Team Composition

Along with a bunch of Full-stack developers and 3 mobile app developers, Netsmartz allocated a dedicated project manager.

The Problem Statement

App development, Design, and extensive experience with integrations and APIs. That was the primary expectation of the client for their development partner.

The client had scoped out the project for 8 months, in which they wanted to launch it. To that end, they wanted a partner dedicated to their project, with 24×7 support, regular collaboration, daily standups, and updates.

This process that they wanted to be follow also entailed continuous iterations coupled with an Agile Testing process to meet the deadline. Consistent availability, effective communication, and the ability to get the work done were passive addendums that were in place for the project.

Finally, Virtual Manager considered Netsmartz after extensive rounds of research and discussion. Netsmartz’s fluid engagement models and definitive methodology made them feel most comfortable among several other mobile app development firms.

The Challenge

A couple of years into its inception, Virtual Manager LLC sought to create a strategic edge in its service offerings through cutting-edge applications. One that would be scalable was unique, had great functionality, and redefined its competitive proposition in the real estate industry.

The goal was to get a defined advantage over the competition from an app that could ingress into the regular utility in the consumer sphere – providing easy access anywhere, any time.

On that note, the firm’s CTO focused on organizations that could deliver an app while having a transparent delivery methodology. (Since they did not want to redo the process and invest time, effort, and money again and again) After extensive research and discussions with several other mobile app development firms, Virtual Manager LLC’s Team went with Netsmartz’s services and software team.

The Solution

With a hands-on approach, Netsmartz decided to segment the app development into different steps –

  • As a first step, we asked the CTO and his Team a series of questions to ensure that we clearly understood our overall visions and the goals they were looking to achieve. The concept was documented and mapped in detail by our project manager.
    • We then provided a complete project scope outlining the process, the app’s functionality, the project’s timeframe, and pricing.
  • After defining the requirements, our project manager crafted a team to deliver the app – focusing on communication, app iterations, and feature additions in regular sprints.
  • Our Team responded to the feedback and delivered the app.
    • At the outset, we continued to offer suggestions to make the application better regarding its design, features, updating APIs, and more.

Our Process

Here’s the process that Netsmartz followed –

Mapping & Vetting Resources

After the scope of development was finalized, Netsmartz allocate a Project manager to act as a SPOC, helm the engagement, and allocated developers to take care of the development requirements for the app.


Netsmartz’s Team, headed by the project manager operated in an Agile manner – with consistent standups arranged for necessary changes and feature additions. As usual, the work happened in collaborative development sprints on top of the feedback, requirements, and architecture that was crafted.


As the project grew, more developers were added to take care of feature development, manage QC, and roll out software features regularly. Considering the steep deadline, the team worked in conjunction to ship features first and optimize them later. The flexible scaling also allowed Netsmartz to shorten the time to market – significantly adding a business advantage for the client’s operations.

The Result

The app Netsmartz created for Virtual Manager LLC successfully positioned the company ahead in the market.

Within eight months of development, Netsmartz rolled out the project for final launch helping Virtual Manager LLC experience tremendous growth. The app launch further contributed to their success as being recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in the United States by Inc. 5000 in 2014.
