What YUNO Said

“We were really pleased with our initial launch into the marketplace.”

Founder/ CEO

Our Solution

KDG worked with Yuno for 18 months before we ever started developing the app to provide valuable business consulting and startup advisory services.

Collaborating for Success

“We gained insights on various tools and approaches to managing development projects that will certainly be useful as we move forward.”
Andre Walters
Founder/ CEO

During the pre-development stage of the project, KDG’s CEO Kyle David was so impressed with Yuno founders Andre Walters and Myron Tay that he encouraged Kyle David Capital, LP, a venture fund with investments in eight other tech companies nationwide, to make a significant startup investment in Yuno. The investment earned Kyle David a seat on Yuno’s board and provided a boost of resources that helped the young company jump out of the gate with a robust iOS app that allows merchants, brands, and consumers to interact in real time.

Designing a More Rewarding Way to Shop

Designed with success in mind, the meticulously developed Yuno app has a distributed hosting environment. This allows the application’s capacity to increase exponentially as app usage requires. The app is also integrated with credit card processing, ACH transactions, and full reporting on financial flows. Escrow accounting through BalancedPayments.com allows Yuno to take a select percentage of a transaction before forwarding on the proceeds to the merchant. With all of these transactions, a strong accounting engine was paramount. Every penny had to be accounted for and reconciled in real time.

“[The whole Kyle David team] kept the various participants in the project really organized and focused on achieving the grand objective. Observing The Kyle David Group’s management of the project was beneficial to our group. We gained insights on various tools and approaches to managing development projects that will certainly be useful as we move forward,” remarks Walters.

The Launch

Walters and Tay set their sights on an aggressive schedule for the launch of Yuno, which required a commitment to perfection. “We focused our launch timeline around the 2014 holiday season and getting the product in the marketplace in time to be relevant during that season,” says Walters. “We also wanted to do appropriate testing in the 4th quarter of 2014 to put ourselves in a solid position to succeed in 2015.”

The successful launch went off with a big bang and a launch party.
