Makro app Image

Makro app

Revolution for the wholesale grocery shopping? With this app, you have the whole supermarket in your pocket.

Makro is an international brand of warehouse clubs, also called cash and carries. It is providing local gastro business with fresh and economy packed food and ingredients. The supermarket is large and customers often can't find the specific product or do not have all the necessary information about ingredients or

origin. This app is meant to be the personal assistant for the customers - helping them to navigate effectively, answer their questions and also keep the track of their accounts, previously bought items, receipts and also enable them to buy and have delivered everything without a physical visit in the Makro. The biggest challenge was a smooth integration with the database of more than 7,000 products.
Fatpipe Image

Fatpipe

Your brand was hip and chick yesterday, but today people perceive your brand image as old, without invention. It's the best opportunity that you have to explore to the fullest! Thinking only about new design would be a desperately low goal, you have to aim much higher!

Smart Banking Image

Smart Banking

Smart Banking must be absolutely user-friendly so that people actually look forward to using it.

This app, made for one of the biggest banking players, provides users with dashboards showing all necessary details about their bank accounts. The advanced possibilities for categorizing the transactions and finance control are easy-to-use and supported by gamification (motivating you to keep saving a few bucks every month

for your dream ride). Fast database responses and complete security were of paramount importance.
Primeros Image

We finished this project last year - the leading condom-maker wanted us to promote his new product line. This fancy page showed enough style (like this product needed it :-D) to introduce the new line as a part of a very successful campaign. Who knows, what project will come next!

Dobrey Image

The whole process includes steps such as administration of the cooking event, signing up of the customers, approving and rating. In addition, we created and perfected everything to achieve success - brand image,

business model, website presentation, mobile app, and even marketing communication.

We spoke with Pixelmate’s owners and project manager, who delegated the work to their team.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the business architect at Patria Finance, an investment brokerage firm in the Czech Republic.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Pixelmate?

We engaged Pixelmate to help us introduce an investment robo-advisory app to the market. We need help translating our wireframes into a functional screen design, developing the mobile app for iOS and Android devices, and improving the apps’ UX.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a clean, simple, and user-friendly web and mobile application that would attract a new target audience: retail clients with minimal investment experience. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We launched am RFP process for mobile app developers and came with a multi-criteria decision matrix. We invited each company to fill out a questionnaire and then present their work, team, and price parameters. We narrowed the selection to two finalists; after internal voting, we chose Pixelmate. 

Their outstanding pitch came with an excellent price, an impressive team structure, and top-notch references. Pixelmate came across as a group of dedicated professionals with enthusiasm, flexibility, and fresh ideas. The team also demonstrated an organized and professional approach to potential clients.

Describe the project in detail.

We first started with a series of investment crash-course meetings where we introduced Pixelmate to investing and robo-advisors. We described our goals and objectives in more detail, focusing on client segments, turnover, and related areas. We then presented Pixelmate with fleshed-out wireframes for both the web and mobile applications and their user flow. 

The team prepared the logo, look, and feel of the new app. After being presented with several options, we chose one to go with. Pixelmate then designed the screens for the web and mobile apps through three iteration rounds. After that, the team coded the look for all the web screens and built the mobile app completely—including its screens and logic. They also advised us on ways to improve the UX, user flow, and screen composition when needed

What was the team composition?

An account manager serves as our main point of contact. We also work with a project manager and a chief development coordinator who leads a few frontend developers for mobile and web applications. 
 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The project is not yet complete. However, Pixelmate has delivered a pilot app that regularly receives praise from audiences for its clean and straightforward design. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Pixelmate’s efficiency and professionalism are hallmarks of their work. We have lean and transparent communication with their team; both the project manager and CEO are only a phone call away if an unusual issue ever arises. We track tasks in Trello, and a status call takes place every week to review progress, needs, and open questions and to plan next week’s assignments. They record meeting minutes and send them out immediately after each status call.

Any deadlines missed come from our side. Pixelmate provides gentle reminders about any deliverables our team needs to produce; in some cases, they are willing to take on more work to keep the project moving.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Pixelmate is a young yet highly professional company that offers a high level of technical expertise. Their team is collaborative, willing to listen, and enjoyable to work with. They add value by thinking not only as software developers but also as business users when building our app and advising on the UX. Anyone looking for an open-minded and organized vendor with startup-like enthusiasm and efficient project mechanisms should look no further than Pixelmate.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I sometimes prefer more phone communication over using Trello to assign tasks. However, Trello provides greater transparency for the overall team, and at the end of the day, that’s more important to me.

Feedback summary: 

The user-friendly solution received positive feedback from internal and external stakeholders. Pixelmate met every objective by being committed to success. Clear communication benefitted the collaboration.  

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of a running application called C'MON Run.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Pixelmate?

As a professional runner, I wanted to create an application for other runners that would stand out in the market.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

First, I presented my idea and Pixelmate made subsequent recommendations for the app’s various components. They built the solution for iOS and Android over five months. Although the partnership ended after the initial build, I expect to work them again on marketing and the app’s second version.

What is the team composition?

I worked with the co-owner, a project manager, and a team of IT specialists.

How did you come to work with Pixelmate?

I did a Google search and met with 5–6 app development vendors. I hired Pixelmate because their technical and marketing skills distinguished the team.

How much have you invested with them?

I spent $16,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in August 2017 and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’m happy with their work. Users are satisfied with the simple and helpful application.

How did Pixelmate perform from a project management standpoint?

Communication was difficult early on, but Pixelmate found a way to explain the process using accessible language. The project manager was helpful, providing options—as well as their pros and cons—at each stage.  They were mostly responsive via email. We also used Trello, Skype, phone calls, and video calls to coordinate the partnership.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Pixelmate delivered on every request and desirable.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Pixelmate did everything to give their best effort. However, the younger team would benefit from more managerial resources and skills. That would improve the customer experience and help the company grow.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO of Exovikendy, a tour operator company headquartered in Czechia. We serve clients in both Czechia and Slovakia.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Pixelmate?

We hired Pixelmate to design and build our new website, including the e-shop and admin interface. 

What were your goals for this project? 

We needed our website to go live soon but wanted to avoid compromising the UX quality and legal compliance. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We searched online for web designers in Czechia and compiled a list of about eight vendors. In the end, we selected Pixelmate due to their professionalism and ability to offer a comprehensive solution. There were also interested in a prospective long-term collaboration to do web design and online marketing. 

Describe the project in detail. 

We had a series of kick-off meetings and conference calls to discuss the site build. After agreeing on the technical specifications and deadlines, Pixelmate’s team provided the initial design, which suited our needs. We worked with them to develop the design further and implemented additional requirements. They then delivered a new website with an e-shop component and admin interface. 

What was the team composition? 

They've provided a project manager who serves as our main point of contact, but there’s also a team representative who deals with any technical issues. We’ve met the whole team in person and have held several conference calls with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The website is live, but we haven’t promoted it publicly yet, so there hasn’t been a lot of anticipated traffic. Regardless, we’ve received absolutely positive feedback so far. During the development, we gave continuous feedback, which Pixelmate implemented immediately.  

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs? 

The project manager has been easy to communicate with. He provides us with updates, answers our inquiries, and passes our requests on to the appropriate team member. We use Trello to handle any technical issues and hold conference calls when necessary. They’ve always been capable of responding very quickly. 

What did you find most impressive about this company? 

We’re most impressed by their commitment to the work. Progress has been fast right from to start, and they’ve found solutions to numerous technical challenges throughout. 

Are there any areas for improvement? 

No, not that I can see. We’ve been more than satisfied with Pixelmate’s overall cooperation and performance. They’ve provided high-quality service, and the results have met our expectations to the fullest extent.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the project director for MotorMate GP, a mobile app startup that provides travel guidance and information for the motorsports industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with PixelMate?

We hired PixelMate to build our mobile app from scratch. We wanted the design to be user-friendly for both our target audience as well as for our internal team, so we could easily make updates within the CMS as needed. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

PixelMate designed and developed our mobile app for both iOS and Android, working off some of our storyboarded concepts and design ideas. They provided input on how we could best achieve the UI and designed some branding elements as well, including a logo.

What is the team composition?

I work with a project manager, who manages a team of designers and developers behind the scenes.

How did you come to work with PixelMate?

A consultant I worked with previously recommended a few options to us in the Czech Republic area, including PixelMate. After meeting with them, I felt they were the most interested in our project and offered competitive pricing. 

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent somewhere between $30,000–$50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in April 2017 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app PixelMate developed has received a lot of great feedback from users, as well as some large sponsors. We haven't had many bugs or issues, and they've been quick to address anything as it comes up.

How did PixelMate perform from a project management standpoint?

They've been great at managing tasks and I especially appreciate their adherence to quoted deadlines, since we work with a strict events calendar. We mostly communicate through emails and Skype, but we're also able to meet with their team in person every four to six weeks.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their ability to meet all our deadlines sets them apart–that's hard to find in the development industry.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I don't have any specific advice, but I'd definitely recommend them to others who value being able to meet with a team in person, because they're very receptive to that. Their business practices are also very friendly to the practices of Western Europe and the Americas, which makes them stand out as an option compared to a vendor elsewhere in my opinion.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The apps have maintained a 4.4 out of 5 on both the App Store and the Google Play Store since their launch. Monthly downloads have increased by 86%. An open and collaborative approach to the project was central in its success. The team still addresses issues, maintenance and fixes bugs.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder and CEO at Smart Touch Entertainment. We produce web and mobile applications for kids.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Pixelmate?

I needed a reliable development partner to help us build one of our apps.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They managed development for our Android and iOS applications. The app is a learning platform for kids that supports 27 languages and teaches kids how to pronounce different words.

While Pixelmate added several small designs, we provided the majority of the app’s UI. We’re still working together; they manage any issues of app crashes while implementing ads and tracking revenue.

What is the team composition?

I worked primarily with management, but there were three or four developers on the project.

How did you come to work with Pixelmate?

They were recommended to me by a friend. I checked their portfolio and it made me confident in their quality of work.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested about $30,000 thus far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in July 2017, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The application is quite new, so it’s a bit early to gather metrics. However, the apps have an average rating of 4.3 out of 5 on both the App Store and the Google Play Store. Our monthly downloads have also increased 86%.

Pixelmate fixed a number of bugs at no additional charge before delivering the final app. The team is very professional.

How did Pixelmate perform from a project management standpoint?

There have been project managers on both sides. We’re based in different cities and communicated mostly over Skype with weekly status emails. We have access to the testing process, which has been very helpful for us. They were patient throughout development, despite our numerous requests and changes. They always provide assistance in finding the best and right solution.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The workflows they implement to solve problems is very effective. I’m very satisfied and will definitely hire them again for our next project.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Go for it. They’re a great team to work with.
