The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m a Web Application Security Researcher and CEO of a B2B service that allows checking pass leaks from various sources.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Purrweb?

I hired Purrweb to create a user friendly interface for my web product. (UX)

What were your goals for this project?

My goal is to build an MVP and test my idea. And design is the first step to that goal.

SOLUTION

How did you select Purrweb?

I was impressed by Purrweb’s Portfolio (on dribbble.com) and their expertise at UI/UX design, so I wanted my product to be the same quality. They also came back to me with the response very quickly and the communication was great from the very beginning.

Describe the project in detail.

Purrweb has created the UI and UX design for my product. They’d started with the project mindmap and wireframes, made sure the user flows are correct and nothing is missed. Then they came up with the visual part and applied it to all the screens.

What was the team composition?

At first I contacted Sergey, who collected my ideas and showed me examples. There were 1 designer and 1 Project Manager working on my project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The most complex part of my project was the information visualisation. As I’m a tech-guy, it was tough for me to imagine how it should look like. The guys from Purrweb have helped me with that and the visualization they created will help my future users to easily navigate through the platform.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

I love my assigned project manager, she is nice and communicates clearly. I was always aware of the project current stage, we had regular video calls and feedback sessions.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Purrweb has an impressive portfolio of really beautiful UI/UX works. I also love the way they were working with my feedback and comments on the work done. The improvements were quick and the result is perfect.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I’d probably prefer the designer to attend the video calls together with me and PM. On the other hand, I understand it could be time consuming and distract the designer from their daily tasks.

We presented Purrweb with product wireframes and Purrweb turned the wireframes into a product and brand.

Purrweb helped us evolve the product design, create our branding and provided the design implementation specification for building our product.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the Chief Operations at Informatel. Informatel has been a leader in the telecommunications sector for over 30 years, helping clients connect with their customers through proven and emerging technologies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We hired the Purrweb team to design a web platform for building SMS/email campaigns for people with little or no coding experience, especially for small business owners who want to link a marketing campaign to a website and promote themselves by increasing the traffic load of new customers.

Our goal was to create a web-based service for people with little or no coding experience, with a user-friendly interface, which would be a more accessible, convenient, and transparent solution than the existing alternatives. As for Purrweb, our goal was to create UI/UX design, because we already had a development team working on the project.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor and what were the deciding factors?

I published a UI/UX design job post on Upwork, and received about 50 bids in several hours, however I stopped at Purrweb without even shortlisting others - I liked their portfolio and was happy about the fact that they had solid experience designing apps with CRM features.

We signed an NDA and scheduled a call after a few messages, and discussed my ideas and their approach in more detail. They offered me to start with a test contract to check our working relations. By the end of the test period, I was happy with everything, so we continued working together.

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

They’ve created the UI/UX design from scratch, based on the list of competitor apps which I’ve pointed out for reference. Their manager combined my ideas and competitors’ best practices, and together with the designer they transformed it into an outstanding and unique concept.

We even extended our contract and decided to add a landing page builder to the project. It was nice working with the Purrweb team, due to their great communication skills and perfect working ethics. They provided the highest quality deliverables, always on time, along with detailed reports after every update.

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

  • 1 Project Manager
  • 1 Designer
RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

PurrWeb provided us with a complete service solution for designing our customer-facing platform, so we can launch our platform as soon as we finish the development part. We’ll come back to this team for further enhancements and design of new features, and I would recommend them to everyone who looks for an awesome UX/UI team.

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

The work was organized in weekly sprints, and we’ve had video conferences after every sprint to track progress and share ideas. Thanks to the product manager's presence on the project, I didn’t have to worry about short-term daily management at all, which was great. However, I’ve always had the full picture of what’s going on.

They provided brilliant results, the working process was transparent, and their punctuality was perfect - so I would say that Purrweb’s management effectiveness is 100%.

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

They are extremely talented, as well as upfront and honest. Their attention to detail, and care on a whole, was of the highest level - Purrweb is a very client-oriented team.

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

Nothing to add from my experience - everything was well managed, well executed, and communication was solid.

Our goal was to build an application with a user-friendly interface from scratch, which would be a more accessible, convenient and transparent solution than the existing competitor apps.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

By the end of the test period, I was happy with everything, so we continued working further in the same direction.

Describe the project in detail.

They created the UI/UX design from scratch. I described my ideas to the Project Manager, and she translated it to the designers, who processed it with their own vision and came up with a great concept. We are working with Purrweb almost a year and this year showed us how difficult it is to find the right design provider and how easy and efficient it is to work if you have one.

What was the team composition?

1 Project Manager + 1 Designer

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Design is finished and is already in production. Purrweb design team has created an awesome design for our project, which includes convenient interface logic for users, and beautiful visual style. I am 100% sure that working with Purrweb will make the journey to your goals easy and secure, just like it did for us.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They invited project manager to the project, and the team worked in weekly sprints. By the end of each sprint they provided results and detailed reports, and we discussed our progress on video calls with screen shared. Everything was perfect, on-time and well communicated.

The Purrweb team is very customer-oriented. They keep deadlines and have perfect work ethics and communication skills - I really enjoyed our collaboration! And most importantly, they provided the results of highest quality, so I’ll surely come back to them with other projects in the future.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There is always something to improve, but I cant recap anything major.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm CEO of the company. I'm fully responsible for business development strategy, new employees onboarding and financial part of the business. I'm also heavily involved into the process of negotiations on the next investment rounds and regular communication with current investors.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Purrweb?

I needed a team who could build a product from scratch (we had preliminary design and name though). It was important for me that the vendor could provide both design and development services. So, that's basically where Purrweb were helpful with.

What were your goals for this project?

My goal was to come up with such a solution that could be simple and easy to use, but at the same time really functional. UI/UX design was one of the top priorities as the app is supposed to be used by tech savvy audience.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I came across dribbble website, was searching some potential designs that could be used for my app. By this criteria I shortlisted around 5 companies from different regions like Ukraine, India, Russia, US. I left requests for all of the companies and Purrweb replied first, we had a quick call with them for 20 minutes and after the breakdown and estimate I decided to move forward with them. There were no second thoughts even after other companies replied to my request.

Describe the project in detail.

Once I selected the vendor, we initiated the UI/UX stage, during which we came up with a full design of the mobile app. Then Purrweb assigned the development team and went through the process in short iterations with regular feedback and test builds that I could play with on my own phone.

What was the team composition?

I communicated with manager Elena mostly. But behind the scene there were also a team of devs, I think it consisted of 3 devs and 1 QA manager. There was also a designer. In case of any urgent questions I was also able to contact Purrweb's COO, that was really convenient in a couple of cases.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

There is no much success yet and we are going to release the app in the upcoming weeks. But at this stage I was already able to do a couple of great things: 1) I was able to raise the 2nd round of investments (around $350k) 2) Also agreed on a pilot project with Moscow transport providers to place our 100 powerbank renting kiosks at subway stations around the city.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We communicated a lot. The communication happened via phone and telegram, I received regular updates. At one point, my wife even started suspecting me that there is too much communication!

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I learned a lot about the mobile app development process. At the same time I was very proactive in providing feedback for UX optimisation and guys were actively applying my comments. In the past I had experience collaborating with other development vendors and I know how difficult it could be for a team to accept comments/feedback. This time I felt easy and openness in terms of accepting and implementing most of the suggestions.

Are there any areas for improvement?

It's a tough question. I can't remember anything I can right away come up with. I loved the flexibility Purrweb team provided.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder of the startup company mobile lifestyle company. It is a mobile app used to encourage safe and effective practice habits to avoid performance-related musculoskeletal disorders (PRMD) in musicians.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Purrweb?

We needed to build an app prototype to test out the concept of the app.

What were your goals for this project?

To get a working app prototype to start testing out features users would find functional.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I used UpWork to select vendors for this project. I ended up choosing Purrweb because they had experience in developing health and music-related mobile apps already.

Describe the project in detail.

Once we selected this vendor, we agreed to first create a wireframe of the app's main feature, which was a timer with breaks and scheduled blocks for practicing. I gave documents regarding app contents, a very rough wireframe, and performance injuries. In the end, I got an app prototype (both for Android and iOS) which included the timer feature, as well as a simple placeholder for the exercises and stretches.

What was the team composition?

Throughout the project, I spoke primarily to the UI/UX designer (for app design and structure), the project manager, and the business manager (for financials). I would typically meet with them once a week on Skype or Zoom for updates, and daily updates would be made to me by the project manager via Skype.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Although the project is still a working progress, I've currently received positive feedback from users who have tried out the app prototype.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The project manager has given me daily updates regarding the app development process, Additionally, the UI/UX designer was clear their communications, and was quick to respond to any questions and/or suggestions I may have. Overall, the workflow was very effective and clear.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed by their communication and in-depth knowledge of app development. They were problem-solving orient and very patient whenever problems came up.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Again, everything can be done more effectively and efficiently, but I was very happy with the process and result of this project.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder of a lead generation company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Purrweb?

We engaged Purrweb because we were looking for web developers with experience building SaaS platforms.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We provided Purrweb with specifications of the items and functionality we needed within our platform, and their team has been responsible for the full development of the product. They primarily work with Ruby on Rails.

 What is the team composition?

We’ve worked with two project managers, one lead developer, and a group of 3–4 junior developers.

How did you come to work with Purrweb?

We found them on Upwork.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent more than $100,000 to this point.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in the middle of 2017, and our product launched in January 2018. We’ve worked together on an ongoing basis since then.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have thousands of daily users on our platform. It’s a successful product and has helped our company become profitable.

How did Purrweb perform from a project management standpoint?

Depending on the needs of the project at any given time, we have weekly or biweekly meetings to discuss our progress or challenges. Purrweb has proven to be available whenever we need them despite being overseas and working within a different time zone.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Unlike other developers I’ve worked with, Purrweb genuinely cares for our project. They’re a true partner in the sense that they’re invested in our relationship and making our product a success.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, there hasn’t been anything that I’ve disliked. When I compare Purrweb to past development partners, they have exceeded my expectations.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Selfishly, I’d like to keep Purrweb to myself, but their team is fantastic, and I’d highly recommend them to anyone looking for a web development team.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The app is going through beta testing, and user feedback has been mostly positive. Purrweb established a collaborative and effective process from the beginning, while their expertise and responsiveness to feedback helped them deliver a top-notch product.

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 a fitness application.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Purrweb?

We were looking for a vendor to help us develop our MVP.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They've designed and developed two applications for us, one of which is intended for trainers and another one–for clients. They've done the design using Zeplin and Marvel and then, they moved on to development. We have React Native on the frontend and Node.js–on the backend. Everything is a Lambda AWS infrastructure. The app helps trainers connect with new clients. For clients, it's a fitness tracking system that also allows them to manage their workouts.

What is the team composition?

I've worked directly with Anton (CEO, Purrweb). I've also worked with their developers and a project manager, who facilitated the communication between our team and theirs.

How did you come to work with Purrweb?

I first started working with their designer, who later introduced me to the rest of Purrweb’s team. They had project managers that were part of their team, and all the team members worked together. We liked their team structure, so we decided to work with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent about $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in February 2018, and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We've done our first public beta launch, so our app is available in the App Store. Our client-side application is well into development and we're hoping to launch it within the next few weeks. The feedback from users has been generally positive and we're trying to address any shortcomings quickly.

How did Purrweb perform from a project management standpoint?

It's a fairly sophisticated project, so we have multiple ways of communicating. We have biweekly meetings and we use Trello to do most of the planning and manage daily tasks. In addition, we use Slack to communicate with their development team.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have many different resources under one umbrella and work very collaboratively on the technical side. They're very knowledgeable and respond to our requests quickly.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We had some communication challenges at the beginning, but we've resolved them successfully. At this point, they can work independently very effectively, so we just need to provide our input.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have a clear vision of what you want to accomplish and communicate your technical requirements. Also, do things in iterations and provide your feedback. They're very responsive to feedback, so being involved in the development process is critical.
