Making light work of business

Work-life is full of heavy lifting. So we design apps and mobile systems that help you lighten the load.

We work with UK businesses to help them find better ways for customers and staff to get things done. 

Enabling staff to be more productive

For workers on-site, in-store or on-the-road, apps can help them get things done with less headaches. We deliver mobile workforce solutions to help businesses operate more efficiently.

Making life easier for customers

An app can play an important part in your overall customer experience. It will make customers happy because they have an easier time interacting with your business. This creates engagement and loyalty. For example, one of our clients transacts over £50m a year from their mobile app, serving 24,000 customers each day.

Partnerships

We believe that it's really important for you to get results from your mobile app venture. That's why we listen to your business case before we start working with you. And we only accept projects where we see a long term win-win opportunity.

We look forward to helping you make your business even more awesome using mobile apps.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Pocketworks’ efforts have been met with positive reception. The team is professional, knowledgeable, and has a strong work ethic. Customers can expect a well-oiled team that gets the job done.

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 design and development manager at Scanprobe Techniques. We manufacture and develop pipe inspection systems.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Pocketworks?

We are slowly moving to the software side of pipe inspection, and we asked them to develop a mobile app to map out and trace drainage via mobile devices.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built the app using Google Maps, and overlay symbols and design techniques. They also interacted with our system box, to send files from our controlled box to mobile devices, to make it easier to share via WhatsApp and DropBox.

What is the team composition?

Lee (Production Manager, Pocketworks) is my main point of contact. I've also worked with Tobin (Founder, Pocketworks).

How did you come to work with Pocketworks?

We looked at a few developers, but Pocketworks seemed to have more of an understanding of what we were trying to achieve. Being a business, you have to click with the people you're trying to work with. They seemed to fit the bill in regards to technology, the way they approached us, and we get along with them personally, which helps. 
 

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent in the neighborhood of £180,000 (approximately $230,000 USD)

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in November 2017, and our engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Their work has improved our product and brought us into the 21st century. Having an application was new to our side of the business, but now it's the thing that everyone wants to use. Pocketworks helped thread technology that we would've otherwise ignored. They've got a good work ethic and they're very professional, which is why we're still using them They keep us informed with the latest technologies, are very helpful, and forward-thinking.

How did Pocketworks perform from a project management standpoint?

With the sprints, they send us an update every week, and it tells us how far through the project they've gone, and how much of the budget they've spent in percentages. We can also test the app as they work on it, and then tell them our preferences as we go along until we're all happy.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They add a personal touch, which is nice. They've come to one of our biggest shows and even helped us set up to show customers what we have to offer.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Hand on heart, they're one of the better companies we've worked with. They did underestimate the budget the first time around, which caused a bit of friction, but since then they've been making sure the budget is closer to what they'll actually spend. They'll also warn us if they think they're going to go over budget.
