Feedback summary: 

GBKSOFT has done good work thus far, excelling specifically in their project management. Not only are they extremely communicative, but they are also adaptable and able to complete tasks within a short time frame. The quality of their products has also been noteworthy.

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 CEO of Clubhouse Ltd., an audio-based social network.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with GBKSOFT?

We have a core team of developers in Sweden, but we needed other developers on-demand.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

GBKSOFT has been working on native iOS apps using Swift and native Android apps using Kotlin. They’ve also helped with backend work in AWS load balancers, along with the whole architecture and scalability.

What is the team composition?

It depends on the task. They deploy the number of people needed for the task, which is 5–6 people on average per task. They also deploy 2–3 project managers.

How did you come to work with GBKSOFT?

They were recommended to me by a friend of mine.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent somewhere in the six figures. They’re the most price-efficient of all the development firms I’ve ever worked with.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them in February 2020, and our relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We do code reviews of everything they do. Everything they create is absolute; either it works, or it doesn’t. Their contribution is just as good as anybody else's at every level.

How did GBKSOFT perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management is really good. GBKSOFT is very flexible. If we have a long task list, they are very helpful in terms of delivering tasks within short timelines. 

They always respond at any time of day, which is surprising. I’ve never worked with a company as responsive as GBKSOFT. We primarily communicate via Slack, but we also use email, phone, and text.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their flexibility and quality are impressive.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I wish they had more resources. I understand that it’s difficult to perform at the level they are and that you can’t just expand while maintaining the same quality.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Communicate with the project managers. The more you communicate with them, the easier it is for them to help you.

To start with I needed assets to build a website and social media profiles. These are all creative assets (UI/UX screens, logos, icons, and branding). GBK provided a quote for this service and turned out with great speed and quality.

I am very happy with their service and wil continue to use them in the future.

I was assigned a project manager and designer.

GBKSOFT produced superlative deliverables that provide valuable information to guide internal operations and support sales processes. The team was receptive to feedback, adapting resources to ensure effective collaboration. They provided precise project outlines and exceeded expectations.

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 SOLJETS. We’re a private aircraft acquisition and brokerage.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with GBKSOFT?

We wanted to revitalize a website that was developed with an inflexible set of technologies that didn’t permit us much growth.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Their team built us a WordPress website from scratch. We had requirements and style guides, GBKSOFT put their interpretation into the designs, which they presented to us. Then, we vetted, scratched, and worked through the organization.

They put together a unique experience with features. Their team built a tool that effectively compares multiple aircrafts from a chosen airport to identify the different ranges of those planes. They also built a database backend. Their team built connectors between the proprietary system and our website.

They used a LAMP stack, so their team built a MySQL database architecture. Their team also used Elasticsearch and other established frameworks to build out the UI controls.

What is the team composition?

We worked with a project manager, a frontend developer, and two backend developers to build the proprietary database. We also worked with a project manager, a UI designer, and initially three developers on the website. We reduced the number of developers to one experienced and proficient developer who I kept on retainer by request.

How did you come to work with GBKSOFT?

We started by looking for a US-based local development shop to help us achieve our goals. We quickly realized through the design process and the early development phases that going that route would be cost-prohibitive.

We wanted a team that could design and develop our platform cost-efficiently with our future goals in mind. I started searching for offshore groups and came across GBKSOFT. We wanted to work with a development shop that used portable technologies, meaning if we stopped the relationship, we could take the product anywhere else. They passed our litmus test, so we gave them the project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started this project in January 2018 and wrapped up in March 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve used the website feature to show clients how we come to our conclusions during our sales pitches. We’ve used our backend tools to drum up the appropriate analysis and data research to help clients make decisions. We’ve seen success through the quality of their development. We’ve had the confidence to present these products live.

How did GBKSOFT perform from a project management standpoint?

Right off the bat, they hit the nail on the head in terms of budget, timeline, and deliverables without too much direction. We used JIRA, which is where they maintained all of their documentation and code repositories in conjunction with GitLab. We also used Trello and Slack as our project task and communication platforms.

We had an issue about halfway through the effort and made our concerns known to GBKSOFT’s leadership. Within a couple of weeks, they made internal changes and assigned us a new project manager who exceeded all of our expectations. She ended up closing the project.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their project estimations are one of their strongest points. At times, their process seemed over the top with the number of questions and iterations. It’s part of their process to give a timeline and cost estimates that they can meet. There were numerous times when they exceeded their estimations, giving us an early deliverable and kicking back cash. We’re definitely going to work with them again because of the quality of their work. They’re a really honest team. We didn’t feel that they were gaming us.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Everyone can improve but we’re overall pleased. They could improve their UX/UI design skills. Their team does a good job, but it’s not as refined as it could be.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

You’ve got to know what you want.  They have a pragmatic approach, so they’re not going to help you take a dream and put it into a concept. If asked, their team will think outside of the box. But they’re looking to take your ideas and put them into a technical concept.

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 chief of operations and finance for Nelson Precast Products LLC. We’re a small business in a niche industry. We manufacture highly custom construction materials.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with GBKSOFT?

There are less than 100 companies in the country that do anything even close to what we do. And that was that's been a big problem for us because we've had a very hard time finding business software that actually understands the logic of our very niche business.

Everything we’ve tried in the past as off-the-shelf and was unable to adapt to our workflow and didn’t have a great interface, so we brought on GBKSOFT to create a solution specifically for our operation.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I put together a document explaining what I wanted the software to do. Then, I spent several months working with their business analysis team and their project manager and they asked a lot of questions. We tuned that document into our specifications. Then, they developed a product that met those specifications.

The software they built has a built-in browser PDF editor that connects annotations in the PDF to database objects, and significantly reduces the number of steps our project managers need to do one key aspect of their job. This dramatically reduces possibilities for error because they’re only entering data once.

What is the team composition?

We had a project manager and a few different business analysts because there was some turnover.

How did you come to work with GBKSOFT?

My boss heard about them from a colleague. He told us that they were reasonably priced and did very good work, so we looked into them. We had an initial conversation with them, and I gave them a scope for the MVP. They said they could get it done in six months, and for a price that was comparable to an off-the-shelf software system.

How much have you invested with them?

The MVP cost just shy of $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Development lasted from August 2019–January 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The product is beautiful, seamless, quick, and responsive. Everyone I showed the product to was completely blown away. I’ve thought about the impact that this would have on our business for nearly a decade, and when my team finally saw it, they recognized how much easier it will make our jobs. It’s going to free us up to move away from data entry and enables us to do more productive work. We’ve been training people to roll it out in March, but because of COVID-19, our implementation schedule has been delayed and I don’t have data yet to reflect the impact it will have.

Throughout the specification process, they asked excellent questions. They saw potential issues and contingencies, and they took that rough document and refined that to create a more complete workflow.

Some of the ideas I had were off the wall, but they went with it. They took on some unusual challenges and they created a solution that no one has made before.

How did GBKSOFT perform from a project management standpoint?

Jira and Confluence were the main project management software we used to communicate. That’s where all our specifications were written up. Their management was top-notch. I’ve worked with people in various industries, but GBKSOFT is good. They can be the single point of contact with the contact and can make sure that their team and our team have all the information we need. They kept us informed while keeping everything on schedule. Overall, their project management was absolutely excellent.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their price is very competitive. On top of that, they have an excellent project management team. They do wonderful work, and everything they built met our specifications exactly. Their design team is excellent—the program is beautiful.  Across the board, they provided a service I would have expected to pay 2–3 times as much for.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The turnover in the business analyst position was challenging to deal with. As a result, there were a few times where I had to explain our business logic all over again. That was a minor frustration, though. I would never hesitate to recommend them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It probably helps to have someone with a technical background on your internal team. I do think that accelerated our process. Be prepared, too, to have someone be responsive to them. They’re very productive and will give you specifications and designs every day that require your proposal. So, you need someone responsive to prevent the project from slowing down.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a Senior Business Development Specialist in the fun newly developed company that is set to change the way people do their laundry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire GBKSOFT?

I needed to develop a solution for both iOS and Android devices. So I hired GBKSOFT team to do front-end coding for my laundry & dry cleaning app.

What were your goals for this project?

To get an app delivered fast.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I contacted GBKSOFT team after I’ve seen the blog on their website. I have scrolled through a few articles and was quite impressed by their quality. These guys seemed to be professionals who know what they are doing and talking about. So I made the decision to contact GBKSOFT team and see where the conversation would lead us. The team turned out to be friendly, open-minded and had an experience with the projects similar to mine. And that is exactly why I decided to go with GBKSOFT.

Describe the project in detail.

My initial idea was to create an app that will help to simplify ordering laundry pick-up and delivery services and reduce the time users spend on routine order making process. So my application should allow users to create an account and easily manage it whenever they need laundry & dry cleaning services. Clients should just drop-off their clothes that require cleaning and use the app to place an order in a couple of clicks. It is as simple as that!

What was the team composition?

As I have already mentioned, I needed GBKSOFT to perform front-end development. So I have cooperated with a bunch of high-class specialists such as iOS developers, Android developers, QAs, business analysts, scrum masters, and designers. Everyone involved in the development of my app was very understanding and quite dedicated.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Fast responses.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was well-organized and both teams successfully accomplished all goals. I would also like to note that the communication was very effective. GBKSOFT team contacted the team of backend developers and they cope with all challenges together without me being involved (and this saved my time greatly). The work of GBKSOFT designer also deserves a compliment. She reviewed my old designs and offered a new concept with great UI and UX that made my app even more intuitive and user friendly.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

GBKSOFT stands out from competitors due to the high quality and transparency of their work. Their estimations were precise and took into account every possible detail. So during the development process I have always been aware of the stage at what my project was, and I knew how much time it would take for a team to accomplish a certain task. GBKSOFT has many advantages and one of them is the presence of a qualified business analyst who helped to save money on some development stages and create a solution keeping the end-user in mind.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I cannot suggest any improvements simply because I am not an employee of a software development company. The only thing I can say is that GBKSOFT is a great company which unites many different professionals and I would like to cooperate with them further if I have any new projects in the future.

Feedback summary: 

The app's update was completed quickly and satisfactorily, which made the app more stable than ever. They swiftly addressed any issues and responded to all queries despite the time zone differences.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the owner of a mobile application that was designed to assist Military Aviators in studying for their designated helicopter. The application was designed to combine educational resources in one location.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire GBKSOFT?

I hired them to design an extended feature in the application that they had previously designed.

What were your goals for this project?

My goals were to add on an extension into the application and remove some features that I had previously requested. Most importantly it needed to be a stable application.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I had chosen them back in 2015 to originally create the application based on their communication and understanding of my intent. They were able to successfully put my ideas to paper and then into a digital form.

Describe the project in detail.

The project was designed to add another helicopter that was needed. There had been a few features that I had paid them to create that I needed to be removed in this latest update. Their job was to recreate features already present in the app and implement them in an organized manner.

What was the team composition?

I initially spoke with a liaison of sorts who then passed me off to the Project Manager. The Project Manager spoke with me about concerns and questions that the developers had. This individual served as not only a medium between my ideas and their implementation but also as a linguist as there could have been somewhat of a language barrier.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Within less than a month the team had successfully created the update to my liking. It is the most stable version of the app that I have seen and was done in an extremely timely manner. Any initial issues that may have risen were addressed immediately.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

I was very happy with the workflow between myself and their team. Responses were addressed quickly especially considering the time zone differences.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

What I found most impressive was their willingness to correct any shortcomings. If there was something that needed to be addressed it was immediately corrected.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can not identify any areas for improvement at this time. They are a great company and I will continue to work with them on my mobile application.

We needed to be able to take a multi-step confusingly technical process and simplify it into 3 simple steps that anyone can enjoy using.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I've worked with GBK several years ago and had an amazing experience. It was a no-brainer to come back again.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

I provided GBK with an outline of the projects requirements. GBK put together a thorough documentation and together we refined every detail. GBK was responsible for everything from documentation, feasibility, design, development, and deployment.

What was the team composition?

While I was just one person, GBK had multiple experts assigned to my team. Designer, Business Analyst, Frontend and Backend Developers, Project Manager...

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

As always, GBK did an amazing job. My clients are amazed at just how well this was designed and developed.

Feedback summary: 

The team delivered a fully-functioning application that’s received downloads and positive feedback from users. Their flexibility and reliability during the development pushed the project along smoothly. They utilized project management tools to make the most of the remote relationship.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

My company’s main product is a productivity app that helps people track their progress and schedule reviews through the Talmud, which is the Jewish anthology of customs and stories. The solution tracks your progress and motivates users to work through this daunting literature. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with GBKSOFT?

Similar programs were only available in the form of booklets that could be easily worn or lost. I wanted to add a progress tracker and turn it into an app. Their team assisted me in building the solution.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I was inspired to create the app because of my appreciation for the program. There was a particular exercise app with a UI/UX that I wanted to emulate. I drew out some sketches and wireframes based on that information. Additionally, I drafted a few Microsoft Word documents detailing what I wanted to accomplish and discussed the project with them. They didn’t have a Jewish background, so I explain that aspect of the project to them as well.

From there, they took my wireframes, provided feedback, shared their ideas, and created the mobile app. It’s available for iOS and Android. 

What is the team composition?

I was most often in touch with a project manager and a business analyst through Google Hangouts and phone calls. We also had contact with a sales representative and a designer. The developers operated behind the scenes, so we dealt with them indirectly.  

How did you come to work with GBKSOFT?

I originally wanted to work with a company that was Jewish and easily understood the concepts I was working with. After reaching out to them, they seemed to be too busy to take on the work. They recommended GBKSOFT to me. I got in touch with them, and they turned out to offer their services would be cheaper than expected.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $40,000 on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from March–December 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Overall, the app has received pretty positive feedback from our users. There have been a few crashes and glitches along the way, but that can happen so I can’t complain. Throughout the development, they were very patient with my occasional indecisiveness, making changes when I needed them. They did a good job of staying on top of that.

How did GBKSOFT perform from a project management standpoint?

We used Confluence, which I appreciated. That helped us stay organized. Our teams met using Google Hangouts, which allowed us to communicate. We also employed Invision and Google Doc to enhance our collaboration. Otherwise, we used email for day-to-day communication.  

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re very transparent and great communicators. Realizing that I didn’t have a tech background, they were willing to explain industry terms and their processes to give me a stronger understanding of their work. It was nice of them to do that.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Toward the end of the development, they started taking on other projects and giving us a little less time than normal. We became less efficient during that time, which was a little bit frustrating because we were almost done with the work at that point.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If I had my plan together from the beginning, things would’ve gone more smoothly. Things slow down when you have indecision on your end. With clear requirements, they’ll move through the work efficiently.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The team worked diligently to understand the context in relation to which the product was developed - and gave valuable insights with regard to design and the tech stack employed. Their understanding of AWS and how to leverage that resource was invaluable.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Project management comprised of two weekly calls with the project manager. The developers were brought into those meetings on a case by case basis.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The communication between GBK Soft and me was excellent - facilitated by the project manager. She knew when to escalate and when to delegate in order to achieve the desired outcome as quickly as possible.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There were a number of changes to the project manager in the early days of the project which resulted in a loss of continuity. However, GBK did appoint a higher calibre project manager in the end which was very beneficial.
