Feedback summary: 

Develandoo created excellent and easy-to-follow code, delivering its results in a timely manner. They're professional and easy to collaborate with, coming up with creative solutions. While they meet every deadline and are priced fairly, their prices can be lower.

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 founder of a software startup. We provide solutions for restaurants and the retail market.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Develandoo?

We needed a lot of resources to develop code because we didn’t have an in-house team. They've supported both our projects and our clients'.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed our front- and backend code using C++. We asked for numerous deliverables. For instance, we needed a tracking web application for a client in Moscow who wanted to calculate their daily production. Develandoo provided that solution for us. 

What is the team composition?

There are 4–5 people. We generally communicate with the CTO who connects us to the developers.

How did you come to work with Develandoo?

We came across them when they were teaching about their products and solutions at an expo in Armenia. We started cooperating with them because they’re one of the leading Armenian companies in AI.

How much have you invested with them?

Our investment is currently $32,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in August 2019 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They provided great solutions at fantastic prices. Their code is clear and they met all our goals. We had a perfect collaboration.

How did Develandoo perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management style is good. They're organized and always answer our questions quickly. Because they have different solutions and they sell these worldwide, they usually have what we need already. If they don't, they work very fast. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

We like working with them because they’re very professional and always make sure we meet our deadlines. They have interesting solutions.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We’ve had no problems with them, although their prices could be lower. As a startup, we had to pay a lot because they’re professionals and we needed quick deliverables.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be clear on what you want to get from them. Clearly describe what you need and everything will be okay.

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 VP of an intelligence security solutions company. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Develandoo?

We were looking for an AI solution that could detect weapons, guns, and aggression. Our team also wanted to have facial and license plate recognition. This is the sweet spot of our focus on intelligence solutions. They were able to do it all.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed the app for us. We secure pipelines and remote assets, adding intelligence to our solution that allows it to tell the differences between humans, cars, and dogs, for example. Our team offers other products for public schools that help to identify guns and weapons. The app is a browser-based dashboard that we interface with to identify alerts generated through the AI that’s monitoring the video. They also created an iOS and Android app that can monitor it as well. 

What is the team composition?

At any given time, I’ve worked with about a dozen people. 

How did you come to work with Develandoo?

I searched them out while looking for an AI that can handle the work I wanted. It was hard to locate them, but I found them through some deep searches. I enjoyed our conversations, so I hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent over $1,000,000 on their work.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in June 2019, and the collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The alerts that are supposed to be detecting weapons have an excess of 90% accuracy rate. So, we get very few false detections. That’s nice because people will start to ignore detections if they’re likely to be false.  

How did Develandoo perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been extremely easy to work with. I haven’t had any issues. We communicate using WhatsApp and email. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

The AI they’ve provided is very powerful and functions as intended. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

They’ve done everything I’ve asked so far. I can’t think of anything because they address all the issues I bring to them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

The success of a project is all about two-way communication.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Develandoo?

We needed to implement many new features on existing source code. Since we had too few internal resources, we asked Develandoo to help us meet our deadlines.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to develop features on our responsive web marketplace.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

A friend recommended Develandoo. We had two other vendors on the shortlist, but based our decision on price, track record, and positive personal relationship.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We provided designs, and acceptance criteria, along with access to all tools and servers. During a two-week look-up period, they asked questions about the current code. They develop and test back- and frontend features using HTML, PHP, and CSS. These feature requests are based on new listing types and aligned with our existing user flow.

What was the team composition?

The project team has five people: one technical project lead, one DevOps manager, two frontend developers, and one QA tester. At the end of the project, we reduced the team to one developer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We're launching this project for the first time, so some clients have already signed up. It's crucial to launch the portal on time and meet their expectations. If our product is successful, we'll continue working with Develandoo.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Their project management is good, and they respond outside business hours. We use Slack, Zoom, Jira, Figma, Zeplin, Google Docs, and GitHub, as well as a local staging and product environment. We have no language barriers; English works fine for everyone.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They're friendly and motivated to go the extra mile. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

They can improve very little; I have no special suggestions.

We’re developing an app in iOS and Android, but we lacked the resources to finish the frontend. We engaged Develandoo to build the apps’ frontend.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a fully functional app to go live in February or March 2019.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I was introduced to Albert (CEO, Develandoo). After we checked their service offerings and past projects and held a couple of calls, we decided to work with their team. They demonstrated flexibility and dedication to customer service.

Describe the project in detail.

We set up a roadmap and weekly goals to meet. Develandoo then built the frontend of our Android and iOS apps while our internal team developed the backend. We already had a UI/UX design in mind. However, their team suggested new ideas to improve its implementation, which we found valuable.

What was the team composition?

We worked with two frontend developers, one of whom was our main point of contact.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Develandoo produced a completed frontend in eight weeks, meeting our deadlines perfectly. They polished some areas after delivery, which is expected for any project. We’re highly satisfied with their work and our collaboration.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The team made communication over four time zones as straightforward as possible. Their developers got along well with our CTO, showing excellent initiative and giving feedback on ways to improve the project. We had weekly calls to provide progress updates. Develandoo was flexible in scheduling these check-ins and responded quickly to any inquiries we had at any time.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Develandoo delivered high-quality code on time and at excellent value. They adapted their service offerings to our project needs. They also completed work and communicated entirely remotely. Develandoo felt like an extension of our team even though I never met them personally. I had complete confidence in their work, which allowed me to focus on other aspects of the business while they finished development.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I can’t think of anything.

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 3back.ai, a startup that is redefining the way customers give feedback. We are re-shaping the way feedback is understood, used and implemented from a company’s perspective. By putting the people first, we create consistent and easy-to-use AI-driven customer experiences. 3back is working to optimize the customer feedback process to benefit both consumers and vendors. We found that consumers often have trouble contacting or getting the attention of big vendors. Our goal is to create a communication channel using AI technology that delivers customer feedback to businesses. Ideally, this will help vendors address immediate issues quickly and go on to offer products that better fit their audiences’ needs, ultimately strengthening customer loyalty.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Develandoo?

We plan to offer this experience to all industries in the future, but we decided to start in the automotive space. Consumers spend a lot of money on cars, but there isn’t a direct way for them to provide feedback to the relevant people in the organisation that have the power to make changes based on their customers’ reactions.

We’re developing a system that can work either from a phone with a mobile frontend or as a car’s voice assistant. The app will listen to what customers say about the vehicle, collect the comments, and deliver the insightful information to the company, with specific comments triggering an active response.

The core element of our service is the AI technology, which needs to comprehend complex, technical, and qualitative information at a large scale. We needed help assembling a dataset that’s extensive enough to train our AI system, analyze with data science, and create algorithmic models, allowing us to build an automated system that’s capable of understanding all kinds of content. Because we plan to offer our services on a wide scale, everything we do ideally has some built-in flexibility to adapt to fit other industry needs.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our company is gathering automotive data from the internet and sharing it with Develandoo. Their team has supported us in applying data science processes to that content and developing statistical models and algorithms. With their experience in the AI space, they test our system to help us determine how plausible our idea actually is. So far, the models are producing positive results.

What is the team composition?

Albert (Founder & CEO, Develandoo) guided the project, but I also worked with their lead data scientist.

How did you come to work with Develandoo?

Develandoo is an international company, but they have an office location in our area. Albert and I connected on LinkedIn, and we started a conversation. We met for coffee, discussing my business plan. He was interested in the project and thought his company could help, so we engaged in a long-term collaboration.

How much have you invested with them?

So far, we’ve spent between $30,000 and 50,000. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in February 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

At this point, all outcomes have been positive. Each of the models we’ve worked with so far are producing the results we expected. The models that Develandoo provided are capable of gathering and understanding data, which proves that our ultimate vision is possible. Now, we’re just working to get our business off of the ground.

How did Develandoo perform from a project management standpoint?

We met in person a few times, but we mainly communicate over Slack, and they’re consistently responsive. Develandoo provides senior staff to work on our project, so we feel like one of their top priorities. The team is also always available to take care of any issues that come up.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are highly collaborative, seamlessly working alongside my staff. We’re happy with the quality of their services and the pace of their work. Additionally, I really appreciated the freedom to decide who I wanted to work with from their company.

Are there any areas they could improve?

So far, everything has been fine. My company is accustomed to working with remote teammates. Internally, we have employees from a lot of different companies. With that in mind, if a client is looking for a more on-the-ground partner, they should discuss this with Develandoo so they can send people on-premise.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Stellar project management and comprehensive skill set made for a very smooth process. The Develandoo team exhibited a positive attitude throughout the collaboration and found creative solutions to complex problems. They exceeded expectations at every turn.

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 Liquid Newsroom. We’re a hybrid organization in both the media business and IT development business.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Develandoo?

The challenge was to build a deep learning model to identify concepts in political news articles, which also could be generalized to be used in other domains as well. It was the task of Develandoo to do the full product development cycle for this prototype. It was crucial that all decisions were scientifically validated, on solid mathematical and statistical ground achieve a higher than 90 per cent accuracy, when running the model with test data.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We built a core team of one data scientist with PhD level and a senior Python programmer and one from Liquid Newsroom to implement a team which can execute any kind of task from first research to model creation to implementation very fast and highly independent. They were involved in all necessary steps to create a final solution and to complete the planned prototype phases including the creation of a frontend to make the model accessible for non-technical staff.

Develandoo built a solution that uses machine and deep learning techniques to understand concepts in news articles. The prototype is complete, and I’m now working with the team to build another core project.

What is the team composition?

There was a senior Python developer and a data scientist.

How did you come to work with Develandoo?

I met Develandoo and they were highly engaged, knowledgeable, and eager to get things done. I liked their portfolio. We experienced a wonderful sense of cooperation as a team.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2018 and recently completed the prototype. We’ve since moved on to other projects.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The Develandoo team is composed of highly talented individuals with extraordinary skills. They succeeded in achieving all the goals and milestones that we set. We also worked with them very well. They’re very engaged and energetic in suggesting ideas. It was encouraging to see them build on their own expertise and knowledge throughout the project, going above and beyond what I initially proposed.

How did Develandoo perform from a project management standpoint?

We used a SCRUM development model and usually started each day with a “standup” 15-minute meeting (a virtual conference) to recap the previous day. We discussed the status and the challenges we’ll have to address. It was a very transparent relationship, and I didn’t have to micromanage. The whole project was meticulously documented and everything exceeded my expectations.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We love people. In our collaborations, we aim for a balance between expertise and geniality. We like having fun while working hard. We had so much fun and laughter in the morning meetings. Overall, the team spirit was great.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. It was a pleasure working with them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They can deal with many different types of clients. If you want to get the most out of working with them, leave them some creative space to apply their knowledge.
