"Hiring tons of killer engineers based in NYC or another big city is very expensive. At the beginning of our company's journey, we didn’t have the funds for that — it was way out of our price range. Instead, we worked with Apiko, a web and mobile app development company that helped staff an incredible offshore team. Without this team, Hive wouldn’t be where it is today. Now that we’ve just closed our Series A, we’ve been hiring engineers left and right to work hand in hand with our offshore team, and we actually brought some of our top Apiko engineers to visit our NYC office recently." said John Furneaux, Founder of Hive, for Forbes. https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbestechcouncil/2019/12/30/from-five-to-5...

Plio | Regulatory compliance and quality improvement made simple Image

Plio | Regulatory compliance and quality improvement made simple

Plio is a virtual assistant that automates key tasks, streamlines improvement processes, and helps compliance managers to run more effective compliance programs. 

Our client wanted to build up a program used to continually track, monitor, and audit whether business processes are aligned with applicable laws, organizational

policies, and the standards of consumers and business partners. Within Plio, the software functionality goes far beyond a standard compliance program. Such a system had to provide a convenient way to control, share, and audit your compliance documents.

Designed for regulated companies and compliance consultants, Plio lets you:

  • Create and maintain a standards book for your key processes and policies

  • Quickly and easily access all of the necessary information that relates to a specific compliance standard and take some actions if needed

  • Conduct a real-time messaging dialogue around each specific business process

  • Streamline the tracking of corrective actions within this process

  • Introduce a continuous improvement approach to the business.

The Plio software helps you avoid this by streamlining and automating the tracking of process problems (nonconformities), risks and key goals. It helps you bring a structured approach to management into your firm and run this with the minimum of administrative effort.

As a result, Apiko has developed a compliant management app called Plio - cross-platform software that gives users a private cloud database with a document management system and a highly customizable layout.

    Work order management Image

    Work order management

    Our client's idea was to develop a custom B2B facility management system that would automate the workflow between organizations and service providers, without buying expensive and complicated software. Now it's an all-in-one tool where companies can create work orders, manage invoices, choose suppliers, and track reports about the work done.

    We created software to simplify a complex process with the

    goal of creating an environment where the work is reviewable, repeatable, and automated by providing a consultative approach to understanding a client's current situation, collaborating with them on solutions, and then executing on the plan.

    Carpe Datum | Business intelligence tool for veterinary clinics

    The app is now in beta mode, and the team performed extremely well in the development. JSSolutions has been responsive, and they follow through with their commitments. Although the expected deliverables have been met, the engagement is expected to continue for the long run.

    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 work for Canary Office, heading the whole organization. It's a small startup at this point.

    We do a few things, including invoicing. We enable small contractors and small shops to run their businesses without having to worry about generating invoices. We also gather reviews for our clients into one place so that our clients can see all of their online reputation review rankings. When there are negative reviews or any issues that their customers are noting about them online, they see it in one place and react to it quickly.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with JSSolutions?

    We were trying to create an app that would take all of those reviews and centralize them so that our client can see their online reputation.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    JSSolutions provided the full development and testing for the application. The created a service-side for the solution that would gather the reviews into the central location. Then, they created a client-side which would interact with the server to pull data for a specific client and place it on their phone.

    We decided to outsource the work to JSSolutions because of timing. They had the experience, the software, and the technology. The whole project flowed faster with them doing it instead of me doing it myself. I provided a complete set of requirements for them to follow which outlined all of the features I wanted.

    From a high-level, we were looking to enable a user to set up links to their social media profiles through the app. They would put in the URL of the profile, and the app would pull all of the reviews from those pages. The app would then show all reviews and the user would be notified quickly of negative reviews.

    JSSolutions used React Native for the development, and there were 3–4 team members working on the project. The composition of that team was consistent.

    How did you come to work with JSSolutions?

    I had a friend that knew them. I did consider an outsourced team, but the team I was considering was already working somewhere else full-time. I chose JSSolutions for timing reasons.

    How much have you invested with them?

    We have spent between $10,000 and $50,000 on the project.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    The project began in March of this year. It took about three months for the first beta version to come out. Now, we're in beta, so we're working through some of the bugs and things like that.

    The engagement is ongoing, but the deliverables we agreed to have been met. However, as with any software project we have the maintenance. I think we're going to be engaged for the long run, either way.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    Not yet, because we're in beta mode. It's not fully released. It's released, but just a few people know about it. Not everybody.

    How did JSSolutions perform from a project management standpoint?

    They did very well. I was able to work with their lead in terms of requirements and things I wanted, and they were able to give them to the team to develop.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    For the most part, they're responsive. They follow through with their commitments. Those are the two things that come to the top of my mind.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    I can't think of anything right now.

    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 managing director of a web consulting agency in Melbourne, Australia. I have a few internal projects that I manage and I do development work for clients.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with JSSolutions?

    We had an MVP for a product idea, and we’ve used JSSolutions for a number of other projects. They’re the developers we go to when we have an interesting concept that needs work. I’ve also used other developers for myself and my clients.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    They exclusively handle app development for us on the Media JS platform. They are very strategic thinkers. My lead developer really excels at thinking through business problems. Often, people who write code have little connection to the problem. I’ll come up with an idea of what I want to solve along with some mockups. My lead developer will change them and come back with suggestions. I appreciate that. The guy who runs JSSolutions is great at sharing ideas. I’ve worked with 8 developers over the years, 2 of whom work for me full-time. I’ve only worked with them on JavaScript projects.

    How did you come to work with JSSolutions?

    We hired them through Upwork. We slowly brought more work to them because they did well with smaller projects.

    How much have you invested with JSSolutions?

    We’ve spent $150,000 over the course of our relationship.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    They’ve been my primary developer for the past year and a half. They’re a core part of my business, and I continue to work with them.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    I do a lot of consulting, and they help me map the process. I juggle multiple clients, but app development is more of a side interest compared to my consulting business. I don’t have any metrics. The quality of their deliverables is very high. The lead developer will often come up with ideas to make things work better and faster. With remote development firms, you often pay by the hour, and they often want to inflate the hours. I don’t get that feeling with JSSolutions. I feel like they try to save time.

    How did JSSolutions perform from a project management standpoint?

    I am in daily contact with them through Trello. They’re among the best I’ve worked with. They’ve very organized.

    What did you find most impressive about JSSolutions?

    The communication is great. I’ve never waited for more than an hour for a response.

    Are there any areas JSSolutions could improve?

    No, I wouldn’t have stayed with them for this long if something was wrong.

    BACKGROUND

    Introduce your business and what you do there.

    FindEd is a startup EdTech company in the UK.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with JSSolutions?

    We commissioned JSSolutions to build an MVP application to test a teacher to school matching concept.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    JS Solutions delivered a Meteor based application, hosted on Galaxy.  The application used AWS for email. JSSolutions developed the backend of our solution. They did not build the frontend, do any design of the frontend, or any design of the functionality of the application. The application is a web app and therefore platform independent.

    How did you come to work with JSSolutions?

    I found JSSolutions while searching online for development companies located in Ukraine and Russia who specialized in the technology that I wanted to use. I had already decided that I wanted to use Meteor as a framework for the application, so I found that they were specalists in that area and therefore considered them.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We began working with JSSolutions in October 2016 and the project was completed in March 2017.

    Feedback summary: 

    With the emergence of Meteor stack as a commonly used software language, the client appreciated that JSSolutions had no issues with implementing the technology to deliver a quality app.

    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're a startup software-as-a-service company that has developed a system for continuous improvement and compliance management. I am a co-founder of the company.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with JSSolutions?

    We needed to find a software house that could develop our software to our specifications for a competitive price. Even though we were building a minimum viable product, it needed to be high quality, and those two requirements usually conflict with each other.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    JSSolutions developed our solution using the MeteorJS stack, which is becoming a well-known technology with developers building our kind of application. It allows for applications to be developed faster than would otherwise be possible.

    How did you come to work with JSSolutions?

    Companies in Eastern Europe or Asia are more likely to be lower priced. We looked for an offshore software development house that could work in a rapid manner. We eventually landed on JSSolutions through the MeteorJS community site.

    How much have you invested with JSSolutions?

    The cost of JSSolutions' work has been approximately $40,000. The original contract was for $17,000 but was increased because of various enhancements and scope creep.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We started working with JSSolutions at the end of April 2016. The site was launched in December 2016 and has been operational since that time.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    We've gone through a rigorous testing process that generated a couple of hundred bugs, issues, and enhancement requests. JSSolutions worked through those in a methodical way, and we crunched them down to only a few issues at the end, achieving high-quality software. We've had a couple of customers using the platform since its launch. They've been very happy with it and found it reliable. Our experience has been good from a quality and reliability standpoint.

    How did JSSolutions perform from a project management standpoint?

    It has been difficult to communicate requirements at times with a few bounces between our teams before everything is nailed down. Offshore development makes this process difficult at times.

    JSSolutions assigned a very good project manager for the duration of our work. He was very conscientious, took a lot of time to understand requirements, and followed through well at his end, making sure that the software was implemented properly.

    What did you find most impressive about JSSolutions?

    JSSolutions has a lot of expertise in the MeteorJS software stack. There were no situations of the team needing to learn a part of the language. Project management was better than expected as well.

    Are there any areas JSSolutions could improve?

    JSSolutions had a higher cost than we expected, given that our initial quote was for a fixed-price contract. One technical decision was taken early on to reduce the cost of development. It involved using a particular user interface framework called Blaise. We eventually chose ReactJS and needed to rewrite about half of the interface, splitting the cost for this between JSSolutions and ourselves.

    Feedback summary: 

    The team delivered a satisfactory product and received positive remarks for their ability to work within strict timelines, which is attributed to JSSolutions’ expertise in Javascript. The team’s understanding of the requirements and ability to turn them into functional products was commended.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    LeanLanes is an innovative concept targeting Product Managers and Product Marketing Managers working on complex customer experiences.

    I'm the founder of the organization and am responsible for business development and vision.

    The solution is being used to develop growth and provide initial evidence for Round A venture capital investment.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    The goal was to achieve as much value from the product whilst ensuring quality in order to deliver a proof of concept into the market. JSSolutions delivered a beta version for us, so we have been able to obtain excellent feedback, and now we are progressing to a second iteration of the product for commercial release.

    SOLUTION

    We chose a Meteor service provider because Meteor is quick and uses a standard underlying language: Javascript.

    We did a 1 week test with 2 providers. I reviewed the quality of work, professionalism of the team, and ability to support our needs.

    Product management took place in Berlin. JSSolutions provided a lead architect also excellent in business, conceptual understanding, and UX. This ensured an easy 2-way exchange of ideas, getting to the features and adding the greatest value quickly.

    The project lasted 7 weeks.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    We were able to test the minimum viable product with 30 product managers. The feedback was extensive and helped us move towards a product that delivers the right value. In the next product iteration we can focus on building only the parts of the product that really add the greatest value.

    The scope wasn't well defined, as we worked Agile. However, what was special about JSSolutions was their ability to identify ways to express user stories in lightning quick timeframes. Their ability to understand the problem, translate it into a meaningful solution, and build it in hours was exceptional.

    Despite initial difficulties, the team provides excellent services due to their technical expertise in Meteor. Their dedicated project manager facilitates communications and helps the project to flow smoothly.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    We are a startup located in Amsterdam. Being a software development company, we are trying to develop solutions for automation of business processes. Currently, we are aiming at small to mid-size businesses, offering them a means to model the processes themselves, using our pay by use platform. In this way, the costs to start working with our cloud platform are absolutely zero.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    As a startup we have relatively little development capacity. Finding and hiring qualified developers is a complicated and delicate process. The challenge is to keep our development up to speed without creating too much overhead in hiring too many (not properly qualified) developers.

    SOLUTION

    We found JSSolutions through the internet on a software services market place. They stated to be familiar with Meteor, our primary development platform. After some initial calls, we decided to give it a try. The scope was not very well determined by then. We just enrolled some task descriptions for developing functionality. We had the idea from the beginning to work with JSSolutions on a continuous base, as long as they performed as desired of course.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    In general, we are pretty happy with JSSolutions. Being a startup, we did not have a clear idea on how to properly outsource effectively. This resulted in shipping complex tasks that were too big. JSSolutions tried the best they could to understand the scope of these tasks, but without day to day communication it was hard to get the results we needed.

    To improve the efficiency, we decided to ship smaller tasks. JSSolutions also offered to assign a primary contact person to communicate with. This is working very nice.

    So far, JSSolutions is thinking along to improve the collaboration and results.
