ENDURANCE HORSE RIDING APPLICATION

EIEV is an endurance horse riding application that allows users to see timing data of upcoming/live/past races held in Emirates International Endurance Village in Al Wathba, Abu Dhabi.

We at Celadon covered the project from start to end: UX/UI, prototyping, full cycle of development, publishing and support and maintenance.

The requirement was to create an application that would process and represent the data in real time in a user-friendly and customizable way. Also, there were specific ways of data transferring, determined by the client’s possibilities, and the project should have been built around it.

The main challenge was a tight time restraint of the project due to the important event coming. So, the project should have been done and released in 4 months, including design, development and testing phases - and 4 months is way less than an average estimation for such project scope.

We solved the challenge by picking the right technology, aka React...

Feedback summary: 

The first version of the app received positive feedback from users, which speaks to Celadon’s expertise. They are straightforward, efficient, and easy to work with. However, they could offer more training on app maintenance.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I work for a travel agency that offers a wide range of tours and holiday packages. We also help customers acquire permits and visas.

Our goal was to increase client engagement and loyalty by simplifying their experience for visa application. We wanted to offer a smooth UX that required minimal effort. We also wanted to upsell our tour booking services.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were a referral.

Describe the project in detail.

Celadon built an app and integrated several third-party APIs from our partner networks. They also added an AI smart offer feature, which displays potentially interesting tours based on in-app user behavior and history. They also made sure to secure user data and stored documents.

The Celadon team continues to implement new features. For example, we realized that we needed to develop an advanced application management interface. We also had to add some integration to our existing management software.

Initially, I met a manager from Celadon who helped me compose the project brief. When the project started, Alexei (Co-founder, Celadon) became our main contact. We’ve also worked with two frontend and two backend developers from their team.

Unfortunately, Celadon does not offer training for the management and maintenance of the app.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The resulting web app’s ease of use, along with the problems it eliminated, makes it an essential tool for the business. Celadon addressed bugs very promptly and handled change requests with impressive flexibility. They’re a responsive team and will likely handle future feature additions to the product.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the managing director of StalTorm, a company that specializes in supplying steel parts for construction.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Celadon?

We were using a couple of standard software tools but had trouble synchronizing them. As a result, a lot of our work was being done manually through phone calls and data was being lost in the process of communicating between the facility and our management office. I was trying to solve this by somehow automating the process. At the same time, I wanted to simplify it so that we could avoid these problems kinds of problems altogether.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Celadon developed a web platform that I can administrate. It allows me to create users for managers and assign responsibilities for orders. We can track the amount materials we’re producing, how much is being ordered, and how managers are supplying the facility.

I’m not a specialist in software development, so they gave me a project description and provided designs for me to approve. I’ve been testing the delivered software, and after requesting a couple of changes, we’ve started to use it.

What is the team composition?

There were multiple developers involved but I’ve mainly interacted with their manager, who’s also a Russian speaker, making the collaboration quite comfortable and smooth.

How did you come to work with Celadon?

A friend recommended them. They understood our business and the problem we were facing.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost of their work has been around $21,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Celadon in the fall of 2017 and the app was completed by January 2018. We’ll probably work on developing additional functionalities in the future.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The product is easy to use and it’s easy to teach our workers to use it. We’ve faced very few problems, and they’re fixed immediately by Celadon.

How did Celadon perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated through phone calls and messenger tools, and they always responded immediately. I changed some requirements during development and thought that it could become a problem, but they were very flexible and responsive. They quickly understood what I wanted to change and delivered per my request.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I found it quite easy to collaborate and communicate with them. I never felt that my requirements were too complex nor that the work was overpriced at any point. There was a level of trust between us during this engagement. I doubted whether I needed custom software in the beginning, but I’m now convinced that the tool they built is really useful.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They ask for prepayment for their work, which I understand they do for securing themselves, but trusting clients more could help them. However, after we started working together and I saw the first results of their work, I knew I didn’t have to worry. We ended up giving just a small payment in advance and then paid them based on the delivered work.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Celadon was offering us a fixed-price, but they suggested going with a time-and-materials model, which made us both more relaxed during the work. I didn’t trust this model very much at first, but it proved to be quite convenient.
