Feedback summary: 

While the work is ongoing, the engagement with Light IT has met expectations. Their team is understanding and flexible, changing their strategy as necessary to meet a client's needs.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We design, develop and publish digital applications. I am co-owner.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Light IT?

We hired Light IT for the design and actual development of some of our mobile apps.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was (is) to turn rough ideas into a format that will take the entire development a big step further. The UX designs will help convince investors, will serve as a basis for development estimates, and will guide us through essential decision making.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

After a first rough selection, we have contacted some potential partners. Light IT seemed to fulfill our needs without overlapping our own skills

What was the team composition?

Mostly a designer and a project manager

Not yet.

We doubted whether the distance and difference in cultures could be problematic. It's true that there were some misunderstandings and different perceptions of the project's goals and characteristics. But in general Light IT proved to be flexible and very professional. They were able to understand our feedback and adapt their work.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Sure, there always are, but so far nothing worth mentioning.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Still in early phases, their work has received positive feedback from key stakeholders. Light-it keeps the project moving through constant communication, providing critical status updates throughout the engagement. Efficiency and meticulousness are hallmarks of their work.

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 a machine learning technology startup.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Light-it?

We needed help developing a web-based platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Light-it developed our web platform using Python, React.js, and then standard web technologies such as CSS and Tesseract. They will provide ongoing support moving forward.

What is the team composition? 

We work with four members of their team. 

How did you come to work with Light-it? 

We selected Light-it because of their prior experience in the space. They're also really good at communicating, which is so important with offshore development.

How much have you invested with them? 

We’ve spent $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement? 

Work began in February 2019 and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We haven't put the product fully into production yet, but Light-it is very efficient in their efforts. They’re capable of understanding complex business scenarios and incorporating the solution into their work. 

How did Light-it perform from a project management standpoint?

Light-it really excels at project management. We do daily calls and they're extremely transparent. I get a breakdown of all their hours by step, by developer, and by day. I know what's happening with every item, as well as what the cost is going to be. They're good project managers and they're technically strong, which is why they're so easy to deal with. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re fairly inexpensive but they have a sizable resource pool. If I need assistance with Angular or Python or frontend design, they’ll have someone we can use within a few days. I've worked with probably a dozen offshore vendors in the past, and Light-it is the best. 

Are there any areas they could improve? 

Everyone can improve but I can't think of anything specific.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder and CEO of a tech-heavy effortless menswear marketplace.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Light IT?

We hired them to take over the broken backend development code on my site and rebuild it using Django and Python.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to have a fully functioning backend code linked to my frontend code so that we could launch the website.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I did a very thorough analysis of several vendors, and Light IT won on many factors. Denis (Business Development Manager, Light IT) was my sales point of contact. He was very cooperative and honest, which set the whole partnership on a good foundation.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Denis helped find a good backend developer for my project. The developer knows Python and Django very well. He was able to take a broken code (code that another developer had left), understand it, refactor it, and put it in great shape. 

What was the team composition?

There was one backend developer. Over time, the developer took on all of my web development needs, including frontend development.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

This project has allowed me to launch an amazing website. I’ve been able to continue raising money and grow my business. Now, the backend code is very advanced, clean, and scalable. I didn't believe that they would be able to clean up the mess I had when I first approached them, but they did so very successfully. 

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Their workflow was very smooth. We used Trello, Slack, and Bitbucket

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Transparency and communication are key for outsourcing—they master those! The developer who was assigned was very skilled, communicative, cooperative, and best of all, honest. Everything was performed with integrity and respect for deadlines. They were also excellent at planning. In the end, I became very good friends with both Denis and the superstar backend developer assigned to my project. I will definitely look to continue using their services. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

Light IT could keep growing their team to have more developers available for companies that are expanding.
