Front Flip, a mobile application developed by Kansas City mobile app developer Twentyseven Global, generated more than 25,000 user downloads in its first month after its launch in Kansas City. The application allows businesses and consumers to connect instantly in fun and exciting ways through QR codes, which generate virtual scratch-off cards, featuring prizes. Currently, more than 250 businesses including Old Chicago, Pride Cleaners, Power Play, Hooters, Le Peep, Danny’s Bar and Grill and 54th Street Bar and Grill are all participating.
Sean Beckner, co-founder & CEO of Front Flip, praised Twentyseven Global for its efficiency and scalability in the development of the application. “We wanted to move fast with development and Twentyseven Global enabled us to get to market quickly. Their ability to scale and move quickly was a definite advantage for us. We had partnered with a tech team outside of the metro and they were unable to give us tangible results. Steve Roatch and Twentyseven Global have the right mix of local and off-shore developers and project managers. Twentyseven Global was timely, cost-conscious, scalable and incredibly responsive. We owe them a lot for helping us get where we are today,” said Beckner.
Steve Roatch, CEO of Twentyseven Global, explained, “Front Flip had a broad range of technology needs including project management, technical architecture, native Android and iPhone development, PHP and Ruby Web development and testing. We were able to rapidly source the required development skills from our off-shore center and use our on-shore management to ensure delivery. We take financial accountability for results.”
Front Flip expects to have more than 50,000 downloads and 350 businesses using their corresponding loyalty management system by the end of 2011. The application is currently available for download on iPhone and Android in the Kansas City area and is now expanding into the Dallas market.
