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.

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.

They also helped us tell our story in a more investor-friendly way, giving us the tools to be able to speak to potential investors and grab their attention. 

How did Stuck in The Sand perform from a project management standpoint?

They've met all of our deadlines thus far and exceeded many of our expectations. They're also very open and proactive in communications, visiting our office every day.
