What was the scope of their involvement?
They provided us with two frontend and two backend developers, as well as a QA manager and a general project manager. We came to them with initial wireframes and full UX designs, but beyond that their involvement was very direct, and they were able to provide us with a lot of expertise in developing the final project.
Some of the main features they delivered included the ability for an artist to upload content after their job has been completed, as well as for stripe integration in the payment system. They used a combination of Laravel and AngularJS, and incorporated other features with MongoDB, SQL, and AWS as well.
In the end, they delivered a fully functioning site that ticks all the boxes in terms of what we needed it to do. We set out to create an MVP, so it was very fit for purpose. It didn’t have all the bells and whistles, but I think they were a great team for narrowing down exactly what we were looking for.
What is the team composition?
Our main points of contact were Andrei (CEO, Clockwise Software) and Dimitri (Project Manager, Clockwise Software). We had two backend and two frontend developers as well, so there were six people working on the project for the most part (although we had fewer people towards the final stages when we didn’t need as much attention).
How did you come to work with Clockwise Software?
We found them through Upwork. I think the main reason why we chose them over a few alternatives was the price—they were very affordable compared to the alternatives we were looking at. Their team was also the most responsive in terms of getting back to us with signing NDAs and talking about the future of the project.
They actually presented us with a suggested scope the day after we started engaging in chats with them, which we thought was very professional and forthcoming, so we decided to work with them.
How much have you invested with them?
We invested £30,000 (approximately $36,500 USD) in the project.
What is the status of this engagement?
We worked with Clockwise Software from January—May 2019.
