OPPORTUNITY

We needed a portal that allowed clients to access our available sites and internally helped us manage our customers and data. Our main goal was to improve our data and client management strategies with a unique product.

SOLUTION

AppDrawn first created the aesthetic design and optimal UX/UI elements, then built the mobile platform. 

RESULTS

& FEEDBACK

AppDrawn delivered in every aspect of the project. Our first clients praised the product for its accessibility, performance, and design. We hit the quote and even had some money to spare on upgrades and optimizations. It was a fantastic experience and I look forward to collaborating on our next project.

OPPORTUNITY

We needed resources to create an online management system that allowed schools to store and organize student data, financial accounts, and billing.

SOLUTION

After an initial meeting to discuss the project, we had no doubt that they could deliver our vision within a reasonable price and time frame. They designed a user-friendly system to help us store and

manage customer data.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

While we’re still working on the project, they’ve completed the billing process, which is significantly faster than before. They have good communication and can clearly explain the process to us. They delivered exactly what we asked for.

The launch of the new system has streamlined business processes and generated helpful reports for management. AppDrawn Software Development follows a collaborative development process and they're committed to understanding specific business needs.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Renteq Highways provide temporary traffic management support to anyone working on the road network. My name is Sean Pannell and I am the Managing Director of the Company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire AppDrawn Software Development?

To create a brand new electronic booking system for customer jobs, allowing the allocation of resources including staff to each specific job. The booking system is also undergoing further development to "talk" to our remote works on site.

What were your goals for this project?

To create a software package which encompasses all our current paperwork systems and to facilitate the introduction of paperless systems both in the office and in the field. In addition, the development is ongoing as this system becomes more ingrained within our existing systems.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Through our IT Consultant who has worked alongside AppDrawn Software Development for many years. They also provided a presentation of their business to us showing their other customers and references.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

To create a booking system integrating our operational, sales and invoicing roles into one very efficient process. A major key advancement of AppDrawn Software Development's work is that we are able for the first time to operate our booking system, remotely away from the business hub.

What was the team composition?

A dedicated account manager who feeds back to their own software developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The new system has streamlined the current processes within my business and at the same time, the new system is able to provide a range of reports which we use when managing our business. The new booking system is a very powerful tool and we are looking forward to working with AppDrawn Software Development to further develop this product into more of our systems.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

AppDrawn Software Development's first task was to understand how we operate our previous systems and provide solutions and answers with new ideas when creating our booking system. At each stage of the development, we were kept involved and this allowed us to add our ideas into the overall software package.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The understanding of how we worked and what was needed in our booking system has been incredible. We have been hand-held through the process and are extremely impressed with the delivery of the overall project. I would like to pass on my thanks to all the staff at AppDrawn Software Development and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the director of Play & Learn Education. We’re an educational facility that works with schools in indoor playgrounds. By combining math and English lessons with playtime, we’re able to educate kids in a fun way. We’re beginning to open new centers locally.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire AppDrawn?

We needed resources to create an online management system that allowed schools to store and organize student data, financial accounts, and billing.

Someone recommended them to us. After an initial meeting to discuss the project, we had no doubt that they could deliver our vision within a reasonable price and time frame.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

They designed a user-friendly system to help us store and manage customer data. They also integrated GoCardless to ensure a smooth billing process. Additionally, we’re able to print out information such as class registers on a daily basis. Currently, they’re continuing development and refining the code.

What was the team composition?

We mainly work with their senior developer, who is patient and very helpful.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

While we’re still working on the project, they’ve completed the billing process, which is significantly faster than before. We’ve also noticed fewer errors; if there are any, it’s often due to human error.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They have good communication and can clearly explain the process to us.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They delivered exactly what we asked for.
