Mature Mobile Reliability Standard

The highest priority of Design and Test Lab ☆☆☆☆☆  is Mature Mobile Reliability Standard that is the development of reliable mobile applications. 

But we don’t just write code. We help our clients to build better products by walking step by step along the way and helping to refine the vision and maximize chances for success. We apply the scientific knowledge in project planning, architecture development, programming and testing in our work.

Our software engineers necessarily cover the software applications with automated tests and also carry out the obligatory code-review procedure to make sure the source codes are correct. 

Our mantra — “We do not develop without tests!”.

Our slogan: “We correct mistakes at our own expense!”

Because if this is done at the expense of the customer, then we are interested in making as many mistakes as possible. If this is at our own expense, then we think about how to program more reliably!

Design and Test Lab values:

☆ Proven mobi-modules;

☆ High-performance apps 

☆ Low-cost maintenance; 

☆ 1-2-3 integration;

☆ Certified reliability engineers.

BiziBaza Image

BiziBaza

Using the intuitive capabilities for extending the seller's customer base BiziBAZA provides information about products and pricing, market conditions and retail analytics.

This app was created for flea markets shops, food trucks, and farmers markets.

The main goal was to design a beautiful and easy-to-use interface. We discussed lots of interesting ideas and sketched a number mockups for BiziBAZA.

After

a few weeks, we finally arrived at the optimal flow and set of screens. Following the approval of the basic design concept, we built the iPhone, iPad, and Web applications altogether.

The iPhone and iPad application features are almost identical. The web application is mainly focused on administrative functions.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I was CEO of Librelio. It was a turnkey solution for magazine publishers and content providers to distribute their content on mobile devices. It included customizable iOS, Android, and Windows 8 apps, plus a cloud-based backend. Librelio was sold.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Design and Test Lab?

We hired Vladimir Obrizan and Design and Test Lab to work on our two projects: Skier and Bike magazines. The challenge was to transfer knowledge about the existing code base to Vladimir’s team, and Vladimir quickly understood the code base, refactored, fixed lots of issues from the previous team, and implemented new features for us under tight deadlines.

What were your goals for this project?

I hired the team to work on a mobile software product line in the digital publishing area. The goal was to fix existing issues, implement new features, test them, and create two products from a single code base. Vladimir achieved all set goals with this project. All needed functions were developed and tested well.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

After an interview with several vendors, Design and Test Lab’s approach fit the best in our context. We choose them for technical experience and value for money factors.

Describe the project in detail.

Design and Test Lab provided the following services

  • Analyzed the existing code base
  • Proposed technical approach to fix issues and to implement new features 
  • Provided daily build for me to verify the results of
  • Tested the solutions
  • After-release issue maintenance 

What was the team composition?

One full-time senior software engineer was involved in the project, who was fully dedicated to my project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We successfully released the products on the app stores. Later, they helped me to sell the whole business to another company.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Design and Test Lab created a project plan, including priorities with tasks, and let me know about risks in advance, which they then mitigated. They also provided daily builds, so I personally reviewed the progress and was aware of all moves on the project. Vladimir has shown an excellent level of English, so communication was never an issue.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed by high-quality work at affordable prices! They managed to fix previous issues, create their product, and test it. Everything was done even better than planned.

Are there any areas for improvement?

My advice for Design and Test Lab is to expand their knowledge in the digital publishing domain. However, good technical backgrounds on the team helped them to ramp-up quickly.
