online, and decided to meet with Adonis Software after viewing their portfolio. This initial meeting was very productive, and when we considered the quality of their work and the experience of their team, it became clear that we should choose them to build our app.

Describe the project in detail.

Once we established the partnership with Adonis Software, we held several phone calls and meetings to discuss our requirements for the project. They presented us with several options we could take to reach our objectives. We gave feedback, and their team sent us wireframes and guidelines that outlined the route they would take to achieve our goals. They’ve built many useful features into the app, and have developed a backend for both the iOS and Android versions. They continue to provide maintenance and updates as needed.

What was the team composition?

We were assigned a project manager who organizes the tasks of the developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since we launched on the market, we've reached over 10,000 total downloads. We’ve also processed over 50,000 orders through the app. We have a 4.8 rating in the App Store and a 4.5 rating in the Google Play Store.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We’ve communicated frequently with our project manager, and have been able to reach out to other people at Adonis Software via phone call, Skype or Slack. Their team is always quick to respond, which has made workflow management easy and straightforward.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The most impressive aspect of Adonis Software is their commitment to producing high-quality deliverables, followed by their ability to walk us through their development process. Some of this guidance has come directly from the CEO of the company, which I very much appreciate.

I've also been pleased with the speed and frequency of communication with their team, and the fact that their prices have been very fair. Adonis Software has created an app with great UX that has helped us grow our business. I would highly recommend their team to friends and colleagues, and they will be my first option for future projects.

Are there any areas for improvement?

At times, I’ve wished the timeframe could've been shorter for certain tasks. However, quality comes first, and I would rather have a well-designed product than a quickly made one that has flaws. Overall, I am very satisfied.
