What was the scope of their involvement?
They collaborated with us to build the iOS version of the app; while we created wireframes and provided the designs, they helped us to define the specifics of the functionality and developed the app to our specifications.
The primary functions facilitate vendor-user interactions. Vendors can advertise their activities with photos and promotional videos. Users then browse through the offered activities, organize them with filters, and request bookings. The app also features text/email notifications, integrated digital payment options, and user itineraries.
Currently, they’re providing ongoing support for the app, and we plan to launch other releases by the end of the year. They’ve recently released an update that allowed us to add other markets to our vendor base.
What is the team composition?
We primarily worked with a tech lead, developer, project manager, and a QA tester.
How did you come to work with Apptension?
We received numerous referrals from our colleagues, so we contacted them and detailed our project objectives. Compared to other companies, they responded quickly and diligently to give us estimates. Ultimately, we chose them based on their high-quality portfolio and previous clients.
How much have you invested with them?
We prefer to keep the project cost confidential.
What is the status of this engagement?
The iOS build lasted from March–September 2017. Now, they continue to provide app maintenance and have plans for a potential Android version, though this will depend on our end-client.
