Feedback summary: 

The client is very pleased with the product that NIX Solutions has developed. They have found their partnership with NIX Solutions to be very flexible and well coordinated and are particularly satisfied with their level of professionalism. The client recommends NIX Solutions to others and continues their partnership with them.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

I work at an integrated quiz-based knowledge platform. We provide cultural institutions, museums, and galleries with a means of making and sharing quizzes in order to engage visitors.

What is your role at the company?

I am the founder and CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with NIX Solutions?

We needed a reliable and consistent development partner – specifically for the iOS and Android applications on our platform. We'd been through a variety of contractors and small development companies and were becoming very frustrated with the lack of consistency and quality.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

NIX Solutions built out the iPhone and Android apps and integrated them with the back-end data platform [Parse]. There was also associated development work with the cloud code and, in general terms, integrating the data and analytics components of the platform with the apps.

How did you come to work with NIX Solutions?

We had previously tried a number of developers via recruitment platforms like Elance [now Upwork] and through people that we knew but were not satisfied. It was a "make-or-break" moment in the project, so we went through a very extensive selection process before deciding on NIX Solutions.

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

The cost will be between $10,000 and $50,000. The project and our partnership with NIX Solutions is ongoing.

What is the status of this engagement?

The initial phase was around three months, and we've continued to work sporadically with them for the last few months. We're gearing up for another development push soon, which will last for an additional three months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

The product has been developed to a point where we can make initial sales. There was much to do and NIX Solutions did it very well. Since that initial push, we have been working on a more fluid and flexible basis regarding feature development, which has also been working well.

What distinguishes NIX Solutions from other providers?

Initially, I was skeptical about the role of the project manager on their side, but I think having a liaison one step removed from the development team has worked excellently. It has made it much easier for us to coordinate and understand one another.

In hindsight, are there areas in which they could improve or things you might do differently?

NIX Solutions has many of their technical bases covered, but the addition of some Python programmers would be good.

Feedback summary: 

The client is very satisfied with their partnership with NIX Solutions. This client highlights NIX Solutions responsive delivery style as a reason for recommendation.

BACKGROUND

Please briefly describe what your company does and the role that you play there?

I am the founder and director of Stories360. We create GPS-based audio tours.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was the business challenge that you were trying to address when you approached NIX Solutions?

We have been building our business strategy for the past couple of years and are just about to launch the applications in May [2015]. Our challenge was solely development based. We had technical project management capability, so we just needed a competent development team.

SOLUTION

Can you talk about the scope of the project, what were the exact services or methodologies NIX Solutions provided or implemented?

We had detailed specifications for several pieces of technology that we wanted to build and NIX has provided that development and project management for us.

Can you give us a sense of the size of the project in dollar terms or personnel work hours?

Our project has two separate components the iOS application development and the Web application development. We have spent about $70,000 with NIX Solutions so far.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

When working with them, was there anything unique or special about them compared to other companies with which you may have worked?

The NIX Solutions team is very responsive, upfront, and strive to deliver on time and on budget.

Looking back on the project, is there any area that they could improve upon or that you would have them do differently?

One thing that could improve is the management of bug reporting. The process could be more streamlined. NIX Solutions was happy to manage bug reporting in whatever form we proposed, which was nice and flexible. However, it probably would be more effective if they proposed a method of managing bug reporting that they preferred.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The client was dissatisfied with his partnership with NIX Solutions and has since found a new Web development partner. This client was particularly dissatisfied with the quality of the work provided. The client points to routine site crashes and delayed development as key quality-related issues.

BACKGROUND

I'm the president of a company that provides a free live streaming webcam website to an audience of tens of thousands of visitors per day since 2009. The site works on a 'freemium' model whereby users can pay a fee for access to additional tools and services. Our company is based out of Canada and the United States. Our marketing and strategy head office is located in Canada, servers and hardware management in the United States. Programming and technical aspects are handled in the United States and outsourced abroad. Our target audience is 18- to  60-year-old Web surfers in the webcam entertainment market.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

The launch of Facebook in 2008 signaled a new era in ecommerce that we wanted to be a part of. We wanted to provide interactive social media via webcam streaming to replicate the social aspects of Facebook, but go another step and include live visual interaction.

SOLUTION

In 2009, we hired NIX Solutions to develop the webcam platform for us. The work appeared consistent and on schedule. However, the quality of the work provided by NIX Solutions became readily apparent, on the day the site launched to a live audience. It crashed under the initial traffic, which was no more than a few hundred visitors to the site.

We continued to grow the website while routinely dealing with site crashing, intractable bugs, delayed development, and poor support for three more years. By that time, the window of opportunity afforded by being a 'first-mover' had evaporated and our business had been leapfrogged by newer efficient copycat versions of our platform.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Since outsourcing our needs to an alternate IT [information technology] company, development has been smooth and productive. It's taken a long time to repair the damage that NIX Solutions did to our business, but we've done it. NIX Solutions compromised and undermined our business [so much] that it is only through sheer will and some luck that our business survived. We would not recommend NIX Solutions to a company seeking IT services.
