Social Networking App for the Professional Photography Industry

"If you decide to organize a photoshoot, where do you find models and stylists?" — with this in mind, William Upshaw, a Software Solutions Architect and amateur photographer from the US, came up with an idea to create a mobile network for the professional photography industry. The idea turned into a mobile startup Pro Photo Shoot.

The customer needed to create an Android version of Pro Photo Shoot — a networking app like a Facebook but only for photographers, models, MUAs, and stylists.

To get the customer on board, we completed a test task for Android — developed three screens for a future app. William was so impressed by our work that he commissioned Azoft to develop the Android app.

The initial requirements for the future app:

  • to port iOS version of the app on Android
  • to make a pixel-perfect UI for Android
  • to make integration of the Android app with the existing Parse-based backend

Order Management System for Gulf Oil Marine

The client company distributes marine lubricant products and services for the Shipping Industry worldwide. While Gulf Oil Marine was expanding its global presence and operations, all workflow and communications with clients, partners, suppliers, logistics agents and resellers continued to be organized via plain email, which rapidly became very inefficient, time-consuming and led to numerous faults in customer care. Most importantly, there were no statistics collection and reporting tools, which made business analysis and planning activities impossible.

We developed a custom order management system that serves as a reliable tool for supporting Gulf’s workflow and operations and provided a powerful tool for collecting statistical data and its presentation in a clear set of reports.

Online Insurance System for Effective Coverage

Our development team has created an online insurance system for an insurance agency based in the USA. The agency specializes in insurance for property owners listing their units for rent and helps them manage renter's insurance requirements.

The major challenge was the complex scheme of insurance premium calculation accounted for the fact that insurance industry in the US is regulated on a state level, which as the result creates a situation where rates and coverage options differ from state to state. This demanded an unprecedented level of flexibility from the system which not only must have allowed the options change, but the formulas and order of operations for calculating the premiums change as well.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Azoft was commended for meeting all their deadlines and for their great communication. 

BACKGROUND

We are running a startup in Moscow that helps to measure & develop negotiation capability. Our project is based on mixing online and offline tools. In our target audience, there are companies and individuals who run commercial negotiations in different businesses (FMCG, B2B, pharmacy, banking etc). 

I'm the founder and owner of the company. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

The problem of development of soft skills (sales, negotiation, leadership etc) can't be effectively solved only by online or offline learning. Online is less effective and offline is more expensive. Almost everybody is focused on getting knowledge, but not on how to train and secure the skill. Companies can't manage negotiation capability development without measuring it. So we need to blend them to make a cost-effective tool. 

The prices for negotiation training in Russia are:  low quality-10 KRub/person; middle quality-30 KRub/person; high quality-350 KRub/person. Even top-training companies don't support effective follow-up so they can't help to build and manage the skills. People and companies invest in learning but get  unpredictable and unmeasurable results.

We blend learning tools, measure and guarantee the result of negotiation capability development. The average price is 75 KRub/person. So (for example) if your KAM is responsible for 30 Mln.Rub annual budget and he improves investement on 10% after negotiation capability development, ROI of the training exceeds 4000%.  

 

SOLUTION

We needed to find a provider to create software for negotiation capability measurement and training the skills. I've tendered 10 companies and decided to work with Azoft. Their price was a little above the market, but they can dive deeper than others in the business. Their proposed solutions looked more qualitative. They are responsible for analytics, design, development, testing, and support. I've work with Azoft for about  2 years. During the project, they showed themselves as a reliable and flexible business partners.  

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any results of the project?

Thanks to Azoft, we reduce the cost of the 2nd iteration of the project by 15%. Azoft always does their high-quality work on time and in-line with the budget. 

How did Azoft perform from a project management standpoint?

All stages of the project were completed at the right time. We have good communication and flexible approach that helps to move faster and to find additional value.

What distinguishes Azoft from other providers?

I feel I can trust Azoft much more than others. It’s very important when you trying to work in a SCRUM way. And they produce software with a good quality and speed. And they can dive deeper in my business demand.

Is there anything Azoft could have improved or done differently?

Continuous improvement is a right thing for everybody. But from my point of view they are good enough.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The app now supports over 20,000 users, including major entities like World Learning and the United Nations. Although the web resource experienced delays due to re-engineering, Azoft delivered both mobile versions with impeccable timing and technical precision.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Unleesh is a premiere international education app, providing onboarding, training, and communication to international education, corporate, and social entrepreneur companies. Our platform is designed for worldwide use; we have users, clients, and partners in the United States, South America, Europe, Russia, and Africa.

I serve as co-founder of this platform and am responsible for entire product lifecycle, including the creation of the platform for iOS, Android, and the web. I’m also responsible for all digital marketing efforts. I develop campaigns supporting the entire product line, including marketing and content strategy across team-management platforms. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Azoft?

When I joined the company, my job was to revamp our entire product. When I helped launch Unleesh in October 2014, we had a working prototype but needed to rebuild the entire app for iOS, Android, and the web. We chose Azoft as our development team for this ambitious project. The key was to support thousands of people using our services across numerous continents on different platforms seamlessly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We were creating a workforce development and training app available on iOS, Android, and the web. The app provides training in bite-sized chunks to the workforce to upscale through video, text, audio, and images. It collects information based on the person taking the training and allows users to engage with experiential education to be able to learn from each other. It has a social aspect to help people learn together as a group. Users can communicate with each other through events, private messaging, and forums.

I had another designer working on the project; when Azoft came on, they did some of their own designs to match those designs. I wrote the project requirements, and they provided project managers and developers, and they did the QA as well.

How did you come to work with Azoft?

They were recommended to our company by someone our co-founder knew. Because he is not as technical, I was asked to evaluate Azoft to see if they were the right partner based on cost and performance. I determined that they were a good fit.

What is the status of this engagement?

We launched a new iOS and Android version in March of 2015 and a brand new web platform in the summer of 2015. The partnership is still ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Azoft performed well, and our iOS and Android platforms arrived on time but slightly over budget. The web version had some delays, but obstacles were clearly communicated, and the budget was not affected.

We have 20,000 workforce learners that have used our app. We’ve worked with organizations such as World Learning and the United Nations, who used our app when they brought 1,000 people from all over for their last youth summit in January. We are training teachers in Liberia because of their education crisis there. They’ve told us that “Unleesh enables us to continuously share new content with school capacity leads while they are out in the field. With Unleesh, these schools are able to learn new approaches and strategies, take action in their school communities, submit actions towards building a digital portfolio of work, and exchange ideas with their peers. It creates a bridge across geography for powerful, continuous learning and collaboration.”

How did Azoft perform from a project management standpoint?

What set them apart for me was they could provide iOS, Android, and web development, as well as QA and project management. They were flexible with my requirements and really worked as a partner in creating a world-class platform.

They do everything from beginning to end through project managers who I can talk to directly. I’ve worked with different offshore firms, and Azoft has a better grasp of the English language than most Americans I know. They’re really detailed and responsive. They’ve been a great partner since we don’t have our own in-house developers. They feel like they are in-house because they’re always responsive and know what’s going on with our app.

Are there any areas Azoft could improve?

Their strength was in mobile applications. The web application was slower to develop, but that could have been because we were trying to get it done quickly. We wanted to do mobile first, so on the web development side, we were re-engineering the mobile apps for the web, which wasn’t as smooth of a process.
