In addition, they implemented VideoBuilder to manage our CMS and update our content.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from June 2017–January 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We received positive feedback from all our clients on the look and feel of the website. We also got great internal feedback on our new CMS's functionality and easy-to-use navigational interface.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

I was the main project manager for the project. Their team responded to our needs quickly, and always answered our questions with solutions. We talked via a phone, email, a messenger, and Skype. Overall, it was a pleasure working with them, and they met all our project milestones on time.

I found their friendly and supportive attitude from Canary Software impressive. They were always ready to help us with additional updates or advice. Their communication skills were excellent.

Our language barrier was sometimes hard to deal with. They often felt more comfortable communicating through email and chat because only one of their employees spoke understandable English. Aside from that, they were very helpful.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Their development deliverables receive positive feedback, with praise for the quality of the work and little QA required. They ensure that project scopes are well thought out before development begins, working to iron out any issues and understand the customer requirements.

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're a consulting company working with different types of organizations on software development projects in the solar and LED science spaces. I'm the CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Canary Software?

I was trying to find a software development partner who was responsive and affordable while delivering quality work that didn’t require reworking. We're outsourcing this portion of the business.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Canary handled all the software development, along with some of the scoping and technical specifications. I gave them a broad-level scope, which they refined and then submitted to the customer for approval. We didn’t typically provide wireframes and technical documentation. They've developed custom web apps for us, using the Symfony 2 framework.

What is the team composition?

I worked with two individuals from their team.

How did you come to work with Canary Software?

I was referred to them by another company I was doing work for.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost of their work is $20,000–$30,000 per year.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Canary around July 2016 and the collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I receive good reviews about their work—they have high-quality software developers. I’ve learned how to get good results from working with them, over the years. The QA process is a minor part of what we need to do, given how strong the development is.

How did Canary Software perform from a project management standpoint?

I haven’t used them for project management, but generally, I’ve found them to be communicative. A project might take longer than anticipated, but they always let me know and we work it out. We use email for most of the communication and the team understands English well. This is a testament to how well the process works: we don’t have to spend a lot of time on the phone.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re good to work with. They’re fair and they stand behind their work. If they mess something up, they always make it right. They're definitely a good company to work with.

Are there any areas they could improve?

As they grow, they might automate some things that they currently do manually. They're a small company, so they don’t have fancy interfaces and things of this sort. However, these are just minor details.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

If the customer is able to write up the specifications document clearly, they'll get a good outcome. One thing that Canary does well is to help clients find things that they may have missed early on, before the work is started. This gives us a chance to bring the scope to the customer and clear it up before the work begins. It can help reduce surprises or delays during the project.
