Q1.

Could you tell us more about the project: what were your needs and the challenges you faced before meeting Strapi?

Our team has been utilizing Strapi for customer projects for over two years now, with a notable case study being Mobile Measures. Mobile Measures is a Mobile Application on the Apple & Android store that provides physical and occupational therapists access to high-quality patient assessment tools that are scientifically proven to measure critical aspects of patient health.

In order to build the Mobile Measures application, we needed a robust administrative portal that could handle dynamic content types, and be launched quickly to meet the growing demand of the project.

After testing Strapi through internal projects, we were confident in the speed to market that Strapi offered and were able to quickly and confidently recommend the tool to our customer, Ben Kenuk.

Q2.

Why did you choose Strapi?

Most of our customers come to us looking for our specialization in Mobile Applications and App Store Consulting, with this said, it makes a great amount of business sense to specialize our team in exactly that - mobile applications.

Normally, our team would have to staff additional specialists for back-end technologies; however, with tools such as Strapi.js, we can rely on the Strapi team and the community to handle the administrative side while we focus on our speciality - Mobile Apps.

Q3.

Are you happy with your choice?

Absolutely!

Our customers were able to easily understand and administrate their application data from within the Strapi portal with minimal training and effort required on our part. It's essentially a dream come true!

Q4.

What would you advise to someone who has never tried Strapi?

I'll leave this answer to one of our lead experts from Spain, Fernando Del Olmo.

From Fernando,

"There are multiple blogs and resources explaining Strapi.js and deployment to Heroku with mLab (now MongoDB Atlas).

Although the setup with Strapi is easy, it's important to remember for developers to create a well thought-out structure for their database and data, so that when your customers want to add new types of data it can be easily accomplished.

Strapi itself is extremely easy to use, so we (as developers) can focus on the data structure and not on re-inventing the wheel."

Light Purple Triangle

We saw many benefits in terms of time and resources costs and satisfaction in our teams. The client can add more data whenever they decide and they are able to see the updates on the app without having to wait for a new version of their app.
