Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?
The app has between 20,000 and 30,000 downloads. It’s not a very large number, but we are selling this to a very specific range of customers. At the moment, we have about 100,000 cars on the road with this equipment, so it’s a very good number. The app has generally positive reviews in its app stores and has been featured in large European auto shows for over two years. The app has fully met our expectations. It has an exceptional user interface and user experience thanks to Bamboo Group’s expertise in cross-platform programming.
The popularity that the app has among Škoda customers resulted in a major update and renewal of this project for the second generation of connectivity which was introduced in late 2016.
How did Bamboo Group perform from a project management standpoint?
They were a little behind schedule at first, but that has improved. They are basically on time, which is the reason we choose to continue our collaboration with them.
What did you find most impressive about Bamboo Group?
They’re very proactive and even did some development work which wasn’t in the requirements. They integrated a few functions that they thought were more valuable and cool to have. We were very happy with this because their suggestions always improved the product.
They’re located quite far away from us, but they fully managed to lead the development in cooperation with us from a distance, without any major issues.
Are there any areas Bamboo Group could improve?
There’s a bit of a language barrier. Their developer didn’t speak English, so we did have some struggles. It wasn’t serious, but it was a disadvantage. They initially had a lack of expertise in the automotive industry, but that isn’t an issue anymore.
