BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Glenhawk are an experienced team for the property finance industry founded in 2018. They offer the capabilities to speed-up, simplify and bring transparency to short term property finance. Now a leading visionary in the market, they pride themselves on their ability to understand their clients needs. I am the Freelance Senior Designer within the Marketing Team.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire JustCoded?

Glenhawk where in need of a brand refresh and wanted to update their website within the Property Finance marketplace. They are experiencing rapid growth and attracting a lot of good press. With the introduction of new product offerings to clients and an increasing team it was time to inject their brand values and character into their website to make a bold statement within their industry and attract new business.

What were your goals for this project?

The solution had to be responsive, customisable for site maintenance and user friendly for their customers looking to get in contact with Glenhawk’s team on various devices. It needed to be built with Wordpress as it was a familiar platform used by the Marketing team and the CMS is relatively simple to use to make future updates.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were recommended by myself as I have worked with JustCoded previously on other projects at different agencies and knew the standard of their work. They are a great team to collaborate with and always strive to find a solution or even enhance a design feature to make the UX as efficient as possible.

Lastly, they have been the only development team that have managed to replicate my designs down to the pixel. This is important for a designer as we care about the aesthetics as well as the functionality.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They developed, configured and built a CMS for us which gave great flexibility. The project started with a Skype call discussing the design, functionalities and the particular elements we wanted the site to feature to make it not only UX friendly but useful as a tool.

Once the designs were approved, and the stylesheets finalised, the designs were sent across. They came back with any queries they had, which were answered by myself or the Head of Marketing, and gave us a scope for the duration of the project and what was to be actioned during each sprint.

The sprints were around 1 - 2 weeks with a demonstration of progress made weekly. At the end of each sprint we gave feedback to make amends and they we actioned quite quickly.

What was the team composition?

The team comprised of 1 Designer, 2 Project Manager, 2 Developers (1 Front End, 1 Backend). We were the same team that saw the progress and production of the website from start to finish. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

During this project they have incorporated some cool micro animations to elements of the site that gave the overall experience of the site more charm and that is one of the many things I like about this company they truly like to collaborate and innovate.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Project was management by both teams development side and client side. They had two members oversee the project to ensure deliverables were met and that the work was being achieved within budget with the right amount of resource. 

On client side we managed any additional design requests or changes that were needed during the duration of the project. Communication was very fluid as we spoke via email or Skype. Email mainly for sprint feedback and Skype for quick requests and questions that needed answering quickly.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team from JustCoded is fast and always willing to provide helpful suggestions. There have been times where something may have been overlooked by our part and they are quick to point it out so we can make amends.

They are very detailed in their feedback and breakdowns and they have a great eye for detail when it comes to matching the build to the design. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

When we got the initial breakdown for the scope of the project it was so detailed that it almost became more work just trying to understand how the budget was being distributed for resource which resulted in a call to get some clarify.

After that all was understood so, maybe I would suggest them giving more of a top level overview of their breakdowns so it isn't so granular. But apart from that everything else has been nothing but great.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Director of Sales and Marketing at The Intern Group (TIG). TIG offers international internship programs in 15+ destinations to students from across the globe.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire JustCoded?

TIG needed an updated website from a technical and design perspective. We were hit with a Google algorithm which meant we needed a completely new site.

What were your goals for this project?

Increase conversion rate from traffic to application. Increase website speed according to google page speed insights. Increase organic traffic from Google.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

My team reviewed a number of vendors in the region. We created a short list and eventually hired Just Coded based on perceived value for money and their expertise in WordPress.

Describe the project in detail.

Just Coded did a tech review of our existing site to validate work we did with our SEO firm. They confirmed that we could not fix our existing site and needed to start our new website from scratch. They then presented us with the mock ups and design for our new site page by page.

We went through many drafts and iterations until it looked the way we wanted it to look according to the requirements document we had sent Just Coded at the beginning. And then Just Coded went into development as we approved each page. We had a tight timeline, and doing both design and dev alongside each other proved to speed the project up. We then launched the site and continued to optimize until we were hitting our goals. This lasted for 4 months after we initially launched.

What was the team composition?

We had our Head of Marketing leading the charge on our behalf. The Just Coded team that was dedicated to us was comprised of a UX/UI Designer, a FE and BE developer as well as a project manager. They also had a team doing QA and testing, but we never interacted with that them from memory.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

From a technical perspective, Just Coded has proven to be true WordPress experts. We were very happy when our SEO firm ran a tech audit in the site they created that mostly everything came back positive. And any tweaks we needed to make, we did. After we launched the site, our speed increased and the conversion rate was higher than on our previous site. We continued to work with JC to continuously make changes and tweaks to the site to make sure we were hitting all of the goals we had set.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

I think that this is the main opportunity for improvement from Just Coded. We had a disorganized project manager which made the experience stressful for both Just Coded and TIG. However, when we highlighted the struggles, JC immediately escalated our case to the Delivery Director, Igor, who is very talented and got our project back on track. Now, we are working with a new project manager who is a good improvement.

Throughout the project there were disagreements over what was agreed initially in the scope. My suggestion to JC is to make sure there is a very detailed project scope before going into the work so everyone is on the same page with what is to be completed. We had sent over a requirements document at the very beginning but I quickly learned that it was not detailed enough.

This was also my main learning on our end that when working with 3rd parties on projects, always make sure that both sides are very clear on the SOW. There was no urgency from JC to have this, so we proceeded anyway. This caused pain later.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The finished product came out very well. There is good technical knowledge on their team. They worked with our tight deadlines and made it all happen.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Purely my point on communication and having a detailed project scope before starting a project with a client.

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 business director at Effection, a small, independent digital studio based in London.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JustCoded?

We were looking for a team to build the digital products that we were designing. The main help we needed was around web development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They helped with web development. In some instances, they were coming up with solutions for us as well. All the sites we did with them were WordPress sites. Most of the sites are simple: They’re not transactional websites.

We managed the website from our side in terms of the scoping, user experience, and user interface. Once it got into wireframes and positioning, we’d get JustCoded involved and get their thoughts and feedback. We handed them the wireframes and designs and they built it.

After that, we’d hand it to them for development in which they worked in sprints. We had some occasions with very tight deadlines. There was one instance where we had seven websites that all needed to be launched before Christmas.

What is the team composition?

There were a project manager and an account director.

How did you come to work with JustCoded?

Initially, we met their business director at a conference. She seemed incredibly knowledgeable about web building. We tested it with a couple of web projects and they were incredibly efficient. They are a very finely tuned business and are able to advise things that were out of our realms of knowledge. We initiated a really good relationship with the key members of that team. Due to the success of working with them, we ended up scaling up the work that we did.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested $20,000-$30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in November 2017 until March 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The quality of their work is really high. They’ve always delivered. They were excellent at helping us get projects launched in time and staying within budget.

How did JustCoded perform from a project management standpoint?

We had a great project manager who would inform us of each sprint. They’re incredibly efficient with timing. When they quote the project until delivery, they’re quite spot on. They make sure to stay in budget and give full reports. They communicate throughout the process. We work in Sketch and InVision. They were very good at checking in and making sure they were supporting us or allocating resources.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They manage their processes very well. They have such a good process in place that you feel very confident in the project and how they’re approaching it. They’re great at helping us if we need to quote early stages for a client before they’ve seen a wireframe. They can give us some guidance, which is quite important for us because we’re a small company. We share new business plans so they can see what’s in the pipeline.

Are there any areas they could improve?

After a project has gone live, there’s a lot of tweaking that goes on with a client. We need to respond to those for our clients quite quickly. Once a project was live with JustCoded, it was quite hard to get them booked. All of those tweaks then incurred more costs. That was our only challenge.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Strategy & Marketing Director for a startup neuroexperience company in Singapore called Rebel & Soul. We have a proprietary neuroscience methodology that we apply to create memorable brand experiences.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire JustCoded?

We used JustCoded for the UX and design component for our website. Not only did we need an entirely new site, but we needed a new look & feel too!

What were your goals for this project?

We needed a new brand identity that stood out and a design that was simple, easy to use and educational from a users perspectives (as we were creating a new industry niche)

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We came across JustCoded after doing an extensive search both locally and globally. Dealing with JC was easy from a clients perspective - they use all the right tools and processes, and create a team and workflow whereby everyone is working on the project together.

Describe the project in detail.

Once we selected JustCoded, there were a series of discovery meetings whereby JC seeked to understand our brief in further detail as well as the strategy for the business. We

What was the team composition?

Web lead went through to Bus Dev Manager who was super helpful, knowledgable about JC the work they do and the process moving forward. Once I confirmed we wanted to move ahead I was assigned an Account Manager whom got all the documentation ready, and was also responsible for billings.

Once all documentation was approved, I was then passed over to the Project Manager who led the project. I had bi-weekly sprint calls with both the PM and Designer which was really time consuming, but super helpful to have everyone on the call. Meant the entire project moved quickly!

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We are, for the first time, seeing lots of web leads coming through via contacts, credentials and whitepaper downloads. This is as a result of our new brand in market and external marketing efforts, but the new website was the catalyst for who we are out in market today. We're seeing lots of traction and intrigue around the 'neuroexperience' niche we have created.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

As mentioned above we caught up twice a week. The time difference was a little tricky to manoeuvre and meant I did extra long hours on the two days we caught up, but all in all is was a very efficient process and workflow.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They helped us push our design boundaries by getting us to think differently. We were also impressed with the efficiency of their process and their knowledge of the industry/new tech/new design trends

Are there any areas for improvement?

The only area for improvement is sending over rough schedule (so I can manage internal stakeholders/diaries) and requirements more in advance. Upfront I felt I was constantly chasing for the information JC needed from us - as I wanted to ensure we had everything ready to go at kickoff. I Managing my time and requirements upfront. Unfortunately for me it was a lot of scrambling in the beginning to try and meet requirements and deadlines.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

The company I work for is called Paal15 and it’s a strategic marketing agency. My role within the company is as the creative director.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JustCoded?

The last two projects we did with them were website development related, so we design complete web-based experiences and needed someone to develop the code to run everything.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our team develops the graphic design of all the pages and any elements that need to live on the website, such as custom animations or interactions that will occur there. We define those requirements, and then they develop that into working code.

We use Scratch for designing the websites and Principal for prototyping animations and they help us translate that into a workable WordPress website from both the front- and backend. They handle everything from making sure the website is responsive, to ensuring it functions on any kind of web browser or device the user might have.

What is the team composition?

I’m not sure how many developers from their site actually worked on the project, but we worked with one account manager and project manager. He was focused on ensuring overall timelines and scope, and the financing side of things. We were also involved with one project manager who is also quite knowledgeable on the development side as well, who we would talk with about actual details of the design and development.

How did you come to work with JustCoded?

We were searching for a new development partner and looked at a lot of agencies, but liked JustCoded in particular because of their presence in the financial technology space, which is one of our core audiences. We started talking and realized that they would be able to be both things for us, from both the web development perspective and also from a platform development and application perspective as well.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around €18,000 (approximately $20,200 USD) in total.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from February–June 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

From a technical perspective, there is a very good level of functionality and reliability in all the features they’ve added to the site. I think for us it was really important that they understood our vision of what we were trying to achieve. They did their job very well in that regard and really worked with us to try to bring that to life.

How did JustCoded perform from a project management standpoint?

It feels like they’re invested in the relationship and actually doing the work right, so they structure the whole process from start to finish in a way that really allows us to manage the project from our end and be confident that they would deliver. We had a call with our project manager twice a week and would communicate more frequently through email, Skype, and Google Sheets to make sure that all of our questions were being answered.

We had occasional moments where there was some lack of clarity in terms of delivery time and budget, but in the end, it worked out very well. They modified their development process to a more agile method during our work with them. That gave us a lot more flexibility in being able to adjust as we went, but it also cost a bit of clarity at times on when we would be done.

What did you find most impressive about them?

One of the things I appreciated was their commitment to focus on UX during development. They framed the whole project around trying to deliver better experiences and better best practices and were a lot of help in that regard. Rather than being handed the design, they tried to be as involved in the process to improve their understanding of what we wanted the site to be able to do in the end.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The only thing I’d like to see improve is for them to establish a clearer project timeline and budgeting process.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I would give the advice to ensure that the scope and all of those decisions have been completely finished before you start so that you don’t end up with any surprises down the line, both on your end and theirs.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

All parties involved were pleased with JustCoded’s development expertise. Their team is proactive and hardworking, taking scope changes in stride. Despite differences with their team, they were communicative, skilled, and dedicated.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Fuseideas is a marketing and advertising agency that does a variety of work for our clients. My title is engineering director. I lead the engineering team that builds websites and other technical projects.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JustCoded?

We needed assistance with frontend development on a big project. It was a large amount of work, and we didn’t have enough staff or time to go through a hiring process for more developers. After a lengthy vetting process, we hired JustCoded to complete HTML, JavaScript, and CSS work for the frontend of the site.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

After discussing the specifications and the task at hand, we provided JustCoded with the designs and details. We frequently talked to make sure that they understood everything that was needed. They would take the design and turn it into HTML, implementing JavaScript and CSS where needed.

Following that, we integrated their work into the CMS to get it working with our backend functionalities. Whenever we needed more work, we would pass it back to them, describing what we needed for the JavaScript or CSS aspect. They would make those changes before moving on to the next element. There were about 20 different templates that had different activities with various images and videos. They also performed some QA work and testing towards the end of the project.

What is the team composition?

Sabina (Business Development Manager, JustCoded) was our initial contact, and Vadim (Account Manager, JustCoded) was our project manager. Two developers changed at various times due to their availability.

How did you come to work with JustCoded?

JustCoded sent emails that advertised their services, which we kept and ended up going back to. After getting in touch with them, we tested them out, viewed their skills on their company website, and asked for samples of previous work. They seemed skilled in what we were looking for.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together between March 2018–2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I was satisfied with the work JustCoded completed. The client was even happier. The site launched on time, and we’re currently in maintenance mode. We’ve taken over on the frontend side now that the heavy work is done. We certainly didn’t stop working with JustCoded because of anything negative; we didn’t need their labor anymore.

The results were excellent. The JavaScript code was quite complicated and suitable. The designs were also great. If we come across another similar project, we would have no problem working with JustCoded again.

How did JustCoded perform from a project management standpoint?

JustCoded did a fantastic job of communicating with us. Vadim was proactive, keeping us in the know over any contract renewals, holidays, or vacation time. Sabina was prompt in setting up meetings. She was always willing to get on the phone and talk at any time.

I’m based in Europe, so I’m used to not communicating with native English speakers. But for people in our Boston office, it’s not something they regularly deal with. Sabina lived in the US for a period of time, so communicating with her was seamless. Everybody understood what was expected from both sides of the deal. They were simply easy to get along with.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s nice that some of them are more design-oriented whereas others are more JavaScript-oriented. Their team works together seamlessly, automating the entire process. They also got along well with our development team. Unfortunately, a number of times the client decided to change aspects of the project and work had to be scrapped. Sometimes people get frustrated at redoing their work, but their team was open. JustCoded rolled with the punches, working hard to deliver their best work.

There were times when we were waiting on approval for certain pieces of work. Instead of sitting around, their team would let us know that they would be finished with a task and needed something else to work on. They were proactive about making sure work was getting done. They didn’t sit around and get paid for nothing.  

Are there any areas they could improve?

JustCoded is a smaller company with a lot of other work to do, so I understand that this happens. But we had a great set of guys in the beginning that ended up changing and were put on another project. The continuity was a bit troublesome. New developers had to learn and get comfortable, which may have slowed down the process, even though the work was still delivered quickly.

If we were to go back and work with them on another project, I would stipulate ahead of time that we would work with the same people throughout the project. I believe that produces higher quality work and processes.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be open to communication. Sometimes it’s difficult when you’re not sitting in an office and can’t walk over to their desk and relate what you need. JustCoded is a distance away from us, and even farther from our team in Boston. You have to get on the phone rather than assuming somebody understands what they need to do. Make sure they truly understand. That’s a general guideline I would recommend to anybody who is working with a consultant or anyone externally.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the head of digital customer experience for a shared workspace real estate company. We’re home to one of the most creative, exciting, and forward-thinking working communities in the UK.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire JustCoded?

JustCoded assisted in developing, migrating, and implementing a new WordPress site. They also helped extend the multi-siting and multi-language capability of our CMS as well as launching a regional landing page.

What were your goals for this project?

The project had a drop-dead deadline, and we needed to carry out the work during the Christmas season. Also, the solution had to work seamlessly with the existing website and database, and it needed to work with a less-than-perfect codebase.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We have been working with JustCoded for several years now, and the professionalism and care that they’ve put into their work have been outstanding. JustCoded is definitely a partner to do repeat business with.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They created a responsive design for our new website, provided multi-language and multi-region support, and further developed our CMS.

What was the team composition?

I liaised with Uliana (Project Manager, JustCoded) but am unsure how many developers were allocated to the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They delivered the project on time for launch.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Uliana was exceptionally good at coordinating the project, providing accurate estimates and delivering the work without requiring tons of documentation. The balance between asking for clarification and working independently was perfect. When the development team had questions, they would reach out through Uliana.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed by their quality and speed.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I can't think of any.

Feedback summary: 

The contributions from the JustCoded team ensured the finished platform is high quality and well thought-out. They are flexible and knowledgeable, helping to build a fit-for-purpose solution while providing excellent suggestions and ideas.

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 one of the co-founders of a business, design, and go-to-market agency, working especially with tech companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JustCoded?

We’ve worked with them on several projects, ranging from websites, web apps and mobile apps to some bigger projects. One of those involved developing a platform to service a couple of our customers. It allows them to identify and asses their risks and to see how they can assign project management tasks to relevant stakeholders and monitor their progress.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We provided them with some basic ideas, wireframes, and definitions of everything we wanted them to do, and they helped with translating and optimizing them into a more user-friendly flow and interface. They gave us good suggestions, which we discussed and considered how to design the platform in a way that delivered our goals with the best experience. Their help in designing the look and functionality was invaluable.

What is the team composition?

We worked with the CEO in the beginning to get the rough outlines for the project and then with someone who managed the project. Two others helped us with wireframing, user flows, and parts of the project management. Finally, a couple of other members gave us information about the organizational and finance side, including the scope, time logs, and the start and end of sprints. There were 5–7 people in total.

How did you come to work with JustCoded?

One of my co-founders was introduced to their CEO, based on a reference from someone that has worked with them before. We engaged with them for this project because of the good experiences we’d had with smaller projects in the past, and because we’ve developed a good relationship with the CEO.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

This project ran from May 2018–March 2019. We’re currently working with them on several other website-related projects.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They helped us improve the quality of our end product. I can't measure it in terms of the number of visitors or better performance, but they added to the quality compared to what we initially came up with.

How did JustCoded perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re flexible and try to find solutions for whatever problems we run into during such a project. They provide us with options and the pros and cons of each so that we can make a decision. The team is nice, friendly, and informal. They might have used project management tools internally, but we received overviews in the form of Excel or Google spreadsheets.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I really liked their mindset—they're always thinking of opportunities for how they can help us, going outside of the box. I’m impressed by their management team at the C level, who are always looking for new business opportunities. They’re open to feedback, manage expectations upfront, and sell their product as a solution that includes everything we need.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I have nothing negative to say.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

No, I can't name anything specific.

Feedback summary: 

JustCoded delivered a high-quality platform that facilities growth within a niche community. They produced and implemented a stable codebase. As a result, the website functions as a foundation for future progress. Their team took over a previously unorganized project with grace and professionalism.

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 Creative Debuts. We sell and rent artwork from emerging artists. We also do corporate projects by commissioning artists through our rental system.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JustCoded?

We wanted to have a platform where artists could create free portfolios of their work. Additionally, we wanted the platform to function as an online marketplace. Lacking the technical expertise to complete the project ourselves, we needed an experienced development firm to build the website.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

JustCoded built out our platform using WordPress. Another firm worked with us on the website’s design elements, but JustCoded supported that process as well. However, their primary responsibilities involved the construction and implementation of code. They created an efficient online shopping portal using WooCommerce. That integration enables artists to upload their work and run a personalized store of sorts. That feature is optional, so users can just use our site to host their portfolio if they’re so inclined.

Overall, the platform is all about user-generated content. Artists get to upload that work, show off their talents, and connect with other art aficionados. That kind of networking allows artists to meet new clients as well. We’re a bridge between our artist community and opportunity.

What is the team composition?

Their project manager acted as our primary point of contact.

How did you come to work with JustCoded?

We hired a third-party provider that subcontracted JustCoded to build our website. However, that provider was unorganized and removed themselves from the engagement reasonably quickly. JustCoded was committed to delivering what they promised, so we ended up working with them directly. It was quite a rollercoaster experience.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around £50,000 (approximately $64,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

This project took place from August 2016–January 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

JustCoded delivered a presentable, modern, and intuitive platform. The new website is live, and it’s definitely a step in the right direction for us. We’re proud of the platform and are confident it will serve as a foundation for future developments. We’re always looking to increase web traffic or the number of artwork uploads, but this project was more focused on moving our brand forward. JustCoded helped us get to a point that sets us up for growth. We measured their success by the platform’s functionality.

How did JustCoded perform from a project management standpoint?

Their ability to communicate and establish project timelines was adequate, but could likely be improved. They’d provide outlines whenever we wanted something changed, but those could’ve been delivered faster. Considering how the previous agency left the project, I can’t hold much against JustCoded.

What did you find most impressive about them?

What did you find most impressive about them?

JustCoded has the experience and work ethic to build things properly. Other developers and engineers have looked at our website and ensured me that it’s structurally sound. The previous agency left the project in shambles, but JustCoded did what they could salvage what we’d put into it. They were considerate of our situation and handled everything immaculately.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The website could have a more efficient user journey, but that oversight is primarily due to the previous agency’s proclivity to miscommunicate.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Communicating project expectations from the onset will help eliminate challenges further down the road.
