Feedback summary: 

The projects are always completed to a high standard and to the customers’ satisfaction. The team is attentive, detail-oriented, and organized, understanding requirements provided to them very well.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work for a product services company. I am the VP of application services and delivery, overseeing all the projects our team undertake with Aubergine.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Aubergine Solutions?

We started as a development services company, and didn’t have a UX design team. We decided it was better to affiliate with an outsourced team so we would always have resources available.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We were designing a complex financial system with invoicing capabilities. We needed to fit a multitude of complex functionalities and information into a single screen, while not making it too complicated. We also needed to ensure that the information could be filtered according to different use cases.

Aubergine started by building wireframes in order to see if the workflow and use cases were approached correctly. This was followed by visual design. We were given multiple options for colors and layouts for approval, in order to reduce the chance of having to rework items.

We have also worked with them on a couple of mobile apps—a learning system and a platform for pet owners and vets. The task was to understand different user scenarios, creating user-friendly, modern, and easy-to-use products.

What is the team composition?

We use a mix of junior and senior developers from their team, depending on the project. Their project manager will do whatever it takes to deliver a project. We’ve had very complex tasks with one-week deadlines, for which she assigned one senior and two junior designers.

We have mainly worked with junior developers from their team for budgetary reasons, but they were supervised by the senior staff who made sure that design practices were adhered to.

How did you come to work with Aubergine Solutions?

A U.S. customer for whom we developed a mobile app had worked with Aubergine. I really liked their designs, so I decided to start a collaboration. We started out with a small project and increased the scope to the point of having a full-time designer on their team.

How much have you invested with them?

The average cost of their services is $2,000 per month, but it can vary between $1,500 and $3,000. We work on an hourly basis.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Aubergine Solutions in January 2017.  

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Aubergine was able to embed our customers’ design standards while also bringing out their own perspective. My clients appreciate their work and it has helped us get more projects. Aubergine is our consistent UX partner.

I’ve never had to explain requirements multiple times to them, which happened with a lot of other groups. The team is detail-oriented and the collaboration is very smooth.

How did Aubergine Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

I provide requirements for what needs to be built, along with clarifying comments. They work through those requirements and submit designs for me to approve. I receive clickable mockups in InVision, not just screenshots. This is useful for making customers understand what the flow of the product will be. When working with complex scenarios and workflows for each user type, they will often provide video recordings. If the customer doesn’t want to interact with an InVision mockup, they can see a recording of how the UI will work.

They have good time management, respect delivery dates, and maintain good communication. We have regular sync-up calls through Google Hangouts in order to share screens and explain the work.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They do excellent UX work and I appreciate the fact that they can understand business use cases very well. They have performed studies of competitive products and helped us find a good differentiator when building our UX, considering required functionalities, key roles, and objectives. They have a product-building mindset. There’s very little rework involved in our projects, and the team takes feedback well.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Providing HTML and CSS files on top of InVision mockups would make the development process much faster. They’re very receptive and detail-oriented, so I don’t have anything else for them to improve. Whenever my requirements were misunderstood by a junior designer, Aubergine didn’t charge me for the work.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

It’s important to know exactly what needs to be built. For the team to be effective, all use cases have to be considered. If there are any ambiguities in the scope, the client needs to work with the team to clarify them.

Feedback summary: 

Because of their usable, distinctive designs, the products attracted a large user base and earned a solid reputation. Aubergine impressed with their deep UI/UX expertise, adaptive project management, and innovative concepts. The agency excelled at refining complex solutions.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder and CEO of Truecom Telesoft, a startup based in Ahmedabad, India. We focus on telecom software and devices.

We develop solutions for public Wi-Fi systems at hotels and airports, including one-time password (OTP) systems and the insular components around them.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Aubergine?

We were working on a different product that focused on college solutions. It was an enterprise travel system that required us to embed a lot of data in very limited real estate, particularly in mobile apps.

Aubergine helped us solve our user experience challenge. They focused on defining the UI from the end-user's perspective, which they accomplished by taking our inputs, challenging our expectations, and asking why we did this and and didn’t do that. We redesigned various specific items. When we started our current project, we went back to them.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

In our case, Aubergine mainly worked on UX design rather than development. We had an initial meeting during which we summarized our UX design, and then they worked with our HTML developers to account for every pixel and create very detailed specifications. They oversaw the branding, including the color scheme, mood, app layout, and icons. Deliverables were in HTML form.

We have worked on four products with Aubergine. By the time they began the second one, they understood how the entire process worked and what our expectations were. They asked many back-and-forth questions, starting with the product name, the mood, and the target base. Aubergine was involved in branding, but not marketing.

What is the team composition?

We worked with four or five people from their team. Our main discussions were with their lead designers, and the work was completed by their junior designers. For the first five sessions, I and another person oversaw the collaboration. It was also a learning experience for us.

How did you come to work with Aubergine?

We have spent around 1 million Indian rupees. [$15,000 USD]

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Aubergine in December 2016. The last project was finished in August 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We worked with them from our products’ inception, so I have no comparative quality scale. One of the products we’ve built with Aubergine has been sold to a lot of customers and gained a great presence. We were one of the first companies to offer a solution like it, and it was pretty well-designed. The feedback has been good.

How did Aubergine perform from a project management standpoint?

We shared documents using Google Drive, and communicated mainly through Google Hangouts. Because we are in the same city as Aubergine, and not too far apart, we met often to discuss bigger items. The project management was done well, using time sheets for tracking hours. They followed through with every item, and always arranged the next meeting.

What did you find most impressive about them?

There is a large web development ecosystem in my city. I could probably find two providers in my own building, and I have a small team myself for in-house product development. The biggest thing we were missing was design, specifically in the initial phase when we were trying to define the project goals, target users, and product design. That was Aubergine’s biggest strength.

Are there any areas they could improve?

At that time, they couldn’t work on too many projects concurrently. They have expanded since that time and changed their office thrice. There is nothing else I can think of.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Involve them from the start. Many people get to the UI/UX part too late, which is a mistake I made. Clients need to start working with the designer from the beginning, and even take a break from development if they need to. Aubergine’s team is flexible, and they charge on an hourly basis, so it makes sense to involve them from the early stages.
