DreamWalk's efforts turned a concept into a tangible product that has been met with an extremely positive response. They took the time to understand the app, which made for a very effective team dynamic. In addition to exhibiting strong attention to detail, they possessed solid expertise.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CEO of Impactr, a startup with a vision to shift the entire worlds spending to trusted sustainable impact.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DreamWalk?

I engaged Dreamwalk to complete the full App design of our product to move it to be ready to build.

What were your goals for this project?

Complete App design and clickable prototype end-to-end, ready to build.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I observed that Dreamwalk is a leading agency in Australia with an Ethical development charter, and having a proven track record with App Store #1s and Features.

Describe the project in detail.

I had initially prepared a mockup mapping key parts of the app and some designs, and provided this to Dreamwalk to base the new design on.

What was the team composition?

The Founder & Creative Director personally designed the App himself.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since producing the design & clickable prototype, we have had exceptional feedback and a lot of excitement around the product. It has breathed life into the concept and it smartly integrates all the many key functions in a smooth way that is not overwhelming or complicated.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was very effective because we understood each other and had a structured way of sharing feedback via email and where needed on video calls.

Dreamwalk established a very good understanding of the App in the first place which allowed them to take more time to work alone and produce a good result after some time.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Dreamwalk's app design capability is world-class, and their experience shines through in the kind of attention to detail and polish that only comes with masterful design and a genuine understanding of the objectives of your product.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I was very happy with the outputs and Dreamwalk have the experience to trust they will meet the client´s satisfaction first time around.

However there is no wiggle room for changes after a progress delivery unless extra hours are charged as client revisions, which would have made it difficult to stay on budget if initial design outputs were not already "on point" and awesome the first time. So lucky for me they were great!

The app has been improved dramatically, leading to an increase in downloads and usage. DreamWalk establishes a smooth workflow, meeting the expectations of the internal team. The team goes above and beyond to deliver quality results that meet the needs of the client.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Founded in 2000, Easy Weddings is the No.1 wedding directory in Australia and is used by more than 80% of all couples who are planning a wedding. We also operate a wedding venue directory Venued.co.uk and the Easy Weddings marketplace in the UK. I am a product manager and lead new/existing product design & development.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DreamWalk?

We approached Dreamwalk to redesign/rebuild our existing planning apps across iOS and Android.

What were your goals for this project?

We hoped to drive more downloads/more engaged usage and higher retention of couples planning their weddings from engagement through to their big day.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were looking to change vendors after previous engagements were not delivering the results we were after. After looking at possible partners - DreamWalk came up again and again with great feedback and recommendations. Their previous work also was impressive from both a quality point of view and reach of audience.

Describe the project in detail.

DreamWalk took us from the ground up to delivery. From initial independent research, competitor analysis and facilitating initial ideation workshops with our team - they ensured both parties knew exactly what we were going to build before any design/development work commenced.

From there we proceeded to wireframes, Hi-fidelity UI/UX and then development on both iOS/Android. Finally they took through testing and release into the app stores.

What was the team composition?

We worked (and continue to work) closely with multiple stakeholders as needed for each part of the project's lifecycle.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We released our first versions of the ground up rebuilt apps in Feb 2019. We've since done almost a dozen updates and have achieved all our initial objectives. Our app reviews have also dramatically improved and continue to do so, with usage and downloads also up.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Great team work has been essential to our success with developers having to work closely together from both parties. After some initial teething issues we found the happy balance of tools/applications to ensure visibility/transparency/communication between teams and ensure a great collaborative experience.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their knowledge, skill, and experience in creating great apps with a focus on the end-user set them apart. They're clearly passionate about what they do and excel at delivering a quality product.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Overall we've been very pleased. Any issues we've had are quickly addressed, discussed and resolved.

Feedback summary: 

DreamWalk successfully executed sleek, well-designed apps that have already won the client their first partner. The team showcased their ability to think through design from a UX/UI perspective. While they could’ve improved their communication about allotted hours, the team comes highly recommended.

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 CEO and co-founder of Snackr, which provides food and beverage delivery for spectators at stadiums. At the moment, we’re a small team based in Perth, Australia.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DreamWalk?

We engaged DreamWalk to help us develop our MVP. We needed software that would allow us to deliver to stadiums, including client-facing functionalities as well as a backend enabling vendor input.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had a workshop where we shared some wireframes, which they took to develop user stories.

DreamWalk developed a consumer-facing application where users can order food and drinks from vendors. They integrating supporting applications—in the form of progressive web apps (PWAs)—to allow vendors and deliverers to offer their services.

These are for the App Store as well as Google Play. The progressive web app can be used on any off-the-shelf Android device, and the mobile is for both iOS and Android. The backend is written in Elixir, and the frontend for the consumer app relied on React Native.

The progressive web apps are in Node.js. We’re using Stripe for payment progressing, and Firebase Crashlytics, Tulio, and Forest Admin were the other technologies we used.

What is the team composition?

I worked with a project manager, but their whole team consisted of around six people.

How did you come to work with DreamWalk?

We created a list of potential developers and went through an interview process to shortlist 3­ that were based in Melbourne (which is a 5-hour flight away from Perth). We went through a series of meetings, and DreamWalk presented the best pitch. They understood the project’s potential challenges better than others, who glossed over the complexities of our goals.

How much have you invested with them?

Our initial budget was around $90,000, but scope-creep brought the final investment to be around $105,000 USD.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started engaging DreamWalk in May of 2019. The actual development ran between August 2019–February 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re only just launching the product now, so it’s a little early to tell. The product has been accepted by the Apple Store, and we’ve used the app to land our first customer. These are the best success metrics we can point to.

How did DreamWalk perform from a project management standpoint?

It was a mixed bag—they were very good at keeping in touch and keeping us updated on project progress. Having said that, they could have provided us with a more accurate understanding of the hours they allocated to different parts of the project. I understand that that can be difficult to do, especially when you’re operating in sprints.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their design is outstanding. I think their real strength is in their ability to focus on UX/UI to deliver clean, effective designs.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Earlier communication about the potential increase in work hours would’ve been appreciated. It would’ve also been great to see their team integrate better with our own developers, even despite the different areas of expertise.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Even though they offer project management, I encourage you to rely on your own PM resources. That’ll help you stay on top of how time is being allocated. In addition to that, you should definitely partake in the workshop that they hold at the start of the engagement.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the head of design at Planet Innovation, a global product development company that designs and commercializes products and services for companies in the medical space. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DreamWalk?

Although we have an in-house development team, we needed additional support when we had an opportunity to develop an app since most of our developers were already working on other projects.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

DreamWalk developed a native mobile app for both Android and iOS platforms, using designs we provided through Sigma Software. They also guided us through the launch process within the respective app stores, setting up the privacy policy in the process.

What is the team composition? 

We mostly worked with the director, a project manager, the creative director, and a lead developer.

How did you come to work with DreamWalk?

I researched vendors online and came across good reviews from previous clients of theirs. We also liked that they were local and, after speaking with Karl (Director, DreamWalk), I felt like he did a good job of outlining some of our needs and presenting their capabilities.

How much have you invested with them?

We invested about $74,000 Australian Dollars (about $52,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from November 2018–March 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The quality of their output was great overall. Our working relationship was also fluid and seamless. From the start, they understood the project very well and put us at ease.

How did DreamWalk perform from a project management standpoint?

They performed very well, planning the project thoroughly from start to finish and creating the necessary requirements. There weren't any surprises; they were able to keep to the schedule and provided a lot of transparency throughout the engagement. They used Workplace by Facebook and Slack, which made it very easy to collaborate and reach them immediately. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their client-centric approach sets them apart. They made themselves very accessible and used project management tools that allowed us to reach them almost instantly.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could've done a better job of anticipating some features outside of the scope of work they created, so we weren't spending too much time discussing them during sprints. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be openminded and collaborative, because many of the user experience and layout decisions will require input from both ends. Fortunately, they offer a lot of creative solutions and solid design options.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DreamWalk?

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to have an easier way for our clients to book campaigns and track their reach and availability across venues.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We liked that DreamWalk had extensive experience despite being a relatively small team, which convinced us that they would give our project the care it required.

Describe the project in detail.

We laid out our project plan at the initial meeting, and they recommended new features that would streamline our processes streamlined. Three weeks later—a timeline we loved—they delivered wireframes.

What was the team composition?

We worked predominantly with DreamWalk’s two founders, one acting as a project manager and the other as a lead designer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We received a beautiful, seamless design that adheres to our style guides and is easy for customers to navigate.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The DreamWalk team was easy to work with and completely transparent with their processes. They sent many progress videos and our project manager was available at any time to chat via the instant messaging service they set up for the project. They were accommodating with our tight schedule and allowed us to tweak the design as often as we requested, even daily.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

DreamWalk distilled the core ideas we needed in our app, advising us to forge excess features we didn’t need, and thus, saving us money. Their strategic knowhow not only created a user-friendly app but also streamlined many of our internal processes for our clients. Their design was clear and beautiful, and we felt like we were in great hands.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We’re extremely satisfied and would love to work with DreamWalk again.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DreamWalk?

I engaged DreamWalk to redesign the app's entire frontend.

What were your goals for this project?

My goals were to improve the UX/UI and build a stable, market-ready product.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Not only does their track record speak for itself, but I also had a previous relationship with DreamWalk’s co-founder.

Describe the project in detail.

The overall intent of the redesign was to correct existing bugs and improve the UX. Because we were improving an existing app, the project was well past a need for wireframes.  DreamWalk was responsible for correcting mistakes made by previous developers and delivering a state-of-the-art solution that addressed both user needs and my requirements, such as GPS tracking of dependents while in the care of others. The app is available on iTunes and Google Play for mobile and iPad platforms.

What was the team composition?

I’m not sure of the exact composition, but three of the company’s founders were very active in this project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app is stable. Although it is too early to publish any metrics, the quality has received positive feedback. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was excellent.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They foster a high level of trust. I was also impressed with their transparency, speed of work, and their ability to troubleshoot, adapt, and innovate.  

Are there any areas for improvement?

Everything was good from my perspective.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m one of the founders of eenemo, a mobile app that allows users to post two photos so that other users can vote and help with choice making.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DreamWalk?

We engaged their team to turn an idea for an app into a reality by creating and uploading eenemo to the App Store.

What were your goals for this project?

Our initial goal was to have a workable app on the App Store at the end of a 36-hour, non-stop proof program. DreamWalk continues to act as our advisors and developers for further improvements and additions to eenemo.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We searched online for app developers and DreamWalk stood out as an ethical, trustworthy, and professional company. We also really liked the look of their past projects. After speaking on the phone with their directors—who were positive, knowledgeable, and excited about our idea—we made the decision to engage their services.

Describe the project in detail.

They made things very easy in terms of communication from the very start. We had a number of telephone meetings and email exchanges before flying interstate to the DreamWalk offices for a 36-hour intensive workshop, where we acted closely with them to produce eenemo. We have since kept in regular contact for improving the app, marketing, and future plans.

What was the team composition?

We dealt with their mobile app strategist to begin with, who fine-tuned our idea and pitched it to the rest of the team. We worked on the product with DreamWalk's creative director, CTO, and lead developer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app has received five-star ratings and is being downloaded more and more. We haven’t had any negative feedback and hope to see momentum build towards it being the next big thing!

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

All members of the DreamWalk team were easy to work with. The project has stayed on track and has remained true to our original idea.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Before developing eenemo, we had no real experience in mobile app technology. The team at DreamWalk explained everything that we needed to know in terms that we understood; not once did they make us feel inferior due to our lack of knowledge. Their advice has only added value to our app and they took on the creation of it like it was truly important to them.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We’re satisfied with service provided to us. Things can always be done faster but the team stuck to doing things properly rather than quickly, and we appreciate that attitude.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am owner and founder of 2 companies: Energetic Education and Bottoms Up Fitness. I run professional development for teachers and personal trainers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DreamWalk?

I needed help creating my first educational app for primary and high school teachers.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

DreamWalk took my ideas and turned them into 2 amazing apps. They did everything, from concept and design to development.

One of the apps, ClassBreak, is a one-stop shop for resources, ideas, and games in the classroom. It is available for iOS and Android devices. I did the marketing myself.

How did you come to work with DreamWalk?

I found them through a Google search. I chose them because I found them helpful, friendly, and easy to deal with.

How much have you invested with them?

I spent less than $50,000 on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together 5 years ago. The project took about 4 months from start to finish.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They made my ideas come to life. ClassBreak has been ranked number 1 on the Australian education App Store 3 times. It has also received a number of 5-star reviews.

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

They were fantastic. They did everything they said they would do.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I was happy with the service, the price, and the end result. They were amazing. I’ve dealt with overseas developers before, and this was the best experience I’ve had creating mobile applications or websites. I am extremely grateful for the professional help that they provided me. Not only did they make my dream come true, but they were also really fun to deal with. I did a lot of research, and DreamWalk didn’t let me down.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I was extremely happy with them and what they were able to provide.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

DreamWalk built a great app using the latest technologies while being responsive and easy to communicate with. Despite delivering some things a bit late, quality hasn’t been compromised. Their CEO’s knowledge of the tech industry and expertise in developing apps is their greatest asset.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-founder of a mobile app called Bridget, which provides beauty-on-demand services. It connects professionals from the beauty and health industry with customers in an Uber-like fashion.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DreamWalk?

A business opportunity was clearly identified in the beauty and health industry, so my business partner and I decided to fill the gap. We needed to find the right developer for the app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

DreamWalk built my app for iOS and Android. There is a web backend through which we can access and modify all app data, including how much we are earning. We can add or block providers, check customers, and so on.

My business partner is a designer, so he handled that part. DreamWalk corrected it for the implementation.

There are 2 types of users on the app: providers or professionals (hairdressers, masseurs, or stylists) and customers. As a customer, I can find a provider within my location, select the type of service required, and see a list of options with distances. Clicking on a name will access a provider’s portfolio, history, availability, price, and reviews. Bookings and payments are done through the app; we are using Stripe for payments, and take a percentage of each transaction.

DreamWalk also provided consultation on how to advertise the app through social media. We were aware of this area, but they helped as well.

How did you come to work with DreamWalk?

A friend recommended them to me. I asked for a screen design sample and received an answer straight away.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project took 8 months to be completed. We’re still working with DreamWalk on a new version of the app which will be released in 2–3 weeks.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have around 200 users and 20 providers on the platform. At the moment, we are still recruiting professionals, and customers are aware that there isn’t a big enough pool at the moment. We want to reach between 35–50 providers in order to properly launch the app.

How did DreamWalk perform from a project management standpoint?

It was easy to communicate with them and they were responsive. There was nothing particular about the project management. The delivery was a bit late, but the quality was there.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Sam Russell, their CEO, is really impressive. He's knowledgeable of new technologies and of how to develop apps. We’re using a new technology called the Phoenix Framework, which can speed up the app and allow us to have more users.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No; they performed well. We’re adding more features, and, like any app, there will be some bugs, but we had relatively few.
