What challenge were you trying to address with Stuck in The Sand?

We needed help moving our business forward, so we reached out to Stuck in The Sand to develop our mobile app, market our product, and network to meet investors and potential clients. The purpose of the app is to help business owners improve productivity by limiting and preventing employees from using cell phones at work by motivating them with rewards.


What was the scope of their involvement?

I provided their team with specific requirements, and they applied their knowledge to improve our vision as they developed a mobile app for Android and iOS, along with a web-based administrative platform to manage it. Features include GPS capabilities and a timer that records user time in order to reward employees for minutes spent in the app.

They've also shared business knowledge, educated us on what tools to use as a startup, and introduced us to influencers, investors, other startups, and clients.

We work with about eight people, including a social media marketing expert, three consultants, and a couple technical leads.
