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.
