Feedback summary: 

The finished platform surpassed its 3-month customer goal by over 10x, which contributed to exponential business growth. JustCoded’s responsiveness, adherence to aggressive deadlines, and scalable resources continue to impress.   

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 managing partner of a community of creative agencies called Agency Collective. We help agencies grow their businesses. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JustCoded?

JustCoded and I go back many years. I used to run a UX agency before this. We did a lot of design work on complex, custom-built systems like CRM [customer relationship management], loan application processes, and alternative investment platforms. We didn’t have that skill or knowledge in-house at my agency, and JustCoded had been recommended to me by a mentor. We ended up outsourcing lots of our development work to JustCoded during that period.

Now, our business case has changed. I’ve used JustCoded occasionally when we need an API integration or something like that. I’m also recommending them to our members who have business challenges that require a partner like JustCoded. All of the people I’ve recommended them to have given really positive responses about the experience. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had a high-profile client in the UK that we built a community platform for based on WordPress. JustCoded is great with PHP, so they’re good with WordPress, Magento, and a lot of custom-built stuff. I believe they use Symfony as a framework.

They built the underlying technology for the community on WordPress, integrated all the different plugins, customized plugins when needed, and did the frontend and the backend. It was a pretty hefty project. There was a member profile area, and all the profiles had to be depicted on a map. A payment system was integrated into that. There was a library of over a thousand pieces of content that had to be filtered in different ways. We needed a very powerful search function behind it as well.

The client had specific branding, so the designs we created needed to be replicated once on the frontend; otherwise, they wouldn’t have passed. That was a real challenge, and JustCoded resolved that very well. I know they’ve done a lot of mobile work, but I’ve never worked with them on that type of project.

It’s been a couple years since we worked together, and I don’t remember our format. I think they now have over 60 staff members, but back then they were smaller. I always worked with a project manager, a lead developer, and possibly a couple of junior developers who would support the lead. I don’t know how that has evolved, and I’m pretty sure they’ve got a CTO on board now.

How did you come to work with JustCoded?

We went through a long period of searching for a development partner. We looked everywhere in Asia, Southeast Asia, and Eastern Europe. We always had problems with anyone we came across, and things never worked the way we thought due to communication barriers. JustCoded was recommended to me by a trusted source who was my mentor at the time.

When I started working with them, everything began running smoothly. We did a little test project, and I thought it was brilliant. The cost-to-value ratio was great as well. I can think of 25 companies I’ve worked with in different countries, but none delivered like JustCoded did. I’m still getting the same feedback from people I’ve introduced them to, which is great.

How much have you invested with JustCoded?

We’ve spent £60,000–£80,000 [$75,997–$101,311]. That’s a rough figure. I’ve worked with them for long enough to know that they’re good.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in either 2013 or 2014. Whenever we have something come up in our business, I definitely give them the first bid. It’s still an ongoing partnership, but it hasn’t been as substantial because we don’t do major projects anymore. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I can’t give actual numbers. For the project, our client’s aim was to get 100 customers on that system within the first 3 months, and they ended up having over 1,000 within 6 months. I think they actually merged with another organization, which took over as a result. It was a major success for them.

How did JustCoded perform from a project management standpoint?

They really impressed me and never complained about the work. They always questioned tasks to stay on the right track and find the best options. That was something I always appreciated when working with them. They would make suggestions but always acknowledge that it was my decision in the end. I often took their advice, which ended up being the better solution.

We used Trello, and that worked really well for our partnership. They use different tools depending on who they’re working with.

What did you find most impressive about JustCoded?

They were able to translate a lot of designs on the frontend to perfection. I was very impressed with their responsiveness as well. I’ve struggled in this area with other companies. They just wouldn’t pay that extra attention to detail from a frontend point of view.

Konstantin [CEO, JustCoded] is quite proactive. He travels to his clients’ locations, which shows that relationships are really important to him. Sometimes, when you work with an overseas outsource partner, you don’t really know what they’re like. Konstantin takes a lot of pride in building close relationships with his clients. I think that’s a good sign of how JustCoded is run.

Are there any areas JustCoded could improve?

No, I don’t have any critiques at this stage. It’s been a while since I worked with them, but nothing came up in the past. Whenever there were issues, they always ended up coming from my company’s side.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The website has significantly progressed both speed- and traffic-wise due to its mobile compatibility and sophisticated framework. New project management has improved previous issues with communication, while transparency continues to foster trust. JustCoded’s technical prowess is distinctive.

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 publisher of a global platform for architecture and design with 20 people and offices in Amsterdam and Toronto.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JustCoded?

JustCoded needed to translate our plans into a working framework to make a website exactly how we wanted it. They're the builders and the engine behind the platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We made the actual web design ourselves. JustCoded did the frontend mock-up based on our design and the backend. Another company made the website. The website was previously on Drupal 6, and we are now migrating to Yii 2.0 PHP platform.

There's one full-time and one part-time coder. Someone is doing the mock-up, who may be full-time. Someone is doing the QA. Then there's the project manager, who is not doing a lot because we directly do the project management ourselves.

How did you come to work with JustCoded?

I found JustCoded through Google searching “Drupal” when we worked at our previous company. We found them and asked for references. It was a gamble, but we started with them.

How much have you invested with JustCoded?

It’s been roughly €250,000 ($266,100 USD) in those four years split across €50,000 ($53,200 USD) per year.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with JustCoded four years ago in 2013. We're still working with them. They're now making our new website.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

People like the design of our website. Metrics are difficult because we're now in the middle of a new website. They built a lot of pages, but the statistics don't really influence that because that's not their part. They are facilitating, so they make what we want. They're more technical with it, so you cannot really put that towards their angle.

How did JustCoded perform from a project management standpoint?

I had some communication challenges with different project managers.

What did you find most impressive about JustCoded?

JustCoded is distinguished by how technically good they are. However, it’s difficult for me to compare because I’ve only worked with three different companies.

Are there any areas JustCoded could improve?

JustCoded could work on their communication and project management. Over three years, I got three different project managers, which is why you need a project manager on your side. It’s okay, but that can be improved. It’s also organic that we do the project management ourselves because we can do it.

UPDATED REVIEW

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of a global platform for the architecture and design community.

What challenge were you trying to address with JustCoded?

We wanted to move to a completely new interface and framework.

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built and migrated us from a Drupal 6 framework to a completely new one on Yii. They also did the programming, project management, and actual migration to an Amazon server. They also wrote the code and did QA to make sure everything worked. I delivered the functional design and graphics.

We were 20% finished during the last review, but it’s now live. We’re going to further develop the site with them. They will also help with maintenance and enhancing the SEO. We have a lot of new tools that they’re not finished with yet.

What is the team composition?

I’ve worked with the senior programmer, a project manager, and the CEO. I didn’t work directly with the other people involved.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project has taken about two years.

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

Everything is 10 times better than it was, which was the whole aim. We now have an extremely fast website that attracts a lot more users. The old one had a lot of troubles, but the new framework is state of the art and completely compatible with any mobile device.

How did JustCoded perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very good. I got a new project manager who highly improved the communication issues I mentioned in my last review. She’s very proactive and the project has been going much smoother. We have a solid project management system and can see if everything’s up to date, so I know what I’m paying for.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their technology knowledge impresses me. They come up with improvements all the time and have made our platform so fast. It works great and there are no bugs.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I have no suggestions for improvement.
