Social network App Image

Social network App

OVERVIEW

MUSH is a cross-platform social media mobile app that allows mom-users to find friends with kids of a certain age. The app operates as a sort of mix between Tinder and Facebook in that it has a convenient and intuitive interface.

CHALLENGE

As MUSH founders are both experienced moms, they realized that all moms should have access to a free and easy way to make

friends. They turned to LITSLINK with an idea of a mom-focused app.

SOLUTION

In the beginning, we created a cost-effective solution: The app that operates as a social platform. As soon as our team launched the MVP, the business model was successfully validated. After the launch app went viral and we scaled it fast, migrated to React Native technology that suits the app’s needs perfectly.

It took us 2 years of intense work to guide MUSH from idea to the Top-1 rated App on the UK Apple App Store.

Marketplace for travelers Image

Marketplace for travelers

OVERVIEW

MySquire solution offers instant online guided tours on demand. It consists of 2 main parts: a web platform for service providers and a cross platform mobile app for travelers.

CHALLENGE

The Startup founders reached out to LITSLINK to create an app that will instantly connect them with the required experts online during trips

abroad.

SOLUTION

LITSLINK team developed 2 products that work as one:

MySquire web platform: A freelance website for travel service providers. It allows Tour Guides, Translators, and many others to offer their services to the travelers and gain money remotely.

MySquire mobile app shows travelers all available service providers on a scalable online map. Users are free to choose anyone to start working with via chat, audio or video call.

LITSLINK implemented a MPV for MySquire in a very short time. 

Swiping feature App Image

Swiping feature App

OVERVIEW

Coursematch is a mobile application with a swiping feature like Tinder has. It aimed at helping high-school students to get the information about the nearest universities.

CHALLENGE

The challenge was about creating an informative and highly functional application for both iOS and Android platforms that would cater to the thousands of app’s subscribers in the

Educational field in an interactive and modern manner.

SOLUTION

LITSLINK’s team presented a high performance and customizable application with a number of features, such as

- detailed info about the apprenticeship opportunities,

- personal/group chat options,

- finding the best accommodation option nearby, and many more.

The app was launched in 2016 for Android devices. In September 2017, it was rebuilt from scratch using React Native & Redux cross-platform technologies.

AI photo & video App Image

AI photo & video App

OVERVIEW

Toolook works as a unique combination of marketplace and AI photo&video editing service app available both for Android and iOS platforms.

CHALLENGE

Our Customer had an idea for a mobile application that supports people’s interest in photography by providing custom drawn images and video editing with the help of AI technology.

 

SOLUTION

LITSLINK built a powerful AI editing app with a scrolling gallery, correct image cropping functionalities and a variety of effects. Toolook became the first app in the world that implemented real time AI video streaming filters.

Additionally, we made a Web-based platform for professional photo editors, so users were able to order any effect from the app’s gallery just in 2 clicks, and wait while a professional handcrafts their photo.

Toolook got several mln downloads on both app stores shortly after its launch.

E-learning platform App Image

E-learning platform App

OVERVIEW

Educative is a comprehensive online platform that combines an e-commerce functionality, a full-fledged marketplace and a complex e-learning portal all in one place.

CHALLENGE

Our Customer is a provider of interactive courses for software engineers. They were looking for a team to develop a web platform that would facilitate the e-learning process by providing

seamless client data and activity management. The solution had to include a module for users to register and subscribe to various e-learning services.

SOLUTION

The platform had to be massive to contain all the features we were thinking about, but yet smooth.

The developed solution represents a cloud-based web platform, where people can create their own courses for a global audience of programmers, share knowledge with like-minded people. 

Additionally, the portal is integrated with optimal payment methods.

Feedback summary: 

LITSLINK shows passion for creating a quality end product and works proactively to achieve results. Quick response times make them easy to work with, and they readily adjust to the unpredictable demands of an emerging technology.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a virtual reality, augmented reality, and artificial intelligence company that builds intelligent holograms to detect human user's emotions, biometrics, speech patterns and other information. Our business uses this technology to better understand human learning.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with LITSLINK?

We're a startup with a limited number of engineers in-house. We needed junior level engineers to construct our AR/VR software MVP and provide website development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We sat down to coordinate logistics and the specifications our software needed to include. From here, LITSLINK found engineers qualified to work in this relatively new field and build the MVP.

They also created a website for the product and worked to correct any bugs.

What is the team dynamic?

Their senior manager is our main point of contact, and he does a great job coordinating the project. We started with one engineer who is extremely talented and adjusted quickly to the demands of this new technology, and we now have over 10 developers engaged with the project.

How did you come to work with LITSLINK?

We found them through UpWork.com. I posted our requirements and one of their engineers reached out to us since they had recently hired a new AR/VR developer.

How much have you invested with them?

Over $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began in September 2016 and the project is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I don't have any quantitative measurements at this time, but I will say that it’s been great working with LITSLINK and they’re always responsive to our needs. It’s easy to give cost and scheduling estimates for traditional web or mobile app development, but LITSLINK consistently acclimates to our unpredictable situation and makes proper adjustments.

They sometimes go over the deadline simply because we’re working with new technology, but they always offer helpful solutions to get us back on track.

How did LITSLINK perform from a project management standpoint?

We’ve used a number of tools to coordinate, including Trello, Jira, and Pivotal Tracker. Almost all communication is done through Slack, though we occasionally use Skype.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They really care about the end product. Their engineers proactively work long hours to improve the product and remove any bugs, and they even touch base during the holidays to make sure the product is functioning properly. We've worked with engineers in the past who only care about finishing the job, but LITSLINK actually cares about the quality of the end product, which is fantastic.

They were also actively engaged and contributed new ideas to improve the product, rather than simply following our directions.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The AR/VR team's overall performance is great. Strictly speaking, there is still room for improvement in term of efficiency, scheduling, and meeting deadlines for web development.

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 founder of a social network app where moms can meet other moms nearby.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with LITSLINK?

We needed to build the hybrid application from scratch.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We provided the design and LITSLINK did the frontend and backend development. They started the work and checked in with us along the way. We had someone helping us on our side in London and they’re in Kiev. Since building the app, we’ve worked with them to optimize it and add new features. They’ve been part of our team for 18 months.

The app is like a friend or dating site—users can log on, create a profile, and then be matched with other moms. Our app works via a fairly robust database with a complicated matching algorithm. This was a key feature that was challenging to get right. We worked with APIs, which helped, but LITSLINK helped with researching and choosing the best option. They helped us take an idea, build it, and make it a reality. There are notifications and messaging as well.

We launched the app last spring, and since then we’ve raised more money. We did most of the launch work ourselves, and LITSLINK provided testing for different versions. We now have a head of product involved, so we very rarely work with LITSLINK directly on our ideas. They deal with our tech team now in London.

How did you come to work with LITSLINK?

A friend of ours, who is a CTO of a large company, recommended them. We looked at other companies in London and India. We didn’t only look at experience. We had very little money so we were building an MVP.

We gave them the scope and they came back to us with a price. We were new to this and didn’t have much to compare it to, so we were happy to go with them based on the recommendation.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in December 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We get bug reports since we launched the MVP. We’re constantly optimizing. They’re very good at fixing anything that comes up right away.

How did LITSLINK perform from a project management standpoint?

They did pretty well. There were a couple of times when they didn’t meet my expectation, but on the whole, we were happy with them. The project manager is our main point of contact, and we communicate via email and Slack. We also use JIRA as part of the project.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I don’t have experience with other providers, but they’re engaged and take part in what we’re doing. They care about our product, and they work very hard for us.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there

I’m the co-founder and general manager of Wow-How Studio, an agile-minded and seasoned team of digital designers, visual artists, video producers, animators, script and content writers, 3D modelers, project managers, and VR [virtual reality] and AR [augmented reality] experts. We grouped together to establish a 1-stop shop for visualizing ideas.

Our production team includes over 30 talented experts with more than 10 years of experience. Our clients include Mercedes-Benz, Weimei, Amore Beds, and others. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with LITSLINK?

We were seeking a development company that could implement our website from scratch. We needed to establish a web presence that could present our skills and capabilities through our design and production studio’s high-quality content. We had rather tough requirements for frontend quality as well as performance. We also required a CMS [content management system] with some custom management options due to specific business requirements. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

LITSLINK provided development services that included both frontend and backend development, SEO, development operations [DevOps], and technical support for Wow-How.com. Ruby on Rails was used for the backend and CMS, while HTML/CSS and JavaScript were used on the frontend.

How did you come to work with LITSLINK?

We chose LITSLINK from among several companies, mostly because their management team showed a good understanding of our business and proposed a solution and extra features that addressed our business needs well. Their pricing and payment policy was also rather flexible.

What is the team dynamic?

The project involved 6 people (a backend developer, 2 frontend developers, a QA person, a DevOps person, and a project manager) for the first iteration and 5 people (a backend developer, a frontend developer, a QA person, a DevOps person, and the project manager) for the second version.

How much have you invested with them?

Our current spending has exceeded $15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The first version of the site was finished in April 2016. The second version was deployed in June 2017. LITSLINK continues to provide supervision and technical support for the site.  

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We were very satisfied with the results. We received a tailor-made web presence and presented our cases successfully. We received a lot of positive feedback from our clients on the site, and the SEO done by LITSLINK helped attract at least 4 major clients.

How did LITSLINK perform from a project management standpoint?

Thanks to the dedicated project manager from LITSLINK, we didn’t have any major issues with project management. Releases happened on time, and the team responded quickly whenever we found bugs.  

What did you find most impressive about them?

We appreciated their level of business understanding and dedication.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No.

BACKGROUND

Please provide us with a brief description of your company.

Age of Craft produces hand-made medieval weapons, armor suits, and costumes. All our products are authentic, based on archeological evidence and historical records. Armor and weapons are certified by HMBIA Sports Federation and provide excellent protection for sportsmen. We sell our products in 64 countries and sponsor the annual HMB championship – Battle of The Nations. Our range includes over 100 products some of which are true pieces of art.

What is your role at the company?

I am the CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was the business challenge that you were trying to address? What was the goal of the partnership?

We needed a new web-store that could address several business goals. We needed excellent presentation of our premium goods - visuals, videos, and authenticity proofs. We needed mobile friendliness because 30% of visits come from mobile. We wanted an easy to use shop for both clients and our managers. We were also looking to implement additional services such as delivery estimation and tracking, plus new payment systems. Finally, we wanted good SEO fundamentals and easy ways to conduct social media marketing.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of the project?

The defined scope included UX/UI design for the shop, back-end and front-end development, mobile layout/optimization, SEO optimization, and content migration.

We did not limit potential applicants to a particular tech stack but asked them them to defend their proposed technologies. The technologies selected were: Magento for the shop CMS and Java Script for some visual features.

What was your process for selecting this company to work with? Why did you choose them over others?

We made requested quotes from 3 companies. Our partner, a content development company, recommended Litslink as an experienced web development company, so we included them in our shortlist. met and debriefed all companies and them discussed their proposal. Litslink's was the best.

Can you give us a general estimate of the size of the project in terms of dollars and manpower?

The project involved 5 people and cost over USD $12,000.

What was the timeline of the project?

The project was implemented in April to June 2016. SEO tasks are still in progress.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What were the results of the project?

As a result, we received a web-platform that exceeded our expectations and was much better quality than the content that we had had at the time. We decided to postpone the release until we create enough high-quality content. Litslink not only produced the store quickly but showed deep involvement in our marketing. Specialists proposed some great features our audience will love.

How does the company perform from a project management standpoint?

Deadlines were met perfectly. Estimations were quite accurate.

When working with this company is there anything that sets them apart compared to other partners you may have worked with?

What sets them apart is their business and consumer orientation. They analyzed our audience and our marketing strategy and created a solution that fits.

Feedback summary: 

Thanks to LITSLINK’s fast-paced workflow and self-sustained project management, both products arrived on time and achieved satisfactory quality. The team’s ability to learn new techniques quickly, outstanding price point, and active participation in discussions catalyzed better business outcomes.  

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 COO of an application software company primarily focusing on developing automation and machine learning inside a new generation of mobile email clients. Right now, our application is used by some of the top law firms in the U.S. We are providing custom integrations with various services and applications that law firms use for various needs like time tracking, accounting, and document management. The company has a background in software development and IA [intelligence automation] machine learning, and we have been on the market with our product for about 3 years. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with LITSLINK?

We have a small team that cannot do everything that our business requires at times. We were testing opportunities in the desktop application market, and we needed to jump-start our development for the Android application. We’d already gone through a vast development cycle for our iOS product and accumulated a lot of expertise and specifications. We asked LITSLINK to help us with the desktop project as well as the Android application simultaneously. They had the expertise and people to do both projects in 6 months. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We provided them with specifications and inside knowledge from what we’d developed for the iOS application. They had an entire team for providing self-sustained project development and project management, which included their Scrum master, project manager, CTO, and engineering manager, who helped us make architectural decisions. They participated in various discussions on the technical level. They provided a complete development team from UI to core algorithms, whether we needed server side or specific UI/UX resources for Android or iOS. They always had somebody on their team who could fill a role part-time or full-time, depending on the project needs.

The Android application was programmed in Java, and we used Electron for the desktop version. Electron is a system that allows programming of third-party applications for Mac and Windows.

Electron was a completely new system for us to learn. We knew that a lot of people were developing desktop applications with it, including Slack and JIRA. We were not experts on the platform, so LITSLINK was able to take our requirements and put together a complete application. That was one of the biggest challenges. They had to produce a working demo application for both Android and desktop. For example, the email functionality for Android included a replication of all the existing value propositions in our iOS client—sorting emails by priority, developing behavioral analysis and algorithms, and creating a brand-new UX experience that did not exist in other products at that time in the mobile email space.

They created sorting mechanisms for primary and other emails. They created artificial or machine learning-type implementations on the user’s device and not the cloud. They were involved in a lot of various components of the product, which required them to learn new things and work with our engineers to transfer whatever knowledge we already had at that time to speed up the process.

How did you come to work with LITSLINK?

We’ve known their CEO for quite some time. We were introduced by our advisor and investor. We decided to work with them long-term after they completed a couple of test projects for us on iOS features and improvements. They were compatible in price and had a strong background in mobile application development. 

How much have you invested with LITSLINK?

We spent between $200,000 and $1M.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in July 2016, and the project was completed in January 2017. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

Up to 3 teams were working on our project at the same time. Those teams perform differently. The statistics on average would be satisfactory, with some teams performing on a level of excellence that superseded others. With other teams, we had to do more hand-holding to help them deliver better results. One measurement that we relied on was deliverability. They did deliver 2 products to us in a short timeframe. We had some delays, and we had to cut some things that we had planned. In terms of our spending and output, the project was very satisfactory.

Since they were an external developer, they brought us closer to the reality of improving our organizational skills internally. We worked closely with them in developing the right understanding and team structure as far as the time frames and specifications for deliverables. That set up the groundwork for us to move towards Agile project development inside our organization.

Some of the people on their team were specific in the way that they thought about developing quality, UI/UX experience, etc. They would always focus our initial efforts in designing and planning the product. We were able to deliver high quality in terms of the look and feel of the product. They were driven to make that part of the development process go as smoothly as possible.

In terms of product performance, at the core level, it’s good, but we did have to pay more attention to certain things and divert more resources from our end to make sure that the product that we were delivering was up to our standards. Through the whole experience, we were asking a lot from LITSLINK. We had 3 years of expertise working on the product that we were asking them to develop in 6 months.

Overall, my co-founders are very happy with the results. Our users continue to love the application. Of course, users are never satisfied, so they always want something different and additional changes. The main goal was achieved by LITSLINK in delivering the MVP to our users, so they actually had something instead of nothing.

How did LITSLINK perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re self-reliant and self-motivated. They didn’t need a lot of hand-holding in project management. They knew what to do and when it was supposed to be done. When they finished something, they would eagerly ask what else needed to be done. I was happy the developers already had the right knowledge and could adapt to the process that we required.

When we started a new cycle, things were well-planned, and the whole roadmap was written down. In the process, things could change rapidly if we ran into problems or priorities shifted. They adapted easily and were easy to work with.

What did you find most impressive about LITSLINK?

Their research and development and self-sufficiency in those areas are critical. They had to learn a brand-new platform to deliver a brand-new product in 6 months. They have strong mobile expertise on their team, so I would definitely recommend them to anyone who’s looking for mobile developers.

I know they have other development teams that work on machine learning and intelligence on the server side, but we didn’t get to use them as much. In a certain context, their AI developer was involved in fine-tuning our algorithms, and his expertise was extraordinary. He was able to do in 2 months what our team had tried to do for 6 or 8 months. That resource jump-started the whole process for us. After working with him, we knew a lot more about what we needed to have in the next person we hire as a machine learning developer.

Are there any areas LITSLINK could improve?

I’d like to see a more streamlined process. One thing that is always lacking is the ability to communicate on all fronts. We had a 12-hour time difference, so things couldn’t be solved on a real-time basis, even though someone from their team was available 24/7 for us.

When you’re working with people on the other side of the globe, a bottleneck can happen for any development firm that is working as a third-party service provider with an established organization in North America, Latin America, etc.
