Introduce your business and what you do there.
I’m a team manager for an influencer booking application. Our app connects influencers to businesses and brands so that companies can book them more easily.
What challenge were you trying to address with NineTwoThree Studio?
We needed to engage a development company to help us develop an iOS app and launch it on the app store.
What was the scope of their involvement?
When we started working with NineTwoThree, we had a lot of ideas for the application. First, we spoke to the team about our concept and provided screenshots of how we wanted the app to look. They helped us hone in on our ideas to identify the most important features they’d need to create a viable product.
Then, they carried out comprehensive market research to identify potential competitors and see which features could set us apart. The insights determined that our ideas were sufficient to be able to create a new, unique application.
They’ve essentially taken our design ideas and developed them into a functional iOS application. For the most part, they’ve built the app from scratch, although the team has used some plug-ins to help with coding and APIs. We plan to collaborate on developing an Android version in the future.
What is the team composition?
We’ve worked with Andrew (CEO), Stephanie (Product Lead), and two developers.
How did you come to work with NineTwoThree Studio?
We found NineTwoThree online.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve invested roughly $250,000 in the partnership with NineTwoThree.
What is the status of this engagement?
We began working with NineTwoThree in February 2022, and the partnership is ongoing.
What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
We haven’t launched the application yet, but NineTwoThree has been able to bring our ideas to life beautifully. They’ve taken our broad vision and narrowed it down to give us a solid, user-friendly product. Since we’re still in the development stage, we’ve had a few bugs, but they’ve caught them immediately and resolved issues within 24 hours.
How did NineTwoThree Studio perform from a project management standpoint?
NineTwoThree has excelled from a project management standpoint. Although each team member has a different position with a different goal, the team works well together to create the app. They know how to do their jobs.
We’ve met in person, but now we meet weekly via Zoom to keep track of the process and go over new developments. If we have questions in between meetings, we can give them a call.
What did you find most impressive about them?
NineTwoThree’s biggest strength is their team’s investment in our product. They’ve done a lot of legwork for us to make the product as successful as possible.
Rather than working on as many projects as possible to make the most money, they’re very selective about their partnerships. As a result, we feel they’re excited about building our product and care about our success.
Are there any areas they could improve?
I have nothing NineTwoThree could improve on.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
I advise maintaining an open line of communication with NineTwoThree. If you communicate with them, they’ll deliver a final product that meets your needs and makes you happy.
