What was the scope of their involvement?
They created a promo video to promote an app for our portfolio company, a modeling agency. After we approved their storyboards, they made the video and invited actors for voiceovers.
They also did full-stack development of a fitness app with responsive web and iOS versions. The app functions as a portal for fitness videos, allowing users to upload their own recordings, which other users can view. We received wireframes on a daily basis in order to make corrections on them, and they gave us monthly builds after that.
They built the web version as a wrapper that could run as an app, while the iOS version was coded in Swift. They created login screens, a paywall, and music layovers, including support for Apple Music and Spotify.
What is the team composition?
Soudy (Co-Founder and Senior Advisor, Neuron) worked as the product manager, and Chris (Senior UX Designer and Strategist, Neuron) later helped him with UI/UX. We worked with another team member for technical development. A couple of our internal team members helped on this project, controlling the code and doing QA.
How did you come to work with Neuron?
Soudy was on the board of a UX news and blog website that I liked. One reason we ended up choosing Neuron was their quick response to our request for a proposal. We met for 60–90 minutes to explain what we wanted, and they had a proposal to us the next day.
How much have you invested with them?
Overall, around $100,000. The video was around $30,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with them in September 2016 and the engagement concluded in January 2018.
