The Review
Feedback summary: 

The team’s updates and optimization work have made the web application run more smoothly. Expect a communicative partner with the expertise and dedication to continue the progress of a long-term engagement.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the co-founder and CEO of Full Genomes Corporation. We offer genome next-generation sequencing (NGS) and various forms of analysis, including phylogeny, SNPs, and STR.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire CodeBright?

We needed to expand the capabilities of our web application.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to improve UX and increase the value of the product that we provide to our customers, which would enable us to compete with big players in our field.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We did some research, read reviews from past clients and conducted a few interviews before choosing CodeBright.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Besides the general maintenance and miscellaneous upgrades that they’ve been implementing on the web app, they have been developing an essential new component: a visualization of the DNA test results from large amounts of raw data. That would create a visual representation that a layman can understand and interact with. The web app is coded in Python and Django.

What was the team composition?

We’ve worked with either a project manager or a team leader.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’ve designed and implemented new UI, added features, and made updates and fixes that have made our app run more smoothly. They’re still working on the visualization of test results.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We used project management tools and exchanged emails and phone calls.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They do their best to keep the project moving forward.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, we’re completely satisfied.

Feedback summary: 

User feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Organization and efficiency were hallmarks of their work. CodeBright kept the project moving (and on budget) through constant communication, providing critical status updates throughout the engagement.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m a general manager of a medium-sized construction company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire CodeBright?

We needed an external resource to develop a custom software web application to better run our business.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to replace an outdated and obsolete system.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We’d worked with CodeBright before.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

CodeBright reverse engineered our old system. Using PHP and Laravel, they built a new system from the ground up to run our back-office, commissions, and accounting. 

What was the team composition?

A team of 10-12 people are working full-time on this project, including a project manager, QA expert, team lead, as well as front- and backend developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve been up and running with our new software for over two months now. We couldn’t be happier. CodeBright built it specifically for us so it fits our needs perfectly. It’s similar to our old program but it works flawlessly and is reliable. They gave us new features that we’ve wanted for the last 10 years.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project management (e.g., scrum and sprints) was very effective. Their team is organized and motivated. We were so impressed that we’re actually thinking of adopting some of the best practices in our business.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their workflow structure was most impressive and refreshing.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Nothing major. We've suggested they keep the sprint start and end dates public, and they’re working on implementing that policy.

The tool has automated over 80% of all recruitment and hiring processes.  CodeBright addressed problems promptly and enthusiastically. They continually improved their process and delivered exceptional results. 

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder of an HR and recruiting consultancy.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire CodeBright?

We hired them for bot creation, training, big data (machine learning, deep learning), and some IoT work. 

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to save on long-term costs by automating tedious business processes.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I had worked with them previously and reached out to them when I started this business. I knew they were sharp!

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

This was a sizeable project! The virtual assistant they built receives a job description, visits multiple job listing sites, scans resumes, and reaches out to the most fitting candidates through email, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Then it holds pre-screening interviews with potential candidates by asking questions we write.

It can hold a few thousand conversations at the same time, which is mind-boggling! After interviewing everyone, the bot gives us its Top 5, Top 10, and Top 20 lists. Once we select the interview candidates, it contacts them for the next round of interviews.

What was the team composition?

I mostly worked with the project manager, so I'm not certain of the team composition.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The system automated over 80% of our recruitment processes.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We used Jira as a project management tool, which worked well!

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They never told me that something was impossible, and they always figured it out. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

They had some growing pains, but nothing major.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the founder and CEO of My Bag Check, Inc. We’re a technology company that provides on-demand luggage pickup, storage, and delivery.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire CodeBright?

I was looking for someone to develop a market-ready version of my platform quickly.

What were your goals for this project?

I was trying to validate my startup idea and see whether there was a need for it in the market. I also wanted to build a profitable company and dominate a particular market segment.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I considered a few other software development companies, but I selected CodeBright because my point of contact saw my vision. The cost was another big factor.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

CodeBright took my vision and completed all necessary requirement gathering, including wireframe and prototype generation, and produced a mobile app, a web app, and an admin panel. They created a UX/UI design and handled front- and backend development, quality assurance, and publishing the app to the App Store.

What was the team composition?

I only ever worked with a single project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Soon after the initial version of the app launched and apparent bugs were resolved, revenue started to come in. We were featured in TechCrunch after a few months of steady revenue growth, and saw a tenfold increase in users, seemingly overnight. Now, my user base continues to grow and we’ve formed strategic partnerships that will help us become a leader in our segment of the transportation industry.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

I always knew what was going on, milestones were completed on time, and if anything came up, the team addressed it in a timely manner. If something didn’t go according to plan, that was to communicated to me on Trello, which proved to be highly effective. I only communicate with a single project manager, who takes care of everything.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their team made my success a priority. They were available to resolve issues quickly, even after production finished, and avoid outages.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

There is almost always an appropriate level of communication, but it’s something they should continue to work on.

The app is successfully launched in the App Store and garners positive feedback from users, all thanks to CodeBright’s involvement and commitment to quality. The work was streamlined thanks to their single point of contact and the discovery process at the beginning of the collaboration.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the CEO and a co-founder of Discoverlist, an IT startup based in New York City. Our current product is an awesome mobile app that allows users to share travel tips with friends.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire CodeBright?

We wanted to launch our startup at a reasonable price and timeframe and turn our dream into reality.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We had some phone calls and then met once. We knew that CodeBright was the company that would help us bring our idea to life and make it successful.

Describe the project in detail.

We had designs and wireframes before we approached CodeBright. They took that and turned our vision into reality by developing a mobile app from scratch, which includes an admin dashboard. Their work included backend and frontend development, server and admin console setup, app publishing, and more. They also provided a QA period, which we really appreciated. Furthermore, they helped us do two rounds of beta testing before we launched to the App Store. It was not a small project!

What was the team composition?

We always had a direct point of contact. Besides the project manager, there were two developers assigned to both the frontend and backend, plus the QA specialist.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our main goal for this stage has been achieved. We now have a real product that our clients can use, and they love it!

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We had a single point of contact—our project manager— and we communicated mostly via email or text. Trello is a game changer for tracking progress, opening new tickets for bug fix requests, etc.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The discovery process before we started the actual development was extremely helpful, especially since this was our first software development project and we had a lot of questions. The project manager guided us through the process, taking the time to understand exactly what we were building and giving us valuable suggestions. We also appreciated that even though we had many roadblocks during the process, their team pulled through and kept their promises to us. They are hard workers with an impressive work ethic.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Completing the work before the deadline is something CodeBright should continue to work on.

The web app BrightCode created significantly increases productivity and efficiency. The team's ability to quickly learn complex debt-collection systems is impressive. They're innovative, consistently improving their technological solutions to simplify dense processes.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the general manager of a debt collection firm based in NYC.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire CodeBright?

We hired CodeBright to design a custom web-based software.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted our process to become more effective/efficient, reduce costs and manual work, and increase volume and profitability.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We talked with a few vendors before hiring CodeBright. The representative from CodeBright actually came to our office in NYC and spent the time to learn exactly what we needed. They made great suggestions, and we were confident that they could deliver. 

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

They conducted an extensive discovery phase to understand our requirements before starting the actual development. Their team developed blueprint/scope of work documents, flowcharts, and wireframes. After we approved of their plans, they designed, developed, ensured quality assurance, and helped launch the software. Currently, they oversee any post-production errors and maintenance. 

What was the team composition?

Their project manager is my single point of contact. I know they have 4–5 developers working on our project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We've been using the web app for our practice for over six months now. It has helped to make the complicated debt collection process a lot easier. Now, everyone on the team stays updated the status of each case and what the next steps are. The app also makes paperwork a breeze. Instead of printing out numerous forms and filling them out by hand, the app prints the form from a template and fills in all the necessary fields required by the case file. Due to the increased productivity/efficiency/automation, we can position ourselves to significantly increase the volume of cases we can work on—expanding the business. We're extremely happy with their work thus far.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We use Trello to track progress and report bugs/corrections. We communicate a lot with their project manager via instant chat, phone calls, and Zoom screen sharing meetings. They always keep us in the loop to what's going on. They deliver what they promise—always on time and within our budget.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team's ability to quickly learn our business/industry impresses us. After a few weeks, they had a pretty decent understanding of how the debt collection process works. They were almost able to speak our language. The team always recommend great suggestions and come up with different ways to improve/automate/simplify the complex debt collection process using technology.
