They are well on their way with many global brands on their client list; Scandinavian Airline System, Boston Consulting Group, and Grant Thornton to mention a few.
Vilmate was approached by &frankly, a Swedish technology startup to assist them in developing the iOS and Android versions of their web-based Employee Engagement Software.
The client was looking for a reliable mobile development partner to help them implement and further expand over the long haul the mobile version of their application.
To implement the project, we put together a team of 1 iOS developer and 1 Android developer. Later on, this team was augmented to include 1 QA engineer.
Throughout the project, which is still ongoing currently, our team has been managed directly by the client’s CTO.
The Vilmate developers started by re-engineering the existing functionality. Within one year’s time, we had developed the tablet version of the app. We have also made the following modifications and improvements to the functionality of the Android and iOS versions of the software:
Currently, the Vilmate team is working on a new version of the software with an updated UI/UX.
Vilmate's involvement in the project has allowed resolving several issues that could have had a negative impact on the service and its customer experience. As well as improving the system’s performance, we have added several new features increasing the value of the service for both &frankly and its end-customers.
Vilmate has been able to quickly put together a very competent team for our mobile development that has produced a robust and well-designed mobile product, instrumental for the success of our company.
In addition to developing a stable application, Vilmate has been very flexible when we’ve needed additional bandwidth and been able to with quick notice bring onboard additional resources for troubleshooting, testing and meeting tight deadlines.
We will continue working with Vilmate for our mobile development and can recommend them to others in our situation.
