The Review
Feedback summary: 

At first, Bacancy delivered the website without testing, and several components did not work. However, these issues were fixed and Bacancy’s team was very professional, responsive, and accommodating. Their services came at a fair price and the final project was delivered under budget.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Kingdom Candidates is in the church staffing industry. The company provides a digital network for pastors, church administrators, and leaders in the church market to find one another affordably, empowering them to make informed decisions about one another faster. Our goal is to make church staffing simple. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Bacancy Technology?

There is a position in the market for a positive disruption to be introduced to the church staffing website/consulting industry. Kingdom Candidates is a positive disruption to the church staffing world because it is a highly functional website that is an effective alternative to hiring expensive church staffing consultants and using other church staffing websites.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Bacancy Technology built a digital platform to aid Kingdom Candidates' pursuit to bring affordable and effective church staffing solutions into the 21st century. The successful completion of the project helped us digitize the search hiring process for churches by building our website. They developed the means for churches to build informative profiles online that entice high caliber talent and then organize that talent. There is no competitor on the market that does this.

Further, Bacancy aided our business's pursuit to streamline the hiring process by providing a platform for candidates to upload all the necessary information that churches require—beyond a resume—to get hired (cover letter, resume, sermon videos, statement of faith, philosophy of ministry, personal salvation story, personality assessments, and pictures etc.).

Additionally, Bacancy helped us create a questionnaire that aids employer's assessment of the candidate, their background, leadership ability, ministry experience, and emotional IQ. Bacancy's design and development abilities have given our business the ability to be a positive disruption to the church staffing world. They brought our vision of a highly functional and effective church staffing website into reality. 

What is the status of this engagement?

The duration of the project was was 4.5 months. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

It was a pleasure to work with Bacancy. They succesfuly implemented every component of our agreed upon Phase I work. Bacancy has a desire to produce not only excellent work but lucrative websites and tools for companies that depend on the internet for a portion, or all, of their income. 

How did Bacancy Technology perform from a project management standpoint?

Whenever a problem was discovered that needed to be fixed in order to guarantee website efficiency, particularly from a website user perspective, the team at Bacancy was creative and accommodating. They placed our company's needs first.

What did you find most impressive about Bacancy Technology?

Any issues we found on with the website were fixed by Bacancy within 24-48 hours. They understand that our success as a company translates into their success as a company. 

Are there any areas Bacancy Technology could improve?

We were informed the project was completed on time (in early June 2017) only to discover there were some important functional components of the website that were not working. In hindsight, these issues came from a breakdown in communication and a misunderstanding of website functional expectations. When the issues were clearly pointed out and expectations made clear, Bacancy was extremely accommodating and implemented all necessary changes and fixes to make our website highly effective.

From a control perspective, Bacancy would benefit from completing projects prior to informing the client and forming a test team and then testing, retesting, and testing again the final web project before presenting it to the customer. Prior to going live, we spent many hours testing and retesting the website with our own team and other leaders in our industry to discover what did and did not work on the website.

Feedback summary: 

The assigned developer was able to fix all of the site’s broken components, and as a result, subscription revenue has doubled in just six months. Bacancy Technology is willing to work overtime and under pressure to complete projects and maintains a positive attitude throughout. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the Department Manager of Microminimus. Wicked Weasel Bikinis & Microminimus are a manufacturing/publishing business based in Byron Bay, creating high-quality swimwear and evening wear. We operate an online community platform for our community of 30,000 devoted brand advocates and bikini loving enthusiasts. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bacancy Technologies?

We needed a developer who could grapple with our very outdated and underperforming IT system that was almost entirely undocumented, falling apart, and in need of urgent repairs.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We were assigned a developer named Hiren who, after some weeks exploring and investigating our system and its inherent troubles limitations and dependencies, was tasked with bringing the system back under control so it would be able to be developed upon again. We use Ruby on Rails for our community site including forums, groups, user profiles, gallery submissions, internal currency, moderation, and subscriptions. It also has integration with another Ruby eCommerce project.

How did you come to work with Bacancy Technologies?

This was conducted by our Managing Director and Human Resources team who assessed numerous companies and chose Bacancy for their Rails experience.

How much have you invested with Bacancy Technologies?

Somewhere between $10,000 and $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

February 2017 to present.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Hiren was assigned to investigate and fix our broken system. There was no documentation, old versions of Ruby & Rails, conflicting dependencies and many other issues that caused problems for our members. Hiren's work has essentially fixed the key broken components, which has been instrumental in our doubling subscription revenue in just six months.

How did Bacancy Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

As good as can be expected. I have no problems with how they work at all. In fact, Hiren has worked late, overtime, and under a lot of pressure, while always maintaining a good, positive attitude despite the fluid nature of the project and its requirements.

What did you find most impressive about Bacancy Technologies?

I also was “thrown in the deep end” with this project and my lack of knowledge in managing an IT project such as this was made so much easier with the patience and perseverance of Hiren and his counterpart, Ankita. Never have I experienced such a fantastic commitment to the tasks at hand.

Is there any area that they could improve?

Nothing.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The functional product has already attracted positive feedback from early viewers and potential customers due to its intuitive interface and functionality. Bacancy Technology’s rapid pace, helpful feature organization, and fully staffed team continue to optimize efficiency. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a startup company in the Boston area developing a web app to help families and professional caregivers share care plans, schedules, tasks, health data, notes, and communications. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bacancy Technology?

The senior population is growing rapidly, and 1 out of every 5 seniors over the age of 65 needs help with activities of daily living. Tracking and coordinating care can be time-consuming and stressful for families, who often have no good way to communicate with professional caregivers or see how their aging loved ones are doing.

We were looking to create a new web-based app that would allow families to communicate with their professional caregivers who were taking care of seniors in their homes. We needed a vendor to build the solution completely from scratch. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

In this project, we provided Bacancy with wireframes and mockups for what we wanted. They provided a detailed scope of work based on these mockups. They did all of the frontend and backend development of the app.

Right now, the app is a web portal. It allows us to enter information about all of our clients and caregivers. Everybody can see the care plan and client information—their needs, their preferences, and allergies or conditions that they have. Tasks are set up for the caregivers to complete every day or on an ad hoc basis. Everybody can see what the tasks are on a daily basis, and then the caregivers check off tasks as they complete them. Also, caregivers can record health data or observations about the patient like their temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, weight, and anything like shortness of breath, dizziness, or increased frailty. That’s all fully customized, depending on the client. Users can also share notes for both clients and caregivers. Often, a family member is the direct client supporting the caregiver because the seniors may have Alzheimer’s disease or dementia and not be able to advocate for themselves.

Through a chat-style function in the app, caregivers can share notes about how the patient is doing or questions or concerns that they have. The family members can share notes about tasks, things they want the caregiver to pay special attention to, or feedback.

The app is built in Ruby and React JS. We have a project manager/Scrum master, 2 frontend and 2 backend developers, and a testing person.

How did you come to work with Bacancy Technology?

We looked at quite a few companies. We had bids and proposals from at least 3 other providers. We weren’t satisfied, which is why we hired Bacancy Technology. Our CTO had prior experience working with them and recommend them for our project. They also had the most competitive price and the right resources to complete all aspects of our project on a tight schedule.

How much have you invested with Bacancy Technology?

We’ve spent about $35,000 or $40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in March 2017, and the relationship is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

We’re going into beta testing right now. We have a product that works, and we’re getting really good feedback about the app. People like the interface. The app does what it’s supposed to do, and we’ve been sharing it with potential customers. A few people want to beta test it with us so far. We’re pretty pleased.

How did Bacancy Technology perform from a project management standpoint?

They performed well. This is the first time that we’ve worked with them. We had to develop a cadence that worked well after a few little bumps in the beginning, but the work has been going well. They’ve been really helpful in terms of managing the project and keeping track of all the different features, bug fixes, and things like that. We use Trello to communicate.

What did you find most impressive about Bacancy Technology?

We were pleased to see how quickly the project developed from concept to a working product. The development team easily grasped what we were trying to accomplish and made it happen.

We’re not technical people, so I’m not able to evaluate the code specifically. But, in general, they work fast and are able to create what we want. There are always bugs, but we received a lot of features quickly and the right functionality.

Are there any areas Bacancy Technology could improve?

In the beginning, we didn’t feel the communication was always clear regarding the next steps. This affected priorities, from our perspective, of the different things that we wanted to work on. As a result, the scope was a bit off. We didn’t get quite as much from the first phase of development as we expected. But, overall, we’ve been pretty happy.

Feedback summary: 

Google Analytics shows that the website is performing well; the platform is mobile-responsive and easy to modify. Bacancy is available any time via online communication to a project lead who has been with the project for years. For free, they trained the marketing department on how to use the site.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Xenatus Global is a Microsoft certified partner that implements ERPs globally, and we are also an ISV that builds products for Microsoft and distributes them globally. I am the managing partner.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bacancy Technology?

Our website was outdated and our hosting provider that we were using prior to them was constantly being hacked. We needed somebody to rebuild our website in modern technology and to host our website in a secure model.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We outsourced our web development of our website to them. We designed the website in-house and then we needed to provide it somebody that was going to figure out all the technical aspects of our website and architect it, design in, and then build it for us. After doing that, they hosted our website in their hosting platform, and they support us with any enhancements or any new features or things that we need on our sites.

Our website is a complete corporate profile of what we do and how we do it. It also is a location that attracts our resellers, because we have network of over 200 resellers around the world that buy the products from us and they implement them to end customers. We also needed a part portal where the party is able to login, get access to their products, solutions, marketing materials and so on. Bacancy did an end-to-end platform for us.

How many resources have been assigned to your project?

We interacted with at least five people when we were going through our website implementation. 

How did you come to work with Bacancy Technology?

We have been working with them for so many years, that I actually forgot how we got introduced to them. I think they were referred to us through a friend. When we first engaged them, what we did was that we asked them to do a small prototype on a mobile application that we were building. After that, we asked them to do some more web work and we gave them little bits and pieces to see their capabilities, and they did a very good job. Once they did a good job, then we started to give them more work.

How much have you invested with Bacancy Technology?

We have spent between $10,000 and $50,000 over the course of our relationship.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in 2013, and the work is ongoing. We are about to engage them in a new phase of our website.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

This is a corporate platform. I’m not an online store, so I’m not tied to the performance of my website. It is more of a corporate image for us and an informational site. I can tell you from my Google Analytics, our website does very well. It’s fast. It’s mobile-supportive so our website transforms on whatever type of platform that you are using. They architected our site and our overall solution to be very modular. I can actually take bits and pieces depending on what I want to load and where I want to keep it and they made our CMS, which is WordPress, in such a way that it enables to very easily add and remove and do things on it that used to take us a long time before. More important than any of this, the reason we moved over to them was that we were being hacked before many times. Whatever they’ve done, I am very happy with it. We have had no downtime.

How did Bacancy Technology perform from a project management standpoint?

One feature about Bacancy that I can highlight is their support. They are extremely responsive to us. I can call them any hour of the day, 365 days year, and they respond back to us within the hour. They have an engineer available to do whatever it is that I ask.

Our communication has been done online. There is no in-person interaction. They assigned a project lead to us when we first got started. The same project lead that was assigned to us day one is still the same person that we reach out to whenever we want enhancements, changes, feature changes, or anything. I like the fact that they’ve maintained consistency throughout it. This way I don’t have to re-explain everything anytime we need something.

Everything we do, we do on a six-month basis, so I don’t have any budget implications. They deliver within the time frames that we’ve needed. I don’t remember if our large project was delivered on time or if it was delivered ahead of schedule, but I know they were not late. Any current things that we ask for they always work on it immediately, and they roll it out for us as soon as possible.

What did you find most impressive about Bacancy Technology?

The most impressive part about Bacancy is their support. Their support has been very different than all other providers. We’ve worked with many other providers because we update our website almost every other year. Other providers were really difficult and the support was the same. Bacancy is very responsive to what we want. They are very considerate of how things happen, and they are very patient. I’ve changed my marketing people over the last couple of years. The new marketing people that I’ve brought on board, Bacancy has trained them on how to administer and how to work on our platform at no charge to us which is something I am not used to.

Are there any areas Bacancy Technology could improve?

They could add to their toolset by providing design services. When we had our website designed, I engaged the designer that did the initial design and the usability of our applications. Then that was delivered to Bacancy so they could implement it. Then throughout the evolution of the site, if they had a designer in-house that was able to help me with more aesthetic things, then I would have relied on them 100% instead of having to constantly contract designers that can help me when we needed that.

Feedback summary: 

Shortly after launching, the finished app has already attracted 20 regular customers, thanks to Bacancy Technology’s user-friendly design. The team’s broad competencies, impeccable responsiveness, and quick incorporation of feedback continue to strengthen the partnership.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Bringur is an on-demand delivery application that allows customers to purchase local goods and have them delivered to their door. Items ranging from restaurant food, alcohol, groceries, and snacks can all be ordered and delivered via the customer’s smartphone. The application helps connect customers with drivers in the area who go to the shops, purchase the items, and deliver them to the listed addresses. Currently, the application is only available in the city of Waterloo, Canada, and the target customer is mainly young professionals.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bacancy Technology?

I had an idea for an app after observing the success of on-demand delivery in America. I thought it would be successful in Canada. Most apps either specialize in on-demand restaurant delivery, alcohol delivery, or grocery delivery. Bringur combines all those features in a single platform. I had a few mockups and needed development assistance.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They are creating the application from start to finish, including an admin website, application development, and the server database. They created an iOS version for the customer Bringur app and the driver app.

The drivers get paid through a unique method on the platform. The customer lists the items they want, and the driver doesn’t know the price until he or she reaches the shop and sees the price. The driver writes down the prices for the customer, and when the customer agrees to the price, the credit card transaction is done. The signup process is user-friendly and simple.

How did you come to work with Bacancy Technology?

I contacted Bacancy after I found a similar ride-sharing application they’d made that impressed me. I sent them an email asking for a virtual meeting, and they responded immediately. I communicated to them my idea, and they drafted a proposal for me, including mockups and timelines. I admired their professionalism. Once a price was agreed on, they began work immediately.

What is the status of this engagement?

I started working with them in October of 2016, and the first phase of the project is complete. We’re currently talking about making additions to the app.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

I have been extremely impressed with Bacancy. They designed exactly what I asked for. The app has just launched. So far, I have 20 customers who regularly order on the app. The app is user-friendly and has few bugs.

How did Bacancy Technology perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated daily through Skype and email. If something was urgent, we talked on the phone.

What did you find most impressive about Bacancy Technology?

They have a large yet competent team, so every field of development had a different expert working on it. For example, the user interface was completed by a developer, the server databases were completed by another developer, and so on. This feature was missing from other organizations I communicated with.

Are there any areas Bacancy Technology could improve?

They’re happy to make changes right away. I’ve worked with other freelance groups that would complain about making changes. Bacancy’s communication was great, and they responded within a day, even on weekends.

Bacancy Technology shows commitment to producing high-quality solutions. Everyone is available, from the top management down to the developers. They respond well to changing timelines and manpower requirements. However, some of the developers need to improve their English communication skills.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am a managing partner of a company that provides software development services, specifically app and web development.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bacancy Technology?

We needed more resources to complement our in-house development team. We wanted a vendor who could deliver quality software and be available in terms of communication. We were looking for a company with which we could maintain a long-term relationship, which was why we reached out to Bacancy.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We are working with Bacancy to support some of our clients. We have built several mobile applications together. All of our projects with Bacancy involved custom applications, which depended on what the customer wanted to do. These solutions were different from each other and had no common functionalities. In terms of technology, we’ve worked with Android, iOS, PHP, and .NET. The PHP projects also had JavaScript involved.

One of our projects with Bacancy was an iPad application. It had been started by another developer, but we didn’t like their commitment level on that task. We shifted to Bacancy for coding and creating subsequent versions. They also worked on a portal that talks to the iPad application, which was not available in the initial version. Once we partnered with Bacancy, we incorporated that portal for the second version of the app. It was completed recently.

Bacancy also took over another project, which involved developing iOS and Android apps for phones and tablets. This project includes a portal that communicates with all 4 applications. We continue to work with them for additional upgrades.

We’ve built several web portals with Bacancy. One of them was completed in late 2015 or early 2016. They used PHP technology. Bacancy did a good job on these portals as well.

We also worked with them for 6–7 months on a .NET project. We used 4–5 developers, depending on the need. That project ended in mid-2016.

How did you come to work with Bacancy Technology?

Our past experience working with other partners had been less than ideal, so I reached out to several companies. Bacancy’s owner reached out to me after seeing an ad I posted. We started with a small project, which they did quite well. I also liked the fact that Bacancy was a relatively larger company, with a number of developers we could work with.

How much have you invested with Bacancy Technology?

I believe that we have spent around $47,000 on Bacancy’s work.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Bacancy Technology either in late 2015 or early 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

So far, the engagement has been going well. Bacancy does good work, and they are flexible when clients change their requirements.

One particular project went on for quite some time, mainly because of issues from the client side. Despite the schedule changes, Bacancy patiently worked with us and the client for the same payment we agreed on. That mobile app was completed in 2016.

I don’t have specific numbers, given that it’s all custom development work. One of the apps we’ve built for a Fortune 500 company received positive feedback from the client. They really liked the app. It provides easy access to many of their data points and documents, allowing them to find specific information quickly. They no longer have to go to their website and search through multiple documents. Given how user-friendly it is, they have been using that app frequently. We are making updates to the app.

How did Bacancy Technology perform from a project management standpoint?

I can trust Bacancy with the work and the day-to-day responsibilities. From my experience, all the projects have had challenges, and Bacancy works with us on issues that came up. We use Asana as a project management tool. For voice communication, we mostly use Skype. I like to have video calls as well for better communication. Bacancy’s team is available. I can reach out to their managers and developers. I have a technical background, so I like the fact that I can work with the developers directly. Most of them have been responsive and easy to deal with. They’re quite good in terms of technical skills.  If we have issues with a particular developer, I can always talk to the managers. They will go out of their way to assign someone else or talk to that developer.

What did you find most impressive about Bacancy Technology?

I have been impressed with the fact that Bacancy takes projects seriously. I want to make sure that we can deliver what we promise, and Bacancy is our partner in that.

Are there any areas Bacancy Technology could improve?

I communicate with them in English, and I have provided feedback for some of the developers around their language skills. They can speak English, but not at a level at which I feel comfortable. While it’s not true for all the developers—and I am comfortable talking to their principal—some of them don’t get the nuances of what I’m trying to say. It can be quite frustrating. This is the main thing that Bacancy can improve on. They are working on it, but it’s hard for them to find developers with good technical skills who also have equally good English communication skills. I last spoke to them about this a year ago, and they told me they were trying to hold internal English classes. I don’t know if they are doing it, but it’s something they can improve on.

Users now have more flexibility and can use the software that Bacancy Technology created on any device, thanks to it being fully online. The 6–7 person team involved excelled at project management and communication, and delivered a thorough requirements document which helped the project succeed.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the director of Accountancy. It’s one of the most recognized companies working with UK tax authorities. We provide a software used for filing tax forms.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bacancy Technology?

We were looking to develop a detailed tax calculation software with some interactive and artificial intelligence components.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Bacancy Technology has developed our web application. They designed the tax forms and calculation modules and it allows users to file their own taxes. More than being a static website, our platform has around 250 pages and a MySQL database.

We have worked with six or seven people from their team, including designers and backend and frontend developers.

How did you come to work with Bacancy Technology?

We were specifically looking for an Indian-based software house. We approached three different companies and asked for quotations. Bacancy Technology seemed to be the right fit.

How much have you invested with Bacancy Technology?

The cost of development was around £7,000 [US $8,925]. There were additional costs during the development.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Bacancy Technology in February 2013. The project ended in December after eight or nine months of development. We had ongoing maintenance for one year.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

There were some small changes that we needed to make to the application after it was launched, but we had no issues in terms of processes or communication. Bacancy Technology built a completely new solution for us. The components we had in place were only desktop applications, but the new version is completely online.

Desktop applications are right for accountants, but general users want more flexibility for doing taxes. This is what we have provided to clients, allowing them to use the platform on any device.

How did Bacancy Technology perform from a project management standpoint?

I was in communication with their project manager 3 times a week. Bacancy Technology put together a 7-page requirements document detailing what each of our parties needed to provide at different stages. The project was managed very well. There was also a tracking tool in place beyond the regular interactions we had over Skype and TeamViewer.

What did you find most impressive about Bacancy Technology?

Sometimes, it can be difficult to explain what we want given the distance between our groups, but Bacancy’s team knows how to put the right people on the right project. The team was helpful and had great in-depth knowledge.

Are there any areas Bacancy Technology could improve?

As an Indian-based company, English is not their first language. This impacted communication, but they have had in-house training for the staff on interacting with overseas clients. The issue is not that significant.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the creative director and owner of MixTape Creative, a digital marketing agency targeting small and medium-sized business. I have a number of contractors and people working with me.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bacancy Technology?

Initially, I was looking for someone to help with customization for a WordPress solution. I needed a competent and dynamic development team to support our business. Many people can work in different verticals, but when I talked to Bacancy, I realized they were the 1-stop shop that I needed. They took our projects to the next level and offered solutions that I didn’t expect from an agency that works specifically with WordPress. They impressed me with their ability to provide diverse solutions, which helped me broaden the services that I offer.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They work alongside our internal team. The bulk of our work with them involves custom WordPress solutions. I work with a lot of small businesses outside of Toronto. They easily answered all of our WordPress problems. We had a few bigger builds that were in PHP, which is something I couldn’t provide without Bacancy’s help. I talk to the team leader to give them an idea of what I need, and they provide solutions or ideas. We talk with the client, and Bacancy puts together a design and idea that we pitch. We go from there until we finish the project. Over the years, they’ve helped me through a couple of difficult spots.

We don’t do many customized features on the sites, but a few projects were really difficult in terms of algorithms and functionality.

How did you come to work with Bacancy Technology?

I asked for help finding someone on my Facebook and Twitter accounts. Bacancy reached out to me. I had a long talk with a person in Toronto. He’s a really nice guy, and we got along well. I met with him, and he had a good understanding of what I provide for smaller businesses. His team was accommodating, and I enjoyed working with all of them.

How much have you invested with Bacancy Technology?

We spent between $10,000 and $50,000. Bacancy handles each project, regardless of size, with the same respect and importance.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in October of 2014, and the work is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

Bacancy always delivered on time, within budget, and usually ahead of schedule. Our clients and others are really happy with Bacancy’s work. Their design team is solid. Conversely, my design team started a specific project that I handed over to Bacancy, and they worked with what we provided. We didn’t do a lot of e-commerce or other metric-generating tasks. Instead, we introduced people to e-commerce and taught them how to implement it into their site.

How did Bacancy Technology perform from a project management standpoint?

We’re just finishing a project now, and I’m really happy. I can speak to the local guy in Toronto all day. We get along well, and he has a good understanding of what I need and explains everything to his project managers so they can hand it off. The project managers have been fantastic. They’re really easy to reach on Skype or email, and they complete work quickly. We set dates for follow-up calls. If something doesn’t go the way we want it to, they listen to feedback and fix it.

What did you find most impressive about Bacancy Technology?

They have a massive team on the backend that can build anything we want. Communication is the most important part of any project. I’m impressed by their ability to understand difficult ideas and build them effectively.

Are there any areas Bacancy Technology could improve?

I’ve been happy with everything they’ve done. My projects haven’t been terribly difficult for the level of work they do. They should just keep doing what they’re doing.

Feedback summary: 

Bacancy never failed to deliver high-quality work, quickly. They required little direction, and were professional, friendly, and accommodating. The entire team communicated well throughout the project, and specific accomplishments were presented every day at regular meetings.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Wineclubz provides US and Australian wineries an additional direct-to-consumer channel for attracting and maintaining wine club members. Browser and mobile applications allow for search and maintenance of a club portfolio, and a check-in to winery tasting rooms, allowing for targeted marketing.

I am the creator, founder and primary developer for the project, which has been ongoing for a couple years.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bacancy?

There are close to 9,000 wineries in the United States alone, and a significant portion of them have wine clubs—memberships where participants receive shipments of wine at varying intervals throughout the year, in addition to member-only events held at the winery and varying locations. Typically, new members are obtained only after a physical visit to a winery tasting room. Wineclubz allows visibility within and outside the tasting room, allowing an additional channel for new memberships, membership retention, and wine sales.

I wanted to develop the mobile application using React Native, so there would be one code base for both iOS and Android platforms so I did not have to hire 2 resources to develop directly on the native platforms.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The project scope involved development of a mobile application, implementation of the specifications and API I provided. Bacancy was responsible for the software development during the 1-month contracted period.

How did you come to work with Bacancy?

I discoed Bacancy via a Google search, looking for react native contractors. I immediately liked Bacancy because their Senior Business Development Manager, Harshil Sanghavi, contacted me personally, walked me through the process, communicated very well, and gave me a real time video tour of their facility. I was also attracted to the nature and support of just how well his employees were treated.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

I don’t yet have metrics.

How did Bacancy perform from a project management standpoint?

I am very, very satisfied with Bacancy. I was assigned a specific resource who worked full time on my project for the contracted 160 hours for the month. He was professional, friendly, supportive, experienced, and required very little direction. The application was coded exactly to my specifications. The entire team was easy to work with, communicated well and reported at the end of every day the specific items accomplished. My hope is that with this mobile application, wineries will see added value in Wineclubz and begin to subscribe, creating revenue and viral growth.

What did you find most impressive about Bacancy?

I was impressed at just how quickly the deliverables took form, creating the app I desired, on time and within budget.

Are there any areas Bacancy could improve?

I cannot express enough great things about this experience. The communication was outstanding, friendly, professional, accommodating, and I now have both an iOS and Android application to submit to the community. I am very happy with Bacancy, and will most certainly look to them again in the future for additional development when needed.

Feedback summary: 

Bacancy’s team, once they were up to speed with the project, ran smoothly. They’ve never missed a deadline and they’re hard-working. Their developers and designers work together closely and efficiently. They’re easy to get a hold of, and will work weekends to meet major milestones.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We have an online community for kids and teens. I’m the vice president.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bacancy Technology?

We built wireframes and had some designs for our desktop site and our mobile site, but we needed a single responsive site. We needed a team who could take the main design templates, integrate them together and build out the remaining pages.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had built out wireframes and PSDs [Photoshop Documents] and we needed someone to build out the remaining HTML and design a couple of pages to integrate it into our code base. We’re three months into the project now. The services they provided were development, design, and SEO. They recommended using Bootstrap 3 for the technology. They provide project managers, developers, two designers, and a project manager for SEO.

How did you come to work with Bacancy Technology?

I was looking for a Ruby on Rails organization that had designers and developers and weren’t strictly frontend developers or backend developers. I wanted the ability for the developer to work with the designer on the integration versus having back and forth between different companies with a designer here and a developer there. There can be a large disconnect and a huge waste of time. Having all the skill sets under one umbrella can be hard to find. A lot of companies say they can do it all, and they usually can’t. I did a lot of research and found Bacancy Technology.

How much have you invested with Bacancy Technology?

The project has cost $6,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in February 2017, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

We’ve made good progress despite working remotely. After some time to get up to speed, we’ve hit all the major milestones so far. All the major pages are completed, and we’re now working on additional pages. We both could have benefitted from a longer planning phase, and we’re providing a lot of hands-on management, but they deal with everything very well. They go above and beyond to make sure things are completed on time. They work extra or weekends to make sure it’s done. They’re a very nice and hard-working team to have as part of our project.

How did Bacancy Technology perform from a project management standpoint?

I talk with the developers and designers daily through Slack, email, or shared documents. I deal mostly with the PM on our side so I don’t know how much Bacancy’s team does. I assume it’s going well because they’re completing all the tasks. We use Pivotal Tracker internally.

What did you find most impressive about Bacancy Technology?

I’m impressed with how closely the developers and designers work together, which I find rare.

Are there any areas Bacancy Technology could improve?

I can’t think of anything.
