Feedback summary: 

Project specifications were consistently met in a timely fashion. They’re candid about expectations and communicative. Collaborating with them is easy, and results in high-quality 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 owner and founder of an organization called Wholesum, an online platform that assists in streamlining meal planning for companies, outfitters, and outdoor excursion organizers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with LinkUp?

We needed help developing our mobile app and online platform. Development requirements included website design assistance, graphic design support, and database coding.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They supported us during initial app and web development and design. They researched and recommended the optimal server to launch our platform, and coded the web app using Ruby on Rails. With my guidance on algorithms and user interface design, they built us an iOS and Android app. They helped us with the app approval process by meeting the relevant criteria necessary for posting apps in the Apple App Store and Google Play.

What is the team composition?

I communicated with about five of their team members, including a project manager for initial planning; a team leader and developer for user interface and graphic design aspects; another developer for mobile apps; and yet another developer for the final phases of the project.

How did you come to work with LinkUp?

After local development teams proved to be too expensive, I posted our project on Upwork, and they responded with an estimate. I interviewed five companies to determine which would be the best match for us.  Out of those, I really appreciated LinkUp, not just for their skill set, but for their enthusiasm for the project. They clearly understood the scope of what we needed, and they came ready with new ideas for how we might change or adjust our specifications.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $6,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in March 2016, and we’re still collaborating.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have around 20-30 companies actively using our platform, and more than 200 others are testing it, or expressing interest in it. To what extent this can be attributed to LinkUp’s work is hard to determine at the moment. Overall, I’ve been so happy with their work that I’ve given them more tasks than detailed in the initial scope of the project.

How did LinkUp perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been responsive, transparent, and communicative.  Whenever I've requested a timeline for deliverables, they've provided me with accurate estimates. Their turnaround for work varies depending on complexity, but they’re always upfront about expectations. They’ve done everything they can to meet our specifications.

It’s been easy and effective working with them, and I’ve been pleased with them throughout our collaboration. We communicate via phone, email, and Skype. We also use Acello to communicate for bigger, multi-step deliverables.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They do everything exceptionally well. When I decided to hire a development team, I was anticipating having to spell out specifications for our project’s vision, but they presented me with ideas and products that surpassed what I could have done. Every phase of our collaboration has gone smoothly, and they’ve absolutely exceeded expectations almost every step.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Due to the complexity of the backend work, we’ve inevitably uncovered bugs and glitches. I’ve learned to conduct thorough testing for every deliverable in order to better understand what users may experience in different situations and check for bugs. However, they’re always quick to fix issues free-of-charge.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Take the time to thoroughly lay out the specifications you want, and then trust in their work. Make sure to leave time for product testing and revision, but other than that, if you give them the space to work they’re capable of delivering a high-quality product.

Feedback summary: 

The new platform is an important tool in the company's transition away from being purely a service provider to delivering an actual product. LinkUp’s phenomenal price point, responsiveness, and integrity 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.

My name is Chris Miller and I'm the founder and CEO of a boutique consulting company. We help communities—in Latin America, North America, and Europe—attract jobs and companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with LinkUp Studio?

I had an idea for something called “economic development in a box,” which is a single tool delivered as a service to clients around the globe to solve common community problems.

We were looking for a vendor that could provide a comprehensive web platform. It needed to support 15 modules that perform different functions, as well as connect the community to the resources they need to be successful.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They started by identifying the problem that we're trying to solve and then worked backwards to identify the best technology to use. They selected Ruby on Rails as a cross-browser platform, along with a PostgreSQL database on a Nginx web server.

There was extensive back and forth during testing, including finding and fixing bugs. Most of the changes that made were due to me changing my mind, but they also made recommendations if they felt something made more sense to be done a different way.

They finished Phase 1 of the project, and now the ball is in my court to sign up the first customers. After six months of collecting feedback, they'll begin Phase 2 development.

In addition to the technology, they offered really useful suggestions about how this product could be integrated into my company. They were very interested in figuring out how best to deliver the technology that would solve the business challenge.

What is the team composition?

My primary contact was Andriy [Sambir, CEO, LinkUp Studio]. I also worked with a lead developer and two junior developers.

How did you come to work with LinkUp Studio?

I was introduced to Andriy though entrepreneurs I worked with on a project in Ukraine. He struck me as very personable, enthusiastic, and direct. His team is made up of really smart people, and they were eager to do something big.

I asked him if he would be willing to take a look at the project. He talked it over with his team and said they would love to work on it.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between $19,000-$22,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Work started around June 2015 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

There are no data or metrics yet, but this is a really important project for my company because it transitions us to delivering an actual product rather than just providing a consulting service. It was absolutely critical that it be successful, and so far I am very happy.

How did LinkUp Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

It was a very fluid, dynamic, and agile process. I had a weekly call with Andriy, which other developers would join depending on the phase of the project. They were in constant contact via Google Hangouts as they refined some of the features. Once a week we'd also have an all-team meeting for a progress report and any challenges.

They adopted my project management and ticketing system for this project, and I really appreciate that flexibility.

What did you find most impressive about them?

From a business perspective, I was impressed by their diligence, enthusiasm, and—most importantly—integrity. Every step of the way, Andriy and his team demonstrated integrity. I trusted them implicitly, and I was I was well rewarded for that trust.

From a technology perspective, I was impressed by their intelligence and flexibility. Typically developers are only interested in talking about code and tools. LinkUp is willing and able to understand your business at a deeper level.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Go into great detail on the problem, and then let them propose some ideas. Listen to what the developers tell you because they can add value beyond just the code.
