What was the scope of their involvement?
As Tivix created our mobile app for iOS and Android from zero to completion, they brainstormed several creative avenues to pursue. We maintained an open dialogue and worked collaboratively to create wireframes. They took a fluid and flexible approach, rather than keeping things set in stone. Occasionally upon reassessment, we’d redo feature sets they'd developed when they found a better option. The team was willing to take chances and experiment to find the best possible solution.
Tivix built our mobile app for iOS and Android. Rather than being associated with an email address, it's strictly based on a phone number. The core features include a chat component, calendar, and scheduling functions. When a user sends out meeting invitations, the program indicates who can attend based on which parties have accepted, rejected, or haven't replied yet.
Outside all the technical requirements for our app, Tivix also supported our digital marketing and branding efforts. We’d been making some cosmetic changes to our branding at the time. We selected color schemes and designed icons and logos together, including the main one for our company.
How did you come to work with Tivix?
We searched online for companies that offer app development. Tivix had an impressive client list, so I conducted a one-on-one interview with their CTO that proved fruitful. I went to meet the team in person and liked their set up, which wasn't too big or too small. Their multiple locations provided some latitude for arranging meetings. Along with their office in San Francisco, they have one in New York that's very easy for me to get to.
How much have you invested with them?
We spent about $400,000 in total.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started our collaboration in October 2016, and it's still ongoing. We’ve finished the product, but Tivix is still on board for support with tweaking and troubleshooting. We work with them on a monthly basis, and they charge based on the number of hours they work.
