Enterprise mobility and within it BYOD

We are absolutely thrilled to work with a team of two Vodafone veterans who came together to build something in this space. The product prototype was built to gauge and garner investor + customer interest.

Outsourced Product Development

We have worked hard at building a team that specializes in product development. We are not UI/UX Consultants and neither are we a team of developers who just code. We manage the complete product life cycle including ideation, wireframing, feature prioritization, UI + UX design, technology stack selection, development and product marketing. It's not a unique model in any way, and has a well accepted term for it: Outsourced Product Development.

World is flat

Startups and early stage product companies are always cash strapped. At the same time, to create anything worthwhile it takes time, effort and resources. Given that our clients are mostly non-funded idea-stage companies, we found it far easier to work with clients based out of the Western Hemisphere. What is low cost for them in London or Seattle is a fairly comfortable budget for us here in Goa, India.

So neither do we have to always cut corners to fit the client's budgets, nor do they have to stretch their budgets to get a team that is passionate about what they are doing. Our favorite story is that of a client who spent more money in getting the logo desgined with a London based branding firm than getting the entire mobile app built with us.

Skype + Screen sharing + Google Docs + task trackers like Asana between them have made it very easy to work with remote teams. Some of our clients (Four to be exact) have flown down to India and spent a week working with us out of our office.

There is a certain joy in building websites and web applictions for the local market and we continue to selectively work with clients across Pune, Delhi, Mumbai and Goa in India.
