The Review
Feedback summary: 

CodeIT integrated seamlessly with the internal team, continuously improved their management processes, and promptly addressed any problems. Their technical proficiency and dedicated work ethic made them a valuable, reliable partner.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Zimit is a software company. We develop software for the professional services industry such as consulting companies and engineering firms. It’s specifically for forecasting, quoting, and scheduling with people. I’m one of the co-founders.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CodeIT?

We’re a software shop. We have a lot of development work. Cost is a big driver. We’re looking for quality offshore at a good price.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our application requires a full blow audit trail with every transaction that the system has. The team has developed a very simple UX on an iPad where you can point, click, and go back in time to see all these transactions live. It’s very effective from a UX perspective.

The technologies that we use are mainly Angular on the frontend and Node on the backend. We’re an Angular-Node shop.

What is the team dynamic?

They provide us with a team that we manage. They’re an integral part of our software development team. The number of projects is continuous. Every month there’s new modules and new functionality. They also provide support for our customers. They’re just part of the company. All the work is in Ukraine. The number of team members is by request. I give them ample time for what I need. I interview and select the people I need. We give ourselves time to select the best.

How did you come to work with CodeIT?

We looked at multiple countries and multiple companies and ended up with CodeIT after talking to about 20 firms. They were a personal reference. Another software startup, a friend of mine, was using them. That primarily pushed my decision. We had ticked all the boxes of good candidates and good resumes. We interviewed a bunch of other technical folks and their management. CodeIT met the criteria.

How much have you invested with them?

That amount is confidential.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in October 2016 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I rate all the team members, including the offshore team, on productivity, the amount of rework, and bugs. We’re all developers. We all come up with bugs. Some are more prone than others. So, we do track that. We don’t do it to reprimand, but to guide and ensure a better quality of code.

How did CodeIT perform from a project management standpoint?

We’re an international bunch with various languages. There is a slight language barrier, but their English is acceptable and improving over time. Time is not an issue. They practically work U.S. hours. We use video chat, Google Hangouts and Slack. The integration was straightforward. They’re humble guys and are hardworking. It’s been a very good experience.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The management team is very easy to work with. Whatever we need, they’re here. We’re in constant communication. They have very good resources, are humble, hard-working, have effective management, and are easy to work with. It makes less of a headache for me.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Anytime I saw an issue, they addressed it. There were communication issues, language issues, and written communication issues in the beginning, but they were addressed. The U.S. time zone was an issue early on and they addressed it, as well. These are generic offshore issues.

Do you have any advice for potential customers working with CodeIT?

Plan. If you just jump at them with your resource needs, I am not sure how they would respond. Maybe bigger firms have a bigger bench to respond. If you’re patient and you give them a horizon and you plan, you’re going to get a very good result. Just dropping, “I need ten people tomorrow,” that would be challenging.

Updated Review

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CodeIT?

We needed to develop a forecasting engine for our products.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The demand forecasting engine was built on top of our current platform, integrating it with our other products. We met with them for a week and went through requirements and what we wanted the process to look like. They did unit and integrated tests from the beginning, after we set our end goal.

What is the team composition?

They added a few resources to the original team, making themselves autonomous and only needing minimal oversight.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve had a few customers work out the rough edges and make the product more user-friendly. They asked for forecasting, and we delivered it in a short period. We even won an award for the product.

How did CodeIT perform from a project management standpoint?

They did project management, which included reporting and documentation. It was more structured this time, and they updated us daily. Their English has significantly improved.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re incredibly responsive and professional, making themselves available to me whenever I need them. I never have to wait to talk to their management team.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Use their project management capability. It made a world of difference.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Their refusal to do cookie-cutter solutions keeps them at the forefront of the industry. Their responsive communication skills, high value-for-money quotient, and speedy service make them a valuable partner.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Polyvance manufactures tools and materials that body shops use to repair plastic bumpers. I'm the owner.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CodeIT?

I had a small coding job I needed completed.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They initially did the small coding job for me, and now every time I need work done, I just ask them to do it. It's progressed to where they've probably done six or seven websites for us, from scratch.

As we're an e-commerce company, 95% of our products are sold through distribution, but we also sell directly through our website for the do-it-yourselfers. CodeIT did everything with our site. I just gave them a color scheme, and they took it from there. They used Prototype on the backend.

What is the team dynamic?

I deal with Sergey [Manager Operations, CodeIT], as he speaks English and then translates it to the rest of the team. They also have a designer and different specialists depending on what the needs are for the job at hand.

How did you come to work with CodeIT?

About 10 years ago, I requested a small, coding job on Elance. They bid on it and they did it quickly and affordably.

How much have you invested with them?

I've invested $60,000-$70,000 over the past 10 years.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2007 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

To be frank, it looks cool and I like it.

How did CodeIT perform from a project management standpoint?

They are very responsive in terms of contact, apparently working around U.S. hours. They’re always available on Skype, and there are no language barriers. Our project to-do list is shared on Google Drive, and I check the items off as they do them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’ve never thrown anything at them that they didn’t know how to do. Many companies use canned website packages, but when I need custom work done, they can do it and they do a good job.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I have no problems with them at all.

Do you have any advice or tips for other potential customers of CodeIT?

When people ask me who did my website, I tell them that it was CodeIT.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

CodeIT’s initial work effectively increased SIM card sales, kick-starting the overall business. They aren’t afraid of voicing their opinions on what is the best tech to use and have valuable ideas for doing things differently. Their controlled and structured approach to projects also stands out.

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 was the CTO of SST.Net, a small mobile operator.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CodeIT?

We needed a system for controlling the distribution of our SIM cards and other API-connected things. We needed a partner outside of Sweden, where having a couple of developers can be a bit costly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had a bunch of APIs from different systems and I was working out a strategy for different system delivery partners. Someone had to bring this out to users via an ordering system. If, say, we sold 50 SIM cards to a company, they needed to activate those, and we needed to automate the process.

CodeIT helped us develop a web ordering system connected to many other systems, mostly regarding the SIM card distribution and activation on the network for cellular traffic. The main technologies used were PHP and MySQL. We used other technologies and let CodeIT suggest appropriate ones for our challenges. We eventually landed on a Linux environment with open-source languages.

What is the team dynamic?

I’ve been in contact with at least 10 people in total. Our team was always made up of around five people for a medium-sized project, from project manager to technical lead, business analyst, and testers. We had daily communication and mostly used Skype. There was a rapid development curve for multiple ongoing projects, including the ordering system.

How did you come to work with CodeIT?

I’ve worked with different outsourcing companies in India, Russia, and Bulgaria. This was my third or fourth outsourcing project, so I reached out to a couple of different types of programming firms for help with these system challenges. I was specifically looking for a long-term partner to outsource programming tasks to.

CodeIT had an understanding of the meaning behind our projects, and their biggest plus was that they were not afraid of telling me what they thought was the best technology or of discussing possible changes.

Sometimes, I have a basic thought of how I want to do things, but I hired CodeIT because they came with a lot of ideas on how to do things differently and with valid arguments on why their ideas could be better. They know how to set their minds on a project’s end-goal, its vision, and business model as opposed to just delivering the programming in a text file.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost of the initial project was around $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The initial project was to get things going and it took six months—it was very quick development. We worked with CodeIT for another 3½ years, as long as I was there. I believe they still have some work with that company.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We started as a virtual operator with zero SIM cards sold, and when I left, a large number had been sold—we couldn’t have done it without CodeIT. We could’ve chosen another outsourcing partner, but our strategy always needed an ordering system; CodeIT came through and delivered it.

We started virtual operator phone subscriptions on the set date thanks to them, going from the idea of starting a virtual operator in Sweden in October 2012 to launching the first subscription in April 2013.

How did CodeIT perform from a project management standpoint?

CodeIT has a good outsourcing system that includes a project management, business analysis, and testing structures. If we want to run an outsourcing project in a controlled and structured way, they have everything set. They also have a wide range of offerings, but on the technologies they prefer, they are very skilled.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have deep knowledge in the technologies they work with and it always feels like we can always bring in someone from CodeIT who gets the whole picture. They also have very skilled people on the lead tech positions. One person, in particular, is a superstar in coding, while also thinking about security and workflows. Overall, it was a smooth trip.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They have some programmers who are not very fluent in English. However, this is very specific and compared to other countries around Europe, CodeIT isn’t bad. Sweden, Denmark, and Finland have a bit of an advantage around the English language, and it’s something I mentioned to CodeIT as an improvement. They could send their people to courses, but 80% of them are as fluent as I am.

There are also some laws in Ukraine which affect contracts. There were some things we didn’t understand, from a Swedish standpoint, but it was never a problem. There are different ideas on how to conduct business in terms of paperwork.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Be thorough in the early stages on how to set goals of the projects, as well as of the company as a whole, so that they can do their magic. CodeIT should also be allowed to be creative and not strictly ordered. They have business analysts and testers, so clients should use those as well.
