Feedback summary: 

Franchisees are delighted with the improvement in speed. Code Inspiration exceeded expectations in delivering the work ahead of schedule. They also gave excellent alternatives to specifications that could improve the functionality of the software.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the commercial director of Time For You, a domestic cleaning franchise in the U.K.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Code Inspiration?

We had hired other developers to build our cloud database system, but it was clunky and old-fashioned. We wanted to liaise with someone who could provide us a modern look and feel as well as improve performance for our users.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Code Inspiration helped create our CRM. It is used by franchisees in the U.K. for the purpose of managing their business. This includes an app for creating digital contracts. Code Inspiration helped us increase the security and efficiency of that app. The data captured in these contracts is managed through the backend cloud database including the clients’ records, notes, files, calendar, attachments, and emails.

The team integrated numerous APIs for us, basically reprogramming the outdated PHP version, using a new language that made it faster and mobile-optimized. This allowed people to work on the go.

What is the team composition?

Their account manager liaised with me about specific project requirements. We had Skype meetings with a few of her team members for bug reports.

How did you come to work with Code Inspiration?

We were used to using freelance developers and found them on an outsourcing website. I went through a rigorous process and interviewed several developers, not wanting to fall into the same trap as with the previous team we hired. I looked at their previous clients and work. Code Inspiration came out at the top.

How much have you invested with them?

The total cost was £35,000 [$50,000].

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Code Inspiration 18 months ago. Currently, we’re finishing phase two of the project and entering the maintenance stage, fixing bugs and making user interface tweaks. We will be working with them again in 2018 for phase three of the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have over 150 franchise branches across the U.K. Based on their feedback, the speed at which the system works is the biggest improvement. The old system took a long time to load, but now search queries and reports come up straight away.

How did Code Inspiration perform from a project management standpoint?

We had a set budget for the project, and their estimate came within that budget. Code Inspiration delivered within budget and earlier than expected with the only delays coming from our side. I was given access to their Jira account for bug reporting and general project overview. We also used email and Skype for communication where they were always available.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were upfront in giving us alternative approaches to the ones we gave in the specifications when something might not have worked. Code Inspiration helped us see the project and came up with ideas we might not have thought of.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I’m happy with how the project was run.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Being specific about what is required is essential with any freelancing team. Clients should research and know the background of what they’re building.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The finished product met all requirements and was easily transferred back to the internal team for refinement. Code Inspiration impressed with their reponsive communication, efficient deliveries, and thorough project management.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are an information technology company, producing meteorological and ocean data. We also develop the mechanisms for the delivery of that data into 3rd-party applications, such as NDN Forwarding Daemon apps. I’m the managing director.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Code?

We didn’t have the internal capacity to finish an element in one of the mobile apps we were developing, so we had to outsource.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The mobile app was iOS only. We did the backend work internally, based on a software development kit we’d already built. They worked on the UI integration to make it work within an iOS app. The lead was taken from an app we’d previously developed for desktop OFX.

What is the team dynamic?

Our technical director handled the process on our side. On their team was 1 lead developer and 1 additional developer, and they added more people during development. It was an efficient collaboration between the two teams.

How did you come to work with Code?

Our research brought us to them based on their background and previous work. They fit the profile of what we needed.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2015, and the project lasted about 4 months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They did a pretty good job. We needed to finish it off ourselves, but that was our requirement.

How did Code perform from a project management standpoint?

They were open to communication at any time. When the project was in full tilt, our technical director was in touch with them at least 3 or 4 times a week. They communicated through email and Business Skype. Their written and verbal English was very good.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We had a positive experience. If we were to come up short again with our requirements, we would look to discuss more development with them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They were efficient in providing what we required, and their follow-up was very good. Anything we thought hadn’t been finished or needed additional work, they took that on board.

Do you have any advice or tips for other customers who will work with Code?

Discuss your project plan and ideas with them as much as possible initially, and proceed on that basis.

Feedback summary: 

The app’s more than 20,000 downloads provide ample information for market research. Code Inspiration is consistently on-time, conscientious about technical specs, and excellent at collaborating with nondevelopers. Their sought-after project management is easy to recommend.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of MF-Card.ru. We’ve been experimenting with an app for about three years. It started as a loyalty program, and we’ve done a couple pivots. Now we’re focusing only on market research.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Code Inspiration?

We needed someone to develop our iOS and Android apps.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Code Inspiration did all of the coding for our iOS and Android apps, and our internal team developed the backend.

Our app is similar to Ibotta and Checkout 51, which offer smart shopping using proofs of purchase. The buyer takes a picture of the receipt and receives a reward or rebate via the app. Our app has a slight difference. A group of purchasers send us their receipts and we do marketing research.

After they built the app, we kept adding features, and we had a lot of strategy pivots. There ended up being several features that users didn’t actually use. Now we’re building a completely different app, which includes the features that have worked out the best in our experiments. We rolled out the first version a month ago.

What is the team dynamic?

There are three to four developers. The coder changed partway through, which I was concerned about, but it didn’t prove to be a problem.

I describe and draw the flow, and they ask questions about functionality and then write technical specifications to run by my team. If we have very sophisticated features to implement or if any information is unclear, they come back to me once a day with a build. Alternately, if everything’s self-explanatory, they tell me how long the coding will take and get in touch with me when it’s finished. I check the app and give my feedback, and they make changes and fix any bugs.

How did you come to work with Code Inspiration?

We posted technical specs on a website developers frequent, and we received a few bids. Code Inspiration was one of the teams.

We asked each team to provide timelines, what they would do, and what approach they would take. I gave everyone a task to see how accurately and quickly they would deliver it. Then, we visited each office and talked to the developers themselves. After meeting Code Inspiration, we decided to go with them.

How much have you invested with them?

Around $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2013 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The number of downloads was between 20,000 and 30,000. It’s difficult to judge the impact by these numbers, because it’s not a mass media app and we didn’t advertise publicly. We invited specific types of people to collect information from and pay them to send in receipts. That number of downloads was more than enough for us work with.

It’s also hard to judge the app’s user-friendliness, because it was customized for use by whoever participated in our system.  

How did Code Inspiration perform from a project management standpoint?

I’ve had experience with other teams. Yaroslav [CEO, Code Inspiration] is one of the best project managers I’ve come across. He usually delivers when he says he will. I don’t recollect them missing a deadline.

I even tried to get Yaroslav onto my team. But he’s in a different country and it would cost me too much.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I like that they’re always on time.

We always find common ground to create a quality product together. If they make a mistake, they admit it and redo it free of charge. We never have integrations that we’re not able to agree on, and if we run into problems, they’re always solvable. That’s very important when working with a partner.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I’ve worked with other developers to see what’s happening on the market. I haven’t found anyone to match the qualities I value in them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Always be as clear and detailed as possible with your technical specs. I’m not a coder myself, so mine are often a bit sloppy. It took a lot of conversations for them to pull those details out of me. Everything is solvable, but the more specifics you can give at the outset, the less the project is going to cost.

Feedback summary: 

The platform could accommodate over 10,000 concurrent users and served as a helpful basis for other sites. Code Inspiration's Agile development expertise, technical skill, and flexible management were integral to the project's success.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Premium Betting Technologies is based in Malta. We provide sports betting platforms using a core development team based in Estonia. We handle the development of backend functionalities, including the processing of bets on servers, main transaction coordination, and so on. We have developed some frontend channels targeted to retail markets, guided by a client.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Code Inspiration?

We wanted to enter a wider market with an online betting platform, looked for a partner for the work, and selected Code Inspiration.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Code Inspiration has provided development on our online betting frontend for web and mobile. They have also helped us with customizations and skinning of the platform, on behalf of clients.

After the evaluation, the task was to develop a full-featured website with many additional functionalities to what we already had in our terminal application. The terminal is completely different from the site, and it was given to Code Inspiration as a working example of a platform which communicates with our system. Their task was to create a website which could survive a high volume of transactions and traffic from multiple clients.

The development was based in the Java technology. We didn’t want them to do any database development, as the data is stored in our core system. Code Inspiration used caching technologies like Redis for handling high loads of sports data, translations and session localizations. They have developed a system which is horizontally-scalable across any load.

They have continued to improve what had already been delivered, like a sports book for live games. There can be multiple games taking place at the same time, with constantly-changing data which can overload slower computers. Code Inspiration has made some amazing optimizations quickly for this.

What is the team dynamic?

Code Inspiration has a specialized team. I have worked with five developers and a couple of designers. They had experts in Java Enterprise Edition, as well as very good frontend developers for cross-browser application implementation.

How did you come to work with Code Inspiration?

We had a kiosk or Windows terminal application developed by our own team in .NET. The communication interface between this frontend and the backend was already in place. We gave Code Inspiration a pilot project as a way of determining their understanding of the scope. They delivered in two weeks. It was only meant for us to see what technologies they would use, and how they would architect the system. The work wasn’t perfect, but we were happy with it. We evaluated multiple partners, and selected Code Inspiration.

How much have you invested with them?

We have spent above $100,000 on their services so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Code Inspiration three years ago. They are continuing development, and are also working on an online casino application.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The site Code Inspiration developed for us is functional, handling loads from 10,000 concurrent users or even more. During weekends and Friday evenings, there are many games and people placing bets on them. Altogether, we have over 300,000 registrations made through our clients, who are the actual bookmakers. We have developed different sites for them, based on the technology given to us by Code Inspiration. They have definitely been helpful for the growth of our company.

How did Code Inspiration perform from a project management standpoint?

They have an Agile, sprint-based approach. I am fine with this, as an IT manager leading a team of 12 developers. I have a different approach, but we have delivered through Code Inspiration, which was the important part. Even though I may not like it much, I am not looking to change their management structure. Whenever I want to get the current status of a task from the system, it’s a bit messy, but they do the work.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I work in Estonia, but I am originally from Russia. When starting subcontracting work, we have a selection of three major markets: Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. I have worked with companies from Russia and India, and this particular company from Belarus has been the best. It’s why I keep working with them—Code Inspiration is ready for whatever issues may arise. There is a huge amount of subcontracting companies, but we rarely see a team working as if they were developing their own product.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Reporting could be improved. I’ve spent quite a lot of time rechecking what Code Inspiration developed; there was nothing exceptional, but the reporting for feature implementation and testing could definitely be improved.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Daily communication must be maintained, making sure that things are in order, and that the developer understands what the client needs. In my own management, I have discussed everything with developers before the sprint was started. After the two-or-three-week development, I will get feedback from the testers. This is fine for my own team, but I have to keep an eye on Code Inspiration’s people, to make sure they are doing the right things.
