Feedback summary: 

JetRockets wrote thoughtful code that was easy for internal teammates to both understand and build upon. They had a clear passion to think through problems, which allowed them to suggest better solutions for the product. A talented team, they’re set to return for a large follow-up project.

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 product architect at IDG, which is an international publisher/data company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JetRockets?

We had a small internal development team that was trying to build a platform to understand our users’ behaviors. However, our developers didn’t have the time to take on the project fully, and we lacked the internal knowledge of some of the more modern technologies like React. That’s where JetRockets came in.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

JetRockets was an extension of our internal team, working to develop a platform that could reveal our users’ behavior. The goal was to gain insights into how companies accessed our web properties so that we could convert them into sales and marketing opportunities.

Initially, they were responsible for doing the frontend work. But, as they continued to perform well and our trust in them grew, we decided to give them more backend responsibilities that were originally in-house. They ended up taking on much more complicated tasks than what they’d started out doing.

What is the team composition? 

They assigned a project manager along with about 6–8 resources. The team would scale up and down depending on the sprint. There were certain times when we were on a tight deadline and needed to get a lot of work done in a short timeframe. They’d fill in the gaps so that we could meet our schedule. When things slowed down, we would scale the team accordingly.

How did you come to work with JetRockets?

I’d spoken with Natalie (Co-Founder) about five years ago for a different project, so I already had an idea of how well-known they were in my circle of agencies. We got along well, and our engineer also double-checked JetRocket’s credentials to see if they knew their stuff. They aren’t the least expensive company, but they brought a level of expertise to our more serious projects that made them the right fit.

It was also a big plus that they were a US-based company. That meant that our NDAs had weight to them from a legal perspective, which was important for such an established company like ours.

How much have you invested with them?

The project cost around $225,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from October 2019–September 2020. The project is just about wrapped up, but we’re trying to add a large portion of products in the future. There’s a good chance that we’ll be working together again in a couple of months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The biggest compliment that we could give them is that we took a three-month engagement and extended it over the course of the year. In a sense, we promoted them from doing basic frontend work to becoming an integral part of our team’s architecture.

JetRocket’s problem-solving and code were so thought-out and sophisticated. They never built something with vendor lock-in, taking a standards-based approach to coding instead. We could pretty much bring on an internal engineer at any time, and they would understand how the code worked and expand on it. That’s as good as it gets.

How did JetRockets perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management is a huge weakness of mine, so I actually relied on them pretty heavily. Their team was great about letting us know when something got lost during the process. They told us what they needed to do their work, and that was exactly what I needed. 

Each morning, we’d come together for a scrum meeting, and their project manager would coordinate with ours through Microsoft Teams and Jira. It was like we were managing a single group.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were always thinking about the best way to solve the problem. Developing code is a lot like writing because you can write a sentence in a lot of different ways but still get the same message. It’s about style and communication. 

That’s why it meant so much to us to see JetRockets get into lively discussions with our internal team about code. It was really their way of showing us that they were trying to see if there was a better approach. It might sound like having a team that thinks is a simple ask, but it’s pretty rare.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, there’s nothing that I’d ask them to change. If we had the money, I would just buy the firm.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

JetRockets is not the kind of firm where you just hand them a spec sheet. You need to approach them as if they were your own team and generate a conversation with them. That’s where you’ll get the most value out of them. The more freedom you give them to problem-solve, the better your product will be.

Feedback summary: 

JetRockets has proven to be an indispensable partner by executing the highest-quality work and delivering on their promises. They put the client’s needs first and take ownership of their mission and product, ultimately becoming part of the team. The team is responsive and communicates seamlessly.

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 and founder of Opear. We’re creating a telemedicine vertical as well as an in-home care component. We hope that Opear will become the new virtual practice of tomorrow so that our providers, communities, and hospitals can get to a mitigated point of zero exposure.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JetRockets?

Opear takes the position that the healthcare system is not, in fact, a hospital, a doctor's office, or any technology that we bring to market as a society. We believe that the healthcare system itself is the provider: it's the medical doctors and the practitioners themselves. Everything else is a means and a method to enhance or to assist the healthcare system. 

We want to keep the human element component, and that's why we look at telemedicine and say it's merely a vertical or a mechanism within what I refer to as a nucleus or power source. Opear is one of the means and the methods within that power source. There is always going to be a human component to it, even within Opear, but the thought is to continue to integrate these technologies that are available because our providers need to stay safe, and we can't just expect them to go into the fire without their safety and health as a priority to us. We're shifting the paradigm in many ways to make the healthcare system work, not only for the patient but also for the provider. You can build as many hospitals as you want, but if you don’t have providers, you don’t have a healthcare system. We're seeing a rapid decline in medical students and a rapid growth in population. At Opear, we’re trying to handle that growth without sacrificing our healthcare system, while making it a successful one at that.

Opear is building the power source that will allow the healthcare system to work properly, and that is what JetRockets will continue to build with us in the foreseeable future. We’re building a 360-degree solution where the provider, the community, and the patients themselves are completely protected equally by safety, priority, wellness, and health.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

JetRockets handles all of our API connections, coding, and development. They're doing any API connections and integrations that we have with national pharmacies and laboratories. We're working on a new product roadmap that will solely integrate a lot of the new thermal technologies that are coming into the market with our partners, as well as the hospital system across New York and other states. They're going to be working on that going forward as we continue to develop and raise capital for doing those integrations. 

As more technologies get FDA approvals and things like that, JetRockets will do more integrations. They handle any of the coding and engineering that comes into making Opear a more robust power source for the healthcare system.

How did you come to work with JetRockets?

Our existing vendor wasn’t operating the way we would’ve liked. I did my due diligence by speaking with 4–5 of JetRockets’ existing clients. We made the move with JetRockets about six months ago, and ever since then, every bit of their words have been shown in their actions. They’ve been super impressive in the fact that everything they’ve mentioned by word, they’ve set forward in action, which is the most important part of any relationship. That’s what made me move to JetRockets but also what has made me extremely happy with them.

How much have you invested with them?

They’ve been more reasonably priced than any other company I’ve worked with. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in March 2020, and it’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The quality of their work has been impeccable. What they say they're going to deliver, they've delivered. If they tell you they're going to get it done, it's as good as done. It’s been a significant difference from my work with other dev shops. They quickly respond to any fixes necessary to keep both the consumer and end-user experience at a high-level. At every checkpoint, they've just checked the box properly.

How did JetRockets perform from a project management standpoint?

I’ve worked with a large development company out of Poland and two companies based out of New York, and JetRockets has been by far the best company to work with from communication, delivery and expectations, and scaling standpoints. They’re shoulder-to-shoulder with us and are allowing us to grow as a business. They understand what we need as a company, not what they need as a vendor, to make our business happen. Obviously, they run a business and want to be successful and profitable, but they don't throw that in your face; what they throw in your face is that we’re teammates. They've never deviated from that, which has been the most impressive thing to find. They are brilliant business people because they look to the customer and their needs first. They just take a much better approach to communication and discussion than any other vendor I've worked with.

Project management was a concern of mine going in because there can be a barrier if there is a heavy accent. However, communication has not been a problem. If anything is unclear or left unsaid, there is always a follow-up. Everything is always stated and explicitly confirmed. Communication has been spot-on, not so much because there isn’t a barrier, but more so because of their ability to confirm, reconfirm, be explicit, and be willing to ask questions and follow up.

What did you find most impressive about them?

My favorite part of working together is that I don’t actually realize that they are a hired vendor, and I think that’s the greatest compliment to my business and to them. I don’t view them as JetRockets; rather, I truly believe that they are Opear because of how they deliver their message and team experience. They deliver themselves in a way that says they represent my company and are a part of our team. When you have that, you know you’re going to get what you need. They immediately take that position, and it’s pretty impressive that they do.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I don’t at this time. 

Any advice for potential customers?

Trust them.

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 and founder of a digital sports media company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JetRockets?

We were looking for some fun content in the fantasy sports industry. I saw what other companies were doing. I felt like we could be much more transparent with our users and have more of a community as opposed to a daily churn and burn type of fantasy. We wanted to make a difference in the industry.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The team did back- and frontend development work, helping us to execute and deliver the product. The backend that they developed allows us to administers some of the contests and the customers can use the frontend to sign up.

Halfway through the project, we upgraded to React, which was a great move. The team also helps us to execute different layouts for different sports. For example, football is a weekly sport and basketball, a daily sport, so they adapt to those differences.

What is the team composition?

We work with 3–5 teammates, including a project manager. 

How did you come to work with JetRockets?

I found them on Clutch. We interviewed a few different companies.

How much have you invested with them?

So far, we’ve spent more than $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began in April 2018 and we’re still working with JetRockets.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’m excited about how smooth the product is. We’re still working on the user-education process. They work adaptably to help us achieve our goals. We appreciate the resources that they’ve provided and they definitely get the job done. 

How did JetRockets perform from a project management standpoint?

We talk to them once a week and having meetings to go over the project on Uber conferencing. The team is very accessible. Their project management skills are strong, and they are on top of their work.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are persistent in helping us get to where we want to be with this product. Additionally, JetRockets is committed to what they do and they’ve been incredibly helpful.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I have no suggestions.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I would advise potential customers to interview them. See if their goals align with yours, and make sure that the price lines up. Identify if this is something you want to invest in and commit to.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of LuxLock, a retail experience platform. We focus on a direct-to-consumer CRM.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JetRockets?

We are going from 300 users to 6 million users. So, we needed help scaling from our pilot program to implementing and supporting our first enterprise customer. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’ve performed development in React to refactor the solution and ensure it applies to enterprise customers. (Certain things need to exist for an enterprise customer that don’t need to be there for an SMB.) The developers have been reviewing the software to ensure it can scale, making sure the security and logic are bulletproof. 

What is the team composition?

I work with four and a half people. I work with a project manager, two frontend developers, and two backend developers. We’re leveraging their CTO as well.

How did you come to work with JetRockets?

I met Natalie (Head of US Operations, JetRockets) in New York at a female founders organization. We built a relationship for over a year, and they became my team’s “911 call” whenever something crazy happened. So, we had already worked on a couple of small projects together.

By the time we were looking to hire a service provider, I already had a great rapport with JetRockets, they had already been in our system and they knew how our system worked. They had a clear understanding of how to take over the reins. 

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve invested around $40,000 with them so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in November of 2019, and we’re still working with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’re very responsive and detail-oriented. Our company focuses on UX, and they’re very cognizant of the fact that every single design item goes through the UX. 

Whenever I make an edit or an update on a doc, they’re able to turn it around really quickly. They have really supported us well through this crazy time.

How did JetRockets perform from a project management standpoint?

I have a dedicated project manager who is the go-between for all of the action items. She makes sure we complete Step A before we move onto Step B. The communication is really good. We have weekly meetings, and I talk with the project manager every day.

They’re not just looking at how to solve a problem today, they think about how it needs to work in the future. They really took the time to understand our whole product and vision to ensure our decisions today are not going to negatively impact us three months from now. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’ve been founders themselves so they really understand the process of scaling and growing as a business. I feel like I have a really great partner.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Right now, I think we’re in a really good space. We’re on schedule, which is rare. They’ve really been able to take everything I’ve thrown at them, which has been a lot. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

You should take the time to describe your business (where you are, what you need, and where you want to go). Also, make sure you have a tight scope. Then, they can help fill in the blanks.

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 Shift, a company that helps European customers order and produce metal parts with a wide network of metal production partners.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JetRockets?

We have a roadmap of IT processes that we need to implement to realize our business model. We decided to build an order management system based on the Ruby on Rails stack, with the support of JetRockets.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed our order management system, which serves as the foundation for our company’s IT landscape. We’ve had a fixed-price phase one, which they completed, and we’re now in the ongoing process of implementing fixes and change requests.

The system was built on Ruby on Rails, with a PostgreSQL database. It runs on a Unix operating system, with some other minor technologies employed too.

What is the team composition?

There were two dedicated developers, along with intensive support from their CTO and some testing and mockup specialists.

How did you come to work with JetRockets?

We got some recommendations and then chose a partner based on their availability to start quickly, given that we had some time pressures. The price was also a factor.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with JetRockets in October 2018, and the collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The platform they built is our core IT system, so their work has had a huge impact. We only deployed it a month ago, and it’s fully up-and-running.

How did JetRockets perform from a project management standpoint?

We’re satisfied with them. They’re interactive, they reply quickly, and they adapted to our changing requirements. As a startup, we have many requirements that become outdated before we even finished discussing them, and JetRockets provided good management for that environment.

We used Asana based on their proposal, and we’ve embraced it. They also use a Git repository manager, along with their own internal task manager, but we’ve only used Asana on our side.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The solid competencies of their co-founders and team leaders impresses me. When something becomes more difficult, they’re always ready to provide support. Furthermore, they have good development practices and I’ve found their approach to building architectures competent.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Working with startups is hard, given that things are always changing quickly. JetRockets is a more mature organization than ours but we’ve forced them to adapt quickly, which they were good. We’ve been working together for only half a year, so this is always a challenge.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Trust is important, and we have it—we’ve seen them get really involved to get things done, rather than just tackling the initial requirements list. A good level of trust ensures that the project goes on, even if some deviations on the scope come up.

How did you select this vendor?

JetRockets was referred to us. Our engineering team evaluated their technical abilities from past projects, and our creative team evaluated their design capabilities.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They created six templates that integrated with Facebook and our internal server. These included a portal login, a landing template with idle and authorized states, Instagram authorization support information, a client portal event landing template, and a select authorization template, and an error message template.

We provided the design files in sketch format, API documentation, and Postman scripts to test endpoints. JetRockets developed a responsive app with React and Redux 2. They also handled deployment documentation and created a list of build tools and version numbers. 

What was the team composition?

We had one senior frontend developer, one additional frontend developer, one QA engineer, and one project manager. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

All our clients successfully use this client portal without difficulties or technical problems. Our clients have given their Instagram business accounts access tokens with limited friction. This was a new requirement for our business. Without this client portal, we would have no metrics.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Our project manager handled all communications with their engineers, which worked well. We had no problem understanding the technical concepts.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was most impressed when the team brought up issues and edge cases that we missed, then proposing solutions.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can't think of anything.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The app has yet to launch, but internal code reviews have been very positive. JetRocket’s ability to manage expectations and communicate effectively throughout the project were key in creating a cohesive MVP.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the co-founder and COO of AskJack, an iOS app that connects homeowners and contractors instantly with a booking and scheduling system.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JetRockets?

During the beginning of the project, our in-house development team was managing the design/frontend of the app but needed assistance with building out the backend infrastructure.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The service consists of two apps; one for consumers/homeowners and one for local professionals and general contractors. When a consumer needs to book a service, they create an account and answer a few questions on the app that connects them with specific providers in their area. They are then able to browse through their profiles, read reviews, and see their availability to schedule an in-person appointment. JetRockets has taken a lead on backend development for both apps.

What is the team composition?

Natalie [Partner and Head of US Operations, JetRockets] was our project manager and Igor [Partner, JetRockets] served as the lead developer.

How did you come to work with JetRockets?

We received a referral through one of our in-house iOS developers at the time. We scheduled a meeting with them and they seemed great, so we moved forward with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in the summer of 2016, and we’re set to launch in the next few months. We’re currently in talks to develop an accompanying web app.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We haven’t launched the app yet, but our team has been reviewing the code and JetRockets has done high-quality work and kept great notes that allow other developers to pick up where they left off if necessary. We haven’t run into any major issues thus far.

How did JetRockets perform from a project management standpoint?

They were excellent. They always took our budget into account and managed our expectations around timelines and what was realistic for our first MVP. They’ve been extremely knowledgeable throughout the process. I’ve worked with many development teams over the past fifteen years and outsourcing can sometimes be difficult. With JetRockets, the communication was easy and efficient.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The communication has been key for us, and their technical skill level has been a tremendous asset.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Nothing immediately comes to mind.

Advice for potential customers?

Have a clear understanding of you what you want to build. The more information you can provide, the better quality your product will be.

Feedback summary: 

Strategic UX/UI and optimal performance have resulted in significant positive user feedback and professional accolades. Everything was delivered on schedule, and post-launch changes were made at no extra charge.

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 founder of goBaby. We’re an online peer-to-peer marketplace providing strollers, car seats, and other baby gear for rent, making it easier for families to travel. It’s similar to Airbnb in that users can book ahead and rent gear for the length of their trip.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JetRockets?

We needed to build a site that could support our platform. We also determined that a majority of our target audience used iPhones, and wanted to create an iOS app to expand our base.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

JetRockets built the site and the iOS app from scratch. The site is a relatively basic e-commerce platform with review functionality, and it encourages users to download our iOS app. JetRockets made several suggestions during the development process that helped us optimize UI/UX [User Interface/User Experience], which included adding a “Subscribe” prompt to the landing page and links to all our social media pages. We really appreciated their input.

When I asked for changes or improvements, they obliged at no extra cost, which was very helpful for us. At our request, and with no added charges, they shifted us from an external blog to one on the site that allowed users to send posts, which I could then add to the site upon approval.

What is the team composition?

There was a project manager who helped us brainstorm the overall structure, and oversaw communication and deadlines. He was always available on Skype to address any questions or concerns. We also worked with a graphic designer who provided us with mockups for approval and a UX/UI designer that focused on user flow and overall site layout.

How did you come to work with JetRockets?

I work out of a WeWork space, and another startup founder recommended them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in October of 2016 and launched in December 2016. They made some minor changes through March of 2017, and the engagement has largely concluded since.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

When we went live, we got a great deal of positive user feedback and several accolades for the app and the site. We felt that they did an excellent job.

How did JetRockets perform from a project management standpoint?

They were great about keeping us updated on the project. Although they’re based in Russia, we managed to use the time difference to our advantage, and turnaround time was extremely efficient. They were great about making changes when we needed them. It was very important to us that work was completed in a timely manner, and JetRockets ability to meet deadlines put us at ease. Our project manager was very easy to work with and efficiently addressed any issues that came up.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were very good at working with non-technical people and always translated all the lingo into terms that my team could understand and influence. Sometimes you can feel lost when you don’t understand how things are being developed or what’s required, but their process was very transparent.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They were looking for a lot of input in the beginning on what we wanted the design to look like, but I’m not a very visual person, so initially, it would’ve been helpful to see more examples. They explained that they wanted to avoid design stereotypes and create something new for us, so we came around to appreciate their approach.

Advice for potential customers?

Be open-minded and try to brainstorm as many ideas as possible upfront. You can trust JetRockets to choose the best solutions for your project.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Buoyed by transparency and candor, JetRockets exceeds expectations at a steady and reliable pace. In the interest of progressing the timeline, they are communicative, even over holiday breaks.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a data management, business intelligence, and data warehousing company. We primarily service financial industry clients. We have a proprietary data management platform and act as consultants.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JetRockets?

We had a new client who needed a large-scale platform built. It is a collaboration project with a variety of functions. This combination does not exist in the market, so drew on our previous partnership with JetRockets to build the platform together.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our client has their own UI/UX [user interface/user experience] person, but—with our direction—JetRockets provides us with everything outside of those elements. They manage their own resources and time. The platform is still in progress, but will manage freelancers for large corporate clients’ creative projects. It combines project management, compliance, and the collaborative space for project managers and freelancers. It’s a complex platform, with multiple angles.

They specialize in Ruby on Rails and PostgreSQL. We’re a SQL and Python shop, so Postgres is relatively new to us. They’ve been very good at showing us their process.

What is the team dynamic?

We are in touch on a weekly basis for regular updates, and their project manager connects with me at least one or two extra times each week to update us or ask sensitive questions. Everything else is mapped centrally through our project management software.

How did you come to work with JetRockets?

My business partner found them. He had worked with them at a previous job on a smaller project. He felt they were exceptionally reliable, and could work quickly while maintaining good quality.

How much have you invested with them?

This is a $125,000 project. The client has increased its scope, so that number is likely to grow.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our relationship started officially on August 1, 2017, and is ongoing. We’re already considering them for another project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

As I mentioned, one of our three clients for this project is a UI/UX designer. We showed him the staging server in October, which he didn’t expect. With their help, we beat expectations, and they meet every milestone we’ve set on the timeline, in spite of significant scope creep. This is a challenging project, and they’ve delivered excellent quality work on time or ahead of schedule.

How did JetRockets perform from a project management standpoint?

They provide a lot of transparency, and their work is easy to audit. They’re very reliable, and their project manager is extremely responsive. She was in touch with me over Thanksgiving because they had a question and wanted to be sure they could move forward.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their reliability and communication flow are strong. The interest they take in their work makes them truly unique. They are a collaboration partner. They don’t just take marching orders and follow directives, but they respond with thoughtful answers. They care about the work that they do, and take pride in their deliverables. They’re more than a shop we outsource to, they’re an ongoing thought partner.

Are there any areas they could improve?

My only suggestion would be expanding their technology stack. I had to convince my partner to go with Postgres, rather than SQL or another software we were used to. Outside of that, they do well on any project, and provide compelling reasons to hire them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have a clear idea of where you’d like to go. Provide them with guidance, and they will respond with honest, candid feedback.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the owner of Hound & Co., an e-commerce platform that specializes in all things dog-related.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JetRockets?

We had been working with a development company prior to JetRockets in an effort to establish a multi-sided e-commerce marketplace that allowed buyers and sellers to make profiles, process payments, and track orders. The previous company was not able to build what we wanted and left things very disorganized. We needed a new company to clean up their work and get the site up and running.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

JetRockets oversaw all aspects of development, including design and user flow, using Ruby on Rails. They also worked with us to make the sign-up process for buyers and sellers much more user-friendly with a clearly defined UI [User Interface]. They also implemented PayPal as a payment processing system, and set it up to divide payments between our company.

How did you come to work with JetRockets?

My father had worked with them in the past and suggested I reach out after hearing about my trouble with the last development company.

How much have you invested with them?

About $86,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

It's ongoing. The site is live, but we’re continuing to make final adjustments.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We had gotten user feedback early on, coupled with high bounce rates and low time spent per page, that suggested we needed to improve the user flow for buyers and sellers. JetRockets made a few suggestions that included adding a banner for buyers that allowed them to easily access the site’s main features, as well as a more clearly-defined UI for sellers that guided them through the sign-up process. These additional features helped us to retain users on both sides.

Also, we initially implemented Stripe as a payment processing system, but quickly realized that sellers were hesitant to provide their financial information with a service that they had never heard of. When we decided to switch over to PayPal, JetRockets made the transition without any problems. Sellers are now much more confident sharing the necessary information while making an account.

How did JetRockets perform from a project management standpoint?

We used Asana to track progress, prioritize tasks, and delegate based on order of importance. As for communication, we usually spoke via Skype, email, or phone. If something crucial came up after-hours, they would reliably respond and address the issue in real time. They were great to work with.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are extremely trustworthy. Although they hadn’t worked with multi-sided e-commerce platforms before, they were able to build a marketplace that met all our requirements. Developers will always say that they’re able to take on a project, even if sometimes they can’t. I knew that I could trust JetRockets to figure things out and do the project right. They were very organized and worked efficiently.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, none that I can think of.

Advice for potential customers?

Have a clear outline of what you’re looking for. If you can imagine it, they can do it. You can always ask them for advice, but just make sure to have clearly-outlined expectations.
