Feedback summary: 

Codete Software House performed very well for the client. The site’s load times decreased by 60 percent and the traffic has nearly doubled. The client praises the quality of the agency’s team and highly recommends them to others.

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

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company.

Our business is helping students find language courses abroad. We have the largest database of language schools in the world. We are like an online travel agency for language study programs abroad.

What are your role and responsibilities?

I’m one of the co-founders.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal in working with Codete Software House?

We were looking to improve both the quality and speed of our website development at an acceptable cost. We had worked before with an in-house team, and we wanted to see if working with Codete would be a better fit for us.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

Our website, plus a CRM [customer relationship management] system that our staff uses, and a content management system that the schools use, were all taken over by Codete. They do all of the development for these three systems. It’s a PHP MySQL setup using a framework called Symphony, and they have taken on the entire development.

What was your process for selecting Codete Software House with which to work?

They actually found us. They contacted us at just the right time, because our internal team was moving too slowly. We didn’t conduct any kind of comparison with other vendors; we just gave them a two-week test project. Their productivity per team member was about three times that of our internal team, so we decided to go with them.

Can you provide a ballpark dollar figure for the size of the work that they’ve done for you?

Last year, we paid Codete around $200,000.

When did you start working with them, and is the relationship ongoing?

The relationship began in April 2013 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Do you have any statistics, metrics, or general feedback from the project?

Their performance is excellent – really fantastic. We also started working with them to provide system administration help, but that didn’t work all that well because that’s not one of their core competencies. It’s been better recently since they hired a new system administrator but, for some time, it wasn’t that great.

We’ve done a lot of functional changes to the site, so a lot of functionality that wasn’t available before is now available because of Codete. We also worked to a certain degree on performance, where we cut down the load time on pages by 60 percent or so. We continue to do more with them in this area. Since we started working with them, our traffic has roughly doubled. We get a lot of unpaid search traffic, and that’s definitely something they’ve helped us with.

Is there anything unique about Codete Software House that really makes them stand out compared to other companies?

The quality of the people that they put on our project was really good, which leads to good communication, high productivity and high output. They’re very flexible in arranging the process so it works for us. We moved from a haphazard to a much more systematic process as a result of their work.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or something that you might do differently?

The system administration area is not really their area of expertise, and we had some issues there. But, to be fair, they never sold us on that as being one of their core competencies. The cost is increasing in that area as well, but we still feel we’re getting good value for our money.

What advice would you give a future client of theirs?

I think it’s really ideal if you can do a test project with them, because then you can see if Codete will work for you or not. If you plan on working with them long term, it’s good to actually visit them and get to know their people. Also, work with them on continuously improving the development process.

Feedback summary: 

Codete provides great development resources at good prices. The team could have better project management and sometimes needs guidance, but overall the company is recommended for work speed and price.

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

BACKGROUND

I work for a high-tech company in Europe that produces customized e-commerce software solutions. I am the vice president here, and I manage the work with Codete.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

We have a development team here in Switzerland, but we wanted to augment our team with some offshore resources. We want to work on the core product continually to improve the UX/UI [user experience/user interface].

SOLUTION

We found Codete through a recommendation from one of our colleagues. We knew a member of their team. We decided to work with them a couple of years ago to provide offshore developers for the UX/UI on our core product.

They provide developers, but we manage the project. The project is ongoing, and we have spent more than $250,000 on their services the past three years. They have also worked on smaller projects in the past but, mainly, it's UX/UI work.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Codete is not perfect, and we have had some issues with them. However, the good outweighs the bad, so we have stuck with them and are happy overall. They provide good development resources with very strong costs.

They are no perfect, of course. They make mistakes like everyone else, and we must focus on project management. That is probably their weakness because we must manage their resources more than our local team. We are very pleased with their cost and speed of delivery.

I would recommend this company to others, but make sure you plan out the project in advance very well. If you lose track of Codete's work, problems can arise. I would recommend this company though.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Codete has a core team that is communicative and dedicated. They have developed over 25 sites, manage the time difference well, and facilitate an environment that allows for remote development. 

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

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company.

We develop websites for art galleries, and [our product] is an online inventory management system.

What is your role and responsibilities?

I’m the IT [information technology] director.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal for working with Codete Software House?

We’ve been with them for a few years, and they help us develop custom sites. They’ve helped us with a larger project, which is kind of a template system. [For] sites that are more generic and template based, we built systems to be able to spin those up quickly without really involving developers, which was a large project that they were responsible for. 

They’ve done a great job on developing that large and complex system, so much so that we’re now transitioning our other product to their team as well. They’re going to be responsible for the integration of rewriting that system and building it into our new collage platform.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

We leverage our own designers, and we do our own infrastructure work. So, primarily, what we use them for is back-end development, front-end development, and QA [quality assurance] testing.

What was your process for selecting Codete Software House with which to work?

I found them through an online job posting. I can’t recall which posting they responded to, but it may have been the one on Stack Overflow.

Can you provide a ballpark dollar figure for the size of the work that they’ve done for you?

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

How long have you been working with them, and is the relationship ongoing?

The relationship started nearly three years ago, and it’s an ongoing, open-ended arrangement.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Do you have any statistics, metrics, or general feedback from the project?

We’re very satisfied with their performance. They’re very responsive toward us. We have had some developers come and go, and they have a lot of young people and new hires, so it doesn’t always work out. We have a core group there who are dedicated to helping us with our problems. If someone doesn’t work out, they’re quick to fix it and find a replacement. They’ve done it very well, and we’ve been quite pleased to work with them.

On the custom website side, they probably developed about 25 custom websites. Our larger template system, which they helped us build, now hosts 75 sites.

Is there anything unique about them that really makes them stand out, compared to other companies?

The responsiveness is good. I had the chance to meet them in person, and they’re just a nice group of people. The time difference can be a concern, but they manage it well. They seem to have shifted their hours to coincide with ours, and that’s a big help. Most importantly, when something pops up at any time, there is someone there to respond to us and help us get it resolved.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or something that you might do differently?

Nothing really comes to mind. I think they do a good job, and we love working with them.

What advice would you give a future client of theirs?

Make sure your environment easily allows for remote development as many traditional networks aren’t set up to accommodate this easily. It could be an investment to get a system set up to allow remote development. That took some work on our end.
