Feedback summary: 

They hit all deadlines and project targets and received positive customer feedback for their ability to integrate existing code. Burning Buttons also scaled developers flexibly as needed. They leverage their deep understanding of requirements to provide useful suggestions for change.

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 co-founder and CEO of Altling. a social platform created for gamers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Burning Buttons?

We were looking for help with web development for our gaming social platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We brought them on to develop a social media web platform for us. We came to them with a design blueprint of what we needed, and they developed the frontend and backend. The code was designed partly by many companies, which was the whole reason we had to really start from scratch.

Our requirements were pretty complex, but they were very honest with what they could do and what they thought might be different. They gave us their opinion and suggestions. They also helped us with database work on the backend. We used Drupal and we are planning to use Laravel for the next phase.

What is the team composition?

We worked with a minimum of two people and a maximum of six people. We had a project manager who was our main point of contact. If needed, we could speak directly with the senior or junior coders as well.

How did you come to work with Burning Buttons?

We had started the website ourselves, working with a freelancer and another company, but it didn’t work out. Initially, we were looking for a company on a freelancing website. They had quite a decent number of projects done on freelance.com. We started with a small part of our website, and we noticed that they do things differently and continued the engagement with them.

How much have you invested in them?

We spent close to £20,000 Pounds (Approximately $24,400 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together on this project from March 2017–January 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They completed the project prior to the set timescale and we met our target. Compared to the previous developers we worked with, they were good at estimating and respected the timeline we had.

They are quite flexible when it comes to changes along the way. They reallocated some developers to another job, and whenever we needed more developers, they were able to scale up. There wasn’t a commitment in that sense on our side, so we had that flexibility when it came to how many developers we needed.

The quality was great. There were some problems, but that went back to having code from someone else and probably was not their fault.

How did Burning Buttons perform from a project management standpoint?

They actually understand a lot of what we do, which has been very positive. I usually see developers try to understand the project, try to read the blueprints and do whatever it says; however, in our project Burning Buttons gave us feedback based on what we wrote. They made suggestions and it was more like a dynamic response from them.

We were in constant contact with their team through Slack and different software. There was a decent level of communication going on, which we really enjoyed.

They were on time with scheduling, which was great. They were up to date on recent technologies. Even though we wanted to use Drupal, they recommended other technologies.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are quite friendly within a professional relationship. We enjoyed our time together.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The only problem was the coding that was designed by someone else, so I can’t really say much about that.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They are very flexible. The quality to price ratio is pretty great and is way better than what we can get in the UK where it is more expensive, and the quality isn’t even close.

Burning Buttons was able to quickly grasp the project details and pivot to dynamic requirements. They were responsive, timely, and detail-oriented throughout. Their strong performance has set them up for imminent work on more complicated projects.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a startup that offers web application services to online companies based in Australia. I am the co-founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Burning Buttons?

To develop a web application - widget and admin website. We had a crude generic prototype, but BB came in and developed the key features.

What were your goals for this project?

We had specific features/functions that were needed to be added to our service. Our previous vendors were not able to deliver. We needed someone to fully understand our existing codes, and build upon it. Because we already had a framework, BB had to study our existing one and implement our requirements within the framework.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We used a freelancer website. We looked at their previous track record, their pricing, and conducted interview. We were interviewing 3 more candidate teams, but eventually went with BB.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

The project was a short intense one where they had to quickly learn our existing codes, and develop a widget app with an admin website in PHP. We explained exactly what features were needed to be added, and gave our pre-existing codes.

They first reviewed the code, gave productive feedback which also played a role when deciding to work with BB. After two rounds of initial meeting, we had a catch up meeting. We mostly communicated via Skype/slack.

What was the team composition?

We have one business dev person, one who looks after the tech side with frontend dev background, and one does all ad hoc work. BB had a project manager, one tech lead, and one developer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We are at the early stage of our project, and currently talking with potential customers and stakeholders. It wasn't development first then going out to customers. We had discussions with customers first, and then needed a prototype within a short period of time.

BB took over the project and quickly added the key function that was our selling point. This was a unique function that I don't believe they would have developed in the past. However, they were quick to understand the concept and developed it according to our requirement framework.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We worked through Skype and Slack. Always there to respond to us.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

  • Great communication - We've had issues with communications in the past with other vendors, e.g. they did not understand what we wanted, and came out with something that we did not initially planned. Always responsive.
  • Lead time - After two meetings, BB came back with the expected turnaround time, which they kept. Never happened before with other teams.
  • Attention to detail - They went above and beyond to pinpoint details and always had lots of questions. Lots of questions is always good from our experience.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I honestly did not see any area for improvement at this time. We will continue to work with BB, and will tackle much more complicated projects, which I firmly believe will also have awesome outcomes.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a web development company that, at times, partners with companies like Burning Buttons to complete specialized tasks where we need additional skilled developers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Burning Buttons?

We have worked with Burning Buttons for several years, now, and have used them for a number of various projects, including Drupal Commerce, custom PHP/Zend, Node.js and ARM (Advanced RISC Machines) support. We have additionally used them for design and UI.

What were your goals for this project?

The goals on many of these projects were either to bring in a lead developer or add additional resources to a project as needed. They have filled both of these roles without much effort.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We have used quite a number of outsourced development partners over the years and settled on Burning Buttons due to their depth of ability, availability, and communication.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We have had ongoing long-term relationships with lead development resources on several projects. Lead development supported and or carried through on the entire dev life cycle, from brainstorming on critical functions and needs as they came up to scheduled support and maintenance of security and module updates. The team would be assigned tasks via project management tools where issues would be documented, updated, version controlled before being pushed to staging servers for QA.

What was the team composition?

The teams consisted mostly of their lead or support developers who communicated directly with our management team. They utilized our in-house project management software. Burning Buttons also had a great project management team in place to communicate overall productivity and additional team needs.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Without Burning Buttons and their team, our services would be greatly diminished. They bring great depth to any team.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Their project managers are great at communication and are there when needed. When they aren’t, they don't get in the way. We prefer to discuss project details directly with the developers, and they have allowed and even promoted that level of access.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Burning Buttons is always excited to stay ahead of the game and love to talk about new tech, which makes them very helpful with technology solutions. The owners of the company are probably bigger geeks on technology than their development staff. They have been involved in a handful of high-level projects with us, as well.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No person or company has no room for improvement, so hard to say they don't. But it’s also hard to consider what that might be. Being a remote collaboration partner, communication is always the biggest area needed for us, so there’s always room to improve there.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Since 2000, we has been helping people across Dominican Republic to buy or resell their cars. We are small family owned company with 4 people working in-house. I'm the owner of this company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Burning Buttons?

In earlier days it took considerable time to connect the buyer with the seller in a used car operation. Perhaps the best option was to publish a notice in a newspaper, stating that you wanted to sell the car ... Then, it was sitting down and waiting for whoever was interested in used cars, who wanted to buy the car would call you. So it was more difficult, certainly. So we decided to build a website to simplify the process.                   

What were your goals for this project?

The solution had to be simple, user-friendly and scalable. Burning Buttons offered us to use Drupal as the most suitable solution with easy support after the development.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were recommended to us by our partners. Burning Buttons handled several custom software development projects for them and we were also happy with their approach and turnaround time.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They designed, developed and launched the project within the agreed timeframe.

What was the team composition?

From BurningButton's side were involved 3 people: project manager, backend developer and frontend developer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

With online website the deals are closing much faster. We have not updated the website for couple of years so it looks a bit outdated. We plan to come to Burning Buttons by the end of the year to rebuild our interface and make some improvements.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

I was involved in the project mostly as an end user and the person who formulated the overall requirements to the solution. As a non-tech person, I know that it is often difficult to communicate with development teams as they usually speak technology language and don’t consider the business side of software development. I have to highlight that I’ve never faced such problems while collaborating with Burning Buttons. They had a project manager in the team who connected end users and developers and made our cooperation painless. Mostly we communicated via Skype, Trello for tasktracking.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their specialists are easy to communicate with, they are very responsive and always ready to help. We were delighted to find such a reliable vendor.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None I can think of at the moment.
