Feedback summary: 

The final product satisfied expectations and was completed on time. After successfully launching the app, Dropsource continued to be a strong addition to the project by supplying assistance and technical services. Their abilities and start-to-finish support make them a great partner.

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 product manager at Agari. We focus on email inbound and outbound security, including defending business email compromises and phishing attacks.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Dropsource?

We wanted to introduce a mobile app to our suite of products, but we didn’t have the in-house expertise to develop the platform. Our goal is to give our customers a quicker turnaround time through the app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Dropsource developed the apps from scratch for both Android and iOS devices. We provided their team with our designs and mockups for the frontend, and they implemented it as we wanted. Some of the features they created include push notifications and other actions for users to take when an event occurs. Once the development was complete, they registered our product on the app stores.

What is the team composition?

An engineer and project manager from Dropsource work with us.

How did you come to work with Dropsource?

Dropsource works in the same building as us, so they were a convenient choice. We’re able to sit face to face with them when discussing the project.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent in the $10,000–$50,000 range.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement has been ongoing since January 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Although not quantitative, the app was well-received by our internal team. During development, the main metric we were measuring was their timeliness, and they met our needs. Everything was produced on our tight timeline, so they were successful in that. Going forward, we’re measuring them by their efficiency in handling maintenance issues.

How did Dropsource perform from a project management standpoint?

Their team performs well. We’re always informed on their status, and their estimates for timelines are always accurate. They keep us updated on the total time they spend on a task, which is great.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their knowledge and expertise have been the best parts of working with Dropsource. They know how to develop a great product and widely distribute it. They check off many boxes for us.

Are there any areas they could improve?

As of now, there’s nothing to improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If you want a modern mobile app, they’re the right team to work with.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Dropsource's team has been instrumental in taking the company's application design and features to the next level. In addition to being responsive to client needs and goals, they've provided valuable feedback and strong project management throughout the engagement.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the CEO and founder of TribeSwapp, a mobile app designed to connect families for childcare services. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Dropsource?

I reached out to Dropsource to help develop my app from scratch. I considered using a build-your-own website option, but ultimately decided I needed more customization and backend development work in order to generate the MVP I envisioned.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Dropsource is in the process of designing and developing our application from scratch. They initially sat down with me to go over our value proposition, goals, and target audience, providing input and guidance in the process. We're now starting the next phase of work and moving into development. 

What is the team composition? 

I initially spoke with Will (VP of Marketing, Dropsource), but I now mostly work directly with Paul (Co-founder and Chief Product Officer, Dropsource) who is handling the design. The next phase of development work will likely be handed off to Nate (Co-founder and CEO, Dropsource).

How did you come to work with Dropsource?

Someone within my community mentioned Dropsource, so I checked out their website and was immediately impressed by their work. After speaking with Will, I felt they'd be a good fit and would be able to add a lot of value to my app versus some of the other options I was considering at the time. 

How much have you invested with them?

I've invested between $10,000–$50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

I've been working with them since January 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Dropsource helped bridge the gap within my company, providing both development services as well as strategic branding. I appreciate their startup culture and innovative way of approaching projects. They understand how users are going to react to certain apps, so they're able to add a lot of creative input and apply their knowledge to help improve outcomes.

How did Dropsource perform from a project management standpoint?

They manage the project very well, planning each phase in an organized, clear manner. They're also very responsive and keep me updated on project progress while being conscious of my time. I met with them almost every week in the beginning, but we now meet every other week.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their personal touch and customer-centric approach set them apart. They're willing to help take my product to the next level by providing honest feedback and a lot of valuable input. They also break down each step and take the time to help me understand what they're doing in layman's terms. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

Honestly, no. I'm very satisfied with everything they've done so far. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

No, but I definitely recommend working with them since it's been such a great decision for me, rather than attempting to create a platform on my own.
