The pocket mentor fills the mental strength gap and support missing from our education

The Pocket Mentor

Fortem Digital were approached by The Pocket Mentor after the company they had been working with hadn’t been able to deliver what they were looking for in developing a fully operational lifestyle mental health wellness app. They came to us via recommendation.

Design and app development

Due to the development work involved in creating this app, we worked with the client over a period of 6 months.  We had various meetings with the client to understand their business and their target market, and precisely what they wanted the app to include and how it was to function. The app is designed to provide users with a mental health wellbeing app, and provides the ability to record daily feelings, and also self-help videos, which can be filtered by mood.

The starting point was designing the visual of the app, in a design and style that would appeal to users, those who are looking for an interactive mental health and wellbeing app. Once the overall design was agreed, the experienced development team went on to develop the app ensuring full functionality.

Testing the app

The initial version of the app was trialled and tested by a user group, so developments were made and tweaked taking into account the user’s journey on the app, the overall experience, and feedback. The final version of the app was then test prior to launch.

Launch

We’re delighted to have launched the app on both the App Store and Google Play Store.

"Fortem Digital rescued us from a challenging situation with previous developers, taking us from despair to hopeful. From here, Ricky and Andy went above and beyond to help us scope the project to build a minimal viable product.

When we met funding challenges during the first lockdown, they helped us steer the project to receive grant funding, so we were able to continue. Throughout the design and development process, Ricky, Andy and their team have communicated clearly and quickly, using their expertise they've responded honestly and positively challenged us to help build a robust platform.

Their commitment in designing and developing our Pocket Mentor web platform and native iOS and Android apps, has enabled us to build a thriving business with a really exciting future. Ricky and Andy feel very much part of our Pocket Mentor team, and their support has exceeded expectations."

Andy and Fortem Digital came to the rescue when we had to stop our website development with a big agency who didn’t deliver.

They turned the website very quickly allowing us to stay in the same timeframe we set up for this project. Andy’s design skills helped immensely to visualise the website before developing, so when we agreed the design, the development was done quickly and without problems. The support was great and the team was always flexible and proactive. We’ll definitely work with them in the future.

Andy and Ricky at Fortem Digital did a great job of sorting out our e-commerce website at a very reasonable price. At every stage they provided expert guidance and made it all quite simple. When it comes to websites there is always be another job to do but we are delighted with the results so far.

Absolutely 1st class. This company has it all, professionalism, experience, great design, good impartial advice and above all, they have really impressed us with an in-depth understanding of our needs. Perhaps a better understanding of those needs than we had!

Great communication, with almost immediate answers to our queries. Very highly recommended.

We asked for an updated faster website that looked like our previous one. That’s exactly what we got on time and on budget. The guys at Fortem Digital are easy to work with and offer solutions, not problems. Thank you for doing a great job.

From start to finish, it was a pleasure having Fortem Digital design my new website. Andy helped by explaining things simply, listening and interpreting my ideas with amazing attention to detail. He was always quick to answer my many questions and make the tiny changes I wanted. Fortem Digital took the time to get to know me and what I wanted which enabled them to create and design a stand out website which is really easy to navigate and super functional. I can’t recommend Fortem Digital highly enough.
