Fonix reported that a number of their clients misunderstood the primary functionality (i.e. reporting generation feature) due to the unappreciated UI/UX design, which was not user-friendly.

 

Axon provided a comprehensive analysis of key functionalities and main use cases, and as a result, suggested a

completely new UI and UX design which was prepared by Axon`s UI/UX professional teams.

The final concept was agreed upon and delivered to Fonix for further implementation:

  • ‍Mobile and web-based versions 

  • Designed using best practices of User Experience 

  • Followed User Interface guides

 

Results:

  • Less confusion due to UI/UX problems

  • End-users receive clear visibility regarding the key functionalities

Flashcards: Educational start-up

Learning with flash-cards is a tactile and interactive experience that involves many different senses. The effectiveness of learning with paper flash cards has been verified by use, and there are a host of developers currently trying to build electronic flash cards.

 

The challenge was for the design to be: 

  • Realistic and

accessible 
  • Highly customizable, 

  • The best-in-class flash card simulator for iOS

  •

    • Downloading the free Flashcards app so that people can start on-boarding

    • Onboard instructions that are naturally made in the form of flashcards

    • After studying them, people can create personal flashcards

    • No user registration required

    • No limits on flashcards amount

    • Text, photo, and audio can be placed at any of the flash card’s side, in any combination, of any language

     

    Results:

    • Easy to use and intuitively understood user interface

    • Ability to create own perfectly looking flash cards using   templates

    • A simple way to learn and control the progress of  studying

     

    Additional functionality was also required for creating, learning with flashcards and tracking the progress. Implementation of toggling Parental Gates allowed Axon to design a single app for both kids and students. It will reduce the costs of the app updates for future development.

    KYB: Mobile Shock Absorber Tester. Image

    KYB: Mobile Shock Absorber Tester.

    Established in 1919, KYB is currently the world’s largest supplier of shock absorbers and struts for auto manufacturers in the aftermarket.

    KYB’s team decided to research the possibilities associated with diagnosing the state of a car’s suspension by utilizing a smartphone with a built-in gyroscope and accelerometer. The idea is to allow the car owner to diagnose the car’s suspension using his own smartphone and to

    understand whether visiting the service station is needed. To accomplish this Axon had to: 
    • Research and developed a proof of concept for this idea.

    • Develop a scalable solution utilizing machine learning technology and neural networking.

    • Develop a history of measurements that can be accumulated to monitor regress and to analyze car “health” and driving style.

    • Utilize geolocation, to find recommended spare parts Dealers to buy new shock-absorbers as well as pre-order shock-absorbers.

    • Utilize geolocation, by finding the recommended car service stations to replace absorbers by appointment.

    • Digitized a comprehensive product catalog

    • Provide driver’s support utilizing CRM systems

    Axon successfully developed a working prototype of a mobile application for KYB that allows users to diagnose a car’s suspension using a smartphone. The prototype demonstrated the availability and simplicity of such an approach.

    • Nearby events, property rentals and things to buy using geolocation

    • helps to protect students from fraud and theft.

    Feedback summary: 

    Axon’s technical proficiency ensured a good quality MVP with solid functionality. They maintained good contact throughout the process, managing sprints in Jira. They outperform stateside competitors, while offering lower rates.  

    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 founder of goMkt. We are a sustainability startup. We help food businesses with surplus inventory identify buyers, and drive foot traffic to those buyers’ locations.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Axon Development Group?

    We wanted to build an app that supported our goal to reduce food waste and support small business in New York.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    They offer a host of design and software services. They developed my app using React Native—a cross-platform hybrid network—instead of developing iOS and Android apps separately, which saved me a lot of money. They also developed a little site for me, and they've done a bit of UX and design work on the app, in addition to the software development.

    What is the team composition?

    We mainly work with Yuriy [CEO, Axon Development Group], and also Dimitri [Director of Business Development, Axon Development Group].

    How did you come to work with Axon Development Group?

    We were using a freelancer platform, but we were only getting average work from the providers we found there. When we wanted to change, I reached out to a friend at Google, who recommended Axon.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We started working together somewhere in 2017, either in late summer or early fall. They’ve built an MVP, but we’re still tweaking things and building a roadmap. The project is ongoing as we evaluate additions to the product.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    We recently finished the MVP, so we will have more information once we do more marketing. Axon did a fantastic job building the app. They’re very technically proficient, and we haven’t experienced any lags or poor quality. Yuriy and Dimitri are very good teammates, with a lot of good recommendations for structure, UX, testing, and different methodologies. They’re very good at consultation and making sure I’ve done things properly.

    The next steps are on our side, but we’re very satisfied with their work to date. If I had gone with a company elsewhere, I would have paid a lot more for an inferior product. These guys are good, and we’re really satisfied.

    How did Axon Development Group perform from a project management standpoint?

    They perform very well. We did all of our project management within Jira, and they invited me to be a part of all the sprints. I have some familiarity with the process, but they did better than any other development shop I’ve used. They’re very good about implementing my recommendations, and the whole process has been pretty seamless.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    They’re very quick to address bugs, and we always had good contact and communication with them. I’ve only worked with two other development shops, but they out-performed both of them. I’m very satisfied with their work. They continue to provide support, their prices are reasonable, and I’m happy with them.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    I don’t have any criticisms for them. Any software development project has bumps in the road, but they’ve done a fantastic job catering to whatever we asked them to do.

    Feedback summary: 

    Despite their unfamiliarity with the use cases presented to them, Axon took the time to understand and develop a solution that has already significantly improved efficiency levels for case workers throughout the globe. As their team continues t grow, they will be on-boarded for future projects.

    A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

    BACKGROUND

    Introduce your business and what you do there.

    Our organization was initially established as a financial/management consulting practice, but over the years has evolved into a technology/solution advisory role. Over the last number of years, I have worked on a solution designed for the government sector to help their agencies and caseworkers identify citizens most in need of their services. The solution helps users visualize many forms of data in a single dynamic map-based view and highlights clients that are in urgent need of government services and resources.

    The solution is branded Social View and has broad-based applications across many health and human services agencies in government. While it is offered on a single enterprise-level platform, Social View can be configured to meet any agency's specific needs and use case.

    I’m one of the principles of the firm.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Axon Development Group?

    The challenge was essentially to replace antiquated systems. For the most part, state and local governments have fairly decent resources available to them, but allocating those resources to specific projects isn’t always the most streamlined process. For a lot of these organizations that have billions of dollars in technology budgets, they are still working with antiquated systems as mundane and fundamental as Excel spreadsheets. The challenge, that we then addressed with Axon Development Group, was to get state and local governments to transition into modern day technologies, systems, and methodologies.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    The focal point of the project where I saw a significant need in the government sector was the ability to visualize data. We approached Axon to help us to develop a solution in which state and local governments could visualize data on a map-based solution custom to various use cases.

    For example, one of the use cases we worked on with Axon was for the government of Colombia. In Colombia, a large sector of their population currently lives in poverty. The government wanted to find a better and more efficient way to deploy services to that segment of the population. Unfortunately, that category of the population makes up almost 80% of the entire country, located in areas with poor service and little infrastructure. This makes it very difficult to not only gather information about the segment of the population, but also to disseminate information back and bring services and resources to those most in need.

    What Axon did for us was develop a tool which has been branded The Social View. The tool is a map-based solution that takes data and visualizes it on a map-based view. The application itself has many different use cases. In the case of Colombia, the government is using the tool to determine the different factors that contribute to a person falling into the poverty level. The government uses the tool developed by Axon to geographically identify where the largest segment of their population may be susceptible to those risk factors, and then match that up with resources or infrastructure that can be deployed to that sector.

    We've used the application for other use cases, such as for the Tampa Bay housing authority, which is an agency that provides low income housing to its population. Similar to the situation in Colombia, there are a number of risk factors that contribute to a person or family needing resources for shelter or assistance in finding a place to live. The Social View app helps to identify where these people are within the Tampa Bay population and then disseminate the appropriate resources to those people.

    How did you come to work with Axon Development Group?

    I was introduced to Axon Development Group through a family friend a number of years ago. This individual was someone whose opinion I respected.

    I'm sure there are other technology providers in the marketplace other than Axon, but I have yet to see a provider that is quite so nimble, flexible, and enterprise-like. To me, their team offers the best of both worlds. The solution they developed can be modified and applied in a number of different use cases. It was also very cost effective which is another concern when you're dealing with state and local governments.

    How much have you invested with them?

    We've spent about a half million dollars.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We began working with Axon in May of 2015. The project was completed in December 2015. We are still working with them on future projects.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    Sister agencies within some of the state and local governments are seeking similar solutions, which I think speaks to the success we’ve had working with Axon.

    Before developing The Social View, case workers were allocating 400 man hours every month, trying to gather data and make sense of it whereas now it’s almost instantaneous based on the system, creating an entirely new level of efficiency that didn’t exist before. Those same case workers now can literally spend more time on their case files and with their clients.

    How did Axon Development Group perform from a project management standpoint?

    They allocate a fair amount of resources to their projects. In addition to their team of engineers, they also have a dedicated team of business and systems analysts. They bring in one or two people depending on the number of users that will assist. They do a lot of hand-holding in the training of the application to get their user base up the learning curve fairly quickly. Quick and broad-based adoption of technology is one of the primary keys to a successful deployment and Axon dedicates lots of resources on the frontend implementation.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    I was most impressed by their ability to understand use cases that they are not familiar with. Each use case we’ve worked on with Axon has its own configuration, its own sensitivities, and its own needs, and Axon has done a really good job of taking the time to understand how the end user would best be able to take advantage of the application. Unlike other technology companies that simply see a challenge and develop a solution around it, Axon has taken a much more personal approach to our projects which I think has also translated into a high level of appreciation from the end user’s perspective.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    As Axon’s team grows, I think it would be helpful for them to have a more prominent presence locally. What we have appreciated about working with them is the personal approach and the continued dialogue. As their company grows and they are able to allocate more resources, I think it would pay off for them to have more of a local presence.

    A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

    BACKGROUND

    Introduce your business and what you do there.

    HAPI Networks is a small startup in San Jose, California. We connect users looking for places to park with other users who want to rent out their personal parking spaces. I am the VP of marketing and I also assist in development processes.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Axon Development Group?

    We needed a team of skilled backend software developers to architect and design the core functionalities of our service. We needed people to design the micro services, set up the databases, and run us through all the challenges of our project. Axon did all of the coding work and helped us to learn different software, such as JIRA.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    We managed the project using JIRA, which is a tool that teams use to manage deliverables. We would create JIRA tickets that represented various sprints of the project that Axon would then work on. They used Java Spring in creating the backend of our services while our team created the frontend of the applications.

    The app is built for both Android and iOS.

    How did you come to work with Axon Development Group?

    We've worked with a few other development teams in various countries before working with Axon. The other teams didn't work out as we expected. For one reason or the other, we ended up parting ways with them. We then went to Upwork to find and send requests to other firms, which is where we found Axon. Axon responded to our request and we interviewed them on Skype. We were really impressed with their knowledgeability which is the reason we hired them. They ended up worked out a lot better than all of the other teams did.

    How much have you invested with Axon Development Group?

    We were in the range of about $10,000 to $30,000.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We began working with Axon in the beginning of June 2017. We're not working with them currently because we ran out of funds. We plan to continue to work with Axon in the near future when we receive funding.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

    We didn't have any true success stories with our app because we never launched it. We viewed the success with the Axon team in the way they delivered what they said they were going to deliver. They did a really good job in creating reasonable tasks and timelines, and then executing on those timelines.

    How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

    The entire project was a collaborative process. We would regularly call them for advice on the system and how we could make it better. They always had a lot of great input. They also helped us learning these new technologies, like JIRA, which is what we used for project management. We didn't know anything about JIRA or how to navigate that service. Axon helped us to be more efficient in creating tasks and executing them.

    What did you find most impressive about Axon Development Group?

    They went above and beyond with everything. They were really flexible with their hours. They worked according to our schedule, even though we were ten hours behind them. They always did exactly what they said they were going to do. They were a really great team. I have nothing negative to say about Axon.

    Are there any areas Axon Development Group could improve?

    I don't have any real criticisms for the Axon team. It was a smooth experience from start to finish. They did a really good job.
