    We had an outdated app that needed custom extensions developed for the ShoutEm platform. We also wanted to update the look and feel of the app and standardize it for phones and tablets.

    What were your goals for this project?

    We wanted to pull content from a database and give the look a modern look and feel.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    Lloyd's was recommended from the app platform company.

    Describe the project in detail.

    We had meetings to discuss the current app and the steps required to develop a new app for publication on a newer platform. Once we defined our needs, we then created a project timeline and budget.

    We worked with a project manager to define needs and then Lloyd's distributed the work to developers and designers.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

    How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

    Lloyd's was easy to work with and available throughout the life of the project. The majority of communication was via email with video conferences scheduled when required.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I’m the managing director for RealCom Broadcast Ltd. We provide resources to the satellite broadcast industry. We’re currently developing broadcast opportunities in alternate markets using mobile apps.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Lloyds Design?

    I needed to hire an external resource to develop an app to promote local businesses, events, and promotions.

    What were your goals for this project?

    I wanted to create an app for multiple clients and users. It should have claim/validate and purchasing functionality, along with location-relevant information.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    I selected Lloyds Design after researching several vendors. I started the project with a freelance team, but they weren’t focused enough on the creative process. We had an initial introduction on Skype, and then I traveled to Croatia to meet the team. I was impressed by their hunger to develop their business in the industry.

    Describe the project in detail.

    I started by giving them the basic specifications and Visio workflows. We discussed the guidelines and functionality required of the app. They established a cloud documentation tool so that any work on project synopsis documents could be edited and commented by all parties. Both teams discussed and commented on design, screens, and color schemes via cloud collaboration. Lloyds Design used Laravel PHP framework, MySQL database, and hosted on AWS using S3, EC2, and RDS products from the AWS suite in their development of the app. 

    What was the team composition?

    I worked with a designer, a backend developer, a UI/UX developer, and several other members of their team.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

    The finished product fulfilled all my expectations and specifications. Deployment has started but is very much in its infancy in terms of the number of downloads. Lloyds Design’s expertise was essential in overcoming any problems or challenges. They were also able to provide useful advice on efficiencies in design, workflow, and the user & client experience. 

    How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

    The whole project flowed seamlessly. I had set expectations on regular communication throughout the project, which was a critical factor in the success of this project from conception to delivery. We had weekly communication, as well as when required and occasionally outside of business hours. I always had the information I required from the members of the team who were working on each phase of the project.

    Lloyds Design was positive in every meeting, helpful in offering new ideas, and receptive to changes. Any issues were quickly addressed. They’re honest and candid with respect to what could realistically be achieved. Their commitment to a "we will make this happen" approach helped develop trust in their capabilities and deliverables. 

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Their openness and honesty were so impressive. Lloyds Design had the drive to achieve the best possible outcome of the project. They desired to build something, not only that I would be proud to own, but they would be pleased to create.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    No. If anything, I’d like to see more of this company in the UK.
