Client's feedback | Ramzi Assaf (CEO of Portefini) about Light IT Global

From MVP to the Healthcare Ecosystem

Shortly after we created an MVP of this product, our client requested to build its full version. The core functionality was a highly precise calculator that allows doctors to calculate doses of hormones based on individual parameters. Step by step, this calculator grew into a healthcare ecosystem where doctors from different countries can see patients, prescribe

treatment, store patient histories and all data on each injection, consult with other doctors, choose vendors on the built-in marketplace, etc.

100% Precision
Each calculation is based on individual patient parameters and ensures maximum treatment safety.

Unlimited Possibilities
Clinics, doctors, patients and vendors have everything they need in one place.

HIPAA Compliance
Specialists and technologies engaged in the project are certified and meet HIPAA regulations.

Technologies used:
Angular
PHP

Sights Walker

The task was to create a mobile app that helps travelers find ways to the desired sights around the world, add places of interest to the map and provide information about them in descriptions, audio, video, and photo formats. Thus, users can share their traveling experiences with others. The key features are a “tour” and a set of points or “pins” on a map that form a route. We built this app from scratch, so the key to

successful implementation was to go deeply into the idea of our client.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CEO at a tech startup in Chicago. Our company uses Lean and Agile methodologies for product development. We deeply integrate marketing and customer feedback into the product development process.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

Initially, our company had a MVP. At the time, we had a small inhouse developer. So, after demonstrating the proof of concept, we decided to hire LightIT to build iOS and Android mobile apps that are scalable to a large number of users.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to release the beta version of our mobile app. Specifically, the product must be usable and user-friendly for our customers. Furthermore, the product must be maintainable and updatable for the future development.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Our company searched online on outsourcing websites for companies in Eastern European countries. We reached out and interviewed different outsourcing candidates. We picked the one who values in partnership building. Our company believe that long-term success depends on mutual understandings and ability to cooperate and adapt in the rapidly changing world.

Describe the project in detail.

Our company shared business requirements and legacy source code to LightIT. After LightIT investigates, we defined different milestones and versions of products. This helped us make incremental improvement over time in the Lean and Agile methodologies. The product went through many iteration of planning, development, testing and learning.

What was the team composition?

In the beginning, we only had backend and frontend developers. Later, we added QA and product manager. Most recently we had 1 backend dev, 2 iOS developers, 1 Android, 1 QA and 1 PM.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We valued user feedback. So we continuously tested the alpha version of the product with our target users. We received positive feedback on product usability and user-friendliness. Please note that at the time of giving this review, this product was not fully released to the public yet.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

In the beginning, the communications was challenging due to the remote working environments between our company and LightIT. When project manager was assigned to the team, it initially slowed our product development. However, in the long-run PM helped clarify understanding between teams. We scheduled two meetings per week to talk over the phone. We communicated frequently on Slack. We also had tools to document business requirements, plan and estimate, and track progress and bugs, etc.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

LightIT has nice employees with humility. This is a foundation for building trust, which allows us to continuously improve together and adapt to changing environments. From the beginning, I had seen significant improvements on communications, problem solving skills and decision making process.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Building a high quality product within budget is always challenging. The team has demonstrated its ability to build a high quality product. However, we have a lot of rooms for improvement to control schedule and budget. We discussed many initiatives for Built-In Quality, and eventually testing would be everyone's job at every stage of the development.

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

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.
