What was the scope of their involvement?
Mobindustry developed our website and iOS app using around 6 frontend and backend developers, as well as a project manager who interfaced with us on a daily basis. The language barrier is always a concern for offshore companies, but Mobindustry's project manager was very well-spoken and was able to relay our requirements to the development team.
Mobindustry worked closely with us throughout the process. With the UK developers, we had conversations, worked on wireframes, and had them come back to us with the work. We would then request some changes, and encounter resistance, given that we were paying a fixed price for the work. Mobindustry had a much more interactive, testing and validating process, which meant that we didn't have to spend too long on creating something which wasn't working.
How did you come to work with Mobindustry?
We hadn't used offshoring as an opportunity before, so we looked at other agencies in the UK. My co-founder, who had used offshore companies while working in Silicon Valley, recommended Mobindustry and said that we should give them a go. We spoke to a total of 2-3 companies in the Ukraine and were most impressed with Mobindustry. Their CEO is quite approachable, has good English skills, and understood our problems. We quickly formed a good relationship and found Mobindustry to have a reasonable cost base and a good skillset.
How much have you invested with Mobindustry?
We've spent above $50,000 so far on Mobindustry's services.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with Mobindustry at the beginning of 2015. Since we began our collaboration, Mobindustry has rationalized its business model. We came to using only around 2 developers and ultimately ended the relationship 2 weeks ago. It was a surprise to find this out, but I'm still quite happy to provide a reference for Mobindustry. What they did was great, and is not hinged upon whether or not we still have a relationship.
