    Feedback summary: 

    The team delivered good results for the client, paying good attention to detail and meeting the pessimistic end of the required deadline. They were responsive and communicative, handling the collaboration with professionalism.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    Our company provides ride-sharing platforms and software development services. I run our e-commerce projects.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire GrinTeq?

    We needed a strong partner to help us implement a Magento 2 platform that was a legacy project from our business partner.

    What were your goals for this project?

    To deliver a scalable e-commerce platform for a customer based in Africa.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    We made a list of seven service providers based in the US but with offices in Europe as we wanted to be sure they are aligned with local development services. Our main criteria were to have a team of certified Magento developers with good soft skills.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    The project was pretty straightforward: they developed, tested, and deployed our e-commerce platform, which had to perform well under high loads.

    What was the team composition?

    There were two backend developers, two frontend developers, and a QA.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    This was the project of our client, so we can’t disclose any details.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    They offered us a project manager from their team, but we ended up doing the management on our side in order to have a better grasp of the processes.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    I was impressed by the responsiveness of the team and their management, their attention to detail, and most importantly, their adherence to a structured process with clear thinking.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    The whole cooperation was very smooth, so we wouldn’t change anything really. The only issue was when they moved the deadline, but it stayed within the pessimistic estimate and the reasons were well explained.

    Feedback summary: 

    GrinTeq delivered a user-friendly final product that was received well by customers. The team provided its services at a reasonable cost while offering strong feedback that improved the product. They demonstrated a thorough grasp of the project’s goals.

    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 founder and CEO a platform where users can buy, sell, or trade pre-owned luxury watches at wholesale.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with GrinTeq?

    I needed a technical team of app and web developers to help bring my concept to life.

     

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    First, GrinTeq reviewed our initial designs for the app and website. They followed up with questions to better understand our company and business problem. Then they defined their timeline, technology, and team structure. The team offered feedback and alternate designs to improve the site’s efficiency. 

    GrinTeq used Swift and Firebase to construct the iOS app. They originally used React for the website, but switched over to Node.js later on in the process. 

    Their team completed the app and website but continues to help them grow, adding new features. 

    What is the team composition?

    We work with one mobile developer, a senior web developer, and a back-end developer. There is also a project manager who acts as a liaison. The team pulls in junior resources to meet deadlines as needed. 

    How did you come to work with GrinTeq?

    I originally connected with one of their founders on a Slack channel for entrepreneurs. 

    How much have you invested with them?

    We’ve spent roughly $65,000–$70,000 to date. 

    What is the status of this engagement?

    The bulk of the work lasted from July 2018–March 2019, but they still provide maintenance services. 

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    Users are happy with the app and we have received good feedback early on. The app is easy to use and we haven’t had any crashes or errors that would be cause for concern. 

    How did GrinTeq perform from a project management standpoint?

    Working with an offshore team, I was initially worried about having efficient communication. They ended up being very good communicators, but they don’t always hit deadlines in the way we anticipated.   

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    They’re economical. Although they weren’t the cheapest option, they are a great provider for what they bring to the table. They ask thoughtful questions and are interested in understanding our business. Their team really wants to use their expertise to provide recommendations. That gives them value and makes them competitive with bigger, more expensive vendors.   

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    It would’ve been nice to have tighter project management. I would have liked a more structured project plan and regular check-ins.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    Make sure that you’re proactively reaching out, asking for updates, and overcommunicating more than you would with other vendors.

    Feedback summary: 

    The testing platform featured an intuitive design with accessible functions, and teachers applauded the customization options. GrinTeq completed the entire project remotely, using online project management tools to coordinate. Their communication skills and feedback process were key to success.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    Svefi Academy is one of 250 Liberal Adult Education Institutions in Sweden. Svefi's staff consists of 20 teachers and trainers, and we have about 700 students from Sweden and abroad who attend our long-term courses in all types of learning environments. 

    I'm one of the project managers responsible for coordinating with other schools, developing new content for Svefi's courses, finding new ways of teaching content, and interacting with students.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire GrinTeq?

    We were participating in an international project together with other educational institutions from three European countries. For the project, we needed a testing platform to test the students' knowledge before, during, and after completing courses. 

    The learning platforms that we were using at the time had in-built testing modules that always came with certain limitations. These were often very frustrating for teachers trying to customize them. That’s why we decided to create a customized solution that would be easy to use for both teachers and students while having all of the functionalities that we needed. 

    What were your goals for this project?

    We wanted to have a testing solution that would work on all kinds of platforms, from phones to desktops. It had to have an attractive and intuitive design/audio-visual experience, and we wanted to be able to add increased functionality as appropriate. It also needed to be easy to use for both teachers and students. We expected it to become a motivating tool for students to test their knowledge and to start or proceed with their studies.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    Since none of the participating organizations in the project had adequate developers, we chose from a pool of vendors that we’d worked with before. Out of the three considered, GrinTeq offered the best in terms of quality and cost. We also liked their attitude during the negotiation stage, and our team felt that they were the most reliable partner that we could trust.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    GrinTeq designed and developed a web-based testing platform for the educational organizations that we cooperate with. The project started with the development of the technical specification based on user stories. GrinTeq produced the specs, and we and our partnering organizations approved it. 

    After we agreed on the workflows and approved the mockups, we went on to the production phase, which consisted of two-week sprints. After each release, we would test the functionality of the platform, provide feedback, and suggest improvements. With every sprint, new functionality and features were added, and they implemented all of our suggestions until the testing platform was fully operational.

    What was the team composition?

    From the vendor’s side, there were five staff members involved: a project manager, a designer, two developers, and a tester. The project manager was our primary point of contact. That person was good at channeling communication to the other team members and provided us with feedback.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    As a result of the project, we have received a customized solution for testing students. It was launched on time and met our expectations (e.g., design, intuitive interface, feature set, and functionality). Our teachers now have access to a tool that they are 100% happy with.

    In addition, our students are motivated to use it. It is no longer boring to do tests, and the platform can be easily adjusted to meet different needs and learning environments.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    We were happy with the project management since we met all of our goals on time. We used Jira to plan and implement project activities as well as monitoring the progress of the project. We used Skype for daily/weekly communication, getting updates and solving minor issues.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Even though we never met, we were still able to plan and successfully implement a rather big web development project using online communication tools. This proves that the GrinTeq’s team is experienced in doing these kinds of projects remotely. We were impressed that all of the project stages were completed in due time, and I appreciated how smoothly the implementation went.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    We have no complaints—it was just a positive experience in all the areas, and it feels like we had a perfect project.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    Uniqrn is a product design studio which helps clients to identify business opportunities, prepare business model designs, and prepare product-market fit with further solution elaboration and UX/UI design.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire GrinTeq?

    They provided consulting and development services to support a set of e-commerce projects for our clients. GrinTeq helped to scale up the client's local development team by providing developers on a remote basis.

    What were your goals for this project?

    We needed to execute the development piece according to the solution and UX/UI we have designed.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    We were looking for a service provider in various locations and shortlisted several companies that were ready to set up a team of remote developers quickly. We chose GrinTeq because of their flexibility and affordable rates.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    We had a face-to-face meeting at their office, where we described our tech needs. They then arranged interviews with several developers who were experts in the technologies we were most interested in. They helped to scale up our client's local development team by providing developers on a remote basis. They worked on UI/UX design for e-commerce projects.

    What was the team composition?

    GrinTeq provided us with two software engineers and a QA tester. We also had a dedicated account manager.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    Before this cooperation, our biggest concern was a lack of time. Their team helped us to boost our development and provided smooth delivery and deployment. They were also very competitive in terms of technical skill and affordability.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    We managed the team ourselves. It was very fast and flexible. The team worked according to our internal development standards. We communicated through Slack, Jira, and Skype. With the development team, we communicated during our weekly feedback sessions and during our face-to-face meetings at their office. We have been pleasantly surprised by their strong language skills.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    They’re very proactive. Since the company is pretty young, they care about clients and want to exceed expectations.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    They can take some time to prepare their resources—two or three weeks in our case. However, that’s still faster than the onboarding time needed to hire internally.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I'm a co-founder and CTO of StackTome, an SaaS company in the advertising automation space.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire GrinTeq?

    We wanted them to build our platform’s architecture based on the requirements we provided.

    What were your goals for this project?

    We needed development resources to build our custom solution in time to launch.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    They were one of the eight staff augmentation providers we sent an RFP to. We liked their approach the most and felt their price was appropriate.

    Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

    After visiting our office to better understand the project, including the volume of data we were working with, they set up Trello and Confluence boards for us to collaborate. They built the architecture in parallel with our own development process. They delivered a demo product after 2–3 sprint cycles that we presented to management for approval.

    What was the team composition?

    I interacted with five developers, a marketing manager, and a project manager who interfaced with the team daily. 

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    GrinTeq’s deliverables successfully exceeded the expectations set out in our requirements. They incorporated additional features into our product and delivered a week ahead of schedule, despite the project’s complexities. We weren’t sure we’d set them an achievable goal, so we were very pleased by their ability to deliver.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    I held Slack meetings with each team member every Monday as part of our agile process and was aware of every task they worked on. They responded to all issues and were great about communicating and documenting everything. 

    We held several brainstorming discussions and had team-building opportunities every month. They brought on additional staff as needed and provided me the option to visit their team in-person every month.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Their dedicated developers were highly responsive and flexible in gaining the skills we wanted. I’ve never worked with another team that was as adjustable or cohesive as they were. They contributed original ideas and value for us and were proud of our development results, which made me think of them as a genuine partner. We had a lot of fun along the way.

    Are there any areas where they can improve?

    Work with their team on an agile basis and be open to their feedback and ideas because brainstorming discussions worked very well for us. Some of the insights they provided from sprint to sprint were better than anything we thought of.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I'm a junior consultant at a management consulting company.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire GrinTeq?

    We hired GrinTeq to build an e-commerce platform that could track the behavior of site visitors.

    What were your goals for this project?

    We wanted a fully functional platform with an integrated CRM so we could track orders and keep in touch with our clients. The platform would also provide a convenient UX for site visitors.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    We pre-selected 30 companies, and then interviewed seven of those vendors. We ultimately chose GrinTeq because their developers were highly experienced and provided us with a detailed implementation plan.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    GrinTeq developed the platform from scratch with PHP code on the backend and JavaScript on the frontend. They also implemented a CRM integration using Salesforce.

    What was the team composition?

    We worked with one project manager, one UX specialist, and two developers.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    It’s a bit too early to evaluate the results since the platform recently started operating.
