Feedback summary: 

MEDL contributed important insight into development best practices, ideas that increased the apps’ functionality. They ran over the original project timeline, but they had a strong, flexible team.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization. What is your role and responsibilities?

Our company is Butterfly Me. We are a studio that performs makeup services. I’m the founder and president.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal for working with MEDL Mobile?

We wanted to create an app that could connect our different studios as we continue to expand. We started specifically with Apple products, so the iPhone and iPad. MEDL Mobile helped us develop our website as well. We’re opening our first two studios this year with the hope of rolling out nationally. The app was a vehicle for providing a place for clients to see the menu of looks, make appointments, and a way to connect the services they’ve gotten at one studio to other studios as the chain grows.

SOLUTION

What was your process for selecting MEDL Mobile with which to work?

We considered four other companies. We went with MEDL Mobile because their pricing structure was better than the others. Their presentation walked us through and made it transparent what the process would be. It was the most understandable. 

Can you give a sense of the size of the initiative in dollar terms or a personnel work-hour figure?

Our partnership with MEDL Mobile is ongoing, but the estimated final cost will fall between $50,000 and $200,000.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Is there anything unique or special about MEDL Mobile that really makes them stand out compared to other business partners?

I will say that I’ve been very appreciative of how creative MEDL Mobile is and how flexible they are. They brought so many other ideas to the process and those have made the app a much better tool. They’ve got a great team. 

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or that you might do differently?

Our timeline that was originally set wasn’t met. Part of that was on our end. I just needed to manage my expectations a little better. Although it hasn’t caused any negative ramifications.

Feedback summary: 

MEDL Mobile stood apart from their competitors by demonstrating a deep understanding of the app’s concept. Although graphic design was not the strongest, their development expertise made up for it. The app they delivered was just as ideated.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

I am the founder and sole proprietor of a mobile app company. Our app ranks sightseeing locations in various cities worldwide. Users can choose countries and cities in a world map to see the top-ranked spots. The app connects to VistaGram to get the content.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal for working with MEDL Mobile? Please describe the scope of their work.

We partnered with MEDL Mobile to develop our mobile app.

SOLUTION

What was your process for selecting MEDL Mobile with which to work?

We chose to partner with MEDL Mobile because they really understood the concept for the app I wanted developed. When researching mobile app development companies MEDL had developed similar types of apps to the one that I was looking to develop.

Can you give a sense of the size of the initiative in dollar terms or a personnel work-hour figure?

The project was of substantial means and fell somewhere in the bucket between $50,000 and $100,000.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Is there anything unique or special about MEDL Mobile that really makes them stand out compared to other business partners?

MEDL Mobile really understood the concept of the app that I wanted developed. Many of the other developers I researched and spoke with couldn’t seem to get their heads around my idea. 

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or that you might do differently?

The only thing I can think to have them improve slightly on is their attention to graphic design. MEDL Mobile’s coding expertise, and the development work they provided for this app was perfect.

Feedback summary: 

MEDL Mobile demonstrated top-of-the-line expertise not only in the technical elements but in the theories of what makes app games great. The team was honestly excited about the game’s possibilities. They were friendly and easy to walk to. They focused specifically on the social aspect of the app.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization. What is your role and responsibilities?

The company is Authors on Acid Limited, I am the CEO. My role was developing the concept of the app and having the drive to move it forward. I also found the substantial investment that we needed to put everything together. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal for working with MEDL Mobile?

We wanted to partner with a firm that had the expertise on how to make a gaming app successful, not just the technological background to develop it. We could have hired staff to do it, but we wanted a partner who could help us make the game flow and provide a better user experience. We wanted to hire experts in the gaming industry, and in the mobile app industry as well as the social industry. 

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

We have built a singular mobile gaming application with MEDL Mobile that allows multiple people collaboratively to build a story for the purposes of having fun and making your friends laugh. This game can be played remotely. The project with MEDL Mobile involved mobile app development, design, and marketing. MEDL Mobile worked with us with on the creative side of the app, in terms of design and expanding out the concepts of the game. I’m a creative person, and MEDL Mobile helped us redevelop the original concept into a game where people could win, lose, and have fun. They did a great job at developing that aspect of the app. We had to figure out how to keep the game moving and avoid the game ending.

What was your process for selecting MEDL Mobile with which to work?

We met with a lot of different companies. We looked at the work MEDL Mobile had done before, and we were very impressed with them. We felt that on the creative side they immediately got our concept. They were genuinely excited about the game. Their knowledge and understanding of the social aspect of mobile apps is impressive and very beneficial to the development aspects of the project.

Can you give a sense of the size of the initiative in dollar terms or a personnel work-hour figure?

The size of the project fell in the $50,000 - $200,000 range.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Is there anything unique or special about MEDL Mobile that really makes them stand out compared to other business partners?

I think they’re one of the most creative companies I’ve ever worked with. The design level that they do for their industry is pretty high. Our brand was inexistent prior to our partnership with MEDL Mobile. They worked with us to create everything. They’re a friendly business to work with. They’re very relaxed and open. They’ll give you as much time as you need. You feel like it’s a partnership.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or that you might do differently?

No. I know how difficult mobile app design, development, and marketing projects can be. I don’t think anything could have gone better.
