About this project

Our customers' and consultants' experiences helped us conceive and design Xprtly! to create a better consulting experience.

The Xprtly! app is a mobile-first solution that uses data-driven analytics to expedite and improve interactions between consultants and those they help. Our team is very excited to launch this crowdfunding effort as it enables us to complete development that will deliver a more robust user experience.  

We are serial entrepreneurs, enterprise software consultants, business intelligence consultants, business users (controllers, plant managers, operations managers), developers, designers, and our mascot Windsor. Many of us have over 20 years of experience working with enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and supply chain planning (SCP) enterprise software products.

You see, after more than 15 years of watching people struggle with enterprise software, we found a way to make the situation better — whether you’re in accounting or operations or in human resources. Why must you wait for hours or days to get an expert’s answer to a software problem? Or why spend hours searching the Internet for an answer when you have no assurance that it will be the right one? This is the current situation for many organizations and their employees.

We all want answers fast that work, yet don’t get them.

Also, we wanted to help our consultants boost their productivity and deliver improved performance support without all of the frustration that our colleagues across the enterprise software industry face daily.

Consultants: How many times have you been on the receiving end of a manager’s tirade because a software user claimed you didn’t respond (when you know that you did)? Or when was the last time a client’s accounting department requested an explanation for your time? This is why we built Xprtly!: To relieve the frustration, the anxiety, and the tension and improve accountability, reporting and the consulting experience when business is moving lightning fast and mentors and IT staff are lean and scarce.

What We Need & What You Get

The feedback we've received is that Xprtly! is amazing. Being able to connect immediately with an expert who has an answer or a solution is a serious game changer for more than software users. Other experts — coaches, small business and marketing consultants — are also included in the expertise areas in Xprtly!. The success of this crowdfunding campaign will enable us to create a more engaging user interface and complete a web app that is accessible from a desktop. Our users asked for this, and we plan to deliver.

The Impact

When we're finished, Xprtly! will be a robust "go anywhere and do business fast" application that revolutionizes your consulting experience. Enterprise software customers and consultants use Xprtly! to ask questions and get answers fast from their desks, on the road — anywhere, anytime.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge is integration. It takes a lot of development to get that right. We built the alpha version of Xprtly! in 90 days. Our developers and designers tell us that to create a more beautiful and engaging UI, along with final key web applications, will take roughly 90 to 120 days. We are adding capability to an existing architecture. With that in mind, our biggest risk is also integration. During our initial development we had integration challenges with the mobile apps and the web based administrative portal. We solved these issues by performing numerous white box tests and conducting field tests with alpha/beta users. As a result, our Xprtly! product as soft launched in the app stores (Apple, Google, Windows) is technically solid!
