The firm is a largest overnight running relay series with 30+ relays in different geographic locations in the United States, Australia and several other countries in Europe.


The key business challenges were:

• The firm was administrating their races through a number of internal systems, including a team registry, a finance system and a number of spreadsheets.

• Each race had a different way of

administrating teams and resources

• Processing bookings manually www.bytestechnolab.com

• To reach maximum customers to sell products 


The key reasons to build an online system were:

• Streamline administrative processes

• Centralise data and Relay series information

• Increase and improve marketing initiatives

• The firm needed to make it as easy as possible for teams to make bookings and purchase 


Experts at Bytes Technolab had put their head together and analysed the business requirement and came up with a multi-site platform for different countries where team and volunteers can register for specific race, pay online, Real time chat with team members etc. On the other hand, a multi functionality Admin Panel allowed admin and staff members to create registration form dynamically, create events, manage the teams/volunteers, create promocodes, download the reports, view the real time registration data etc. A customer friendly store was developed considering the targeted user base on separate platform where customers easily browse the products and make purchase. Going online made the firm achieve the J-curve in terms of revenue and popularity. 


Deliverables:

✓ UI / UX / CX

✓ Marketing and Booking platform

Celebration Giftware - Magento 2 (Ecommerce)

The brand is a second generation family business established two decades ago, supplying customized gifts to the customers in United States, Australia and New Zealand. 


The brand was concerned about previous generation Magento 1x e-shop as the bounce rate was higher and wanted to grow their online business in any manner. They chose Bytes Technolab to find possible solution and optimize the store to improve the

customer engagement and sales.


Our Approach


1. Migration from M1 to M2:


Amalgamation of efforts channelized by Bytes Technolab to attain the key business objectives includes analyzing the complete requirement, brainstorming on future expansion, go back plans and complete road map of the migration process.


2. UI/UX migration from M1 to M2:


Based on the UI/UX preferences of client, we installed a premium ready-to-use Magento 2 theme. Business requirement is to keep UI/UX from M1 to M2 with flowless transition. The challenging part was to do major customization on store hierarchy since the existing platform has large number of categories.


3. Migration from M1 to M2 with eBay integration With the business expectation to keep all their existing features and the challenging part was transferring existing eBay integration seamless to new M2 store. Migrating from Magento 1 to Magento 2 is very challenging when business already have high impact on eBay sales.


4. Website Optimization:


Bytes Team helped the store to improve search engine visibility for many search engines by taking care of on page SEO practice and configuring suitable SEO tools.

Feedback summary: 

Although marketing efforts haven’t begun, the app completely met expectations and has received glowing feedback from those who have seen it. Bytes Technolab showed a willingness to make changes and aimed to be a highly transparent, communicative 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.

I’m a co-founder of an app that focuses on nightlife. It gives people options on where to go based on their selected criteria.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bytes Technolab?

We hired Bytes Technolab to develop our app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We gave their team our designs and functionalities that we wanted included within the app. Their team developed all of the key features, including transitions between pages and the desired color schemes. It’s an iOS app. 

What is the team composition?

I had one main point of contact, and he had about 2–4 people supporting him. 

How did you come to work with Bytes Technolab?

I have a mutual connection with a partner of my point of contact, so we connected that way. We met up and got along well, so we figured they would be the best fit for the project. 

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $20,000 on the project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from February 2016–November 2018. Any delays in the timeline came from our end. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We haven’t done any digital marketing for the app yet, but their work was great. The few people who we’ve shown the app to love it. People are offering great feedback on its functionality, remarking on how much they need the app in their life. The design is very smooth and appeals to people. 

How did Bytes Technolab perform from a project management standpoint?

We spoke on the phone as frequently as they can. Whenever work was finished, they would communicate any changes that needed to be made and hit our deadlines. They sent us links to show any updates with the app.

Everything went really well and they were on top of it. They were transparent about timelines, especially if we were going to have to wait for any changes to be made.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They offer a reasonable price, which is great. It was also nice that we had no cultural barriers between our teams. Bytes Technolab’s communication skills were consistent and set them apart from other people I’ve worked with. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

It would have been helpful if we fully understood how many people they had on their team and who could work on our project. That way, we’d have a better estimate of how long certain things would take. However, this wasn’t an issue and they did well throughout the project. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be organized and understand all the details before going into any development. You should know every page, color, and content item before starting the project to avoid overspending.

Feedback summary: 

A reliable team, the vendor understands technical requirements and executes them seamlessly. Over time, the vendor has developed an understanding of business goals, and they are in sync with stakeholders. They have an organized method of tracking tasks and provide accessible 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’m a co-founder and the CTO of an initiative to build a SaaS product for student management. It’s aimed at Registered Training Organizations (RTOs), as they’re called in Australia.

These are namely educational institutes that provide vocational training, as well as other sorts of training—accounting, business, diplomatic, and so forth. The goal of the product is to allow RTOs to manage their admissions, financials, student courses, class schedules, and so forth.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bytes Technolab?

They’ve been purely an outsourced development shop for us. They’re basically helping translate my ideas into reality for the SaaS product.

I have a partner in Australia who owns an RTO, and there were multiple challenges using existing student management software from different vendors. 

I, from the technology side, and him, from the business side, worked together to identify all those gaps and issues, and build our own product, suitable for other RTOs as well.  

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I work with Bytes Technolab to develop my business requirements into a solution.

The product has integrations with online portals such as Moodle and Canvas, as well as payment and vocational training integrations. 

For example, during a cooking course, the student will need to work in the actual industry for a number of weeks. That process needs to be tracked (e.g. whether or not it was completed successfully and for how many days a week). 

We’re mainly using a PHP stack, with a MySQL database and Laravel as a framework.

What is the team composition?

The main point of contact is Mitul (Business Development Manager, Bytes Technolab). At most, he used a team of five developers to work on our requirements. I believe there are 4–5 developers working for me full time, and the cost is per-developer.

How did you come to work with Bytes Technolab?

I’d worked with many, many companies before finding Bytes Technolab. I’d struggled a lot and had to cancel many projects. 

I have a very good friend (who’s also a serial entrepreneur) who suggested Bytes Technolab to me. His wording was something like “Give them something and they’ll deliver.” They haven’t failed on that.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost so far has been between  $70,000 to $80,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

I've been working with them for almost three years now, since September or November of 2017. We started out with a small module.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

There’s no doubt they’re very good on the technical side. If I tell them what to do, they’ll deliver.

However, they have a tendency to interpret our vision literally. They are very good at taking requirements literally and implementing them, but they don’t have an advisory role. 

Since they’ve been in the industry longer, I would’ve expected Bytes Technolab to come forth and tell us when something’s not a good option. 

Maybe it’s not their place to advise us, but we’ve had to make slight changes to our architecture decisions along the way. 

How did Bytes Technolab perform from a project management standpoint?

I was considering pulling the project 3–6 months after starting because there was a communication gap and things weren’t moving as quickly as I expected.

But, they’ve picked it up along the way. I realized it was a matter of understanding our business. (they had some issues understanding how our business functions in Australia). This was a completely new industry for them.

There were a few challenges early on, but we developed an understanding of each other’s personalities, and we’re on the same tempo now. 

Mitul understands what I’m looking for, my business challenges, and my vision. We’re on the same page, and I haven’t had many challenges working with him recently. He also brought in a new project manager who is very good.

We use Jira extensively for all of the work and communication.  Our testers log all defects and comments into Jira, so it’s the sole task tracking tool for us. We have a scrum meeting every night on our time and every morning on theirs.

We’re working from the US and Australia, so there seems to be a bit of a cultural gap regarding different terminologies. But, I have no big challenges with them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’ve worked with lots of Indian companies and some Kenyan ones. What distinguishes Bytes Technolab is that, when they say it’s possible and that they’ll deliver, they will. 

We presented them with an initial document, they estimated the requirements, and their understanding of those requirements was right on. There were some ups and downs in the first six months, but not any technical issues.

They know what they’re doing, and they will tell us exactly what’s possible and what isn’t. I haven’t gotten the same kind of confirmation or clarity from other technology service providers.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could think more from the client’s point of view instead of just thinking of what we’re asking them to do. 

I always tell them “Understand where the questions and requirements are coming from. You can have your say about things you don’t necessarily agree with.” It’s okay to say that an idea or technology is wrong and suggest another way of doing it.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Clients should have no doubts about trusting Bytes Technolab or the quality of work that they’ll deliver. But, clients have to know what they’re doing before they give the work to them.

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 work at Contentplum, a social media content marketing company. We have been in this space since 2013.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bytes Technolab?

We need an outsourced team to perform extra software development that our in-house team isn’t able to do. For example, our customers wanted our widgets and social media platforms to have with e-commerce functionality, and we needed more staff to make that happen. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Bytes Technolab developed a wide array of features for our platform, including e-commerce capability, new widgets, and new plug-ins. They specifically addressed integrating e-commerce with third-party APIs from Instagram, Facebook, and Stripe. They’re full-stack service providers and perform front– and backend development. Their team also handles DevOps work.

What is the team composition?

We mainly worked with two engineers. Sometimes, they would pull in network engineers or frontend experts, but on a day-to-day basis it’s a team of two.

How did you come to work with Bytes Technolab?

I learned about Bytes Technolab through references and friends. After this, I initially engaged them to build a Magento plug-in. They did such a great job with this initial task that I decided to make them a long-term partner.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested between $25,000–$50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project began in 2016 and is still ongoing. They continue to make small tweaks to the API and maintain the system.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Customer growth has expanded rapidly; our e-commerce margins have doubled in size since Bytes Technolab’s solution launched. We’ve gotten very good reviews on Shopify and Magento. Our customers have also reported large gains since we added the e-commerce feature.

How did Bytes Technolab perform from a project management standpoint?

We mainly use Skype video calls and Asana for communication. When the workload is heavy, we have daily calls with them. All tasks, documentation, and checklists are stored in Asana. Our team assigns them tickets through Asana, and we often communicate through the program. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their personal approach is impressive. They want to work with you and make your business successful. Instead of having a selfish mindset, they work with us in a true partnership. If Facebook turns off our API or our site is down, I can reach out to them and they are always available. They resolve the problem as soon as they can.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It sounds contradictory, but I think they can engage more in design and with DevOps. Though they’ve started improving, I want them to increase their capabilities as a company. I think they could monitor these services more.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If you treat them as a partner, you will get a really good ROI in return. Try to explain what you’re trying to achieve and they will come up with a good idea on how to solve it.

Please describe your company and your position there.

At Celebration Giftware, we love creating unique personalized gifts to help customers celebrate those special moments in life: birthdays, new babies, christenings, engagements, and weddings. Our gifts are personalized so they come from the heart and make wonderful keepsakes that can be enjoyed for many years to come

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Bytes Technolab?

We needed a website that would reach our online audience. Our company was looking for an agency that would provide a comprehensive plan for the layout, navigation, and user experience. We wanted a simplistic design that would easily explain our gifts and company values.

What were your goals for this project?

The main goal has always been to build a user- and Google-friendly platform that can adapt to the ever changing e-commerce environment. We have a large inventory, and it was very important to ensure that the site could continually evolve as our business grew.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I’ve been in touch with them for over five years, and we’ve worked on two Magento projects. Most companies have certified developers and good project counts. However, after a few detailed calls, we realized that Bytes Technolab understood our vision and matched our price, terms, and delivery times best. I had already worked with them and was familiar with their process, so it was easy to arrange meetings.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We migrated from Magento 1 to Magento 2 before launching a new website. Bytes Technolab took this in stride, using great designs framework and turning it into a customized Magento 2 website. Their team created a user-friendly platform that showcases comparisons of gifts products and allows access to happiness. Visitors can easily search product reviews and other gifts options.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a designer, a developer, and a project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Within the first year, we saw a massive increase in online market visibility. Back in 2014, we had 1,091 keywords on the first page of Google. The Magento 1 website improved the overall customer behavior on our site. Users were sticking to our website, and it showed with Google analytics and sales.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We worked with three resources—a designer, a developer, and a project manager—and they all did a great job. Communication was easy, and they are always close at hand when emergency issues arise.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I must say, and my our whole team agrees to this, Bytes Technolab’s experienced assistance allowed the site to grow very quickly in the first year. Avoiding most pitfalls is a critical benefit when working with a knowledgeable agency. The end result comes in both cost and time savings.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I can’t think of anything.

We also have a B2B business model where we work with custom clothiers and specialty retail stores to offer our custom shoes. It was difficult to allow third-party sellers to offer custom shoes to their customers through our site. We wanted to move our site to Magento to have more flexibility and control, as well as access to the plugins available for Magento that make scaling easier.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Bytes Technolab helped us move our site to Magento. They now manage ongoing feature development and maintenance. In Magento, they were able to create a backend for our third-party customers to create designs, place orders, and track those orders. Those resellers have access to the same information as we do.

What is the team composition?

I interact closely with a business analyst and a project manager. There are a tech lead and three other developers working on the project.

How did you come to work with Bytes Technolab?

Someone referred me to them but I don’t remember who. I looked at their team structure and their developers’ qualifications. I also asked for sample work they had done for previous clients and I did some reference checks to get a sense of their process and quality of work. Once I was comfortable, I decided to move forward.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in December 2016 and it’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our business is driven by our website and they’ve played a key role in our success. Before, when we had to rely on the development team to make every change, it would take a long time. A customer could change their shipping address before the shoes were shipped but, by the time the change was made, the shoes would be shipped and the shipping charges incurred. The delays cost us customers. Now I have flexibility and control over all of these things on our end. Additionally, we’re now able to work with many more third-party resellers. Before the process was cumbersome and painful. Now it’s seamless, which has allowed us to scale that part of our business. Overall, from an order management perspective, it’s been easier for us as well as for other vendors to manage things that were previously all manual. Our business efficiency has significantly improved since working with Bytes Technolab.

How did Bytes Technolab perform from a project management standpoint?

We usually communicate on a daily basis. Depending on what project we’re working on and what’s on the roadmap, it may be every two or three days instead. I speak to the business analyst or the project manager, who provide me with updates. If they have any concerns or questions, they raise them with me. When I’ve had to call then on a weekend, they’ve been responsive. They’ve managed to pull a team together to help me out. I’ve been happy with what they’ve done for me and continue to work with them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I would say their work ethic. That's by far the most important skill that they have. They've been partners. They have the technical expertise—so they provide great suggestions and value—but they’re also able to work on challenging timelines. Sometimes I need them to move at a really fast pace and they're able to cope with that. For example, we had a collaboration with a TV show and I needed something done very quickly. They worked over the weekend and met the deadlines. The best thing about them is their ability to work with the timelines that I have and support us.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not really. Whenever I find something that I think they could do a better job on, I suggest it to them. They're open to feedback and make changes relatively quickly. As of right now, I can’t think of anything that I would want them to change.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I think having a structure and process in place early on at the start of the project really helps. That's something we did when we started working together and it laid the foundation.

What challenge were you trying to address with Bytes Technolab?

We needed a team to help set up sites and host all the technical projects we have as a company.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We have about 20 sites that they currently maintain. They developed backends for all of our sites and implement all the technologies and APIs that go into each one. We use custom reporting to pull information from multiple sources, which streamlines interface and backend creation, logins, and other tracking procedures. They use complex systems to tie all of our reporting together and make each site work faster.

What is the team composition?

The team includes a project coordinator and roughly three other developers.

How did you come to work with Bytes Technolab?

A colleague and a friend of mine referred them to us. I knew they could handle complex projects and felt they would be a good fit.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $50,000–$100,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

The collaboration began in December 2016 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Of all the technical developers and companies we’ve worked with, Bytes Technolab is the best. Their competence and knowledge of implementations is good, and the QA team ensures a near perfect product, every time. We love working with them; they’re phenomenal.

How did Bytes Technolab perform from a project management standpoint?

Communication is amazing. We have a weekly meeting by Skype and a project management solution that they oversee. We always know where they are and what projects are upcoming.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They follow through on every promise.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Documentation is something that they could work to improve. Otherwise, the engagement is successful.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Set up consistent meetings with them and put a project management solution in place to communicate through.

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 owner of Dasan Research, a software company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bytes Technolab?

Back in 2004, we were developing an online version of a program for entering chord charts into a database to use in reprinting. It’s primarily used by churches.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They delivered a MySQL database with 20,000 entries that we’re still using today. I recently it transferred it to AWS because our old platform stopped supporting our version of PHP. A few things didn’t work after we ported it, but my contact at Bytes Technolab fixed them immediately.

As the program designer, I designed the UI and functionality. Then, I gave them the images I wanted and drew pictures of how I wanted the screens to look. The program had to have user accounts with passwords to separate data between customers, but also support data sharing within specific groups (bands). There also had to be the ability to block our certain songs that were still in a preliminary stage.

What is the team composition?

I assume there was a single developer because they’re the only person I ever dealt with. I’m not aware of their team’s depth.

How did you come to work with Bytes Technolab?

I saw one of their ads and gave them a call. I was reluctant to use overseas developers because of previous relationships I’d had, but I gave Bytes an opportunity. We talked about how we’d work together, and I gave them the first program to try out. They were quite successful at taking my idea and converting it into a usable online tool.

How much have you invested with them?

Initially, a local developer charged me $7,000 for a few weeks of work. With Bytes Technolab, I’ve spent around $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We developed the platform from 2004 until 2005. There’ve been a few tweaks since then when people request more features.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Some of my customers were moving over to Apple, so my PC platform wasn’t going to work for them. I’ve kept them as customers, so the work has had a tremendous impact. Those people now pay annual subscription fees, rather than making a one-time purchase.

How did Bytes Technolab perform from a project management standpoint?

I’ve needed my developer several times because of the AWS transfer, and he’s always available. I’m not sure when he sleeps because I can go into Google Groups and he’s right there. During the first development, I’d send them something in the evening, and it would be done the next morning. Sometimes he might take a day to respond, but if it’s a small task, he’ll respond right away.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Compared to other offshore groups I’ve worked with, Bytes Technolab has amazing communication. Other firms have done good work, but I never knew if they’d respond in a day or a week. Bytes and I spoke every day or two, compared to every week or two. They were quick to add new features as well.

Their price was so good that I didn’t look anywhere else. They also excelled at understanding what I wanted. My developer's English is great, so I was able to communicate my ideas quickly.

Are there any areas they could improve?

While some features didn’t work initially, Bytes fixed them. Nobody’s perfect, and this is complicated cross-platform technology. I couldn't have asked for anything more. They did really well.
