OKKO Image

OKKO

OTAKOYI developed a corporate website for one of Ukraine’s most prominent companies — OKKO. The client already had a valid website, but it stopped meeting their business goals, as it looked fairly outdated. Therefore, the purpose of this project was to update and upgrade the corporate site following the new style of OKKO, thus strengthening the client's position on the market.

OTAKOYI managed to realize the ideas and

desires of our client and created a product that perfectly matched their expectations. Our team has taken into account all of the drawbacks that were on the client's old website and found effective ways of overcoming them. As a result, the website turned out to be quite innovative, aesthetic, and as user-friendly as possible.

OTAKOYI team succeeded in developing an innovative and high-quality website that corresponds to the OKKO brand’s image.

multifunctionality for a number of users, including seniors and people with disabilities, their guardians, and support workers.

CHEPELOS

A referral website where you can find reputable businesses right in your own neighborhood. 

Chepelos is a project that takes word-of-mouth marketing to a completely new level. Citizens start sharing the best deals in town and get rewarded for making referrals. The idea is simple - you recommend business - you get cashback and rewards.

OTAKOYI created a system intended for two types of users - business owners and

customers. A business representative creates a company profile, builds a referral campaign (deciding when, how, and how much to reward the customers for their purchases, and advocates for their referrals), and goes through the rewards distribution process. Chepelos receives payment only after a customer makes a purchase. It means that a company pays for sales (not clicks or views or monthly fees).

As a consumer, a user can shop locally (looking for what is needed close to home), refer the businesses he trusts so others can also get great deals and experiences, and receive real cash when shopping locally and making referrals.

The created easy-to-use dashboard helps users to keep track of all current and previous campaigns and referrals. No more record-keeping is needed.

platform allowing users to follow the latest blockchain tendencies and compare cryptocurrency rates. 

Taking into account all the presented requirements and preferences, OTAKOYI developed a complex system that makes the process of cryptocurrency-related operations much easier. A registered user is given an opportunity to keep track of fund allocation, valid currency rates, token distribution, transaction and deal history. CryptoMap platform provides its users with up-to-date blockchain information and useful hints gathered from reliable Internet sources.

This online training service can be used extensively by both riders and

coaches. What makes TrainMeDo a useful tool for riders is that they can get trained at their home barn with any trainer no matter what is the distance between them. It saves a lot of time and energy on travelling but still gives much better progress than self-taught riding.

Feedback summary: 

OTAKOYI delivered a functional platform on time to support a successful launch. The team was not only communicative but also accessible, mitigating oversight and enabling seamless collaboration. They provided feedback and cost-effective recommendations, which enables an ongoing partnership.  

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 founder of WikiHero. We’re a startup.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OTAKOYI?

I have a design background but didn’t a technical founder. I needed a partner to execute my vision.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

While I created initial designs, we started the engagement with business analysis. We had a round when we established the project’s requirements. Their team then managed the whole project including the development and the QA process. They built a responsive web app.

What is the team composition?

At the beginning of the project, I worked with an account manager and a business analyst to work out the scope. During the project, I worked with a project manager and three developers behind them.

How did you come to work with OTAKOYI?

One of the reasons that I decided to engage OTAKOYI was Clutch. I read reviews and searched many websites of development agencies in Ukraine. Their reviews on Clutch were the most trustworthy, so that’s why I decided to contact them. I looked at their past projects and thought that it was worth a try.

How much have you invested with them?

So far, we’ve spent about $20,000 on the project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We officially started the project in March 2020, and our partnership’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We delivered on time at the right cost. They weren’t the cheapest option, but they were within the range. It’s a pleasure to work with them. When we met or reviewed features, it was an easy experience. We have a good relationship

We launched the website, and it works perfectly. We only had minor bugs, so it wasn’t a hassle to review the whole website.

How did OTAKOYI perform from a project management standpoint?

We had a Slack channel, which allowed for ongoing communication. Once every two weeks, we had a call to review sprints. We also had other calls as needed. While their team was fairly autonomous, I was in touch with their project manager who kept me in the loop. We also used GitLab where I interacted with the team and answered questions.

They kept their deadlines. There was maybe a difference of 1–2 weeks, which is quite good for development. It was a smooth process.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They made the engagement enjoyable. Their team didn’t just want to make the product; they were transparent and helpful along the way. Their team proposed solutions and wanted to improve my idea. For example, there were a few cases when the designs didn’t fit the technical solution. Their team was independent enough to propose a solution that didn’t add another bundle of costs.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s always room for improvement. There was one case when I asked for a search feature that could be hard to complete correctly. I said that we needed to test the feature, but they reassured me that there wouldn’t be problems. When we shipped, it wasn’t adapted to help people search. Their team needed more context and time.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It would be helpful to lay down all the details with them. I had a clear vision of what I wanted, which could be helpful to them.

We needed additional full stack and design resources for several projects we got around the same time.

We specified our requirements for the type of resources we needed, such as having a good set of soft skills.

They sometimes speak directly with clients as well as with our internal team.

What is the team composition?

How did you come to work with OTAKOYI?

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

They had people available and built the team for us really fast. We have had a smooth cooperation. It’s a good feeling that they have our back. They’re experts at what they do. Our clients are happy, as are our engineers. They bring good value.

How did OTAKOYI perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management is good. They have good communication skills. We talk every week, and they have ongoing communication with the team. They use Jira to manage the tasks and bugs. Their management takes time to communicate and ask what’s going on. They have feedback sessions from time to time.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re honest and passionate about what they’re working with. They try to understand the project from the inside. They bring ideas on the fly, which helps a lot as well. They’re a great company to work with.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Everything is good so far. They perform well. They exceeded our expectations of coordinating the team.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Give them the project specifics and explain your ideas to them. They really want to lead the project. Give them a bit more information so you can expect more engagement. Sometimes, they bring really great ideas on how to implement things.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a software company that develops video apps for the automotive and real estate market.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire OTAKOYI?

We needed to revamp our customer invoicing system for our resellers. We were also looking for a couple of full time backend php developers for on-going projects and system support.

What were your goals for this project?

To completely revamp the customer invoicing system that we currently have and to have strong reliably team of developers to do additional projects and system support once OTAKOYI proved they were able to finish the invoicing project in time and within budget.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We went through YouTeam, an online outsourcing portal. We interviewed several companies and selected OTAKOYI after interviewing the developers that they were gonna provide for our project.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Our resellers use our app to capture videos automotive dealers and need to have an easy way to bill the dealers for their work. Our invoicing system allows them to easily create an invoice directly from our app and send it to the dealer after completing the job while they are onsite. OTAKOYI was hired to help us completely overhaul the invoicing system to make it more robust and more user friendly.

What was the team composition?

A project manager and two full developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our users, esp. the resellers using our app to capture video and then be able to bill their customers from the app has increased the adoption of additional resellers using the app for their invoicing needs. In addition, this new invoicing system has led to higher retention due to higher usage and better integration.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We have a project management call twice a week to review the tasks assigned to the developers. Each task is assigned a deadline for completion. The project is well organized and has therefore resulted in timely completion of the projects and within budget.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We've been very impressed by OTAKOYI. Their developers have been top notch so far. They are very knowledgeable and very technically proficient. In addition, unlike other development firms we've worked with, these developers think outside the box.

They make recommendations that we haven't thought about. On top of everything, having interacted with management we feel we can trust OTAKOYI as a company. We are looking forward to working with them for a long time to come as a trusted development firm for all our development needs.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We've thoroughly enjoyed working with OTAKOYI so far and have no complaints. The only one small issue is the time difference which makes it difficult to collaborate more closely.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CEO of Ikedayama LLC.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire OTAKOYI?

We needed an efficient two-way flow of information between listed companies and investors, including both institutional and individual investors. So we were looking for someone with solid technical expertise to help us come up with a digital idea and its realization.

What were your goals for this project?

We decided to develop a progressive web application (PWA) - an app that works both on desktops and various mobile devices.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I was searching for Ukrainian outsourcing companies and my choice fell on OTAKOYI. I filled the contact application and got a response shortly after.

Describe the project in detail.

OTAKOYI covered everything connected with frontend and backend programming, as well as Development Operations and the app’s design. Besides, they consulted us as the development proceeded, sharing their professional experience and vision.

What was the team composition?

Currently, the full team consists of four people: one front-end developer and one back-end developer, a DevOps engineer, and a Project Manager. Previously, OTAKOYI also gave us their designer for some period of time.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The issue of mobility and accessibility was a bottleneck for our business growth, and the OTAKOYI team came up with an effective solution. We received an app that offers our clients quick and easy access to all necessary information related to their funds.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We communicated via Slack and conducted calls once a week all along the development process. They never missed a milestone deadline without a valid reason and seemed to be highly organized and systematic when working.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The optimal price-quality ratio of services. We definitely got more bang for our buck. I like that they firmly adhere to our requirements while remaining flexible to changes from the initial instructions. They have a quick wit when something has to be improved.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The whole process could be faster. Though speed wasn’t our top priority, I think that if they broaden their talent pool and allocate more experts to projects, then their company and partners will only benefit.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CTO of software development, and outsourcing company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire OTAKOYI?

OTAKOYI supports us in design and development enterprises on a regular basis. We have already delivered several projects in a range of industries, such as healthcare, fintech, agriculture, etc.

What were your goals for this project?

We were looking for a reliable partner to delegate some scope of the development work on a regular basis thus work with high-quality software engineers at a reasonable cost.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

OTAKOYI was recommended to us and after checking the company background and portfolio, we decided to initiate a partnership.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

OTAKOYI covers the development needs for which we have no resources inhouse. Those typically include UI/UX design, front-end and back-end development (applying React, Angular, Vue, Laravel, Node.js technologies).

They also provide consultations on full-cycle development projects applying their experience of business analysis and evaluation process. As a result, we manage to build a software development team possessing wide experience and various academic backgrounds.

What was the team composition?

We work directly with the sales and management departments as well as with the designers and developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

This team is creating high-quality code equal to the best of the developers we’ve worked within the United States and Europe. In general, OTAKOYI delivers good results at a great price.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We have communicated with the sales managers and several project managers so far. We interact with them on a regular basis to ensure the employees are satisfied with the level of engagement. They are good at Agile development and there are no troubles with outlining and completing milestones.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They all have a strong technical background, even the junior developers. Their senior software engineers are skillful and can predict the possible risks. Moreover, the OTAKOYI team always testifies its statements by providing strong evidence and work logic following flexible business-oriented practices.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I suppose they can broaden their technical expertise by employing more developers with varied professional backgrounds and knowledge in order to cover more requests.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OTAKOYI?

We wanted to build a new website and create new designs for our white papers.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They focused on frontend development for our new site. Since they created our white paper designs, we’ve also leaned on them to design and create banner ads for our site. It’s very easy to go to them to ask questions or for other design projects.

What is the team composition?

We communicated directly with a project manager who had a team of 5–8 people.

How did you come to work with OTAKOYI?

We’ve been working together for so long—I think someone recommended them to me.

Everybody thinks the website looks great. OTAKOYI always listens to our requests and delivers what we need. We’re always happy with the designs, both aesthetically and technically.

How did OTAKOYI perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re always very responsive and stick to deadlines. They can’t give you a brand-new design overnight because good work takes time and they deliver good work. Their communication is always clear, and we normally contact them via email. However, they’re willing to use whatever platform is most convenient for the client.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They balance price, responsiveness, and quality very well. For anyone who has a modest budget and a realistic timeframe, they’ll deliver a quality product.  

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their concepts follow what we request very closely, but they could come up with a few crazier, more unique ideas once in a while.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be clear in your instructions because it will help them deliver a better result in a timely manner.

Feedback summary: 

OTAKOYI has played a substantial role in growing the packaging company’s system, both in Ukraine and Poland. Unlike other developers, OTAKOYI doesn’t resort to pushing what they know; instead, they remain open to new projects and ways of working. The team is flexible and accommodating.

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 IT manager at Dunapak, a B2B packaging company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OTAKOYI?

I needed help with development so that our customers could find all of their information about online purchases.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

OTAKOYI carefully listened to what we needed, and they developed a web app for our customers from scratch. They use their own engine that they developed by themselves. 

The latest project was this year, during which we started implementing IoT devices. They’re developing a dashboard, which hasn’t been done in the Ukrainian market. They did this from the beginning. The product is for predictive maintenance inside of our company.

What is the team composition?

There are eight people. For each project, there’s a project manager from their side.

How did you come to work with OTAKOYI?

We did a Google search and a market investigation of who was available in the market. We gave different companies our technical requirements. They passed through the tender we had. 

In Ukraine, it’s a bit complicated to ask a developer not to push what they know, but to find something new. We discovered that OTAKOYI could cooperate in this way. We’re glad that we found them. They’re a flexible and customer-oriented solution provider.

How much have you invested with them?

My company has spent $50,000–$100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2014, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We had a rollout of this project in Poland, and our client is starting to use this solution for their customers. We just made a copy of the existing environments and adapted it to our Poland plan. On the Ukrainian side of the market, we have more than 1,000 customers in this system. The system is growing.

How did OTAKOYI perform from a project management standpoint?

Everything is good. I have two different project managers who I can easily speak with, and they deliver necessary information to the technicians. When I ask the project manager to do something, they’ll try to find time that day or the next. This hasn’t been my experience with most other companies. OTAKOYI is really flexible, and I’m really thankful for this service. We communicate via Skype, Webex, or TeamViewer.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have good quality service.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We started from the beginning with the IoT project, and they didn’t have knowledge about market streams. I’d like them to develop themselves in areas other than main web development.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They’re customer-oriented. I recommend contacting them.

Their project management style was very good. In the beginning, there was some miscommunication about deadlines, but once we put this on the table, it was handled properly. Since then, we had frequent communication via Skype and ActiveCollab.

I was impressed with their flexibility.

Are there any areas they could improve?

In the beginning, we had communication issues around deadlines.
