The Review
Feedback summary: 

Eager to provide quality options, they work effectively regardless of project size or stature. They are instrumental in providing key features and are conscientious of market trends. Each project is delivered on time, and they have never missed a milestone. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

BrokerBay provides operational software for real estate brokers. The company’s two major components include a marketplace that resembles an MLS [multiple listing service], and the operational efficiencies of an actual brokerage. We’ve been in business for about 18 months. I’m the co-founder and CTO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Quantum Mob?

We have been growing within a very specific market niche, but lacked the appropriate development resources. Hiring a full-time development team was extremely difficult, so we wanted to work with an outside agency.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We give them a variety of tasks, from small features and bug fixes within the product, to large stand-alone modules. We outline the necessary business requirements, wireframe them, and set our monthly budget caps. Then we take them the pieces and they determine what is feasible within our financial and timeline constraints.

We work a lot within an angular Mongo 1.4 Node.JS, specifically Sails.JS, for the majority of our systems and the frontend build. One of the bigger modules they work on operates like Google Hangouts or Facebook Messenger, but we’re able to integrate it directly into our platform and spin it as a stand-alone feature. They took the majority of the technical initiative after we provided our projected business direction for it.

What is the team dynamic?

We have a good rapport, so I speak with the developers directly. We work with one to three team members, depending on the engagement at hand, without any dedicated project manager.

How did you come to work with Quantum Mob?

I worked with Eric [Co-Founder & Head of Operations, Quantum Mob] and Erich [Co-Founder & Head of Technology, Quantum Mob] at my previous company. I knew we could trust them and the quality of their work, so we decided to give them a shot.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began to work together in August 2017. December is a slow month, so we will take a short break and reconvene early in 2018 to figure out our next steps.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We don’t have a fluid way of quantifying the features’ impact on our revenue, but we wouldn’t be as far as we are without their help. They were instrumental in our instant messaging feature. Brokers don’t usually implement functionality outside of slow times in the season, so releasing that feature made sure we’d have at least a month of revenue.

The quality of their work is great. They’re as concerned with our quality as we are, and they help us figure out best practices for a startup like ours. Some of their suggestions for frontend tools help us identify and eliminate bugs, and they help a lot with the actual client environment and setup.

How did Quantum Mob perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicate frequently, and they check in every couple of days to clarify requirements. In our kickoff sections, we really broke the process down into understandable pieces, and they gave us great feedback for improvements. We mainly communicate via Slack or phone, and use email for things like invoices. Their office is near ours, so it’s easy to go meet with them in person.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re a small shop, but they really hustle effectively to deliver the product. They don’t take our company’s financial size into account, and really try to find the best solutions to help both our businesses. They do a great job and really put us forward.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Because they do their best to appease and prioritize all of their clients, they sometimes run out of time.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Potential customers have two options. They can either bring a specific set of requirements to the project, or Quantum Mob can help brainstorm. Sometimes laying out a timeline is difficult, but if you can set a schedule, success and measurable milestones are almost guaranteed.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Their exceptionally skilled team effectively handled the integration of the front-end and back-end software, while working autonomously most of the time. They presented the complicated data in a form that is understandable to most users, which will allow the client to reach more customers. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the managing partner at Temagami Systems, a company that provides software for utilities to enable their delivery of conservation programs in Ontario.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Quantum Mob?

Our core development team was experiencing some challenges, so we were looking for a company with expertise in software development to work with our team on the user interface components of our system.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We wanted our front-end software to integrate with our back-end software, with which we already support 35+ utilities. They have very good UI developers and data experts, who supported our efforts at various stages of the project – from the prototyping stage all the way to the launch. Our end product is a web app: it's primarily a web-based solution, but it has responsive components such as compatibility with a mobile device. There is also some offline compatibility.

We had to deal with a vast level of complexity – not only in the data, but in how the data is presented to customers in a simple way. We wanted our customers of any skill set to understand the data, and Quantum Mob helped us find a way to make this happen. They work in a rapid and agile way and got to the core of what we were trying to achieve right at the beginning.

What is the team dynamic? 

We worked with 5–6 people.

How did you come to work with them?

One of our developers recommended them. After we interviewed Quantum Mob, we saw that they had more experience than our core team, so we basically had Quantum Mob replace some of our core team and become a supportive entity within the development system. 

How much have you invested with them?

We spent close to $160,000–$170,000.

What is the status of this engagement? 

We started working with them in May 2017 and it's an ongoing collaboration.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We just launched the system for one of our utilities, so we're still waiting for feedback. In this case, we're competing against the government system, in which completing an application takes 20–25 minutes. In our system, an application takes on average 6 minutes. Our metrics will be measured by how many new customers we are able to acquire.

We're dealing with a very complex project, and they've been very responsive in terms of fixing the issues that have emerged. They work autonomously about 90% of the time, and we finish the final 10% together.

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

We use Slack as our main communication tool with all of our team. We also use GET system, which is our agile where we have our backlog and can see what everyone is working on.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They're a small group of very talented people who actually care about delivering. They're looking for our best interest in a significant way. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Before you engage with them, have a relatively good idea of what you want to do to be respectful of their time. They're high-quality individuals and very fair in their billing. Their time is too valuable to be wasted.
