Most fascinating projects we completed in 2019

Check out the most fascinating projects we completed in 2019
Blue Sky Image

Blue Sky

Blue Sky is a sophisticated workflow management tool designed to centralize communication traffic between company members and customers. To accomplish this task we created a mobile application which covers mobilization, communication and organization needs between an administrator and staff members of event agencies, beauty centers, and many others.

TechInspect Image

TechInspect

SquarePeg Software Ltd provides its clients from Australia, Thailand, New Zealand, and Great Britain with vehicle inspection software. When we had an intro to the project their software worked only on Windows Mobile 6.5 platform. SquarePeg team came to the conclusion that they need to make their product compatible with more popular mobile platforms if they want to be up to date, keep the clients' loyalty and meet their target

audience needs.

We provided them with an Android and iOS app that is now a working tool used by hundreds of thousands of SquarePeg clients on a daily basis. Thus, we have done our best to make it as adaptable and easy-to-use as possible by optimizing the user experience. The users' positive feedback has proved that we have really succeeded. This project started in January 2014. We currently continue our fruitful cooperation with SquarePeg by providing them technical support and developing new features for their product.

BlastOut App Image

BlastOut App

BlastOut is a B2B app that allows visitors share interesting photos within selected event and in current geo-location. User can make comments on images, create own ones, connect with each other and swipe contacts for networking. Very useful in breaking the ice and makes it easy and fun to meet new people.

ManyWho Image

ManyWho

ManyWho asked us to help them create native Android and iOS (iPhone/iPad) application. The complex development solution was provided and development team assigned to perform mobile development, design creation, QA testing and project management. The key challenge was in dynamic UI development, which means taking generated objects and generating the actual UI for iOS and Android. All screens are generated “on-the-fly”, so the

purpose of this application is to generate the controller layout based on the object descriptions coming back from the ManyWho engine. If the user selects a button action, this will prompt the view to execute the engine and re-render the newly generated UI based on the objects returned.
Event App Image

Event App

The client provided event attendees with access to their personalized schedules and set meetings via the web application which had a couple of weaknesses:

  • usage of the application via tablet or laptop was difficult due to the bad Internet connection in hotels and conference centers
  • the application design wasn’t mobile responsive, so drop-down menus were difficult to read

Seeking to resolve

existing problems, improve service provision, and meet clients needs, the client requested us to deliver iOS and Android applications to them.


 

Idencia Image

Idencia

Our client was Idencia - a US-based world leader using RFID technology in the precast concrete industry. It provides infrastructure manufacturers with a system for tagging and tracking concrete and steel structures.

The Idencia initially had an RFID-based Windows desktop and mobile app. When they realized how necessary it was to keep up with technological trends, they decided to transfer their RFID information tracking

system to a web and Android applications.

Starting with branding we’ve made a research and created app design concept to meet functional requirements of the client and be appealing to users, taking into account their experiences using similar apps, needs, and expectations for improvement. Xamarin.Forms was chosen as a solution for

cross-platform performance, that helped us to minimize development time and deliver application faster ready for launch.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the COO of Inventive, a group of companies including custom product development, a training academy for software engineers and a product incubator.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire EGO Creative Innovations?

EGO Creative Innovations helped us to win a pitch by creating a stunning app prototype. They created a prototype of the MVP requested by our client, and also managed to implement it in a way that allowed the project to be further expanding without rewriting its business logic. And all of that was done with minimum technical requirements, DoDs, and documentation from the client.

What were your goals for this project?

Throughout our partnership, and this project in particular, EGO has helped us deliver beautiful and performant mobile applications for our clients.

SOLUTION

How did you select EGO Creative Innovations?

We have known the CEO of EGO Creative Innovations Eugene for a very long time and worked with his team before while at other companies. They have demonstrated expertise in software development, flexibility, and they excel at communication and project management methodologies. It was natural to use them for this project (and others since).

Describe the project in detail.

The project was a brand-new and highly complex mobile application with over 200 screens and many third-party API integrations. We needed a highly polished UI/UX, and flawless implementation - both of which EGO helped us deliver. Further, they helped us with QA, project management and business consulting at a very high level.

What was the team composition?

We have worked with a lot of their team already. During the last two projects, they had teams of 6+ people involved, including project manager, team lead, UI/UX experts, developers (front end, back end, mobile development), and QA specialists.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The EGO UX/UI team that a critical help during the initial client pitch, beating the incumbent software consulting company. We then together delivered the phase 1 MVP that was evaluated by the client so positively we won two further phases, and have become their new preferred software vendor.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Communicating with the company’s project managers is always a pleasure. We know we can always speak candidly with their team, and troubleshoot any issues with them. They are always focused on the transparency of the team’s work, on-time delivery, and strict coding standards.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their team's devotion and genuine customer-centric approach. Every team member is deeply involved in our projects and they constantly seek opportunities to deliver better results. They are loyal and enthusiastic, and always working with us to improve our deliverables.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Nothing significant remains - they have always been very responsive to our feedback.

Feedback summary: 

While the project began smoothly, it was hindered by delays in the first phase. An adaptable team, EGO Creative Innovations resolved the issues. The second phase of the project is on hold due to outside circumstances. Throughout the timeline, the vendor was responsive and collaborative.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CTO of a Travel Planning Startup based in Boston, MA. We are very early stage with a few thousand users using our online tools.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire EGO Creative Innovations?

We already have desktop and mobile web interfaces for our application and wanted to accelerate building a mobile app by working with a development partner who has expertise in this area.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to get a first draft of the mobile app into the App store early in 2020.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We sourced a number of development partners both onshore and offshore based on recommendations from our network. We then worked with 5 of these to come up with a more detailed estimate based on our initial specification. We then came to choose EGO due to their insight and diligence during the estimation process as well as the eventual cost estimate.

Describe the project in detail.

Once we decided to work with EGO we held a number of product meetings where we worked with both their Product Manager and Tech Lead to finalise the specification. This was a very useful process and EGO were able to help us with making some important decisions on the final product detail. Once we had enough of the specification to move into the development phase we then worked on a 2 week agile cycle to develop, test and review.

What was the team composition?

The primary team consisted of a senior developer, a junior developer, a product manager and a tester. All but the junior developer were part-time.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The first phase of the project went fairly smoothly but there were some delays in completing that phase. The team were very flexible resolving those delays which we appreciated. The second phase was intended to complete when we launched the App into the App Store but we ended up pulling back before completing this phase due to the Covid-19 pandemic having a severe impact on the travel space. It is our intention to pick the project up with EGO again in the future.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Communication we generally pretty effective. They responded quickly and never wasted out time.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team was very good at understanding our goals for the app and providing insight into the mobile experience. That helped us work towards a better solution together than we would have achieved without them.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There were some staffing issues that caused some delays and the speed of development was at times a frustration. Also we found that a larger than expected number of issues were picked up by our product testing rather than by their testing team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Founder & CEO of Small Wins LLC, which develops mobile applications to enhance the lives of new moms. The company is based in Chicago, Illinois and BAMBAMSleep! is our first app. I am the sole Founder so my role is quite diverse at this point. My focus so far is getting the idea off the ground, hiring, beta testing, customer success and marketing. As the company grow, my role will likely narrow in on hiring, customer success, marketing and fundraising.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire EGO Creative Innovations?

EGO Creative Innovations was selected after interviewing multiple creative development agencies in the US and abroad. Their team helped me bring the idea for BAMBAMsleep! from basic wireframes I had built in Sketch to reality. I worked with a project manager, UX/UI designer, developer, quality assurance and others. We had meetings twice a week to discuss every aspect of the project and Irina, our project manager did an excellent job at keeping everyone on the EGO side coordinated and within scope, timeline, and budget. The weekly meetings also helped hold myself accountable. Without all of these people, the project would not have come to life. Most importantly, the team was experienced enough to take my ideas and come back with thoughtful, well-research suggestions, which together made the product better than I had originally envisioned.

What were your goals for this project?

The goal was to build the iOS version of the MVP and to get it ready so it could be launched on the Apple Store.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I interviewed vendors based on recommendations from established mobile app developers. All the vendors I interviewed were very high quality. Ultimately, I decided on EGO because of the quality of their developers and team as well as their ability to create a high quality project with customized UI/UX design within my budget. It was important to me that the app was not "cookie cutter" design and they were able to make that happen. Furthermore, they were committed to meeting with me on a very frequent basis, so I felt that I was very involved in the outcome of the project.

Describe the project in detail.

I sent them the initial wireframes that I had built and the first couple of weeks were to discuss ideas, goals and logic. There were many logical issues that we had to sort out and they were very dilligent and patient in working through this. My meetings were twice a week and were always with both project manager and designer. The designer had flowcharts that I could see to review the logic and after a few weeks, she had designs of the main screens for me to review. Once approved, she quickly designed the rest of the screens and got my a clickable prototype that I could show to potential users and friends. After the approval of the prototype, the developer worked on it. Ultimately, the developer built 33 versions and during this process, there was a lot of back and forth with final details and changes.

What was the team composition?

Project manager, UX/UI designer, front-end/back-end developer, QA.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

At this point, we are beta testing the app and I am getting favourable feedback and no bugs yet! EGO helped me meet all the criteria to get the app approved by the Apple Store upon first try. They have also given good expertise and creative material to use in my separate marketing efforts.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The project manager assigned was great and kept the project moving , on time and within budget. She was a very effective communicator and got back to me on things super quickly. Despite being in different time zones, we were able to work together very effectively. I never once felt like I was out of the loop.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They coordinated, worked quickly, and included me on every step of the process. They definitely went the extra mile when it came to doing extra research and coming up with new ideas and suggestions for me. They took my vision and actively tried to make it better.

Are there any areas for improvement?

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 director of operations at UBERDOC, a health technology company. We offer a web application that allows patients direct access to a specialist.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with EGO Creative Innovations?

We needed to develop a solution that would populate doctors based on proximity and availability.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed a responsive web application that allows both doctors and patients to create dashboards and profiles to list their availability. They worked in an agile method, creating and working through story points. Developing the MVP took six months, and we then worked with them for another 1–2 years. We recently brought them back to do some maintenance and project development.

What is the team composition?

We talk to Kate (COO, EGO Creative Innovations), Kirill (Lead Technical Specialist, EGO Creative Innovations), Sachino (Project Manager, EGO Creative Innovations), and a scrum master.

How did you come to work with EGO Creative Innovations?

The relationship started when we created our company. Another vendor of ours had worked with EGO Creative Innovations in the past and introduced us.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since March 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Before EGO Creative Innovations, our lack of an admin portal was making us lose customers because we couldn’t get in touch with them. EGO delivered great quality for our budget and allowed us to do things we weren’t able to do before.

How did EGO Creative Innovations perform from a project management standpoint?

From the initial development, we were ahead of schedule and under budget. We’ve been meeting our sprints and only seen some errors once. Communication happens via Confluence, Jira, and email, and we have a conference call every two weeks.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’ve offered us a great hourly price. They excel at grasping what we need and bringing it to life in our technology.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not that I’ve seen.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Determine if the technology changes will deliver the benefits you’re looking for in your business model.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of BabbleStash, a small LLC which is an app company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Cayugasoft Tech?

I didn’t have the skill set to develop an iPhone application myself, so I was looking for web and application development services. The app allows users to capture their life story.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I came up with a comprehensive list of the thought-provoking life questions that people could answer to help them with the life stories—there are over 800, and they prompt the user in different ways. People record their answers into the app and then those answers are transcribed.

After a user has enough of the transcriptions done, they can export those to a beautifully formatted PDF that has an accompanying WAV file to hear the person’s voice while looking at their life story.

What is the team composition?

I worked with one project manager and three developers. There was a frontend developer, backend developer, and one developer who subbed in.

How did you come to work with Cayugasoft Tech?

They were recommended by a technical person in my town and I trusted his recommendation. I spoke to a lot of different companies and shared my idea, and a lot of the quotes I received were crazy. Cayugasoft Tech had the most realistic one, and it didn’t seem like they were trying to exploit me.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from around November 2016–March 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’re very literal and do exactly what we tell them to, which means we have to be very clear in our requirements. It’s good because we receive exactly what we want.

How did Cayugasoft Tech perform from a project management standpoint?

The communication was good, via Slack and Trello. They’re in Ukraine, so these things allowed me to interact with them in an accessible way, while they were always willing to talk.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were a terrific company that I really enjoyed working with and would definitely do so again. They’re very fair in their pricing and they worked hard to make sure they delivered a quality product.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They do exactly what you ask them to do, so you have to be sure of what you want. They’re very good, but it can be daunting. If you’re confident in what you are asking for, they’re terrific.

Their teams are very dedicated. I have worked with a lot of developers over the years, who can be irritable people, but Cayugasoft’s team is very friendly and accommodating. The project manager was helpful, and I liked working with them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

During the upfront calls, trust Eugene (COO & Co-Founder, Cayugasoft Tech); listen to him, and take his advice about what to do and not to do, because he knows what he’s talking about.

Feedback summary: 

The app recently launched and is already garnering positive response. EGO Creative Innovations managed the project well and were quick to respond. They resolved issues quickly and are easy to work with.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We create learner permit courses for our app, which is available in Australia, the U.S., and the U.K. I’m a co-founder and the acting CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with EGO Creative Innovations?

We didn’t have an in-house developer and wanted someone to support us as we built the app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our goal was to create more than just an app. We wanted to build an e-learning platform and have been building out the backend to work with both the app and the website. The finished product will be fairly complicated. They’ve been working to make the backend work with the frontend in React Native. It’s a cross-platform app for iOS and Android. They’re doing all the UX design and backend development.

The app itself replaces a driver manual and has a gamified structure. It goes through driving theory with pictures, gifs, and descriptions. Each user answers a series of questions until they get all of them right, then each chapter ends with a test. Users can’t advance to the next chapter until they’ve passed the test. Once the user advances, they get a new car in the app. We’ve also added achievement badges for inviting friends or using the app for a certain number of consecutive days.

What is the team composition?

We’ve had one project manager throughout the project. We’ve had two frontend developers, one backend developer, a QA lead, and one designer. The backend developer and the QA person changed in the process, but everyone else stayed on our project.

How did you come to work with EGO Creative Innovations?

We were originally looking for Swedish developers, but couldn’t find any that had the right level of expertise at a price within our budget. We started looking at developers in other countries and found two possible options through Clutch and other searches. We chose EGO because they had better designers.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent roughly 1.2 million SEK (approximately $136,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2018. We finished the first part of development in the summer of 2018 and took a break. We’ll complete some tests before continuing development later in 2018 or early in 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We had a few issues in the beginning with the apps. We spent about three weeks fixing things and just started marketing. The app is already well-received on both the App Store and Google Play. We have a lot of happy users and we can see that several people are already recommending it. Our Instagram ads get good feedback and our ratings are good. We’re really pleased with the reception.

How did EGO Creative Innovations perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been great. Our project was delayed because we changed the scope. The end goal has grown and become more complicated since we presented our initial idea. They’ve been clear and easy to work with from the beginning. We started with daily standups in Skype but changed over to Slack for most of our communication. That works really well for us.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re really dedicated to the product and committed to our needs. We had an issue with one of our certificates a few weeks ago. We messaged them and they resolved it within 20 minutes. They’re on top of everything.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could work on their communication. They’re not bad communicators, but that’s the only place I can think of that has room for improvement. Otherwise, they’re great to work with.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I don't have any specific recommendations, they're easy to work with.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The project is still in its early stages, but the EGO cms team’s ability to collaborate effectively is already apparent. They work proactively to address issues before they arise and add value by expanding on preliminary ideas. Their approach to managing the project has been exceptional thus far.

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 a startup called Ziptenant. We’re an automated property management platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with EGO cms?

We were looking to create a mobile application.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The application is a user-focused, role-based platform that supports five parties involved in the renting process: the property owner, the vendor that oversees maintenance repairs, the leasing agent, the tenant, and the platform admin.

EGO cms helped plan the app in what they call “the blueprint process”, during which I was able to meet with a business analyst and plan wireframes collaboratively. Through that process, the EGO cms team added tremendous value by expanding on my ideas and providing substantive guidance on improving the platform and making it more comprehensive.

To create efficiencies for the codebase, we’re using Xamarin to support iOS and Android, and a combination of Google Cloud and Firebase on the backend. The app allows tenants to request repairs, communicate with the owner, read their lease, fill out applications, sign new leases, and do almost anything related to the property management lifecycle.

What is the team composition?

I work primarily with a project manager, who has also served as a business analyst for us. We also work with an architect and UI designer. There are about six people on our project altogether.

How did you come to work with EGO cms?

I’ve met several people in Denver’s tech industry that had worked with them before, and they came highly recommended.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested about $8,000 thus far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in April 2018. We’re currently finishing up the wireframes in preparation for development.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We don’t have measurable results to share as of yet, but they’ve done a great job so far.

How did EGO cms perform from a project management standpoint?

Their approach to managing this project has been outstanding. We use a combination of Jira and Confluence to collaborate and track progress. Communication is primarily via email and conference calls on Zoom.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We’ve appreciated their professionalism and their ability to think outside the box. I’ve worked with offshore firms in the past, and it’s rare to find a group that takes a creative approach. They work proactively to confront complex challenges.

Feedback summary: 

Superior language skills and efficient project management make EGO stand out and allow them to hit milestones. They quickly grasp end-user requirements and proactively suggest solutions that enhance the product.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our company offers a practice management web application. I’m the senior director of engineering.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with EGO c.m.s.?

Since a lot of our customers wanted to access certain functionalities through their phone and tablets, we needed a mobile app version of our website. We chose to outsource to make it happen faster.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our architect drew up a list of requirements derived from our website and sent them to EGO. They came up with an estimate and started implementing them. They’ve already given us version one, and they’re now working on version two.

As they gain a better understanding of our system, they’ve given us feedback on the designs we’ve provided, offering options for doing certain things. Our product team then talks about their recommendations and chooses whether or not to use them.

The product is for iOS and Android. It has a streamlined user interface, which allows you to do certain things differently from the website. We’ve testing the app on the last two versions of most hardware platforms, including tablets, Apple phones, and Android devices.

What is the team dynamic?

We told them what our budget was and how fast we wanted to do it, and they sourced all of their team. The number varies over the course of the project. For version one, we worked with about 4–5 people. Currently, about 10 resources are working on version two, including QA [quality assurance] and design staff. They may not be full-time, as they come and go as required.

How did you come to work with EGO c.m.s.?

They were hired before I started working here.

How much have you invested with them?

We have spent $150,000 over the course of our relationship.

What is the status of this engagement?

Version two started in September 2017. It’s due to be released in January 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since we’re still doing QA, we haven’t released any of the versions yet. So far, I’m happy with their progress. The estimates seem realistic, and they’ve hit all of them.

How did EGO c.m.s. perform from a project management standpoint?

They have a dedicated project manager who is very efficient and competent. We use JIRA to manage tasks, and we have weekly calls with their team.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their English-speaking ability makes a huge difference in communication. I’ve worked with other Russian teams where they can’t speak English—they can only write it, so we had to have conversations through tools rather than in person. It’s nice to be able to speak to every developer, QA person, and project manager on the team.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not right now. We would have mentioned anything to them already.
