    Feedback summary: 

    The team delivers quality work responsively. Houlak's team is skilled, communicative, and dedicated. While their prices are on the higher end, they're an honest team that delivers value to their clients. 

    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 SORT Consulting, a consulting company.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Houlak?

    We needed to make an iOS app quickly to share in an IT forum.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    The team at Houlak designed and developed our iOS application. We worked with them on the design, but they did everything else. They provided an architect and a team to develop the app and backend.

    They also incorporated components that we provide for biometric companies that we represent. We needed the backend to show the results that we produce in the app. The app is for digital onboarding.

    We cover all the process and do the ID verification. The app captures the ID document, and they take a selfie. It then validates the identity of that person by doing a facial matching between the picture on the ID card and the selfie.

    What is the team composition?

    We’re in contact with at least four or five people.

    How did you come to work with Houlak?

    We had a lot of references for their work. We were working with a client that we have in common, and I also had a reference from an IT professional that worked with me.

    How much have you invested with them?

    We spent $20,000.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    Our engagement with Houlak started in June 2019.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    I’m very satisfied with their work. They might be a little expensive, but they deliver quality work in a timely manner.

    How did Houlak perform from a project management standpoint?

    They’re responsive. We communicate through email and Slack.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    Houlak adds their knowledge and experience to our service. They resolve things in the design stage that we didn’t have clear. The communication is very good. Their team is committed, which we appreciate.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    They’re a little expensive, but they deliver value according to the price.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    Try to make a relationship with them. Explain your needs very well. They’re very clear and honest people that will tell you if they have the expertise or not.

    Feedback summary: 

    Though the app is scheduled to launch in the coming days, internal stakeholders are already quite pleased with Houlak’s performance, noting the absence of bugs and errors. The team is trustworthy, creative, and highly professional.

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

    BACKGROUND

    Introduce your business and what you do there.

    Donate is a mobile app for blood donors. I’m the founder of the company.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Houlak?

    We are developing a blood donation mobile app.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    Houlak is developing an iOS and Android native app. Users who want to donate blood can use the app to complete a form and find out whether they’re a good candidate. Afterward, they can schedule an appointment to donate. Once the process is done, they’ll receive a code that gives them discounts at different shops, as a reward for their action.

    How did you come to work with Houlak?

    I came across them two years ago. I was developing another project, and a friend recommended Houlak to me. That project never actually started, but I got in touch with them when I had the idea to start Donate.

    How much have you invested with them?

    I’ve invested $6,000 so far, but we’re planning to invest about $20,000 more in the future in order to keep improving the app.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    I started working with Houlak around April 2020, and it’s ongoing. We’re finishing the first version of the app now, and we’re already working on the second one. We’re launching the app in the coming weeks.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    I really like working with them. They’re a young team, and they have a lot of good ideas. They work quickly, and they’re flexible with schedules. We have a very good working dynamic.

    Even though we haven’t launched, I haven’t identified any bugs or errors on the app. So far, so good.

    How did Houlak perform from a project management standpoint?

    Communication is really easy and fluent. We talk through different channels, including Slack. They’re available for us all the time — we’re in contact at least four times a day. We work in sprints, and we share a lot of feedback. We’re creating a strategy together.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    I got in touch with Houlak before I’d fundraised, and I told them that. I asked if they’d be willing to start the project without any guarantees, just knowing that we were going to help a lot of people and that I’d start paying them after I got funds. They put their trust in me, and I put my trust in them. They’re really good people, and they’re really professional. I’ve had a great time working with them.

    Houlak is a young team with a fresh approach. I’m not a very technical person, but I find their designs to be very cool and novel.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    Not so far. I think we’re going to achieve our launch goal, and I’ll be able to say more after that. The only thing I have in mind is that they could be a bit cheaper.

    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 am the chief of innovation and analytics at a leading financial institution.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Houlak?

    We were looking to replace our services provider for mobile development.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    Houlak provides us with native mobile development services for Android and iOS. They have also developed our website and all associated web solutions to consolidate our presence. They’ve built some in React and others in some other frameworks.

    What is the team composition?

    We work with about 7–9 people.

    How did you come to work with Houlak?

    I am not completely sure about how I found them at first, but I did evaluate several service providers while researching the market. I found Houlak to be a lighter studio with a faster response time than other agencies. The involvement of the company’s CEO was also important for us. I heard great feedback from their former clients as well.

    How much have you invested with them?

    We spent between $60,000–$80,000 per year.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We started working with them in May 2018 and continue working with them.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    We've worked very closely as technology partners; Houlak has been very involved with the company’s needs. Every challenge we’ve had, they have been able to accomplish successfully.

    They’ve provided a great deal of know-how and expertise on mobile development, which has allowed us to have many new solutions for our digital channels.

    How did Houlak perform from a project management standpoint?

    We worked remotely so we’ve used Slack and Trello extensively since day one. These channels allow us to be very connected and have great communication. We’ve used an agile development methodology, and they have been very professional and responsible about deadlines. They’ve always had a great response when we’ve requested new things, even out of schedule.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    Something I would highlight is how involved they are on a day-to-day basis. That is very important when working with a technology partner. They are always responsible. Every member of their team — from the CEO to all the developers — has a strong sense of customer support.

    Their expertise in mobile technologies is also great: we have been able to accomplish all of our goals and in a short time. They are a fresh agency that’s always very close to the latest mobile technology trends.
