Feedback summary: 

Always delivering high-quality products, the team regularly receives wide praise from the satisfied end-clients. They are adaptable to a variety of project management tools, while the in-house project management ensures smooth runs. The team learns quickly and always produces excellent code.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the head of operations for Ringmaster. We provide offshore management for various companies in the U.K. fintech industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AIS Novations?

We have hired them as the development team for one of our U.K. clients.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided a full team for developing software that managed remortgages. It's the biggest project we’ve worked on together with them. They helped our client build an entire product from the beginning, structuring the technical side, setting up databases and servers, and developing the back and frontend of the software. The main technologies used were Node.js and React.

We’ve also hired them for a project on behalf of a new client we’re working with. They’re currently developing the technical side of a solution based on chatbot technologies, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning.

What is the team composition?

Our main point of contact was Sergey (Founder, AIS Novations). They assigned around 15 developers for our biggest project and two or three for our smaller ones.

How did you come to work with AIS Novations?

Some of my colleagues had had a collaboration with Sergey and then recommended AIS Novations to us. The team sent us their offer, we had interviews with the developers, and we got to test them. Based on that, we decided who we preferred to work with.

How much have you invested with them?

The total has definitely been above $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started talking to them in June or August 2017, then started the development for our biggest project at the end of August or beginning of September. We started the smaller ones recently, around a month ago. Our work with AIS Novations is still ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our clients are extremely happy with them. We’ve had comments like 'Where did you find that genius team?'. They know the code well and they perform well even when they inherit code, rather than writing it from the beginning. They're able to read other people’s code and fix it.

We'll continue working with them in the long run. The client was happy with the results from our biggest project, and are insisting on having AIS Novations’ developers continue to work on the project.

How did AIS Novations perform from a project management standpoint?

We're satisfied with their performance. Each of our clients has their own project management standards, but AIS Novations has a good ability to adjust to all kinds of tools, including Jira, Slack, and Trello. There haven’t been any problems on that side. Even if there is a communication issue, they have project managers that can help resolve it. We haven’t encountered any issues on that level.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The most impressive thing to me was the speed at which they’ve been able to learn new technologies, and how fast they’ve been able to adjust inherited code based on new specifications and client requirements.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Clients need to be specific about what their requirements and specifications are. The clearer they state their requirements and tasks, the better the code will be, and the faster the team will work.

Feedback summary: 

They took the project and ensured it was completed successfully after the previous agency was unable to do so. Their developers were skilled, dedicated, and professional, working quickly to see the tight deadlines.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO of Recrutoid Kazakhstan, a recruiting company with a qualitative database of CVs and vacancies for professionals. We focus on those fluent in English or other international languages, as well as those seeking to work in international or large Kazakh companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire AIS Novations?

AIS Novations helped us build our website.

What were your goals for this project?

To build a high-level job board where companies can post vacancies and match with great CVs.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were recommended by a friend.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

They took over our frontend development almost from scratch because the previous team couldn’t handle it. They helped us to develop our job board in a full scope, from design until we launched.

What was the team composition?

We had a breaking point when we noticed that our previous frontend development team couldn’t handle the project. For that reason, since the beginning, we asked for strong Angular developers. There were people participating in the web development. One backend developer, two frontend developers, two tech project managers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We had very strict deadlines and the project scope was huge, but their developers did a really great job. They were fast and delivered on time for the website’s launch.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They immediately provided us with two developers who nailed the interview and jumped into the project. We used Telegram for real-time chat, as well as Jira. It was very effective and the developers were always in touch.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The most impressive thing is their ability to have only best developers on board, whether it’s a frontend developer or a QA resource. They were always the best.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

Everything is great at this point. We will definitely have more projects with them in the future, as they saved this one.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Their support for the entire IT infrastructure has been invaluable over the years. Their availability regardless of the time difference, reliability, and communication put them in the spotlight. Their competitive prices are hard to beat, though they could invest in creating their own QA department.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the IT project manager at RBC Life Sciences and I specialize in outsourced project management. We manufacture, market, and distribute nutritional supplements and personal care products in North America, Southeast Asia, and Australia. We sell through a network of independent distributors and license arrangements.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire AIS Novations?

We needed a knowledgeable and reliable IT team to handle our ongoing e-commerce projects and improve our IT system's efficiency and accuracy.

What were your goals for this project?

RBC Life is a multi-level marketing (MLM) company and we rely on our associates to recruit new customers, so our main goal was to build and improve our enrollment system and our e-commerce websites.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I had previously hired Sergey Galuze (Founder, AIS Novations) as a contractor for a small project from Elance, which is now Upwork. The project went very well and I felt that he was the reliable, responsive, and knowledgeable tech person we were looking for, so we started the relationship again.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

As an MLM company, we have to build our website and enrollment system based on a commission engine, which is serviced and supported by specialized commission providers. We’ve changed our commission provider a couple of times during the past decades, and it was AIS that helped us build our enrollment and e-commerce websites accordingly, with different technologies, from traditional ASP to .NET, from a C# web form to MVC, and from a customized CMS to popular a CMS in the market.

They also helped us develop an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system which ties together the online orders, shipping system, accounting system, commission system, and our intranet. It flows orders from our web database to the commission database and accounting database respectively.

What was the team composition?

We have a team of three to four developers depending on the workload. Most of the time, the team is made up of one CTO from AIS and two developers, though sometimes we may need help from a UI/UX designer and a database administrator.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

With AIS, we can successfully launch marketing projects and have improved our IT system.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We’ve worked with several other teams before but it has never worked out. The most challenging part of IT outsourcing is communication as most outsourced teams are in different time zones and speak different languages, which makes the communication over the phone very difficult.

AIS is online whenever you are working, and when emergencies come up, they work day and night until the problem is solved.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They communicate extremely well.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

I’d recommend for them to create their own QA department. They rely on our QA, which is handled by a business analyst, but I think they need to have their own QA specialists in order to control the quality of their projects.

Feedback summary: 

Client retention is 97%, testament to the quality and delivery of AIS’s work. Their large, diverse team ensures that necessary technical skills are available for any given project. They take ownership of tasks with attention to detail and high-level knowledge.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of a software development firm.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AIS Novations?

The challenge that I had in the past was finding good solid software engineers and developers that could provide quality service. I was hiring them to build my product with my name on it. I needed not only quality but to be able to count on their abilities and them being there.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

AIS and I have been doing business now for the past six years. The principle of AIS and I started together on a single project. Then, as projects came in, I continued to use them and added their staff members to the point where now I only use AIS developers. They're in the same office and I have a proven track record with their company.

One recent project we’re working on is updating a client’s application that was written in .NET and C#. The older version needed to be more flexible and quicker, and it needed new features added. They hired us to come in and completely rewrite it using the same logic. We eventually had a team of 11 people working on it including developers, project managers, and testers. We’re in our third year of the project and now down to 5 team members.

Another example is an application we’ve been building with developers from AIS over the last two years. We wrote a complicated online ordering system from scratch that’s integrated with QuickBooks.

What is the team dynamic?

We often have multiple projects ongoing at the same time. We pull in who’s available at the time, both people we’ve worked with before and new people from their teams.

Because their teams are so large, we've not had a situation where we couldn’t get the expert staff in for the technology we were working on. We’re using a wide range of technology, both web and database wise. They offer everything. They’re a very well-rounded shop.

How did you come to work with AIS Novations?

A personal reference via word of mouth. The principal owner's wife is a programmer who was working for me. She could no longer program for me but said that her husband could. She gave me his information and that's how we started.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together for 6 years and its ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The evidence is that either the product works or it doesn’t, and the client likes it or they don’t. Our measure of success is the fact that our client retention is 97%. You can’t ask for a better testimonial. Based on the example I gave before, when you have a group of people that are developing software and your client keeps you on for 3 years, that is a testimony to how well we do. That translates into how well AIS does because that is where the development staff comes from.

How did AIS Novations perform from a project management standpoint?

The participants on a given project vary and I act as oversight to identify any problems. The only problems I’ve seen are typical ones. Often, they’re not real problems, just management issues that occur when a criterion hasn’t been written to specific details so that it can be understood.

Overall, they’re dependable. We require them to be on the clock during our business hours or our client business hours, wherever they may be. They're always available. They turn in their work and its high quality.

We’ve worked so well together and we have fine-tuned the working relationship over the past 6 years. We've ironed out all of the things that there would have been issues with. At this point, it’s like we're one company even though we're not because I use them exclusively.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I liked the fact that, when you give them a task, they’ll come back to you with questions for clarification and with examples and suggestions of how to do it better. That is truly professional. They don't just take what you've given them, they take ownership. They bring an attention to detail and high level of knowledge to the task.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

The higher quality your requirements are the more you're going to like the results. Vague specifications don't get results. Also, stay interactive in the project. Don't give a task to them and then come back 6 months later, hoping that they’ve built what you asked for.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the president of an e-commerce company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AIS Novations?

We were looking to update two of our websites, optimizing their performance and making them mobile-friendly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We supplied them with our own design expectations for the two websites, and with that, they updated the sites’ out-of-date .NET platform to the latest version of .NET, which increased their speed and performance. They also made the sites mobile-friendly, while maintaining their key functionalities. 

What is the team dynamic? 

We worked with our primary project manager, Sergey [CEO, AIS Novations], as well as another project manager who helped oversee the project and deal with its nuances. We also worked with a rotating team of developers who were overseen by a lead developer.

How did you come to work with AIS Novations?

We found a number of companies to interview for the project on UpWork. When we talked to Sergey, we felt comfortable that he was knowledgeable and had experience in what we needed, so we chose to work with AIS.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested around $40,000 to $50,000 on them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began partnering at the beginning of 2016 and continue to work with them. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The overall traffic on the two websites increased, and we think it’s probably due to the improvements AIS made. We can also see for ourselves that the websites are performing faster and more efficiently, so we know our users are getting a better experience.

How did AIS Novations perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very responsive when we need them to troubleshoot or if we had a concern. They ensured we had all the resources necessary to get the project done on time.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We found their ability to deal with very complex issues most impressive. They allocated resources properly so they could solve anything that came up.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They initially used MongoDB technology for the two websites’ databases, but the rest of our websites operated on Microsoft SQL. We wanted our websites to uniformly remain on the Microsoft SQL database since that was most effective for our business, so they had to make that adjustment for us.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be interactive with them and monitor the project timeline by having weekly progress meetings. This will ensure that nothing slips through the cracks and your timeline is met.
