Feedback summary: 

Nickelfox works quickly and delivers great value for money. The team has managed the project well, keeping everything organized. In addition to having a good understanding of the business' needs, they also come up with exceptional concepts. They also put a lot of effort into their work.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-founder and product design manager at Ubirider, a travel platform. We aim to change urban mobility to a more digital and connected one with smooth UX.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Nickelfox?

We needed a company to design and develop a new interface for one of the components that we have in our product. It’s a machine that buses use to sell tickets on board.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Nickelfox designed and developed a new interface for an app for Android and tablets. The app is for an onboard machine that buses use to sell tickets and to see if the tickets are validated, even the ones that are bought online or in our app. 

The interface is supposed to work at the point of sale (POS) that is on board or in the ticket office. It’s almost the same with some variations. They have to accommodate different ticket options. For the next three months, the team will still be helping with any bugs.

What is the team composition?

We work with a project manager, one Android developer, and two designers. The designers were sometimes invited to join us.

How did you come to work with Nickelfox?

They contacted us through LinkedIn. They found our CEO and sent their portfolio. At that time, we were looking for a service company. We looked at their portfolio and asked them for a value proposition and we started to engage with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about €15,000 (approximately $17,600 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in March 2020, and the work is ongoing. The build took 3–4 months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We like them and we like the value they bring. It was our first time hiring a service company. Nickelfox is very easy to work with. They hear us very well, and they understand everything. 

How did Nickelfox perform from a project management standpoint?

We didn’t structure the project very well in our heads in the first place, so it was a little hard in the beginning. Their project management was good. The project manager was very organized and always on top of everything. 

It's going very smoothly. They share their Slack channel and Asana with us. We’ve always had access to them. The one difficulty is language. Sometimes we have difficulty passing on the concept, but it’s okay.  

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team is very fast. We had some brainstorming and then the following day, they presented some impressive ideas. They are very strong when it comes to organizing the work.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I’m not sure if it was totally their fault, but I told them the design and the UX could be a little more out-of-the-box. However, we were still structuring the project as we were going. It was difficult for them to come up with solutions that were exactly what we wanted because we didn’t know what we wanted.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It’s really nice working with them. They’re very positive and put in the effort to deliver really nice work. Even when we weren’t satisfied with everything, they started a new conversation with the management, and we decided to put a little more time into the work. 

Nickelfox did it really fast and well. I recommend working with them. They have a really nice price range, and they’re very easy to work with and talk to.

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 Smartex. We build hardware and software for industrial applications.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Nickelfox?

We’re developing a machine learning platform with web and local applications. We’ve mainly worked with Nickelfox on web and UI development. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’ve deployed three projects to them, starting with an online dashboard that displays graphs. Nickelfox built the backend and frontend of that. They also designed and programmed the UI for a machine station built for Android tablets. We have more projects in the pipelines with them.

What is the team composition?

We’ve worked with 2–3 project managers from Nickelfox so far. I’ve also seen 2–3 of their designers in our meetings, along with a couple of programmers. There are about 10 programmers working for us right now.

How did you come to work with Nickelfox?

We’re an industrial company that provides technologies for manufacturing, textile factories in this case. We were looking for a team that could provide developers with industrial backgrounds. 

UI designs are typically different in manufacturing. We asked for many proposals and shot in many directions. I believe we found Nickelfox on LinkedIn, and their proposal was the best in terms of price and quality.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost so far is $20,000–$30,000, and we have $50,000 worth of projects in the pipeline.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Nickelfox at the beginning of 2020, and our engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

What I like the most about Nickelfox is that they’re extremely fast. We usually have few meetings with large achievements.

How did Nickelfox perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re super lean in terms of deadlines, and they’re one of the most affordable solutions I’ve found. We haven’t had any problems from this standpoint, and they also allow us to pay in installments.

Their developers are in our Slack channels, and we have kickoff meetings and touchpoints with the project manager through Zoom or WhatsApp calls.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The price and quality balance is just right, and the team is very fast. We’re comfortable working with Nickelfox, and we plan to assign more projects to them. Their business developer answers all our emails and calls, even during the night and on weekends. I always have someone to talk to on their side.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Pricing can always be improved, but that’s just my personal bias. I haven’t found a company with a better price. We’re quite happy on the technical and business sides.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Having them within our Slack channels is useful for our programmers. On the business side, the informal approach we have makes a lot of sense to me in terms of adjudicating projects on WhatsApp.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a small business that provides parents with images of what’s left on their children’s plates at the end of lunch at school. My partner and I completely run the business at the moment.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Nickelfox?

They were responsible for developing two mobile apps and a web app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They created a very basic web app that functions as an admin panel. There, parents can see pictures of school lunch offerings and nutritional data. They created an iOS and an Android app, but the consumer app was Android-only. That’s because our users are mostly using Android at this point. They developed everything from scratch.  

What is the team composition?

We spoke with the founders to define the scope. After that, we were assigned a project manager and several engineers. At some point, I believe everyone at their organization worked on the project. 

How did you come to work with Nickelfox?

While doing online research, we were having trouble locating a strong partner in Europe. We expanded our research to India at the recommendation of our networks and came across them. From there, we started searching for developers with a background in the education space, and they checked all of our criteria. 

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $40,000 with them and are about to invest another $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since January 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve been beta testing their apps in a real-life environment. Their work has been tested and made available on top app stores.  

How did Nickelfox perform from a project management standpoint?

We can count on them day and night to keep our project running smoothly. They’ve been incredible project managers.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their price point is very impressive for the quality of work they can provide. They offer great attention to detail, making sure that they’re creating the best possible product. We’ve developed a transparent, efficient relationship.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We’d love to see them expand their design and UI expertise.  

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Come to them with a defined scope. We counted on them throughout that process, and they were able to take that on. However, the project would’ve been more efficient if we had come to them with ideas.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

NeonMill is an online consultation and health record platform for patients. NeonMill enables access of hundreds of healthcare professionals to the patients in need.

Blockchain-enabled medical record storage for ensuring security isn't breached and documents are stored safely and easily accessible to all relevant personnel. I am the founder and CEO of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Nickelfox?

Nowadays, electronic medical records are kept in data centres. Moreover, access to these records is limited to hospital and caretakers. Since this information is centralised, therefore it is quite expensive and prone to security hacks.

In the blockchain network, the medical histories of each patient are shared among doctor, hospital and insurance regulators. If this shared ledger is updated, then the change is transferred and reflected across all the people having authorized access in this network. We wanted to partner with a development agency to build our platform especially one having experience with blockchain.

What were your goals for this project?

The project entailed development of a platform with multiple user types primary being the patients who are looking for doctors to receive a consultation. Second users being the doctors/healthcare professionals providing these consultation services.

The platform included, iOS & Android Apps, Responsive Website, Multiple Admin Panels and core Machine learning model for intelligent profile matching and suggestions. Scope also included creating UI & UX for a seamless user experience across the selected target audience.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We got connected through a reference from one of my friends. After interviewing the core team we were convinced of their capabilities to handle the technology challenge of implementing blockchain to avail the platform with a high level of security.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Upon start of the project we had high level requirements listed and a goal to achieve. Since, we had the initial requirement for the project laid out. The team at Nickelfox helped us map out the product release phases.

They also did the analysis of the entire system from a technical perspective. All these details were captured in a detailed scope of work. After the scope detailing, they also delivered the wireframe and prototypes of the design for the entire platform.

After wire-framing the development started simultaneously for web, mobile and backend. All this detailed planning helped us to have a seamless delivery of our MVP as expected.

What was the team composition?

For our project, We had 1 Project Manager, a team of 7 members comprising of Developers & Designers and Tester aligned to us by Nickelfox.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Results were great with the initial beta launch that we did with select hospitals and health care providers. As we now have the product launched for everyone in the healthcare industry, we are able to gather more data and feedback to focus on areas that require further beefing up of security and data storage so we may move everything onto our blockchain network.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We had weekly meetings with the project manager, which helped a lot in prioritising tasks effectively. Although the details and status of internal daily meetings and tasks was available for us to review on the management tool.

For project management we used Asana, Slack was the main communication tool. Github had all the code pushed everyday for reviews and backup purposes as well.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The technical knowledge and execution of the team are commendable.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There is very little they could improve given the quality output they managed to deliver. They could have although added a few more team members for the project and maybe have entire team included in the brainstorming sessions for further enhancements to products.

What is the team composition?

I interact with Swati (Project Manager) on a regular basis and an account manager from time to time.

They’ve met our prescribed benchmarks such as user-friendliness and UX-driven design for the solutions. Our platforms have wonderful reviews. Overall, Nickelfox is doing a good job.

How did Nickelfox perform from a project management standpoint?

Twice a week, we meet via Slack for status tracking. We also communicate through email. The account manager follows up occasionally to see how the team is performing. Nickelfox really listens to what we say.

They had a great amount of knowledge about animation. They came up with great ideas on the fly, as well. Whenever edits needed to be made, they got them done on time. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of anything. Any feedback we had on their work was always handled speedily. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have a preliminary call and discuss the project. See if they have any ideas of their own because it was really valuable to hear their feedback on the animation ideas.

Feedback summary: 

The team provided their partner with a solution that is far superior to alternatives. The final product has received positive feedback and hasn't experienced any major functionality issues. Their willingness to problem-solve and make themselves available on a flexible schedule added value.

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 executive director of Currinda Pty Ltd, and we're an event and conference organizing company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Nickelfox?

We needed someone to develop an application for our company.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We have software that handles all the preparation for the conference but we needed a single native app that would produce a custom app for our current event. That would avoid us having to translate data from one database to another.

The main function of the app was to provide delegates access to the program. We wanted it to be interactive access that enabled polling, note-taking, and sharing via email.

We wanted them to be able to find topics and look through buyer profiles. The information was already there in the database. The challenge was getting it displayed in an accessible and reliable format while being able to customize it for each event. We're used for more than 200 events each year. Not all of them have an app, but that's quickly changing. 

At this point, the app is live and complete. Now, they make sure the software is up to date.

What is the team composition?

We worked with three people from their team on this project.

How did you come to work with Nickelfox?

Someone on our team was aware of them and their work. He alerted us to them. They had pretty good credentials, pricing, and experience. 

How much have you invested in them?

We have spent around $40,000–$60,000 AUD (approximately $26,956–$40,434 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them in November 2018, and the collaboration is still ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

People have been happy with the app. Through several versions and iterations, it's been really stable and the feedback from delegates indicates that it's a useful tool. That's significant because many delegates are pretty skeptical about the value of an app at the conference.

From our perspective, the alternative to these apps is to print out a book. Those are often out of date due to program changes anyway. The app is dynamic because it accurately draws from the database.

There were a number of early issues to do with logging in, which our delegates pointed out. Those API issues have since been corrected, and people are concentrating on the app itself. They really are enjoying it.

How did Nickelfox perform from a project management standpoint?

We had a couple of people we could go to with questions and concerns. While we're in different timezones, we didn't have any trouble communicating. Some of their team worked around the clock.

Communication was pretty straightforward. We had a couple of teleconferences and initially went through a wireframing phase to make sure we were on the same page. I thought it was a good process.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were essentially always there for our team, responding to us. When there were problems, they didn't disappear. Instead, they held themselves accountable. They worked with us the whole way to make sure that we got the right product.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It would be great if they moved to our country. Even with the nature of the experience, I was pretty happy with it. That's why we entered the maintenance with them so willingly. We're very keen to keep working with them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have open communications with them. We didn’t make any assumptions and always asked questions whenever we weren’t certain about something. They were good with their answers.

Feedback summary: 

Internal stakeholders are pleased with Nickelfox’s reliable work and cost-effectiveness. Unlike other providers, they offer both development and design services at a price point that’s manageable for startups. Customers can expect an engaged partner that integrates deeply with internal practices.

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 COO of Helios Life Enterprises. We focus on providing voice data for alpha generation across asset managers, fund managers, and corporate.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Nickelfox?

We hired them primarily for backend engineering.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Their work is utilizing existing Google Cloud managed services, with our team acting as a more architectural lead. It’s very beneficial to leverage them in that space, but they also do custom React work on the frontend. 75% of the time, they work in Google to make sure our infrastructure can support the big data pipeline.

How did you come to work with Nickelfox?

I’d known the firm previously.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $160,000–$180,000 with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together for about a year, since December 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s a combination of automated metrics that speak to reliability. There is also data to show they support our sales pipeline. Most of it is non-quantitative, but I have confidence in what we’re building. They’ve also helped with getting some of our data in, and our in-house team audits that work.

How did Nickelfox perform from a project management standpoint?

I don’t rely on them solely for it, but they do fine with what we need them to do.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s their combination of agility and cost-effectiveness. I find it unusual from places I’ve worked with that they can support technical products and also roll in design pretty well. Normally, there isn’t a blend of those things unless you pay an expensive premium, which is usually tough for a newer company.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They’re not the most technically proficient, but I knew that going in.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They should in someone who’s extremely proficient in at least some of these stacks. Even if they’re not based on India, it would be a game-changer for their company. They have some senior and junior resources, but adding someone beyond senior that has a hardcore understanding of the technology would be great.

Distill out and understand the concepts of what agile development means. Make sure there’s a willingness to treat them as an extension of your team rather than a “throw it over the wall” team. They’ll loop into your team daily and work extra hours for your project. They come in and do the things we assign so we make sure we’re overly communicative. Employing a tool like Slack helps clarify communication expectations.
