Key clients: 

Asmodee, StepStone, Baidu, TrustStamp, Skedulo, ZappRideShare, Coinquista. See what clients say about working with 10Clouds. Companies from all around the world entrusted us with their application development.

Skedulo - Intelligent workforce management Image

Skedulo - Intelligent workforce management

Skedulo platform is built for the modern workforce and designed with your mobile team in mind.

A couple of months after the release, we analyzed how the product performs on business and UX levels, to suggest and implement improvements. Our experts follow current market trends to propose new solutions that are suitable for the client. The cooperation turned into a close, long-term business relationship - both design

& development.
Forbes - The Forbes Dashboard Image

Forbes - The Forbes Dashboard

Marketing managers spend too much time on gathering analytic data of branded content campaigns published on their website. Scouting for data from various sources, putting it together and passing it to clients is often a difficult and needlessly complicated process. Forbes and its clients needed an all-in-one tool for managing and monitoring their campaigns.

10Clouds created a design for the Forbes Dashboard - an

intuitive web tool that gathers, displays, and exports multi-source analytic data for Forbes campaigns. The dashboard can be used by both Forbes’ staff and clients. It’s giving them direct access to data, thus saving both sides a lot of time. This solution wouldn’t work without spot-on design and data visualization - that’s what we delivered.

Playground - Pushing the Boundaries of Mobile Designs

Playground is a mobile app that showcases 10Clouds design and development skills. We have allowed our designers to unleash their creativity fully and blended their ideas with intuitive UX and flawless code written in React Native, Kotlin and Swift. The open-sourced app consists of three modules that developers can modify and use.

PlayGround proves that with the cooperation of great designers and skillful

developers, everything is possible. The set of three modules pushes the boundaries of mobile animations that are both beautiful and usable. We want others to get inspired by PlayGround, so everyone can download the source code, modify it, and even use it in another project free of charge.

Zick is a Tinder-like social application dedicated to match people nearby. Thanks to the app, users can not only find interesting people but chat and have video calls with them as well.

Zick’s mission is to provide people with a better dating experience. The app matches people based on their location and lets them easily find someone attractive.

In this project, 10Clouds made the entire backend and took care of

the design and development of the iOS app.

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 Image

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.

CallerSmart Image

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! Visit CallerSmart
timeION Image

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. Visit timeION

Feedback summary: 

10Clouds provides skilled developers that take ownership of their work and seek to provide the best solutions. The honest and transparent team is open to learning new skills and taking on challenges. A scrum master ensures the work is moving forward, which adds further value to the partnership.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the VP of engineering at G-Coin, a gold-backed crypto token platform that enables people to buy fractional shares of gold that are stored in a vault in Switzerland and then buy, sell, and exchange that token as a form of payment.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 10Clouds?

10Clouds is a core development partner for our platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

10Clouds provides us with DevOps, Python, React, React Native, NodeJS, and QA engineers. They support us with key development capabilities we need beyond our own development team. We prefer to work with one trusted partner rather than piece together a team of contractors.

What is the team composition?

We have a team of close to 10 people right now.

How did you come to work with 10Clouds?

Another partner of ours recommended them. We tried them out and were very happy. 

How much have you invested with them?

I believe we’ve spent more than $1 million at this point.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working with them for almost two years now and intend to continue our partnership.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

What I love about their developers is that they really take ownership of what they do. They don’t just do what they’re told to do; they really think about the product, code, and solution, and they recommend their own improvements. They even create improvements to the solution without any input from us, which just demonstrates more ownership on their behalf, makes our lives easier, and makes for a better outcome to the whole product.

How did 10Clouds perform from a project management standpoint?

We have both online and offline communication through things like Slack and daily morning huddles. They provide scrum master support for us, and that scrum master also works a lot with the team internally during their business hours to move everything along. He’s always up to date and knows everything that’s going on in the project. He creates agendas and meeting summaries to make sure that everyone is on the same page. He is constantly looking out for topics that need to tackled, discussed, or communicated about to move things forward.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Everybody we’ve hired through them has had very high skillsets. They’re eager to learn and try new things. We frequently ask them to pick up work that they’ve never done before, and they’re very willing to work with us and take up the challenge.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I only wish that they offered more than just programming services, but I don’t think that’s necessarily in their business model. We’ve been hoping they could help us with certain marketing activities like marketing, creative or SEO. There has been some turnover on their side, but that’s expected with a lot of consulting companies.

Any advice for potential customers?

I’d say that you can trust their expertise and suggestions. They’re honest and transparent in everything that they do, so it’s easy to establish a good working relationship. They’re willing to grow and hire skillsets that they might not have initially. Even if they don’t have somebody available right now, they’re good about hiring skillsets that you might need on your project, so that shouldn’t be a stopper.

10Clouds has exceeded expectations by delivering high-quality work and unmatched customer service for incredibly reasonable costs. Their work has received high praise from investors and target users. Despite COVID-19, they’ve stuck to the schedule and managed the project seamlessly.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of Higher Metrics. The engagement I’m working with on with 10Clouds is for another company called Moiety.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 10Clouds?

One of my investors proposed a challenge for me to try and solve: simplify or gamify the job application process to make it more geared toward millennials.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

10Clouds is doing our branding. We’ve been building a clickable prototype for both the mobile and web app. They’re also doing a video reel. We plan to show the prototypes and video reel to investors, and then once we get financing, we’ll develop the web and mobile app with 10Clouds.

What is the team composition?

I work with seven people right now.

How did you come to work with 10Clouds?

I found them through Clutch. I was originally talking to companies here in the states; I was hesitant to go overseas. I was just about to kick everything off with one company but then got an email from them saying they had just taken on a new Fortune 500 client, so they were going to put my project on the back burner.

I decided to call 10Clouds because their reviews were great. With the other company, I just got the sense that they didn’t care about my small company. From day one of working with 10Clouds, I felt like I was Bill Gates. They knocked it out of the park. After the first couple of phone calls, it was a no brainer; these were the guys to go with.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $30,000 so far. All in, it’ll be about $31,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

My initial discovery session with them was May 2019, but we started the branding and prototyping in January 2020. The work is ongoing. The prototype will be done next week and the video reel June 1.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

With everything going on with COVID, a lot of stuff has gotten pushed back. We started our work together before the outbreak really took off, and we’ve only been delayed a week – and that was because of me trying to get some documents together. We just completed the branding yesterday, and it looks great. There has been no slowdown, which has definitely been a testament to them.

All I had to do was unload my ideas on them, and they delivered amazing branding. My investors have been blown away, which is especially great since they’re older, and this is geared toward millennials and Gen Zs. I’ve shown the app to millennials, and they all wonder where this app has been.

How did 10Clouds perform from a project management standpoint?

They are amazing. There are some really great companies in America, but 10Clouds has blown them out of the water. They manage a bunch of people in different time zones – they’re out of Warsaw and I’m in Dallas. Olena (Agile Project Manager) literally changed her schedule because I’m in America. Even if I write her an email late at night, I get a response, and by the time I wake up the next morning, action has been taken, everyone has been queued in, and we’re up and running. It’s really impressive how they manage their people.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I talked to a lot of companies that said they love working with startups, but the walk didn’t match the talk. Something I’ve found with 10Clouds is that, throughout the project, they’ve made it as unintimidating as possible. They’ve shown unbelievable enthusiasm. I’ve been telling other entrepreneurs I know that if they want to partner with a team, they can’t go wrong with 10Clouds. They genuinely make you feel valued and like a true partner, no matter how small you are.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of anything. We haven’t even had a hiccup; it’s crazy how flawless this has been, considering we’ve never developed an app. I wouldn’t change a single thing about them.

Any advice for potential customers?

I have a friend who’s the social media manager for a really big energy company, and I was showing him the mobile prototype last week. He was very impressed and asked how it was working out with 10Clouds being abroad. I told him that you get unbelievable quality and much better prices and service. My recommendation is to hire them as soon as you can; just set up a phone call, and let them do what they do best.

Feedback summary: 

Both the client and end-client were pleased with the delivered platform, citing its robust features. 10Clouds focus on customer service and proactive development results in a stable long-term partner. They’re nimble and willing to work in an agile environment.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a senior product manager at an accounting firm. I’m a part of the experience center, which is the more of the digital arm of the company. I’m a product owner.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 10Clouds?

We were building a platform that enables financial service providers to register and get a license to operate in our country. There’s a new law that states you need a new type of license.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We developed the platform for our client together. The backend is Python, and the frontend is React. The frontend is more or less forms that the end-users can fill in. We integrated Jira so our client could process requests coming from their financial service provider clients. There was also a payment integration.

What is the team composition?

There were changes over different iterations, but there were always around five developers.

How did you come to work with 10Clouds?

They were an existing supplier. We did a previous project with them and had a good experience, so we went back to them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent under €120,000–€130,000 ($130,400–$141,200 USD) so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in April 2019. The first MVP came in August. We stopped our work then, but we started up again in January.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our client was very happy. I’m a bridge between development and the client. If the requirements are met and the features are working, then it’s positive. The client also gave the whole project team a good grade. It’s always important that we progress and deliver value over time. Every sprint feature was developed.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s the trust and relationship we started to build with them. They added additional seniority on the team. If I work with a partner, I need to be able to rely on them. In terms of issues, we had clear communication and knew what to do. They also proactively came up with options. They’re always thinking about the project, sometimes challenging us rather than just delivering something.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It was a little unclear in the beginning about how we should work with them and onboard new people. They improved it when we onboarded a new team for a bigger, new iteration, though, and it went well.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have an agile mindset. It’s best if you have a team and a capacity set and then define the features during the project.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the SVP of engineering at Emergent Technology Holding, a supply chain company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 10Clouds?

We hired 10Clouds for staff augmentation services.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

10Clouds provided us with a team of developers based in Poland. Whenever we needed developers quickly for special projects, we turned to them for our software development needs.

One project involved a multi-tier application. Their team developed the backend using Python Django, Java, GraphQL, and specifically Apollo. The frontend was built in React and React Native. They also provided DevOps and product management support when needed. Their team did full feature development with their independent teams, as well.

What is the team composition?

At different points, we were assigned 15–20 developers. Right now, we’re at a lower number but plan on ramping back out.

How did you come to work with 10Clouds?

I was referred to them but ended up choosing them because of their flexibility when it comes to staffing.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested over $500,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement with 10Clouds began in January 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

In every area, the team at 10Clouds is full of highly-qualified, experienced developers that work at a competitive price. The developers also are professional and customer-oriented. The quality of code was very high, with a focus on unit testing and fully automated continuous integration.

There are no issues. If there were any problems, they would solve them quickly. 10Clouds is a strong Python shop but also specialize in React and other frontend technologies. They’re also skilled in web design.

How did 10Clouds perform from a project management standpoint?

Their communication skills are very high. The team at 10Clouds performs above expectation. They’re easy to work with. I’ve been in engagements with businesses all over the world, and 10Clouds is the best company to work with. They are amazing with project management, product analysis, and account management.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team at 10Clouds is willing to go above and beyond to solve any problems. Along with being excellent at communication, they pay close attention to the account management side. Their general attitude is that of partnering rather than providing a service. They’re invested in the success of the project. Their development quality is also extremely high.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I’m happy with everything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Kickoff an engagement with an onsite visit. After you have a core team, have a face-to-face meeting. Their developers are very capable, so try to give them as much information up front and let them give their input.

Great team to work with, very professional and capable. They were easy to communicate with and delivered on their commitments. They are very flexible and willing to do what it takes to get the project done.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We had a few hiccups on mapping the design approval workflow, so making sure everyone understands that from the beginning would be helpful. Budgeting forecasts, always a tough thing, could be slightly improved. Ours was a very fluid project, and so this would have been tough in most cases.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

10Clouds has set internal stakeholders up for success, and they’ve played a crucial part in enabling them to pick up new clients. The team’s expertise, professionalism, and flexibility set them apart. They manage the time difference effectively.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of a stock footage company that supplies clips to the global stock footage market.

There’s a high demand for video clips from stock footage distributors and the industry in general because of growing video trends, but to prepare the footage for market takes a lot of processing. Usually, the content creator doesn’t have the expertise or resources to get the footage in a sellable condition. What our company does is process raw footage to get it ready for sale for some of the world’s top stock footage distributors.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 10Clouds?

Our product chain must be ultra-efficient; otherwise, our profits disappear. It's a big challenge to optimize all of the variables throughout our technology stack that are needed to sustain our business.

Some years ago, we realized that to attain the ideal level of efficiency to function and scale, we needed to go into the cloud. Once we were in the cloud, there was a lot that needed to be done beyond building, including maintenance, security, storage, and automation.

At the same time, we had our own proprietary frontend with a processing system for files and metadata. It's a system that includes human teams that interface with multiple technologies. In order to build a system with a more efficient user experience, we need a lot of development.

For our business to succeed, we need an ultra-streamlined platform. We were looking for a development company with expertise in video and media as well as cloud architecture and frontend development. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Until now, the bulk of 10Clouds’s work has been development. They’ve handled some tech debt, refactored what we already had, built new architecture, and made sure security was locked down. The team has also done a lot of work on our frontend. 

They helped us build out our roadmap, and we’re now at the point where we’re starting to pivot toward that roadmap. We have a solid foundation to start building some exciting new features that we’ve been planning for a while.

What is the team composition?

Our 10Clouds core team has 5–6 people, including a project manager. They all attend our daily scrums. At times, the team grows up to eight people, depending on the work.

How did you come to work with 10Clouds?

We had a lot of different partnerships and have tried different approaches. We wanted a deep bench that we could draw from to put the right components in place, and that ended up being 10Clouds. They came highly recommended by someone who works at a very high level in the media space. We had a conversation with them and then moved forward.

How much have you invested with them?

Our company has probably spent $250,000–$300,000. Our monthly spend is between $20,000–$30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our work with 10Clouds began in January 2019, and we’re continuing to work with them to this day.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The difference between when we started working with them and now is night and day. We’ve been able to start accepting new contributors in a certain part of the business, and we’ve picked up some other enterprise clients. It’s been a really exciting time to be working with 10Clouds. We had a product launch, and we launched on schedule–what more can I say?

How did 10Clouds perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been a pleasure to work with. In the past, I’ve hired other formulas, including hiring other offshore vendors who ended up costing me money. The budget was certainly a factor in hiring 10Clouds, and I’m able to do more because of their rates, but I’d say the most important thing is their expertise. We wouldn’t be working with them if they didn’t have the level of expertise and professionalism that we demand. Otherwise, they’d be costing us money and risking the business.

Our partnership works pretty well. I think any type of vendor relationship comes down to personal relationships, i.e. how they connect with your team, how they communicate, and whether there is a level of trust. We’ve been able to establish a relationship that certainly makes everything go smoother. 

They’re six hours ahead of us, which took some adjustments on our end. However, there are some advantages to the time difference. No vendor wants a client hovering over them. We have daily scrums, morning our time and mid-afternoon their time. This seems to work well for everybody since they can relay what progress they’ve made that day, ask questions they have for us, and provide updates. We also discuss what they’ll be working on when we’re sleeping.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their expertise makes them stand out from other service providers, as does the type of people within their organization. They’re the kind of people we like working with. 10Clouds’s team is flexible and understands that clients sometimes have changing or last-minute needs. I see them as a real partner in our success, and that’s why we continue to work with them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I’d say not in the context of this project. We’re pretty much on track with everything. During the first couple of months, both sides had to make scheduling and communication adjustments, but that comes with engaging a new vendor. They worked to understand the project scope and what our needs were. We got through that phase as expected. 

Any advice for potential customers?

This is general advice, but definitely make sure that project management is in place, whether that’s an individual or a team on your side or theirs. When you deal with any type of developer, clarity is the most important thing; without it, they’ll go down rabbit holes. 

Make sure your product and goals are clearly defined. The project manager should always have a firm grasp of what the team is doing and the progress they’re making. As things come up, which they always do, you need to be able to trust the project manager. With strong project management in place, productivity will be high.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the President of Software Innovation Labs, Inc. We are located in Chicago, Illinois. We provide information technology services to our clients in the United States and abroad.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We hired 10Clouds for the purpose of extending our existing team to provide the best possible solution to our end customers. We had insufficient resources to complete a number of integration projects that we’d set for ourselves.

What were your goals for this project?

The aim of the project was to protect kids, and family and manage their usage of phone apps

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

10Clouds was recommended to us and they put forward a couple of developers from whom we have filled the gaps in our team. We had a chance to interview them both to ensure that they were the right fit both culturally and in terms of the technical skills that were needed.

Describe the project in detail.

The project concerned analysis and control of real-time data on how phones are being used. It enabled the user to limit when and how often a given app or a website can be accessed.

What was the team composition?

We had two python developers and one mobile developer from 10Clouds who were integrated with our internal team. Two of them worked on location in our client's office in the Bay Area, and the other remotely.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The developers successfully integrated our software with Telco in the US and Italy. The code was clean and bug-free, with the potential to scale it up.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Developers blended into the team and acted as one.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was particularly pleased with the smooth cooperation with 10Clouds, the fact that operations were easy to scale up and that we could add developers when needed. The technical team exceeded my expectations in terms of the quality of their work and their efficiency.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There was absolutely nothing to improve.

Feedback summary: 

The single programmer designated to the project delivered code free of bugs and errors. She saved the client time and resources, moving through workflows at a faster rate than expected. 10Clouds had a considerable background in simular developments prior to the engagement, making them a perfect fit.  

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the VP of sales at a software house called Ideamotive. We’re based in Poland and provide software development primarily for startups.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 10Clouds?

We were creating a mobile app for a big corporation. In order to get it right, we needed specific development talent and consultation.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They designated a developer to assist us in building a mobile app for a big telecommunications provider. It was a pretty complex project. In its completion, the app allows users to connect to telecommunications services without needing a physical SIM card. This creates an open avenue of communication between customers and the telecom company. 10Clouds worked in React Native to construct the app for both iOS and Android. 

What is the team composition?

10Clouds assigned one developer to our project. We communicated directly with them throughout.

How did you come to work with 10Clouds?

We’ve spent years building a local network of complementary solutions in our market. Long before this project began, we were connected with 10Clouds because we operate in the same market space.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $50,000 over the course of this project.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement started in August 2018, and we wrapped up in August 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The programmer provided clean code without errors and lags. Everything was delivered quickly without sacrificing quality. That made our staff’s job a lot easier. 

How did 10Clouds perform from a project management standpoint?

Everything went very smoothly. I couldn’t ask for better project management. Communicating directly with the programmer was easy.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They brought exceptional quality and speed to the table. Their developer breezed through tasks at a much faster rate than we expected. It was a huge time and code saver for our team.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Given the relatively small scope, there isn’t anything they could improve. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Flesh out your specific needs and communicate them. You’ll be heard, and 10Clouds will get it right.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CTO of a cybersecurity IT solutions provider, building solutions using the power of blockchain technology.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We needed an initial build out of our proofs of concept into MVCs, including building the foundation of an investment assurance platform (IAP), and the foundations of the first application built on the IAP. We had little resources available to us and turned to 10Clouds to enable us to rapidly develop the solutions.

What were your goals for this project?

The goals were to build out the first iteration of the IAP, integrate it with Ethereum technology, and also to build the first application to run on the IAP as both an API and a web app.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I had already had a good experience with 10Clouds at my previous company, so it was natural to choose them for this project. I knew they had the technical expertise to help us and would be able to build our solution quickly and professionally.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They built the IAP with C++ and Python scripts and built the API with Python Django and the web app with React. The aim was to make the concept a concrete demonstration and then build on it from there.

What was the team composition?

They provided three teams to work on each of the aspects of our project. One focused on blockchain (Ethereum DApps, C++, Python), one worked on the backend for the API (Python Django), and the third worked on the frontend (UI/UX, React.js). We worked with seven total resources, most of them full-time, including developers and managers. The teams were managed by a scrum master.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

The project quickly got us up to speed on our concept and helped us flesh out a lot of the initial concerns with the design. We had very little documentation when we started, and the great communication we had with all of the team members really helped solidify and expand on the concepts we were building.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project was managed very effectively and efficiently by their scrum master, who organized a lot of the product backlog. We communicated through Jira and Slack and held weekly update meetings on Hangouts.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their expertise is very strong, as well as their professionalism and ability to understand the job and work quickly.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, none that I can think of.
