What was the scope of their involvement?
They did everything from concept to execution. We gave them a general idea of what we were looking for and they designed the wireframes. We wanted to choose the path of least resistance towards our MVP, so they helped us tell which features would be more complex and which features would be easier to develop. They also helped us stay within our budget, while accomplishing everything we wanted.
It’s a React app that is hosted on AWS. Also, they made it mobile responsive, so it's possible to access on different devices. It's a messaging platform for sports teams that allows them to communicate internally, share their goals and workouts, and upload videos and photos. There are public and private channels, direct messaging, and an ability to send SMS notifications straight from the app. So it's similar to Slack in its functionality.
What is the team composition?
We work with three of their team members.
How did you come to work with Californly?
Our co-founder had worked with them previously. They shared some examples of their work with us, which we liked, and they were able to handle every aspect of the project. Also, they were cost-effective, so we chose them.
How much have you invested with them?
We've spent about $15,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with them in August and the relationship is ongoing.
