Feedback summary: 

The partner is pleased with the work and how it has met expectations. ASTAQC CONSULTING is quick and proactive in tackling requests. Despite a time zone difference, they're always responsive, meet deadlines, and make themselves available. Friendliness is a hallmark of their high-quality 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 founder and owner of SareFood.com LLC, a meal delivery platform. We connect customers to local chefs in and around the St. Louis metro area to provide preferred meal delivery services.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ASTAQC CONSULTING?

We’re an e-commerce company. As part of our quality assurance practice, we wanted to hire an outside consultant to test our website, transactions, features, etc., and to give us input relating to site bugs.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I reached out and told them about our business and requirements. We had a few sessions around expectations. As their team completed tests, they sent us emails with links to the test cases. These cases describe whether the test passed or failed.

Our team worked with them on several smaller projects as well. They recently completed testing on a subscription process on our website and are on standby right now. I let them know if there’s work and there most likely will be. Based on the test results, the next step is to fix the bugs and then test again.

What is the team composition?

There’s one person coordinating the work and 1–2 testers depending on how complex the work was.

How did you come to work with ASTAQC CONSULTING?

I talked to several different companies I had found online. I felt the founder and owner of ASTAQC CONSULTING was knowledgeable and sincere in his approach so that’s why I gave him the project.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested between $6,000–$10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in November 2017, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I'm pleased with their work. Our development team likes working with them because they’re friendly. When we need something, they jump on it quickly. I haven’t had any situations where they were complacent or non-compliant about working on our requests.

How did ASTAQC CONSULTING perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve met all the deadlines so far. I haven’t had a situation where they committed to a date and were grossly wrong about it. They’re pretty on top of things.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I like how they’re always available. There’s a time zone difference but they make themselves available. Their response time is always within 24 hours or less.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could teach their customers how to do more automation testing. We can’t do manual testing all the time. I’m pretty sure they have the knowledge and experience but maybe they could be a little more assertive when it comes to selling their automation services.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Reach out and let them know what your expectations are. Make sure they understand what it is you want. I’m pretty sure they’ll deliver.
