STX NEXT DELIVERED
Stakeholders on the Deuce team have been engaged in the tennis community for many years. They have experience cooperating with tennis clubs, coaches and competitors. They are tennis enthusiasts and desire to connect players, clubs, and venues. To achieve these goals, they decided to build an application which brings tennis players, fans and clubs together.
The beginning of the project presented two exciting challenges to tackle. The first was to create a solution that would be available to the widest possible range of users, so it was crucial to implement support for a broad range of devices. The second challenge was to deliver the core functionality before the great tennis festival, Wimbledon.
Following Deuce's guidelines, we built a robust app that connects deuce partners and tennis players. Using new technologies, we implemented advanced functionalities for booking and managing tennis sessions and courts.
Work on Deuce Tennis follows a well-organized development process, allowing us to deliver high quality increments of the app. We prioritized automated test coverage to ensure a flawlessly performing product.
It's been an absolute pleasure working with the engineers at STX: from day one they've shown a huge amount of professionalism and drive to deliver great results quickly. It's been easy to discuss different approaches, whether it be technical solutions, better ways to work together, or product decisions from a user perspective. This has ensured we've achieved the best outcomes.
Deuce is a startup with a desire to bring together the tennis community. Their goal is quite ambitious, but after 4 months of intensive development, Deuce is available for both mobile and web, has real live tennis sessions ongoing and the support of famous tennis star Andy Murray. Currently, the most important challenge is to maintain the rapid growth of the application as the user base expands.
