The developer successfully delivered the website, meeting the expectations of the internal team. Kaynes establishes a smooth workflow, ensuring a comfortable and collaborative experience. The team is knowledgeable and hard-working.

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 owner at NW Tech Event IT. I primarily build websites and web apps.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Kaynes?

I needed additional development help.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

It took 2-3 weeks when they presented the first candidate who wasn’t a really good fit. They later had another one who was quite good. They helped develop a big coffee website. From there, we did some side projects as well.

What is the team composition?

I work with one PHP developer from Kaynes.

How did you come to work with Kaynes?

I found them through a Google search. After looking at their website, I called them to find out what they’re like and they said they’d find a guy for me. 

How much have you invested with them?

We have invested about $27,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement with Kaynes ran from April 2019–January 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It was quite relaxed and comfortable working with them. They’re very professional. Kaynes really knew what I wanted, which was really helpful because I’d never written any job descriptions before. I would consider working with them again.

How did Kaynes perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated using Google Hangouts and over email and they were always responsive. The team was always helpful when I had special requirements.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re exceptionally helpful. When I’m too busy to take care of my employees, they helped me as well. It was really good.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, everything was fine.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have a good idea of what you want and describe the project very detailed. Listen to feedback about improvements and suggestions. Allow them a few weeks to find guys.
