Founded in 2016, SkyWatch.AI is creating innovative, easy-to-use tools that empower drone operators to fly safely, manage their flights seamlessly, and make sure they are insured at a reasonable price.
SkyWatch.AI provides an ingenious, holistic solution for safety, compliance and insurance needs for the drone industry, heavily based on drone data telemetry analytics. The platform leverages the fact that drones are connected IoT platforms by nature to utilize a variety of data sources and analyze drone flight risks. For example, DJI drones, have 30 different sensors, hyper-local weather, 3-D airspace, ground hazards and proprietary crowd density prediction. Using those, SkyWatch not only assesses the risks but can predict and prevent potential failures before they occur.
SkyWatch clients live for tech. So, when Co-Founder & CEO Tomer Kashi was looking for a partner to help develop the mobile app for their drone insurance solution, they knew the company needed someone at the cutting-edge of technology. They needed a partner that had developers, designers and UI/UX pros who could take the SkyWatch vision and existing risk analytics platform and translate it to an elegant, user friendly mobile App. Their search led them to Quickode by Commit.
Commit’s team of top pros analyzed, designed and developed the app screens, integrating code developed by SkyWatch and embedding it so users can easily select and purchase insurance for a specific area, location and time frame on their phone. The team cared about the project’s success all the way through, building a set of features including post flight data, summary and route gathered during the use of the drone.
The app was integrated using technologies compatible to both IOS and Android environments including React Native.
By leveraging Commit’s expertise Skywatch was able to avoid pitfalls, resulting in an efficient build that shortened the time to market and, best of all, was well-received by SkyWatch and their customers.
Splitit is the only buy-now-pay-later plan empowering consumers to use the available credit on their existing credit cards to turn purchases into smaller payments over time as they continue to earn rewards points, cash-back or other benefits from their credit cards. For merchants, having this option for consumers can translate into increased conversion rates, higher average order values and improved satisfaction.
Splitit needed to modernize and upgrade its application and cloud platform. The previous version was built as a monolithic, traditional application with manual deployment processes. A new, more robust service was required to handle millions of mission-critical transactions daily and provide zero downtime.
As a SaaS partner, Commit was able to come in with the know-how to build a dynamic solution that shortened upgrade time while maintaining compliance at every turn.
Commit had the proficiency needed in Project Management to keep the team informed, aligned and consistently moving forward. They could tap into engineering resources during various project sprints while keeping a keen eye on the budget. Splitit found it could work with the same engineers on and off throughout the project, which improved communication, development flow and product quality.
Commit provided Splitit with architects and cloud experts to design and deploy a modernized, secured, and optimized service on a cloud-based platform.
Becoming a critical extension of the core team, Commit helped deliver a high-quality payment solution to meet the needs of merchants and consumers. Commit’s flexible cloud business model allowed team members to jump on and off the project with no disruption to workflow, saving Splitit time and money without sacrificing quality. The communication at every level was clear, allowing all teams to stay up to date with project challenges and milestones. Commit provided experienced multidisciplinary experts and as a result, the project was often ahead of schedule.

Please describe your company and your position there.
I am the CEO of Retrack Data Solutions
For what projects/services did your company hire Commit?
I partnered with Commit to develop an app that would help mall managers and tenants compete with online commerce. I had the concept and base design for the MallUP app, and I wanted it to revolutionize the consumer shopping experience. It was long overdue to help dying brick and mortar retail malls reinvent themselves to stay relevant.
The reality is that retail malls cannot compete with online stores because they simply do not generate sufficient sales during their limited operating hours to justify the excessive costs of rental space. These stores must be available to consumers 24 hours per day, 7 days per week without sacrificing a personalized experience.
Commit created an app to digitize malls making their direct marketing to consumers more effective and allowing the malls to consistently "be open" to compete with online competitors. In addition, the SaaS platform Commit created allowed for faster availability to items purchased for both pick up or delivery.
What were your goals for this project?
Our primary goal was to create an easy to use, powerful consumer facing app incorporating the needs of mall owners and retail tenants by utilizing artificial intelligence and big data technologies. The sophisticated tool allowed for real-time data flow and accessibility to third party information from a wide range of companies making them more equipped to meet the needs of the customer at the right time with the right message.
How did you select Commit?
We interviewed several firms in the United States and Israel. We wanted a firm that had a wide range of skill set under a single roof. We did not want to rely on multiple firms or attempt to hire and retain technical staff when we knew they were not needed at every stage of development
Describe the project in detail.
We started with a basic concept and workflow process. Commit designed and programmed every aspect of the app. They managed and delivered each component we requested timely and was open to changes and or new concepts we added throughout the process. Commit provided the necessary project management to stay on schedule and budget, the technical staff to develop the end-to-end solution and communicated effectively at every stage of the process.
What was the team composition?
We dealt directly with Arik Feingold, the CEO of Commit, who took a personal interest in making sure our project was a success. The team consisted of a wide range of people and competencies. The development project was managed by Noga Hendler, who has been fantastic to work with directly and in managing the Commit team. We required a range of aptitudes to accomplish programming, communication, third-party integration, and mobile technologies
Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?
Commit delivered a revolutionary app that was and remains far ahead of anything in the marketplace. The Covid-19 pandemic closed many shopping malls and severely impacted the industry and it forced us to alter our marketing strategy and timeline, but the product was released in under 12 months and has drawn positive feedback from industry experts.
How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?
Commit has the development process down to a science. They have such a broad range of high-level technical skill sets under one roof and an effective way of communicating every step of the way. There were no gaps with information sharing – technical or otherwise – throughout each cycle of the project.
Are there any areas for improvement?
None. Well, shorter flights between United States and Israel.
"In general, their work was great — the quality of the code they delivered was very high."

Commit’s expertise played an instrumental role in the project’s completion. Despite it being a collaboration between multiple companies, the team stood out by consistently providing high-quality code that was error-free. Their good communication skills allowed for fruitful collaboration.
A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.
Introduce your business and what you do there.
I was the former Senior Director, multichannel video programming distributor (MVPD) R&D, Advertising Management Systems of a broadcast media company. In that role, I managed a very large team that Commit was part of.
What challenge were you trying to address with Commit?
Our relationship with Commit started many years before this project. The scope of our first engagement was a proof of concept for the modernization of one of the back-office systems that is used in the media — the particular system was responsible for the traffic operations within the cable facility, wherein traffic means to place advertising content within the programming.
What was the scope of their involvement?
Initially, what Commit did was they took style guides from our graphic designers and implemented them in the UI/UX, so a great deal of the work was geared towards the UX. That project was completed and it went on the shelf for a couple of years, until our company acquired a software company and we made the decision to go forward with the modernization effort on a larger scale.
For this project, Commit worked primarily on the frontend and then put together requirements for the backend work. There were some cases where they did the backend work, but most of the time, our internal team worked on the backend depending on where exactly within the system the development was needed. Aside from the actual code, the team also worked on the design and system architecture according to the requirements of our internal team.
There were four companies involved with the development of the overall system because it was a very complicated project — we started with about 3 million lines of source code, and when we finished the project, we had 5 million lines.
What is the team composition?
My main interaction with CommIT was through Arik (President). My daily interaction was with the team leads, with escalations on an as-needed basis by the individual contributors. We used a modified Agile process, which Commit embraced. This enabled us to identify issues, as well as monitor ongoing process.
How did you come to work with Commit?
Arik was the former general manager for the company we acquired, so he was very familiar with it and remained in contact with the employees. We began the conversations regarding the project with him, and from there, it was an evolutionary process.
What is the status of this engagement?
The project lasted from January 2016—January 2019.
What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
In general, their work was great — the quality of the code they delivered was very high, more so than any other contract firm that I've engaged with over the last two decades. Whenever we found a problem in the QA or customer testing phase, it was never actually a problem with Commit’s code; given the size and scope of the entire project, there were a lot of interfaces with code from other vendors.
How did Commit perform from a project management standpoint?
On a day-to-day basis, they were always very good with communication and execution; they were very approachable and responsive in helping to troubleshoot any problems that arose. The clock was always our enemy because they finished their days when we were just starting ours — there are always obstacles when you've got a global project like that but they worked very well to take those risks out of the project so that they wouldn’t be an impediment.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Their biggest strength was their incredible ability to translate functional requirements provided by the product management team, which they translated into design, system architecture, as well as the actual code.
Are there any areas they could improve?
I never like to say that anybody is perfect because that puts my whole objectivity at risk, but their mistakes were very few and far between. There were times where they had very strong opinions — the team would go to the product management team to discuss whether or not they understood the requirements. That type of conversation can be a challenge, but it was never a confrontation with them and they were able to manage those types of blockages no matter the difficulty.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
My advice is to very clearly define the scope and their responsibilities, and deliver absolutely as much detail in terms of the project requirements in advance — that allows the Commit team to look at it holistically and envision what the end state is to avoid a piecemeal process.
