Feedback summary: 

The platform is preparing for deployment. The team at Celadon is transparent and experienced. Their communicative approach supplemented their professional management style.

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 CEO of an insurance software vendor company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Celadon?

We asked Celadon to create an MVP that we could sell to companies.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Celadon developed an app for clients of insurance companies. Their team worked based on the full requirements we provided, building the backend using Python. The app collects and analyzes information about driving habits. It produces analytics for companies, through which they can make decisions about insurance payments.

What is the team composition?

We worked with one project manager, a designer, and 3–4 developers.

How did you come to work with Celadon?

We found them through Clutch. Our team reviewed over 100 companies. In terms of skills and cost, Celadon provided a reasonable cost for qualified work. We’re also both based in Belarus.

How much have you invested with them?

It was below $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Celadon in February 2019, and it took six months for the app to be completed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve made contracts with this application, and we’ll likely continue working with Celadon on it. Right now, we’re customizing pages that allow clients to provide the service to their insurees. Before the platform can be deployed, we have several questions to answer.

The systems of the companies we’re targeting have to comply with specific laws. We received stats on other apps from our marketers before the build began, but ours haven’t received concrete statistics yet. I believe it is performing well.

How did Celadon perform from a project management standpoint?

Within our six-month contract, Celadon was able to build the application. Their team was honest about how much time it would take. We communicated through Jira throughout the project. When we needed to get in touch with the director, we used phone calls or messenger.

What did you find most impressive about them?

There are very few providers available for machine learning and Python development. Celadon had excellent reviews. Our partners had information about their skilled team as well. It’s easy to control their work and the spend because they’re based in the same country as us.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There aren’t many companies that could’ve built this app. Celadon should focus on growing and bringing in more developers. This will help their team take on more jobs at the same time.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

I can recommend Celadon for machine learning and AI projects.

Feedback summary: 

The first phase was successful, and Celadon will assist with the second phase in the future. They were strong communicators in both English and Arabic. Their transparency and the quality of their work set them apart, and they established a strong synergy with the internal team.

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 manage gyms in the UAE. I'm the CEO, and I started the company about two years ago.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Celadon?

We hoped to venture into mobile applications. Our clients would benefit from an app that could show them how to exercise properly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They supported us as consultants and developers, and they suggested functionality that captures users’ movements through a phone camera. The app then analyzes movements through 3D points and reports whether users are completing exercises correctly. We provided a concept and some basic wireframes, but they built the whole app from scratch for iOS and Android. They suggested the best technologies to use, and they helped us understand the technology requirements with a mind to the future. Based on their recommendations, we chose React Native and C++ to build the app.

What is the team composition?

I communicated with an account manager and a technical lead. In the early stages of the frontend development, we also worked with a graphic designer.

How did you come to work with Celadon?

A friend referred them to us. They were initially consultants, but we liked their approach and decided to give them the whole project.

How much have you invested with them?

We have an arrangement with them that I prefer to keep confidential. Compared to other developers in our region, their rates were good for the high level of their experience.

What is the status of this engagement?

The engagement ran from January-July 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

How did Celadon perform from a project management standpoint?

They're fantastic project managers. We took our time at the beginning to change the designs. That added a week or so to the timeline, but everything else was delivered exactly as they promised it would.

Communication is their best quality. They always include us in the project, and I love working with their team. We are always in the loop, and their deliveries are on time. Their transparency and their quality are amazing. They read our minds and provide exactly what we want. The ease of the process is wonderful.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have the tools to help us. One of our contacts on their side is fluent in Arabic, which made communication even easier. As an Arab-based company, our team members have varying levels of fluency in English. Having a resource who could connect to our whole team established synergy that we appreciated.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We don't have anything they should improve up to now, and we're currently planning a second phase with 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’m the CEO of Hallowgate, a social media marketing company. We’re creating a platform to link brand influencers and companies looking for influencer talent. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Celadon?

We engaged Celadon to build our platform. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Celadon created two web applications and an Android application; they then integrated these multi-sited systems to make up our platform.

One web app is exclusively for advertisers—the brand clients who use our system to find ambassadors. Celadon built the app using JavaScript, React, Express, MySQL, Node.js, Sketch, and other technologies. The other web app is for donors—users who want to fund organizations with limited resources that are looking to broaden brand awareness. The team built in search methods on both apps so that donors and advertisers can connect.

For the brand influencers, Celadon developed an Android application with an API that connects to the web app for advertisers. We wanted to create an iOS version and payment system as well, but we ran into time constraints.

Celadon designed the overall system and created user stories. We gave our approval on how to define the user experience; they used our feedback to start building and testing each app.

What is the team composition?

We work with two developers, a UI/UX designer, a QA engineer, and a project manager.

How did you come to work with Celadon?

We searched online for Europe-based developers and came across Celadon. I downloaded one of their apps to my phone, and its sophisticated execution impressed me. We then reached out to their team to complete our project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2019, and the project is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Celadon executed each program perfectly and met our tight deadline for delivery. The apps have launched, and we already are seeing clients join and revenue coming in. We’ve commissioned them for more work. Celadon is currently making modifications and another module for an app update. Once the update is finished, they’ll help us manage the platform.

How did Celadon perform from a project management standpoint?

The team is highly responsive; they reply to our messages within minutes. Each team member ensures that someone is accessible even while one of them is traveling. They find back-up means of communication when one doesn’t work. We regularly interface with their team through WhatsApp and receive weekly updates.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their software engineering skills are superb. The team went above and beyond to make sure that the final products are viable and secure, which we appreciate. They also provide accurate estimates and total transparency; the team was honest about what they could and could not do within our given timeframe. That gave me a lot of reassurance.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their graphic design could be more visually appealing, but we’re otherwise thrilled with their work.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Make sure you understand your project, its functions, and its intended audience in advance. Celadon will help you bring it to life.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I work for a travel agency that offers a wide range of tours and holiday packages. We also help customers acquire permits and visas.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Celadon?

We hired them to create a user-friendly mobile application for iOS and Android. The app would allow users to manage their documents and apply for visas with a few clicks.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to increase client engagement and loyalty by simplifying their experience for visa application. We wanted to offer a smooth UX that required minimal effort. We also wanted to upsell our tour booking services.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were a referral.

Describe the project in detail.

Celadon built an app and integrated several third-party APIs from our partner networks. They also added an AI smart offer feature, which displays potentially interesting tours based on in-app user behavior and history. They also made sure to secure user data and stored documents.

The Celadon team continues to implement new features. For example, we realized that we needed to develop an advanced application management interface. We also had to add some integration to our existing management software.

What was the team composition?

Initially, I met a manager from Celadon who helped me compose the project brief. When the project started, Alexei (Co-founder, Celadon) became our main contact. We’ve also worked with two frontend and two backend developers from their team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We got positive feedback from our clients during testing.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Alexei knows how to plan and manage well, so our workflow is smooth and tight. It feels like we have our own software development department.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They are honest and creative.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Unfortunately, Celadon does not offer training for the management and maintenance of the app.

Feedback summary: 

The resulting web app’s ease of use, along with the problems it eliminated, makes it an essential tool for the business. Celadon addressed bugs very promptly and handled change requests with impressive flexibility. They’re a responsive team and will likely handle future feature additions to the product.

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 managing director of StalTorm, a company that specializes in supplying steel parts for construction.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Celadon?

We were using a couple of standard software tools but had trouble synchronizing them. As a result, a lot of our work was being done manually through phone calls and data was being lost in the process of communicating between the facility and our management office. I was trying to solve this by somehow automating the process. At the same time, I wanted to simplify it so that we could avoid these problems kinds of problems altogether.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Celadon developed a web platform that I can administrate. It allows me to create users for managers and assign responsibilities for orders. We can track the amount materials we’re producing, how much is being ordered, and how managers are supplying the facility.

I’m not a specialist in software development, so they gave me a project description and provided designs for me to approve. I’ve been testing the delivered software, and after requesting a couple of changes, we’ve started to use it.

What is the team composition?

There were multiple developers involved but I’ve mainly interacted with their manager, who’s also a Russian speaker, making the collaboration quite comfortable and smooth.

How did you come to work with Celadon?

A friend recommended them. They understood our business and the problem we were facing.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost of their work has been around $21,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Celadon in the fall of 2017 and the app was completed by January 2018. We’ll probably work on developing additional functionalities in the future.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The product is easy to use and it’s easy to teach our workers to use it. We’ve faced very few problems, and they’re fixed immediately by Celadon.

How did Celadon perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated through phone calls and messenger tools, and they always responded immediately. I changed some requirements during development and thought that it could become a problem, but they were very flexible and responsive. They quickly understood what I wanted to change and delivered per my request.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I found it quite easy to collaborate and communicate with them. I never felt that my requirements were too complex nor that the work was overpriced at any point. There was a level of trust between us during this engagement. I doubted whether I needed custom software in the beginning, but I’m now convinced that the tool they built is really useful.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They ask for prepayment for their work, which I understand they do for securing themselves, but trusting clients more could help them. However, after we started working together and I saw the first results of their work, I knew I didn’t have to worry. We ended up giving just a small payment in advance and then paid them based on the delivered work.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Celadon was offering us a fixed-price, but they suggested going with a time-and-materials model, which made us both more relaxed during the work. I didn’t trust this model very much at first, but it proved to be quite convenient.
