“When they gave us updates and they gave us receivables, it was actually pretty similar to what we wanted. Their customer service is great and their turnaround time to deliver us something was always accurate.”– Co-owner, COO, SNAPnSAVE.
The client is a shopping application – SNAPnSAVE, which allows users to take photos of everyday objects and get the related offers and deals to that object. The app uses advanced image recognition technology to identify the photo and produce related deals & coupons which can be used to buy that product from any retailer. AppInventiv Technologies was involved in developing the iOS application, a website and a merchant panel for them in the backend. The project is complete and is live on the app store though updates are still in progress. It took a little more time for the app to be on the app store than what was committed since the client planned to add more features and aspects to it but it was finished within the specified budget.
The client is highly satisfied with AppInventiv Technologies as they took enough time in understanding the actual requirement to deliver a good quality product. The client has already recommended them to their colleagues several times and continues to do so.
Designation – Co-owner, COO
Nature of Business – Mobile application
Objective & Scope
1. What is the objective of the project you did with AppInventiv Technologies?
We generally spend way too much money in college and we don’t utilize coupons and daily deals and promotions, so we thought of a way how can we save some money. SNAPnSAVE allows you to take photos of everyday objects and uses its advanced image recognition technology to create conceals of the photos that have been taken with coupons and daily deals of promotions with restaurants in your immediate area. We plan to market this thing around college campuses in the US.
2. What is the scope of the project? What all did AppInventiv Technologies do for you?
AppInventiv created an iOS app so they dropped an image recognition API into the app where it allowed us to take the photo and the image recognition created conceal through the photo with coupons. There’s also a backend merchant panel where the merchants can log in and upload the deals and those deals are paired with the image recognition and that’s how the both show up together. They did everything including design and development of the website, application and the merchant panel. The app is only for iOS right now.
3. What was the estimated timeframe committed for the completion of the project?
They originally quoted four to six weeks to complete the project when they started in June 2015.
4. How much time did it actually take for completing the task?
It actually ended up taking about four months to get the first version done just because it was a large project. Honestly, I think that this was one of their biggest projects that they took on because they are so advanced and have so many different aspects. They did a great job with deadlines appropriately and we were able to launch on time with all the bugs fixed. We also added another version before we launched it. We had more aspects done with our app to create interactive feeds, a coupon feed and a follow feed added into it before we finally launched it on App store in May 2016. So, the whole project took about nine to ten months.
5. Please provide an approximate figure (in $) for the work done?
This project is valued at two hundred thousand dollars.
6. Did they exceed the committed price point and why?
No, they charged us only for the changes like the upgrades and the things that we wanted to be done differently.
7. How did you come to know about AppInventiv Technologies?
We came to know about them through an online freelance job portal.
8. Why did you choose to partner with them?
They took the time out to really understand what we wanted to build. We looked at their portfolio as we thought we needed a good development team that can handle such advanced projects. They had the right credentials and we looked at their past projects and those looked good and we felt confident in them based on their past work.
9. Did AppInventiv Technologies evaluate your project scope and requirements correctly?
Yeah, they did, they understood. When they gave us updates and they gave us receivables, it was actually pretty similar to what we wanted. They sent us regular updates and progress on where they were in development. It was all pretty clear.
10. Did the company deliver as per your expectations?
They exceeded our expectations.
11. Are you satisfied with the sales and customer support service?
Their technical support is always great. They always were able to fix anything. Their customer service is great and their turnaround time to deliver us something was always accurate. Their communication was pretty clear and there was always a common understanding between the parties.
12. Is there anything that makes them stand out compared to other companies (core Strengths)?
Their portfolio is what stood out the most. People are going to ask the proof of what have you done before because everyone can sweet talk to you when it comes to what they have actually done in the past and that is going to talk more than what you are actually going to say.
13. According to you, is there any area that you think they can improve upon?
Everyone can always improve. Sometimes, they would deliver us an update and there might be a little bug here and there and sometimes they might have spelled something wrong. That was a small thing and it might not be the differentiating factor for someone to hire them or not. Nothing major otherwise.
14. Did they offer proactive consultative approach? (Technical advice, design changes etc.)
Yes, they always gave their insights on what would be best and we definitely value their opinion. We tried to adjust every opinion of theirs and we had everything in the final product.
