ABOUT Miiskin

Miiskin is on a mission to end skin cancer mortality. They do this through offering a self-service skin cancer monitoring app.

The app helps people discover changes on their skin that could be early warnings of skin cancer. The user marks mole locations on their body, adds photos, and gets reminders to regularly add and compare photos.

With more than 450,000 downloads, a number that is rapidly increasing, Miiskin is a huge success. The app has received a range of awards within health tech and also the European Commission’s Seal of Excellency.

Convincing start on cooperation

After initially launching the app for Android themselves, Miiskin chose Sprinting Software to develop the iOS app.

Miiskin’s CEO Jon Friis explains, “The project was straightforward. We wanted to replicate the Android functionalities in the new iOS app, and wanted an external partner that could build the app quickly and reliably.

“The job Sprinting Software did was impressive. They developed this quite complex app with high quality and within the promised time, which was in only 8 weeks.

This was a very good accomplishment. We were so impressed that we decided to move all our app development activities to Sprinting Software.”

Important culture fit

Important culture fit

Jon Friis says, “Hiring and managing a great development team can be a time-consuming and frustrating process for managers in companies that do not have software development as their core business.

To outsource parts of your development is also not easy. It is crucial that the external development team is a good culture fit, and that they understand and care for your business.

I have previously worked with external development teams, and while they did what they were asked to do, they would never challenge the things we told them to develop. They were not fully capable of understanding what we wanted to accomplish.

When outsourcing development, you need a partner that wants to do more for you and is engaged. This is what we get with Sprinting Software.

“With Sprinting Software’s developers, we not only get very experienced developers, we also get people with good communication skills that challenge us. On top of this, Sprinting Software cares for the end result and our company. ”

Responsible partner

Responsible partner

After choosing Sprinting Software as their partner for app development, Miiskin reduced the size of their own development team. Now, Miiskin’s own resources mainly develop the backend part of the solution.

Jon Friis explains, “The overall development process is led by our CTO, and Sprinting Software’s developers work as an integrated part of our development team.

“Outsourcing parts of the development for such a mission critical solution requires a lot of faith in your external partner. Sprinting Software never disappoints us. Whenever we contact Sprinting Software, we get the attention we need. They are always on top of everything and respond quickly to issues.”

Jon Friis, CEO

Before Sprinting Software, issues with the team always ended up on my desk. Either we were using too much money or were not meeting the goals we set. This is not the case anymore. I have no concerns whatsoever regarding development, which is a big relief.”

Agile development

Agile development

Jon Friis continues, “Being an entrepreneurial company, we need to continuously learn from the market and adapt instantly. We therefore base our development on agile methods. As Sprinting Software already works according to agile methods, it has been very easy to integrate Sprinting Software in our team.

What we also like about agile development is the sprint approach. When implemented correctly, it does not require much from the management to look after the process. The team get things done and demonstrates working software at the end of each sprint.

Having an “invisible” development team that delivers is amazing for us. When I do not hear anything from the team it is because everything is going as expected. We can now focus more on customers, marketing, and growing the business.”

Huge productivity increase

Huge productivity increase

To ensure cost-effectiveness and high-quality output, Sprinting Software hires developers in its own nearshore offices in Serbia. The reason is not only that salaries are more competitive, but also that it is possible to attract very skilled and talented developers.

Jon concludes, “Working with Sprinting Software is the best solution we have ever had. They have a strong focus on cost-effectiveness, process optimisation and quality of the delivery.

“The cost of working with Sprinting Software is 50% lower compared to working with our own developers.

When hiring our own developers, it is difficult to get the same level of experience and seniority. With Sprinting Software’s developers, we experience a doubling of productivity per developer.

This way, we got a 4 times improvement on our development spend compared to working with our own development team.”
