Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.
I needed a consumer-facing app with a light, modern, and efficient UI [user interface], and I needed that done natively on both iOS and Android. Our customers already ways of accessing our services through mobile devices, but we were looking for a way to do it with the precision and user friendliness you get with a mobile app. We wanted people who were using the latest tools on both iOS and Android, and could deliver a very high-quality app. I should say that we have not at this point, actually built the app. This will be a large project, well more than $100,000, and we're still trying to figure out when it makes sense to build it.
However, Crystalnix has gotten us to the point where we are ready to start coding. They've come up with all of the UI concepts based on our user stories and by interviewing us. They've completed all the wireframes, and every screen and choice the user would have has been set out by Crystalnix.
How did you come to work with Crystalnix Limited?
They make an app called Server Auditor, which is a commercially available iOS app. I found it by searching for the number one iOS SSH app. I downloaded it and tried it, and I was impressed. I thought it was a great app, so when we began talking about what developer we wanted to use I thought of them.
Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?
If we had completed the app, the total cost would have been around $100,000. Their pricing was reasonable.
What is the status of this engagement?
The relationship started in 2015 and went on for a couple of months. We decided to put the final execution of the app on hold, due to the cost and the timing. The app is all ready to be coded. If and when we start back up, we will definitely do the app with them. They're top notch.
