Hudson Valley Apps have been true partners. They took the time to understand our business so they could come up with creative solutions to deliver a great product both on time and on a tight budget.

Burbio’s mission is to provide easy access to community events.  Burbio aggregates calendars for each community and allows users to customize their experience by following and syncing to the community organizations and events within that interest them.

After developing their web site and back end, Burbio received a seed investment from the Hudson Valley Startup Fund. They needed mobile apps for their customers, but it didn’t make sense to hire a full time mobile team to build a relatively basic app.

THE CHALLENGE:

As with many startups, Burbio faced the challenge of developing a high quality mobile app but still keeping within a tight budget.  Our goal at Hudson Valley Apps is to work within any budget, so this was a perfect fit for us.

 

OUR ROLE: 

Mobile product management expertise

 

In order to get the scope within Burbio’s budget, our first step was to reduce the scope of the project down to the core user experience. We worked with CEO Julie Roche to understand Burbio’s highest priority features. We provided estimates at a feature level so that she could make business-level decisions about what would be able to fit into the app given her budget. We removed any features that might be risky and drive up the cost. We also minimized custom design and leveraged the native user interface on each platform.

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT:

Once the scope was set, we began development.  We were able to develop the app on time, within Burbio’s budget, and with high quality.

We continue to maintain Burbio’s Android and iOS apps.
