Feedback summary: 

Their professional and personal approach to projects is what makes working with Matsuu an easy process. They take the time to understand their client's needs to deliver quality results.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

dopreprogramy.pl (meaning good software in English) is the largest vertical portal in Poland dedicated to software, with a unique blogging platform for its users and a large, curated base of applications for most popular operating systems. We stand out amongst our competition not only with stats, but also with the deep relationship we have with the community of our readers.

I am editor-in-chief. My responsibilities include the management of our editorial office, cooperation with business partners, planning strategic goals with the Board, and of course, writing as an editor and maintaining relations with our community.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Matsuu?

Sometimes we launch online contests for our readers, often lasting several days, with attractive prizes and special tasks. We were looking for a solution to reinforce our commitment to the community by elevating the challenges of the contest, improving their timing aspect and bringing even more immersive experiences to everyone involved.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We wanted to create a mobile application for Android and iOS which could be used in our "Konkursy z dioda" ("Contests with the LED" in English). The application was used not only to push new questions in a given day as fast as possible, but also to track the time spent on each answer, facilitate the process of the giveaway of smaller prizes, and to track the daily rankings of contestants.

How did you come to work with Matsuu?

We were looking for a software house with a lot of experience in both Android and iOS development and with competitive prices. Matsuu proposed the best terms so we accepted their initial offer.

How much have you invested with Matsuu?

The estimated price for the "LED it be" project was $70,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Matsuu in autumn of 2016. In the beginning of February 2017 we had a working app (for both Android and iOS) and we used it in a contest done in partnership with AVAST, a leading antivirus software company.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our community was very happy with this unexpected turn of events - developing a mobile app was new for us. The first contest was a success from the business side. Our partner is glad about the results because the increased competition brought more attention to his products.

What did you find most impressive about Matsuu?

They are flexible and easy to get along with. They have shown both a professional attitude and a good understanding of our needs.

Are there any areas Matsuu could improve?

They improved already during our cooperation. In the beginning, we had some problems in choosing methods of communication between developers. Both sides were using incompatible project management systems. We found a good solution.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Matsuu developed our app for iOS and Android. We've worked with a project manager and 2 developers from their team.

How did you come to work with Matsuu?

I advise clients to get in touch with Matsuu's business developer.
