iHomie

Cooperation between the building manager and members of the community is very difficult these days. The relationship in the community is weaker and weaker and this is a pretty large problem. When the manager needs to discuss an important topic about the community, no one has time to gather the community.

Our goal was to bring together all members of the community. Neighbors with the property manager and a neighbor with a neighbor. We wanted to tailor the product to today's lifestyle of community members.

Mobile application and web panel has become our solution to problems within the community. The application had a news feed which is a simple and fast way to help to communicate members of the community. The additional value, the application is also the possibility of booking a laundry, because how it came out during the workshops is also a problem that is worth solving.

Feedback summary: 

The platform rapidly gained users and several added further services after beginning to use it. The team responded quickly to any required updates and the development itself was high quality and without bugs. They communicated well and worked in effective sprints.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CTO at Switch DXB. We’re a health, fitness, and well-being platform. It’s a marketplace that aggregates several different health, well-being, and fitness providers across the city of Dubai.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with nomtek?

We wanted to build our first mobile platform from scratch.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We spent the first two months not developing any type of tool. There was a lot of business planning and defining of the product, the roadmap, the productization of features, and the best approach. At the forefront was the process of making sure that at every stage we were learning something.

Then they built the backend infrastructure, the data architecture, the user flows, and the processes. There are two iOS apps and a web portal. The most complicated component of the application is the provider availability management and pricing. It gives the merchant the control to be able to set their own schedules, their own timing, their own pricing, their own bundles, and their own promotions.

Another key component of the app is based on video content. They’re very conscious of the importance of building trust with users. They integrated video throughout the user experience in an intuitive and responsive way.

What is the team composition?

There were two backend Ruby on Rails developers, two iOS developers, two QA resources, one UI resource, one UX resource, one user research member, and a project manager.

How did you come to work with nomtek?

I found them through Clutch. We benchmarked five different countries, each with several providers. We went through a stringent process. From the outset, we recognized nomtek’s deep understanding of tech businesses. Their approach was very collaborative, structured, and business driven.

How much have you invested with them?

$300,000–$400,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from August 2017 until February 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

In our third week, we recorded 150 users, which is a good sign. We had three merchants who initially only added some services, then soon after added all their services within just the short time they’ve been using the platform.

Things are updated within a day. We’ve only had a few tiny issues where things weren’t working 100%, but overall it was bug-free. The QA was done very well.

How did nomtek perform from a project management standpoint?

We valued the project management from the start. We’re really big believers in continuous emphasis on collaboration and have a continuous chain of communication. We visited their offices several times in the past six months and they’ve been here twice. We have daily and weekly sprint calls and planning calls. They have a dedicated project manager who keeps us updated. There are multiple platforms that keep us organized, including Jira and Slack. It’s all very well structured.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They know what it takes to build really successful projects. They hire the best people.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could try things a lot quicker. Their processes are structured and sometimes that doesn’t enable the best level of experimentation.

Feedback summary: 

Since they handle every development stage, nomtek is able to seamlessly coordinate the process and bring their own creativity. The agency also impresses with their capable project management, personable communication style, and obvious commitment to the project's success. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm one of the co-founders at a small startup focused on building a safe global community for creators of all ages. Our platform is the perfect space for children, families, and teachers to save, share, discover, and interact with multimedia creativity portfolios. It lets anyone share their experiences and creations safely in more than 50 countries, whether they are at home, school, an event or activity.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with nomtek?

We started out with a web-based application that was accessible on desktop PCs and mobile devices. At a certain point in our growth, we realized that having proper native applications was key, and we reached out to nomtek to help us on that.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

nomtek took the lead on the development of our native iOS and Android applications. We provided the specs and visual assets, and they implemented it in Swift for iOS and Kotlin for Android. We leveraged their QA team to test the applications throughout the development and release process. At certain stages throughout the project we also relied on their design team.

What is the team composition?

The team structure has been changing over time, depending on the delivery schedules. On average we had about three people working on the iOS side and about two people on the Android side. We also had one test engineer and one designer involved.

How did you come to work with nomtek?

I got to know nomtek through a previous project I was involved in, about seven or eight years ago. We reached out to them, got to know them, and got started.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in October 2014 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’ve been implementing according to specs, and have been very proactive in bringing new ideas and improvements to the design and development process. It’s been variably interactive, and we’ve always received good input and feedback along the way.

How did nomtek perform from a project management standpoint?

Their lead developers have done an excellent job of coordinating the development process. They even coordinate with our customers and partners to manage the release process.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They help with every stage, from ideation to planning, design, and development, through quality assurance and release. They’re a wonderful one-stop solution. They have been showing engagement and take pride in their work.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There are always things in life that can be improved upon but overall the nomtek team has been doing an excellent job. We are happy with what they’ve done for us so far and freely recommend them to other people.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

From the start, the nomtek team establishes trust. Even though we have been working with them in a remote setting, they’ve always been available, also for face to face meetings with their whole team. They’re very caring and friendly, so connect with them and discuss everything that needs to be discussed.

Feedback summary: 

nomtek impresses with their high level of engagement and their easygoing style. When additional resources are required, they easily scale up to get the work done. And, when they see opportunities for process improvement, they aren’t shy about suggesting them.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-founder of iHomie. We’re trying to create social networks for apartment buildings and privately-owned buildings here in Sweden. We’re trying to set up an app and a website for scheduling laundry, having an internal alarm in the house through a supplier, and a small sharing economy so neighbors can help each other out with different things.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with nomtek?

I’ve worked with service providers before, but I’ve never been on the technical side. I felt hesitant hiring someone because I didn’t want to get in a situation where it’s not a good fit and the project stops.

We needed help drawing a roadmap for the project and leading the team. I wanted someone who could build our website and mobile app without me having to be too involved. I wanted to be able to trust them to do nice work and get clients.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We started off with a workshop to draw up the technical roadmap and to find the smallest scope we could to get started. They were consultants to us in that sense. I had a very broad scope in mind, but they helped me to narrow it down. Then, they found a team and a platform to build it on. They’ve been 100% involved in everything. They provided us with our website and the app. The iOS app was built in Firebase because I didn’t want to spend too much in the beginning. We are going to build Android at a later time.

We have laundry scheduling. What was most important to us was the alarm feature in order to get our funding. Neighbors can alarm each other when something happens in the building. It’s not going to sound like an alarm; it’s a push notification We have got state grants for the alarm, so it was a key feature for us. They’re also helping us to record the users and measure their engagement.

What is the team composition?

When we are in a time crunch, there are more people. We generally have four to five people on the project.

How did you come to work with nomtek?

I found them through a firm here in Stockholm. Based on what I told them, they recommended nomtek.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent €120,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

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

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’ve made the first delivery, but they’re working on a couple of changes and improvements. I wanted them to launch a first version before it was completely finished. We launched in the first buildings and we’ll have the beta users testing it soon. We have positive feedback, but it’s only 10 users.

The quality is good. They do a lot of testing internally. They worked out most of our bugs so far. I don’t believe it’s crashed at all. They’ve been very good and very easy to do business with.

How did nomtek perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very involved. Their COO is involved as well. I love working with them. We pay half of what we’d pay here in Stockholm. They perform more and are very engaged in the project. When we need to scale up the team, they’ve managed to do so instantly. They’re a great team and have great team management. They have their own video conference platform that we use.

What did you find most impressive about them?

When there is an issue in communications or expectations, they’re so good to work with. We work things out easily, and I’ve never worked with a company like that before. They’re amazing; I have only good things to say about them. They’re very engaged in the project. If I tell them what I want to build and they see a way to do it in a less time-consuming manner, they will point that out and guide us through the process. They’re remarkable.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could improve a little bit on the graphic design part. It’s because we are in different countries and have different styles. It’s small fixes.

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are building a C2C and B2C marketplace for secondhand items, either used or in like-new condition. We don’t allow merchants to sell new items on the platform. We started the marketplace in Germany approximately four months ago and have seen significant traction so far. We plan to expand to the rest of Europe over the next 2­–3 years. We make things easier through focus on the fastest possible match-making between buyers and sellers and excellent underlying logistics. I’m the CEO and was responsible for hiring nomtek.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with nomtek?

Our challenge was to bring our products to life (especially mobile apps) and iteratively validate our value proposition by looking closely at what users say to us and applying this to our business model.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

nomtek built both our native Android and iOS apps. They also helped us with design and process issues. The project involved the collaboration on product design and the actual development of iOS and Android apps. The apps are released now but we continue to cooperate on adding new features and responding to users’ feedback. The services provided were iOS development, Android development, QA, project management, UI/UX consultation, UX research consultation, and backend development consultation.

How did you come to work with nomtek?

We narrowed down a list of 10 European developers and chose nomtek because we were impressed with the meeting. They came to Berlin from Poland and impressed us from the first meeting.

How much have you invested with nomtek?

The cost was more than 100,000 EUR.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with nomtek early in 2017. One significant milestone was the first release of iOS and Android apps but the project is still ongoing. The first version was an MVP release, and we have many additional projects in the backlog. We will continue working on them with nomtek.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

These guys truly put your product success on the top of their daily agenda. Their energy in making the most of your product’s value is unmatched. They are more than a reliable development partner; they are solid people you can trust with your product at stake. Everything in the project went great.

How did nomtek perform from a project management standpoint?

In the beginning, we used to meet with nomtek every two weeks and traveled to their office by car, which is one hour away from Berlin. We reviewed each two-week sprint and had a project manager who was responsible for the overall development. He talked directly with my CTO.

Are there any areas nomtek could improve?

I have no improvements to suggest.

Feedback summary: 

The final product was compatible with a web-based system, which has greatly helped functionality. Nomtek delivered great work on the coding and product development and demonstrated good project management overall. 

BACKGROUND

We provide software solutions for educational institutions. Our mission is to enhance learning processes and development of national education programs through IT [information technology]. I am the CTO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

I was looking for a professional company to help me develop the mobile application, which was a crucial addition to the business model of our company.

With that in mind, I was not only looking for technical expertise, but also guidance in optimizing the product's feature set and increasing the chances of it playing a significant role on the market. 

SOLUTION

There were several companies that were pre-selected for the project. nomtek was picked out of those as the one that was most promising to fulfill our needs from both the technical and business angle. They provide mobile app development and design from the ground up.

The application we were working on with nomtek was targeting primary and secondary school teachers and offering them a tool for managing all classroom related activities, such as giving marks, checking attendance, and providing periodic student assessment.

The application was compatible with web-based system, which is our core business and served as a handy addition allowing teachers to update and check data in real time on their phone. The project was launched in August 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

They have a very elaborate and tidy process that we have found very easy to adapt to. There is nothing that I can think to improve. Overall, we were pleased by the collaboration. I would give them high marks for every factor. nomtek's team delivered much more than I expected both in coding and in product development.

Feedback summary: 

Nomtek has an experienced team with a proactive approach and good project management. The team was willing to give advice and created a positive and communicative working relationship. 

BACKGROUND

Could you please describe your company and the role that you play there?

We are the Institute of Food Research, which is a nonprofit company dedicated to conducting general food research, as well as eating habits, in the U.K. and internationally. I play the role of consultant and research partner at IFR.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

Our general goal is to study the eating habits in U.K. A part of the process to reach that goal was focused on children. We needed a tool that would serve as a conduit between the nutritionist and patient, transferring information between the two parties and keeping log of the diet at the same time for research purposes.

It was an app that would keep a diet register for the patient, means of altering that register for the nutritionist, and a log of the whole procedure for us.

SOLUTION

What was your process for selecting nomtek?

I started with Web search that brought me to the Sourcing Line website when I looked for top European app development companies. nomtek was chosen because of seniority of the team, proactive approach in discussing the project scope, and well-codified development process

Can you talk about the scope of the project?

The task was to design and implement a mobile app with the following functional components: a server-side solution, complete user accounts, a database containing consumable products, and an access panel and dashboard for both the patient and the nutritionist.

What were the exact services or methodologies nomtek provided or implemented?  

nomtek provided the design and programming services as well as consultation regarding the usability of our application.

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

That information is classified.

When was the project completed?

It ended in February 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What distinguishes nomtek from other providers?

nomtek serves as a guide when it comes to developing apps, throwing around ideas and suggestions seems to be daily bread for them. You really feel they are not just working for you, but with you.

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

None.

Feedback summary: 

Nomtek did a great job on a technically complicated app. The team was flexible and adjusted to changes quickly. They provided both a positive work environment and communication as well as a well-functioning app.

BACKGROUND

We are a historic barbell company that manufactures top of the line equipment for professional weightlifting, powerlifting, and other types of functional strength training. Our mission is to provide the world’s best lifting equipment and education. My title is Project Leader–New Business Development and I am responsible for completion of new initiatives to support the company and lifter sport in general.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

We wanted to create a user friendly and reliable form check tool for weightlifters.

SOLUTION

Our goal was an app that could help weightlifters improve their technique, by watching tutorials, but also getting immediate feedback through a split-screen video function. We sources 20-plus developers worldwide based on a good track record and good reviews. There were many good choices, but we felt an immediate connection with the enthusiastic and intelligent developer we spoke to from nomtek. The developer got back in touch with us unprompted 24 hours after our conversation, with a proof of concept for the most challenging app feature. We felt nomtek was a company with both integrity and competence we could trust.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

We are very satisfied with both a great working relationship and a great app. The project was technically complicated and our spec was developed in an agile manner, demanding a lot of flexibility from the developer. If we could give future nomtek clients any advice it would be to have as clear a picture as you can, ask questions and raise concerns early, and trust in your working relationship.

Feedback summary: 

There were no delays or other complications in the project, with great communication throughout. Nomtek clearly understood the goals and the team was flexible in terms of following instructions or taking the lead, making them an invaluable resource.

BACKGROUND

I work for a software-as-a-service firm based in Helsinki, Finland, with offices in San Francisco, Calif., and Warsaw, Poland. We are still in the startup phase with about 50 employees. We offer a unique cloud service for mobile game and app developers with 500 real devices in the cloud for optimizing, debugging, and testing.

I am the CEO and responsible for general management of the firm.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

Our client wanted to create a resource exchange system for companies from the metallurgic industry. We contracted nomtek for this week to deliver to our end client.

SOLUTION

We needed them to provide development resources using the agile SCRUM methodology. We worked in sprints. We selected J2EE for the back-end system because we needed a stable and safe solution. This system catered to our business needs while being scalable enough for future improvements. 

We cooperate with nomtek on various levels and share a history with their CEO. It was only natural to choose a company that we know personally. nomtek assisted us in developing the back-end and front-end part of our system as well as consulted us on design from a user-experience perspective.

The cost of the project is confidential, we completed in the second quarter of 2014.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

The whole project was completed as arranged. No delays or any other complications. They are very communicative and involve their client in the process. We were able to take an active role whenever we chose to or leave everything to them if we wanted them to drive the projects. They are professionals to the bone. 

I don’t think any improvements are necessary. The scope was clearly understood and the project flow was transparent. We got exactly what we wanted.

Feedback summary: 

Nomtek made suggestions to improve app functionality and created a solid initial product. The team has great communication and is flexible in terms of changes in management style and adjustment to specific communication needs.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company.

We are an on-demand recipe building kit service that’s live in Germany. Our product is a website, an iPhone app, and a production center where we prepare the boxes to send the ingredients and recipe cards out to people.

What is your role and responsibilities?

I’m the owner.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal for working with Nomtek?

We wanted to launch an iPhone app simultaneously with our website. The goal was expressively to have our product inside people’s pockets, [such as] on their phone. 

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

I had prepared everything for the design, we had all the wireframes ready, and we had all the flows ready. I had most of the user specs ready, and then I went to Poland and spent a few days with the team that was going to take the project on, to go through the flows again.

We had to create new stores of things that we’d missed, and talked about corner cases and fallbacks, and stuff like that. So, they just did the development. They did give some little recommendations on some usability issues also, they had some good ideas. Halfway through we had a change, and there were some problems arising from that, and there was a collaborative user experience issue that we had to address.

What was your process for selecting Nomtek with which to work?

I knew Nomtek already. I was in a company five years ago, and we were one of their first clients. Then they were recommended to us by another contact we know, who is kind of a middleman between technical companies in Berlin and Poland. Since then, I’d always been in monthly correspondence with their CEO, Krzysztof [Choma]. When this project came up, they were one of the first firms I spoke to.

Can you provide a ballpark dollar figure for the size of the work that they’ve done for you?

I’d say about 500 hours by now. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What were the results of the project?

The work is still ongoing. You know, nothing’s completed in my world, but we’ve actually hired our own person in-house, and she’s starting on November 1, [2014]. So now, they’re just preparing the next build, and then we do a handover where we’ll be sending the iOS developer to Poland to work with them for a week, and then that’s pretty much it for now. You never know what will happen with our startup, there might be a new project needed.

I’m very satisfied with their performance. They’re right up to par with any other developers I’ve worked with.

Do you have any statistics or metrics to track improvement from the project?

We can’t disclose that information. As far as general feedback, we’re happy with the end product. We only launched about six weeks ago. We haven’t found the right channels yet, so we’re testing a lot. With a new product, a new concept, you need some time to get some traction.

We’re not getting really good feedback from people, but we’re not getting bad feedback from the users. In general, the app is good and is well-thought through for a first release. We’re happy with it.

Is there anything unique about them that really makes them stand out, compared to other companies?

They have good communication. I think that even the process within the company, they’re not so dogmatic like some companies who say that they have to use this process, and they have to use Scrum. Whatever makes the project work, they’ll do it.

If there’s something that needs to be discussed on a high level, the CEO is always available to take calls or respond by email. They’re good developers, and they also have multiple levels, from junior up to the very experienced senior managers. They have a lot of knowledge sharing and collaboration within their team. They’re extremely good at communication. For companies looking to outsource work, this is one of the main elements that you need.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or something that you might do differently?

In general, outsourced developers just think of the corner cases and focus on what’s ahead as opposed to focusing on what’s happening now, but that’s not a Nomtek issue whatsoever. That’s just an issue with a lot of people working in this business. Some developers offshore who are a bit more junior tend to over-complicate things.

Feedback summary: 

The team delivered solutions that were end-goal oriented and had efficient project management. Nomtek offered both quality and speed on their work while demonstrating professionalism and communication. 

BACKGROUND

We are one of the biggest online media companies in Poland. We have more than 500 employees and are based in Krakow. We also own sites for blogging, online dating, video sharing, and business services. We also run market-leading sites in Poland for sports, news, weather, automobiles, and business.

I am the project manager for the mobile app project with Nomtek. I am responsible for development, business strategy, and launching our mobile applications. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

We wanted to simplify the development process by hiring a professional firm that were experts in mobile app development and design. Our goal was to create a beautiful, user-friendly and simple weather application. We wanted to have at least a four-star rating in the App Store.

SOLUTION

The project included graphic work and UX/UI [user experience/user interface] design by Nomtek. The final stage was development, which they also handled. They still provide ongoing development support when needed. We used the Agile and SCRUM development models. 

We asked Nomtek to create a native application for iOS and Android so Java and Objective-C were used as programming languages. We decided to go native because we wanted to achieve a natural look and feel for both platforms. Nomtek was responsible for the whole project scope, [including] native mobile implementation, UI/UX design, and graphics design, except for the backend part, which was done in-house.

We initially met during the Apps World conference in London [in 2012]. To assess their expertise, Nomtek was asked to prepare several quotes for other projects before we started cooperation.

We focused on quality, industry knowledge, client references, portfolio and their approach before engaging. Nomtek displays the ability to deliver on expectations. They excel with the speed and quality of their work.

The application went live on the Apple App Store at the end of March of 2014 and on Google Play in June of 2014. The cost is confidential. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

The application received a 4.5 out of 5 from more than 150 users. Everything during the project was successful. 

Nomtek is unique at focusing on delivering solutions that truly matched our expectations. They were very proactive in managing the functional scope to reach optimal efficiency on the visual and business logic side. We felt the project was safe in their hands at all times. We also value the communication skills of the Nomtek team. They were always responsive and professional in every aspect.

We truly believe that we were offered the top quality service so I cannot think of any areas that may need some improvement.
