The Review
Feedback summary: 

Both the Android and iOS apps have received highly positive user ratings on their respective online stores. MobiDev called upon their coding expertise to recommend an effective mobile database, and it made a difference in the app’s speed. They offer organized and timely project management.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the president of Project Petrucci LLC, one of the largest classical music websites online.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with MobiDev?

We wanted a mobile app to go with our website.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They created a PDF Viewer. We needed them to replicate features from a website that has been around for 12 years. They had to work with the existing website as well just getting the data off of it. Then we had to deal with subscriptions, charging the user, and how to get it approved with Apple and Google.

Then there’s the social aspect to the Android and iOS apps they developed. They developed features so users could share stuff with other people in life in real time. Users could comment on a document in real time.

The iOS app is the latest Swift, PDFKit, and Core Data. On the Android side, it’s more varied because there’s more third-party stuff. They used Kotlin as opposed to Java. Their developer suggested a big database for the app, which turned out to be pretty important.

What is the team composition?

We started out with a team of two people and now there’s eight people. There’s a designer on the team who is really good. We also worked with a project manager.

How did you come to work with MobiDev?

After looking around on different freelance sites and doing lots of interviews, it was clear to me that MobiDev knew how to get things going. They already had a plan the first time I talked to them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent over $500,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

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

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re getting rave reviews on the Android app for how fast and how smooth everything is. We also have great ratings on the App Store. I get emails from customers saying how great the app is and how much better it is over the website. Now it’s up to us to promote the app. There are so many more features we’re planning. It’s going to be ongoing for a long time.

They delivered excellent quality work. The database their developer suggested turned out to be a really good choice. I wouldn’t have gone for it since it’s pretty new, but it turned out to be really fast.

How did MobiDev perform from a project management standpoint?

We have an effective communication system. They send me their questions daily. I respond in the afternoon or evening and they look at my notes the next morning. We have calls twice a week with the team. If there’s something that’s faster to explain over Skype, we do that. There has never been a problem. We can send them notes and they’ll get it very early our time and they’ll look into it.

Compared to most other apps I’ve seen, ours is more complex. We had to go through lots of notes, design meetings, and decisions. They kept up with it. Their project manager is extremely organized. By now, I’ve probably sent them over 1,000 pages of notes and he still keeps track of everything I say. I’ve been looking on their tracker and we’re up to more than 5,000 which includes bugs and other requests combined.

They’re the best at mobile development. They’ve got the entire process down and the tools. The iOS and Android teams seem to communicate really well. I never have to repeat anything I said before. The Android folks got the stuff from the iOS folks and that worked well.

Everybody that I’ve worked with has been very professional. They know what they’re doing. They get things done.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They really took on the project on as their own. They take pride in the project, which makes a very big difference.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I can’t think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Stay connected and get their opinions. Don’t try to force them to do things without having discussed everything. They make their thoughts known. I found over time, there’s a balance between asserting what you want and really trying to understand where they’re coming from.

They have their boots on the ground and they know the code. Sometimes the code wants to go a certain way that you don’t realize until you really have a good conversation with them.

The app debuted to positive reviews from customers and praise from stakeholders. The high-quality build and smooth UI/UX beat expectations. MobiDev’s knowledgeable and proactive team lead a seamless workflow thanks to constant communication, organization, and timely delivery.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the product manager for an online education company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with MobiDev?

We engaged MobiDev to develop the front- and backend of an application. We wanted to movie from a web-based solution to an app with a smooth and high-performing UI/UX.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We first created a design with MobiDev based on our initial ideas, and we leveraged existing content from the original site. Their team then advised us on how to set up our database while leveraging some existing infrastructure. We worked with a backend developer to define the logic behind users feeds. MobiDev helped us figure out the mechanics and timing behind our content posting and notifications—a detailed and intensive process.

After that, their team tested each feature extensively. They then set up environments for tests, staging, and production so we could run a final level of end-user testing. Everything worked as intended, and every feature was tested extensively twice. Finally, we pushed the app live.

The app is only for iOS devices at the moment. It serves two user groups, each with a specific set of features, notifications, post types, content, pictures, text, and more. MobiDev used JavaScript to create a web component, and we host our servers on AWS.
 
What is the team composition?

MobiDev has assigned us one front- and one backend developer, a project manager, and a QA tester. A second backend developer and frontend developer have come in at points to provide more help. The team comprises 5–8 people at a given time.
 
How did you come to work with MobiDev?

We posted an RFP on Upwork and received responses from several vendors. After whittling down the list based on our requirements and research into each firm, we felt that MobiDev gave the best offer. The team had an excellent reputation on the site with many hours logged and positive feedback from all of their clients. Also, as a bigger house, they offered more resources than a one-person development team.
 
How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $200,000–$400,000 so far
 
What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with MobiDev in August 2017, and the project is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app has received positive reviews from customers, who have praised its smooth UI/UX and top-notch front- and backend. The professionalism of the build reflects a more established company than ours, which has impressed both potential customers and investors. 

MobiDev has delivered a high-quality product that exceeds our expectations. The team frequently suggests alternate solutions and ways to improve our practices and approach. 
 
How did MobiDev perform from a project management standpoint?

The project manager is on top of all tasks. They always provide updates for our daily standup calls and notify us when they can’t deliver within an expected timeframe. We can reach out to them for requests and questions at any time as well.

The team hasn’t missed a deadline yet. Any members who temporarily step out are replaced by other resources who integrate seamlessly into the project. They are always responsive even on days with no active development, and they help walk me through each feature and how to use it before building. We organize development work through Jira’s ticketing system, which helps us keep track of extensive requirements and work against tight deadlines

What did you find most impressive about them?

MobiDev has assigned us multiple resources to work on our account. Working with a sizable, well-managed team has translated into rapid, high-quality development. Each team member has in-depth knowledge and a top-notch skill set. They are flexible and willing to work on weekends to make urgent deadlines. We appreciate their thorough testing processes, which require minimum checks and management on our end. They also are constantly thinking of ways to improve our approach and our final product. MobiDev is our first-choice development partner for any new requirements that arise.
 
Are there any areas they could improve?

No, they’ve done an outstanding job so far.
 
Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Be upfront about your requirements. Having a clear vision from the start will allow MobiDev to deliver the best solution possible to meet your needs. They are accommodating, flexible, and quick to learn.

Feedback summary: 

MobiDev completed the app on time and followed through on all necessary specifications. Their team displayed excellent flexibility in learning new technologies. Both honest and passionate, MobiDev offers a team of highly vetted and experienced technical personnel for a fair and transparent price.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the former co-founder, CTO, and VP of engineering of GrowthHackers, Inc., a growth marketing application and community.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with MobiDev?

We needed additional software engineers to help our onshore team handle a multi-faceted development for our flagship product, the GrowthHackers.com community.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

GrowthHackers, Inc. consists of resources, tools, and a community for companies that are in the growth stage. As such, our system helps both manage and ignite growth. We needed Ruby on Rails expertise, but at the time our two assigned MobiDev engineers were PHP developers. We gave them resources, assignments, and exercises in order to get them up to speed with Ruby and Ruby on Rails. Within 3–4 weeks, they became competent and confident Ruby on Rails engineers. They learned fast and started making essential contributions to development milestones.

What is team composition?

We started working with 2–3 people and then expanded to a team of 10–12 including a project manager to coordinate our efforts. I was able to talk to whoever I needed, including individual contributors, regarding technical details as well as to senior management for budgeting and growth projections. They are a highly professional organization and a pleasure to work with. I have even remained friends with many of the people I worked with or met in person during this engagement.

How did you come to work with MobiDev?

MobiDev was recommended to me by another of their very satisfied long-term customers, who happened to be a dear friend of my family. I also researched them on Elance (now Upwork) and found that they were one of the top vendors there. Their professionalism and technical ability seemed to exceed that of our previous offshore team. While MobiDev is somewhat more expensive, their team-based approach, attention to project management, and deep understanding of the development process made it worthwhile.

How much have you invested in them?

We spent between $50,000–$100,000. I don’t remember exactly, but it was a significant commitment on our part, both financially and in terms of our product development strategy.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them on this project from 2014–2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We reached milestones without delays, and everything was done according to specifications. Users were taking advantage of the product's features as they were being added continuously through regular sprints. MobiDev had a QA team and project management resources assigned to us that ensured we reached our product and delivery goals at high standards and on time.

How did MobiDev perform from a project management standpoint?

They provide robust, formalized practices and take project management seriously. I had weekly meetings with the project manager to review personnel, deliverables, any input I had, and future goals. A different weekly meeting allowed me to interact with our leads and several key individual contributors.

We communicated over Skype and Google Hangouts, while relying on Jira for issue tracking. MobiDev had access to our Jira account and certain AWS keys so they could work according to their time zone. Their teams blended well with our full-time product and engineering teams and were proactive and keen to point out things they knew we could improve together so as to provide a greater value to our users.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The executives I met were very impressive. What their CEO and team have been able to achieve, while staying humble and thoughtful, is nothing short of outstanding. We paid only for what they worked on, and we were not overcharged for anything. MobiDev as a company is invested in the technology community, participating in conferences, giving presentations, and sending their engineers to international competitions. Working with MobiDev was a material competitive advantage for us.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I cannot think of anything in particular. I feel that I had more to learn from them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

One thing we did that proved to be effective in hindsight is we started with only a two-person engineering team, while also allowing for project management resources in our initial budget. I can recommend this approach to others, because it will help the MobiDev team to build autonomy and also provide peace of mind to the hiring company. Project management might seem like an unnecessarily large percentage of the overhead initially, but for us, this investment proved to be worthwhile later on when we expanded our team under the auspices of MobiDev.

They’re professional and integrate well with our existing team, providing lots of open and honest feedback. We mainly communicate via Microsoft Teams, Skype, and Azure DevOps.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They respond quickly to resource requests, usually fulfilling our need within 10 business days.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. At the beginning, it took a while to figure out how to work with one another, but the cooperation is perfect now.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Don't always look at price. They weren’t the cheapest option, but that’s not always the best way to pick a partner.

Feedback summary: 

MobiDev succeeded in creating a product that garners exceedingly positive feedback from buyers. Their brilliant team offered a strong collaboration, investing thorough and thoughtful dedication to the specifications and delivering exactly as desired.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-founder of CERS - Creative Europe Reporting Software. We created a software that allows cultural corporation projects to account their financial expenses and report to the EU.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with MobiDev?

These cultural organizations are spread all over Europe. When they tried to record their expenses and put together reports, they had trouble putting everything together in one place. They sent Excel sheets from each organization to the next and had complete chaos. It took a lot of time to create these reports. We wanted to create a solution to simplify and expedite these processes.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had a clear vision and spent six months of hard work on wireframing. We developed every frame and function, totaling about 80 screens. The handbook was more than 50–60 pages. We handed these ideas and wireframes over to them. We needed it to be secure and developed quickly.

They understood what we were talking about within 1–2 weeks and then started development. The software is a Ruby on Rails project with a normal database behind it.

They continue to maintain it, adding new features and reacting to user requests to change things.

What is the team composition?

There were 2–3 developers, a project manager, and a QA specialist. My main point of contact was Nina (Client Care Manager, MobiDev). She is a great woman.

How did you come to work with MobiDev?

I found them on Upwork.

How much have you invested with them?

$40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

It took four months to develop. We started working together in September 2017 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

This is the best project I’ve had done. We get great feedback. We sell this piece, and we’re looking forward to the future.

How did MobiDev perform from a project management standpoint?

We collaborated closely with them, and they understood our complex requirements quickly. We had a close connection to the project manager, who is a genius. We were able to get the product to the finish line. I visited them in the office, and we had weekly calls. We used Redmine and email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It was great to have somebody who made a strong effort to understand our project. They took their time to understand what we wanted.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No.

Feedback summary: 

MobiDev completed their work on time, delivering a high-quality product that increased customer loyalty and attracted new business. Their dedicated team was flexible, communicative, and skilled. They brought value to the solution, and the positive experience led to a lasting partnership.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO and product owner at Comcash Inc. We develop ERP software for the retail industry, focusing heavily on grocery stores and wine and liquor retailers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire MobiDev?

We needed a development partner to assist us with some immediate projects, then continue to support our future efforts.

What were your goals for this project?

For the initial project, we wanted to complete an ERP product in one year.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We extensively searched online for Eastern European vendors with proven development capabilities and a focus on mobile solutions. We found MobiDev and reviewed their business. They were skilled across a variety of disciplines, and they offered a good price. The team was responsive from the start, so we chose to work with them.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

MobiDev helped us develop and release a comprehensive retail ERP product within a tight timeframe. They worked with PHP, React.js, .NET, and Xamarin technologies to build iOS, Android, and web-based versions of the solution. In addition to development, they also provided graphic design services. We continue to work with the team on additional projects.

What was the team composition?

We work with about 10 people with various specialties.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We released the product on time, and it’s been very successful. We have a next-generation solution to offer as an upgrade to our customers, which increases their loyalty. We’ve also attracted new and notable clients that would’ve never considered using the older, outdated product.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

I work closely with the assigned project manager, who leads a team of resources. During this project, we’ve had two different managers—each of them is helpful, smart, and effective. We communicate daily, sharing updates and solving any challenges that arise. They’re always available to assist with urgent matters.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We were able to staff a completely new team from MobiDev in the middle of the project. This allowed their developers to take on new challenges, and we got a renewed sense of excitement from the new resources working on our project. It was a smooth process, and the change was refreshing. I would’ve never been able to do this with an internal team because it generally takes years to train for certain tasks.

Are there any areas for improvement?

As partners, we’re always working to improve our inter-team operations through incremental changes. However, there aren’t any standout weaknesses overall.

Feedback summary: 

The final product meets all requirements and is successful. MobiDev was mindful of the needs, and went beyond the parameters of the scope to provide some additional functionality without impacting the budget.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the founder of Vision Del Mar, LLC, San Jose, CA. We design and build innovative healthcare, education, and lifestyle solutions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire MobiDev?

Creativity and innovation are our strengths, but we lack an internal development team. A reliable, high-quality outsource developer is a must for our operation. Specifically, we rely on outside coders to build software for iOS and Android devices.

What were your goals for this project?

We created a unique solution in emotional wellness management for families and doctors. We designed all features and functions internally and built prototypes to demonstrate them. Our goal was to build a market-strength software for release on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. To achieve that, we needed to find an outsource developer.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I contacted a few developers we worked with before, and also searched online for new possibilities. During that search, I met the CEO of MobiDev at a trade show in Santa Clara. I was impressed by his willingness to go over the technical details and the reasons we wanted to create this app. He understood our passions and submitted the best proposal from among the vendors who applied.

Describe the project in detail.

The project started with our detailed product specifications. MobiDev then assigned a team, held video conferences with us, and began an email exchange to refine the scope. We chose a fixed-price project, so they sent me a refined scope document, a schedule, and the cost. Once we agreed on everything, we entered an iterative cycle of development. It was a fairly typical process, but they moved very quickly.

What was the team composition?

The team consisted of a client account manager, a project manager, and various graphic designers, Java programmers, and QA engineers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The final product was delivered on time and at the agreed price. It met all our requirements and performed exactly according to specifications. This project is very much a success. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They provided constant updates, were very communicative and responsive, and did a very good job overall. 

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They cared about us and always wanted to show us how they were doing. They were always mindful of our needs and added back functions that we initially wanted but were out of scope due to budgetary constraints. When they found extra time, they implemented those functions at no extra cost.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can't find any areas they should improve.

Feedback summary: 

After a quick test phase, the app became one of the top lifestyle apps on the market. Through thorough analysis of business objectives and priorities and focus on mission and goals, MobiDev was on point in developing the software strategy that made a difference, delivering sweet success.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Inevitable Digital has a product called StayGo, which is a relationship and dating support application. It’s for people who are dating or are in relationships that want a little scientific guidance and feedback as to whether their relationship is on the right track and whether they should stay in the relationship. I’m head of operations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with MobiDev?

We didn’t have an in-house development team or an external development consultant. We have worked before with two different companies based in India. In working with companies out of India, the conversations weren’t about what our business objectives were, what our priorities were, or what was most important to focus on. I’d worked with developers in New York and the West Coast as well where I had the same experience. MobiDev had a mission and goal approach as opposed to tactics and strategies.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The app is cross-platform. It was developed using PhoneGap for iOS and Android. We wanted to be on both primarily mobile delivery systems. We also optimized for particular tablets and for desktop, but it wasn’t our primary consideration.

We leaned on them heavily for design. They created our stylebook. We gave our feedback on that, but we went through the same process that you would go through with a creative agency. Marketing isn’t something they offer, but the added benefit was a client service meets strategic support component.

What is the team dynamic?

Our team was made up of three developers, a project manager, and a part-time designer. They could ramp up or down as needed, but the team was pretty consistent over a year. We also had a client services manager assigned to us who was a non-billable person and made regular check-ins to make sure things were on track. They asked us for feedback and asked questions to be sure everything was running smoothly. They have a whole team of these people that reach out to clients.

How did you come to work with MobiDev?

I posted a job on Upwork. I got responses from 40 - 50 companies and individuals. Someone from Upwork looked at the list of applicants and recommended that I pay particular attention to MobiDev. He told me they were the number one rated software company in the world. I narrowed the list down to 5–6, and MobiDev’s approach was really different. The questions they asked were probing and helpful to me in shaping the approach we were going to follow.

The typical vendor would say they’re ready to take on the project right away and want to move forward. MobiDev put forth a customized presentation. They invested the time to do a legitimate presentation that looked super professional. It included questions that they wanted to follow up with. They were the only company that didn’t give an immediate budget. MobiDev let me know when their questions were answered they could give me an estimate. They had a set of processes for how a client gets brought onboard which was very different from the other companies I was looking at.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them at the end of 2015. In the middle of 2016, we moved forward with the full application. They continue to support the app. We are now evaluating a new module that we intend to build. They’re helping us by going through the same analysis process we went through the first time. They’re acting more as consultants now.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We did a test phase and did less than $1000 in marketing, and within less than two weeks, our StayGo application in the iTunes Store was ranked in the top 100 lifestyle apps out of 140,000 apps. People reviewed the app from Australia, Ukraine, USA, etc. We got a lot of credit for the content, the user experience, and ease of use. They built a great app.

How did MobiDev perform from a project management standpoint?

Skype has been our primary communications platform. We’ve used various kinds of software for sharing information and imagery for evaluation approvals and deliberation.

MobiDev is in eastern Ukraine and I was concerned initially about the time issues. Having worked with India, I found that I was regularly sleep deprived. I either had to get up early or start work at night in order to get anything done. I was also doing a lot of micromanaging. What I noticed with MobiDev was they did some time shifting with us because we’re in Los Angeles. We were getting calls mid-morning and I never had to lose sleep or stay up late at night. I noticed MobiDev was accommodating people on the East Coast through lunchtime, and people on the West Coast almost to lunchtime. That way quite a bit could get done in real-time communications, which was great for staying in sync. There was also the added benefit of waking up in the morning to find work that had been done while you were sleeping.

What did you find most impressive about them?

What made MobiDev different from the very first conversation and exchange of written information was that they were analyzing our business. In doing that early analysis of whom we are and what we wanted to accomplish, they were really focused on what the software strategy would be.

The quality of their team is also impressive. They have a super high technological intellect and skill. Whatever is the most contemporary, state-of-the-art tech stack that you could bring to a project, MobiDev appears to have that at their fingertips. That probably is a result of the people they hire. We double-checked some of their work and it seemed like the options they suggested were the most efficient, scalable, and cutting-edge technology. We would not just have momentary progress, but the progress could be built on going forward. We’ve gotten to know a good number of their people including Oleg, the founder and CEO. We’ve noted that every person that works at MobiDev has an incredible level of passion about what they do. The two designers we worked with were very good. Even the person who runs QA has a level of animation and excitement about what his purpose is that is really different than how other people would define that position. He sees himself as the final protector of the mission of the client. He doesn’t see himself as the bug fix-it guy.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They did a great job for us. I don’t have even a minor criticism. Anyone would be stupid not to have MobiDev on his or her short list of companies to talk to. Even if they don’t hire them, you can never lose by picking the brains of the really smart people at MobiDev. For any new startup or large enterprise, I think MobiDev should be on their list.
