The Review
Feedback summary: 

The quality of the finished portal functions is excellent. Diceus provides expert development services at a reasonable cost. They deliver their work in a timely manner. Customers can expect a communicative and proactive team.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the product manager of Lion Trans, an international transportation company that ships cars to the US and Canada.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Diceus?

With our experience in shipping cars, we decided to build our auction site.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We first prepared the technical documentation for the auction portal and began developing a few months ago. Diceus advised using .NET language, which would be easier for our company to manage. Their team built the platform using .NET, with PHP elements and a SQL database.

What is the team composition?

We worked with a project manager and a business analyst.

How did you come to work with Diceus?

I looked for providers based in Ukraine, which is close to us, and had heard the region had a high number of professional developers. We decided to reach out to a few, and Diceus had an exceptional proposal for our team.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested over $100,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Diceus in October 2018, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Some elements of the portal are finished, including registration and specific auction pages. We are confident that we will meet our deadline.

How did Diceus perform a project management standpoint?

Diceus works hard for our company. They’re a professional team with skilled developers. We’ve had open communication with them. I use Jira to track their progress.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Diceus has an excellent sales manager, and I was satisfied with the initial communication. Other companies took longer and didn’t answer all my questions. They have great pricing and fast delivery times, and I enjoy working with their business analyst.

During the selection process, it was essential for me to know how candidates worked with other clients because we’d be working remotely, and the size of the project. Diceus was better at providing transparency than other companies in their industry.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There are none that I can think of.

The application saves the business money and time, while providing the end-users with an excellent, attractive platform. They are dedicated and efficient, accommodating to the requirements of the client and carefully explaining all technical aspects.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the director at a trucking and logistics company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Diceus?

We wanted to create an application that we could give to our subcontracted transport companies.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The application is built for Android. It’s a way for us to help our drivers find gas stations, keep their route correct, and we can also track them.

We have fuel cards that we wanted integrating into the application. It reads the API information from our supplier, then the drivers are able to track their consumption and see the location of the gas stations. We’re also able to send them offers and notifications.

What is the team composition?

There was a project manager. At times, we were in contact with the owner, while in the beginning, we had contact with the developer who showed us some technical things and visuals.

How did you come to work with Diceus?

I was looking for a development company online and contacted a selection. Diceus was the fastest to respond and interact, as well as having good reviews.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent 30,000 euros (approximately $34,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from February–September 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They have helped us make our business more attractive to the drivers. It’s more comfortable and we’ve made cost savings.

How did Diceus perform from a project management standpoint?

It was smooth working with them. They’re very dedicated, explaining things and introducing us to a lot of things. We used email because it’s easier for me and reviewed the documents through the cloud, since it gets constantly updated. We used Skype for conference calls.

What did you find most impressive about them?

If you’re a person with no idea about IT, they will lead the way and form it for you. We told them our idea and they helped us come up with the final look.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, we were satisfied. They’re really nice people.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

You can go to them with no knowledge and they’ll lead you.

Feedback summary: 

Because Diceus finished the work on time, the product was ready for launch by the deadline. The team prioritized responsiveness and availability in their approach to communication. Additionally, they proactively kept all team members up to date on the status of the workload.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the head of the IT department for a consulting firm. We specialize in helping organizations improve their business by optimizing their customer experience strategies. My main responsibility is the development of internal applications.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Diceus?

We had already developed an MVP for HappyTRACK, which is an online application that helps organizations track employee performance. We hired Diceus to continue the development and build additional features.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a final product that aligned with our vision.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We first heard about them from Upwork. We reviewed three other companies and spoke with their staff about our product. Ultimately, we were most confident in Diceus’ ability to deliver.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

Based on our roadmap, we collaborated with their team to develop a series of complex ideas and detailed requirements. Diceus prepared mockups and submitted them for our review. Upon our approval, they programmed the functionality. Additionally, they contributed to the ideas to our data visualization initiative and designed several dashboard samples.

What was the team composition?

We worked directly with a project manager, but also interacted with a designer and two developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We finished the work on time, which set us up to launch the completed product at an event we were organizing. It was our highest priority, and we’re happy with the results.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Our communication flow was excellent. We used Skype for calls and Slack for daily communication with the developers, with regularly scheduled meetings to make sure everyone was up to date on our progress. Lastly, we shared source code through our private Git repository.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Each team member was always available to address my questions or concerns. Because of their ability to understand our vision, it was very easy for us to communicate our ideas.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

No, everything was good.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Although Diceus was initially only hired for their design skills, their work made a strong impression, leading to the expansion of their role. The prototype is already fetching companies’ interest and desire to collaborate. The team is highly collaborative and they deliver high-quality results.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of Bittease. I have a rewards product that can be used for restaurants and shops. The goal is to introduce the rewards system idea in the Middle East similar to the way it is used in the U.S.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Diceus?

I graduated as a software engineer, but the system is large. I needed the help of their developers and designers.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

In the beginning, I only asked for their assistance with design. I liked what they made so I asked them to assist with the development as well. Now, they’re doing the back and frontend for the application and the platform, the admin system. For the backend, they used .NET and an Azure product. For the frontend, we’re going to use Xamarin. They’re doing a cross-platform for Android and iOS. The project is almost done. We’re doing the minimum viable product right now.

The customer uses the app by finding the restaurant they want to go to. Then, the restaurant scans the code to give the customer points for every purchase or discounts. After they accumulate enough points, they can get items for free. The shops and restaurants can fully customize their offerings. I’m targeting the local shops here in the Middle East.

What is the team composition?

In the beginning, there was a designer and a manager for the design. For the development, they had one person for the backend, one for the frontend, and one project manager.

How did you come to work with Diceus?

I used Google which led me to Clutch. I did my research and chose multiple companies. I felt most secure and confident with Diceus.

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent between $20,000–$30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in May 2018 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Everything is going amazingly well. Once it’s tested and I see the user feedback, I’m sure I’ll continue working with them. They provided me a prototype and I presented that to multiple companies who like it and are highly interested in being a part of it. They like the design and how the app works.

How did Diceus perform from a project management standpoint?

I wanted to be involved as much as possible because I have development and project management skills. We overcame all the obstacles that showed up from the beginning.

They’re amazing with communication and hitting deadlines. I never had a problem with them with timing or communication. We’re using Jira for the task management. We’re also using Azure and GitHub. We have a daily meeting and follow the Scrum methodology.

What did you find most impressive about them?

With Diceus, due to the daily communication with them, they wanted everything to be clear from the beginning, which is why everything is going as it’s supposed to.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I documented the idea with user stories, use cases, and sketches before deciding to work with them. Providing this kind of information will help your development.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Because the project is still in the beginning stages, there is limited feedback to provide. Their designs and early process of code architecture are great. The seven-hour time zone difference is only a minor issue because communication between both sides is quick and direct.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the director of software development at a small software development and consulting company in northern Virginia.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Diceus?

We needed to move from a 15-year-old technology stack that was mainly Java-based with C# and C++ libraries. We offer several products including a desktop product and an enterprise server product which we want Diceus to help develop. Our current business model requires that we separate the frontend and backend of the site and complete an overhaul of the old data that accumulated over the years and we did not have the internal staff needed to take on this development process. We wanted someone who we could partner within a time zone that is similar to ours.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Diceus helps generate some dynamic pages display and create a new tech stack that runs quicker than the previous version. They helped implement API and other backend development processes. On the frontend, they help create a reactive application that runs on a single-server database. They are adding features that improve the functionality of the software by rewriting the system. Diceus is essentially assisting with the streamlining process of the next major version of our core products. We plan on continually evolving the project and making descensions on improving the user interface as we go on.

What is the team composition?

The team is composed of a lead developer who also serves as the project manager. Two backend developers and one frontend developer round out the current team. In the next few weeks, another frontend developer will join the team. We also employed a temporary UX/UI designer who is contracted with us through September.

How did you come to work with Diceus?

We went through an exhaustive process to find a service provider. Our search was primarily online, we also had a few recommendations we looked into. Outsourcing the project for us was guaranteed and we had a preference in the Eastern European region because there were several advantages for us. We ended up selecting Diceus because of their prompt response time, availability of resources, and price. Their team was technically astute, and their CEO was involved in the development process. They were a happy medium between a large firm and a small firm which fit what we wanted for the project.

How much have you invested with them?

Up until this point, we invested $30,000 and we have budgeted about $250,000 through December.

What is the status of this engagement?

We are still in the pretty early phases of the product project. We started in April with one lead developer, and the team has grown since then. We expect this project to last at least a year, if not more. Right now, we are in the designing stages and starting the building of the software architecture with the UX/UI designer. It will be a continually evolving process, because of the growing nature of the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our project so far is going great. Even though we are in the really early in the project we haven’t hit any roadblocks yet, which is admirable. I imagine that if any come up in the future they will handle issues promptly.

How did Diceus perform from a project management standpoint?

We use JIRA Confluence Bitbucket for code repository in addition to Slack and Skype as our primary communication methods. We prefer not to use email in favor of more direct communication because of our limited overlap in the workday due to the time difference. This method works well for us since we can focus on summarizing the progress of the project in Slack and address any issues as soon as possible. There were some problems communicating due to the language barrier, but my daily Skype session with the project manager helps alleviate any miscommunication when I’m offline. Their team typically is offline after 11:00 a.m., but they will occasionally be available past that point. I also prepare thorough documentation to track and prioritize the work needed.

What did you find most impressive about them?

This type of project is new for me since the original system was constructed before my time at the company. Based on my personal research, I saw the necessity for constant and daily communication and to ensure that we can work as a unit even though we are in separate locations. That is the standard I’ve set from the start. It's been working well, but I don't have anything to compare it to.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It is a little too early to tell, but so far the only suggestion I have is clearer communication in terms of the language barrier to eliminate added efforts transcribing.
Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

I would suggest communicating frequently with their team. We take advantage of the overlap in the work day and found that communicating via direct messaging tools like Slack work better than delayed communication like email.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The platform has recently launched, due in large part to Diceus’ ability to work quickly and efficiently. Their extensive team produces high-quality code while keeping all tasks organized. Further engagement is planned because of the project’s success.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are developing a crypto-trading website that will provide wallets for customers. Our main activity will be to exchange USD to crypto like Bitcoin and Litecoin. We provide wallet support and we facilitate transactions for our users. I am the CTO of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Diceus?

Our priority was to address the security of our application. The entire crypto market is known for poorly designed solutions, and security is our main concern. We required a lot of manpower in the development phase in order to build the website infrastructure.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Diceus has helped us with developing the crypto-exchange system. We have developers for ASP.NET, C#, and SQL Server. The security testing is done in-house, but Diceus is helping our development team with certain items. Diceus is writing server-side code for the main web platform. We’ve kept the trading engine in-house because we wanted to have full control of it, but the server-side part of the interface is mostly being done by Diceus.

What is the team composition?

We have a project manager and a team of developers. We also receive sales support and other similar services.

How did you come to work with Diceus?

We hired them after a series of collaborations with other companies.

How much have you invested with them?

I estimate that the cost of their services has been more than $60,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in August 2017. We had our live release a few days ago, and we’re continuing the collaboration.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We are pleased with their work, and I anticipate that it’ll contribute to our success in terms of scalability and monetization.

How did Diceus perform from a project management standpoint?

We use Jira to track progress, and we use Hubstaff to monitor worktime. Diceus’ team has always been very resourceful. They are able to find a solution quickly, while other companies we’ve worked with usually required one or two weeks to achieve the same thing. Diceus has the internal resources to provide us with what we need. They have delivered good quality.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The quality of their code has been the most important part for us. It was the determining factor in the decision to continue the collaboration.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It would be worthwhile to see them make an investment in more English training for their developers.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The well-designed interface meets the needs of both existing and prospective clients. Diceus worked to understand and accommodate client needs rather than forcing those needs into their own model. They provided an appropriate level of project management for the concise technical project.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m Senior Clinical Consultant at ReStart Consulting, which focuses on consulting integration and interoperability across health and social care systems.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Diceus?

Our business challenge was to build a different, more modern user interface for a product that is set inside various organizations’ servers as well as web-based. Our old user interface was a tired and unsophisticated frontend. We wanted it to be much more open and engaging, where we could display and present data to a range of clinicians across the health economy.

We had internal arguments about it so decided it was better to go outside the company for an independent view of what was possible. We wanted to use a React type software like that used by Facebook and other social media services.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Diceus developed our new user interface iteratively over about six weeks. They based the design on conversations with me as a clinical lead and our technical interface colleagues. We gave them an idea of what we wanted and they responded with ideas that would ensure more interaction with our users. They provided wireframes for review and feedback. We worked through a couple of iterations of the design and ended up with a clean, crisp display based on a table format.

What is the team composition?

We initially communicated with their sales people and a project manager. Then they handed it over to the designers and software engineers.

How did you come to work with Diceus?

Our managing director’s son-in-law had worked with Diceus previously on a project of financial changes and outlining for the financial markets. We knew Diceus through him. They seemed to be in a good position to be able to do the work that we wanted.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about £5,000 ($6,600 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together for 6 weeks from March to April 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve presented it to two existing clients and four prospective clients so far. Everyone has remarked that it’s great that the refresh screen is uncluttered. They were able to build an interface that allows each of the individuals across the care spectrum to see what they need at the point of care rather than showing everybody everything. It’s a well-tailored screen that meets the needs of both existing and prospective clients.

How did Diceus perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated via Skype and they would share their desktop with me. Given that the project was only six weeks, there was no need for too much project management and external control. Our focus was on the technical and design sides. We had the right level of project management and oversight without me being burdened by multiple emails or phone calls from a project manager. It was very well handled.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their willingness to try to understand what we needed rather than set off to deliver what they thought we should have. I’ve worked in the industry for a long time and have found that a lot of companies try to shoehorn your needs into what they have to offer. Diceus didn’t do that. They tried to be very clear about our needs before getting started.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Almost immediately after we had finalized the project, they started to press me for further sales. I think you need to allow some time after a project ends before you start chasing additional sales.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Use Skype rather than emails. We had conversations rather than bouncing emails back and forth. I think a lot of clarity comes from a conversation rather than multiple emails that don't really clarify anything.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The solution is currently used by several large customers across the globe. Diceus excelled at clearly articulating terms, meticulously tracking progress, and communicating about the project. Their efficient workflow and affordable pricing set them apart. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our company provides an insurance policy administration platform to brokers. I was a product manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Diceus?

We were developing the prototype of an insurance management product. We wanted to do it quickly and at low cost.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Diceus developed our web application using PHP, HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap. The app is a general-purpose online quotation and sales solution for insurance products. It was a simple product that we wanted to develop quickly.

What was the team composition?

They assigned a project manager. I can’t remember much interaction with the developers, so the process was quite efficient. I gave Diceus a general assignment and they made a rudimentary specification; I wasn’t hassled about the project too much after that.

With other outsourcing companies and more sophisticated projects, we want to work directly with the developers. This project was so easy that we didn’t need to.

How did you come to work with Diceus?

We were referred to them, and they stood out because of their efficient communication. We were quick to set everything up and start the work. Cost was another factor. Diceus was more expensive than developers in Belarus, where we’ve done a lot of work, but they had competitive pricing.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost was around $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Diceus around November 2016. The project took around six weeks to complete. We've been talking to Diceus about other projects. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We've provided the prototype to B2B customers, who have sold it to their own customers. We presented the solution to customers and explained how we intended to turn it into a more complex solution. Several big customers currently use a solution derived from Diceus' software in their sales process. It's being used in many countries, including New Zealand. 

How did Diceus perform from a project management standpoint?

They performed well on this project. We didn't use any project tracking tools. I know they use Jira, but since the current project was quite simple, we didn't need it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

You can find proper development skills in many former U.S.S.R. countries, like Ukraine and Belarus, but Diceus' professional communication stood out. They were great at tracking the project and creating offers and contracts. They're among the best at project management and business communication.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Though still underway, their performance and deliverables thus far have met expectations and have been well received. The team is able to work seamlessly across multiple time zones globally, and after ironing out any initial communication difficulties, collaborates smoothly and professionally.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the founder and CEO of a company that specializes in database services and cloud database regulation.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Diceus?

I needed a company that could help me develop some products. We're a professional services company and we needed to use a partner that specialized in development. I haven’t worked with too many service providers, given that we are service providers ourselves. However, in this case, we needed some help from a professional outsourcing company.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They've provided development services, mainly for products around the database space. We work with technologies like Java and AngularJS, depending on the project.

We have a new project coming up soon and I believe that we will increase the development team on their end.

What is the team composition?

I have my own managers working with the team from Diceus. We also have a team that handles some of the development processes. We have a project manager as well as development, QA, and UI teams on their side. We work directly with every team member, but there is a full-time, dedicated project manager who helps us manage all the tasks.

How did you come to work with Diceus?

I traveled to Ukraine and met several companies—at least five or six. I initially started working with another company, but I was disappointed with the quality of their work. Diceus was my second choice. We started to work with them and I’ve been happy with the results.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost of their work will be around $500,000 during our first year. It could be a little more, depending on our upcoming projects.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them around November 2017. The collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve received good feedback for the work so far. We have the ability to check code and perform reviews from our side. So far, it looks like Diceus is doing a very good job. I have nothing bad to say about them, but I don’t have any metrics to share.

How did Diceus perform from a project management standpoint?

We're working with them on a daily basis and using some tools for project management. They're based in Ukraine, so we’ve had to adjust ourselves to their time zone, but they do great work. We had to take time to understand their culture and everything else, but they've been responsive and we can trust them. After we decide on the timeline and sprints, they work according to those. The performance has been pretty good—we're satisfied with them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The response time is one of the most important factors for me, along with flexibility, even outside normal working hours. We're in the U.S., they're in Ukraine, and we also have a team in the Middle East, so we need to work across different global time zones. With Diceus, I haven’t felt that I needed to check their work every hour. They are responsible, they appreciate the work, and it’s important for them to maintain long-term engagements. Whenever we have had an issue, they solved it quickly.

We have only been working with them for less than a year, but they’ve done a good job so far. We still have a lot of work to do, but we’re happy with the results up to now.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The biggest problem in working with Ukrainian teams—and something we perceived with our previous company—is communication. Once we found a good way to communicate, we were able to solve most of our issues. It’s not easy to communicate in English—especially for companies in Russia or Ukraine—but we found that Diceus was able to understand us. We could involve their CEO in discussions around strategy.

The previous company we tried to work with was absolutely horrible. They didn’t understand us, even though they kept saying yes to us. This hasn’t happened with Diceus. It took us at least a month to get to know each other and understand their capabilities and pace, but I feel very comfortable working with them.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

U.S. companies working with providers from these countries should make sure that there is a close collaboration during the onboarding process, in order to ensure the partner understand what is being built. Things will work smoothly after a month or two, but the onboarding process takes time. If one person doesn’t understand the client well, it can affect the whole team. We have to be particular in selecting resources, perhaps through interviews. I found that Diceus’ team was able to understand us and that they found the right people.

Feedback summary: 

The product is still in the works, but it’s functioning as expected and can be tested. Flexible and accommodating, Diceus goes above and beyond to meet all needs, while their versatile and highly skilled team has been successfully managing all aspects of the project.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the CEO of a tech company that provides software solutions to dentists. We’re located in Estonia and Norway and we develop systems that help dentists keep records of their patients.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Diceus?

We had a visual prototype that we tested in Norway and Estonia, so we were looking for a company to handle the development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Diceus fine-tuned our prototype and started implementing it. Initially, we thought we needed only backend developers since we already had the visual prototype. Later, we realized that we also needed frontend developers and graphic designers. Diceus has a versatile team, so they handle UX/UI design and produce 2D images for us.

What is the team composition?

We mostly work with our project manager.

How did you come to work with them?

I posted a workable proposal on Upwork and they got in touch with me. After that, we went to Ukraine to meet with them. They seemed to be just the right size and they really wanted to work with us. Besides, they were very flexible, so we decided to give them a chance.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent about $75,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in January 2018 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have a functioning product, which we can test. It's work in progress and we're halfway through the project.

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

We have daily Skype calls and regular design sessions where we discuss the progress of the project. We also use Jira and GitHub for project management.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciate that they're constantly learning new methods and platforms. Initially, they wanted to work with Photoshop, but they were able to switch to Adobe Illustrator and worked on improving their skills. I was impressed with their graphic design capabilities.

Are there any areas they could improve?

English is not their first language and some of their team members could improve their English-speaking skills.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be clear about your budget and your timeframe to avoid any misunderstanding.
