Being passionate fans of fishing, a group of investors faced a problem: it is very hard to catch many fish when you go fishing not very often. It requires constant practice or studying special forums and literature to find places with a fine catch of fish. Besides, there were no apps in our market that showed statistics on reservoirs or described the best types of fishing to use there. And Fingers was chosen to improve the situation :)

Fish Club

Being passionate fans of fishing, a group of investors faced a problem: it is very hard to catch many fish when you go fishing not very often. It requires constant practice or studying special forums and literature to find places with a fine catch of fish. Besides, there was no any product in our market that shows statistics on reservoirs or describes the best types of fishing to use there. These data would simplify preparing and give an answer to the question where go fishing and which type to use.

Feedback summary: 

Fingers successfully completed and released the app. A large majority of web app users adopted the mobile app, and it garners positive feedback for its user-friendly convenience. The team delivers quality products and speedy, responsive, and professional service at affordable prices.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CTO of GetBlogger, a blogging platform that provides advertisers with the proper influencers from Instagram and YouTube.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Fingers?

We wanted to find a team that could help us make an iOS and Android app in a short period of time. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed our iOS and Android apps. They made difficult functionalities: one for the blogger and one for the advertiser. There were several phases. First, we made the design and inLogic API and then, they started to develop the apps. We had an existing website, and they put the functionalities from the site into the apps. We developed the profiles for the blogger and the advertiser, the registration process, and several other features such as a search mechanism and synchronization data between the web app and the mobile app.

Fingers did both the design and development. The apps were released in October 2018. We continue working together.

What is the team composition?

There was one iOS developer, one Android developer, one designer, one team lead, and one project manager.

How did you come to work with Fingers?

We found Fingers in an online search. 

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent over $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in December 2017 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Two-thousand advertisers and 70% or about 15,000 of our bloggers moved to the app. There were some bugs that the team fixed quickly. The feedback was great. Bloggers are especially fond of the app; it’s much more useful and convenient for them to use the mobile app over the web app.

How did Fingers perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management was great. The project manager responded quickly. They’re exceedingly professional and tried to complete the task as fast as possible. We’re a startup and time is really precious for us.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The Android app was excellent from the beginning. It had minimal bugs, and it came out more quickly than I thought. 

Their cost is suitable for a startup like us. Everything was great.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They can improve design a little bit. We spent several weeks making corrections in design. It’s not bad, but could be better. All in all, it was great.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder and CEO of Double Tapp Ltd. We provide a rewards platform to incentivize users to post about their favorite brands on social media.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Fingers?

We engaged Fingers to build a mobile application for iOS devices and a web portal.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to create a functioning MVP of our platform to test on the market.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We spoke with nearly 20 agencies and ranked them on a spreadsheet. Key factors include their speed of delivery, the ability to understand our vision, fluency in English, their rates, and their rating on Clutch. Fingers ranked the highest among these categories.

Describe the project in detail.

We started with numerous meetings to discuss the project and our goals, target markets, and target users. We wanted to integrate the app with Instagram’s API, so Fingers’ business analyst looked into its functionality to make sure that our project is feasible. The team then created two rounds of wireframes and mockups before building the app. After various testing phases, we submitted it for the App Store’s and Instagram’s approval. 

What was the team composition?

We’ve worked with a business analyst, a designer, and various developers. We also have two project managers who serve jointly.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app has yet to launch. However, its functionality worked well during our testing, and Fingers quickly fixed any bugs that came up.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Fingers is great at managing the project's workflow. Once we were onboarded into Trello, the process has been highly efficient. Their team offers a broad skill set and understand our vision well. 

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team is highly supportive, personable, and eager to help. Their project managers go above and beyond, offering insights and suggesting better ways to run processes.

Are there any areas for improvement?

They could improve their responsiveness to emails. I’m used to immediate follow-up with emails, and I had to inquire a few times to make sure that the Fingers team had seen my message.

The process is going better than expected due to Fingers' impressive project management role. The team is timely, quick to respond, and provides high-quality code. Their professionalism and commitment to understanding the client make for superior service.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our company is called Vidzoo. We are a social platform for filmmakers and position ourselves as a virtual production assistant in France. We help production companies with their recruitment problems. We also help filmmakers boost their profiles so that these companies can easily find and hire them. We are now developing new functionalities with Fingers to help the production companies find shooting locations for their films. It's like an Airbnb, but for film locations.

I'm the co-founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Fingers?

We were trying to find more inexpensive and effective developers than we could find in France. Development can be quite expensive in France and in the United States. By approaching Fingers, we expected the quality of work would be as good or better than developers in France, as well as a cheaper solution.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We already had our website, but we decided to start from scratch with Fingers. It started with a very simple website. We first tried getting some user acquisition. We brought users onto the platform so we could test and get their feedback. The feedback from our users was positive, but there were also areas for improvement. This was more on our side, not the technical side because we created the functionalities, how it should work, and the mockups.

With that, we determined what the problems were and fixed them with Fingers. We also developed an API so we could start developing the mobile applications very soon. They used PHP with the Laravel framework, but I can't go too deep into detail. We managed the website's design ourselves, but Fingers did the responsive design. The whole project is quite a challenge and they are managing to do it pretty well. They are very good.

How did you come to work with Fingers?

A friend of mine knew them from Belarus, and he got us in touch with them.

How much have you invested with Fingers?

We've invested an approximate total of €30, 000 [$35, 800]. Half of this has been with Fingers.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started in December of 2016, and it is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They have deadlines. Sometimes they are a day or two late, but that is quite normal. Sometimes they finish a bit earlier. We also have a developer here that ensures their code is good quality. It has been going well so far.

How did Fingers perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management is great. They hired a someone who speaks French to talk with us. His name is Vitali. He is a great project manager and always willing to answer our questions very fast. We have weekly meetings with him. When I ask a question, he is always there to answer quickly on Skype. Whenever I need to talk to him he makes himself available. Project management is a big part of what Fingers offers, and it's very good.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are very professional. We are not tech guys, so we just wanted to make sure they were doing a good job because we didn't know much about coding. We asked a couple of developers here in France to review their code, and they told us it was great. They're better than what we expected.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don't have any feedback for now. Things are going well.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Fingers?

We have we have a CTO [Chief Technology Officer] here in France that works with them on a daily basis. It's pretty good for them because our CTO reviews their code daily. They also have a document containing all the things they can and shouldn't use. They're following the plan. My advice for others is to have someone work with Fingers who knows the technical stuff.

The new platforms have facilitated meaningful, targeted customer engagement. The client looks forward to expanding the site's capabilities with the Fingers team and especially appreciates their communicativeness and transparency. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Wargaming is an award-winning online game developer and publisher. One of the leaders in the free-to-play MMO market, the company delivers gaming experiences and services across PC, console and mobile platforms. I'm the deputy head of the events department. We create and hold events for Wargaming players throughout the CIS.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Fingers?

We create free events for thousands of visitors, and we had three problems: we couldn’t predict the number of visitors; we did not know who of our players attended the event; and we needed to check visitors’ tickets.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Fingers designed and developed the website, which allows our players to book tickets to our events. This way, we can track the approximate number of visitors as we prepare the event and adjust our marketing activity accordingly. And now we know who, out of our players, attended the event, which allows us to collect feedback and reward them.

Also, Fingers developed the mobile application for Android and iOS (WG Scanner), which let us check visitors’ tickets in real-time.

How did you come to work with Fingers?

Fingers won a tender three years ago.

How much have you invested with Fingers?

That is confidential.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started our partnership in 2014, but we worked in small iterations. Currently, we’re continuing our mutual work, and we have big plans to upgrade the project this year.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

We have hosted more than 10 events with the help of the website that Fingers created. Due to WG Scanner, we control the number of visitors that are able to attend the event. Also, we can see a picture of visitors and conduct surveys with them after events. In future versions, we want to give players the opportunity to create their own events using WG Scanner.

How did Fingers perform from a project management standpoint?

Their performance is great; all processes are always transparent. They plan every iteration themselves and we have daily and weekly meetings where we can check a project’s state.

What did you find most impressive about Fingers?

Their approach to work is very impressive. They have very strong process foundations.

Are there any areas where Fingers could improve?

I can't think of anything.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Fingers?

Trust them and listen to their advice.

In the first month since launch, the app garnered over 1,000 organic downloads and is facilitating an increase in several projects between investors and entrepreneurs. The client praised Fingers for their well-organized project management.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm an individual entrepreneur from Belarus.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Fingers?

I turned to Fingers with an idea to develop a platform where investors and startups can meet and communicate easily. The initial idea was to develop a mobile application. The main idea was to build a chat for investors and startups, but it was just a hypothesis that people would actually like it. Moreover, after application development, I felt a need for a website with the same functionality as well. So, people from Fingers had a high goal to be accomplished from the very beginning of our collaboration.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We started with mobile application design. The Fingers team dived into the project and its analysis. They started from sketches on paper and finished up with mobile app designs, screen flow, and detailed specification document. Fingers tracked all the project process in Trello and presented me the concept two times during the design stage.

When they ended up with design, the development process started. Fingers showed exceptional adherence to deadlines and dedication to the project. There were several small problems, but they always informed me in advance and implemented quick solutions.

After mobile application development, I continued my cooperation with them to develop a website. It was a pleasure to go through all the stages from design to development again.

How did you come to work with Fingers?

They were one of several mobile app development companies that I found. When I first met them, I liked the approach and the passion that their team has towards what they do. So, I chose them.

How much have you invested with Fingers?

Sorry, I can't provide you this information.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started with the design of both the Shance mobile app and website in June 2016, and they were completed and published in September.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that demonstrates the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

The app launched about two months ago; during the last month (October), we had more than 1,000 organic downloads. The number of projects created in the app grows as well. 

How did Fingers perform from a project management standpoint?

Fingers showed great performance from a project management standpoint. I could track all the work in Trello, a project management system that they used for this engagement. All the process was divided into milestones where they showed the results and progress. Every week, I was getting brief updates of what was done and what was going to be done next week.

What did you find most impressive about Fingers?

The thing that impressed me the most is the real willingness to help find the right solutions. The Fingers team could foresee the problems I could have faced and helped me with risk management for my idea.

Any there any areas Fingers could improve?

There's always a wide area of improvement for everyone, but I can't think of any specific areas where Fingers was weak. I hope in the future that the level of their services will be even higher.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Fingers?

If they are looking for an experienced team of developers, they shouldn't hesitate. Plus, Fingers has nice UX/UI [user experience/user interface] designers and business analytics, so it was worth working with them during the design stage.

Feedback summary: 

This is the client's first app development project, but he is pleased with Fingers' work as well as their detailed suggestions on all aspects of the project. The client appreciated seeing mutual respect between Fingers' management and engineers.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I have come up with the idea of a mobile application that would allow people with low language knowledge to use key phrases to get help from others.

We provide consultation on medical care issues as well as legal issues associated with buying companies and operating within the EU. We support clients outside of the Russian Federation. I am the owner of the business. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Fingers?

I had no knowledge of how to create and implement my business solution. I simply had an idea but never worked within the IT sector. But I have traveled quite extensively, especially in the 90s, and found that not knowing the language of a country of study or residence can lead to problems. The same problem exists for tourists as well, and everyone in this situation will have many day-to-day issues to resolve.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Fingers has developed a prototype of my app. We've had numerous discussions on user-experience elements, such as where key phrases should be placed, how to distinguish between people searching for help and those offering it, and so on. Fingers could provide good suggestions for my solution.

How did you come to work with Fingers?

I started looking online with the aim of finding a small company. As a newcomer in this field, I was concerned about due diligence and legal issues associated with the partnership. I met and sat together with the team, having a general conversation during which I expressed my thoughts without going into specifics. After about 3 trips, I made up my mind to work with Fingers. I liked their general approach and the positive atmosphere in Fingers' office.

 How much have you invested with Fingers?

The cost of my project with Fingers has been $1,800 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

I started working with Fingers 3 months ago. It's more difficult to find sponsors for IT projects in Europe than it is in the US. I also can't concentrate on this project full-time, so for the time being, we have only developed a prototype. The next step will be investing in a functional version which we can publish on the app store. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

In order to be objective in this matter, I would have to be an experienced applications developer. This was my first endeavor, and so far, I can say that Fingers has been open to every suggestion I've had. I had a say in everything done so far, and Fingers gave me feedback on every detail, from the logo, color format, and what key-phrases we used. IT was a mutual development collaboration. As an example, the application ties to geographical maps, so we considered what solution should be used for this: either making our own, or tying the app to Google Maps. Fingers has a very creative designer who provided insights for my customer needs.

How did Fingers perform from a project management standpoint?

I'm a demanding person, but I do tend to cut people some slack. I can't therefore say if I've gotten as much as I could for my money. Also, compared to the US, the European development market is less competitive. I went by a price/quality ratio, and in this sense, I was satisfied with Fingers. Their management addressed my questions thoroughly.

What distinguishes Fingers from other providers?

Fingers has a team of key players. Everyone was constantly involved during our presentations, and there is mutual respect between their management and engineers. I didn't find any issues, which was nice to see.

Is there anything Fingers could have improved or done differently?

I can't think of anything.

Do you have any recommendations for others considering working with Fingers?

I have received an outline of the work done so far by Fingers, including plusses and minuses for the collaboration. The negative issues had to do with timing and cultural differences between our groups, which is something other clients should consider.

BACKGROUND

Please give me a brief description of your company.

We are a leading Belarusian digital communication agency. We provide strategic and creative services, full-service implementation, and support of complex digital campaigns for international and top local companies: Heineken, Danone, Pernod Ricard, JTI, Volkswagen, Nestle, and others.

What is your role/position at the company?

I am the Creative Director.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was the general business challenge that you were trying to address when you approached Fingers?

We've worked with Fingers on 2 projects in 2014-2015:

  1. DISCOVERMORE. This is a trendy and engaging mobile platform for photo editing, with the real-time feedback from professional photographers. The challenge was to get a high-quality database of registered users for further direct communication.
  2. moVa. Belarus’ largest national mobile carrier velcom, has an ongoing strategy to support national culture and heritage. The challenge was to drive loyalty by creating a useful service for smartphone users that helps people to send messages in the Belarusian language, since the overwhelming majority of mobile devices didn’t have a Belarusian keyboard layout.

What were your company’s specific goals for the project?

In 2014, we had great in-house expertise for web development, but we had been looking for a partner in mobile app development that would meet the highest requirements of our clients. All the apps were a part of integrated advertising campaigns, and we needed the exceptional quality that could correspond to other instruments in the marketing mix.

SOLUTION

Can you tell me about the scope of the project (e.g., desired tasks to be completed)?

  1. DISCOVERMORE

Fingers put our idea through all the stages of development, design, and analysis, which includes user interface/user experience [UI/UX] design, prototyping, database and system architecture, and different kinds of testing. As a result, Fingers developed the DISCOVERMORE app on iOS and Android platforms with the following features:

  • registration,
  • taking photos,
  • adjusting filters (including dynamic ones),
  • photo sharing (through social networks),
  • notifications,
  • loyalty system (users can take pictures, participate in competitions, get bonus points, and win souvenirs),
  • getting scores from famous Belarusian photographers, etc.
  1. moVa

The scope of the project included prototyping and UI/UX design, development and testing, and analyzing the results with Google Analytics. The application allows users to:

  • write in Belarusian Cyrillic or Latin alphabet,
  • send messages to friends via SMS or social networks: Twitter, Vkontakte, Facebook,
  • copy the text to clipboard,
  • translate from Russian into Belarusian and copy the result to clipboard,
  • sign a petition to include the Belarusian language in the list of languages for iOS and OS X.

What was your process for selecting Fingers to work with?

During the first project, we addressed several potential partners. Fingers showed not only the proven expertise in portfolio, but also the proactivity to upgrade our ideas to improve potential results.

Can you give us a sense of the size of the project in dollar terms or even a price range?

It was in the $10,000-25,000 range.

When was the project started/completed?

The two projects lasted from 2014-2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What were the results of the project, and are there any statistics/metrics you can share?  What have they helped you achieve as a company?

  1. DISCOVERMORE: The project has successfully reached its KPIs, but unfortunately we can't give the exact numbers due to non-disclosure agreement terms.
  2. moVa: Thousands of Belarusians use the app every day; we have 7000+ active users monthly. The average rating in Google Play is 4.7, and it has held this position for 2 years! After the first year, the client decided to make moVa a pre-installed app on the devices it sells.

How did Fingers perform overall?

From the very first minutes of working with them, we felt that Fingers was a reliable partner and a team of professionals. They've met all of our expectations and performed on the top level.

When working with them, was there anything unique or special about them (compared to other companies that you may have worked with)?

We appreciate Fingers' proactive approach on every stage that helps to optimize applications' functionalities and saves budget and development time. 

Looking back on the project, is there any area where they could improve or you would do differently?

Fingers’ managers really work on improvement for any detail. If the first project had small issues on project management, then the second one was nearly perfect.
