Feedback summary: 

White Widget delivered quality work that pleased the client by fulfilling all of their requests. The agency is praised for the excellent work they deliver at an affordable price. White Widget is highly recommended to others.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Our company helps business create a loyalty program. We provide restaurants and stores with their own loyalty platform.

What is your role and responsibilities?

I'm one of the founders of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal for working with White Widget?

We were just starting our business, and we needed a developer to create the original platform on which we are basing our business.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

The app allows our members to register their account, earn points, redeem points, and check their balance. We gave White Widget the concept and the design for the app. We handed them a spec sheet. We needed them to code the development of the app. The main interface that our members would transact with when they when in the store and bought something, it was a tablet that would be presented to them to allow them to earn points. White Widget was also involved in adding and creating all the necessary functionalities.

What was your process for selecting White Widget?

We did some research and created a short list of four companies. We reached out to them and got proposals from each company. We knew some of the White Widget team, so we trusted them more than other companies. They were also more affordable than other companies. We chose them for those reasons.

Can you give a sense of the size of the initiative?

The size of the project was under $10,000. It took about two months to complete.

When was the work completed?

The project was completed in 2013.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Do you have any statistics or metrics on the project?

Our app is a B2B [business-to-business] app. It's not for consumers to download from the App Store, so we don't have metrics to share. However, we are very happy with the app that White Widget developed for us. It allows our customers to do everything that we need the app to do.

Are you satisfied with their performance?

We are very satisfied with their work. White Widget is definitely good value for the money.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or that you might do differently?

I probably would have wanted it to be completed sooner, but knowing that they have other projects as well, and they're building their own games, it understandable. Overall, it was a great project.

Feedback summary: 

White Widget contributed to a functional app that receives positive feedback from its users. The client praises the agency for their ability to deliver quality work in a timely manner. White Widget are highly recommended to others.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We're a company that produces management software for the construction industry.

What is your role and responsibilities?

I'm a senior developer. I manage all the mobile development including iOS and Android.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal for working with White Widget?

We were working on a project that needed native iOS and Android apps. We developed the iOS app in house, but didn't have the time and resources to develop the Android app. We realized that outsourcing this project was the best solution.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

Since we have already developed the iOS app, we already had all the core functionality and some of the UI [user interface] completed. When we approached White Widget, we showed them the iOS app, and they gave us advice on how the app should look on Android. They gave us mockups on how they envisioned the app. Once we approved the concept, White Widget took over the development process.

What was your process for selecting White Widget?

We looked around at various outsourcing companies from Australia and overseas. We also looked at some from the U.S. Resources are very tight in our company because we have various projects running at the same time. We looked at a lot of Southeast Asian companies because the time zone fits better for us being based in Australia. 

We short listed a handful of companies in Manila that did Android development and we interviewed them. White Widget was really interested in being part of our project. They also have a great portfolio, which really won us over.

Can you give a sense of the size of the initiative?

The project took six months to complete. The size of the project was in the $20,000 to $50,000 range.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Do you have any statistics or metrics on the project?

The most important result is that our clients are very happy with the app. We gave them a simple app that didn't require any kind of training or tutorial. Most of our customers have to go through two or three days training, which is a lot of cost for them. With this app, they just pick it up and start using it. It's a very intuitive app, so they were very happy with it.

Are you satisfied with their performance?

We are very happy with White Widget's performance. They developed a great app, and the project was completed ahead of time. We went through a few iterations with White Widget, and they were very accommodating in implementing those changes. They are at the top end of mobile development. 

Is there anything unique or special about White Widget that really makes them stand out?

They were very open and really listened to our feedback. They were always happy to discuss any issues that we had. They always wanted to find the best solution. We didn't have a lot of experience in Android app development, and we wanted a partner to offer their input. White Widget was very good at providing advice on best practices on how to build an Android app. We learned a lot from partnering with White Widget.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or that you might do differently?

I really can't think of anything.

The White Widget team was involved with the entire iOS app development portion. We contributed the front-end design, and they did the back-end. They also provided the quality assurance, user interface, and user experience part of the project.

What was your process for selecting White Widget?

We interviewed seven development firms and then proceeded to get SOWs [statements of works] for five of them. We then had one final interview selection process where we decided to go with White Widget.

I would keep in mind the time zone and make sure those are synched. They're in Manila, so it may be more challenging from the West Coast.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or that you might do differently?

No. I really can't think of anything that I would change about this project.
