The Presidents Club

The President’s Club is a loyalty reward program app, a concept created by Samsung, to honor its loyal partners and distributors. It wanted to extend the service through a mobile app interface with smooth UI/UX for easy use and navigation.

Samsung wanted to thank their loyal patrons for their continued trust, partnership, and association, helping it to be a market leader in its industry.

It is this idea of sustaining and strengthening the client-vendor relationship that companies come up with special memberships. Loyalty reward program apps are  created to reward loyal clients for their dedication to a brand and for always being a returning customer.

Samsung thought on the same lines and decided to do something special for them, to thank them for their patronage.

Samsung introduced The President’s Club membership for its loyal partners. This loyalty reward program app provides customers bespoke benefits, exclusive member access to premium services...

Reward Butler

Track Employee Rewards with Ease

Companies have realized that one of the best ways to keep employees motivated is to reward them for targets achieved. In this way employee goals are aligned to that of the organization’s and it’s a win-win situation. However, most of the time, given the sheer scale of records and logistics that need to be maintained, companies often refrain from tying goals to rewards.

To address this issue, our client came up with the ground-breaking idea of Reward Butler that handles this complicated issue with ease. A reward management system app with smooth and seamless UX/UI that coordinates the rewards system of the company.

Choose and Enjoy Your Rewards

Through Reward Butler, employees can not only just track the points they have earned but also choose their rewards from a variety of options and follow through it without having to depend on any other third-party app.

Club social

Why just have a single club membership when you can access more than 300 clubs worldwide?

Enjoy Access to Global Clubs
More often than not club enthusiasts have access to a single club. Club subscriptions are an expensive affair which makes this truth inevitable. Our client, however, came up with a disruptive idea of pooling in a number of premium global clubs into one single app which you can access with a single subscription. Upon becoming a member, Club Social opens to you a world of premium global club access, where you could holiday and enjoy superior benefits. The app with its smooth UX/UI provides you with rich features and easy navigation to scroll through hundreds of club options for your next holiday or for a morning of golfing.

Access Premium Global Club Experiences
You could access any club, in your vicinity, which is listed with the app to use their services, be it their swimming pool, gymnasium, lounge, or restaurant. You can make...

Community Social

As the numbers of gated communities increase, there is an increasing need to manage the resources housed therein. Realtors are bringing to people, luxury apartments with a number of utilities. They have swimming pools, gymnasiums, saunas, Jacuzzis, and party halls. Some of the communities that house multiple high-rises, with more than 300-350 people living in each building, make utility management a mammoth task. Residents generally use communication channels like emails and Whatsapp nowadays to address this problem. Through these mediums they can keep everyone connected and informed.

However, the challenge crops up when it comes to actually managing the utilities and events. Neither of the two mediums help in handling RSVPs, schedules, calendars, or features like outsourcing services. This is where, our clients, the realtors who believe in giving their clients and residents better features, came to use for assistance and we gave them Community Social.

How Does It...

Go Champions Go

This app takes a proactive approach towards ensuring better employee health and fitness levels. Corporations try many different routes to improve employees’ happiness index. They organize parties, outings, flash mobs, and provide health insurance schemes to take care of that. However, our client came up with a more direct approach that makes working towards good health a task of the employees. It makes more sense, as their fitness ultimately lies in their hands. To make this idea work, our product development team brainstormed with the clients to create the Go champions go app.

How does it work?
Go champions go is a mobile app which works in collaboration with corporations. Companies enroll their employees into the app and thereby track their fitness efforts in the form of steps taken and heart rate. The company sets the goal of a certain number of steps; upon reaching which the employee will be rewarded through holidays or other useful perks.

Feedback summary: 

Roars Technologies has consistently positioned themselves at the forefront of innovation and technology. Wielding a diverse range of technical expertise, the team is well equipped to apply creative solutions to challenges. They understand business needs and craft technologies to address them.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of an investment company that supports and helps develop technology projects. We’ve done work for clients in both Asia and Europe as well as East African countries.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Roars Technologies?

Before reaching out to Roars Technologies in early 2006, we had troubles with quickly gathering a team that could develop some of our custom technical solutions. We needed resources that could create an e-commerce site with social networking features, soft sales, and video reviews. Initially, we worked with two other vendors over a six-month period but were disappointed with the results. As such, we engaged Roars Technologies to meet our development needs.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Since contacting them over a decade ago, we’ve completed numerous projects with them. Generally, we collaborate with them to develop concepts, draw them out, and implement them. We produce a technical roadmap, which they then break down into a set of modules and estimates, outlining the time frame, resources, and costs. They also identify any potential risks early on and inform us prior to the engagement. Once we agree on the project scope, we move forward with development.

We’ve done three major projects with them so far. The first project was in 2006. It involved creating a custom-made e-commerce site with social networking capabilities for a cosmetics client. Roars Technologies wrote the code using PHP, which was a relatively new language at the time. The site allowed users to upload an image of themselves into our system. Our software would then analyze the image and tell the user their face type, detailing which cosmetics would work best for them.

For the second project in 2010, they developed a mobile payment system, which posed a lot of challenges. They used our team’s specialized algorithm to build the software. The system included all of the backend administration, which enabled us to overcome credit card fraud across both landlines and online transactions. Essentially, we needed to send a signal across a traditional landline, revert it back to a digital signal, and then back again to analog to go through our servers, all in under two seconds. The mobile device would then produce an acoustic signature, which could be decoded.

Roars Technologies’ team faced several technical difficulties along the way. For example, because we designed this product for emerging markets, we wouldn’t always have 3G coverage. Therefore, we had to rely partially on general packet radio services (GPRS), which had delay issues. Roars Technologies solved the problem by building the system alongside peer-to-peer retail telephone- and internet-based transactions. By building upon that same underlying technology, they were able to develop a working solution.

They’re currently working on a third project, building an MVP for a second screen application. The software would allow any advert to be played on a second screen for clearances. We need to fulfill about two million transactions every two seconds, which is no easy task. However, they continue to support our development. They’re also collaborating with us on another project involving blockchain AI.

What is the team composition?

I primarily work with their founder, but the team includes between 25–40 people.

How did you come to work with Roars Technologies?

As I’ve mentioned, we’d previously worked with two other vendors but weren’t happy with the discrepancy between the expectations and outcomes. When found Roar Technologies, we conducted a series of Skype calls and did an unscheduled onsite visit to interview the team. We gave them a few simple challenges to assess their abilities and felt comfortable with the results.

The team was proficient across several formats, from database design and infrastructure to web development and NODE.js. They also knew a wide range of languages, including C++ and Python. They had a strong understanding of how architectures and environments could be managed and demonstrated the right mindset to approach our technical problems.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $350,000–$500,000 thus far.

What is the status of this engagement?

Their work began in May 2006 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We enjoy working with Roars Technologies because they don’t think like traditional technology companies. Other agencies tend to approach the project from a business analyst approach, taking far too long to develop a business proposal. Furthermore, they try to upsell solutions that may not fit the actual end audience. In contrast, Roars Technologies focuses on the commercial challenges and requirements, tailoring the technical solution to suit our needs.

Their team has a good grasp of commercial concepts and offers crucial insights into the development. At the start of the project, they invest a lot of time in the discovery phase to go over concepts and explore how the application could work. These detailed, high-level discussions about our commercial aspirations help define our applications. As a result, we consider them more of a technology enabling partner than an outsourced company. Their efforts have proven invaluable in speeding up our implementation in the market.

How did Roars Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

Although agile has only recently become ubiquitous, Roars Technologies has been using an agile methodology since the beginning of our collaboration. This has allowed them to work quickly and flexibly. By breaking the development into manageable parts, they’re able to build module after module in a scalable way.

They appoint different managers based upon the project needs and team, which lets junior developers gain more practical experience. They then divide the project into phases and deliver the product based on established time lines. We provide them with an overview of the next 18 months to accommodate shifts in the market. We’ve never had problems with deadlines, and if there were delays, it was often caused by third-party factors.

In terms of communication, we talk to them via Skype, Slack, and phone. We’re also able to call them regardless of time differences. We can reach out to out to their coders directly, and they’re responsive to our inquiries, often replying in real time. Beyond a weekly meeting with the wider team, we also hold a general meeting with the founder to keep all parties updated. Though I’m not a particularly technical person, they’ve always been quick to explain concepts and explore specific options for our clients.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Roars Technologies is responsive, timely, and forward-thinking, and we’ve built a strong relationship with them. I’ve found that having trusted partners and networks is pivotal to scaling any business. I also appreciate that they’re not just looking for a financial reward. Rather, they care about their work. They’re passionate about building concepts and creating projects that generate social change. They work quickly, transforming commercial needs into programs. Even if we’ve only had a discussion, they’re able to create wireframes for the next meeting and approach us with ideas. This has been really helpful because it speeds up the entire process.

Are there any areas they could improve?

While they’ve delivered great outcomes, I would like it if they took on more work. We generally approach them to see if they can do a project for us, or, at the very least, handle an aspect of it. So far, they’ve been selective about the types of projects that they do because they’re focusing on being more of an innovation-technology partner. As such, it’s below their skill level to just do small, basic campaigns. Plenty of companies can do simple three-month projects, but only a few can develop a project from concept to delivery. We trust their thinking abilities and would like them to increase their involvement.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Don’t be afraid to be open with them about your commercial aspirations because they will never disclose your ideas. Being straightforward early on allows for frank discussions, which helps expedite the process. Additionally, don’t hesitate to ask tough questions about why one technology solution is better suited than another. They’re happy to offer insights into their reasoning.

Feedback summary: 

The launched apps quickly garnered a significant number of downloads. Roars Technologies was committed to meeting expectations and sent regular updates that kept the project moving forward. However, they could still improve their visual design and messaging.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of a delivery service for food items. We also have a courier service.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Roars Technologies Pvt. Ltd.?

We wanted to develop an app that was sound, cost-effective, and acceptable to our target audience. Unfortunately, we’d lost money while working with other Indian companies.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Initially, the founder of Roars met with our tech team and stakeholders to exchange ideas. Once we sorted out the wireframing and decided what the product would look like, Roars developed our minimum viable product (MVP). After fine-tuning the MVP, they launched it in the market.

What is the team composition?

I engaged with Rinkesh (Founder, Roars Technologies Pvt. Ltd.) on a daily basis.

How did you come to work with Roars Technologies Pvt. Ltd.?

Clutch helped us identify potential suppliers. I was looking for a company that was within our price range and had the highest ratings and the most number of views. After receiving quotations from three companies, we chose Roars based on what other people testified about them.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from October 2017 until May 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve had a lot of downloads for the iOS and Android apps. However, we still need to make some changes and resolve bugs. We will then launch and market the apps on a larger scale.

How did Roars Technologies Pvt. Ltd. perform from a project management standpoint?

We conversed via email, telephone, Skype, and WhatsApp. Our communication was strong, so there were no surprises. They kept us informed about how long the project was going to take and how much it would cost.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were nimble and talented.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Due to the language barrier, we had to work on the language and the tone of the scripts. We had to make sure we were delivering the right message to our target audience. Roars could also do better with graphics.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I recommend Roars for app development. They’re a one-stop shop. Aside from the technology part, they can also provide SEO, social media optimization, and web development. They even have a call center if you need help with marketing your product. If you want to grow your company, go with them. I’d also advise people to consider the value to cost proposition and what they want to achieve.
