Mobile app "Fly with Alex", an aggregator of air tickets discounts with the ability to subscribe to a regular search for the exact tickets you need. At first this idea was implemented by me as a subscription through the Mailchimp service. The project was rapidly developing and required more and more time for support, automation and a mobile application.
I was looking for startup app developers and I saw an advertisement for such development on Google. At first I planned to make a mobile application, but the Start Mobile team suggested that I first automate the whole system and make my own mailing system, and then connect the app to that system.
We made the first launch of the project in six weeks. After a while, it started generating regular income and has now paid off its investment;
The goals set at the beginning of the projects have been achieved;
About 300,000 users are currently using the service;
Apple AppStore placed our project in "Best Applications of the Week";
We were able to establish a process of step-by-step work on the project with frequent regular updates and have a separate test site to experiment with the project;
The project keeps developing and we are constantly expanding our user and ticket database.
What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?
1. In addition to custom development, we constantly discuss new ideas for project development and conduct brainstorming sessions. This is especially important when you make a startup;
2. A good understanding not only of the IT component of the project, but also of marketing;
3. We have managed together not just to release an application, but to make a relatively complex and successful project, which is gradually becoming global;
4. I see that the success of my project is just as important to Start Mobile as it is to me, and it is a pleasure.
What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?
I can see they're doing their best.
