Feedback summary: 

While the work is ongoing, the current build has received positive internal feedback. OptiSol Business Solutions takes designs given to them and successfully infuses their own experience-based ideas into the product. Their team is communicative, dedicated, and creative.

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 am the director of Spotted Ltd. Our company allows supercar sponsors to engage with vehicle owners, creating connections and networking to enhance their portfolios.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OptiSol Business Solutions?

Our company is mobile app-based, but we needed someone to build the app for us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

After providing them with a rough outline, OptiSol Business Solutions built both an iOS and Android app from scratch. Their team took our designs and integrated them with their own idea on how to best build the platform. 

What is the team composition?

I first spoke to Soniya (Digital Transformation Consultant, OptiSol Business Solutions) who helped talk me through the stages of process for development and provided a timeframe. I then had a main point of contact who would liaise with the developers, graphic designers, and technical team for me. He was the core of the whole project. 

How did you come to work with OptiSol Business Solutions?

I contacted OptiSol Business Solutions based on their previous work for other clients. Their location-based applications were particularly impressive, and all of the reviews were outstanding so I chose to work with them. 

How much have you invested with them?

We have invested about £6,000 (approximately $7,300 USD)

What is the status of this engagement?

Our ongoing engagement with OptiSol Business Solutions began in May 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our work is currently ongoing, but their entire team has been efficient with the workflow. Everything they created is better than I ever imagined. 

How did OptiSol Business Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

OptiSol Business Solutions uses Pivotal Tracker, which allows me to see exactly what they’re working on or where they are in the build. We also use Hockey, which allows me to download the build and have it on my phone. Their team introduced me to InVision so I can comment on their designs.

I am managing the project, but I haven’t had to do too much because everything they have shown me has looked great. Due to the language barrier, I’ve done some of the text writing, but they’ve done an amazing job. 90% of the ideas they’ve come up with haven’t needed to be changed at all. They’re almost always spot on.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their commitment to the project is second to none. OptiSol Business Solutions consistently brings forward good ideas and hard work. Their dedication has shown through every step of the way. It allows you to put your 100% trust that your investment is going to come out great.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. It’s my first time making a mobile app but they’ve been wonderful to work with. They couldn’t improve in any way 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Go for it. You will get the product that you want with OptiSol Business Solutions. Have a vision, but be open to their ideas because they know what they’re talking about.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their team was responsive and communicated seamlessly, which is especially impressive given the time difference between us. Workflows were carefully planned and led to flawless execution. Transparency was a top priority for them, so they provided daily and weekly progress reports. These ensured objectives were clear and that we were on the same page.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Both my points of contact, as well as Optisol’s technical engineers, were extremely competent at delivering work goals. Optisol resolved issues promptly and stayed calm in the face of unforeseen challenges. They were proactive about offering valuable suggestions for improvement.

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 director of software development at a waste management company. We provide services across the United States and Canada.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OptiSol Business Solutions?

I needed a cost-effective and dedicated solutions provider for a long-term partnership.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

On an ongoing basis to supplement work from another US-based vendor, OptiSol Business Solutions provides services for web and mobile development. They’ve built an end-to-end customer service portal, which is one of our flagship products for interacting with our customer base. In addition, the team developed a custom CRM when we ran into obstacles working with Microsoft Dynamics.

Most recently, they built a mobile app for purchase orders and requisitions. The app also complements their work in the Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP space. Specifically, OptiSol Business Solutions is implementing an ERP system for Microsoft when we don’t have any vertical support for waste management in the ERP system. As a workaround, they’re building an extension on that ERP platform. Once that’s completed, we will be able to retire all of our custom applications and move them on to the ERP.

We’re trying to release at least one product every year. The portal went live three years ago, the CRM launched about 18 months ago, and mobile development finished in May 2018.

What is the team composition?

There are 25 people on the team. There’s a director who is directly involved in the project.

How did you come to work with OptiSol Business Solutions?

I found them when they were a small company. We were their first enterprise client in the United States.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $2.5–3 million.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2012 and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

OptiSol Business Solutions makes us a priority and the products reflect that dedication. Moreover, the team has quality people and their success has aligned with our success. To that end, the customer service portal became our key product and has received positive user feedback.

How did OptiSol Business Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

We have our own project manager on site. They have a very mature team, which includes functional and technical consultants that constitute a separate group. The team is accurate with scheduling estimates and delivers accordingly. OptiSol Business Solutions follows agile methodology and uses Google Tracker to manage the project. The team is dedicated and works long hours. However, there is room for improvement. More experienced project managers would have enhanced the mobile and web development projects.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team’s dedication, focus, and responsive service distinguish them from other providers. OptiSol Business Solutions hires quality people and retains them. They also go after contractors who work for big companies and employ them full-time.

Are there any areas they could improve?

As a growing company, OptiSol Business Solutions should find a mature project management methodology and better communication methods. The team could make documentation clearer, as well as engage client-side stakeholders in a better manner.

There’ve been minimal bugs and crashes throughout development, and OptiSol performed well with a new feature request. Although they could more closely follow an agile process, they instituted a smooth collaboration. Their consistent communication helps them stand out from competitors.

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 managing director of an application for iPhone and Android.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OptiSol Business Solutions?

The existing codebase had deprecated. Therefore, we needed to refactor the code and rebuild the application from scratch, essentially.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They did all of the development on this particular project—Native iOS and Android apps—from scratch. They had access to an existing repository for the deprecated code and did some iterative work to develop the new applications. It now has current libraries and refactored code. I specifically asked them to develop a recording feature where users can remove existing vocals from a song and record their own voice on top of that, but also keep the original backing track.

What is the team composition?

I believe it’s three or four, but there’s probably additional support staff I haven’t had actually have contact with. I connect through an agile project manager or agile delivery manager and occasionally have contact with developers when asking for specific things.

How did you come to work with OptiSol Business Solutions?

I had an issue with an existing Indian supplier, and it so happened that OptiSol sent me a random e-mail on the day I was screening new suppliers.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $20,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since March 2018. I’ve just done final testing on the current version and we’re going through an analysis to add some functionality before we launch in the app stores.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve had few issues as far as crashes and bugs with this particular code. They’ve done other projects for me—Android apps—where that has not been that case, but this one seems to be particularly solid. They’ve also done quite remarkably well with the stripping feature.

How did OptiSol Business Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

They could have tighter disciplines, meaning they're not as agile as I’d like.

I have a tendency to be regimented by process as opposed to thinking on my feet, but that's also a bit of a cultural issue. We usually use Slack to communicate.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Compared to other Indian developers, they’ve been fairly easy to deal with overall.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could get better at their understanding of code deployment and versioning.

I’m the founder and CEO of a mobile app startup called Wait4me. With our app, users can hire people to perform the waiting portion of daily errands such as standing in line or receiving packages. Conversely, users can also become waiters and make money in their free time.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OptiSol Business Solutions?

I approached them to design and build my app from the ground up. They were involved in solidifying my idea and translating it into a functional product.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We held several discussions to go over the concept and define the requirements, looking at the format, layout, and overall project roadmap. This allowed us to get a better sense of what did and didn’t work in terms of design. We also decided to build the first iteration of the app in iOS because it was more efficient and cheaper than starting with an Android platform and translating it later. We’re currently in beta testing and are scheduled to launch the first build soon. Once we complete the second iteration, we’ll create a corresponding Android app.

What is the team composition?

They assigned a dedicated project manager who served as my main point of contact. I also collaborated directly with three other team members.

How did you come to work with OptiSol Business Solutions?

I posted an ad on Craigslist, looking for an app designer who could help me convert my idea into an app. Many companies replied, but OptiSol Business Solutions had an impressive portfolio of well-known apps. Their contact had a pleasant demeanor, and I liked how he was able to explain the process to me in a simplified way. In terms of cost, they were about a third less than other quotes I’d received.

How much have you invested with them?

I spent just under $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Their work lasted from October 2017–May 2018 for the first build. We took longer than expected due to financing challenges on my side.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re about two weeks away from launching the app, so we don’t have any current metrics. However, the app ran smoothly in beta tests. We only had to work out a few bugs on some of the features.

How did OptiSol Business Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

I can't speak enough about how pleased I am with their process; it was seamless and efficient. Although they assigned a project manager, I was also in direct contact with the team. They involved me in every facet of the design phase and were transparent, explaining complex processes in a way that made sense.

We used a tool that allowed me to view the project’s progress in real time, make comments, and reach out to individual people. That way I could make quick adjustments and prevent the design/wording from straying too far from my vision. We also communicated via email, phone, and Skype.

In terms of timelines, they did a great job of keeping me on schedule. It can be easy to let a project drag on if you don’t feel like anything is happening. However, they pushed the app to the forefront of my radar and regularly showed me progress. I appreciated that they empowered me to understand multiple aspects of development, from design and structure to programming. They made me feel like I was in command and gave me the energy to push forward.

What did you find most impressive about them?

What stood out the most was their personalities and how much they cared about the project. Often, there can be a gap when working with people who aren’t in the office with you. It’s hard to personalize those relationships, and you can quickly just become another client, and they another vendor.

However, I really connected with OptiSol Business Solutions’ team, and we had several great conversations. Beyond development work, we also talked about cultural differences, holidays, my daughter, and how this app could benefit my family. They really took an interest in who I was as a person and wanted me to be successful.

Furthermore, I’ve had several investors express interest in my app, but my technical knowledge just wasn’t up to par. Despite the time difference, they went out of their way to speak to the investors so that I could secure more funding. They even assigned their best English speaker.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, nothing comes to mind. If I had to say something, it would be the language and cultural barriers. Some things were lost in translation, and it took a few tries to get them to understand my perspective. That being said, they made a strong effort to understand me, so I commend them.

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 am the CTO of a construction company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OptiSol?

We formerly had in-house developers, but reduced our staff because of attrition, personality issues, and budgetary concerns. We needed someone to work on our project, and decided to seek an offshore programming partner.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Using PHP and MySQL, OptiSol has worked on a website that manages many aspects of our business. They also provide business analysis to identify ways in which we could improve the software’s workflows.

What is the team composition?

My primary contact is their business analysts. I’ve also had frequent calls with their data science director and our two current developers. We’ve worked with three other developers on an as-needed basis over the collaboration. I’ve also had frequent conversations with the tech lead, who has been on the project since day one.

How did you come to work with OptiSol?

We were initially looking for contract developers, not offshore groups. Someone from OptiSol responded to our post, and we decided to try their services. Rather than just having our software needs dictated to them, they’ve been actively involved in the architecture of the platform.

How much have you invested with them?

The total cost of their services has been around $40,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our first contact with OptiSol was in April 2017. We formalized the agreement in May. They are continuing to provide new feature development and maintenance. We will likely engage the team for years to come.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I don’t have any statistics, but I do know that when we started the project, the platform was not suitable for public launch. OptiSol has brought it to where it needed to be. We could not have gotten to this point at the same cost without them.

How did OptiSol perform from a project management standpoint?

Our experience has been excellent. They’ve done a great job of managing the workflow and our expectations about when things would be delivered.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I haven’t worked with other offshore teams, so I couldn’t say if others are as good as OptiSol. I doubt that they are, though. The thing that distinguishes them in my mind is that they’re good people. I look forward to our weekly conference calls because they’re fun to talk to and understand our business.

With every call, they announce the progress they have made. Compared to the lack of progress we saw with in-house developers, it’s like night and day. I’m happy with OptiSol, and I hope that the relationship will continue like this for a long time.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I’ve painted a rosy picture of the relationship so far, and it has been good overall. It did take longer than expected to get the first deliverables from them, but they still delivered more than what we would have gotten from our in-house developers. We were still happy, but the initial challenge existed because OptiSol underestimated the complexity of our project. They promised some code earlier than they could deliver it, but the ultimate result was functional and required very few bug fixes.

We occasionally encounter some language issues, but they are not roadblocks to our progress. In general, it’s been an overwhelmingly positive experience.

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 own a company called Amazing App. We are a personal development mobile application.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OptiSol Business Solutions?

OptiSol Business Solutions helped me develop both software and a mobile app for iOS and Android.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

OptiSol Business Solutions completed the entire design, backend and frontend development for an app with a built-in affiliate program. It’s designed to help people who are interested in personal development. The team aggregated several related categories into one web tool. Users can access it online or through a mobile device, and both versions communicate with each other.

While we were launching the app, I was both running and preparing to sell another company I owned. The sales fell out twice, which limited the amount of time I could allocate to this project. During the numerous times when I fell behind in sending materials, they were always patient. It was always a simple process to request even unforeseen changes.

What is the team composition?

I worked with a few different project managers, including Roger Smith, Praveen Kumar, and Vadlamani Madhu.

How did you come to work with OptiSol Business Solutions?

Roger Smith contacted me after I posted about this project online. He was my original project manager, and might also be a sales rep. I interviewed a dozen companies, and he was better than anyone else at understanding my goals. It really felt like I was meant to work with him.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent about $25,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project started in April 2016, and we have an ongoing working relationship. They currently handle maintenance and tech support and make any required updates. We're still making changes before next month’s public launch.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Their team is incredible and did an amazing job of translating my concept into an actual working product. I don't have any financial statistics, but I doubt the app will fail. If it does, I know that wouldn't be their fault. Their work was phenomenal from every angle, including both what the user sees and the inner workings that help everything flow together.

They have a really cool fee schedule where we paid them as they hit certain milestones. Many companies want half the cost or more upfront, which requires a blind leap of faith that they'll do a good job. With OptiSol Business Solutions, you pay for performance and have a consistently transparent view of their work.

How did OptiSol Business Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

Each of our project managers was well-chosen for our project. I wasn’t in direct contact with any of the developers, which would have been challenging. They did an amazing job of both understanding exactly what I wanted, and translating requirements to the programmers. At times when I was off schedule, they were great at getting me back on track.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team is super helpful, immensely professional, and always understood my exact ideas. The payment milestones program was excellent. I appreciated how often they asked how they could help us reach our goals. If there’s ever a breach in dialogue, there are so many team members that you never feel alone.

Are there any areas they could improve?

My work with other companies involved limited resources, so a weak line of communication signaled almost certain disappointment. That's just not the case with OptiSol Business Solutions. I have no negative feedback, which is a rare thing to say about a company.

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 am the CEO of an online gym for people with specific health conditions. I manage most of the company’s strategy myself. Since I come from a technical background, I also handle a lot of the development.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OptiSol?

We were moving at a faster development pace than I could handle myself, so I started to look for extra resources. It wasn’t for a specific project, but rather our general development pipeline.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

OptiSol provides general development for my platform. The web stack is Node.js, alongside HTML5 with the Bootstrap framework. We use SQL for the backend database.

They have also worked to set up our server infrastructure, including a test server using Amazon Web Services. This has helped handle and streamline those server loads.

I always provide web designs, so they haven’t worked on those. OptiSol has interpreted those designs and developed the backend framework that supports them. They’ve also handled project management.

What is the team composition?

OptiSol provided a project manager who takes my specifications and describes them in more detail. I speak to her daily. Another member takes care of invoicing and other business details. I am also in touch with the project's lead developer.

How did you come to work with OptiSol?

I found them on PeoplePerHour.com, a U.K. freelancing site. I chose OptiSol based on their ratings and certifications on the site. They offered a good balance of price when compared to U.K. or international developers. After finding a review for their company from one of my friends, I contacted her, and she recommended them.

What is the status of this engagement?

I started working with OptiSol 18 months ago. The collaboration has been flexible; I used them when I needed to use them. One large project, for a specific piece of functionality, extended to 12 weeks. After that, I no longer needed support, and we certainly didn’t have the money to outsource for quite a while.

I have asked OptiSol to complete little pieces of development since then. I’m currently recruiting them for a monthlong project, and we have a 10-month project coming up. I will be engaging with them for most of 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The tasks I’ve given OptiSol are based on our business decisions about which functionalities need to be developed. Our three-month-long piece of development failed as a feature, so we need to iterate on it. This is in no way their fault, though.

Our internal team consists of three people, and the other two are non-technical. They don't have any input on the quality of work, but they have enjoyed the fact that we can speed up the development process.

How did OptiSol perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve surprised me by performing very well in this sense. OptiSol has been flexible about workflow, but they also suggested using the Pivotal Tracker platform. I’ve adapted it to work for me, given that I am a developer who needs a lot of input on testing results. They’ve endeavored to put a good system in place.

We tried to have weekly meetings, but I didn’t feel that was necessary. We did overrun timelines in certain weeks, based on what we thought we could achieve, but I wasn’t charged for the extra time.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re easy to contact and accessible at any hour of the day, despite our time zone differences. I can always get a quick answer from them, and they fix any critical bugs fast.

They don’t work on a time basis so much as they work on projects. If a feature is quoted as taking a week, OptiSol won’t overcharge me if it takes two. They work to complete the project and the features they promised. I was never asked for extra money.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Toward the end of the project, there was a point when I felt that their development work wasn’t as good as it had been in the beginning. I should have managed it better, but I believe that a different developer was assigned to the project. Keeping in touch with the client about changes in the team would be useful for managing the quality. I’ve been happy working with them, and continue to be satisfied.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of Stars Branding Network, a social networking platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OptiSol?

We wanted an app developer.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed the entire platform for web, Android, and iOS. They’ve done a great job with our streaming services and our payment gateway.

What is the team composition?

We have a team of about 12 people. We communicate directly with an iOS development lead, a team member who collects information and translates it for the developers to code, and a project manager.

How did you come to work with OptiSol?

I found them through the internet and some reviews. I contacted about 10 developers and companies in the U.S. and abroad. They were professional and really quick to answer my questions, which got me excited and motivated to move forward with them. They built a working platform for me within about six days, which was very impressive.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent over $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together about a year and a half ago, around September 2016. We’re still working with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s an innovative platform. We started with nothing and are now up to 800 users and growing. We start advertisements and a TV campaign next month ahead of our full launch on March 1, 2018. So far all our users came to us through word of mouth during our beta testing.

How did OptiSol perform from a project management standpoint?

They're doing an A+ job. We use a number of tools, including InVision, Pivotal Tracker, Skype, and the app itself. We also communicate through phone and email, and we have a free conference call service we use. We can contact them at any time, either in off hours or during the business day.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The main thing is their communication. They’re very well organized when gathering information, even more organized than we were, and they gave us what we asked for.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Our experience is pretty flawless. We didn't really have any issues with them at all.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the head of technology for an information technology company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OptiSol Business Solutions.

We wanted to create a mobile app as a side-project but didn’t have the time for it.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had a business idea and provided them with a specification of the app we wanted in very simple words, not a technical specification. We went to them and asked them if they could build such an app, and if so how they would work technically.

They developed a fitness application, but for house exercises with video. The user could start a video and do the exercises, and the video would pause during that time and then resume afterwards. They developed the framework in Ionic and the backend in Firebase. One of the main technical challenges was that it had a lot of synchronizations.

What is the team dynamic?

We had a project manager who we mainly worked with, but they’ve got quite a large team.

How did you come to work with OptiSol Business Solutions?

I found them on an Ionic forum where they had posted for another project. I contacted them and liked the small size of the company, and particularly liked the references that they provided.

How much have you invested with them?

Around $2,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in October 2015, and the project was completed in January 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They developed the app in accordance with the original specification I had sent them and the functionality was great. It was a super small project.

How did OptiSol Business Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

They did very well. We used Pivotal Tracker and Skype for communication on a regular basis.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are very friendly, and apart from that, they have a large team and I have a feeling they have plenty of resources in the background.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Sometimes, the Skype connection could have been a bit better. Otherwise, I was very satisfied with them.
