It’s an educational kids’ app running on Android and iOS. In a fun and entertainment manner, through games, quizzes, playing video and audio, the app passes on valuable information to kids and develop such useful skills as attentiveness, assiduity, motivation, teamwork, etc. Content management is designed as a curriculum structured thematically. Themes are accessible gradually – when one theme is completed the next one becomes

available, and so on. There are Parents and Kids sections. Parents’ section is accessed through PIN code or fingerprint identification. The application is based on the freemium model.

We’ve built the REST API upon previously developed by us specifications. Amazon S3 was chosen as a media hosting service and Brightcove player was implemented for operations with video files. For deep linking and invitation system, Branch was selected. Subscription functionality was implemented by the use of standard billing frameworks provided by iTunes and Google Play.  Code coverage is another priority we adhered in the development, besides every development stage was accompanied by the active involvement of our QA team thereby ensuring stability and quality of the end-product. The application is published on Google Play and iTunes at the moment and is well-regarded in the USA.

The web application contains a tool to create their own tours and add required hotel bookings and other items. The user is able to create, edit and manage trips, send them for review to other users as

recommendations.

The application for displaying content obtained through REST API built using NodeJs was developed using ReactJS. PostgreSQL, MongoDB and Redis DBMSs are used as data warehouses. External APIs as Yelp and TravelNXT are exploited for obtaining relevant data and booking hotels, flights, etc. Amazon Web Services – cloud computing platforms infrastructure – was chosen for deploying the application. The service is developed with PWA technology.

TravelPlan app

All-in-One travel platform that allows booking everything from air-tickets to tours. When the user types in the final destination, the system picks up the best options for a trip automatically, offers them to the user and allows to pay immediately. The app notifies the user about available flight discounts, and also to tip the user off about other pastime options in different points on the route. There are 2 options for login:

email and Facebook account.

We've developed the whole project - website, mobile applications, and backend. To create a design, that meets Material Design requirements, we’ve used standard solutions, as well as new custom widgets created by our developers from the scratch. We’ve integrated such services as Google Maps, push-notifications and Facebook login. Quality control of the application was conducted by writing unit and integration tests, and also with assistance of our QA department. We used the Crashlytics Beta framework to quickly deploy the application to devices of our testers and the client.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Their flexibility and ability to adjust to changes are their strongest attributes. They were given a complex project and completed the requirements successfully. Overall, the collaboration has been a positive one. 

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm a web consulting company, and we do all types of development. We use UPlanet as our subcontracted company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with UPlanet?

I was looking for additional sub-contractors that can help me specialize in certain development skill-sets, PHP, Java Script. etc. I just needed additional resources to scale and handle more projects.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

There are multiple projects that they've been involved with. With some projects, we had nine different developers from UPlanet who were helping with the development.

For one specific project, they helped me develop a large CRM sales portal. I was the main architect, and UPlanet executed the requirements. They brought in the right developers with a specialty in PHP frameworks. The customer’s needs were complex. They needed to manage a number of different aspects of the business, including between the sales representatives and the customers, as well as the orders. They were able to handle a project from beginning to end.  

The collaboration has lasted eight years, and it has been a very positive relationship. They've been excellent to work with.

How did you come to work with UPlanet?

In 2007, I interviewed with many different companies and at the time, they seemed to be most qualified. They were still at a very small stage, and I needed a company that could grow with me. It turned out to be a good match for my needs.

What is the status of the engagement?

We started working with them in April of 2007 and the collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Nothing is perfect. There's always struggles, but they have adjusted really well. They've plugged the right holes, and that's why I continue working with them. I've tried other outsourcing shops, and I found UPlanet to be the most capable and able to adjust to my needs as fast as possible, which were the most important factors for me.  

How did UPlanet perform from a project management standpoint?

I would rank them very highly because they have been very responsive. I'm on call with them almost every single day. We also use various project management systems.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I think they adjust to the needs incredibly fast. They go out of their way to make the right adjustments and make the project successful.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There are always things to improve upon. Specifically, they've improved their QA significantly in the last year, which has been very helpful, but there is always a next level. The resource management has been an issue sometimes, but this is very natural, and most companies experience this.
