Feedback summary: 

Clavax Technologies performed very well throughout their partnership with the client. They understood the vision and the challenges, and had the skills to succeed. The agency is praised for their communication skills and is recommended to others.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Recomonk has bloggers who sell the products that they recommend.

What is your position?

I was the CEO of Recomonk.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Clavax Technologies?

I was involved with different outsourcing companies before Clavax and faced many challenges including technical quality and timing among others. When I started working with Clavax, I actually stuck with them for more than a year because I found all these challenges were resolved. In time, I got to know the people personally, too. I went to their office back in Delhi a couple of times and met the team out there. Everyone was very friendly. I didn't have any problems after that.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

This project is a web service for bloggers. Some of the web services was buried, but many features were missing. The way I worked with them was I used to give them tasks for either two weeks or a month, depending on how big is the task, and either have daily calls or calls dependent on the progress. It was not a completely scoped out task that I gave to them, but more like in chunks depending on the features I wanted, depending on the feedback that I was getting from bloggers, things like that. We worked in chunks, and I worked with them for around a year. They created many features for the website. I even had to create Facebook stores. I think most of that application was done in PHP and MySQL, so this is what they worked in, JavaScript, PHP, and MySQL.

How did you come to work with Clavax Technologies?

I found them through Elance [now Upwork]. They had good reviews. My idea was I give them a small task and see how they perform and then go from there. I give them the task and they performed really well. The communication was very clear. I found them to be better than many of the other outsourcing providers that I'd worked with in the past, so I decided to continue with them and for the better.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

It was between $10,000 and $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project is completed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

How did Clavax Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

Clavax were good, which is why I stuck with them. I have worked with many providers in the past on Elance, but their work stood out. qI could rely on Clavax, and I could call them at any time. That was important to me.

What distinguishes Clavax Technologies from other providers?

I think Clavax understands the challenges of the product, and they did understand my point of view, which is why sometimes they even worked during weekends, if needed. I would say one is the fact that they were technically capable. Second: they were willing to do whatever it takes to make the project successful. Their communication skills were good.

Is there anything Clavax Technologies could have improved or done differently?

I wanted to create Android application. I wasn't very satisfied with that on the technical front and the cost front, but that was just for a very small time. Maybe some improvements out there on the mobile Android front cost wise but, apart from that technical-wise, it was fine.

What business challenge were you trying to address with Clavax Technologies?

We were working on big data warehouse project, and we worked with Clavax in order to get the results onboard and get the project up and running, not only development but also the operation.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

Clavax helped us unify all of our data into one database. We are trying to move from the RDBMS SQL [relational database management system structured query language] server to MongoDB.

It has cost more than $150,000.

What distinguishes Clavax Technologies from other providers?

The leadership team's commitment to the project distinguishes them. Whenever I feel there is a problem and an issue that I cannot fix from the low level or junior level, I can always reach out to the management, and they make sure that everything will line up again.

Is there anything Clavax Technologies could have improved or done differently?

They could be a bit more hands on.

Please describe your organization.

I work for Dynasty Electronic Company. We assemble circuit boards and components for aerospace companies, as well as consumer electronics, anything with PCBs [printed circuit boards] or circuit boards.

What is your position?

I'm the quality manager of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Clavax Technologies?

We were looking to revamp our website. It hadn't been updated in many years, so we wanted to use the website revamp as a marketing tool to gain a larger customer base and to showcase the services that we provide. We partnered with Clavax to work on our website.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

We provided Clavax with the designs and layout that we wanted for the website, and they fully developed the site based on our concept. We wanted to have a page that specified the services, the different markets that we work with, and a page where potential customers can contact us for a quote.

How did you come to work with Clavax Technologies?

We had a customer that hired Clavax to build their website, and we liked how their website looked. We contacted our customer and asked them who developed it, and then they referred Clavax.

BACKGROUND

What is your position?

I'm a founding partner.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Clavax Technologies?

We needed a development team that would be able to take our requirements, wireframe, and back-end functionality, and make it all come together, both the back-end and the front-end. [This gave us] the ability to be able to look at chapters of your life, repost questions, answer that question in detail, capture that, store it, share it with others, and cherry pick what chapters you want to share with others. They also built an admin feature to let us go in and look at traffic.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

Clavax built our platform on a PHP platform. They were responsible for the back-end and front-end of the site. They also put together a WordPress site for us so we could, on our own, be able to swap out marketing content or to be able to put blog posts and things like that together.

How did you come to work with Clavax Technologies?

We found them on Elance. I was impressed by the number of reviews they had. 

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

It cost between $10,000 and $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The first phase of the project is done. There's some additional functionality that we're going to add to the platform, but we are not currently working on them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

I'm not going to have a whole lot to share with you because it's still in beta. We haven't even rolled out a marketing plan yet. Whatever little traffic we get is organic. They haven't even tried to publish it and haven't even worked with SEO [search engine optimization] to try to get more users using it just yet. The very little usage has been down. We didn't want to keep it trying to work out before we're ready to spend the money and time to make it.

How did Clavax Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

Clavax was great. I  had a single point of contact who served as the application coordinator and project manager. He was very communicative. We Skyped a lot.

What distinguishes Clavax Technologies from other providers?

I have a project management background. I worked for Travelocity for a number of years. I've been very fortunate to work with teams and to visit teams all around the world. Clavax was at the top of the list as far as getting the requirements right without having to do a lot of back and forth. There is some back and forth always. It's the nature of the beast, but these guys were quick to learn. They were quick to understand it. It was a pleasure working with them.

Is there anything Clavax Technologies could have improved or done differently?

We had a requirement about this one feature about being able to record your voice and, unfortunately, trying to record your voice through a browser, it supports in IE [Internet Explorer] and Chrome, but it didn't support in Safari. We didn't know that getting into it, so they hit a brick wall. They thought they'd be able to pull it off and, as they did further research, they're like, "No, sorry. It's a limitation that Apple doesn't allow you to actually record your voice." The point is, had we known that in the beginning, we would have been a little less frustrated.

Feedback summary: 

Clavax Technologies has been an effective partner for the client. The partnership’s start was less than ideal and included a buggy module, but since Clavax Technologies added dedicated quality control to their team, performance has been excellent.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

I work for Sam Media, a lead generation service.

What is your position?

I am the director of the email division. We send about 22 million emails throughout the world every month. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Clavax Technologies?

The business goal is to have a central point where we can receive all the leads different parties send to us. We want to be able to control that flow, both coming in and out. Within that framework, we also want to have some features like validations and reporting. So far, Clavax has helped us with all of that. 

The next challenge is that we are growing, and the amount of data that's going in and out is becoming rather big, so the original set up on MySQL is starting to reach its limitation. We are now, together with Clavax, looking for a solution that will help us grow to the next level.

SOLUTION

Please describe the specific service that they provided for you.

Clavax has created the database for us to store the incoming leads, including features on how to validate the incoming leads that we're purchasing and how to redistribute them.

The first service Clavax provided was data migration because data was originally on a small database on our servers. That data needed to be migrated. If I recall correctly, in time, we came to the conclusion that we needed to scale up on the servers. The data from the old server needed to move to the new server. Clavax was very helpful in taking care of the whole back-end part of migration. From that perspective, they are a full-service company.

How did you come to work with Clavax Technologies?

We've been working with Clavax for, I think, almost two years now but, if I'm not mistaken, we posted the job on Elance, and we got a response from Clavax. They asked us to elaborate on our request so that they could come up with a suitable solution.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

We have spent more than $50,000 working with Clavax.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics, metrics, or other feedback from your work with Clavax?

We are continuously improving our operation. We now have a number of APIs [application programming interfaces] running. There are 10 active import APIs and two export APIs that are doing more than a million transactions monthly. We are currently upgrading the platform to handle even bigger volumes. Those are our key metrics.

How did Clavax Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

When you have been working together for two years, there are, of course, ups and downs. But, from a personal perspective, Deepak is a very knowledgeable, sensible project manager. The difficulty is that he is used on many projects. He has been trying to delegate the work to a senior programmer who was, let's say, less qualified for the job.

It took some time to find a good working combination and the specific project management skills. Deepak compensated enough for the senior programmer's talents. That took some work from our end and some patience but, all in all, the balance between price and quality is good.

What distinguishes Clavax Technologies from other providers?

What I like is that Clavax has a good pool of people who can work on a project. One month, there would be just one person working on the project part-time and then, in the next month, there might be three people working full time. They are flexible in dedicating resources as needed and coming up with solutions to fit our needs.

Is there anything Clavax Technologies could have improved or done differently?

There was a period when one module turned out to have all sorts of bugs, but that has now been resolved. The quality control before being passed onto us could have been better. Clavax has now added someone to the team that takes care of quality control. The number of complaints from our end on finished products has dramatically decreased.

Feedback summary: 

Clavax Technologies contributed to an ambitious site that links thousands of users. The agency performed well throughout the project and acted with a high degree of autonomy. The time difference between the client and agency was the only real issue.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Our company manufactures electronic products for the agriculture industry.

What is your position?

I'm in the engineering department.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Clavax?

Our goal was twofold. We have a server side with the website for communicating with the new product we were designing as well as having mobile apps for Apple and Android.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

Clavax created an app specific to our product for Apple devices. They also created the same application for the Android side. Both those applications had to communicate with the main server – our devices all communicate to a centralized server through software developed by Clavax. That same server stores all the information from the devices and allows them to retrieve that stored information.

How did you come to work with Clavax?

I found them through Elance. Clavax was one of the companies that competed for our project.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

We've spent somewhere between $10,000 and $50,000 working with Clavax.

What is the status of this engagement?

Clavax finished the project for us several months ago, but we're still making changes on a few things that didn't work quite the way we wanted. Clavax is making those ongoing changes for us, but for the most part, the project is complete.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics, metrics or other feedback from your work with Clavax?

Our site is different from sites like eBay, where everything is happening at the interface between the site and the user. Our website is more driven by what is running in the background by talking to our devices and putting material in databases. The site that Clavax designed sends out text and email messages to all the users, depending on the data that it receives from the devices in the field. All this is going on in the background 24/7. Ultimately, there'll be thousands upon thousands of units connected to this site, but it will just perform the same function.

The only interaction the user has with the front-end of the website itself is just to add new devices to their account or change their credit card – things like that. They can monitor information on the website and see historical data, but they pretty much can do the same thing on their phone apps, which is what most people are doing. Once they've signed up on the website, they just use the app or just go to the text messages they get on a daily basis. Ultimately, thousands upon thousands of devices will be connecting to the site.

How did Clavax perform from a project management standpoint?

They were Good. Because I'm in engineering, I knew about the details of the project from the beginning. I knew exactly what I wanted to do and how I wanted the site to function. I defined the majority of the scope of the project before it even started. I didn't have to rely on Clavax to figure things out. They did have to figure out how they were going to get the project done, but as far as the details of how the project was going to work, that was something that I did upfront. I gave them as much detail as I could.

Working with them was not a problem at all. They have several programmers and a project manager here in the United States, but our project manager was a nontechnical person, so she would ultimately have to talk with the people in India anyway. Clavax allowed me to work directly with the developer working on the project, so I didn't have to get second- or third-hand information. I liked working directly with the developer himself because I could resolve problems right away. I could send him an email directly, and the next day everything would be resolved or the problem fixed.

Clavax didn't require me to go through a project manager. I was able to work with the developer directly, which because of the language barrier, is not always the case. In Clavax's case, I was able to work with our developer directly, which was very helpful.

What distinguishes Clavax from other providers?

I got several quotes from American companies versus offshore companies, so definitely from the standpoint of economics, working with Clavax did save us a considerable amount of money in developer costs.

Is there anything Clavax could have improved or done differently?

The one thing I actually had talked about to both their project manager and owner, was to suggest to them the potential importance of having developers here in California to take care of some of the needs that require them to be in the same time zone. I understand that they would have to charge at a different rate for U.S. developers. I suggested to them that the only thing that was a hurdle for us was the time difference, but we knew this was something we were willing to deal with going into the project. The time difference was sometimes a problem since I could only talk to our developer either late at night or early in the morning my time.

    They were excellent about this. If they told me a price, they stuck with it even if it took them more time than they had estimated. They did what they said they would do for the cost they gave us.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Our company manufactures precision-based modular instruments and systems for distribution, acquisition and monitoring of electronic signals. Their products and systems are utilized to gather and monitor data, which characterize the physical integrity and performance of engines, aircraft, and other large structures.

What is your position?

I am the IT lead in the company. I take care of everything website and web application related.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Clavax Technologies?

We reached out to Clavax to develop a web application with a complete backend and CMS solution.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

Clavax was responsible for building a website with various pages. They also integrated marketing automation modules to it and tied it to CMS software and databases. We gave them the concept and content for the application, and they fully developed it using ASP.NET, SQL Server, AJAX, HTML5, CSS3 among other technologies.

How did you come to work with Clavax Technologies?

I was not part of the decision-making process to hire them, so I'm not able to answer this. 

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

The size of the project was in the $10,000 to $50,000 price range.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project has wrapped up. It was supposed to be a three-month project, but it took longer than expected.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

It is hard for me to say what we can attribute to Clavax’s work directly. Right after we launched the site, our traffic was down because we used to have an old, but well-established website. We have since worked on our search engine optimization [SEO] and gotten it back. That’s not on Clavax. The site was deployed too quickly without thinking about the SEO implications of it.

How did Clavax Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

They did a good job, but we definitely had to keep an eye on them. We had to make sure to communicate and verify that the work being done was what we wanted.

What distinguishes Clavax Technologies from other providers?

The Clavax team is very skilled at what they do. They definitely have the know-how approach and they're able to develop complex projects.  

Is there anything Clavax Technologies could have improved or done differently?

I can’t think of much. In terms of working with an offshore company, they are good.

They have been our partner for a long time. They developed our website and our backqend applications fully. They did an iPad app, which has been revamped by our onsite teams. That was two or three years ago. They used PHP and the backend is MySQL.

A lot of their work was on brand new projects, which increased both our traffic and revenue. We're leaders in our kind of technology.

How did Clavax Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management was very good. We met key deadlines. Quality did suffer because of our aggressive deadlines, but that can be blamed on both of us equally.

What distinguishes Clavax Technologies from other providers?

Clavax Technologies always gives 110 percent. We worked hard in meeting some key deadlines. Dedication and hard work are their strong suits.

Is there anything Clavax Technologies could have improved or done differently?
