    Upper 90 Image

    Upper 90

    Upper 90 is New York’s premier source for soccer gear, including the latest soccer jerseys, footwear and equipment from leading brands such as Nike, Adidas and Puma.


    FEATURE: Sale with filters

    If sales are something common in your business, creating a separate subpage with all your Sale products sound like an excellent idea. In Upper90 case we’ve done so but still, it wasn’t enough. The

    great number of discounted products of many different kinds was hard to search so we’ve added proper filters to make shopping of the cut-price products as easy as in any other category.


    FEATURE: In-store pickup

    The Upper90 has few stationary shops and thanks to efficient warehouse system they allow users to pick up their purchase up in freely chosen one. To make the decision as easy as possible a needed info about given store is provided right away in checkout.


    AMAZON WEB SERVICES (AWS)

    Upper90 takes a serious approach to safety and stability. The AWS allows to autoscale the web servers to make them always adequate to the traffic on the store. Thanks to that they are prepared for every situation, even short and sudden high traffic like during sales don’t cause any problems in loading time or access to the store.

    DNA Test Image

    DNA Test

    It’s an online DNA Diagnostics Center and a great example of multi store. They serve their services to people around at least 6 countries with payment and delivery methods adjusted for each country.


    FEATURE: Multi-Store

    DNA test is an excellent example of the multi-store.The owner runs 5 similar but not identical online stores in 3 languages and has 2 more inactive stores ready to

    launch when there will be a right moment for that.The main layout of the stores looks the same but it doesn’t have to be that way.

    Each store has a separate domain so it can be customized separately – they are not just the different language versions of the same store. What’s more, every store has separate IP addresses what helps SEO.

    All stores are operated through one Admin Panel what makes things much easier to use.The most obvious and the most important difference between DNA test stores are payment methods but there is much more. It starts with all kinds of emails with proper graphics, names and in proper language (e.g. like new order, new order for guests, new invoice, new invoice for guests) and gets to differences in prices.

    FEATURE: Map with store info

    When stationery shops are an important part of your business (maybe even more than the online store), it’s really important to provide users needed presentations of

    them.

    Peter Jacksons has over 50 stationery shops so the easy way to find the nearest one with basic info is an important feature.

    Beside pin on the map, a user gets directions from inputted localization (on foot, by car or by bus) to the chosen store, it’s opening hours, phone and email.

    Feedback summary: 

    The service and deliverables from Panda Group made a strong impact on the client, leaving them satisfied and happy with the experience. As a team, they demonstrate professionalism and extensive knowledge in their industry. They emphasize a clear, transparent, and engaged approach. 

    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 head of digital for a manufacturing company. I head up the e-commerce, website and digital delivery, online marketing, and CRM.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Panda Group?

    We needed a new platform for our e-commerce site.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    They did a gap analysis of each individual asset in the market to determine what content we lacked, what needed to be migrated, and so on. From there, they migrated content from the old website, merging it into the new design on the platform.

    They used Commerce Cloud and common technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. We taught them our backend, as well. They ran some AB testing projects and built different tests for different audiences to see which performed the best.

    What is the team composition?

    We worked with 8–10 people, including a project manager and senior resources on the front- and backend. 

    How did you come to work with Panda Group?

    I had worked with them previously.

    How much have you invested with them?

    We spent between €75,000–€100,000 (approximately $89,000 - $118,000 USD).

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We worked together from November 2016–May 2019. 

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    They’re a really good company. They have good business ethics and are very knowledgeable. Overall, I’m very pleased to have worked with them.

    How did Panda Group perform from a project management standpoint?

    Their project management was above average; we were very happy with it. Communication was very clear and easy. We used Slack.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    I appreciated that they were down to earth, worked one-on-one with us, and offered easy communication. 

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    I don’t have anything to complain about.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    It’s great if you have a technical person on your side working with them. They really like to show the customer the work, and be engaged directly.

    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 electronics retailer.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Panda Group?

    We were on an e-commerce platform that was being shut down, and we needed assistance moving to a new one.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    They helped us migrate to a new platform. First, they looked at our needs and transferring the data for us. Then, they looked at the UI on the site and worked to make sure it was compliant with various web standards. Next, they deployed security patches and launched new features with us. Since then, they’ve been providing maintenance, security, and support.

    What is the team composition?

    I work with Szymon (CEO & Co-founder). There are probably 3-4 others that we deal with.

    How did you come to work with Panda Group?

    I found them through a freelancing platform. We ended up working directly with them for a significant period of the time we’ve dealt with them.

    How much have you invested with them?

    We’ve spent around $25,000.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We started working together in January 2015, and the engagement is ongoing.  

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    Our revenue is up over 100% from our first year to our fifth year together.

    How did Panda Group perform from a project management standpoint?

    They communicated well. We have a ticketing system that’s very satisfactory.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    The team was honest with us when we looked at solutions that proved to be too complicated or very expensive to fix. They felt the marginal gains that we would get by going down the custom development route vs the cost wasn’t a good return on investment. They were quite informative and warned us when we were incurring costs when we didn’t need to.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    The few problems we had, came down to a bit of a language barrier. That’s a problem that happens around the world, though, even with other English-speaking countries with different phraseology. We’ve only had 1–2 misunderstandings over the course of five years.

    Feedback summary: 

    The website effectively stands out over competitors thanks to its user-friendliness, which allows clients to understand how everything works better. Their team sets clear expectations, but what stands out the most is their customer-centric approach and fair pricing.

    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 owner of Big Berkey Water Filters. We install gravity water filtration systems for homes and sometimes businesses.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Panda Group?

    We needed help in improving our website’s UX from entry all the way to checkout. We also wanted to improve its look and make it faster.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    Panda Group has done everything for us. There were times when I provided them with designs that I had created with someone else, but they also do design work. They’d often take those designs and make it work better with our website’s Magento backend. Furthermore, they worked on the website’s UX.

    If a customer runs into something on a product page that is confusing, Panda Group is able to provide a solution, whether it is on how to make popups better or ways to automatically show different options to customers. It’s important to us that users aren’t slowed down in the learning process of the site. Panda Group has been crucial in ramping up a user’s journey with their design changes.

    Additionally, they created a water filter calculator that helps people choose which water filter system to buy based on a step-by-step process that analyzes various household factors. Over the last year, our work with them has increased. From a competitive standpoint, I’ve been trying to keep the site up to date as much as possible, and am giving Panda Group projects at least once a week that take anywhere from two to 15 hours.

    What is the team composition?

    I work with four to five people, who are all of top quality.

    How did you come to work with Panda Group?

    I found them on Upwork.

    How much have you invested with them?

    I’ve spent $55,000 on their services so far.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We started working together in January 2014 and the collaboration is ongoing.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    I often get feedback from customers saying that our website was the easiest to navigate and learn from, which is why they made a purchase from our site rather than our competitors. It validates our belief of always tweaking and making improvements to the website because clients are always comparing you to a competitor.

    How did Panda Group perform from a project management standpoint?

    I always feel well tended to. They tell me who’s going to be handling what task, and I always hear back from them relatively soon with updates. They’re probably the fourth development group I’ve worked with and are the best by far. I often send emails on the things that I need to be done and the specialist in whatever area I need help in is who responds to me.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    Panda Group is a client-centric company. They make sure clients know where things are in the pipeline and how long they’re going to take, as well as the risks and benefits compared to the cost. They’re also reasonably priced, which is hard to find in this space.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    No.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    I recommend them to anyone. They’re great across the board.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I’m the co-founder and COO of tink GmbH. tink is the leading IoT marketplace for connected products and services. We employ more than 80 people and operate in Germany, Austria, and the US. The company is funded by Rocket Internet, ProSiebenSat1, and Vattenfall.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Panda Group?

    Panda Group provides back- and frontend development services for our IoT marketplace.

    What were your goals for this project?

    Our goals is to become the leading tech platform for selling connected products and services.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    We considered Panda Group along with five external agencies and a few internal options. Ultimately, we went with them based on 10 distinct criteria.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    Panda Group worked with our team to develop the backend platform for the marketplace in addition to developing and implementing the frontend structure. Since then, they’ve continued to help maintain and improve the site.

    What was the team composition?

    Throughout the project, they’ve provided up to 15 resources across various fields who work with our five in-house developers.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    We’ve worked with them for about two and a half years, now, and they’ve done an excellent job building the platform. They’re great partners who’ve helped us further develop our IoT marketplace.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    They set up the workflow in a highly professional manner, using team leads to manage all the sub-workstreams. Occasionally, their c-level members may also get involved. The CEO supports us with concept and structure work as well as ad-hoc critical problems. Likewise, the COO manages the operating business.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    The team has already rescued our marketplace twice during critical moments: once during Black Friday and again over Christmas. They’re always available to help and have allowed us to scale up our servers.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    It would be beneficial if they could propose more features that might be relevant in the future. Not to mention, cross-cultural communication can take a few weeks to settle into. But they’ve provided excellent service so far, and we have even higher growth targets for them.
