The Review
Feedback summary: 

fjorge was organized and responsive, completely difficult tasks on a tight timeline. Although the price was a bit high, they were honest and hardworking, making them a reliable partner that produced effective results.

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 a senior vice president at Fusion92, a digital product agency that focuses mostly on the financial technology (fintech) space. We also do manufacturing and consumer packaged goods (CPG).

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with fjorge?

We needed a tech partner to work with our internal team to provide web product dev support.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

fjorge worked on every aspect of our project, from planning to requirements gathering to product deployment. They documented the project and worked on the technical architecture, building a product that would have a secure and consistent market.

The app they built consumes receipt data, meaning it has an optical character recognition (OCR) component. The receipt information in consumed via the web-based app which has containers for both Android and iOS. From there, it’s tied to technology that unlocks the software by scanning a receipt. The app is white labeled for a current end client, but we’re exploring options to expand the scope beyond the one client.

What is the team composition?

We worked with a project manager, head architect, and four developers who cycled through, depending on the skill set we needed.

How did you come to work with fjorge?

Our head of technology and my old business partner had both worked with them before, so I knew they’d be a good fit.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $80,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from October–December 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve piloted the product at a few different stores and gotten positive results. The app is good quality and scales well, consuming receipt from various stores.

How did fjorge perform from a project management standpoint?

They were organized and attentive, completing tasks on time. We used Jira to manage tasks. For our last project, we gave them four weeks to complete quite a heavy workload, and they were able to deliver.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were honest and easy to work with. The team worked hard and delivered a good product. Their price was probably slightly higher than average, but I was willing to spend more on a partner I knew I could trust.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We didn’t have any problems, but, as they grow, they need to make sure they scale appropriately.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Listen to them because they know what they’re doing.
