The CRM system for the consulting company Image

The CRM system for the consulting company

One of the top UK-based consulting companies required updating their internal CRM system. They used outdated MS Access based CRM, which was not suitable for employees. 

We decided to create a new, web-based CRM and migrate all data from the old DB to the new one. Our team created usable UX and beautiful UI applying modern CRM standards. All data has been transferred to the new database.

With the new CRM, users get

easy access to it via the web interface, now it’s much easier to work with it, which saves valuable time of employees.

lifestyle/concierge companies & large blue-chip corporations.


The key goal of this project was to streamline existing business processes and increase their ability to manage data within sales pipeline.

tools.


The team consisted of several members including a project manager and 2-3 developers. Axisbits was able to add resources as needed. We developed the CRM system based on PHP and Yii2 framework and deployed it on servers, so users within the company were able to it sight away.

Coudrees, Fashion Matchmaking Platform Image

Coudrees, Fashion Matchmaking Platform

Coudrees is a French platform that helps people order made-to-measure fashion items online.


Coudrees works with artisans and studios that have strong skills-sets but minimal self-promotion, letting them sell their services on our site but not their actual products.


The client wanted to build a website that would differentiate the product from other platforms, making it clear from the first

landing page that, although Coudrees works with artisans as other marketplaces do, they focus solely on fashion and tailor-made, ready-to-wear products. 


As a result, Axisbits developed and published the project, and now it’s attracting clients from all over France.



Online document signing service Image

Online document signing service

Legacy, paper-based agreement processes are manual, slow, expensive, and error-prone. 

We simplified this process by creating easy to navigate UI/UX design starting from landing pages, to complex flows of documents signing.

There are many handy features: you can set up your profile, draw or upload a signature, create branded email templates, and track the status of document signing.

Having the logo as a

starting point, our designers created a unique design coffee color palette to match the name of the service. We developed a UI kit with essential elements - buttons, inputs, alerts, icons, and backgrounds that we used all across the pages.

As the final step, our team turned designs into clickable prototypes to provide an understanding of the final product’s look and feel to the customer.

PlastPro Doorability - Visualizer Program

Plastpro is one of the top fiberglass door manufacturers in the US. They wanted to replace the visualizer program on our website, which allows users to view what the doors they’re considering would look like on their own houses.


Axisbits built the system that gave us the ability to manage assets and the way that PlastPro creates products for this tool to be very dynamic. Managers can approach the program

directly and visually, as opposed to before when they had to connect with our provider every time there was a problem.


For the backend, we used Yii2 framework, which is based on PHP. The frontend uses JavaScript, HTML, and CSS, among others.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Axisbits exceeded expectations in their delivery of a top-tier frontend that allows users to see the many ways in which they can connect to the system. Their proactive approach resulted in very few bugs. The impressive results create value for cost and supplement continued engagement.

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 CTO of SimplePin, a FinTech company that provides payment processing services to insurance companies. We have different business models, but the majority of our work is payments processing. We provide development services and integrate third-party solutions, like Salesforce and other CRMs. We normally integrate such applications into the API developed by us. As CTO, I’m responsible for design and technical initiatives.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Axisbits?

We’ve hired Axisbits for multiple projects, but the most complex one was probably developing the framework of our website. The site has a custom framework based on Drupal, and it is capable of translating data from our API into documentation. We have a team of Java developers, but we needed to develop the site’s frontend.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Axisbits was responsible for implementing the frontend of the SimplePin website. They created a template, implemented it into the Drupal engine, and extended that template with custom functionalities. I was the architect behind the platform, and I worked on templates and wireframes with my internal graphic designer. The Axisbits developer consulted me on what would and wouldn’t work. The technologies they used included PHP, MySQL, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, and JSON.

What is the team composition?

There was one developer from Axisbits assigned to this particular project.

How did you come to work with Axisbits?

Someone I’m working with referred Axisbits. I tried them on a small project unrelated to the main website, and they provided excellent quality.

How much have you invested with them?

The total cost of their work was around $10,000. However, it’s hard for me to say exactly, as I’ve had multiple budgets for this project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started this project with Axisbits around a year ago. Our most recent complex project was deployed in the spring of 2019. They continue to help me whenever there’s a need.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’m really pleased with the quality. Normally, we’d see about 100 bugs in a project of this size. With Axisbits, I had five issues in total. They helped me eliminate potential issues from the start of the project, and it was all done quickly. We use the site to exemplify the many ways users can connect to our system.  

How did Axisbits perform from a project management standpoint?

I’ve managed projects myself, fulfilling the roles of both product owner and scrum master, so it was easy for me to plan projects with them. Once the concept was finalized within the first week, we created user stories and proposed estimates. We were pleasantly surprised by their rates.

We use Jira and Confluence for task management and documentation. We’re also using a Git repository. Our teams normally have daily 30-minute scrums in the morning to discuss all issues and obstacles. For this last project, we worked under the Kanban method because the sprints weren’t too big.

What did you find most impressive about them?

In terms of quality, Axisbits is one of the best developers I’ve worked with. I only have positive feedback. I also like their technical communication.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The majority of the improvements that had to be made on the project were because of minor oversights in the documentation. The scripts and guidelines didn’t require it, but it could’ve helped. They put the whole thing together, but they weren’t managing the scope or providing testing. In this regard, Axisbits was perfect.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

I believe that anyone looking to hire them will get a perfect project. Without a plan, it won’t be easy, but they could probably handle that part well.

Feedback summary: 

Axisbits exceeded expectations by translating an idea into a functional, modern, and aesthetically pleasing platform. The responsive team fostered an effortless collaboration and met budget and schedule restraints. Internal stakeholders are confident that the platform will attract users.

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 owner of an online education platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Axisbits?

We wanted to create a user-friendly software that would make learning easier for students and teachers.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I provided Axisbits with designs and a general idea of what I wanted, and they developed a website and online platform. They made the platform mobile-responsive. My husband communicated with Axisbits to make sure the server could handle the database and run smoothly.

The team built user portals for students and teachers, enabling students to follow their specific courses and teachers to monitor their lessons and students. They also built an admin portal so that I can create content and deliver it to students and teachers.

What is the team composition?

I worked with Maxim (Founder & CEO, Axisbits), a project manager, a programmer, a designer, a graphic designer, and front- and backend developers.

How did you come to work with Axisbits?

I found Axisbits on Clutch. I'm very appreciative that Clutch lists such great companies; I was able to find a quality company on Clutch that made my dream happen for me.

How much have you invested with them?

I spent a little more than $30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our work together spanned April–September 2019. I’m preparing to launch the platform soon.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I had an idea of what I wanted, and Axisbits brought it to life. Their creativity enabled them to deliver a high-quality product that’s even better than I’d imagined. The platform is very modern and has a trendy design.

I’m confident that when I launch the platform, it will look good to the public and attract users. Their pricing structure is great, their integrity is awesome, and their creativity is phenomenal.

How did Axisbits perform from a project management standpoint?

At the start of the project, I met with Maxim, and he was friendly and attentive. I was initially a bit insecure because I didn’t know this company, but Maxim reassured me that they’d deliver the product they promised me. He gave me cost and time projections and said they wouldn’t exceed either. They kept their word on that.

Then, when we began the project, my project manager picked up right where Maxim left off. The transition was smoother than I anticipated. Maxim continued to check in and was always available if I had any questions or issues. At one point, I had a major concern, and Maxim addressed it right away.

All of Axisbits’s employees were professional. Their ability to work with people set them apart. If I didn’t like something, the designer switched it right away. They understood what this project meant to me, and they executed the platform with that frame of mind.

In order to deliver on the timeline they promised, Axisbits amped up the number of developers working on the project toward the end, but they didn’t raise the price. The team delivered what they said they would, which points to their integrity.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Structuring my company and getting this project off the ground has been challenging, and working with Axisbits has been the easiest part of the process. They created the heart of my program. Their creativity set them apart; when I asked for something, they not only did it but often delivered even more than what I requested.

I know people who have paid other companies the same amount and, after a few years, their product still isn’t mobile-responsive, let alone complete. I gave Axisbits a six-month timeframe, and they adhered to it. I already had a lot going on, and they never put extra stress on me.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I don’t have any complaints. They should market themselves so that more people find them.

Any advice for potential customers?

Just start working with them; you’re not going to be disappointed. They’re good about fixing issues or fulfilling requests right away. I often only had to mention something once, and they made it happen.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder of an advanced appointment booking software

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Axisbits?

I hired them to build a custom software for both ends, customers and clients.

What were your goals for this project?

I needed a creative team to help me work around problems and provide me multiple solutions to it. A team to make me feel that they are genuinely interested in working for my project. And this is what I found in Axisbits.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

First I wrote this development opportunity on several platforms and received over 50 applications. By narrowing them down by trust, quality and price Axisbits won the final selection.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Simply put it’s a platform to enhance a clients appointment booking experience drastically and on the other end, to provide a software for businesses to manage their own business by being registered on the platform. They are building the whole idea from scratch, also integrating a crm system which will make it easy for the firm to manage operations.

What was the team composition?

The CEO Maxim stayed in contact with Andrew the Project Manager. With both which I’m more than satisfied, they have provided great work and have a great work ethic. Moreover they assigned 1 front-end, 2 back-end and one on l-demand designer for my project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They always suit my needs and pace. Andrew does a great job coordinating the project. Unfortunately, I haven’t met any of the developers, might be because they work in scrums. I believe we could go a lot faster with the project if needed, so the effectiveness is really what you want it to be. In my case very effective.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They provided excellent communication, invoicing, transparency, creative solutions. Most of all I’m very happy to work with a team that understands the modern world design and feature needs.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

What really convinced me to work with them was their very modern designs they created and their transparency. There was 1 point in my project which they had never done before, I gained further trust by them telling me the truth and also that although they never worked with such a system, that they believed it wouldn’t be a difficult task to master.

Are there any areas for improvement?

In the future I will need 7 days assistance. I hope that they will arrange that there is always a small group available to be able to fix emergency issues over weekends too (if needed).

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 a junior partner at a technology firm that designs and develops regulatory compliance solutions for banks and other clients.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Axisbits?

We wanted to offer our customers a dashboard that would give them a simple overview of their steps to regulatory compliance.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We wrote a number of epics from various perspectives: one from a bank compliance employee, one from a chief risk officer, and one from our own perspective. We then requested Axisbits to develop a backend in which we could plug our existing tools and add and edit customer data in the frontend. Employees and chief risk officers can use the frontend as a dashboard to monitor all their individual tools, their regulatory calendar, and news and updates. We’re currently designing some extra features to be implemented over the next few months.

What is the team composition?

My main contact is Maxim (Founder & CEO, Axisbits). Not all of their programmers speak English well, so having one person as a direct contact is good for them. We can contact the rest of the team through our select channel. At the peak of development, we had five senior developers working on it and one project manager.

How did you come to work with Axisbits?

I’ve worked with Axisbits for a long time, so I contacted them directly.

How much have you invested with them?

$10,000­–25,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in August 2017 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s definitely had a positive effect on marketing. Our tool brings a lot of business value, but the new dashboard has the advantage of being more visually user-friendly. We’ve used it for events, and our clients have been happy with the improved functionality.

How did Axisbits perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicate through Trello, Slack, and Skype, and we keep our project files on Google Drive because that’s what they prefer. We also have wireframing tools such as InVision and Balsamiq that we use for specific stages.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We have developed an open and honest relationship with AxisBits over the years. We’re radically truthful to each other and nobody holds back anything. If I’m unhappy with how things are going, I’ll say so, and they’ll say the same to me if needed. Max knows I need him to be clear if I’m not delivering so that we can ensure the most effective solution.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They stick to a specific technology stack because they know it well. It would be great if they could offer consulting based on more options, but I understand they’re bound by the size of their firm.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Clients should make their project requirements clear before development, and make a proper estimate of how long the project will take.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the owner of a design studio.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Axisbits?

One of our clients needed software development services. 
 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

We hired Axisbits to help us provide development and UI/UX testing for our client. We needed to create a design from scratch. They built a web portal and made a custom CRM for our client. We created the design, and after agreeing on it with the client, Axisbits took the blueprint and created the prototype, and created the whole website following that.

What is the team composition?

Axisbits provided us with a team of several developers and one project manager.

How did you come to work with Axisbits?

We found the team through a recommendation.

How much have you invested in them?

We spent around $35,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together on this project from February–June 2017.
 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Axisbits created the website according to our specifications. They completed all of the work within a limited amount of time and in line with the budget we laid out.

How did Axisbits perform from a project management standpoint?

Axisbits managed the project quite well.  We usually communicated through email, Slack, Skype, Basecamp, QuickChat, and Telegram.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Axisbits is a team of skilled executors. We looked in the workforce for a team that could finish tasks in a specific amount of time and on a delimited budget. Many companies will tell you they can bring all types of benefits to your business, yet fail to follow through. Axisbits had the expertise to deliver on their commitments. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I don’t think so.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Axisbits was able to execute on the work I wanted. They would be a great partner for another project I want to work on together in a year’s time.

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 CFO and project coordinator at StartGiving Germany. We’re a consultation and development company focused on corporate social responsibility.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Axisbits?

We needed a vendor to provide ongoing development support.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’ve worked with Axisbits on a variety of projects. The most recent one involved a customization project for an online fundraising platform that they helped us develop initially.

When building the original platform, we started with a discussion of our requirements then put together a development plan. Axisbits helped us draft some sketches to map the user flow. Once we finalized the design, they built out the platform. We indented to use it for solely private donors, but we decided to incorporate it into our sister company as well. It’s a nonprofit, so we use the platform to support crowdfunding for charitable projects. We tested it with clients and fixed any bugs we identified.

We also provide consulting and fundraising services for corporate clients. One of our partners asked us to make several customizations to make the platform more tailored to their individual needs. Axisbits added some new functionality and created a new dashboard that met their needs.

What is the team composition?

Maxim (Founder & CEO, Axisbits) was our main point of contact. We also worked with a project manager and a developer. I think there were more people involved in the background, but I never interacted with them.

How did you come to work with Axisbits?

I started my role with the company in 2016, and Axisbits was already providing development support. Our staff found them through a freelance platform and assigned a small test project. After considering other factors like price and technical skill level, they chose to partner with Axisbits.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $5,000 on specifically the customization project. I’m not sure how much we’ve spent in total.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in 2016, and we wrapped up our latest project in October 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Without Axisbits’ efforts, we wouldn’t have such a high-quality platform. It’s one of our core business offerings, and their contributions have been instrumental to our success.

How did Axisbits perform from a project management standpoint?

They have great inter-team communication, easily passing information from one person to the next. Axisbits translated all of our requirements into a working solution. I can reach someone from their team whenever necessary. They were very accessible across several communication channels, including Slack and Skype. Even though we speak different languages natively, the barrier never caused an issue.

We established very tight deadlines for this project. Our client was planning an event and needed our project completed by a scheduled date. We needed to keep them happy, so Axisbits went above and beyond to ensure we delivered on time. Their performance on this project speaks to the efficiency of their management skills. They explained their processes to help us understand the full timeline of their work.

What did you find most impressive about them?

This wasn’t an easy project, but the Axisbits team willingly took on the challenge. They showed a high level of commitment, working weekends and nights to complete tasks on time. We really appreciated their work ethic—dedication can’t be written into a contract. Whenever we identified an important element or task, they accommodated our requests and prioritized their workflow.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We’ve run into the standard issues like miscommunications, unclear requirements, and testing errors. There were a few moments of tension, but nothing out of the ordinary. In the end, they delivered a quality solution, and we couldn’t be happier.

We have a great working relationship, and I always enjoy our interactions. I can’t think of any real areas of weakness. With every project, we learn how to collaborate more efficiently and improve our communication skills. The quality of their work is completely dependent on our ability to communicate our needs.

Any advice for potential customers?

Clients should explicitly explain their requirements and their business model with full transparency. The Axisbits team appreciates honesty and clear communication because it helps them provide realistic estimates. Clients will only overspend if they misrepresent the project’s requirements.

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 a consultant. I work on different B2B projects, on the technical side of things, while also managing and hiring teams for my clients.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Axisbits?

They’ve worked on six or seven different projects, which were mainly web and mobile app development. For this project, I had a request from a client to develop his informational website as well as an MVP.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided us with MVP development, web development, and some server maintenance services for another one of my clients.

The mobile applications were built for Android and iOS, cross-platform development on PhoneGap. They developed one app for my business and several for my clients, which were native iOS. The main features were payment security and payment systems.

What is the team composition?

There were four developers and one project manager assigned to me.

How did you come to work with Axisbits?

They were recommended to me. After hearing reviews and positive insight about them from other companies about their professionalism, I decided to work with them. They’re very skilled, and their price is quite low relative to European prices.

How much have you invested in them?

We spent more than $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

I worked with them from October 2015–May 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They did everything correctly. I liked that the owner was involved in the whole process and helped to execute the tasks.

How did Axisbits perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re skilled in project management. We worked with different tools depending on the project. We used Slack, Jira, Basecamp, GitHub.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The quality of their work sets them apart from other companies I have worked with—they’re well qualified and there are fewer errors in their work.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It would be good if some of the developers could improve their level of English.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

No.

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 a project manager for a business services company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Axisbits?

A client wanted to create the MVP for an upcoming project. The ultimate goal was to take advantage of a new market niche. Therefore, we needed a third-party vendor to build the mobile platform and associated website.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Axisbits developed the website and built the mobile apps for iOS and Android. The client required extra security, so they used a custom CMS to build out the platform from scratch. We’ve since completed the MVP and delivered it to our client. In addition to providing ongoing system support, the Axisbits team helps us with Linux creation projects, design efforts, and email marking campaigns.

What is the team composition?

They assigned a project manager and three developers to our account. I also spoke with Maxim (Founder & CEO, Axisbits) on occasion.

How did you come to work with Axisbits?

After researching several different companies, Axisbits was referred to us by a separate third-party partner. I made a call to Maxim and we went over their pricing options. I also interviewed their developers and was impressed by their skills. I gave them a three-week pilot project, and they completed it to my satisfaction. After that, we decided to work with them in a greater capacity.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent over $15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Their contributions to the MVP project took place from May–August 2018. However, we continue to work with them when applicable.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They completed everything within the agreed upon timeline.

How did Axisbits perform from a project management standpoint?

Maxim was always available to field questions or review project specifications. We tried not to micromanage them or push the team too hard. They simply got to work and sent us reports several days before each deadline.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They quickly understood the project and offered competitive pricing. Axisbits operates on the same wavelength as us, so we find it easier to work with them than other vendors. They speak English quite well, so we communicate often. They always keep us informed regarding a project’s progression.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I hope they continue doing what they’re doing. They’re perfect development partners for us.

Feedback summary: 

Though the site experienced some initial bugs, Axisbits resolved them quickly; the platform has run smoothly since. They tailored their management to the engagement’s needs and displayed excellent responsiveness. Customers can expect an adaptable partner that’s accustomed to shifting requirements.

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 of Coudrees, a French platform that helps people order made-to-measure fashion items online. We work with artisans and studios that have strong skills-sets but minimal self-promotion, letting them sell their services on our site but not their actual products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Axisbits?

We wanted to build a website that would differentiate us from other platforms, making it clear from the first landing page that, although we work with artisans as other marketplaces do, we focus solely on fashion and tailor-made, ready-to-wear products. Moreover, our artisans don’t pay us to sell their objects. Instead, they pay us a commission on the final bill.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We transitioned to work in PHP partway through the website development to better accommodate my budget. In the end, it also helped create a better site. 

What is the team composition?

The vendor changed ownership during the project (they became Axisbits after the ownership change), but I continued working with the same team. I started working with a project manager, a frontend developer, and a backend developer. The team has stayed the same even now that we’re in a support phase and have fewer tasks to accomplish.

How did you come to work with Axisbits? 

They were recommended by an experienced friend who was quite satisfied with them. I was looking for an agency that had strong front- and backend development and design skills, so I wouldn’t have to contract more than one agency. I was also aiming for an experienced partner since this was my first digital project.

I explored three or four agencies from different countries. Axisbits wasn’t the most affordable option, but they offered me the greatest value, including charging me through a European account, which is crucial to a French company like mine. Even though they’re based in Ukraine, they also have a European presence, so I could have some human contact with them.

How much have you invested with them?

The project cost was €23,000 ($26,600), not including technical support or changes we asked for.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from September 2017 until February 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Aside from the first purchase, where had a few bugs (that Axisbits fixed quickly), all purchases have gone through smoothly. I can’t speak to the final clients’ satisfaction, but the artisans we work with have been extremely happy. The site is working well.

How did Axisbits perform from a project management standpoint?

I had the same project manager for the entire time, and he was highly flexible. He reacted quickly whenever I needed to make changes and listened well. Had I been part of a big corporation, I would’ve been more nervous about some of the processes. Seeing as I’m a startup, I wasn’t too demanding, and they understood my brief well.

We completed the majority of tasks using email and Skype after realizing they worked better than project management software. Axisbits works well autonomously, setting up tasks themselves and delivering work with only a few minor bugs; there wasn’t anything crucial that would’ve disturbed the entire system.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Axisbits is incredibly flexible regarding price. When the concept changed, so did they—and they didn’t ask for increased payment when tasks grew more complicated. I’m satisfied with how they reacted.

I also appreciated their human, loyal approach. If I needed something done on Sunday, they’d get it done. They want to earn money, work with bigger clients, and become experts in their area. Though we had some ups and downs, the project went well in the end. I always enjoyed my contact with them; they’re personable, loyal, and fast.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We did have quite a few bugs and, had I been more demanding, I would’ve paid more attention to them. They’re not perfect, but they’re a good, fast team that makes fixes quickly.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Try to factor in as many details at the beginning as possible, so that the price won’t change too drastically. We altered the price a few times but never to a radical degree. Make sure to brief them well, so they understand what needs to be done.
