We create mobile and web apps for innovators

DashBouquet creates mobile and web apps for worldwide innovators. We focus on very few tools and use it right way. This helps us to meet requirements of the most demanding clients - software startups, enterprises and entrepreneurs.

Why us?

We don’t work with fixed price. Though sometimes it is hard to determine final budget and project terms, therefore we always know where we are.

We are small company and don’t have ability to fulfill all queries, therefore all members of our team are high quality professionals. Thus, we show high quality results.

We are not very fast in scaling but it stands for our high requirements for our engineers.

We are people and we make mistakes.

We prefer long-term relationship rather than quick contact, which means our clients stay with us for a long period of time. Our clients feel emotionally attached to us. You can’t stay indifferent.

Feedback summary: 

DashBouquet’s resource blended and collaborated with internal teams well. He is a hard worker whose contributions and augmentation seamlessly integrated with the internal development team. Despite a language barrier, DashBouquet’s resource was well-versed, helpful, and their whole team is welcoming.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a consultancy business and we make digital products for other people. I’m the founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DashBouquet?

We were working on a React Native mobile project for a client and we wanted somebody to help out with the development process.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

DashBouquet was white labeling their services to us. We needed someone who had experience in React Native. One of their guys, Alex, joined our team to help with the overall build of the project. They provided 1 resource rather than a full delivery team. The resource was working alongside one of our developers who was inexperienced with React Native. We just wanted someone there to support and help us learn. We wanted to know we were building in the right way and would be able to deliver within the timeline.

We had built the API, and our client wanted it cross-platform and on a budget, so React Native was a good fit. The guys at DashBouquet had done it before and it wasn’t a complex project. Doing a project economically is the most difficult thing, and we managed to include the core functionality and have a nice, well-confined MVP.

How did you come to work with DashBouquet?

I was introduced to them by another contact and did some background research myself. I checked out some of their other projects and spoke to their team. They seemed like a good fit.

How much have you invested with DashBouquet?

We spent $12,000 on the resource they provided.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in February 2017, and the project was completed in May 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The client is happy with what we did. She’s preparing for launch now, so there are no key metrics yet.

How did DashBouquet perform from a project management standpoint?

We did the whole project management piece. Alex was involved in the standups on a daily basis. In regards to the admin side, including invoicing, it was relatively seamless. Alex fell in line with our development practices well. His English isn’t great, so thankfully one of our guys speaks Russian. There was a bit of translation needed, but he’s a nice guy and he worked hard. The process was smooth to ramp him up on the team.

What did you find most impressive about DashBouquet?

They know what they’re talking about from a technical perspective. I went to meet them and they’re nice guys, very welcoming.

Are there any areas DashBouquet could improve?

We were fortunate to have a person in place to deal with the communication. It would have been a shock to us if we didn’t have someone who could speak Russian - we would have had a language barrier. I don’t remember if we had agreed on using a Russian speaking resource beforehand or not. I think if we didn’t have someone who could translate, they would’ve organized it at their end.

They helped us build our MVP [minimum viable product].

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’ve continued to develop and are progressing well, so we’re very thankful to them.

How did DashBouquet Development perform from a project management standpoint?

We had weekly calls. Overall, they produced a great web app from an aesthetic and functionality standpoint. With any MVP there are issues you need to sort out, but overall, they were good to work with. 

What did you find most impressive about DashBouquet Development?

They combine design and development seamlessly. They take control over it and made us feel at ease. It almost felt like it was one team dealing with both aspects. They did that well.

Feedback summary: 

The client has been pleased by the consistent quality across the Dashbouquet team. His one recommendation for them is to focus on bringing up junior level developers to add more depth to their roster.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Intellectsoft is an outsourced software developer. I was the director of the company's project management office in Minsk.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DashBouquet Development?

We needed frontend development resources.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

DashBouquet Development provided Node.js, ReactJS, JavaScript and HTML coding for our group. We typically used 3-4 full-time developers from DashBouquet Development, who worked with a project manager from our end.

How did you come to work with DashBouquet Development?

We used to have a list of vendor companies which we worked with depending on the type of work. DashBouquet Development was recommended by one of those companies. We conducted a series of interviews and decided to work together.

We chose DashBouquet Development because they were a professional company, had a good skill level for the required tech stack, and they had a front-end studio attitude, investing their own time for research into new technologies.

How much have you invested with DashBouquet Development?

Our contract with DashBouquet Development amounted to around $75,000. We mostly worked on a time-and-materials basis.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with DashBouquet Development in September 2015. I am no longer with the company, but they are still working with DashBouquet Development. My current company is also engaged with DashBouquet Development, based on my recommendation.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

DashBouquet Development provided developers who were equal to our in-house ones. Their general skill was at middle or senior level; we never had juniors from DashBouquet Development.

How did DashBouquet Development perform from a project management standpoint?

DashBouquet Development was good technology-wise, but they also coped well with tough timelines.

What did you find most impressive about DashBouquet Development?

DashBouquet Development was able to tackle the issues we presented, and delivered good-quality products in short periods of time. This was their main competitive advantage.

Are there any areas DashBouquet Development could improve?

DashBouquet Development needs to bring up junior developers to spread knowledge. Other than this, everything was good. Everyone who took part in our projects integrated well into the teams.

We do mobile and web development. I am the co-founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with dashBOUQUET Development?

My company focuses on mobile but, sometimes, clients want to have web work done. I outsource most of that web work to them. Also, if we were short on manpower for mobile development, they helped us there as well.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We focused on iOS mobile app development. We use Xcode, which is Apple's development environment.

We have spent $5,000 to $20,000 a year with them, depending on the year.

We started our relationship in 2014.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Most of their work was part of larger products. I never outsourced the whole project to them, so I don't have any metrics on their work.

How did dashBOUQUET Development perform from a project management standpoint?

We have mostly used JIRA for project management, and I've paid them through Upwork.

What did you find most impressive about dashBOUQUET Development?

I've been happy with their work, and that's why I've hired them multiple times.

Feedback summary: 

The client has seen DashBouquet become increasingly busy with other projects but continues to funnel projects their way because of the level of ownership and professionalism with which they work. He believes adding more project management capacity will improve turnaround times.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I have a web development firm. It’s called nSoft. It’s been around for about 11 years. I’m the CEO [Chief Executive Officer]. I’m also hands-on on all projects, as we’re a small company. I manage all projects on a one-product-at-a-time basis. I run teams that do most of the development.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DashBouquet?

Two years ago, we had a project of developing a web platform for a couple getting married to plan their wedding. I was looking for help with that because we were already full.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

It’s web development mostly. I’ve been working directly with their developers. Recently, they added a quality assurance resource on one of the projects. So for the web, it’s mainly HTML5, CSS, and Angular, but now we have switched to React with Node.js on the server side.

How did you come to work with DashBouquet?

They came up on Elance. We started working together from there.

How much have you invested with DashBouquet?

So far it would be around $100,000. It would be an average of $50,000 per year.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started in August or September 2014. It’s ongoing. We’ve done multiple projects with them. There may have been a couple of months where we haven’t had projects, but most of the time we did.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We had several projects that were completed. The clients were happy. We have a university in Israel that required a portal for managing their funding on research. They developed the full portal. The customer was very happy. It was a very custom project with custom graphics, which is really unordinary in the world of university projects. We got very good feedback from the customer and they got good feedback from their users. It was a very successful project.

Now we have a project for a big data startup that we’re building the dashboard for. Just last week they had a conference in New York City where they previewed our work in progress and they got very good feedback on that. They have clients the size of Netflix. That’s a good thing.

How did DashBouquet perform from a project management standpoint?

I work mainly with Anton [Shaleynikov, CEO] who is managing the project that we’ve been working on. It depends on the project. We either do a daily standup if it’s an Agile project, or we have status updates a couple of times a week. Otherwise, we’re constantly on chat - Skype or Slack. I get constant updates. We have constant communication throughout the day. The development resources are all remote. Anton is the project manager and I’m mostly in contact with him. Currently, I’m interacting directly with the developers on one project, but mostly it’s a project manager.

What did you find most impressive about DashBouquet?

I can say that I got a feeling of high professionalism, and even more important, very high credibility. I have been outsourcing work for years now to all around the world. The level of credibility I got from Anton and his willingness to take responsibility over the project and get it done even when over weekends was great. It’s always more work than expected. He always pushed through. I used to run a lot of in-house development and I can definitely say I get better results now working with DashBouquet than I had from in-house developers. It’s a different viewpoint. They take the viewpoint that they’re here to deliver a project and not just do a job. I’m very happy with that. If I had to manage an in-house team it would probably have cost me three times more.

Are there any areas DashBouquet could improve?

I know they’re under a lot of pressure because they’ve got other projects. Recently, it’s been a bit harder at times to complete everything smoothly. I think they need a bit more time, or the project manager is busy because he has more projects now. I know they’re reorganizing because they’re scaling up. They’re having growing pains but that’s the best kind of pains.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The client is impressed by the ease with which DashBouquet responded to changing requirements and scope creep. DashBouquet's frontend skills surpass their backend development expertise in the mind of the client but the client has been very satisfied with the engagement.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

uTheory is an online fundamentals of music theory ear training and rhythm course, sort of like a Khan Academy but for music. I’m the owner.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DashBouquet?

They were largely involved as we were building our initial product. Actually, from early on in the design stages, they were doing a large amount of the graphic design for the site as well as the frontend design. Basically, what we’ve built is a content management system for music classes. They were building largely the content management system, and then the folks on our side of it were building the music content and doing programming related to the interactive music questions.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The frontend of the site is built in Angular 1.5 at this point, and we’ll probably stay with that for a while. On the server side, we’re running Node. Originally, we were looking at going server-less and going with Parse, but then we moved away from that as some of the requirements where we were tracking student progress became just too complex for that.

How did you come to work with DashBouquet?

Initially through Elance which of course is now Upwork. As I was interviewing various firms, the thing that really impressed me in particular about Anton [Shaleynikov, CEO] who was the project lead, was that he was able to look at the requirements and the specs and actually see through to what a better set of specs would be and how to get there. Really, that was largely my experience as we worked together for about 18 months. They are just very experienced in this space of responsive web design, and knowledgeable of what technologies to turn to in order to solve various problems.

How much have you invested with DashBouquet?

We’re at about $60,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started in December 2014, and then we launched into beta at the beginning of this summer, around June.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve only launched publicly two weeks ago, so I don’t have all that many stories, although we already have four colleges who have adopted us as a text for classes, so that’s exciting. From beta testers, I have an enormous amount of internal feedback on it that’s all been very positive about how just usable and just intuitive everything in the interface is. Especially in our space, to use our competitors’ products, students and teachers have to have training to know how to do it, whereas we’re getting almost no support calls at this point. It seems like it’s all clear enough and logically enough laid out that people are able to just figure out how to do that stuff on their own.

How did DashBouquet perform from a project management standpoint?

Really, they seem to have in place a really good project management system, and their estimates were always really quite good in terms of number of hours for different portions of the project. I don’t have a sense actually of how large the organization is, but basically there were about four or five people regularly involved in building uTheory, and then different people brought in as different things were needed. For a time, we had one of their guys helping out actually with some of the musical interactive exercises as we were trying to do a sprint to get some of those done. Then, they also brought in a designer from time to time at the start of portions of the project and then as we’d wrap up portions to just go back and do polishing.

From my perspective, it was really seamless and saved an enormous amount of time in terms of having to find and hire separate designers, CSS experts, JavaScript experts. Largely, we interacted through Slack and Trello, keeping a Trello board as users would report things or as we would notice things and then assign them on Trello.

What did you find most impressive about DashBouquet?

I think that the scope of the project crept enormously. It turned out to be a much bigger challenge than we expected when we started, and their flexibility at responding to that and scaling in response to that was really impressive. All the way along, they were really concerned with delivering quality work and very responsive to feedback. I think in our case it may have been a slightly unusual situation for them, because on our side we were working with a codebase and they were working with a codebase as well, so there’d be mutual code reviews happening. They were all really wonderfully responsive to even just styling changes in code. Anton, especially, I have to single out as just being a really extraordinary communicator and just being highly committed to getting the job done on time, on budget, and done well.

Are there any areas DashBouquet could improve?

No, I think they’re really very strong overall. Their frontend work seems to be a bit stronger than their backend work, and we did most of the backend work on this project, which was just fine. We also had some very complex backend challenges including various machine learning things. I’m just very pleased with all the work they’ve done for us.
