Footasylum

Next level transactional and loyalty app developed for one of the most disruptive retailers in the UK. The Task Tasked with reimagining the transactional and loyalty app for one of the leading retailers of fashion streetwear and sportswear, Footasylum approached Apposing with specific challenges. They wanted the ability to have complete control over the look and feel of their app. The new app needed to drive sales revenue
whilst also building brand loyalty and customer engagement. We were challenged with creating a new user experience that would increase the time spent in app. Discovery Workshop We spent a number of days looking at the full concept for Footasylum. Working closely with their team, we discussed their challenges and objectives, taking time to understand what they wanted to achieve. Ensuring an immersive customer experience our team delivered a full competitor analysis, problem solving and ideas sessions. Design A wire frame prototype was created so that Footasylum could test user experience and customer journey. Ensuring the design concepts were on brand, we worked closely with them to bring the ideas to fruition and deliver on their vision. Development We worked on the native iOS and android app natively using Swift and Kotlin languages through various iterations constantly testing and gaining feedback from beta users. We tested various technologies such as QR code scanning for redeeming loyalty points and integrating various payment gateways for transactions. “Apposing understood our challenges from the outset. Bringing together their creativity, knowledge and skills they worked closely with us to deliver on our vision, whilst all the time guiding us with their expertise. Their understanding of mobile and digital products is unparalleled, and they deliver it with a passion and energy that makes them a pleasure to work with. We’re already looking forward to working with them on our next projects.” - Mike Wallwork, Head of Ecommerce

We discussed branding and design along with the more specific requirements of the app. The Design From initial design concepts. We worked with the Tickr team to deliver the new brand and design assets.

Job Matching With Artificial Intelligence The Task Caroo approached Apposing to create an app that matches applicants directly to jobs in the tech, digital and creative sectors using artificial intelligence. Profiling the candidates to understand who they are, and matching them to the latest suitable vacancies was the top priority.

and sharing ideas to gain a greater understanding of their objectives.

The app needed to connect students to their university life, allowing them to do everything from discovering activities, promoting events, and meeting people with the same interests, to viewing exclusive discounts and even simplifying student life with laundry control, and parcel notifications at
the touch of a button. We were also asked to develop an ipad intercom system for student halls of residence.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Though development and testing is still wrapping up, the client is pleased with the progress made and the efforts of Apposing Limited to meet all milestone deadlines throughout the project. Their team was flexible and accommodating in their work, picking up resources to complete all requirements.

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 head of product and design for a company called Car & Away. We are a peer-to-peer car rental business, so we help car owners rent their cars to other people in order to help renters have a better experience than at traditional rental companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Apposing Limited?

We are replatforming all of our backend as well as launching two new apps and our new website, and the scale of the work was such that we knew we couldn’t hire enough resources inhouse, so we brought them on to serve as an extension of our development team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They essentially integrated into our team, taking control of all the frontend elements of the new product, including the iOS and Android apps and then the web platform. We concentrated on building the interfaces from those components into our backend and then worked with their team to integrate the two elements together.

All the work they did on the site was in React, and the two apps are in native languages for the iOS and Android platforms. They actually didn’t have React developers originally, so they brought on resources to be able to complete the project for us.

What is the team composition?

Generally, we have six full-time developers and a project manager, comprised of two React developers, two in Android, and two in iOS as well. Emma (Product Manager) has overseen all that work for us.

How did you come to work with Apposing Limited?

Dave (Director) had a contact who used our system in Gatwick, and the current app is a pilot system, so it’s built for efficiency, but the experience isn’t great. He mentioned to Dave that he could really help us out, and they reached out to us through LinkedIn if we’d be interested at the same time that we were looking for development agency partners.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started in September 2019 and are continuing to work together, although we are wrapping up at the moment.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Their resilience and commitment to the project has been very impressive. They provide high-quality work, and anytime they run into challenges, they are great about finding solutions and overcoming them.

When we required the product to be built in React, rather than trying to convince us to do something not quite as good, they found the resources and built what we needed while barely even delaying the start of the project.

How did Apposing Limited perform from a project management standpoint?

We’ve set strict milestones for payment schedules throughout the work and all of those milestones have been consistently met. Apposing Limited have handled that structure incredibly well, and we’ve typically found that any delays have been on our end in terms of making sure that we had our backend work in place for them to continue their components.

One of the main criteria we had for our partner was that they would work seamlessly with our team, so even though they’re not in our office, they’re using the same tools to make sure that we are constantly aligned and on the same page. We use Slack to communicate back and forth and there hasn’t been any friction in terms of their ability in that regard.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The whole team has been incredibly flexible and accommodating in order to help us discover solutions to problems we’ve never tackled before. Since we are building entirely new technologies, we’ve had to deviate from the plan, and they’ve worked incredibly hard to help us tackle those challenges as a team.

Even though we were using them exclusively as a development partner, they went out of their way to provide suggestions and assistance in the UX/UI and design components that they thought could work well. That was something we really appreciated.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I genuinely think it would be overcritical to say that there’s anything they need to improve. I’ve been totally satisfied with the service they are providing to us.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Approach your project with a very detailed scope of work for what you need to get done and the milestones necessary to getting there. That will help both sides to understand what’s required and what needs to be done next at any point.
