The Review
Feedback summary: 

Combining stand-out responsiveness and technical skill, DUNICE provides skilled development resources in a timely fashion. They address problems as soon as they are raised and integrate smoothly into their client’s existing project management processes.

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 CTO of a fleet management software provider.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DUNICE?

We needed help with frontend development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They help us with frontend development, working with all the common frontend technologies including JavaScript, TypeScript, React.js. They also take care of the admin panel and the configuration of the frontend for our customers.

What is the team composition?

I work with three people that are junior- and senior-level resources.

How did you come to work with DUNICE?

I did some online research and found DUNICE. I had a nice talk with them and they were a good match. They provided very good profiles quickly. The communication was good.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in March 2020 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Their service is very good and they deliver good code. You can’t expect such good code from a junior developer as you’d get from a senior developer, but, overall, I’m satisfied.

How did DUNICE perform from a project management standpoint?

We handle the project management on our side, handing over tasks using GitLab. We communicate via Microsoft Teams, phone calls, and emails.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They ramp up quickly. We needed an additional developer and they had one ready in a day.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I had received a call from one of my team leads saying someone didn’t show up and it turned out he was off that day. This could be improved by getting us information sooner or upfront when it comes to holidays. It hasn’t happened again, though, so we solved it.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Work with them. I’ve only had good experiences with them.

Feedback summary:

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Software development studio for business financial apps. I am the founder and I am responsible for intial concept, application design, functionality and UX.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DUNICE?

I needed a developer to take over the development of a financial modelling application. I searched for a skilled developer to work with Vue and Firebase and follow a very specific brief.

What were your goals for this project?

Create an mvp which meets the basic functionality and involving a lot of algorithms which required someone with strong mathematical skills.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I searched on Upwork only. Out of hundreds of contenders I made a shortlist of three individuals and two agencies. I chose Duncice because they were quick to respond and it became quickly apparent that they were well organised and supportive.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Dunice are developing a web-based financial modelling tool using Vue.js and Firebase. They picked up on some early work completed by a freelance developer and quickly completed the intial sprint, exceeding expectations in functionalty and design.

What was the team composition?

I was surpised to find that there are several people involved in my project, which in this case is a good thing. The sales team worked to identify my problem and needs, and the project management team now oversee the execution of sprints including timing, fee estimations. They also are a good interface with the developer to clarify any issues I raise.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Although the project has some way to go before completion, so far I am very happy with the work so far. The team keep me motivated and I in turn keep them busy. So together we are making steady progress towards the goal of an mvp.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

All billing is processed via Upwork. The team access the software via Gitlab. We have been using a combination of Skype, Google Sheets and Trello to lay out the sprints, make estimates and track progress. The team speak excellent English and there has been no difficulty with language whatsoever. The team always respond quickly to my emails and have been especially patient with me during the Covid-19 crisis.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Very strong project management and good quality programmers. Also they live up to their name. They really "do nice".

Are there any areas for improvement?

I thing their page design/presentation/ux skills are lacking. I've tried to guide them with a brief but so far this has been met only in part

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

RailCommerce Company © RailCommerce owns the electronic trading platform www.railcommerce.com. The platform allows the operator and the owner of the wagons in the online mode to find the cargoes for transportation, having loaded the cars in the desired direction after unloading. The service allows the cargo owner to quickly find the wagons at the nearest station, which at the desired time and market price will be submitted for loading. In this case, the parties have the opportunity to enter into an auction with each other on the cost and conditions of transportation, discussing all the essential terms of the transaction directly in a personal office on the trading platform. I am the Executive Director of the company LLC "RAIL COMMERS".

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DUNICE?

Our strategic partner, Garant-Rail Service, approached us with a proposal to create and develop a unique electronic platform in the Russian industry - online service for organization and repair of freight railway cars. The service is located at: vagonmaster.com. As a result of the competition, Dunice company was selected to offer the best conditions and development costs.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to develop from scratch a comprehensive system that would allow us to calculate the cost of repair and associated costs, determine the optimal place for repair, monitor the progress of repair of the wagon, get all the necessary reporting documents on the fact of service. The perimeter of the system implied integration with four external software products: RailTariff, ACS TC, HVC RZD, Kontur (Diadok).

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

The performer was selected based on experience in developing similar web solutions, on the level of professionalism of the management and development team, on the experience of integration with third-party systems, on the skills of implementing digital products with an intuitive user interface. The selection was also based on the validity of the cost estimates.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

At the initial stage, a detailed statement of work was prepared, which defined the key vectors of the system, its frontend, and backend. Based on this specification, a detailed work plan was formed, which distributed the implementation of microservices to sprints. Despite a certain level of abstraction of the terms of reference, Dunice company went to a meeting and agreed to work on a fixed cost model. During the implementation of the wagon master prototype, the development team worked closely with our coordinators to propose the technical implementation of this or that task, discussed and proposed the idea and solutions in terms of business logic. Dunice company was very flexible in revising some tasks, treated adequately the additional customer's wishes, which were not initially provided for in the technical task. Special thanks to the managers of the Dunice development team who were looking for the ways of constructive solution of problems in seemingly stalemate situations, quick and effective exit from them. The project involved third-party developers who responded to the configuration and debugging of such systems as RailTariff, ACS TC, Diadoc. Dunice team found a common language with each employee, moreover, they often acted as a setter of tasks, described errors on the side of third systems, offered ways to solve - not simple "crutches", but thought over-promising implementations.

What was the team composition?

The team on the Dunice side included 5 people: a team leader, two full-stack developers, a DevOps engineer and a web designer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Cooperation with Dunice has allowed our company to strengthen in the eyes of partners the image of a reliable, results-oriented contractor. In everything we did, whatever solutions we developed, we always discussed them with the Dunice team before implementation. From an economic point of view, the success of the project will be evaluated a bit later.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The communication process was as transparent as possible, understandable. Dunice team always goes to a meeting, even if there is some urgent task to be solved at the weekend. You can always rely on them.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Detailing, description of nuances, objectivity in their approach. Understanding the customer's position, finding solutions, not a strict commitment to the technical task.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Absolutely, there is. We believe that Dunice company has learned a lot from the Vagonmaster project as well as we have. And that's right. Nevertheless, in our opinion, the company should pay attention to the training of implementation of electronic digital signature and related technical aspects of integration (with EDI operators) within the framework of similar projects.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Hello! My name is Asker and I'm founder and project manager of Orpage Orpage is a unique business platform, which combines several business areas:

  1. C2C - free bulletin board;
  2. B2C marketplace oriented to the domestic market of each region where the sellers are local shops (retail sales);
  3. B2B - wholesale between manufacturers of goods and businessmen;
  4. Electronic payment system;
  5. Business - Chat (ability to provide online conferences, create channels and conduct training and seminars, internal online correspondence, as on social networks);
  6. Built-in online games, where you can get bonuses and discounts in real shops of your city as a reward;
  7. E-currency (at the stage of development your own e-currency, which you can get as a reward in our Games. It can be paid in section B2C to 20% of the amount of goods).
OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DUNICE?

We're working for the first time and now it's the Orpage project. It's quite big and the development will take a long time.

What were your goals for this project?

I have long wanted to implement a platform in which several aspects of business are concentrated at once. It is planned that there will be both entrepreneurs and producers of goods and ordinary customers at the platform. I hope it will be an extremely interesting marketplace, which will be a success.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I started looking for the right company last year. First of all, I was interested in the company being open to discussing the project as it was at the idea stage. Many companies do not want to get into the business task, they just name the price, without going into the details and heart of the project itself, into its idea.

Most of the companies did not fit right away. It took me about three weeks to find it and I decided to start with Dunice.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We have already implemented most of the first block of the application, the message boards! There is account creation, profile, monitoring, search and viewing. The design of the first unit is also complete. Now the focus is on the mobile app. Right behind it is the development of the site.

What was the team composition?

Backend Node developer Mobile developer Project manager QA engineer UX/UI Designer

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

the project is being developed, it's big and I'm sure it will have a big impact on my business as a whole.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

When we only discussed the ideas themselves and the implementation of the guys gave me advice based on their own practice. Then we decided how we would interact, how the reporting system would be built and how I would learn about the next steps that we would take. This is really very convenient.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Perhaps the most impressive factor was the ability to enter into the client's position during the pandemic of coronavirus, despite the difficulties work is continuing.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I don't see a position that would be weak in the company. But as a strong company that strives for perfection sure will not rest on its laurels and will show excellent results.

Implementation of new projects allows us to successfully develop the tourist flow and open a huge world for our clients.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DUNICE?

We faced the task of creating an additional agency website, which has more than 500 offices. The site is designed for both tourists and contractors. The company that started this project before couldn't handle it, so we started looking for another company.

Our goal was to increase the loyalty of current agents and increase the attractiveness of the franchise network. The solution was to develop an internal portal (extranet) for franchisees.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We initially chose between five companies. Our main criteria were 1. a tourism expertise 2. a reliable team that has been working for a long time in the market 3. possibility of high-level service and support. After studying the offers, we chose Dunice, because they have such experience and work very fast with any questions.

The website is intended for tourists and contractors. Tourists can get all the details and information they need about tours and hotels, and can also book them on the website. Contractors have their own office page, where they can receive all the necessary information for their work (brand books, supporting information, invoices). First of all, the team determined the optimal composition to fit in the tight deadline. After that, we started to divide the work into sprints, do each sprint, check it for bugs. After each working day, the project manager prepared reports on the work done. Also, during the project, the guys gave their recommendations on how to make the project as attractive as possible. All tasks, that we had on the start were left in the past and now we continue to improve our project by adding new features.

What was the team composition?

We determined the optimal team composition for us. Two developers were involved, both of them Full-stack, which greatly simplifies the process. The architect was also additionally involved. A project manager who coordinates the team and ensures that all tasks are completed correctly on time. QA engineer who monitored the quality of code writing and tested it.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since the main task was to increase the attractiveness of our franchise network, I'm sure that goal was reached for 100%. This is exactly the result that we wanted to achieve and represented it at the very beginning of the project. Our partners also expressed positive feedback after the implementation of the project.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Yeah, that was great. The whole communication was about business. It's really nice to work with a competent team!

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Let me think... it's definitely their competence. The guys always know exactly how best to make some elements in the project and their professionalism is reflected in our project.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, everything is well.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Due to the success of their execution, DUNICE has since been engaged for further work. They’re an incredibly punctual bunch that delivers excellent designs. The quality of their work distinguishes them from other vendors. While they could improve their business consulting, they’re a stellar team.

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 general manager at Al-Mashaan Security. I oversee all operations, but mostly I manage our collaborations with international partners.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DUNICE?

We needed help in developing an application that would be linked to the platform that we’re concurrently creating.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We provided DUNICE with wireframes and documentation for the app. Their team provided business consulting to improve upon these prototypes; they pointed out ways to streamline functionalities and reduce errors.

After these discussions, they launched into the development phase. They utilized React Native and JavaScript for the frontend, and JS for the backend. The app’s functionalities include user login and signup, chat functionalities, and a booking feature. The booking function is quite complex, as it includes payment integrations and a scheduling calendar.

What is the team composition?

Initially, we worked with Inna (Head of Development, DUNICE), who I believe operates within the sales team. Once we started work, Alina (Head of Training, DUNICE) took over as our operations business consultant. There was also a backend developer, Evgeny (COO, DUNICE).

How did you come to work with DUNICE?

We found them through a freelancing platform. We interviewed a few other companies but ultimately decided to go forward with DUNICE.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $45,000 in total. The original contract increased from $30,000—$35,000 because the scope grew to include some of the new development that’s currently underway.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project began in September 2019 and we have an ongoing partnership. They’d finished the initial project, but we decided to extend the contract since we wanted more work to be done.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

DUNICE’s work has been great. We’re yet to launch, so the product hasn’t been seen by anyone but myself and some quality assurance (QA) testers. They designed an excellent frontend. Any bugs we found were quickly addressed, free of charge.

How did DUNICE perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re amazingly punctual. We were late on my own account at times. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re worth what they charge. We hired another company for the other project that we’re working on to see if there’d be any difference in deliverables; there was. DUNICE is awesome.

Are there any areas they could improve?

As far as the frontend goes, their work is amazing. I’m not a technical person, so I can’t speak to the infallibility of their code. There were a couple of miscommunications during their business consulting, which would be the one area they could improve. Other than that, I really don’t have any complaints.

They also were great at estimations. They were always on-point and whenever there was potential for overruns they alerted us well ahead of time. They also always met every deadline.

Their communication is impressive. Even giving them limited information, they were able to perform and provide results.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Feedback summary: 

The proof of concept developed by DUNICE exceeded all stakeholder expectations. Their teams' project management skills and communication contributed significantly to the success of the project, allowing progress to continue despite any challenges throughout the process. 

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I run a small software consulting firm that builds software products for clients.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DUNICE?

We wanted to explore building a cross-platform mobile app that could render and manage any type of standardized form definition.

What were your goals for this project?

Produce forms using standard JSON Form Schema, have them render in a cross-platform mobile app, collect the rests and make them available via REST API.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Found them via Upwork.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

I sent them a technical specification and they implemented in, sending me daily reports on their progress.

What was the team composition?

They had a custom acquisition person manage the interactions via Upwork and a technical specialist who clarified the specification. Then most of the work was a back and froth with the developer. Every few weeks a manager would contact me about the project status.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

This was mostly an experimental project. We built a stellar proof of concept that I hope to leverage into paid contracts that extend the code to meet specific client needs.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Project management was extremely professional. The daily reports were very useful and the oversight from management was welcomed. Communications were efficient and product. All communications were over email, which usually isn't my preference but it worked fine.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Great work product and great communication. What more could you ask for?

Are there any areas for improvement?

None.
