What was the scope of their involvement?
Ubik helped us build a working MVP from the ground up within five weeks, using the specifications we provided and a variety of technologies that were mostly modular or plugged in from existing tech specs. They provided frontend and backend resources to build the web and mobile-based platform, which involves many different blockchains (i.e., supply chain, logistics, and data management). They continue to provide support as we launch the platform and move into the next phase.
What is the team composition?
We work directly with Mike (CEO and Founder, Ubik Group), as well as two project managers and a team of developers on a daily basis. Members of their team are located in different parts of the world, so we pretty much have someone working on the project at all hours of the day.
How did you come to work with Ubik Group?
We heard of Ubik by word of mouth and through positive referrals from previous clients of theirs. We felt they had a very extensive and talented team of affordable developers, who also align well with our values and mission.
How much have you invested with them?
We've invested in the range of $100,000–$250,000, which will increase as the team scales over time.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started talking to them in October 2018, and they turned an MVP around within five weeks starting in January 2019. Our relationship is still ongoing and we anticipate working with them for the foreseeable future.
