Feedback summary: 

Moove It successfully delivered a high-quality prototype on time and within budget, despite the additional round of work requested. In addition to exceeding expectations, their team is easy to work with, communicative, and very proactive in their approach. Their additional input has been invaluable.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the CEO and co-founder of Goldfinch Health, a company that helps employees of self-insured employers in the US take advantage of an approach referred to as enhanced recovery. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Moove It?

We engaged Moove It to help us develop a case management application. Our platform would support occupational health nurses in tracking employees through disability periods, creating cases and scheduling follow-ups to ensure employees are staying on a path towards a recovery plan.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Moove It is developing a cloud-based software application for use on tablets, delivering a prototype designed through InVision.

What is the team composition?

I work with about five people, including designers, developers, and a couple of staff in leadership roles.

How did you come to work with Moove It?

One of their founders is based locally in Austin, Texas, so I was able to meet with him personally when I started searching for developers. I felt comfortable working with their team because they seemed to understand our business, our target market, and the challenges we face. They had previous experience developing similar technologies within the healthcare industry and—since they're based in South America—they also offer competitive rates.

How much have you invested with them?

We've invested just under $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We've been working together since July 2018, and the relationship is ongoing. We're in somewhat of a holding stage at the moment, but they were able to deliver our first set of mockups for a conference in the first week of September.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Moove It's deliverables have turned out better than we anticipated thus far. They've successfully brought our concept and vision to life, which has been a huge milestone for our company. We're very impressed with the quality of the work and their ability to incorporate additional ideas without taking away from our overall vision.

How did Moove It perform from a project management standpoint?

They've done a good job of executing on time and communicating directly to us as needed. When we proposed new ideas and changed the scope of work, they were very flexible and redesigned much of the work they'd already done without negatively impacting our deadline.

We mostly communicate through Slack, Google Hangout, and Zoom meetings. InVision has also been a useful tool because it allows us to view mockups throughout the process.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They do a great job of incorporating our feedback and providing their own input where they feel it would improve outcomes. It's been a very productive engagement overall.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. We had a few issues involving formatting differences between the US and South America at first, but we were able to overcome those barriers very quickly.

Feedback summary: 

Their development work produced excellent results, with their skilled developers providing a precise and useful platform. They manage the project effectively and present interesting proposals throughout the collaboration, though could maintain the same team to ensure smoother workflow.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a developer, coordinating the digital services department of a credit card processing company, specifically the digital services department.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Moove It?

One of the services our company offers is invoice collection and we needed software to process payments for business.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed software used by business to process payments, working on the frontend and the services parts. The backend was worked on in-house.

We also have an end-user solution which is a payment portal. Users can pay for services without having to go through a physical, specific payment point.

They used Ruby on Rails and native mobile app development for Android and iOS for the portal and its platform.

What is the team composition?

Though it changes, we’ve had a team of five developers.

How did you come to work with Moove It?

A technology manager from Uruguay started the relationship with them, and we found them from there.

How much have you invested in them?

We spend around $30,000 per month.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in 2012 and our collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have a very high opinion of them. Compared with other companies in the region, they’re better. They have a great methodology and are very precise and methodical. Their technical knowledge is also great and on top of the deliverables they give us, they provide us with extra knowledge and education.

Any time they find an issue, they provide us with different solutions and their recommendations. On top of that, they participate in the development of new products and services on a consultation basis. In general, we’re very happy with them and I believe they provide us with great added value.

How did Moove It perform from a project management standpoint?

We use Jira as a project management tool and they present proposals using InVision. We have weekly calls to communicate, and then every two weeks after each sprint. We also use Slack for daily communication.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re great as consultants—we always come to them to discuss new ideas, products, and projects. They’re not just a software factory that complies with specifications, they always provide an extra value. They’re also great at time management and are aware of the importance of meeting deadlines.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could have less rotation on their personnel. I understand it’s inevitable for the nature of a software factory, but sometimes it affects us as we might lose a developer that was already at a senior position and get a junior that has to learn all over our processes.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

No.

Feedback summary: 

Moove It’s staff has handled the development process smoothly via diligent, transparent communication. Professional and personable, they interface well even with non-technical individuals and provide detailed invoices for their work.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of Stafapp. We’re a staffing and database platform for the commercial due diligence and real estate vertical.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Moove It?

I was looking for someone to help me realize my business concept after a bad experience with a previous developer forced me to start the project over.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They handled the entire product development for our platform, which gives people the ability to locate and hire professional consultants for projects with tight deadlines. Our goal was to shorten that process to require only a single button click instead of coordinating through phone calls or emails. Moove It helped us automate the process, using Ruby on Rails for the backend and React Native to build mobile apps for iOS and Android.

What is the team composition?

There were three developers who worked on the whole project with us, but, at some points, there were as many as 10.

How did you come to work with Moove It?

They’d already been on my list from previous searches, and they had an office here in Texas. I called and asked them to take over as soon as I’d gotten my money back from the previous contractor.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent over $100,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in February 2018, and the project is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’re very transparent about their process and any challenges that come up, whether it’s on their end or ours. They’ve also been flexible and accommodating to us as a small, busy startup. Even when I can’t get back to them within 24–48 hours, they’re always patient and tackle other elements of the project until I can respond.

How did Moove It perform from a project management standpoint?

They communicate extremely well about the process. We always know how much longer it’s going to take. I had access to their internal Agile system, although I’ve never looked at it because they also send weekly invoices of how much time they spent on different elements of the project. I’m always aware of what’s happening.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re personable and easy to communicate with. Even with their technical expertise, they were patient about re-explaining things for me and putting the explanations into words I could understand. They’ve also done a great job with the development so far.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We ran into a language barrier at first, but that was the only issue. The learning curve there lasted a couple of weeks until we figured out how to talk to each other so that everyone could understand the tasks and project goals.

I'm the CTO of Grammarplanet, an online education company that teaches grammar.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Moove It?

My partner and I wanted to convert our program from a print format to an interactive web-based program.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Moove It designed and developed our web-based educational program from scratch, using MongoDB and variations of JavaScript. They continue to add new features and content as needed. 

What is the team composition?

We work with a few designers and developers, as well as a project manager.

How did you come to work with Moove It?

I engaged a couple different vendors that had positive reviews on Clutch, and ultimately decided to work with Moove It based on their experience and portfolio of work. They also responded very well to our RFP and were reasonably priced. Because they had offices both in the US and in South America, we were able to negotiate a better rate by working with team members from both of their locations.

How much have you invested with them?

We've invested about $70,000 thus far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in February 2018, and the relationship is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The website essentially is our business, so their work has been invaluable. They've done exceptionally well in designing a site that's user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing. Their team has also done an excellent job in understanding our needs and goals, and the site turned out better than we envisioned.

How did Moove It perform from a project management standpoint?

They've been flexible as we've made changes to the scope of work, and very responsive from the start. Any issues with miscommunications or transitioning of members on their team were dealt with relatively quickly and easily. They're also very nice and accommodating overall.

They work in sprints and use standard tools for tracking projects, including Google Docs and some of their own internal tools.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have been and continue to be a pleasure to work with. Despite the fact that the majority of their Uruguay office staff's first language isn't English, we haven't had any language barrier issues.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There were times when they could've performed more testing, but because they relied on me to fully to test everything, they missed a few simple fixes unnecessarily.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I was head of engineering at a decision-making platform for high school and early college students. We did a battery of aptitude assessments and ran the scores from those assessments through a career-matching algorithm in order to provide recommendations on the careers at which the students might be good and to help them make decisions about their education.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Moove-It?

We had an existing product but needed to continue to make changes in response to customer feedback. We needed to get started with that very quickly. Rather than hiring people in-house, we engaged with Moove-It to get going quickly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Moove-It helped us with Ruby on Rails development, as well as AngularJS. They also did a lot of frontend development. They helped us overhaul our look and feel throughout the entire process. The design came from a separate agency, and Moove-It was in charge of the development. We did do some testing together, but the marketing was all handled separately. It was full lifecycle development, so they worked together with us and the designers to generate requirements, do the development, and handle testing.

How did you come to work with Moove-It?

I worked with them at a previous job.

How much have you invested with Moove-It?

I don’t have that information.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together about two years ago, and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I was very happy with the quality of work we got from Moove-It, both from the individual code level as well as the attention from the people responsible for managing our account. They were always monitoring the engagement and finding places where they could do more. They figured out how to adjust the process to deliver faster. I’m very satisfied with them.

How did Moove-It perform from a project management standpoint?

We did well. There were situations where something grew larger than we expected, but we were engaged as if the employees at Moove-It were part of our team. We communicated together more than daily and managed the process and deliverables as a team.

What did you find most impressive about Moove-It?

They were able to start right away, which was important for us. We had occasions where they lost a team member, or we needed to change our scale, and they were very responsive to that.

Are there any areas Moove-It could improve?

I can’t pick out anything.

SPINE is an advanced 3D visualization studio founded in 2000. We create 3D digital assets for a number of architectural companies, building developers, advertising agencies, product manufacturers, and the like.

I am the chairman and CEO of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Moove-it?

While we handle the majority of the artwork in-house, we do need to align ourselves with good programmers. We've tried to do this internally time and time again, and it hasn't been that effective for us, so we reached out to Moove-it as a strategic partner so that we can provide a more turn-key solution to clients.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We provide all the digital assets for our projects. We create the actual product, but the end user's ability to interact with and navigate around the product is not our core competency. Using a variety of tools like Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, C++, and all other advanced languages that I am unfamiliar with, Moove-it will create a user interface and navigation, making sure that it's responsive on different devices. Nowadays, users may want to access these applications on smartphones, tablets, or desktops. Moove-it will lay out our assets in a way that is easy to use and works across different platforms.

How did you come to work with Moove-it?

We found Moove-it through an employee who started out as a freelancer. He ended up wanting to make a career change, and made the initial connection to Moove-it and introduced us. When the next project came along, we reached out and had a seamless process.

How much have you invested with Moove-it?

For a particular interactive experience developed by Moove-it, we paid them roughly $15,000. Our iOS project took around 40 hours or six weeks of programming time. We've hired them for enhancements to that same application, and have brought Moove-it onboard for other work as well.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Moove-it a year-and-a-half ago, and have an ongoing collaboration.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Metrics would be something that our clients could determine, but the thing which was most important for us was communication. This area is a bit foreign to us, and it involves different updates to browsers and coding languages. New products are always coming out, so having a team which understands all of these nuances, can work through the troubleshooting, and can clearly communicate how the product will be laid out, has been essential for us. The internal teams and freelancers we've used in the past have had disconnects, which caused problems for us. Clients already know that we're working with third parties, and we had missed deadlines, running the risk of losing an account.

When we brought in Moove-it, they were introduced to our client as a strategic partner, and we involved them in GoToMeetings. The process was seamless, they communicated clearly when clients were confused, took the time to walk them through the process, and we haven't had any problems with missed deadlines. Things have been kept on schedule and on budget.

How did Moove-it perform from a project management standpoint?

Moove-it's team was very professional. Even though they work in a different location, it was like having a natural extension of our office. We've dealt with a couple of different people from Moove-it's team, including their engagement manager. He has been more on the sales front, and helped pitch projects, scope out the work, put together pricing and get a true understanding of what the client's needs are.

It's been a very nice process working with Moove-it since I'm more involved on the front end and securing contracts. Once we do get a project together, it will be handed off to Moove-it's project managers who serve as the main point of contact on their side. They communicate with our account manager, who is more involved on the 3D production side. Moove-it has integrated very well with our team.

What did you find most impressive about Moove-it?

Their professionalism. We had been dealing with many novices and Moove-it stood out as professionals. There is a premium to pay for that, but it really does make a big difference.

Are there any areas Moove-it could improve?

We have had nothing but a pleasurable experience working with Moove-it, and the only caveat has been that their programming fees are a little higher than we would normally pay, so we haven't brought them onboard for as many projects as we would have liked. While some clients have not had a problem with that, we could have given Moove-it an additional four or five projects in the last year-and-a-half if the pricing had been more competitive.

More creative ways in which Moove-it could offer better pricing, as well as a quicker turnaround, would be an improvement. They're very thorough, and we can understand that, but many of our clients procrastinate, so we're faced with crazy deadlines for a majority of the time. We're wired for the rendering and animations needed for 3D assets, and we can ramp up quickly, but it's harder for me to judge the interactive component. It's a different type of medium and technology, so we need to rely as Moove-it being as streamlined as possible.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Numerex Corp. is based in Atlanta, Georgia. We provide fleet tracking, security solutions, and oil and gas tank monitoring. I was the Senior Director of Software Development.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Moove-it?

Our company had a couple of engineers who were starting to form the foundation of our applications, but we needed additional development help.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Moove-it provided web user interface development for our Fast tracking applications using Ruby on Rails. We run the apps from our datacenters in Atlanta, and Moove-it is primarily responsible for their maintenance.

We use the term “Fast” as a branding name for our applications. They were built on three tiers: a device level, network level, and an application level. The device level is more specific to hardware engineers for the components that we purchase from third parties. Our hardware has cellular, radio, GPS, accelerometers, and so on. Moove-it didn't physically touch the devices, but they did work at the network level, within what we called the gateway, which is a Java-based application utilizing open-source code. Moove-it developed some of the components which were responsible for taking readings off of devices, including GPS info, speed, and acceleration. The gateway needed to process this information and route it to an application. This is done differently for each device, depending on its manufacturer. The actual format of the information would differ. Moove-it wrote parts of our application which reformatted and normalized the data.

Moove-it's core strength was within the Ruby on Rails application layer. An example of the development they did would be onboarding a new device, and adding ownership models for distributors, customers, and users. Moove-it received requirements from us and remodeled the application around what we needed. Moove-it was in charge of database, controller, and view designs, which were built using JavaScript and CSS.

One of my last projects with Moove-it involved adding new, different types of visualizations to the application. We had readings which came in with different pieces of information, and wanted the ability to display this onto the application. Information was added to the database as well as the controllers, making sure that they went up into the higher levels. We then placed this onto the views within different parts of the app. Moove-it also handled more complex tasks than the examples I gave.

We had a continuous cycle, and viewed Moove-it more as a development partner than a contractor. There wasn't a period of time during my collaboration with them when there weren't 7-8 people from Moove-it on my team.

How did you come to work with Moove-it?

Back in 2008, we googled for Ruby on Rails contract development. We wanted to target a firm in the western hemisphere in order to eliminate time zone differences. One of the top hits was Moove-it. Our company reached out to them and began the onboarding process. It turned out that Moove-it had greater knowledge than the team that had actually started the endeavor. Once things got rolling, we maintained one architect in the Dallas area, and had Moove-it as our development team.

How much have you invested with Moove-it?

We negotiated an hourly price with Moove-it. Individual projects ranged from 250 to 3,000 hours.

What is the status of this engagement?

I am no longer employed with Numerex Corp., but I do know that Moove-it is still working with the company, and they're still responsible for portions of the applications. I have been looking to bring Moove-it in for development for my new company.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I rate Moove-it a 10/10 for quality of work. I've been a skeptical individual in terms of software development. I used to work for the telecom industry, where we handled development in-house, but slowly began doing contract work with overseas developers in Asia. That experience left a bad taste in my mouth. I found the quality to be sub-standard, and that contractors took several times longer than expected to complete a task. They viewed individual developers as plug-and-play cogs in a wheel.

When I was introduced to Moove-it in 2012, my initial impression was that history was repeating and it would be an awful experience. Moove-it completely changed my mind about contract development, or staff augmentation, as I like to call it. The quality of work and Moove-it's involvement in the process were extraordinary. They didn't view themselves as a source of cheap labor, but rather sought out clients for which Moove-it could become a software development partner, filling out the in-house team.

I've visited Moove-it's headquarters in person every year for the past 3 years, working side-by-side with them. I can say that Moove-it is a quality software development shop which adheres to the Agile process. Moove-it had daily standups talking about my projects, and did retrospectives every 2 weeks, going over what went well and what didn't. Moove-it always asked me how the product was being received, and what the feedback was in terms of quality. Moove-it went so far as to make particular suggestions for improving the product, which I didn't find even within my US team. If I could crank it to 11, I would. I've been really impressed with Moove-it's quality and productivity.

How did Moove-it perform from a project management standpoint?

I had a prime contact from Moove-it. I came up with all the requirements and handed them over to that person. We'd discuss them and I'd receive estimates broken down into line items. I submitted the document to my company as a purchase request, got it signed off, and started the work. I received weekly reports on individual projects. As a software development manager, Moove-it did everything right in order to make me happy.

What did you find most impressive about Moove-it?

When I'm working with Moove-it, I don't feel like I'm working with a contracting or outsourcing firm, but with an actual team. We became so blended together that I ceased to see Moove-it's team differently than my US employees.

Are there any areas Moove-it could improve?

Moove-it has specialized in a few key areas which have become a part of their business. From a selfish perspective, I wish that I could ask Moove-it for some embedded C++ code, even though it's not what they do.

Moove-it exceeded high standards in quality and accurately translated broad ideas into a functional product. The team is genuinely concerned with the platform’s success, is open to new ideas, and collaborates well in an engaged and open partnership.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

MapRight is a web-based mapping program which allows marketing professionals to make maps of their properties. I am the head of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Moove-it?

I needed development resources, and didn't know where to begin.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Moove-it has been our web and mobile developer, handling 100% of the development for our platform. We have an iPad application, and are also starting to build a smartphone version. Mobile will become a bigger part of our efforts.

Moove-it has provided design ideas to us for the application, in terms of layouts, flow, and ease of use. We need the program to be intuitive and to work cleanly.

How did you come to work with Moove-it?

A previous partner had done development work using Moove-it, and liked what they did. He recommended them to us. I would have had a tough time finding a partner on my own.

How much have you invested with Moove-it?

The total cost of Moove-it's services has been between $300,000 and $500,000. We contract 100 hours of development per week from Moove-it, which has fluctuated since we began our relationship.

What is the status of this engagement?

We have been working with Moove-it for 2 years. We have an ongoing relationship.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I have very high standards in terms of product quality. My background is in making custom mapping, and I've been using specialized software for many years. Moove-it has hit my standards, and I have no complaints. The thought process on how to achieve our goals has always been good. Moove-it took my half-baked ideas and made them work.

How did Moove-it perform from a project management standpoint?

Moove-it has performed fine, but I'm not very concerned with deadlines. It's nice to have goals, but if the feature will get done regardless, it doesn't matter very much.

What did you find most impressive about Moove-it?

I like Moove-it's people. They seem interested and involved in my program's success, almost as if they were part-owners. Moove-it cares about my platform, so if we're working on anything new, I can present my ideas, build a mock-up, and come up with potential issues. There is a back-and-forth process with Moove-it, which I think is the right way to go.

Are there any areas Moove-it could improve?

No, there's nothing that stands out.
