The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Writers Block Corporation is dedicated to providing a platform for users to create engaging content. We're striving to create the right tools for users to utilize to deliver unique stories. I, Amit Kapoor, founded Writers Block Corporation because I'm constantly reading, whether its online or offline and I want to give back to this community.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire BigStep Technologies Pvt. Ltd.?

I hired BigStep Technologies Pvt. Ltd. for custom software development. This included, developing the mobile app from the ground-up to match my specified instructions and blueprints.

What were your goals for this project?

To create a mobile app that is verbatim to my vision for Writers Block. Delivering content to users in a way that is easily read without being too simple.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I did my own research regarding platforms for Social Networks that are easily customizable and are recognized by the industry, and from there, I found BigStep Technologies Pvt. Ltd. as one of the developers for the said platform I have chosen.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We communicated through email and Skype calls in order to establish what my vision is for Writers Block. Upon them agreeing that they are capable of helping me on my project, we commenced development.

We started initially on mimicking the UI as presented in my blueprints, to be more specific, I purchased a mobile app template from them and asked them to strip down a lot of the app's features (voice calling, maps, direct messaging) and trim it down according to my preference.

They were able to add Giphy functionality to the app which was a necessary requirement. We had many Skype calls in this duration where they also had great suggestions on how we can improve the user interface even further.

I needed them to create a custom form of content called 'Blocks', which are pieces of content that include both written text, a picture and an optional audio file. I also asked them to revamp the interface when browsing 'Blocks' in a way that's more enjoyable to the user.

What was the team composition?

The project included Aashi, the coordinator for the project, responsible for relaying my ideas, issues and suggestions and communicating with the other developers associated with developing the API.

Shubham, the main developer of the project, responsible for developing the front-end of the mobile app, testing and resolving bugs and issues and also providing suggestions on the logical steps to take for a more efficient development workflow.

The API team, which worked on key aspects of the app, mainly with the creation and submission of block posts and the custom features it requires. I was responsible for providing my blueprints and ideas, effectively communicating them with the team, reporting bugs and testing the app and controlling the overall direction of the app development process.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

This project is a fundamental part of my business, as I will need to create the best platform for my users to use so they can create the content they desire and read it comfortably.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They were quick to inform me of any delays and were very effective in finding solutions that both parties would agree on. The project coordinator assigned to me was available past work hours and constantly communicated with me to ensure everyone was on the same page regarding the development process.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their responsiveness, willingness to negotiate and work ethic. They updated me every single business day with a schedule on how the day will be spent, shared screenshots and videos, and were available for me to Skype and regularly report issues and suggestions to the developer.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I don't see much room for improvement from a business standpoint, they are able to create a mobile app with my blueprints and ideas in mind. They have been able to adhere to the time frame they proposed even if there are delays. There was an issue implementing Giphy functionality which was quickly sorted out through creative thinking from the developer.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a FinTech start up that’s creating a financial ecosystem for individual investors who haven’t previously been involved because they didn’t have the shared power and influence of a group. We’re a market network for self-directed investors that creates a community of shared influence and capital. We seek to give members access and pricing power to facilitate investments in public and private markets.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire BigStep Technologies Pvt. Ltd.?

We are using SocialEngine as part of our core platform, and BigStep Technologies Pvt. Ltd. helped us create unique solutions to meet our unique business processes.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a distinct Statement of work (SoW) to create new functionality on the foundation product.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

BigStep are highly regarded within the SocialEngine community. They have the largest positive reviews and have an extensive suite of custom add-ons.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

BigStep Technologies Pvt. Ltd. designed and delivered a custom solution for different member types within our social platform. The work was completed on the same PHP framework as SocialEngine and hosted within a Docker Container and AWS ECS (Amazon Elastic Container Service).

What was the team composition?

It was 100% offshore, so the outcome was based on the timeline. Their initial engagement was good, along with their ongoing communications. The team also completed the work on time and on budget.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The solution is core to our members on the platform. It allows them to set their privacy levels, which is a hot topic on social platforms right now.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project was fairly simple, so managing deliverables was not difficult. That said, I was happy with the communication and delivery schedule. Everything went to plan.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed with their good communication and the quality of their work.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Communication is generally out of hours (I'm based in San Francisco). It would be good to have someone working hours more aligned to at least a part of our business day, rather than conversations starting at 8 pm PST.
