What was the scope of their involvement?
I provided some basic wireframes that depicted how I wanted to build out the technology. They understood my vision, despite its complexity. Then, their team expanded upon my ideas, elaborating on the UI/UX. They wrote the product in Swift in order to produce an iOS app that could function on the iPads used by professionals in the field. The backend is a Ruby on Rails CMS platform. We just finished up the first phase of the project and are moving into stage two.
What is the team composition?
I consistently worked with two resources here in Denver. They have a network of offshore developers that they utilize as needed. So, I’m not sure how many people worked on the project in total, but my points of contact were always the same.
How did you come to work with Epic Apps?
I originally pitched this project to an organization that we’ve worked with before. They wanted way more money than I’d budgeted for it, so we started searching Google for other options. Epic Apps showed up in my searches with great reviews. I scheduled an interview with them.
In our conversations, I was impressed with their ability to disseminate complex information quickly and offer up their approach if hired. When their quote came back, it was right where we needed it to be. We decided to hire them.
How much have you invested with them?
We spent about $25,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in November 2018, and they’re still providing ongoing support for this project. Their team finalized the first version in August 2019, but we’re moving into phase two now.
