What was the scope of their involvement?
I provided Xicom the initial wireframing, which they improved upon. Using this foundation, their team developed the front- and backend of the app for Android. They configured a map tracking feature using some of Google Maps API and a voice recognition feature. The active tracking portion of the app was difficult to create because there was nothing like it on the market at the time. Unlike many other tracking features, this technology was tailored to continually provide precise coordinates within seconds to help with urgent kidnapping cases and critical injury cases. They also devised a help button that directly connects with the tracking technology, so users can easily convey their location and connect with emergency operators. They're now helping finalize the app and helping with our launch efforts.
What is the team composition?
I work with a project manager, a senior sales associate, and a senior project analyst. In total, I work with about eight of their employees in total.
How did you come to work with Xicom Technologies Ltd?
Due to the size of my company, my decision primarily depended on the vendor's price. I conducted extensive research into finding the most professional and cheapest vendor with the best reviews. I was disappointed found many vendors that were asking for enormous sums of money just to discuss my idea with them. In comparison, Xicom were approachable and eager to take on my project at a reasonable price.
How much have you invested with them?
We've invested $7,000 thus far.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started in November 2017 and the work is ongoing.
