also distributed it for Nielsen’s employees in Poland.

On the course of work we enhanced documents exchange and improved time-to-delivery, improved communication within divisions (formal and informal groups), introduced fast team inquiries with push notifications and improved information flow within the organization.

The process of gathering requirements and drawing low-fidelity mockups helped to save a significant amount of money and time by avoiding costly modifications during the development. We

also build an interactive prototype to allow everyone involved to have a good understanding of how the product should work.

Bonacea received the complete design of the system for all devices.

We helped them by creating a new module of their system. We started with a workshop to identify business requirements for the new module. After understanding the

details, we discussed technical requirements with Packhelp's CTO.

Together we decided on the system architecture and implementation details. Thanks to our help Packhelp gained an additional workforce and finished a project that they wouldn't have usually even started.

SnowShow Pilot App Image

SnowShow Pilot App

SnowShow is the most significant winter tour provider in Poland, and one of the biggest in Europe. When we started working on their mobile app, we've already been developing their booking system for two years.

Their growth forced them to automate their processes even further. An essential part is logistics during the organized trips. We digitized the work that tour pilots had previously done manually by developing a

mobile app (off-line first with data sync while online).

Thanks to our knowledge of SnowShows's processes the app significantly decreased the time pilots had to spend on managing payments and paperwork. Also, SnowShow's team has real-time data from their tours.

Chilling  Image

Chilling

Chilling is a sister brand of SnowShow. They provide tours to the hottest exotic locations in Europe. To start their new branch, they needed a booking system for summer trips.

We already worked with SnowShow and their business processes. To optimize the work, we started with wireframes to see how much Chilling's booking system will differ from SnowShow's. After that, we knew we'd have to separate Chilling's CMS, but was

able to use SnowsShows's CRM and recommendation system with only a few adjustments to address Chilling's business requirements.

In just two months we delivered a cutting edge booking system that allowed them to earn money on summer trips from day one.

SnowShow Image

SnowShow

SnowShow is the most significant winter tour provider in Poland. When we started our cooperation in the fall of 2015, they had already an existing booking system developed by a freelancer.

We overtook the booking system development, redesigned it the booking journey and Snowshow's website, created a machine-learning based recommendation system and a CMS for the site. Our developers also reduced the overall code

complexity and implemented Continous Integrations, so the system could be easier to maintain and develop new functions.

The new version of SnowShow increased conversion by 20% and sales by 70%. We also managed to make the system much more secure and speed up the development of new features.

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 a DevOps manager for a telecom company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ideamotive?

We took on an endeavor of delivering a whole new digital product in the market of telco products. The product itself would be groundbreaking. We needed fresh, creative minds and people that could deliver.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

It was a great challenge involving creating on a Greenfield platform from the ground up. They helped with the creativity in chiseling the flow and processes to make it as client-oriented as possible.

What is the team composition?

They provided us with the necessary people. Their skillsets ranged from React Native developers to DevOps engineers.

How did you come to work with Ideamotive?

We were at a crossroads and needed to make a decision about the technology we wanted to create. We were having discussions about what technology to use and we decided on React Native. We started to look for React Native companies that had some experience and excel at it. That’s how we came upon Ideamotive.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2018 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They provided us with a very able people that worked well. They understood the project. We could see the sacrifice. They were sometimes working 12-16 hours a day to deliver our product and making changes and tweaks. Their approach, professionalism, skill, and knowledge was great.

Having them within the team meant we had a stable partner we could rely upon. They were part of the team and concentrated on the product itself. The productivity of the team was groundbreaking. They whole team molded together and made it happen.

How did Ideamotive perform from a project management standpoint?

We handled the project management from our side. They provided the necessary means for our needs. If there was a problem, I relied upon them to make it happen and they did. There was someone that had to leave for a month and they provided the means for him to work offsite so that the service wouldn’t be disrupted. I relied on them to provide continuous service without any disruptions.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They met my expectations and delivered what I needed. Their efficiency increased in a manner I would expect also. They do things better and faster. They provide us with really high-grade specialists. They really do their homework.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I’m satisfied overall.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Provide them with a description of your vision. It’s crucial in order for them to get hyped about it. Selling the idea is very important.

Feedback summary: 

Ideamotive was highly skilled and acted on the client’s needs. They were able to communicate in nontechnical language and offer valuable insights. Despite some delays, the team was flexible and collaborative. Customers can expect a transparent partner that will be invested in their success.

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 managing director of Spectocare, an online platform matching caregivers, masseuses, physiotherapists, and nurses with people in need, mostly the elderly and those with disabilities.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ideamotive?

I wanted to make my platform more user friendly and easier to navigate.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Ideamotive reworked the overall UI/UX of my site. They consulted me on possible business opportunities, what to change, and how to make those changes. They explained their recommendations.

What is the team composition?

I was in direct contact with one of their principals, and I had an account coordinator and a designer assigned to me.

How did you come to work with Ideamotive?

I found them through a recommendation while I was living in New York, possibly through the Polish community. Ideamotive was also the main designer of an educational website I was using. I thought that they might be suitable for my project, and I contacted them.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost was £2,500 (approximately $2,900 USD). 

What is the status of this engagement?

I contacted them around late-April 2020, and we had a consultation period of about four weeks. The designer started working around May. 

I was supposed to receive the project back in early-June, but the time was extended by two weeks. We had some differences of opinion during July, and I finally received the deliverables and approved them in early-August.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

My developer is still working on it, so I don’t have any results yet. Ideamotive was very collaborative and flexible with me, a non-technical person with no experience in online technologies. I wasn’t always able to use the proper professional language, but they understood what my needs were.

Right now, I’m waiting to receive the final project from my developer, which should be within a week or a week and a half. Unfortunately, I haven’t had the chance to give it to anyone to try, so I don’t have any feedback.

How did Ideamotive perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very skilled, open, and flexible, and I never felt that I was overwhelming them with my worries and ideas. They were always happy to listen and give me a resolution, and I was very impressed by this. I believe they have a bright future ahead of them. They had plenty of ideas and resolutions. I’ve sent them a proposal for another project, and they gave me feedback that was very advanced on the technology side. I have only good things to say about them.

We used Slack for communication, and the project was delivered on Figma.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’ve made two web platforms so far, and I’ve worked with a few other companies. The most impressive thing about Ideamotive was how open they were. It gave me a feeling of being taken care of. They never seemed bored or set in their own ideas, and they were there for me one 100%.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They delivered the project as if it were the final version of the job, and I felt like I didn’t have a chance to provide my input. It was a bit unexpected. They asked me to make a payment, and if I had other requests, those would require additional payments.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

They should be very clear about their expectations and specify subsequent changes as part of the contract.

Feedback summary: 

The customer credited Ideamotive with helping their startup get off the ground, and was grateful for their clear communication. Ideamotive managed the project well and the customer felt they were on-track throughout the entirety of their involvement despite changes to the project requirements.

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 a co-founder and the CEO of Renderro, a startup focused on providing a cloud workplace for designers, animators, and filmmakers. The tool enables users to upload work that had previously been done in postproduction studio environments to the cloud. We provide machines with graphic cards, cloud storage, and a project collaboration app as part of a simple, out-of-the-box solution.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ideamotive?

The company was incorporated in April 2019 and originally consisted of only me and my technical co-founder. We didn’t have enough hands to do all the work, so we decided to collaborate with Ideamotive. We wanted to create a prototype that showed the basic concepts of the technology and the system design to aid in conversations with potential customers and investors.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Ideamotive created the frontend of the prototype system, where users could register, log in, and demo all the components. I was a filmmaker previously, so I had little experience with app development. Early on, Ideamotive devoted a lot of time and energy so I could create proper specifications for them. They then helped me translate these specifications into user stories and tasks on Jira.

I worked with their senior UI/UX designer on a few iterations of what the solution should look like. We created three iterations of clickable mockups in InVision which I could test with users.

What is the team composition?

There was a project manager on Ideamotive’s side, and I also worked directly with their UI/UX designer.

How did you come to work with Ideamotive?

They were highly recommended by my network in Warsaw, were well-known in the microsystem and virtual machine space, and had worked with young entrepreneurs.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between €40,000–€50,000 (approximately $45,158–$56,448 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with Ideamotive between May–August 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Ideamotive helped us get our idea off the ground. We wouldn’t have been able to move forward if we hadn't partnered with them. Their work has had a lot of impact on our business.

How did Ideamotive perform from a project management standpoint?

Ideamotive’s project management process was a mix of scrum and Kanban. There was a project manager in place and the communication was quite clear. Everything was based on well-planned sprints that left little overflow work. Even though we made changes and reprioritized based on customer feedback, I can say with full confidence that we were on schedule with everything.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I was glad that they didn’t exploit the fact that I was totally green in the beginning. They helped me become acquainted with the basics of development, ensuring that our partnership would work. They already had a contract signed and could’ve left me in the dark, but they didn’t.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of anything.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Clear communication was extremely helpful to me. I tried to be as honest as possible about my needs and expectations, and I expected the same from them. This approach worked well for me, and I would recommend it to future Ideamotive clients.

Feedback summary: 

The project transformed an idea into an app over six months, impressing the client. Ideamotive delivers high-quality development and suggestions on a regular basis. Consistent communication, flexible resources, and a willingness to meet the client’s needs make for a smooth partnership.

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 a product manager at Luminate Enterprises. We build education apps.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ideamotive?

We’re building a word processor simplified and specified for essay writing, and we had a ton of frontend development needs that were slowing us down. Specifically, we needed someone to build bad ideas to test their validity and then build a production-level application.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

There is a lot of collaboration. The process has been fewer product decisions and more development and programming decisions. Ideamotive also plays a consulting role in design validity. Our requirements have flowed and changed a lot as we’ve gone through the project. There’s a high level of communication between our teams.

What is the team composition?

We’ve worked with Justyn (React Developer) for 4–5 months. Filip (VP of Sales & Marketing) is one of their managers and was willing to be involved to help make decisions. We’ve also briefly worked with a designer.

How did you come to work with Ideamotive?

We interviewed four development agencies before choosing Ideamotive. In our conversation with Filip, we liked the questions they asked, and they were willing to provide someone who could work in a startup’s collaborative environment. We wanted a company that could work with us and didn’t require us to have everything figured out from the outset.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $10,000–$15,000 CAD (approximately $7,300–$11,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We started at the very end of December 2019 and are still working together.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since we brought Ideamotive on, the project has really taken shape. It was just an idea at the beginning; now we have a product that we didn’t have in December. Now that we have the stability of an external developer, it gave us more structure and more reason to have a standard development cycle.

How did Ideamotive perform from a project management standpoint?

Justyn has been great. His English is perfect. Since we’re creating a word processor, we needed the copy to be done at a level that requires minimal change. A person on our team wakes up early to work with Justyn for his full workday. He’s also on Slack all the time, so we’re in constant communication with us. He’s very responsive, available, and willing to have meetings whenever.

What did you find most impressive about them?

First, their communication is very good and flexible. Second, they promised to find us the React developer we were looking for, and they were willing to let us test them out on a two-week trial basis. We switched from our first developer to Justyn in that timeframe; Justyn was a better fit for us. Third, they were willing to give us a major discount when COVID-19 hit. Our budget got cut considerably, and they were willing to work with us to make sure our partnership could continue.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It’s really been perfect. We needed to check two boxes — communication and development ability — and they have checked both.

Any advice for potential customers?

Make sure you find the right developer once you find the right agency. There should be a stipulation that lets you change developers so that you find the right person for your project. Ideamotive has a huge pool of talent. Don’t just settle for someone: find a person who understands your project and has the competencies you need.

The work completed by Ideamotive is consistently high quality, satisfying all project stakeholder requirements. Their team is professional, communicative, and dedicated to their work and partners, going above and beyond to make sure the engagement is easy for the clients to manage.

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 COO of VUniverse, which is a SaaS platform in the entertainment space that unifies all your movie and TV show discovery across your streaming services. We take your Netflix, HBO, Hulu, Amazon, and other watch histories and put it in one place so that you know what you have to watch and where you can watch it.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ideamotive?

We needed help with a specific element of the development on our platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Their team provided Ruby on Rails backend development. Our CPO worked closely with them to come up with ideas for the actual implementation of our requirements for them, and then they returned code and he tested it to make sure that everything was working correctly before moving on to the next element. The collaboration went on like that until the product was complete.

What was the team composition?

Philip (Account Manager) was excellent to work with because he was always on top of any questions or issues that came up throughout the project. Marek () was our primary developer working with Philip as well.

How did you come to work with Ideamotive?

Our CPO interviewed a lot of different companies, and Ideamotive came out on top because of their experience and the personalities of the people working there.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $110,000 with them in total.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project started in August 2019 and is still ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I don’t have any specific metrics that I can cite, but they have been able to complete everything that we threw at them so far both fast and economically. We have been completely satisfied with the quality of their work in that regard. The product is out in a beta version but is almost ready to be fully launched thanks to the work that they have completed for us.

How did Ideamotive perform from a project management standpoint?

They were absolutely excellent to work with. It was my first experience working with an offshore company, so I was a little bit more reticent at the beginning of the project, but they took away any angst that I might have had about the time difference or any other communication issues.

We use tons of different softwares to communicate and keep track of everything, including Slack, Atlassian, and a variety of other project management tools.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were coming over to go to South by Southwest, but on their way over they took the time to get off the plane in New York and come meet us. To me, that really was representative of how willing they consistently were to go the extra mile and how much they loved the work with us.

They make the collaboration feel like a partnership rather than a contract. The attitude that they brought every day made the project incredibly enjoyable to work on and manage.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I really can’t think of anything that I wish they were doing differently.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They are the people that they portray themselves to be. You obviously have to look things over, but don’t waste time going back and forth with them on the details. Just talk it out with them and they will be able to accommodate just about any situation you could possibly find yourselves in with them as your partner.

Feedback summary: 

As a result of Ideamotive’s work, the client has a functioning online platform that serves their needs. The team was passionate about the client’s work and showed a lot of dedication to the work. Communication was clear, and they had a well-organized workflow.

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 a co-founder of Travelduck which is an adventure travel marketplace. I’m responsible for the development of our marketplace platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ideamotive?

The challenge was to build a marketplace from scratch and to build a great looking MVP within a reasonable budget. We wanted something that looked like topnotch marketplaces with a modern design and had all the necessary backend functionality.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They did development for both front- and backend. They helped us choose the stack for the project, do the proper setup, and handle the infrastructure. Everything from design to the backend and frontend UX was developed by Ideamotive.

What is the team composition?

I mostly worked with the project manager, but I also sometimes worked directly with the developers.

How did you come to work with Ideamotive?

They worked on a project for a previous company where I was an employee. Now as a co-founder of a new project, I decided to go with them because I had a good experience working with them previously.

How much have you invested in them?

We have spent around €100,000 (approximately $111,859.30 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

The project started in February 2019, and we’re still working together.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We launched the marketplace in October of 2019. There were no major bugs, and after launching the MVP, we focused on mostly developing new features that were in the backlog. It was working well and serving our needs. 

Of course, Covid-19 changed everything, and tourism has stopped for two or three months. We are now focusing more on offers from our local market here in Poland and we are getting back some traction but on a bit of a different product scheme.  

How did Ideamotive perform from a project management standpoint?

They have a very well-organized workflow. We mostly used tasking tools, plus a project management platform as well as Slack for communication. Most communication was done through the project manager, but anytime there was a need I could contact the developers directly, or they could contact me. We have weekly stand-ups with the project manager and developers which has been pretty effective.

We were using them full-time and were working with the best project manager I’ve ever worked with. It was a very smooth process with great communication. They took a very progressive approach to our needs. Sometimes they helped us find a solution that was a bit more cost-effective, but didn’t change the performance of the overall design or functionality of the product. 

The project manager we were working with was very proactive in terms of helping us build a better product with more features for the same budget. She had a very good attitude towards us as a client, and towards the developers who were working on the project as well as the co-founders of the company. With them, we have had the least amount of problems with communication out of any software house I have ever worked with.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They don’t engage in projects they don’t believe in, and they put the most effort into the projects they believe in. I think they really liked our vision and that is why we decided to choose them. There was a huge alignment and passion for our project. It wasn’t just “we pay, and you do.” They had great engagement with the product because they believe in it. They were excited about Travelduck getting better and getting our first clients. Having those first successes was also a great success for them which I really liked.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We have been working together for years and we developed a great communication scheme. It is hard to say where they can improve because I see huge progress in their approach over all these years. I know many software houses, and this is still my best experience.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be super open about your budget, your limitations, and who is going to be involved from the client’s perspective because they’re really flexible in the harder moments for businesses. Be open with them and be honest about the project and business goals. We were open about the business goals because they have the skills of delving deeper into your business and trying to understand it in order to provide better solutions. Ideamotive is a trustful partner and the more open you are, the better the results will be.

Feedback summary: 

The platform has contributed to the partner's growth within the last year. Ideamotive is communicative and participates in daily standups. Their expertise in Rails, flexibility, and ability to meet tight deadlines are hallmarks of their work. They actively handle technical issues and track features.

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 events manager of a Swiss university. We organize many events throughout the year.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ideamotive?

We needed developers to work on updating our website as well as implement new requirements and features. Our university had done two previous versions in-house.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Ideamotive redeveloped our entire platform. We provided spec sheets from the first two versions of the website and described our desired structure and features of the database. They developed the backend management system for us, added input, and implemented codes to create the third version of our website.

They used Ruby on Rails to code and deploy the platform to the web. Now that the MVP is finished, Ideamotive is currently developing new features and broadening the scope.

What is the team composition?

I work directly with the project manager and have direct contact with the web developers as well. The size of the team fluctuates at different times to meet the current need.

How did you come to work with Ideamotive?

I did a call for projects, an audition of sorts, by sending the spec sheets to about 10 different vendors. We felt Ideamotive was the best fit to work with us on the different methods we employ.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested 40,000–50,000 CHF (approximately $42,000–$52,000 USD). The MVP was 20,000–25,000 CHF (approximately $21,000–$26,000 USD) and the new platform will be 10,000–20,000 CHF (approximately $11,000–$21,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in September 2019, and our partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s difficult to provide metrics that result directly from the improvements made. We’ve grown a lot within the last year, doubling the size of our audience. Ideamotive’s work is part of the reason because the website is the face of our events.

How did Ideamotive perform from a project management standpoint?

The process has been the perfect setup for us. We do daily standups to go over the previous day’s and that day’s work. Once a week, I have a call with the project manager and lead developer to go through backlogs and choose the features to work on over the next week.

The project manager does a good job of taking notes during meetings, ensuring developers work on time, tracking all features needed, and handling technical problems. It’s easy to communicate with them. We use several tools including Slack, Jira, email, and more.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We wanted to work in specific technologies, for example, Ruby on Rails. Ideamotive is known for working in Rails. They’re also experienced in this type of project and are flexible, providing a team of developers on short notice and scaling the size as needed. Their team meets tight deadlines, including some that only give them a few hours to do the work.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Due to pressing deadlines, Ideamotive took what we gave them in the beginning and dived straight into the project without much discussion. We discovered that some tools didn’t work as expected and the project wasn’t developing as clearly as we’d hoped. We had to do a QA and iteration of some features that could’ve been done if it had been discussed upfront. The fault lies with us, and with them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Collaboration and communication are key. Feedback needs to be given frequently to help development go the way you envisioned.

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 work for an organization that works in the healthcare space making medical devices. My role there is a product manager for two of our products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ideamotive?

Our most recent project was in support of a clinical trial we were running. We required a bespoke mobile application to allow participants in the trial to submit their data.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided both design and engineering. We had some pretty clear requirements around functionality, but the team helped us with visual design, execution, and screen prototypes. The app’s key feature was data transfer, so they built functionality that would read QR codes from our system, and was able to capture and store the data from that.

One of the key requirements was having a high-level of accessibility. We were working with an older demographic and with people who have eyesight issues or dexterity issues. So they made it accessible by making it responsive to dynamic type settings, keeping calls to action really clear, reducing clutter on the screen, and things like that. While selecting the color palette, he did a lot of contrast tests, and determined an appropriate type size.

They built the app using React Native, which allowed us to build once and release on both iOS and Android. Then they helped launch the program.

We also worked together on another project in which they included visual graph, data capture of medication use and symptoms.

What is the team composition?

We had a product owner there as our main point of contact for all of our development work. Then we had one dedicated engineer and a visual designer.

How did you come to work with Ideamotive?

I wasn’t part of the procurement process for the first project. When I came in, they were already an established partner.

How much have you invested with them?

This project was budgeted at €14,000 (approximately $15,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from  November 2019–February 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

This smaller project has gone into a limited number of participants’’ hands. So we don’t have the success or engagement statistics that would be associated with a consumer launch. The designer did a lovely piece of work to ensure that it was accessible.

How did Ideamotive perform from a project management standpoint?

The product owner was responsible for organizing our stand-ups, getting the team aligned, translating our documentation and requirements, putting them into Jira, and writing tickets.

We also have a Slack channel, which really helps communication. We can ask questions and get responses immediately, and they can do the same. It feels more integrated and direct, which can be a concern when you’re outsourcing. We have strong, fluid communication with them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We’ve established a really good relationship. They’ve given us the information on how things are going internally. We always know what they’re working on, what needs to be improved, and what they need from us. They’re very responsive, and I’ve never had to wait to hear from them. They actively seek feedback and have processes for that in place.

Are there any areas they could improve?

After our first project, we asked them to be more involved in QA. They took some feedback from our last project and took on more of the initial QA on this project. By the time it got to us, we were able to do the business acceptance testing rather than the QA, which was super helpful.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Clear and regular communication is important for all remote work. We had a good kickoff in the beginning. We walked through all of our user journeys, talked through it in detail with the designer, the engineer, and the product manager. That really helped to make sure that everyone was on the same page when we started.

We mainly went to them for outsourcing. We were developing a parcel application.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’re essentially a part of our team, and we work on projects together. We gave them specifications and designs, and they coded the web app for us. They mainly worked on the Ruby on Rails backend, and they created some React scripts on the frontend.

Recently, they were upgrading some of our core backend components to the current Ruby on Rails version. They also built some back-office software for our internal production process and affiliations. In addition, they developed our invoicing system.

What is the team composition?

We don’t have KPIs involved in the projects. We build software in an agile way through sprints and iterations.

How did Ideamotive perform from a project management standpoint?

We collaborate with them to handle project management.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They provide good, steady work, and I can trust them. They’ve never failed, and we don’t have any problems with them. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t have any improvement tips for them because they don’t handle project management tasks on their own. They’re a part of our team.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

No.
