review summary

Pros included how the whole Sunflower team has been accessible and eager to help. One notable drawback was that communications were kept in long e-mail threads and could have been organized more clearly.

Background


Introduce your business and what you do there.

Accurate Agent is a real estate technologies company. I try to solve data input problems and data real estate information syndication and things like that. I hired Sunflower Lab to help me code and create the first app that does all that. I am the founder.

Opportunity/Challenge


What challenge were you trying to address with Sunflower Lab?

They helped me with the app. They did an iOS and Android app.

Solution


What was the scope of their involvement?

I can’t speak too much on coding but I can say that they were very good at helping me overcome that. I used Google Docs in rudimentary forms to put together what I wanted. They were great at helping me figure out designs and translating that into what that would look like for an app. They’re very self-sufficient. They did a lot on their own. They would show it to me and ask for feedback, so that was helpful.

How did you come to work with Sunflower Lab?

I think someone just brought to my attention that they were a local company who built apps at a cheaper price than some larger companies.

How much have you invested with Sunflower Lab?

[Confidential].

What is the status of this engagement?

We started three years ago at the beginning of the summer. Like May or June 2013. I have been working periodically back and forth with them. They have a great thing where I can give them what I want, and they’ll give it back and they won’t charge anymore. They’re very direct in how they charge you. They’re very clear in what they’re going to do and how much it’s going to cost up front. They don’t sneak in any hidden prices or anything like that. The app launched about a year or two ago. They’ve been great on helping me keep it updated. If I ever want to do trouble fixing, they handle re-uploading the files so I can get live on the app store and things like that.

Results & Feedback


Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

I’ve been getting a lot of good feedback. We launched the app at a real estate convention two years ago. I attended the following year. The customers were receptive. We’re up over 1,100 downloads now. They did four or five updates over that time.

How did Sunflower Lab perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated through email basically 100% of the time. The only things we had to use that you’re required to use when making an app were things like iTunes Connect. They were proficient in that. They knew how Google Play works. They knew how iTunes Connect works. They helped me get through that very easily. I don’t know what programs they used to code. I was working with a project manager to start me off. He was also somewhat of a developer. He is the local guy. I live in New Jersey and he lived in Hillsborough, NJ. We’re very close. We could meet in person. He would often relay me to the developer who was outsourced to India and I got to talk to him directly. They were very good at managing that. If I ever didn’t want to talk directly to the coder, the project manager would handle it all.

What did you find most impressive about Sunflower Lab?

They were very good with time. They were always on time. Whenever I could speak to them, they were eager to listen to me. They never told me they couldn’t talk, or that I had to wait, or they had to help someone else. They were responsive. That was a huge blessing.

Are there any areas Sunflower Lab could improve?

They work in email and it can get confusing when multiple email chains start with other people. If they had a bit more organization in how they communicate, that would be great. But I can realize that falls on me as well.
