Feedback summary: 

Though they’ve just begun marketing the app, it already has several hundred Android users and several thousand iOS users. Always forward-thinking, Digiryte’s team suggested changes that would improve the platform as they worked. Daily communication helped them address concerns as they arose.

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 director and founder of Bumper UK, an automotive sales app.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Digiryte?

We needed to hire someone to develop our app and understood our design and what we wanted to deliver while differentiating us from the rest of the market.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed the app for iOS and Android completely from scratch. This included wireframes, design, layout, and development. We needed the app to be simple to use, with minimal buttons for users to get to the page they wanted. Digiryte understood our vision and was able to achieve it by creating a design that minimized the number of steps on the platform, reducing the number of clicks required to get results from 6-8 clicks to just 2-3 clicks.

What is the team composition?

We spoke to a project manager on a regular basis and they handled all of our queries and feedback, passing on our requirements to their team.

How did you come to work with Digiryte?

We conducted some research and found several positive reviews online. We hosted several initial meetings that went really well, so we hired Digiryte.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $70,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2018 and we continue to make updates.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We just hired a marketing team to grow our presence, but we have 500 users on Android and several thousand using the platform on iOS. So, things are looking good. We can’t speak highly enough of Digiryte’s team because they bent over backward to help us launch our product. They’re a great company to work with, and their team is brilliant. We plan to use them for all updates in the future.

How did Digitrye perform from a project management standpoint?

They kept me informed and regularly asked for feedback and how to improve the app as we went to ensure that they delivered a solid product. With daily updates, they addressed anything we were concerned about by explaining how processes work in layman’s terms.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We’ve never thought of anything they need to improve because they were always on the lookout to make the product better. Before we could even ask the question, they were coming up with even better solutions.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s nothing I can think of.

What is the team composition?

Are there any areas they could improve?

Feedback summary: 

Digiryte’s final product successfully completed months of user testing, which helped mitigate issues moving forward and produced a user-friendly experience. The team’s open communication helped reduce costs and created a positive collaboration, and they remain a valuable resource. 

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 a senior member on the account financing team at a quickly growing oil and gas company. We manage logistics and transportation in the industry. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Digiryte?

We needed to rework our accounting system, because it was outdated. We were already starting to have issues, but it was important to us that we invest in a modern and mature IT system now to prevent bigger problems in the future when we have a larger operation. We also really wanted the program to be based in the Cloud, so we needed to bring in a separate team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They helped us migrate from our old accounting software to our new system, which was a huge undertaking. The main part of the project was enabling us to use the Cloud for our systems. For this, they developed the front- and backend of both our website and new mobile app, starting with wireframes and documentation.

What is the team composition?

We had a team of 7-8 people, including a project manager, designers, and developers that collaborated with our in-house IT person.

How did you come to work with Digiryte?

We were looking for a cost-effective company that would do the job right. We’ve worked with larger companies in the past, but Digiryte was recommended to us as a reasonably priced package and we were astounded by how much we could save with them. We then scheduled a couple of meetings and started there.

How much have you invested with them?

We invested about $700,000, so it was a big project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We officially worked together from July 2018- May 2019, but we still reach out with questions.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’ve had a really good experience using the system. We went through User Acceptance Testing (UAT) for a couple of months prior to the end of our engagement, which helped eliminate any issues early on. Overall, it was a great experience.

How did Digiryte perform from a project management standpoint?

We used Skype for office communications, but I prefer phone or email if I have an individual question. I was hesitant to work with a company that was so remote, but the project lead made it run smoothly, and that was a surprise. We can still contact our project lead if anything comes up, but we haven’t had any issues.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They complied with everything that we needed from them. The best part is that even though the engagement ended, we still have open communication.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Initially, I wished to get more face-to-face time with them, but ultimately it helped us collaborate much more efficiently. More in-person communication could be nice, but their approach helped save money and time.

Feedback summary: 

While the work is still in progress, customers using the early version already see the value the portal will bring. The team offers the needed expertise in IT and the medical field. They deliver excellent project management through good communication about deliverables and progress.

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 and director of MedzLegal Private Limited. We operate as a bridge between the medical and legal fields of the US market.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Digiryte?

We needed to create a portal through which clients could easily upload and review case files. We wanted to automate our processes and make the documentation process easier for our clients to understand. We were looking for a firm that was good with AI and machine learning.

We tried working with other IT firms earlier, but we weren’t satisfied with their output. They were well-versed in IT but not aware of the medical side.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They are developing our customer portal using AI and automation. Our clients upload records, our production team works on those records, and we provide the output to the clients. Our requirement for Digiryte was a portal with a contact form where people could fill in their details and requirements, upload all their records, and click “submit.” We update the clients automatically on the status of the job, any inquiries that need to be made, and any interim disruptions. 

HIPAA regulations in the US medical field require encryption to safeguard the records, so our requirements include being HIPAA-compliant. We have an early version in place, which uses the encryption standards of the US military. All the files are encrypted before transferring. It also has basic forms, upload functionalities, and automated emailing. The files have dedicated cloud storage. They built it on Ruby on Rails.

So far, we have an early-bird version. It’s the basic UI of how things will be and how they’ll work. The AI component will work only after we’ve gathered more data.

What is the team composition? 

We’re working with six people from their team, including UX designers, content managers, and automation specialists.

How did you come to work with Digiryte?

We met one of their co-founders at a medical-legal conference. He explained what they did, and we were quite impressed. Since he was also a medical professional with vast knowledge in the field, we thought they would be the perfect fit for IT support. 

How much have you invested with them?

We’re planning to spend $60,000. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Digiryte in November 2018. We have a set date of three years from now for the final delivery. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve been satisfied so far. We’ve introduced the early version to a few clients, and they’re using it on a trial basis. We’ve gotten positive responses from them, and they say that this portal is going to be exceptionally helpful for them. We’re spending much of our time following up, and people have been satisfied with the basic sample we’ve given them. The end product should be much more satisfying as a result.

How did Digiryte perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re quite good. I receive regular updates on what’s going on, and I have good visibility on what they’re doing. I appreciate their efforts to keep us informed.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The overall experience is great. Something that stands out to me is their ability to help me understand IT terminology and concepts. They are so humble. They didn’t simply do what they knew.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I don’t have any suggestions.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

I would recommend Digiryte to other clients based on my experience.

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 co-director of OoberFit, a fitness-based app that connects customers to fitness trainers, classes, and gyms. Users can book through the app.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Digiryte?

We needed a development team to build our fitness app, including the whole wireframing process, design, and coding.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’re taking it from the idea stage all the way to market. We started with the discovery phase to go over the business plan, after which they did the wireframing. Now, they’re in the design stage and are bringing quite a lot of their own ideas to the table. Once this is complete, they’ll give the designs to their developers and get it coded.

What is the team composition?

There’s one main project manager that we communicate with. He communicates with the rest of the team, so I don’t know how many people are on the job.

How did you come to work with Digiryte?

We spoke with quite a few development companies and could tell that the people at Digiryte knew what they were talking about. They had several ideas on how to do a few things. We had a really good chat at the start, and they were willing to give us a decent price based on the future of working with us. They were looking at potentially working with us for the next few years on various projects. In the end, I saw a good business sense from them, and they were willing to offer us flexibility.

Furthermore, Digiryte is one of the first companies to be using the Flutter platform, which means that we can launch on both iOS and Android from the very start for a much lower price. No other app development company has been able to offer that.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2019, and the collaboration is ongoing. We’re planning to launch around June.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s been good working with them because instead of us having to be really pedantic on changing little things, they come up with better ideas than what we have since we’re not technical. They make our job very easy in this sense. They’re experts and a key part in changing how the UX is going to look.

How did Digiryte perform from a project management standpoint?

Communication with the project manager is really good. He’s proactive about asking questions or coming up with his own ideas. Once we agree on what we’re going to do, he gets the work done and comes back to us for approval.

Digiryte executes on a very high level. We use Slack sometimes, but we generally set up calls via Skype or Zoom when we have things to discuss. We did one call a day for about two weeks straight at the start. Now, we have a call once a week and a few messages over Slack.

What did you find most impressive about them?

When signing the contract at the beginning, they were willing to give us a really good deal. I’m sure they solely did it intending to get future work with us, which shows really good business acumen. Their owners think further ahead than what’s normal for app development firms.

We also really appreciate how the project manager provides his own ideas. Some of the designs that came through were things we wouldn’t have thought of. Overall, they’re a key part of building the app.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Communication occasionally suffers due to connectivity issues, so some key points are accidentally missed because we’re never communicating in-person. Regardless of that, their project manager is great.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

In the past, we’ve gotten to development, and we’re happy with the code, but then we want to change designs and add ideas to the project. By then, it’s obviously too late to implement our changes. If clients want to have a smooth process from start to finish, they need to make sure that they work out the entire scope beforehand.

Ensure that all wireframes are completed and approved. Each piece has to be right rather than going back to the vendor later and asking for more designs. It creates a massive mess and several delays.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work in marketing for Close Brothers Asset Management. For nearly 50 years, we've provided financial education in the workplace to some of the best-known employers in the UK.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Digiryte?

We wanted to develop an online "financial wellbeing fitness test" for our employers and individuals across the UK.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We sent them the specifications to guide their work. They followed our guidelines for system architecture and design elements and helped the project grow. The web application is almost complete, and we expect it to evolve over time.

Digiryte is creating a diagnostic tool to help individuals and companies understand their financial fitness. Based on user responses to a series of questions, it generates an indexed score within the seven steps of wellbeing and shows how those results score against other individuals in their demographic categories. To maintain & manage their back-end operations, a unique, simplified dashboard was built with the right metrics to keep track of 24/7.

What is the team composition?

We worked with an account manager who oversaw their team.

How did you come to work with Digiryte?

I’ve known the account manager for several years and worked with him at a previous company. He was the main reason we chose to work with Digiryte. He’s the perfect middleman, very knowledgeable and understanding. He operates with integrity, and he made Digiryte the obvious solution for us.

What is the status of this engagement?

We've just had a limited launch this week and are only marketing the app to existing clients so far to stay ahead of our competition. Because the app is so new, we don’t have any concrete evidence to demonstrate success yet.

We still have a dialogue to make sure we meet benchmarks set by other apps, and they liaise with various design agencies who are building other assets for the launch. They’re making sure the frontend look and feel is cohesive across everything we’re doing.

How did Digiryte perform from a project management standpoint?

They seem to work constantly, which amazes me. They turned the whole project around on time and on budget, and they kept us updated with tools like Trello. They made it easy for us to keep track of their tasks, and we’re pleased with the engagement.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The amount of time and effort they dedicated to us before the launch was impressive. They were proactive, communicative, and the account management is second to none. They sent us updates at all hours and are a lovely group to work with.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Whenever you develop a project like this, make sure your brief is detailed and correct. If you are clear with your objectives and specifications, you will have an easier time.

Feedback summary: 

The platform is high-quality and professionally built. Despite a few initial complaints, user feedback is generally positive. There were a few scheduling issues at the beginning of the engagement, but all miscommunications were resolved. The experience led to future collaborations.

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 co-founder of Vapewunder. We’re an e-liquid subscription company. Our customers fill out a profile, and we send them monthly or bimonthly boxes with a surprise selection of e-liquids based on their preferences.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Digiryte?

Our company was gaining traction in the market, and we were starting to outgrow our basic WordPress website. It was slow and incapable of processing a high volume of data, which was hurting our business. We urgently needed a stronger and more professional website. Additionally, we wanted to automate the box-assembling process with a curation tool.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Migrating information from our original website, Digiryte fully designed and developed our new platform. They built an administrative tool using Python, and the infrastructure for product listings and customer profiles. As part of a rebranding initiative, they also redesigned our logo.

Customers are first prompted to choose a subscription model and complete an interview process so our system can get an idea of their e-liquid preferences. Then, the platform creates user profiles from their provided information. We run the profile against our full database of e-liquid products to curate a box that matches the users’ preferences. We used to put the boxes together manually, but this tool is much more intuitive.

What is the team composition?

Naresh (Senior Software Development Engineer, Digiryte) was our main point of contact, acting as both programmer and team lead. He managed a background team of designers.

How did you come to work with Digiryte?

We contacted several mid-sized vendors that we found through a Google search. We had a Skype call with a representative from 5–10 companies. Shoaib (Co-Founder and Managing Director, Digiryte) took the call for Digiryte, and he was very convincing. He understood what we needed and translated that into technical requirements. We explained that we needed a quick turnaround, and he seemed more than capable. Based on that—and a competitive price—it was an easy choice.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent €50,000 ($56,635 USD) on the project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in June 2016–2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They delivered above and beyond our expectations. Digiryte produced a professional and well-built platform. We’ve received positive feedback from our customers. We had a few complaints about duplicate bills, but we’ve resolved the issue. The automated box curation has really benefitted our business. It helps us save time, track our inventory, and provide more personalized services. We’re now able to focus more on marketing efforts.

How did Digiryte perform from a project management standpoint?

We had a bit of a bumpy ride, but it wasn’t entirely their fault. Our request for a quick turnover deviated from their normal scheduling procedures. They preferred to thoroughly asses the overall timeline before structuring each milestone. We really pushed them to work as fast as possible. On top of that, there were some unforeseen issues that stemmed from external parties, like PayPal. The delays built up, which continued to push back the completion date.

All that said, we’re still happy with the experience. We’re even working with them on a different project right now, following the same management procedure as the first. In terms of communication, we mainly spoke via Skype. I talked to Naresh for my day-to-day needs. Additional team members would sit in if we were discussing bigger issues. They were extremely responsive throughout the project.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They care about their clients. We asked a lot of them, but they never said no to a challenge. It was clear that they wanted to deliver the best product possible. Their problem-solving skills are impressive. Given the obstacles we ran into, they had to work additional hours to get us back on track. Furthermore, we initially paid for a four-month project, but we soon realized it would take longer to complete the scope of work. Digiryte didn’t charge us any more for the rest of the year.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They should’ve pushed back when we asked them to work faster than their normal procedures.

Any advice for potential customers?

Clients need to clearly explain the scope of the project and their expectations because some information can get lost in translation. They should prioritize tasks before assigning the work to Digiryte. This will set the foundation for smooth collaboration.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The Digiryte team is professional, efficient, and possessed the expertise necessary to complete the job. Not only are their coding skills solid, but they’re also personable and genuinely collaborative. They take direction well but also present alternative solutions that can improve the product.

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 IT manager of a product management firm.  We handle check-ins and check-outs for rental agents, as well as property inventories and inspections while the tenant is onsite, to verify the return of security deposits.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Digiryte?

We’d hired two other companies prior to them that didn’t work out. When Digiryte came in, they tried to work with the previous code and found they couldn’t, so they’ve been redeveloping everything from scratch.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’re creating a web-based application that our head office will use to manage reservations. They’re also building an Android/iOS app that will integrate with our web app.

We’re setting up a portal for clients to use for booking jobs. From there, the head office will get alerts on their side of the app and allocate jobs to our contractors. Contractors will have the ability to accept jobs through the app as well, and they’ll be able to fill out their reports and upload pictures. Once that process is complete and verified by our head office, the app will also automatically generate invoices to send to our clients.

In terms of development, they handle all of the coding using Flutter, React Native and Ruby. One of my colleagues has provided them with basic design sketches to follow. A lot of our feedback is spent explaining why we need certain design elements in order to maximize the app’s efficiency for our employees. Right now, we’re in the process of A/B testing and plan to launch the system in November 2018.

What is the team composition?

We have frontend, Android, and iOS developers.

How did you come to work with Digiryte?

We started searching for another vendor once it became clear that our second development company wasn’t going to get the results we needed. When we came across Digiryte, we set up a meeting and were pleased with how they handled it, so we decided to move forward with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in April 2018. They’re still working on the app, but we intend for it to be an ongoing relationship once that’s finished.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’ve been a major improvement over the previous companies we hired, and the development process is nearly complete. A colleague and I test the code personally, so we’ve been able to gauge the quality of their work based on our experience in the industry. They’re prompt about resolving errors and making suggested changes. We won’t know how much the app will speed up reporting times for our contractors until it’s out in the field, but I expect that Digiryte will continue to respond quickly to our concerns and minimize downtime.

How did Digiryte perform from a project management standpoint?

They deliver great communication and are a pleasure to work with. We use Slack for everyday communication and Skype for teleconferences. We also use GitLab so we can go back and forth quickly during our testing period. In addition to being so responsive, they’ve also adhered pretty well to the schedule they initially gave us.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They prioritize communication in a way that our previous vendors didn’t. We can get in touch with them around the clock, though we don’t take advantage of that fact. Another thing I really appreciate is how well they listen and collaborate with us. If we make a suggestion and they find a better way to implement it, they’ll come to us with the recommendation rather than using more inefficient code. Overall, they’ve been delivering quality work at a quick pace.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not at the moment.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Know what you want. If everything is planned well, it minimizes delays due to project changes and allows Digiryte to meet the deadlines they promise.

Feedback summary: 

Digiryte regularly communicated and offered guidance to make the best product possible. They kept the partnership simple and efficient, avoiding technical jargon when possible. The website and software performed as needed, resulting in a great partnership.

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 a former series producer for a production company that makes programs for the national broadcasters in the U.K.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Digiryte?

We had an idea for an entertainment program that would run in conjunction with a sponsor. The concept was to see if someone’s friend or AI would do better at matching two single people. We needed a partner to develop the algorithm and website to run it on.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Digiryte helped develop a piece of software that took someone’s social media profiles and their answers to a 120-question personality test and ran it through a compatibility algorithm. The program paired people up and gave each couple a compatibility percentage, ranking them from most to least compatible and displaying the results. Digiryte also developed the website, which only needed to be functional and not aesthetic because our internal team was the only one using it. Digiryte did all of this within a nine-week timeframe.

What is the team composition?

We mainly worked with a team of developers.

How did you come to work with Digiryte?

We found three suppliers and evaluated them closely. We chose Digiryte because they could translate their techspeak into our non-technical language and promised they could deliver within our tight window. They weren’t the most competitive option in terms of cost, but they had the infrastructure and skills to deliver on time, so we hired them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from June–August 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The website performed exactly how we envisioned. We needed someone who could deliver something that matched our sponsor’s ad campaign and also fit within the broadcasting schedule, and Digiryte did both.

How did Digiryte perform from a project management standpoint?

They clearly established expectations and project milestones. We held regular Skype sessions to discuss updates and any questions, and we also communicated over Slack.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They knew how to talk our language and avoid tech-heavy jargon. Right from the beginning, more straightforward told us what they could do and weren’t afraid to make changes to the scope to make it easier or more cost-effective. They offered functionality that we hadn’t even thought of because that’s not our area of expertise. They promised a functioning website skeleton but delivered something even better.

Are there any areas they could improve?

A few things got lost in translation. Sometimes, I had to look up a few technical terms that they just assumed we knew. Making their communication even clearer would improve their services.

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 general manager of Blackpool Hotels, part of the Big Blue Hotel chain.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Digiryte?

Our website unfortunately was not updated since 2003. We wanted to address the marketing and technology aspects of our website and address the outdated servers to make it easier for guests to book a room online.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We agreed on a platform to build our website and started the development process from the ground up. Shoaib integrated the website from its original server to the platform other hotels in our chain use.

What is the team composition?

Shoaib, the founder of the company, was my direct contact. Other members from the hotel IT and marketing departments were in contact with Shoaib and his team at Digiryte. I was mainly copied on emails and involved when needed.

How did you come to work with Digiryte?

I learned about Digiryte through a friend when I was handling business. He told me that Digiryte was a local company down the road from us. I received quotes from about three other companies and ended up selecting Digiryte for the project.

How much have you invested with them?

We invested around $12,000 with them for this project.

What is the status of this engagement?

The new website has been live for three months and we are looking into working with them again on another website development for one of our other hotels.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

In the three months since the website launched, there’s been a 25% increase in room bookings online. Our returning clients told us that the website is much easier to navigate and more pleasing to the eye. They also told us that it is easier for them to compare the price of our hotel rooms to others, along with finding other key information. Our clients also enjoy that they can easily book on their iPhones and iPads.

How did Digiryte perform from a project management standpoint?

Shoaib was very easy to communicate with. He copied me on his emails and kept me updated routinely with status updates. Shoaib often responded within a couple of days.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciated the ease of working with Shoaib and his team. They communicated very well with us. It was great that he kept me updated every so often with a status update and price quote.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They did a great job overall. Sometimes the transfer of content would be slow between our IT and marketing departments with Shoaib’s team.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

In general, I would absolutely recommend Digiryte. I would look into the different content building platforms they offer and choose what is best for your company.
