Feedback summary: 

The team effectively demonstrated grace under pressure, delivering results that met requirements while taking a heavy workload off the shoulders of the internal staff. They were quick to embed themselves in the team structure, even taking part in managing the Scrum agile framework.

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 am the CTO at a digital wallet startup based in Argentina.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenges were you trying to address Darwoft?

We needed to add a developer to our team to take charge of managing the backend of our platform and mobile app. Darwoft was used for staff augmentation services.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The team used Google Cloud and Javascript to manage our backend system and mobile app.

What is the team composition?

We're currently working with one developer, but we had three resources augmenting our team at times.

How did you come to work with Darwoft?

In a past role, our team used staff augmentation services quite frequently. From that experience, Darwoft always provided the best results, resources, and problem management. That's why I contacted them when this project came up. 

How much have you invested in them?

We spent between $3,500–$4,000 USD each month.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from  August–April 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They really helped us deal with a very heavy workload, coming up to speed more quickly than we expected. The process and product always worked as desired with them on the team. When one of their team members left the company, they found a replacement quickly. It was a very good experience, and I'd definitely work with them in the future.


How did Darwoft perform from a project management standpoint?

As they worked in-house, I was in charge of project management myself. However, one of their developers was helping us with Scrum methodology. They proposed some very interesting metrics, and we ended up using a template provided by them.
 

What did you find most impressive about them?

When I first contacted them they were very quick at understanding our needs and the technical requirements of the project. Their understanding of our processes allowed us to place them on the right team right away.


Are there any areas they could improve?

One of the resources left midway through the project, which made us lose some time. It was solved quickly, but it was an issue at the time.

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 am the head of an IT development department at a tourism agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenges were you trying to address Darwoft Inc?

About 5 years ago the company used to outsource all IT projects, but after I joined, our goal was to develop the company’s core system. So we hired them to provide us with developers for this project. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had people working with Devops, architects, back end and front end developers, among others.

What is the team composition?

So far we have worked with 7 people.

How did you come to work with Darwoft Inc?

Some time ago I received an email from a technology cluster from Cordoba, they were announcing an event in Buenos Aires presenting all of these companies. They were there so we met up and when this project came up we decided to work with them. 

How much have you invested in them?

We spent an average of a million and a half Argentine pesos (approximately $22,200 USD) per month. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them about 2 years ago and are continuing to partner together.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

When we hired them I was looking for a greater quality of development and with them, I found developers with great skills, great readiness, very dedicated and savvy. Their company always makes sure their resources feel comfortable working in the projects they are assigned to. We see the results of that all the time in terms of efficiency, quality, and skills.

How did Darwoft Inc perform from a project management standpoint?

They work in our offices so we communicate directly with them, we use Microsoft team, Azure DevOps, and a Scrum methodology. I also meet up with the project manager once a month for any updates and feedback.

What did you find most impressive about them?

As a company, I would highlight how they have always met time and how they treat their resources. As for the developers, their skills and willingness to carry on with the projects are truly exceptional. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

I couldn’t say anything.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Remrise is an early stage e-commerce startup developing solutions for sleep. I lead engineering and product management.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Darwoft?

We needed to develop a gamification backend for our mobile app that has flexible and configurable business rules so that we can update goals and badges easily.

What were your goals for this project?

Develop a flexible and well written, well tested, well documented backend that works for our business and is well-maintainable for our engineers.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Someone we work with used to work at Darwoft and recommended them.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They built the backend per the above, and set up regular milestones and demo meetings every two weeks. They provided testing of the backend and integrated with myself and one of our engineers to ensure everything was smooth.

What was the team composition?

Project manager, engineering lead, engineers, QA engineer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We haven't launched the feature yet in our mobile app, but from our evaluation, the backend is well documented, deployed, configurable, and well tested. It's flexible enough to be consumed by our mobile app as well as our web front end.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Darwoft had a project manager as well as en engineering manager. The engineering manager explained their agile development process at the beginning. They arranged to meet with our engineer both remotely and in person regularly.

We had demo meetings every two weeks where they showed us demos, asked questions, and showed us the extend of their tests. They set up end to end deliverables that were done incrementally so we were well assured we were making good progress.

This was a fixed cost project, but when Darwoft was able to make do with fewer resources at the end, they charged us less, and communicated this to us in a very transparent way.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Darwoft provided the service at reasonable cost and were very communicative, asking questions whenever needed to ensure they delivered what our business needs.

They are concerned about making our business a success rather than check off boxes. They are a wonderful partner and we would love to work with them again.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None, everything went perfect!

Feedback summary: 

Using their offerings to complete several software and web development projects, the client has been impressed with their skills. They’ve been successful in building a trusting relationship through reliable communication and consistent transparency of their work processes.

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 one of the co-founders of a custom software house. We focus on development projects and web development for a variety of clients.  

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Darwoft?

Our biggest challenge was capacity at the time. We were looking for extra manpower to get projects done more quickly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Starting with one of their developers at first, they began working on projects alongside my team. At this point, we’ve collaborated on 3–4 web apps. They’ve done full-stack web development, using PHP, AngularJS, and MySQL.

What is the team composition?

There are now two developers that we work with.

How did you come to work with Darwoft?

We looked for outsourcing options online to reduce the cost of labor. I interviewed 4–5 companies and got along well with Darwoft. One of the biggest advantages was that we operate in similar time zones. There wasn’t a language barrier either. 

How much have you invested with them?

To this point, we’ve spent between $60,000–$80,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in October 2018 and continue to collaborate. Since this is a staff augmentation effort, we have them on an hourly contract that lasts through the end of the year.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’ve been very pleased with the developers they’ve provided us. The quality of work has been high, and they have specialized resources. We didn’t use the full range of their services—they offer project managers and analytics teams that we didn’t use. They offered those services up several times, though. Their developers are great, but they have a lot more to offer on top of that.

How did Darwoft perform from a project management standpoint?

They used Basecamp, which has been great. In addition to our communication on that platform, we have daily phone calls with their develops, serving as progress updates. Whenever there has been a deadline, they’ve worked hard to reach it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’ve done an all-around great job on our projects.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s always a couple of little things, but as a company, they’ve done a good job.

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 CEO of a hardware company that imports advanced security systems from China. They’re joint cameras with alarms and sensors. I’m in charge of choosing our products, speaking with suppliers, managing sales, and handling any necessary follow up.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Darwoft?

We wanted to develop an app specifically for the South American market. The platform needed a simple and clear UX design that would allow us to easily add new features.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They assisted us in building iOS and Android versions of a mobile application for our South American customers’ security systems. They continue to support our development, and they even connected us with another vendor to complete the backend build.

Once users link the app to the security hardware, they can stream audio and video content, control zoom settings and sensors, manage their memory card, send messages, add new cameras, and more. Basically, it acts as an overarching administrative system for all of the user’s security hardware.

What is the team composition?

We work with two developers.

How did you come to work with Darwoft?

One of my partners works in the software business, and he recommended them. I reached out and shared the details of our project. Their flexibility and communication skills solidified my decision to hire them.

How much have you invested with them?

So far, we’ve spent between $10,000–49,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in June 2018, and they’re providing ongoing support.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Overall, it was a positive experience. Before working with Darwoft, we were a bit restrained in terms of our capabilities, but with their I help, we were able to introduce new features to the market. They made us more independent and helped us achieve our goals. The app offers a wide variety of new functions. For example, the platform will send alerts if any of the cameras stop working. The additional elements give us a competitive edge in the market.

How did Darwoft perform from a project management standpoint?

They were very timely. We suggested that we use Slack and Pivotal Tracker to manage the project, and Darwoft adjusted their workflow to accommodate those platforms right away. They were receptive to feedback and really listened to our requests, so we worked very well together.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They offer a very personalized service, which is generally hard to find in bigger companies. They willingly adapted their approach to fit our needs and requirements. I was confident that we’d be happy with the final product because they paid such close attention to our requests. Additionally, I appreciated their level of professionalism.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of anything.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We run a large consumer-facing website that generates leads for business and straddles a B2B/B2C role. The niches we fill include home services and content publication. I’m the founder and CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Darwoft?

We hired them as an external development arm to supplement our team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The content on our site includes information about thousands of services providers. Darwoft helps with ongoing redesigns of our websites, various site updates, and the maintenance of its functionalities. They are responsible for software and backend development related to custom modules in JavaScript, PHP, and CSS3 for the Drupal platforms we use, and they recently moved our backend server from Rackspace to Pantheon.

What is the team composition?

They support us with two to three developers.

How did you come to work with Darwoft?

The developers we worked with previously were in the States, but they charged more than we felt comfortable spending. We decided to search for new development teams in Latin America, mostly because of the similarity in time zones. We initially contacted their sales team and spoke with one of their leaders fairly quickly. They impressed us with their presentation, so we decided to use one of their developers on a trial basis. There was a steep learning curve at first, but they worked extremely hard and we saw a lot of benefit in working with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We spend in the neighborhood of $10,000 a month.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our collaboration started around September 2016 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They help us with major redesign, and we’re still in the process of restructuring our backend server system. The work they’ve done already makes us look more professional, and we like the arrangement we have with them. If we discover a particularly challenging issue, they will call upon other members of their team and ultimately come up with solutions. We’re very pleased with the quality of their work.

How did Darwoft perform from a project management standpoint?

Trello was the most convenient project management tool for us, and communication is good. I work directly with the developer, which is easier than working through a project manager. The only occasional drawback occurs while they are focused on solving problems and creating new functionality. Though there are occasional gaps in their responsiveness, I find this arrangement much more practical than talking through a middleman.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The biggest key strength is their commitment and willingness to work hard to meet our goals. They work late into the night or early in the morning to solve any critical issues. Even though they’re working on contract, they are as involved as any member of our internal team and put forth every effort to get good end results.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There are occasional communication lapses, but that is to be expected from any vendor. They’re very good, and I don’t have anything I think they should change.

I work at a company dedicated to technology design and development—websites, web apps, etc. I’m the president, with a team of designers and coders, though we also outsource some projects.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Darwoft?

We have been working with them for some years now, outsourcing some of our development projects.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’ve worked on web and mobile application development. Various projects have used Drupal, WordPress, and PHP.

It depends on the project. For example, a WordPress project may involve two developers. It’s different according to the needs of the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Their engineers are very well versed in several technologies, which has helped us a lot in our projects. They’re great at adapting to different projects and are very flexible. Their commitment is important to us—they’ve never let us down during any of the projects; they’ve done everything to make them work.

How did Darwoft perform from a project management standpoint?

It’s improved over time. When we started, it was a little informal, but we’ve since started using project management tools. Though they weren’t very organized at the beginning of our collaboration, we’re now very comfortable.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Often with technology projects, plans are made but end up getting changed. That causes troubles with resources and budgets. However, Darwoft has always been able to adapt and help us find solutions. We solve problems together, which I find really valuable.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could still improve on their project management and communications skills.
