What was the scope of their involvement?
We engaged with them to build the app, the backend, and the platform.
We had already defined our consumer and B2B client audiences, and we shortlisted the critical features for each of these audience segments and for each platform across the app and the portal. They took care of all of the visual design, the design in the app itself, and building the app. The portal and API stack were built using Laravel and the authentication player is handled by Laravel Passport.
It’s a native mobile app for iOS and Android. They built the backend web portal so that we could use as a CMS for the app. It also provides a login for clients to be able to log in and get those insights around the content and social metrics.
It’s a video editing app which we found throughout the process was not an easy thing to build. All of the content is held in our AWS cloud, and, although a lot of the processing is done on the device, once the content is completed, that content is then uploaded to our cloud. They implemented app to cloud to backend functionality as well.
The mobile app and backend platform allow users use to combine their own clips with professional footage and ready-made templates. Then, they can share that film on their social channels. We receive that content, and we share the content with the brand so that the brand can get insight into how that content is used and see the success metrics of that content across their social channels.
What is the team composition?
We had a core team of about five people, and there was an extended development team with an additional 5–6 developers as well. We had a project manager/technical lead who was our main point of contact, and throughout the process, they called in additional people when needed.
How did you come to work with Corporation Pop?
Clutch played a factor in us finding and selecting them. We went through a tender process with about 10 agencies. Then, we shortlisted our top four. Corporation Pop won the pitch process.
How much have you invested in them?
We’ve spent around £300,000 (approximately $387,000 USD).
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with them in November 2017, and it’s an ongoing relationship.
The MVP launch was about seven months, and we launched on Android three months later. We’re still working with them on additional features, bug fixing, testing, etc.
