Feedback summary: 

The platform met the partner's expectations and alleviated a lot of internal work. The Brainence team maintained regular communication and held weekly progress meetings. Honesty and transparency are major hallmarks of their high-quality work. They also excel in flexibility and expertise.

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 former development lead of Utopix.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Brainence?

We were developing a platform for photographers to find work and match with clients. Our team brought on Brainence for frontend development efforts. The goal was the make the platform functional and beautiful.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We ran into a big problem with a choice we made early on in the development process. The platform was coded in Gatsby, a JavaScript frontend framework. The developer who helped our team make the decision to go with Gatsby ended up leaving the company. We found ourselves in a situation where we couldn’t continue building the frontend because we didn’t have any developers who could.

Before we brought on Brainence for help, the first question we asked was if they knew Gatsby well. It’s a younger framework, so it wouldn’t be unusual if they didn’t. They were very honest and told us they didn’t know it very well, but they’d learn. And that was the truth, the handled and finished all the platform’s frontend development.

What is the team composition?

I worked with two people over the course of the project. We had one developer for about 3–4 weeks. However, we asked to change him because he wasn’t meeting our expectations. Brainence acted quickly and was receptive to our request. Our developer changed to Daria (Frontend Web Developer), and we worked with her until the end. I also had occasional contact with Artem (Head of Digital Transformation).

How did you come to work with Brainence?

I did a Google search and created a shortlist of 10–12 companies I then contacted. We knew it’d be difficult to find a company who knew Gatsby very well. Brainence was the only company that was honest. They said they didn’t know it very well, but that they’d learn. We appreciated the honesty, so we chose them.

How much have you invested with them?

We invested $3,000 a month for six months.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from December 2019–June 2020. I’ve since left the company so I don’t know if there’s a new engagement or ongoing work with Brainence.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Brainence allowed us to focus on the assistance force. We left the website work to their team and that helped us out a lot. It allowed our in-house developers to focus on other efforts.

How did Brainence perform from a project management standpoint?

They did very well with project management. We had a meeting every week with Daria where I’d give her a task for the upcoming week. Artem would contact us regularly to see if everything was going well or if we needed anything. I was very happy with their communication.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their flexibility and expertise were definitely the most impressive. Brainence can handle many technologies and frameworks. And if that’s not the case, they’ll learn it. I was very happy and appreciated this about them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I can’t think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I’d recommend calling and telling them what technologies you use right now and what you want to use in the future. Be honest about your actual stack and in asking if they can handle it, and you’ll get an honest answer.

Feedback summary: 

The application developed and maintained by the Brainence team has enabled the client’s company to grow exponentially, increasing their customer base by nearly 100% in the first year. Their team is very receptive to and forthcoming with constructive criticism and maintains constant 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 am the CEO of a small software development company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Brainence?

We needed to develop an extension of our software platform for a new product line and were not able to do that with our current developers because they were working on a parallel project. The difficulty was in being able to scale up significantly within a very short time.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The application handles data collection, and we wanted to have a desktop application to complement it. We started from scratch with them in order to avoid overburdening our current developers who were already working on the web platform. From the beginning, we knew that we wanted to transition from .net to .core and make use of AWS and various other implementation options.

Basically, what they did is write the specifications together with us and then translate that into the technical backend solution. We also worked closely together on the frontend solution UI, and we cooperated significantly around how to best integrate those.

Their work allowed us to provide different representations of the data in a variety of graphic visuals like stack bars, slide bars, and gauges. All of that had to be organization-specific because we serve a lot of different organizations with different authorization levels, and it also needed to fit into our existing data collection structure, which they were able to develop for us.

What is the team composition?

We started with one member of their team but have since increased that to two and are talking about potentially going to three in total.

How did you come to work with Brainence?

We found them online through a software development outsourcing platform, and then we were able to narrow it down to a specific location because I really enjoy the city of Lviv.

They were the first team on the list for the programming languages that we needed, and they were very trustworthy in all of our initial interactions, so we decided to stick with them.

How much have you invested with them?

Our current spend per month is about €3,000, and we’ve spent a little under $50,000 so far in total.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started in October 2018 and we are continuing to develop further versions of the application.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Essentially, they have allowed us to achieve the vision that we were going for as a company, and business-wise, they have enabled nearly 100% growth each year. The application they developed has been a game-changer for us because it makes exponential growth in terms of customers much easier to achieve. Without them, we would not be the company we are today.

How did Brainence perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management has exceeded all of our expectations. It is very easy to work with them and they are always highly responsive over Slack, even on weekends. We never impose anything on them, so our decisions are always a conversation involving both parties, which helps to build a sense of mutual respect and collaboration.

We also meet up in person at least twice a year to really help us align all of our plans and expectations. We discuss all of the current and upcoming features, and then we do some fun stuff together too. The relationship is really fantastic.

What did you find most impressive about them?

In terms of what they really excel in, I think their biggest strength is proactiveness. They always think ahead, and they provide very useful constructive criticism for our solutions. However, they are also very open to receiving feedback, which helps to foster a very open and mature working relationship.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Honestly, I don’t even have one point on which I think they need to improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It certainly helps to have a background in software development, so if it’s possible to bring someone into the conversation from your side who knows the technical details, that is going to help support the back and forth with them significantly.

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-founder of a web-based directory for housing in Canada.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Brainence?

We’ve been working on launching our product for about three years. Up until now, we struggled to find a team that could understand our vision and deliver within a reasonable timeline and budget. We’d already created some basic wireframes and were looking for a firm that could build out an MVP to pilot with a small group of users.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had conducted some initial UX research and built very simple wireframes. Their team completely redesigned what we had created, establishing a robust UX/UI for the site. They developed the front- and backend using the .NET framework, AngulurJS and React.

What is the team composition?

They assigned a team of six to our project.

How did you come to work with Brainence?

We did most of our research on Clutch, and, after looking through reviews and price data, we reached out to five or six different companies. From the first phone call, Brainence seemed to be a perfect fit. Their patience and flexibility set them apart from the other potential vendors.

Each firm that we considered put forth an example codebase, and we hired an external consultant to evaluate them. Our consultant informed us that Brainence offered the highest quality code, and would most likely give us the best value. After hearing this and seeing some of their work samples, we felt confident in partnering with them. We were also pleased with their pricing and their willingness to have an ongoing post-launch relationship.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested approximately $12,000 in their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project began in November 2018 and was completed in March 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We received a final product that is much more sophisticated than what we initially expected. We’re very satisfied with our platform and look forward to launching it.

How did Brainence perform from a project management standpoint?

They were excellent. At the beginning of the project, they gave us a detailed monthly breakdown that outlined different milestones for development. Their team delivered everything on time and kept us updated regarding the features they were building. They released each new component on a demo server, and made sure to implement all of our comments and feedback. In terms of communication, we messaged them frequently on Slack, and used Skype occasionally for phone calls.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Every time one of their developers or designers had a concern, they reached out, which often led to a fruitful, honest discussion. They were also accommodating and responsive to our needs, even researching different technologies on our behalf. They acted as an extension of our team, which made for a fantastic partnership.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t think so. I’m so delighted with where we are as a result of their work. I couldn’t dream of a better situation.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Trust their recommendations. They are experts in the development space, and will help you maximize value wherever they can.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The end client has appreciated the app's intelligent, useful features. Although their early cost estimates needed clarification, Brainence accurately outlines their capabilities and delivers outstanding results. Their commitment to excellence is clear. 

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 director of Davis Software, a digital transformation agency. We offer consultancy services and outsource execution of our strategies to offshore teams.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Brainence?

My client who wanted to build a disruptive, innovative app for the legal space.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I worked with the client to develop the product specifications. After taking the specifications to Brainence, they worked through them and consulted with me about some of the technical aspects of the scope.

They ultimately provided an estimate and I negotiated with the client to build the product. The design was done in-house with some contributions from Brainence. Over the course of six months, they worked to deliver on that scope.

We agreed on a hybrid JavaScript PhoneGap Cordova framework that was built for Android and iOS. They also integrated it with a WordPress website. It leveraged a Torque framework at the time, but since has migrated onto a KiWi backend. Our team collaborated with the client for testing.

What is the team composition?

We had two developers from their team working at peak efficiency.

How did you come to work with Brainence?

I found them on Upwork. I was considering several other firms at the time. I did a trial phase for one or two days, and decided based on the results whether I wanted to proceed. Brainence was excellent.

How much have you invested in them?

We have spent around $40,000 AUD ($30,942 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

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

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The feedback has been very positive, and the client has enjoyed the technical details that went into the app. They’ve been impressed by Brainence’s ability to tap into so many mobile features.

How did Brainence perform from a project management standpoint?

We do all the project management in-house, so I haven’t relied on them too much for that. Since we assign them detail-specific tasks, we don’t require a project manager. They only provide technical expertise.

We use Skype to communicate. The time zone has been a challenge, since they work during our nighttime. Other than that it has been fine. They’ve been good communicators.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They very clearly explain what they can and cannot do. We are never unsure if they’ve understood the requirements.

They’ve gone above and beyond to meet our goals. That is one of the reasons why we've been so keen to stick with them and make the relationship work both ways.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Initially, we had to do a lot of work on their estimates. They used to give us very broad estimates for even the smallest tasks, but you need to keep your estimates as clear and sharp as possible when you’re dealing with large projects and specific budgets. We have worked with them quite a bit to improve that, and it has gotten a lot better.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I would use them earlier in the process as a technical consultant.

Feedback summary: 

Brainence's efforts were met with positive acclaim. 

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

CEO of an e-commerce company based in the UK.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Brainence?

We hired Brainence for developing custom web app designed for our ecommerce business needs, along with a few macros for reporting purposes.

What were your goals for this project?

To help speed up our daily processes.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Recommendation from Linnworks and several conversations with Andrew at Brainence we decided to start our project.

Describe the project in detail.

Once we decided to use Brainence we had a series of meetings via screenshare to outline our needs. Andrew provided a timeline of events that would take place for version one of our web app.

What was the team composition?

Initially, we were assigned a project manager to support us and serve as the main point of contact throughout the project. I only spoke with our project manager, but I was made aware that there were 2 developers and a QA resource working behind the scenes.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Version one of our app was ready before the planned date. We were using it as an integral part of our business within a few weeks and took no time for us to train the team up to use it.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The project manager that we were assigned was easy to communicate with and provided us with frequent updates. We connected over the phone and whatsapp every day and still do. I have been very impressed with Brainece, and we continue to work with them on multiple projects.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was blown away by the knowledge that Brainence has about web app development, UX and optimisation. We had a far better experience than first imagined.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We are 100% happy with Brainence.
