The Review
Feedback summary: 

The tool improves internal analyses and reporting, decreases data-processing  time, and simplifies administration processes in general. bvblogic managed the project well despite some hiccups driven by miscommunication.

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 head of digital for a business and finance consulting agency. We provide consulting services for financial institutions with our main focus being former USSR countries, but we’re expanding to the Middle East, northern Africa, and Saharan Africa. We issue small and medium-sized loans to entrepreneurs and businesses.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with bvblogic?

Our internal IT and design team is small, so when several projects arose that differed from past projects, we decided to outsource most of that work. The most important of these projects was a financial portal.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had large spreadsheets for each region in which we operated and we wanted one profile to consolidate this data and make it more easily accessible. After bvblogic compared the data, systems, frames, etc., they created the platform. The final product is a profile that consolidates the data and gives options for displaying the data and exporting it in different formats. The first version is complete, but we’re still making improvements. If things continue to go well, we won’t need to take on this project internally. Ideally, we’d like to make the platform accessible to our clients and add value for our clients by giving them a chance to be part of the project.

How did you come to work with bvblogic?

I found them on Upwork. We looked at their freelancer profile. I contacted one specific developer from bvblogic. They weren’t advertised as a company; we found this out later on, but it didn’t make any difference. The main distinguishing factor was cost, but I liked their past work and their reviews and comments were good.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in August 2016 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

So far, the tool is used mainly for internal purposes—specifically by our auditors in analyzing trends and performing due diligence. This helps us to create more robust reports and save time on data processing. Plus, it provides better transparency about what we are doing. We have gone from using Excel sheets to having a tool for a due diligence process.

How did bvblogic perform from a project management standpoint?

Overall, the interaction on this complex project has been smooth and the project has been managed well on their end.

On my end, I prioritize tasks using a shared Excel tracking sheet. After we discuss a task via Skype and I get a time estimate back from them, I check with my management about proceeding. Once I give bvblogic the go-ahead, they give me a set end date, new functions appear on a demo server, and they eventually roll the finalized upgrade out to the live server.

We needed a collaborative initiative to build something user-friendly, clear, and easy. There was a lot of interaction in giving bvblogic the right requirements. One big value for me is the communication was straight to the point; that made the relationship stronger.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There were a few delays—due, in large part, to small English misunderstandings or items I didn’t explain fully. However, for a small project, they were nearly perfect.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are building a financial technology startup called 24exchange v2.0. The goal is to build an easy, fast, safe way to exchange money online. Our first experiment with fiat and digital currency exchange, which launched in 2014, was a very popular platform for purchasing and selling Bitcoin.

What is your position? 

I am the founder and CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire bvblogic?

We needed top-notch professionals to develop the most important part of our system. The 247exchange platform is built on the combination of a powerful RESTful API and a variety of other client applications. Figuratively speaking, the back-end server is the core of the application since the CORE API handles almost all its business logic. The 247exchange platform was built using API-first design and microservice architecture.

What were your goals for this project?

We primarily needed to find a dedicated team that could build the CORE API. In addition, we wanted advice about technical details, help with selecting the most appropriate tech stack, and assistance in building a bulletproof DB server and the rest of the information architecture.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I had a pleasant experience working with bvblogic while we were building the first iteration of our platform. They were professional, flexible, and affordable. They also took a personalized approach to any issues that arose, on both the development and project management sides. When it was time for me to choose the CORE development team, I knew that they would give me honest, solid advice.

Describe the project in detail.

bvblogic advised me on the system design, helped me choose a tech stack, and helped to construct the DBS architecture. The MVP-ready development environment version of the platform was launched a month ago. Now, we’re working to enhance its functionality and optimize API methods. We built a stable MVP a few weeks ago, and are now working to enhance its functionality, refine the UI, and build the front-end application. We plan to launch the finished product early in 2018.

What was the team composition?

Three developers from bvblogic are working on the project full-time. They also provide a project manager to coordinate the work. All levels of the agency, from the developers to the CTO, are always available to offer input and advice. We use an agile development approach, although we interpret some parts rather freely.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What outcomes or results can you share that demonstrate progress and/or success?

The demo version of the platform, powered by the CORE API that bvblogic developed, is currently live and capable of processing payments. Our clientele greatly appreciates the platform, and I have received interesting funding offers from venture capital firms and angel investors. I definitely consider the platform a success.

How effective was the project management?

Their project management was very efficient. We use Jira and Slack, wikis, and Google Docs for various purposes The bvblogic team adapts to everything as quickly as my other teams, which allows us to work in synergy. They meet every important deadline and take on extra work hours. I can’t even remember the last time that I asked someone to work extra hours; the team can see when it’s necessary. bvblogic has truly become part of our team!

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The bvblogic team instantly adapts to every workflow enhancement that we make. For a startup, this is priceless. I also respect how devoted everyone at bvlogic is and how much they care about their work. Everybody works weekend and nights when necessary. That’s the way my firm functions, so I’m glad that I found a development team with the same attitude.

What tips or recommendations do you have?

To bvblogic, I would only request that they continue doing what they do. I have nothing more to say except "keep it up!”

Our second project with bvblogic was for the UK embassy. We created a web page and registration system designed for an upcoming seminar.

Another project was for a large taxi company in Estonia. They helped us develop a billing system which automatically outputs data for order numbers and payment information, as well as issuing locations for the cars in the fleet. The system allows the company to review the number of orders over a period of time, earnings, costs, and so on.

The team at bvblogic has used different PHP frameworks and WordPress templates for our projects. I’ve liked their work style and reaction time so far. They will always get in touch with me quickly if I have a problem, even during their holidays, which differ from the ones in Estonia.

How did you come to work with bvblogic?

I got in touch with their principal and discussed a possible collaboration. He showed me a portfolio, and we started working together. We also use other partners and have our own developers as well, but we use bvblogic on our bigger projects.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with bvblogic around a year ago. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

Our clients have been very satisfied with bvblogic’s work. Our Finnish client has requested additional pages for their e-shop, and they can take and deliver orders more easily in general. They communicate directly with bvblogic, not only with our team. We trust bvblogic to work with our clients and have no reservations in this area.

The taxi company is able to see statistical information more easily and can attract new clients more effectively using that information for taxi locations and other operational data. They are a large Estonian company and have recommended us to other companies as well, so the collaboration has been successful for us.

How did bvblogic perform from a project management standpoint?

They have very fast reaction times. If I send them a question or give some feedback, their response is typically good.

What did you find most impressive about bvblogic?

They have a large team, and they can provide a multitude of services beyond web programming like mobile-app development. Being able to order different services from the same place is good for me since I don’t have to stay in touch with a number of companies.

Are there any areas bvblogic could improve?

I’ve worked with other external companies that used tracking systems that took screenshots of programmers’ desktops, allowing me to see what they were doing and how much time was being spent. It’s possible that bvblogic has a system like this, but we haven’t used it.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

bvblogic’s streamlining of the booking system nearly eliminated customer service calls, reducing staffing needs. Their intuitive project management system allowed for an easy flow of information. bvblogic was an honest and transparent development partner.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We offer custom menswear with online and offline showrooms in Singapore and the UK. People sign up online, come into the showroom, and are measured. We then have their measurement profiles so they can go and reorder online when necessary. I’m one of the founders.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with bvblogic?

We had a Ruby on Rails and WordPress developer before who did everything. We then parted ways with that person, so we needed someone else. We got in touch with a UK development house that ended up not doing a very good job, so we needed somebody else that do maintenance and upgrades of legacy systems, as well as handle building a suite of new systems that we had planned.  

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Initially, we had a booking tool that was relatively basic. We overhauled the booking tool, making it a lot more flexible and useful to our needs. We did a lot of upgrades to the WordPress website. In the end, we started with the development of an entire order management system that administers measurements and tracks orders along the process, and that is where we’re at right now. We just deployed that, working on upgrades to certain areas. It’s an open hourly agreement that we have with them now. We have one WordPress developer and a Ruby developer on standby doing work on a daily basis for us almost at full capacity. And then as needed, we take in frontend capabilities as well.

How did you come to work with bvblogic?

They were referred to us through a middleman, but we had so many before that we failed with. They had the Ruby capabilities, they were located in Eastern Europe, which was important to us because of time zone and price, and they seemed to know what they’re doing. So we started working with them. The referral was helpful in that there was no need for a test; we just threw them in the water, and they started on it. We saw what came out, and it was good.

How much have you invested with bvblogic?

It’s been $30,000-$35,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them around June 2016. The project is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

It’s hard to say, but the impact of these systems is key for us. The booking part is super crucial. Before that, there was a customer service person who spent half her day answering customer calls to schedule and reschedule. The capabilities that we had were so limited. But those customer service calls have been reduced to a very low number now. In terms of order management, we’re still migrating into that system, but the impact of that will also be quite significant. Once everything is rolled out, I think it’ll easily save us one full-time person.

How did bvblogic perform from a project management standpoint?

We set up milestones and a project plan. It’s a relatively agile way we’re applying with them: we throw out specs, they review it, they come back with questions, and they start working on it. We have daily calls to align ourselves and test what’s out there. It’s not a massive project plan. We are using tracking tools as simply as possible. They have access to Basecamp and all these tools, but we’re resorting to Google Docs at the moment. It just happened like that, but it works very well for us.

What did you find most impressive about bvblogic?

They’re quite keen on doing a good job. When you work with third parties, oftentimes they overestimate their time and everything takes so much longer. I don’t feel like I’m getting ripped off at all by them. It seems like they’re charging us for a very fair amount of hours. If we think something is excessive, they’re willing to talk about it with us with them going back to their developers and asking why it took this much time. We agree on a new process in case something like that would happen again. It’s very fair from both sides. From that, we’ll have enough trust that we’re not going to challenge everything and start endless discussions. It’s a very friendly way of working together.

Are there any areas bvblogic could improve?

The problem with any outsource development house is that the talent leads, the superstars, aren’t going to work in an agency forever. We were lucky enough to have one of these superstars on the team, but unfortunately, they get sold out by companies with deeper pockets. Finding and attracting replacement superstars is tricky, but that’s not unique to bvblogic; that problem is an industry-wide issue.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

bvblogic offered the expertise of a large firm and personal attention of a small firm. Despite some minor language issues, bvblogic offered worked passionately to deliver the best possible result.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

My company is a consultancy firm to startup companies. I’m the senior consultant.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with bvblogic?

We were trying to develop a backend business solution for a client that tied into our WordPress site. The project was a geotargeted e-commerce platform that needed additional data intelligence and a reorganization of the database combined with a frontend interface that made it easier for our client’s clients to interact with the solution and buy geotargeting ad services and e-commerce services.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The initial phase was a 2-fold analysis on our database and current structure and also on the interface that was needed. We’re not quite finished with the database part of the project; we hope to be done by May. bvblogic is helping us work backwards to figure out what the best user experience is. They have provided an amazing interface for us. The WordPress side uses a lot of PHP, which they’ll match to our platform. The team bvblogic provided us was 5 resources that included 2 developers, 1 frontend developer, 1 account manager, and the project manager.

How did you come to work with bvblogic?

I met one of their managers through an outsourcing site. We talked on Skype and he was fantastic. He spoke good English and I felt very comfortable with his demeanor and felt I could trust him. I’ve since been introduced to other people at bvblogic and every person feels the same way. They’ve got great energy and they’re very trustworthy. They work very hard to get things right and they’re very communicative. I’ve had other outsourced relationships where the communication hasn’t been good.

How much have you invested with bvblogic?

We have spent between $2,000 and $3,000 so far with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in November 2016, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

My client is so pleased that they plan to work with bvblogic themselves on another project. If the process is an indicator of what the final results are going to be, we’re very excited. I think it’s important to communicate often and that’s what I advised my client to do. When crossing different languages, it’s good to be clear what you’re expecting. They’ve always been able to understand what we’re looking for. I feel like we’re in good hands. They seem like a big firm but we’re getting personalized treatment.

How did bvblogic perform from a project management standpoint?

I communicate mainly with the account manager through email, Skype, and shared documents. They communicate with our client using Slack. I have communication periodically with the other members of the team, who are also very organized. bvblogic will push the client to make sure they’re not missing deadlines.

What did you find most impressive about bvblogic?

They have the passion and the energy to execute well. They also have depth of expertise, which is really nice. I’ve worked with other firms that are 1 or 2 people but for this particular client that runs e-commerce platforms, there are so many different needs which bvblogic is able to handle. Their team acts like a small, nimble team but their company has a lot of resources to offer. It’s nice to be able to get things done with one agency.

Are there any areas bvblogic could improve?

Clients should be clear about any expectations they have about their project. bvblogic continues to get better in terms of American dialogue. Sometimes it would be helpful if they had a super strong English speaker at the account management level.
