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.

Feedback summary: 

Darwoft helped the security brand introduce new features, giving them a competitive edge in the market. The team managed the project efficiently, communicating responsively and remaining flexible to accommodate needs. Their personalized service set the foundation for a lasting partnership.

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.

Feedback summary: 

Darwoft’s work contributes to a more professional brand image. The cohesion of their team ensures in-depth problem solving and a high quality of work, while direct communication with the developers streamlines the process.

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

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.

Feedback summary: 

The team is skilled, dedicated, and committed to producing excellent deliverables for all development projects. They could work on their communication and project management, though this has improved over time, and they are always able to find technical solutions as needed.

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 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.

What is the team composition?

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

How did you come to work with Darwoft?

They were recommended to us by a freelance developer we used to work with. We worked with them on one project, and as we got to know them better, we began to trust them with larger tasks.

How much have you invested in them?

We’ve been working with them for so long that it’s hard to remember. It’s around $15,000–$20,000 per year.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them 10 years ago and our collaboration is ongoing.

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.
