Role: CMO at Fivestar Training
I was the CMO of Fivestar Training, a funded mobile tech business that leveraged the iconic Fivestar brand to produce a suite of youth sports applications that incorporated pro-level instruction across various sports. We wanted to produce a cutting edge mobile application that served up premium sports instructional content and training programs to the masses. We needed a great development company who can build out our entire product. We also had high profile celebrity athletes on board like Wayne Rooney and Alex Morgan (both global soccer stars), among others, so we needed a partner that was used to playing at high levels. Utility created everything from UX and UI design services to mobile technology services, backend technology services (including server setup), CMS [content management system] web platform development, website design and development, and strategic digital counsel. They basically handled an end-to-end buildout of a slick mobile app, iOS only, that worked in all environments. I’ve worked with tons of digital vendors personally, and Utility stacks up with the best. I cannot risk my reputation when recommending or hiring firms, but I’ve only had positive experiences with them.

The most trusted firm in the business for premium mobile work

Role: President & Co-Founder at Football Genius
I’m the President of a complex play-by-play mobile application business that lets users predict plays for each NFL game in a season. We have cash prizes and social gaming features. We wanted a supportive development partner that could launch the app during the 2018 NFL season and Utility helped us built a custom backend. They had to develop the app from scratch. The app included features such as complex statistics, a prediction engine, and an admin panel that enables real-time updates. We launched the app midway through the season and also received incredibly positive user feedback. The app developed by the team of Utility achieved great reviews and significant social media activity from high-profile industry stakeholders. Users have stayed on the solution for upwards of 55 minutes per session, which is unheard of in our industry. This success enabled us to raise over $2 million in seed funding. Thanks to Utility for all the efforts.

Truly the highest quality and greatest attention to detail

Role: CEO & Founder at TOOR Technologies
I’m the CEO of a real estate smart-lockbox company. We worked with Utility as a full-scale mobile app and web development partner. We wanted high-quality, scalable, stable and technology systems to build our business on. The team gave us immediate attention and in-depth conversations right off the bat, and our meeting at their office sealed the deal. The team built the system’s backend infrastructure and server management tools. They also created a web application, an Android and iOS application, and a sophisticated Bluetooth and encryption integration between the apps and the lockbox firmware. The technology and applications they developed allowed us to launch the business and gain capital and prospective customers right away. We appreciate the extreme efforts and dedication of the team Utility to building products correctly and thoroughly the first time.

Utility was our trusted tech partner for a complex medical app startup

Role: President & Co-Founder at SirenMD
Our company is three years old, and we provide a HIPAA-secure environment for communication and documentation between caregivers. Utility helped to build a platform available on iOS, Android, and Web - SirenMD. Our primary client bases are high schools, colleges, and professional athletic teams, as well as hospitals, urgent care centers, and other types of health systems. We are the mobile electronic medical record for all things sports medicine. Utility’s primary responsibility was buildout the entirely new platform, followed by developing and adding new features ongoing. Utility in terms of speaking the developmental language, then conveying to us exactly what we needed to do. They had great recommendations, and one of our staff members had had a good experience with them in the past. Working with Utility for a long time was a positive experience throughout. The company helped both in terms of product maintenance and adding new features. The total number of organizations or teams we work with have increased from zero to 35 in the one-year span of working with Utility. Clients have complimented the great UI/UX, simplistic layout, and ease of navigation. They were always attentive and got back to us when we needed it. Geography was not an issue, even though they are based in New York and most of us are based in South Florida.

Utility make everything easy for us, and delivered at super high quality!

Role: Account Executive at Clarity Staffing
Clarity is a recruiting firm in New York City. We needed someone urgently to take over our web/mobile design and development, as our previous developer was not delivering and we couldn’t wait any longer. Utility took over everything. We needed to clean up the previous developer’s work, tons of it, and develop the new things we wanted that we simply had not gotten to yet. They first fixed everything, then they helped us implement many more dozens of features and functionalities (and redesigns) that our previous developer never got to. They helped with graphic design, UX, UI, backend and frontend development, QA, testing, and release management. The project they inherited required a lot of code refactoring and improvements before they could stabilize the product and help us prepare it for a public re-launch. They were definitely creative and proactive. Utility typically takes on larger projects, but they saw the potential in working and growing with us. Things went really smoothly even though we moved really fast. They were totally in control and organized. They're extremely thorough, which, for non-digital people, makes it nice since we don’t know what we don’t know. They also provided us flexible pricing in all the service we took from them.
