Feedback summary: 

The improved website has already increased page views and follower counts, attracting positive feedback from business partners and customers alike. DVC Solutions Ltd.’s around-the-clock availability, proactive suggestions, and reliable workflow continue to add value.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a marketing team member at an auto-parts company in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Our company has about 150 employees. We supply garages and other auto-parts stores with imported goods through our network of 19 retailers and a wholesale branch. I manage our website and social networks, graphic design, and promotional items.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DVC Solutions Ltd.?

Originally, we hired DVC Solutions to design and develop an official website in accordance with specific instructions from our corporate management. Since then, they’ve provided technical support and just agreed to redesign our website.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a modern look with new features that we could easily update; the platform also had to be user-friendly.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

My team searched for local web designers based on recommendations from other clients and friends. None of these designers met our requirements. We were close to giving up on the idea when our CEO received promotional mail from DVC Solutions. Once we decided to check them out, they showed how well they understood our requirements and proposed a fair price. That made our decision easy.

Describe the project in detail.

We started with a short series of discovery meetings to discuss our requirements. In under two weeks, we received mockups and designs for the homepage. They were proactive and offered excellent ideas, so we finalized the design with no trouble at all. Additionally, they proposed concepts for additional pages, implemented the business map they developed (which functions similarly to Google Maps), and suggested items for future consideration.

I acted as the contact person on for my team. I was incredibly pleased by their understanding of our business concept, strategies, and deliverables.

What was the team composition?

DVC Solutions was just starting their business when we met, so we communicated primarily with their present CEO, Bojan, who passed on the tasks to his team members. I knew their names but and duties but didn’t need to contact them. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Only a month after our new website launched, DVC Solutions was hired by our biggest business partner. They liked our site so much that they wanted to have something similar. The redesigned contact form brought many new followers to our business, many of whom continue to share positive feedback.

Now, five years later, the time has come to redesign the website. We have decided to trust the same vendor with this task.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They are reliable, punctual, agreeable, and always available by mail or phone. Their company has grown during our collaboration, and they’ve communicated professionally at every stage. All of the team members strike the right balance between professionalism and friendliness. They’re a pleasure to work with.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They have the best combination of knowledge, experience, and patience. I was amazed by their willingness to explain things that interested me as a website administrator.

Are there any areas for improvement?

As always, some things could have gone better. But, at the time, the work was done to our satisfaction.

Feedback summary: 

Because of DVC’s help, the app is a finalist in a competition for an acceleration program. A few customers have already started using the app. The team’s expertise  helped make the experience smooth and stress-free. They easily understood the vision of the project and implemented it.

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 owner of OrdeX, a mobile and web-based B2B networking platform. It facilitates connections between hotels, restaurants, and cafés with suppliers for ordering, delivery, and tracking.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DVC Solutions?

I’ve identified a lot of communication problems between these shop owners and their suppliers. I don’t have IT experience, but I had an idea to solve these problems. I approached DVC Solutions to create a solution.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I provided them a general set of requirements, based on which the team architected and developed all the necessary components. DVC Solutions built my mobile and web app which connects B2B collaborators in one cloud-based platform.

Venue owners in Bosnia typically have to make individual phone orders to their suppliers. The app we’ve built gathers all the suppliers in one place, allowing users to pick the products they want and schedule deliveries. They’re able to track orders and receive notifications on the estimated delivery time.

We have only built an Android version so far, which accounts for 90% of mobile devices on the Bosnian market. We’re starting work on an iOS version.

What is the team composition?

I worked directly with the CEO, their business developer, and a project manager. I had a couple of meetings with the developers, but the main contact was with the company’s principals.

How did you come to work with DVC Solutions?

I am based in the same city as their team. I received a few recommendations from some of their past clients. I contacted one other company, but DVC Solutions gave me much more confidence.

How much have you invested with them?

The total cost of their work has been around $70,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with DVC Solutions in January 2017. The iOS version is expected to launch in a couple of months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app has launched and is being used by a couple of customers so far. We have an ongoing effort to onboard suppliers.

They helped me apply to an acceleration program held by a large Hungarian oil company. We were one of the eight finalists out of the 70 competing companies, mainly because of DVC Solutions’ recommendations and work.

How did DVC Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

DVC Solutions delivered 95% of our sprints on time, and some of the delays were caused by a lack of funding on my part. They have good project management skills and market knowledge. Our offices are close by, so we were able to have frequent face-to-face meetings. We also communicated through phone and email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They brought a level of simplicity to their approach and didn’t waste time on convoluted solutions. The team understood my requirements quickly, without the need for additional discussion.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Onboarding more developers would help them develop faster. I didn’t have a crucial timeline, though.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Keep requests simple in order to get accurate estimates from the development team.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The app has been downloaded and is in use by many parents. It is stable, and feedback so far is positive. DVC’s technical execution was flawless. They went above and beyond by consulting on product development. They are a well-organized team dedicated to completing quality work within deadline.

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 co-founder of a startup that specializes in parental control. Our app gives parents the ability to track, manage, and control a child’s behavior online. Parents control activities on the child’s phone by connecting to the child’s device from the parent’s account.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DVC Solutions Ltd.?

We needed to develop an Android version of our app. The main challenge was from the technical side. It was quite advanced to be able to use the accessibility functions and control another device via a parent’s phone.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had the idea of what we wanted and how to do it, but we didn’t have the visual identity of the solution. We approached them with the request to do a complete UI and UX, the branding of the solution, and the technical implementation. We cooperated throughout the entire project and still cooperate on the app updates and upgrades. Our plan is to develop an iOS version shortly with them.

After a parent initially connects their phone to their child’s phone, a parent can see the child’s location in real-time and the location history record showing where the child was in the last few days. The parent can also allow or prohibit the use of apps and websites, as well as schedule the use of apps. They can also create alarms and reminders and see the battery level, SMS, calls, and contact list on the phone. We are now publishing the geofence feature allowing parents to draw an area on the map and mark it as a safe area. If the child leaves that area, the parent will receive a notification. They integrated the geofence and the app usage so parents can set which apps can be used in which geofence area. They can mark an area as school, and if the child is there, then he/she can use the permitted apps.

What is the team composition?

We were in touch with the CEO, a project manager, and the technical team.

How did you come to work with DVC Solutions Ltd.?

They are local, and I had heard of them from various sources. When I started my project, I collected 4–5 offers from different companies, and DVC seemed like the most promising option.

How much have you invested in them?

We have spent around $80,000–$90,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them in November 2016 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The free version of the app is live in the Google Play Store. The premium version of the app will be published soon. We haven’t made any strong marketing campaigns yet, but we have just under 5,000 downloads of the app and approximately 1,600 active users. Our retention rate is very high around 34%–35%.

When it comes to the stability, our metrics are very good. Google says it should be under 1%, and we are at 0.3%, which is very good. We have had positive feedback from our users and the current average rating in the Play Store is 4.1.

How did DVC Solutions Ltd. perform from a project management standpoint?

We had regular meetings with the technical team and the project manager where we discussed the project according to Scrum methodology. We mostly used Trello, and we also used Jira briefly as well.

They performed very well and I am highly satisfied with their services. They were helpful as product developers, consulting us about what features would be good and not good to have in the app. They gave us a lot of very useful advice. On the technical side, everything was perfect. They delivered everything within the deadline.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are highly flexible and gave us the freedom to make changes. They have a creative approach and way of thinking.

I had a great experience working with them. They are highly disciplined and organized, and they deliver within the agreed deadlines and according to the conditions we set up initially.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There is always room for improvement. They mentioned they had two junior developers for the iOS development. I would suggest hiring a mid-level iOS developer, but juniors can start the project. It would be good to have someone more experienced in that field.

If they had more people, we could finish sooner.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

My advice would be to know what you want in the beginning.
