What was the scope of their involvement?
Appingine developed a car rental app for our company that can be used anywhere in the world to locate our nearest franchise or point of contact using GPS. Our app also lists car categories and allows users to make customizations according to their budget. Once downloaded, it takes the user through a registration process. They can then easily browse the app to find what they’re looking for.
We started by asking Appingine to develop the native Android version of our app, which took a bit longer to do. We were happy with their work, so their next task was building an iOS version. However, we later stopped iOS development for internal reasons.
Appingine guided us throughout the design and development process. Initially, they asked us to complete detailed documents that covered all functionalities and features related to the app. They gave us a few suggestions and multiple design options. That was helpful, given that we didn’t have that much knowledge of mobile apps before starting the project.
What is the team composition?
I believe the team had 9–10 people. They assigned us a project manager, but we also interacted with their designers, developers, and QA testers. This made the process smoother.
How did you come to work with Appingine?
We researched a few companies and found Appingine.
How much have you invested with them?
Appingine charged $48,000–$49,000 for development. We made a few changes during the development phase, which increased the cost a bit.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with Appingine in November 2016, and the project took 7–8 months to finish. I believe it ended in July 2017. We’re planning to build a CRM with Appingine by the first quarter of 2020.
