BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are the most comprehensive rock climbing gear website. Founded in 2008 we aim to make finding, comparing, and buying gear easy. I am the founder and CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire ADCI Solutions?

We initially hired ADCI Solutions for a large project that had been semi-completed by another company. It was a lot of database work, taking retailer datafeeds and integrating them into our platform. We were so impressed we kept ADCI on for regular contract work.

What were your goals for this project?

We have had many projects with different goals. Overall, the underlying goals are always to deliver a Drupal-based solution that will be future-focused, cost-effective, and a solution to the problem at hand. We fully expect all solutions to be done in the proper 'Drupal Way'.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I initially found ADCI Solutions via Upwork. I had a written and spoken interview where they were ultimately the chosen candidate. During the interview, some questions were specifically designed to ensure a high level of detail, as well as an open-ness to discuss solutions I might not see (versus just doing what I say). I wanted somebody who felt comfortable to speak their mind and share their expertise.

My main goals were to hire somebody that would be efficient and experienced in Drupal, and who could communicate well. Another big factor for me narrowing down the candidates was how the company would give back to the community.

I only interviewed agencies/developers that had contributed to Drupal modules and/or showed other ways they were involved in the Drupal community. ADCI checked all the boxes and gave me the most confidence that they could understand and solve my complex problems.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We have now worked on many projects together. Often, I will give broad requirements if looking for an estimate or detailed requirements once we've decided to put something in the queue.

ADCI always asks great clarifying questions and brings up suggestions/ideas/ possible problems far ahead of time so we can sort them through. ADCI is very responsive and agile.

What was the team composition?

I mostly work with one dev, but I am happy knowing he has other resources at ADCI that he can call on. Sometimes other dev's test, or are able to be on-call when my dev is on vacation.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

ADCI is our main developer (contractor). We are a very small startup team, and we now outsource all our Drupal/web tasks to ADCI.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

ADCI's project management is impressive. Any delays (which are quire rare) are always written clearly. Everybody we have interacted with has used perfect English. We mostly communicate through Asana for tasks (and use Slack). The time difference is noticed (normal business hours, Russia timezone), but it is not a hindrance.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I am most impressed by the professionalism in terms of the speed and thoroughness in which tasks are done and the manner in which it's all communicated. I have great confidence and trust in the team at ADCI.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I struggle to think of a way ADCI could improve. Anything I could list here would be purely selfish and not something that is worth changing for a "slight preference" of ours.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Customer software development company founded in 2006. I'm a co-founder of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire ADCI Solutions?

One of our existing clients had an urgent request to be new features in the existing React application. All our inhouse developers were all busy with other projects. So we reached out to ADCI solutions for help.

What were your goals for this project?

Our main goal was to get help from a professional React developer immediately as it was an urgent project. It was equally important that the developer would understand the project specifics fast and could keep a good pace to complete the project before the deadline. Last but not least, the price had to be reasonable as we were constrained by the project budget.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I knew Alex and his ADCI team before and I was pretty confident in them. They also always provide a good price.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They build a few new features in the existing React application, added a couple of new landing pages and fixes some existing bugs along the way.

What was the team composition?

From the ADCI side, it was a could of React developers (one of them acted as a project manager as well) and from time to time one extra front-end developer chimed in. From our side, it was me and our project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They built a few new features and landing pages in the existing React application, fixing some existing bugs along the way.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

One of the developers from ADCI side has acted as a project manager as well. We had an efficient communication with him over email and skype. He was the primary point of contact and then he managed 2 other developers behind the scenes. It worked out great.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We were really impressed with the turnaround time. Thanks to ADCI we delivered the project on time. Largely that's because of their React expertise and great collaboration skills.

Are there any areas for improvement?

It was a short project, it lasted only a month. I'm happy that I got help from Alex and his team, even though I had a few other teams to choose from.

Feedback summary: 

ADCI Solutions’ reliability and communication make for an effortless collaboration. They are highly skilled and efficient, often resolving issues within a day. ADCI’s CEO is approachable and responsive, which has added value to the engagement.  

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 small security startup. Our company is developing devices like USB keys for user authentication and encryption.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ADCI Solutions?

Our challenge was finding a webmaster for our Drupal-based website. We needed someone to take care of errors, module updates, and continuous improvements.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

ADCI Solutions has provided support, maintenance, and development for our Drupal website, which is primarily for information purposes. The most complex part of the site is a section that can be filtered based on several criteria, allowing users to search it more conveniently.  

 What is the team composition?

Most of the time, there’s been one developer assigned to our project. That person happens to change every year, so we’re working with the third developer from ADCI Solutions. It’s convenient to have one main point of contact.

 How did you come to work with ADCI Solutions?

I found them on the web, where I saw a presentation at a Drupal conference that featured a module ADCI Solutions had developed. They seemed competent and had a reasonable price structure for those skills. 

 How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent less than $50,000 on their services.

 What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with ADCI Solutions in 2016, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I can only answer generally, but ADCI Solutions has improved our online visibility without me needing to bother about it. Since they take care of my website, I can focus on the actual business of my company.

 How did ADCI Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re responsive, usually getting back to me and fixing problems within a day. Their CEO is responsive as well—he seems to work 24 hours a day to take care of everything. If I ever needed to escalate something, I’d feel comfortable reaching out to him.

I issue tickets over Basecamp and use it for general communication. In most cases, they solve issues independently, without much communication required.

 What did you find most impressive about them?

I’m impressed with their responsiveness and independence in solving issues. I have nothing to complain about, which is why we’re still working together. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of any recommendations right now.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

I don’t think there are any obstacles future clients need to be aware of. I think it’s important to use ticket systems. The rest is straightforward.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I work as the functional manager for an international transport company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire ADCI Solutions?

We have a common communication platform developed with Drupal. It has more than a hundred spaces where our users can share their projects, documents, events, and workflow change requests. It became quite complex due to the multiple permissions required.

What were your goals for this project?

Our last developers lacked the necessary expertize, so we needed to fix multiple issues. We also wanted to update the server, PHP, database, and Drupal cases, as well as to improve the usability.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We chose them due to their expertize and competitive price. They work heavily in the Drupal platform and some examples of their past work helped us to decide to move forward.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Currently, they are solving our general issues and implementing the required updates. In a planned second phase, usability improvements will take place, together with the normal maintenance of the platform.

What was the team composition?

We work with their CEO for general matters. We also work with one project manager and two developers—a third if needed. This team fits our needs and hasn’t changed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They created the solution and then clearly demonstrated to us, using various tools, exactly how the platform will improve after their updates. For example, its speed will increase by a factor of 1.5. Due to their competitive rate, the cost of it has actually decreased for us too.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

As we expected, ADCI is performing well. The response time is impressive, and they’re quite fast at solving any issue we give them. We use Skype for communication and Basecamp for the issues. The time difference between our teams is four hours, but we don’t find it problematic due to their good response time.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They have a very strong knowledge of Drupal. All their interactions with me are professional, which makes the job quite enjoyable. Their quality-price ratio is also impressive.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Everything is good so far. After we complete the fixes and updates, I would like to see how good their advice is, in terms of the improvements to the tool.

Feedback summary: 

ADCI has a proven track record of consistency and responsiveness. Their developers are talented, driven, and dedicated to customer satisfaction. 

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

BACKGROUND

Please introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a junior producer and support manager at a boutique digital agency with about 8–10 people. We have a mixed team with a variety of specialties.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenges were you trying to address with ADCI?

The first time we contracted ADCI was because we were overwhelmed with project work. There were a lot of competing priorities. We didn’t have the manpower to finish everything we had on our plates without causing unreasonable delays.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

At first, ADCI helped us with bug fixes and other maintenance work. Their support lets our developers focus exclusively on newer client solutions instead of constantly having to change gears. ADCI's project team eventually proved that they could handle more complex challenges. That's when we decided to have them help us with other, more important project work. 

We now have them developing two separate websites. One is being custom coded with HTML5 and the other is being built on Drupal. Both websites are purely informational. The only required integrations are with MailChimp, Facebook, and Instagram. 

What is the team dynamic?

Dmitry is our primary support contact and Vlad is our project manager. The wider team of 2–5 people has changed depending on the situation. 

How did you come to work with ADCI Solutions?

I wasn't responsible for the hiring process. It was our managing director who brought them onboard. If I recall correctly, she had found them online doing her own research. They received demo work and based on that outcome, we decided to enter into a longer-term engagement. 

How long is this engagement?

We originally hired them for maintenance and support back in November [2016] but the more meaningful project work only began a few months ago. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What can you share that would illustrate the success of working together?

The turnaround time for deliverables and bug fixes was always faster than expected, especially compared to some of the other outsourcing companies we've used previously. Unlike the vendor that we used immediately before them, ADCI actually takes the time to listen to us and answer our questions in terms we can understand. More importantly, when they fix something or propose a solution to a problem we're facing, it's always permanent; whereas with our other vendors, the things would never really be solved. 

How is your engagement supervised?

We used JIRA with them. Basecamp was our original tool but once we began including them in more important work, we moved to JIRA. That was an excellent decision because now we have more visibility into our workflow and how things are progressing. They've been more than happy to work openly with us, which wasn't necessarily expected because such close collaboration and transparency can be a point of argument for other vendors. 

What do you consider most impressive about ADCI Solutions?

They have extremely talented people on their team; you can tell they really invest a lot in everyone they hire. Having worked pretty closely with them, I can tell they love what they do and that passion definitely translated into better work. Another major strength is their expertise in Drupal, which is a big factor for us since several client projects involve Drupal sites. 

Lastly, they're spot on with their estimations, which is one of the most difficult things to do consistently well. The ranges they've given us have always been realistic.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

GoIntro is a technology that we license to universities, allowing them to host their career fairs online.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ADCI Solutions?

We have our own developers, but we needed some support with the event interface just to get it delivered on time. That’s the part of the system which allows students and employers to connect through our gamified environment. We also gave them all the theme and style work scopes for the whole project. We outsourced part of the project to them.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They helped us fix some things on our old website. They redesigned some of the pages where students go to find jobs in the tech sector. More recently, they’ve been helping design a tool from concept to completion, which is an online career fair portal which we licensed to colleges and universities.

We worked with three of their developers. Because we worked with them before in the previous project to create a job site, I asked for specific developers who were keen to work with us. We put together the work scopes for them. We requested one of the backend developers who was particularly good. When we go into the frontend, we requested the frontend developers as well. I served as project manager.

How did you come to work with ADCI Solutions?

We use Drupal, so we’re looking for a Drupal specialist agency. I had a look at agencies that had good reviews online, and I spoke with a lot of them. Our CTO and I were speaking with other two other development agencies and ADCI. He was quite impressed with their proposition and had them undertake some of the work scope. We got them to perform a small work scope for us. They did it to a good standard for that time, so we used them ever since.

After the second project, we did speak to a few agencies and got quotes, but we knew we want to use them again anyway. If we got quotes that were ridiculously cheaper and the people seemed just as competent, we may have considered the switch. But because they did the first project well and the quote was reasonable, we stuck with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

The first project started about September and finished October or November. For this newer, bigger project, we started working with them March or April. This phase of the project should be finished over the next couple of weeks. Once I finish this project, we’re going to have lots of additional smaller projects off the back of this for clients that we have. We’ll definitely consider working with them for work scopes that we can’t handle ourselves since time is of the essence on our end. We just need more hands for a short period of time.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Their value, compared to other agencies I’ve worked with, is that they’re good in that their price and time estimations are fairly accurate. For any fixed-priced project, they were always happy to fix any bugs that occurred. All in all, the project has gone well.

How did ADCI Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

Their communications are excellent. They were very responsive. It was easy to get insight into what they were doing and how long things were going to take. I felt like they were on top of things. They have their own project management tool, but we tended to use Trello and Slack, which works well.

What did you find most impressive about ADCI Solutions?

They’re straightforward, easy to work with, and pretty honest. They have good developers working with them. Overall, it’s a reliable agency.

Are there any areas ADCI Solutions could improve?

No. Nothing out of the ordinary.

We do frontend and backend portals for large insurance companies, and there are serious security concerns with that type of software, which is partly why we started using Drupal. That type of functionality involves building workflow processes and business requirements into portals. When it’s delivered to the insurance company, they have tools to process their applications better. One typical application for us in the insurance world involves 4 large, publicly held companies. We’re doing accounting across those 4 companies through a single portal, which isn’t typical for the Drupal environment.

We don’t just do normal, core content-management system stuff. Instead, we extend the functionality quite a bit. ADCI has done a lot of custom coding for us, as well as design work when needed. Most of what we do starts in Drupal, but we’ve moved into decoupling Drupal now, using it as a backend service. ADCI also helps us with JavaScript frontend stuff.

Right now, I do 100% of my programming with ADCI. They offer mobile app development, but we’ve decided to wait on that until our product is more stable.

How did you come to work with ADCI?

When we decided to move to Drupal, I looked online for reasonably priced companies with experience. ADCI has really done a great job. I’ve been doing this for 15 years, and I’ve worked with a number of overseas companies. I really couldn’t be happier with ADCI. I’ve done a lot of business with them over the last 8 years.

How much have you invested with ADCI?

Annual expenses for my projects are over $500,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2009, and our relationship is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

I’m satisfied with ADCI’s performance so far, and I believe their work has helped my company move forward and be successful. I’m not looking for other providers because I’m very happy with ADCI.

What did you find most impressive about ADCI?

They’re easy to work with and very responsive. I’m 100% satisfied with their efforts. I have a lot of experience working with overseas companies. Once you find someone you’re happy with, there’s no reason to change. They’re just a great team.

Are there any areas ADCI could improve?

We work in a pretty high-production environment. It’s an engine that goes all the time. The work is stabilized, and we’re happy with what we have.

Do you have any advice or suggestions for potential clients?

Having someone who speaks Russian on your team would be wise. Communication is always a challenge. It’s the most critical factor in dealing with overseas companies in general, and ADCI is no exception. If you can communicate your needs properly, they’ll produce it properly. That’s the key to success. I suggest communicating with graphics instead of words. A lot of people spend considerable time and effort on functional design specifications. They write multi-page, paragraph forms what they think the software should do. It’s actually easier across languages to communicate in pictures.

Feedback summary: 

The enhanced product now includes more robust coding and reliable quality, thanks to ADCI Solutions’ existing proficiencies and eagerness to develop their skills even further. Their responsiveness, reasonable pricing, and ability to exceed expectations earned top marks across the board.

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 vice president of development at Measureful. We do social network analytics for Google Ads and all sorts of different advertising campaign platforms. We put those into easy-to-read reports that get sent via email on a set schedule. For example, you can define your reports as Google Analytics and Facebook Ads, and you want that report emailed to you every Monday with a period-over-period report. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ADCI Solutions?

I had great success working with ADCI on a previous project called SoPops. I knew that the new project was a little bit out of their expertise area. (They are experts in Drupal, and the new project is a Ruby on Rails project.) Due to my success with them on the last project, I contacted ADCI’s CEO Alex and asked if the team would be willing to take on a Ruby project. He managed to find a developer who could handle Ruby and hooked me up with him. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’d adopted a product that was already established, but we wanted to add new features and data resources. This legacy product was an acquisition for us. For a short term, we acquired the engineering resources that were involved, but we quickly decided that we wanted to move away from those resources.

When we acquired Measureful, there were only 3 data sources. Since then, we've tripled that. For each of the pre-existing data sources, we added additional data metrics to enable additional metrics reporting for the 3 that already existed. We've also added lots of features for configuring reports.

I did have a hand in putting the ADCI team together. One resource was all that we needed, and I worked very closely with that resource. I acted as the project manager myself.

ADCI has done 2 projects for me now. I definitely would consider them for future projects, whether they were Drupal-based or on some other platform.

How did you come to work with ADCI Solutions?

The first project that we did with ADCI was in Drupal. They were certified Drupal partners, which was a major reason why we went along with them. I really liked the quality of work that they delivered. I went through a few developers on that project, but every developer seemed to be of the highest quality. They’re every bit as good as I could get here in the United States. They've gained a lot of respect from me for their ability to output good code.

How much have you invested with ADCI Solutions?

The total, just on Measureful, is probably $70,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We spent close to a year and a half on the first project and at least a year on the second project until recently. I wasn't able to continue with the Measureful product at this time. We may be able to revive it later, but for now, it's had to take a back seat. We've been working on Measureful since around early 2016, maybe even late 2015. I last communicated with them about 2 or 3 weeks ago. Our involvement with them is concluded, but as soon as we're able, I plan on restarting. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Even though we haven't been able to continue on Measureful, that has nothing to do with ADCI; it's more due to a concern that the product hasn't been taken to market effectively. My hope is that once we get some marketing going on behind Measureful and more customers on board, we will be able to resume development with ADCI.

I empower people to make decisions as much as possible, so I had no intention of micromanaging them. That said, I have worked with other outsourced agencies and engineers in India and China. They are, by far, the most responsive in communication and have the best quality output that I've seen. ADCI shines above all of the providers I've dealt with in the past. Typically, outsourced developers give poorly written code, but I've been impressed with the quality of the code that ADCI put out.

How did ADCI Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

I try to maintain a personal relationship with developers. It's a little different. Usually, there's a project manager at ADCI that handles that communication, but I wanted to be very hands-on. It does mean that I end up working a graveyard schedule, but it was worth it for me to be able to have that personal contact. Often, the developer and I would be discussing features over Skype, and I liked that communication. Again, that's a place where they have performed better than other outsourced agencies. Documentation was all over the place. We've used Google Docs, wikis, and bug-tracking databases, but most of our day-to-day communication was via Skype.

Are there any areas ADCI Solutions could improve?

Nothing really comes to mind. I suppose that they've done really well in just about every situation that I can think of. Usually, any lack of communication was on my part, not theirs. I would say that if there are places to make improvements, it would be on my end.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with ADCI Solutions?

First off, beware outsourcing in general. Outsourcing is very tricky to do right. Perform regular code reviews. Don't just take code and run it; you actually have to review. That's not specific to ADCI; it pertains to anybody you're outsourcing with. Once you're comfortable with the code that they're putting out, you can lighten up a little bit. Having been around the block, I would say that review the quality of the code is the biggest thing. They're not serving me dinner; they're writing me a piece of software, and that code has to be the highest quality in order for the product to be high-quality.

  • 5.0 Scheduling
    ON TIME / DEADLINES
    I may be a little different than other clients since I’m managing the project. I've never had a complaint with their ability to meet my expectations and, in most cases, exceed them. If I estimate a project will take 40 hours, it’s usually done sooner.
  • 5.0 Cost
    Value / within estimates
    Let's face it: price is very important. That's why I can't hire a developer near me since they all want $125 an hour. At $25 an hour, I can hire 5 developers at ADCI for the price of a developer here in Oregon.

Feedback summary: 

The finished site has already attracted nearly 111,000 visitors and significantly increased paid therapist listings. ADCI’s specialized technical skills, quick problem-solving, and thoughtful customer service catalyzed this long-term business engagement.

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 run an online therapist directory where people who are looking for either marriage counselors or individual counselors can find therapists that are close to them and sort and narrow down the list, based on that individual’s or couple’s needs so that they can find the right therapist. I’m the founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenges were you trying to address with ADCI?

The original website was partially built by another developer. Unfortunately, it was a train wreck at the time. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I gave ADCI specifications including what needed to be fixed and what the overall vision for the project was because, at the time, it was also incomplete. Then, through a collaborative process, we developed the website.

They took what I had and worked with it, repairing what needed to be repaired and continuing the development from there. There was an extensive debugging process because of the previous developer.

They created the homepage and landing page. The most spectacular thing that they developed was the search function. If you click the “search for a therapist” button, that entire Solr/Drupal collaboration is quite spectacular, and they did all that.

There were at least four or five people from ADCI who worked on this project. We interacted on a regular basis—pretty much their Monday through Friday. We have had three project leads assigned to our account. There's one person, Evgeny [Web Developer, ADCI], who oversees the whole thing; he is just fantastic.

How did you come to work with ADCI?

I was having some difficulties with my previous developer. I did an online search for Drupal experts and found several through a Drupal directory. I contacted some of them and got responses from a handful. I chose Alex's [CEO, ADCI] group because of their general expertise in Drupal and Solr, ability to use maps to display data, overall responsiveness, and customer service.

How much have you invested with ADCI?

I have spent around $30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

It’s been an enormous project. We have been working together for about four years now. The project finished about eight months ago, but there have been some tweaks that I have needed along the way for things I did not anticipate. I have retained them to make those changes and to continue with website updates and security issues. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

I'm not exactly sure how to quantify that. The biggest success is that the website project would not exist at all were it not for them. I wouldn't have this asset because I don't know where I would have turned. The old version didn’t launch until ACDI came along. My previous developer bailed on me. It launched on April 21. Since that time, I’ve had 110,850 users, and 87,770 of them have been new users.

I've had plenty of therapists who have signed up after finding the site on the internet and becoming members. They're paying for it, so that’s definitely an endorsement.

The only other supplier was the one that I had before, and ACDI is very responsive. I've had a handful of what I would call crises over the years: things broke while the website is live, and I’m trying to promote it at the same time. As the owner, I feel like each issue needs to be fixed now. I’ve been able to see on Google Analytics that three, four, and sometimes as many as five developers are on the site actively looking at what's going on and addressing any problem.

How did ADCI perform from a project management standpoint?

Basecamp is what we used to communicate. I believe that it does translation, so I get their Russian communications in English, and they get mine in Russian, unless their English is really quite good.

What did you find most impressive about ADCI?

At this point, these are my guys. I'm not really shopping around for anyone else. I’m very happy with them, and I'm not exactly the easiest person to please.

Several completed projects have earned industry awards, thanks to ADCI Solution’s willingness to expand their competencies and satisfy complex requirements. The team’s consistency and professionalism are defining traits.

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 founder and technical director of a Drupal development agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ADCI Solutions?

We needed additional resources who were skilled with Drupal. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

ADCI Solutions did both consulting and technical work on ongoing projects for external clients as well as some internal work. It’s exclusively in Drupal. Over the years, the number of resources we use has fluctuated from one or two all the way up to 7–8 resources. In addition to Drupal developers, we use one of their illustrators from time to time. We do the project management in-house.

How did you come to work with ADCI Solutions?

We found them years ago on Drupal.org. We initially worked with another company in a similar role; however, ADCI was stronger in the field. They were very fair in their completion time, quality of work, and communication. I’ve enjoyed working with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in 2011, and the relationship is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

We’ve had several award-winning projects. ADCI Solutions had challenging projects that definitely pushed their level of competencies to the edge with very unique and complex web problems. They always put on their thinking cap and create an innovative solution.

How did ADCI Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

We’ve used Basecamp over the years for communication, as well as Skype and occasional phone calls.

What did you find most impressive about ADCI Solutions?

We’ve had our ups and downs, but we’d get that with anyone over the span of a relationship. Their level of competency is greater than other partners with whom we’ve worked. They’re very respectful in their communication. Everyone there shows up and puts forth an honest day’s work, and they enjoy what they do.

Are there any areas ADCI Solutions could improve?

They are consistent, but it’s a matter of making their lows a little better and quality control. I think they’re on the right path. Also, there have been improvements in project management software that we could utilize.
