What did Building Skills Partnership want to talk about?

We would like to create an app for our organization and would like to discuss with an expert the best ways to go about this.

Additional Context

The goal of creating the app is to connect with our students in a more effective way to provide information on our programs/classes, and eventually offer some content via the app so students can study on their phones. We have surveyed staff and gathered a list of features we would like the app to have. We have also identified a few potential app developers. We want advice from an expert on the best way to evaluate and compare app developers to determine the best option for our organization.

What did they have to say?

This was a very productive and informative call! Tom had reviewed the material we sent ahead of time and prepared thoughtful questions that guided our discussion and helped me gather the information I needed to continue our research on mobile app developers. He listened carefully to my questions and provided feedback in a friendly and clear manner. After this call, I feel much better prepared to continue the research and evaluation process to find a mobile app solution that meets the needs of our organization. Overall, this call was exactly what we needed and I am grateful for the support Tom offered. I look forward to collaborating with him in the future!

Ahead of the call, I received detailed research material compiled by BSP, which was indispensable in allowing me to prepare for the call, understanding the scope of the problem much better than I'd be able to from just a description. When the call itself started, Grazia provided an explanation of the target demographic and the exact needs that lead BSP to start evaluating a mobile app solution, which was extremely helpful. She answered any questions I had about the background, requirements, and current state of affairs in a very clear and friendly manner, and listened to what feedback I had to offer. All in all, it felt like a very effective call, and I'd be happy to talk to or work with BSP again any time.
