What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
The application is live and 95% of reviewers gave it five stars in the App Store.
They went above and beyond in a lot of ways. The designer built the visual design of the screens, but there were formatting issues. Goji Labs went above and beyond and rectified those issues. They also went beyond the scope by adding animation to it, which enhances the app experience exponentially. It looks phenomenal. I am particularly impressed with how they made it work across several display sizes. I tried it on multiple iPhone sizes, and it looks great on all of them.
When I initially came up with the idea, I figured it would be simple since the iPhone knows where you are, and I thought we could just tap into that data. As we dug into it, we realized that the data that comes from iOS requires a lot of cleaning and standardizing, so we had to write algorithms to determine the person’s behaviors. It captures complicated outputs to differentiate between driving, stationary, biking, and walking, depending on speed. That was an extensive, complex endeavor, and they totally nailed it. I’m in awe of how accurate it is. I’m especially grateful for the amount of time and effort that they spent. The Goji Labs team is exceptionally creative and proactive in troubleshooting, which made all the difference. They’re my go-to group for mobile development efforts.
How did Goji Labs perform from a project management standpoint?
Their project management is excellent. They met the timing requirements and did an excellent job with communication. David responds quickly and communicates clearly. He takes the time to explain technical things and my options well. We used Slack, email, and Pivotal Tracker.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Their consultative approach is most impressive. They have a partnership mentality and helped me make decisions. The product experience, the timing, and the price were impressive.
Are there any areas they could improve?
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
I recommend engaging them earlier in the process versus later. By talking to them before all the screens were created by the designer, we were able to make changes and save a lot of time and headache.
