Background

Project summary:

After outlining the design requirements, Buildable developed a mobile app for both iOS and Android.

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of Tangeloo, an app that helps people who have their own gardens to trade their excess with other folks within their community. It’s designed to promote healthy eating, sustainability, and a reduction in food costs.

Solution

What was the scope of their involvement?

Buildable built our iOS and Android mobile app. They worked with us to lay out what they needed from our in-house designer.

What is the team composition?

I worked with four teammates, including a project manager, developers, and a designer.

How did you come to work with Buildable?

I've been working with them since they were under another name. I had done numerous projects with them, so I was comfortable with the team. Rather than going through the process of vetting different developers, I thought it would be easier to put my trust in them.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $60,000–$70,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

This part of the project lasted from April–August 2020. We’re going to wait about six months before beginning the second phase.

Results & Feedback

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

The feedback I’ve received from users is that the app is simple, fast, and user-friendly. Our main goal was for the app to be user-friendly for all age groups. Buildable understood what we were trying to achieve and was able to translate that.

How did Buildable perform from a project management standpoint?

Buildable did sprints, and each one was managed by the project manager. Their project management was great. We had weekly communication with them, and sometimes more than weekly.

In the beginning, we communicated daily with them, and it was great. Every time I had a question, I would reach out to Buildable and they would answer promptly.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their passion was very impressive. The whole team was passionate about the project and was excited about doing the work. Seeing their passion brought back our initial excitement, which I don’t think I would’ve gotten from a different team.

What I liked about Buildable was that they didn’t sugarcoat anything; it was either yes or no. Whether the news was good or bad, they delivered it, which is how I operate. I appreciated their knowledge, passion, and honesty. I also appreciated their forthcomingness and ability to tell me what the best solution was.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, nothing comes to mind. It was a seamless and collaborative process. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to develop an app because I was pleased with their work.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

In order to be successful, know what you want and prioritize that based on your budget. You have to work backward by understanding your topmost priorities.
