Pretta iOS application
We created the Pretta mobile application for internal use at CrustLab. We use it to improve the IT project management process that we implement for our clients from around the world.
Pretta principal challenges
The need to create a Pretta application has always existed in our work and is derived from the difficulties posed by estimating an IT project. We wanted to enrich the “dry” numerical estimates to make them more accurate and realistic to implement. We were looking for effective ways to reduce the time needed for estimation, speed up project work, and have the ability to view progress on an ongoing basis.
How does it work?
The inspirations for the creation of this project management application were the CTM and PERT mathematical methods, which scientists working on the Manhattan Project used to improve their work. We came to the conclusion that methods which were helpful in managing a project involving nearly 1,000 people oould also add value to our work.
We have written an algorithm that is based on the aforementioned mathematical methods. Thanks to this, the application is able to select critical points of the project then, in graphic form, present their path with particular emphasis on those that cannot be moved in time and those that can be freely managed. The effects are visible in three variants: optimistic, neutral, or assuming the longest project implementation time. Each of these variants contains an indicator of the probability of the work going according to the assumed plan, and the application also verifies how confident the user is by them entering individual values.
The last step was to design the UX and UI to make the application not only functional, but also readable and intuitive.
– reduction in time needed to create an estimation by 20%
– 95% accuracy of estimation
We have created an authorial solution that helps us manage an unlimited number of projects that we implement for our clients. We have significantly reduced the time needed to prepare the estimation by as much as 20% and improved the accuracy of calculations.
Thanks to that, we improve the work on each project and determine the optimal time to implement them by identifying the most time-consuming points of the project, indicating dependencies and setting priorities for performing tasks.
The whole process is complemented by the thoughtful UX and UI applications that are readable and easy to use even for lay people.

CrustLab’s implementation of our solutions has almost doubled our revenues. All aspects of cooperation were very good. I felt that we were treated as very important clients because we received a very high standard of service. The team delivered the results at the time and budget.
We finished an MVP in 3 weeks. It was very valuable that CrustLab was able to evaluate the feasibility of our solution and estimated the effort and cost that was required to request the funding. CrustLab can be a business partner in addition to an excellent software development agency.
This team is hungry, sharp, “on it” and very customer-focused. I had no idea that I could find such great help from the other side of the world – especially a firm that could understand our product requirements even though I’m not a tech product manager.
CrustLab successfully delivered a product that was able to maintain its performance despite some sudden surges in the site’s traffic. Thanks to their experience and ability to predict problems, we found solutions and built the project on time.
I was looking for a design team that had experience in sports betting. CrustLab helped me complete a full UX design project for my product. It was a very collaborative process, which is what I wanted. When I’m ready to do my next project, they’re going to be my first phone call.
The best part of working with CrustLabs was their attention to detail in every development process step. They were great about taking the initiative to suggest new enhancements and features that our product owners hadn’t thought of and sharing with us the best practices.
We hired CrustLab to introduce several modifications to improve one of the Pocco Finance apps and integrate it with the new version of the SDK. The project was completed on time and in line with the planned budget. I strongly recommend CrustLab as a software partner.
We take advantage of CrustLab’s experience in the field of payments, new functionalities, and user-friendly design. The development process itself ran smoothly and according to plan. It was important for us to complete the project on time, so I cannot imagine a better partner for this project.
We are really satisfied with the cooperation with CrustLab. Very good technical skillset, good communication, and work done on time! After creating a customizable widget, we entrusted them with redefine of another application, and the results are splendid.
Our cooperation with CrustLab concerned body leasing. They offered us highly skilled and experienced Android developers. I am fully satisfied with the ease of contact, the speed of completing the formalities, but most of all of the man they recommended to us.
