What was the scope of their involvement?
We heavily rely on Sketch for the design of the different screens, and also on InVision for mockups. It helps us visualize the design and mimic what it will look like in the end.
One of the added-on features we offer is an analytics portal that captures details related to the transactions. It helps pension funds with millions of retirees when they’re being audited. One Tree helped developed a new design for the analytics portal to make it more user-friendly for pension administration officers.
Right now, we’re making some minor changes but my goal is to keep working with 1–2 designers for the next few months. Then, as new clients come in, they’re going to want to change the look and feel and the colors, which we can quickly do but we need someone to design it.
What is the team composition?
We worked with three people in total. They’re all design related. I’ve had multiple meetings with their CEO and their founder, and having that connection where they ask me what my goals are has been great. It’s made it a very good experience. I mainly deal with developers and designers.
How did you come to work with OneTree?
I’ve worked for the Inter-American Development Bank for many years, as well as The World Bank, so I’ve developed many contacts in international organizations and vendors. When I left The World Bank I wanted to find a company to partner with that would allow me to scale quickly. If I end up with 15–2- customers I can’t hire a whole team here in Washington. If I needed two developers for two months or five developers for six months two one year I could do it with OneTree without dealing with all the payroll work.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent around $25,000–$30,000 so far.
What is the status of this engagement?
We’ve been working together since June 2019.
