What was the scope of their involvement?
appsolute GmbH built our Android application from scratch. They are currently developing new features for the Android app that are already available for iOS.
Since we started our platform four years, we’ve worked with an iOS-only developer who also handles the backend development. That’s why appsolute GmbH only oversees the Android version. We have the same features within both versions of the application, and we develop it in parallel.
We are also currently developing a new chat system. We already had one but needed to replace it.
What is the team composition?
We have a team of three people. We’re in contact directly with the project manager and sometimes with the two developers as well. I am not sure if there are others in the background.
How did you come to work with appsolute GmbH?
We did some market research here in Germany and searched for people who could develop Android apps. We looked at three companies and took a look at what they were doing. appsolute GmbH showed us some examples of reference cases that looked extremely good and interesting. They had a good track record and aren’t that far away from us in Frankfurt—if we needed to see them in person, we could be there in one hour. The price was okay as well, so we chose their team.
How much have you invested in them?
We have spent €80,000–€100,000 Euros (approximately $88,000–$110,000 USD).
What is the status of this engagement?
The project started in March 2017 and is ongoing.
