The creators of uZoom envisioned an app that would allow users to travel and shop virtually from their mobile device. Users would connect via video with a broadcaster acting as their eyes and ears on the ground. uZoom needed a solution to streamline video quality for both users and broadcasters.
uZoom was looking for superior talent who could quickly turn a proof of concept into funding. They were targeting the Rio Olympics for launch and needed a quick solution.
Within 3 weeks of kickoff Poeta created a proof of concept that allowed uZoom to raise critically needed funds from investors. Poeta then created a fully functional app that could be used during the Olympics. uZoom’s launch was a success and Poeta continues to operate as their development arm today.
LinkIt, an educational SAAS provider which uses real-time data and analytics to help schools, needed to redesign its platform to enable large-scale usage. The original platform was built on old technology that needed to be rewritten because it couldn’t scale with the growth they were experiencing. This was a mission critical endeavor that required talent and speed
The CIO didn’t want to hire a team because of the cost and the time required to onboard. The only way to get this done quickly was to outsource. She chose Poeta for their talent, and ability to scale quickly.
Remarkably, within 3 months LinkIt’s dedicated Poeta team was created and running. Poeta rewrote, rebuilt and seamlessly integrated the platform to include:
Today LinkIt serves thousands of schools worldwide with nearly a million active students. Poeta continues to develop Linkit’s platform and has a team dedicated to their success.
Pirq wanted to solve the problem that coupon apps create - overloading businesses during peak hours and ultimately costing them more than they are worth.
Pirq’s goal was to create an app delivering real-time, hyper local deals to customers for both iPhone and Android that could entice business during off-peak hours and require no advanced purchase.
Part of Pirq’s great appeal is its design. Poeta made sure it was incredibly easy to use and would create a seamless experience for both businesses and consumers. No extra hardware and no learning curve required. Poeta implemented features like:
Today, 800,000 users are finding great deals from 8,000 small businesses on Pirq.
How much easier would it be to meet people if you knew you shared a common interest? That was the inspiration behind Anomo, often called the social app for introverts, where users share hobbies and preferences through avatars rather than real names and photos.
Anomo approached Poeta to create a safe and uplifting way for people to connect while leveraging strong analytics to optimize the app experience.
Poeta created addictively fun icebreaker games that tracked user data to match users with similar interests. Today Anomo has over 280,000 users.
