Challenge

After struggling unsuccessfully for months to hire an in-house iOS developer for their app, they eventually found someone who then quit mid-way. This led to the project stalling badly and delaying the expected completion date by months. That’s when Indiez got hired to work on the existing codebase and ship the app within tight timelines.

We began the project with a thorough review of the code that their previous developer had written along with a detailed scope documentation. Fast paced software development projects can lead to havoc if all stakeholders are not on the same page.

After establishing crystal clear clarity, we paced ahead to begin development. The key challenge was to release an app with more than 100 polished screens in 3 months. The work was split between the 3 engineers based on their previous experience, complexity of features and logical grouping of screens.

On encountering unforeseen complexities during development, we onboarded another engineer during the project to ensure timely delivery - at no added costs for the Flyrobe team!

As with all our projects, we invited the Flyrobe team to our Slack channel for seamless communication, which ensured great collaboration with their backend team.

By the time we completed the project, Flyrobe found an iOS engineer to join their core team. We made sure he was onboarded onto the project for smooth transitioning.
 
Since the first release, we continue to provide support to Flyrobe as and when needed, and act as an extended team that is always available for them!
