What was the scope of their involvement?
We provided Pairroxz with a set of designs for the app. We collaborated to determine specifics for how the platform was going to flow and which devices we wanted to focus on, then planned the scope. The team designed the user interface for the platform and developed the native frontend and backend for both iOS and Android devices.
The system’s main feature is its intuitive machine learning capabilities. When a user inputs their experience regarding the lifespan of a specific food item, the system will archive that data and update its internal database. Based on those metrics, Pairroxz programmed the app to determine a general average lifespan for each food product and also update each specific users’ profile with their unique experience. This allows the system to adjust according to variables in users’ habits, such as the temperature at which they store food.
After the development process, we entered a preliminary beta testing phase. Step-by-step, we went through the app from two different perspectives, us as users and the Pairroxz team as developers. We thoroughly documented any issues or possible improvements in the app’s design and overall experience. Pairroxz made the changes and, from there, it was a back-and-forth process until the product was absolutely perfect.
Now, we’re using the system as a demonstration while we work to create a second version of the app using cross-platform development tools. This new platform will be able to support a larger user base and have additional integration capabilities that will allow users to interact with the app in their food shopping, ordering, and delivering processes.
What is the team composition?
The total team size was probably around ten people. We worked with two main representatives, an iOS development team, and an Android development team.
How did you come to work with Pairroxz Technologies Pvt Ltd.?
We initially found them on Elance, which is now Upwork. We spoke with a number of different agencies, but weren’t happy with any of them. It was a lengthy interview and vetting process, but ultimately, we decided to go with Pairroxz.
How much have you invested with them?
So far, I estimate we have spent around $28,000 on this project.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in March 2014 and the partnership is ongoing.
