Is it a bad idea to outsource software development? Let’s look at some examples of terrible IT outsourcing projects and think if there was a way to avoid failure.

Radio Pogoda is a Polish radio station that plays old hits from the 20s to 60s. We faced the task of developing a mobile app for the radio and managed to do it in a couple of days. In the app, you can not only listen to music but also set an alarm clock with the streaming or enter a contest.
- IT consulting
- System architecture
- UX design
- Cross-platform mobile app development
To be super specific, the client needed 3 mobile apps for his radio stations. What is more, each one for Android and iOS. They needed a modern app, adjusted to contemporary users’ requirements. Above all, the client cared about attracting new listeners and supporting their engagement. As a result, apps needed to bring the radio closer to their listeners.
The goal of this project was to create a modern mobile app for Radio Pogoda and two other Agora’s radio stations. Above all, the challenge was to develop them super fast.
Initially, we developed a modernized version of the Radio Złote Przeboje app. It already was in app stores but needed many changes. We decided to go with cross-platform development to speed up the process. We wrote the code with modules. As a consequence, we developed the next app, a Radio Pogoda app, in a couple of days. It was a clone of Radio Złote Przeboje app, it only needed adjusting. Therefore, we were able to create apps for Android and iOS in a few days.
Similarly, as the RZP app, we equipped the Radio Pogoda app with such functionalities like an alarm clock, contest mechanism, push notifications. What is more, it is connected to social media to boost its marketing power.
Benefits for the client
- We created a code that was easy to clone. Therefore, the client invested in developing the first app and a Radio Pogoda app was only a small investment. To sum up, in just a couple of days, the client received 3 finished apps, each for Android and iOS.
- Radio Pogoda app is modern and easy-to-use, so it attracts new users and boosts the brand.
- The app is a great marketing tool. Most importantly, thanks to push notifications, connecting to social media, and adding analytical and advertisement tools. Therefore, Agora can know listeners better, understand their behaviours and make more money thanks to ads.
What client says?
We appreciated a friendly atmosphere throughout the whole process, the ability to contact developers directly and the team’s flexibility.
