How did you select this vendor?
Base on the market research and the portfolio we have chosen 4 agencies to the pitch. Mandatory for taking part in the pitch was provide solution that will include all described in the brief functionalities with clear description of the mechanism, actions and items included and interaction between modules.
Of course suggested solution had to meet the budget criteria and be cost effective in terms of the maintaining and further development. We have decided to chose Develtio from among of the other agencies base on the matched needs from the brief to the provided offer, but also on the fact that we had already started with this company one project - webpage for Dakea brand. It was easier for the agency to deeper understand our business goals, communication with the Target Group and overall touch and feel of the brand.
Describe the project in detail.
Once we have selected Develtio as our partner for this project we have organized workshops to define customer journey path and match the needs from all of markets in terms of the functionalities. As next steps agency worked on the functional UX mock-ups. We have decided also to contract Develtio also for the scope of the creative work - name of the application, logo, brand book and POSM.
As the agency was simultaneously working on the web page for Dakea brand they were also presenting us solutions that could be crossed between app and page. Before application was released to a UK market we have performed with agency and our Sales Team tests. Launch in UK was followed by further work on the CEE versions. Currently the application is available in WE and CEE and we are still working with Develtio on the further development of this tool.
What was the team composition?
The team consisted of a IT Project Manager with whom we had direct contact, a team of UI designers, React Native Developers, PHP Developers and DevOps Engineer. The first stage, there was a workshop with a Digital Consultant and a Project Manager to create product vision.
