OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire ASTAQC CONSULTING, and what were your goals?

Initially we were doing the business locally with the help of mouth publicity, but eventually we started getting request from people outside of our reach physically thus we wanted to build a platform which could take care of this. Since our products are home made, organic, mainly consisting of dry foods and pickles, we had to make it from scratch. Which for us was a big ask, after trying out few ready to use platforms we decided to hire a team of experts to do this work for us. We choose Astaqc after reviewing 6 teams, we found the team at astaqc to be always ready to help and available with in 24 hours of the query.

SOLUTION

We provided them a basic requirement from our side, with some reference sites, that's all.

There were 6 people working on the project, 1 Project Manager, 4 developers and 1 QA engineer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any measurable outcomes of the project or general feedback about the deliverables?

We found out that the system they built was from the start mobile friendly which was never a requirement specified by us but they took care of it and most of our requests now comes from there. We are now considering of creating a mobile app to deal with the same.

Describe their project management style, including communication tools and timeliness.

Their Project Management team has been communicating with me regularly, they generally plan a weekly check in with our team and provide a monthly walk-through of the latest development that is made on the site. They demonstrate the functionality along with the tests built to support the system, their ability to create test with continuous development has increased our faith in their work.

What did you find most impressive or unique about this company?

Their response time, every time we have a query or a change request, a representative would always set up a call within 24 hours and respond to our queries.

Are there any areas for improvement or something they could have done differently?

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

My Agency, Sejal Shah Design is an interior design firm working with clients from throughout the country, I get leads via my social profiles and my website. I am the Principal Designer and the Director of my agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire ASTAQC CONSULTING?

Our agency was created in 2015 and ever since then all our leads management was done via calls, messages locally. I was having trouble managing my leads using contemporary phone-based management and wanted to get a website built to make the whole process smooth.

We hire Astaqc Consulting to help us build the project as well as test it thoroughly because we did not want our clients to come across any glitches, which would harm our luxury brand greatly.

What were your goals for this project?

Make the leads management easy and hassle-free, make it possible for us to manage the site once the team hands it over to us, the site should be elegant and classy which would appeal to our clients, and last but not the least it shouldn't have any issues.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I had searched online for someone who would be professional in this work and would provide the highest quality for the work. Astaqc Engineering team took up the responsibility of maintaining the quality of my site, they were prompt to respond and took time to understand my requirement, they made sure I was happy with what they were offering before they even started the work.

Describe the project in detail.

After choosing them we found out that they were specialists in testing which is their first job, thus they did a lot of meetings with me to understand my requirement completely, I provided them with my designs as I wanted the site to look particularly how I wanted it.

Initially, it was challenging for them to accommodate my requirements because implementing it using the cms platform(WordPress) that they were going to use was a little tricky but they managed to find a solution for that. Ultimately they took around 3 months' time to finish this site and handed me over the complete project.

Additionally, they created a set of tests including security and performance that they set up on the cloud for me and I just have to check the results once in a while to be sure everything is good. Now I have a monthly maintenance subscription from them where they make changes to my site as per my requirements as I continuously update my portfolio, but it's not at all a trouble for me.

What was the team composition?

Astaqc team composed of a Project Manager who was dedicated to my requirements and queries along with 2 development members working on the design and coding aspect. The team also had 3 testing engineers, working on the stability, security, and performance of my website.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

After 3 months of work, the initial website was launched, which had all the features that I had asked for, they also made sure I do not have to keep paying for any subscription by fully customizing how my clients communicate to me via my site.

I can now easily manage my leads via the whole automated process setup. My sales have gone up by 400% in the last 6 months just because I am able to manage my active leads in an efficient way.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their project manager was my point of contact, so I did not even have to think about how to reach out, I always had his number and he was available to answer or work on any query of mine, this made the communication very effective because It was challenging for me to communicate directly to the development team and understanding how they are doing the work.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their ability to go out of the comfort zone to help me and my business succeed was stellar. Their job was just to build the platform and hand it over to me, but they took this as an opportunity to make my business successful which eventually paid out really well and I am glad to share my views about their work.

Are there any areas for improvement?

They can work on their business outreach because I found them just because I was looking for a local company where I can actually go and explain my needs. They should definitely expand their business outreach to other countries.

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.
