Messapps Describes Their Experience Using MoonClerk To Accept Recurring Payments From Day 1 Of Their Business
Posted by Dodd Caldwell · Apr 28, 2016
Jeffrey Gomez, of NYC-based app development firm, Messapps, talks with us about using MoonClerk to accept recurring payments from his customers from Day 1 of his business’ start.
Can you tell us a little about Messapps?
Messapps is an NYC-based app development firm. We are a team of creative designers, tech savvy developers and awesome project managers (like me!). Our secret sauce is that we’re an eclectic bunch and we love what we do. From building a strong foundation for app functionality, to designing an app that best represents its function, to continually improving the performance of each app, we take pride in each stage of developing not just someone’s idea, but someone’s dream.
What are your day-to-day responsibilities?
I am the Marketing and Project Manager at Messapps. On the marketing side, I am responsible for the branding direction of Messapps along with our social media, content, and production of our Appreneur Academy.
On the Project Management side, responsibilities include the idea-to-launch execution of projects. There are three key stages in executing the development of an app: wireframes, design, and development. When onboarding clients, we must create tasks for each team at each stage. At every stage, my responsibilities include managing the workflow, communicating with both client and internal teams on new iterations, and user testing of the app.
How did Messapps get its start?
Originally we were an educational software company then we transformed into an app development company.
How did you get started with Messapps?
Having worked with an app development firm in Silicon Valley, I saw the East Coast app and tech industry as small. Over the past couple of years, however, New York City in general has become a booming industry of tech professionals and app leaders. Messapps believes in what New York City and every inspiring tech-appreneur has to offer. Coupled with their amazing design and development team, and their drive to build the future of tech and apps, Messapps made it an easy choice for me to join their team.
What have been some key factors in your business’s growth?
As huge as the tech scene is, not everyone who has an amazing idea is an actual developer. Even those who already have apps, the app industry is ever-changing, requiring new iterations of apps and games. That’s where we come in.
What do you use MoonClerk for?
Building apps (and dreams!) requires post-launch maintenance. MoonClerk helps us accept recurring monthly payments from our clients.
What was your experience when getting started with MoonClerk?
We had never used another payment system before. We started with MoonClerk and will continue to do so! MoonClerk was very easy to implement. We got it up and running quickly and have had no issues since Day 1.
What do you like about MoonClerk?
Our favorite thing about MoonClerk is that it’s such a simple tool to use.
How has MoonClerk improved or helped your business?
We definitely have more cash in the bank now 🙂
Any advice for others who are in similar industries?
Always try to find a recurring source of revenue.
