AI based job scheduling solution

Our customer was one of the prominent logistics company based out of the USA. An optimal resource planning for a logistics company is crucial as they have to manage hundreds of containers, carrier trucks, courier vans, delivery routes, laborers etc. Our customer wanted a solution to optimize the efficiency of their resource allocation and job scheduling.

We designed an intelligent resource allocation algorithm

that would be able to consider different factors like the available capacity of a particular resource while mapping the consignment to the most ideal resource for the planning, routing, and scheduling of resources. We designed a system based on genetic algorithm, which has the capacity to select the resources judiciously, striking a balance between over-burdening and idle time. The algorithm is an ideal solution to combinatorial problems with multiple objectives. It has the flexibility to address complex issues, as there could be instances when the number of activities, resource types, and execution modes increases in a resource allocation problem. The genetic algorithm can be effectively used to minimize the costs that arise from over-allocation of resources, everyday resource fluctuations, and exceeding of project deadlines. We recognized that a system based on the Genetic algorithm is the ideal solution for optimization problems with constraints.

 

Land Registry on Blockchain

The project was to implement Dubai land department’s (DLD) land registry information in a decentralized blockchain network to ensure the immutability of the data as well as to improve the operations of land registry update of the DLD.

In the conventional system of land registry keeping, there are certain situations like the occurrence of a natural calamity or a dispute between different parties over

the ownership of a land, where the rightful owner could not be identified. Such issues have a big impact on construction projects as government and contractors wait for ownership issues to be resolved. Moreover, traditional land registry system is rife with corruption and inefficiencies. In dozens of cities across the developing world, land registries suffer from similar problems.

The solution incorporates many benefits of blockchain technology, such as the tamper-proof history of transactional records, so that no one can ever tamper with or forge a record of their own; and these records can be seen by any party with the permission, at any time. This will create a single source of truth of ownership status and history of a property. The buyer will be assured that the land being bought is the correct plot and that the seller is rightfully the owner, reducing the potential for disputes, as well as the costs and time involved, for any given transaction.

AI sales concierge - Etisalat

For Etisalat, we built an instore AI conversational tool to boost their in-store sales. AI conversational tools are interactive applications designed to automate communication tasks. In particular, it can successfully replace salesmen or offload a significant amount of the work from them.

In-store AI conversational tools turned out to perfectly fit in in-store sales as a customer support option. The solution

we built for our client in a Kiosk-based in-store conversational tool. Customers of the store can interact with the device to seek information about the products they are seeking for. The system delivers meaningful quick information to the customer which in turn increases the user experience for the customers. The system also has face recognition to identify the past purchase records of the customer so that it can recommend new offers and suggestions to the particular customer. 

The system is built with robust NLP (natural language processing) and NLU (natural language understanding) algorithms to provide life-like interactions to the user. It also has speech-to-text and text-to-speech engines so that the system can provide instant answers to many of the common questions customers may have when examining products). The system helps the management to retain and re-engage customers by sending personalized messages as well. 

CoinFactory - ICO platform

Coinfactory is the #1 ICO platform in the market, battle-tested with more than ten ICOs already. It has hosted one of the fastest ICO in the world - raised $22 million over 3 days. The platform helped its clients raise over $120 Million USD in total. It also supports the end to end customization so that your ICO platform would always look unique.

ICO platform affords you end-to-end control by giving you

unlimited access to the source code and by giving you the ability to host it in your own infrastructure. You can customize the ICO platform to suit your requirements and alter how it behaves. Yet another quality is that it can be easily integrated with your Wordpress website with a plugin and you don’t require much technical expertise to manage it.

 It can facilitate milestone based ICOs. Essentially, the funds raised would be distributed over various milestones only after the community approves it. We believe this model would renew faith in ICOs and you could raise money faster. This functionality can be enabled by the administrator of the ICO if it is deemed appropriate.

Feedback summary: 

Internal stakeholders commend the final product for its quality and design. While there were some initial delays, Accubits Technologies Inc has played a crucial role throughout the entire development lifecycle. Their commitment to understanding the product makes them a valuable partner.

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 director at a startup called FitVoo. We’ve designed a mobile app to assist professionals with building their brand within the well-being, sporting, and health and fitness industries.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Accubits Technologies Inc?

Accubits Technologies Inc has helped us develop a set of native iOS/Android apps at a reasonable price. They worked quickly over the course of a year to deliver a fully functional MVP.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Accubits Technologies Inc developed a mobile app that helps fitness professionals remain accountable by allowing them to cultivate their reputation on a consolidated platform. Professionals can advertise their services, highlight relevant qualifications, and manage their brand. There’s also a referral and rating component, where users can connect with professionals and write reviews about their experience. It’s a way of promoting more transparency within the health and wellness community so that people feel comfortable procuring services.

Accubits Technologies Inc’s team has been integral in every step of the development process. Initially, we presented them with our problem statement. The CEO then led discussions and requirements workshops to better understand our business challenge on a deeper level. Afterward, they helped scope out the high-level architecture of the solution, which involved creating the entire interaction map and system workflow along with all of the user journeys.

For the development phase, we provided them with preliminary wireframes, which their UX specialist used to develop their own prototype. It’s a set of native iOS/Android apps with a Google Firebase backend. We’re currently preparing to launch the app within the next month or so along with a marketing campaign.

What is the team composition?

We’ve worked with about six team members in total, including the CEO, a project manager, and developers. The core team consists of 3–4 resources, and we call in others as needed.

How did you come to work with Accubits Technologies Inc?

A colleague had worked on a similar project with Accubits Technologies Inc and referred us to them. He mentioned that they had a decent number of available developers and solid experience to boost.

Ultimately, we went with them because they were flexible with price and understood that this was a long-term engagement. Furthermore, the CEO was incredibly professional and assisted us every step of the way. During the initial discussions, it was clear that he’d taken the time to understand our problem deeply.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $40,000–$50,000 AUD (approximately $28,700–$35,900 USD) thus far.

What is the status of this engagement?

Their work started in August 2017 and is ongoing. We’re now at a part-time capacity, mostly because my business partner and I aren’t available to work on this project full-time. We plan to retain them for all future phases of development and actually have plans to migrate our backend into AWS, using APIs to integrate with the frontend apps.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I can’t speak highly enough of their work quality. Rather than taking our requirements and developing them, their team took the time to help us better understand and define our business problem. They even challenged our requirements when they felt necessary. As a result, the finished product reflects their efforts, and they’ve come up with an incredible set of apps. If there are any bugs, they’re quick to identify and resolve them within a few days turnaround.

How did Accubits Technologies Inc perform from a project management standpoint?

We faced some delays in the beginning as we got everything up and running to a proper cadence. This was mostly due to international barriers and conflicting timeframes since we were coordinating between Melbourne and India, but Accubits Technologies Inc made every effort to speed things up.

Since then, we’ve adopted an agile approach and discussed what the expectations were between us. They now work at a remarkable speed and have weekly releases. We coordinate the project through Slack, Google Hangouts, and WhatsApp.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I value their culture and attitude; they always take a hands-on approach and have been fully behind the project. This has made a huge difference for us, and we definitely plan to retain them for future work.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not that I can say. The experience has been great from start to finish.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Don’t just treat the team as a service provider; rather, involve them in understanding your requirements because they’re capable of being a strong technology partner.

Feedback summary: 

Their ability to understand business needs paired with their deep industry experience resulted in a bug-free product. Accubits Technologies communicates efficiently and structures their projects really well compared to others.

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 young entrepreneur coming from the banking industry. I started a fintech company specialized in digital payments from card programs and mobile payment solutions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Accubits Technologies?

Coming from the payment and fintech industry, I had a bunch of partners asking me to prepare an initial coin offering (ICO) for them. I didn’t have enough experience with ICOs, so I needed to find a partner that could help.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I have a business partnership with an association that promotes renewable energy, specifically solar panels. We already had a customer base, so the goal was to use my partner’s name to launch crypto money across the countries where they’d already deployed solar panels.

I asked Accubits Technologies to present their ICO platform to us in order for us to identify which business model would be best for deploying the cryptocurrency. We didn’t have any experience in this area, so we wanted to rely on a company that could help us better describe how we should deploy this token.

They prepared the tech infrastructure for our ICO, along with all the documentation, from the piggy bank to the tokenomics. They also built a demo platform that we used to show investors how to purchase tokens from our platform.

What is the team composition?

There were six people on the team, including a product owner that was fully dedicated to me.

How did you come to work with Accubits Technologies?

I met them in Dubai. I initially wanted to work with another company on the ICO project. I had a meeting with them, and one of their team members introduced me to Accubits Technologies’ CEO, which was surprising. That person told me transparently that Accubits had developed their cryptocurrency platform, and wanted me to go directly to the source of the work so I wouldn’t be charged twice.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $50,000–$200,000 on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in March 2018. The project is still ongoing. I’m also working with them on two other projects—one is a fintech company that issues prepaid cards for companies and individuals, and the other is a messenger.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I liked the fact that Accubits Technologies not only delivered what we asked for, but also made sure that they understood our business perfectly, and used their experience to improve our product. I haven’t found any bugs in the product.

I have another project in the pipelines for a Swiss cryptocurrency exchange, and I’ll give it to Accubits after the Pakistan team I hired releases the first version. I started this project before I knew Accubits, and it’s why I didn’t give it to them, but I really feel comfortable with them.

How did Accubits Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

They were professional in terms of communication and project management. They organized the work well, making sure to use a suitable communication platform. They knew that my team and I didn’t have experience with IT development, so we used Slack, which was not only easy to understand but also gave us the benefit of seeing the development progress on a daily basis. We really appreciated it, given that it’s hard to work remotely. We had different channels for customer questions and other topics.

I’ve worked with another development company in Vietnam. In comparison, I really liked how Accubits structured the development phases. We had weekly releases at the start, coupled with conference calls to discuss them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I really appreciate their dedication. They’re able to quickly understand what we want to achieve and they really have experience handling ICOs and development work in general. Their team has experience with various industries, specializing in blockchain and AI.

Are there any areas they could improve?

When the collaboration started, we noticed some language gaps during conference calls. Out of the six people working with us, we could only verbally communicate with two of them because of their lack of English proficiency. They communicated well in writing, though.

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 executive director and co-founder of IXFocus. We specialize in creating visitor and customer experiences for venues like malls, university campuses, and airports. We work across different sectors, especially within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) market, and have deployments across several verticals. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Accubits Technologies?

We needed to work with a development partner to build a scalable product around interactive digital wayfinding solutions. Specifically, we considered teams with experience creating dynamic routing algorithms. We eventually narrowed our search to Accubits Technologies.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’ve worked together on two different models. Sometimes, we hire specific resources to assist our in-house team. When we work on fixed-rate projects, our internal onsite resources handle all the business analysis and requirements. Once we clearly define a scope of work that’s easy to execute, Accubits Technologies handles everything from product development to testing and remote deployment support. Our first project was the most challenging since we had to learn each other’s processes.

Accubits Technologies builds products based on the exact requirements we send. They mostly work with OpenStack and use PHP, LAMP, Perl, and NumPy among a few other frameworks. Quite a few of our projects have centered around blockchain. Recently, Accubits Technologies has been developing customer and visitor experience solutions that include automated processes and AI. 

What is the team composition? 

Our typical projects include 4-5 developers from Accubits Technologies. For large-scale projects, they assign us a project manager, and we scale up to about eight developers. We also have an onsite project manager who works with these teams. 

How did you come to work with Accubits Technologies?

I'm from the town where Accubits is headquartered. Their name came up in my search for companies to work with from that region. When I met with their CEO a long time ago, I could tell they were passionate about what they do. Their mission seemed much more substantial than a typical service-oriented company. I mostly hired them based on their company culture and vision. Later on, I came to discover the extent of their capabilities during our actual collaboration. 

How much have you invested with them?

We've done quite a few projects together. The typical cost ranges from $150,000–$250,000. 

What is the status of this engagement?

This project started in March 2017 is still ongoing. We're looking forward to working with them on a few projects in the future. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

For assessment purposes, we typically look at the number of bugs per project. Over the period of our engagement, that number has dramatically decreased. They have substantial testing processes in place and are quite skilled at QA. Over the past three years, we’ve never had regrets about working with Accubits Technologies. We're quite comfortable using them as our development partner. They’re a flexible team that seems to understand our customers' needs and demands quite well. 

The extensive support Accubits Technologies provides makes our partnership work well time and time again. Being based in Dubai, our time zones and even work weeks are different. We have Fridays and Saturdays off, for example. They continued to support us even during their weekends, and have been especially accommodating for critical projects. 

How did Accubits Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

They have an effective escalation mechanism when it comes to client management. Typically, the project manager keeps track of technical milestones for the product. They respond quickly to our requests for technical escalations. We use Jira to organize the project and communicate with their team members through a Slack channel. I take the time to visit their office whenever I travel to the town where they are based.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They're always willing to take on a new challenge. Technology is never a barrier for them, even if it's something new to the market. Accubits Technologies has their own research and development facility, so at least one member of their team has usually been working with the latest technology. In this day and age, it's critical to work with someone at the forefront of innovation.

Are there any areas they could improve?

My recommendation would be to focus on building up more UI/UX experience capabilities. As our projects become more comprehensive, I’d prefer they include those services in the original scope rather than having to work with multiple teams. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

From my understanding, one of their key products is ClientFactory, a SalesForce platform for token generation. I've seen a lot of companies benefit from that tool. I’ve personally introduced Accubits Technologies to people from my network who are raising funds through an initial coin offering (ICO).  Working together made it much easier to set up their products. They’re the first team I’d think of to recommend for that type of work.

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 have a couple of small companies in the outdoor business. I’m an investor and I help during their initial phase.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Accubits?

We wanted to build a website, similar to Craigslist, for companies within the nature /outdoor sector. We were looking for a company that could give us good value for money.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built the MVP [minimum viable product] of the website. They built it from scratch and took care of the whole process. They used Node and did the design as well.

We decided on a couple of features that were important. We had good discussions with them, trying to understand which way to go and which features would add the most value after the initial ones were built. We first developed a simple prototype of the platform and tested it in the Swedish market. We discovered that this wasn’t the right way to approach the business. Since then, we’ve made a shift and are now taking a different approach.

What is the team composition?

I worked with one person from the UX/UI [user experience/user interface] department, but our main point of contact was the project manager. We had discussions with some of the developers.

How did you come to work with Accubits?

I found them on Elance. I put out an ad describing the project, then spoke with their CEO and I found him very professional. He had a good understanding of our business and was very helpful.

How much have you invested with them?

$10,000–$15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in April 2016 until April 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They did a good job. Everyone liked the webpage; it functioned well and it looked nice. All the features that we asked for worked . There’s always back and forth with iterations and you have to fix things. That comes with the territory. It tested out well.

The reason why we changed our business model wasn’t because of the website, but because of fundamentals in the business that weren’t there.

How did Accubits perform from a project management standpoint?

We had a very good collaboration and found them to be easy to work with. They did a very good job. The project manager was always available and helpful. When we had bigger issues, I reached out to the CEO and he was able to answer those bigger questions or issues very rapidly. We used Skype and email to communicate.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We got good value for money. They’re easy to work with. When they don’t know how to solve an issue, they get back to us and we’d have a discussion about it.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There are always minor things, but you need to take into consideration that you’re paying a lower price. My expectations were met. They delivered on what they promised.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It’s essential to have a very good understanding of what you want to build and communicate it in a very clear way. When the instructions aren’t well thought out, the output is generally not very good either.

The highly technical work is always delivered on time and within budget, even if there are overages. The work they produce goes above and beyond what is required.

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 founder and CEO of Chance River. We do IT projects, mostly blockchain, artificial intelligence linked to an app development, project management, and all that relates to that.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Accubits?

We needed knowledgeable people and to get them quickly at a good price.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They get the requirements from us and deliver the work according to our spec. Sometimes we explain things over the phone and sometimes we send them a document saying what we want. They suggest process improvements because they know the subject really well.

There have been multiple projects. We were making an ID platform and a user provisioning platform for a big client of ours. They did all the development work for that in a quick turnaround. They helped us make multi-signature wallets and smart contracts for our clients and distribute our apps. We also wanted to make a wagering app as a distributor app. This was done on Solidity. They did the whole thing, the frontend, the website, the apps, and published it. They’re building multi-signature wallets for multiple projects. There are many other things that are in scope. We’re in project discussions with our clients.

What is the team dynamic?

There are close to 35 people are on the team. We have project managers, and sometimes I do project management myself. For some of the clients, I’m personally involved. For some of the clients, we don’t have project managers; we get the requirements and get the work done because they don’t want to waste time and cost on project managers.

How did you come to work with Accubits?

A friend of mine suggested them. We gave them an initial project and they delivered. We gave them the next one and continued giving them projects. They have the knowledge of the subject, which is key for us.

How much have you invested with them?

We have invested $320,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in December 2016, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The quality of work is really good. They do a good job. They have a good attitude. They’re willing to work. They go over and above what we have specified. Their founder is really good because he keeps them on their toes. They delivered within budget. If they go above budget, they don’t charge us.

How did Accubits perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re responsive to our communication. Accubits employees work within their company, not our company. My clients are located across the U.S. I have my people at the client locations, and then we outsource to Accubits at their location. We communicate via phone and Skype. Phone is the best means of communication so we know what they’re talking about. It’s pretty technical. There are no language barriers.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have a really good attitude and have the technical knowledge we need. They get the work done. They always return my calls.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, they’re doing a good job. They have delivered all of our projects on time.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They know their field. They’ve got multiple clientele. I recommend them to my friends. All of my friends who have used them are happy.

Feedback summary: 

Though delivery was slightly delayed, they created a viable product with great potential for growth. Migration to the new platform was smooth. They excel at using in-depth analytics to meet challenges and propose new functions.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Tinggal is a virtual brand of budget hotels. We identify hotels that meet our minimum criteria, rebrand them as Tinggal properties, and then market them. I’m the CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Accubits?

We needed a strong technology partner to create a platform that would be scalable for us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our old platform was good but not scalable—many business requirements couldn’t be accommodated. We did full brainstorming sessions with their team and some of our marketing and business people. We created a high-level roadmap of what we wanted from a product perspective. They gave us suggestions from a UI design perspective and from a user experience. They also did mockups and industry share outs.  

They developed the backend system, which included the admin panels, the websites, and the mobile-optimized sites. When they created modules, we started migrating our existing activities onto the newer platform, which was fairly seamless.

When the entire platform was developed and delivered, they helped enhance it, introducing us to machine learning, how we can capitalize on all the data we have as a business, where the customers are coming in, if there are any particular cycles we’re seeing, etc. They did a great deal of analytics and started proposing newer functionalities that could provide enormous value.

They are now creating a machine-learning platform for us, which captures many variables online, such as the past data of a specific hotel and what the trends are. We can then predict what the pricing would be at a certain point. It’s basically a revenue optimizer or a price prediction tool, which uses machine learning and big data at the backend.

What is the team dynamic?

The team has fluctuated because this is an ongoing process. When we were developing the platform, the focus was more on backend developers, architects, QAs, and design. At the peak, we had 8–9 people directly involved. Everyone also has many shared responsibilities. QA is primarily a shared pool of resources, and so is user experience and design. As we've moved onto machine learning, the number of people has reduced, as it’s not as labor intensive as software development.

How did you come to work with Accubits?

We needed a strong technology partner that could think as a business, not as a software development house, and particularly one that had many resources.

How much have you invested with them?

$30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in April last year, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Even though the project took a little longer due to changing requirements, they've performed well. They've created a minimum viable product that can expand into a full-blown one. It's a very modernized solution and can be scaled up according to the business need. Unused aspects can be removed without impacting other pieces within the platform.

Jithin [CEO/Co-Founder, Accubits] and a colleague took the time to understand the business first. They also do total analyses of the competitive landscape, including new things coming in from a travel perspective. This is valuable for us as a startup because we don’t have our own in-house development teams.

How did Accubits perform from a project management standpoint?

We use a project management tool and have a dedicated project manager, who also has a strong technical background. He can manage the task force, allocate resources, and do quick fixes himself.

They’re extremely approachable, responsive, and proactive. They reach out and give you multiple touchpoints. There are weekly catchups and daily standup calls. The communication is ongoing and continuous, which I like. We do face-to-face interactions once a quarter.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I like having a partner that will deep dive into the industry to propose the best solution that can be scaled. Their resources are pretty up to date, based on new technology. They have a great, high-energy team. They sit with you to create that product roadmap. They also challenge your assumptions—not like a typical vendor, who will just take a job and execute it. They think through their challenge, and once they understand, they get started.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They're scaling up fast, which brings its own challenges of growing the teams at the same pace. But that’s something all growing companies face.

Feedback summary: 

Accubits Technologies Inc. offers a full team for anything related to IT and responsive support for fixing issues. They provide a wealth of expertise for both startups and enterprise customers and their internal project managers work well with in-house staff.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our company provides enterprise solutions to startups and small-to-medium businesses in Hong Kong. We build websites and software, provide IT support, and handle advanced tech projects like augmented reality.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Accubits?

We were looking for a technical development partner for multiple projects. Our customers have different marketing styles.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’ve provided technical consultants and developers for our products and solutions. The work includes creating banners for different campaigns, UI/UX [user interface/user experience design], and backend programming. They’ve also built an e-commerce website for a startup travel agency similar to Airbnb. Aside from website analytics, they’ve also done machine learning development for face- and image-recognition systems.

What is the team dynamic?

We’ve worked with 5–6 people from their team, depending on the skills needed. Smaller projects would include 2–3 people.

How did you come to work with Accubits?

We first got in touch with them 3 years ago. I had a meeting with their CEO and discussed potential projects on which we could work together.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost of their work has been $40,000—$50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

So far, they’ve been involved in multiple projects, with the first one starting in March 2017. A few larger projects started in June, which are still ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They provide very good support for fixing issues, with a full team for anything relating to IT.

How did Accubits perform from a project management standpoint?

I took the role of project manager for larger projects, while the smaller ones were handled by my colleagues, who collaborated with the Accubits team. They have internal project managers for each of the teams, but our own staff handled communication as well.

They are our closest partner in the region, and we communicate frequently. We’ve met in person, and their CEO has become my friend. They visited us most recently in July.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Accubits is not limited to a single, specialized area; they have full-spectrum capabilities.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Accubits could offer more consistency in terms of training and quality since the experience has varied across different project managers and designers from their team. The UI [user interface] standards in my region are a bit different from Western ones, so it took longer for them to understand our customers’ preferences.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

They provide full services for startups looking to build e-commerce websites, enterprise customers working with backend analytics, etc.
