The Review
Feedback summary: 

90% of students used the app since the engagement began, while 86% gave the app a positive review. Communication was never stifled by too much technical jargon. Appello Software’s responsiveness and ability to turn constructive feedback into implementable deliverables were hallmarks of their work.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m an advisor for an internship program for university students across Australia.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We needed to create a simple platform that’s intuitive for advisors and students to help improve communication. It also needs to allow students to complete key milestones throughout their internships.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted all of our students to be able to access this app so that they could provide feedback. It’s the best way for us to contact them and to find out information as almost all students have access to mobile phones. A student suggested that we should develop an app instead of sending constant emails.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found them through a student’s recommendation. We looked at around 10 vendors and felt that Appello Software was able to solve our challenge.

Describe the project in detail.

Appello Software was involved in the entire process, from UI/UX design to production and coding. We gave them our ideas for how we wanted the app to look. They gave us feedback to help steer the course toward the final product.

The key feature we wanted them to incorporate was Google Forms, which is the main way our team communicates. The app is available on both Android and iOS because we needed to cater to all students.

What was the team composition?

We worked most closely with Cameron (CEO, Appello Software), who managed the relationship with our team. There were also several developers and designers involved with the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve seen 90% of our students use the app in the first six months, which is amazing. We used the app to conduct a survey asking for feedback on the app itself. The results were that 86% of students found the app to be helpful, as well as easier to communicate with advisors. The fact that they were able to incorporate Google Forms made it much easier for our team. We’ve also gotten a positive response on its ease of use and the look and feel. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We communicated through Slack and Google Hangouts. Appello Software was quite responsive and did a good job of managing our expectations. They responded quickly to all the critical feedback that we provided. That strengthened our relationship because we felt more comfortable discussing any problems that arose.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Given they’re a new company, I’m so impressed with their knowledge. They were able to explain technical terms in a way that was extremely helpful to our team throughout the journey. The overall experience was great. They knew what we needed before we could even say it. We will definitely use them again if we ever need a new app developed.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There were some hiccups, as we’d expect with any project that’s creating something new. However, they delivered above and beyond our expectations. We’re very happy with the result.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Appello Software?

We wanted to gain more traction for our brand with a mobile booking service app.

A lot of people are using the app, and we’ve seen a corresponding increase in leads and revenue. Our clients enjoy how simple it is.

We used Slack to communicate, and Appello Software was highly responsive. They excelled at generating ideas we hadn’t thought of before.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their quick response times were extremely helpful.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not that I saw.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Lay out your project before you begin working with them. Our project would have benefitted from us doing so.

Feedback summary: 

Although the platform has not yet launched, it met every requirement and expectation. Appello Software's lean workflow, responsive communication, and attention to detail made the process effortless. They respected the timeline and budget while delivering an outstanding product. 

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Vidya is an online course delivery platform that helps small businesses deliver educational material to their audiences. I'm the founder and CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

I hired Appello Software to develop the web platform and accompanying mobile apps. I wanted to deliver a flexible tool that helped small businesses enhance their existing offerings. I didn't have enough knowledge of the latest web technologies, so I searched for a team with suitable skills.

What were your goals for this project?

The products needed to be responsive on all devices. They also needed secure media delivery features, a payment gateway, and several types of user accounts. I wanted to use the latest languages to create a robust, extendable platform. Since we're an online business, we wouldn't exist without our platform.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I considered a handful of solo developers, but soon realized my own design skills weren't sufficient. Next, I called a few companies and asked for cost estimates. My concept was still vague, but Appello Software asked the best questions and helped me refine the concept. They were extremely supportive and understood how to bring a vague concept to reality.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They summarized our initial features in a few high-level objectives. Then they designed the interface, which reassured me that they had captured the concept. Finally, they developed the platform and mobile apps. They did an amazing job, helped me with everything within their expertise, and referred me to good people if they couldn't complete a task. 

What was the team composition?

Approximately eight people were involved in the project. The team grew and shrunk as they brought in new skill sets. I mainly worked with the CEO, project manager, interface designer, and marketing consultant.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have no metrics yet, since the product hasn't gone live. So far, however, they're on track with the initial budget. There's been little need to change the scope of work, and the results have exceeded all expectations. They deliver professional, high-quality work, and don't waste time with meetings or heavy documentation. 

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We collaborated a lot, and I could see their resources at every stage. I wasn't strict about deadlines since my priority was staying within the budget. We used Slack, Trello, and Zoom. Some of the team was in a different time zone, but this didn't cause problems. Everyone had a command of the English language.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The most impressive thing about Appello Software was their efficient focus on delivering a quality product while meeting budget requirements. They went above and beyond every other software development company that I'd hired before.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There were no obvious areas for improvement. They met all my needs.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Appello Software delivered a high-quality application that supports location-based software and complex algorithms. By receiving over 50,000 users after going live on The App Store, the platform is accepted by users as a viable dating app. Their project manager facilitates a transparent experience.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the chief design officer of a mobile dating app. My responsibilities include working directly with the development team to ensure that their build is faithful to our original design.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Appello Software?

My team handled the design effort internally, but we needed a development firm to build the platform’s backend and implement the UI/UX.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Appello Software translated our design into a functioning dating application. They built out the entire platform for iOS and coded the UI/UX to look nearly identical to our original wireframes. The technology stack includes AWS, Backbone.js, Google Analytics, Google Maps, Fabric, Firebase, Zeplin, Branch, Dropbox, Docker, WordPress, GitLab, and Sketch. We’re looking to develop an Android version in the future.

We came up with several complicated algorithms to facilitate the app’s location-based map functionality. This system interacts with how the user is represented on the map, how often they’re logged in, and the person’s proximity to other users. This all determines who users see populated in their individual results field. Implementing these algorithms was quite the challenge, but Appello Software didn’t hesitate to accept the task. The whole project took over 6,000 hours of work to complete. During that process, there was never a point where I thought they wouldn’t be able to accomplish something due to a lack of skill.

They assisted us with marketing the product once it was ready for launch. That effort helped the app become an accelerated program for both Facebook and Google. Being a multidisciplinary firm, they’re able to provide valuable advice regarding a variety of topics. As a result, they continue to support the platform when necessary.

What is the team composition?

They allocated five developers, including three iOS specialists and two full-stack resources. We also communicated with QA testers and an assigned project manager.

How did you come to work with Appello Software?

They were recommended to me along with a few other companies. I researched the options and felt that Appello Software could best provide what I wanted to accomplish.

How much have you invested with them?

The project cost around £210,000 (approximately $276,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

Development took place from September 2017­–April 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Considering the product reviews on The App Store, the feedback has been incredible. Appello Software created an application that’s intuitive and capable of producing positive results for each user. The app is highly rated on Product Hunt where it has received over 400 upvotes. Their replication of our design is 99% accurate. Getting this right the first time saved us a lot of money. Not all development firms have an eye for detail that honed. Also, their marketing assistance helped the platform reach 50,000 users within several months of the initial launch.

How did Appello Software perform from a project management standpoint?

We worked according to a project requirement document. Their project manager took out different features and pipelined them into kanban system that the developers used to organize each task. That process kept each party informed regarding the project’s progression relative to scheduled milestones. Requesting additional features was also quite easy. We’d reach out to the project manager, and they’d integrate the task with the project’s backlog.

Another key attribute of Appello Software is their responsiveness. We use Slack and phone calls to communicate, so we’re never left waiting for a response. Despite working remotely, they’re able to bridge the gap and work alongside as much as possible.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I equate value to the rate at which a firm can produce quality products. By that measurement, Appello Software excels beyond the norm. They represent the difference between a good service provider and a great service provider. Not only are they capable of competently completing tasks, but they’re also willing to add an extra flair to their deliverables to make a project noteworthy. Their team is a joy to work with because they’re more like artists than developers.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t have anything to recommend regarding my needs or experience. As general advice, they should focus on scaling up their team so they can eventually serve bigger clients.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Being able to explain precisely what you want to be done will save both time and money.
