Feedback summary: 

The app’s beta version tested well, which helped secure significant funding. Though App Boxer offers project management tools, their flexible approach allows to maintain consistent communication. Far from being just a developer, App Boxer is focus on providing full business development support.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO and founder of Abz Apps. We offer an app that helps solve the expensive childcare costs you see in Australia.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire App Boxer?

I needed someone to help me build the app and find investors.

What were your goals for this project

I wanted to determine if there was another service in the market like mine and if my idea had any legs.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I spoke to a number of possible app developers—three agencies and two friends in the industry—who felt like salespeople. No one had any critiques of my idea, which made me uncomfortable as I knew nothing about app development and needed a lot of help.

The owner and team at App Boxer were the only ones who broke my idea into parts and brainstormed solutions for possible scenarios before I signed a contract. I took the proposal from App Boxer to my friends in the industry, who felt comfortable with the strategy and technology they proposed.

Describe the project in detail.

After I brought the idea, App Boxer took the project from there, defining the scope, building the wireframes, writing the documentation, and doing user research to see if our assumptions were correct. They designed the UX and UI, developed the project in native iOS and Android, and used Python for the backend. They outsourced my branding and legal needs but did help secure funding.

What was the team composition?

I deal directly with their owner, who has a technical background and acts as a project manager. While he’s been with me for the whole project, other people have come and gone depending on what phase we’re in including a UX designer and marketing/strategy guy.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve successfully beta tested the app in a small market with great results. The app faced bugs resulting from normal use, which were fixed quickly. Functionally, the app works great, but we’re aware that it’s confusing for some people.

I’m extremely pleased with the results and progress to this point. App Boxer took my simple idea and drove it to a point where it's become an asset that can either be sold or run as a business. They helped us secure $200,000 in funding, so we’re now focusing on making it is profitable with a certain number of active users.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It isn’t hard to manage communication with their team. We have regular face to face meetings to discuss progress, issues, and next steps, and I didn’t use any tools, though, I was invited to use a project management tool to view the development sprints. I never felt the need to be connected at that level.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their ability to support the full process of a startup is remarkable. They say that making an app is easy but that it’s hard to build a business around it with a great marketing strategy. They nailed the app, as it runs better than I originally expected, but their main contribution, which blew me away, is their capability to do other things like marketing, fundraising, and locating business partners.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can’t pinpoint anything from App Boxer’s perspective since all the issues during development came from me either changing my mind about certain features or being too busy to communicate and provide feedback.

Feedback summary: 

The finished solution is yet to be properly rolled out but is already in use by some customers. App Boxer is quick to address any issues that arise under their one-year warranty plan, while always taking the initiative during the project to ensure an appropriate and solid app was built.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the business development manager at a digital agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire App Boxer?

We hired them to develop a paperless solution which links directly to a healthcare CRM called Cliniko. The solution runs as a native app on both iOS and Android, with an in-depth management portal for the business owners.

What were your goals for this project?

To build a simple system that can be used by the healthcare industry and easily link with their existing infrastructure.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We asked in our business networks for recommendations of companies people had worked with in the past. App Boxer was recommended by several friends, as well as a large number of people in a local startup Facebook group.

Describe the project in detail.

We had only our idea at the beginning. They started by guiding us through a kick-off phase, which involved a brainstorming workshop. They then built the whole scope. The only requirement we had was for the system to be easy to use and integrate with Cliniko. They filled in the gaps with a number of features and took care of everything including the design, development, publishing, branding, marketing strategy, and maintenance.

What was the team composition?

We dealt directly with a project manager and the CEO/founder. The bulk of the work was done by outsourced resources, to whom their project manager delegated. The original project manager left the project in the fourth month, but their CEO stepped into the role to ensure there was no loss of communication.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app was completed in the middle of last year and is now used in four medical practices. Since then, a number of issues were found and App Boxer fixed them at no additional cost as the work was covered under their 12-month warranty. The project has been on delay since completion mainly due to our lack of time to push the system to our clients. We have roughly 20 more practices who are interested, we just need to sign them up.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Once the scope was defined and approved by us, they took on everything. We had weekly meetings in the early stages to keep updated, but that dropped to every two weeks as the work was underway. No tools were used from our end to manage the workflow, only a weekly report provided by App Boxer, as well as the in-person meetings.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their CEO is a young wizard who grew up on technology. He's a self-taught programmer who turned his hobby into a 20-person company. He is at every meeting and takes responsibility for anything that happens with the projects. He's a very honest person who is confident enough to tell you if your ideas aren't good. This was very reassuring as with the other companies we spoke to, it felt like they were trying to sell something we didn't want or need.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The only complaint from us is that we feel some of the problems in the app should have been found during the development cycle, rather than when we sat down for our meetings. However, I do note that they're growing very fast and are struggling with some growing pains.
