What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
We use the app daily to sell train tickets and have thousands of active users and installs every day. In my opinion, they're one of the best teams around, consisting of strong UI designers and software developers.
At the moment, we have our own in-house software development team at Tutu. Our Android developers told me that the source code from MobileUp is the best out of all our different outsource teams. It's high-quality programming.
How did MobileUp perform from a project management standpoint?
Because we’re located in Moscow, and MobileUp is located in Saint Petersburg, we worked remotely. The quality and level of communication were excellent. They were flexible and can work day and night, even during holidays if requested.
We used standard communication tools, including email, Skype, and other chat programs. In terms of project management, they use Atlassian Jira as a task tracker, GitHub as a source code repository, and Zeplin.io for design.
What did you find most impressive about them?
In the presales process, any team will claim to be the best at design, development, and so on. Only practice and real projects show what they can do in real life. MobileUp proved that they excel in these areas.
Are there any areas they could improve?
I think they could refine their project management as well as with some of their business processes. We had some situations and challenges at that level. Establishing the right project management culture within the team would help them improve.
Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?
They’re able to assess opportunities and strengths, so if they say they will do something, they work hard to do it well.
