Iplay is a social platform created by sport lovers for sport lovers, built for iOS and Android. It lets athletes connect with their fans, talk with teammates, coaches and manage their careers.

The main challenge in this project was to create a fully functioning MVP in time for the 2016 European Handball Championships in Poland. The MVP of Iplay was released and available for download a couple of days before the start of the tournament. Check out Iplay on the App Store!

After positive feedback arrived for Iplay in iOS, our client decided to move on and build a version for Android devices. 10Clouds designers and developers braught the app to life in a perfect shape - you can download it from Google Play and see!

GlucoseMama

GlucoseMama connects pregnant women with diabetes and medical experts, in the effort of making future moms' lives healthier. The app is currently used in a medical study at the University of Maryland.

The iOS app consists of two main focuses - on logging blood sugar levels, and on planning meals and registering the daily carbohydrates intake. These, combined with a playful design and a reward system, makes GlucoseMama not just a tool, but a companion and emotional support in gestational diabetes management.

Every major step taken in GlucoseMama comes with a reward. The fact that you succesfully did your first log, chose the right food to eat, or kept tracking your health data up until the baby's birth - these are the reasons to stay positive.

timeION

timeION is an online app that enables company employees to easily communicate an absence, inform about remote work or request time off. The app simplifies the time off request policy and makes the experience pleasurable for both employees and managers. It lets users see all colleagues' availability at a glance and receive absence notifications from the closest coworkers at the right time.

One of the challenges was to create a system that established employee schedules in different timezones. Our back-end team built REST API with Django, Django Rest Framework and PostgreSQL while front-end developers used AngularJS and Bootstrap.

The goal was to create a brand that people would enjoy and actually want to use its product instead of being forced to use it. We played with letters and symbols to come up with timeION’s logo - simple yet eye-catching.

CallerSmart

CallerSmart is a telephone number directory created by its own users. Our work in this project started from mobile development, but we ended up delivering on mobile and web application. Together with our client David Crane, we’ve built a tool that makes phone communication safer and easier to manage.

Thanks to starting up with the iOS app, we were able to develop the product in a mobile-first approach. The plans are that the web app will serve all the functionalities of the smartphone app. At this point, we’re fully responsible for front-end as well as back-end development.

uring the development of the mobile app, David took our collaboration to the next level and asked if we could take care of the overall app backend. We were excited to take on a new mission!

Feedback summary: 

The newly launched app has achieved significant recognition within the App Store and has attracted an impressive number of users. The product has been featured in articles and on media outlets, aiding in exposure. The 10Clouds team combines efficiency and consistency for a productive engagement.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the COO of Wishu. We’re a mobile app that offers a peer-to-peer marketplace for requesting or offering talents and products, facilitated through in-app wallet transactions. I’m responsible for overseeing the further development of the app, manage the technicalities of the marketplace, and monitor the processes for growth.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 10Clouds?

We were in the process of developing the concept for the app and raising investments. We needed to find a team of developers who could understand our audience, security needs, and has experience in UX design.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted the app to enable straightforward peer-to-peer transactions. Ultimately, we wanted to begin development early in the year and launch by summer, and modify based on user feedback.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found 10Clouds online and compared their record against a dozen other developers. Based on the apps they created in the past, we chose them for the project.

Describe the project in detail.

We visited 10Clouds’ office for a series of workshops with their development team to better explain our needs, business goals, and audience. We also elaborated on the features we wanted them to implement. A different company completed the app’s designs, so we shared those with the 10Clouds team so they could create wireframes. They redesigned a few aspects of the original outline to match the new functionalities we desired. From there, we began our scrum sprints, including weekly demos and refinement meetings. They also contributed suggestions and feedback for each step. Their developers enabled in-app payment features, and they are currently providing further updates and developments to the post-launch app.

What was the team composition?

We work with two developers, one for the backend and one working on the frontend. We are also working with one UX and one UI specialists, one QA teammate, and a project manager. The size of the team remained consistent, but we did have new developers switching throughout the project, depending on the current needs.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Within the app's first month of being live, we’ve experienced a large influx in downloads and users. The final product has earned five stars in the App Store and has been named in the top 200 of lifestyle apps in the store. Additionally, we’ve been invited to several events and were featured on media platforms because of the app’s success. We continue to receive positive feedback from users. We’re highly pleased with their work so far.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We communicate and stay in-sync through Slack. We also use Google Hangouts for our weekly meetings and meet in their office occasionally for effective workshops. We’ve developed a professional and personal relationship with their team as they are fantastic and interactive when we meet face-to-face. It is my role as the product owner to ensure 10Clouds understands all of our needs, and they prioritize productive meetings. 

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I’ve found their response time to be valuable—they are always ready to answer questions and listen to my issues. Their development speed is helpful, as well. They are constantly available to start working on a new problem. Their team has a professional attitude and has a consistent way of handling development. With agile project management, there can sometimes be uncertainty, but 10Clouds ensured the project ran smoothly.

Are there any areas for improvement?

When we switched from being agile to a fixed price model, we ran into a few issues distributing tasks within the team, so that process could use improvement for an easier transition. The price can also be daunting for an early-stage startup, but we value quality work to attract our users more than anything else.

Feedback summary: 

10Clouds developed and implemented a fully functional software that performs as intended and is aligned with the specified designs. The developer they assigned diligently completed high-caliber work. The end client expressed satisfaction with the deliverables they produced. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of Baker EDM Lab, a scientific consultancy.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 10Clouds?

I needed someone to help me develop software to handle automated detection for online learning. I wanted to make more sophisticated models of student knowledge.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Using the scientifically developed models we already had prepared, 10Clouds helped create a version that was deployment ready and more widely and quickly accessible. After I gave them the requirements and models, they built out the software.

10Clouds designed the software to help nonprofits provide educational services to students. It implements a sophisticated algorithm in real time and connects to the learning system through an API. The learning system interacts with the model live to function as needed. The team developed the software used Java. For this project, we handled all of the UI/UX internally.

What is the team composition? 

10Clouds assigned one developer to our project. He also acted as the project manager.

How did you come to work with 10Clouds?

A colleague of mine recommended 10Clouds and told me they performed good work. I found that assessment to be accurate in my experience.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $8,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from December 2017–July 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

10Clouds successfully completed the software we requested. It works as designed and intended. My client was happy with the results. 10Clouds delivered a perfectly reliable product. We haven’t had any problems with it.

How did 10Clouds perform from a project management standpoint?

10Clouds was very efficient to work with, and our communication was great. We coordinated with weekly updates using Google Hangouts and email updates when feasible.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The developer we worked with from 10Clouds was impressively confident and picked up on concepts quickly. He put in a substantial effort and performed very high-quality work.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There wasn’t a great payment system set up, so I had to spend a lot of time figuring out how to compensate the team for their work.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

No, I don’t have any advice.

Feedback summary: 

The delivered UX design exceeded all expectations. Now developing the product, 10Clouds is responsive to any bugs or issues that arise. The team offers top-tier communication, a diligent work ethic, and expansive technical expertise. It’s clear that they’re invested in the project’s success.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder and CEO of a mobile investment platform for cryptocurrencies. Through our application, users can invest in a collection of cryptocurrencies, rather than buying a single asset.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 10Clouds?

We wanted to simplify the investment process by creating the most fluid in-app experience using feedback gathered from UX/UI research. Ideally, the app needed a simple look, but something more than just a basic white-background application with minimal functionality.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We started by assembling the app’s design. After we collaborated on designs for every page in the application, 10Clouds created the wireframes using Sketch and InVision. They implemented strategies that prioritized user experience, creating a unique and sharp platform that’s accessible for all of our users. Once we mapped each interface and the app’s operation flow, we transitioned into the development phase.

Currently, 10Clouds is using native coding languages to build both an iOS and Android version of the platform. Once it’s finished and launched, users can download the app then begin our extensive sign-up process. Because we’re a financial service, our users have to verify their identity by uploading a picture of their license and inputting personal information. After registering, users are prompted to connect their bank account and make purchases from our base fund, which is populated by 20 different cryptocurrencies. Basically, users can translate their U.S. dollars to cryptocurrency, but instead of investing in one coin, they invest in 20 in one transaction.

What is the team composition?

We work with a scrum master, who heads up the project, an iOS developer, an Android developer, two backend developers, a part-time DevOps developer, a part-time QA developer, and two UX/UI designers.

How did you come to work with 10Clouds?

I found some of their design work on Dribbble and hired them to design my product. In that process, I realized that their team is very technically strong and transparent in their work. With that in mind, I also asked them to develop the application.

How much have you invested with them?

We started working together in February 2018.

What is the status of this engagement?

So far, we’ve spent $85,000, but I estimate the entire project will total over $300,000.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Because we haven’t launched yet, we don’t have any solid data. In terms of quality, our app’s user experience stands out among our industry competitors. The three-month period we spent on conceptualizing the aesthetic and operative flow was definitely worth it. We’re really impressed with the results so far.

As we move through development, 10Clouds is quick to address any issues or bugs we encounter. They’re the most agile team of developers that I’ve ever worked with. They adjust quickly, communicate responsively, and work diligently.

How did 10Clouds perform from a project management standpoint?

In the beginning, I mainly communicated with a project manager via Skype. Now I interact with my full team via Slack. We schedule a 15-minute group video call every day, with additional communication as necessary. We use Jira to manage our backlog and plan our schedules.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are very skilled in terms of communication, agility, and technical ability. Through their work, we can tell that their team is fully engaged and invested in our vision. They continue to work very hard to assure they meet our standards.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could improve the accuracy of their time estimates. Development work is hard to predict, so sometimes we go a little over the initial deadline. I’ll also take some responsibility for this because we often make changes to the development schedule.

Any advice for potential customers?

No matter what stage a company is in, 10Clouds offers beneficial solutions. Including both design and development, they cover every aspect needed to create a product. Their team’s agile approach and extensive skill range set them up to properly execute any project.

Users praise the app for its appealing design and impressive functionality, making for a successful engagement and potentially leading to further collaboration for an Android iteration. The 10Clouds team is prompt, organized, flexible with budgets, and works well to understand end goals.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the director of Cereal Gaming, which hosts gaming tournaments and competitive gaming matchups.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 10Clouds?

With 10Clouds, we set out to design and develop a competitive gaming app that users can use to accept challenges and matchups against other gamers around the world.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

At the moment, it’s a mobile application only available for iOS and for users over 18 years old. I provided them with some semblance of wireframe sketches, but they had a more thorough knowledge of the software that I needed so that we could move forward. They broke down the specific features available within my budget. PayPal was incorporated into the initial build, but it later needed to be removed, which necessitated a second development phase.

What is the team composition?

At the peak of the project, we worked with a team of five people.

How did you come to work with 10Clouds?

A friend recommended them to me. I spoke with a few local firms, but they weren’t appropriate fits. 10Clouds was the best option because of the team they had available.

How much have you invested with them?

To this point, I have spent a little more than $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The first phase of development lasted from July-November 2017. The second phase lasted from May-June 2018. We have plans to develop an Android iteration next year, if not at the end of this year.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

When we began this project, there was no prominent app available for competitive gaming, but I believe we have addressed that need in the gaming community. The overall quality of the platform is excellent, and we’ve received very positive feedback from users, specifically about the design. It is not the biggest app, but it runs very smoothly.

How did 10Clouds perform from a project management standpoint?

Because they are located in Poland and I’m in the UK, we anticipated an international or language barrier. We mitigated those concerns by discussing all details several times. My communication through Slack with the project manager and the development team was hassle-free.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They understood my financial limitations with this project. There is no large funding stream behind me, but they worked with me to develop what I wanted. I appreciated their flexibility.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Our opening brief needed to be a bit clearer as to the scope of the project.

Any advice for potential customers?

Especially if it is somebody’s first time making an app, it is important to make sure the development process is clearly specified.

Despite initial communication hurdles, 10Clouds uses scrum-based management methods to quickly adjust to changing requirements. Their product has received positive user feedback, and they have been quick to solve any minor bugs in the coding.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the technical project manager for an audit and tax advisory company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 10Clouds?

Because we don’t have the necessary in-house developers, we needed a near shore development team to help us implement a novel B2B web application and platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We came to 10Clouds with a concept of the product and a rough draft of the key features we wanted. It’s a B2B web application for tax professionals that helps large organizations establish and streamline their tax processes. Users keep track of deadlines, milestones, and delegate tasks across different tax offices.

We worked together to decide on the technology stack. 10Clouds supported us during the development phase by using Angular on the frontend, and Node.js with a PostgreSQL database for the backend. Additionally, there were a few integration points, such as our email systems, that they had to authenticate against our existing active directory or user databases.

Currently, we are working on the second version of the application. They are providing coding and design work to help make the application more user-friendly.

What is the team composition?

Our team has three developers, one designer, one QA tester, and a project manager.

How did you come to work with 10Clouds?

We were looking for Eastern or Central European companies to support us and used Clutch.co to help in the vendor selection process. We compared eight or nine competitors but ultimately went with 10Clouds because of their technical capabilities, reasonable pricing, and how easily we worked together during the proposal stage.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $150,000–$200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in June 2017, and are currently in the development phase for the second major release of the web app, which we expect to continue for the next few months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We don’t have quantifiable metrics, but the web application has been well received by our clients, and we have a strong pipeline of sales. We are continuing to improve the design and UX, but users have been satisfied so far. Most of the problems in coding came from minor bugs, and 10Clouds fixed those quickly.

How did 10Clouds perform from a project management standpoint?

We use Jira to organize our projects with scrum-based project management methods, which have worked well for us. We have calls on at least a weekly basis, and use Slack for daily communication.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They deliver on what they promise, and we’ve been impressed with the high quality of their work. The product is consistently on time and within budget, which has built our confidence in what they can do.

Are there any areas they could improve?

At the beginning of the project, there were a few issues with communication around billing and a few features. However, after that initial learning stage of figuring each other out, those issues were ironed out quickly.

There was an instance where they underestimated the complexity of a feature, so it took longer than expected to develop it. However, they didn’t bill us more for that work, which we were happy about.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Software development projects require being flexible as requirements change. Because of that, it’s necessary to stay in close communication with the development team. Be open and transparent about your priorities, what the most important features to implement, and how strict your timeline is.

Feedback summary: 

The high-quality web app is now live and successfully streamlines multiple sources of information. 10Clouds did particularly well on their design of the CSS and properly structuring the code. The team is highly skilled in the desired technologies and collaborates well to complete the work.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CTO of a company working in the transportation industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 10Clouds?

We were trying to build a web app that would provide business transportation data in a smoother manner than what we currently had.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Instead of calling parties and obtaining data, we wanted to display it in a web browser. There was quite a bit of data to be displayed, so the design itself was quite a challenge, as was aggregating all the data. It wasn’t a simple app. 10Clouds provided assistance on design, project coordination, and software development.

The key features of the product are integration with other parties’ data, presenting that data on the map, exporting screens as PDFs, generating charts, and showing larger quantities of data on the screen. We had to generate multiple custom charts, which required a whole charting system. The solution is integrated with multiple internal systems.

The technologies used were AngularJS, HTML, and CSS on the frontend, and a bit of Node.js on the backend.

10Clouds also provided mobile app development work for a different solution of my company. It was a financial app that gathered details from vessel crew members so that we could perform a smooth payment process. The app was developed using React Native, as a hybrid approach and can be deployed on multiple platforms.

What is the team composition?

We worked with their head of sales, a project coordinator, a lead developer, and three developers from their team.

How did you come to work with 10Clouds?

I received a recommendation. I am from the same country as 10Clouds. The main criteria for us were their technical capabilities and pricing. We had struggled a few times with other contractors and couldn’t find someone with the proper technical knowledge, especially in terms of AngularJS. 10Clouds hit the right balance between technical capabilities and pricing.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested around $350,000 in this company’s services. The last project we worked on cost around $150,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The development started in October 2017 and the product was delivered in March 2018. They delivered some smaller projects before this, including a mobile app. They aren’t providing maintenance for our latest product, but they are for the previous ones.

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The web app is currently live. It’s of good quality. The look-and-feel was implemented pretty well. They had to implement designs that they partially created, and they did a very good job on the CSS. The code is properly structured, and it follows industry standards. This makes it easy for people coming from the outside to understand it. They used the AngularJS framework properly, dividing it into layers. They have taken care of any crashes and bugs immediately.

How did 10Clouds perform from a project management standpoint?

We employed a solution similar to scrum. They knew when to interact with us, and didn’t over-interact. They made sure that resources were available as promised and that the deliverables were delivered on time and on budget. We interacted through Zoom online conference calls, and we also visited in-person.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have the ability to create a good team with more than sufficient capabilities in the technology I want to work with. They select people who work well together and complement each other.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It might be worth considering making improvements to the testing area. They weren’t able to provide a tester capable of understanding the business logic.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

10Clouds is a good choice for a client looking for a decently-priced partner that has good AngularJS skills, as well as the ability to set up good teams.

Feedback summary: 

Within three months of launching, the app reached 5,000 downloads and attracted $1,000 from in-app purchases. 10Clouds’ transparency, reasonable price point, and consistent support continue to strengthen the product.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the project manager of a social gaming startup called Royals App. Our company is located in Poland, and we currently have eight employees. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 10Clouds?

We decided to cooperate with 10Clouds company in order to develop our minimum viable product (MVP). 10Clouds handled both the design and the development of the app. We’re still working with an iOS developer and a backend developer from 10Clouds to maintain the app and develop new features.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed to translate our idea into an iOS app that could validate our business model in the Polish market. We also wanted to reach 5,000 downloads of our app within three months after the launch. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

First, we researched the best Polish software houses. We contacted five companies and narrowed our options to two companies after receiving their offers. We also looked at each team’s portfolio and valuation, and we contacted the CEOs of businesses who’d cooperated with each software house. In the end, selecting 10Clouds was a hard but good decision.

Describe the project in detail.

We gave 10Clouds an initial brief, which included a short description of our social gaming app, user stories, and a summary of our work on personas. We started with a scoping meeting in which the whole team took part, including the backend developer, designer, iOS developer, and project manager. In the meeting, we created the scope of the MVP and scheduled four sprints. During each sprint, we held daily meetings to make sure we were staying within our timeline.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a project manager, a designer, a senior iOS developer, and a backend developer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We achieved both of our primary goals. Three months after the app launched, we reached 5,000 downloads. Users shared great feedback, and we successfully validated our business model and earned our first $1,000 from in-app purchases.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Communicating with their team is easy. Even when some bugs appeared, we knew we could fully rely on their support. All in all, we’ve set up a great workflow together.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

10Clouds has an experienced team that engages fully in each project.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Having more experienced developers would help expedite the work in certain cases.

Feedback summary: 

The launched speech recognition software now has thousands of users, which is attributed to 10Clouds’ work. Their expertise, creativity, discipline, and efficiency have led to more projects.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We provide cloud-based software for natural language processing and speech recognition.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 10Clouds?

Initially, we hired 10Clouds for two different projects: one on speech recognition and one on natural language processing.

What were your goals for this project?

All of the solutions have to be hosted on Amazon Web Services. They have to be scalable, reliable, intuitive, and easy to maintain.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were recommended by friends.

Describe the project in detail.

Together, we’ve completed two small projects and continue working on two bigger ones. Initially, we would write the core artificial intelligence algorithms and leave the rest to 10Clouds. They’ve helped us with UX/UI design, code development, continuous integration and deployment, launching, and maintenance. We’ve also determined the best developers and stack, wrote user stories, ran sprints, and measured productivity.

What was the team composition?

For each project, we had one UX designer, one UI designer, one frontend developer, 1–2 backend developers, two or more full-stack developers, one DevOps, and one QA.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What outcomes or results can you share that demonstrate progress and/or success?

We successfully launched the speech project on time. Since then, it has become one of the best solutions on the market, with more than 30,000 users to date. Developers just love our product.

How effective was the project management?

We have weekly meetings to measure project progress, do demos, and plan future sprints. They speak excellent English, so we’ve never had problems with communication. We use Slack and Jira to discuss goals and issues.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

10Clouds can always find the best developer for a project. I'm often impressed by the quality of work they deliver. I appreciate their knowledge, discipline, code of conduct, and creativity. So far, 10Clouds has been the best engineering development company I have used. I've learned so much from them.

What tips or recommendations do you have?

I would recommend them to everyone.

Feedback summary: 

After a testing and review period, the finished prototype is being prepared for release in the App Store. Communicating effectively, carefully tracking their tasks, and always attending meetings on time, the team displayed a high level of professionalism throughout the project.  

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder of Nordskar Kommunikasjon AS, a marketing consultancy firm in Norway, run solely by me.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE


What challenge were you trying to address with 10Clouds?

I use freelancers for implementations and work that I do for my clients.
My idea was to develop a mobile application which makes it easier for the user to pitch in for a friend who is having a difficult time. It would create a circle around that person of their common friends that will follow up on them in that hard period.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

10Clouds took care of everything that connected with the design, wireframing, cost, evaluations, and then the development of the application.

They started off with workshops to analyze the idea I had. They then went through the design process. Once that was finished, we went into wireframing and more workshops to dive deeper into how things work. The application was developed as an MVP [minimum viable product] for iOS to begin with. That was to test it in Norwegian and English, and see how it works. If successful, we’ll continue on with Android development as well.

What is the team composition?

We had a key account manager who took care of everything. Whenever there was a larger supervisory issue, I would call him. We also had a day to day project manager and people from different departments, such as two designers and four or five people from the development side.

How did you come to work with 10Clouds?

I needed to find a partner who understood my business idea and my product. I also wanted a company that I could discuss things with and would follow through with the development data. I searched for several places in Poland and other European countries, as well as back home in Norway.

I surveyed four companies that I found on Clutch and 10Clouds won the contest with a clear margin. One of the reasons was our chemistry and the good atmosphere in their company. Some of the other companies were distributors with no physical building, and wouldn’t be able to do the work that 10Clouds could provide with 70 or 80 people on their team. The size of their team felt safe for me, as they weren’t just a small setup with three or four people.

How much have you invested in them?

I spent around $75,000 in total.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in April 2017 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The MVP is basically finished. We are now only dealing with release materials for the App Store and some discussions on what text to use.

We had a test period in the local market in Oslo, using some friends and family as well as some professionals. During that time, there were a couple features that we had to change dramatically in the middle of the development period, and they did that.

I have a lot of experience in design and advertising, and in my opinion, the team is top quality in its field. I couldn’t be happier with their way of communicating as well as their designs, and how they handled my comments when I disagreed with them. It was a very comfortable and professional process.

How did 10Clouds perform from a project management standpoint?

There were no bumps that needed to be fixed or problems along the way. We followed the schedule they set up and the project manager ran things just fine. There were no issues with tracking time and making sure that everything was completed.

They invited me to Jira, but most of the time we communicated through Slack and email, in addition to Hangouts on Google, where we had messages going back and forth.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The most impressive thing about them is that they are always very precise. They are very exact about things. When the meeting starts at 10 o’clock in the morning, it always starts on time. They’re very accurate in the way they treated the process and the way that they treated me. We made several agreements that we followed and everything always happened in the correct manner.

I have never worked with any company that has been so precise and accurate in the way they follow up. There are no delays and they have been absolutely magnificent. I was very impressed, and it was surprising — I was not prepared for that.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t know enough about their skills when it comes to business evaluation, business management, or the process of going deep into my business idea to see how it works and how to monetize it. However, I can’t say anything negative about that either because that little piece of the puzzle was so small in my particular project.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

As a client, respond quickly and give the developers clear and precise briefs. Also communicate clearly. One of the reasons I am so happy with them is because I do my best to be a clear and understandable client. Using that as a tool to keep them motivated to do their best is a good strategy.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Though easy communication and seamless implementation, 10Clouds delivered pleasing UX and visuals for the site. They readily asked questions, and daily check-ins kept the project on track ahead of major deadlines.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our startup sells a WiFi enabled chip and accompanying app for smartphones. It allows users to open their door from their phone. I act as marketing manager and project manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 10Clouds?

We wanted to redesign the site. Before we launched, people could pre-order the product, but we wanted our own shop that we could host using our servers. We wanted to use Shopify for the checkout.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The main task was creating the shop. We now offer partner products and bundles, so it was important to integrate all of that into the site. We wanted to focus on branding to make it clear what you’re buying from us, even though we sell other company’s products for keyless entry. We had some brand guidelines but this project meant coming up with a whole new design. The focus was on our customers, who are mainly tech lovers.

We use Node.js and React for our website. We wanted to be sure 10Clouds could work with those and enable a pleasant customer experience. They also needed to work in Shopify and make sure Google integrations were successful. The site is bilingual (German and English), which complicated geolocation services.

What is the team composition?

We had two project managers, a design lead, and a development lead who coordinated the rest of the dev team.

How did you come to work with 10Clouds?

My colleague worked with them before and was quite happy with them. I then did a smaller project with one of their developers and we were happy with what they produced. Since we worked with them already for development, we decided to bring them on for the design as well.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about €25,000 ($30,992.75) on the website build.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in the Fall of 2016. We still work with them regularly.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

People could pre-order the hardware before we launched, but it’s difficult to quantify the difference in sales now that we have the product. In general, we’re happy with the design and renderings 10Clouds provided. We also like the UX.

How did 10Clouds perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management was quite good and implementation was seamless. They’re very easy to communicate with and their response times are good. If we had any issues with the website, they do their best to fix them.

We worked together on the site on retainer, so it was easy to reach them. We communicated by email, phone, Slack, and Jira. If they had any questions, they would ask. While we were in development, we had a crucial deadline. We scheduled daily check-ins so they could report to me and stay on top of issues. These check-ins let us pull engineers from our side if there were any questions about our servers or anything else in our control.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re great in development. They know how to provide good estimates and they focus on QA more than other companies we’ve worked with. Everything they provided was good-quality. If we found any issues, they fixed them immediately.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We had some small issues with timing in the design phase when creativity took longer than we expected. They respond to feedback and are always trying to improve. There isn’t anything specific that I would point out as a problem.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It helps to be really specific from the beginning. If you prepare all the assignments up front and agree to requirements ahead of time, you won’t have to schedule additional briefings afterward.
