"Their responsiveness and helpfulness make them impressive, and they were really amazing to work with."
INOXOFT led the development and design of the Android version of a social-based app that allows its users to gather another person's contact information through a simple scanning code.
Whenever they received a request for an update, modification, or bug-fix for the app, INOXOFT was readily available and responded within the hour with a solution. The app has received zero complaints from nearly 200+ users.
I am the founder and CEO of Chirpi, which is a mobile application. Chirpi aggregates all of a user's contact information, including their social media network and user names into a QR code generated for each user. With the app, a person can scan another person’s QR code and receive all their contact information.
What challenge were you trying to address with INOXOFT?
The application was already built for iOS devices, but I needed it developed for Android as well.
What was the scope of their involvement?
Since I am based in Canada, the first time I was developing the app, I wanted to be able to meet with the team and supervise the design more closely. For this reason, I had worked with a different firm to develop the application for iOS devices. INOXOFT then came on board to develop it for Android. Along with developing the app for Android, they also helped with some of the design, and built the Alpha channel logo, as I didn’t have this before.
I gave them three milestones that I required. For the first milestone, I wanted the first APK of the app and some screenshots. For the second milestone, they were to integrate the app with the cloud of Chirpi and Amazon web services. For the third milestone, I will need them to check for any bugs one-month post launch. INOXOFT has been very helpful and is always responsive.
What is the team dynamic?
I was only in communication with Maksym [Co-Founder, INOXOFT], from the team.
How did you come to work with INOXOFT?
I found INOXOFT via UpWork, and I liked their portfolio. Their cover letter showcased that they had some experience in translating iOS apps to Android apps.
How much have you invested in them?
I had spent $2,800 with INOXOFT.
What is the status of this engagement?
I started working with INOXOFT in July 2017, and the project was completed in August 2017.
What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
The app just launched two days ago on the Google Play store, and I am unable to give statistics on INOXOFT’s work just yet; however, from a customer’s point of view, working with them was really amazing.
How did INOXOFT perform from a project management standpoint?
If I had a crash or a bug, or if I needed there to be a design change, or if I didn’t like the way a notification appeared, I would just email them, and the team would take care of it within a couple of hours. I would then get a new update with the change.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Their responsiveness and helpfulness make them impressive, and they were really amazing to work with.
Are there any areas they could improve?
There is always room for improvement. Other companies I had looked at, were looking at a 3-month time frame to complete the project. Even timewise, INOXOFT was the best company I found. I have had no complaints from approximately 200+ users.
