About

The classic Romanian "Fazan" game, on mobile phones with the ability to play against the phone or another opponent.

  

Details

As challenges for this project we had the time sinchronization and real time communication between 2 players. We haven't used out of box solutions such as Firebase as the client was against those so we have built our own technology. The

communcation framework (https://github.com/appssemble/appssembleCommunicationFramework) works over WebRTC as well as in local networks areas where there is no internet connection. Our framework ensures real time communication and time synchronisation.

Feedback summary: 

Though the app has yet to launch, internal stakeholders are pleased with appssemble’s performance. The team is forthcoming and reliable when it comes to deadlines, communication, and project progress.

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 director of a fitness company. We do online livestream training.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with appssemble?

We needed a partner to help build an app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The appssemble team was brought on board to develop our mobile app. It’s a native app that streams live one-on-one or group training sessions. It’s based on a membership subscription.

What is the team composition?

I mainly speak with Dragos (Co-Founder). 

How did you come to work with appssemble?

I found them on Clutch. I also had a friend who had partnered with appssemble before who’d had a good experience, so I decided to reach out to them. As I spoke to them, I felt they’d be a good fit for our project.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about €27,000 (approximately $31,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

The project began in June 2020 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app hasn’t launched yet, but we’re pleased with their performance so far. The team is on point and clear, supportive, and good with direction. They’re great at coming up with new ideas, which has helped move the project along well. 

How did appssemble perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve managed the project excellently.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We’re particularly impressed with appssemble’s integrity. Also, their ability to stick to timelines is fantastic. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could improve their price, but apart from that, they’re excellent. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Jump on board with appssemble. They’re amazing.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The finished product has boasted an impressive lead generation rate of 64%. Appsemble delivered an excellent app that introduces a novel concept to users: that the possibilities with neon signs are endless. With their dedication and timely deliveries, the team has secured an ongoing collaboration.

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 work for a company that creates custom neon lights. We specialize in the recent trend of neon words and phrases as decoration, but we also provide traditional signs — for, say, casinos and bars.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Appsemble?

Neon signs are handmade, so they can take the shape of anything. However, we found that customers, in the face of endless options, have trouble pinning down what they want. So, we wanted to standardize our offerings and to create a configurator that would enable users to design their own sign and then possibly order it.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I presented them with my concept for a web app, and my only requirement was that they integrate it with my existing platform and Stripe, for payments. We instead decided to do a mobile app instead. Appsemble delivered a few mockups and wireframes for me to approve.

They ultimately created iOS and Android apps that can visualize any phrase or motif as a neon sign. Inside the app, you can choose between different fonts, colors, sizes, and forms. You can then see how it’d look on your own wall.

They provide ongoing maintenance, insofar that they’re happy to incorporate any minor tweaks or changes. We’ve requested some font updates, which they’ve incorporated.

What is the team composition?

I was only in contact with the project manager.

How did you come to work with Appsemble?

My friend, who works in prosthetics, recommended them to me. They’d collaborated on an app made for doctors to show their patients how they’d look with a ceramic prosthetic. I contacted them after I envisioned a similar visualization app for my own business.

How much have you invested with them?

I spent somewhere between $10,000–$25,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started the project in October 2019, and the work is still ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our analytics have shown that once they install the app, 64% of customers request a price quote and are thus converted into leads. We’ve gotten very positive feedback from users who seem to love the app. It’s difficult to grasp how, with neon signs, the possibilities are endless — and the platform has been successful in introducing that concept to users.

How did Appsemble perform from a project management standpoint?

They were excellent. We saw a very quick turnaround with the first version of the app, and they provided me with updates and were quick to resolve any bugs. We had Skype meetings every two weeks, and we utilized Google Colab to track and troubleshoot errors.

What did you find most impressive about them?

When I first contacted Appsemble, I didn’t think I’d actually work with them, because I knew that they specialized in mobile while I was only looking to create a web app. I really appreciated the fact that even though they knew their chances of winning me as a client were slim, they took the time to understand my needs.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The first version of the app was a little more fundamental than I would’ve liked, but that’s to be totally expected. They were very quick to deliver it, so I really don’t have any complaints.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Try to explain your goals in terms of the business impact. Instead of focusing on precise requirements, let them know what effect you want to generate with the product.

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 engineer at Innotech, a stainless-steel installation company in the food and beverage industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with appssemble?

We needed someone to develop a mobile application that would overview all of our projects, as we have up to 20 projects ongoing at once. We needed to be able to see the hours, people, and resources we spend on each project. Overall, we wanted to be able to use this app to see which projects went well and which did not.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed our mobile application for iOS and Android. They’re now adding more features. The last feature we added allows us to implement our travel form. When we go to the customer’s side, we can utilize the travel form using this application.

What is the team composition?

There were two programmers, one designer, a project manager, and a tester.

How did you come to work with appssemble?

I found other companies and had some offers. My friend who works with appssemble recommended them to me.

How much have you invested with them?

Over 100,000 euros ($133,690 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in August 2019 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Initially, they weren’t that happy with the application because it was something new for them. It just took some time to get used to it. Currently, they’re happy and they like it. They see that the application makes their job easier on some sides.

How did appssemble perform from a project management standpoint?

The whole collaboration has been really good. Communication is good. We use email, Skype, and in-person meetings once a month.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They really love what they do and are really involved in their work. They’re really nice guys and always open to what we ask them to do for us. I’m 100% happy with the collaboration.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I have nothing bad to say about them. Everything is good.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I recommend using them. They can find a solution for everything.
