The Review
Feedback summary: 

The deliverables provided by Intuz have met expectations, and their team has been responsive throughout the engagement. Intuz is a talented team that provides helpful insights to create a successful project.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Established in mid-2016, our company is a dedicated venture aspiring to provide innovative digital solutions. I am the founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Intuz?

We had a unique concept that we were determined to achieve that goes beyond existing social networking apps like WhatsApp and Facebook, with value added features and make the app more successful globally.

The project was very large in size with a lot of complexity and challenges that needed in-depth customizations.

The iOS and Android-based mobile app would have messaging capabilities which would offer a unique experience for users to communicate with their friends and families, and also share information regarding their life events, destinations, mood, time zone, and weather while empowering users to fully control their privacy.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Being outsiders to this entire field, we had a unique concept and vision. The Intuz team really went beyond, acting as consultants and partners with a full commitment to materialize this vision. In multiple occasions, they proposed better solutions that what we had envisioned. Ultimately, with the enterprise level message aggregator solution developed by Intuz, we were able to achieve what we were expecting with a final product that we are really proud of.

How did you come to work with Intuz?

We did a lot of online research to partner with a reliable mobile app development company. We were looking for a company that would not just deliver a technical solution, but one which would also understand our business perspective and develop a custom solution accordingly. We aspired to achieve something greater than a chat app with highly dynamic customization, so we pitched several service providers and clearly the Intuz team stood out. With full confidence, we proceeded with Intuz.

What is the status of this engagement?

We have been working with Intuz for little over a year now. The development part of our project has been completed successfully and to a satisfactory level. We are now working with them to perform enhancements on our app, as well as exploring app marketing strategies to promote our app across the United States and later across the globe.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

To facilitate users with quick, yet smooth communication, we needed to incorporate QuickBlox with high-end customization in the app. The readily available QuickBlox code was not supporting the exclusive customization of the app. Intuz communicated with the QuickBlox team on a regular basis to get permission for code customization, create the new code, get approval for the custom code, and ask them to deliver software development kits of the new code.

How did Intuz perform from a project management standpoint?

They have a clearly communicated process, which was one of the reasons we chose them. Intuz has an excellent team of project managers and developers. They are very prompt in responding and always try to understand more from a business perspective and convert that into technical solutions. They use a project management system software for communication, which is very easy and convenient to use. It allows clients to access the system, where clients can track the project progress and share suggestions as well as feedback.

What did you find most impressive about Intuz?

It is their project development process that sets Intuz apart. They had explained it to me in a very detailed manner before even the project was awarded to them. Secondly, I found the team to be highly responsive, accountable, and always ready to go an extra mile for the solution you want to achieve. They are truly an end-to-end mobile app consulting company that starts from detailed concept discovery and app consultation to app deployment and marketing.

Are there any areas Intuz could improve?

We are really happy with the quality of work and their interactive approach. I am quite impressed with the way they handled complicated parts of our project.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Intuz?

The client must be clear about their concept as to what exactly they want to achieve. They will perform a detailed discovery process to work upon the idea so as to craft a solution that meets your business and budget needs. They have a very good cloud and app marketing team to make your app very scalable and stand out in the crowd. I highly recommend them as being a one-stop shop for any mobile application project.

Feedback summary: 

Intuz was structured and focused, often beating aggressive deadlines. Their deliverables consistently exceeded expectations. The creativity of Intuz's team brought the idea to fruition.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are in the process of building our mobile application. I am a co-founder and the CEO of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Intuz?

We had an idea which we determined was feasible based on market information. We wanted to link with an app development company that would execute on our vision, getting us to where we felt we needed to go. The developer needed to understand what we were looking to do well enough to suggest their own creative solutions to any possible problems.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We initially engaged Intuz for the iOS version of our app. They were in charge of both design and development, including the backend work.

Intuz has also handled the user interface/user experience side of the work. We have made different changes in terms of graphics and company logo. Intuz has been able to handle this in short order, which meant that we haven't had to go outside of their company for smaller work.

How did you come to work with Intuz?

I scoured the internet, made some research, and came to a site which listed top app development companies. Intuz was highly rated there, so I messaged them along with a few other companies. Based on our initial and follow-up conversations, we ultimately went with Intuz. We liked their willingness to engage us on ideas and to work with us in order to get to where we wanted to go. Intuz took an ownership role and helped push the project along since our early conversations.

How much have you invested with Intuz?

The baseline development of our iOS app had a cost of $12,000. We spent another $10,000–$12,000 for the Android version and for additional functionalities.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Intuz in September 2016. The first stage wrapped in mid-November or early December. We're currently in stage two of the project. Intuz continues to add functionalities to the iOS app and is building the Android version.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

In each instance, Intuz under-promised and over delivered. They've blown past deadlines, and never missed one. We had an abbreviated timeline from the beginning, because of a conference which we wanted to attend. We wanted to get to a minimum viable product which we could present, and Intuz knocked everything out of the park, delivering exactly what we needed. At this point, we have a functional version of the app installed into a few of our devices.

How did Intuz perform from a project management standpoint?

Intuz is a very structured group, which we appreciate. Everyone in our local team has a day job, so we've appreciated Intuz' ability to keep us abreast and remain available. There is a time difference between our groups, but whenever we needed to chat with them, Intuz was there. They've checked in almost daily through a number of different means. We use a project management portal through which everyone in our team and theirs can ask questions and have a back-and-forth interaction. If anything more challenging comes up, we can schedule group calls.

It was also helpful for us to have the project broken down into milestones, with a delivery date for each one. Upon each completion, Intuz put together a demo video, walking us through what had been done to date. This was done whenever we asked, even outside of milestones. Intuz was very good at putting together material and giving us updates over the phone.

What did you find most impressive about Intuz?

I haven't been working in this space for very long, so I don't have a very good comparison point. One key point I did take note of when looking at app development companies was reliability, the ability for us, as a US-based company to communicate with the partner and push projects forward. Everything I read about outsourcing mentioned that the US team should make sure that the developer is constantly pushing towards goals. We haven't had that problem at all. If anything, whenever we spoke on the phone, Intuz suggested new things which we hadn't thought about. This was tremendously helpful.

I appreciated the ownership shown by Intuz, in terms of completely understanding what we were trying to do and coming up with creative solutions. When we were not able to chat about an issue, Intuz' team went ahead and tried a few options by themselves, which saved us time. This was particularly helpful when we had an abbreviated timeline.

Are there any areas Intuz could improve?

I don't have a lot of experience in the field, but I haven't really noticed anything.

We have engaged with a third-party contractor for a different part of the project. Intuz has had a very good dynamic with the other group, making an effort to understand everyone's work style and availability. We are working with people from across the globe, so it's been a bit difficult, but this is more of a project management issue from our side.

Feedback summary: 

The client is pleased with the results of their engagement with Intuz. They spoke highly of Intuz's project management and skills with AWS. Their cloud environment was set up and configured very quickly.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a multidisciplinary creative design agency, nestled in a bustling inner Sydney district. I am a digital designer and am project managing our apps.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Intuz?

We were looking at a long-term solution for its infrastructure needs and for aggregating its client projects on the best available cloud infrastructure, like AWS. Our main issue had been managing multiple accounts over different standalone infrastructure providers which was getting challenging as the accounts increased in number. We also wanted to make sure that we were scalable to our end clients and cost effectively address any infrastructure needs they had. Moving to cloud was the definitive answer to solving this issue. Cloud being out of our core competency, we needed the right consultants and solution providers to migrate.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Intuz has been our development partner for mobile application. For this particular project, they have been the drivers themselves as it was their suggestion to migrate our projects to AWS. They started by educating us about the benefits of migrating to cloud. Intuz also introduced the AWS services that enabled great efficiency improvement regarding multiple account management. Then, they swiftly worked upon getting the configuration right for the process. Intuz started by understanding the current configurations of existing infrastructures of different projects, prepared our AWS accounts, and architected a perfect setup to migrate, manage, and maintain all our accounts in AWS.

How did you come to work with Intuz?

Intuz had been our long-term development partner working with us on multiple B2B projects and executing them as per expectations. With their dedicated cloud consulting division, well-defined processes, very enthusiastic, and experienced team, they were an easy choice for us.

How much have you invested with Intuz?

Since we are a B2B client of Intuz, we have maintained strict confidentiality in terms of finances related to all our previous and on-going projects.

What is the status of this engagement?

We have a good relationship with Intuz. We started working with them through good references and have successfully completed projects with them. More projects are already ongoing, and they will be helping us setting up cloud infrastructure for our future projects.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Moving to AWS Cloud has made things easy for us. We currently do not have substantial stats to show as the migration was completed just a couple of weeks back. But the project managers at Intuz made sure that we understood the AWS dashboard and basic operations. Our clients have had uninterrupted services. Managing multiple accounts has become streamlined. 

How did Intuz perform from a project management standpoint?

The Project Managers were extremely helpful in setting this up. In fact, as stated before, they were the ones who suggested us to migrate to AWS cloud after understanding our struggles. They educated us about the entire process, explained minute details of the cloud blueprint, and always advised in the right direction.

What did you find most impressive about Intuz?

I think it is Intuz team’s ability to listen and guide you when you are struggling, and accommodating resources if you need them. Those are the things that set them apart from other firms. Their certified AWS cloud team is super active and very quick at implementations. They setup, migrated, configured and got the system online in 48 hours! That too without much downtime.

Are there any areas Intuz could improve?

Nothing that we can think of right now.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Intuz?

They are excellent at what they do. The team is very tech savvy and deeply rooted to their domains. The project managers are a delight to work with and excellent advisers. We are already working on more projects with them, and we would definitely recommend Intuz to prospects considering working with them.

Feedback summary: 

With the exception of a small transition phase, this client is very satisfied and plans to continue their partnership, highlighting Intuz's strong communication and project management.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

The company is Lyricnote. It’s an iOS application for songwriters. It’s basically Evernote for songwriters.

I’m one of the founders. My brother is also a founder. We’ve been around officially for two years. Our newest rollout which we rebranded, re-optimized, and redesigned has been in the last six months.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Intuz?

Songwriting is historically done with pen and paper, and a lot of those ideas are stacked in classic technology. The problem is going from data laying around, to systems of record that are searchable and stable and stored in the cloud. We wanted to modernize the saving of that information with a bunch of swanky tools on top of that for the modern day songwriter. It’s gone well.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’ve done all of our development for us from the get-go. They’ve been a strong partner in helping us iron out ideas and set up the backend structure that we didn’t fully understand. We’re great at design and have a good idea of what we want to accomplish. They basically will tell us if it’s feasible or not and what best practices are when trying to set up an infrastructure of that type. They’ve been with us since the beginning of Lyricnote and with one of our previous applications as well. They’ve been reliable. It’s only available on iOS currently. It’s out in public beta. We’re tracking usage behavior, adoption levels, and AB testing some other triggers on how engaged the user is in order to get insight on what features are working and what aren’t. We’re currently building a web application with them. So the users will have the ability to write their songs on the web not just from their phone. Then we’ll probably go iPad and Android once we’re ready to go.

How did you come to work with Intuz?

Back then it was a simple Google search and their name was My First Mobile App. This was technically our first mobile app. We liked the newness of the name then. There was no question they could do large scale development and things like that. We ended up going with them because they were new. That’s what caught our eye. We had an early conversation with Simon and it was great. He was really interested in trying to get us where we wanted to be and at a fair price.

How much have you invested with Intuz?

We have spent between $10,000 and $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been with them three years.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I think, early on, if we had tried to develop ourselves with less educated developers, we would’ve made some core infrastructure mistakes. They knew the size we wanted to scale and directed us in the path to making sure we had the infrastructure to do so. Definitely a big win there. In terms of the application to our users directly, we’ve seen some great feedback with response time in terms of bug squashing. We did roll out with small bugs. That’s pretty common. Those were rectified and corrected pretty instantaneously. There was really no down time. The quality assurance process has been pretty thorough with them. If there was something wrong, it was probably a miscommunication of what we wanted from a design standpoint and not really in terms of coding. It could’ve been we just explained it incorrectly and then signed off on it out of haste to get it on the app store. When it comes to them wanting to build really well and fast and at a reasonable price, they were fantastic.

What did you find most impressive about Intuz?

It seemed like Simon is dedicated to our account. There’s one point of contact and I think that’s important. It really helps him wrap his head around what we’re doing. He manages the projects and picks out two developers as needed. It’s been pretty nice to have a single guy with a team behind him.

Are there any areas Intuz could improve?

I think it’s the same age-old thing - improvement requests in shared communication. There was a time they were going through their rebranding or something when things went dark for a bit while they were making that change. Now they have a sweet project management portal that we have access to. Before it was Skype and sending files back and forth through Dropbox. Now it’s more centralized into a project management portal. That improves communication. Instead of me waiting for them, it’s them waiting on me which is the way I like to see it. If there is any request, it’s just that they keep going in the direction they’re going.

Overall Score Now, with their improvements with the project management portal and increase in communication, we feel great continuing with them.

Feedback summary: 

Intuz has built a site that is stable, reliable, and has been well received. Though the client was not satisfied with the first project manager for their account, the situation has since been rectified, and the client describes the replacement as outstanding.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

CXOTalk is a video interview site that brings together the most innovative people in the world for lengthy video interviews.

What is your position?

I'm the founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Intuz?

The site is the public-facing part of our business. It's the core repository for the videos that we create, so having flexibility in the platform was extremely important to us. It was strategically important.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

This site was developed totally by Intuz – not all the design pieces, but certainly much of the design and all of the programming.

How did you come to work with Intuz?

Intuz was referred to me by a colleague. I actually didn't look hard at other agencies. I've done this before, so I have quite a good amount of experience working with third-party developers like Intuz. They were referred to me by somebody I trusted.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

Our partnership has been going on for two years. I'm going to say in the neighborhood of $25,000 to $50,000 – something like that.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

The product is stable and reliable. It works, and people like it. Those are the metrics that are important to me.

What distinguishes Intuz from other providers?

Much of what differentiates Intuz for me has been our experience with our project manager. We had an initial project manager who honestly wasn't so great, and he was eventually replaced with our current PM about a year and a half ago. To their credit, they have maintained this current project manager on our account consistently through time, he's been just outstanding. I can't speak more broadly to their project management except what we see through the face of the person who's responsible for my account.

Is there anything Intuz could have improved or done differently?

I think Intuz needs to beef up some of their design skills. They have design skills, and they've contributed much to the UX [user experience] design of our site. I don't mean the technical design. It would be good if they had higher-level designers.

Intuz's patience and strong communication enabled them to successfully deliver on the client’s complex vision where a previous developer had failed. The client notes that the resources appointed to them by Intuz went above and beyond expectations.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We're a financial technology company based in South Africa.

What is your position?

I'm the founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Intuz?

The challenge was to find a smart software company that could develop a world-class website and crowdfunding platform.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

Our product is only available on the web.

How did you come to work with Intuz?

I chose Intuz because of the recommendations I saw online and the accolades they displayed. They seem to be caught up with all the latest technology in the financial services space.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

It was less than $50,000. They were not expensive at all. I still feel they under price their resources.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

I think Intuz's value proposition was that they went the extra mile and their communication is very astute. They are able to keep to a schedule, which is unheard of when it comes to software development. They're fast in executing.

How did Intuz perform from a project management standpoint?

In Africa, our financial institutions can be a bit backward. Intuz was patient with us in terms of communication and understanding the program scope. We didn't have a spec for the whole website because the previous developer had challenges in terms of executing on the job that we wanted. Our partnership with Intuz was based on communicating often to develop the website to our expectations. They did exactly what we wanted and spent more time than expected on a daily basis trying to figure out exactly what we wanted. We also made mistakes on our side, but they gave us additional time to rectify our mistakes and to maintain the website at no charge at all which I thought was a magnificent value add. They did not complain, and they proceeded as expected.

What distinguishes Intuz from other providers?

I think what made the project easy was that they had more than one developer on our project as opposed to working with a freelancer. They had promised me only one developer, but they appointed a number of resources to assist us given the magnitude of the problem, which made it a very easy and smooth process. We didn't have any hiccups at all. They trusted us to make payment after they had completed some of the tasks although at the initial stages we paid in advance. 

Is there anything Intuz could have improved or done differently?

I'm not too sure if I would change anything from what they are currently doing, but it would be great if they had an office in South Africa.

Intuz’s communication and responsiveness have impressed the client so much that he often forgets he is working with an offshore team. He notes some of Intuz’s key strengths as being their attention to detail and constant desire to improve his product.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

My company, Virdition, is an online auditioning platform for the entertainment industry. It allows agents and talent to audition online virtually.

What is your position?

I'm the founder and CEO of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Intuz?

I've been working with Intuz from the very beginning, since 2009, when I started developing the platform. They've been extremely helpful because I'm not a tech guy – I just had the vision. They were able to walk me through this whole process and complete the project as per my specifications.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

They've been the only developer doing work on the platform since 2009. We have a web-based application. We use .NET and PHP, so it's available online, on Android, and any device that logs onto the Internet.

How did you come to work with Intuz?

Actually, to be honest with you, it was just luck. Intuz was the first company that I dealt with. I didn't shop around. I didn't look for anybody else. I just landed on them. I felt comfortable, and I was fortunate. I hear a lot of horror stories, and when I tell people I've been with this company since 2009, and I've never had an issue with them financially, in getting work done, us paying them, or them doing what they're supposed to, people marvel at it because they hear a lot of bad stories about working with companies overseas.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

It's been six years, and I would say we've spent with them about $100,000 to $150,000 a year.

What is the status of this engagement?

We still keep some members of their team on full time.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What distinguishes Intuz from other providers?

Intuz has always been very patient with me. Like I said, I had no knowledge of the Internet, development, code – anything. They could have really ripped me off if they were a bad company because I wouldn't know any better, but they were very patient with me. They worked within my limitations. They suggest and they apply better ways of doing things that I'm not aware of. Intuz is constantly improving my platform based on the latest technology. Any requests that I have, they're always on time, taking care of it. We talk almost every morning on Skype. They have a dedicated person that works with us on a regular basis every day. I don't even feel like I'm working with an offshore team because I talk to them on a daily basis like if they were just next door.

Is there anything Intuz could have improved or done differently?

I really can't criticize Intuz in any way because they always meet my expectations. Whatever I wanted to do on my website, they've always managed to do it and do it well. I really don't have anything negative to say about them. They've always been on time with what they've done.

Feedback summary: 

Intuz worked with the client’s highly visual design process to realize her vision for the app, while keeping her in the loop every step of the way. She describes Intuz as considerate, respectful, and nice, and notes her account manager as being particularly awesome.

BACKGROUND

Please briefly describe what your company does and the role that you play there?

I am the owner of a staffing company that is involved in developing apps and tools for other businesses to use to delegate assignments to the workers on hand that day. In addition, I have developed some communication tools for ALS [amyotrophic lateral sclerosis] and stroke patients and their families. They are able to use these tools for more efficient and better communication.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was the business challenge that you were trying to address when you approached Intuz?

I am an innovator, designer, and developer if you will. My challenge is that I have not taught myself to build apps or code yet. For this reason, I searched companies that did this for a living.

SOLUTION

Can you tell me about the scope of the project, what were the exact services or methodologies Intuz provided or implemented? 

I am the type of person that sees in pictures. When I am designing something, it is easier for me to show you in pictures and diagrams than it is for me to tell you. I provided detailed information, slide by slide, on what I wanted to see when my app was completed. From that information, Intuz was able to build the app. When questions were brought up, Intuz was able to provide solutions as to how to make it work within my app. They are very knowledgeable and, if they don't have the answer right away, they will find one to complete the problem if at all possible.

Can you give a sense of the size of the initiative?

Personnel work hours are impossible to guess at. I have worked for years in my spare time working on these ideas. The dollar amount seems to be around the $5,000 to $7,000 range per app per platform for example iOS and Android.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Is there anything unique or special about Intuz that really makes them stand out?

Yes, Intuz is very considerate, respectful, and nice. They were timely and answered my questions in a very timely fashion. I never have gotten the runaround from their team as has happened to me in the past with other development teams. Intuz is top notch for sure, and my account manager, Simon, is awesome.

Looking back on the project, is there any area that they could improve upon or that you would have them do differently?

The only thing I would say is given the constant upgrades from Apple and iOS, it is almost impossible for someone trying to get app off the ground to continuously deal with maintenance fees of $1,000 or more just because of an iOS upgrade.

Feedback summary: 

The client is very satisfied with their partnership with Intuz. This client highly recommends Intuz for their cost transparency and willingness to fix any bugs in the development process quickly.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the creator of a mobile application. My app allows users to share photos side by side with their friends and then those friends can vote on which photo is better between the two.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Intuz?

I needed to develop a photo comparison app from start to finish. I didn't have the resources in my company to complete the task.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Intuz developed my app working for both the iOS and Android platforms. Originally, I only wanted to take the app to the iOS platform, but it was such a success that I felt comfortable transferring it to an Android platform as well.

How did you come to work with Intuz?

I started by going to Elance. I interviewed some people, and I wasn't thrilled with the responses I got. That's when I came across Clutch. I liked the fact that Clutch filters through companies and can really focus on groups that I am interested in. After I had found Intuz, I followed up, interviewed them, and asked them to write a sample code.

How much have you invested with Intuz?

The app development cost between $1,000 to $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The app was completed, and we have a working app in the App Store. But, with a growing company, you never really finish. We're incomplete in the sense that we're continuing to make improvements, and Intuz is helping us with that.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I have four metrics that I'm tracking right now which are the number of downloads, the number of registrations, the number of engaged users, and the percentage of people who invite a friend onto our app. The app and its backend platform are working as specified, and the app looks good. 

What did you find most impressive about Intuz?

When I was searching for companies, I was constantly afraid of hidden fees being sprung on me. I did not want the company I paid for to charge me extra to fix mistakes that they made. Intuz was good about being upfront with their cost and fixing small things free of charge.

I'm pleased with the final product, but I found the process to be troubling. I'm not sure if Intuz has grown over the last year, causing them to have less time and resources. Product-wise, the app is good, but it was a struggle to get it to that stage. 

The biggest benefit of working with Intuz is the value that they offer. Intuz does development for cheap, which is hard to come by. 

Are there any areas Intuz could improve?

I think there's always room for improvement. When you're describing changes, and you can't see the process as it's happening, sometimes something is lost in the mix. We had one or two issues where I would give Intuz a wireframe and the end product would be built differently. The solution to this problem would be to ask for more documentation or transparency with the project's production.

My biggest challenge with Intuz was in terms of communication. There are many gaps, it's hard to get people on the phone, meetings have been skipped or ignored, and I've had to hound Intuz' team for answers. The work, at the end of the day, gets to where it needs to be, but it will take many rounds of iterations and fixes. What Intuz first puts out is not good.

Based on the scope of work and timeframes, they'll do something with many obvious bugs and issues. Everything has bugs, but there are many things which could be avoided with a quick check. An example would be the first iteration of an option for sharing things via text message. When clicking on "Share via text message," nothing happens. Quick tests of built features don't occur. 

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Intuz?

For people under a tight timeframe, Intuz may not be the right group. I suggest that clients allow themselves more time than they feel the project would take, try to come to every meeting prepared with what they want to discuss, and take diligent notes, getting everyone on the same page.

Feedback summary: 

Intuz worked through the language barrier with the client, based in Saudi Arabia, to deliver a well designed and highly functional app. The client feels that Intuz truly exceeded expectations.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization. What is your role and responsibilities?

I'm an app developer. Right now, I'm building an application that shows hotel vacancies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal for working with Inutz?

I needed help developing my app, I had the idea, but I needed help implementing it.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

Mostly Intuz worked on the design and development side of the application.

What was your process for selecting Intuz?

I worked with another company, and it was a bad experience, so I decided that I needed to make a switch to a new company. It turned out that Intuz was that company.

Can you give a sense of the size of the initiative?

The app in total will cost about $10,000 to $50,000.

When was the work completed?

We started working with Intuz in March 2015, and the project is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Are you satisfied with their performance?

Intuz did a great job. I didn't expect such good-quality work but it turned out really well.

Is there anything unique or special about Intuz?

The design is amazing, and the application works seamlessly. There were no problems that couldn't be solved. There were a few issues with communication because we didn't speak the same language and I needed Arabic content, but we worked together and were able to translate the content I needed with very few mistakes.

What advice would you give to future clients of theirs?

If you're going to work with Intuz and you speak a different language, be very clear with your communication. They answered my questions quickly, and if I sent them an email, now I'd get an email back in one to two hours, but it's important that you speak and communicate clearly with them.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or that you might do differently?

No. Not that I can think of.
