Feedback summary: 

Algoworks is highly responsive and sticks to timelines. Feedback and iterations don’t delay major milestones. They understand ultimate goals well, deliver what’s expected, and build relationships with their clients.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

My company is called Can I Just Say It, and it’s a local media company. It’s about promoting local business and local people through a social media platform. We’re located in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. I’m the founder and sole employee.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Algoworks?

I was trying to build a mobile app. I had built a social site for the computer, but I needed an app. I had talked to several different companies in the U.S. and they were really expensive, so my need was to find somebody who could do the work for cheaper.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided really all the services. Once I finally determined that they were going to do the work, they did a discovery and then created an example of what they would probably do. They broke it down, laid it out, talked about the hours and how many people would be involved in each part of the build.

In terms of what the app does, Facebook is pretty much the benchmark for social media, but I felt like Facebook didn’t promote local business very well. We discussed it and they came up with a slider. So you can do a post on the site, just a regular post, or you can post it to a group. We created 10 groups, so you can always find a place to post something. There’s nothing political on there, though. We built in a button called Local Post, and when you click that button, a slider pops up and we determine how many miles you want the post to go out. If you’re a restaurant and you’re doing a BOGO deal on pizzas or something, you can just target people in just a five-mile radius of the restaurant. And then anybody in a five-mile radius of the group that it’s posted in will be the only ones that see it. It really creates a local feel.

We also created a button that lets you set the slider to only show you things that are going on within a five-mile radius of your location. It allows you to get the local feel of what’s going on if you travel somewhere new.

Algoworks provided five resources for the project, and I communicated mostly with the project manager. His name was Saurabh. But we would have a Skype conference call every Wednesday and usually, the whole team would be there. Actually, I guess there were more than five people on the team. There were three girls and four guys, so it must have been seven at some points. We built the app for both iOS and Android.

How did you come to work with Algoworks?

It was just a crapshoot. I posted it on Upwork and I probably had 100 people let me know that they knew exactly what I wanted, so I just picked somebody. I picked three or four people, and through the conversations, texting, figuring out how much they bugged me, I decided to pick a guy and he put me in touch with Algoworks. I don’t know if I picked Algoworks or if I picked a guy who does freelance for Algoworks. I don’t know how that goes. I think there are people out there that claim to do work but they actually have a team.

How much have you invested with Algoworks?

I spent $12,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

It was probably around December of 2016. It was only going to take 10 weeks. I think it took a little longer than that. It was mostly finished by February, but we added some changes. It wasn’t like they were slow. The app is launched, and we’re putting in one more change, one more update, and then I won’t be finished working with them but I need to take a break. I need to save up some more money before we do anything else.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s only been live about a week and a half, so I don’t have market results. When this last button that we’re doing is put in and finished, it’ll be ready to show to investors. Anybody that I show the app to thinks it's terrific. The problem is that you’re up against Facebook, and everybody will tell you they hate Facebook, but they’re all on it. It’s hard to get someone to switch over, but whatever. It’ll happen slowly or it won’t happen at all, but none of that will be Algoworks’ fault. They did a great job. The app looks good; it’s clean, it’s smooth. Everything is terrific.

How did Algoworks perform from a project management standpoint?

For the most part, I let them do what they came up with and then I would offer feedback. It’s not an easy process. But for the most part, they were open to critiques and suggestions. For the most part, I let them design it, and then when it came to font size and bolding the text or something like that, those were the changes that I made. My whole thing was that it just needed to be easy, and some of the things they did in the beginning weren’t easy, but then we made the changes and it got better.

They used Basecamp, which was pretty cool, and that kept me involved every day. They posted everything they were doing, who was working on it, and any questions they had for me. I downloaded the app as well, so it was a direct connection to them. It was my first time doing it, but I thought it was a great experience.

They performed great. If there were any challenges, it was that they’re in India. But the reality was that Saurabh, who was the leader, was awesome. I could call him anytime. We ended up becoming friends and speaking quite a bit throughout the week. He would always take my call; I could always text him or something. It was great. I don’t know if that’s how they usually are, but I thought it was awesome. Very smooth; no complaints. It was great.

I had worked with another company when I built the initial site. My experience with them was not great, and one of my problems with that company was that we would meet once a month and a month later there would be parts I didn’t like and they’d spend the next month fixing it, and it was just horrible. I liked that I could talk to Algoworks pretty much any day of the week. And Basecamp was always sending me updates, too.

What did you find most impressive about Algoworks?

I can’t compare them to anybody that I’ve dealt with like this, but I will say that for a situation where I’m giving out a lot of money, especially overseas, they were awesome. I don’t know if that’s how they are with every client, but Saurabh, the team lead, was very cool about it. He walked me through everything. I just had a terrific experience. I wish I had more money; I’d build something else. I mean, I’m actually going to try and create an app-building company here in Delaware and use them as the team to do the work. In fact, we’ve had a couple of try-out clients. I like those guys so much and I like what they do so much that I definitely want to do more work with them.

Are there any areas Algoworks could improve?

No.

Algoworks focused on integrating this new niche into the platform by creating new landing pages for the dental market, making adjustments in the backend to allow all the processes to run online, and making it easy for the payment service provider that we use and the contract we had in place. It was a bit of design and software development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

First, Algoworks established the requirements during several meetings via Skype. We explained the new landing page was not only for dentists or the dental market, but that we needed the landing and the reward models to have all the design aligned with the same theme. It was moving the theme of the website in the landing pages and main page.

They had a designer for UX. For the software development, our platform runs on WordPress and UserPro. They did adjustments on the backend using HTML and WordPress. They created a new widget for project boxes, so the users can click in the first box and go directly to the project page. That was a new development they did with a new design. They adjusted the payment flow of the landing page with the dentist projects and integrated it with our payment provider, MANGOPAY. They made sure that the rest of the developments were connected by testing all the functionalities.

How did you come to work with Algoworks?

It was through word of mouth. Algoworks was a company that one of our U.S.-based IT advisors was using for his business. Algoworks developed an app for his business. He mentioned Algoworks to me.

How much have you invested with Algoworks?

The first project was €2,000 ($2,135). It was a small project. Because we are changing from one IT supplier to another and Algoworks is the new one, we are going to give them more projects. We happen to have a CTO in-house as well, but there are now some projects that they will deliver and demand around $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started discussions in December 2016. They really started working in the beginning of January 2017 and ended it in February 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The results were good. We've gotten good feedback on the landing pages and its content. The design was much better than in the past. Overall, it’s had a positive impact on the business, and we are happy with their service.

How did Algoworks perform from a project management standpoint?

The communication was good. We received weekly reports and constantly talked about the software development. Because we were in constant communication, we received a recap report on the hours spent and the progress, but it wasn’t that detailed.

What did you find most impressive about Algoworks?

I haven’t worked with many companies, but what’s great about Algoworks is their flexibility in terms of hours or availability to talk. I’m in Europe and they’re in India, but I always have a large time window to talk to them, either in the morning or late in the afternoon. It was almost 24 hours support. Beyond our small project, I cannot say much in terms of other services that they have like app development.

Are there any areas Algoworks could improve?

For the next project, they could spend more time understanding the requirements and the project itself so we have a better overview and predictable cost instead of paying hourly. To my knowledge, this was our first project and it was too small to experiment with how we would work and how our product is being built. This made it difficult for them to anticipate how many hours they are going to spend when they are working on it for the first time. I think the weekly reporting could be in more detail too.

Feedback summary: 

Algoworks, as a virtual partner, is superior in effective communication and daily updates. They are attentive to detail and help internal teams understand what’s possible or what should be expected at any stage. They use Basecamp to manage the project, and their design and user research is on point.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our company helps to streamline payments within social experiences.

I am the Founder and CEO of the company

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Algoworks?

Our company was looking to find a solution for inefficient payment options across various social environments. We needed swift development and resources without sacrificing good quality, and we found that Algoworks was the right partner for that. We don’t have internal development resources; Algoworks is our development team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

This is an iOS mobile application to streamline payments across social interactions. The main feature of the application is the ability for a user to search restaurants that are nearby and give them the ability to check in, summon their bill, pay their bill, and check out. There is no need for intervention of a server. It empowers the user to submit mobile payments and be in and out of the restaurant on their time.

Phase one of the project was looking at discovery; we did that to understand all of the user stories that were needed in order for us to achieve what we were trying to achieve with the application.

The second thing was doing wireframes to visualize the user experience and make sure that it was aligned with our goals for creating a simple and streamlined process for the user.

The third phase was to identify all the sprints and stages so that we would be able to quickly identify what phase we are in and what to expect in the next phase. That provided both teams the clarity we needed to ensure that we’re staying on track for our development goal. Algoworks was driving a lot of the organization of each of these phases. They helped us prioritize effectively and set expectations.

On a consistent basis, there were three resources from Algoworks working on the project.

How did you come to work with Algoworks?

I did research on them to see what projects they’d done in the past in terms of expertise in mobile and between different platforms. One of the biggest things for me was looking at cost versus quality. I didn’t want to compromise the quality of the work just because of the cost. I believe there is a specific quality attributed to cost. Also, when I spoke with them, I was impressed with their ability to communicate effectively given the fact that the relationship would be virtual.

How much have you invested with Algoworks?

We spent between $10,000 and $20,000 on the project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started on the project in August 2016, and the project was completed in February 2017. We’re continuing to reengage with them to build even further because we were pleased with their work.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Algoworks is professional, extremely detail-oriented, and very easy to work with. The measure of success right now is just making sure it’s available. I don’t have any metrics because the project is still not completed. The design was on point. The feedback we’ve gotten from the product so far is that the user experience is as we’ve identified it. The application is a beautiful app and looks really nice from an aesthetic standpoint. It also incorporates all of the updated technology in terms of being able to log in using your social network of choice and being able to invite friends. We’re pleased with the product overall.

How did Algoworks perform from a project management standpoint?

They were great. I would give them the highest stars because they were diligent about providing updates. We used Basecamp. Algoworks helped me to set my expectations and told me when issues were coming up and helped to resolve them quickly.

What did you find most impressive about Algoworks?

Effective communication is a strength of theirs. They’re very attentive in terms of making sure that they were responding to emails in a timely manner. They made sure to set up meeting invites and regular sync-ups. The communication is really important since it was a virtual project.

Are there any areas Algoworks could improve?

I don’t have anything now. We’re still early in the project.

Feedback summary: 

Algoworks successfully built a platform that generated the desired outside funding to expand the concept. They were flexible with pricing to help a startup and provided amazing business advice.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

My company name is BrainBoxol, and my position is the company director and co-founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Algoworks?

I talked to them about mobile website design, development, and support for my online platform. An end-to-end project.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They use an iOS platform and have released the mobile website on iOS and Android. The web framework is in CodeIgniter/VS Code. They have developed the wireframe as well. I have a transcript of the 31 pages of the user pages. They are now about to develop it into HTML, and I will be able to test that by mid-February.

How did you come to work with Algoworks?

For 3 months, I did online research on various IT companies using Clutch. I read a lot of reviews on various tech companies, and it was really handy because it gave me demographic regions, write-ups, and reviews. And because Clutch has links to go to various company websites, I started going to the websites. But my main entry point was through Clutch, and that’s how I ended up reading on Algoworks and made contact. I sent various opportunities of quotes to various companies and finally awarded the contract to Algoworks.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began in late December 2016. The prototype release is at the end of February 2017. I’m looking at doing crowdfunding for my project in March 2017. After that, the full application will be released in May 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They have been really great. I am truly pleased with the way they go about daily business. I’ve actually started to enjoy working with them and that was from day 1. Because I’m an offshore organization in a company, and because I’m a startup as well, they have been extremely accommodating in terms of helping me fund the project. They have actually proposed that they can do a stage I and stage II implementation, wherein stage I they will be able to release a functional prototype with functional features which will allow me to go to market. After the crowdfunding project, they will be able to put full-on force once I have enough funds.

How did Algoworks perform from a project management standpoint?

The communication has been great. We have weekly Skype calls. But in between the Skype calls, if I do need to go on my Skype calls straightaway, they actually do come on Skype. Communication is the most important thing since we are an offshore company, and Algoworks has been fantastic in that regard.

What did you most impressive about Algoworks?

They have qualified technicians who know what they are doing. For me, it’s a brand-new business, so sometimes I am led by their recommendations. It shows that they have got experience in this field, and that is really great. They have developed many website applications and their experience and ability to manage projects comes through very clearly.

Are there any areas Algoworks could improve?

We have only worked with them for a month, so it is the early days, but so far I cannot say if there is a need for improvement. Nothing comes to mind. I’m really happy with their communication and quality of work. There have been a couple of variations in the way that I was going along with things, and they have been accommodating without any extra cost. So far, it’s been a great journey.

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

Definitely, do your research. Make sure that you have a good understanding of your own business. And by doing that, if you do come across Algoworks—and I suggest you do—then they will make sure to match you to the right developer and project manager. It is really crucial that you pair up with the right persons in the company that have the right knowledge and skill sets in the area that you’re trying to get off the ground for your startup.

They have recommended me to various videos that I should have. I’m really happy that my research through Clutch served as a reliable floor, and it has been fantastic. Otherwise, it would have been really difficult for me to get this project done offshore. It’s actually made my dreams come true because I am a startup low in funds; going offshore to try to get this done and the company itself compromising on cost has been a win-win for me. I’d like to say thank you to Algoworks but to Clutch as well for being mindful of people like us.

Pros include a commitment to transparency and a meticulous approach to coding. Proactive communication when it comes to unexpected delays was the only area for possible improvement. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our company provides advertising as part of a Facebook trivia game. Our second organization buys and sells leads for home improvement customers. I am the chief technology officer of both companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Algoworks?

We needed to develop our company website.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement.

Algoworks built the backend and frontend of our website. We also wanted to remodel an earlier version of our home improvement website, which had been initially built by Algoworks and chose to use them for this project as well. We've always felt confident enough in Algoworks to turn to them for any new work, including our leads posting system, which allows us to collaborate with other companies. Much of the database handling was built by Algoworks as well.

Algoworks assigned around 3-4 people to our project. We interacted with our project lead, but also had meetings with the rest of the team.

How did you come to work with Algoworks?

I was not involved in the process. We initially worked with another company for developing our website, but they merged with Algoworks. We were satisfied with their work and continued to work with the same people.

How much have you invested with Algoworks?

The cost of Algoworks' services has been between $50,000 and $200,000 in total.

What is the status of this engagement?

We've been working with Algoworks on and off since 2008. In-between building stages, their involvement was restricted to fixing issues, so there have been time gaps of between 6 months to one year. There were also periods when we worked with Algoworks for more than 12 months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our entire Facebook game has been built by Algoworks; top-to-bottom, front-to-back. The application was live between 2011 and 2013, on a 24/7 basis. It withstood the test of time and was able to function up to our requirements. We made changes as-needed, whenever we got in touch with new partners and advertising implementations. We wouldn't have been able to do this without Algoworks.

Algoworks has created the posting system for our remodeling website. We've been using it for 3 years, and it's worked flawlessly. The work has held out, and we haven't had any major crashes.

How did Algoworks perform from a project management standpoint?

Some of our items have had fixed budgets, while others were estimated within a timeframe. For the most part, Algoworks was able to stick to the schedule. We used Assembla for project tracking.

What did you find most impressive about Algoworks?

Algoworks has been extremely thorough and honest.

Are there any areas Algoworks could improve?

There are always situations when things don't turn out as we'd hoped, or are delayed. Better communication on Algoworks' side would be appreciated. Developers like to keep everyone happy, so they won't necessarily announce any delays, hoping that they'll be able to make the deadline at the last minute. A part of this was due to change requests made after initial estimates, which made cost and time tracking a tricky issue. Miscommunications were never at a level that would determine us to move to someone else.

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

Clients need to find someone with whom they can communicate effectively, in order to have their goals reflected in the final product. This is something that we're aware of. The fact that Algoworks' team is in India, and English is not their first language, has come into play. I'm always meticulous in going over each item, making sure that we're on the same page, and that there's no language barrier to interfere with the work.

They impressed with their high-quality code, flexible communication, and ability to always stay within schedule and budget.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

My company is a mobile development shop that was started by my partner and I after we had an idea for a brand new application. I am the chief executive officer of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Algoworks?

We did some research and fleshed-out the idea over the course of a weekend, making some user interface mock-ups. We eventually decided that it was worth bringing to market, but we had very little experience for getting there.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We came to the party with a very well-defined idea of how we wanted the app to work, but Algoworks gave us top-to-bottom support in terms of creative designs, colors, fonts, and so on. Coding-wise, my partner and I have no experience, so Algoworks took care of this part exclusively.

Algoworks enabled us to create our app for 3 different platforms: iOS, Android, and the web, over the span of 6 months. The web version allows people to follow the app activity from their PCs.

We interfaced directly with 8-10 people from Algoworks. I'm sure that there were some reach-back capabilities, but in terms of our direct interactions, there were design and development teams, a testing group, as well as people in charge of creating interfaces for social media.

How did you come to work with Algoworks?

My background is in government program management, which has included some IT projects. One week after my partner and I had our conversation, someone from Algoworks contacted me on LinkedIn. Based on that initial contact, we had a conversation with Algoworks, and within a week, we were contracting with them.

How much have you invested with Algoworks?

The total cost of Algoworks' services has been in excess of $25,000. Their pricing was very competitive. Algoworks reached out to me, and I still felt that it was important to research the market and determine what was reasonable. The upfront cost proved to be very good. As we proceeded with the development, we started to think of more functionalities and how to make the app more user-friendly in order to grab more market share. As we expanded the scope, the pricing remained competitive.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Algoworks in June 2014. Since the app went live, we've made a number of updates and enhancements to it with the help of Algoworks. This has been our only project together, but given the number of facets and enhancements we've gone through, we've gotten a good sense of Algoworks' work ethic and ability to stay on task.

One of the biggest contributions that Algoworks had was to help us approve the app on the Apple Store and Google Play. There were some hiccups on the iOS side, but we remained committed and went back to the drawing boards, making revisions in terms of selling and marketing the app so that it would become approved by Apple. We ultimately succeeded in doing this in June 2015. The Android version went live in December 2014.

We're looking to upgrade our servers at the moment, because we're doing well internationally. The app leverages celebrity exposure. Once we've marketed it properly, I'm sure that it will be a great success in the US, and we want to make sure that we have the right bandwidth for that.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since its launch, our app has had 200,000 downloads worldwide. All the people who have seen our app have been impressed with the fact that we were able to create a functional product within 6 months from the spark of an idea, without prior development experience.

How did Algoworks perform from a project management standpoint?

Working with Algoworks was a great experience in terms of timeliness and quality. The constraints were within the parameters that we wanted.

We used Assembla for project tracking and also used Google Cloud for sharing documents. Communication was a bit of a challenge because Algoworks is based in India, while we are in the Washington DC area. There were many occasions in which we had Skype calls at 2 AM, trying to get our app to market. It was still a great experience, and Skype proved to be an invaluable tool.

What did you find most impressive about Algoworks?

Algoworks has been very responsive. In my experience with program management, I've seldom found projects that came under-budget or even on-budget. Algoworks delivered within time and budget, which was a testament to their promise of doing whatever's necessary. We are experienced managers, but Algoworks was a great partner, and they responded well to us being adamant on hitting certain milestones. In many projects, there isn't a level of partnership in which the partner is as invested as the client. We could tell that, as the app went live in each store, there was a mutual level of satisfaction, and everyone felt good about the work.

Are there any areas Algoworks could improve?

The time difference was a challenge, but this is a part of globalization. We accepted this as a normal part of doing business. Ultimately, if we were to look at this from a cost/benefit standpoint, Algoworks being based in India was beneficial to us. India also has more holidays than the US, so we had to work around them. Algoworks was ultimately able to support us within our time constraints.

We've used Algoworks for our Android and iOS mobile application development project. Algoworks provided a team of 15 developers, working on GPS tracking functionalities and so on. We provide multilingual features which translate the destination for users, as well as a VPN [virtual private network] which can be used to browse potentially-blocked websites while inside the taxi. Our app has social-login capabilities.

We have also created a whistle-blowing feature for drivers, through which they can signal any nearby accidents or roadblocks in real-time. Another feature of our app is real-time tracking and sharing of locations by the users. It was meant to provide a sense of security, given that most of our users were from another country. We provide payment integration through open APIs.

Algoworks provided one business analyst who worked closely with my project manager in order to gather requirements from our side. We also had one iOS developer and one for Android, as well as an integration tester.

How did you come to work with Algoworks?

I looked at various mobile application development services. One of Algoworks' existing clients is a good friend of mine, who referred them to me.

How much have you invested with Algoworks?

The total cost of our project with Algoworks was between $30,000 and $45,000. We worked on a fixed-cost model.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Algoworks in January 2015, and our application was delivered in May, after a 5-month engagement. We're now discussing the development of a next version of our application, which will include a loyalty program. Our app isn't available at a national level, but we have been approached by various taxi companies, which represent our target market.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Working with Algoworks was great. Their team was very responsive and came up with many ideas during the engagement, helping us decide on what technology to use. As a business analyst, I was involved in much of the user experience work, but not the actual development.

Algoworks helped us determine what was or wasn't feasible. They helped me visualize what the application would look like, which helped me get feedback from potential customers and head in the right direction. Algoworks was very responsive and agile in figuring out what the user interface was going to look like. We had a progressive approach, involving a lot of feedback sharing with clients.

How did Algoworks perform from a project management standpoint?

Algoworks stuck to our budget, which was important, as we also had to conform to our customers' requirements. The work was delivered on time. We used Bugzilla and Jira for tracking our work with Algoworks.

What did you find most impressive about Algoworks?

I've burned my hand from an outsourcing point-of-view by working with other companies. Other vendors that I've used outsourced parts of the work, but Algoworks had the necessary capabilities in-house for getting our application out. Compared to other companies I've used, Algoworks did a fantastic job.

Are there any areas Algoworks could improve?

I would have liked for Algoworks to work during the night, which equated to working hours in our time zone. It was sometimes hard to reach Algoworks with issues from our clients during the day, but I can accept this limitation, given that we had an offshore engagement.

Reviews of the apps developed by Algoworks have been outstanding so far, with download rates reaching the benchmarks set by the client. The vendor always kept to the timeline, and project management was strong throughout. Quality from the entire team at Algoworks was very high.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Picswapp is a startup which has come up with a mobile photo-sharing application. It is aimed at simplifying sharing photos for particular events within a group of friends or co-workers. It eliminates the need for chasing after contacts by creating particular events to which everyone can sign on using our application. The Android version of our app has been launched.

I am a co-founder of the company and the product owner.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Algoworks?

We needed a partner for developing our app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Algoworks worked on the Android and iOS versions of our app. I came up with the idea, but everything else was handled by the Algoworks team, from requirements and business analysis, to design and development. Algoworks refined and visualized my idea, coming to a good outcome.

Algoworks assigned us a business analyst, a designer, a project manager, one backend developer, one frontend developer, and a quality assurance specialist. In total, we worked with a 7-8-person team from Algoworks.

How did you come to work with Algoworks?

I haven't worked with many vendors in the past. This is only my second project with an IT services company. There were no exact criteria, I simply wanted to build a mobile application. One my friends is good friends with the co-founder of Algoworks and had run a successful project with them. I saw their past work and read reviews, eventually choosing Algoworks.

How much have you invested with XYZCompany?

So far, the cost of our development has been around $25,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Algoworks in mid-December 2015. Our Android app has been launched on the Play Store this month. We are now concentrating on marketing the application and developing the iOS version, which is expected to launch in a couple of months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

In terms of quality, the main focus for us was the apps' ability to handle large traffic volumes. Our apps are meant to share large amounts of data with users. I discussed this with our quality analysis team and with Algoworks. The quality of work, from the design stage up to development, has been amazing. I am very much satisfied. Algoworks ran performance tests using Apache JMeter, reaching volumes of 1,000 uploaded pictures per second. The apps passed those tests, and Algoworks provided good quality assurance overall.

The reviews we've received describe the application as a must-have for anyone with a busy schedule.

How did Algoworks perform from a project management standpoint?

I am very particular about designs, so I took a lot of time on this stage. Algoworks has always maintained good timelines. The project manager from Algoworks was excellent. He shared sprint plans with us and always delivered tasks on time, using tools like Basecamp.

There were times when I was travelling or busy, not having time to check on the project. Algoworks' team was always hard-working and dedicated, giving me updates on what was being done at every point.

What did you find most impressive about Algoworks?

I haven't worked with many IT services vendors in the past. The challenge for our application was its ability to handle a large number of images, sharing them with multiple people. Every user would take pictures and everything would be saved into one place, where the group could download and share the content. Algoworks provided the perfect solution for my challenge.

I was also very concerned with user experience and interaction with my app. I was able to work with Algoworks' designer, who came up with an amazing solution. The application exceeded my expectations.

Algoworks' requirements analysis skills and quality of work are distinguishing factors, and have contributed to making our project a success.

Are there any areas Algoworks could improve?

I haven't worked with many vendors, but I don't think that any other company could have developed my application as well as Algoworks. There is nothing to improve. Algoworks was good in terms of requirements analysis, project management, quality, timely delivery, and flexibility in terms of cost.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The client was very pleased with the project, citing Algoworks' professionalism, technical support, and smooth product launch. They also praised the company's knowledge and creativity.

BACKGROUND

We are a USA/India-registered non-profit trust based in India. We deliver development solutions to elected officials, citizens, and administrators on issues of health, education, gender, and livelihood in India. We provide implementation support for developmental projects and work directly in the field. We also create knowledge/policy insights that catalyze developmental progress. Lastly, we create awareness by tracking and maintaining an open-data platform for developmental metrics.

My role in the firm is as Chief Technology Officer. I lead all software product management.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

We were looking for a mobile app company that could deliver an enterprise application. The purpose was to allow multiple volunteers to collect data offline at remote locations without Internet, and to manage the database offline, which could later be synced with our server. We collect data in the field via Android-based tablets.

SOLUTION

We floated a request for proposal which received replies by multiple companies. Based on the credentials, we selected 3 companies and interviewed them. We found Algoworks to be the best, as they were an award winning company. Their technical team was also able to satisfactorily answer our queries.

The scope of the project was to develop a high-performing Android tablet app to enable our field staff to submit maximum forms. This app was required to store data and work in online/offline modes. The field staff would fill in the various forms, and then the app needed to be able to store these offline before sending the data online when connected to the Internet. The challenge was to make sure this worked smoothly with 500 or more staff recording the data each day.

Algoworks developed the application for Android platforms over the course of 3 months. The enterprise app allows multiple (approx. 500) users to access and store data. The application helps to manage and collect data easily with the help of several forms for different problems/concerns in remote areas. The app also works offline which helps users to use it at remote locations without Internet. The offline feature makes it very convenient to collect data at remote locations; once collected and stored locally, the data can later be synced with our server and analyzed through reports.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

I found the Algoworks team very good in their knowledge and creativity. They asked good questions and communicated very well. We could get ready for our launch in time, and it was smooth, without any surprises. The best part is their support and their understanding of how to take applications into production.

They were very professional and covered the scope and deliverables within time/budget. They are good at taking ownership and finding solutions to technical problems. They also supported us very well when the application went live.

I find that there is nothing that they could improve or do differently. They are good at what they do. Project execution was very smooth.
