The Review
Feedback summary: 

GroupBWT delivered their work on time or early and remained organized and on task despite external obstacles. They fix bugs quickly and communicate seamlessly with the client despite work remotely. 

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 a software development company. We’re currently developing an AI-based, natural language processing (NLP) search engine. The system is used for knowledge management and other purposes.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with GroupBWT?

We needed to find the right people with the right tech stack, and it was difficult to do in our country. Our tech stack includes full-stack Python, MLP, and machine learning technologies. We couldn’t find suitable people for this job, so we started looking at companies from different countries.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

GroupBWT is providing development based on the tasks I’ve created. They also consult with us on how to improve the software, and they handle DevOps tasks. They introduced me to various open-source tools and Python packages we could use.

I started with a task breakdown for the alpha version, which included the front- and backend scope, DevOps tasks, and timeframe. I specified what kind of database we needed, how it should be implemented in our cloud infrastructure, and in how much time. I created around 50 tasks in total, with varying degrees of detail.

What is the team composition? 

We have a five-person team. We’ve worked with two full-stack developers from their team, who also performed DevOps tasks. We also have two frontend developers and one project manager from GroupBWT. 

How did you come to work with GroupBWT?

We had Skype interviews with 5–6 different companies from Ukraine, India, Russia, Germany, and Spain. We whittled the list down to GroupBWT and one other company and went through the second round of interviews. We chose GroupBWT because they had suitable skillsets and an experienced team. We wanted to have at least one person that could work as a tech lead, and they had someone available that had expertise in all the tech stacks and could serve as lead, doing code reviews and so on. The other companies didn’t have this kind of experience. GroupBWT also gave us a professional cover letter detailing their past experience, and the language barrier was very small.

How much have you invested with them?

So far, we’ve invested $240,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with GroupBWT in January 2020, and it’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’ve worked as a software engineer for seven years, so I know how much time is needed for specific tasks. Most of the work has been done on time or early.

The quality of GroupBWT’s engineers is on par with other vendors or better. They’re much faster in scripting, performing DevOps tasks, and solving problems. Most bugs have been resolved in one day, which is incredible. From my experience, we’d normally require a few days or weeks for just one bug.  

How did GroupBWT perform from a project management standpoint?

We have daily standups to discuss the next steps, and we work in sprints. We’re using Slack, Zoom, and Google Hangouts for communication. Their English is excellent, and communication is easy.

We’ve gotten a lot of interesting ideas from their project manager. We’ve had some off time due to holidays and COVID-19, but the manager ensured that the team stayed on task using Jira. 

I flew to Ukraine to visit their company in March 2020. They were very friendly, and they picked me up from the airport and picked me up from the hotel every morning to take me to their office. I was there for one week to work together with them, and I had my own space. That was a very productive week, with lots of brainstorming meetings and new ideas. It was an impressive experience.

What did you find most impressive about them?

For them, every problem is solvable, and they have a nice workflow that’s focused on reducing downtime. Aside from their core team, there were other people who got involved and helped us improve the project. One of their founders put some free work into this project, just because he liked it very much and was interested in it. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their standards are higher than mine, so it’s very hard to think of something.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Clients should be open with the team and consult with them about everything they have in mind. GroupBWT’s team should be treated like coworkers and not like external suppliers.

Feedback summary: 

GroupBWT consistently delivers high-quality and error-free work. The team offers a breadth of capabilities and are highly skilled in everything they work on. They’re communicative and aren’t afraid to ask questions.

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 a unified job platform that works with educators, job seekers, and employers to improve graduate outcomes.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with GroupBWT?

They were our principal developer for our platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’ve done quite a lot. They’ve managed everything from project management, product management, product design, too all front- and backend development. They've done a database design. They've done all of system architecture as well. So that put on the listing configuration. So they’re really a full-service organization for the development of all platform.

How did you come to work with GroupBWT?

I worked with them under my previous employer. Then they really gave a very comprehensive initial proposal when we first started developing the platform, which was a good blend of value and kind of technical proficiency.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $700,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in October 2017 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

GroupBWT has always been very consistent and their work is generally error-free. They have a very good ability to suggest solutions to problems that might not have considered.

From solution design to implementation, they're very capable across the board. That's just underpinned by really great value as well.

How did GroupBWT perform from a project management standpoint?

Working with them has never been a problem. They’re an offshore company, but they communicate effectively in English. They’re timely and are as good as any other provider I’ve worked with. In terms of methods of communication, anything is available that we wanted to do— phone calls, video conferences, whatever.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Probably the breadth of their capabilities. We’ve worked with some pretty niche technologies that I think few technology providers would be skilled with. They were able to bring their breadth of talent together with several difficult solutions to create one well-coordinated and coherent experience.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Overall, they’ve been great. There was some miscommunication about billing, but once we had a conversation about it, it was resolved.  

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. They’re very amenable to helping you understand.

GroupBWT delivered a fully functional and error-free MVP of the mobile app, which has launched in the appropriate stores. Their engaged project management approach fostered a communicative and efficient engagement. The team’s problem-solving abilities stand out as a clear strength.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the founder and CEO of Veview, a platform that allows users to create and watch video reviews of products, restaurants, hotels, and other businesses.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire GroupBWT?

I engaged with GroupBWT to build the mobile app, widget, and dashboard for my business.

What were your goals for this project?

The goal was to create a minimum viable product that I could implement with partnering businesses to prove the business case and increase future investments.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

A friend recommended GroupBWT. After an introduction email and a series of conference calls, I was confident in their professionalism and their fit for this project.

Describe the project in detail.

The GroupBWT team provided a wireframe and an early design, which brought the project to life. Once I approved, we moved to the development stage, and I was able to use a test version a month later. After another month of improving the app, the widget and dashboard came along in short order.

What was the team composition?

I worked with two account managers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app is now in the App Store and the Google Play store as a beta test. I am impressed with the quality of the MVP. It is fully functional and has no bugs.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We had regular phone calls and almost daily online communication, which kept the project on track. We used a project management tool to track our conversations. The account managers were bilingual, which was helpful when including the development team in conversations.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was appreciative of their problem-solving and can-do attitude. They were quickly able to find options to achieve my requirements. They understood that my success was their success.

Are there any areas for improvement?

GroupBWT delivered all assets in a reasonable amount of time, but having more defined deadlines would have been helpful. There were also occasions when some technical bugs were found during my review, but they addressed those quickly. Still, I’d suggest improved attention to detail.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder of Haystack News, a news prediction and aggregation service.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire GroupBWT?

Our website had to be built from scratch as it has many moving and interconnected parts and services.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to automate as many tasks as possible in order to reduce labor costs.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I put the project on Upwork and received well over 50 proposals. After shortlisting and speaking with over a dozen firms, BWT stood out because of their clear communication and obvious knowledge of the challenges involved in the project.

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

They provide comprehensive website service, from development to project management. They’ve introduced many features and capabilities including a web crawler-friendly structure, Amazon Comprehend (a language processing service that finds relationships within text), AI, and multiple Google services. GroupBWT is connecting all the dots and creating a well-oiled machine.

What was the team composition?

I work with a team that has consisted of at least four developers (both front- and backend) a designer, two project managers, and a QA tester.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve continued to work with GroupBWT because of their successful execution. I gave them full control of the project from the start and watched them fulfill every goal. They went well beyond the requirements to configure each needed service.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They provide excellent communication and treat us with the utmost professionalism and respect. We mostly talk through Skype, but we also have access to their internal project management software. This lets me track their progress in real time and provide instant feedback when something is ready. Their level of engagement gives us extraordinary value.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They turnaround small projects quickly while working toward a larger goal.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

No, not that I’ve experienced yet.

A well-managed agile process delivered excellent value for the cost. GroupBWT’s team was responsive and eager to implement all of our requirements as completely as possible.

We offer flexible, affordable technology resources to help brands deliver an exceptional experience for online products. I'm the founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire GroupBWT?

GroupBWT is our technology partner. 

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal is to create an effective yet affordable solution that enables brands to monitor their online product presence.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I found GroupBWT online. After receiving an impressive response to my original brief, I flew to Ukraine to meet them. I immediately knew that I needed them to build our solution.

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

They build, manage, and maintain the software arm of our business. They are responsible for all technical development, and their leadership team is heavily involved in project planning.

What was the team composition?

The number of developers scales up and down as required.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

GroupBWT is instrumental to our business. They aren't a third party; they are highly integrated with us. We trust them to deliver everything, and they do an exceptional job.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We use GroupBWT's collaborative project management tool. It works well and incorporates time management, so we know how much time developers spend on each task. I'm active on the tool, so we deal with questions efficiently and effectively.

Everyone is clear on expected output, including all features and functionalities. Once scoped, the project managers handle the development team and bring our idea to life. The team is constructive, alerting me when something isn't clear or needs to be explained. Our collaboration is effective because we commit to projects. The better our visualization of needs, the better our output.

The language barrier isn't an issue. Their project managers speak better English than me and translate every conversation in full. The team generally understands English as well. When we need to be pragmatic, Google Translate works great.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

GroupBWT attracts talented developers and provides an environment that mimics industry leaders. They reward hard work, nurture talent, and respect the importance of work-life balance. This has led to a close "family" of developers and a nonexistent turnover in the year I've worked with them.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

GroupBWT is growing fast for obvious reasons. Recently the pace of my project has slowed and I've had to ensure that they deal with my tasks. Those are growing pains, however, so it's not a big problem.
