Phaedra had many great reviews and seemed knowledgeable and dependable. We love the team, they are very great at thinking outside of the box, and have solved many complex issues.

Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and technologies used.

We worked with the Phaedra team to design the mobile and web application for My Undercover Agent. We had many steps from the design build to the implementation, to the subscription and stripe integration to the final launch. We used nodejs, AWS, React and many other technologies.

How many people from the vendor's team worked with you, and what were their positions?

We worked with project managers, designers, mobile and web developers.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The team delivers high-qaulity work that is reflective of the requirements and standards set by the internal staff. Their management team is quick to prioritize and solve problems as they arise, making the team a sustainable development partner to grow and scale the platform into the future.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a software startup working in the energy space within logistics and procurement.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Phaedra Solutions?

We needed a reliable technical partner to build out a software solution.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We built several software assets, including mobile applications, a web portal, and a backend infrastructure used to manage our data. Initially, we hired them to build a single mobile app, and that expanded to an MVP of our entire platform. We’re expanding their development services further organically this year as well. 

The software is an internal enterprise resource planning procurement and logistics platform. Since our relationship started, we’ve pivoted to capture more of a global market. They’ve done a great job adapting to that, taking it in stride. 

What is the team composition?

We work primarily with the developers directly, however, we have contact with the CEO and CTO. Their executives have always gone out of their way to provide the services we needed from them. 

How did you come to work with Phaedra Solutions?

I originally found them on Upwork and spoke to them about our initial task for them. They performed well and our relationship grew from there. We’ve since moved off the Upwork platform, integrating their services more closely with our team. Our business is largely focused on the market in Southeast Asia, so a partnership with their team also made sense to us geographically.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $100,000–$200,000 on their work. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working with them since June 2019.  

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The quality of their work is very high. I needed a technical partner to adhere to our needs from a development perspective without making assumptions about our needs on their own. Our industry and needs are niche, and they understood that in their work. As we expand our work with them, we’ll likely be augmenting our team with their software resources.  

How did Phaedra Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re good communicators. While there are some expected drawbacks from a time zone perspective, they’ve always been very responsive. If we bring an issue up, the management team going above and beyond to solve it. I’m happy with the relationship. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re great developers, working well with our give requirements and use cases. We also have a shared cultural knowledge through Pakistan, which is useful. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

Everything comes down to communication. Make sure that you take creative charge of your project, and don’t leave requirements up to the interpretation of their team.

They definitely have the ability to work with clients outside of their time zone and hemisphere. They’re experienced at communicating on that level.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Include someone with experience in product management in your communication. That will help you communicate exactly what you want. Issues in communication and misunderstandings will occur if they have to make assumptions as to what your team needs.

Phaedra Solutions successfully launched the new site with complete features required by the company. Since they demonstrated exceptional work, they were hired to render their services again. Overall, their project management was seamless and communication was outstanding.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the CTO of a personalized shopping service. My role is to look after everything tech-related.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Phaedra Solutions, and what were your goals?

We've recently hired a designer and an expert to do a full re-branding exercise for the business. Since we're an e-commerce business, a lot of this exercise also meant an update in the UI/UX of our entire web application. As this was quite a big task and we had a timeline we wanted it completed by, I've decided to hire an external agency to do the changes.

SOLUTION

How did you select Phaedra Solutions and what were the deciding factors?

I hired Phaedra Solutions based on excellent reviews on Upwork and based on previous work they've done for other clients.

Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and technologies used.

They took over an existing Ruby on Rails project and implemented the new UI/UX on it over the course of a few months, including addition of new features and a major clean up and optimization in the code.

How many people from the vendor's team worked with you, and what were their positions?

There were 2 people from their team working with me on a regular basis: a full-stack Ruby on Rails Developer and a team lead, who would oversee and consult on each sprint.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any measurable outcomes of the project or general feedback about the deliverables?

We were able to launch the new, re-designed website with all the new features and deliverables on time. On top of that, due to their familiarity with the project and good work ethics, we hired them to work with me on a regular basis, to help with future development work going forward.

Describe their project management style, including communication tools and timelines.

Project management was great. The full-stack developer had a daily report every day of what was done and was to be done the next day. On top of that, the team lead got involved regularly for weekly calls and for any issues that came up along the way.

What did you find most impressive or unique about this company?

Unlike most digital agencies, with Phaedra, I had both direct access to the developer and the team lead, pretty much at all times. They were available daily for any kind of review and were very flexible when we had to make additional changes to plans, treating this project as their own business and advising on best practices, rather than just a one-off task list.

Are there any areas for improvement or something they could have done differently?

One comment that I might make is improvement in communication. For the most part, all conversations were done through a team lead, who had excellent English and excellent technical skills. In his absence, I struggled a little bit to communicate directly with the developers sometimes.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Digital Director at Katch International, a PR and Marketing firm with offices in Sydney, London and Dubai.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Phaedra Solutions?

A client required development of an app for both Android and iOS. The app contained several complex systems, and was to include backend cloud-based CMS to manage app users and their listings.

The team at Phaedra was exceptional in both understanding the scope and executing on abstract ideas that required a high level of creativity and a thorough understanding of logistics.

What were your goals for this project?

  1. A polished look and feel for the app
  2. A scaleable approach to development to parallel the growth projections of the business
  3. on-time delivery
  4. on or under budget
SOLUTION

How did you select Phaedra Solutions?

I have worked with Phaedra on projects in the past. They have always delivered on our agreements and they are my perferred dev team for all complex projects that come through Katch.

Describe the project in detail.

We used our in-house designers to create the different views in the app. Prior to that, we ran several discovery meetings to understand the user story and how they would progress through the app. Once design and UX was established, we handed it off to Phaedra to complete.

Phaedra provided us with the requirements they need (hosting, domains, 3rd party software etc.) to get everything done. They then take the wheel and setup the milestones and tasks on Trello, so we can monitor every step of their progress.

What was the team composition?

Project manager Lead developer Development team

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app was launched on time, despite some unforseen challenges.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Excellent communication, with the assistance of a well set-up Trello board.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Expertise in every aspect of the development process. A clear understanding of what needs to be done. Cost effective

Are there any areas for improvement?

I cannot think of a time when I have been let down by anyone at Phaedra over the course of several projects.

The product is a delivery app. Users can scroll through different types of food by wholesale, cuisines, merchants, and the user can also track the order. There are live notifications, and the user will see how much food we have saved and how much it has impacted the environment.

What is the team composition?

We work with a total of five people. We regularly work with 2–3 developers. On top of that, we have the creative people who we work with when we need to make new videos.

How did you come to work with Phaedra Solutions?

It was word of mouth. They were recommended by someone I know who helped us at the beginning to start the base development. We needed to have something bigger and more sustainable and this vendor referred me to Phaedra Solutions. 

How much have you invested in them?

We have spent between $40,000–$60,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together around the end of August 2019, and we currently have them on retainer. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We send our customers a small questionnaire every two months to see what they like and what they don’t like. We use their feedback to plan for new updates. 

In terms of bugs, there were a little more at the beginning, but over 85% of users are absolutely loving it. Everyone loves the flow and how clean and practical the app is. We have been getting amazing feedback about it which is great, and that’s why we’re still working with them.

How did Phaedra Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been super responsive, and get back to me even when I contact them after hours. They are based in Pakistan, so sometimes, especially with my being French, there may be a mistranslation and I need to reexplain things, but otherwise, it has been amazing.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I haven’t worked with that many providers, but I have to say that they are super flexible and extremely responsive. Every time I have an emergency, they are on it and try to solve it within 5 to 10 minutes of me texting them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

In the beginning, because they didn’t know me, they didn’t take the initiative to tell me what they felt was better, but now they do that. They don’t wait for me to tell them to do something, they come to me and tell me what they think would work better. They are taking the initiative which is what I appreciate. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be extremely clear about what you want. For example, I like to create a point of reference so that they properly understand how I want it to look when it comes to the color and wording. If you know exactly what you want in your head, it is good to put it on paper for them so they won’t waste time trying to clarify with you.
