Seat Covers Unlimited

Web Development

Seat Covers Unlimited manufactures the largest selection of custom seat covers for all makes and models of vehicles nationwide.


Seat Covers Unlimited needed a new e-commerce site. The old site was slow, unresponsive, and the integrated ERP was inaccurate, making fullfilling orders difficult.


Loop Studio was hired to help upgrade the site by developing a ExtJS powered ERP, a new Ruby on

Rails API, and a new B2C e-commerce site.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Athlete eligibility has improved markedly since the engagement began, providing proof of concept. Loop Studio’s ability to adapt to and communicate about ever-evolving specifications helps make their code relatively bug-free. Responsiveness and problem-solving ability make them a valuable partner.

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 CEO of Pierce Plan, which is a software that tracks the academic eligibility of student-athletes to make sure they're eligible for a college scholarship.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Loop Studio? 

My original developer left to take another job. I needed a vendor to quickly bridge the gap and provide technical support.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

Loop Studio finished the second version of my software, which is built on Ruby on Rails. They’ve been providing support and enhancements ever since. 

What is the team composition? 

I've been in contact with four people including a business operations lead. I’ve had two specific developers assigned to my project. There’s also a senior developer above them that checks all of their work before it’s pushed to production.  

How did you come to work with Loop Studio? 

I believe they were connected to me by a mentor who’s in the technology world. I interviewed them and spoke to at least one other company that they worked with. In general, Uruguay has a reputation for becoming one of the leading technology countries. 

How much have you invested with them? 

I’ve spent $30,000–$35,000. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together around June 2018, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Loop Studio has provided proof of concept for my company. At one particular school, the initial baseline was that 47% of students were ineligible when they uploaded the software. That’s been reduced to 25% in one semester. This shows that the software works. It provides real-time information and stakeholders are using it to take action. 

How did Loop Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

If you're going to outsource outside of the U.S., the biggest barriers to communication tend to be the time zone and language. We're not in the same time zone, but they're usually only an hour or two off. They speak English, which makes it very easy to communicate.

We primarily use Slack, GitHub, and Google Chat. They're always available. I've never felt that I could not access them. They've so flexible and accommodating, especially as my needs have fluctuated in terms of hours required. I'm sure they've shifted their developers to other projects, but they always make time when I need tasks done.

What did you find most impressive about them? 

Loop Studio are problem solvers. They’ve found a couple of solutions on how to code the software more efficiently. I’m on a budget, and they've been accurate in estimating how long it will take to develop various features. Typically, they complete the task in fewer hours than they predicted. I appreciate the communication and the way that they work to fulfill the needs of my company.

Are there any areas they could improve? 

No, I don't think so. Everything has been pretty smooth.

Feedback summary: 

The in-house team is impressed with their ability to work fast and produce excellent results. Loop Studio goes above and beyond to meet all needs, while their positive company culture and affordable rates contributed to the long-term relationship.

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 CEO at Memberspace.com. We provide membership logins and paywall functionality for Squarespace websites.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Loop Studio?

We needed a vendor to help us speed up development for our Ruby on Rails application.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They are helping develop a Ruby on Rails app for us, mostly focusing on the backend. They are also using jQuery and React on our project along with some SQL database management.

What is the team composition?

We started working with one member of their team, and then they added three more people.

How did you come to work with Loop Studio?

We found them on We Work Remotely. We interviewed many vendors, and Loop Studio seemed to have the most friendly and knowledgeable team. Also, they were just the right size for us and had affordable rates.

How much have you invested with them?

We've invested over $100,000 with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in December 2016, and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They build features very quickly and are less expensive than US teams. That allows us to have three times as many developers for the same price, so the project moves faster. Plus, they communicate very well.

How did Loop Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

We used GitHub and Basecamp for project management. They speak very good English, and we didn't have any issues with the time difference.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They're very friendly and motivated. We recently visited them in Uruguay and really liked their company culture. They're the kind of people we'd like to work with for the long term.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I can't think of anything.
