Our challenge

Before partnering with Red Pepper Software, Skipio was looking to expand its outreach and produce a mobile app for customers to use. The lack of a mobile app for customers to use was seen as the biggest pain point at Skipio.

The Red Pepper solution

For Skipio, financially, it was not a priority to hire an in-house team of developers, so they opted for staff augmentation and approached Red Pepper Software for a solution.

In discussing the project and desired results, we agreed to source six individual developers to work full-time on Skipio’s project for as long as needed. The specific programming languages they have been working with include React, Ruby on Rails, Swift, Kotlin, as well as one individual working on Quality Assurance (QA.)

The results

Before partnering with Red Pepper Software, the lack of a mobile app was the biggest pain spot Skipio had. This app, which deals with messaging automation and mass-messaging for businesses, now looks to be the company’s flagship product. Of our six full-time employees working on Skipio’s team, one developer has worked specifically as a backend developer for a web app that was already in production at Skipio. The other five have worked diligently on the android and iOS mobile apps. The app is currently in beta testing and has received only positive feedback from every direction.

As previously mentioned, because of the work done by our Staff, Skipio has turned its most major pain point into a strength and its flagship product. Skipio hopes to be thought of as the best messaging tool available to create and manage relationships that scale. With Skipio, customers will be able to build strong, personal, business relationships with every one of their own customers – whether that be 10 or 1000 people.

What they say: “Red Pepper stepped in on short notice and provided development resources that contributed significantly to several key product releases. We asked the Red Pepper senior technical team to do some critical architecture and exploratory discovery work and they delivered exactly what we needed. The management team was responsive, results driven and were a delight to work with. We will certainly consider their team to work on future projects.” – Doug Call, Skipio Head of Product and Development
