Feedback summary: 

Operating expenses were cut ten times over and reporting process are more efficient. AVRspot’s team was highly flexible and receptive to feedback and specifically emphasized finding the correct personnel. They quickly remedied any miscommunications and provided personalized service.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CTO of Immersive Inc. We’re a VR ad company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AVRspot?

There were two things: one was to expand our backend services, and the second was to revamp our Amazon Web Services (AWS) stuff to be cheaper and more manageable. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had two engineers working for us. One was primarily focused on reorganizing our AWS services to be more container-based, versus having individualized machines for every service. The second one was helping us build new services and going through existing ones—they’re all Java-based—and integrating them into a runtime dashboard, which we put on a TV monitor in our office. This lets us see the application health statistics.

We’ve also had people working our ad software development kits (SDKs) and other small projects. Our SDK is primarily C++ and had to be integrated with iOS and Java for Android. They were responsible for writing the adapters into the actual platform.

In terms of initial requirements, it was different for everyone. The AWS guy liked abstract conversation, so I allowed him to pitch how he wanted to remodel the app, and then let him work. The other backend engineer was preferred two-way conversation, laying out the specs, and reviewing the code. He suggested some changes, like a big data processing idea using Apache Spark analytics, and we’d see some test data.

What is the team composition?

We’ve had two consistently work for us, and then we’ve had two others for between four and six months. There was also a UX designer for a month or two.

How did you come to work with AVRspot?

We had another team out of Romania, but they didn’t work out. AVRspot was recommended to us by one of our investors, and I was introduced to Andrew, the CEO.

How much have you invested with them?

They bill in a flat rate, which, for us, was $150,000—$160,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from September 2017 until August 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The AWS reorganization dropped our operating costs down by an order of magnitude. Our previous development used an older version of Kabana, a visualization and reporting tool on top of Elasticsearch, and it was a pain to get it to work on newer version of browsers. They got everything ported over and running on the new version. That’s huge for us because we use it every day, all the time.

How did AVRspot perform from a project management standpoint?

We didn’t really require much project management, but there were a couple times where I worked with the CEO if someone wasn’t performing or delivering. He was completely understanding—he’s the one who made the relationship work right. He was there whenever a problem needed to be helped. We had our weekly meetings on Zoom over video, and, after that, it was mostly email and HipChat.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s just a pleasure work with Andrew and the team. Of all the offshore people I’ve worked with, their CEO is the most attentive and accommodating person of all. His input contributes greatly to the success of the team dynamic we had.

Usually, with oversees things, I start having to work with the company, but they were very helpful in the whole selection process. We went through interviews with everybody on their team and they gave me CVs of people they have. Selecting the right people we wanted was a clean process.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There were some miscommunications here and there, but they took care of it all. It was a great working relationship. I'm definitely going to be working with them again at some point.

What is the team composition?

I work directly with their partners and have a main point of contact.

How did you come to work with them?

I found them on LinkedIn. I looked at their website and was impressed with their clients (they work with some luxury hotels and well-known brands). Even though a lot of the technology is coming out of Ukraine, they have many clients in the United States. Besides, they have a great command of the English language.

Feedback summary: 

Their team has been accommodating with everything from meeting times to budget needs. They’re genuine AR experts and it’s reflected in how well they were able to push the existing limits of AR technology to develop the app.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of United Spirit Games. We’re a micro startup with a healthcare focus. We design gaming with a Global Mission in mind, "Mobile Body Movement".

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AVRspot?

We hired them to develop a demo version of our first app, which is a game aimed at physiotherapy patients.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’re building an augmented reality mobile game called Kick Alley Soccer. It’s made for both iOS and Android. In order for it to work, they designed a unique algorithm for detecting the user’s foot via the phone camera. This was tricky because it hasn’t been done with AR before—most of the code that exists deals with the face or the hands. This is the first application of AR for foot movement, and the app not only reads the motion of the foot but also generates a soccer ball that moves toward a goal based on the speed and accuracy of the user’s movement.

They’ve completed our demo, which includes the first three levels of the game, and they’re continuing to develop the remainder of those to flesh out the full app.

What is the team composition?

Their CEO serves as our project manager day to day and we’ve also met with their Co-CEO who’s also their AR/VR expert.

How did you come to work with AVRspot?

We put out requests for developers on social media. A number of companies that contacted us couldn’t meet our needs on the AR development, but then we heard from AVRspot and they said they had the technical know-how to do it. They were very honest and we liked them right away.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $3,000–$4,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in November 2017. The first phase is completed, but we’re still working with them to finish the app.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve just started our “early adopter” phase using the demo version of the app, so we’ve got about two dozen beta testers. All of their reviews have been positive. They’ve also helped us identify some bugs, although those have been minimal. AVRspot responds immediately to that user feedback and has made the improvements promptly.

How did AVRspot perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re always available to meet with us via Skype, no matter what time it is, and they’re transparent about how much time they need to handle developments or updates. They take feedback very seriously. They’ve also been incredibly understanding about the fact that we’re a startup and our product isn’t ready to make income yet. They offered us a flexible monthly payment plan that’s been really helpful.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re visionaries. They believe in us and our product, and they view the project not just as it is, but as what it can become or what it can do for people. Not only that, their expertise with AR and VR solutions has made them uniquely skilled at finding new applications of this technology.

Feedback summary: 

While other vendors had failed to deliver, AVRspot’s creative and assertive approach helped them produce a full version in just over a month. The team conducted detail-oriented project management and offered attentive customer service to ensure clear, accurate, and convenient communication. 

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder of United Spirit Games, a consortium of innovative concepts for sports entertainment attractions and augmented reality (AR) mobile gaming. I also co-created KICK ALLEY Soccer, a AR mobile game app that realized my vision of connecting the fun of soccer with the exercise needs of the physiotherapy world.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire AVRspot?

We reached out to AVRspot for algorithm experts and programmers who specialized in the AR field to help us develop KICK ALLEY.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to create a ground-breaking AR game in which the player moves his or her own foot to kick the soccer ball on a mobile device.  

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Several developers preceding AVRspot had failed to deliver what they promised, namely in-depth knowledge and AR skills, so despite having a prototype on GooglePlay, the project remained incomplete. AVRspot offered experience in advanced computer vision project creation and assured us that the game could be completed within reasonable cost and time frames. 

Describe the project in detail.

The project scope included a full range of development services, including design, development, and implementation of UI/UX elements, controls, and feedback-based updates; game design; GameSparks integration; testing, debugging, and assembly; pre-release for iOS and Android platforms using TestFlight and .apk; and ongoing support and updates. 

What was the team composition?

The team initially included two software engineers and one QA engineer. After completing the MVP, the team downsized to one software engineer and one part-time QA.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The object of the game is to kick a soccer ball straight down the alley and earn points by scoring goals into nets of various sizes. Because the highlight is that players use their own feet, the most difficult part of the project was developing accurate foot recognition and tracking. We had spent years searching for experts in "foot-detection” who were capable of coding the revolutionary algorithms necessary for full “foot kick” interaction; AVRspot created the first version in just one and a half months! 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Team meetings, conducted via Skype video or audio calls, were scheduled at our convenience and in our time zone, and communication flowed seamlessly through all channels. Negotiations and meetings were clear and transparent; AVRspot took detailed minutes and repeated information back to us in order to confirm details. 

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They displayed both youthful exuberance and ambition for their work and absolute confidence and certainty that they could deliver results—which they could.

AVRspot’s creative work was a byproduct of their responsiveness and solutions-focused approach. Their efficiency and effective communication fostered professional goodwill and is likely to generate opportunities for future engagement.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder and CEO of an educational website where people can contribute instructional video content.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AVRspot?

I was interested in getting a volumetrics-driven app out there using 4D holograms. I needed help with the augmented reality (AR) part of the app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They worked on a personal trainer app. The end user is able to walk into a gym, scan the room for any kind of equipment, and the app detects the equipment. Then, it suggests all the exercises that you can do with that specific equipment.

Once the user selects the exercise, a realistic hologram of a personal trainer doing the exercise is displayed. They built the iOS app using Unity and Google Vision.

What is the team composition?

I was in contact with three people from the firm, but mostly the project manager. He would take my descriptions and communicate with the development team separately.

How did you come to work with AVRspot?

They reached out to me at the right time. I had in my mind that I needed something like this done and within a week or two, they reached out with a portfolio. I looked at it and the videos were on par with what I wanted. The way they marketed their service was good because I've received different requests from different companies, but they never stuck with me like AVRspot.

How much have you invested with them?

I invested less than $8,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from October 2017— February 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They were cost effective and did a good job of delivering the requirements on time. It felt like they were in-house instead of just an outsourced company.

How did AVRspot perform from a project management standpoint?

We mostly used email, but connected initially over Skype. As far as making deadlines, they were pretty good about it. We set the expectation and they delivered. When a bug needed to be fixed, they added more resources to the project and fixed it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They came up with suggestions of their own. Instead of just doing what was asked, they brought other suggestions to the project.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of any room for improvement.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

No. I don’t have advice at this time.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of Polygon CGI. We specialize in 3D computer-generated images and mobile interactive 3D.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AVRspot?

We needed help with mobile application development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

To date, we’ve collaborated on two mobile-based projects for iOS and Android; both were interactive 3D. For the car configurator project, they supplemented development for 3D content. The team helped with Google Analytics and Firebase’s new mobile-friendly version.

The second project involved augmented reality and VR for a nightclub environment. They created a virtual character for first- and third-person simulations. The VR also include multi-player options. Functionalities included audio streams and a live video plug-in, which allowed users to play their iPhone content within the virtual nightclub.

What is the team composition?

The team includes two resources; one was a dedicated developer.

How did you come to work with AVRspot?

They contacted me. Although I wasn’t initially interested, their international location made me think they’d be less expensive than domestic firms. The team was open to a “pay as you go” arrangement.

How much have you invested in them?

They charge hourly rates, which we negotiate. We’ve spent under £10,000 ($14,185 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They increased my capacity to deliver results while charging me less than most British firms. AVRspot works well as an ad hoc partner. They’re always accessible, which distinguishes them from other firms I’ve engaged.

How did AVRspot perform from a project management standpoint?

They make remote development convenient. There’s no need for in-house resources, especially considering our ongoing relationship. We Skype when necessary; they speak English well.

What did you find most impressive about them?
