The resulting solution has increased the efficiency and uniformity of internal workflows. asap developers held productive meetings, listened carefully, and didn’t hesitate to ask questions. While their timeline predictions could have been better, the team's resource assessments were helpful overall.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO and one of the co-founders of First Person, a designer storytelling agency. We take care of developing and creating our customers’ strategy, customer journey, applications, physical events, presentation materials, and brand design, among other things in order to help them achieve their goals.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire asap developers?

For what projects/services did your company hire asap? We developed a project management tool internally and hired asap to synchronize the new pieces of software we use; we use tools such as Asana, Dropbox, Google Drive and Slack in our daily work. This allows us to track every aspect of the project and use all of the auxiliary tools, making sure everything is synchronized properly.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to have a single source of truth to manage all projects. This makes it much faster and easier to create and find a project. Our application binds our workload together and asap helped with some of the integrations, which allowed us to use of all our tools at the same time.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We spoke to different companies and were looking for one that was easy to work with and communicate but also cost-effective as this is an internal tool and we have to pay for it ourselves. Ignacio introduced us to the asap team and the fact it was a remote one was a big factor as it fulfilled the cost-effectiveness condition.

We have worked with many remote teams in the past and we thought asap was better managed as they have better communication and provide constant updates on what’s going on.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Every time we create a job, our application (Mission Control) creates a unique job number as well as all the information for that job. It also allows us to use all those auxiliary tools, it changes the status of the job as it moves through the pipeline, and archives all of our projects.

We’ve had two iterations with asap on this project so far. They rewrote the integration for Asana and wrote the one for Exelo and are currently working on integrating a third tool. They’ve also helped us with other issues, like a Google update that caused one of the integrations to stop working.

What was the team composition?

We had a project manager, an account manager and two developers (Fabricio and Gonzalo) working with us, with a third one added recently. The work with them has been pretty seamless as the developers are very good at sharing information and don’t require us to repeat details to each member.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business? It saves tons of hours but also ensures consistency (which means our staff doesn’t have to remember every detail of the process). We don’t depend on existing software to do everything for us, we have our own, which has been really nice and has added flexibility.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Communication was great, we have great team calls where I outline what we’re trying to do and the team asks any questions that may arise later on. The only thing I could mention on the downside would be time estimates, which I’ll come back to below.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Definitely the quality of the work. They are excellent at consistently providing high-quality work. They’re also really good at listening. They’ve provided assessment for other projects and how hard it would be to carry them out, which has been really helpful when it comes to deciding if it’s worth doing. I think they’re very good partners.

Are there any areas for improvement?

As I’ve mentioned, the only thing I can think of is their time estimates. They are usually low, though not by much. I understand that it is difficult to accurately estimate how many hours a project will take and don’t think much can be done about it. The only real friction we’ve had is that sometimes, although there has been no progress, we still get a bill.

But, I think that’s just part of trying to work out a problem. You may put in a lot of hours and see no results until you figure it out. I think just by keeping us informed on this, it would improve. And also, they have been times when they were actually very generous by not charging us until they’ve figured an issue out.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a partner and product manager at WealthSite, a software solution platform for wealth advisors. We set ourselves apart from our competitors by building specific functionality to meet our clients’ needs.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire asap developers?

We hired asap developers to develop new functionalities for our product.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to provide clients with customized solutions quickly.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

About eight years ago, one of our former directors met Ignacio (Author, asap developers) at a conference in San Francisco. They got talking, and the rest is history. I’ve been working at WealthSite for only three years but had the opportunity to work with asap developers at my previous company.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

About three years ago, we reinvented ourselves and migrated our legacy app to a new AWS-based solution with the assistance of the asap developers team. They continue to develop new functionalities for our product. They also configure and upgrade the app, which has helped us adapt to changes in our technology platform and avoid AWS environment issues.

What was the team composition?

I work closely with the lead developer from asap developers. If necessary, more developers come on board. We’ve also required the help of a tester and a UI designer in some cases.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We now have a modern tech stack that has helped us find new opportunities. In addition, asap developers allows us to provide quick solutions suited to our clients’ demands.

We really enjoy working with them and have a solid relationship with their team. It is highly unusual to have such a good long-term relationship with a third-party development team.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We use Trello to manage the development process, including features, functionalities, bugs, and the like. We also rely heavily on Skype for communication. We touch base often to improve our process and make adjustments based on feedback. Aside from a weekly team call, we speak with the asap developers team several times a day.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They have a friendly, talented, and well-rounded team. Furthermore, they’ve gone above and beyond for us, including staying after hours to resolve a specific issue. We consider them an extension of our business and a critical piece of who we are.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Not really, although it would be nice for them to be more proactive. However, this is understandable since they devote themselves solely to the development and do not handle project management.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the co-founder of a web and mobile platform that connects musicians with businesses in the music industry. Our goal is to gather the entire global music industry in one place, making communication easy and quick.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire asap developers?

We contacted asap developers because we wanted to develop a video streaming platform focused on the music industry. They developed web and mobile apps. 

What were your goals for this project?

Our idea was to connect up-and-coming musicians with businesses in the industry and help them showcase their talents. One of our main goals was to build a scalable solution that allowed us to grow and go global.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We met with several development teams, but asap developers stood out because they focused on more than the technical aspects. They gave us strategies for optimizing our product and advice about improving our UX and design. They knew a lot about startups, even recommending materials for us to read.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

asap developers delivered a great tool. It has profiles for musicians, who can upload and share their videos, and industry actors like producers, managers, and recording studios. Their team recommended Elastic Beanstalk and S3, since these technologies are flexible enough to support our growth without implementing changes later. People from across the globe can sign up and upload content.

What was the team composition?

We had three developers and one project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The platform they delivered is the foundation of our company. Without it, we wouldn't exist. The platform runs smoothly, with no problems other than minor bugs that they quickly resolve. Users have responded wonderfully to it.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

After deciding to work with them, we met to discuss the details of the platform, which was extremely useful. They offered a comprehensive service. We worked closely and had no problem discussing requirements or improvements. We met once a week and used Trello and Slack to keep in touch.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The main highlight was their proficiency and knowledge in all areas, which became even more evident as the project progressed. They were extremely trustworthy, ethical, and transparent. They reported the hours spent on our project, but we could also request meetings to discuss the details.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The only thing that comes to mind is their hourly estimates. We resolved this, and it wasn’t a major issue, but there were some significant differences between the estimates and the actual hours worked. Adjusting their estimates, or even giving us a heads-up, would have avoided friction.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder and CEO of Mozzo. We offer a mobile project platform to help professional service providers connect with their clients and sub-consultants.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire asap developers?

As a startup, we decided to initially partner with an established development company instead of expanding our internal team. We hired asap developers to serve as that vendor and accelerate our time to market.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to build a modern, scalable, high-performing mobile app for both Android and iOS.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

A friend of mine recommended asap developers following his own successful project with their team. I held several design sessions with the company’s co-founder, and I quickly felt confident that they had what we needed.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

asap developers began the project by working with my wireframes and prototype in Moqups. Their designer then created a beautiful interface that drove the development of a React Native mobile application. The app integrates with Stripe to accept online payments and with Plaid to verify users’ bank accounts. The app uses Firebase to deliver push notifications and Google Maps for geolocation. The backend was developed with Python, utilizes a PostgreSQL database, and is hosted in AWS.

What was the team composition?

Our core project team consisted of a project manager, a designer, three developers, and a tester. Others would occasionally step in to help with development or testing. For example, a senior architect performed a quality review at a critical design milestone.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

This product now serves as the core solution of our startup. By developing this app, we have successfully demonstrated its value, which has allowed us to secure our first customers and several interested investors. The final product is attractive and intuitive.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We held three stand-up meetings each week and extra meetings as necessary. We communicated well through Jira, Slack, and Skype. My biggest concern entering the project was the time difference between our teams—I’m in California, but they’re in Uruguay—but that quickly became a non-issue. The team is highly responsive and successfully tracks all actions through Jira. We’ve had no complications whatsoever. My confidence in them has never wavered.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team’s honesty and integrity is astounding. The staff is very receptive to feedback and quickly adjusted to changes. I found no big egos—instead, I found great partners working hard to understand my vision.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, nothing in particular needs improvement. I would challenge asap developers, however, to work hard to maintain their culture and high level of service as they grow. From my own experience, that’s not easily done, but they seem to be successful so far.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the senior marketing manager for Alooma, a modern, cloud-based data pipeline that enables companies to bring all of their data sources into any data destination.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire asap developers?

We had a lot of web projects in the backlog and very limited internal web development resources, so we hired asap developers to help us.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed a go-to source for all our web development needs. Our website is our primary source for new customers, so we needed to complete tasks swiftly and iterate quickly.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I interviewed around five other agencies, but the people at asap developers were the most knowledgeable, friendly, and understanding of our needs—it was an easy selection to make. After selecting them, they spoke to our technical team, who also gave them the green light without hesitation.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They work on a plethora of tasks for us, from building out our CMS using Netlify to creating landing pages, one-off site changes, mobile optimizations, migrations, and more. I provide requirements and design files as necessary and asap developers are able to translate those specs into a final product very quickly. They manage projects from start to finish, communicate any issues that arise, and suggest alternatives, if necessary.

What was the team composition?

They provide us with a project manager, one to two developers, and a designer depending on the tasks.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Having them on board makes us able to quickly turnaround a variety of web tasks, which has helped substantially with website conversions, traffic, and engagement. The results have exceeded my original expectations. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Project management is handled very smoothly. We use Trello for managing tasks, Slack to communicate regularly, and weekly calls to discuss current and future projects as well as any bottlenecks or blockers.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their ability to quickly deliver projects and adapt to our needs is remarkable. We’re a startup and we like to move quickly; asap developers matches those needs perfectly. They also communicate very well and are transparent.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Nothing comes to mind. I've been completely satisfied thus far.

I’m the founder and president of P.E. For Hire, an online marketplace where architects, engineers, and contractors can immediately connect with licensed professional engineers ready to bid on their projects for hire.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire asap developers?

I needed to build and maintain a complex web application. This included advisory services and documentation.

What were your goals for this project?

My objective with this project was to build a platform that would be scalable and able to support the demand of a large market.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I selected asap developers through thorough research since I’m also a developer and have high standards. asap developers stood out as being the most knowledgeable and experienced vendor.

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

asap developers began by identifying all the requirements and use cases. Following that, they documented all the requirements for the database and application layer and went on to build the environment and infrastructure. This included a development, testing/staging, and production environment on Amazon Web Services. They designed and built a highly-scalable SQL database and application layer in AngularJS and .NET.

What was the team composition?

The team consisted of five members—a project manager, a lead developer, a backend/database developer, a frontend developer, and a client service manager. Although each individual had specific roles, they were all experienced in other areas and made significant contributions along the way. It’s a winning team!

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

This project is the core of my business. As a result, we’ve created greater transparency in the marketplace for licensed contract engineers. As of now, this is the only platform that allows members to locate and hire professional structural, civil, electrical, and/or mechanical engineers.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project was managed very effectively. We met regularly and occasionally had brief phone calls to keep the project moving along. In addition, we used Trello to communicate and track each step of the project. Although the team is located in Uruguay, I never experienced a language barrier. In fact, I found them to be very articulate.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

There are many things that I found impressive about asap developers. First, their quality of work far exceeded my expectations. Second, they were highly responsive to my needs. Last, they are more affordable than most companies offering similar services in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

I can’t speak to any significant areas they need to improve. My experience with them has been stellar!
