SD Bank - Fintech

Company that socializes access to essential financial services and empowers buyers and sellers in business relationships. Have you ever wondered how much time you've spent in endless queues? And how much paperwork have you had to face to get a card? The modus operandi of traditional banks is so ingrained that we do not realize that it is possible to do differently.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The in-house team is impressed with the quality of Plathanus’ work and their communication skills. Knowledgeable and experienced, Plathanus resolves issues quickly, while their collaborative approach makes them easy to work with.

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 travel app, and I'm the president of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Plathanus?

We were looking for a vendor to develop our app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We gave Plathanus the wireframes and they developed both the front- and backend of our application. It's an app for iOS and Android that allows users to search for and select flights. It also automatically notifies users if the flight has been canceled or delayed. Plathanus integrated the app with Stripe and other third-party APIs. It's quite a complex app, but Plathanus did a great job making it user-friendly for our customers. Our in-house team is also very involved, so it's been a collaborative process.

What is the team composition? 

We work with three developers and a project manager. 

How did you come to work with Plathanus?

I read their reviews on Clutch and I decided to contact them. 

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent about $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement? 

We started working with Plathanus in September 2018 and the relationship is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The application is not live yet, but they definitely know what they're doing. The quality of their work is excellent. 

How did Plathanus perform from a project management standpoint? 

They're great communicators and they always let us know if there is a delay. We use Jira to keep track of the project. If there are any bugs or issues, Plathanus addresses them pretty quickly. We also use WhatsApp to keep in touch.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They're very approachable and work well as a team. They're also very knowledgeable and try to identify issues as soon as possible. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

We've had a lot of bugs and improvements, so we're a little bit behind the schedule. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They're definitely a reliable and trustworthy partner.

An integrated payment gateway allows customers to confirm these details and submit orders.
