Educational Digital Platform Development to Transform Classrooms Image

Educational Digital Platform Development to Transform Classrooms

Kimple is a global organization in which diverse views live together to generate and distribute innovative-current-educational content. Wolox joined the project to develop the platform and generate the content for Computational Thought. 

To build a transformational education platform with youth-empowering content, it was essential to present a differentiating solution,

highlighting its design and usability. 

The platform development was marked by the insights generated during the Product Thinking and UX Design stages, as part of a 100% user-centered process. 

The key to product success is the combination of a highly experienced team in the creation and management of educational projects with an involved and disruptive team

 

Retail Mobile App for Business Management Image

Retail Mobile App for Business Management

Natura, a global cosmetics company, personal care, and hygiene, needed to improve their app "My Business", which was build originally to help sales consultants to manage easily their business and sell the products in Latin America. Wolox joined the project to improve the app and keep on challenging the limits. The key was to understand thoroughly the different users localized among Argentina,

Mexico, Peru, Chile, and Colombia in order to create the best product and meet the needs that each of them could have. 

 

The initial tasks were the correction and improvements in the app's features, placing always the users at the center of the strategy. It was key to understand the differences between the markets and the expectations in each country, to create the desired final product. From there, the UX and UI work was a great challenge. Besides, the backend was developed from scratch, so the client had an intermediate to facilitate the app's management in every scenario, obtaining this way a 100% independency.

 

From the worked done together with Wolox, MyBusiness got great results:

- 800,000+ users in Argentina, Mexico, Chile, Peru, and Colombia use the tool to manage their orders and keep track of their career in Natura.

- The app's score increased in the app stores: from 2.5 to 4.5 since the launch of the new version.

 

- There were added new features such as Histories, to share content with all the community of MyBusiness, and My Group, which allows the Leading Consultants to follow-up their teams.

Insurtech Mobile App Development for Efficient and Effortless Self-Management

Partnered with Wolox, Sura embarked on the most ambitious digitization project for the company.

We embarked in the creation of a new digital platform that included all of Sura's services to create a powerful channel to relate with customers directly. Together, we developed a seamless navigation process, that helped consumers in their time of need, ridding them of

unnecessary and time-consuming bureaucracies. We paid extra attention to the back-end development since the functionalities required integrations with tow-truck companies and their GPS tracking systems.

Some of the key functionalities are Waiting Time Estimations, Tow-truck GPS Tracking and Mobile Assistance Request.

Healthtech App to Provide Patients With On-Demand Doctors' Coaching and a Social Support Network

PRIME (Personalized Real-Time Intervention for Motivational Enhancement) is a mobile application that seeks to provide patients with on-demand coaching from clinicians, tools to meet treatment goals, and a social network of  young people facing similar challenges with their mental health. The application is specifically designed to target reward-processing impairments and enhance motivation.

A tailored and

highly-qualified Wolox team was key to the success of the project.  The team at Wolox began proactively requesting direct patient feedback in order to create more effective designs and flows for the platform. Taking a more user-friendly and patient-focused  approach to design, resulted in a more engaging product.

It was with Wolox’s standard deployment of agile methodologies, that they were able to approach the creation of the project iteratively, learning and improving every step of the way.  

Wolox used the SCRUM methodology, engaging in biweekly sprints followed by team meetings with tech leaders. For this reason, Wolox was able to seamlessly meet deadlines while maintaining high quality.

First Argentinean Fintech Online Platform Development Image

First Argentinean Fintech Online Platform Development

As part of its innovation initiatives, Argentinean bank Banco Comafi entered in 2016 the race to create a product that would truly transform the financial landscape of the country. With this goal in mind, they began working on Nubi to modernize the FinTech landscape of Argentina by introducing the first online platform to make recharging and withdrawing money from a PayPal account through local banks

possible.

With a very tight launch date, Wolox proposed an agile development strategy that prioritized the key aspects of the product. We created a user friendly interface to disrupt a stagnant category while developing a complex backend architecture that needed to comply with strict Argentinian financial and legal regulations. 

In this scenario, Comafi and Paypal together with Wolox managed to design, develop and finally launch Nubi in just 7 months.

Eco-Friendly Mobility Solution Development Image

Eco-Friendly Mobility Solution Development

Green Commuter is the only all-electric vanpool provider in California and the first eco-friendly company to combine vanpooling and car sharing in the US.

To address this challenge, Wolox had to seamlessly work with Tesla API on a technology that had never been used before in a project of this kind.  Wolox’s development teams were able to work efficiently effectively as a remotely based

team,  integrating with Tesla and creating a cutting-edge product.  

Keeping in mind the client requirement of optimizing and maximizing the amount of poolers, Wolox had to create a complex algorithm to ensure the cars are available on demand, while taking into consideration a plethora of other restrictions. The solution was developed for iOs and Android, with functionalities like Facilitate vanpooling, Car Sharing, Payment and Tesla Integration, and Fleet replacement.

Feedback summary: 

The project was successfully completed and the HR firm is happy with the final results. The team at Wolox provided excellent support and insight into the needs of users. Although project management could be improved, the quality of the work was good. 

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 am a partner at a human resources firm.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenges were you trying to address with Wolox?

We were looking to develop a human resources management platform that would allow employees to evaluate and manage their own performance, receive feedback, find training courses, and more.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided development support to build our human resources management platform.

What is the team composition?

We had a lot of rotation in the team. We had 5 different project managers, and the teams were around 6–7 people. In total, we must have worked with about 20 different people in different phases of the project. 

How did you come to work with Wolox?

They were recommended to us. They’re known for being a young, innovative, and agile company. So we reached out to them at first for a consulting project and from there, we started our collaboration.

How much have you invested in them?

We spent about $120,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started our collaboration in April 2016 and finished the development in 2019. We then had a pilot and after that, we’ve continued collaborating with them for specific things.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The solution has very high potential but we are not able to measure the return of investment yet. We were expecting to experience growth this year but the pandemic has been hard for us so it is difficult to have clear metrics. We expect to see the results in some months from now.

How did Wolox perform from a project management standpoint?

The project management had some complications, we started working with them in a time in which they were growing a lot, that involved changes that translated into team turnover and some delays. I guess once they consolidate this phase they will be able to administer this growth better. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

The support they provided was impressive. They have the skills to see and project the development of our project including how to monetize it, the needs of the users, and how to incorporate all of this in the product. They had a very good approach to synthesizing all of this and capturing the needs of our clients.

Are there any areas they could improve?

As I mentioned before, the deadlines and internal organization could be improved.

Feedback summary: 

The engagement started well, as Wolox excelled at brainstorming good ideas. However, the results deviated from stakeholders' specifications, their work was delayed, and their code had issues. Ultimately, their communication did not align with their actions. 

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 the head of product for an online consumer company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Wolox?

They were hired to develop our whole consumer-facing website. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The proposal was for them to redesign the frontend of the website and add some more features. It was built with JavaScript, and they were hired to continue backend developments using Ruby. 

Instead of redesigning the frontend, they rebuilt everything. They took a year to do a basic site rebuild from the ground up, which was not what we asked for.

What is the team dynamic?

The number of team members constantly changed. Most of the team was based in Argentina.

They told us they would give us some of their most experienced developers. Instead, we had younger developers who were still in university. 

There was always a team leader. In the beginning, we had an inexperienced project leader that was still in university. Later, there was a good, capable team leader who was getting things done. The people we interfaced with were much more experienced than the developers. When there were problems, they would jump in and help troubleshoot.

The project manager also had a good, senior team leader. But, they were still leveraging inexperienced members and didn’t put in enough resources to make sure the project aligned with our requirements.
 
How did you come to work with Wolox?

Our founder had a personal connection with the CEO and founder of Wolox. We sent out RFPs to a number of different groups and met with various partners, but our founder decided to partner with Wolox.

How much have you invested with them?

Initially, they agreed to deliver the scope for $65,000. 

What is the status of this engagement?

A project that should have taken only six months ended up taking over a year. The engagement started in March of 2018, and the engagement ended in April of 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

How did your relationship with the vendor evolve?

They made a lot of promises, then completely oversold and under-delivered halfway through the project. In the summer of 2018, we realized they hadn’t moved past the wireframes.

Then, they stopped the work, gave us a new team, and said, “You can either pay more for a full team and get the project completed in 3–4 months, or we can give you a skeleton team and finish the project at no additional cost.” 

So, we ended up going with the skeleton team. At that point, I believe we had paid them $45,000 out of the $65,000. 

We put our foot down and said they were in breach of the agreement. Then, they finally put a capable project manager in charge. He was very good, except he didn’t have much technical day-to-day control over the team. 

There are tons of mistakes and technical debt from the work they did. It had a lot of underlying backend problems, including database and DevOps issues. We’re just now discovering the magnitude of their mistakes.

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

They delivered a finished website that was not up to our specifications. It was as if we were building a house, but instead of getting a beautiful villa, we got a log cabin.

When you work with a partner, it never 100% conforms to the original proposal. But, I’ve never seen anything that deviated so much from an agreement. At the end of the day, they were in breach of the agreement in terms of scope and timing. 

Is there anything that the vendor did well or that you would consider a strength?

Their communication was great, and they overcommunicated if anything. A new manager they brought in spoke perfect English. They were able to provide a summary of the meetings.

They were good at brainstorming and coming up with design ideas. A lot of people we met in Argentina had a lot of commitment and drive. The project manager I interfaced with is an excellent statesman and a solid man. 

The problem was, they didn’t deliver on-time, and they didn’t deliver what they said they were going to do. Or, they didn’t have an understanding of what was agreed upon. We were always waiting on them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Other people might want to consider starting with a two-month trial period. They should also address the difference between design and implementation because that’s where things really failed with our project. 

Also, future customers should make sure they have all the prototypes. They should start with an agile scrum process where they start building early on (instead of focusing on design).

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 am an account director at Y&R within the health and wellness practice.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Wolox?

We needed a company to develop a chatbot for us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We developed a chatbot leveraging IBM Watson technology for a pharmaceutical client to help improve navigation on the current website. Eventually, we plan to use natural language processing tools as well.

What is the team composition?

We work with a project manager and their entire team, including senior leadership.

How did you come to work with them?

We wanted to find a reliable and flexible partner. Wolox was the first company we talked to that was eager to roll up their sleeves and partner with us. They were competitive within the marketplace and willing to work with our parameters.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in 2018, and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The biggest result is that we're going to have the first branded chatbot in the Rx category, which is a huge milestone for our client, Wolox, and our agency. The chatbot proves that we can continue to launch innovative products in a highly regulated category.

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

We're very happy with everything. They have a management team and an offshore team, but both became part of our team. We usually use email to communicate but we also have in-person meetings. Wolox stayed on top of every deliverable and let us know proactively if there was a hiccup—working collaboratively with us and with our client to resolve issues.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Some unexpected things always come up when you're working on a breakthrough project. We've worked with many companies that tried to nickel and dime us in the past, but Wolox became a true partner. We appreciated both the product that Wolox built and their company culture. We look forward to continuing our partnership with them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. When we ran into any issues, we immediately got on the phone and worked through them.

Feedback summary: 

Wolox utilized cutting-edge technology to deliver an innovative platform. Their experienced team of developers can easily adjust to a frequently changing project scope. While initial communication issues created challenges, they quickly improved and now perform excellently. They’re a cohesive group.

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 the CTO of Green Commuter. We’re an all-electric vanpooling and ridesharing service.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Wolox?

We needed a software development firm to build our product.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Wolox built our entire platform. This included developing the software, backend infrastructure, and unique APIs. Eventually, they delivered the system’s native mobile apps for iOS and Android. Wolox integrated the platform with technology from a large third-party company to ensure the complete version outperforms potential competitors.

The current product is a mobile ridesharing service that takes advantage of other vanpooling companies leaving their vehicles idle 90% of the time. By maximizing the use of these vehicles during the day, we make a more significant environmental impact and remove more cars from the road. We also offer fleet replacement services to companies and universities. We have a dedicated team at Wolox that continually implements additional features and functionalities.

What is the team composition?

They allocated 10–15 developers with the project first started. Now that the software is built, we work with a team of six developers to make changes and provide updates.

How did you come to work with Wolox?

I wasn’t working for Green Commuter when we hired them. However, I believe they were highly recommended to us by a colleague of our CEO.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in July 2015 and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’re a perfect match for us. Wolox possesses a flexibility that has become a great asset as they’re able to accommodate our seemingly ever-changing needs. They have a large team of developers that can seamlessly integrate themselves into ongoing projects. That level of customer service enables us to accept more projects and grow as a company.

How did Wolox perform from a project management standpoint?

We initially experienced some communication issues when it came to project management. They were a newly-formed company at that time and we didn’t have any resources well-versed in technology. As a result, mistakes were made on both sides. I was brought in to better organize the communication channels between us, and that process has worked well. I’ve noticed a vast improvement in their communication and management skills. The issues we experienced in the past have largely disappeared. They meet deadlines and take responsibility for when they don’t. Overall, they’ve grown quite a bit in this area.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their programmers are incredibly invested in our mission. Although they’re a third-party company, it often feels like they’re a part of our team. We appreciate the ability to call them up whenever an issue occurs. Even with the time zone difference, there’s always someone available to address our concerns.
