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.

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.

Their team handled the deadlines admirably and delivered code that adhered to all development and accessibility standards. The project manager was highly accessible throughout the project and the entire team was pleasant to work with.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the production and operations manager for a full-service web strategy, architecture, and design company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire JustCoded?

We hired them to help us complete the frontend development for a project with a very aggressive schedule.

What were your goals for this project?

Our project had to be executed within a short timeframe, so we needed a team that could commit to our schedule. We also take development seriously. We needed to work with a company that met our standards for clean, well-formatted code and web accessibility.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We got a recommendation from a former employee. After our initial phone calls, we were impressed by the team at JustCoded. They were very amenable to following our accessibility and coding standards.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

They built about a dozen frontend templates for us, some of which required a fair amount of JavaScript. They also oversaw the management of the project and performed the QA testing.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a project manager, two front-end developers, and one QA analyst.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Their work allowed us to meet our commitment to our client. They kept up with our aggressive timeline, delivering clean code that met all our standards. Additionally, because their hourly rate is lower than hours, we were able to complete the project within its allotted budget.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Their project manager was delightful to work with. He kept us in the loop, communicated often, and really seemed to enjoy the project.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

This is the first overseas contractor we’ve worked with that communicated well, asked great questions, and delivered excellent work. They were also pleasant and fun to work with, which was a nice bonus. I’d definitely work with them again or recommend them to others.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

We had to work with them on ensuring that we had enough time for back-and-forth during the QA process.

Feedback summary: 

User feedback of the site is positive and the process was successful. JustCoded were strong project managers. They gave transparent estimates and were flexible in the face of changing requirements. They offered good advice and established a solid working relationship.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the CTO of a property investment company based in London. In 2017, we launched a crowdfunding platform that makes property investments accessible to the general populace.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JustCoded?

We wanted to develop and launch our crowdfunding platform. We were using some white label products in the crowdfunding space as the basis for our backend software, but wanted a team to help us do all the frontend development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They linked our platform to the white label software products, via APIs. They’ve done effective work on the website and developed and tested the site based on our requirements. They enabled us to launch our core functionality to allow people to invest in properties. We can now take specific transactions through a variety of financial channels, including ISAs and pension schemes in the UK.

What is the team composition?

I worked with their CEO, two product managers, and a few other team members. They also have an internal team of developers and testers that I didn’t normally interface with directly.

How did you come to work with JustCoded?

They were recommended by the company that built the white label portion of the platform. They had good experience with crowdfunding platforms and worked with a number of companies in similar situations. We interviewed them and felt they would suit our needs. The price point was reasonable, so we decided to pursue a relationship with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent in the region of £150,000 (approximately $195,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together around April 2016. The initial launch was in September 2017 and we’ve introduced new functionality since then via various sprints.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Feedback has been very positive. The quality of the website has been very good and our client base enjoys using it. It functions well and is easy to use. The process was very successful and we’re pleased with the outcome.

How did JustCoded perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very good project managers. We agree to a sprint of work in advance and talk through all the details. They give us accurate estimates, which are broken down to a detailed level for us to understand. They repair defects in a reasonable amount of time and are flexible when we add requirements.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their knowledge and experience in the crowdfunding space is unique among standard web developers. They keep up with the evolution in the marketplace and have a good understanding of DIFITEK/CrowdValley, MANGOPAY, GOJI and other financial transaction systems. They also give very good advice and recommended third-party solutions for some of our functionality to make implementation simpler.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, they’re very good. We have a good working relationship with them and they delivered everything we asked for.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder, majority shareholder, and CEO of Karadoo Finance, a peer-to-peer lender in the U.K.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JustCoded?

We needed help with our lending platform for people who want to lend money to people who want to borrow money. The execution is quite complicated. A significant database sits in the background and it has to match transactions and extract data to make sure the right money goes to the right people in both directions.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided the frontend development for our platform. They used our APIs to integrate several service providers. They also developed display functionalities.

What is the team composition?

A large team from JustCoded supports our project. There were 4–5 developers. We also have account managers, QA managers, and project managers.

How did you come to work with JustCoded?

They were recommended to us. Their experience was the critical factor in that decision.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in November 2017 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re going through a hard launch of our first platform. It’s complete and live. Now, they’re moving on to sister platforms, other lending and donation platforms for us.

They understand us. Konstantin (CEO, JustCoded) has a good handle on crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending. He’s done a lot of research and study into this sector. He has a good understanding of the dynamics of the business model. He’s translated that for his developers to build a solution for us.

How did JustCoded perform from a project management standpoint?

We use Trello and Google Sheets. We have an assigned project manager who manages the interaction with their team. They provide specific planning terms of the next sprint, what’s being achieved, what hasn’t been achieved, and what’s been carried over. They have strong communication abilities.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their professionalism and understanding of the peer-to-peer lending sector is impressive. They’re able to translate the market’s requirements into a product and service that we can take to market.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Previously, they sent different developers to different parts of the project at different times and it was very disjointed. We’ve seen much improvement now that they’ve allocated a resource to support our development across all the platforms. That’s been good.

Feedback summary: 

Partnering with JustCoded’s developers offered a higher ROI than would have been available from onboarding an internal technical team. The flawless new platform has already processed over $13,242,490 within the short time since launch, with positive forecasts for scalability and revenue next year.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

CapitalRise is a crowdfunding site that partners with property developers of prime real estate in the UK. We're currently looking to expand outside that area. We offer a cheap source of capital loans to develop at more attractive rates, then pass as much as possible back to the investor.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JustCoded?

We needed to work with a reliable development partner who understood early-stage startups. By partnering with JustCoded, we could develop a high-quality crowdfunding platform at minimal cost.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

JustCoded has pretty much been with us since the beginning. Our engagement had two main components. They built the full frontend for all our brochure websites, as well as the actual investor platforms and user journeys our customers see. JustCoded provided both frontend and backend development resources who work with very high-level technologies. They've also been helping us integrate all the third-party systems we use.

What is the team composition? 

On a day to day basis, I work with Igor (Delivery Director, JustCoded). We work with two developers from JustCoded, Alex (Backend Developer, JustCoded) and Andrew (Markup Developer, JustCoded). I've met their CEO a couple of times, as well. 

How much have you invested with them?

Our total costs are approaching $150,000. We're probably going to increase the rate we spend with them now that we've received our initial seed funding round. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We've been working with JustCoded since the latter half of 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our key success metric was the complete and successful development and delivery of our platform within a very short period. We've already lent around £10 million ($13,242,490 USD) of property loans through the system they built. 

In the next two years, we're hoping to increase that volume to another 150 million pounds. JustCoded built an easily modifiable platform that we've already scaled to date. We'll need it to expand significantly as we push higher and higher volumes of loans through the system.

How did JustCoded perform from a project management standpoint?

Since we don't pay for any project management overhead from JustCoded, I don't expect formal documentation. The volume we're processing at the moment is relatively small, so we have adequate capacity internally. 

The roles JustCoded covers are a frontend and a backend developer, and business analyst who also runs testing. That latter individual undertakes much of the project management from their side. As we scale up, I have been talking to them about fitting in some more management overhead for additional resources, so this process has less of an impact on our side. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

I most appreciate the quality of their talented employees who work quite quickly. JustCoded has a keen ability to take a brief and rapidly turn it into a useful product. It's hard to find developers who genuinely understand the user experience, business, and commercial aspects of a project like they do.

JustCoded has played a much broader role than the typical engineering teams I’m used to working with. They’ve been extremely helpful during my onboarding process as I get up to speed with my company before we scale up. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

None at the moment!

With strong values and integrity, JustCoded exceeds expectations in their delivery. With solid documentation of the scope, responsive communications, and complete fulfillment of their responsibilities, their dedication shows their desire to be the tech partner that succeeds where many have failed.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the CEO and founder of MEO SPORT, a startup company that will go live in the next eight weeks. We connect athletes to brands, offering sponsorship deals.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JustCoded?

Trying to get this project together, I’ve worked with four other development agencies. None of them completed the tasks they were given or did the work within budget.

Coming from a non-technical background, I was looking for a reliable development partner. I needed someone who could translate the vision of what I was trying to create and provide feedback on the best way to build the project, allowing it to scale appropriately. I needed someone to help me manage the project going forward.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

As a startup, we have a few specific ways of releasing the product onto the marketplace. We initially planned to release an MVP in the form of a responsive website. Once we validated the business model and achieved some success, we turned it into a mobile app.

JustCoded developed the full backend of the platform. We used a graphic designer in the U.K. to design some of the pages. JustCoded picked the work up from there, creating the remaining pages we required.

What is the team composition?

I am in touch with Konstantin Boyko, the CEO of the company. Two project managers have been assigned to me during the collaboration. I’ve also dealt a lot with their frontend developer.

How did you come to work with JustCoded?

I had Skype interviews with just under 100 development agencies found on Freelancer and other platforms. From the first conversation with JustCoded, I found them to be on point. They’re a company built on traditional values, and they were in touch with what I was trying to achieve.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with JustCoded in April 2016. We’re set to launch in the next eight weeks and plan to continue working with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our designer was pleased with how her work was converted into our product. It was spot on with no changes or design errors. In terms of what they’ve been responsible for, they’ve nailed it every single time.

How did JustCoded perform from a project management standpoint?

I’ve always found JustCoded to be responsive and focused on getting back to me when they said they would. I consider this to be the key ingredient to a successful relationship.

JustCoded’s documentation has been very good. This was something we were serious about when we first started talking to them; we wanted to make sure we had a solid scope of work to fall back on. Without much guidance from us, their team has kept the scope up-to-date, and they’ve always let us know when there was a possible issue. There was only one mistake, and they quickly corrected it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Everyone on our side who’s worked with them has been impressed. Konstantin went above and beyond to prove that he wanted to build a relationship between our two parties. He visited the U.K. to put pen to paper, which was phenomenal. They’ve also gone beyond their agreement with us making sure that the product would be as good as it could be. Two years later, what the team said to me in the beginning has been the case. Their business values and ambitions have all aligned. JustCoded has been an outstanding company to work with. I will definitely continue working with JustCoded for the foreseeable future, including any other projects I will be involved with.

Feedback summary: 

The completed platform met key technical objectives, simplifying admin responsibilities and providing up-to-date information for visitors. JustCoded’s clear communication, thoughtful feedback, and reasonable price point made the engagement profitable. 

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I've started an online platform that allows users to find venues in certain areas around the world. For now, we are targeting London but will push to other cities in 2018. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire JustCoded?

JustCoded helped with the development of my WordPress site. They specialize in this field and were able to deliver as per my requirements.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted to offer a simple and easily accessible site for users and admin alike that clearly highlighted relevant information. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I found JustCoded after months of searching for the right company. Most vendors over-promised but never delivered.

Describe the project in detail.

JustCoded took my initial designs and broke the work into milestones based on my designs and what I wanted to achieve. My main aim was to have a fully functional site that was accessible and offered clear, up-to-date information.

Explain how the solution addressed your business challenge.

The original site had been built with Bootstrap, which meant that all updates had to use HTML. I wanted the platform to be easier to update, which would streamline my admin responsibilities.

What was the team composition?

JustCoded had a dedicated developer and project manager, and I acted as the designer. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What outcomes or results can you share that demonstrate progress and/or success?

I was determined to finish this project within 3 months. Even though we had some challenges along the way due to my requirements, we still produced a base product that can be updated and expanded in the future.

How effective was the project management?

JustCoded was extremely helpful. We communicate constantly via Skype and arranged other calls if any issues arose. They exhausted every solution to make sure we stayed within the budget.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They communicate clearly, which helped us to achieve our goals and meet our clients’ needs on time and within budget. They’re also highly knowledgeable about WordPress.

What tips or recommendations do you have?

Don’t be afraid to take JustCoded’s directions to heart. As a business owner, I often think I know what's best for my company, but listening to someone else's feedback can be helpful at times.

Also, as a designer, I always want to push boundaries, which can produce great results but increase costs. I’d suggest thoroughly planning, testing, and executing your concept because once a project starts, changing the scope can be costly. Regardless, JustCoded has been a great partner, and I’ll certainly consider them for other projects going forward.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Impeccable organization and constant availability made them a great partner to work with under pressure. Code was written meticulously, and required very little quality control.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm a consultant, and for this project I was working with a marketing, branding, and digital agency that focuses mainly on web design.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JustCoded?

We had a very tight deadline that required us to design and create a website in 2-3 weeks. I needed a team that was qualified and worked faster than a typical development team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I sent them our ideas for the design in a PSD (Photoshop Doc) file, and they gave me price estimates. Once we agreed on the estimate, I gave the desktop and mobile files to the team and they set up different print. They provided a timeline that was the most organized I'd seen with a development team. After every sprint they would deliver exactly what they say they would deliver, I would review the work with the agency, and we would move to the next sprint. All development was done in WordPress. Unlike many development firms that I’ve worked with in the past, the initial estimate they provided was exactly what we ended up paying for their services.

What is the team composition?

Sabina [Business Development Manager, JustCoded], Alina and Karina [Account Managers, JustCoded] oversaw my client's account. They were all in constant communication throughout the process.

How did you come to work with JustCoded?

I attended a web design competition in Los Angeles at one point, and they happened to be a judge at the event. I did some research on them afterwards and was very impressed by their portfolio. I then reached out to them to discuss pricing, and their standard rate was the main reason I ended up working with them. The rate that they charge for their level of expertise is a huge advantage.

How much have you invested with them?

The original project was between $10,000-$15,000, but my client has between $50,000-$150,000 in the pipeline. They have been very pleased with the work.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started to establish a working relationship in June of 2017, and started this first web development project in October 2017. They completed it within the 3-week period, and we’re continuing to work together on other projects.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

There isn’t much specific information as of right now. I can say that there were only 1-2 rounds of quality control, as opposed to the usual 7-8 rounds that are needed with a typical development agency.

How did JustCoded perform from a project management standpoint?

They were the most organized development agency I have ever worked with. It seemed like they were always available even with the time difference, which really surprised me. We communicated mostly via email and Skype/Facetime, and provided my client with detailed time reports over the course of the project. They were great to work with.

What did you find most impressive about them?

As I mentioned, they were extremely organized throughout the project, and they were able to deliver everything on time as a result.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not that I can think of.
