Potado was founded in 2018 by Giulio Gottini after a trip to the United States where he was flown to the offices of Google in NYC after winning an app development competition for his university. It was there where he noticed that there was a huge need for app developers and took on his first client then and today Potado has worked with clients from all around the world by developing award-winning software that scales.
Gottini then decided that he would base Potado in Singapore. Once the Covid-19 pandemic hit and local business was hit Gottini and his team of Singapore software developers built an app for bars in the city to receive gift vouchers and deliver drinks. The app is no longer active but the project was well received and the team continues to help companies in Singapore and beyond build and grow their digital products.
What kinds of software can you develop?
Despite having one of the most iconic Apple Stores in the world, Singaporeans love Android with 75% of the population choosing Android over iOS devices. iOS owns the remaining 25%, and while the market share is a lot less, 25% of Singapore is still a lot of people so when developing an app it is important to launch it for both devices if you want to reach all users. Our expert mobile app developers will help you launch a polished app on the Google Play Store, Huawei App Gallery and Apple App Store.
The web has advanced over the years and we are now able to create web experiences that emulate the same experience that a mobile app would. Just now it is easier to access and doesn’t need to be downloaded. We call these Progressive web apps and they have helped companies increase engagement rates with users, especially users who want to access a service but don’t want to install an additional app on their phones.
As technology evolves so does our expertise. We explore the latest tech as soon as the first news article hits by building prototypes to test the capabilities. Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and the Internet of Things are buzzwords here at Potado.
How does software development work?
Gino Gottini, Founder of Potado, explains that: “a software development team is like a Broadway play. You have the actors on stage, but then there’s also a lot happening backstage.” Our software development team includes people from many different roles. We have account managers who act as a go-between for clients, product managers who oversee the strategy, designers who create visual content, and developers to optimize the product. Our digital marketers get the word out to potential customers.
When you work with Potado, we ensure that the project team is well equipped for your app idea and ready to make it a reality. Our professionals are research-driven and strategy-oriented, so they will be able to find the best approach for your project.
What is the process like to develop software?
Potado is a one-stop shop for any business in need of app development, strategy, or a pitch deck to promote their idea. We are highly experienced in the Singapore software development industry and will work with you to identify what will best fit your needs. We start by hearing your idea and then build a bespoke client pitch deck. We put your product in the palm of your customer’s hands. They’ll be able to interact with it like never before on any device. Our team then makes it interactive, so that they can work their way through the features in a clear, fun way.
We want to make sure you love your app, which is why we work with you every step of the way. Our development process consists of two phases: Pre-development and Design & Development. We value collaboration, which means that during our design phase, we have a place for you to provide feedback. This helps us make sure your app is exactly what you’ve always envisioned.
Our process has been tried and proven and we know the importance of planning and communicating to our clients in a clear and easy to understand way. Here is a brief rundown of our process:
- Discovery and Planning
- UI/UX Design
