What was the scope of their involvement?
Fast Rope built our iOS app and API from scratch, providing both consulting and development services in the process. We presented them with some initial wireframes and requirements that they then scoped out including the cost for the number of hours it was set to take. Following development, they posted the app to the app store and walked us through the launch process.
Features included the ability for organizers to use third party APIs to invite people into projects. Users are able to create a wall, sharing what types of events others were attending and donate to projects through the app.
What is the team composition?
We mainly worked with Dhruva (Founder, Fast Rope Labs) and Garren (Senior Tech Advisor, Fast Rope Labs) and I didn't have a lot of interaction with any of the developers.
How did you come to work with Fast Rope Labs?
A friend of ours who had worked at the White House recommended Fast Rope. Once we sat down with their team, we were impressed by how they scoped out our work. They also provided the lowest quote out of all the vendors we were considering.
How much have you invested with them?
We've probably invested about $45,000 at this point.
What is the status of this engagement?
We worked together from April to November 2017 on the initial build and were able to test it in London. We'll use those results to pursue the second version with Fast Rope once we secure funding from our investors.
