    Using Xamarin to make Employee Travel easier

    Overall Comment

    Great support from the vendor. They assigned us a technical support personnel and helped us in a lot of integration

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Spend time understanding Xamarin, including creating a quick POC, don't judge by just reading it

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Work closer to developers in the community for adoption

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    We will focus on devops in the very beginning

    Service & support - overall comment

    Very attentive to our questions. Technical support is wonderful and helping us solving a lot of problems.

    Product(s): Xamarin Studio

    A fantastic platform for building quality apps for any platform quickly.

    Overall Comment

    Workstation setup was straight forward. Learning curve is very short for experienced C# programmers. Coming over from another programming language is very fast. I especially appreciate having full control of the mobile app experience. I have not come across a functionality need that cannot be satisfied to meet the user expectations. Virtually endless capabilities abound through the thousands of .NET libraries available.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Make sure you have a good UI designer on the team. Mobility is all about the user experience and ease of use.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Quick learning curve.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    No, non-programmer app dev option.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Can't think of one, the company has done extremely well and executed as well as can be hoped. The proof is their recent acquisition by Microsoft. My only concern is that the general mobile dev market doesn't get put-off by that, assuming that MS will somehow break the success streak they have built up so far.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Start with the Xamarin Forms product first for faster cross-platform UI development. But it wasn't fully completed when we began our development project.

    Product capabilities - overall comment

    Successfully met all business functional requirements due to the speed and capability to exploit all mobile device capabilities.

    Service & support - overall comment

    Excellent Account Managers and technical support. Xamarin Evolve is a must for organizations that are already using the platform.

    Xamarin - Excellent Native Apps for C# Skillsets

    Overall Comment

    Xamarin overall was an excellent vendor partner. We did have some minor issues with integration of iOS with Windows machines (our iOS developers preferred their Macs anyway and just used Xamarin Studio instead of Microsoft Visual Studio). We were an early adopter of Xamarin Test Cloud so we experienced numerous teething pains, but Xamarin did work diligently to address the problem. As a result, Test Cloud is now enterprise ready.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Do not be discouraged by the high cost of JetPack Consulting, they will greatly improve your adoption speed and get your team working fast.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Native C# complication with significant code share between iOS and Android.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    None.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Engaged Xamarin JetPack consulting early in the process.

    Service & support - overall comment

    Our best vendor by far in the organization.

    Product(s): Xamarin Studio

    Implementation was easy due to in-house skills in MS development platform.

    Overall Comment

    Easy to implement.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    If you have .NET technology in-house, Xamarin is the way to go.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Ease of use and tons of learning opportunities.
