Prototyping / Testing
Gustaf is an award-winning web application that enables you to buy, download, save and use digital sheet music. It’s one of those great apps that makes you think: “why didn’t I come up with this myself?”. The company behind Gustaf is the Belgian tech startup NeoScores, which is driven by pure passion for music. As passion also drives us at Bewire, we soon struck the right chord.
It all started when Neoscores’ founders asked project manager Peter Leclerq to write functional specifications for their webshop. Peter: “We only had a few months to work out a planning, set up procedures and launch the project. Bewire helped us define the architecture, decide which available components could be re-used, and so on. All of this combined with a very agile way of working, backed by Jira software.”
Peter: “In the second phase, Bewire helped us tackle functional aspects such as the catalogue’s search functions, showing search results, metadata … In the last stage, we focused on bug fixing and optimalizing the webshop. Overall, we went from scratch to the launch of Gustaf’s first online version in only 2,5 months. That result surely deserves an applause, as we worked in close harmony … like an orchestra.”
"Thanks to Bewire, we were up and running in 2,5 months. Our idea became reality sooner than we hoped for. This was music to our ears. "
