The Review
Feedback summary: 

They can realize the requirements of nearly any project, large or small. With a deep well of knowledge, effective project management, and articulate communication they deliver excellent products at an affordable cost. Abbacus is a great resource for outsourcing or full-service development.

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 technical director of a web development company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Abbacus Technologies?

We had some projects that required PHP web development and wanted to outsource that work to a team with PHP expertise.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’ve worked on 15-20 projects together since first collaborating. Some of our clients have annual contests and we use Abbacus to develop their websites. At times that requires redeveloping an entire contest site from year-to-year.

A high-profile project they took on for us was the Canadian Automobile Association’s (CAA) Worst Roads Campaign, which is an annual national contest. Abbacus developed the whole site from scratch, despite frequent and complex changes made to its scope. It’s a PHP framework with top-level JavaScript functionalities to ensure all site features work properly.

What is the team dynamic?

Beyond the project manager, I’m not sure how many people are assigned to each project. The company is fairly large and utilizes people with the required expertise as needed. They have specialists in JavaScript and CSS, responsive design, databases, UX design, and Drupal.

How did you come to work with Abbacus Technologies?

We researched potential partners online and interviewed several firms. Abbacus came across as professional and articulate. Initially, they stood out because they had a project coordinator close by that helped us communicate with the full team in India. However, we now communicate directly with the company in India.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $50,000–$60,000 over the course of the relationship.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in December 2015, and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The “Worst Roads” site was great because it’s a national campaign. The contest gets covered in the paper and on the news so getting the project done correctly was essential to the future growth of our business. Not only because it was for one of our biggest clients, but it was vulnerable public scrutiny. The quality of work they delivered with that project has not gone unnoticed.

How did Abbacus Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

I’ll send them a scope of work document and then have a meeting to discuss details or anything that’s not clear. They’re very responsive and update us on a regular basis as the project progresses. Their project manager does a good job of organizing their team. Communication is done through email and Skype in addition to sending files back and forth.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have a diverse array of experiences and expertise that have proved invaluable. We ask them if they can complete a project and they either do it or find someone who can. They are also great at handling rapid changes of project requirements as exemplified by the success of the CAA website.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The time difference can be an issue depending on how urgent things are. It’d be great if they had an overnight manager in addition to the regular project manager.

Feedback summary: 

Technical skills and uncompromising responsiveness are major strengths. The ability to tap into a global resource pool also bring advantages when it comes to project delivery.

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 am the co-founder of and project manager at a tech startup focused on product databases.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Abacus Technologies?

Like most early stage tech companies, we have limitations internal limitations to overcome. In this case, database developers were needed who had previous experience with inventory and supply chain management.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Abacus first built an online tracking tool for personal fitness and nutrition, but for another company. The solution was similar to devices like FitBit. Users could log into the platform to document health related metrics, which would then be analyzed for retroactive and personalized suggestions. For example, tracking daily exercise and food consumption will help inform long-term fitness goals.

Their current work involves building a database structure and its entire backend. React and Javascript are being used to render the end product responsive. This is important because it means both the mobile and web versions are written using identical code. In other words, any changes made in the future could be done to both versions at the same time. Increased efficiency is the result.

What is the team dynamic?

The fitness project demanded 5–6 web developers, but I primarily worked with the sales and project manager. The current project is still ironing out details but it could eclipse fifteen developers.

How did you come to work with Abacus Technologies?

I worked extensively with Vish Patel [CEO, Abacus Technologies] while at another company. Those positive experiences informed the decision to approach them for another project.

How much have you invested with them?

The previous project was between $15,000-$20,000 and the current is between $250,000–$300,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The fitness app was completed between September 2014 and May 2015, and the newer work remains ongoing,

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Beta tests from a sample of >1000 users of the fitness site were routinely satisfactory, marking a 3–3.5/5. It is too early to measure the impact at my current company.

How did Abacus Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project manager was very accessible, always ensuring complete availability in a variety of different ways (video call, phone, email, etc.). Because of the broader scope of the current backend development, we will be using Basecamp going forward.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The international presence they maintain is impressive. Despite the fact that they’re based in India, they have good exposure and working relationships in both Europe and the United States. The team itself is both flexible and dynamic, and more than capable of tackling any challenge given to them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Bringing crystal clear requirements and expectations to the beginning of any project is very important.. For example, supplying a white paper, a development guide, or a visual roadmap will be invaluable when it comes to delivering the final product.
