The Review
Feedback summary: 

Although ANODA’s skilled developers delivered functional code, the team poorly executed the design portion of the project and didn’t provide the iterative process that internal stakeholders expected. Unexpected extra costs and ineffective project management led to a disappointing experience overall.

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 the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ANODA Software Development Agency?

We were searching for a company that could develop our mobile app. The goal of the project was to create a beta version of our application to show to potential customers and investors. It wasn’t about creating a finished application ready for market launch.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We started with the iOS version. We wanted to create an AR application using Apple’s ARKit. The idea was to use some kind of unique scannable dot codes, similar to QR codes, that would enable users to download or view content in AR. Additionally, it was a location-based application, meaning that every piece of content uploaded to it was stored in a specific GPS location.

The project was milestone-based, with four milestones for the app development. We started with the design, but they didn’t make any initial wireframes. We had our first graphic design of the app presented to us, and we thought that it would’ve been a first sketch of the app design and the arrangement of the app. We were actually happy with that, but we expected that there might be a bit more professional design. In the end, it turned out that there wouldn’t be any improvements to that.

What is the team dynamic?

I don’t know how many people from ANODA worked on the project. I was only in contact with a few of them, but it seemed that there were more people involved. Our first contact was a project manager. After having several issues with him, it seemed that he got fired. There was a second project manager assigned to us, and we were also in contact with the founder and CEO of the company, who jumped in several times here and there.

How did you come to work with ANODA Software Development Agency?

We researched Eastern European companies on Clutch and found several companies of interest. We had a three-step selection process. First, we prepared a questionnaire and sent it to every potential partner on the platform. The second step was to have Skype calls with the candidates, discussing several questions we had about the project and the company’s profile. The third and last step was a personal visit to their facilities to get an idea of how they worked, how they organized, and what their culture was.

How much have you invested with them?

My company spent €20,000 (approximately $22,090 USD). 

What is the status of this engagement?

The kickoff was in August 2018, and the end of the project was in March or April 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Describe the impact this engagement has had on your business.

There was always a lack of transparency in terms of what work had been done, what was still to be done, and what we were getting invoices for. We sent them a debriefing at the beginning of 2019, at which point we faced the first major issues with the project.

We got to the point where we more or less had application functionality, but we still had the really poor design. Additionally, we were never officially asked to accept the design. There was not a negotiation process, where we’d ideally be presented 2–3 designs to choose from. We were faced with a design that we ultimately never approved.

We started pitching the app to potential partners and investors, stating that a proper design would cost additional money. We hired an external designer on our own, and they were able to create a proper design for our application. After bringing it to ANODA, they asked for additional money to implement it, which was one-third of the cost we’d already paid.

To give an example of their professionalism as a company, we found our application under a different name on a site where they were showing their references, even though we’d signed an NDA. The design, which is still online, is pretty close to our application design, which was made by the external designer we hired.

How was project management handled?

We had contact on Slack. The expertise of the developers was okay, as far as I was able to judge it. We were in contact with the developers about several functionalities. In my opinion, there was very poor project management on the project. Project managers only showed up when they wanted us to pay additional invoices; it was never about having routine check-ups. 

When we began to struggle with the quality of the design and to complain about the project progress, they offered to do weekly calls to improve the situation, but those calls never took place. The project milestone list, which we created on Excel so that we could check the app’s functionalities, the invoices, and the project’s progress, was always out of date. They repeatedly told us they’d send us a new list. It was never 100% clear to us which functionalities we’d already paid for, or which we had to make additional payments for. It was a very chaotic and unprofessional process. There was definitely a lack of project management.

Is there anything that the vendor did well or that you would consider a strength?

The actual coders were capable in their field. Everything around that was a bit messy.

In what specific areas can they improve?

The design was the most obvious problem. They can’t publish a reference with a slightly different name than that of our app, with a design that comes more-or-less from an external designer we hired, and post it online.

Then, when working on design, the first thing to do is make some kind of mockup, and not directly implement the design on the application framework. They didn’t ask us to approve the design before moving on to the next step. We were constantly talking about the possibility of working on the design, so we thought that that might be some kind of development process, and that it was just a rough framework of the app design, but we were never asked for final approval.

In the end, we had an app with functionality that more or less met the requirements — that’s the reason why I actually give credit to the coders themselves — but we had a really messy design. After the application was 60% done, they added a lot more cost to redesign it, which wasn’t in our budget. It was very disappointing working with them, given how their project management worked and communicated with us. The project management only showed up when they had another invoice for us. The organizational stuff never took place.

What advice do you have for clients with similar needs to yours?

I’d recommend to anyone working with them to have clear project management, to have control over objectives and key results, and to never make a payment in advance. In the end, it can be messy to work based on trust and to make payments in advance. We thought that there would be some improvements and more work on the design, but it turned out that that was it. Our money was gone, and the design was bad. It’s important to clearly control the results and the work that will be done for the money.

Feedback summary: 

While app development is still in progress, ANODA Mobile Development Agency's team has exhibited an effective workflow so far. They're well-organized and communicative. Their dedication to the project and the client's success was evident throughout. 

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a travel app for people who want to experience the journey as much as the destination.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire ANODA Mobile Development Agency?

Initial frame work and development of the app

What were your goals for this project?

To get a MVP version of the app and see where we would need to rethink user flows, data capture and publishing

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We used UpWork and put out a tender. Anoda was one of many who responded. They included their portfolio of work and laid out their processes and were upfront with where we could get to with our initial budget. Their communication was excellent and I appreciated their honesty.

Describe the project in detail.

The initial part of the project was wireframing. While other companies just said "we can do this, no problems", Anoda made sure that we worked through the wireframes first to understand the cost and complications of developing the app before they would quote for the actual development cost.

Once we were happy with the wireframes they provided a document that broke down the development into stages and the hours / cost of each stage. This helped us in the financing of the development over a 9 month period. A Slack was set up for easy communication and we also spoke via video conferencing every other week or as needed.

What was the team composition?

We had a project manager, a lead developer and a development team who worked on the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Right now we have the base line of an app. There is still development work to be done to get it to a position where we can release it and it can be a useful tool for travelers. Funding on our end is now the issue and we have to look at other options for development.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was very well organised from Anoda, and very clear. I think we frustrated their process more than anything with delays.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They cared, and their communication and workflow were simple and effective.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Only from our end in terms of communicating the purpose of the app and being a little bit better at asking/negotiating for what we wanted.

As a direct result of ANODA Mobile Development Agency's efforts, the time taken to generate a report improved immensely. The team worked together cohesively to deliver a polished product. Customers can expect phenomenal communication and a brilliant team. 

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

My company provides Pre-Purchase Survey & Mechanical Inspections, including Insurance Surveys to my customers purchasing boats in Australia. We inspect on-site, and create professional reports that can be used assessment and negotiation of marine pleasure crafts. I am the founder of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire ANODA Mobile Development Agency?

I hired ANODA to design and build my in house application from scratch. I did not have any plans, just a vision for what I wanted the app to be. My challenge was that there were no applications currently that could include all the time saving and design/flow ideas for writing reports, and output a professional report in the style I wanted.

What were your goals for this project?

Create an application that makes my job quicker, easier and more accurate, whilst keeping an easily accessible database of past vessels inspected.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Selection was done online. Originally I scouted the platform "UpWork" and found ANODA to have very high ratings. I received quotes from 2 companies in Australia, then went online and received another 2 quotes from companies online. I picked ANODA based on their past work, professionalism and reviews found online.

Describe the project in detail.

The project consisted of building an iOS application from scratch. - Design, including wireframes for the entire project - Development of manuals, detailing the features in the wireframes - Development of the app as per wireframes. As development came together a number of things were changed along the way - Bug fixes and updates as the application was tested over the course of 3-6 months The application is quite comprehensive. It has the ability to create a customisable report from a base template that a PDF is generated from to be sent to the customer. Features such as base templates, photos, defects, ability to edit photos inside the app, automated fields, database of reports, cloud uploading, exporting to PDF and sharing, customisable signatures and more. ANODA was responsible for suggesting improvements to all of my original ideas/strategy which they have done with an excellent result. Th ne continuous support has been fantastic.

What was the team composition?

The team consisted of two parts: 1. Design 2. Development Throughout both stages, I was assigned a project manager who led the team. I would make contact with them weekly and they would update me on what was going on with the project. I believe there is a number of team members working with the project mangers, but am unsure as to how many.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The main outcome was time-saving, in which the time taken to generate a report has been considerably improved. I would say a 20-30% increase in efficiency overall, as well as features to label the reports more thoroughly and generate them with less mistakes. The application had minor bugs and flaws that were all overcome before leaving this reveiw.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The entire team as a whole performed brilliantly. There was excellent communication along the whole project. Every time they were taking a schedule holiday I would be told with ample notice. We used a combination of Slack for workflow, Crashlytics for app testing and Gitlab for code sharing. ANODA was great in taking on feedback and being fair. There was a particular glitch that took some time to fix, and we would have regular meetings until it was rectified. Although I was initially nervous there may be a language barrier, the team were very intelligent and I was quite impressed with how they interpreted all my request and also took on feedback. I do not feel there were any issues created by a language barrier, only things that would have come up regardless due to the complexity of the application.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The strengths of the company are creating quality applications. They have created something which I am very proud of, and interpreted my vision as a whole. Sure, there were times when I was asking for the "impossible", but they would always find a way.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I don't believe there were any areas I would change. Sure, as time goes on I will realise there are updates I wish to proceed with, but these are ideas I had not thought of until actually developing the applciation and using it.

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 co-founder of ShiftMe Inc.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ANODA Mobile Development Agency?

When we first approached ANODA Mobile Development Agency, we already had the concept in place for our app. It's a B2B platform for hourly employees to easily swap shifts. We hired them to develop our MVP.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We envisioned an app that allows hourly employees working to trade shifts. For larger companies with multiple stores, users can work across locations, rate the stores, and have the stores rate them.

Our team provided ANODA Mobile Development Agency with detailed requirements including documentation and wireframes. Next, both teams scoped out the project and iterated on the wireframes. They developed the MVP as a B2B app on native iOS and Android platforms and did subsequent testing.

What is the team composition?

We worked with about six people, including the project lead.

How did you come to work with ANODA Mobile Development Agency?

My CTO and I screened the team after finding them on Upwork. ANODA Mobile Development Agency was sound from a technical standpoint. We picked the team because they were very transparent. We appreciated that they posted a lot of their work publically and sent samples of their code.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from January–July 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app was functional; we were very happy with the quality and clean setup. The product is awesome.

How did ANODA Mobile Development Agency perform from a project management standpoint?

They provided timelines and stuck to each deadline. However, the team went dark every so often, and communication suffered as a result. Regardless, I’ve worked internationally before; ANODA Mobile Development Agency did a great job with time zones. We communicated via Slack without experiencing a language barrier.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their offering and quality of work created value. The team went above and beyond to ensure the technology worked properly, made sense, was efficient, and had a good UX.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They should address the communication gaps.

Feedback summary: 

The completed iOS application is excellent with high-quality development work produced, and work now taking place on an Android version. The team communicated effectively throughout the work, but needs to improve their attention to timelines and scheduling.

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 owner of an online jewelry store. We've expanded into an app that we offer to our users for meditation.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ANODA Mobile Development Agency?

We needed help with application development for our online store.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We were trying to increase our customer engagement. We had a good number of users that we had gathered from our online store, but we wanted to offer our customers something else to further our brand’s presence. We felt that an app would be a very good way to do that.

It is only an iOS app right now. We determined that an iOS app was a lot more critical to our user base as we are mainly targeting US customers. We have Google Firebase integration with our system that hosts everything and also acts as the interface. Our authors can log in to manage their own meditations and view statistics. It is all managed through Firebase as well as on the application.

What is the team composition?

I worked mainly with Oksana (Founder & CTO, ANODA Mobile Development Agency). I also worked with Roman (Project Manager, ANODA Mobile Development Agency) and another person.

How did you come to work with ANODA Mobile Development Agency?

I had found them through Upwork. I had some sketches and ideas, then posted the project. They presented a very nice proposal including wireframes and screenshots. It was a lot more in-depth than any of the other bids I had received which was one of the main reasons I went with them.

How much have you invested in them?

We have spent around $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in June 2017, and the work is still ongoing in terms of regular maintenance, the addition of new features, as well as work the Android version.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They have done quality work. We finished a month later than anticipated due to changes in specifications, but it wasn’t a problem. They've produced great work, and I like what they do, which is why it's still ongoing.

How did ANODA Mobile Development Agency perform from a project management standpoint?

Things went well most of the time. There were times when communication was a little lacking and I wasn’t really sure what was going on, but it all worked out.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They speak very good English which really mattered to me, as it made me confident that things wouldn't be lost in translation.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I needed to remind them of deadlines. I was never really sure what was on schedule and what wasn’t.

Feedback summary: 

ANODA’s improvements helped boost total app downloads from 500–1,200. They’re reliably available to field questions and work towards solutions. They’re incredibly professional and offer reasonable prices.

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 HomeNotes, and we’re a software company. Our HomeNotes app allows users to take notes and pictures of houses they’re considering. The app organizes that information so users can easily share it with others.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ANODA Mobile Development Agency?

We started developing our app with another company but wanted to bring in a new team in order to make further improvements in a cost-effective manner.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

ANODA improved functions within the original iOS app and developed an Android version. The iOS app was done in Objective-C++, while the Android version uses Java. The web version is coded in JavaScript, and they used Parse for the backend. Improvements include onscreen tutorials, new data fields, and enhancing the general layout and UX.

What is the team composition?

We worked with one of their owners, a lead developer, and a project manager.

How did you come to work with ANODA Mobile Development Agency?

The original company we worked with didn't offer ongoing support and improvement development services. I looked for cost-effective programmers and found ANODA through online research.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent almost $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in July 2016, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve seen downloads increase from 500­–1,200 after working with ANODA.

How did ANODA Mobile Development Agency perform from a project management standpoint?

Our process was different in that I handled most of the project management. However, they did well handling the issues that were assigned to them. We use Slack for communication and originally Redmine for project management, but have since switched to Jira. We also use Google Sheets.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their availability is notable. They’re always available to answer questions and resolve issues.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Sometimes things would take longer than expected. This wasn’t due to them not knowing how to do something, but instead a result of juggling multiple clients. I got the impression they’re struggling with growth issues.

Feedback summary: 

Where other providers only created wireframes, ANODA’s end products require little additional modification. Feedback is almost always positive, and the team, which is quick, thorough, and organized, expertly deals with usability problems and other issues.

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 president of Communify Health, a company that makes medical software.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ANODA?

We have irregular volumes of graphic design work, but our user base is sensitive to visual quality, so we needed a design firm that could help with usability challenges or feature extensions.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

ANODA only does graphic design; they don’t do coding or anything like that. We use their work for web apps and for some websites. Right now, we’re doing a large infrastructure platform for UNC Health Care, and the web app is fairly large scale, so ANODA develops pixel perfect mockups we can take to our clients. They provide the PSD and Illustrator files, and we have an in-house person who splices them.

What is the team dynamic?

We work with Alex Zavrazhniy [Co-Founder, ANODA Mobile Development Agency].

How did you come to work with ANODA?

Our previous designer got hired full time by another firm, so we began looking for another provider. We found ANODA on Upwork and liked their portfolio, so we gave them a few small projects which went well and decided to hire them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent tens of thousands of dollars so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in December 2013, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve received great feedback from our users. Before ANODA, our designers usually just provided wireframes, which was hard for our clients to grasp. ANODA gives us pixel perfect mockups that our clients can easily understand and appreciate.

How did ANODA perform from a project management standpoint?

ANODA is the only external group we hire, so we tend to handle project management since it’s easier for us. We’ve incorporated them into our project management system, but they use their own systems, like Jira and Slack, for internal communication.

They’re good at estimating scale, timelines, availability etc., and we maintain daily interactions when we have an active project.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re thorough and able to deal with complex usability issues before they become a problem. Their products tend to have fewer logical problems than groups we’ve used in the past, and their experience translates into an end product that won’t change much.

Advice for potential customers?

We have a long-standing relationship with them, so we know their workflow, but other organizations may be confused at first. If you need a smaller and more agile process, it can be hard to coordinate with ANODA because they have numerous projects going on at once, which requires foresight and patience. Just be aware that you’ll have to plan the project stages far in advance with ANODA.
