The Review
Feedback summary: 

Early user feedback is positive on both design and functionality. Excellent project management was characterized by consistent follow-up and on-time delivery. KindGeek’s commitment, reliability, and precision contribute to high client satisfaction.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-founder of a startup with a digital peer-to-peer marketplace.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with KindGeek?

We needed a production partner to develop the software for our project.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

KindGeek developed our web platform from scratch in React, building the frontend and the creating the backend logic. The platform that allows users to create profiles for clients to book personal shopping trips with them. There’s a calendar function to view availability and Stripe is integrated for automatic payments.

They started with the discovery phase, listening to our needs and coming up with suggestions for how to shape our idea into a compelling product. Following that initial phase, we started analyzing features. We went live in October. We’re still fixing bugs, continuously improving features, and updating, but the platform is up and running.

What is the team composition?

Our main contract at the beginning was the CEO. Then we worked with a full-time business analyst. We had a time-and-materials contract so our teams were composed on-demand when we needed specific resources rather than having a dedicated team. At peak times we worked with two frontend developers, two backend developers, a Q&A person, and a lead architect.

How did you come to work with KindGeek?

We were looking for a partner in Ukraine since we’d heard that there were competent options there with attractive pricing. We did some internet research and found KindGeek. We set up a call with the CEO and browsed the sites of their clients. We spotted a Swiss startup they had worked with and asked them for a reference. We only heard positive feedback so decided to give them a try. We used the discovery phase as a test and they convinced us.

We had looked at a handful of other companies. We initially spent a couple of months working with an Indian company, which didn’t work out. We also compared some Swiss development partners that were closer in proximity to us. However, in terms of the quality and the price, KindGeek outperformed all of those.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from March to October 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I primarily have qualitative feedback on the UI and UX of our website. We hear positive feedback from early users that the design is appealing and they find the platform intuitive and straightforward. We’re extremely satisfied.

How did KindGeek perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicate via Slack and have calls through Google Hangouts. We use Jira as well as Sketch for design.

Our deadline had been set from the beginning as we had an important pitch event here in Switzerland for which we promised to have our product ready. They managed to meet that. They follow up on tasks and complete them with precision.

Our business analyst was outstanding in terms of communications and punctuality. Without her, I'm not sure we would be where we are today. Project management was really the best part of our experience. This was thanks primarily to our business analyst but my experience when I visited them confirmed their commitment and reliability to me.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The overall atmosphere when I visited was very welcoming. I could be sure that the people I met were the ones working on our project. That gave me a good feeling in the sense that I knew what was happening and what I was spending my money on.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We had a very limited budget and, in the beginning, it was hard to agree on the cost estimate with them for the exact scope that we could squeeze into that budget. Since then, they’ve managed well and we’ve stayed on track with the budget. It took us a while to define what was in and what was out in terms of features, but the final cost estimate was precise and we haven’t overspent or underspent.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

One of the most important things for me was spending a week at their office. I like to know the people that I work with. Our level of collaboration was heightened afterward because we talked to each other, we knew each other and we understood each other. I highly recommend making a visit.

Feedback summary: 

The platform worked flawlessly and attracted many visitors and sales. Since KindGeek delivered ahead of schedule, they could fine-tune the product and add advanced features. Their broad knowledge, attention to detail, and commitment to excellent customer service set them apart. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the former project manager of a mattress startup.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with KindGeek?

We were a young startup trying to bring our product to market quickly and efficiently. We needed to develop the online website and a customized product configurator.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our website focused on customized mattresses based on the idea that one size doesn't fit all. Our team created a special questionnaire that asked the right amount of questions to help customers pick the mattress they needed. KindGeek helped us create and customize the web platform's design and user experience, and set up our inventory management using Magento.

Initially, we shared some basic files with them as rough sketches for the platform, and they came up with different design options. This allowed us to test the waters and see whether they fully understood our request. We liked all the options they provided and chose one as the prototype. 

What is the team composition?

Five people worked on the platform, including a project manager, requirements engineer, developers, and designers. Additionally, we were in touch with three managers. 

How did you come to work with KindGeek?

A friend recommended them. We considered many companies before KindGeek. They impressed me because they prepared a professional proposal in an extremely short time.

How much have you invested in them?

We invested around $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from August to December 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The most important thing was launching everything properly and quickly. They did this earlier than we expected, which allowed us to spend the last months polishing the product and adding features. Having everything work was crucial to bringing in online sales. Everything worked better than we expected, and we attracted many new customers. 

We were happy with the depth at which they understood the project, their attention to detail, and their commitment to providing the best possible experience.

How did KindGeek perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management was one of their strong points. I mostly contacted one of their stakeholders and the project manager, and was happy with both interactions. They were flexible about communication tools, letting me choose the most convenient ones. We used Facebook messenger, Skype, and phone calls.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team was helpful and positive. They went beyond the contract and truly wanted us to succeed. It was inspiring to see that they cared about us more than they were obliged to. Everything went smoothly and comfortably. It was extraordinary.

Our experience with KindGeek was mainly good because of their culture. They didn't just provide a paid service; they also helped our product and company grow. We got additional value from their knowledge and experience. It was a win-win situation.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Contact them and discuss the project to form your own opinion. You'll see who they are and how they approach customers.

Feedback summary: 

KindGeek delivered on time, and the site has garnered positive feedback from both the end client and users. The team was professional in interacting with the end client directly and effectively managed change requests. The leadership team went above and beyond to ensure the success of the project.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work for a software development company that primarily works with US-based clients in industries such as education, healthcare, and marketing.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with KindGeek?

We were facing a very tight deadline in completing a complex project for an end client in the education space last summer. We needed a well-built solution that included not only content, but also several more complex features like location-specific search functionality. To meet the deadline, we decided to hire a team that could help us with development while taking a professional approach to interfacing with the client directly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

KindGeek was instrumental in the process of building a frontend solution that met all requirements, while the end client provided us with the backend infrastructure to complete the website. The frontend was primarily based in Angular 4 and related CSS. Key features included integrations with server-side APIs provided by the client that pushed updated content for display on the site, as well as integrations with several other third-party services for features like registration and sign-off. We also needed to provide some functionality around exporting data, and they built the frontend for that integration as well.

What is the team composition?

We worked with a project manager and about four developers throughout the project. We also worked with a project manager assistant when necessary.

How did you come to work with KindGeek?

I was referred to them by one of my clients who had worked with them previously.

How much have you invested with them?

We invested approximately $50,000 on the project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in July 2017, and development was complete in March 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The site was launched successfully within the required timelines. According to the client, the project was well-received by staff and successfully facilitates the enrollment process.

How did KindGeek perform from a project management standpoint?

They were very professional in meetings with the client. They were able to follow up and manage all tasks to not only finish on time, but also to keep the project organized. The team communicated clearly throughout the engagement.

The team did their absolute best to accommodate last-minute changes on the client side while still working within the original timeline. They also communicated in advance about any employee absences or changes to resource allocation. We used Slack, Jira, and Bitbucket to support collaboration and development efforts.

What did you find most impressive about them?

KindGeek is an extremely professional team. They’ve built a well-supported team that balances quality of work with excellent project management. They worked with our client very productively. As opposed to many other firms in the software development industry, KindGeek looks at the bigger picture in their projects. This includes attention to delivery times, quality control, and their overall relationship with the client, rather than simply looking to turn around assignments.

Also, the management team at KindGeek is extremely committed. They were willing to communicate and work with me after hours, and they were dedicated to seeing the project completed successfully. The company is run by people that really care about their work, and we would certainly consider working with them again on future projects.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The only challenges we faced came up on the client side. Things naturally get complicated when there are rapid incoming change requests, but they did all they could to stay on top of those requests. Overall, they have a very strong team.

Any advice for potential customers?

Make sure to communicate in advance the exact time requirements that you need availability from the development team. This project’s success was partially due to setting expectations in the very beginning. Clarify project requirements and get an idea of who you’ll be working with before starting the engagement.

Feedback summary: 

They built out a platform’s defining feature and are responsible for measurably increasing company revenue. KindGeek consists of talented individuals that are committed to delivering high-quality products. Executive level-engagement ensures frequent communication and a collaborative experience.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder and CEO of an IT firm. We’re developing a sales automation platform for real estate developers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with KindGeek?

We needed a software development company to improve the machine learning aspect of our platform. The technology would help us predict what properties would most interest clients.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

KindGeek helped create our AngularJS web application by working on the matching mechanism within our Python-based machine learning engine. Together, we applied a distant supervision approach to analyze data sets of properties and people. We used another component to categorize them simultaneously. This methodology was part of KingGeek’s original proposal. They also set up in-app analytics to measure the value of different components.

This project took 4–5 months to complete. However, they continually support and improve the platform as it evolves. Their team is proactively involved in the development process. If something doesn’t work as expected, they respond to user feedback and make the necessary changes.

What is the team composition?

We worked with a team that included their CEO, a project manager, a team lead, a business analyst, and three developers. They later allocated two developers to work with us on an ongoing basis.

How did you come to work with KindGeek?

They were referred to us by a colleague. He was satisfied with KindGeek’s work and made the introduction. The founders of KindGeek helped us figure out the process and ensured that everything would go smoothly. We assigned each person a role and started development as soon as possible.

How much have you invested with them?

The initial project cost around $140,000–$150,000. They currently charge us an hourly rate as they perform tasks. The total cost is usually between $5,000 and $10,000 per month.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with KindGeek in July 2017. The main project was completed in October 2017, but they’re continuing to develop the platform as we have future releases scheduled.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The machine learning functionally they built out is our platform’s main feature. Our profits have improved significantly since the original engagement with them. I can’t estimate the precise impact of KindGeek’s work, but it’s served as the basis of our product and is responsible for the biggest part of our revenue stream.

How did KindGeek perform from a project management standpoint?

Our assigned project manager stayed in touch with us the whole time. Anton (CEO, KindGeek) and Yurii (Full-stack Developer, KindGeek) followed up with us frequently to ask if everything was okay. Despite being located in Ukraine, they attended our daily scrum meetings and rarely missed deadlines. If they deliver something late, it’s usually because we changed the project at the last minute. We had a shared Jira account and used Bitbucket as a repository. Some of their team leads and project managers were also invited to our Slack channel.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I had some initial concerns about whether this collaboration was the best decision for our company. My team worried that giving the project to an outsourcing company might jeopardize the work they’ve done. We needed a dedicated development team that would be passionate about our project. Luckily, the KindGeek team fit that description. We felt like they were an extension of our team.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We’ve needed to make some changes, but that was our problem. We’re continuing to work with them, so I don’t have any significant suggestions.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

They work well with startup companies. No matter the situation, it’s important for clients to fully understand what needs to be achieved when starting a project.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

KindGeek is thorough and thoughtful. They’re a transparent and fair team that handles challenges well. Though they rushed some parts of the project, the end product was satisfactory. They’ve overall delivered exactly what was promised, and they’re enthusiastic and responsive.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a startup app business. I’m one of the 2 founders. I’m a digital entrepreneur; my background is in digital consulting, project management, and product development. My partner’s an accountant by background and he takes care of the commercial side. Then we have 2 other members of the team: a marketing person and a lawyer.

Our business is similar to TaskRabbit. It’s about finding people to do jobs. Whereas TaskRabbit is very specific about tasks, we’re more like a temporary labor worker. It’s more about finding temporary workers for longer-term projects. It might be a week or 2-week contract, and it’s all typically unskilled work. There’s a lot of seasonal work here: agriculture work, event work, students out looking for holiday work digging ditches. It’s just connecting people who need to get stuff done with people who are available and looking to earn some money doing a job or two.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with KindGeek?

KindGeek is our development partner. We brought them in to manage the software development side. I take care of managing the overall platform relationship with Google, Facebook, and Firebase, etc. Kind Geek is our integrated development partner, so they do all the technical integration and all these different elements. That’s Android development, iOS development, and the backend integration side.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We have an iOS app and an Android app along with the platform that runs those apps. Within that platform, they developed a database. What we’re doing is building a database of people that are available to do work in a geographical location so that you can do a geographical search for people in your area that are available to do work. It’s a 2-minute job to complete a profile, including the location, kind of work they’ve had to do, their age range, a few notes about themselves, and any qualifications they have, and then it’s in our database waiting for clients to pick them out.

If they find a grafter, clients can then offer them work. The grafter says yes, and they go through a simple contract to agree to basic terms about how much they get paid per hour, where the work is, etc. At that point, the user goes off-platform. They do the work successfully and come back to the platform. We run Stripe Connect, which is a marketplace payment system, for the client to pay the grafter using the platform, and they also pay a fee for using the platform. That whole payment system is a quite complicated implementation of Stripe. The grafter gets paid and then at the end of that, there’s a ratings and review system. There’s a whole journey around that. You have a dashboard where you can manage your work or manage your jobs. There are alerts and push notifications that the app manages.

KindGeek was totally responsible for developing the platform. I’m not a technical person and neither is anyone else on our team. I did provide some basic wireframes because I’ve got some experience in doing that. But I think they would have just as happily done it a different way. It was a basic prototyping tool and a description of what I wanted to happen, about 30 pages. We then went through a UX process with the KindGeek UX team, and they implemented more details using these flows and designs. They took my basic concept and turned it into a proper set of user experience designs. They offered marketing services, but we do that ourselves.

How many resources were assigned to your project?

It changes over time, but generally speaking, we had a project manager, a business analyst, an iOS developer, an Android developer, a backend developer, a QA tester, and dev ops. At different times, we’ve had 1-2 of those roles involved in the project at different stages.

How did you come to work with KindGeek?

I ran an RFP process. I selected 5 people based on desk research and sent them a brief specification. I used to run a business like KindGeek in the U.K. which I sold a few years ago, so I’m quite an educated buyer in this process. I found KindGeek on Clutch. I decided that I wanted to put this development into Eastern Europe. The U.K. is very expensive and all the good developers work for Facebook and Google or the banks. The banks pay ridiculous money for developers. It’s very hard to get good developers for a good price in London. I’ve worked with India, South Africa, and other offshore places before and, culturally, it was very, very difficult. So, I was focused on Eastern Europe. I put it out the RFP to 5 different companies and narrowed it down quite quickly to 3 that were interested and the most engaging. Then, of those 3, KindGeek’s proposal was just way better than everyone else’s. They wrote what I would have written when I was doing a proposal for my clients, which was a 20-page PowerPoint of what they thought of our product. They gave ideas of how to make it better. They informed us of their processes and what kind of team they would provide. They told us their pricing model and covered a whole range of things. By comparison, one of the other agencies provided me with a 1-pager that just had a big number for the price with no detail. The third response was somewhere in between. It was an okay proposal, but it was 5 pages and lacking in detail. I was very impressed with KindGeek. They were keen and they responded to the RFP properly, and they made the effort to put together a good response. They thought it through, spent the time to think about what we needed, and came up with a really good proposal.

How much have you invested with KindGeek?

We have spent £50,000 ($70,000) with them so far. Phase 2 will be about £20,000 over the next couple of months.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them January 2017. We’re very happy with their work so we continue to use them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We launched the apps about 3 weeks ago and we have 1,300 users so far. User feedback has generally been good, but we know there are things we compromised on in the first phase, so it’s still a work in progress. It’s not a finished product; it’s very much an MVP. We know there are failings in there that we decided to accept in order to launch quicker. We’ve got another 2 iterations coming over the next month or so, and I think once we get to the end of that, then we’ll be happy with where the product will be. It’s no reflection of KindGeek. It’s a reflection of where we’ve chosen to compromise.

How did KindGeek perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very agile and very lean, and I like that because I’m paying for their time. They don’t try to load the project with additional costs. They do what they need to do to get it done, so that’s the right level of engagement. The thing I like most about them so far is that, in any project like this, it’s inevitable that things go wrong. What it’s about is how you handle it when things go wrong. They’ve been excellent at dealing with things that have gone wrong. That’s what has really impressed me—they’re very open and very honest. They don’t try to hide things when they go wrong and they make sure they compensate us for any errors that their team makes by rectifying that in cost.

What did you find most impressive about KindGeek?

They worked long hours. They’re enthusiastic. They’re very responsive—they respond 24 hours a day. As much as I’m online, they’re online. So far, we’re very happy.

Are there any areas KindGeek could improve?

The biggest problem we had was that the iOS developer, halfway through the project, was in a car crash, so we had to change the iOS developer which is very difficult. But there wasn’t much they could do about that. They really struggled with one element of the finance implementation and I don’t think they read the documentation well enough. I think they were just trying to get it done without actually spending some time to read the documentation. That was minor really. It just took a little bit longer to sort it out by me having to get a bit more involved in pointing out what they needed to do.

Feedback summary: 

KindGeek is complimented for helping improve the final product by providing suggestions based on experience in the industry and technical expertise. KindGeek is strongly recommended.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

YouCapital has developed a business app for investors and companies. youcapital.com shows a video overview of our app's functionality. We're based in London. I am the Chief Executive Officer of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with KindGeek?

We started off with a business plan and basic wireframes developed in-house and took the actual development to KindGeek.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

KindGeek was responsible for all of our development work for the iOS and Android versions of the app. We have worked with a team of 6 people initially and have reduced that number to 4. The owner of KindGeek checks in on us from time to time, which is one of the main reasons I like them. We also have a London-based team working purely on design. KindGeek has also started taking part in the design for our app.

How did you come to work with KindGeek?

I interviewed around 12 companies in the Ukraine when I visited the country. I took my time, made another trip, and had second interviews with some candidates, whittling the decision down to 2 companies, including KindGeek. I chose them because of the major element of trust which came from KindGeek's CEO. He personally came out to the meetings and talked to me directly.

How much have you invested with KindGeek?

The total cost of our project with KindGeek has been around $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with KindGeek in July 2016. Our app was completed just today, and we're planning to launch it in a week's time. There is still some testing to be done, and we plan to use KindGeek on an ongoing basis for backend support.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our manager from KindGeek was a great mind to work with. While working on the app, he was able to point out many of the things that we were doing wrong. There were useless functionalities which killed the user experience. KindGeek talked to us directly and made suggestions on how to improve this. I found this to be fantastic, and it led to much of the rubbish around our app being eliminated. I didn't ask KindGeek to do this, but they simply felt that what we were doing was wrong for the application, and had the guts to tell this to us.

We're a new company, and our relationship with KindGeek needed to be based on trust. From the beginning, we found their team to be very professional and efficient. We were able to email KindGeek at 7 or 8 in the evening on UK time, and received instant responses, even though KindGeek is 2 hours ahead.

How did KindGeek perform from a project management standpoint?

We were only 5-6 days overschedule, which was mostly due to our designers changing the work. Every time we did this, the coders from KindGeek also had to change what they were doing.

I have flown to KindGeek's headquarters in Ukraine and worked with them face-to-face quite a lot. KindGeek's team are time people, with a strict focus on this aspect. I tend to think outside of the box, and I'm more of an entrepreneurial person, so I don't work very efficiently. KindGeek nailed me down and implemented a militarized regiment. Sticking to the schedule was more important for them than it was for me. I was happy with only being 5 days overschedule, but not KindGeek.

We used Slack for communication. I'm not a technically-minded person, so I left the task management for my team in London. KindGeek's project manager was a very practical and efficient person. We tend to have a relaxed attitude in our company, but there was no joking around when it came to getting the job done.

What did you find most impressive about KindGeek?

KindGeek is a very well-organized and efficient team. I have visited their offices; in the staff room, there is a very laid-back atmosphere with pool tables and playful attitudes. Once KindGeek got into the work, they seemed to be heads-down. I was impressed with the number of hours that they worked. KindGeek's team came in early, left late, and were very much focused on getting the job done as quickly as possible. KindGeek's management made an effort to discuss every aspect of our work, keeping everything open and clear.

Are there any areas KindGeek could improve?

If KindGeek moved to London, it would be helpful, but I can't really think of anything.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with KindGeek?

I would advise any client to get on a plane and meet the team personally.

Feedback summary: 

KindGeek’s work has positioned the website to be able to scale quickly, generating 3,000 sign-ups, 250 users with closed data, and positive feedback on its design. The team is hands-on and engaged with a good work ethic. They are forward-thinking and eager to share their knowledge.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a betting platform that allows players to compete in singles matches and singles tournaments for cash and rewards. I am the Chief Executive Officer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with KindGeek?

We needed extra development help for our platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They're dealing with all our web development, frontend, backend, and UI/UX [user interface/user experience] design. They've redesigned the website. We had some beta testing over a month ago now, and there were just a few small things we had to do to close it off. We took all the customer input on board and got them to implement all the feedback we had received. I think the website now is a lot more automated.

We're using AutoPay as our payment system operator, which wouldn't be just a simple lift-and-drop code. There was a lot of work to integrate a system like AutoPay. We also integrated with Twitch streaming service; they have open APIs available as well, and the KindGeek guys were able to pull down from that and embed a streaming video on the website. Before, there were no APIs or integrations. Obviously, we're using PHP coding framework with Laravel, and using the Percona database. All of these are built openly. As we go to scale, we're positioned to scale up quickly.

How did you come to work with KindGeek?

KindGeek had a bit of background in games development. I reached out to 20 or 30 people and got proposals. From a lot of the back and forth I had with KindGeek, it just made sense. I think they were ahead of the pack in terms of cost and estimated delivery dates. I thought it was a good fit.​

How much have you invested with KindGeek?

We have spent between $20,000 and $30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We're still working with them, so we haven't finished our relationship just yet.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Not really. The guys designed the landing page for us to get sign-ups, and we've gotten 3,000 people signed up on that. That's pretty large. People want to use it before we've even released it. We had 250 people on the website with closed data, and we got that feedback. They said the design looked great.

How did KindGeek perform from a project management standpoint?

We have a close relationship with Oleg. We have regular calls to check in to make sure everything's okay. Oleg is the stack developer in the Ukraine. He's a hard worker, always working late when stuff has to get done. He has no problem coming in on the weekend to give us a dig out. There's a very good work ethic among them. Anton and Oleg [principals of KindGeek] have been very hands-on, but they did leave it to the project managers. Oleg is always checking in to make sure the project is all right. He's always prepping for the additional needs we have for outside web development.

What did you find most impressive about KindGeek?

It was the first web development experience that I've had here in Ireland. It was a less hands-on approach. I think KindGeek has up-scaled and educated me in some aspects of the website that we need to understand a bit more, like the ins and outs of how we're going to scale it, and why we're choosing the frameworks we're using. KindGeek has educated me in the journey and the forward-looking aspects of what we need to do with the website. They’ve also constantly stayed in touch with me. If certain things are delayed, they've always been good about getting in touch to relay the reasons why that’s happened.

Are there any areas KindGeek could improve?

The design at the start had something missing, and I think that was probably on our end. We didn't fully know what we wanted. As it progressed and went on, as any project progresses, you always want to change or move things around.

KindGeek is a large, talented team that is capable of providing a wide range of services and quickly replacing personnel. They offer daily communication and regular updates, even on weekends. The team is professional, delivers high quality work on time, and is engaged in problem-solving.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We develop applications and websites. My project with KindGeek involved developing a digital library as an application. The library contains books for children that they can read and listen to.

I am the digital lead.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with KindGeek?

We wanted to build something that has never been built before. We were looking to build an application that presents EPUB [e-book file format extension] files in a very advanced way. Nobody has ever combined audio with an EPUB file in an app before.

We wanted to build an application that's user-friendly -  we wanted children to be able to open the library and choose a book they like. Once they read the book, they can take a quick quiz and get a score. We partnered with KindGeek to get this done.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

KindGeek helped with the concept, design, development, and maintenance of the app. They are working hard with me to get the vision I have to make it possible and to make it a reality. It's a mobile app for Android and iOS. In the future, we'll have all the platforms. Right now, we are just starting with mobile.

How did you come to work with KindGeek?

I found them through Clutch. I contacted all the companies that I found on your website from Eastern Europe because I know they're talented, and they have reasonable costs. Out of 10 companies, I chose them because I felt they were professional. They have a big team that can provide the services that we needed. If someone is absent, they will have somebody to replace right away, and that's important for me.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

It cost between $10,000 and $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

It's an ongoing project. We completed the first phase, and we'll keep working. There are many features to be added. We'll still be working another six months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

The app is about to launch in two to three weeks. KindGeek did a good job. The cost estimate may be is the only thing that I was hoping to match. That's the only thing they didn't match my expectation, but everything else was fine.

How did KindGeek perform from a project management standpoint?

It was very good. KindGeek has a project manager assigned to me to work with on a daily basis. He updated me even on weekends. They're a good company. They have a good team, and the project manager working with me is good.

What distinguishes KindGeek from other providers?

I appreciate that KindGeek cares about their clients' satisfaction. Beyond being professional and delivering work, KindGeek has been very good at communicating with me and problem solving.

Is there anything KindGeek could have improved or done differently?

It would be the cost estimation. It ended up costing more than we had anticipated, but we were able to work it out.

Feedback summary: 

The automated controls designed by KindGeek serve as the foundation for the business model and allow for better growth capacity. The team has a solid basic structure and sources a wide range of individuals with different talents. They are polite, knowledgeable, and pleasant to work with.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Got Produce? is a hydroponic greenhouse design and installation company.

What is your position?

I am the founder and CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with KindGeek?

The value add of our business is in providing automated control systems that operate the greenhouse, both on the ground and remotely. The reason I came in touch with KindGeek was to get them to help us in cloud-based projects, in IoT [Internet of Things], and the control system and [upright] servers, so we could offer that as a value-add to our product range.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

KindGeek provides a range of services for us. They created a cloud database for us, and then they created [environment] sensors and actual control system, which acts like a small computer. They control irrigation and some other things. They set up and did the programming and assembly of the control system. They did design and assembly of wireless sensors. Traditionally, we [moved] from a wired version, or Internet tether version, to a wireless version. They did all the database and UI [user interface] work.

In the beginning, the database was just a MySQL database. I think that the computer serves the system that runs the irrigation controller. 

How did you come to work with KindGeek?

I was looking to outsource this work. Because it involved [design] work, physical assembly of parts, creative thinking, and all these things, it didn't fall under the kind of engineers that we would normally use. I [contacted] different places and two or three different groups when we outsourced this. After talking to Anton [Skrypnyk, CEO at KindGeek], I really felt KindGeek was the right place to go.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

It was probably between $10,000 and $50,000. That's a lot of R&D [research and development] and we plan to continue with them to continue development of the product designs once we have passed the R&D stage.

What is the timeline of this engagement?

We've been working with them almost a year, since August of last year [2015].

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

Our business model is built around these automated controls, so without having automated controls, it knocks the legs out from under our business model. They provided that for us so it allowed us to continue advertising and doing the value add. [What it amounts to is we] would not have the capacity to grow at all. With their help, we have the capacity to be 10 times what we are.

How did KindGeek perform from a project management standpoint?

They have multiple people, all with different talents, which is fantastic. That's one of the reasons I chose KindGeek. I think that they have a good basic structure going through an analysis of what the project needed, to get the talent for the project that you need. I'm really pleased with the way KindGeek was able to source and provide the right people with the right skills that we needed.

What distinguishes KindGeek from other providers?

I've enjoyed working with them and I can't quantify that. If you're going to have a partner that you're working with long term, I think it helps to have personalities aligned and visions aligned. They're polite and they're knowledgeable – just a good group of people and nice to work with.

Is there anything KindGeek could have improved or done differently?

The only thing I would say is in hindsight, having better access to the online project management, like a tracking tool. They did provide some [analysis] and, whenever I asked for breakdowns, they did provide it. It would be nice just to have continuous online access to tracking.

Feedback summary: 

KindGeek’s work has facilitated a high-level sales negotiation with the client’s largest customer to date. They adapted well to existing systems, are engaged in process improvement, and employ efficient, structured project management. They provide personal attention and serve as true team members.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our company is Datasembly. We work with CPGs [consumer packaged goods], specifically food manufacturers to help them understand how their products are performing on the shelf, what they’re being priced, when they’re being put on promotion, for how much they’re being put on promotion, and especially in comparison to what their competitors are doing in terms of pricing and promotion strategy.

I am the Chief Technology Officer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with KindGeek?

With KindGeek, we really just needed developers to help us build out our data collection platform, and that was the original impetus for bringing them on. We work with a lot of pricing data from across the country, so bringing them on was to help us collect all this data and manage it. Now they’re our full-time general purpose developers. They work on all sorts of things that we need them to do, some data-related, some user interface-related, some still data collection-related.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our platform collects hundreds of millions of pricing records from the web every day. What they’ve worked on specifically is helping to improve that data collection platform. They’ve helped write our back-end, which is a pipeline for collecting and processing this data. KindGeek wrote two very important parts of our pipeline, which is product matching. That is, if we get a product from one store that doesn’t have a UPC [Universal Product Code], how do we match it to the same product from another store that doesn’t have a UPC? This involved natural language processing, it involves text analysis, and it involves a large scale search problem. He actually worked on developing that core component of our technology.

Then, he also worked on helping develop another core component, which is brand extraction. Given a string of text that’s about a product, how do we tell who manufactured this product? What is the brand that this product is being sold as? Is it Cheerios? Is it a Hershey’s Kiss? How do we attribute this back to the manufacturer and their product line?

We work almost entirely in Scala. We used Akka for a lot our distributed systems and concurrency work. We use RedShift, the Amazon Web Services database, for a lot of the data storage and aggregations, and we also use RethinkDB for our real-time data collection.

How did you come to work with KindGeek?

We started at the 500 Startups Accelerator Program, which is out in California. We started there last July, and when they published the list of all the companies that are working at the Accelerator, we just got inundated with requests from different development shops that wanted to work with us. I spent a week just interviewing different shops, talking to people there, and we ended up hiring three different agenciens with the idea that we would choose the best one. One in the US, one in Ukraine, which is KindGeek, and one in Poland. After working with all of them for about a month or two, we decided that we liked KindGeek best.

How much have you invested with KindGeek?

It’s about $10,000 a month. We actually scaled up our work. We started out at about $6,000 a month, and now we’re up to about $10,000 a month.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working with them for 10 months now.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any results of this project?

There’s nothing really I can publically talk about yet, but I will say that we’ve been in a sales process with General Mills for about six months now, and a lot of KindGeek's work has made that sales process possible. Now we’re actually negotiating final terms of a deal with them. They would be our largest customer to date, and we couldn’t have done it without KindGeek.

How did KindGeek perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been great. KindGeek came to work with us full-time immediately, so they adapted to the systems that we were using. Actually, my favorite thing about KindGeek is that they’re not afraid to give feedback and discuss ways of improving processes. When we started with them, we didn’t really have much in the way of project management; we were just flying by the seat of our pants. Now we’re using Blossom, which was chosen by KindGeek to manage our tasks. It’s been a real pleasure working with them in terms of project management.

What did you find most impressive about KindGeek?

They’re great to work with. One thing I really appreciate is their personalities. The Chief Executive Officer of KindGeek was in the US, and he made it a real point to meet up with us. We had coffee and a great conversation with him. He was here in the United States to get more clients; he didn’t necessarily have to meet up with us. We really appreciated that. I had a great time talking with him. Both the developers we work with now are very communicative. They’re fun people to work with. They’re not just taking orders and doing things. It’s all discussion; we talk about personal stuff. It’s really like they’re part of the team.

Are there any areas KindGeek could improve?

The language barrier has been difficult at times, and it would’ve been nice if KindGeek, which largely works with US companies, had better processes in place to make communication easier.
