CryptoCoach

Concept

The founder of CryptoCoach works as a consultant on cryptocurrency. He works in helping his clients understand blockchain, bitcoin, and decentralized ledger technology. We were asked to create CryptoCoach- a platform the founder could use to blog about cryptocurrency and release podcasts. We were also asked to create a member’s area for the website where the services offered to accounting and investment firms can be promoted.

How We Helped

We first helped creating a board structure and gathering the ideas and goals for the project. We then offered a few solutions that we thought were best suited to the website and the field they are working in. Next was putting designs and getting the client’s feedback and comments on it. Functionality and features were given out to us in stages, so there’s a lot in the backend and very minimum stuff visible in the frontend. Our goal was to help create a website which not only works...

BelievePerform

Concept

BelievePerform was thought of as a website where people can have access to courses related to Sports Psychology, developing confidence, and having a positive mindset. In addition to the courses, you can also purchase infographics based on categories like Mental Health, Athletes, and Sport Coaches.

BelievePerform features a blog that talk about Education, Well Being, and Coaching. Users also have access to Podcasts and Videos that talk about a variety of things relating to sports and coaching. It is a platform that can prove to be helpful for those who possess a passion for sports psychology as well as those who want to understand the field better.

How We Helped

We were given an opportunity by the client to enhance their website by integrating new features and APIs. We did a detailed analysis of the website and optimized it for both web and mobile. The client required an e-commerce function on the website ...

EximChain

Concept

Eximchain is a blockchain company building infrastructure and applications for the supply chain industry. We were to do the frontend design integration and create components for a React Native and React.js library which would be further used by the developers in future.

How We Helped

The brief given to us was about developing a web backend panel design with responsiveness for React.js using designs already created by the team at Eximchain. Along with that, we provided frontend design integration for the mobile app on React Native platform. The design for the React Native platform was also provided by the team at Eximchain. So after we were provided the requirements for the project, we gave them an analysis on the scope of work before actually getting into the development process.

Spades

Concept

Construction businesses in Australia conduct most of their work via phone. So construction businesses will call labour hire business. The labor hire would then call potential workers and send them to their clients. The client realised that the labor hire business needed to be online to be unique and stand out.

Even though it was thought for daily wagers, in reality, any other person working in a different field can also put this app to use as it helps them in maintaining and accessing their CVs and other important documents from one place, instead of carrying a bunch of those documents wherever they go.

How We Helped

App specifications and designs were expressed to us. We were asked to develop an iOS and an Android app to accelerate information sharing. We developed the app using software that is compatible with both iOS and Android. We were provided with a preliminary app design. Also, the app was required...

VOX

Concept

The project was being made with the aim to facilitate the flow of feedback from students to universities. It is a unity mobile app for iOS and Android. The app required animation and microphone- and gyroscope sensor-based gamification components. According to the brief given, the app needs to be playful and engaging so that students enjoy using it.

The client needed an interactive and playful app which will provide a collection of easy options for students. The campuses and staff at universities can collect this feedback and make improvements.

How We Helped

For this application, we started from scratch. We created the designs and animations for the app, and then integrated them. We tailored the app to the preference of the client for a clean, minimalistic visual experience. We developed gamification components that make use of the gyroscope sensors and microphones of devices.

Feedback summary: 

The app is still in development, but Nimblechapps Ltd’s development work is promising. Receptive to feedback and always prepared, the team works at a consistent and nimble pace. They provide regular updates on their progress, adhering to the established schedule.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I own and run a freelancing business that coordinates content creation for all aspects of social media—graphic design, videography, social media management, and more.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Nimblechapps Ltd?

I needed to develop an iOS mobile app to support my business and provide my clients with a tool to enhance their social media. I’m not a coding expert, so I looked for a vendor to build out my idea.

What were your goals for this project?

I aimed to increase accessibility between myself and my clients, while also indirectly providing a service within the app itself. The platform needed to be extremely user-friendly and manageable.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were recommended by a colleague who is also in the freelancing business and had worked with Nimblechapps Ltd in the past. The agency offered the most competitive price and had the most attractive portfolio compared to the others that I considered. I also found them approachable, so they seemed to be a good fit overall.

Describe the project in detail.

The first step in our process was a series of phone calls to discuss the app and its specifications. Then, we created a document that outlined the details we’d agreed on. Because I wanted full control over the graphic design elements, I provided an Adobe XD prototype for the interface.

Nimblechapps Ltd reviewed my design and the documentation, and assessed its level of feasibility in terms of features and deadlines and offered suggestions. Then, they planned out their development process. They used a full screen-to-screen design to guide their build strategies. Now, they’re working on the iOS app, focusing on creating content like Facebook and Instagram stories, helping users bring their social media presence to the next level.

What was the team composition?

They provided a two-person team—a project manager (PM) and an app developer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The app is still in development, and we’re hoping to finish up in November 2018. I’m very happy with our progress so far. Their team is working efficiently, and they’re very receptive to my feedback. I do not doubt that the project will end positively.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The PM is my initial point of contact for any questions or issues. We communicate through Skype, emails, phone calls, and WhatsApp. Most of my interactions with the developer are via Skype. I check in on his progress at least every two weeks. Their pace of the workflow is pleasing. They’re very attentive, always replying in a timely manner.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They’re very approachable, and they willingly accommodate all of my requests. I appreciate their speed of work. The team is always prepared, providing updates and implementing feedback with minimal notice.

Are there any areas for improvement?

They could pay more attention to smaller details. In some of our development stages, they built something that didn’t fully align with my proposed design—for example, unaligned buttons or wrong color shades. With that said, these are small issues, and they quickly correct their mistakes.

Feedback summary: 

Nimblechapps Ltd’s work improved the site’s processing speed and overall intuitiveness. They facilitate a consistent increase in sales and have ensured transactions can be easily processed on the backend. A commitment to customer service at an affordable price makes them valuable partners.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the COO of Believe Perform. We’re one of the largest sports psychology websites in the world.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Nimblechapps Ltd?

We needed a development firm to enhance our website by integrating new features and APIs.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We required a significant amount of website analysis and product development, so Nimblechapps Ltd performed an initial full-site audit. Then, they optimized the site for both desktop and mobile. Their other efforts include streamlining existing processes, fixing bugs, and creating an intuitive UX. Most notably, they integrated an e-commerce function that enables us to sell goods worldwide. They continue to develop new features for us on an ongoing basis.

What is the team composition?

A business development manager is our primary contact and handles our day-to-day interactions with Nimblechapps Ltd. Their CEO acts as our lead project manager and oversees the developers assigned to our account.

How did you come to work with Nimblechapps Ltd?

We had another service provider based in the U.K., but a colleague of mine recommended Nimblechapps Ltd. They offered better service at a lower price, so we hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around £12,000 (approximately $16,000 USD) thus far. We’ll likely spend £30,000–£40,000 (approximately $39,000–$52,000 USD) in total.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in June 2018 and the project is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

That’s difficult to answer because they’re still in the process of implementing new functionalities. Their efforts to optimize the site for mobile have increased its processing speed. As a result, customers can quickly purchase items and we’re able to process the transactions with ease. Nimblechapps Ltd consistently increases sales and delivers what they promise. We’re already starting to reap the benefits.

How did Nimblechapps Ltd perform from a project management standpoint?

They swiftly got a sense of what we wanted to accomplish as a business and provided valuable feedback. After coming to a consensus on what needed to be addressed first, we utilized a project management software to sequence tasks and development events. Between our primary contact and the CEO, everything is organized properly. They’re available through Skype nearly 24/7. This reliable responsiveness makes it feel like we’re working with a local service provider.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Communication, transparency, and speed of service are their standout attributes. In my experience, it’s rare for the client to speak with an actual developer when outsourcing a development firm. The beauty of working with Nimblechapps Ltd is that they provide a contact who’s an experienced developer. This allows me to communicate directly with a coding expert about what needs to happen to the website. Additionally, their CEO manages that resource and ensures they deliver on what they promise. Overall, their approach is brilliant and just what we need.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Starting any new partnership comes with its share of anxiety and apprehension. Aligning business processes with another entity can be a clunky transition with significant challenges. Initially, we feared that outsourcing work to a company 3,000 miles away would be even more difficult. However, Nimblechapps Ltd worked through this process more efficiently than any firm we’ve worked with from the U.K.

Nimblechapps continues to deliver projects with high-quality, clean code at a fast pace. Their additional design skills have also helped the work stand out overall. Despite their far-away location, their team is great at communicating and accommodating client needs.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the director of products at a startup called Eximchain, a blockchain company that builds infrastructure as well as applications for the supply chain industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Nimblechapps Ltd?

We needed to develop a mobile app on React Native for one of our partners, using designs already created by our team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We've worked with Nimblechapps on a couple different projects, including a mobile application built on React Native and a responsive web application. We typically provide their team with the design and requirements for each project, and they come back to us with a proposal for the scope of work before going into development.

What is the team composition?

I've worked with Keval (CEO, Nimblechapps Ltd.) and Kirit (React Native/iOS Developer, Nimblechapps Ltd.), as well as few others on their team depending on the nature of the project.

How did you come to work with Nimblechapps Ltd?

We found them on Upwork and decided to reach out to them based on their reviews. They also had the technology stacks and experience we were looking for.

How much have you invested with them?

We've invested at least $15,000 thus far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in March 2018 and the relationship is ongoing. We're about to finish the second project this week [June 2018] and expect to start a third project almost immediately after.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The quality of their code is great—it's readable and easy for our team to understand and integrate.

How did Nimblechapps Ltd perform from a project management standpoint?

They break projects down into simple milestones, allowing us to get feedback or request changes throughout the process. They usually complete tasks ahead of schedule and we haven't had any issues with communication, which is done mostly through email and instant messaging.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They communicate very well with us despite their location across the globe. They've been accommodating of our schedules and even taken calls late into the evening.

While they have a lot of experience making gaming apps, they've also proven their ability to develop enterprise software for our company very well. Their developers have a good sense of design and we've even taken advantage of some of their animation capabilities to make our designs stand out.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Since we don't get a lot of face time with their team, there was a bit of a learning curve in the beginning when it came to figuring out the best way to communicate. However, their team is willing to work with clients on the best solutions for connecting, so their location shouldn't be a huge concern.

Feedback summary: 

Increased brand awareness has led to speaking engagements, among other expanded opportunities. Nimblechapps Ltd fosters genuine care for their clients by recommending optimal solutions, regardless of how it affects their bottom-line. They’re a highly communicative and active partner.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of a cryptocurrency consulting company. I work to help clients understand bitcoin, blockchain, and decentralized ledger technology.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Nimblechapps Ltd?

What I needed from them was to develop a new website – a platform that allows me to release podcasts, do blogging, and hold online workshops. This platform will allow me to connect with users, promote content, and build a members’ area for the website, in which I can promote the services I offer to accounting and investment firms.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We started off by creating a broad structure and talking about the kinds of content and the aims and goals involved in the project. They then took me through what they thought the best solutions and layout would be. The next phase was putting designs on a test server so I could look at things as they were being built, which let us comment and we iterate on those things. They constantly take feedback, and as I produce content, they start fitting it in around the website, which has a WordPress CMS backend.

At the moment, I'm releasing certain stuff in stage, so there’s a lot of stuff in the backend that’s not visible on the frontend yet. There's going to be systems in place where members can log in, create their own accounts, and can start publishing their own content. It's almost an academy where people can communicate with each other, which takes this beyond a basic website build.

What is the team composition?

There was a project manager, a backend developer, a frontend developer, and a business development guy that has acted as a point of contact throughout.

How did you come to work with Nimblechapps Ltd?

I used to outsource work to them when I worked for an app development company and we had taken on too much work. Trying to find a good partner was a really painful process actually. We tried countless number companies where either they worked quickly but made too many mistakes, or just had too much of a language barrier.

I always go to Nimblechapps for stuff like this because there's a lot of people that can build a website, but far fewer that can build and develop systems with databases in the backend and all sorts of functionalities.

How much have you invested with them?

For this particular, one-off project, the spend is somewhere around $11,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since April 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

I've already managed to get more podcasts delivered because of it. Having that presence means that people know what you're up to. I've gotten some interesting speaking engagements through it as well. At the moment, I'm doing some public speaking gigs with pretty big trade organization and membership organizations around the UK.

How did Nimblechapps Ltd perform from a project management standpoint?

We often talk daily, but other than that, it’s just as needed really. It wouldn't be every single day, but they're certainly available for that, if I ever needed them. My plans change quite a lot, but their recommendations and product management is spot on. They never leave you in any doubt of where you stand, and the only thing that’s going to slow them down is the client themselves. It’s very rare that you have to wait on them. It’s usually them waiting on a client to make decisions or provide them with assent.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I've worked with a lot of offshore development firms in the past, and what normally happens is, you’ll set them a brief and they won't collaborate with you. They'll take what they're given and produce what they you want, based on the documentation you've given them. Whereas, with Nimblechapps, you're able to tell them your vision and goals and bring your own ideas the table. If they see a better way of doing something or they think there's a different way of approaching it, they’ll let you know.

Two things that really stand out for me with Nimblechapps are A) their proficiency with English and B) their organization skills and their communication. The latter makes them really easy to work with. When you go out shopping for developers and you want someone to build something for you, everyone will tell you at the start of the project that the requirements are well within their capabilities and means. But Nimblechapps is more consultative. They'll tell you what they think is good about your project, what they would change, and then give you real feedback and input.

If they think you're going down the wrong route they'll tell you so, even though that might be to their detriment. This speaks to their values as a business. They try to help customers launch products and websites that in turn become successful, which increases the likelihood that they’re going to keep spending money with them. Rather than forming a transactional relationship, they’ll invest in your success.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I'd be really hard pushed to find areas of improvement, and I'm not just going to pull one out of the sky for the sake of answering the question. I don’t have anything that I think they really need to focus on at the moment.

Any advice for potential customers?

You need to have a relatively clear idea of what it is you want to build. You’ll get an awful lot more out of your development team, and certainly out of Nimblechapps, if you can give them a decent brief, and a decent understanding of what you’re trying to achieve.

One thing that’s really key in the development world is having a realistic budget. I think Nimblechapps is extremely competitively priced, based on their talent and what they can achieve, so you have to give them a reasonable budget. A lot of people want the moon on a stick for very little money and they don’t understand the complexity of software development. So, if you come to them with a really tight brief, and a really good idea of what you want to build, and you’ve got a budget that matches your expectations, then it’s going to go really smoothly.

Feedback summary: 

Pre-launch, the app functions well. The team communicates well with non-developers. Meeting deadlines is not a problem and they are reliable with keeping to meetings, but speed can cause key details to be overlooked.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I run an online labor hire business in Australia that focuses on providing workers for construction companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Nimblechapps?

In Australia, construction businesses conduct the bulk of their work via phone. In other words, construction businesses will call labor hire businesses, which will then call potential workers and send them to their clients. I felt our labor hire business needed to be online to stand out from our competitors.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I first expressed my required app specifications and designs to them. Once we agreed on a quote, they started developing the app using software that is both iOS- and Android-compatible. I provided them a preliminary app design, and specified that I wanted the app to process client requests immediately, in addition to having a timesheet feature for workers and clients to access.

We exchanged information and thoughts, and they assisted me with app development, informing me of what parts of my design would actually work. They came to know every detail regarding the app, so they could help me throughout the project’s development process. They send me updated versions of it, and I send them feedback with comments on what I would like fixed or changed. They also do backend work for our web page.

What is the team dynamic?

I mainly communicate with two of their developers, who then pass on any relevant information to the rest of their team. I get the impression that their team dynamic is fluid, so if the amount of work we need to get done increases substantially, the number of their team members who are involved in the work also increases.

How did you come to work with Nimblechapps?

I found them on Upwork. Multiple developers applied for the job, but Nimblechapps stood out because they already had ideas for improving my app and honing project goals.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $17,000 on them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2016, and we’re still building out the app.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Working with them has been successful so far. I asked an outside developer to test the current iteration of the app. He liked the app and didn’t find any major problems with it.

How did Nimblechapps perform from a project management standpoint?

They were consistently on schedule and receptive to feedback. When we have issues with any piece of the app, they fix it for us right away.  The only thing that I wasn’t happy with was that they focused too much on the project’s milestones. This resulted in them missing certain details we desired as they rushed to meet deadlines. I’ve had to reach out to them to complete pieces of the app that they missed, but they typically expect payment first. I’m picky with designs, so I reach out to them frequently.

We mainly use Skype and InVision to communicate. They’ll send me app design concepts and I’ll print screen each version and make my desired adjustments using Photoshop. In this way, we effectively collaborate.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They engage in your project with you and strive to help you. They are patient and make an effort to explain concepts to you. For instance, they’ll tell me if a design I want isn’t functional, and then provide me with alternative options. As a designer with little development knowledge, this is critical.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could be better at communicating the degree of difficulty for design implementation in the development process. For instance, I’ve had no concept of how easy or hard it has been for them to develop certain features I’ve asked them to work on. I would have appreciated an explanation of their process.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Before hiring them, you should seek guidance from a development advisor that can help you plan out the app you want in its entirety. This way you have the product design from start to finish, and concepts don’t need to continuously change along the way. After all, the developers are aiming to finish the desired product as quickly as possible.

Feedback summary: 

The app’s clean look and UX capture design vision and its custom features are functioning well without errors. The team responds within minutes and incorporates feedback. Their creative and thoughtful collaboration, broad skill set, and competitive pricing deliver an impressive total package.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I have started a project that aims to facilitate the flow of feedback from students to universities. I’m solely responsible for the project.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Nimblechapps?

At the moment, the service options are rudimentary, so I wanted to develop a mobile app to facilitate that.

The challenge was to build a playful and engaging app that students would enjoy using. The initial target audience was students at a specific university. The opportunity with this app is to provide a collection of easy options for students. Then campuses and staff can apply feedback to make improvements.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Nimblechapps initially investigated what I wanted to do. Then they proposed a quote and project scope, including options they could offer within my budget constraints.

The scope entailed full app development and design. Another developer had built a pilot version for me, but Nimblechapps started from scratch. Step-by-step, they built the app, created its design and animations, and integrated them.

They provided Unity app development for Android and iOS. They also developed gamification components that make use of the gyroscope sensors and microphones of devices.

What is the team dynamic?

There was a full team working on the app, with anywhere between 10–20 people at a given time. In the beginning, I communicated with both the project manager and the developer in order to be clear on the details. Later on, I mainly worked with the project manager. We mostly communicated by email.

How did you come to work with Nimblechapps?

I researched a lot of mobile app developers, with the budget being my biggest constraint. I wanted to create a high-quality product while keeping it within an attainable cost.

Nimblechapps presented their proposal to me, and we had multiple phone conversations. They had by far the most detailed approach to my idea and were the most thorough in asking questions. I doubted that the other companies understood what I wanted, but Nimblechapps dug deep until they grasped it completely.

A perfect mix of in-range budget expectations and high quality set them apart and finalized my decision to go with them.

How much have you invested with them?

The total cost of their work was around $7,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Nimblechapps in August 2017. The app is close to completion. They will handle the launch and provide a 2-month support period post-launch for any issues and bugs. They’re also open to providing any further modifications and enhancements.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Since the app hasn’t launched, it’s difficult to share results. Multiple versions are complete, and the latest one is close to completion, but there aren’t any metrics.

That said, the app has turned out tremendously well. It functions smoothly without any errors, including the nonstandard features Nimblechapps integrated. Additionally, they tailored the app to my preference for a clean, minimalistic visual experience.

Taking all this into account, they’ve offered extremely competitive prices without compromising on the quality, which is exceptionally good.

How did Nimblechapps perform from a project management standpoint?

They have been extremely responsive. I had more free time in the beginning and could reply to them within seconds. Even though I’m busier now, they continue to answer me within minutes and deliver the work promptly.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their exceptional skill set enables them to provide a valuable service. The development and design teams have a very good understanding of what users want. They also understand what I am trying to accomplish. When you factor in price as well, it’s an incredible package.

The collaborative experience with them has greatly surpassed expectations. From the beginning, they took my project very seriously and made an effort to understand every detail of the app. This process helped me understand my own ideas better, as they brought up aspects I hadn't thought of before. Communication runs smoothly and they implement my feedback swiftly.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I’ve been impressed with their work throughout, and don’t have any critique. We’ve had difficulties due to the nature of the project and working long-distance, but this is not their fault. I would definitely recommend them.

Feedback summary: 

Nimblechapps created an application meeting all given specifications, showing personal interest in the project along the way and delivering top-quality results. Nimblechapps was particularly useful in defining the project’s scope and delivering on time and within budget. 

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

I am the Owner and sole employee of BookQuarks, a company that has a web page that you use to set up book loan reminders from friends. Users can receive reminders of the books they are borrowing from you. It makes it easier to organize book lending.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Nimblechapps Ltd?

I was unsure what I was going to do with the bookmarks and how it all would work. 

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

The platform is mostly for use on mobile phones, but you can use it on tablets and desktops as well. They developed the platform using NetBeans. The key features developed into the site are the entry lines and that it would function easily for the user so you don’t have to write in everything again. For example, when you are resetting a loan, sometimes you send a reminder and you want to change that. It came out perfectly.

How did you come to work with Nimblechapps Ltd?

I tried to get in touch with a lot of different people through Clutch and Freelancer.com. Nimblechapps was interested in this project because they thought it was different and were up for the challenge. They contacted me just because they were interested in the project and no one else did that.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

Less than $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from May 2017 until July 2017. 

 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

We launch the website on Monday. I think it’s perfect and everything has been just as I had described to them.

How did Nimblechapps Ltd perform from a project management standpoint?

Nimblechapps helped me from the very beginning to understand how we should approach this and the user interface design. I sent him some sketches and he’s handled that. He was very helpful with what I wanted to do and it became much more clear to me. They were perfect in every aspect. We use mostly Skype but also via phone too. They deliver on time and within budget.

What distinguishes Nimblechapps Ltd from other providers?

This has been the best experience. They are helpful, flexible, and friendly. They will help you with your goals.

Is there anything Nimblechapps Ltd could have improved or done differently?

No.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Nimblechapps?

There’s a client I was working with who had a series of characters that he wanted to be developed into a game. I work with a partner who does development, and he was busy, so I needed to find a firm to develop the game for the client.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I’ve been working on a lot of visuals for the game, created the backstory, and what the gameplay mechanics would be. Nimblechapps did everything for the development process including implementing the gameplay, navigation, social media aspects, etc.

What did you find most impressive about Nimblechapps?

Nimblechapps has great developers on their team, but I can’t think of anything unique.

Brainium Labs is a website and mobile application design and development company based in Darwin, Australia. I am the founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Nimblechapps?

We required a mobile application that was easy to use for younger audiences as well as appeal to older users. We needed a cost-effective and time-effective developer that was flexible with our needs and adaptable to change in project scope.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

It was for iOS mobile phone application development for a health research program. User data is collected and rated against various metrics. Users can view past data, receive push notifications, and access health resources. Nimblechapps provided development services and technical advice.

How did you come to work with Nimblechapps?

What did you find most impressive about Nimblechapps?

They are excellent. They are very fast, and their communication is excellent – no matter what time of day or day of the week. Nimblechapps was usually waiting for feedback, and it was us that were slowing them down. Invoicing and payments were very straightforward.

What did you find most impressive about Nimblechapps?

It would be their excellent communication, willingness to go the extra distance, being very flexible with project requirements, and offering fair pricing combined with expert-level development skills and knowledge. They have been very patient with our numerous change requests.

Are there any areas Nimblechapps could improve?

None.

Feedback summary: 

NimbleChapps received a perfect score across all categories they were evaluated on. The quality of their work, commitment to timelines, and competitive pricing, sets them apart in an already competitive industry.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re an app development company based in Scotland. We build hybrid apps and native mobile apps for Android and iOS. We also do web apps, web design, and development. We’re now starting to look into wearable technologies. We also do some digital marketing. I’m co-founder and client director.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with NimbleChapps?

We augmented our team with NimbleChapps to be able to build a mobile app to allow people to perform interviews online via video. This helps improve the shortlisting process in recruitment because applicants will be providing a video instead of a CV.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’ve just worked with them on the proof of concept that was designed to work on both iOS and Android. We needed to prove that the videos could be uploaded fast enough for people to want to use the service. There will be more work in the future.

How did you come to work with NimbleChapps?

We develop apps ourselves, so we have a clear idea of what we want to build. NimbleChapps asked the right questions and gave their suggestions to make the app better. When we were speaking with them on Skype, we felt confident that they would be able to deliver. They have the knowledge on the tech side, but also, they’re very pragmatic.

How much have you invested with NimbleChapps?

We’ve spent between $10,000 and $50,000 with NimbleChapps so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with NimbleChapps in September 2016, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The result was that the proof of concept works, and now we have the confidence to move forward and build the app. The feedback from our client was really good. They were impressed with how fast the project was completed. There were only slight tweaks that needed to be made after delivery.

How did NimbleChapps perform from a project management standpoint?

NimbleChapps can turn things around very quickly, and we never have to wait on them for anything. We’re in the UK, and they’re in India, but they have always answered questions in a few hours. We use Skype, Slack, and Trello to communicate and keep things organized. They delivered the project ahead of schedule.

What did you find most impressive about NimbleChapps?

The team at NimbleChapps are willing to challenge our thinking. A lot of developers listen to your requirements and give you a price. What I love about NimbleChapps is that you can give them the requirements and rather than give a price, they question your thinking and give you their suggestions. They’re very transparent and trustworthy and even offer suggestions that will cost less. We have confidence that they’re working as our partner to come up with the best solution rather than looking after their own interests.

Are there any areas NimbleChapps could improve?

NimbleChapps' payment terms are much shorter than ours, but they did stretch theirs a bit to accommodate the payment terms we have with our clients.
