Customate Image

Customate

Customate’s founder is a chartered accountant, ex-private equity investment banker, and former CFO of EML payments ($EMCHF) who

resigned to start Customate. He asked Postindustria to custom build a product that would cover all the gaps his clients experienced during his work experience – providing a single tool for secure e-payments.

There were 2 important challenges to address: 

  1. Avoid payment gateways to keep operational costs fixed and low 
  2. Develop scalable architecture that doesn’t have to be redesigned in the foreseeable future

Postindustria knows that when working with non-technical founders it is important to take the lead and frame the project in terms of deliverables that are meaningful to the business. So Postindustria formed their product team around a manager with deep Fintech experience who would be in charge of the delivery.

Because of the sensitive nature of the system (payments), Postindustria took a thorough approach with testing. The product team identified the minimum viable product (MVP) that could be useful to a closed circle of beta users and focused on delivering that first, then expanding into a full solution after live testing.

Building the payment service was completely covered with unit and API tests, with Postindustria’s QA teams re-checking the parts the other one signed off to ensure no bugs made it into production. The team also conducted load testing, confirming the architecture is more than adequate for any foreseeable load from a customer base.

Feedback summary: 

Postindustria delivered all the agreed-upon features on-time, creating a platform that worked very well. Their team excelled at communication and management, as their professional and responsive staff always asked the right questions to understand company strategy.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our company is a proptech startup that offers automation of the letting process, helping landlords find good tenants. We offer tools that help landlords manage the letting process from start to finish.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

 

What challenge were you trying to address with Postindustria?

Our biggest challenge was to adopt a product management process that could translate our customers’ needs into feature requirements.  

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Postindustria helped us identify a feature prioritization strategy. They analyzed our requirements and decided to use bricks from a software that they had already developed for another customer, with their approval, and thus develop in a much faster way.

The biggest challenge in developing this product was understanding the letting process in the United Kingdom. There is a lot of legislation in place that landlords have to comply with, so there are lots of checks that need to be carried out. The system does this automatically by processing uploaded documents.

What is the team composition?

There were 5–6 people from Postindustria involved during the development phase. Nikolay (CTO) was the project lead, and he also played the role of a product manager because we didn’t have one at that time. Konstantin (CEO) was highly involved in the initial analysis, and he came up with a great idea to reuse parts of a software they’d already developed.

They also had DevOps in place, and a UX designer, who worked on the prototype of the product.  

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent roughly €150,000 (approximately $176,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We needed to develop an MVP very quickly, and Postindustria managed to do it in just two and a half months. The needs analysis was done in April 2018, the project started in May, and the first release was in July of that year. It took us a few more months to go beyond the MVP stage, and we finalized the project in November 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The highest measure of success was that Postindustria delivered all the features we agreed to in the scope of work on time. The platform worked really well, with only a few minor bugs.

How did Postindustria perform from a project management standpoint?

The communication was very good. We used Slack, email, and Zoom. I have nothing to complain about on the management side. They assigned each person involved to a specific task, and we worked together as a single company. They wanted us to succeed, and the collaboration worked very well.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were professional and always asked the right questions to progress, and they helped with our company strategy. They went the extra mile to deliver on time and on budget.

Their responsiveness was the most impressive part. Postindustria’s team sometimes worked until midnight or one o’clock in the morning to make sure they would deliver as quickly as possible. I never had to wait for more than 24 hours to get a response back from them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We could’ve had a better assessment initially on what would be required for the MVP. We realized after the launch that we needed some additional features.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

If key differentiating features between the client’s MVP and competing products aren’t there, then that’s not the right product. People want to test features that don’t exist in other products.

Feedback summary: 

The deliverables provided by Postindustria met all client expectations for the project and demonstrated impressive commitment to understanding the core business needs of the client before executing on them. Their team was communicative and hardworking at all times throughout their work.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

When I worked with Postindustria, I was chief product officer at Lux Group, also known as Luxury Escapes.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Postindustria?

Their team developed the ecommerce system that Lux Group runs off of. That includes purchasing options for travel, products, and experiences as well, all of which were developed by Postindustria.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

When I joined the team, we decided that it was time to replace the system that Postindustria had originally developed. We decided to split the platform, so they developed one that was entirely dedicated to travel, as well as one that was dedicated to the products and experiences side of the business.

Their work included everything from wireframing and development on both web and mobile, to the QA testing and management of the project. Once the platforms had been fully built out, they continued to provide maintenance and upgrades as we went along. When I left the company, we had moved some of the work in-house, but their core team stayed fully integrated with ours and continued to provide excellent service.

What is the team composition?

Over the course of their work, we had around twenty different people from their team involved in some aspect of our various products. We had front- and backend developers, mobile developers, QA testers, product owners, and project managers all involved in the work.

How did you come to work with Postindustria?

They were already the agency of record at Luxury Escapes when I joined the company, and they had a great reputation at the company, so it was an easy decision to continue working with them.

How much have you invested with them?

The total cost of the engagement was in the range of a few million dollars.

What is the status of this engagement?

I partnered with their team in my role from August 2016–July 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They really did an excellent job across all different aspects of the platform, which we know because of the level of engagement they had with us throughout the project despite the complexity of the system. They were able to keep the platform running and carrying an incredible level of commerce even while they were implementing the upgrades, which was a huge win for our team.

Especially with legacy systems, there are so many layers that it takes a tremendous amount of work just to understand them, but they demonstrated a complete willingness to simply dive in and break apart each problem until they knew how to fix it and then execute the solution quickly and effectively time and time again. It didn’t even matter what time of day it was, the level of support that they provided to our system was truly remarkable.

How did Postindustria perform from a project management standpoint?

They really felt as though they are part of our in-house team. I remember specific times where despite all of the potential barriers in the way, their project managers would fight to understand the history and operations of each part of our business so that they could properly address the need that we had. I can’t attribute our success to their project managers enough.

We’ve developed great personal relationships with them over the years, to the point where I am still in touch with some of the guys there even though I left the company, and actually the country as well. They were extremely professional and customer-focused at all times, which we really appreciated.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The level of ownership that they take over the product and the solutions that they provide for it is truly unique in an outsourced development team. They care as much about how much it works as you do, and it drives them to work incredibly hard for their clients, which is never something that should be taken for granted.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I think it would have helped if all of their developers spoke English fluently, but they compensated enough with project management that it never caused any problems. Communication is always an issue, and I think given the potential for things to go wrong, we really didn’t have much to complain about.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Make sure you get a good project and product manager who will put the effort into understanding your needs because that played a huge role in making the development go as smoothly as possible. It really is important to have someone on the ground who isn’t just on the tech side who can help answer questions on both sides and understand the business aspects of the relationship.

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 CEO of Giggster.com, a marketplace for filming and photoshoot locations in Los Angeles.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Postindustria?

We hired them right at the beginning before our company was even formed. We needed a prototype for our idea. The main founder, and now chairman of our company, had the idea to create a marketplace for producers to find and book locations online. This would allow them to avoid going through the whole system of agencies, referrals, word of mouth, and knocking on doors. We contracted Postindustria to come up with a small prototype of our marketplace platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Postindustria built a prototype that allowed us to launch and go through a full cycle of iteration and development in order to finish the solution into a working beta. We’ve been working with them ever since, through two major revisions of the prototype.

The features they built include a booking engine, registration, chat messaging function, and backend panel through which we administer our users and locations. They also built our internal SEO engine. Their team used Go for most of the backend of the platform and React for the frontend.

Most recently, they built a native iOS app that packages all the features of the web platform. We’re in the middle of promoting it now.

What is the team composition?

I primarily work with a project manager or project lead on their end, who acts as our remote CTO. There are 7–8 people on his team, whom we work on-and-off with. I also work with their designer, who has a strong impact on the visuals of the finished product.

How did you come to work with Postindustria?

Our founder knew them from a previous project for another company of his. We also had some friends who were very happy with Postindustria’s work. Essentially, they were a referral. I’d also worked for another LA company that had used them and was happy with the work they did.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost at this point is between $750,000–$1 million.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Postindustria in February 2016. We’re still working with them, and we’re closer than ever.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We wouldn’t be a company if it weren't for Postindustria. They’re pretty much our whole development team. Thanks to them, we were able to build a web app that never bugs out and is able to handle hundreds of thousands of visitors a month. It handles close to 1,000 high-value transactions per month, each in the thousands of dollars. The solution is able to process payouts securely.

Our revenue is $10 million, and there are 20 people on our team. When we started the company, there were just two people plus Postindustria as our outsourced development team. We were able to grow quickly and increase our engagement. There’s a lot of excellent stuff that’s come out of this project.

How did Postindustria perform from a project management standpoint?

We have a dedicated point of contact within Postindustria, who’s basically become a team member over the years. We have weekly meetings together to review the roadmap from technical and pure product management standpoints. They help us refine some of our business objectives into technical requirements, and make sure the things we see as being necessary are well-informed, discussed, and decided together.

We don’t view them as a dev shop; Postindustria is really a collaborator and an outsourced brain from a product standpoint. They make sure we’re achieving our business goals. It’s an incubation and consulting approach.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s their attention to detail and quality of work delivered that’s most impressive. Compared to other outsourced development resources and consultancies, there’s a lot of care being brought to Postindustria’s deliverables. We’ve never had a major bug or breakdown of any sort in production. The quality being brought to the table by their team is impressive.

As a startup, we often come up with requirements or product ideas that are half-baked, and we sometimes take things faster than we should. Postindustria has allowed us to shape some of those half-baked ideas into business-ready deliverables.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I’m pretty satisfied with the way they’re operating. The flip side of what I was saying is that they could be faster. Things can always be faster, and I’d rather have something that’s well-built and not have to go over it and fix bugs.

They may not be built-fast-and-break-things mantra people, but this isn’t why we’re hiring them. We’re hiring them to build something that sustains us as a several-million-dollar company and allows us to grow without having to reinvent or rebuild everything once it crashes.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

As with any consulting firm or vendor, the clearer the scope, the easier it’ll be to work with them, and the more satisfied we’ll be with the work they bring. Postindustria is tremendously good at making sure our scope is achievable and satisfies our objectives, but the better-defined our requirements are, the faster they’ll be able to deploy their team and give back results. They have no limitation on the quality of work. Their only limitation will be on the client’s end, for not setting up clear-enough requirements.

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 president of Appmosis, Inc., an app development company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Postindustria?

We needed a really knowledgeable team to assist in building our web and mobile solutions at a fair price.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I’ve done multiple projects with them for various clients, including websites and mobile applications. They’re a full-service company that offers everything from backend server-side applications to frontend website and iOS and Android apps.

One of the products that we built recently was a text messaging service for real estate agents of a title company. They built an entire solution that imported real estate data for new listing monitoring. As soon as a new listing was put up, a subset of real estate agents would be notified within seconds. The team built the web service, the APIs, and the frontend website. They have a Ruby on Rails system for the real estate app that we built. That included multiple stacks and the messaging platform for SMS.

Before that, I built a meditation app with them for both iOS and Android. They built everything, including the design work. For the mobile apps, they used Objective C for the frontend, but I later asked them to rewrite the app in Swift. The backend of the app was done in PHP, the control panel in Laravel.

I’m working on some new ideas for applications, and we'll continue to collaborate on projects together.

What is the team composition?

I work with a team of 2-10 people depending on the project. I work with the project managers and tech leads directly. Sometimes the project manager and tech lead are the same. They have developers, QA engineers, designers, and UX/UI people.

How did you come to work with Postindustria?

They were referred to me by a friend who really liked working with them. I liked them because they offered our required skillsets and seemed knowledgeable. I gave them a small project, and they really knocked it out of the park. They were located in a time zone that was really convenient for me as well. Most of their engineers are math wizards with math and computer science degrees.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent over $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2011, and our engagement didn't end until May 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The meditation apps has generated solid income for us after several versions have been released over the years. They’ve always been on time with projects and on budget.

Their work was always well appreciated by clients. Products met industry standards and were really cutting-edge at times. They had to invent some of the solutions and never sacrificed promptness to do it. When we communicate a problem, a solution is waiting for us the very next day.

How did Postindustria perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management is one of their hidden skills. They have really good project managers that really understand client needs. When I give them a spec or write them a story in Jira, they understand it and anticipate all the potential issues that could arise. I've interacted with 3-4 project managers over the last 10 years, and they’re all really good at understanding client needs and timing.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their promptness and innovativeness of their solutions really impressed us and our clients. They always used the latest technology to provide solutions.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They can always improve on the anticipation of our customers' needs. However, they grow stronger in this year by year. They’ve matured a lot as a company and always hired senior people. There's also a very low turnover rate.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have really good, detailed specifications ready for them and a strong project management system. Let them participate in the design, architecture, and technology selection. Use their skills and ideas proactively.

For what projects/services did your company hire Postindustria?

We hired Postindustria to help us with development of our platform.

What were your goals for this project?

To continue building our platform and innovate to keep moving forward.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I worked with them in my previous job and really appreciated what they brought to the table. They always have been a good partner and when I had the need at my new company, it was a no-brainer to reach out and engage them again.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They helped build out multiple features and sites to help us hit our company objectives and goals.

What was the team composition?

The team is composed of developers and for a while, we also had a QA headcount to help with automation.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The project they are working on is the core product we use for growth of our company.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We use Jira and Slack for all of our communication. We also do zoom calls when needed. One of our requirements to hire was to have developers who can speak/understand English.

So far we haven't had any major issues with communication. However, just like working with any offshore team, there are occasions when there is some confusion due to language.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I really liked the fact when we needed to grow the team, we were able to onboard somebody with few weeks unlike other places where there is sometimes months of wait.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Having flexibility in time schedules to accommodate US time would be nice to have. Even if this was true for some of the developers and not all. I do miss that aspect of working with other teams where we were able to get few developers to work US time.

Feedback summary: 

The technical work and planning performed by Postindustria are absolutely top-notch, consistently blowing client expectations out of the water with both the quality of final products and the dedication with which they are pursued. Their team is energetic and constantly engaged throughout the work.

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 am the president and co-founder of AdRev.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Postindustria?

We needed a technology and engineering team to help run our internal testing systems.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our organization manages over 15 million copyrights for about 5,000 different owners, which includes several trillion rows of data a year. So along with that, there is a massive amount of asset management, royalty accounting, tracking, identification, contextual search, macro scraping, and pretty much anything under the sun of digital asset management that you could possibly imagine.

To construct all of those different functions, they use a variety of different coding languages, including Ruby on Rails, Java, PHP, and a bunch of others. We work with them through ad hoc sprints to build everything from traditional customer dashboards to bespoke, internal lightware technologies that we only use internally to solve the mass-scale data and asset management issues that we have in serving our clients.

What was the team composition?

Our main relationship is with Alex (Senior Account Manager), who runs the rapport and communication with the rest of the crew. I believe there are two full-stack developers who he relies on primarily, as well as a few others handling various specific technologies. In total, the team is about 8-10 people.

How did you come to work with Postindustria?

Their team was recommended to my co-founder by a connection he had who works with startups in the LA area. We had another outsourced development at the time who was incredibly inexpensive but wasn’t quite delivering the quality of work we needed as we grew, so we reached out to Postindustria and grew the collaboration from there.

How much have you invested with them?

In total, we’ve invested millions of dollars into the partnership over the years, and it has been totally worth it.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together around 2009 and the partnership is still ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The technologies that they’ve developed for us often have a massive impact on the business and our bottom line. One lightware system in particular that we implemented in 2018 cost us about $100,000 in dev time over a month and a half and brought in nearly $7 million extra dollars in top-line revenue that year.

They have consistently developed things for our product that impact the bottom line in a really positive way, and we only grow the team because the revenue keeps growing as a result. They scale with our needs, and we’ve only benefitted as a result.

How did Postindustria perform from a project management standpoint?

We bring Alex over stateside to work more closely with us all the time, to the point where he’s actually become a permanent LA resident. These guys really are our team, not just contractors, and that is a big part of the success we’ve had with them. The majority of them are full-stack developers as well, and the skills they’ve been able to bring to the table have been an incredible asset to the work we’ve been able to do.

Overall, their ability to stay on top of our timelines is absolutely excellent. We give them a pretty absurd number of different projects and ad hoc demands, and they have managed it almost without hiccup for a really long period of time.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’ve gotten to spend quite a bit of time with Alex over the years and what I’ve noticed in him isn’t even so much a work ethic as much as it is just an innate desire to code and problem solve. That attitude has permeated the entire organization from the top down, and we’ve benefited massively from their commitment to finding solutions for whatever it is we may be working on.

Their solidarity with us in the concept that ‘if you dream it you can build it’ is another big element of that success. Not having an idea or a concept doesn’t intimidate them, and there’s never been a time where they went away to plan out a project and came back saying they couldn’t do it. I really appreciate the can-do attitude that they bring to the work every single day.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I think any of the issues that we do run into really come more down to things that we could be doing better on our side of the equation than anything that they are doing wrong. We can throw anything at the wall with them and get it built, but that doesn’t make it the most helpful solution they could be providing. I think the more refined goals and needs we provide to them, the better they are going to be able to address those needs.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Getting early facetime with the project leads can change the landscape of the relationship in an unbelievably positive way. It helped us to become much more productive and comfortable working together, and I would encourage anyone else to get to know them in the same way.

Feedback summary: 

Postindustria developed a functional software product for the client. They excelled in terms of quality and timing. Their team is communicative, prompt, and hardworking. 

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 CEO of Swiftdine.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Postindustria?

When we started Swiftdine, we were looking to outsource our talent. We had quite the trial and error process with engineers who simply couldn’t get it done.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our company sought out to enhance the efficiency of restaurant dining spaces. Our product allows users to book reservations and ordering & paying for their food ahead of time.

Postindustria developed our front- and backend software in terms of the restaurant web application that receives orders. They also developed an iOS and Android app. Recently, they created a weightless platform that was added as a feature to the web app.

It’s an SMS communication tool so that the restaurants can communicate with their customers by text and sends out order links. With that new feature, the user can click the URL to go to the menu. So now, we have an online application where users aren’t required to download an app or make an account.

As for technologies, the backend is Node.js, JavaScript for Android, and Swift for iOS. We use a lot of APIs for text messaging tools. It integrates with Twilio, and we use Stripe for payment processing. We also use AWS for hosting.

What is the team composition?

Our main point of contact is Konstantin (CEO). We have a specific person for iOS, one for Android, a project manager that organizes everything, and a QA tester that presents everything to us.

How did you come to work with Postindustria?

We were referred to Postindustria because of the work they did for a different company. Our contact also had issues with engineering and said once they started with Konstantin, it was smooth sailing. They said if we were looking for a group that will accomplish what we want to accomplish, look no further than them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve probably spent around $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement with Postindustria started in August 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s been a great relationship in terms of quality and timing. We haven’t really had any gripes.

We have a solid product that we can trust. They held up their end of the bargain by building us a functional software for our customers.

How did Postindustria perform from a project management standpoint?

It feels like they’re part of the team. We use Slack and email for communication. There is a time zone difference, but it’s not terribly bad. I’m still able to communicate with them. There are never more than four hours that go by without a response from their team.

If there’s a potential issue, they’ll respond promptly. Sometimes I’ll send them a recorded video of an issue, and then they’ll try and recreate the problem before trying to fix it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The quality and speed in which they accomplish certain tools and tasks set them apart. When we went to them, we already had software in place. They suggested to us, from an engineering standpoint, that they start from the start.

We didn’t want to do that because of the cost, but they went ahead and did it anyway. They worked on revamping and retooling the existing build.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It would be interesting if they offered clients the ability to buy out certain contracts. For instance, if we wanted to hire full-time staff, I could offer a buy out because those engineers know the product. That would be a nice feature to have, which they may offer. I’d have to ask.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be as specific and thorough as possible in terms of what you want to be accomplished before you give them the guidelines. Have your designs and wireframes laid out before starting.

Otherwise, you’ll start changing things later on. Know what you’re getting into before you start. There are, of course, a few times where changes have to be made, so the price changes slightly. But I would advise customers to be prepared beforehand.

Postindustria provided clear documentation and took the time to understand business goals and problems. They proactively recommended solutions, making them a reliable and trustworthy partner. Their project management could’ve been more organized, but the team contributed high-quality code.

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 co-founder and CTO of a platform for mobility services, including car sharing and vanpooling.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Postindustria?

We needed a partner to augment our development team while we found a permanent in-house resource.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I provided them with our high-level requirements, and Postindustria’s team executed various dev tasks. The backend developer worked in Python, and the frontend person updated our system. They also provided a DevOps engineer who worked with AWS. Most of their tasks lasted from 1–2 weeks until we found an appropriate internal resource.

What is the team composition? 

They provided three developers for the frontend, backend, and DevOps.

How did you come to work with Postindustria?

A colleague had recommended them, and I’d worked with them in the past. I knew they’d be great for this project, so I hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between $25,000–$50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The partnership lasted from November 2017–February 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We assigned them high-level tasks, which they executed well. They’re good engineers who developed core code for permissions.

How did Postindustria perform from a project management standpoint?

They were well-documented and methodical. We held daily scrum calls to track progress and make sure everyone was on the same page. Because they’re in a different time zone, the communication was sometimes difficult, but we talked frequently enough.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They do good work and are proactive, grasping our needs quickly to optimize the partnership. Instead of just doing what we assigned, they took time to understand the overarching questions to provide effective solutions and better mental modeling.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their chain of command could’ve been more organized; it wasn’t always clear who I was supposed to talk to.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The solution is currently in beta phase, with IQRIA performing implementation and bug fixing. The application generates good results and has garnered interest from several clients. IQRIA focuses less on including additional features to their projects and more on refining those that were specified.

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

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We develop solutions for local businesses to grow using online technologies. It started with web design, and we are moving more and more into applications, and that was one of the projects that IQRIA developed.

What is your position?

I’m the founder and CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with IQRIA?

I had a vision of how to help a client of mine. The project came from a request that a client made, to have his whole sales team answer live chats coming in from the website. They don’t have a call center, and their sales team is mostly on the ground, but they still wanted the opportunity to help visitors in real time wherever they are. That was the whole idea and the project that I started with IQRIA.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

The scope was basically all of the server scripts that have to be run by the application that is integrated into the website. They provided an API to transfer all of the data into it, and then everything after that was done by them. That includes the widget, server set-up, all the testing, and implementing of the functionality. The system mostly runs on Node.js and uses SQL for the database. The API is the open interface, so the actual website where my clients are setting it up is done on PHP.

How did you come to work with IQRIA?

I’ve been using Elance for maybe three to four years now, and I haven’t had the best experience. So this time I only selected firms from Eastern Europe rather than Asian countries. I looked at their portfolio, and I asked them to give me some references, some former clients to talk to. I reached out to those clients, got feedback, and conducted extensive interviews with IQRIA. After that, I felt I was in a good position to make that decision.

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

It was in the range of $3,000 to $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The work took about seven weeks. We started back in August of this year [2015], and went to about mid-September. We’re working on phase two now.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

We’re in the beta phase right now. It’s not publicly available yet, but I do have interest from clients, and we’re putting it on their website. IQRIA is also constantly checking on any bugs themselves, because they are using this solution themselves. In the end, the results were very good, and we’re already working on phase two.

How did IQRIA perform from a project management standpoint?

They use JIRA for tracking, and they’re very professionally set-up in the backend.

What distinguishes IQRIA from other providers?

The reason I chose to work with IQRIA is that they understand and embrace the lean startup methodology, which was a first for me. It might seem counter-intuitive that they focus on delivering less features, but those features are quality, rather than trying to upsell a client on all the additional features that they can think of. That makes it very honest.

Is there anything IQRIA could have improved or done differently?

They’re a small team. I was talking to Constantine, who is basically the CTO, rather than talking to the developers themselves. That was fine for me, but I’m not sure how scalable that model is going to be for them. That might be an area where they could improve, in terms of expanding the team.

One constructive piece of feedback would be to give all their clients access to JIRA. I requested it, so that I can access any bug reports and add my own comments. It may be helpful for them to set that up for all clients.

Feedback summary: 

IQRIA delivered an MVP that performs according to the specifications. The team maintained open communication throughout the development and provided excellent customer support after the application was completed. Furthermore, the development was clean, with only a few bugs which were quickly fixed.

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

BACKGROUND

Please provide a description of your company. 

We are a bootstrapping startup that helps massage therapists retain their clients through automated rebooking systems.

What is your role at the company?

I am co-founder and responsible for the specifications of our technology, and getting it built by the right developers. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was the business challenge that you were trying to address when you approached IQRIA?

One of our biggest challenges, as a bootstrapped startup, is to have quality development at affordable prices and to have a developer who you can communicate with readily to understand our product and develop it in a lean methodology, rather than traditional full-scale development.

What were your company’s business goals for the project?

Our goal was to develop an MVP [minimum viable product] at an affordable price that we could take to market to generate income and gain feedback so that we could then know what to develop in our scalable product. 

SOLUTION

Can you talk about the scope of the project?

We needed a product to record available times for therapists on a calendar interface and then email these available appointments to clients with matching preferences of day, time, and service. The client could then simply click in the email to secure the appointment they wanted, finally both the client and the clinic would receive notification in a confirmation email.

What was your process for selecting IQRIA with which to work?

IQRIA applied to a job posting we listed on one of the large sourcing sites. IQRIA stood out from the rest of the applications in their professionalism, and how they approached the job listing. When I contacted them, Konstantin [Mirin, CEO at IQRIA] took a lot of time to understand what we were trying to build, and produced a few mockups for us as a part of his bid. This was well beyond any of the other competing applications, and we were very impressed with both his dedication and his grasp of what we were trying to build.

Can you give a sense of the size of the project in dollar terms or personnel work hours?

The full project we were trying to develop was around $20,000, but this was way outside of our pre-revenue budget. IQRIA worked with us, and ended up developing an MVP [minimum viable product] for us, which costed only $4,000. We were ecstatic about this solution.

When was the project completed?

The project was completed in December 2014. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What were the results of the project, and are there any metrics you can share?

The project was a success. IQRIA delivered a very robust and impressive MVP that we are now preparing for taking to the marketplace with landing pages. It was delivered on time and close to budget.

How did IQRIA perform?

IQRIA performed extremely well. They were very open to communication, listened closely to what we wanted in the scope of the project, and delivered well above expectations. Any bugs, of which there weren’t many at all, were quickly fixed. For handover, IQRIA worked with me closely to ensure I could manage the system myself and looked after me with fantastic customer service.

When working with them, was there anything unique or special about them compared to other companies that you may have worked with?

I would say the time and effort and personal connection with Konstantin as he works to come up with a solution that fits the scope of the project while conserving budget is something you can’t find very easily.

Looking back on the project, is there any area that they could improve or you would do differently?

I would say overall they did an impressive job, and there really isn't too much I would change.
