The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m CEO and the founder of a startup created to help people manage their savings.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Appstronauts?

We approached the company with a vision for a mobile app to manage savings in a fun and effective way, through a mobile device. We had an idea to equip people with a tool where they can add a saving goal, the amount of money needed, and then choose the frequency of passing the money on it.

The main purpose of the app was helping people to stay focused on the goal and stop them from spending money impulsively. We wanted to reach users on iOS and Android.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed Appstronauts to design and develop this app in the shortest time possible to put our idea on the market quickly. We wanted to develop apps for iOS and Android as fast as possible.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were looking for a company that could provide us with a dedicated team of specialists offering high quality at a reasonable price. When we talked to Appstronauts, from the first moments we saw that they are perfectly organized and know how to lead the project to success. They were very enthusiastic about our idea and built our trust offering a detailed contract to secure our rights and interest.

Describe the project in detail.

Appstronauts took holistic care of our project. They provided us with UX/UI design, frontend development and backend development. Quality Assurance engineers were involved in our project from the very beginning, and the whole process was supervised by a Project Manager.

The company advised us on the best tools, technologies, and recommended cross-platform development. These were great ideas that allowed us to shorten the time to market and show our product to the world quickly. Appstronauts managed to deliver an MVP of our app for iOS and Android in 3 months.

To create our app faster, they chose to use the Ionic framework. It allowed them to share a great part of the code between iOS and Android. Also, thanks to that, only one team was working on our project which contributed to lower cost. The final effect was excellent.

What was the team composition?

We were working with a dedicated team that consisted of full-stack developers (frontend and backend), UX and UI designer, Quality Assurance specialist and a Project Manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app was warmly received by initial users and allowed us to start building a business around it.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The project was organized according to the Agile/Scrum methodology and guided by a Project Manager. The whole process was really impressive and effective. The development team was working in two-week sprints, and at the end of each sprint, we were presented with the newest results.

On a daily basis, we were able to track the progress and time reports in Jira. We could talk to the team whenever we needed to. The company was organizing video calls using Slack to keep us in the loop. The team was always honouring our feedback.

Appstronauts were able to make decisions quickly and implement changes without hesitation. Thanks to that kind of project management, everything was delivered on time.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

What impressed us a lot, was that Appstronauts genuinely cared about open and transparent communication. In outsourcing mutual trust is crucial and in my opinion, it contributed a lot to the final success.

We felt like they were a part of our team and really engaged in our success. We also think that the way the company organizes projects is very impressive. They have everything under control and deliver on time.

We appreciate that they advised us on the best development direction and technologies, which allowed us to show our product to the world really fast. We’re delighted with the partnership and its results.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Nothing comes up to my mind, we are really delighted about our cooperation with Appstronauts.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Appstronauts?

We needed additional team members during the implementation of our Ionic app project. We were searching for a company that would provide experienced Ionic developers to support the project.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to deliver flawless web and mobile apps for one of the world’s largest banks. The project was about creating a perfectly operating app that would enable the bank’s employees to register their business trips.

SOLUTION

We were looking for a vendor who would provide us with developers specialized in creating web and mobile apps with the Ionic Framework. Appstronauts have certified specialists and an excellent portfolio of Ionic projects. They are experienced Ionic specialists, and that was exactly what we were looking for.

We created cross-platform web and mobile apps for one of the biggest banks in the world. Apps’ goal is to allow employees to plan and account their business trips. An employee can add various expenses and information connected to trips that already took place and the ones that are scheduled. The supervisor, on the other hand, has the ability to manage all the trips, as well as accept/decline the scheduled ones. Appstronauts helped us with the frontend of the apps, which was created with Ionic and Angular. While delivering the apps Appstronauts team used continuous integration and continuous delivery. It allowed for earlier bug detection and serious cost reduction

What was the team composition?

The team consisted of one Project Manager and one full-stack mobile developers

The whole project was organized with the Scrum framework, with one-week sprints. Each day started with a daily when they planned the entire work, and each sprint ended with a demo day when new features were presented in real-time. To communicate, Appstronauts used Slack, and for managing the project - Jira. The communication with each member of the team was excellent. The Project Manager was looking after implementing everything according to the plan. The whole project was managed and organized transparently, and Appstronauts were very supportive. It allowed for smooth collaboration and timely releases of new features.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a Store Manager at Decathlon. Our company is the largest French sporting goods retailer in the world. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Appstronauts?

We’re well-known for our big retail stores, but we also have concept stores in various cities. Recently, our concept stores entered Poland, and we needed a mobile app to optimize the work of the back office. We wanted to improve the communication between local stores in order to facilitate the process of shipping products from one store to another and deliver a required product to a client on the same day they requested it.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed an app that would enable a salesperson to communicate easily with other stores and warehouses to check the supplies and to order, on client’s requirement, an item or clothing from another local store. The app should allow our employees to make an order, confirm a transaction, generate a bill of lading, and a code to self-service checkout for a client. We also needed an easy-to-use panel for store managers.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We searched for a software house in the nearby area. Our goal was to find a company from Warsaw that offers rapid development of an MVP, high-quality of the developed product, and could handle a long term relationship. Appstronauts' team fulfilled our requirements and showed us a portfolio of previously created products. They turned out to be experienced in progressive web apps (PWA). We’ve selected this company based on their competitive offer and experience.

Describe the project in detail.

Appstronauts provided us with UX and UI design at the beginning of our project. Then, they designed the whole system architecture and developed a PWA using the Ionic framework. The MVP was created in a couple of months.

We received the app that covers both sales and logistics modules and has an intuitive admin panel. Developing a PWA allows us to have a useful web application that can be also added to the home screen like a mobile app and delivers a native mobile experience. The whole time Appstronauts provided us with IT consulting, we could count on their advice and experience.

What was the team composition?

The team was composed of 3 full-stack developers and a UX/UI designer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

At this moment, we have an MVP that is used by our salesmen in concept stores at Warsaw. The app allows us to optimize work, significantly accelerate the process of delivering required products to clients, and facilitate communication between stores. Now our local stores are connected, and sales associates can easily send items between them.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Appstronauts used Agile methodology, and the whole work was divided into sprints. We could track the progress in Jira, and after each sprint, new features were presented to us during a demo. The team appreciated our feedback and implemented every suggestion. We used Slack for daily communication, mostly cooperated with Project Manager but also could communicate with developers directly. The whole project was well-organized, and the process was very effective.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I especially appreciated open communication and friendly atmosphere during the project. Appstronauts treated us like a partner and did their best to provide us with a product that complied with our requirements. The company approached the project with a lot of enthusiasm.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We received a polished product that met our requirements. We appreciate the partnership.

I'm the CEO of a startup that was created to unite craft beer lovers in Poland. We have a mobile app that allows beer passionates to find places that serve their favorite beverages.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Appstronauts?

We hired Appstronauts to develop a functional, visually attractive mobile app.

What were your goals for this project?

The goal was to quickly create an informational app that allows users to search for new flavors easily, but also carries the idea of a community of those passionate about beer. The ideal app would differentiate us in the market, providing a detailed base of craft beer pubs and prices.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were searching for developers in Warsaw that could offer high quality, rapid development with a competitive price and excellent project management. Appstronauts offered all of this, plus we were thrilled about their approach, engagement, and ideas.

Describe the project in detail.

Appstronauts provided us with UX and UI design ideas. We brainstormed together, participating in design thinking sessions. Iterations of the solution were tested in a group of future users. The MVP was finished in four weeks.

They used Atomic Design Methodology and an Ionic framework for app development. They prioritized quality frontend development, access to native device features, and a polished UX. They added user-centric features such as a geolocation function to the solution. 

What was the team composition?

The team consisted of a UX designer, a graphic designer, and two full-stack developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The mobile app was the core of our startup, and it turned out to be a success. Beer passionates were very enthusiastic about the solution. Also, whenever parts of the app were tested on future users, it was clear that Appstronauts drove the project in the right direction. Now, the final version is available at the app store. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We were always up-to-date on the team’s workflow. We remained in regular contact with developers and the project manager. Appstronauts informed us about every status change, and we could also track their progress in Jira. The whole project was organized very effectively, and we were able to give our feedback and adjust the requirements at each stage of the process.
 

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Appstronauts were not just our developers — they also supported the business side of our project as they were invested in our success. They treated us as a valued partner and showed enthusiasm as if they were a part of our team. We really appreciated their open communication and efficient work processes.

Are there any areas for improvement?

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m a project manager at Agora SA, also known as Agora Media Group. A major media company in Poland, we own several radio stations including Radio Złote Przeboje. I oversee new digital products and relationships with partners.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Appstronauts?

Our mobile application for Radio Złote Przeboje was last updated in 2013, and its downloads were falling short of our goals. We engaged Appstronauts to lead a total rebuild of the app.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to create a competitive radio app that would attract new users and increase user engagement. It needed engaging functionalities and a high level of usability and reliability. We also wanted to update and maintain the app easily going forward. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Our team searched for app developers in Warsaw. We wanted a company that offers high-quality products, rapid development, and transparent project management at reasonable rates. Appstronauts provided a competitive offer with an appealing tech stack, so we chose them.

Describe the project in detail.

We first provided Appstronauts with a new design of the app. The team built new functions and an improved UX for the app. They developed it as a cross-platform app using Ionic Framework. 

Key functionalities include an alarm clock, a geolocation feature that finds the nearest radio station, a contest mechanism, sharing, analytical tools, communication features, and integration with Google AdMob. 

What was the team composition?

We worked directly with a project manager, but we also could contact the development team, which consisted of two full-stack developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The final application met all our requirements. Its functionalities and UI/UX are significantly improved. Thanks to its analytics tools, we can see that more users are joining and the app’s reach is expanding.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Our cooperation was excellent. We appreciated the ability to contact developers directly if needed. It made communication that much fairer and more open. We kept in touch via Slack and received progress updates in Jira.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Appstronauts treated us like a partner rather than a client. They were personable and invested in our success.

Are there any areas for improvement?

They could have developed more detailed test scenarios. However, we ultimately received a polished and bug-free product that met our every requirement. We’re thrilled with the partnership.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO of Asap Technologies, a freight marketplace that matches carriers with shippers. With our innovative system, we deliver a tailor-made solution to supplement empty carrier loads and offer reliable service and competitive prices to businesses/private clients.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Appstronauts?

We wanted to develop a set of web and mobile apps for our carriers and shippers. 

What were your goals for this project? 

We were searching for a reliable partner that understood our need to pursue perfection in development. They were responsible for helping us outline the most valuable functionalities for our MVP before developing the apps.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor? 

My team contacted app developers in our area and shortlisted a few companies based on their provided case studies. We then met with each candidate to learn about their experience, evaluating them based on their pricing structure and approach to our project. The latter was important for us to establish a meaningful partnership. We eventually went with Appstronauts.

Describe the project in detail.

Initially, Appstronauts led a series of workshops to help us define our needs and establish the core functionality for the MVP release. They then developed all of the designs before proceeding to the first phase of development.

The team created a set of apps for shippers and carriers. Each user side had an iOS/Android version in addition to a progressive web app (PWA). They developed the apps using the cross-platform framework Ionic and integrated Braintree payment functions. To monitor all of the carriers, shippers, and orders, they also created a CRM and dashboard. 

Currently, we’re alpha testing the apps and hope to launch in Q2 2019. They’ve created a website to help promote our services. 

What was the team composition?

They’ve assigned a project manager, two full-stack developers, a project tech lead, and a QA specialist. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Right now, we’re in alpha testing for all of the apps and plan to go live by Q2 2019. Initial results have proven that we’ve created a set of good, intuitive apps. We’re currently trying to recruit additional carriers and find shippers to participate in our marketplace.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their workflow is very impressive. Appstronauts uses a Scrum methodology, preparing a backlog of tasks and Sprints. After each sprint, we have a day to demo the new version release, perform our own tests, and give direct feedback. They’ve been very helpful in quickly implementing all of our suggestions.

Overall, the contact is consistent, and they feel like a part of our team. We use Slack for daily communication and Jira to manage the project. This grants us access to the entire team and allows us to track the progress ourselves.  

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They’re agile and open-minded, making quick pivots to implement improvements. Not only do they understand the programming side of the project, but they also grasp our business needs, which helps to build great products. As such, they’re dedicated to developing apps that best align with our goals rather than just sticking to the agreed specifications. Finally, they’ve simplified our MVPs, focusing on the most important functions to be more cost-effective. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I can’t think of any at the moment.

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 several auto body shops in Poland.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Appstronauts?

As an owner, I have many things to manage such as orders, business operations, as well as employees. My business used to be totally offline several years ago; all my new customers came from the recommendations of our satisfied ones. I wanted to grow my business and gain new customers online, as well as find a way to optimize our processes and automate everything, so I decided to build a web app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed a web app for me, recommending a technology that’s cheap to maintain. The app allows me to manage almost everything and is also mobile friendly. Additionally, Appstronauts built a website that describes all the services we offer, which we’re aiming to expand in the future.

They’re building a progressive web app using used Node.js, HTML, and CSS, as well as Bootstrap for the frontend. There are many advantages to this, and it’s what they specialize in.

What is the team composition?

We started with one project manager and one developer, and then it grew to two developers.

How did you come to work with Appstronauts?

I created a post in a Facebook group and several of my friends recommended them. I picked five offers out of 50 companies. I met with three of those companies, and I really liked Appstronauts’ co-founders. I had a feeling they could create what I needed and that I would be a part of the process, which is what I wanted.

How much have you invested in them?

I spent around $14,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from October 2016–March 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Everything is working well. I’ve been able to get more done online as well as capture new customers through the website and Facebook Ads. I’m also happy that I can take care of everything in the web app, which is also available for me on my phone, allowing me to manage my business anywhere.

I had some experience with IT teams, but I wasn’t happy because they didn’t deliver. Appstronauts delivered and I’m now able to have everything automatically. Before, when my accountant was on vacation, I wasn’t able to send receipts; now, I’m able to do it myself.

How did Appstronauts perform from a project management standpoint?

They delivered on time and were in contact with us throughout the whole process, which was really nice. We mainly used Slack to communicate. They also invited me to a testing session, which was really awesome.

Initially, one of their co-founders was responsible for my project, and later on, passed it on to a dedicated project manager who handled the entire process. If there were any issues or questions, I could always ask either of the co-founders. They were always helpful and answered all of my questions.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their knowledge is impressive. They produced high-quality work and treated me as a friend, making me a part of the whole process. I was so excited for my product; whenever a certain feature was completed, they’d automatically upload it to a server, thus making it possible for me to test it.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I didn’t personally meet the people I had previously hired, but I met with the Appstronauts’ team, which was a good idea.
