We guide our clients to create apps.

We guide our clients to create simple and effective apps.

Your product is the hero and we are your guides.

Your product, team, and the business goal is our main focus. While we fashion ourselves as experts, we are not the hero in this story, you are. Our role is to guide you through the journey and deliver results.

Prior, proper, planning leads to great results.

Let us guide you to bring your ideas and market strategies to life. Our team uses best-in-class engineering practices to identify what we are building and set clear expectations on how we will deliver.

We are looking for partners to work together for a common goal.

App Development can quickly become a race to the bottom that benefits no one. Clients end up unhappy because the process was poor and the quality is lacking. We are different. We want to partner with you for an outcome that benefits both parties. Trust us like hundreds of other brands do every day to bring your idea to life. You won't regret it.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.
I’m the founder and CEO of Kite Gives, Inc. We provide a mobile payments platform for nonprofits.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Idle Fusion?

I engaged Idle Fusion to build the MVP of my product as a web and mobile application.

What were your goals for this project?

I needed a full-stack developer to create a platform based on my designs and to provide feedback throughout the project.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I had hired Matt (Founder, Idle Fusion) for a past project when we both worked at different companies. His leadership and his team’s work impressed me. I reached out to him after he announced on LinkedIn that he was looking for freelance work.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Matt built the web and iOS applications from scratch. We first ran a discovery phase to determine whether my budget could support a full build-out. It lasted a week thanks to his rapid work. I designed the mobile and web experiences. Matt used that prototype to architect the stack and create the front- and backend code bases. He also developed and tested its essential functionality. Key features include payment processing, search, editorial content management, logins, and account creation.

What was the team composition?

I only work with Matt.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

The project remains ongoing, but Idle Fusion has delivered high-quality work so far. I wouldn’t have a business without the MVP that Matt is building.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Matt and I established how we’d like to work together in the beginning. We have weekly calls to discuss progress and next steps, and we use Slack for immediate queries and issues. Matt provides video walkthrough of his progress. He offers feedback at every stage and experiments with improvements, but he never makes a change without first alerting me.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team’s communication, competence, and generosity stand out at every step. Matt has gone above and beyond to deliver high-quality work faster than I anticipated.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can’t think of any yet, but we're still in the early phases.
