Enter the Game Image

Enter the Game

Large companies face the problem of effective employee trainings, especially when trainings need to be done for at least hundreds of employees. "Effective" means two things: - economical - interesting for the employees and bringing measurable and reliable resultsTrainings can mean: - preparation to a workplace - raising awareness of employees in selected areas"Enter the game" changes traditional, boring and ineffective forms of

staff training into engaging micro-learning on the mobile phone in free time. Learning takes the form of entertainment - educating is a side effect of having fun.In the game employees become CEOs of the company in which they normally work. Their job is to develop the company. In order to do that, they need to learn new things. Their knowledge is verified through quizzes. Global ranking shows points of all of the players - the best players receive awards after each few weeks.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the MD of a startup organization called Go Out Out Ltd. We aim to provide users with a guide to events and venues that meet their requirements through an app

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Expansio?

Data was key to ensure users could receive updates and have confidence in the application. The biggest data set was with Facebook, so the logical point was to extract that through the Graph API and allow it to be customised for our end end users to benefit from

What were your goals for this project?

Obtain authentication from Facebook, create a the API, create a standard table and filter upon this

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Working with contacts at Innovate UK. After interviewing all suppliers, Mateusz and his team really grasped the issue and where extremely accommodating

Describe the project in detail.

Obtain authentication from Facebook, create a the API, create a standard table and filter upon this

What was the team composition?

Mateusz was the main contact, he managed the plan and kept me in the loop with his team

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We achieved everything that was set out in the statement of works. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It was a good relationship that filled me with confidence throughout the timeline.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Coming into this, I was slightly concerned that language barrier may be an issue. This was not the case. I most impressed by the forward thinking of Expansio, the app has been configured openly to allow any other development team to pick it up and planned as foundation to grow upon. It was not a quick job to tick the box, real attention to detail was putting into the way it could be built

Are there any areas for improvement?

None from me

Feedback summary: 

Expansio successfully developed the game app and improved the app by applying user feedback. The team delivered strong engagement in the project, creating a unique product that was tailor-made to fit the requirements. They offered excellent communication and strong flexibility in development.

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 assistant to the plant manager for a major car company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Expansio?

The main goal was to improve knowledge regarding the ongoing industrial revolution. We have noticed that we have many employees who have worked for us for several years, and the activities they do now are totally different from what they will be doing in two or three years. The technology and development are so huge. We need people who are motivated and want to know what the production process will be in several years’ time. We wanted to find a company who could help us to develop software for a game for our employees to play to help build awareness internally about our innovation. It was the first cooperation we had with a company like Expansio so we learned a lot during the process.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

During the cooperation with Expansio, we decided that they could be co-creators of the concept. We developed a game application for Android and iOS. Expansio helped us develop the details, such as the questions our employees could answer within the game.

The gamers are our employees, from the factory workers to those who do administrative work. We wanted to have three main levels, and the employees can choose to do all the levels or just the one they wanted to participate in.

What is the team composition?

We had contact with the project manager as our main point of contact. In the later phase of the project, we were also in contact with other employees from their team. I’m not sure how many people worked on the project in total.

How did you come to work with Expansio?

We searched startup companies located in Poland, and we came across Expansio.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from April–December 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Before we started the project, we asked several users for feedback in a test phase. They mentioned there were some things that didn’t work as they would have liked. Expansio was flexible and reacted quickly to that feedback and improved the software.

How did Expansio perform from a project management standpoint?

We were satisfied with the communication. In the hot phase of the project, we were in contact on a daily basis. When we let them know we needed more data, they provided us with it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The most impressive thing was their ability to be flexible. They truly understood our project, which was one of the reasons our cooperation was good. They were flexible to our needs, and it was a learning process for both sides. Also, they had expertise in how a company like ours works.

During the whole process, there was a common goal, and they were highly engaged. For me, it was important that they didn’t want to sell us a product that they already had. They wanted to develop the program with us. They asked us what we needed and tried to develop it according to our requirements.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could improve when it comes to responsibility within the team. They had new employees, which was good for our project, but the responsibility within the team could be more efficient. It might be better if we had more than one contact person. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It’s important to give them clear goals and explain how you want things done. The more you let them know your expectations, the more they will know what they need to work on and develop to meet your needs.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the owner of Yachting Software Ltd. We primarily develop navigation software for marine activities and solutions to increase fishing productivity.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Expansio?

We had an existing app that had been built by other developers, but we needed to integrate it with another application built with the Navionics Mobile SDK.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed to seamlessly connect the Navionics app with our Yachting Software app before a fixed deadline.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We provided specifications to an EU-funded organization, and they selected Expansio.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

First, Expansio examined the Yachting Software app’s functions and interfaces and analyzed the Navionics app. Then they put together a plan to connect the two. Once that was finalized, they integrated the applications into one. We had a public demonstration scheduled in November, so they worked quickly to finish the project before that deadline.

What was the team composition?

Expansio provided a team of developers who collaborated with our internal software team and the app’s original developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

By combining our flagship application with the Navionics app, we have the opportunity to grow our customer base.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Expansio was responsible for the largest portion of the project. They really took the lead collecting information on the functionality of both the Yachting Software and Navionics app and defining the project requirements.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They understood our programming requirements and adjusted their approach to accommodate our needs. They analyzed the application from the user’s point of view, which helped them deliver a high-quality experience.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, nothing comes to mind.

The success of the file-transfer product is company-wide, being the exclusively used solution for transferring files. Expansio continues to impress with their Organizer product, as well as their friendly contact and useful knowledge.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

SeniorSkep sells medical products via online stores. I’m a vice president.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Expansio?

We cooperate with Expansio on many projects to have them develop simple website solutions for us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The most recent project was called Organizer, a solution to organize work in our company. It's one of Expansio’s products, though we're still discussing how it’s going to work in our company. The project is completed, but we're not using it in full functionality yet because we haven't had time to implement it in our work. They use WordPress and Java for the product.

What is the team dynamic?

We are in contact with one person from their team all the time. My friend works closely with them on this project.

How did you come to work with Expansio?

My friends recommended them. We tested many people, and they're the best programming company I've worked with, due in part to the close contact we have.

How much have you invested with them?

We have spent $7,000 on the project.

What is the status of this engagement?

The Organizer project started in April 2017, and we are still not finished. Our people still need to get used to it and start using all its tools.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Besides Organizer, they created a file-transfer solution that’s been productive for our company. This is our only method of transferring files, and we are very happy with it. There are other small solutions they’ve done for us.

How did Expansio perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicate through phone or Skype. When we have a problem, we call them to fix it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their friendly contact, fast solutions, and useful knowledge set them apart. It’s easy for them to find solutions to problems.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No.
