What was the scope of their involvement?
They are the main developers for a fantasy sports platform targeting different countries around the world. We launched a beta for the World Cup.
In the app, users create their own team using different types of drafting. You take a chance as a group of people to pick one player at each time. When the league starts, you get points based on your players. For example, if you score a goal, you’ll get five points. It’s mainly a social entertainment platform for friends and family. This is for the draft game
For the prediction game, we do predictions for the World Cup and now for the Africa Cup of Nations. It’s where you need to predict their winners, number of goals, and assign what we call the confidence point to show your capability to predict the right team to win the game. That’s on the platform as well.
We had a few meetings to explain what we needed and we showed them a few samples. They did the wireframes. They created the look and feel for the site.
Our plan is to launch another game and start developing the mobile application with them. It’s only a web application now.
What is the team composition?
We started working with one of the marketing managers. Once we started development, we worked with the project manager and five other people as well. When we launched the prediction game for the World Cup, it was increased to nine people because we only had two months to develop, test, and launch. They provided testing as well. Now we have two team members working with us, along with the project manager.
How did you come to work with Fantasy Sports Solutions?
I searched online for a company and narrowed it down to two companies. We worked in parallel for the first phase to decide which company was the best fit. We found Fantasy Spots Solutions to have much more transparency when it comes to working.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve invested $10,000-$49,999.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in June 2017 and the work is ongoing.
