The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO and President of Meal Genius, a personalized meal planning program that address special nutrition needs. We offer a broad range of products and services in the nutrition industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Alverden Systems LLC?

We had serious issues with poor coding, bugs, and extraneous database tables that prevented us from launching our web application. We’d previously used many other developers, but a lot of work still needed to be done to prepare us for a successful launch.

What were your goals for this project?

The Meal Genius app needs to reliably and efficiently deliver personalized meal plans, matching the users’ parameters. We also needed to remove factors that prevented us from scaling.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were highly rated on the freelance platform we used. Alexander (co-founder, Alverden Systems LLC) took the time to understand the issues we faced, which gave me the confidence to move forward with the project.

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

They did extensive work on our custom web application. They cleaned up poor code and wrote new code. They created design elements, added SEO tools, and implemented new technology. They also moved the app to the Azure hosting platform.

What was the team composition?

Their team consists of a number of highly-skilled members (e.g., database experts, UI developers) who were involved at different times throughout the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I can’t emphasize enough how much they’ve positively impacted my business. We were concerned that the application may never be launched due to the previous coding problems, even though we’d spent over $100,000 on previous developers. When Alverden Systems LLC inherited this project, they were tasked with fixing a lot of issues which they didn't create. They rolled up their sleeves and did what needed to be done. Not only does the app work, they improved its speed.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project was broken into phases with specific tasks to be completed in each phase. There were some unexpected delays due to the previous poor work from other developers. They always kept me abreast of what was happening so I could rest easy. They delivered what I asked at a reasonable cost, and with excellent communication along the way.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team’s extensive knowledge is imperative for any large-scale application. What makes them the best developers I’ve ever worked with is that they’re invested in the successful outcome of the project. They don't just have the knowledge, they have the heart. They truly care about their clients’ satisfaction.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

I can't think of any areas of improvement. They’re a stellar team of people who produce excellent results.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Alverden Systems intuitively understands mobile app dev, quickly finding solutions and developing plans. They’re highly communicative and always available whenever they’re needed. Their backend work is better than their other services, but they still make a great partner.

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 CTO of a company that connects shippers and carriers. If a big merchant needs a freight shipper, they can use our service to find one.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Alverden Systems LLC?

We’d just received our investment and needed a partner to quickly develop our custom app and software.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Alverden Systems LLC works on the back- and frontend for our mobile apps. They used C# and Azure Stack for the backend and Angular for the frontend. The mobile app is in Xamarin for both iOS and Android. There are two apps: one is for the shipper to track and create shipments, and the other is for drivers to accept and log work.

Alverden Systems initially began as full-time developers, but our internal team has recently taken over the bulk of the work. They now work on the projects that our in-house developers don’t have time for.

What is the team composition?

We have one main point of contact.

How did you come to work with Alverden Systems LLC?

We found them on Upwork. We considered numerous agencies, but we liked how Alverden Systems communicated. They seemed to immediately grasp what we wanted to accomplish, so we hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $78,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been partners since April 2017, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They developed the apps incredibly fast—within six weeks. There were a few bugs, but they fixed any issues. We’re highly satisfied with their work, especially the backend.

How did Alverden Systems LLC perform from a project management standpoint?

At the beginning of the partnership, we talked about every thirty minutes. Now we meet once a day; we’re in constant communication. They’re always available, even on weekends. We sometimes use Trello, but they have their own project management system to assign and track tasks.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They intuitively understand the field. I don’t have to spend much time explaining our projects; they just know what needs to be done and how to do it. I give them a basic idea, and they figure it out from there.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their mobile app development wasn’t as good as their backend. It was okay, but it took longer to make.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

If your backend is in C# or Azure, you’ll want to hire them. Be involved and collaborate because that’s how to optimize the partnership.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a partner at an investment management company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Alverden Systems LLC?

They provide web development services for us, including work on internal business intelligence (BI) tools and some custom plug-ins for Adobe apps. 

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a long-term reliable partner who could not only provide custom app development services to fit our needs, but could also support our existing infrastructure. Alverden manages to do both.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We interviewed a few developers, but the skills, capacity, and previous experience of the Alverden team best satisfied our requirements.

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

The technology stack includes ASP.NET, C#, Python, server-side JavaScript, and an SQL Server database with corresponding integration, reporting, and analysis services. They provide additional support for our web development and extract, transfer, and load processes.

What was the team composition?

There are six members on our Alverden team: a project manager/team lead, three developers, one HTML coder, and one UI/UX designer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The project is somewhat confidential, but they essentially help us attract new clients and develop additional features for existing ones. They are also involved in the day-to-day tasks and emergency issues related to our internal BI tools, which was very time consuming for us in the past.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We began with an Agile project management process in Visual Studio Team Services to track iterations, user stories, and tasks, but we ultimately ended up using an ad-hoc process that was a mixture of Kanban and Scrum and better addressed our needs and business processes. We currently have regular meetings with the project manager and communicate directly with developers on occasions when we have urgent tasks.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We can contact them any time, day or night, and be assured that they will address all issues promptly.  

Are there any areas where they can improve?

They can improve their Python expertise, even though it is slightly outside their main technology stack. Other than that, we are fully satisfied with the quality of their work.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We had previously worked with Alverden. They did a really great job on the first project, so we naturally reached out to them for the second one.

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

It was a multi-stage project that took roughly six months to complete. They scoped out the project in detail, laying out the timeline and process from start to finish in a way that was very easy for us to visualize and plan for accordingly on our end.

What was the team composition?

We had one main point of contact throughout the project.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the vice president of the contractor business segment at Dodge Data Analytics.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Alverden Systems?

We were developing an application for the construction industry and wanted help with the overall design and development of the products.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had a rough set of functional requirements. We asked for their feedback on specific areas and reworked functionality based on their input. Then, they oversaw the code development. The software itself is designed for general contractors and subcontractors. It allows users to review projects based on various descriptors, such as cost and supporting documentation. They can then bid on the projects they want to work on.

We used a scrum system to build the app. We defined the action items for each two-week sprint and followed up with retrospectives. They finished sprints quickly, which allowed us to work on items earlier than we originally planned.

We wanted an angular framework for the UI and had a lot of questions. We had some preliminary experience with AWS but wanted to know more about DynamoDB technology versus the typical Relational Database Service. They helped us put together a combination of DynamoDB for some portions of the application and a typical SQL database for others. They also helped us understand Lambda.

What is the team composition?

Andrei (Technical Lead, Alverden Systems) operates as our project manager. I’m not sure how many members of their team are responsible for the coding, but Andrei was knowledgeable and made the process transparent. He oversaw their team and updated us regularly.

How did you come to work with Alverden Systems?

We already had a relationship with them when I joined the company.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent somewhere between $70,000–$100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

They started working with us in late 2015 and we finished the app in June 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They made great suggestions and we ultimately expanded the scope. Everything about the process exceeded our expectations. We were on schedule, under budget, and every metric was stronger than anticipated. We thought we would need a major secondary release to fix issues and upgrade the product, but the UI is intuitive and the overall functionality fulfills all of our typical users’ needs.

How did Alverden Systems perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re probably the best group I’ve ever worked with. They deliver on time and give us exactly what we want. I can’t think of a single time we had a problem with them. They kept the project moving quickly and we plan to work with them again.

We used OnTime to set sprint definitions. They would interact with the system and check action items off the list as they completed them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re very easy to work with and intuitively understood what the application should do. They foresaw issues and solved problems we didn’t even know existed. They were very competent and let us operate at a much higher level than we had with other projects.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. We’re completely satisfied and would use them again in a heartbeat. We wish more of our vendors worked like them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Make sure they really understand your requirements, goals, and scope. Treat them like project managers, not just as programmers. You won’t have to micromanage them.

The project was delivered on time, and I appreciated their developer’s experience. We are happy with the results, and we will approach Alverden for any similar projects in the future.

As with any software project, we experienced some issues. The turnaround time for fixing them was amazing.

How did Alverden perform from a project management standpoint?

We had in-person meetings and mainly used Jira for task tracking. We didn’t have any communication issues.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They stand out in terms of experience and communication. We have had issues with resources becoming unavailable when using other providers, but this was never the case with Alverden. They’ve been open to addressing any issue.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There have been cases when they didn’t have the necessary resources to accommodate us. Expanding their team would be an improvement.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Clients should keep track of vendors, even if there is a level of trust. I acted as the project manager in our case.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are very reliable and professional. They did not disappoint us.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t think there is any place for them to improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I would recommend them for any technical projects.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of an independent software developer and vendor. We provide time recording and management solutions for software development teams.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Alverden Systems LLC?

We needed to bring in extra resources to finish developing certain aspects of our software.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Alverden functions as part of our team. They came in during the early stages of development for a particular software. Our process starts by identifying a problem, describing the requirements, and developing solutions. Next, we move to implementation, testing, and finally product introduction. Not all tasks were performed by them, but they’re involved in our full lifecycle of software development. We’re working with technologies like .NET, Microsoft SQL Server, and HTML web services.

What is the team composition?

We work with two developers.

How did you come to work with Alverden Systems LLC?

We wanted a long-term collaboration and conducted a vetting process. We considered the individual skills and professionalism of Alverden’s developers. They fit very well with our team and company culture.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in September 2015 and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re satisfied with their contributions as the quality of their work is always excellent. They wouldn’t still be on our team if they weren’t a valuable asset. We recommend working with them.

How did Alverden Systems LLC perform from a project management standpoint?

We’re developing a time recording software, so we so do time recording internally. We effectively utilize Scrum and agile methodologies. Work is estimated in story points and assigned to team members. In every sprint, someone falls behind while most others complete their goals. We measure sprint efficiency in correlation with the individual’s time to see if the relation between the original efforts and the time spent is in a healthy state. That balance is in perfect condition.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re reliable. Alexander (Managing Director & Co-Founder, Alverden Systems LLC) came up with fantastic ideas on how to improve things. He has the communication skills necessary to work towards a creative vision. They’re fantastic team members and it’s a great collaboration.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I don’t have any negative feedback.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Alverden finished a series of two-week sprints within time and resource constraints. They deliver consistent work and are responsive and collaborative. Verbal communication with written confirmation of tasks keeps the process running smoothly.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We provide custom learning solutions for large companies. I’m the CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Alverden Systems?

We were developing a performance support application for nursing education and needed a web application developed from an existing prototype.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We gave them the specifications for the system using MVC architecture and they did the majority of the programming for us over a two-year process. The system uses MS SQL database on the backend that uses C# for programming, with associated Razor and JavaScript aspects. We just started marketing the system to hospitals.

What is the team composition?

I interacted primarily with the Alverden project manager. We’ve had two project managers over the two-year period, and the transition between them was smooth.

How did you come to work with Alverden Systems?

I found them through Upwork. I searched for companies that had experience in the MVC framework we wanted to deploy. I narrowed our options down based on reviews. We started on a small scale with them. They did a good job, so we expanded our relationship over time.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested within a $50,000–$200,000 range.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started in late spring 2016. The bulk of the work is done, but we still work with them for new releases and updates.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We typically do two-week programming sprints with a set of actions we want to get done in that period. Our primary metric is based on items they finish in sprints. We balance our programming hours against our resourcing. As long as they get a sprint done on time and within resource constraints, we know it’s working well.

How did Alverden Systems perform from a project management standpoint?

They do a great job. We primarily use Visual studio for project management. They’re responsive and collaborative. If I need anything special, they do it. Working with them is a good experience. I’ve worked with lots of people over the years and I’m happy with them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They always get the specified work done correctly, on time, and within budget. They stay within scope and are consistent.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It’s not really something I would tell them to change, but English is not their first language. They certainly speak English better than I speak any other language. We’ve had a few small glitches because of language issues, but they are always minor. We adapted by communicating verbally and following up with written confirmation to make sure everybody understands each other.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

This is true of working with any contractor, but the clearer you can make specifications, the better your results will be. It helps to have both written and verbal confirmation of what you want UI and functionality to look like.
