Feedback summary: 

As the unofficial in-house development team, BEON regularly achieves the client’s standards of quality. They continue to refine their skills and research new technologies to keep the platform’s stack up to date. Heavy engagement from a project management standpoint further smoothes the workflow.

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 co-founder of Legal Decoder, a legal invoice analytics software company. Our offering is a SaaS software solution that takes invoice data and runs it through a rules engine.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BEON Tech Studio?

We were looking to build the third version of our engine that includes external-facing APIs, and needed additional development resources to achieve that goal.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

BEON is developing the pieces that go around the version-three engine. We use a fully Microsoft stack: it’s a C# application hosted in Azure that uses Azure SQL as its backend database. We’re in the process of moving that database to Azure Cosmos DB, one of Microsoft’s cloud offerings.

We’re changing the technology for scalability. In addition, many customers want to work with us programmatically without any humans in the process. We also want to open the API to the public and let clients pull data into their own internal systems.

BEON does development in C#. They have been building more backend processes and how the APIs will interact internally. Now they’re working on the client-facing UI that will control and run the engine.

What is the team composition?

We started with one developer who has been fantastic. Then we brought in a second developer to help us and to start the UI work. There’s also a project manager.

How did you come to work with BEON Tech Studio?

It was a referral from another entrepreneur of a startup I was familiar with.

What is the status of this engagement?

The partnership began in August of last year and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The quality of work is fantastic. BEON is pretty much our development team. One of our in-house teammates is leading the effort, but BEON’s project manager works with me and our VP of development to define each two-week sprint and stay on schedule.

The backend developer researches the technologies that we’re using, which involve brand-new materials as well as proprietary technologies. He brings up a lot of valid concerns around our decisions and recommends different paths we can take. The team is very smart and driven and can deliver stuff on time and of high quality.

How did BEON Tech Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

Our project manager is great. She set up stand-up calls three days a week and drives the scheduling, taking a load off my plate. She has no problem with reaching out. When there are different ideas, she’s a great mediator to keep the discussion going.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The competence and intelligence of BEON’s developers are better than any outsourcing company I’ve worked with in the past. They can speak clearly and concisely about issues and have no problem raising any concerns. They also get our industry, which is not a common one. They’re even helping our summer intern get up to speed on the work he’s doing.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I’m overall incredibly pleased. I’d recommend BEON to anyone who asks.

Any advice for potential customers?

Having a project manager in place has definitely been a big help for us in making sure we don’t go off the rails.

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 COO of IonSupply, a supply chain tracking platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BEON Tech Studio?

We were working with another outsourced development agency that was developing too slowly for us. BEON stepped in and got us the right kind of development process for our company’s stage and corporate growth.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

BEON works for us on a time and material basis. They provided development resources at first, but that grew into project engineering with support to product management. They also supply QA resources and UI/UX expertise.

They develop in the Angular framework, Goa, and Golang for the backend.

What is the team composition?

We work with seven people.

How did you come to work with BEON Tech Studio?

We considered other companies with good references. BEON came to us through a successful entrepreneur that has launched several startups that have made it to a positive exit.

How much have you invested with them?

We currently pay about 1$5,000–$20,000 per month. That rate’s increased since we first started, and I expect it will go up to $40,000–$50,000 per month as we continue to work together. I estimate we’ve spent about $175,000–$200,000 on their services since the start.

What is the status of this engagement?

We made introductions in December 2018 and started development in January or February 2019. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have a very large customer that’s come in because of the functionality BEON helped us develop. We’re also pursuing an even larger customer because of their help. BEON helps translate our vision into firm requirements and then execute on them with minimal rework needed, whether that’s due to bugginess in stack or an incomplete scope. We usually nail everything within 1–2 sprints.

How did BEON Tech Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re always punctual and willing to stretch to meet their commitments. If BEON is falling behind because a sprint had a larger scope than we expected, they’ll push and work overtime in order to meet the full commitment. They also do very well in leverage the philosophy of story points in order to create realistic scopes of work that are not full of fat or cushion. They still can get pretty ambitious but tend to meet them by executing efficiently or stretching to meet it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciate the commitment they show as a team along with the full range of services they provide. The strength of their project management is also a supplement to higher-level management functions in a startup.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, there’s nothing I would call out. The stability of the team is excellent. We’ve had the same developers for the whole time we’ve worked with them. 

Any advice for potential customers?

Communicate openly with their project management personnel. The people are well versed in taking the product vision and turning it into project structure.

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 a software development studio.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BEON Tech Studio?

I was looking for a Reactive Native developer and mobile engineering expertise. They provided me with an engineer as a staff augmentation service.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided the engineering resource to our team, making sure that the individual was the right resource for our company before passing them to us. Once the engineer was selected, they integrated into the team pretty simply. They joined our Slack channel and project management tools. That person functioned as my employee for this project. 

What is the team composition?

I had two main points of contact for this project. 

How did you come to work with BEON Tech Studio?

I found them on Clutch. After reaching out to hear more about their services and pricing, they seemed like a good fit. 

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent about $13,000 on their services so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project began in February 2020 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They were able to find a resource relatively quickly. To meet our client’s expectations, we needed a React Native developer pretty fast. After reaching out to them and explaining my need, they provided me with someone in a short turnaround time and at a good rate. Additionally, they went out of their way to make sure they were the right resource for us.  

How did BEON Tech Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

The developer himself has been easy to communicate with. They’ve conformed to project management tools and mediums that I require to communicate properly. We communicated through Slack, Jira, video chat, and in-person. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They provide high-quality customer service and are trustworthy. I knew I could count on them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I can’t think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

During an early call with them, communicate your needs clearly. That will allow them to take the time to find the right candidate for the project.

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 CEO and founder of Evvnt. We provide an events marketing platform for event creators and media publishers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BEON Tech Studio?

We needed help with direct development services.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

BEON Tech Studio provides developers to accomplish the tasks I set out for them. When I need a developer, they will hire one, and manage them against the project. We have a monthly fee, and we provide tools like Jira, hosting, and everything else. 

They’re working on our core platform, a “submit one, publish everywhere” service that is desktop-based and hosted on AWS. It has over 4,600 event listing sites and calendars that sit within an algorithm. When someone submits an event to our site or to a calendar—which we host with news, radio, and TV stations globally—the algorithm looks at which event listing sites will want that content, so that we can publish it. 

Aside from that service, the tech has to do a ton of other things involving payment and transactions through Stripe. We’re trying to make a one-stop-shop for event creators and publishers—our major stakeholders. They need dedicated interfaces with multiple tools and features to promote and publish events, including syndication, email, SMS, messaging, calendars, content widgets, add-event URLs, an editorial CMS, and a sales CRM.

BEON Tech Studio has been involved in a variety of tasks. They’re building out functionality to manage payments, billing, and invoices via Stripe transactions and Xero. We just finished migrating the primary task of developing our event creator and publisher environment. Technically, BEON Tech Studio is running the full stack. We’ve spent a lot of time training the developers and building practical technology. For each task, we provide wireframes and technical documentation alongside one of their testers. 

My goal for next year is to gear up the team size and move to a more advanced SaaS platform that uses AI for automated campaign creation. We want to replicate the kind of service you’d get from a major marketing agency, but at an affordable price point in the local market, for a local event. There’s a lot of pieces to our tech roadmap, ranging from very basic invoicing needs, through to product requirements.

What is the team composition?

Their organization provides me with a project manager, a tester, and a full-time developer. They’re the core of our development, project management, testing, and design. I aim to get 5–6 developers from them.

How did you come to work with BEON Tech Studio?

We were relocating our business from London to the US. Our development resource at the time was in Poland, and the time zone difference wasn’t working for us. We were looking to find a resource in the US time zone that was still cost-effective. Buenos Aires was a good time zone and as affordable as Europe. That’s how we came across BEON Tech Studio.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $80,000 so far. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with BEON Tech Studio in April 2019, and they’re still our full-time remote development team. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Just as we started with BEON Tech Studio, we took a different approach to development, going from a two-week development cycle to releasing code twice a week, It’s an incredibly agile approach. We also moved the methodology to Kanban, which supported this constant release methodology. Through BEON Tech Studio, we get developers to develop code, and a lead tester to test it. When it works well, we can release lots of code very quickly. The testing doesn’t slow us down at all.

Overall, we’re churning out more code, allocating more projects, and progressing development at a faster speed. We have three times the code output today than when we had another 2–2.5 developers on the project. BEON Tech Studio plays a role in that, and so does our new methodology. The tester was also a critical part of our ability to output development. We’ve launched more projects and improved the technology more in the last 10 months than within the whole of last year.

As the CEO, I spend one hour every week doing training with a developer. That’s very unusual, but this way, they get to ask questions as we’re building their understanding of the platform. I believe that the team at BEON Tech Studio has bought into the purpose of our development. Because of that and their fluency in English, I can have a solid conversation with them about what we’re doing, and they will advise me on better ways of doing it. We have an unusual and exceptional relationship with the development team they’ve provided so far. 

How did BEON Tech Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve had some challenges in this respect. The original project manager was one of the founders, but that wasn’t working, so they brought in another project manager. The project managers we’ve had, who were very good very quickly, were historically project managers in the organization. BEON Tech Studio has had to hire new project managers, have them learn their system, and then have them learn ours. There’s a slight language barrier with our current project manager. 

The project management could be a bit better, but because I’m so heavily involved in the project as a project manager and the CEO, it’s quite hard to take over my role fully. I’d love to step back and give them more project management ownership, but, at the same time, having someone spend 15–30 minutes every week, project managing a team, they’d struggle to project manage the team with the visibility that I have. I’m probably part of the reason it’s not as good as it could be—I have an overbearing role in the project. They’re still doing a good job.

In terms of tools, we use an Excel sheet for general team and project management. That works against tickets and tasks inside Jira.

What did you find most impressive about them?

What I like about BEON Tech Studio is that they hire interesting, talented, and thoughtful developers. They contribute back to the plan, as opposed to just coding. That’s very valuable.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I told Damian (Co-Founder, BEON Tech Studio) that BEON Tech Studio is nothing without their ability to hire competent developers. If I get a bad developer, then BEON Tech Studio is a bad service. His first two hires have been exceptional, which means that my opinion of BEON Tech Studio is outstanding. If he goes and hires the next developer, and they’re terrible, it will change my opinion of that agency. 

To date, he’s provided me very good development, and it’s had a massive impact on our business. It’s a combination of methodology and good, reliable individuals who enjoy working. I hope that the next two developers they deploy in January come with the same skillset. It’s been very good so far.

Feedback summary: 

Internal stakeholders are pleased with how BEON Tech Studio has acquitted themselves on this unique project. Their proactive communication and willingness to take over a codebase from a previous vendor are notable. Customers can expect an eager team with direct communication.

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 CEO of Bushman Studios. We're an agency that works with a lot of small businesses—entrepreneurs who are looking to build technical products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BEON Tech Studio?

I was looking for a competent team to help me tackle these bigger projects I was starting to get. That vendor needed to come in and seamless take over a couple of my projects.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They've provided me with software development, product management, and UX/UI design. Though it’s been mostly straightforward development, they’ve been really good at coming up with ideas to improve the product itself. Across a couple of projects, we’ve pretty much conquered every kind of platform.

They provide wireframes on a project-by-project basis. Sometimes I come to them with just an idea, and sometimes it’s a little more scoped out. If the end-customer wasn't technically savvy, then BEON and I would come up with a technical outline, and then they'd go into the nitty-gritty documentation and the wireframes.

Our most recent project was a cross-platform solution for a Netflix-style company for documentary films. It’s a streaming video-on-demand platform. We're actually building an iOS app, an Android app (both phones and tablets), an Android TV app, an Apple TV app, a Samsung app, an LG app, and lots of smart TV apps. We are working on an Xbox app and Roku as well.

A lot of these platforms have proprietary systems for billing, so it’s challenging to synchronize across them. This is certainly the case when someone has canceled one service, or perhaps someone has subscribed again after canceling one service initially. BEON has done a really good job of figuring that out and making it work pretty seamlessly.

We now have apps across every platform, and that's evolving to new platforms on a monthly basis. It's been really challenging and exciting. The great thing about BEON is that even if they don't have actual experience with some of these platforms, they've been able to tackle them. They'll either find a developer who's had the experience with it or someone who is smart enough to figure it out.

How did you come to work with BEON Tech Studio?

I was looking for a team that was reputable and ideally based out of Argentina; I have a lot of connections down there. That's how I initially got connected to BEON.

We met through a mutual friend in New York and discussed working together. I looked at a couple of projects that they'd done before and decided to test them when I received a couple of smaller projects. We grew from there, which happened about four years ago.

This video project is a big project, as I said, and it involved a lot of platforms, but I had no doubt that they would be able to handle it.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $150,000 so far on this project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since October 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since they took over the project, the growth metrics have been great. We've been growing month-over-month, and a lot of the technical stuff that they brought to the table has really helped shore up the platform. It was actually inherited from another tech studio, and the codebase was not in the best condition, so a lot of the stabilization BEON did really helped out with customer retention. We've been doubling pretty much every month for the past 6–8 months.

How did BEON Tech Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

On the project management side, we use Slack and Trello. We also use LiveAgent for ticketing, Firebase, and Crashlytics. They’ve hit most of the deadlines, but when they can’t, you’ll get a plan to tackle it and an updated deadline which isn’t too far in the future. Missing the initial deadline happens with software sometimes. They’ll brief you on why it happened and get back on track.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Taking on the smart TV apps was a big challenge. There are not that many people who have done that before, and they were able to knock it out of the park. There were a few delays here and there with them getting used to the technology, but, in general, we're very happy with the way it worked out.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, to be honest. I have no complaints working with them. Throughout all the projects they’ve done, they’ve been straightforward. They don’t beat around the bush. If they missed a deadline, they came to us first to rectify it. Otherwise, they hit the targets efficiently.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the CEO and founder of Educasic.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BEON Tech Studio?

We hired BEON Tech Studio to build a web- and mobile app for a Connected Classroom that helps students in pre-K to fourth grade learn to read using a sight-based learning algorithm.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Although we provided the wireframes, they developed everything else, including the front- and backend of the mobile and web app. They started by looking at what we needed through a ticket system and assigning tasks. They took a lean stack approach, consistently performing QA, conducting more tests, and making adjustments, before eventually launching production. 

What is the team composition?

There were about three people on their team. Our CTO and I worked directly with their technical lead and their developers.

How did you come to work with BEON Tech Studio?

We’ve worked with them in the past, and all of those projects went really well. They are wonderful. Since the beginning, we knew that they would deliver the best product for us.

How much have you invested with them?

The platform has had a huge impact, especially for young students, kids with learning disabilities, and students learning English as a second language. It is being used by 30,000 teachers and 150,000 students and parents across the United States.  

How did BEON Tech Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very attentive and communicative. They’re always readily available and they reply quickly. We use various communication and project management tools including Slack, Google Hangouts, Jira, WhatsApp, and Trello.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Not only are they the best and smartest in their field, they're always accessible regardless of what time zone they’re in. For example, they have a few team members in Argentina, but we are based in Pacific Time. Despite being four hours ahead of us, we are always able to reach them during our normal business hours. We also don’t have a language barrier between our team and theirs, so it’s very easy to communicate with them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not at this time. They’re great.

Feedback summary: 

BEON Tech Studio has phenomenal project management, with an organized and professional team that is responsive and communicative. They consistently meet goals and provide a transparent workflow that easily shows how they spend their 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 a co-owner of SoftServ, a mobile and web design, development, and consulting company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BEON Tech Studio?

We needed a partner to provide full-stack web and mobile dev and design.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’ve worked on numerous projects with BEON Tech Studio, usually providing lo-fi wireframes that they rely on to build hi-fi mockups. They’ve built iOS, Android, and web apps, using Swift, Java, and Angular respectively. Projects have ranged from a simple business website for a private equity firm to a logistics platform for the refrigerated freight industry.

What is the team composition?

Each project typically has one point of contact, but we can interface with whoever’s on the team.

How did you come to work with BEON Tech Studio?

We met them when we were both contracted by a different company to build the frontend and backend of their mobile product. We realized that BEON Tech Studio meshed well with our company culture and had superior communication, so we eventually partnered with them for our own work.

How much have you invested with them?

The current project will be well over $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our most recent project started in May 2018, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We don’t typically have specific KPIs, but whenever we outline deliverables and a roadmap, they keep on track. They’ve never had any issue completing our scope of work.

How did BEON Tech Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re incredibly communicative and provide constant updates. They use Trello, Jira, and Slack to manage the project, and I’m able to communicate directly with our assigned point of contact or any of the developers. Whenever the owners visit the U.S., they always arrange an in-person meeting with us to review projects and make sure we’re satisfied.

Their project management is even better than some of the in-house project managers we’ve hired for our own company. They have complete transparency and the highest level of professionalism. For billing, they keep detailed records of what’s been worked on and how much time it took, which makes it incredibly easy for us to provide feedback.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We’ve worked with teams from around the world, and BEON Tech Studio has been one of the best. They work quickly and help keep us competitive in the market.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of any ways they could improve.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

I don’t have any advice.

Feedback summary: 

BEON Tech Studio transformed the basic MVP into a groundbreaking app with a ton of innovative features. They used their phenomenal skills and infinite resources to deliver cutting-edge AI technology, which would be nearly impossible to find elsewhere.

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 am the managing director and CFO of a matchmaking company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BEON Tech Studio?

We were looking to improve our matchmaking services with AI-based app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Another developer had already built an MVP app for us, but we decided to go with BEON Tech Studio to make the full product. They expanded on our existing AI algorithm and conducted QA tests to verify that everything was working on the backend. In addition to adding the finishing touches, they were responsible for ongoing maintenance.

What is the team composition?

In the beginning, we worked with about four people within their organization. Now that they have completed the project, they have one person assisting us with maintenance.

How did you come to work with BEON Tech Studio?

One of our advisors had success with BEON Tech Studio in the past, so they referred us to them. That glowing recommendation, as well as their experience and affordable pricing, was the reason behind our hiring decision. 

How much have you invested with them?

To date, we have spent $50,100.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project started back in March 2017. They continue to make updates and resolve issues for us.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We would not have been able to build a web app with cutting-edge AI technology without BEON Tech Studio’s skills and resources. Having the matchmaking tool has been extremely beneficial for our business and sales.

How did BEON Tech Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

They were very responsive to our needs, even though we are based in different parts of the world. Trello was our technology of choice for communicating and sending files, but we occasionally used Skype and Google Hangouts to video chat.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We got a sense that they were genuinely interested in our project, because they went out of their way to find solutions that would improve our product. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

BEON Tech Studio should consider expanding their team to diversify their expertise. We had to use other vendors for some tasks because no one on their team specialized in what we needed.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

For any project, it’s important to make sure that there are enough time and resources to build the envisioned product.

Feedback summary: 

BEON Tech Studio’s developers are efficient, responsive, and affordable. They resurrected messy older code and brought greater stability to the platform. Even though emergency services weren’t in the contract, their team resolved a weekend server failure in order to ensure a smooth user experience.

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 vice president of a digital service that offers direct-to-consumer subscriptions for watching niche documentaries.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BEON Tech Studio?

Our service operates across many different platforms and devices, so we needed a development team that could handle a wide variety of tasks. We needed functionality on Android, iOS, and Roku devices, as well as on a standard website, in order to ensure that we offered a quality viewing experience. We were particularly interested in over-the-top apps.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our initial Android development was done by two teams at a different firm, so BEON had to learn to decipher it when they came in. The original project had taken so long that the code was out of date and disorganized— the BEON team consolidated it and migrated it into newer, more-stable coding languages like Kotlin. They did this so quickly that we were able to deploy new features faster and release an additional Android TV app. On top of that, they’ve also helped us deploy captions on ur software and provided customer support to our users.

What is the team composition?

We interact daily with Damian, one of the co-founders, who serves as the project manager for our account. There are also at least five Android, iOS, and Heroku developers, although I’m not sure if that’s all of them.

How did you come to work with BEON Tech Studio?

I knew one of the members of their leadership team from a prior project where he’d run the iOS development. Prior to hiring BEON, we’d always gone for fixed-scope projects with a set price, but we realized it was ineffective. On this contract, they’re working hourly just like in-house staff. Their team has the flexibility to scale up and down as needed, which really changed our development strategy. It’s much more affordable than our previous approach.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with BEON in March 2019 and we’re still working together.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re a new platform that’s only been offering service for less than a year, so bug-fixing is still a critical part of our routine in addition to pushing out new content. BEON has been really responsive on customer service issues related to bugs, which has helped us retain dedicated users and improve our ROI. They’ve repaired an iOS audio error and a bug in that caused users to lose items in their watch list. On top of that, they’re entirely responsible for creating our new Android TV app, so any growth there will be due to their work.

How did BEON Tech Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re affordable, fast, and good communicators. Even though their team is overseas, we’re in the same time zone and their grasp of English is excellent. They’ve integrated well into our Slack channel and their whole team feels like it’s part of ours. Their co-founder handles every level of the project, even down to customer complaints, and he manages everything efficiently.  I also appreciate how they encourage us to release updates quickly to seek customer feedback.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We once had a weekend incident where our servers went down at two in the morning. I came in on Monday expecting to start a disaster recovery, but BEON’s team had already restored server stability. They also provided a road map for making our platform run more smoothly in the future.

Our contract doesn’t have a line item for emergency services. They helped us because of the strong relationship we’d forged with them. They’ve never hesitated on any of the tasks they’ve been assigned. I really appreciate how hard they work. I’m actually nervous that they’ll become famous and get too busy to keep working with us!

Are there any areas they could improve?

I’d like it if they added a stronger consulting element to their services. Although they’re not experts in our specific industry, they have a broad view of it and exposure to other clients, and it would be nice to see them incorporate that into our project discussions. For example, I’ve encouraged them to challenge me on our feature orders—to reconsider our work priorities or speak up if a new technology stack or approach is better than the one we’ve chosen. They’re already strong when it comes to encouraging me to make new releases quickly, so this would improve our service even further.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Not that I can think of.
