The Review
Feedback summary: 

Technology updates are ahead of schedule, and the internal team is already capable of overseeing the app’s well-being. Foxbox features a personable staff, and as a smaller firm, they are able to offer an individualized experience, fostering a healthy and successful partnership.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the CTO at Home Chef, a meal kit subscription service. We send prepackaged, pre-portioned ingredients to your door.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Foxbox?

We needed to upgrade our mobile application and our mobile presence. Our next generation designs were complete, but we needed assistance implementing the technological elements we created into our app. Additionally, we asked Foxbox to train our in-house team in managing the application.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We asked Foxbox to be the technical architect of the mobile app. We wanted the code to be set up in a way that is sustainable and maintainable. Following that, our in-house team would implement our designs, conduct testing, and introduce the app back into the App Store. Along the way, we relied on Foxbox to teach our team the language and the framework that we’re using to build our app.

The app is available for Android and iOS using React Native. Users are able to traverse their accounts, view weekly meal options, and select the meals they’d like delivered. We also included a framework that allows us to do A/B testing within the mobile app so that we can measure the results of certain interactions.

What is the team composition?

I am unsure of the entire team size, but I only worked with their founder.

How did you come to work with Foxbox?

They came as a network referral to our VP of engineering.

How much have you invested with them?

We anticipate spending between $50,000-$60,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began in July 2018 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our work remains ongoing, but we are ahead of schedule in our development. We’re moving at a strong pace, and our team is learning a lot.

How did Foxbox perform from a project management standpoint?

We use GitHub internally and with Foxbox. From a communication perspective, they’ve been great about providing updates through email and noting specific milestones.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their knowledge is extremely deep in a fairly new technology. They have worked well with people, which we valued because of the mentoring aspect. We didn't want an agency that would only come in and code for us. We wanted an agency who would work with our team, and they've done that well. They're a boutique agency, so we get a personalized experience, which has helped us develop a deep partnership.

Any advice for potential customers?

Be very specific about your needs and be transparent about them. That way they can get a strong understanding of if they can help you.
