Feedback summary: 

The site is live, and the userbase will grow after marketing efforts begin. JAFTON was well-organized, and they offered useful suggestions for growth and future development. They are accommodating and consultative.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the founder of a startup in the trucking industry. We created a platform that matches trailer owners with individuals looking to rent trailers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JAFTON?

We needed a website. We had an idea but no web presence, and we needed a company to help us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built the whole website and all the features and functionality within it. We have two types of users, so there are profile creation options for both owners and renters. There is a location-based search option, as well as other search filters. I'm not sure of the technologies they used, but I know they built everything up from scratch. They created all the wireframes and did both the design and the development. 

What is the team composition?

We worked with a project manager, a designer, a frontend developer, and a backend developer.

How did you come to work with JAFTON?

An individual in my network worked directly with their CEO and referred them. They had a lot of experience in IT, and we liked the advice that they provided.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around $20,000 on the project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in late 2018, and they completed most of their work within about two or three months. We still make requests, and they're happy to make small changes whenever we need them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The site is live, but we're still growing our userbase. We haven't started the marketing, so site traffic is still mostly within our network. The site worked well in tests, and all the functionality is active. They still offer advice and consultation services, and we'll go back to them for maintenance once we start marketing more actively.

How did JAFTON perform from a project management standpoint?

I worked directly with the designers, but the project manager made sure everything was well-organized. They took good notes whenever we spoke, and I was happy with all our interactions with them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The site isn't particularly complex, but they did an excellent job and were a good partner. Their CEO was very helpful, and he had suggestions for userbase growth, development, and other areas.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Overall, I'm very satisfied with their work. I can't think of anything they should improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

This was my first experience of this kind, and I was initially hesitant to ask certain questions. They were available at any time, and they always responded positively. Don't be afraid to reach out to them about anything; they're very accommodating.

Feedback summary: 

JAFTON went above and beyond, creating an effective and high-quality tool. The product has worked well for many enterprise businesses. Their team is supportive and skilled. They were readily accessible and 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.

I’m the co-founder and CEO of a SaaS company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JAFTON?

I was looking for someone that could build a website widget tool for our SaaS company.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I came to JAFTON with a simple idea. Their team developed a website widget that tracks website abandonment and creates a pop-up. Essentially, a site visitor may want to leave without having a deep interest. When they click the exit button, the widget pops up and offers to call back within 20 seconds. This helps the company owner keep the customer. The text, color, and behavior of the widget can be customized.

What is the team composition?

We worked with a project manager, senior developer, and a senior designer. My team also engaged with the founder when necessary.

How did you come to work with JAFTON?

I searched for development companies. I decided to contact JAFTON after a random choice and ended up finding out that they’ve been in business for 20 years. The CEO was supportive and business-savvy, backing up his products with his own insight. He contributed by giving us satisfying and important advice.

How much have you invested in them?

We’ve invested $750,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with JAFTON on this project from February–June 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

JAFTON has exceeded my expectations. Since our engagement ended, they’ve been maintaining the product. The tool is comfortable for users, working effectively for my customers. We’ve been able to sell the product to large online enterprise companies.

How did JAFTON perform from a project management standpoint?

We used Jira as our project management tool. Along with daily calls, we communicated through Slack. Their team was supportive throughout the engagement.

What did you find most impressive about them?

JAFTON was interactive and available whenever I reached out to them. The founder was engaged in the business and understood its scale. With his background, he gave us a lot of professional and helpful advice.

Are there any areas they could improve?

If they had more specialists that could work in different time zones, it would be effective and help improve their services.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Customers should read about the team’s previous successes. We were a bit reserved at first and provided them with instructions; however, it really helped once we started treating them as teammates and asked them for advice. It didn’t have to be very formal, which made the process smoother.

The platform functions well, supporting thousands of active users and hundreds of monthly transactions. JAFTON proactively fixes bugs and provides insightful feature consultation. Customers can expect a communicative partner with valuable product development expertise.

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 CMO of a B2B package sending platform. We match travelers with people who are sending packages in the same direction.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JAFTON?

My company hired JAFTON to build our app from scratch. Our existing app was on WeChat, China’s main platform, and we wanted to create a new app for iOS and Android. We also needed to develop a web platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

JAFTON developed a platform that allows users to create a profile and identify as a traveler or sender. They built the app for iOS, and they will develop for Android shortly. The platform matches travelers and senders who are available within the same timeframes and locations. The two parties can open a chat and negotiate the price. Finally, the system processes the payment, but the payment isn’t released until the deal is complete.

What is the team composition?

We work with a project manager, a senior developer, and a senior designer. My team also engages with the founder of the company when necessary.

How did you come to work with JAFTON?

When I came on board, my company was already working with JAFTON, but I think our CEO found them through a referral.

How much have you invested in them?

My company has spent around $200,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project began in June 2018, and it’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re currently operating with more than 7,000 active users. We close around 200 deals monthly, and the platform has been functioning well.

Whenever there is a bug, we report it to JAFTON, and they take care of it. They’re helpful when it comes to consulting about features we should develop, either immediately or sometime in the future.

How did JAFTON perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re quick with communication. Our teams use Slack and have daily or weekly calls. We use Jira as a project management tool, and we work in an agile way.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The founder has experience developing products, so he has the perspective of not only a service provider but also a startup. He understands how to scale the product and when to add features.

Are there any areas they could improve?

If they had a specialist that was more flexible with our different time zones, that might speed things up; other than that, they’re pretty accommodating.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Read about the team’s previous successes. We were a bit reserved at first and provided them with instructions. However, it helped once we started treating them as teammates and asking them for advice. They might know better than the client about what to do.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The client’s success was contingent on having a functional platform by the end of 2018, but users were still reporting malfunctions as last as mid 2019. Despite repeated requests, the JAFTON team failed to resolve bugs and refused to grant access codes to the client, causing huge losses in investors and users.

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 a telemedicine company in New York.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JAFTON?

I wanted to develop a platform that would resolve some of the discrepancies and inefficiencies in the healthcare industry. It’s very common for medical professionals to experience billable burnout or for patients to miss appointments. These scheduling problems can create a lot of frustration for both doctors and patients. I needed an experienced IT agency to create what I envisioned.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They used Java to build our mobile app and wrote the code for both iOS and Android. They now manage product maintenance and quality assurance. 

What is the team composition?

We have a very large team. I like to deal directly with the CEO, but there are two project managers and a senior engineer project manager. There’s a team leader that manages the payment processing aspect of the platform. I also interact with the senior developer and designer very regularly.

How did you come to work with JAFTON?

I originally met Bobir (CEO, JAFTON) through Facebook several years ago. At the time, I was working for a nonprofit that used JAFTON to develop a new website. I really liked how they operate, so I reached out again.

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent between $600,000-$700,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started on the project in August 2017 and our project is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I honestly don’t think I could expect more from them. Whenever I have a new idea or want to change things, I give them instructions and they are able to develop it. Sometimes it’s just to have something moved by half an inch, other times it’s to create something completely new. Yet, they always make it come to fruition.

How did JAFTON perform from a project management standpoint?

They're excellent project managers. Their team is attentive and has great communication skills. We’ve had a standing phone call at the same time every week for the last two years, and no one has ever missed a call. JAFTON uses a unique tool that is very comprehensive and helps them prioritize tasks. I can also contact them through Slack, email, and phone.

What did you find most impressive about them?

In addition to being budget-friendly, they’re super accessible. I know that I can reach them no matter what time it is, which is reassuring. They work very hard, and everyone on the team gives 100%.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Of course, people have bad days and occasionally there are problems, but they’re patient and extremely professional.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Whether you’re dealing with JAFTON or another IT company, be crystal clear and straightforward when you give them instructions. As the person running the project, you need to be consistent when you communicate.

Updated Review

This review was updated on August 1, 2019, by the client. The original star ratings were: Overall – 5, Quality – 5, Schedule – 5, Cost – 5, NPS – 5. New content is below.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JAFTON?

I entered into a contract with Bobir (CEO, JAFTON)—who allegedly performed work for the contract made with another development company also owned and operated by Bobir—to create a telemedicine platform. The vision of the platform was to provide an easy-to-use website and mobile app that will help people find doctors and get video consultations with them.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Bobir demonstrated a contractual guarantee that the platform would be tested and functional by November 2018. Therefore, I began investing substantial capital in building marketing, sales, and operational teams to promote and support the platform.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

How did your relationship with the vendor evolve?

Our sales team was successful in securing deposits from medical practices for the telemedicine platform. Additionally, the operational team was being trained in telemedicine and its laws and regulations. As presales were completed, commissions were paid to incentivize the sales team to continue securing contracts from medical practices. This is a common practice in startups and pre‐sale ventures. 

The time, capital, and cash were invested per the IT team’s guarantee on delivering a functional platform by November 2018. So far, the users of the platform continuously conveyed disappointment in its functionality and reliability as late as July 2019.

How did JAFTON address the challenges that arose?

Tulkin (Project Manager, JAFTON) gave false progress reports on a continued basis, while Bobir sent fraudulent and false statements to me to induce installment payments, without actually doing any of the contracted work. Ahmedov (Senior Developer, JAFTON) was part of all progress reports, and all dysfunctionality of the platform was reported to him.

On July 24th, 2019, during a scheduled conference call with JAFTON, I confronted Bobir, Tulkin, and Ahmedov about a faulty platform and continuous delays once again. I asked them to turn over the codes, which I have full ownership over. Bobir refused to do so unless I paid them additional funds.

Describe the impact this engagement has had on your business.

As the platform completion and functionality continued to be delayed, my company and I began to incur substantial debt and associated interest payments. Since the platform is not functional, our marketing, sales, and operational teams were dissolved in June 2019. 

Additionally, the medical practices that signed up with us are now requesting for their payments to be returned due to the faulty platform. I found other developers through Clutch to bring the platform to functionality, but the current JAFTON team refused to turn over the codes unless I paid them additional $40,000. 

Bobir is also constantly trying to convince me to disseminate false advertisement by promoting an unreliable service as a high-quality, fully-functional product, which is a criminal act under US law.

Please note, this is a telemedicine platform used between medical providers and patients with limited access to healthcare providers. Therefore, our users are in urgent need of telemedicine services. We’ve had active users who were forced to cancel medical appointments because of software malfunction. Without access codes, I’m unable to transition and maintain the software to fix the bugs in real-time. So, I have no way to effectively prevent appointment cancellations, which can affect the well-being of our users.

What advice do you have for clients with similar needs to yours?
 
I do not recommend JAFTON, or any organization where Bobir, Tulkin, or Ahmedov are involved in operations of any level.

The new site makes the right statement and is on par with the rest of the brand. JAFTON was well-organized and detail-oriented, and their work showed pride. They followed through and were always honest in their estimates.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the founder of a syndicated worldwide television show, a new television show, and an enterprise company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JAFTON?

I came to them to build a new website that offered subscriptions to the health and life coaching options I offer.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I have degrees in nutrition and exercise science, and I own several health clubs. I wanted to build an automated macronutrient meal plan. There were no cookie-cutter options for meal planning, so there was a lot of information that would tailor each plan. It was elaborate and became a project within the larger collaboration. We spent hours on the phone each week, and his developers and managers listened, asked questions, and created solutions.

They built the whole website. They involved Shopify and other e-commerce elements, the meal plan, and links to my tv shows and newsletters. I had an existing site, but they really built everything from scratch and brought my vision to life.

What is the team composition?

They had several people in different parts of the world working on the project.

How did you come to work with JAFTON?

I found them through Google. I wanted a site with custom options that looked like a few examples I had in mind. Three companies came up, and I interviewed each personally. After a meeting with them, I awarded them with the account.

How much have you invested with them?

I spent around $30,000, maybe more.

What is the status of this engagement?

I think we worked together from May-December 2017. They built a landing page very quickly, but the whole project took a few months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The old website was never up to par with my brand. I had a highly rated show on a major network, but that site was behind. My website finally matches what I do. It makes a statement, and there is a much better connection with the other aspects of my business.

How did JAFTON perform from a project management standpoint?

They're very organized, detailed, and proud of their work. Whenever something came up, they made sure everything got done.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I trusted that, whatever happened, they would make good on their promises. There may have been a few moments of disagreement, but they always wanted to make me happy. They followed through on everything.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I always respect people who come to me with constructive criticism. Overcommunication is impossible, and I welcome honesty about estimates. They undersold and over-delivered, and I don't have any areas of improvement for them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If you have a vision, make sure you give them content to back it up. They aren't experts in your field, so it's important that your content is strong. Work with them and hold up your side of the project. Also, have a team member on your side who is tech-savvy. If you don't follow through with them and you don't have someone who can keep your site up to date without them, your site will quickly lose value.
