Mucho App Image

Mucho App

Mucho curates the user’s food shopping list for any type of diet and taste through a wide variety of recipes. 

The goal was to launch the app for IOS. For this reason, our development team decided to use Objective-C and Swift, as it allowed us to launch

fast, while still using a solid framework.

Since we were designing for people who don’t have time to waste, we designed a simple interface that would put emphasis on the recipe photos. In this way, we are reaching the true food lovers, while also showing the strong brand identity.

Travel WiFi Image

Travel WiFi

There were two main challenges with TEP: differentiate it from the competition and make the website’s imagery reflect what was the company’s offer.

The experience had to match users’ expectations, avoiding the risks of being misunderstood for something it is not.

We applied our Product Design Process at an early stage and provided

all the development expertise needed to implement further data-focused adjustments that TEP needed to achieve their business goals.

Since its initial concept, the project relies heavy on a huge number of landing pages (targeted via google ads), a good checkout process and a flexible back-office to manage orders.

Our experienced software development team decided that Ruby on Rails was the best approach, due to its balance between flexibility and reach.

The product has been live and growing for several years.

Flux Plan Image

Flux Plan

Our client approached us to create an accounting and task management software.

The goal was to design a desktop app that could be sold and users getting more organised in their daily tasks.

We applied our Product Design Process to deliver the project implementation plan with milestones, effort and cost estimations.

CheckHApp Image

CheckHApp

CheckHApp is a consultancy company in the food sector that helps its clients complying with safety and hygiene regulations.

The client approached us to create a new iPad app for restaurants.

The goal was to allow its clients to register and manage compliance records digitally, instead of in paper (as they used to at the time).

It was essential to reduce users’

reluctance so two main design strategies were suggested by our UI/UX design team to achieve that.

On one hand, we created a workflow that demanded a minimal number of clicks and on the other hand a simple and fun look & feel.

NotaryCam Image

NotaryCam

NotaryCam allows to skip all the bureaucracy and get your notary needs easily out of the way.

Upload a document, connect through your webcam and electronically sign the document. 

Although it had the promise of simplifying notary needs, the website wasn’t aligned with the end goal. The challenge was to provide clean and trustworthy visuals while making the user experience as intuitive as possible.

The

problem was addressed by enrolling with the Product Owner and the team, in the Product Design Process.

The result was a clear design with simple illustrations and the right typography. All the relevant information was kept, but less overwhelming and better organised.

The product team was already used to WordPress and we kept the same platform.

In order to achieve a nicer front-end with low technical debt, our software developers delivered key elements, as React components.

Looks like a handy digital product? It truly is and the next can be yours!

We applied our 

Product Design Process and the resulting designs were implemented by the client’s side.

See how we can help you to design and develop a digital product your users will love.

Invisible Homes Image

Invisible Homes

Invisible Homes lets users sell and buy properties off-market, allowing sellers to keep their property value high and have their privacy kept while providing buyers the access to exclusive offers that match their needs.

Our UI/UX design team was

called to redesign the user onboarding area and user interfaces in order to increase engagement and accommodate new features. 

The information hierarchy should be intuitive, in order to allow users to quickly scrutiny the most relevant information from long lists of potential buyers and offers, keeping it easy to track the communication and status of each process.

Additionally, we had to find a way to communicate the platform dynamism and value to buyers, while keeping private the information about the properties.

At that point in time, I was responsible for global services and strategic pricing. I required a significant number of data points to make pricing decisions. We cramped the data into an Excel spreadsheet.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Imaginary Cloud supported with frontend and backend development, helping us to put our data together in a way that worked. We provided them with mockups. They built the frontend as a way to check the data consistency with each input. Their team helped us with processing activities and sure that the data quality and consistency were good.

What is the team composition?

We had a main point of content. I also kept in close contact with the project manager and the CEO of Imaginary Cloud.

How did you come to work with Imaginary Cloud?

What is the status of this engagement?

We started the project around 2014. Their work continues, but I left the function.

We used a tool to keep up with the project, which was completed on time. We had delays on our side, so we were happy to have them keeping the drum beating. We didn’t exceed the budget.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s impressive how they’ve been able to grow but also keep close to their customers. They grew and remained agile.

Imaginary Cloud focuses on the customer experience side of products. UX design is their key value proposition. UX design and development are part of their culture.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I’m not in a position to say what they could change.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I would advise them to say what they need and what they want. Imaginary Cloud will tell you if they can or cannot complete the project.

They were a development partner for a website we were working on for a client.

At the beginning of our engagement, we designed everything, but our partnership grew. We would connect them with clients and they took on more of the design aspect.

What is the team composition?

We worked with about five people, and I always talked to the owner of the company. He delegated everything else.

They’re very solution-driven, they’re trustworthy, and they always understand what the client wants. They’re very focused on delivery and they plan every step of the journey. For me, I find that very helpful. They take care of everything. I know they’ll deliver good work on time.

How did Imaginary Cloud perform from a project management standpoint?

They accomplished all the deadlines on time. They planned and carried out every step of the project roadmap. They also explained everything to us in a simple way, which made it easy to communicate with clients.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a social platform for fitness based in Los Angeles. I’m the co-founder and CEO of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Imaginary Cloud?

We needed to increase our development capacity.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We hired one frontend developer from Imaginary Cloud who works in React Native. Primarily, he works on the mobile platform but also our mobile-optimized web app to an extent. The developer’s part of our team but is based in Portugal.

What is the team composition?

We work with one developer but the CEO of Imaginary Cloud’s our account manager.

How did you come to work with Imaginary Cloud?

A colleague recommended Imaginary Cloud.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $100,000 with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in April 2019 and the work’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve worked with a number of different developers over the years. The developer provided by Imaginary Cloud has definitely been one of the best that we've engaged. He’s a skilled programmer and a great member of the team. He’s committed, motivated, and easy to work with. 

How did Imaginary Cloud perform from a project management standpoint?

We use JIRA and follow an Agile methodology. We use a range of remote working tools such as Slack and Google Hangouts. The estimates that were provided by the developer were accurate.

The developer has great communication skills and is available despite the time zone difference. He came to Los Angeles to meet our team. Imaginary Cloud was supportive of that trip and covered some of the costs associated with the travel to California.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Imaginary Cloud has a good understanding of business realities. We haven’t had problems when we needed to reduce hours or pause a project for a while. That’s a big difference compared to other companies that are more rigid with the terms of a contract.

Imaginary Cloud’s forthcoming and understanding, making them a good partner. They’re a premium agency in terms of outsourced services, but you get the quality that you pay for.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Our platform’s developed for Android and iOS devices. It’s possible but we could've provided those devices. It’s a minor issue, but it would’ve been nice for the agency to provide a developer with testing devices for both iOS and Android.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Rely on their expertise. Be open-minded and establish a good relationship with the company.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the IT manager of a vehicle rental company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Imaginary Cloud?

We had a very old ERP that I've been maintaining for two years. We decided to look for an external company to develop a new one for us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed our ERP from scratch, doing the front and backend development, the admin panel, and the migration from the old ERP system. They used React, Node.js and MariaDB on top of Linux.

We provided them the old ERP system and gave them full access. I designed the full database structure, and they developed on top of it. We now have three git repositories. One is for the booking process, another for the frontend of the admin, and another one for the API and backend.

What is the team composition?

I was in contact with Tiago (CEO, Imaginary Cloud) and Ricardo (Developer, Imaginary Cloud), who was the main developer. A project manager from their site also joined during the process, but I was mostly dealing with the developer.

How did you come to work with Imaginary Cloud?

I know them personally from many years ago. We compared their proposal with two other companies’ proposals. We liked Imaginary Cloud’s proposal the best because the technology was good, we were geographically near them and their price was lower than the others.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent €100,000 euros (approximately $109,000 USD) so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in August 2018 and the work is finished.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Their work is finished, and we are about to put it into production. The ERP is stable, fast, and does what we wanted.

How did Imaginary Cloud perform from a project management standpoint?

They use Redmine and gave me access. They also gave me access to their internal hour reporting tool. We created tickets together and checked them on a weekly basis. I could see exactly what they were working on and what their next steps would be.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I really liked the migration process. It was a hard task because the old ERP was almost prehistoric, but there were almost no bugs. It took more than a month and it went well.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The assigned developer was senior, but he needed some coaching regarding what to do next with the features. It’s not their fault. If we had given them better specs, it would have been easier.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They always put extra effort into project management. If you don’t have a full-time person to dedicate to the project, don’t skip the project management side of things. Don’t pay only for the developer. Pay a bit more to have project management also.

They’re building a configurable frontend that has the ability to display any type of interaction that a contact center or agent would have.

If a customer wanted to query a bill or change their address, the product would be able to do so. Everything has to be configurable, so there’s no bespoke coding. Imaginary Cloud has created this entire architecture and designed it for large user populations.

They also provide frontend API services that connect the browser to software-robotics process automation. The product is highly encrypted as well. Essentially, everything is designed by us and fulfilled by them.

What is the team composition?

It depends, but we work with an average of 5–6 individuals. The most we’ve ever worked with was ten people.

How did you come to work with Imaginary Cloud?

One of our directors heard about them through a personal contact.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested about £1 million (approximately $1.3 million USD) so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our ongoing partnership began around January 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Their service is superb and the quality of the deliverables has always been extremely high. There are very few significant bugs, but that’s inevitable. Overall, the code, architecture, design, and build of the product are all top-quality. The UI and core infrastructure are sophisticated.

The platform has helped us grow significantly. We just signed a global resell deal with a very large vendor. Imaginary Cloud’s delivery has helped us win millions of pounds worth of contracts. Their team is intrinsic to our success.

How did Imaginary Cloud perform from a project management standpoint?

We use an agile methodology and have very efficient development operations. What’s more, communication is always quick. Our teams mostly collaborate through GitHub and Slack. We’ve never had problems with language barriers or documentation. They deliver on time and help in our design and feedback.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re equally as capable as some of the biggest development names out there. Imaginary Cloud is a true partner, and we see them as part of our team. We don’t have any issues whatsoever.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The only thing we ought to be demanding of them is more resources because we’re growing so rapidly. We see them as a key part of our team going forward. They’re cost-effective for their capability and we’re hoping they can scale with us.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Make sure you understand what project management methodology you want to use. We’ve created a great agile mechanism of working with Imaginary Cloud, but every company is different. Treat them at arms-length if you will, but I suggest having them as your informal internal development team.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.


I’m the CEO of an industrial software company operating in heavy industries such as oil, gas, and refining. In addition to providing environmental compliance software and services, we perform laser scanning and mapping to solve industry challenges.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Imaginary Cloud?


We engaged Imaginary Cloud to develop a web application based on an MVP. We wanted to render detailed, 3D industrial maps in a web browser using an open source framework. Since we saw traction with the market with our demo, we brought on Imaginary Cloud to turn the prototype into a completed solution. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?


While I provided the initial code, they optimized the solution by rewriting all of it. They performed front-and-backend design and development.

They were able to render the multi-terabyte point clouds in a web browser, integrating the solution with Google Maps and a Global Information System for geo-spacial views. They’re layering detailed information on top of the maps to support AR applications. They’ve even built advanced data structures so users can filter what they wish to see.

Technologies used include a Node.js server and a React frontend framework. We use Postscript for a database hosted on Google App Engine. Point clouds are rendered using WebGL, and we use a Google Maps API to access a map view of the model.

What is the team composition?


We work with two developers full time, while design and UX personnel provide support as needed.

How did you come to work with Imaginary Cloud?


We researched vendors online, including looking at reviews on Clutch.co. We talked with a dozen different companies, but I couldn’t find one that matched what I was looking for. A vendor I contacted recommended that I speak with Imaginary Cloud and connected me with the CEO.

Imaginary Cloud produced an excellent code review and they were willing to act as an extension of my staff, using our project management tools for regular communication. As a technical stakeholder, I was looking for a team that would involve me throughout the entire process, and Imaginary Cloud offered that. 

What is the status of this engagement?


We began working together in August 2018 and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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


Customers have been blown away by what they’ve seen. They’ve delivered a quality solution using cutting-edge technology. 

How did Imaginary Cloud perform from a project management standpoint?


They did a good job defining the coding standards and all the design elements up front. Since then, we’ve only needed to check in. They’ve got a good process and system established where I never feel burdened by additional costs for regular check-ins or advanced expertise. 

As they all work in the same office, they easily collaborate with eachother. Whenever I ask questions, they answer quickly and provide solutions accordingly.

What did you find most impressive about them?


The team has advanced expertise, and they were willing to dig into complex, emerging technologies and successfully use it in the solution. 

It’s clear that the staff is well supported by professional development workshops, performance reviews, and benefits. The team’s positive internal culture has supported a personable business relationship. 

Are there any areas they could improve?


I can’t think of anything I wish they were doing better.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?


I’ve had a good experience because I started out with a good, high-level understanding of what the product should be. At the same time, I’ve learned that trusting their expertise is often the right decision, even if it contrasts with my initial thoughts.

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of Globsurveys. We sell SaaS products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Imaginary Cloud?

We wanted to create a platform for banks to gather customer feedback through. In several countries, banks seek insight through phone calls and email, which result in minimal content. To help us develop a solution to this problem, we hired Imaginary Cloud.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Imaginary Cloud developed our app. Their team worked on the front- and backend, including building the dashboard and providing technical support. They created the platform to function as a digital feedback assessment form.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in March 2017, and the project is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since beginning the project with Imaginary Clouds, we’ve gained potential clients worldwide. We’ve been able to establish contact with several banks and start the sales cycle. Currently, we’re moving forward to the next phases of marketing and improving the platform. Without their team, we couldn’t have made any of this progress.

How did Imaginary Cloud perform from a project management standpoint?

I speak with the CEO weekly, and the meetings consist of the entire team plus my clients, if necessary. They pay close attention to the details and have a rigorous approach. They’re professional and always hit deadlines.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team, deliverables, and overall experience have all been fantastic— I couldn’t ask for anything more. They are always available for questions and fulfill all of our needs. Everything is done very well, and I’m not looking for a different provider.

Are there any areas they could improve?

At this point in the project, everything has been great. I can’t think of anything for them to improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Bring them a good idea and Imaginary Cloud will help you find success. They’re willing to invest their time in companies with solid concepts.
