The challenge

Angie Durbin owns a property management company in San Diego. Her company ran into issues with disputes between landlords and tenants over deposits. She needed a solution where new tenants could log detailed and systematic images of the property condition when they move in, eradicating gray areas and the need for disputes. The idea for Deposit Defender was born.

She had previously gone to another agency to develop her app as they’d quoted her a fantastic price. However, after the initial design phase, they surprised her by adding $43,000 to the original quote. Clearly, that wasn’t going to happen.

“I passed everything I had from the other company over to Elko and they managed to turn it into something that was better than I thought it could be. Compoze Labs made the app much cleaner than the previous designs.”

The result

The end result? A delighted client, and an award-winning app. Angie Durbin and the Deposit defender team had some great things to say about Compoze Labs team.

“Compoze Labs were very hands on. We had regular update meetings where I would get progress reports, and lots of detail on my app. I’d definitely recommend Compoze Labs, and would use them again.”

The Deposit Defender app didn’t just delight our customer, it delighted the judges of the Best New Mobile App awards too, winning first prize in 2020.

“Because of the increased efficiency of our in-house development platform Compoze, we were able to pass cost savings over to Deposit Defender. This meant a 74% saving on what the previous agency was going to charge.”

– Paul Hilsen, Compoze Labs Managing Partner –
