Feedback summary: 

The app’s design has received positive feedback both internally and externally. Despite time differences and language barriers, Appinventiv communicates effectively and works to ensure smooth collaboration. Their team is adaptable, creative, and committed.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the co-founder and CEO of Prothymos Innovations, an innovation company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Appinventiv?

We came up with a peer to peer payment concept idea and we needed a development team to build it for us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Appinventiv developed an iOS app for us. After our first Skype call, their team did market research for us. They laid out a scope of work for what needed to be done and made sure to get our approval on everything throughout the process.

The Appinventiv team integrated a payment gateway platform into the app. At their recommendation, we selected Stripe because it is popular and trusted. There are regulations involved around moving money and Appinventiv was extremely key in getting this done.

What is the team composition?

We worked directly with a project manager from Appinventiv, who had four team members under him that worked on our project. I was also in direct communication with the head of product. 

How did you come to work with Appinventiv?

I read an article about Appinventiv online but wanted to do some more research on them. After finding their profile on Clutch, I read some reviews of Appinventiv from clients who had positive experiences. I knew the reviews were trustworthy, which helped me make my decision.

How much have you invested with them?

We have invested between $100,000–$250,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our ongoing engagement with Appinventiv began in February 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The iOS version of the app is still getting approved, but the feedback we have received has been extremely positive. People love the way the app looks. The design and colors are very attractive.

All of Appinventiv’s insight was helpful, and the final product is beautiful. I’m in awe of it, to be honest. I was just an entrepreneur who had a belief and a vision, and I was in tears when they sent me the latest build. Seeing my vision come to life was a really impactful moment.

How did Appinventiv perform from a project management standpoint?

Appinventiv performs very well. Our teams were in constant communication. There is a major time difference, but they set the tone early on and figured out what time was best for me to meet. They adjusted their schedule to fit our needs.

Their team uses Basecamp to manage projects and kept us constantly aware of what was going on in the project. There was a language gap as well, but they were really helpful and slowed things down a bit for us.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Appinventiv is committed to pleasing their customers. There were a few times where I didn’t care for a particular aspect of the design, and they always immediately made adjustments. Their team quickly responded to resolve the matter. That was really helpful because sometimes you don’t get that level of customer service. It was really encouraging.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s always an opportunity to improve something. We did have a language barrier which was a slight issue early on. It turned into a learning opportunity for both of us. We learned to slow ourselves down so that we could understand each other better. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Try to give clear details so their team can understand you. Be as clear as possible when communicating with them and they’ll take the rest.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the VP of technology for an online coaching and training company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Appinventiv?

We were looking for a company that could build a video-based platform. Since we were expecting more than 100,000 users to come into our app at the same time, we needed the solution to be auto-scalable.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Appinventiv conceptualized and created an educational video app that could auto-scale to accommodate large volumes of users. With the solution, users could collaborate with multiple vendors within the video cloud space as well as stream video.

Their team first conducted a study of 18–20 apps within our domain to benchmark industry best practices. The exercise was meant to help us understand common systems within our field and propose a solution that would suit our needs.

From there, they presented a system architecture that outlined the entire solution into dockers. When one docker would reach its max value, a new docker would launch automatically, allowing us to scale information based on the number of incoming requests. 

We tweaked their solution a bit before they started delivering on the different project phases. They used MongoDB as our database, developed a OneLogin Protect (OTP) component, and built the entire admin side of the app so that we could upload and update content.

What is the team composition?

They assigned around 12–15 resources, including UX designers, developers, and QA experts. I’ve been in contact with everyone involved at different points, depending on the requirements.

How did you come to work with Appinventiv?

I researched roughly 25 vendors across India and met with each in person. Out of all of them, Appinventive was able to grasp our user volume problem and gave us a scalable solution. 

They also understood that we were looking for a partner that could support us throughout the entire journey. We decided to hire them based on their cost, nimble team, and ability to deliver work on time.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $200,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2019. They’ve been with us since the inception and have helped us launch the app in May 2019. We still rely on them to take care of ongoing needs.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The final app meets expectations and does a good job of representing our content. It currently has a 4.8 rating in Google Play with around 650,000 downloads. Add on 45,000 more from the App Store, and that totals around 700,000 downloads.

How did Appinventiv perform from a project management standpoint?

I’d give them high marks for project management. They came up with a development roadmap at the very beginning and have made good recommendations throughout. We use Jira and Basecamp to coordinate. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

The way they interact with our entire team is impressive. They solicit feedback on their inputs and then incorporate our comments to continue iterating. It’s helped us build up a good partnership and mutual understanding with them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I’d like them to be a little more proactive in certain cases.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Involve their top stakeholders on projects so that the team takes your assignment seriously. While working with the project manager and the rest of the team, we’d also speak with the VP,  managing director, and CEO at the same time to keep everyone accountable.

Feedback summary: 

The product delivered by Appinventiv has been extremely well received across multiple platforms, gaining traction in the market right away and satisfying all requirements. Their team is very proactive in their development process, offering unique ideas and being flexible around project milestones.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

My company is essentially a hiring platform for the retail hospitality and service industries. I’m one of the co-founders and also the CTO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AppInventiv?

We were looking to quickly develop a prototype because we thought we had a product-market fit, and we wanted to make sure we could get into the market and see if what we thought and what people wanted ware actually aligned.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The first stage involved design mockups, wireframes, and stories. Now we’ve passed the prototype stage and have had a fully launched product since March 2019, so now they’re helping us build out that product into everything we want it to be.

What is the team composition?

They provided several project managers and iOS and Android developers, as well as web people and QA. Overall, we work with 10–15 people from their team.

How did you come to work with AppInventiv?

We came across AppInventiv on Clutch. We read through feedback from customers and found that they were very professional and have done similar projects in the past. We decided that in terms of value, speed, and time, they just made the most sense.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $220,000 with them so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started the project in February 2018 and are continuing to work together with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

On the App Store, we have all five-star reviews and 4.7 overall on Android. We were able to acquire around 800 employers as well as 7,000–8,000 candidates. Beyond the numbers, we’re very pleased with their work so far and have gotten great reception in terms of our application of the technology and its aesthetics.

How did AppInventiv perform from a project management standpoint?

I actually communicate with their team on a daily basis. We have standups and go back and forth via text and a variety of project management tools depending on the part of the project. We use Jira, Asana, Basecamp, Trello, and sometimes just Google Sheets.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have a really impressive commitment to our business. They really care about what we’re doing, and I really treat them as part of our dev team. I’ve visited them in India and spent a week working with them in person to develop that relationship, and they feel very comfortable giving us feedback and suggestions outside of the direct scope of what we ask them to do.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Nothing stands out to me. We can always work to better understand each other’s operating style and improve how we work together, but there haven’t been any problems.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They will be a very engaged team, but you need to be ready to be engaged as well. When a relationship works, both sides have to be contributing work and ideas. They are extremely willing to go back and forth to produce the best product, but you can’t just hand them a spec and then sit back and expect them to execute exactly what you want.

Feedback summary: 

After several delays, AppInventive delivered a poorly architected app that didn’t work on iOS devices. A code audit by an external dev team confirmed that the app needed to be rewritten from scratch. The lack of project management and error-prone work resulted in the termination of the engagement.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of a company that creates software for religious organizations. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AppInventive?

We needed resources to create a cross-platform iOS/Android app. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

AppInventive was tasked with creating our cross-platform app using React Native. They were supposed to deliver a build at the end of each month, but we didn’t receive anything for the first three and a half months. 

By the fourth month, we still saw delays. They eventually provided us with builds, but they were mostly just UX pieces. Very little was functional, and, when something did work, it wasn’t how we’d wanted it.

In the end, we terminated the project and had another vendor take over. They audited the code and discovered that AppInventive had only programmed one API to connect the app and load over 400 different sections. The coding was so poorly architected that we had to start over entirely. 

What is the team dynamic?

We worked with about 12 people, including 2–3 project managers, 1–2 designers, and then several programmers. 

It felt like they had resources who were dedicated to responding to us because it would always be the same three people. Then there would be others that I’d never met in the group chat.

How did you come to work with AppInventive?

I found them through Clutch, and they had good reviews. But I didn’t realize that they were a sponsored vendor. The more I worked with them and the more research I did, the more I realized that they prioritized their clients based on project size. If you’re not spending at least $500,000 with them, you won’t have a good relationship because they’ll limit their scope of work. 

How much have you invested with them?

We spent a little over $50,000. 

What is the status of this engagement?

The engagement lasted from May–November 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

How did your relationship with the vendor evolve?

Aside from the initial lack of delivery and updates, we started noticing that something was off when every demo was only for the UX. Then they kept asking for more time, which is normal in development projects, but they asked for far beyond what any of our other developers had ever asked.

That’s when I hired another team to go over their code, which was a mess. Our worst fears ended up coming true—we had to start from scratch because all of their code was useless. That’s when we switched over to another provider.

How did AppInventive address the challenges that arose?

They never updated the app while they were working on it and wouldn’t go out of the way to fix anything if it wasn’t explicit in the scope. If we reported something while they were in the middle of a task, they would ask us for an additional 3–4 weeks. By then, another issue would come up.

Describe the impact this engagement has had on your business.

Overall, we didn’t have a good experience with AppInventive. Before we terminated the engagement, we tried to get them to fix everything, but they told us that it would take another 4–6 months (paid) to make sure things ran smoothly. We decided not to go that route.

The design they gave us wasn’t bad, but the app didn’t work at all. Even though the app was supposed to be cross-platform, they couldn’t get the iOS version to work. I’m not even sure where they were having issues there.

How was project management handled?

We were supposed to coordinate on Basecamp, but they never used it. When I asked to use it, they said that it would just end up taking more time.

Is there anything that the vendor did well or that you would consider a strength?

Their responses were always quick, but they never actually met their promises. That’s how they got us to work with them for so long. When I’d ask one of the project managers a question, they would always tell us they’d have to consult the other first.

In what specific areas can they improve?

Besides meeting deadlines, the coding definitely needed improvement. We had to scrap the whole thing because it was so poorly written.

What advice do you have for clients with similar needs to yours?

Take the time to do a little bit more research before choosing AppInventive. If you decide that you want to work with them, give their team a try. But don’t continue the relationship if they miss your first deadline.

What challenge were you trying to address with Appinventiv?

We engaged them to help us streamline the app development process for influencers.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Appinventiv created a system from scratch that is pre-coded so that I can supply all of the artists and creatives with their own personalized applications. Our clients enter information about themselves, and the software system uploads that content into a premade template for the app. Our clients can then distribute that app to the app stores.

What is the team composition?

I spoke with about 10 people, but there could have been more on their team.

How did you come to work with Appinventiv?

I received quotes from about a dozen app development companies, but I went with Appinventiv based on the conversations we had. They were really thorough. Their attention to detail was outstanding, and they understood the process that I needed after a few minutes of conversation.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent more than $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in September 2018, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The software and system they put in place are working exactly how we need them to. I couldn’t ask for much more.

How did Appinventiv perform from a project management standpoint?

Everything was on time, but I was made aware of any delays along the way. They followed through on their promises, and their attention to detail was pretty flawless. We tracked the project through Basecamp, and Skype was our primary communication tool.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their communication skills are notable. I never had to wait long for a response. They quickly answered any question I had.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, there’s nothing worth mentioning. It was an easy process.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I’d recommend working with them.

Feedback summary: 

Appinventiv successfully delivered a first-of-its-kind app that features powerful calculation capabilities along with an intuitive UI. Professional and cost-effective, the team brings a can-do attitude when faced with technical challenges. They’re now preparing for the second development phase.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a multinational light installation company, providing lighting solutions for a wide range of applications (e.g., offices, schools, roads, private homes). Our offices span Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and more. I serve as the managing director of the Danish office and am also part of the management team across all locations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Appinventiv?

In the lighting industry, there are a lot of regulations to follow, so it’s important to understand how much light a project requires as well as how that light spreads in its environment. Although there are several programs on the market that can calculate those logistics, they’re all complicated to use. You’d need to be a highly-educated professional to make sure that you’re staying within regulations.

So, we decided to make a user-friendly app that allows independent contractors to easily calculate lighting needs while meeting regulations. We’d actually created an initial version with a local company, but it wasn’t as successful as we’d hoped. Appinventiv joined the project to help us build a new app from scratch.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

Appinventiv has worked closely with our team to create a lighting calculation app for iOS/Android, iPad, and web. It’s quite a complicated project, so we wanted to make sure that the solution featured a nice-looking interface to streamline the UX. 

By using our app, it’s now possible to calculate a building’s lighting needs down to individual rooms with a single click. When a user logs in, they can access installation data directly from our servers to help evaluate their needs. The app will then determine the lighting requirements based on the user’s inputs, ensure that it’s within regulations, and produce a PDF quote. 

To do this, we collaborated with another software company to build a lumen calculation engine. Appinventiv’s team connected that engine to the app before linking it with our product information management servers. We’ve recently finished the first part of our project and are working with them on the second.

What is the team composition? 

There’s a tech lead who coordinates the project along with about 4–5 programmers. Additional resources join in from time to time, depending on the development needs.

How did you come to work with Appinventiv?

As I’ve mentioned, we’d worked with a local developer to build the first version of our app. However, it wasn’t as user-friendly as we’d liked, and the project was getting insanely expensive with every change. So, we decided to forgo that version and start over.

We knew that we wanted to outsource the work abroad. It wasn’t a question of finding the cheapest vendor but, rather, finding a company that conducted themselves professionally. After searching online, I shortlisted about 5–7 options that had a decent website and good references. I sent them a short tender to see if they could handle the assignment, looking at their time estimates and pricing.

Out of all of the candidates, Appinventiv gave a fantastic first impression. They delivered a professional PDF of their offer, which included all of our asks. They explained how the process would work, went into another client case that was similar, and came in for an interview. In the end, we chose them because we had the best gut-feeling.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $250,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in January 2018, and it’s ongoing. We’ve finished the initial requirements and have requested more features along the way. We’re now entering the second part of the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The solution is pretty amazing; it works, is user-friendly, and seems to be bug-free. In terms of the design, it’s easy to look at and is consistent with our company brand. It’s hard to say how many users will join our app since we’ve just released it, but we’re pretty confident that this will be a success.

How did Appinventiv perform from a project management standpoint?

It’s been excellent because we have our own project management system. We communicate through phone and Skype meetings, and they give us weekly updates on what they’ve done and have planned. I’ve also visited their offices in India about 3–4 times.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The most impressive thing about working with Appinventiv is that not once have they said “no” to a request. We often give them difficult tasks, but they’ve always come through. They’ve really built the world for us. Our solution’s capabilities are more complicated, but the use is far simpler. 

On top of that, when I first met them, they had around 150–200 employees. They’ve since doubled their headcount to over 400 in about 1.5 years. That really says something about them as a company.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, we’re happy about the work they’ve done for us.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If you don’t know what you want going into the project and haven’t sorted out the details from the start, then it’s unlikely that you’ll succeed. It gets harder and more expensive to change your ideas as you continue forward.

Furthermore, you should communicate your vision to Appinventiv early on so that they can prepare for it when the time comes. That’s what we did. We began with a simple build but were quite open about where we wanted to eventually go. As a result, their team developed the backend with our goals in mind, which has made it easier for us now that we’re getting to the second part of our project.

Feedback summary: 

Appinventiv successfully delivered the applications, which have drawn promising initial praise. The development team is engaged and organized thanks to a practical project management approach. They have proven to be a results-oriented partner by always looking for solutions.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of Pickles. We focus on empowering communities from 2 million members upward. Our first target was churches, and now we’re expanding into other types of communities. We provide platforms and manage content data, membership, and all the things a community needs to get organized quickly.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Appinventiv?

We engaged Appinventiv to manage the entire lifecycle of development. We needed an outsourced firm because the costs in my country are among the highest in the world.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I came up with basic user stories and explained them all in a PowerPoint for Appinventiv. After they had all of the necessary documentation, they used React Native to build applications for iOS and Android.

The product is a church community platform with about 12 million people in South Africa. It manages all the tithes and donations that go to the church, which are usually cash donations. The churches were looking for a way of bringing a digital solution to sort those contributions. We also expanded the platform to serve as a means to connect members of the community. For example, if a user is looking for an electrician or a doctor, he or she can crowdsource recommendations from anybody else in the network. The app also provides relevant content, as determined by user settings. There are also tools where the users can chat among themselves or donate to the church.

What is the team composition?

There are 11 people on the entire team, but I only communicate with 2–3 of them.

How did you come to work with Appinventiv?

Following extensive online research, I connected with a few India-based companies. I had one company put together a demo app, but the organization and services didn’t meet my standards. I ultimately selected Appinventiv based on their online reviews. I also received promising referrals about them on LinkedIn.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $100,000–$120,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began in December 2018 and remains ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have received very positive feedback on the applications to this point.

How did Appinventiv perform from a project management standpoint?

They have an internal rating system for every milestone that puts a bit of pressure on developers to maintain quality and ensure that every task is addressed. We use Basecamp, Skype, and email to communicate and trace the development process.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Appinventiv is quick to provide a solution rather than focus on the problem. They don’t waste any time turning around problems. If I don’t know what to do, they give suggestions to choose from. They’ve also been available at all times to work through issues.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It’s not a big issue, but if there’s a change in the scope, they should give better flexibility between the proposal and the wireframes and design. The developers are focused on the wireframes while the business analysts are focused on the scope. They need to pay attention to the changes in scope and have them reflected in the wireframes.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be clear on all of the details and features you need in your app before discussing the price.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of Bluemint Labs. Our company is building a handsfree car application.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Appinventiv?

We hired Appinventiv to help us with Android development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The team is currently developing our Android application. Our product is a handsfree car application that drivers can interact with without getting distracted from the road in front of them. It includes many different functionalities.

Parts of the application are compatible with Uber and Lyft, since people who work for the rideshare programs are often using their phone all the time while driving to pick up riders and navigate using GPS. Our goal in building our app was to enable specific drivers like these to manage their day-to-day activities safely.

A graphic designer from a different company designed all the screens. I provided those materials to Appinventiv to implement according to the specifications. 

Right now, we’re still trying to figure out certain technical issues to clean up. Once we resolve these issues, we should be able to launch our app.
 
What is the team composition?

Appinventiv assigned us a dedicated teammate to manage all the resources. The team includes two developers.

How did you come to work with Appinventiv?

After contacting about 20 companies, I shortlisted five of them. 
We chose Appinventiv based on the quality of their prior work and the detailed answers they gave to my questions.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $20,000-$30,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in October 2018, and the work is ongoing.
 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app we’re creating together meets all of our expectations so far. Appinventiv has been very proactive about fixing any bugs that come up. 

Appinventiv has never let anything interfere with our project’s scope and timeline. They made sure to prepare for breaks during some holidays by finishing all their responsibilities beforehand. The team even provides extra resources if necessary to complete the work on time.

How did Appinventiv perform from a project management standpoint?

Someone from Appinventiv managed the resources, but they had a different role than a project manager. The engineers communicated well. We used Skype and WhatsApp to correspond.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I was impressed by how well Appinventiv has provided a robust solution. They have the ability to scale as needed.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s nothing they need to improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I recommend providing clear requirements and specifications, and then keeping thorough documentation. Make sure they understand everything you want to get across fully before starting the project.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We needed a company to help us flesh out the concept for and develop a mobile app for our business.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We specified all our expectations and provided the mockups. Based on these materials, Appinventiv developed the wireframes, delivered precise specifications, and proposed project management for the application. 

The team developed every aspect of our iOS and Android applications very quickly. They delivered several features for each version. Using our products, users can read their weekly horoscope and specific astrological reports. The apps also help them find monetization products and e-books to purchase. 

Right now, our entire platform is in English, but we have ambitions to develop it in other languages. Appinventiv also manages the server and provides maintenance. They are the sole supplier and provider for all the IT services concerning this application.

What is the team composition?

The team included were three developers and a project manager.

How did you come to work with Appinventiv?

We launched a request for proposal (RFP) to find a vendor. Of all the companies that responses, we were the most impressed by Appinventiv. 

Very soon after we connected, they presented a clear plan with a detailed breakdown of all the tasks. Their methodology seemed very convincing.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent over $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from May–November 2017.

How did Appinventiv perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management is a true strength of this company. We were pleasantly surprised by their efficient service and productive methodology. The project management tool we used was very effective. We held a Skype meeting either weekly or every day.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Appinventiv was very flexible about the cost. They were closely involved in the entire project. I especially appreciated that they even managed our interactions with other providers. We had a very pleasant experience working with Appinventiv.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, there’s nothing I would suggest they improve.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the product manager for India’s largest online B2B marketplace, working to connect buyers with suppliers. With 60% market share of the online B2B classified space in India, the channel focuses on providing a platform for small and medium enterprises (SMEs), large enterprises, and individuals.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Appinventiv?

Although we have a strong hold within the web world, we wanted to pursue and strengthen opportunities within the mobile domain. We came to Appinventiv to expand our web portal on mobile devices.

What were your goals for this project?

Our major objective was to expand our platform into the mobile domain to grow our user base. To do that, we needed to leverage the experience of a well-established mobile development agency that had prior experience with similar e-commerce brands to enhance our efforts.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

The complete selection process took around a month, during which we evaluated agencies across India and Europe based on their cost, detailed proposal, location, and past work experience. First and foremost, we were concerned with each vendor’s time commitment and work quality since we didn’t want to compromise on the quality of our end product. 

Out of all of the candidates, Appinventiv gave us a lot of insight into the e-commerce verticals, and we were impressed with their work and experience. We also closely followed their office culture on social media. Companies with a good internal culture are more likely to perform creatively, and we felt confident about Appinventiv’s values.

Describe the project in detail.

Appinventiv is currently developing a B2B e-commerce app that serves as an extension of our web platform. The app brings manufacturers and customers together on a single platform, removing intermediaries from the loop. Users can also sell and purchase anything under the sun, from office equipment and home décor to manufacturing instruments. Their team is working on building out features including lead feeds, lead management, chat modules, a buyer dashboard, and more.

What was the team composition?

Our team works closely with a subset of theirs—which consists of developers and QA experts—to talk about the scope of the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Appinventiv has been a constant support in our app development efforts for the past eight months. Our app is now live with over 100,000 monthly active users, ranking ninth in the business category and having a 4.4 rating in The App Store.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their workflow is very smooth and effective all in all. They reply almost instantly every time we have an issue and are very proactive in pointing out foreseeable challenges and how to solve them.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The most impressive thing about Appinventiv is that they go above and beyond to ensure that we hit our milestones well within time. We have no reason to complain or change the development flow. We’re so connected that, at times, it feels as if they’re acting more as partners than as a one-time vendor.

Are there any areas for improvement?

While the engagement has been good so far, I initially struggled in understanding the initial onboarding process. We sorted out the confusion after the first week, but it could have been avoided.
