Thoughtspot App for the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health

To complement the pre-existing website mythoughtspot.ca, Iversoft was asked to develop an app, Thought Spot, to address the need for post-secondary students wanting to locate and access mental health services. The features of the app allow users to view locations on an interactive map, filter locations by specific interests, see location details, rate and comment on places, and add their sites of interest. It was critical to

both Iversoft and CAMH that the app looks and feels right in the hands of their targeted youth, so user testing was employed in validating potential interactions and approaches.

The app’s design accommodates differences in mapping best practices across both Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android Platforms. In the end, Thought Spot’s clear and intuitive design made it so that common actions can be accomplished with a few taps and data is shared across the website’s two platforms, which creates a seamless experience.

AR Tourism Experience for Hydro Ottawa on iOS and Android Image

AR Tourism Experience for Hydro Ottawa on iOS and Android

Looking to refine a vision for an experiential tour of the location, Iversoft and Banfield worked closely together to create a mobile application, Visit Chaudière Falls, to augment visitors’ experience. The augmented reality (AR) app allows visitors to trigger additional content at various points throughout Chaudière Falls, prompted by location markers and on-site signage. Visitors can experience a virtual element to the tour

by following the curated content on the app as they pass select landmarks like the Ring Dam, the Ottawa River, and the safe Eel passage. Hydro Ottawa used the application to showcase the depth of content on the site’s history, including the Indigenous significance of the land and the environmental work of the facility, giving visitors an immersive experience to a beautiful tourist spot. The app has given Hydro Ottawa a conversation point with residents and visitors that extends beyond usage rates and is free for users.

University of Ottawa's BioLingo Web App Image

University of Ottawa's BioLingo Web App

BioLingo was a two-phase project implemented by Iversoft’s design and development teams to create a custom-built web application, complete with engaging branding and graphics. The application’s user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) were designed to ensure students could intuitively navigate the system and participate with ease. Biology students can now test their knowledge of the course material using a variety of

multiple-choice trivia questions. In order to encourage full participation, BioLingo is gamified with a point system and competitive leaderboard that users can access in their account dashboards. Iversoft’s application addressed the need for a comprehensive and repetitive tool help with memorization.

Launched in January 2018, BioLingo saw immediate use shortly after launch. Individual user accounts are linked to students’ uOttawa email addresses and allow for faculty to track individual engagement and participation for course evaluation through the platform’s built in data tracking of quiz results and usage rates. Iversoft’s custom developed content management system (CMS) was designed to give professors a user-friendly experience while creating custom test sets. Students can gain access to the trivia game questions and flashcard practice tests on their desktop or mobile web browsers and can be accessed in English or French.

Bilingual Education App for GAPC Entertainment Image

Bilingual Education App for GAPC Entertainment

Iversoft developed the Math Storytime app; a unique web and mobile application built to engage, educate, and excite young learners. Our developers created the custom software, coding, framework, and functionalities for the app for both iOS and Android devices. The app was designed around the Ontario education curriculum to best target children’s math performance through narrative and was launched in early 2018 for parents and

caregivers. In order to ensure the experience was fun and engaging for both parents and kids, Iversoft was conscious of developing a friendly and intuitive UX for users. The app was designed to be compliant with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) standards and is available in both English and French.

Following the launch, GAPC continued to work with Iversoft after the app’s launch, engaging the digital marketing team to support early user acquisition efforts. Marketing developed a strategic initiative to attract new app downloads and regular users.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

After the app’s launch, a charity has reported a 10% increase in yearly donations with 28% of its participants downloading and using the solution. User engagement was also high, with the average customer logging in an average of 36 to 40 times before each charity event.

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

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company.

We're a SAS platform for charities to host their events and do fundraising. We operate with big browsers, mobile Web and mobile applications. Iversoft works on the mobile apps.

What is your role and responsibilities?

I’m the product manager for the platform, so I’m responsible for the overall roadmap, vision, features, and functionality of the Artez platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was the strategy behind the app?

The app is for fundraisers to register for an event that they can download, and keep up to date on their fundraising progress, reach out to friends and family for donations, and so on. The main thing that we looked to address was user engagement, making sure people liked it, and were using it on a regular basis to track their fundraising. The more engaged they were with the app, the more engaged they would be with fundraising itself. The other aspect was a communication channel from the charity to the fundraiser, making sure that any pertinent messages were being passed along to the fundraiser, and ensuring they’re aware of where the money is going. It also passes along information about the event.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

In this case, they worked on development for Android as well as iOS apps. That included integration to third parties for things like push notifications. All of the design and support is done in-house by our company.

What was your process for selecting Iversoft Solutions?

That is outside of my hands. I believe they were here when I started.

Can you provide a ballpark dollar figure for the size of the work that they’ve done for you?

It's fairly large across the two apps. With our most recent release, the work was in the range of 100 man-hours across the different platforms and the integrations we had to do.

When was the latest milestone completed for that work?

The last major project was completed in January of 2013, but we have used them for minor projects and things like iOS 7 updates. They are definitely still engaged on a smaller basis.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Do you have any statistics or metrics to track improvement from the project?

An Australian client was the first big organization to use the new app platform. In overall fundraising, they saw year-over-year growth of 10 percent, which is really good. I believe that 28 percent of their event participants actually downloaded the app and logged in to it. On average, app users came back to the app 36 or 40 times in the three-month period. Every couple of days, they were logging into the app. That is a big deal because we launched it in January, and this particular event was in the middle of March. There wasn’t much time between the app launch and the event, and the fact that people were logged in on average so much meant that they were engaged with it.

Do you still feel you selected the right platform for the app?

Absolutely. Android and iOS meet our needs.

How did Iversoft Solutions perform throughout the work?

They were great. They were always quick to respond, very helpful, very willing to make changes as necessary if there was a change in the original scope. They were very adaptive and perfect for the project. That’s why we continue to work with them.

Is there anything unique about them that really makes them stand out, compared to other companies?

The engagement that they show in wanting to make it a success and really understanding the use is unique. They provided feedback on anything that came up, whether it was a design issue, functionality or making suggestions. The overall engagement to deliver on the project, and to make sure the project is a success was strong. That included working on the defined scope or making suggestions on how it could be better.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or that you might do differently?

I don’t think so. Everything has been very smooth, and I have nothing but positives to say.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Iversoft has worked on over 15 projects over the past 5 years. The team provides remarkable performance, excelling particularly in the documentation aspect of each project. Iversoft is recommended for any mobile development endeavor.

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

BACKGROUND

Please provide some background on your company.

We’re essentially an agency. We work with clients directly, and then outsource a portion of that work to partners such as Iversoft.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your main objective in working with Iversoft?

Well, I’ve used them for many projects. Usually, however, it’s development.

Is it basically anytime you need mobile development, they’re the ones that you call up?

Correct.

How did you originally find Iversoft, and choose to work with them?

It’s been five years now. Originally, they were referred to me by a colleague.

SOLUTION

Could you tell me about the scope of a typical project that you worked with them on, and what parts they might be involved in?

They’re all over that map. There’s probably been 15 over the last five years. But it’s straight deep-dive, large-scale mobile apps.

Do they handle the design, and the development of the app?

Yes, end to end as well as a little bit of account management.

What operating systems have they developed for you?  iOS or Android?

Both of those two.

Do they actually interact with you and the client?

Depending on the need sometimes, yes. But, when they do, they’re always great.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

When working with them, is there anything that you found to be unique or special compared to other developers that you’ve worked with?

They’re very thorough, especially in the documentation, which is always important for our clients.

When working with them, is there anything that you would do differently or think they could improve on?

No. We’ve never had a bad experience.

Do you think you could sum up your experience with them in a sentence or two?

Just outstanding, intense solutions in the mobile space.
