Feedback summary: 

While the project remains under development, stakeholders have seen vast improvements with each demo. Afterlogic.Works experience allows them to identify solutions constantly even if the problem hadn't shown itself yet. As of now, they are on track to deliver an excellent product for the consumers.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder of a digital marketing startup looking to build a platform for our customers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Afterlogic.Works, and what were your goals?

We hired Afterlogic to assist us with developing the software we need to track the ROI of each campaign. Afterlogic was responsible for implementing designs, setting up the data infrastructure and trouble shooting and testing each version of the app. Our goal is create a MVP ready for our customers to use.

SOLUTION

How did you select Afterlogic.Works and what were the deciding factors?

We found them through Clutch actually! As a startup, budgeting is always something to consider. We read a few reviews and visited their site, and reached out to them. After talking with them, we found that their work ethics really resonated with us and that they had reasonable pricing. Meanwhile, they are very responsive and effective in coming up with solutions, so the price to performance ratio is very good.

Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and technologies used.

The project is very robust with a variety of features. The team works on IOS/Android and a responsive desktop versions. The team was able to contribute to many challenges that we faced. Primarily the team uses JavaScript, GoogleCloud, relational database to list a few. Afterlogic works on the project in two-week sprints. We find this format very effective, as we are able to consistently see where the project is at and what needs to be done differently. There is the bad surprise that comes with a project "blackhole," where you are presented with the final outcome with no room for inputs leading up to it. We find this often the source of client disappointment, and that is exactly what Afterlogic does not do. They keep us in the loop, so we always know what's going on.

How many people from the vendor's team worked with you, and what were their positions?

We mainly worked with one project manager from Afterlogic, and he would coordinate with the rest of their team while we coordinated with ours. At the end of every sprint (every 2 weeks), our PM would show a demo of what they've accomplished during that sprint to our team, and from there we will plan out together what to work on during the next sprint. We find this channel of communicating quite effective and organized. Meanwhile, our PM would send us an update everyday and we message each other all the time if anything changes. We are constantly bouncing ideas off our PM and he is effective in helping us evaluate those ideas and implementing the ones that work.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any measurable outcomes of the project or general feedback about the deliverables?

At this stage the project is still ongoing, so the product itself is not ready for launch yet. That being said, we've been seeing results during every demo, and Afterlogic was a big help in connecting our app to various external APIs we needed to work with, so that would be a measurable deliverable that was very helpful for us. We are confident about the current work schedule and that before long, we will have a product that our customers will be satisfied with.

Describe their project management style, including communication tools and timelines.

Our PM always records everything that we need him to do on Trello, and we use Slack to communicate daily, and Google Hangout/Zoom to do our demo meetings (or any other meetings that comes up along the way). The team on our end would summarize minutes at the end of each demo meeting (usually at the end of every Sprint, so every two weeks), so we are all on the same page as to what we should be tackling next. On Afterlogic's end, we really like the daily updates, it keeps us in the loop and gives us the chance to inform them early on if anything is off track.

What did you find most impressive or unique about this company?

What's unique about Afterlogic is that they are constantly looking for solutions. When we throw them a problem we want to solve, the response we get is never "oh that's not possible". They are constantly researching and improving themselves, so that they can find the solutions we need. We think this is a win-win situation – by working with us, Afterlogic becomes more skilled technically, and for us, we get to do things we previously thought were not possible.

Are there any areas for improvement or something they could have done differently?

I think it's always that balance between speed and quality – it's something that we as a startup also struggle with, so it's a learning process for both. In general, we find Afterlogic very responsive and open to suggestions. They are a humble firm that's always looking to improve and get better at what they do.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO of a Product Development company. We help startups and companies to build and scale digital products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

We worked with two of their Senior developers: one front-end developer and one back-end developer.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There always are. These guys know where they could improve, and as I see, they’re already growing in those departments.

We enjoy working with their project managers, who are always up to speed. The team maintains a deep understanding of technical issues. We communicate via Skype or other conference systems. We also use email, Trello, Jira, and Basecamp. They always adhere to deadlines.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Afterlogic.Works’s team is proficient in many different platforms and development stacks. We don’t experience delays, bugs, or issues with their development services because they are so detail-oriented and organized. They efficiently deliver quality work and revisions.

Are there any areas they could improve?

My company is very satisfied with their work, so it’s hard to think of anything. Some of their team members are not entirely fluent in English, which is not an issue for us but could be for others.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Anyone who wants to engage a remote vendor such as Afterlogic.Works should clearly document their business requirements. If you’re trying to create something but you don’t know what you want to do, hire a business analyst.

BACKGROUND

What challenge were you trying to address with Afterlogic.Works?

I needed someone that had experience with programming as well as someone who could make suggestions. I was looking to work with a team who had worked on a similar project before.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We work as a team. I set up the task, including what I want to see, then they follow my main ideas. It’s web-based development, which is built PHP 7 and Laravel 5. We use Twitter Bootstrap for the frontend. They’ve created a messaging system, a geo system, address integration with Google, an SMS text message gateway, as well as multi-language support.

It’s a pretty serious project, so we also consult on what we can add or delete. They take the initiative to create a task and then do it.

What is the team composition?

I work with two full-time developers from their team at the moment.

How did Afterlogic.Works perform from a project management standpoint?

We use Trello and work together through there. We divided the work into three stages, then established times and deadlines for each stage. I know what we will do during each stage, so it has been working well.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’ve been satisfied. They speak both English and Russian, which has been working out well as some of my team only speak English.

The new platform has increased customer signups since the launch of the public beta, and user feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Despite some early issues with bugs, Afterlogic’s responsiveness and technical ability kept the project on budget and on schedule.

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 and founder of a startup that’s creating a platform that combines email, cloud storage, note, and chat functions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Afterlogic.Works?

We were looking for developers who could provide email services. We’d had some bad experiences with developers who were lacking the right skills.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We came up with the functions and gave them a presentation of what we wanted. They did all front- and backend development for SaaS. Our in-house developers are working on mobile apps and apps for Windows. Afterlogic is doing all the backend work on the server and the database.

We wanted to integrate all of our cloud services in their product, but there were problems. We use a different encryption method and our database is very different. We ultimately decided to use their product as a baseline and make changes. In terms of design, we added many new features that we can monetize and offer customization options to our clients. We’re also working on more monetization plans, such as payment system integration and subscriptions.

What is the team composition?

We have one main contact person, and we’re working with 8–10 people in total.

How did you come to work with Afterlogic.Works?

We found Afterlogic after weeks of research. We saw examples of their work and knew they had the skills to develop the custom features we wanted. We started with a trial period of 10 days. They delivered everything we wanted in less than five days, so we decided to go with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $35,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in August 2017 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We opened the beta for everyone in January 2018. We have about 1,000 customers and more than 20 signups every day. Our users are really happy overall, but they want more freedom in terms of design and settings. They created a setting where customers can choose their own profile picture or their own icon for the cloud, where previously Afterlogic only had one icon for all folders. We’re really pleased with Afterlogic’s work, the timeframe, and the budget. We decided to let them develop everything and we currently have a lot of tasks open with them.

How did Afterlogic.Works perform from a project management standpoint?

The team is outstanding. They’re very responsive to all of our problems, questions, and bug fixes. We go to Slava (co-founder, Afterlogic.Works) for any clarification, milestone planning, and deadlines. We use Skype and Asana to talk directly to the developers about bugs and custom features. As we get more customers, we’ve had some really tight timeframes. They’ve performed really well in meeting those deadlines.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They really know what they’re doing. We’ve had a lot of developers who claimed expertise but couldn’t deliver. When we have a bug or an issue with a server or database, they know exactly what has to be fixed. The price-to-performance point is really good. They do a really great job.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We had some trouble when they were pushing bug fixes and features to our server without doing QA first. They fixed the bug and pushed it to the server and two new bugs would appear. This problem was sorted out last year.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Clarify what you need. Tell your developer exactly what needs to be done, what the deadlines are, and what the priorities are.

Feedback summary: 

The platform allows the competition to save significant time and money through automated entries and processing, while also benefitting entrants by speeding up the response time. The team handled the project excellently, staying on top of all tasks and communicating regularly and efficiently.

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 executive director of the Stuttgart Wine Competition. Wine and spirits are sent to us to be tasted and evaluated by sommeliers and mixologists that we hire to review and rate the wine.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Afterlogic.Works?

We wanted to make things easier as we dealt with a lot of paperwork and a process with a lot of steps. We were looking for someone to help us with an iPad app and WordPress development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed a Cloud database which stores all the entries to our competition. We used WordPress, as well as a lot of custom Plug-ins in order to create a connection to the database. There are so many criteria that needed classification codes. They coded everything so that every time something new comes in, it is sent directly to the database where it is stored along with the product names, listing names, and classification codes. They created an internal application that we can use on an iPad throughout the competition. The application was developed for both iOS and Android.

As an administrator, I can select wine for example, for each classification code, and I set up a tasting flag for a group of judges which is now automatic. It is really impressive, and no one has done this in wine competitions; we are the first company to do it.

What is the team composition?

We worked with at least three people from their team. Slava Kutenkov [Project Manager, Afterlogic Works] is my main point of contact and the person I reach out to for any changes. He’s amazing; I praise him so much because he made my life easier and is really good at what he does.

How did you come to work with Afterlogic.Works?

I went on Upwork and posted the job. Afterlogic was one of the companies that responded. We had a Skype call right away. Back then, I didn’t even know what I needed from a technical perspective but I really liked their approach. They’re very professional and they did an amazing job.

How much have you invested in them?

We’ve spent around $30,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together on this project in July 2017. The relationship is ongoing in terms of maintenance and support, as well as testing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

By making everything digital, we’ve saved a lot of time and money. Everything is now done automatically and we don’t have to do anything except go into the database to check everything it’s verified.

Our users are really grateful that all the information is sent to them as soon as they have paid. They receive all the instructions right away. Everyone was really impressed because this has not been done in any wine competition. The process is smooth and works the way we wanted it to.

They're really good in the backend, frontend development design, and basically everything about the design. Anything I asked them to do, they took care of.

How did Afterlogic. Works perform from a project management standpoint?

They reach out and make sure that everything is fine. When it comes to management, they manage me more than I manage them. It is really impressive to see that. They are always testing to ensure everything is working correctly. They’re really on top of things and there are no issues with communication—they follow up right away. If I have an issue, they get back to me within a couple of hours no matter what time it is where he is.

We mostly communicate through email, and I have their phone number in case something urgent comes up. Occasionally we have a Skype call to connect and to discuss next steps. They will be invited to the competition because they have been part of the team.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They're very adaptable. They figure out what needs to be done and make it happen. If they can’t, they will come back later with a solution that is even better. They’re always available and respond right away, plus their English skills are very good. I always recommend them to others.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not at all. I really have nothing remotely negative to say because they have really made my life so much easier.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If you tell them your issues and goal and what needs to be done, they will figure it out and might even have a better solution to make things more productive. They’re really good at what they do. They try to save me money by giving me options that will cost less, which has been really helpful.
