Feedback summary: 

Their lead generation services were extremely successful, permitting the company to direct their marketing and increase their revenue. Their client-centric service ensures they meet the required needs perfectly, while they always solving any issues quickly and professionally.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Epico Travel is a travel agency in Moscow. I’m the CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Fayrix?

We had agents, but we didn’t have enough clients to start a company. We needed help with lead generation.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided digital lead generation services for us. They developed a system for people who are interested in trips. That involved collecting and processing open data for one of the popular touristic areas' websites. They extracted the user's location and hotel features information. The source data mainly contained stacks of text, text mining technology, and NeuroNet that were used to classify all the data into VIP or non-VIP travelers. The data was then used for our sales and marketing activities.

What is the team composition?

There were two dedicated managers and some big data specialists.

How did you come to work with Fayrix?

A friend of mine recommended them. I had a personal meeting to discuss my problem and they offered a solution very quickly.

How much have you invested with them?

$100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from December 2016 until May 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re still earning money with the approach they developed. The system helps me get new clients and obtain data in the travel market. We're able to work with VIP travelers and have data on useful information such as location and hotel features information.

How did Fayrix perform from a project management standpoint?

We’re completely satisfied with their service level. We had a dedicated manager who helped solve our issues. We used email, Skype, and in-person meetings.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I liked their client-centric approach.

Feedback summary: 

The completed application functions smoothly and was exhibited at a large industry event with no issues or bugs arising. The team built the product well, following an agile methodology and working in organized sprints, while quickly and carefully addressing any issues that arose.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Mail.ru Group is the largest IT company in Russia. I'm a product manager there.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Fayrix?

We were working on a cloud project for the company.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Fayrix helped us build a data science model for machine recognition. The solution is part of a B2B solution for companies that require computer vision, specifically for locations with too many visitors for employees to track manually. We provided documentation to their team and a pilot integration we had made in the form of a web app.

The app they built is used for analyzing photos made during exhibitions. A user can use a computer or a mobile device to take a picture of their face, based on which our system will identify all photos featuring them.

What is the team composition?

We worked with three data scientists, an architect, a full-stack developer, and a project manager from Fayrix’s team.

How did you come to work with Fayrix?

I saw their LinkedIn profile and visited their website. They had good pricing, so I gave them a test project. They delivered a working result, so I chose them for a collaboration.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost of their work has been around $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them around February 2018. We've also developed another project, which involves video recognition and are prolonging the contract.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The application is currently functional and people are able to obtain photo matches through it. We showcased it at an exhibition in Moscow, where around 1,000 people came to our stands and interacted with our computers. The app successfully sent them the pictures afterward, and we haven’t had any significant bugs or issues. Our developers haven’t said anything bad about the team or the code they produced.

How did Fayrix perform from a project management standpoint?

They're using the agile methodology, with two-week sprints. They typically invite us to their sprint planning sessions over Skype. We're working remotely as it hasn’t been necessary for the project to meet them in person. We’ve been able to integrate their data-science work into the project. The work was done fast and well.

Jira is the corporate project management system in our company, and it was comfortable for me to use it with them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’ve been able to resolve any issue we’ve had, quickly and without the need to modify our contract. They're an open-minded team, which has made it a pleasure to work with them.

With Fayrix’s help, flyers can now feel less anxious and more informed about their flights. The app functions well and is in use across the globe. The team did a great job of delivering the app on time and managing the project smoothly. They impressed with their helpful, problem-solving orientation.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a managing director for a mobile and web platform that acts as a personal in-flight guide. The app was developed primarily for anxious passengers. It provides real-time explanations of everything happening during a flight like aircraft movement, unfamiliar sounds, and passenger sensations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Fayrix?

We needed help with app development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We worked together to develop our iOS and Android app. They helped us with all the technical questions. We collect professional aviation data beforehand, analyze it, translate it into human language, and present it to the user. While onboard the airplane, the app uses telephone device sensors to detect the flight stage. Algorithms translate the information that was collected beforehand and provide it to the user at the right moment, even when the phone isn’t connected to GPS or Wi-Fi.

They helped with graphic design and UX design. When the customer downloads their flight information, we upload the information about their flight. The app provides the calculated route on a color-coded turbulence map so the passenger knows what to expect in route. They receive messages while on the airplane explaining how flaps work, why there’s turbulence, and why the light is flashing before taking off. It also provides points of interest they’re flying over. It’s also available in different languages.

What is the team composition?

We had a couple of developers for iOS and Android, the engineers, and a project manager. We had a project manager on our side as well.

How did you come to work with Fayrix?

They were recommended to us as a reliable software developer.

How much have you invested with them?

The app has helped anxious flyers to improve their travel experience. We’ve done a good job providing that help to people.

How did Fayrix perform from a project management standpoint?

The process has been smooth. They answer all our questions. We use email and phone calls to communicate.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re very receptive and very professional. They’re always ready to offer solutions.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. We’re quite satisfied with everything.

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

The Moscow IT Department just informed us that the first application has about 2 million users. In our city, around 1,000,200 people use the application. Our other applications serve a small audience of several hundred users, and the single mobile platform is used by about 100 users within our company.

I haven’t had any negative feedback. We have a very good working relationship with Fayrix.

How did Fayrix perform from a project management standpoint?

We used Skype for video, audio, and chat. Communication is comfortable. The team has weekly progress reports and daily briefings through Skype. It was quite transparent.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are always online, and we are always in touch with them. Their work is transparent, which is important when working with resources outside the company.

Are there any areas they could improve?

All the guys are professional.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Give them a try. If you have some doubts, ask for a small trial project. You’ll see that they can do what you want.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The well-received app provides users easy access to the market's response to their product. Fayrix' solutions-oriented approach puts customers at ease. Their creativity, knowledge, and technical ability are hallmarks of their high-quality work.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a product owner at a company that develops products to analyze social media and mass media. Our system collects data from a wide range of sources and aggregates the information so it can be analyzed. We produce messaging and infographics to help our clients make sense of the information, such as how their brand works in the market and any negative feedback.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Fayrix?

We wanted to develop a mobile application for our customers. We didn’t have an iOS developer in-house and we needed to develop an app quickly because our managers wanted to see the product as soon as possible.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We wrote documentation for Fayrix because we wanted to reproduce our web system in a mobile application. They provided us several design mockups to choose from and then began developing the application. The iOS application allows users to click on reports and see a list of messages. The user also sees the mood of each message: positive, negative, or neutral. There are several graphics that show how many messages about the brand appear in the news over a selected period of time. There is also a search function to filter messages by keyword.

What is the team composition?

There were five people on the team. There were two iOS developers, a designer, a project manager, and a test specialist.

How did you come to work with Fayrix?

Our search identified several companies. We sent them all a simple pilot project as a test. We sent them our idea and asked them to provide mockups and a short description of how it should be done. We chose Fayrix because their submission was really good.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between $60,000-$70,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them between April–August 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The quality of the application was great and our managers were satisfied. We don’t have many users, however, because our company decided to focus on the web-based system and not iOS. Fayrix did great work and provided good results.

How did Fayrix perform from a project management standpoint?

It was a really easy, comfortable relationship with the project manager. We discussed features together and he and his team helped with some ideas. There were no issues with communication. We used Jira and Skype to stay in touch every day.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They made me very comfortable because they clearly understood what they’re doing. Sometimes I didn’t know how we could solve a problem, but Fayrix always helped us identify solutions.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I didn’t have any problems with them. It was a short project and they did well.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Fayrix can develop good quality products in a short period of time.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The completed solution was well received and led to an ongoing partnership with the satisfied client. The communication throughout the development was excellent, and the team handled a demanding client professionally.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a software development company. We mainly work on software for remote workforces, such as mobile applications for government offices. I’m the project manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Fayrix?

We needed a partner to help with our mobile applications. We had a difficult project with road police. It was challenging because they had a very complicated workflow. We needed a partner who could do good analytical work with the client and provide UI that suited their needs. There were many unique requirements.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The software is for officers to access internal databases from the mobile devices. They could then issue different documents like fines, and search for past fines or vehicle information. The application helps them do their job more efficiently, while getting information quickly and securely. They used Java to make the mobile app.

What is the team composition?

There were two software engineer developers and one QA tester. I was the project manager on the project.

How did you come to work with Fayrix?

A colleague, who had worked with them before, referred them to me. We had a talk with them and they were good in terms of price and quality.

How much have you invested with them?

$20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from September 2011 until December 2013.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The project was successful and the client implemented the solution for 1,000 officers. We still work with this client and they’re happy with our solution.

How did Fayrix perform from a project management standpoint?

We had Skype calls with the team every day to manage the scope and review the results. Sometimes we had client calls so they could explain the requirements. We used a scrum methodology, with Jira for task management and tracking.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The client was quite difficult because the police officers had their own opinions on software development. Fayrix handled this pressure well.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

My impression of them is very good.
