What was the scope of their involvement?
Global Vincitore discussed and troubleshooted my idea with me, and helped me get it out into the market. They first made a logo and chose a color scheme for the app, and they helped me choose a hybrid coding language for it.
The app has a swiping feature, and it matches people based on common food tastes. It also computes proximity to another user and shows it in minutes, not physical distance. The app has a sort of tastebud text messenger, where users can chat and search for restaurants at the same time without leaving the chat window. A user can look at a restaurant’s details, reviews, and pictures, and they can also order an Uber in that window.
What is the team composition?
Most of my communication has been with Nilang (Co-Founder), a couple of his managers, and a designer. Nilang puts me in touch with anyone I need within his company.
How did you come to work with Global Vincitore LLP?
I used Google to find a site that listed development companies. It might’ve been Clutch. At the time, I was working with contractors in LA, but the project was taking too much time, and I needed to get it to a point where I could launch it. Global Vincitore was affordable and they had an office in Charlotte, North Carolina, where I was planning to move. They also spoke the same Indian language as me. I reached out to someone there, and we had a lot of conversations before starting the project.
I had an existing Swift app made by someone else, but I told Global Vincitore that I wanted to build a hybrid version in order to get a feel from the public before I put much more money in it. We got along quite well communication-wise, and I was able to work with the team easily.
How much have you invested with them?
The cost so far is around $13,000, but it’s going to go up to $20,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
I started working with Global Vincitore around September 2019, and we started development in January 2020. The app is done, and we’re in the testing phase now. We lost sometime during the COVID-19 lockdown.
We’ve submitted it to the App Store now, and we’re waiting to see how it goes. We’re still working together, and the next phase is hopefully starting soon.
