The Review
Feedback summary: 

They're responsive, stay on top of their deadlines, and accomplish excellent results. The project is ongoing, and efforts remain focused on product improvement.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the co-founder of a sports website that performs an inventory of broadcasting data related to sports events. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rosberry?

We have a large audience across all types of broadcasting: on-demand, live, and retransmitted. We package broadcasts and deliver them to our fans through apps (iOS and Android), website, and social media. We didn't have an app, so we were looking for someone with expertise to create an iOS and Android app for us. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They did everything from design to implementation: created the app interface, added different features, and performed updates. We had an initial idea, and they helped us develop it.

The app is integrated with GooglePlay and Apple app store and offers in-app purchases through those systems. We're still in a discovery phase, so there is more to be done.

How did you come to work with them?

We searched for freelancers online. After interviewing them via Skype and speaking to their developers, we chose them.

What is the status of this engagement? 

We started working with them in 2013, and the collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app has 3 million users and a 4+ star rating. We get 300-400 emails and messages a day. We have committed followers who notify us if something goes wrong. The constant feedback we get on all the platforms helps us improve the product.

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

We engage with them when we want to add, improve, or tweak something. They share with us specific documentation, which we agree upon. Then they provide a specific timeline and stick to it. We use email and direct messages to get in touch with them, and they usually respond promptly.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They're technically proficient, effective, and very capable.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have a good idea of what you want them to build, and they will deliver an excellent product.

Feedback summary: 

Rosberry’s programming expertise, listening skills, and ownership of the project helped produce a high-quality app that has 5-star ratings and gets 1,000 daily downloads. They contributed valuable ideas, however, they could improve on the project management front and in post-project availability.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of Phyzseek, a company that offers a workout motivation mobile app for men and women. I’m currently developing the strategic vision for market expansion to include not only the consumer market but the gym market as well.

People usually have trouble getting and staying motivated to work out and many workout regimens are not effective. Phyzseek uses multiple motivational levels to encourage users to get off the couch, work out, and keep them coming back for more, such as real-time feedback during the workouts, easy 1-touch tracking of workout performance and health metrics, competitive motivation, and social encouragement.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rosberry?

I wanted to develop a fitness app and had no in-house technology team at all.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I had the concept of what I wanted to do and presented my ideas to their project manager. Then, he worked with the designer, the backend resource, and the iOS developer to bring the project to fruition, but weren't involved in launching the app.

The idea behind the app was to take the fitness program that I developed as a doctor and with my understanding of exercise physiology and use that to create workouts that people can follow from their phone. There are thousands of these apps in the market already, but we wanted to distinguish this app by creating features that would help stimulate people with the understanding that different individuals are motivated in different ways.

We had to incorporate several kinds of features to tap into all those different types of stimulus. One of the features was a real-time heart rate monitor built directly into the app. Other features include a built-in timer so you’re forced to work out within a specific timeframe. The app also records all of the user’s results automatically, so when a user repeats a specific work out, the app compares the results to the previous time and all the previous times before that, allowing them to see the progress, which we found very motivating for others.

With so many people doing the workouts from all over the world, users can compare their workout performance and health metrics to others around the globe. We also incorporated a social network because users want to be able to interact and influence one another. All of these things inspire users to achieve results.

What is the team dynamic?

The team consisted of a project manager, a couple of backend resources, 2 design resources, and 2–3 iOS developers. The designers created each screen and showed us the way it should be laid out in terms of UI/UX [user interface/user experience]. The iOS developers programmed the app itself; there was one that was the lead developer, but sometimes they worked together.

How did you come to work with Rosberry?

I went on Upwork and interviewed a lot of freelance developers. I quickly realized that hiring individual freelance developers would've been a huge coordination challenge. So, I decided to hire a company that could provide an entire team that would be able to develop my app.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around $90,000–$100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

After 13 months of development, they delivered a great product. The work is ongoing for improvements to the app.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Rosberry did an amazing job. Not only did they listen to what we wanted but also contributed their expertise to make it the best it could be and explained why their way may be better. They truly had a very positive impact on the final product.

The app is rated 5 stars across the board; we’ve updated it 7 times already. We have 155,000 downloads as of this week and get 1,000 downloads a day. There are 77,000 registered users.

Last week, we had an interesting thing happen with the app which I’m still trying to figure out. There are probably 100,000 fitness apps on the App Store and we’re consistently ranked at around 500—in the top 1%–5%. We jumped to number 22, ranking number 1 in 14 countries, top 5 in 35 countries, and top 10 in 45 countries. Now, we’ve dropped back down again and I don’t know what happened.

How did Rosberry perform from a project management standpoint?

The first project manager I had was a complete disaster and one of the worst people I’ve ever worked with—I complained and he was quickly fired. They brought in this other project manager that was amazing, and while he’s no longer with Rosberry, he was one of the best persons I’ve ever worked with in my entire life. He took my ideas and converted them into an action. All the documentation and wireframes were provided by him; he organized the process including the way things should be linked and what they should look like.

What did you find most impressive about them?

As far as the quality of the app and the work they did, it was very high. There were certain things that weren’t working correctly and I had to prove it to them so that they could fix them, but overall, we had a great experience with Rosberry.

They produced a great app, listened to what we wanted, and delivered above our expectations. Some of their best attributes were the continuity of the team, expert programming, ease of use, and taking ownership of the project to the point of truly caring about the final outcome.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They should hire another project manager like the one they had and the owner of the company could be more flexible. Nowadays, they’re actually somewhat difficult to work with because they’ve moved on from my app, so they don’t have time for me anymore and it’s hard to get them to respond. Once you develop an app with a certain company, you have to stay with them.

If I hired another team, it would take them a long time to figure out what Rosberry did. I want to make improvements and they're only available for short projects that take 5–10 hours; I actually need them to do things that may take 100 or 1,000 hours. They shouldn’t abandon people that paid them close to $100,000.

Feedback summary: 

Rosberry received many praises for their ability to fully understand application ideas and provide suggestions for improvement. Their talented development team was timely, delivered quality coding, and expressed exceptional communication skills, making them a strong candidate for future projects.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a small mobile app development company that started three to four years ago. We create apps for iOS and Android.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rosberry?

We don’t have any coding experience, so we were looking for a company that could handle that for us. We went through dozens, if not 100, offshore companies. We selected Rosberry, and it has been smooth sailing since.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’ve done three to five apps with them, including multiple updates. Sometimes we've given them the design and sometimes they have handled the design, as well as the coding. We always come up with the ideas, they work their magic, then give us a finished product. If we had a poor idea or a poor plan, they acknowledged what the complications might be and gave us suggestions for other directions that might be better.

They use Objective-C for iOS and Java for Android. They also use PHP for backend development. One product we created is a social networking application for iOS and Android. It's a way for people share their Snapchat, Instagram, and other social networking usernames to find other people to talk with and share interests. It's a large social network that has over a million people right now. There were some challenges along the way, but Rosberry handled them.

How did you come to work with Rosberry?

We posted a job on a freelance website and their portfolio stood out. We also liked the vibe we got from Rosberry and the general manner in which they communicated with us.

How much have you invested with them?

We have spent between $100,000 and $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We have worked with Rosberry since 2014 or 2015. They are continuing to work on small updates for our applications. We don't have a large project for them right now, but that may change in the immediate future.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It has been overall, very positive. We don't have any coding experience, so without them, we just had ideas. They've meant everything, really. With any application you create, there are things you won't find until thousands, or tens of thousands of people, are using them and then you'll find a little bug. Rosberry is very fast at fixing those.

How did Rosberry perform from a project management standpoint?

They're great about assigning a project manager as our main source of contact, and they communicate with the developer on their team. What did you find most impressive about them? Out of all the companies that we've dealt with, we don't have any problems with them. They were always timely with getting back to us. They gave us updates even when we didn't ask for them. They were just perfect in every way.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There's really nothing that stands out to me.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Rosberry?

I would say that they're the perfect company to go with. Yes, they're offshore, but they speak perfect English. They understand all the issues that your project might face, and they provide solutions. They're extremely talented at what they do.

Feedback summary: 

The iOS team exceeded expectations in terms of productivity, and they are highly recommended. The Android team also delivered satisfactory results. Rosberry communicated well and provided added value by doing high-level project management for free.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a global network for institutional investors. We provide an informational advantage when they are looking to invest in private markets.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rosberry?

We wanted to develop a mobile application that would deliver content to institutional investors and allow the exchange of real-time messages.  

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We provided the concept to Rosberry, and they helped us design the overall user experience as well as the functionality of the mobile application. The app allows you to get access to content relevant to institutional investors, including news, alternative assets, job opportunities for chief investment officers, and director-level jobs. The app also manages rank leads and interviews. It also has a real-time messaging system.

Rosberry developed the app for both the iOS and Android platforms. We have a number of third-party libraries and dependencies. They helped us push the application to the market and make sure it’s available for download on iTunes and Google Play.

What is the team dynamic?

The team varied. At the beginning of the development process, they had a team of 3 iOS developers and 3 Android developers. We engaged with 1 UX [user experience] person in the very beginning, and then we had iOS and Android teams. Once the core functionality was done, we ramped it down to 1 developer per platform. Overall, the number of people that were involved were 6 developers, 1 UX person, and 1 QA [quality assurance] person.

How did you come to work with Rosberry?

I had worked with them in the past, that’s why I chose them to participate in this project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We provide services to a very small group of people, so the adoption rate is relatively proportional to the number of people we are engaging. It has met our expectations.

The productivity of Rosberry's iPhone development team was unbeatable. If you are looking for a high-quality team to develop a mobile application for an iPhone, then Rosberry should certainly be your number one contender.

How did Rosberry perform from a project management standpoint?

They did well. It helped that we speak the same native language. I didn’t have any issues with them in terms of communication.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The impressive part was they actually provided project management for free. I don’t know if that’s common, but I didn’t have to pay anything for the high-level project management for their side. That was nice. Their iPhone team was also absolutely outstanding.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The Android team was good, but perhaps not as exceptional as the iPhone team. I would not penalize them in the reviews because quality-wise, they are delivering great results. The productivity of the iPhone team was absolutely ridiculous, in a good way.

Feedback summary: 

Over 500 downloads within the first two weeks after launch evidenced a remarkable increase for this field. This unique team surpassed expectations with superior understanding of the project, great communication and progress updates, attention to detail and deadlines, and flexibility.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the director of Designthex. I freelance as a UX designer taking customers from design through to the end development of apps, websites and other IT products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rosberry?

I was working with the University of New South Wales on a project for their home-modification department. They had a need to communicate with people facing disability or aging challenges and needed to modify their homes. There was a need for advice on the many types of grip rails, different heights they can be installed at, and so on. It’s a complex area which people don’t often think about until they have an urgent need. This app would help them through the initial decision on modifying their homes, restructuring them so that they can receive assistance.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The scope of the project was to take our concept and make it accessible. It was done through a series of co-design workshops in Australia between Rosberry and people in our demographic. From there, we created initial wireframes and continued to evolve the project creating end-to-end UX design. Together, we went through development into testing and launched to Google Play and the Apple Store, working with my co-designer and me every step of the way.

The app was designed for both Android and iOS concurrently which was a challenge. It’s a decision-processing tool that guides users on what they need to modify within their homes. It’s a relatively simplified workflow with the first screen providing a choice on where the user needs assistance. The second decision is what exactly they need assistance with (are they feeling unsteady, for example). The app will provide a choice of recommended products which will fit that need along with explanations on what each product is good for, when it should be used, what measurements need to be made, and so on. There is a detailed process around each specific product, and it allows people to jump in and out of the workflow in order to explore different generic items. If they make a decision to buy, they can leave the app, and go to the recommended places for finding those physical products. Inside the app, we also have standard feedback forms and contacts. The other major part is video, with four clips of people within the demographic explaining how they’ve done their modifications and how that has impacted their lives.

How did you come to work with Rosberry?

I found them many years ago through Elance. I have been working as a project and program manager for over a decade and Rosberry has been unique. As a team, they listen to what my intentions are instead of just looking at the requirements. They have challenged the wireframes I’ve sent them over time and took the project to the next level making it even better. As a UX designer myself, I have enjoyed working with a team that excels in this area. Their quality is phenomenal.

How much have you invested with Rosberry?

The cost of their work on this particular product was AU$25,000. [$19,000]

What is the status of this engagement?

I started the initial conversations with Rosberry around this project in late October of 2016 and the design was started at the end of December. A first working version was released within six weeks for testing. The product was officially launched on the 19th of May 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

We saw over 500 downloads within the first two weeks after launch. This may not seem like a lot but for this demographic, it’s a huge number. It’s not what could be called a popular or exciting topic.

The minister for age care and disability of New South Wales University was present at our launch along with 50 other people and media coverage. It was phenomenal to see this sort of interest.

How did Rosberry perform from a project management standpoint?

We have come close on a particular launch, but Rosberry hasn’t missed a deadline. Their performance has been better than most of the other teams I’ve worked with. They haven’t cut corners by making imperfect code. There have been some occasions when the team contacted me on Skype to let me know that a deliverable would be delayed because they found a bug in the code.

I am a project manager myself, and I love being managed back. Rosberry was good at communicating progress which relaxed the overall work. I didn’t have to worry about asking for a status report, and was always pinged on Skype with our current standing. Rosberry had a laid back but constant way of keeping me in the loop.

Once time, we reached a sticky situation, and they worked the entire weekend and delivered code to me at 2 AM in order to have a presentation at 9 AM the next day.

What did you find most impressive about Rosberry?

Attention to detail, flexibility, and understanding the actual outcome, versus the simple specifications. Rosberry has looked beyond the surface.

In this particular project, there was a very specific additional challenge in making the app usable by the visually impaired. This was the first time that Rosberry had worked on a full accessibility app so it had to pass color blindness tests and everything else. They stepped up to the mark, did their own research, took what I supplied, and went well beyond that, making sure that the app would be compliant. They didn’t simply want to pass accessibility, but to adhere to best practices for this area.

Are there any areas Rosberry could improve?

No. They designed some beautiful wireframes. Rosberry and I were challenged by our co-design team, and we’ve had to soften the design a lot in order to shape around their desires. Rosberry handled this challenge very well and had the flexibility to not only push for the right way to do something but to also make sure that the client was happy with the results they were given.

Feedback summary: 

Rosberry’s passionate, thoughtful team simplified two complex projects without sacrificing intuition or beauty. Their communication was transparent, as well as accommodating, and they weren’t afraid to present a solution even if it resulted in a smaller budget.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder of Big Eyeball LLC, an indie publisher of iOS photo/video apps located in Los Angeles. We are the creators of the Cinepic application, which has gained a following among Instagram users. The follow-up app, Beatmix, has just been released, and both apps were developed in collaboration with Rosberry, including the Android version of Cinepic.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rosberry?

We wanted to create a video app that would combine video with music in a way that was intimate, visceral, and fun. The app needed to be very simple and have responsive feedback that made creation and discovery intuitive, as well as rewarding. Our Cinepic app did well on Instagram, so it made sense to use it as our target platform again for Beatmix.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Rosberry reimagined our initial descriptions and visualizations in a way that created an iconic user experience. They created a seamless combination of elegant design and bulletproof code.

Usually when working with Rosberry, I provide them with video/motion demos, wireframes, or before-and-after output examples, and then they come back with thoughtful ideas. I usually allow them the liberty to run with their ideas, because even if it’s not a good fit, they’re not combative in regards to alternative solutions.

The first app was initially for iOS, and came out in July 2015. It did well enough to where there was a lot of demand for an Android version, so Rosberry made one that was Android compatible because they already had in-house expertise.

The second app just came out on iOS, and if we have enough demand, we’ll consider going forward with an Android version. It’s a video editing app which takes content from users’ libraries and outputs a result. Much of the app is video-related, and we didn't want people to have to wait for rendering times, so it is highly responsive.

Rosberry is good at coming up with something and explaining exactly how they got there, which is a practice that should be adopted by other providers. Ultimately, Rosberry’s ideas are very smart, because they’re informed about all aspects from a technical standpoint.

They were also good at focusing on simplicity, which is the core tenet of the app. Users open it up, press a button, and magic happens. There are layers to it, but having a good first experience is essential. Rosberry’s team is always current, and they have a sense of what’s possible when facing a challenge.

What is the team dynamic?

I worked with their UX and UI team members, and there was also someone who helped with graphic design. I’ve also had 3-4 iOS programmers working on the latest app, and there have been 4-5 people simultaneously working at any given time.

We used Slack and other tools to stay directly connected. Rosberry was able to pull in people with varying expertise to make certain parts work well, which was key because no one programmer had to handle everything.

How did you come to work with Rosberry?

During the last 3-4 years, I’d come up with a format which combined static movie posters with glimpses of film trailers that provided quick, cognitive experiences. The format became popular on Tumblr, and I realized it could be used for different events. I was originally making them out of GIFs, which was time-intensive because it required working in Aftereffects.

Another indie app publisher introduced us to Rosberry because they had great success developing a collage photo app with them. After being put in touch with Serge [CEO, Rosberry] and his team, we established a connection that would become the foundation of my iOS app. We’ve had a good relationship ever since.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $10,000-$49,999.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in January 2017, and the project ended in June 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Rosberry understands how to simplify a complex project, and they do it in a way that feels elegant and intuitive. They are a part of a small subset of developers who can execute well across all disciplines required for successful app development.

Communication isn’t just about being prompt, but also about thoughtfulness and transparency. Rosberry completely grasps this concept, and they also understand our goals. They present us with options if they feel there’s a better way of doing something, even if this advice translates into a smaller budget.

How did Rosberry perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re located in Russia, but I’ve been able to communicate with them via Skype. The bulk of our communication is through email, because it allows me to organize my thoughts and achieve a level of specificity using visual aids.

Serge’s English is phenomenal, including idioms, and we can speak in a way that is almost transparent.

They are also responsive and good at explaining their reasoning. If I’m following up with them, I try not to create a rush because past experience has taught me people should be given time to do what they’re good at.

If I require more transparency, they provide at least three different tools, including Slack. These platforms are helpful because I’m not having real-time conversations. Rosberry has communication methods which can work according to whatever the specific level of daily involvement is.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Originally, I had sent the finished iOS app to a company in San Francisco to inquire about an Android version, and they tried to charge me a discovery fee. I went back to Rosberry, and they gave me a good price as well as the ability to have all the expertise under one roof.

I’ve found through many development projects that preparation and code commenting saves time in the long run, and Rosberry is thoughtful in this regard. Their team has remained passionate about their work, and I’m fortunate to have found them. I’ve also grown close to Serge and his team, which has been mutually beneficial from a creative standpoint.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

I evaluate the value of my relationship with Rosberry by their ability to identify what is transferable and what is important, no matter what approach we take. They are able to participate and take care of things, and they enjoy collaborating. They confirmed my belief that if someone is dedicated and thoughtful, they will reap the most benefit from a project.

Through daily standups, weekly reviews, and open communication, Rosberry’s delivers advances on time, within schedule, and with high quality. Their transparency and capacity to address issues straightway make them a great partner.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m one of the co-founders of an early-stage startup based in Europe. We work on a data-driven sales platform for the gastronomy industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Rosberry?

Restaurants have very few ways to conduct personalized marketing. We wanted to provide our target customers—medium-to-upscale restaurants across Europe—with the same tools and data that online shops already use.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were looking for external developers on Upwork that provided good value for the money, but not exactly the cheapest one. From there, we created a shortlist of potential firms that we thought would be a good fit for our project and asked them to send us a proposal for the job.

Rosberry delivered a detailed plan, including action items and cost estimates. They were also very open to feedback and invited us to visit their office, which is why we decided to go with them.

Describe the project in detail.

Rosberry is working on the development of a native app for users, the web app for the restaurants, and an admin tool. They’re also supporting us with the user experience.

The project started in March 2017 and we’re expecting it to last for quite some time. We want to keep working with Rosberry even after the initial launch.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Rosberry has been very transparent about their capabilities and available resources. Their deliverables are almost always on time and within budget.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They stand out in their timely and open communication. They don't try to hide issues whenever they arise and they don't make promises they can't keep.

The app has 140,000 downloads, an average session time of 20-25 minutes and 50% of users are active content creators. Rosberry is highly responsive and easy to manage. It took time for the team to see the larger vision as opposed to a short-term project, but Rosberry has proven dependable long-term.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

HaikuJAM is an iOS and Android app which allows strangers to come together and write poems and stories collaboratively. Our product has been live for close to two years. I am a cofounder and project manager of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rosberry?

We were building and expanding a prototype. We were at the idea stage, and needed a partner to develop our app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Rosberry initially built the iOS app and backend of our system. It was followed by the Android version, on which we continue to work. We have integrated standard Facebook functionalities through the platform’s SDK.

They were involved in building the architecture of the system and setting the ground work, while we handled design in-house. We provided wireframes and briefs on what users should be able to do, and Rosberry took it from there.

People can connect with each other and write together. Haikus are short, three line Japanese poems. On our app, three people can write different lines in turn, and there is a social network built around this form of creation. Stories and poems can be published and shared, and people can see each other’s profiles and create writing circles within the app. Users can continue writing with their own groups, and add more people.

How did you come to work with Rosberry?

We researched online using Elance (now Upwork). Rosberry seemed to have a good portfolio at an affordable rate, so we chose them.

How much have you invested with Rosberry?

The cost of their work has been around $190,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Rosberry in August 2013. This will be our final week with their team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Rosberry has helped us since the start. We have 140,000 downloads, and 25,000 active monthly users. Weekly actives number around 8,000, and daily ones, 5,000. On average, each person will spend 20-25 minutes in the app, and 50% of our active users actually write a line, so they are content creators.

How did Rosberry perform from a project management standpoint?

They helped us project manage initially. Over the years, as our relationship grew, we took over project management ourselves and had direct access to the developers. It was up to us to manage the workflow and see how Rosberry’s team was doing, rather than having to follow up with their management. Generally, their developers have been very responsive, and, whenever we needed emergency help, they were there for us.

What did you find most impressive about Rosberry?

I haven’t used many other development companies, but Rosberry has been with us since we started, and have been a part of the journey. Without their help, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

Are there any areas Rosberry could improve?

At the time, Rosberry was just starting out as an agency, and there could have been better development planning. They were focusing too much on the short-term, but it didn’t make too much sense to delegate a lot of time on creating the perfect solution. We didn’t know if our app would be around.

What business challenge were you trying to address with Rosberry?

We were looking to develop an app that allows users to buy retail products. It's a very simple concept: preorder, walk up, and collect.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

There are three apps. There's a front-end for consumers, for both iPhone and Android. There's the iPad app, which is for the shops. There's also the back-end, which works through both of them. Rosberry developed all of those bases. Once the app was in the app store, marketing wasn't requested. I did the graphics and the design. They did all of the coding in between, and they were phenomenal.

How did you come to work with Rosberry?

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

Everyone I've shown the app to has been impressed. We're at the stage of doing launch, so it's in the very early days.

How did Rosberry perform from a project management standpoint?

They were very precise. I never had to worry about the milestones or schedules. Rosberry kept me informed before I even asked. I do project management as a profession. It's lovely to have people who run as precise as I do, if not better.

What distinguishes Rosberry from other providers?

They don't look at just at what you've asked them to do. They look at the intent, and they're willing to suggest alternatives, which will save you money or extend the design. Rosberry actually looks at the end-user experience, and that's where they put all of their time, energy, and effort into.

Is there anything Rosberry could have improved or done differently?

No, seriously, this team is gold. I wish I had more jobs so I could keep them employed nonstop.
