Adventure Aide is a tourism and recreation app similar to AirBnB Experiences. The app allows users to book unique outdoor adventures, ranging from surf lessons to multi-day backpacking excursions that are arranged by locals. The app was started back in 2014, with several freelance developers at the helm.

Our approach was to refactor and rebuild the application architecture for both the mobile side and back-end. The

technology stack was changed to use modern mobile and web frameworks, two mobile apps for Adventurer and Aide were merged into a single app with multi-role login. The application performance was improved significantly and user flow was made much more efficient. Our teams worked on the application for more than two years handed it back to the original team along with details and instructions on how to manage the project.

This app matches dental professionals to specific dental practices based on the skillset required and hours of availability. Dental offices can create full-time or part-time jobs to notify dentists in their local area. The app features a live chat and a scheduling/notification system.

 

Our back-end and front-end teams took over the product from the previous development company who had completely dropped the ball.

During the first month of development, we refactored the app and the backend, introduced the proper MVP architecture, and a REST API, while the mobile side saw a 50% performance improvement from ourtotal refactoring. After the cleanup was complete, our teams worked on the admin panel, live chat, payments, and a new promotional website.

 

The application was released to the AppStore and Google play at the same time that the marketing campaign was successfully launched.

COMMERCIAL MULE CONNECTOR FOR IBM I (AS/400) MAINFRAMES Image

COMMERCIAL MULE CONNECTOR FOR IBM I (AS/400) MAINFRAMES

This connector enables IBM I (AS/400®) mainframe integrations with ordinary Mule applications and is available here. A typical use of the connector is with integration projects when a business is not willing to abandon their existing infrastructure, but would like to introduce modern technology, or ensure the

integration of business applications that are running in the mainframe with other systems. The connector supports synchronous and asynchronous uses and supports one-to-one and one-to-many scenarios. The connector enables the mainframe to call (publish) an event in Mule or call a Mule service. Moreover, it is now possible in Mule to publish a notification in AS/400, and call AS/400 service or team.

The connector was successfully certified by MuleSoft and is available for use on the official Mule website https://www.mulesoft.com/exchange#!/ibm-as400-integration-connector. Connector demo applications were created to show users all the connector’s features.

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 owner of Clever Pepper Creative, a marketing and design agency in New Zealand, Auckland.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DevTeamSpace?

I had some PHP development that needed to be redone on websites. We are mainly a design-based business, so I needed support for the backend coding of the site and that wiring process.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Alex built some pages for me, mainly WordPress sites. We worked on themes. I did the design work and the content, then he coded it all for me and worked on the backend. Basically, he produced everything the way I wanted it to look. He took my designs and turned them into an active and live page. He also made sure that the images and everything worked well on mobile and other devices. They also worked on Google, Google ads, since he makes sure that the pages can be found when they’re being searched on Google.

DevTeamSpace tweaked and redesigned existing clients’ sites and they’ve also built sites from scratch for me. They’ve built normal flat page sites and they’ve also built online shopping baskets to a section site. I’ve done 4 or 5 projects with them. We have ongoing items that he’ll amend and adjust, and we’ll do different changes.

How did you come to work with DevTeamSpace?

I was referred to Alex by a family friend of mine who has a building company. He had worked with Alex and highly recommended DevTeamSpace. It was basically just the confidence that my friend had in them, that’s why I went to DevTeamSpace.

How much have you invested with DevTeamSpace?

Probably between $6,000 to $10,000. I can’t tell you offhand, to be honest. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started in 2015. The engagement is ongoing. He’s quoted on another 4 projects for me.               

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

My clients love the refreshes that we’ve done on their sites. We’ve got another client referred from them. The rebuilds and the new sites we’ve built for clients are accessible, that’s why we’ve had referrals. Traffic-wise, I can’t tell you about that. But I do know that I’ve definitely been getting referrals from the work that they have done, so I’m very happy with the result.

How did DevTeamSpace perform from a project management standpoint?

I only work with Alex and we communicate via Skype. We’re pretty old school. We just chat and have a fun meeting once a week quite regularly. We stay in touch and we communicate that way pretty much. If I Skype Alex, he will come back to me on the same day. He’s always available for me.

I realize I’m not his only client, so I feel quite lucky to have somebody basically at my beck and call. If anything goes wrong with my site, he’s always available to help me immediately. I’m very lucky to have that. I’m a small business, so I appreciate the time that they prepare and dedicate to me. It’s very good.

What did you find most impressive about DevTeamSpace?

It’s tricky for me because I only work with 1 person there, but he certainly has a lot of knowledge. If I don’t understand things, he’s quite happy to explain and educate me. He’s willing to show me how things work, whereas a lot of other techno people aren’t that willing to explain and educate their clients as well as he does. I appreciate that because the more of an understanding I can have, the more we can work together and I can help him make his life easier. He’s very good like that. I’d say that that is definitely key to helping us grow our business together and making him very good at what he does.

Are there any areas DevTeamSpace could improve?

There’s a little understanding issue that I have with Alex on certain things, where I have to give him examples of things to understand, but I think that that’s just the language barrier. That’s no major issue at all. It’s something that I’m quite happy to work with. No, I’m happy.

Feedback summary: 

The site is both functional and visually appealing. DevTeam.Space's developer was consistently available, wrote excellent code, and ensured that every project requirement was fulfilled. However, the team sometimes failed to give realistic scheduling estimates or deliver projects on time.

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

BACKGROUND

Please introduce your business and what you do there.

We're a startup that deals with both online and in-house recruitment. I am the founder and chief executive officer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DevTeam.Space?

I needed someone who could help me develop a website to do online recruitment.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They've done a responsive website design for me. I think it's coded in PHP probably using Bootstrap. They just suggested how they would do it, and I said fine.

It's pretty much a recruitment consultancy online, so people upload a profile, and then it uses an algorithm to determine what they do and shows them the correct jobs for them. It front-end loads the search function, and then once you can see a job, you can apply for it knowing that 90 percent of the time you can actually do that job. It just filters that by their applications.

How did you come to work with DevTeam.Space?

I put out a few advertisements, and they approached me. I spoke with a couple of their people and just chose them. For me, it was mainly having a chat with their developer. He convinced me. I could tell that his technical knowledge shone through, so I decided to go with DevTeam.Space.

How much have you invested with DevTeam.Space?

We've spent about $10,000 working with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We're literally just going through final testing at the moment [August 2016]. I suppose I will keep using them for maintenance work. We just launched an MVP [minimum viable product], so literally we're just testing things to make sure this is the final version and that all additions to the modules are interacting correctly. Then, we'll go from there. I began working with them last June [2015]. Hopefully, the site will launch at the end of the week.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

No one has actually used the site as yet, but those who have seen it like the visuals.

How did DevTeam.Space perform from a project management standpoint?

In terms of coding and interacting with me and understanding the needs of the project their developer is fantastic.

Unfortunately, their timekeeping leaves a fair bit to be desired. I think they need to learn when to say no. If they can't do something within a given timeframe, they need to say so. They need to give a realistic estimate of the time needed for something, and then just do it, and I have told their developer that he needs to improve his timekeeping.

The downside of their project management is timekeeping, but the upside is that they do very good coding and their developer does a very good job of interacting with me.

What did you find most impressive about DevTeam.Space?

I've only ever used one other provider, and they were quite poor. Having someone who can actually do the job is quite nice but, again, I am singing the praises of their main developer – my project manager. He is very good, and the coding is done well. When he says he's going to call me and be available, he's absolutely fantastic, even though I think he's about eight hours in front of me. Literally, I can call any time from my morning to evening, and he's around. I think he's a vampire, to be honest with you. He just lives at night.

Are there any areas DevTeam.Space could improve?

Besides the timekeeping issue, I'm not too keen on their CEO [founder Alexey Semeney] – maybe that's just a personality issue. I try to keep away from him and just work through my developer.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

ATM or Australasian Trading Management provides independent financial research. It's very much an online business, and we upload reports on New Zealand and Australian stocks on the market. I'm a partner and one of the founders of ATM.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DevTeamSpace?

DevTeamSpace pretty much programmed our website from scratch. Our portal is essentially a stock market research website. People pay a subscription to get access to our research, so it is quite important that we have a stable website. Everything should be working properly and bugs need to be fixed quickly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

DevTeamSpace developed our whole website. Since it has to be up and running all the time, they provide ongoing support. During the initial consultation, we had to map out exactly what we wanted. The project had three different parts. We have a public website in WordPress that everyone can see. This section includes the landing page, About Us page, and contact details. These public pages were integrated with the members-only area of the website, which was customized and more technical. It was coded from scratch, but I couldn't tell you exactly what code they used. This members-only area requires secure passwords and special conditions. For example, a member can only be logged in using one user name at one time. Lastly, DevTeamSpace built a back-end for admin functionalities, where they did a lot of technical work. They created a user panel where we can upload documents and make changes to the content in the members-only sections.

How did you come to work with DevTeamSpace?

Initially, asked someone I knew to build the website, but he didn't really have the technical experience. He was mainly using WordPress, which has a very simple template program to build websites. We then used Freelance and a couple of other sites to advertise our project. We went with DevTeamSpace to build the entire front-end and the back-end of the website. The interesting thing about them was they were a lot more experienced than most of the other vendors that we got. Given our experience with the first guy – he was really cheap, but he obviously didn't know what he was doing – we wanted to make sure we got a good job done. It was quite interesting when we tried to bargain with DevTeamSpace. We realized that these guys weren't cheap, they knew what they're doing, and they've thought about everything. Because the website is very critical to our business, we chose to go for quality in terms of pricing or cost.

How much have you invested with DevTeamSpace?

We've spent close to $15,000 in our project with DevTeamSpace.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our initial consultation with DevTeamSpace, including the planning and design stages, started in September or October of last year [2015]. The website went live in December last year and, since then, we've had ongoing support from DevTeamSpace. When we went live, we realized that our website still required some changes. DevTeamSpace helped us improve the site and fixed other issues as well. It's very much an ongoing relationship, and that's one thing that they're quite good at.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Overall, we're happy with the website made by DevTeamSpace. Because it was brand new and coded from scratch, we could add all the new features we wanted during the development stage. After about six months, we've finally gotten to a stable stage where we don't need more alterations and tweaks. It's a success since it does not need further development, and we have a business that operates well. Our members and clients find the website easy to use. It's also not difficult to use on the admin side of things. Ongoing support is important, and DevTeamSpace has been able to provide that to us.

How did DevTeamSpace perform from a project management standpoint?

Alex is our project manager from DevTeamSpace. He's our point of contact who manages project and our site. He's always there if we need changes or if something's wrong with the website. He's been very good and always responds in a timely manner. We just chat on Skype, and he'll always reply within the next 12 hours. If he's busy, he always has a timeline that says I'll get back to you in the next 24 hours or something. Obviously, it's difficult when you're speaking to someone from another time zone. He's been pretty good with all our requests, especially when we were building the website. Everything was clear and set up quite well. We knew what they were going to do and the milestones that they wanted to achieve. Nothing ever goes exactly to plan, but they were pretty close.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with DevTeamSpace?

When you're dealing with Russians and contractors from countries, it's important that they're good at communicating in English. That can always be an issue especially when English isn't their native language. That's something to look out for.

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

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We're a revenue management and property management company for boutique hotels and vacation homes.

What is your position?

I am the head of technology, among other things. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with DevTeam.Space?

The biggest thing that we were having troubles with was working with the systems in our industry that rely on other platforms for advertising. The problem with these sites is they oftentimes don't integrate well with other systems, so we had to build systems to make that integration easier for us. Initially, there was a lot of back-end work that we had to do in addition to our need to collect all of our property data.

We were originally thinking about building our own property management system, but we ended up not doing that project. When we first approached DevTeam.Space, we had many spare projects, and we needed a team that was flexible and was willing to work with us at a startup level, where priorities change very quickly. Oftentimes, we were operating under assumptions and things that might change within a week. That's the world that we live in, and we needed someone agile for us.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

They were providing architecture support. They also provided programming support and did minimal design work for us because we're not in a UI [user interface] heavy industry. I was functioning as our de facto project manager, giving them all the requirements and reviewing their status. They provided us with work-hour estimates, based on how we engaged in work contracts. We were on a time and materials contract with them, so there was no fixed cost that would have been detrimental based on how quickly our priorities change. This was much better.

We were primarily a .NET shop with SQL databases, but we also had a key application of ours that written in Java. You could think of us as .NET primarily.

How did you come to work with DevTeam.Space?

Our former CTO had a previous working relationship with them, and we were referred by him.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

It cost between $75,000 and $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

When I joined, they had been onboard for a while working on a few projects, and I think that engagement started around the summer or fall of 2015. We finished our contract in April or May of this year [2016]. Obviously, if something breaks we can call them, but there's not much that we can't service ourselves at this point.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

As I was saying, we had many different priorities that were moving around. There were definitely a couple of key projects that we had to turn around rather quickly. From our perspective, both of those projects were a huge success for us. One of them was a front-end application that we had them build because we actually hit our data limit on Google Sheets. DevTeam.Space built a replacement system to accommodate tens or maybe hundreds of thousands of entries that we had in there. They got that done in about three weeks, which was nice. That was a huge project for us. It wasn't a difficult project. It was just mainly that it was super sensitive.

The other thing that we had to do was basically mimic ourselves as coming from different IPs [Internet protocols] around the world to hit one server so that we could were masking our own IP address so it didn't look like we were all coming from the same office. We had to build a tool to integrate that with login capabilities. DevTeam.Space actually turned that whole project around in a weekend. After that, we went to an outsource team.

The way they're DevTeam.Space is structured is interesting because they give you a project manager who is assigned to your team, and he finds developers in Russia or Ukraine. He had something together over a weekend, and he found us some more developers I think in Russia or they might have been in Ukraine – I'm not sure. Those guys put together a much more robust system for us.

We also had a bunch of back-end systems that, unfortunately, I can't comment too much on because they're proprietary for us. Those systems were also in place. I've been pretty happy with the way they've been performing.

How did DevTeam.Space perform from a project management standpoint?

We have a unique system that isn't really straightforward project management. We are flexible and just tell them to do things first that are of higher priority.

For both of the projects that I mentioned earlier, I was functioning as the main day-to-day project manager. We were using the Kanban method, which is like scrum, to do the project. Both of those were done on time and within budget, I was pretty happy with the way those worked out.

What distinguishes DevTeam.Space from other providers?

Their demeanor is friendly. They really try to accommodate our needs. Their flexibility was amazing. We never had a proper SLA [service level agreement] with them, but they definitely spent many weekends working on stuff that they probably weren't necessarily obligated to do. They were doing it because they wanted to help us out.

If you need something done that isn't well defined or if you need to get things going, DevTeamSpace is your shop. They did not need a clear scope to start working, and I liked that about them.

Is there anything DevTeam.Space could have improved or done differently?

You have to know your budget well because these guys aren't the cheapest guys in the world. While I was happy with the quality of the work they provided, we definitely weren't able to use them as maintenance subs because their rates were just too high. They were flexible negotiating rates with us, so I imagine they might want to do that for other people. For us, the cost was just a little bit too high for the amount of money we had to spend.

Although the product saw mediocre sales, DevTeam.Space's work on the project met high standards and was always delivered on schedule. Their technical skills were excellent, but suffered from without solid project management support.

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

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

MyTime is a B2B [business-to-business] SaaS [software-as-a-service] software builder.

What is your position?

I was chief technical officer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with DevTeam.Space?

We were trying to get a product out the door during a time that we were short on staff. The other problem we had was that we were trying to build a software that was slightly complicated, and we needed to get it out in time for our sales team to sell it. There were challenges around that, and DevTeam.Space came in and helped us meet the deadline.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

We needed a front-end developer to work on the front-end styling, the CSS and HTML, as well as the JavaScript side of it. They provided us with a developer from their team who was able to help us quickly and he helped us build out a very significant, sizeable part of our front-end.

How did you come to work with DevTeam.Space?

They were referred to us through a mailing list we are part of. It is a startup incubator here in the San Francisco Bay area. There was no competitive process. We reached out to them.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

It was around $10,000, but less than $15,000 – for sure.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began somewhere around March or April of 2015 and it was completed in July 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

Eventually they helped us build a SaaS software that sold somewhat okay. To be honest with you, I don't have any metrics that are actually flattering. It is not anything that is a result of DevTeam.Space's work. It's more that my company couldn't quite capitalize on it.

How did DevTeam.Space perform from a project management standpoint?

They could have done a better job because there was no project manager. Alexey [Semeney, founder and CEO of DevTeam.Space] helped a little bit, but he mostly jumped in when something was wrong. It's not like it was a huge red flag or anything, but it could have been better. Communication would be an area for improvement for them.

As far as finishing stuff in time, DevTeamSpace was amazing at it. I would definitely work with them again just based on that.

What distinguishes DevTeam.Space from other providers?

They have a strong technical team I would say.

Is there anything DevTeam.Space could have improved or done differently?

No. I think everything else was pretty much on the tee.

Feedback summary: 

All projects, from back-end development to testing, were completed quickly and flawlessly. Although working from a different time zone occasionally made communication difficult, DevTeam.Space impressed with their technical skill, rapid turnaround, and painless billing process. 

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

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Sonar is a company that enables businesses to communicate through mobile channels like text message or Facebook message.

What is your position?

I'm a founding engineer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with DevTeam.Space?

We needed to hire more engineers. In San Francisco, it's hard to hire. At that time, we had one engineer – me. Alex [Semeney, founder and CEO] and his team at DevTeam.Space helped us a lot while we were looking for engineers. Now, it's been half a year or so, and we have six engineers. We were scaling fast, and we needed their help developing and coding while we went through growing pains.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

They gave us a nice engineer from Russia named Vlad. We would check in several times a day when he was available on his time zone, and he would submit PRs [pull requests] on GitHub so we could make a PR review and then evaluate his work. Our application is a web app, but it works on mobile, too. It's built in Ruby and Node.js. We use Node.js, Ruby, and JavaScript. We use Amazon, too.

How did you come to work with DevTeam.Space?

I was looking for an engineer, and then our mutual friend introduced me to Alex. He said that they had an engineer for me, and we actually ran an interview. Vlad was the nicest one we talked with, and he could reply to all the technical questions that we had prepared. At first, we were working maybe 10 hours a week and then 40 hours a week. The last few months, we've just tried to get as much time as possible from this engineer.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

I think it was about $100 an hour from 20 to 40 hours a week for maybe two or three months. First, the engagement was a little lower, but then it grew. It was close to $20,000 total.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started out in August 2015 and completed around October [2015].

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

We just used GitHub issues, but we basically opened issues, and then we would make him submit a PR so we can run a cold review and see what's going on. That was the process. There were different issues ranging from queries to testing, improving our test environment. The only challenge was the time zone change, but even with that, it was so useful for us that it would help us move to the next level and help us survive hard times.

How did DevTeam.Space perform from a project management standpoint?

I never had any problem with project management. The time zone issue was huge. That's the reason we ultimately hired our engineers in-house. Other than that, I never had any problem communicating because we were both developers, and we understood each other well. We didn't need project management help. We never had an organizational problem, and the payment was easy to pay. They sent us an invoice, and we just fulfilled it. They sent us invoices once every two weeks.

What distinguishes DevTeam.Space from other providers?

I like how fast they are. They were fast to reach out, and I could Skype them. Part of their team is here in Silicon Valley, so I could talk with them anytime easily and they would respond fast. I liked that, and I liked how fast they provided us a developer. We were in big trouble, and DevTeamSpace helped us to get a solution fast. I truly can recommend them on projects for companies that need help short term. It depends also on the company. Some companies can hire them for ongoing consultancy.

Also, they're really receptive to feedback. We gave them feedback about payments, and they changed their invoice system fast.

Is there anything DevTeam.Space could have improved or done differently?

The time zone issue was the one thing.
