Finding Inspiration in Work with Startups

Sigma Software created a prototype and delivered a clean and fresh design for a web application owned by a UK-based startup, Needl Analytics. The solution delivers an exciting new “Virtual Analyst” tool for SMEs using Google Analytics.

Needl is a revolutionary web service that handles analytics in a new way. From a huge amount of data that Google Analytics provide, Needl only focuses on the information that is really important for a specific business, and provides with predictions on how this data can impact your business goals. Sigma Software team was engaged in conducting pre-study and creating product prototype.

“Startups are special type of business that is often sensitive to time, budget, and schedule. Having a wide experience of working with startups as an IT partner, we know exactly the specifics of their work and what is really important for them: a great flexibility and support,” says Vlad Khodzinskiy, Head of Department of Mobile and Web Solutions. “We started cooperation with Needl Analytics with conducting a pre-study. After clarifying all the requirements of the Customer, we came up with six different proposals and estimates. Needl has used this knowledge and successfully delivered beta version in seven months.”

Our team was also engaged in creation of the application prototype. It was designed in close cooperation with Sigma Software experts, who have relevant experience in the domain and applied skills working with Google Analytics. The clickable prototype allowed Customer to visualize idea and create more accurate estimates for product development that increased chances for finding investments. The clean and stylish design created by Sigma Software also fits to be used for Customer’s branded materials.

“Working with Sigma Software team was not only inspirational, but also a real pleasure. Their intuitive understanding of our brief and of our users` needs meant that we saved time and money in getting to our final product,” says Andrew Dempsey Co-Founder of Needl Analytics Ltd. “It is priceless to find people speaking the same language, who understand your idea on the spot, offer improvements, and move the project forward. Being a startup, Needl doesn’t have a large in-house team, so we were glad to find all specialists we need in Sigma Software, high-skilled experienced graphic designers and analysts. We loved the look of the prototype, visual work is really great. It’s amazing to see how it turns to a mature working system. Sigma Software is number one on our list of tech teams we want to work with in the future.”

Our cooperation with Needl Analytics continues. Recently our Customer has released a beta version of the solution and came back to us for UI review and feedback. We would be very glad to extend our joint work on this great product in the future.
