Feedback summary: 

An independent work style, coupled with robust technical expertise, empowered Codibly to deliver industry-recognized quality on time. Codibly’s resources were also easy to reach and provided consistent communication. Customers can expect a flexible, dedicated partner.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-founder of Realytics, a TV analytics company. We measure the impact of TV advertising spots on audience engagement with digital channels like websites and mobile apps. I lead our frontend technical team.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Codibly?

We needed resources with expertise in particular technologies to help develop a web portal for our customers. The engineers we recruited didn’t fit our profile, so we engaged with Codibly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We were using advanced frameworks like React.js, TypeScript, and Redux, and resources with those skillsets aren’t easily available in France. Codibly found people who were competent in these technologies and could work within an agile methodology. Because we’re a startup, we needed reactive people who could implement changes quickly and interact with our product team on a daily basis.

What is the team composition?

We originally recruited two people from Codibly and then hired a third when we had the necessary funds. One of the team members left in 2017, so Codibly found someone to replace them.

How did you come to work with Codibly?

Our CEOs have a mutual friend who recommended that we contact them. After looking at domestic and international competitors, we decided that Codibly fit our needs best. They balanced language skills, an international profile, technology skills, and an affordable price.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent at least $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from 2016 until 2018, when we finished the web portal.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They achieved almost every task we set them. Anecdotally, they made a fix in our TypeScript code, an open-source, publically visible framework. The framework reviewer included this fix in the next release of TypeScript, which means that the community recognized the value of their work.

How did Codibly perform from a project management standpoint?

We had video conferences every 10 days to discuss and set up their next tasks and we communicated all day long on Slack. Despite their team being in Poland, they have strong English skills and were easy to communicate with. Their commitment to finishing the project to our satisfaction made them feel like part of our official team. Turnover was almost non-existent.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their strongest attributes are their tech-savviness and ability to work autonomously. Additionally, they adapt quickly to both new environments and remote work systems.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could’ve arranged for some people to visit us in France, although one of their members did come to our office for a presentation. Otherwise, Codibly is good. My recommendation for them is to stay like they are.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The quality and reliability of the portal are high and the turnaround time was very fast. Codibly provided solutions to any issues that arose. They were communicative and quick to respond, and their ability to work within a very tight time frame saved the project.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work for an insurance services firm. I manage projects and portal development for our online system.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Codibly?

We had a product under development with another supplier. The day before we were due to go live, that supplier emailed and told us that they couldn’t deliver the portal for another month. We had to find a team who could finish the project faster than that.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We sent them the wireframes we already had. They did a marvelous job working through what already existed and finding solutions in a short time frame. This was our first portal product where individuals can go directly to the website and buy an insurance policy. It’s geared toward a specific market of students who will study in Ireland and need a medical cover as one of their visa requirements. There is a lot of nuance involved, and students can be refunded their course fees in certain scenarios.

What is the team composition?

We have two main contacts that acted as project managers. There was a team of developers that attended our videoconference sessions, but I’m not sure of the exact size of the team.

How did you come to work with Codibly?

An advisor on contract with us knew of them from his time in Poland and recommended them.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about 18,000 € (approximately $20,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We contacted them at the end of September 2018. The project was completed in two weeks and they gave us exactly what we needed. We’re planning a second phase to fine tune everything in the future.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have been held up with compliance issues in Ireland, but that's outside of our control.

The quality is extremely high and the turnaround was very fast. If we had any issues, Codibly provided a solution. They’re exactly the kind of project team I needed, and the functionality and reliability of the portal is solid.

How did Codibly perform from a project management standpoint?

Their communication and responsiveness are excellent. We used email and phone, including some project calls. Although they could all speak English, there was a little bit of a language barrier on the phone. That may have been due to the call quality, since email was always good.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They responded much faster than the other company that started the portal. I’m looking into working with them on other projects, and I assume we’ll have a more structured approach without the panic of the last project.

Are there any areas they could improve?

On conference calls, we had a little difficulty understanding what was being said, especially when there were so many of us in the room. In hindsight, it would have been helpful to have face to face meetings. We plan to do that in phase two.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Go through the project from beginning to end to let them know your needs. What they did for us was very good, especially under the circumstances.

Feedback summary: 

The modernized platform can now serve thousands of users. Codibly’s team has improved their accuracy and delivers their work mostly on time. They make quick fixes and learn from previous challenges. Customers can expect to work with a responsive and experienced team.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder and CEO of WorkBuzz. We help companies get regular insights about their employees by using algorithms that pinpoint where companies should leverage their best talent.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Codibly?

We outgrew our original software agency and wanted a partner to build an improved platform. We wanted to build surveys with more flexibility to offer clients real-time feedback.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The solution is web-based and does surveys through mobile and tablet devices. Codibly reviewed and optimized our code, and then moved the platform to Amazon Web Services (AWS) to optimize scalability and reliability.

We had completed a round of external funding, which enabled us to design a platform that aligned with the experience we wanted to launch. Codibly then collaborated on wireframing and documenting user stories.

In three stages, Codibly developed the platform with Python and a React backend. First, they built a new, flexible survey tool that enabled us to choose questions for specific user types and provide automated response levels in a white label form. Next, they joined the app to our new dashboard through an API. Clients can get instant feedback and visualized results. Currently, the team is working on a self-service module. Clients can deploy services and make changes 365 days a year. We expect them to complete development by Christmas 2018.

What is the team composition?

As of last August, the project includes a project manager, a QA resource, and a team of at least four full-time developers.

How did you come to work with Codibly?

I spoke to my mentor about challenges with a previous vendor and he helped me conduct a new search. We shortlisted about a dozen agencies and met with three of them. Codibly’s competencies and culture made them a good fit.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $400,000. Our monthly spend is between £15,000–£20,000 ($20,000–$26,000). We expect to have spent $450,000 by the end of this year.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began work in 2016 and the project is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The move to AWS created instant improvements. We wanted the ability to handle clients with 100,000 employees and give personalized dashboards to 4,000 managers. We have now met our capacity and load time goals. Features load within half a second and PowerPoint reports generate within a few seconds.

How did Codibly perform from a project management standpoint?

Codibly uses Jira to get through 140-150 story points for each bi-weekly sprint. The initial story points had considerable variance, but as the team gained experience with the platform, their estimations increased in accuracy. We have a release every month or so. We have sprint reviews and conference calls in order to go through the progress. If there’s an issue, we’ll have a call regarding it. They’re pretty on top of it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Codibly is the ideal size for us, as we didn’t want to be their biggest client, but also didn’t want to work with an agency that required spending tens of millions of dollars each year. They’ve been invested in expanding their team since we started working together. We’re the right size for each other, and they have a strong team in place—from project management to QA and development. Codibly knows what they’re doing and mostly deliver on time. We haven’t had any big surprises.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There have been minor issues. They had turnover with teammates and project managers, but we also experienced that as well. But overall, we’re pretty pleased with how the relationship is going. They’ve solved problems quickly and learned from them.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

No, we’ve had a positive experience.

Feedback summary: 

Codibly has delivered several successful projects over the past year of partnership. Staying within the budget, they promptly deliver results that clients praise. Based on metrics, the team has met all the target KPIs. They excel at receiving and applying feedback with a positive attitude.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm a partner at a global management consulting and innovation firm. We work in Europe, the US, and Asia. I specifically focused on the healthcare sector. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Codibly?

We've worked with Codibly on multiple projects. Primarily, they provide services in the development area. I also engage them for a maintenance and support arrangement for a digital platform we maintain for our clients. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Codibly supported a simulation development project using avatars. It involved some animation using WebGL. They now provide maintenance and support for a Microsoft Azure-based platform with a .NET framework in C#. It includes a CMS and a Tableau component. The team helps us manage the Microsoft part of the stack. 

What is the team composition? 

Over the last year, we've probably worked with a total of ten people from Codibly. We rotate resources in and out during phases in the project life cycle depending on need. On the high side, some individual projects used up to 3–4 teammates. We also have an engagement that involves just one person from their team. 

How did you come to work with Codibly?

We found Codibly through a prior relationship. One of my colleagues has acted as a mentor to their CEO and made the initial introduction. The primary reason we keep engaging them for subsequent projects is their high quality of work. They are very responsive, tend to take feedback very easily, and have a fairly flexible attitude around work and change. As an offshore firm, they are also quite competitive from an economic point of view. The time difference is not as significant as it's been with other vendors.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent between 50,000–$75,000 across multiple projects. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together about a year ago in August 2017. Our engagement is ongoing. We're still actively developing with Codibly.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

All our projects with Codibly have been successful. Overall, they've delivered very well. Regarding results, we've received solid client feedback about the work they've done. They complete projects on time, on schedule, and on budget. From a KPI and metrics perspective, they've been successful at meeting all our targets. 

How did Codibly perform from a project management standpoint?

We’ve been pleased with our communication throughout the engagement. They meet deadlines and keep us up to date on status. For larger projects, we typically use Jira to track issues. We've also used Slack to work in a more agile way. Creating lists of tasks for them to complete worked very well.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Codibly's main strength is incorporating our feedback. If we request a course correction or tell them something wasn't quite as expected, they react positively and quickly address our concerns.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not really. In general, they're doing quite good work for us. When I met with their CEO just a month ago, I suggested things to do differently. They’ve addressed them all since then. There's nothing new on that front in my opinion.

Feedback summary: 

The tool exhibits Codibly’s solid user design skills and will be shared with a wider audience going forward. Easy to work with and receptive to feedback, they managed a quick turnaround on short timelines across different time zones.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m an energy and utilities consultant with PA Consulting, a UK-based healthcare, life sciences, energy, and utilities consulting firm with a practice in the US. I focus on utility operations, specifically customer experience transformation within utilities.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Codibly?

We had done a customer experience study with several of our essential clients to assess where they were in terms of their customer experience transformation. Part of that study was a maturity continuum which we wanted to make available to more potential clients, particularly at a large, annual utility conference. We wanted to move the continuum onto a website to make it accessible and turn it into a portal for our offerings within the customer experience space.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We'd already done the survey via Excel so there was existing data that we wanted them to move onto a website. They built the site from scratch on both the frontend and backend to work on both Chrome and Internet Explorer. They also customized it for iPads.

We provided the original material and they helped with the UX design. They put the survey online, with filters and customized questions, and collected some demographic information. They also made the results available to me via downloadable Excel sheets from a separate site.

What is the team composition?

I communicated directly with three or four people. We had an account lead who had worked with us on several previous projects. A project manager coordinated the requirements. A graphic designer did the mockups of the user interface and helped us optimize the browser experience.

How did you come to work with Codibly?

They had done some work for us previously. They had built our reliability analyzer, which also takes in large amounts of data to help utilities assess what activities could help them improve their reliability indicators.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $10,000 with them for about five weeks of work.

What is the status of this engagement?

It was a pretty quick turnaround. We kicked off a little bit before the holidays with some overview requirements. Most of the work was completed in the month of January.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

None at this point in time. We didn't have as many people as we wanted to fill out the survey at the conference itself. We're looking at adjustments to make going forward so that it can be shared with a broader audience and publicized a little bit more.

I think they did a really good job with the user design. They followed branding guidelines that we provided and were able to turn something around within a couple of days for us to look at. Our internal design team weighed in as well.

How did Codibly perform from a project management standpoint?

I had a few phone calls with the project lead at the beginning and we communicated mostly via a group channel in Slack. I touched base with them every morning. We had phone calls as necessary if anything needed to be explained. They worked well with the time zones given that I'm in New York and they were in Poland.

They're easy to work with. They were receptive to any feedback that was provided. They managed the project so that we could give feedback on parts that were finished early. Given the short timeframe, I think they did a really good job turning it around to us.

What did you find most impressive about them?

This was my first time using a service provider like them so I don't have too many comparison points. I found them really helpful. Overall it was a positive experience.

Feedback summary: 

Detailed and well-organized, Codibly was consistently prepared for review meetings and provided a good value for their cost. Their deliverables are high-quality and consistently meet all requirements.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a global consultancy firm. I work in the energy and utilities practice as a senior consultant for long-term financial and strategic planning.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Codibly?

We developed a software model internally about 10 years ago. It wasn’t the right tool for us any longer and badly needed updating. We didn’t have the capability to revise and revamp it internally, and needed outside help.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The original model was written in Microsoft Access. We gave them all the existing code so they could modify it. They adopted the code, rewrote it in a couple different languages, and set it up as a cloud-based service. They helped us develop the algorithms and all the output and input screens for the tool and moved all the data to the cloud.

The final product is a portfolio optimization tool for power-generating assets for utility companies. It helps us project the long-term financial trajectories of hundreds of possible portfolios. It allows us to optimize cost or reliability around a given set of metrics.

What is the team composition?

There are about four project members. We spoke with a business development salesperson at the beginning of the project. We had a project manager and two people work on coding for the project itself.

How did you come to work with Codibly?

We’ve worked with them on a number of projects over the past few years. Internal recommendations encouraged us to talk with them when this project came up.

How much have you invested with them?

I believe we’ve invested in the area of $25,000–$40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working on the project in August 2017 and hoped to finish in February 2018. We added a few requests to the scope, so we’re not quite done yet.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re still in the testing phase, but the quality of their work is high. The product itself is exactly what we wanted and the beta version works well.

How did Codibly perform from a project management standpoint?

They haven’t missed any review meetings. We have weekly calls to go over progress and they’re always prepared for them. We typically have review sessions over Slack. We do our audio calls and screen sharing on that platform.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re very detailed and organized. They also offer a lower cost than developers in the States. That’s a key attribute they can leverage.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We haven’t asked them to improve the aesthetics, but it might be possible to improve the look and feel of the model.

The team improved the speed of the platform, which has resulted in positive feedback from end users. Codibly’s team is competent and collaborates well with internal resources. Although there are some communication issues, Codibly’s pricing and project management are impressive.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a management consulting firm specializing in U.S. technology. We operate in defense, healthcare, life sciences, and energy. I work in the energy practice, where we deliver a range of consulting and analytic services to our clients. These are mostly distribution, generation, and transmission companies.  

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Codibly?

We wanted to scale up our offerings for e-clients, allowing them to onboard clients with minimum effort. It usually takes a while to onboard new clients onto the service. We were thinking of a solution that would automate the process and transform data into an application without the usual consulting delays.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We think of Codibly as our software development resource, and I tell them the things we want to automate. The platform is used to onboard new clients. There is also a regular update of the data. We also wanted to streamline the more complex functionalities such as onboarding, uploading of data, and delivery of the application. Essentially, we’ve tried to put a black box around the service so that we could deploy it on any infrastructure.

Codibly scaled up the software, making it easy to deploy and add new features and customers. We’ve worked together with Codibly to come up with a new way to package the service. It would be deployed on a host, such as Amazon, so that clients can access it.

What is the team dynamic?

I work with 3–4 developers, a project manager, and the CEO, Bart.

How did you come to work with Codibly?

I’ve been looking for skilled web developers for a long time. It’s hard to find competent, quality resources who know multiple languages and environments. Fortunately, Codibly fit that bill for us. I found them through my network and met the CEO in New York a couple of years ago. We hired them because of their price and capability.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in February 2017, and the relationship is ongoing. We’re currently working on our third project with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’ve enhanced the feasibility and speed of the customer onboarding process. Our service does what we need, and our clients are happy with it. I wanted the relationship to be seamless, and Codibly has done a great job of that. My clients don’t know Codibly is involved.

How did Codibly perform from a project management standpoint?

We’ve stayed within our budget. Our timelines often change, but this hasn’t been a time-based project. It’s a client-based environment, so I don’t need things done right away. Our teams are flexible with each other, which helps make things work. It’s a collaborative and cooperative environment.

We make sure we have a written agreement that defines the scope. I like the way they define what they’re going to deliver and break that down into a series of tasks. We’ve also agreed on payment and the milestones.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We’re impressed with Codibly’s price and the quality of their work — they’re highly competent and smart.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Communication is sometimes difficult because of different cultures. Improving their communication methods would be good. For example, using a solution that isn’t so full of echoes would be great.

Feedback summary: 

Drawing from similar project experience let Codibly achieve desired outcomes at an accelerated pace and without sacrificing quality. Clear and consistent communication is another noteworthy strength. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a software as a service company that provides business transformation enterprise architecture portfolio management software. I am the operations manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Codibly?

We needed to find someone that offers services for web development and graphic art. The other area was in frontend analysis dashboards. We needed to be able to pull data into a dashboard, display it in a pleasing format, and have it entirely web-based.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’re a pretty well-formalized process. They assign a client manager that is responsible for short stand-up briefings or regularly occurring working sessions as well as requirements gathering. They really hold your hand to define the requirements so the project is in a format they can understand. Then, you’re at the next stage of the development cycle wherein you can interface with developers. You do this using a requirements management system, which allows you to see and track progress, answer questions, and walk the project through key milestones. There is a process inside of that which deals with the development of features and then there's a review, user acceptance testing, and deployment. 

What are some examples of critical features or functionalities?

In our business environment, we deal with a lot of data inputs, and within those, the main areas are enterprise architecture, strategic planning, and portfolio management. Our software is good at getting the data into a repository, but we needed a company like Codibly to create the dashboards for data reporting. Their key specialty was designing the frontend web interfaces, then lighting up the dashboards with graphic data like pie and bar charts.

How did you come to work with Codibly?

There were some business contacts that pointed us in their direction. We began some discussions and looked at their portfolio. Because quality was important to us, we did look around at other shops to get an idea of their portfolios and estimates, but Codibly came back with a good representation of other related client work, so we chose them.  We started off small and built up to larger projects with them.

How much have you invested with Codibly?

We’ve spent around $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in September 2015, and the relationship is ongoing. There are times when we have a lot of work for them, and then there are times that there isn’t as much work.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

They do a great job when you submit work. They’ll take the time to provide an estimate to complete the task. That estimate goes into the system, and usually, the regularly occurring meetings that we have will track how far off they are from that estimate and how close they are to achievement. We do get some reports at the end of these that highlight estimates and what is already completed, and then we try to bring that difference together. They’ve done a great job estimating how long it will take to complete a task.

Codibly has been well niched in terms of quality, especially when it comes to frontend interfaces for data reporting. So far, their quality’s been great, and the responsiveness and collaboration have been outstanding.

How did Codibly perform from a project management standpoint?

We were assigned one project manager and that individual has been really good. They are the glue that binds all of us together. He has really been the client-service interface with Codibly for us. We communicate through Slack, where we have instant messaging and calls. We use JIRA for tracking task management, which also permits comments and the exchange of messages. We use Skype and GoToMeeting for online conferencing as well.

What did you find most impressive about Codibly?

Their portfolio of experience within the niche that we were looking for was what made the difference. They had some experience doing some financial dashboarding which had a similar look and feel we were trying to achieve. Their portfolio coupled with the great collaboration and communication is what really made them stand out.

Are there any areas Codibly could improve?

When we started off, some of these communication tools weren’t in place, but that has since been worked on. We now have full communication through those channels I mentioned. Nothing comes to mind that really stands out on improvement because communication is great. We don’t go too far without talking or meeting, so that helps tremendously on keeping any risks down and unexpected things happening.

Feedback summary: 

Codibly provides a collaborative and productive environment in which their resources can work. They don’t need micromanagement, and they value building relationships. They integrate seamlessly into internal teams and produce high-quality work. Overall, they’re attentive and responsive.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are an online retailer. I am co-founder and CTO of the business.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Codibly?

I was looking for a full-stack developer who could handle the frontend and backend of our platform, and who could work independently. Remote relationships cannot be micromanaged. Also, rather than having a company which would supply an account manager as a single point of contact, I was looking for resources which I could integrate in our own IT team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provide a positive and inclusive environment in which resources can work with each other and share questions. Codibly was tasked with identifying and sourcing our developers, setting up online interviews so that we could talk to specific persons before hiring them. The person we hired was integrated into Codibly’s team, but he worked exclusively for my projects.

Our website is a bespoke e-commerce platform which doesn’t rely on solutions like Magento. It has a multifold purpose, including acting like a standard online catalog for our beauty products. It has features like promotional vouchers, a shopping cart, a checkout section, payments, and order-management. We also have specific business use cases, beyond the e-commerce backbone. We manage a network of at-home sellers which go to clients’ homes in order to demonstrate our products and sell them in an offline environment. A part of the platform consists of sales management modules for events. We have a CRM integration in order to provide communication tools between sellers and their own customers.

The platform is being maintained by two developers: one of them sourced by Codibly, and an internal employee of our business. They need to know the platform inside-out, from a functionality, technical and database standpoint.

How did you come to work with Codibly?

I found Codibly through LinkedIn, they sent a message. I usually ignore such messages, but I picked this one up for some reason. The company seemed attractive to me, and I went to check out their website. I talked to Codibly’s CEO and co-founder and liked the fact that they were a small company at the time. I would only be a small account myself, using one developer, but I would receive the kind of attention I needed from such a partner. This did indeed happen, and I saw a willingness to build a relationship from Codibly’s side. They’ve become a partner in our business, not just an outsourced resource provider.

How much have you invested with Codibly?

The cost of their work has been between $60,000 and $70,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Codibly around two years ago, in January 2016. We have an ongoing collaboration.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Having the developer from Codibly’s side onboard has been very helpful. He has been able to pick up everything he was asked to do and is definitely a highly-qualified engineer. I am very satisfied with what he’s done so far.

Because he’s completely integrated into our team, he has been following our own processes. I haven’t received bug reports from Codibly’s side specifically; it’s more a part of the overall process. We have seen bugs as part of the job, but there was nothing different from any other developer.

How did Codibly perform from a project management standpoint?

We work on a retainer basis. The setup is such that there is no fixed budget. Financially, we’ve been able to agree on a monthly and daily fee, and this has worked well for us.

There is no project management involved from Codibly’s side. We typically communicate through Skype. They’re very quick to respond to new requests and provide a very good environment for developers.

What did you find most impressive about Codibly?

I have been working with the same developer, and haven’t felt the need to switch them, which is quite important. Developers do require a lot of knowledge in order to work on specific projects, and we don’t want to lose this every other month. Codibly’s environment works well for developers, and therefore for clients.

Are there any areas Codibly could improve?

Not really. The collaboration has been working well.

Feedback summary: 

Thanks to Codibly’s detailed understanding of the technical requirements, the finished product has shown reliable functionality. The team’s scalability, competitive price point, and responsive communication cultivated an efficient partnership.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of KiWi Power, a company that develops grid electricity with an inexpensive green technology called Demand Response.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Codibly?

We were trying to build our backend and frontend software. We tried to hire some people in the UK and struggled, so we decided to build it remotely.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Codibly had a team leader who was also responsible for recruiting the local team. We split the members into a few different departments, including frontend, backend, and projects. We needed a database and a system to operate that database for our customers. We collect a lot of data, and we needed the database to be useful. Codibly also created a billing and reporting section as well as customer software for viewing energy data. They used PHP, MySQL, MongoDB, Java, and Linode with Linux servers.

How did you come to work with Codibly?

I found them through a connection at business school. I was interviewing other people but they stuck out because they had lower prices than anyone else in London. They also could ramp up to the scale we needed.

How much have you invested with Codibly?

We spent at least $1,000,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in April of 2012, and they completed everything within the last 6–12 months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

We appreciated that they could develop functioning software quickly. They generally understood what we were trying to do.

How did Codibly perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re pretty good. When we were ramping up, it was difficult to juggle all the priorities. The project was delivered on time and within budget. We used email, Slack, and JIRA to communicate, and they were very responsive.

What did you find most impressive about Codibly?

I liked their collaboration. We didn’t shop around to find anyone else.

Are there any areas Codibly could improve?

Their performance depends on the projects they tackle, but I can’t think of anything in particular.
