What was the scope of their involvement?
Our business contracted LITSLINK exclusively for development services. They came on board to help us complete our app. We flew to Kiev to meet them in person and spent two days discussing how to rewrite the entire frontend within our strict two-week deadline.
Users can create accounts, browse volunteer opportunities, and sign up for activities at the touch of a button. Clicking on a project shows details about the mission including its purpose and when and where it will take place. Each completed volunteer project is added to the user’s profile, similar to a CV. The search function includes filters for location. We also implemented a blog.
LITSLINK used React Native to develop our app cross-platform for both iOS and Android. We sent them finalized mockups and concrete designs to use as a basis for the technical components. They wrote all the code and collaborated with our CTO, who coordinated the process from our side.
What is the team composition?
LITSLINK assigned two React Native developers to build our platform. Toward the end of the project, they added a third full-stack resource to fix the API issues. The project manager assigned the tasks we requested to the rest of the team. For the web app build, they assigned us two developers for the first month scaled down to one for the remainder.
How did you come to work with LITSLINK?
After becoming dissatisfied with our previous provider, we searched for a new agency. Our ideal partner would have several types of experts on staff to support each other. LITSLINK applied to our job through Upwork. After interviewing the team, we were happy to hire them.
How much have you invested with them?
We spent at least $50,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
This project with LITSLINK lasted from July–November 2018. We focused on development until the end of October. We’re still fixing bugs and plan to build more features in 2019 with a larger team. Previously, we developed a React Native web app for a nonprofit together in April 2018.
