Feedback summary: 

The vendor continues to deliver stellar results. Code/+/Trust is a nimble, strategic team that values preparedness. When offering insight, the specialists keep internal stakeholders' best interests in mind. They're a seasoned team that clients can rely on.

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’m the co-founder and COO at Blinktbi, Inc. We’re FDA-approved for a device that puts a small puff of air in the corners of the eyes and then gives feedback. It uses high-speed cameras to watch for a blink reflex. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Code/+/Trust?

Our vendor prior to Code/+/Trust was very difficult to work with, and their end results were poorly delivered.

So, we had a system that was unusable. We also had a list of upgrades and changes we wanted to make to the system. We also needed to solve bugs from the prior software company.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We needed a backend portal to store, analyze, and backup data. It also needed a UI that would be easy to understand.

They quickly fixed the bugs to get our portal working. So, within a week, we opened the scope up to add some new updates. Now, their scope involves building an app. They’re delivering weekly, and their scope expands weekly. 

What is the team composition?

We’ve mostly worked with 2–3 of the founders because we knew them previously. I’ve worked with two coders, and we also have one contact who is a program manager.

How did you come to work with Code/+/Trust?

I’ve known the founders of Code/+/Trust for 10 years. (We’ve known each other from various aspects of business, startups, and friendships.) When they said they were starting the company, I asked if we could switch over to them from our prior vendor.

We were interested in hiring them because all of the founders have built and sold tech companies before. Also, they all started with small companies and could bring relevant expertise to our project. They'd worked with the same type of solution we needed. That’s something we couldn’t find in a large corporation. 

There are great coding companies out there. But, none of them had the background in growing a startup that we were looking for. For various reasons, we also needed to choose a team within the United States.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $50,000 on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in May of 2019, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We can’t find anybody else that can deliver the way they can for the price that they do. It’s an easy decision to continue working with them. 

They’ll give us a non-working mock-up, we’ll go through changes, and then the next time it comes around, it’s 95% exactly right.

I’m friends with two of the founders, and I know they are good people. I know that morally and ethically, they are going to do what’s right. They’re growing quickly, but they’ve assured me they don’t intend to sell the company, and they’re in it for the long-haul.

Over the number of companies I’ve started and sold, I’ve found that it’s worth waiting for that type of person. They may not be “over the top” or have the best office, but the results will come out amazing. You can trust them to do what they said they will. 

How did Code/+/Trust perform from a project management standpoint?

Their prices have been so reasonable because of their prior experience and proactivity. The founders know how to get to an endpoint with only the resources that are needed, no extras. 

Instead of simply leaving digital comments, we were able to collaborate with a point person on their team (a lot of times it’s a video conference). This is much more effective than explaining requirements through written paragraphs. 

A lot of times, the coder is sitting with them and makes changes before we even hang up the phone. Then, they’ll pull up the changes on our screen so we can see them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their biggest strength was looking ahead and planning for the future. 

They’re very quick and detail-oriented. They offer such a reasonable cost because they ensure they know exactly what we need beforehand.  We get results with one turnaround — I can’t think of a time when they missed what we were asking for. 

They ask questions ahead of time and invest effort in mocking up quick examples. This ensures we’re on the same page before they put weeks of work into the solution. This has been game-changing for us. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. They’re growing at an exponential rate, but that hasn’t affected our happiness with their work. They’re bringing in new coders, but they won’t bring in anyone who doesn’t fit perfectly. I know some of their other clients, and they’re happy as well. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Anyone that hires them is going to get a good engagement. Potential customers can go to them even if they don’t have all their requirements laid out. They’ll help you if you have an end goal, but are unsure how to get there.

For example, one time, we thought we wanted something that would have been $50,000 of work. After they understood what we wanted, they said, “You could do X, Y, and Z to save $40,000 and get the same results.”
