Transforming Great Ideas Into Great Software

We started our humble beginnings in 2012. At that time, our founder Jyotirmay Samanta (we call him Joe), was working at Google in Silicon Valley.

Because of his close proximity with Silicon Valley entrepreneurs we landed up with few projects for early stage startups to architect, code and launch their SaaS based products with the help of a solid in-house development team back in India.

Response from those first batch of clients were so positive that our clients themselves started referring us to their business peers. That’s how purely from word of mouth we started getting our next round of customers.

In between Joe also moved from Google to Salesforce then to Amazon, collecting technical and business experience from some of the biggest names in the industry. This eventually helped to build world class business and technical practices in our company which fuelled dramatic growth for BinaryFolks in the ensuing years.

Excited with the phenomenal success of the company, Joe came back to join rest of the BinaryFolks team here in India in 2015. Though we started with a couple of startup customers, we now have a full spectrum of customers starting from startup companies all the way to large multinational companies with presences in multiple countries and thousands of people on their payroll.

Automated Amazon Repricing Browser Extension Image

Automated Amazon Repricing Browser Extension

Client's requirement :A Boulder (USA) based client wanted BinaryFolks to develop a chrome extension for Amazon sellers which can automate the profit optimization on Amazon by providing an efficient and automated dynamic pricing mechanism and the whole thing should work real-time in amazon sellers page itself. Solution : Running a business for a while made our client realize the meaning of competition and how difficult it is to

become the #1 in the niche. So, we developed a chrome extension for Amazon merchants to monetize revenue by reducing their time spent on monitoring competitor prices and by giving them a dynamic pricing strategy. Amazon sellers just need to create customized dynamic pricing rules for each product category, and our extension automatically updates the pricing values in accordance with those settings and dynamic pricing available in the market as well as historical trends. This extension is perfect for the Amazon sellers who want to keep track of pricing for their own products, and the products of their competitors.

Corporate eLearning Platform

Client's requirement : A Dubai based client requested Binaryfolks to develop a portal where corporate employees that completed certification trainings can book exams online to get a complete picture of their understanding of the subject. We were required to automate the refund process whereby, if a candidate appeared and passed an exam, he/she will get a refund and the vendor will get a reimbursement from the corporate

house.

 

Solution: BinaryFolks built a portal where corporate employees can register with their company email to search for exams that are relevant to the certification training program they took and register for the exams. The admins can mass import CSV files to the system containing email IDs and names of the candidates, thus pre-approving them of these exams , so that, the candidate can book exams automatically and doesn’t need to wait for the approval. Once, the results are published, they can upload the results to the portal and if they pass the exam, our system refunds the exam fee. We also developed an in-depth analytics tool that helps the admins visualize, monitor and assess the quality of the courses, progress of the candidates and analyze performance for each trainings under each vendor.

The main objective of this client (A canadian Transport integrator) was to create a robust travel management platform that is available 24x7. This gives freedom to potential visitors to book tickets anytime(as most tickets are booked outside working hours) from the comfort of their home and at the same time maximizes sales for the business. Client also wanted to give real time availability status of

SOLUTION

BinaryFolks developed this platform keeping three user perspectives in mind : Bus owners, administrator’s, and customer’s. This multi tenant application allows admins and bus owners manage destinations, publish transport routes, manage bus schedule, manage seat allocations and track ticket sales. Also, passengers can look up bus availability on specific dates and for specific routes, choose seats, select pickup and drop points and finally pay online and book the tickets. Once the tickets are booked, the journey also gets pre-populated on their calendar for easy reminder. If a customer needs to cancel the booking, they are offered partial ticket refund and once cancelled, the spot automatically opens up, giving another customer the chance to book it. Another inherent benefit of this platform is that passengers can see the other passenger’s reviews to judge the quality of service offered before they book.

CLIENT'S REQUIREMENT

Being a seller at Amazon, our client understood that negative reviews could potentially damage the prestige, profitability and trustworthiness of their business. The main objective of our client was to contact and communicate with the customers who placed negative reviews for their product on the Amazon review page. But, as there is no way to contact customers as contact information is not displayed

on the review pages, he wanted us to build an extension that leverages the deeply buried hidden relation inside Amazon page DOM and reveal the contact information and help identify the customer from the Amazon review page itself.

 

SOLUTION

This is a chrome and firefox browser extension that enables amazon sellers unearth hidden relationship between bad reviews and product orders and allows them to contact their customer directly in a single click of a mouse. To minimize the unauthorized use of the extension, it is only downloadable after the clients register with us.

travel routes from multiple agencies. There was a lot of security measures like unstructured dom, cross checking user mouse movements, cookie validation etc and we overcame all the challenges to provide the exact software that the client had in mind.

 

SOLUTION

When user inputs data in the metasearch engines to find the desired travel itinerary, we run a script in the background that scrapes all the possible routes and save them in a centralised database. We then aggregate the results into a list of available routes according to either cheapest price or least distance time. Users can then choose from those route options to find the best suitable path according to their preference.

BinaryFolks had to develop a software to compare statistics and build intuitive reports for multiple marketing campaigns across various websites so that it

allows the organizational leaders to access and interpret data to make highly informed decisions about their businesses quickly.

 

SOLUTION

This software collects data / information from Act-on and Octopost and pushes the stats to GeckoFeeder, where one can see different statistics for different campaigns all from one centralized dashboard. We enabled visual data representation on a dashboard where business heads can compare the statistics and reports in the form of visual charts and graphs and take informed decisions about their marketing campaigns.

CLIENT'S REQUIREMENT

The requirement of this Enterprise client based in Greater Boston Area was to develop an interactive discussion platform dedicated to controversial topics. It was paramount for our client to attract more visitors to the website and more importantly, retain those visitors. So, he wanted to develop a forum with lots of people all contributing and adding new posts and replies to generate enough

content. At the same time he required strong spam fighting and abuse control features as he was aware of the fact that forums are open target for spammers.

 

SOLUTION

BinaryFolks built an interactive discussion platform which is a combination of Wikipedia and the opinion page of Wall Street Journal. This platform lets users form constructive views supported by facts. Users take their time to research and consider their comments before replying and this makes for mostly high-quality discussion. Also, it allows for robust traffic volumes since people often return to the site on a regular basis to catch up on what's happening. It has a very intuitive structure and very rich editing interface. The commenting and version control features are really strong and sophisticated. It also has very neat notification, spam fighting and abuse control features. We also integrated adaptive payment feature with this application.

CLIENT'S REQUIREMENT

The client’s ( Vietnam focused shipping company ) objective for building this Shipping management application was to facilitate end-to-end process automation for his logistics company to improve quality, accuracy and precision. Having access to real time freight data and the ability to run reports, he can make better business decisions based on trends and history. Also, he wanted the customer to be

empowered to know exactly how much the freight will cost and when the freight will arrive through automatic notifications. One of the main requirements of the client was to keep the aesthetics of the website very minimalistic.

 

SOLUTION

BinaryFolks built a multi lingual shipping management application with corresponding backend functionality to enhance Customer experience and provide sophisticated functionalities like inventory management, automated transportation cost calculation, shipping cost payment, order management, invoice generation and order tracking. Based on package dimension and weight, the shipping charges are calculated in real time. Also there is the provision to provide the users with some special services, like package delivery email confirmation or bundled insurance etc. Users can pay through credit card or paypal. We have also added offline payment enabling individuals to pay for goods and services with cheque or cash payments.

CLIENT'S REQUIREMENT

A large real estate services giant wanted to develop a solution to automate indoor and outdoor field inspection for retail and enterprise customers, reduce manual errors and eventually cut down the whole delivery time dramatically without compromising the quality and reliability in the process.

 

SOLUTION

We built a multi layer access controlled field inspection mobile app

that several hundred field agents used to inspect indoor and outdoor locations, enter tons of data, draw electronic diagrams, embed photos in the reports, take pictures etc along with their location / date / time stamp etc. and generate reports based on various business logic. The application can store all data locally in absence of internet connectivity and sync with the backend systems when connectivity resumes. It can also rollout minor changes in the app without redeploying the app.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the national manager for innovation and technical services at Flick Anticimex, one of Australia’s leading pest control and hygiene companies with over 95 years of reliable, safe, and professional service. We have a presence in 17 countries and, with our 4,000 employees, we serve about 2.5 million customers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We hired Binaryfolks to develop highly customized ERP, CRM, and mobile app modules for our field support staff. 

What were your goals for this project?

A large group of licensed field inspectors manages the massive number of indoor and outdoor inspections we conduct for retail and enterprise customers. The inspection process is manually intensive and generally takes several days due to the substantial amount of information required for collection, reporting, and analysis. The goal of this project was to design and implement a field inspection app that would help our inspectors solve and automate field inspections, minimize manual errors, and reduce the delivery timeline without compromising quality or reliability. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I first heard about Binaryfolks through a colleague of mine who had worked with them to develop an online e-commerce store. He was pleasantly surprised by the performance and quality of the work, so it was his recommendation that directed me to Binaryfolks. We were so impressed with them that we never even considered other vendors. 

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Following considerable research and brainstorming sessions, then an intense development phase, Binaryfolks built a mobile solution with an elaborate backend infrastructure. The solution addressed the extensive time required to execute inspections and formulate reports. The mobile apps now allow our inspectors to input data directly; draw electronic diagrams in a bespoke specialized drawing tool; capture digital photos; take digital signatures; and more, all online. This data is then automatically transmitted to the backend infrastructure, which has all the automated built-in logic necessary to analyze and process the data and format attractive PDF reports and certificates.

They also developed a SaaS-based command and control center that allows us to monitor the in-depth health of our mobile fleet, manage the process at any level, generate proactive notifications about problems, execute commands, and manage software and application upgrades, all remotely. In addition, they built a real estate auxiliary services management portal and automated our purchase order management and invoicing systems.

What was the team composition?

We had a single point of contact throughout the project. In addition to the three frontend developers, backend developers, and solution architect, the team itself was often augmented with supplementary developers in the event of a tight schedule or if domain-specific expertise was required. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The mobile apps reduced the inspection process time from four days to two hours and have virtually eliminated manual errors.

More broadly, the fact that we've been working with Binaryfolks consistently for such a long period of time on many of our largest and most business-critical projects speaks volumes. Not only do they write top-quality code, but they also dedicate an extraordinary amount of time to understanding the project and our needs in detail before we ever begin. They then offer impressive questions, suggestions, and ideas regarding the most ideal way to approach the problem. Moreover, they never balk at a challenge, which is largely why they have become our primary service provider for technology platform development. 

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Along with their technical capabilities, their project management and communication methods are well ahead of many of the other big vendors we have worked with, which is a rare and surprising combination. They keep us informed and current on project progress at every stage with regular video updates and periodic Google Hangout or Skype sessions.

They are already available via e-mail nearly 24/7, but they proactively arrange around-the-clock developers and support staff for production issues or serious bugs that could be potential problems, working nights and weekends until the issue is resolved. They put forth the effort necessary in terms of both quality and time to make sure all deadlines are met, and their deeply vested interest in our success makes them feel more like an extended part of our engineering team than just a paid outside vendor.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Binaryfolks has been outstanding at managing multiple projects at once, providing unmatched flexibility, agility, and scalability. They are responsible for our mobile app and our property search system, as well as five different applications, all of which need to adapt and improve with our ever-evolving product portfolio and business expansion.

They are also fluent in English with the willingness to go the extra mile in order to understand exactly what the customer wants. They grasp the project requirements quickly through interactive discussions and by explaining the up- and downsides to every idea and potential structure we want to build.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Though their team is very qualified and technically sound, the project pipeline can be somewhat lengthy; our projects must be planned well in advance. Other than this, I am quite satisfied with everything Binaryfolks has done for us, and I have no immediate suggestions.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO and founder of two companies. One is a SaaS and the other is a digital marketing service.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We were looking to develop review management software that brands of all sizes could use to track and analyze their products’ and services’ online reputation. End-customers should also be able to submit reviews via email.

What were your goals for this project?

Our effective, easy-to-use platform would help our clients monitor online reviews, improve customer relations, and capture customer experiences.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I heard about BinaryFolks from an associate of mine who had a fantastic experience with them.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They’re developing our online review management platform that features ad campaign management, review monitoring, sentiment analysis, and response management. Unfortunately, those are all the details I can divulge at this moment.

What was the team composition?

They’ve assigned three developers and a project manager. I have a single point of contact. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Though we haven’t gone live yet, Binaryfolks has cracked many tough problems we weren’t aware of when the project began. We’re preparing to launch the platform, and they’ve delivered everything they agreed to. Our overall experience has been good so far.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

It’s been excellent. Initially, they held long calls to flesh out our project requirements. Then, they prepared a business requirement document. Nothing was assumed or left open to interpretation. We communicate regularly through email and video calls, and they’re flexible in making minor adjustments.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Instead of simply asking us for instructions, they step up and work with us to build requirements and milestones and deliver them on time and budget. This extends to tasks we bring to them. If they think they have a better idea, they’ll let us know, and we’ll work on it together. Their competitors don’t have their dedication.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, not really. Whenever we have an issue, they do whatever possible to fix it immediately.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the president of a leading web-based wine merchant. We have a 43,000-square-foot retail center in California that offers premium and collectible wines and professional storage services to our global customer base.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire BinaryFolks?

We wanted to automate our marketing process, sending targeted offers to our premium customers to increase conversions rates and capture more customer wallet share. We were also looking to reduce the internal resources dedicated to these efforts.

What were your goals for this project?

Before this project, we manually sent tons of email marketing messages each week. Our salespeople were responsible for selecting wines to offer, authoring the email, mining the customer list, scheduling and sending the offer, and handling the responses. It was very time consuming, so we really needed to automate the process to improve our internal operations.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We posted our chatbot project on some job exchange websites and requested that vendors submit their proposals. We received several responses and set up a meeting with each candidate. After a few conversations with BinaryFolks, we were confident that they understood our project requirements and were capable of delivering. They finished that specific application, and we were so impressed with the work that we decided to expand the engagement to include additional projects.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

First, BinaryFolks developed a chatbot to improve our outreach efforts. Our clients can use the function to create their own customized interactive chatbot that meets their requirements without having any coding background.

Then, they used data mining techniques to help us determine the ideal profile of a premium customer. We send targeted email batches to those customer groups. BinaryFolks helped us formulate a highly intricate strategy that optimizes our sales volume while making sure we don’t over-communicate with our clients. They continue to support us in these efforts.

What was the team composition?

We have a single point of contact. There are also front- and backed developers involved at all times. Whenever we’re on a tight schedule or the work requires specific expertise, they’ll bring in additional staff. On occasion, I speak with the CEO who is a phenomenal and customer-focused resource.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They wrote high-quality code that translated into a great product. We started working with the BinaryFolks team in 2016, but we still go back to them anytime we need assistance with development. Our commitment to their team speaks to the quality of their work and services. They’re an eager and enthusiastic team with great client rapport. Their flexible and collaborative approach to the partnership enhanced our business quickly and cost-effectively, and we didn’t have to invest in an in-house team.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They knew exactly what they were doing. Their team challenged us to think about our vision and our end goals for the collaboration. Using our provided framework, BinaryFolks prepared a project flow document that identified any gaps in our idea. They were active communicators, sharing their progress and asking questions regularly. At each milestone, they provided a detailed video that recapped their work.

Now in the support phase, the team remains responsive and available. They put in extra time and effort to make sure their work is correct and meets all of our needs. The BinaryFolks team is robust and technically sound. They’re always looking for ways to improve their processes. So far, their work has proved the success of their committed, adaptable, and dynamic approach to each project.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

BinaryFolks takes full responsibility for their work. They are personally invested in the success of our project. When it comes to working with SaaS-based software, their expertise is unparalleled. Their entire team is excellent.

I most appreciate their willingness to adapt to our processes rather than having us adapt to theirs. This speaks to their flexibility and professionalism. Once we successfully completed one project with them, they became our automatic choice for anything related to software development. Commitment, communication, and trust are three of their biggest strengths.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We never had problems with project management, but a process-oriented company may need to set formal tools in place to track the workflow.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CEO of Nordic Mobility AS. Our company focuses on helping businesses with enterprise mobility, MDM [mobile device management] and wireless networks. We provide cloud services, management services, consulting services, project management and app development.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire BinaryFolks?

We hired BinaryFolks to build an OS manager for specialized mobile devices used by our enterprise clients across the country.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to develop an OS manager application that enables enterprise users of specialized android devices to update their OS with a reasonable degree of checks and automation. These devices are a variant of Android OS and don’t have Google Mobile Services to update their OS like normal Android public users have.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We faced a huge challenge when most of the previous companies we went to couldn’t even make the prototype work for us. We posted a project spec on some job exchange sites and I vetted a few companies for this project. BinaryFolks conducted the requirement gathering phase so well, and enriched the process with their valuable suggestions, that after the initial few meetings, it was clear that they had the best vision for our project. Their reliability and technical knowledge stood out amongst others. BinaryFolks communicated very well and responded quickly when we had questions, which ultimately helped us make the decision to go with them.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

BinaryFolks built an application on top of EMDK [enterprise mobility development kit] that runs in the background to identify if there is an update available for the OS. Once the file is detected, the OS manager automatically checks the battery percentage and the device sends a notification to the user stating that there is an update available. Depending on user feedback, it either initiates the update or schedules the update for later. Aside from upgrades, the application also helps downgrade the OS if the user wishes to do so.

What was the team composition?

We had a dedicated project manager and then worked with front– and back–end developers, and a solution architect. Depending on specific need or domain specific knowledge, they brought in additional experts.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Previous vendors were struggling to get a prototype up and running, so I think BinaryFolks helped remove a major roadblock for our business expansion.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They provided all deliverables on time, accommodated small scope changes, and were responsive to issues over the course of the development process. Customer service is especially noteworthy. They communicate effectively and provide more than mere development; they offer proactive suggestions for improvement.

There were never any communication issues. The team sent out video updates after completion of every milestone, and they used screen sharing and emails to collaborate effectively.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

EMDK was a relatively new platform for BinaryFolks. Not only did they pick it up very quickly, but they also achieved good command over the platform and were able to build advanced functionality on top of it. They are highly competent individuals who are experts in their field and can share their knowledge. They’re an extension of my team. They go out of their way to help improve the application and create the best solutions for my business.

BinaryFolks is very flexible and easy to work with. If I had an idea in mind, they would carefully think through the upsides and downsides, from my business point of view, and suggest any improvements in the flow. They met our needs, appreciated our vision, and brought our goals to life. They've taken our inputs and incorporated them in a way which made sense, but also pushed back when it was necessary. Also, they are constantly upgrading their technical skills. This empowers them to stand out from their competition.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

I didn’t feel like we were lagging at any point. BinaryFolks exceeded our expectations.
