The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a co-founder/CTO of Roll Labs, Inc. At Roll we are building a docked escooter solution for cities and campuses.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Altalogy?

Altalogy was hired to help Roll design and implement our iOS app.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to design and implement our ios app for allowing users to pick up and drop off scooters.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We initially posted on AngelList seeking a designer for our mobile app. Dawid from Altalogy reached out along with 2 dozen other candidates.

I interviewed 7-10 candidates over the course of the week and selected Altalogy as they were the only "team" that applied that offered other services as well (ios/android/backend development on top of design services).

Every other applicant was an individual freelance designer. I asked each designer that I interviewed to mock up a screen based on an RFP that I had written that described the app and project in great detail.

I was impressed by Altalogy's designer's work and liked that they offered other services that would potentially help us in implementation as the project continued (which we used!) and selected them for the project.

Describe the project in detail.

The project was broken up into two parts.

The first part was the design phase that had originally hired Altalogy for. This was a well-scoped project as we had provided them with a very detailed RFP that detailed the exact screens we wanted mocks for. Dawid also provided us with a terms/contract sheet that specified the scope of work (20 mocks + 15 safety cards).

As the design phase continued we began implementing the backend and app. We used our internal iOS developer for a few weeks but eventually leveraged Altology to help us complete the MVP app for demo purposes.

What was the team composition?

For the app design I interfaced entierly with Dawid from Altalogy who served as a proxy between me and their designer Marta. For the software stack the ios team was broken up into a squad of two of Dawid from Altalogy and Dan - a Roll Labs part-time employee, with minimal support from me. I handled the entirety of the backend implementation that powers the service.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

You can view the results of the ios app design / development in our demo video here: https://ridewithroll.com/demo

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Our workflow was rather seamless. Our team is pretty remote - Altology is based in Poland, I am in NYC and our iOS dev is based in Seattle. Regardless of the timezone differences most of our conversations were done in slack.

Dawid is a true professional. He is extremely responsive and energetic. He was able to push our project forward and see it to completion.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Altalogy's turn around time on a given task is extremely impressive. New iterations on the mocks were whipped out within hours of me providing feedback. Every morning I would wake up to find the latest deliverables completed and in my inbox.

On the iOS side, Dawid was building the UI elements and was able to translate the mocks into a functional app prototype well within the scoped timeline and went above and beyond in figuring out a state machine and implementing it without much direction provided by Dan or me. I can't be any more thrilled about how Altalogy works.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Honestly, for the work we scoped and the given timeline we executed in, I think we achieved our goals and stretch goals for the project. We couldn't be any happier with our partnership with Altalogy and will most likely use them again in the future!

Feedback summary: 

Altalogy’s web updates have boosted the level of game hosting, and the homepage now has an attractive design that’s received many compliments. Communicative and transparent, the project manager ensured a seamless project. In spite of a complex pricing model, Altalogy provided excellent service.

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 of a company that helps moms raise money, using games and online educational tools. We’re based in Atlanta.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Altalogy?

They worked on a game called Gender Reveal, which allows expecting mothers to raise money by having friends and family guess the baby’s gender with cash.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They came into the picture after I had produced an MVP. They helped make iterations for the existing website by optimizing features and updating the design.

Firstly, they walked us through how to optimize our engagement with moms. They strategized a homepage redesign and adding simple features like an FAQ page. They also integrated a payment option through Stripe into the backend, which is how we collect the funds. The site utilizes React for the frontend and Ruby on Rails for the backend. They also used PHP for the admin panel.

What is the team composition?

My main point of contact was Dawid (Co-founder, Altalogy) who served as a project manager, and the team fluctuated around 4 people.

How did you come to work with Altalogy?

They were recommended to me by another company, who had had a good experience with them. I went to them based on her recommendation.

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent around $5000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in April and wrapped up in August 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Thanks to their updates, we’ve been able to host 250 games, which is a considerable increase from before. We’ve also gotten compliments on the design of the homepage. If there were any bugs, they caught them before I did—if a customer found one, I would let them know and they’d resolve it immediately.

How did Altalogy perform from a project management standpoint?

Dawid has been great. While there’s often a language barrier when you outsource, that was not an issue at all. Since Dawid was my primary point of contact, it was easy to keep track of communications and progress. We used Slack and Twilio to communicate.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The constant communication was very impressive. There were even some times when they’d have to check in with me because they hadn’t heard from me. They’re extremely knowledgeable and always abided by a realistic timeline. I didn’t experience any scheduling issues—they were usually ahead of the deadline or they’d communicate to me in advance.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I would appreciate if they had a simpler pricing model. They have developers of various levels on their team, so it makes sense that they’d charge you more for a senior developer than a junior developer. Having said that, it makes it a little difficult for me when trying to decide on the cost of the project.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They’re very competitively priced. While they’re not expensive, they’re not cheap—which is frequently the expectation with overseas providers. For that price, you’ll definitely be getting good quality work.

Make sure that you’re fully fleshing out your concept with them if they’re coming into the project without starting from scratch.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the co-owner of an online marketplace for streetwear and authentic sneakers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Altalogy?

We hired Altalogy to develop the web application platform for our business.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I’m not a very technical person, so I entered into the engagement with only a general idea of the platform and how it should look. We held brainstorming sessions with Altalogy’s team to determine the specific features and flow of the product. Once we agreed to a project plan, Altalogy designed and developed the platform over a series of sprints using React.js. We use AWS to host the platform, and Altalogy added payment and social media integrations. I received several product demonstrations throughout the development process, and they implemented my feedback after each round of feedback. Ultimately, we reached the MVP stage, and we have since continued updating the platform so that it can soon launch.  

What is the team composition?

We have about four people working with our project.

How did you come to work with Altalogy?

We learned of Altalogy through a reference. They are located in the same city as us, so it was quite easy to communicate and meet, which was important to us.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent approximately $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began in November 2018 and remains ongoing. If the launch of our web application goes well, I expect us to work with Altalogy again to build a mobile app as well.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They have delivered great work so far, and they provide outstanding support when we need it.

How did Altalogy perform from a project management standpoint?

We didn’t experience a single delay during the development process. They accomplished everything on time. I’m pretty old-school, so I managed the project from our end in Excel spreadsheets. We met every week or two, so I was always updated regarding their progress.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Altalogy has a professional team, and they honor their promises. If they committed to finishing something, they completed it by the appropriate date. They also offered smart ideas to help build out the platform. I’m not technology savvy, but Altalogy helped me understand how things worked and what could improve.

Are there any areas they could improve?

If I was a developer myself, I might be able to critique them better, but from my current point of view, they accomplished everything we needed of them. It was a pretty straightforward engagement.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Altalogy is deserving of your trust. If you work with them, you can expect results you’ll be happy with.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder of KYKS — Keep Your Kids Safe. We help children get off and on the correct school buses or go home a pre-determined way that their parents have assigned.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Altalogy?

After having a poor experience with another developer, I hired Altalogy to fix our software program and have it work the way it was intended.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our previous developer crashed our system right as we were preparing to release our product with a group of schools. Altalogy corrected everything in four days. They repaired the database and our AWS server, and they fixed a lot of the framework and the user experience. Further, Altalogy made some edits to the design—making it softer to not look so archaic—and they added several time-saving features for the end user. We continue to work with them to maintain the system. 

What is the team composition?

I coordinate with one project manager and two developers.

How did you come to work with Altalogy?

They came as a recommendation from an entrepreneur friend of mine.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent less than $50,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began in August 2018 and remains ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

If it weren’t for their swift development work, we would have been out of business. They managed to step up when another provider failed to do so. They helped us retain our existing clients and add a few others, and our system has experienced no problems. That’s a testament to their work.

How did Altology perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been far more communicative and transparent than our previous vendor. We have weekly stand-up meetings through video calls and otherwise share notes through Slack and Trello. They meet all of their deadlines, and they’ve been wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re problem-solvers. Very little is out of the realm of possibility for them. They do their best to meet my needs, and they are clear if they can’t. I appreciate that level of honesty and communication.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, they’ve done nothing but impress me so far.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I’d advise future clients to do their homework on all of the vendors they consider. Ask the difficult questions and look at their portfolios because that’s how you’ll determine if your chosen vendor can handle your work.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO and founder of FoodGarage, a food order pickup technology company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Altalogy?

We provide online access to order pickup by pairing our online technology with a customizable locker system. We needed additional development support for our app as we grew.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Altalogy provides additional development support to build and manage our app, working with React, GraphQL, and Node.js. We jointly developed a scope of work that articulated the challenges we were facing and the how Altalogy could help us address them. We identified a number of activities that they could take over from us including the UX and UI for our platform. They also troubleshoot.

The online platform connects users with restaurants who place completed orders in lockers for pickup. The app provides an overview of restaurant takeout order status. It relies on SMS notifications through which users and restaurants can communicate directly about the status of the orders.

What is the team composition?

We work with the owner and a programmer.

How did you come to work with Altalogy?

Their CEO messaged me about their services on LinkedIn. I often get offers like that. The reason I chose Altalogy was their level of transparency and honesty. My investors were opposed to outsourcing given past bad experiences they had had. I made the executive decision to work with Altalogy because they offered to work with us at no cost at first as a trial. I couldn’t pass up that opportunity and they very quickly demonstrated their value added. As a result, I was able to earn the investors’ trust and we started our collaboration with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent more than $3,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in April 2018 and it’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

If I was rating them on a scale, their work would be a 10 out of 10. I've never experienced programmers that work to this level. I've worked with programmers quite often and none of them have delivered to the capacity that Altalogy has.

How did Altalogy perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicate via email, video calls, even Facebook Messenger. They use a tool to leave notes in the code so my in-house developer can see exactly where they left off and what they were doing. They communicate daily, not weekly or monthly.

They always deliver on time. If anything becomes an issue, they're willing to assess it. Even after they’ve delivered the product, they provide support to make sure everything is working as promised.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Transparency and honesty are the most important things to me. They let us know where they can help, where they can’t, and are always honest. It feels more like we’re working with friends than with another business.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. If anything, they could grow their team so that they can help more clients deliver value. They have everything that you’d want to have in a business partner.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Trust them. They know what they're doing. They establish a high level of communication and identify the problems you need to solve. They will create a scope of work that clarifies the outcomes and how long it will take to reach them. The way in which they run their operation will get you the results that you want. They do a great job leading the way.

We’ve received positive feedback from our clients as well as startup investors and accelerators, mostly regarding the effectiveness of the platform that Altalogy developed.

How did Altalogy perform from a project management standpoint?

When we began the engagement, I gave them requirements and they delivered after some time. We later added some data scientists on our side and they added backend developers, so we had a lot more feedback. The growth of our cooperation demanded agile integration and we’ve moved into a biweekly sprint cycle. We divide the sprints to more closely cooperate. They’re always responsive and adaptive to us, and they’re able to work on their own.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They work as part of our team, not just a vendor. Their technical knowledge is useful, and they will work at night when we need them to deliver on schedule. I can call them at any time and they will fix any issues right away. They have never left us without assistance.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Sometimes they upload something with small mistakes, though they make any necessary fixes. Furthermore, while we do receive summaries and timetables, they could improve on project management.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Clients should be open to their suggestions because their technical and business expertise helps them give very good feedback. They really know their trade. When we build a new feature, they consider its economics along with the technical issues.

For some clients, the lack of formal organization or structure might be an issue. They’re a good match for startups that don’t have a lot of procedures because they don’t provide reports or metrics at the end of the sprint cycle.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder and CEO/COO of FoodGarage, LLC. We developed a technology called The Yummy Box that stores customers’ orders for pick-up at fast casual restaurants.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Altalogy?

We engaged Altalogy to design and develop our web application for The Yummy Box.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted Altalogy to identify the best way to develop our app and then help build it.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We talked over LinkedIn for months before this project. We had built a sense of personal trust and respect for each other which made the decision to collaborate very easy. They offered to do a trial run for us to see their work, which appealed to our pre-seed investor. Altalogy also demonstrated a high level of communications skills, honesty, and experience in web app development.

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

The project began with a statement of work and an hour-long video call to review PowerPoints. Altalogy made sure that they understood every detail of our vision and our needs before starting work. They then assisted with designing, developing, configuring, and launching our web app.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a project team of four people—including a dedicated project developer who stayed in touch with us daily—that would scale up or down depending on each stage’s needs.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We had a working application for Demo Day which let us win $3,000 in a pitch competition. We’re now preparing for live testing of our system at a local restaurant. Altalogy’s skillful work and timeliness helped bring us to this stage.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Altalogy communicated with us daily, keeping us consistently updated on the project’s status. We used Facebook Messenger for brief but important conversations that needed to take place in real time. They also agreed to complete work using agile methodology; this approach let us quickly build and test different versions of the desired solution.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Altalogy communicated effectively and professionally from start to finish. They were truly invested in our success.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

No, they were excellent web developers who delivered the best possible solution to our business challenge. We’ve never encountered a company that seeks to builds trust and invest in a win-win relationship like Altalogy.
