Peach Pass provides a convenient way for Georgia motorists to pay tolls issued while traveling along I-85 express lanes. To make the process even easier, we developed an iOS and Android native app called Peach Pass GO! that can be used to change toll modes and check account balances directly on user’s phones without having to go online or call. We incorporated Objective-C, Cocoa Touch, and Java in the development of this

app.

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 director of product development at a cybersecurity company. We specialize in trying to predict and prevent cybersecurity positions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Azul Arc?

We needed someone to provide us with UI and database development services.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Azul Arc helped us to bring a brand new product to market by creating a user interface as well as the database required to take our information and create a dashboard for a cybersecurity maritime industry. 

The user interface was created from scratch — we had an idea of what we wanted, but we needed the expertise of their designers to take our vision and put it into an image our team could scrutinize and provide feedback on. 

Once the user interface was completed, Azul Arc went ahead and tied in all of the disparate data we’d sent them into a cohesive output, the dashboard. 

As far as technologies used, they built most if not all of it on WordPress, by our request. They used other softwares along the way, including a graphic design and SaaS software for us to view and provide feedback on the images.

What is the team composition?

We worked with about four people from their team directly. 

How did you come to work with Azul Arc?

I was introduced to them via a contact of mine at a business school. That contact was also working with Azul Arc, and he said they were a great, experienced team offering a great service at a fair price. 

We first asked them to produce a single deliverable, and they did so successfully, so I knew they were the right team to work with going forward. 

How much have you invested with them?

We invested roughly $25,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project took place from June–September 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Qualitatively, we were able to generate at least one big customer meeting, as well as several other webinars. Our partners are also very happy that we’re able to show them what we’re trying to develop. All in all, I think our investment with Azul Arc will produce a 400% return. 

How did Azul Arc perform from a project management standpoint?

Azul Arc was exemplary. They’re very professional project managers who can talk to all the stakeholders and put together a cohesive plan. It’s one of the reasons we decided to invest more in them.

The first part of the exercise was mostly a waterfall approach, so we didn’t need to do a lot of project management and sprints. However, they have introduced me to their internal agile approach, including the software that we’re going to use as we continue working with them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Azul Arc is very knowledgeable in terms of what we needed done, when we needed it, and the level of quality to produce a successful product. Even though there were some last-minute changes, they always had a great attitude and were always able to accommodate us without raising the budget.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t think there’s anything we needed them to do any differently.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If you don’t know Azul Arc’s background, at least give them a shot to impress you. They can produce really high quality work for a low budget. Once they prove their worth, it’ll be pretty obvious they’re the right company to partner with to produce amazing products.

Feedback summary: 

The project is still in development but the company is happy with the team's deliverables which include UI/UX designs, wireframes, and modules ready for testing. The team has been flexible throughout the project which suits the startup company well.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a startup developing a SaaS platform that is focused on making the lives of boutique studio owners easier by providing a simple, intuitive on-stop solution for all their studio management needs. I'm the Co-founder and CEO of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Azul Arc, and what were your goals?

My Co-founder and I have this idea for a concept that would disrupt the boutique fitness studio management space. The challenge was that neither of us were expert developers, and also did not have the training in UI/UX.

And as a startup, we did not have the resources to hire an entire team of developers and UI/UX designers right away. Our goals was to have a dependable development partner who would work with us to develop the MVP and v1 of the platform, by which time we hope to raise enough funds to bring the development in-house.

We needed a team that could flex as needed and bring in resources with specific skillsets (example UI/UX designers) as needed, and we needed that at startup prices!

SOLUTION

How did you select Azul Arc and what were the deciding factors?

One of the things we were trying to do is find a team that would meet our criteria

  1. Be agile / flexible
  2. Have all the skillsets we need
  3. Be priced right
  4. And most importantly, be true partners with us as we started on this journey, and provide us feedback / push back if certain features we wished for didn't make sense from a technical perspective or made sense to push to a later release to help us manage our budget.

We interviewed around 5 companies ranging from small 3-4 person shops to large (and well known) development firms before we made our decision to move forward with Azul Arc because they met all our criteria and felt like they would be true partners with us on this and we weren't wrong!

Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and technologies used.

The scope of the work was to take our concept (which was largely in our heads) and put some structure around it and actually build a stable MVP and v1 of the SaaS platform which would serve as a strong foundation on which we could build upon (we did not want to bootstrap an MVP and then rebuild it again from scratch once we had more funding).

We went through all the phases of development right from taking our ideas and putting them down on paper together as a team, building out ERDs, a product development timeline, UI/UX design and then development of the modules in the order we discussed.

There are some cool features that don't exist in the marketplace right now but the platform has all the basics - auto-emails, push notifications to clients, reactive design, client and backend management modules, admin dashboards, advanced analytics / business intelligence, and APIs for integration with boutique studio webpages and softwares, as well as third party vendors that boutique studios use.

The platform is based on a MERN stack and uses React JS for a mobile and desktop experience.

How many people from the vendor's team worked with you, and what were their positions?

The team we have worked with has included two product managers, one UX designer, one creative designer, and 4 developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The platform is still in development but so far the team has provided high quality deliverables, including UI/UX screens and wireframes and modules to test in UAT.

What really stands out is the fact that the Azul Arc team has taken this on as if this were their own product and added little enhancements that they came up with on their own which improve the overall user experience which is what we are so focused on, while still keeping it simple and intuitive.

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

The team uses an Agile methodology and used a wire variety of tools to manage the project and keep us involved the entire time, right from cool electronic whiteboards for our brainstorming workshops, Invision for Wireframes and UI/UX screens and Podio for Collaboration and Workflow Management to name a few.

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

There are a couple of things that make me not regret our decision to move forward with Azul Arc:

  1. The point I made above about them proactively adding enhancements to the UX is huge. I've worked with a bunch of development companies in the past who would do exactly what I asked them to do and not one little thing more than that.
  2. The team is not only flexible when we add modules / pivot due to market conditions or new information (which they did at the drop of a hat) but also invested in the platform by taking on some of the costs that we would incur by developing a variant that would help us get to market faster to service a small subset of our final target customer segment. Not many companies would do that!

I see them as real partners as we build our platform and grow our business.

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

We're still in development and things have been going great these past 8 months, but the only thing I can think of right now is that my co-founder and I come up with new ideas and things we would like to include in the platform and keep peppering them with these.

I know they document all of these (as a lot of them would be for future versions of the platform) but it's a little unsettling that we don't see it somewhere (and are afraid we would forget them ourselves later on).

I know the team does document them because they have brought up ideas we proposed at the onset of the project at specific times over the past few months, but since we don't see their list, it sometimes makes me think we might forget something with all that's going on (might be just me :)

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO at Whitaker-Taylor. Our company offers SAP consulting services.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Azul Arc?

We hired them for a research and development project as we were exploring the viability of introducing a new product to the market.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided design and development services. We started with some design ideas around the product. The team figured out the best way to uncover the product from a user experience perspective.

Azul Arc guided us with their insights on SaaS products and how to position payment and design options to make it a sustainable model. They developed high definition and low definition prototypes. After sharing those, the team did a few interviews with potential customers. They created screens and user stories, as well. The team delivered a real package that I could test within the market.

What is the team composition?

I worked with five people regularly.

How did you come to work with Azul Arc?

I believe it was a referral. Before we started the project, their team spent time coaching us about how to approach this type of project. We talked through ideas before signing the contract.

How much have you invested with them?

It was in the $70,000 range.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started talking with Azul Arc in November 2019, and we finished earlier this month.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’m happy with the end result. All of the designs were impressive. Everyone I shared them with had great feedback. The team was professional and structured. The team is fair with their pricing and approach to business development. I think I got a lot more value than what I pay for.

The team understood what we were looking to do. When there were more technical or design architecture questions, they pulled in other team members that I was able to speak to. I also had great access to their CEO to ask questions and discuss the timeline. The entire team was flexible, easygoing, and accommodating.

How did Azul Arc perform from a project management standpoint?

We had weekly meetings. They used InVision and other project management tools for sharing information. It was very seamless and practical. Even when I was rambling, they kept things very structured.

Azul Arc kept me organized, which was important. When we transitioned because of the coronavirus, I didn’t see any difference. They were resourceful and attentive.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Azul Arc’s team is invested. They understood the purpose of our product. They asked questions to ensure that they understood it. Their investment went a long way. Without Azul Arc, I’m not sure we would’ve been successful.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t think I do. It went as well as I could’ve expected. The team met all of my requests.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Take the time to share information and explain your vision. They’ll listen and absorb it, but the client has to be open to sharing. Be open to their input and feedback. Their experience goes beyond the development piece. They have a great strategic mindset.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of iSchool Initiative, a professional development and training company to help teachers adopt new technology in education.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Azul Arc?

We’re currently pivoting from being a service-based company where we provide the bulk of the training, to a platform-based company, where we will be launching our own software to be the marketplace for professional trainers in education.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built out a framework for a platform that we’re building to become that marketplace. They spent 3–4 months brainstorming a UI that allows us to showcase what the platform can do when they fully develop.

What is the team composition?

There were four people involved on and off. They were led by Zach (Project Manager). Kate (User Interface Designer) built the interfaces.

How did you come to work with Azul Arc?

One of my colleagues networked with them at an event in Atlanta. He introduced them to us.

How much have you invested with them?

It’s been about a $30,000 project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began work in January 2019. We’re still working together today.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Azul Arc has been fantastic to work with. We’ve worked with prior developers working on a similar project, so we have easy anecdotes to compare them to and can say that they're amazing with confidence.

Because they’re the experts, they were able to work with us to build something better than we wanted. We didn’t know the possibilities and most companies will build a project as we describe it. They worked with us to build something better than we could have ever imagined.

How did Azul Arc perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re incredibly efficient and communicative. They’re very specific with their timelines — if we told them we wanted a new feature they would know how to implement it and exactly what would happen with the deadlines.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their ability to know what I wanted when I didn’t even know what I wanted continued to impress me.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There were initially some redundant phone conversations, but it’s a very small thing that I’m nitpicking.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Go in with an open mind and trust their expertise. You may know your industry well, but you want to trust their judgment and be flexible with how to shape your product.

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 CEO of a social media recruiting platform for high school athletes, colleges, and fans.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Azul Arc?

We were trying to make a service that was accessible, free for high school students, and free for fans, but paid for coaches. The goal was to create a central database for recruiting in high school athletics

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’re in charge of designing my app. They grew the idea from basics. I dealt with a lot of developers before Azul Arc and they’re a breath of fresh air; they check in every week and get my approval on everything. I have access to everything. It’s for both iOS and Android devices. I had features planned out, but I let them come up with their own design and submit it for approval.

Exposure is a big problem for high school athletes because a lot of them don’t have the money to attend different camps or go across the country to deal with recruiting services. Most of the online services charge kids a down payment of $150 up to $5,000 depending on how much recruitment you need. I’m trying to make it free across the board to funnel all your information to colleges and college coaches. On the college side, they have to go through five different services to get all the information so I decided to put it all together.

What is the team composition?

I talk to five people on a daily basis. They have their own coding team who I don’t really talk to. I interact with the project managers and heads of design.

How did you come to work with Azul Arc?

They did a free class called a “Lunch and Learn,” and then I connected over the phone.

How much have you invested with them?

We’re going to spend around $34,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since March 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They use InVision, and I’m able to download it on my phone. It’s almost like seeing the app before the app and gives me something to show in my presentations to high schools and colleges. This also gives me access to changes and updates their making as they’re making them.

How did Azul Arc perform from a project management standpoint?

My team leader is Ming (Associate Product Manager), and she’s amazing, always answering my questions. I’m a night owl, so I’ll be up until two in the morning and she’ll respond as soon as she can.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their communication is great. In my brief experience, anything with coding requires great communication. We always find common ground. If I can’t reach one person I can reach someone else. Initially, I talked to Joyce (VP of Sales), and she’ll still reach out and let me know she can help me with anything even though we don’t work directly together anymore.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Generally, I’ve been quite happy. I’ve worked with a lot of freelancers that had other things going on so this has been a breath of fresh air.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Always be upfront with whatever you’re looking for; don’t be afraid to communicate your ideas. Ask questions, too, because if you’re trying to develop something that hasn’t been done before then you won’t be successful without saying what you need.

We needed to rebrand and redo our content. Our website was disjointed and not user friendly. Additionally, it’s our company’s 30th anniversary, so we wanted to highlight that with this upgrade that would also help us stand out from the competition.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

For the first phase, we focused on branding. This included updating our logo, image elements, color palette, font usage, graphic elements, and style. 

They also developed a new website for us. Our original website was developed using HubSpot, but it wasn’t optimized properly and the UX was clunky. They redesigned the site and we added new white papers, case studies, and service brochures. 

Their team is providing ongoing support with design and UX. 

What is the team composition?

There were three main team members, including a project manager, their most senior web developer, and a designer. There were a few other employees that assisted with the work from time to time. 

How did you come to work with Azul Arc?

They had a strong reputation for web development work, but it was their design abilities and understanding of what our needs were that led me to choose them. 

How much have you invested in them?

We invested between $50,000-$100,000. 

What is the status of this engagement?

 We worked together from November 2019-March 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’m happy with the deliverables. When they delivered something, they met all the specifications and added suggestions that could improve upon the final product. It was clear they were giving the project continuous thought. The team is passionate about their work and also highly logical. I’m extremely happy with the end result. 

How did Azul Arc perform from a project management standpoint?

They had an excellent project management plan that included deadlines and deliverables. They helped manage deadlines and keep me on track as I was creating content. 

There were a few items along the way that I flagged or adjusted along the way to improve the outcome. They understood quickly and we were able to move forward as soon as I brought something to their attention. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their collaboration on all elements and unrelenting focus on the needs of the target audience was impressive. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

I think there are some tools that could be enhanced a bit further. For example, SEO tactics like tagging keywords, writing title tags, and more. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers? 

 I think their design skills ought not to be overlooked. They’re known for web development, but I think their design team should be engaged throughout the project.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Vector Global Logistics LLC is an asset-free, multimodal company that provides top-class sea, air, truck, rail, and general logistics. We have offices in the US, Mexico, and Chile. I'm the managing director. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Azul Arc?

I've worked with Azul Arc for the last eight years on different projects, from designing our website and social media to helping us develop an online client portal.

What were your goals for this project?

Our main goals were to design an elegant, functional client portal that integrated all the information from our operating system and to present it in an efficient, practical way. We wanted our clients to log into the system, see all their shipments and run reports, and filter the information to better manage their supply chain.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We had worked with Azul Arc for our website and enjoyed their culture and business sense. Azul Arc is a professional company with dedicated, hard-working, creative people. 

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We asked them to dive into our operational system, build familiarity with its information fields, and propose a client portal that presented all the data in a simple, elegant, and user-friendly way. Their main challenge was developing a smart design that captured all the steps in our supply chain.

What was the team composition?

The team had a project manager, a lead designer, and a team of programmers with whom we didn't interact much. As in previous engagements, we also had a few meetings with the founder. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We launched the client portal a few months ago, and all our clients currently use it. This project has allowed us to keep clients informed while improving our overall coordination and effectiveness. This portal helps our clients track their shipments while making our operations team more efficient.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Their approach to management is smart. They began with a few discovery meetings to understand not only the goal and scope of the project but also the culture and values of our team. During these meetings, they dove deep into our company and asked fundamental questions that went beyond the technical aspects of the portal. They asked about our clients, our communication styles, and the relationship we wanted to foster with our users.

It's an enjoyable, thoughtful, and highly effective process. They have helped us successfully develop our client portal, website, and brand image by truly partnering with our team. They take the time to go beyond the functional designs and get to know our values.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Azul Arc is a well-rounded provider with the technical capabilities of a large company and a committed, passionate, results-oriented team. We believe that a few caring people can change the world, so I'm happy to work with a company that shares our practices and values. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

In this particular project, there are few areas for improvement. They have done a great job.

Feedback summary: 

With Azul’s help, the product passed rigorous Salesforce stress tests quicker than expected. Their communication and project management are strong, and they helped set realistic goals and timelines for the project. Additional suggestions and network resources complement the process.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Funnel Metrics is a software as a service provider. I’m the founder and CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Azul Arc?

We hired them to help us build our sales management application.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The application runs on Apex, Salesforce’s programming language. We had some requirements that called for specific functionality within a specific time frame. Our sophisticated evaluation system certifies overall performance of salespeople and generates scores based on quantitative and qualitative metrics.

They’ve met certain milestones and built all the necessary functionality into various sprint releases. We’re on schedule to deliver version 1.2 in early December 2018 and version 1.3, the production version, in early January 2019.

What is the team composition?

We work with one primary project manager and a secondary contact here in the States, then a head project lead, his direct assistant, and another two or three people in their offices in India.

How did you come to work with Azul Arc?

My CTO researched a number of companies and built a shortlist of three providers. We met each of them and were most impressed by Azul Arc’s CEO and his team. There was a level of comfort, and they really understood what we were trying to accomplish.

They took time to listen and made us think realistically about our timelines and other expectations. The other vendors just told us what we wanted to hear, but Azul Arc was open and honest with us. That immediate understanding and trust made us choose them over anything else.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent close to $500,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The initial evaluation took place in July and August 2017 and we started building the code in September 2017. Our work together is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re very happy with the overall way toe project has been managed in terms of delivery dates, functionality, and budgetary considerations. We don’t have any ROI yet, as the product is still being built. That aside, they were a major help in getting us through our Salesforce security review. Salesforce does a stress test that most products will fail several times. With Azul Arc’s help, we passed on our second time through. We couldn’t have done that so quickly without their expertise and support.

How did Azul Arc perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management is very strong and I give them high marks. We have a weekly standup meeting where we chat about upcoming sprints. The communication is good both in and out of those meetings. We’re a small company, and they’re a real partner to us.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The quality of their people is most impressive. Their CEO understands complex problems and helps us work through challenges in our overall methodology. They put us in touch with valuable outside resources, like a data scientist who helps us build out our models and products. The relationships they cultivate are of real value to us, and we’re fortunate to have them on our side. Their efforts have a huge impact on our operations and we hope to work with them well into the future.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. They’re doing a great job, and I’m really happy we chose them as a partner.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Sit down with them before you start your project to outline your expectations and requirements. They will assess your needs and give you an idea of how long your goals will take, which was extremely helpful for us and very thorough. We really appreciated the time they took to make sure we knew the costs and the final deliverables beforehand.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Azul Arc?

Azul Arc is redesigning our mobile application and is providing significant strategy guidance to prepare our app to include membership and advertising elements for the wine club.

We wanted to retool the app with a cleaner design. We hoped to add significant features and search options. Further, we are adding means for a third-party winery partner to promote their wines via the application.

SOLUTION

We selected Azul Arc because they offered an extensive design and development staff. We were impressed by their team’s strategic capabilities, personality, and attention to details.

Describe the project in detail.

Once we selected Azul Arc, they performed strategic research to examine the best practices of other wine applications. After they evaluated our previous app, we held a strategy session so that they could better understand our business’ long-term goals and our vision for the redesigned version. They later presented us with a wireframe that included an updated design and new navigation concepts. Once we gave our approval, they gave us weekly updates through the development process. It was an organized approach, and we were quite happy with them taking the lead.

What was the team composition?

We were assigned a project manager and a team of senior designers and developers. The CEO also took a personal interest in the project, so we worked with him as well.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We are pleased with the final product. Since the project’s completion, we have contracted with Azul Arc to be our development team with an annual contract.
