Appello Software successfully redeveloped the product using a different framework. They were constantly on-time and on budget. The project management was handled well. Communication was extremely effective. They were also highly flexible.
I am the co-founder and CEO of Foxo Technology. For the last two years, we’ve been building a health communication tool for clinicians to communicate within their institution or beyond their institution to other organizations. It is much like Slack, WhatsApp or Microsoft Teams, but purpose-built to help with integration into information systems for doctors. It also has purpose-built environments for clinical communication and collaboration.
We’ve been building our company for about two years and are about to go commercial. We required a native version of our app to be built.
I did some searching online. I came across Appello Software and did a lot of interviewing and reviewing. I looked at company ratings and reviews—it might’ve been the Clutch review that really sold it for me. Communication was constantly stressed, which was absolutely critical for a very complex product like ours. I was also looking for someone that could understand our problem, our technology, and our requirements. I didn’t want to work in cycles—I’ve worked with a number of offshore agencies and it’s extremely frustrating when you get a product back that isn’t what you required.
I put communication as the number one priority as well as their ability to execute and get the job done to budget and specifications. I think to have that experience of knowing where the downfalls with recruitment agencies are and where to put your focus, which is communication, helped and Appello’s reviews on all of that were consistent with what I was looking for.
It’s exactly what we required. We didn’t go to them asking them to develop something new for us; it was really more to redevelop our product but better using different frameworks and knowledge, which they did. They know exactly what they need to do. The requirements of what we asked them to do were delivered on time and to budget.
What do you like most about the company?
I was looking for someone that would be available to answer questions, refine, and make sure that we were on track the whole way. Their communication was outstanding.
Their flexibility to work within our requirements was impressive. They’re very flexible in terms of the framework and language that we could work in. The team is diverse enough to pivot towards our requirements in another language they don’t typically work with.
