The Review
Feedback summary: 

The iOS application has received positive feedback regarding its look and functionality. Peerbits is great at communicating and project management, allowing for a successful partnership. They also stuck to deadlines and cost-estimates, leading to a great value of service.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

My business is RoadCash, a brand new startup for injured workers that are receiving workers compensation benefits. There are a bunch of apps doing IRS tax deductions, but no one is doing medical reimbursement. We take the distance when someone goes to doctor's appointments, then we calculate that by the mileage rate, and then submit the reimbursement. We are taking everything that's paper and manual labor and we're making that digital now. I'm the founder of the company and I have a partner who invested with me.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Peerbits?

Initially, we had a few hundred thousand dollars for development. I spoke to a lot of companies before Peerbits. I wanted to keep it in the United States, preferably New York City where I am located, but I was willing to go to companies in California. We started working with the company Appster and then we moved on to Fueled, which is a huge company in New York City, and then we looked at moving to Fuzz. What I got out of these US development agencies is that they'll never give you a price quote. They're not bad, but they're really expensive.

I know what we needed; I'm pretty tech savvy. I don't know how to code, but I didn't think that it was that hard of an app to develop. I started searching around some more after we had the designs done. We had all the user stories done, which makes communication a lot easier since the whole idea is laid out. We also had the initial design. Peerbits needed to develop on top of those designs and use the same design structure.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

When I went to Peerbits, I told them we had all of the user stories and the wireframes. Then, I told them our budget; I wasn't looking to spend over $10,000. They came back to me with a price quote, how much I was to pay upfront, and information on different payment installments.

At first, I really wasn't sure what to expect. It was kind of a last-ditch effort to not pay a few hundred grand to get it done. After a month, I received demo one. Everything looked great and everything functioned properly. The biggest negative factor, I would say, is it takes a lot more work to make a change to what you already had because you have to really spell it out for them. You have to go over the grammar. It is a lot more work than working with a US agency.

They did complete 100% of the development and met all of the milestones. The app is in the iTunes store now. We still need to update some small features. They never up-charged me for anything I needed to change. If they did something wrong, they'd fix it the next day.

They have to use the shortest distance through Google Maps, and then they calculate that by mileage reimbursement. They used the Google Maps API in the app because you have to use the shortest distance through Google Maps to calculate the mileage reimbursement. And we have geolocator; whenever you are at a doctor's appointment, there's a GeoReminder. They'll send you notifications, which is something I had them build for me. There is also an attorney questionnaire and other small functionalities.

They've done everything for me. I write the app description, and then they upload the app to the Apple store and make any changes needed during that process. We developed the iOS version first and we're developing the Android version now. We already had the wireframes for the iOS app, so I wanted to see how they did on that. They did a really good job, so now we're doing the Android app, which should be released within a month from now.

How did you come to work with Peerbits?

I found the ratings on Clutch and that was a big decision-maker in why I hired Peerbits because they have previous reviews on Clutch and other review websites. I went to check out their website. I contacted about 5 to 10 agencies overseas and Peerbits got back to me really fast. I decided to go with Peerbits and to roll out the development. They gave me a great price quote. Fueled and Fuzz and all of the US agencies were quoting me about $ 400,000for what I got done with Peerbits for less than $10,000.

How much have you invested with them?

Originally, they quoted me less than $10,000. I did make one change, so it probably comes out to close to $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

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

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

There are no statistics right now. We just released the iOS version and I will not be doing any marketing until the Android version is released.

I have shown the app to a lot of my friends. All of my friends say the design looks great and the functionality is great. Everyone likes the app and they say it's very modern and updated. I had my friend download the second demo, the Android version, and everyone she showed it to said it's really good.

The only negative is the address function. They're in India, so it works well there, but it's not exactly how I want it to be. Ultimately, it could be a little easier to input the address; they had some trouble implementing that. Otherwise, everyone says the design looks good and everything works perfectly.

How did Peerbits perform from a project management standpoint?

They're really good at project management. They email me every day. They use Teamwork, which is where they log all of their time. I can see exactly what they're working on and where they're at in the project.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The best thing is that I was going to spend over $200,000. I ended up getting exactly what I asked for, for one-twentieth of the cost. That's the best thing. Overall they've been a really good company. There is nothing negative. The best thing is their pricing.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I'm doing a lot of the quality assurance. When I worked US developers, that was not the case. And I didn’t have much feedback, but I did run quality assurance.

Feedback summary: 

Assigned resources produced a working MVP within an aggressive time frame and made revisions quickly, all while working with limited funds. This sense of urgency sets them apart from the competition and makes Peerbits Solutions a great partner for startups.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of Loyal1, which is a loyalty management platform for small businesses.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Peerbits Solutions?

It was basically creating a backend that applies a certain algorithmic function to loyalty transactions. My background is in development, but I’m more of an IT strategy consultant. I worked for consulting companies for over ten years. I was looking to develop a cloud-based solution that runs on mobile phones and can be used by small businesses without needing to integrate with any point-of-sale systems.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

When I went to Peerbits initially, I didn’t have much of a budget. I needed to create an app that I could use to raise funds. The initial phase of the app just digitizes loyalty cards so that people don’t need to carry the cards themselves when they go to the shop. They can just display the smartphone at the point of sale. We launched that, and I managed to raise funds for the second phase, which I’ll be offering for small businesses.

Peerbits handles both the design and development aspects for the application. It’s on Android and iOS, and also works on iWatch and Android Wear. Peerbits has also developed a marketing website and an admin panel. They’re doing everything. I’ve got people locally who are doing activations and search engine optimization for me.

How did you come to work with Peerbits Solutions?

I started looking for developers on Upwork. Initially, it was too expensive for me to develop in South Africa. Through Upwork, I Peerbits’ profile. I googled them, visited their website, and contacted them directly. I’ve managed teams in the same area they’re based through a company I worked for as a technical lead. In that role, I had been looking after a team of developers based in India, so I was comfortable to go that route.

How much have you invested with Peerbits Solutions?

So far, the cost has been just under $40,000. We’re looking at probably $50,000–$80,000 in the next 12 months.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began the project in August of 2016, and the relationship is ongoing. We’re developing the system in stages, and we still have another 12–18 months before we can be really finished.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Peerbits agreed to take me on, even though I needed a lot of functionality for a very small budget. Now, we are a business that’s launching in about two weeks, and customers are going to be paying us for a change. We’ve been meeting our targets so far, and I’ve been very happy with the quality of work. The way the app looks and operates is great, and our users like it. They’ve met all key metrics and expectations for the development work.

How did Peerbits Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been very good. We use Teamwork as our project management software, and we have meetings and sessions at least every two days. They’re always available to take calls and for changes. I’ve been very happy with the system they use for managing the project because it’s actually integrated with my email.

What did you find most impressive about Peerbits Solutions?

They have a sense of urgency and an ability to get things together in a short period of time, so I am able to meet my deadlines. I’ve been bootstrapping this whole exercise. When investors needed something changed, I had to move fast to get something I could demo to them. Peerbits has been very good at getting the relevant skills on board in a short period of time, giving me functionality that wasn’t initially part of the scope but was going to secure funding.

Are there any areas Peerbits Solutions could improve?

The only thing I can think of is a few grammatical errors in messages and prompts here and there, as English is not their native language. It hasn’t been an issue in communicating with them. It’s just something that cropped up once in a blue moon in code, and it’s easy to fix. It’s never been an issue for me.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of a company called Leazzer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Peerbits?

I worked with Peerbits to develop an iOS app for my business.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I conceived the idea for the app, came up with the design and testing of it, and gave that information to Peerbits. Peerbits designed the graphical user interface and did all of the development. The app allows users to build an income by renting out household items that are sitting around their home and garage. The items could be furniture, lawnmowers, canoes, bicycles, power tools, etc. To their credit, Peerbits did pretty well with the project.

How did you come to work with Peerbits?

I interviewed a couple of companies, but I liked Peerbits the best, so I hired them. They also were recommended to me. Peerbits was fairly aggressive in their pitch; they looked hungry for the work. The work I had seen them do previously was pretty good as well.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in August 2016, and the project went live in January. We’re doing bug fixes, so we still work together on and off.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

The app’s overall performance has been great.

How did Peerbits perform from a project management standpoint?

I had a few project management issues when working with Peerbits, but I expected that, so it was OK. There are going to be problems and limitations when working with any offshore team. Communication was not an issue. We did set deadlines, but I knew I had to treat them more like guideposts and milestones rather than hard deadlines. I understand that offshore workers are not going to be like your employees because they have other projects they’re working besides yours. Peerbits’ work has been pretty good, and I have a complete and robust product; it’s not your normal MVP [minimum viable product]. Overall the project management has been pretty good, and I’m happy with it.

What did you find most impressive about Peerbits?

Peerbits’ graphical user interface is top class. I love it.

Are there any areas Peerbits could improve?

There are always ways to improve. Setting expectations with the client could be better. I quickly realized I was not the only one in development with Peerbits. I knew what to expect regarding the quality of work coming from offshore companies because they obviously have to make profits. It’s up to you as an entrepreneur to make sure that you get what you want. If you don't know what you want, nobody can help you anyway.

Peerbits provided quality work. However, there were some scheduling and delivery issues. Their project management and design were done well according to the client.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our company runs a large e-commerce website for jewelry. I am the Chief Executive Officer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Peerbits?

We've found that web developers in India tend to have a narrow scope of expertise. Our requirements were complex, and we needed to find a technically competent partner.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Peerbits has developed our platform using Python as per our requirements.

How did you come to work with Peerbits?

We had been approached by and experimented with other providers before working with Peerbits. We sent them an inquiry to which Peerbits responded quickly. We discussed our scope with their business analyst over Skype and put together a requirements document. I also flew to Peerbits' location in order to ensure that they'd have a complete understanding of our needs.

How much have you invested with Peerbits?

The total cost of our project with Peerbits was around $15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Peerbits in September 2015, and have an ongoing relationship for updates and maintenance.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

The quality of the work provided by Peerbits has been good. Due to the complexity of the project, we took some wrong directions which required 15-20 days of rework.

How did Peerbits perform from a project management standpoint?

Peerbits had a seamless work approach, logging the work hours put in by developers and providing this information to us. This is atypical compared to other service companies, who offer much less transparency. Peerbits spent time with us going through requirements and made a deep analysis of the project. The development milestones were broken down into the smallest tasks, like buttons, colors, user interface, and architecture elements, giving a good overview for our partners.

There were a few issues which we sorted out, so the timeline was slightly delayed. The quality was excellent. Peerbits has some good design capabilities and were able to understand our requirements as a client.

What did you find most impressive about Peerbits?

Peerbits is very impressive in terms of design.

Are there any areas Peerbits could improve?

We expect Peerbits to work even harder in the future.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

Peerbits developed our app for Android and iOS.

How did you come to work with Peerbits?

I found Peerbits through Upwork, which was called Elance at the time.

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

The total development cost with Peerbits was in the range of $5,000-7,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with Peerbits during 2015. We're planning on starting the second phase of our project, but haven't approached Peerbits yet.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

I have overall positive feedback for Peerbits. With their help, I was able to launch the product in time for a business competition. We're now planning on building the next phase of the app, and we will use Peerbits again.

How did Peerbits perform from a project management standpoint?

Our main challenge was managing the time difference. Peerbits is based in India, while we are in the US. Once we established common meeting times, the relationship worked well.

What distinguishes Peerbits from other providers?

Peerbits had a dedicated project manager for our work. I have worked with other outsourcing agencies in India and other places. Having a project manager meant that we could maintain communication through a single point of contact.

Is there anything Peerbits could have improved or done differently?

Peerbits could improve in terms of timing. In the beginning, we had challenges with setting up meetings and assigning tasks, but we overcame this after Peerbits' project manager came onboard.

How did you come to work with Peerbits?

We found them through an internet freelance services site. If I remember correctly, it was Guru.

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

The project with Peerbits ran about $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working on the project with Peerbits in April of 2015. Our work with them is still ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

The result is a close-to-finished app. It has been in pre-beta for two weeks. We’ve received diverse feedback, but most have stated that they like the idea. The app is a bit confusing to use, so we are redesigning and simplifying it a bit now with Peerbits.

How did Peerbits perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been great. Peerbits has been very supportive along the way. Additionally, they have offered us good advice on the project.

What distinguishes Peerbits from other providers?

What is your position?

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Peerbits?

We wanted to leverage global talent at an affordable cost, while only having an office within the US or Africa.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

A lot of the projects that I've run with Peerbits have focused on localizing global products to the African market. We have developed things like dog sites and social media sites with an Afrocentric approach. I have a European partner who has designed most of my websites. The main challenge was building a mobile application. I don't have a mobile development background, which is where Peerbits came in.

We've built a job app as well as social media and events ones. They performed very well, given the technological constraints with which they worked.

How did you come to work with Peerbits?

I did some research on their company and gave them some initial test projects. I found Peerbits through Elance.com. I reviewed a lot of applications for the projects that I posted on the site.

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

The typical cost of developing an app was less than $10,000. The development cost was very affordable, which was the main attraction point for them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We've been working together for two and a half to three years. Our relationship is ongoing. We're currently working on a non-profit app.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

Peerbits has done a decent job overall. I will keep working with them in the future. They are able to develop products which are on par to anything coming from Silicon Valley.  I see any shortcomings as being opportunities for improvement.

How did Peerbits perform from a project management standpoint?

Communication with them is excellent. It makes them stand out more than their quality of work.

What distinguishes Peerbits from other providers?

They are a very good company. Within a technological global market, the difference between a good product and a decent one is very wide. This is the reason for the failures within the industry. Peerbits stands out by being able to do good work within a highly competitive industry, without having the typical resources of an American developer. Out of the hundreds of development companies in India, less than 10% can deliver mobile apps with the same quality that Peerbits can.

Is there anything Peerbits could have improved or done differently?

I would like to see them get to the next level and create apps on par with ones being made by large corporations. Testing focus would be another area of improvement. Overall, Peerbits is a great company, but there are always areas of improvement.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We are an IT [information technology] technology consultancy firm in Nigeria. At the low level, we help businesses with web services: building websites, corporate identity designs, and technological consultancy.

What is your position?

I am the head of operations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Peerbits Solution?

We were working on a new project involving a mobile app product. In house, we don't have capabilities of app development, so we needed a company to outsource that piece of work to. We went hunting for that, and we found Peerbits.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

The app was built for Android and iOS. For Android, they used native Android language. The iOS was built last because we wanted the Android version first before the iOS one. As far as technology is concerned, they offered to use native Android language, which was fine with us. They were able to do what we needed done. It's standard, and that was pretty much it for us. I wasn't choosy on what languages they used.

How did you come to work with Peerbits Solution?

I used Elance and Freelancer. It was pretty much going into Elance and then short listing what I'm looking for. I normally put a set criteria. The way Elance works is, you search by what skill sets you're after, and you can sort by their ranking on quality. Sometimes, I use the amount of reviews. After I have a short list, I quickly go to see what the portfolios are like. From there, I short list again. When I have a couple, I simply send them my job description and wait for feedback.

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

With everything we did with them for iOS and Android, I think it was something around $8,000 to $12,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them earlier this year, sometime in March [2015], and the collaboration is ongoing. We outsourced the mobile application development to them, which on one level was completed. The scope of work was completed, but we have some new additions that they are working on. The main scope of the project was completed, and they are still working on some new improvements for the app.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

The outcome of the project has been good. We weren't disappointed. From a design point of view, to the way it's performing, we think we really got value for our money, so everybody's happy.

How did Peerbits Solution perform from a project management standpoint?

The management of the project was professional. I like the way Peerbits Solution structured the process. From the onset, the work and the timeline of each stage were spelled out clearly. They used a project manager or delivery manager style or approach. The business development guys who kind of engages you, before your project has been assigned to them, is different from the project manager who eventually manages your project.

For my project, their delivery manager has been very professional. He was able to communicate very well, both in writing and speaking. I worked with a couple of Indian companies in the past from Elance, and it's always good to be able to get someone who can communicate. Their project management style is good. The guy who is working on our project is quite sound, and they keep to the milestones and the timeline specified.

What distinguishes Peerbits Solution from other providers?

This is the first time I'm outsourcing a mobile application, so I wouldn't be in the best position to compare them. I can't really say for sure what makes them unique. On my project, they worked on promotional websites. That was like an add-on to what they did. Firstly, they were kind enough to do those pro bono. They are very flexible in that regard.

We needed a landing page, and that wasn't discussed at the start of the project, but they were able to help. We have a simple landing page, at least for the stage where we're at, that brings sign-ups. You go there and see that there's a project that's coming to life. They're currently building the main websites as well. They do web development from scratch, which is very good. They do design, then they show you the design. If you're happy with it, then they code it.

With the kind of websites that I have been doing in the past, it hasn't been that way – doing the design and then the development. In the market I serve, we try to bring efficient online web development. We rely on items like WordPress or the other platform based templates. From the web point of view, they do design and then they develop, as opposed to using templates.

Is there anything Peerbits Solution could have improved or done differently?

There were a couple of things that I think I would have done better. When it comes to the scope of work, there's a limit to how much flexibility I'm given. There are some items you might not know that you need when you start, but as you're developing it, ideas come up and you realize you might also want this or that. However, you have already approved the wireframe and the design, and they've started developing it. From a development point of view, the time has been used to do it, and when you want to make a change – sometimes it's kind of like you build a house and then you want an extra room. If you really want it, some costs will be involved with making major changes. It's a flexibility thing, but there's a limit to how flexible they could be.

I really wish I would have gotten some more flexibility. However, if I'm to be considerate, in the sense of development, time was put into it. If you come back with some adjustments, most of the time the developer has to look into the codes, to adjust them. If I'm being considerate, that wouldn't be fair. I wish there was much more leeway when it comes to flexibility, but I understand the way coding works enough to know that there's a limit to how flexible a developer can be.

Feedback summary: 

Peerbits’ contributions to the project resulted in an app that was well received upon launch. The client enjoys their partnership with the agency because of Peerbits’ outstanding ability to deliver on their promises and do so quickly.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

My company designs solutions to make living with cancer easier by garnering help from your friends.

What is your position?

I am founder and director.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Peerbits Solution?

I simply needed a company that could design a functional mobile application to my specifications. They also needed to offer guidance and advice along the way, as this area is new to me.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

It was to build my app according to my brief. Being new to this area, I thought I had provided a full brief, but turned out it was not detailed by any means. Peerbits worked with me to get to a stage where we both had a workable understanding about what the app was to do.

How did you come to work with Peerbits Solution?

Initially, I selected companies according to their "star rating" on Elance. I then narrowed them down by reading about other projects they had completed and looking for companies who had completed similar projects to mine. I read their customer's feedback on Elance. Then, I contacted some companies they had worked with in the past to see if the fit would be right for my project and me. I liked that they appeared to be dedicated to being the best in their field and the fact they pride themselves on their business ethics.

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

I think they quoted approximately $5,600 to get the app up and running, and we opted to have an hourly rate for the project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started in October 2013 and the first version of the app was released in March/April 2014. I have since contracted them again in July 2014 to make additions and amendments to the app. At the moment, the project is still ongoing. Due to unforeseen circumstances from July last year to the middle of this year, I was unable to devote much time to the project. Since returning to work, we now have the new version of the app in presales and beta testing in the App Store.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

I have had some press coverage and have media opportunities lined up for when the next version is released. I am currently negotiating a licensing partnership with a breast cancer organization – they feel the app will help their members. To date, due to family circumstances, I have not done a lot of promotion, but that is to change shortly. Suffice to say, you get out what you put in.

How did Peerbits Solution perform from a project management standpoint?
My initial contract with them was outstanding from this point of view. My second contract, once I started back at work, was not great initially due to issues with the project manager. I highlighted these to Patel and he immediately set about making amendments. I have just been assigned a new project manager, too.

What distinguishes Peerbits Solution from other providers?

I feel what is truly unique is that Peerbits Solution actually stands by the fact that they want to be seen as an ethical and honest company – and they deliver on these things. I have had a number of discussions with Patel and others about my project where they have actually guided me to the correct decision and not just the decision that would make them more money. This means I will return as a customer. I can also contact Patel with any issues via Skype and he addresses then straight away. They also work fast – very fast! Most of the time, they have been waiting on me to look over or test something and often give me the hurry up.

Is there anything Peerbits Solution could have improved or done differently?

I honestly cannot think of anything.

Feedback summary: 

Peerbits’ work on the project has been comprehensive and of high quality. The client appreciates the agency’s tendency to go beyond simply fulfilling requests and also make valuable suggestions for improvements.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Right now, I'm working in a sole proprietorship called Face Off. This is the second app we've made.

What is your position?

I'm the founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Peerbits Solution?

We've had multiple developers creating our apps, but we didn't have a good developer who is on time and organized. Our main goal, honestly, was to get along. It's hard sometimes, especially working with an overseas team, but they were very flexible with the timing. They catered to whatever we needed, and we got along with the project and now we're ahead of schedule, which is great.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

We're building a game app for both Android and iOS. They've done literally everything. They've done the designs, the C-panels, the admin panels, all the program – everything. All we did was let them know what we wanted, and they did everything from there.

How did you come to work with Peerbits Solution?

We stumbled across Peerbits on Elance, and they actually were the first company that I've been satisfied with and very happy. 

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

That information is confidential.

What is the status of this engagement?

We've been working with them for a little more than a month, and we're almost done. Originally, I wanted to finish in two months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

We've set up five milestones, and once they complete each one, we pay them for that. We're already on the fifth milestone, so we're close to being done.

According to the data I've had on the admin panel, it seems like they have a fairly large team working on the project. There are maybe four or five developers, and they've had more than 40 accounts testing my app, which is their internal testing. We're in the process of pre-releasing it to external testers, and we'll do that once we're done with the final stages of internal testing.

What distinguishes Peerbits Solution from other providers?

They're not a "yes" company. They don't agree with everything you say. If Peerbits Solution thinks there's something better, or they think there's something that might work better for a user or for someone outside the box, they'll definitely let you know. They give good input. I'm not that experienced as it's only my third app right now. Sometimes, what I have in mind might not be best, and Peerbits gives great feedback. Their input and advice is what I like most about them.

Is there anything Peerbits Solution could have improved or done differently?

I haven't come across anything. So far, we've been doing really well as a team.
