Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?
The iPhone app store ratings immediately increased based on the quality work. Feedback from users and estate agents alike had all been very positive. The impact of the iPhone project resulted in PropertyPal almost instantly requesting Apadmi to continue with the development of the Android app. The apps stability continues to provide PropertyPal with a solid foundation and presence in the mobile app space.
How did Apadmi perform from a project management standpoint?
Apadmi delivered on time, on budget, and matched the expected KPIs [key performance indicators] set out by PropertyPal during the RFP creation. Apadmi covered the agreed deliverables, and within the budget, they managed to deliver beyond the scope. Some change requests were absorbed into the project schedule/cost, which is unique for any development agency.
The projects ran very smoothly. Apadmi never missed any delivery dates throughout and exceeded quality expectations. The subsequent Android project required very little interaction as Apadmi was able to shorten delivery dates and again deliver beyond expectations.
What did you find most impressive about Apadmi?
They seem to be on the same level as we are. They’re able to work hard and laugh at the same time. They’ve very pleasurable to work with. They never seem to come back with any reasons why they couldn’t deliver. They were able to take on any challenges we gave them. As we progressed through the Android development, we could joke that our team meetings had become slightly boring as we had no issues to resolve, which is unusual for most projects. We had a good relationship and there was a good execution of the two apps, which were developed to a high standard. They were able to deliver the Android app ahead of schedule, so we were pleased with that.
Apadmi's team was a pleasure to work with; everyone from sales, project management, development, and testing were great. Although the design team was not officially engaged in the project, they helped review user flows and assisted in the transformation of the iPhone design to Android. We could not have asked for more from a dedicated delivery partner.
As the apps continue to require maintenance, Apadmi never fails to impress and has never had any issue with providing a great service.
Are there any areas Apadmi could improve?
No. Everyone is happy with how the project finished.
