What was the scope of their involvement?
We work very closely in one of the leading sex therapists in Silicon Valley, and she has been working with our team to describe what sex therapy looks like offline—the exercises they give to patients, the way they assess people, and how they figure out how to help.
The designers from Intent has been working on how to translate that into the UX/UI design. In conjunction with that, their engineers are building the design for the platform. They’ve been instrumental in bringing this product to life.
At the moment, the app is only for iOS and we’re hoping to work on Android in the coming month. They built it from the ground up. They used some of the design elements from an older version of the app, but they pretty much rebuilt it from scratch.
What is the team composition?
The core team is comprised of three engineers, a UX designer, a UI designer, and a QA tester. Then we’ve worked with product and project managers and researchers.
How did you come to work with Intent?
We went out to our investor network and asked for a recommendation. We received recommendations for about 10 different companies. Several of those were eliminated because of availability or pricing. We assessed about five agencies in depth, and they went through quite a rigorous process. Our previous engineering team assessed their code base, looked at their portfolio, assessed how we would work together based on time zone, and price, obviously.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent between $100,000–$120,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with them in March 2020 and it’s ongoing.
