Desktop motion UI for gaming peripherals

This is the new UI that we are developing at the moment and have some projects going where we are implementing it. This video is a concept we made to show the clients. We believe motion UI or at least elements of motion UI can bring more attention and overall looks much cooler than the static UI most companies on the markets release. So this we see as a way to stand out of the crowd and make people feel a bit

in sci-fi or game.

INTERFACE DESCRIPTION

Typically the project like this consists first from two parts. Design work building full UI flow and motion design elements (designer and motion designer, sound engineer, a bit of software engineer). After that this UI can be created as multi-platform application or native application for the mobile platform.

The budget heavily depends on the goals of the UI and level of effects you would like to implement. Design concept may take 3 to 10 weeks. Implementation of UI may take 3-6 months depending on complexity.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the CEO of Metric Insights, which is a business intelligence software company. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Developex?

We engaged Developex when we were looking for engineering support to build out our product.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Developex has been a trusted development partner for many years. In that time, they built out our application—everything from creating the original designs to implementing various PHP, Python, and JavaScript elements. They work closely with us to add components to the application as we provide specifications. They also perform QA and have helped us set up our 24/7 support center.

What is the team composition?

It’s changed over time, but we work with dozens of members on their team. There is a development lead, but we operate in a collaborative environment. Instead of funneling all communication through one person, we work with the appropriate person on the team to do whatever is required.

How did you come to work with Developex?

We initially found them on a website tailored to freelancers. We posted our requirements and originally planned to just make the prototype of the system. Once we engaged with Developex and found the quality of their work to be so high, we decided to retain them as our ongoing development partner.

How much have you invested with them?

Over the years, we’ve spent more than $1 million.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began in February 2010 and remains ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They were instrumental in getting our software off the ground and working, and they remain just as vital to our success today.

How did Developex perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re open and transparent in their communication, which really sets them apart. There’s no nonsense, and everything is straightforward.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are deeply committed to the work. We sense that they feel just as much ownership in the product as we do. They are successful because of their high level of integrity and a strong commitment to quality.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We’ve had ongoing discussions over the years about how to best improve our processes. Most notably, they were very flexible once we switched to an agile methodology, and they’ve worked closely with us to make sure that the changes would be for the best.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the former director of QA at Playphone, a mobile gaming platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Developex?

We needed help with QA.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They did QA testing for our platform, which needed to be accessible on different devices and browsers. The technology stack was JavaScript, Angular, MySQL, and MongoDB; for automation, we worked with Python and JMeter.

Developex built test cases and plans, provided feedback on product features, built automation during the regression phase, and performed production validation. A major part of their work was troubleshooting. The team followed up with our developers on known issues. They managed the production admin portal.

What is the team composition?

Developex provided different team members as needed. We communicated directly with the engineers and had access to a project lead for admin issues.  

How did you come to work with Developex?

I reached out to them because I’d worked with them in the past.

How much have you invested with them?

My company spent $200,000-$500,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They built the performance tests and launched them on time across a platform of millions of users. The team was very trustworthy, which is why I gave them access to the production admin portal.

How did Developex perform from a project management standpoint?

Developex had an offshore engineering team with unlimited resources. They fulfilled our requirements, such as being hands-on and providing regular updates. The team’s communication was excellent, and they spoke fluent English. We communicated via email, chat, and Skype. They were flexible and made themselves available during US business hours

What did you find most impressive about them?

Developex was transparent about costs, and they operated with integrity. My team was impressed by their skill level. They executed a great internal process.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There were occasionally team members that weren’t as skilled or motivated as others. However, this is typical of any big company.

Feedback summary: 

Developex’s work resolving critical bottleneck junctions has quadrupled the platform’s speed. They are flexible and accommodating, offering a wide range of services and providing resources as needed. Professional and highly skilled, the team communicates well and speaks fluent English.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of 2gnōME, a technology platform in the education space. The platform supports professional development and skills awareness for teachers by using data—like a teacher’s existing level of skills—to personalize the learning experience for every teacher, at scale.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Developex?

We hired Developex to build the platform’s software and code.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Developex has worked on the platform since its days as a prototype through to the enterprise-grade platform we have now. The team developed the platform using Python and Django. They built a data aggregation and analytical component that assesses users and allows them to see the results of the assessment and understand their skills readiness. They also created another component that connects this assessment data to available professional development content. This component uses a lot of algorithmic power to connect the right support and training to each user, at scale. Since the platform must make this connection seamlessly with content that is owned by various clients, schools, and organizations, Developex also developed the platform’s API, enabling integration with different systems.

What is the team composition?

We work with 3–8 Developex team members. My team worked with skilled developers and a middle layer of project management when we needed to work quickly during development. I scaled the team down once the platform was built out, then added expertise for integration. We’ve been able to deploy a graphic designer and an AWS expert as needed.

How did you come to work with Developex?

The project manager that built my platform’s prototype recommended Developex. I also previously worked with them at a very large enterprise IT company.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them in May 2015, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

During the development of this fairly complex platform, we needed to resolve computational bottlenecks. In addition to all of the architectural and software development work that they were doing, Developex confronted these critical bottleneck junctions by running tests and connecting results to our AWS settings. Ultimately, they quadrupled the platform’s speed. This was a very measurable impact that Developex has had, on top of the platform that they created.

How did Developex perform from a project management standpoint?

The Developex team fosters excellent communication and speaks fluent English. When they attend client meetings or internal discussions, I’m always impressed by their sophisticated language skills, at both professional and conversational levels. Trello is our tool of choice.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Because we are a startup, growth drives our development cycle, so it’s hard to think long-term. We’ve been very satisfied with Developex’s ability to add resources to our team as needed. Their comprehensive, scalable set of services—including front- and backend development, design, and architectural infrastructure work—holistically help an entrepreneur such as myself bring ideas to fruition, and I give Developex the highest praise for that.

Having worked with Developex in both a startup and large enterprise context, I know they can provide a full gamut of support and services. I have gotten to know Developex’s CEO and team personally, and I commend them for their professionalism and expertise. They review specs with a curiosity that many developers lack. This curiosity is an important cultural attribute and manifests itself in the way they approach their work.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, they’re fine the way they are.

Any advice for potential customers?

Try to be specific, because Developex works within specific parameters. To bridge the gap of knowledge quickly, clarify the goal.
