What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
They really played a pivotal role in getting this project off the ground. We owe them a lot. Our London launch was very successful, and Apadmi laid all the foundation for us immaculately.
Their work allowed us to build upon their development with our internal team after that. Apadmi played an important role in linking us with a wide investment network which was critical for growing the financial resource to scale.
How did Apadmi perform from a project management standpoint?
Project management was completely transparent. We could see it through a very granular level. They very often would rejig their calendar to see if something wasn’t on track. On a few occasions, they shoveled things around for us.
We actually moved to Manchester to be closer to their office because they wanted to meet in-person so often. I grew to be very friendly with not only the developers but the project management team as well.
We had daily, open contact so that they were absolutely sure that they were building something we wanted. Throughout development projects, things change. You see problems and improvements you want to make on the fly.
So, we needed to be agile. I’ve worked with agencies who make you reassess the entire working agreement and then things go on a standstill. Apadmi was invested in having as best of a product as needed. They made it happen and went above and beyond for that, which is why I speak so fondly of them.
What did you find most impressive about them?
In terms of the development understanding and moving with the times and staying on top of best practice on both Android and iOS, they were top of their game. The team knew it so well.
They had a really good system in terms of the developers teaming up with the UX teams so that everybody was on the same page. They didn’t team up on projects that they didn’t believe in.
I haven’t encountered Apadmi working on a project that they weren’t talking passionately about and roaring with hunger to do well. They were aware of all the best practices.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No, I can’t fault them on anything. It was a phenomenal experience.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Embrace them as a partner and not as an agency, and treat them as a friend and a family member because they will want to do the same for you. Embrace the cost of it compared to a cheaper agency either nationally or internationally because, with Apadmi, you’re paying for guaranteed quality.
Take into account the expertise they give in all the different areas, and keep an open mind. They understand problems and they help you solve them as best as they can rather than just doing what you ask.
