What was your process for selecting The Sound Pipe Media?
The Sound Pipe Media was recommended by a friend. Having visited the website, I became aware of its client profile, and this had provided me with some confidence that the company was suitable to be shortlisted based on its experience. Following my first telephone conversation with Taj [Dhunay, CEO and founder of The Sound Pipe Media], he reassured me that The Sound Pipe Media was able to develop the app within the agreed time and budget.
More importantly, Taj’s personal approach with wanting to help with other non-development aspects of the project, such as marketing, had really set his company apart from other firms.
The Sound Pipe Media was selected because of its uniqueness, we felt the company and its services differed from many other companies. The company was able to deliver our business goals for the project within the agreed period, and at the right budget.
Taj provided us with a background of his development team and, reassured us that the company had the relevant experience to develop the app required for our business. I found it helpful that Taj was very approachable and open when answering specific questions about the development of the app itself.
In what parts of the project was The Sound Pipe Media involved?
The Sound Pipe Media was responsible for the development of the app as a whole, this included design and development of the iOS/Android app, website development, and marketing.
