The last few months at Carbon Six HQ have been pretty busy, as we’ve been putting the finishing touches to really important project for our clients Pulse Fitness. When Pulse decided to expand into the fast growing fitness market in China, we support them by localising PulseMove, their cloud based connected fitness platform of web- and mobile-apps.
The project had to launch at the ChinaFit exhibition in Beijing on June 26, 2017, be fast to use and also be localised for Simplified Chinese - all within our existing budget for ongoing WebApp and mobile development.
In just 8 weeks from project inception, our team, in collaboration with Pulse and their distributors in China, delivered highly performant, localised versions of PulseMove for use in China - with apps available for Download from iTunes in China in time for the ChinaFit show, within our original Agile Development Budget. We were then able to support Pulse shortly after with the fitout of their first gym in China.
