What was the scope of their involvement?
Tyrannosaurus Tech developed a web app, on which customers can create a profile and fill in their information. Customers input their name, their dog’s name, information about themselves, updated vaccination records, and photos of themselves and their dogs. My team provided some design parameters, such as keeping the logo and colors the same, but we mostly gave Tyrannosaurus Tech the liberty to create their own design.
They developed several features within the app. For instance, if a dog’s vaccination is about to expire, the app notifies us beforehand so that we can let the customer know they need to provide updated records. Tyrannosaurus Tech created an area where our employees can take notes and record “strikes,” such as if a dog is aggressive. They also enabled us to take payment within the app by integrating our POS system and our app with Square.
What is the team composition?
Shannon (Lead Technical Project Manager, Tyrannosaurus Tech) is our main contact, and I work closely with her. I also work with Richard (Owner & Partner, Tyrannosaurus Tech). My team has limited interactions with the backend programmers, but they’re available anytime we have questions.
How did you come to work with Tyrannosaurus Tech?
I searched for local app development startups on Google and came across Tyrannosaurus Tech. After looking at some of their previous work, we reached out to them. We met with around five agencies, but Tyrannosaurus Tech gave us the best feeling from staff and programmer perspectives. Their business seemed pretty cool.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent $70,000–$80,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
Our work together began in April 2019, and it’s ongoing. Tyrannosaurus Tech just showed us the first mockup. We’re doing training next week, during which they’ll show us what the full-functioning app will look like. After that, we hope to launch within two weeks.
