The Review
Feedback summary: 

Through GlobalLuxSoft’s flexible support, multiple initiatives with minimal specifications have finished on time and demonstrated outstanding quality. The team’s broad expertise, open communication, and eagerness to deliver functional solutions continue to boost productivity. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I run DAF Services, a consultancy company, where I offer mostly UX and project management. I work with a client on a specific product and figure out how to build it in terms of matching their needs to the product that they’re developing and determining the skills required to deliver the product in the end. I usually use outside development firms. Because I have a good record of working with GlobalLuxSoft, I’ve worked with them on many occasions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with GlobalLuxSoft?

I work with early-stage companies that are often startups. In general, there’s not enough time to produce extensive documentation. So, what we try to do is find an inexpensive solution for a client, prototype it very fast, and determine if the prototypes are really addressing the client’s goals or the needs of the potential market.

Speed is a major asset of GlobalLuxSoft, and all of the people I’ve worked with have been absolutely great at taking a minimal set of specifications, asking the right questions, and delivering a more complete product than described originally. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We built the backend for a startup client in contract management. We had minimal specifications but no time to figure them out. GlobalLuxSoft worked very well with us in terms of fleshing out the technical specifications, as I was mostly working on the UI design and was the overall product lead with this client. They were able to develop a frontend on top of the backend that we’re developing that addressed all of the client’s specifications and more.

What skills were you looking for in a team?

I’m fairly agnostic in terms of backend technologies. I’ve worked with teams that are more on the Laravel side of things. I’ve also worked with Django teams. Because I support early stage companies, I’m not trying to dive into a specific technology stack but rather to create something nearly from scratch. Most of the projects that I’ve worked with GlobalLuxSoft have been in Ruby on Rails. We’ve also done some Node development. I know that they have other services, but these are the stacks that we’ve done. On the frontend, we’ve mostly used Angular and sometimes View. In my conversations with the team, we’ve spoken about React but haven’t been that excited about it. Also, specific team members do have quite a bit of expertise in Angular. When we were testing a project, we decided to see what View could deliver for us, and the team did half the project in that. On my end, I use Decouple backend frameworks and quick frontend prototypes, mostly in Angular.

How many resources have been assigned to your project?

Usually, I try to work with them in putting together a team of a backend developer, a frontend developer, and a QA person. We usually end up going with Eastern European resources. The prices are fairly low, so I can actually afford a dedicated QA person. For shorter timelines, we add another person on the backend. Because I have a little expertise in the frontend, we generally don’t add an extra person there. Depending on the project, we may also bring in someone who exclusively creates templates in HTML and CSS.

How did you come to work with GlobalLuxSoft?

They were recommended to me. I was looking at several vendors in Eastern Europe. I’m from Russia, so most of my technical networks tend that way. It’s not an issue culturally for me to work with teams from Russia and Ukraine. I’m pretty aware of the price gap. The specific project that we worked on was a startup, and we were way over budget and developing with 2 US firms. GlobalLuxSoft rescued the project at the last minute.

How much have you invested with GlobalLuxSoft?

I’ve spent between $50,000 and $200,000 per year with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in November of 2015, and the work is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

They helped with a project that was crashing and burning; they completely turned it around. Since then, I’ve trusted them with several projects where I had less of a spec than I wanted. The project management side of me gets very nervous when that happens. They can put together a team that really supports me in those efforts.

Often, when I’m dealing with software companies that hide behind the spec, I get into a tug of war because something wasn’t specified. When it’s a startup situation or you’re trying to knock out prototypes quickly, it’s important to have a flexible team. GlobalLuxSoft really respects deadlines. Whenever I work through the weekend, they’re right there with me.

How did GlobalLuxSoft perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re my A-team. When I have projects that are pushed for time and I’m nervous about something, I always reach out to them. We use mostly Trello to communicate. I wouldn’t quite call myself a 1-man shop, but most of the time I am. I try not to get too far into standardized Agile practices. They’re helpful in a larger setting.

Generally, we have standups that depend on the deadline. We mostly do tracking with Trello. At times, Trello’s not enough just in terms of getting a more granular view of the project; at that point, we use spreadsheets. I’ve been in situations where Agile becomes a religion and nothing gets done.

Are there any areas GlobalLuxSoft could improve?

I can’t think of anything at this point. The communication is very open. The few times I had issues, I’ve been able to address the team directly, and they were solved.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

GlobalLuxSoft demonstrated technical expertise and close attention to details. They proved highly scalable and delivered bug-free code within a limited timeframe. The team at GlobalLuxSoft was professional, organized, and communicated quite clearly.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the CTO of a startup in the manufacturing space. We are a marketplace connecting manufacturers with CNC [computer numerical control] machine shops to make parts.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with GlobalLuxSoft?

We needed a total rebuild of our platform from the bottom up, with little hand-holding from our main office.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They were the primary development team for our product. Andrii [CEO, GlobalLuxSoft] and his team took over all web development efforts, from project management and development to QA. They did continuous development in 2-week sprints. The duration of the project wasn't time bound, as they were able to stay on board to continue building on and improving our application.

For our project, GlobalLuxSoft used Ruby on Rails and Angular. The application was primarily a marketplace with complex time listing requirements for assets. It had payment solutions that had direct integration with banking partners. We also asked for administrative functionality, which was essentially a second application.

How did you come to work with GlobalLuxSoft?

We originally found GlobalLuxSoft through professional connections.

What is the status of this engagement?

They worked with us for 2 years, and the contract ended in November 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We couldn't have been happier with their accomplishments. They covered the agreed upon scope of their role with us. GlobalLuxSoft is a good, clean, professional outfit.

How did GlobalLuxSoft perform from a project management standpoint?

A Scrum master was on their team, and we had a lot of meetings prior to each sprint to define requirements. They showed excellent attention to detail. I also spent a week with them in their Kharkiv, Ukraine office. We had regular contact through Slack, with very clear communication.

What did you find most impressive about them?

What set them apart was their ability to effectively scale on a short timeline.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, they did good work.

Feedback summary: 

The finished database met all initial requirements successfully and currently supports reliable hardware, user, and invoice information. GlobalLuxSoft’s insightful feedback, collaborative approach, and reasonable price point proved highly advantageous.  

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I was a CTO of a company that provides VDS [virtual dedicated servers] as a cost-efficient solution. We offer the best features of both dedicated servers and Webspace products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with GlobalLuxSoft?

We needed to implement a platform to support our VDS renting services. I searched for the right team to assist us with the creation of a software that could keep all data related to our hardware, users, and invoices.

GlobalLuxSoft provided 3 server-side developers, 2 client-side developers, a QA analytics person, and a team leader. We were working on a Scrum basis with daily standups and 2-week sprints. We were working together constantly while creating and updating product specs. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The solution we needed was written using Ruby on Rails and hosted on our servers. Other technologies involved in the project included Haml, SCSS, jQuery, JavaScript, Bootstrap, and PostgreSQL.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

Working with GlobalLuxSoft was a valuable experience. They had extensive expertise with the technologies that we were using (e.g. Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, OpenStack) and reasonable pricing. They were the best option we found. 

How did GlobalLuxSoft perform from a project management standpoint?

GlobalLuxSoft assisted with product positioning and offered good advice for items like UI and team management. Each sprint deadline was on time, from what I remember. 

We used a private GitHub repository for code management and ticketing. We also used Skype and Slack for communication, which met our needs.

Are there any areas GlobalLuxSoft could improve?

GlobalLuxSoft performed very well and took the time to understand the requirements at the start of the project. I was never disappointed with anything during our collaboration.
