What was the scope of their involvement?
They worked solely on our mobile applications. We prepared a specifications document for them. Regarding the new version, they’ve been responsible for preparing wireframes, graphic designs, and the whole onboarding process. They were completely responsible for the development, from A to Z. There was a lot of input and consultation from their side.
The core feature of the product is the API integration with our system. It gives users the ability to seek new plans, to go through particular meals, review recipes and nutritional values, and to see shopping lists. The app also integrates with a calendar through which can schedule meetings with our nutritionist.
What is the team composition?
I’ve been in contact with Robert (President, GoApps), with whom I’ve made decisions on the project, pricing, payment, and staff. There was a project manager from our side involved, while they assigned a graphic designer and one or two developers, depending on the platform.
How did you come to work with GoApps?
When I started the business, I didn’t have my own IT resources. I was working with external IT firms, and I wasn’t happy with that. I finally managed to find two developers but was still lacking mobile development competencies.
I looked on websites that listed IT development companies and sent out a brief to some. We had a meeting with GoApps and I checked their references. We had a good conversation and they seemed trustworthy, so we started working together.
How much have you invested with them?
The cost of the new version was $20,000. The previous one was a bit cheaper as it was less complicated. Overall, we’ve spent over $30,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We currently have 2–3 ongoing projects, including the patient platform. The project is ongoing, but we're not putting any pressure on it.
