AT A GLANCE

The ask was for a modern chat app which only looked like a chat app, but supported advanced features which made it an indispensable tool for team management and tasks. Their motto: “More than just chit-chat.”

Challenges, not problems

A super-efficient and small team was needed because this was a startup, and specs kept evolving continuously as iterative development strategies were applied. The technology stack included distributed databases. The constant evolution of the mobile OS platform made the OS a moving target.

Solutions, not ideas

We chose a tech stack to cut down perhaps 40% of development, by propagating messages via a distributed database (CouchDB) across devices. We delivered in sprints and responded to rapid changes in priority. We also set up a cycle of stack upgrades to keep the app current with changes in the Android and iOS releases.

Now that’s value

Redefined how a lean startup driven app, or a seemingly innocuous use-case of chatting, can change the way people collaborate. And did it with a superb, reliable tech stack.
