The Review
Feedback summary: 

As an outsourced team, ELITEX serves as a cost-effective development option. They have proven to be a reliable vendor that is capable of finding, training, and implementing the appropriate resources to meet project requirements. Their experience with an array of technology is a definite strength.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the director of Peerwith, a marketplace that matches academic researchers seeking support for their work with experts who can help with publishing services.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ELITEX?

ELITEX provides outsourced development services when we look to expand our platform or add features.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

ELITEX currently serves as a frontend developer for our website, which features Elasticsearch and utilizes HTML, CSS, and Angular. In the past, they’ve also provided backend development work using Node.js, Express, and MongoDB. Our website is deployed using AWS.

What is the team composition?

Our team size changes based on the workload. We currently work with one full-time frontend developer, but over the years, we’ve worked with 5–6 developers for backend tasks, DevOps, and testing.

How did you come to work with ELITEX?

ELITEX responded to our message on Guru.com. We tried multiple freelancers and other companies, but ELITEX provided the most consistent work, so we decided to stick with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about €100,000 (approximately $112,800 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We hired them in 2017 and have worked with them ever since.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Working with ELITEX has been more cost-effective than hiring internal resources. The quality of their work is significantly higher than what I would be able to find if I hired within the Netherlands for the same price.

How did ELITEX perform from a project management standpoint?

My CTO handles the bulk of the project management responsibilities. We communicate online through Pivotal Tracker, Slack, and Skype, but it’s almost as if they work in the same office. Our communication methods are quite useful.

What did you find most impressive about them?

ELITEX can quickly scale the team up or down to meet our needs. They’re very flexible in that regard. If we tell them we need specific resources for a project next month, they recruit the people that we need, and it only takes a few days to get them up to speed. ELITEX prepares and mentors all of their employees well.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, we’ve had a positive experience with them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If future clients structure their engagements as we have structured ours—not having ELITEX control the project management—it is critical that they have proper QA measures in place aside from what ELITEX provides. We check all of their work before we commit to implementing it.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The ELITEX team is still providing enhancements and updates for the platform, continuing to demonstrate their excellent technical skill and expertise. They communicate well, maintaining a smooth workflow and offering fantastic value for money.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I was the director and a business partner of a cybersecurity company that focused on next-generation technologies, both at the end-point and network level.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ELITEX?

First of all, we needed help with technology development. We had the code in place for the main brains of the platform, but we still needed experienced engineers that we could trust and rely on for the rest.

We’d used services like Upwork for many of our contractors, but we wanted a long-term partner to help us as we grow. At the same time, we didn’t want to pay exorbitant prices to a specialized company.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They got involved in several parts of the work, across multiple projects. We disseminated the technology to be back- and frontend-based.

From a frontend perspective, we were able to enhance the product and get it to market quickly. They touched on different facets of it and gave us an idea of how it could be improved. This second pair of experienced eyes really helped us fine-tune the technology.

On the backend, the technology needed to talk to our cloud operation. ELITEX helped us build not only the cloud part in conjunction with our own engineers and scientists but made the connections with the frontend technology. At the same time, they helped us create a graphical UI from scratch. As a cybersecurity company, we opted for fully custom solutions.

What is the team composition? 

We had one main contact, who was a C++ genius. There was also a team assigned to the UI development and some people building out and maintaining the network solution using Python. Our chief scientist was heavily involved in terms of the technologies used and provided oversight.

How did you come to work with ELITEX?

We had countless interviews with engineers, including the principal at ELITEX. I could converse freely with him, and he understood what our goals were. He was also open and willing to allow us a paid trial period with no contractual obligations. 

We weren’t willing to throw money out on engineers that delivered sloppy, incomplete work, so we tested the waters, and were given a part-time resource. We were happy with what we achieved there, so we decided to hire them, and then a second, third, and fourth resource.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost per year was $150,000 or just below. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them around 2016. The project completed in 2018, but we continued working with them on enhancements and updates based on new OS releases. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We didn’t actively track statistics, but ELITEX was superior to other engineers in every sense of the word. We were able to converse with their principal by either email, text, or phone calls whenever required, which made a big difference. They’re a professional outfit, not a team of freelancers working from their homes, which was what we needed.

How did ELITEX perform from a project management standpoint?

They were very responsive. Although they managed the payroll of the resources we hired, we maintained contact as though those people were employed by us. We were able to develop methods for storing code securely and then using it for any new releases and changes. That meant we always had something to reference for documentation later on. 

Their owner was always available to help with business items. We were based in different parts of the world, which meant that we could do our work during the day, and they’d continue working throughout the night. Building products from scratch is a slow battle, so it was good to achieve things that even multibillion-dollar businesses struggle with, at a fraction of the cost.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The value for money was the most important item for me. I’m sure there are comparable businesses out there, but I felt that ELITEX was good for what we needed, as a small, bootstrapped business.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We did change one engineer, but it was more to do with our budget. They came back and helped us find the right person quickly.
