Feedback summary: 

MageSpider was responsive and performed well until they hit the second milestone. After that, they cut off all communication and never followed up, which made the client lose out on a $2,500 investment. The half-completed engagement delayed the final product’s completion by a year.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a translation agency that planned to build a linguists' platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Magespider Infoweb Pvt. Ltd.?

We hired the team to help us create Veev app, a global directory of linguists based on a digital platform.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to create a roster of all linguists across the globe under one platform.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found MageSpider InfoWeb via AppFutura. They seemed like a legitimate company and responded to us very well. There were no red flags when we first got in touch.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

Our engagement focused on developing an Android app.

What was the team composition?

I only worked with one person from their team directly.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I felt very frustrated by the results. Our project ended up being delayed by a year and we lost our $2,500 investment.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Initially, everything was fine. We received weekly updates until we made the second milestone. After that, we never heard back from them again.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I have nothing to say.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

I'd encourage them to be more honest with their clients.

Feedback summary: 

After an overpriced prior vendor refused to transfer knowledge, Magespider Infoweb rectified the entire mobile app endeavor. The team worked on their own time to brainstorm innovative add-ons. Thanks to their transparent and honest methodology, the client has full control over the deliverables. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of an app company that offers digital scoring for different types of events.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Magespider Infoweb?

I needed to find a new app development company after our former team developed us into a corner. They'd built our original iOS app to be impossible to update or improve internally, which tethered us to their company. When they drastically increased their rates, we were forced out. 

Our only option was to redevelop the entire app using Swift with newer technology. We’d run into customer roadblocks from being iOS only, so we requested a duplicate Android version as well.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Magespider Infoweb redeveloped our entire app using best-practice techniques and the latest technologies. At the start of the project, I provided documentation and wireframes to illustrate our concept. The frontend looks relatively simplistic, but the intricate backend involves a lot of moving parts. 

When we were pleased with the iOS version’s design and UX/UI, the team programmed the same features for Android using Java. They even suggested brand new features to include. They also created an iPad version of our app since they knew it was critical to launch on that platform.

Critically, we had a knowledge transfer to ensure our negative experience with the other vendor didn’t happen again. We conducted a code review to ensure it was using Swift.  They carefully explained how I could work with the technology independently going forward.
 

What is the team composition? 

We typically work with 4-5 people at any one time. Our team from Magespider includes the main project lead, an iOS developer, an Android developer, and a control panel developer.

How did you come to work with Magespider Infoweb?

I found Magespider Infoweb during an internet search. I spoke with the team lead, Viral (Sr. Business Development Executive, Magespider Infoweb). Based on our conversations, they were enthusiastic about taking on our project and redeveloping the entire app. The rate and quality they guaranteed are what sold us on hiring them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent under $10,000 on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our partnership with Magespider Infoweb began in 2017. We’ve been in production on both platforms since February 2018. At this point, we’re still working on new features we’d like to add. I just sent over a full wish list for them send back a quote for.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve used the mobile apps Magespider delivered several times with our customers. Many users noted the increased speed and praised the new functionality. Their rapid response empowered them to our deadline despite initial obstacles with the launch. Without hesitation, the team worked late into the evenings to complete all the fixes and resolve critical problems.

Magespider Infoweb is quick to offer support and always has advice for add-ons to improve our app. I was impressed with how well they handled development and production for our iPad app. Even though it was time-consuming task outside out original scope, they built it for a minimal cost.

How did Magespider Infoweb perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated daily on Trello and used that tool to organize the entire project. Despite a language barrier, the team was responsive to outreach and often took my instructions in stride. It was always evident during development if they’d understood me clearly. Their project manager resolved this communication challenge and led all the conversations since he spoke the most fluent English. Weekly Skype sessions help ensure we’re on the same page.

What did you find most impressive about them?

MageSpider Infoweb was willing to go above and beyond to satisfy all the requirements.  At certain times I wasn’t sure they understood the task at hand, but they kept trying until they got it right. I appreciated that they rearranged their schedule to mitigate the time zone difference. At times, they woke up at 4:00 A.M. just to speak with me. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

They should fully understand the requirements before jumping into development. They were so eager to develop and show me something. Sometimes I wish they'd fully understood what I was saying so I wouldn't have to request changes, but that isn't a big problem. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Giving the most detailed requirements possible will increase productivity. If I take the time to spell things out exactly really, there’s not as much back and forth

Feedback summary: 

Magespider provided innovative solutions to overcome unavoidable technological hurdles that occurred with both the infrastructure and servers.  Despite these development challenges, Magespider remained on schedule, provided regular high–level progress reports, and delivered a smooth website launch.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-owner of Haggleparts, a website that helps users find and book an appointment with nearby mechanics. Users input information about their car and the issue they’re experiencing. Then we find a nearby mechanic who works with either that car or issue, send them an appointment request, and after they accept, send the users a quote. We also provide price comparison on automotive parts, specifically brands approved by the American Automotive Aftermarket.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Magespider Infoweb?

We had them build our website from scratch.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Developing the website required a lot of database design, server–to–server authentication and communication, API integration, and SEO. Magespider also developed and designed the WordPress forms that we send to mechanics and users for vehicle information, appointment requests, and quotes.

What is the team composition?

I mostly interacted with project managers and technical leads, but I know there were 3–4 developers doing the frontend work. I would guess that there were a total of 5–10 people dedicated to the project.

How did you come to work with Magespider Infoweb?

My partner and I found Magespider during our online research. I met with one of their representatives directly, and within a short amount of time they had a detailed plan, timeline, and identified anything that seemed unrealistic.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them late 2016 and launched the website July 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Building a website from scratch is not easy, and they met our unique requirements; we’re very happy with the final product. They had to overcome development challenges because of the infrastructure and server limitations, but the launch went smoothly. Now we’re just doing batch and version updates that come with every development project.

How did Magespider Infoweb perform from a project management standpoint?

There were some unforeseen and unavoidable technical issues, but they worked around those. They did extra research and suggested solutions that would keep us on schedule. They provided us with regular updates on the timeline, what they were working on, and any issues or questions that arose.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their overall technical understanding was extremely impressive. They were able to take our feedback and redesign anything that was required. Their optimizations saved us a lot of money in terms of infrastructure.

Are there any areas they could improve?

More frequent detail touchpoints and status updates.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

A great team, I enjoyed working with them. They developed up-front technical analysis to better understand the details and scope of the project.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Although the project involved complex integrations and tight deadlines, Magespider diligently delivered every requirement. The agency continually impressed with their technical capability, affordable pricing, and thorough documentation. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of an app holding company. It’s a one-stop-shop, bringing all a user’s apps and services onto one platform so they don’t need to download multiple apps.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Magespider?

My challenges were finding resources and reducing costs. I funded the project completely by myself, and was looking for contractors who could help me build the app based on my budget. I needed to outsource the whole project.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I reached out to apps that were already on the market, agreed to their terms and conditions, and got access to their APIs. Once I received access, I also helped design the app. I gave Magespider the screenshots and mockups, after which they built the app and wrote the functional code. They started integrating my app with the APIs I provided.

The app is being built for Android. We built a beta version, but it’s not on the market yet. Right now, they’re adding more content and apps. I’m hoping to launch the second version of the app the first week in March.

What is the team composition?

I’m not aware of all their resources. I’m mostly in contact with a UI developer, an Android developer, and a project manager, who manages my expectations.

How did you come to work with Magespider?

I was shopping for contractors and they seemed to be the most cost-effective option. I considered 3-4 companies.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in February 2017 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app is partially functional at this point.

How did Magespider perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re doing a fine job on a complex project. We rely on third-party apps to give their APIs. Even if they do give their APIs, things aren’t smooth because the APIs could have issues. We have an estimated timetable rather than hard deadlines. They’ve done decently so far. I use Excel on my end to keep track of the data, and we communicate through email, Skype, or phone.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They meet our complex expectations for this project. This isn’t your usual app. It has a lot of complexities. Each of the apps has their own API, which usually aren’t straightforward. I commend them for showing their due diligence. They’ve been good contractors, and have met my demands and needs.

Are there any areas they could improve?

With experience, they could turn things around or write code faster. I don’t want to point fingers at them because it depends on the complexities of these APIs. I’m satisfied with the work they’ve done so far, and have no issues with them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If you have complex requirements, they’ll make sure to work around them and get it done for you.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

BridgeEat is a social dining app that connects students around a meal to increase their networking experience. I am the co-founder. I handle the product part of the business.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Magespider Infoweb?

We wanted to develop an iOS mobile application for our company. We had no iOS developer on our team and we were looking to outsource the development.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

They have a number of services they provide but we wanted to start off with iOS development. We provided the API and they developed the front-end of the app for us. Some features include posting meal opportunities, joining a meal, and payment transactions. There were six people working on the app in total, three from our team and three frontend iOS developers from Magespider’s team.

We started a contract for only iOS app development, but in a month or so we would like to start another contract to develop the Android version of the app. 

How did you come to work with Magespider Infoweb?

We were Googling around to find a company to outsource to. We thought we should go for Asian companies because they are cheap and we haven’t been funded yet. We thought we’d go to India because we had some contacts there before. When I was reading reviews of development companies, we saw some recommendations by past clients. We talked over Skype and I thought they could help us a lot. The relationship is really good. We are thinking to continue with them for the next MVP.

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

$3000 to $3500.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began in July 2016. We launched the app at the end of October.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

Users of the app have given really positive feedback. They say it's clear and the quality is really good. It's the price as well. We thought the app would cost more and Magespider actually took a lot of time to make sure the quality is as good as it is. We've gotten really good feedback from our customers.

How did Magespider Infoweb perform from a project management standpoint?

The project management is really good. We communicated using Slack. If we have any questions, they answer right away. Their response time is quick and they’re really engaging. They’ll usually tell us if they’re on leave about one week before so that we are prepared.

What distinguishes Magespider Infoweb from other providers?

They're good and you can trust them. Their project management stands out. The engagement with the client - that’s something I was impressed with. When we told them we’re going to use another payment provider than they were used to, they were willing to learn it in a really short time. They’re willing to learn and try things out for the client.

Is there anything Magespider Infoweb could have improved or done differently?

No. It went really smoothly. Actually, the delays were from our side. They waited for us to give them the API solutions.

Online orders have increased by as much as 25 percent since the client began working with Magespider Infoweb. They are pleased with their timeliness and ease of accessibility.

BACKGROUND

Please introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a family-owned cooking company, and we do delivery. We cater to people who work in nearby offices or live nearby and want their food delivered to their homes. I am the owner of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Magespider Infoweb?

Since we are a family-owned business and not a franchise, it's a little hard to get our name exposed to the market. Nowadays, people are using their smartphones to order restaurant food. We decided to do some SEO [search engine optimization] enhancement of our website, and then develop an app so our customers can order on their phones with just a single click.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Magespider built the app and did the SEO work for us. Now that we have enhanced our SEO with Magespider and have an app, we have definitely pulled in a fair amount of business. The app is in both iOS and Android and uses the services of Magento. It's not heavily dependent on Magento, but Magespider takes care of Magento for a few hours a week by writing some of the content, updating the pricing and so forth. In fact, Magespider is working on Magento right now.

How did you come to work with Magespider Infoweb?

I was looking online for a particular kind of development company. I compiled a list by doing searches on Google, Bing, and Apple. Because I was mainly focusing on SEO at that time, I wanted to find a company that had a nice appearance and strong links to all the search engines. I narrowed my search down to four companies, of which Magespider was one.

How much have you invested with Magespider Infoweb?

Altogether the investment will be somewhere between $18,000 and $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

I've been working with them since about June 2015, and I'm still working with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Magespider has bumped up my online catering orders by at least 20 to 25 percent. That's definitely been great. I don't expect the users of my app to give me ratings or reviews. My user base is targeted to the surrounding area and, to be quite honest, if they like the food, they will come back. I'm not expecting a huge number of reviews. Yes – there are companies that get Yelp reviews. I tried them, but it didn't work out all that well. If people like my app and my website – and my food – they come back.

How did Magespider Infoweb perform from a project management standpoint?

At first, they didn't assign a dedicated project manager because initially my budget was small. Once we agreed upon pricing and the objective of getting some new business, they assigned a dedicated project manager with whom I talk at least every other day.

What did you find most impressive about Magespider Infoweb?

Because they have a presence in the United States as well as in their development center in India, I don't have to be in front of the computer late at night or in the early morning just to talk with them. That has been a great help.

Are there any areas Magespider Infoweb could improve?

No. I think they are good. Once the frequency of contact is set up, they are good to work with.

Please describe your organization.

My business provides design and development solutions to other businesses.

What is your position?

I'm the owner of the business.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Magespider Infoweb?

I have been using Magespider as my development partner for a wide range of projects. They have helped me build sites for a local skincare company, an attorney who needed a lead-generating site, and a customized coffee subscription service to name a few. Each project has a unique set of requirements and challenges.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

When a project comes in, I will handle the planning aspects and the architecture of the site, and Magespider will oversee the execution. They review the architecture and wireframes and then make suggestions if they find issues. Then, they work through the design and hand them off to me to review with my client. Once everything is approved on my end, they move forward with the coding and the development. At that point, they release it to me, and we review the product to address any issues before it goes to the customer. Finally, Magespider handles the migration of the product to the client's server.

How did you come to work with Magespider Infoweb?

I found them on Elance, which is now Upwork.

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

Our relationship is ongoing. They are not on retainer because they don't require any sort of advanced payment for their services. I get in touch with them as projects arise. I appreciate what they do and the value that they add to my business, and I think they feel the same. They're incredibly easy to work with and they allow me direct communication with their developers. We've built a lot of trust at this point, so our relationship is much more fluid than your traditional partnership.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

Many of the projects I get are companies that have worked with providers that did not give them what they were expecting. They have very slow websites with poor architecture and confusing layouts. Two projects that I can think of off the top of my head are a flooring company and meal delivery service that both saw hundreds of percent increase in their conversion rate and large declines in their bounce rates. We have definitely seen some positive results, and many of the clients I work with have been with me for many years, which speaks very well to the business.

How did Magespider Infoweb perform from a project management standpoint?

Magespider is always honest about timelines. They are quick to identify any hurdles that pop up rather than waiting until the last minute like many other companies often do. Their communication is good, and they work on U.S. time, so they are available for discussion throughout the day.

What distinguishes Magespider Infoweb from other providers?

Their communication is a huge plus. Many other international companies are rarely available, and when they are there's often a language barrier that can cause some major problems. Their project managers do a great job understanding my requirements and conveying those accurately to their technical teams. Every project that I've worked on with Magespider has been a success. We've had no issues.

Is there anything Magespider could have improved or done differently?

No, not really. The only thing I can think of is that I would like them to work more for me.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Industry peers have responded positively to the app, which was displayed at several prominent conferences. Magespider's professionalism and grasp of advanced technical skills made them a capable partner. The team responded promptly and productively to feedback.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

The name of my business is HazMat Consulting. I teach chemistry and OSHA [Occupational Safety and Health Administration] compliance classes in the United States, and I teach internationally for the State Department of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Operations Antiterrorism Response.

What is your position?

I am the founder and CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Magespider Infoweb?

I wanted to put together an app that people could use to more easily understand the government response in relation to hazmat situations. I also wanted to incorporate both educational and entertainment features, which included a set of chemistry questions and hazmat response questions. I wanted people who came in contact with this app to think of my business.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

I had built an app with another developer about a year and a half prior to this project. Magespider Infoweb made significant improvements to the overall usability and look and feel of the app. The finished product is much more professional looking.

How did you come to work with Magespider Infoweb?

I found Magespider Infoweb on Upwork.

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

The total cost was less than $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

For the time being, the project is complete, but I plan to continue adding questions and content to the sections as time goes on.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

That's hard to measure in my business, but I know that the app has been very well received since it was completed about six weeks ago [March 2016]. In June, there are two large conferences in Baltimore and Sacramento, and a colleague of mine is going to have my app on display in both locations.

How did Magespider Infoweb perform from a project management standpoint?

They did well. I was able to tell them what I didn't like and what I wanted to change in terms of look and functionality. They figured out how to do what I asked them to do. Their communication was also good, considering we are on opposite sides of the planet.

What distinguishes Magespider Infoweb from other providers?

In comparison to the previous app developer that I worked with, Magespider was more sophisticated in their abilities. This product is significantly more professional than the previous developers.

Is there anything Magespider Infoweb could have improved or done differently?

No. Not really.
