The Review
Feedback summary: 

datarockets maintains a structured development process, organizing communication channels by purpose to streamline the development process. The team is also committed to providing internal feedback, which helps individual members improve.

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 managing director of wefindvenues. We’re an online platform that connects venues with customers looking to host corporate events (e.g., meetings, conferences, incentive trips, parties). We predominately serve locations in the UK with about 2,000 venues currently listed and 5,000 spaces for hire.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with datarockets?

One of our founders had originally built the platform in Ruby on Rails but left to start on a new project. So, we reached out to datarockets to take over the development support.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

datarockets initially joined the project to fix bugs and sort out the platform’s infrastructure. Every few weeks, they would address any issues we had and make minor improvements. Since then, we’ve expanded their role to include developing the latest iteration of our product. They’re currently working to improve the way venues interact with our platform.

What is the team composition?

The main team consists of a project manager and two developers. I coordinate with the project manager to determine what we’re doing and occasionally contact the others through Trello. I also speak with their CEO to sort out payments and schedule time slots.

How did you come to work with datarockets?

We found them on Google while searching for affordable Ruby developers. Our technical lead interviewed their team and felt confident in their abilities, so we moved forward with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

Their work started in October 2018 and is ongoing. We’re planning to enter a roughly 6-week project with them to develop a new iteration of our platform.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

So far, they’ve only fixed bugs and made minor improvements, but my team is a lot happier now that we have development resources who can address problems as they occur. We look forward to working with them on our platform’s next iteration.

How did datarockets perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management skills are fantastic. We communicate through specified channels to keep organized, including Trello, Slack, and weekly planning meetings. The team keeps me updated without being prompted, and they never hassle me with unnecessary questions.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their communication is second to none, and they have a well-organized workflow. I appreciate their insistence on maintaining a routine. We have calls on specific days at specific times and use Trello and Slack for designated purposes. I also like that they’re self-critical. During weekly meetings, they give each other feedback on their work, which keeps everyone accountable and yields effective change.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I don’t have anything to add.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Follow their lead and trust them because they have a brilliant way of working.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The platform is used internally daily, but it has yet to be released to the public because of logistical reasons. The technology operates well for its current state, a result of datarockets’ collaborative and organized approach. Their timely and relevant input helped create a successful engagement.

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 CEO and founder of Pixel Dreams. We are a branding agency that specializes in communications, design, and strategy.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with datarockets?

We worked with datarockets to develop a human analytics platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The type of development work that we do is limited to marketing websites. This was our first attempt at a technology build of this magnitude. Our internal team managed the design while datarockets coordinated the development. In choosing datarockets, we selected a company based on its skill set, but we also relied on their team to consult us as we traversed this project.

They used React Redux to build the platform, which serves as a tool to collect individual and team performance data. For example, we’re able to track the quality of sleep and how it changes for each person based on a number of factors—including caffeine intake and whether or not somebody has napped or meditated. It allows us to examine and maximize team performance.

What is the team composition?

We worked with Pavel (CEO, datarockets) and the rest of his team.

How did you come to work with datarockets?

Another business owner referred them to me. We had collaborative introductory conversations. I felt confident that they could sufficiently guide us through the project.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent in the range of $50,000–$200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We have the project on hold as we evaluate growth opportunities and our business model. Our engagement began in January 2017, and our last sprint was in July 2018. As our team grows and we develop a more refined budget, we will resume working with datarockets.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We are not yet prepared to release this platform to the public as we had planned. It’s not complete, but that is because of our decisions, not because of datarockets’ effort. Even though we have no external users, we use it at our company every day. Regarding that goal, it’s been successful.

How did datarockets perform from a project management standpoint?

I’m a process-driven person, and I run my company similarly. Project management and account management details are essential to me. While working with datarockets, I noticed how well organized they are. We coordinated the project through Trello and Asana. They have an open and transparent communication approach with their team. In fact, we have adopted many of their practices at my business, so now we have much more collaborative conversations to explore all ideas. We had a great feeling of partnership and camaraderie with them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’ve been impressed with their collaboration and superior technical ability. Their work was amazing, and the way they managed the job was equally impressive.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I cannot pinpoint an area that requires improvement.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It’s important to be involved in the process.
