PROJECT SUMMARY

Ready4S developed a website and a custom iOS and Android savings app for a fundraising company. The team also developed a platform that enables users to access the products. They redesigned brand collateral.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a fundraising company for schools and non-profits. I am the CEO and founder of the company so I am responsible for all major decisions and oversee implementation.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Ready4S?

We hired Ready4S to build us a completely new custom app and website that worked together. We have a membership platform that users would need to be able to log into our website and/or our app and receive the same service. We also needed a platform on our website to be able to register students to be able to participate in fundraising efforts as well as a platform to allow users to register on our website.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goals were to complete a new iOS and Android app that worked along with our website to provide a service to our users.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

The clutch reviews are what led us to Ready4s. We were considering hundreds of different app and website companies and narrowed it down to about 10 who we would contact directly to speak in depth about the project. From there, we talked for hours with many companies and got a better idea of pricing and weighed the quality versus pricing aspect. We then had our top 3 companies picked out and Ready4s was one of them. We ended up going with Ready4S because we felt they understood the project the most and assured us this was in their wheelhouse.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They created a savings app and website for us. They built an entire membership platform where users pay to sign up and then have access to our app and website. They helped with a rebranding of designs that we previously had as well.

What was the team composition?

Throughout the project we had about 15 developers, designers, or team managers working on the project. The vast majority of the time, we had one or two people working on each different aspect, iOS, Andorid, and website. The size of the team constantly changed based on need. We ended switching a team manager about 25% of the way through, and then we ended up losing and assigning someone new for the Android part of the project right towards the end.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Although it took longer and cost more money than originally thought, the product they produced 
is top notch. We have not had any problems with any bugs or anything to this point (knock on wood). Additionally, their coding is very neat and clean and documented very well. I happy with the level of quality they produced.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We had a couple different project managers throughout our time with Ready4S. Our last manager was on the project for 90% of the time all the way through completion. Living in Florida, and them working in Poland didn't affect the project at all. They were really good at getting back to me within the next business day if I sent them something late in the day, for most of the project. At the end, it got a little hard to stay in contact and get answers but it ended up working out.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their quality of work was most impressive.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I would say price and time estimations could be improved on, but keep in mind that we were creating a custom product that ended up creating unforeseen problems and things that we needed to add along the way. I also would say response time could be improved. For the first half of the project, it was wonderful and very immediate. My suggestion would be to even just reply confirmation of the question, complaint, or other correspondence as I understand some things take time. But I would just like to know they received it.
