BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I was a project director for 20 years for a company specialized in the health sector.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with FOONKIE MONKEY?

During my time there, specifically over the last seven years, we worked with FOONKIE MONKEY on the development of mobile apps.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They mainly developed mobile apps for both Android and iOS platforms, while also providing maintenance and support. The purpose of the apps is to allow customers to locate all the company’s service locations and to rate them. It also allows associated service providers to create a profile and a list of all the services they offer, which can also receive ratings.

What is the team composition?

They worked independently, but they’d come to work at our premises whenever we needed them. The team would usually range between two to six people.

How did you come to work with FOONKIE MONKEY?

We evaluated different suppliers for this specific project and decided on FOONKIE MONKEY because we knew they had worked for a local financial company, which we found very interesting.

How much have you invested in them?

We spent around $35,000.

They’re very honest, dedicated, and open to collaborating. If we had any issues, we could call them and they would be there, no matter what the time was. They were completely responsible and professional.

How did FOONKIE MONKEY perform from a project management standpoint?

We used a project management tool, and they always were very punctual. We had to make some adjustments at times because we didn’t always respect the exact dates we established at the beginning, but there were never any important delays. I’d say they met deadlines 95% of the time.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We weren’t very familiar with mobile apps and app development, but they guided us and helped us a lot during this process.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. The company has a very good relationship with them. I only have positive things to say.

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 an advisor at the Ministry of Finance of Colombia at the Budget Office. We are in charge of the transparency and citizen information strategy. One of the products available on our website is an economic transparency subsite. It provides all the public budget expenses information and lists people hired with public funding

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Foonkie Monkey?

In 2015, we started analyzing our existing platform and found it wasn’t intuitive and didn’t generate much traffic. We hired Foonkie Monkey to conduct a navigability study and develop an improved new platform that would generate more visits from users. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?
 
Our previous platform was limited to a web application. It had been developed on a Bootstrap library. Foonkie Monkey adapted our site for use on mobile phones. They merged it with Java and other technologies.

What is the team composition?

We initially worked with three people from Foonkie Monkey. As the project came along, we added a fourth resource near the end. 

How did you come to work with Foonkie Monkey?

We work closely with the IT Ministry who had partnered with Foonkie Monkey before. We took their team into consideration while looking for firms to assist us with this project. After conducting an evaluation, we selected them.

How much have you invested in them?

We spent around $23,000–$25,000 on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from March to October 2015. We made some adjustments at the end of the year and launched the final product by the beginning of 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We never had any complaints. In fact, we were quite pleased with the results Foonkie Monkey produced. We even spoke with them recently about drafting a new contract to make additional improvements to our site. In general, their work is of a high caliber. They offer rapid response times. We’ve only received positive comments from our users who are located all over the world. In particular, the platform is easy to navigate.  

How did Foonkie Monkey perform from a project management standpoint?

Foonkie Monkey kept us constantly informed via a project management tool that enabled us to communicate and review documents. It took a few additional days to finish the project, but that wasn’t a significant problem. They’re both pleasant to work with and skilled from a technical perspective. Their team gave our project a more human quality. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Foonkie Monkey possesses a level of technical knowledge that surpassed all our expectations. Working together has been an enlightening process for us.  They deftly leverage technologies they use in programming. We’ve had to make very complex adjustments, but they’ve done them with ease thanks to the flawless foundational product they built. 
 
Are there any areas they could improve?

My boss doesn’t like the colors they used in the design, but that’s a very subjective comment. Other people really enjoy the color scheme and find the appearance relaxing. Although the site might seem a bit static compared to other government sites in Latin America, lots of animation and movement is better suited to a marketing company. We trust the team’s consultation.
