How did you select this vendor?
I’ve built several apps using several different developers, but Etilox Solutions was lightyears ahead of everyone else. A friend that had also built a few apps referred me to Etilox. We selected Etilox after communicating primarily with Pratik (Founder, Etilox).
Describe the project in detail.
We started with a series of discovery meetings to map out the functionalities we wanted in our platform. This also involved creating a rough outline/swim lanes. Once Etilox had an idea of the work cut out for them, they created a detailed contract containing every milestone along the creation process, along with how much time and money each task required. After agreeing on the contract, they started immediately, turning a working prototype around quickly.
For the testing period, they provided us with their test app for Android and Apple Devices, and we supplied them with the changes/improvements we wanted, primarily using Google Slides. When we submitted feedback, changes were usually done within 24 hours. We went back and forth like this until we were satisfied with both the Android and Apple App. Etilox handled submitting the apps to the App Store. Apple required us to make slight changes, but Etilox made those changes quickly and efficiently.
We then had Etilox create a website, which was tricky because it relied on the same database the app used, but they built a solid website with all the same functionalities as the app. I still keep in contact with Pratik and his team regularly and have recommended him to other entrepreneurs. Overall, the experience has been excellent.
What was the team composition?
Communication was fully handled by Pratik, who was a pleasure to work with. He has a team of developers that work for him, and he was able to effectively communicate our feedback to his team, and his team's feedback to us.
