Feedback summary: 

Due to unforeseen internal circumstances, the project ceased before final delivery. The team worked fast and proactively during the relationship. Likewise, the collaboration was smooth and effective.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the Team Lead, Advanced Technologies & Prototypes at Česká spořitelna, a bank in the Czech Republic.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Madesense Digital?

We wanted a mobile app UI design that’s friendly for seniors or visually-impaired users.

What were your goals for this project?

Madesense Digital needed to deliver an app that’s was user-friendly and conducive to people teaching others how to use it.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I met the team at a community event a few years ago and liked their enthusiasm and approach.

Describe the project in detail.

The project focused on the UI and our API as tools to make our app accessible to the targeted clients.

What was the team composition?

Their team included three or four developers, and about the same number of IT specialists working on middleware and integrations.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

No, because a new internet banking rollout changed our initial plans. We stopped the project just before delivery due to business priorities and capacities.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The team worked fast in a proactive manner. However, a new internal policy—federated login page(s) solution—slowed us down. Although we tried to move forward with the same smooth process, our team had to reprioritize.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They had a “get it done” approach.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We could have better-managed timing in the collaboration.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Orange Slovensko is a subsidiary of the Orange Group, a leading telecommunications company in Slovakia. I’m the product manager for our latest app, Orange jednoduchšie.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire madesense.digital?

We hired them to create an easy-to-use Android launcher.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to get 1,000 customers to use the app and sign up for an Orange mobile subscription within 12 months. The main challenge was attracting customers in Slovakia, who were mostly conservative and preferred to use feature phones.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We received a promising offer from Madesense.

Describe the project in detail.

They helped us create a simple Android launcher that would allow customers to easily switch from feature phones to smartphones. Our app was branded with the Orange colors for our customers.

What was the team composition?

Josef (Co-Founder, Madesense) was our main contact. Initially, we met with their legal representative to finalize the agreement. Our project team consisted of representatives from different units, including marketing communications, product marketing, corporate law, customer service, and digital marketing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They delivered a high-quality app. Within three months after its launch, the app had more than 1,000 downloads on Google Play with a 4.3-star rating.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The product development was very effective, thanks to Josef. He communicated with us in a timely manner and made sure that all results were delivered.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We were impressed with their innovative approach and prompt replies.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Since they did not have any in-house legal representatives, finalizing our contract took longer than we anticipated.
