Feedback summary: 

The team delivered an excellent platform that effectively addressed the company’s requirements. They did thorough research and were invested in the project at all times, while communicating well and managing the work smoothly through Asana.

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 head of service for a biotechnology company that works for pharmaceutical companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RabIT software engineering?

We wanted to automatize our documentation and inventories.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’re developing software to automate our work. We asked them to build an inventory system for us with different calculations within it that we can use to provide our services for other companies. They use Java for the work.

There are six modules. One is the test article receipt module, which is an inventory for our test articles that are provided by our sponsors—it’s a database for these. There’s a CRP module that is a contract creator between our company and the sponsor companies, as well as a lab book module, which is where we’d started with the development.

What is the team composition?

There’s a sales manager, a project manager, and four developers.

How did you come to work with RabIT software engineering?

We were looking for software development companies and had a chat with four, then properly interviewed RabIT and one other. We chose RabIT because they were more flexible, easy to understand, and more transparent than the others.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in March 2019 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The quality is really great. They really got deep into the topic of our work in order to understand it properly. So far, the program we received from them is working perfectly.

My company was bought by a bigger one and they decided not to work further with RabIT because they have an in-house team. I was sorry about it because I enjoyed every moment of the collaboration. They still help if any problems that arise. We’re working on another project with them that is similar, but unfortunately this one was stopped because of the in-house team that took it over.

How did RabIT software engineering perform from a project management standpoint?

The development process was very transparent and flexible. I could look through all the work that was done by them through Asana. We also communicate via email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I was amazed by their enthusiasm about the project. They normally work for financial companies and were really excited about working with a biotechnology company. They really got into the details about our work and I was amazed that they enjoyed it so much.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I wasn’t dissatisfied with anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Using Asana is really useful for communication with them.

Feedback summary: 

RabIT Software Engineering exceeded the client’s expectations in delivering a stellar app that’s polished and user-friendly. The team provided excellent guidance, patiently walking the client through all developments. Their communication, friendliness, and organization all blew the client away.

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 founded an app that’s for female travelers to find other female travel companions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RabIT Software Engineering?

I was seeking the development of my app. While I know the business side, I needed technological support in creating the product.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I met with RabIT twice to kick off the development. They were very pleasant informal meetings where we just threw around ideas. Other than providing them with the desired color scheme, I took a very hands-off approach where I left most of the design elements up to them. I wanted the app to have a straightforward and user-friendly design and that is exactly what they have come up with.

During the process, they were very patient in making sure that I understood all developments. They kept me in the loop, so if there were any aspects that I wanted to change, they’d fix it right away. It was an active conversation throughout the engagement.

The development for the cross-platform app is completed. They’ve tested the product, and now they’re uploading it to different app stores.

What is the team composition?

I was working with a project manager, an IT person, and 2–3 developers.

How did you come to work with RabIT Software Engineering?

I had the idea for the app while I was traveling in Asia. I engaged with a company while I was abroad, but I ended up having a bad experience. After returning to Hungary, I was seeking a company that was both affordable and professional and found RabIT through a google search.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in July of 2019 and we wrapped up in September.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’m extremely satisfied with the app that they’ve created from scratch, which has received great feedback from others for its function. While one might have low expectations for an MVP, the app they’ve created looks very polished. I’m really happy with the product.

How did RabIT Software Engineering perform from a project management standpoint?

I really appreciated how professional they were. My project manager was extremely patient and made sure that I was up to date on all of their progress. All of the team members maintained continuous contact with me, so the communication couldn’t have been smoother.

I was also pleasantly surprised that a local company could be so talented and organized. I had very high expectations from working with companies overseas—Denmark, in particular—but RabIT provided me with such excellent service, so I’m so happy I found them.   

What did you find most impressive about them?

I really enjoyed their bilingualism. We’d have conversations where we switched from Hungarian to English, which was really cool. Other than that, I’d emphasize their communication abilities. Since it was my first time developing an app, they really walked me through the entire process in a way that a layperson could understand.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I really can’t think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It’s very important that you know what you want your product to be. While I didn’t have any design ideas, I knew what functionalities I was looking for. Have a clear vision of your product before engaging a company like RabIT so that they can do their job perfectly.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-founder of DRAFTHEDGE, a sports financial trading platform. People can trade futures on athletes in the same manner as traditional commodities. It’s a tradeable product that will settle to cash once that contract expires at the end of the game.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RabIT software engineering?

We needed a company to develop an iOS and Android app for our platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed our app for iOS and Android. The app currently does football and we’re now working on baseball and golf. We have 1,000 testers for the solution.

What is the team composition?

We have one main point of contact. The team has scaled up and down from 1–4 developers depending on need.

How did you come to work with RabIT software engineering?

Our team had engaged another vendor, but the relationship was not successful because the partnership lacked communication and solution didn’t compute correctly for our platform. We then received a recommendation from one of RabIT software engineering’s past clients. They had a positive experience with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in August 2017 and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve done a good job with testing, having identified issues before RabIT software engineering implements them in the product. User feedback comprises questions about monetary deposits. Overall, the team is accessible and responsive to bugs and requests.

How did RabIT software engineering perform from a project management standpoint?

Communication between the teams is great. RabIT software engineering accommodates the time difference; I can reach them day or night. They meet deadlines and have an ideal corporate culture. What’s more, the team is professional and maintains a smooth rapport with our side.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team provides detailed sprint updates and makes the coding work transparent. We always on the same page as them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. They’re doing a very good job.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

The scope and requests should be very detailed—especially for the UI—even if that means being repetitive with communication.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RabIT software engineering?

We needed to build an e-commerce solution that would benefit both our customers and our internal team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We provided RabIT software engineering with a collection of wireframes. Using Java, the team developed a SaaS e-commerce solution. When complete, the platform will automate our internal workflows and processes. It’ll also act as a customer service and order management tool.

What is the team composition?

Our project coordinator is our main point of contact, but we’ve also interacted with the RabIT software engineering’s owner. They provided a QA team to review all of their work.

How did you come to work with RabIT software engineering?

We found them on Clutch. We were looking for vendors located in Hungary, and RabIT software engineering had the best reviews within that specific market.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in April 2018, and we’re finishing up the project. I estimate we’ve completed about 80% of the total scope.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a product manager for figo GmbH, a financial services company. We are developing an API for the aggregation of different financial sources, mostly in Europe. The API allows companies to implement multi-banking features in their own applications, enabling customers to connect with and aggregate data from different banks.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RabIT?

We needed a reliable partner that would support us in further developing our platform in Hungary.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They supported us actively in Hungary and also at the core of our platform in topics such us Demobank implementations. They will keep supporting us further in the operations of our platform.

What is the team composition?

We worked with two software developers and a project manager. Their CEO became quite involved in the project as well. Team size fluctuated depending on needs, and we even stopped work at one point.

How did you come to work with RabIT?

A lot of teams were hesitant to engage with us when we pitched the challenging idea. Location and work quality were the most important factors in determining who to collaborate with to develop our platform.

I searched Google for different software development houses in Hungary. From my initial conversation with RabIT, it was clear that they were completely invested. They liked the challenge we presented them. They were even able to support us in other countries.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in May 2017 and our work is ongoing. We are currently launching our scrapers for the Hungarian market. We intend to have a long-term collaboration with them, so they can continue helping us operate the platform.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They've had a huge impact on our business. We manage many other external teams in various countries and across other projects, tasked with the same role as them. Yet, RabIT has been our number one team in terms of delivery speed and quality. They went beyond the initial scope by contributing to other parts of our platform.

How did RabIT perform from a project management standpoint?

They worked with us to define our collaboration; they increased or decreased team size based on our project needs. They were flexible with work schedules, allowing for a dynamic collaboration.

I led the project internally. RabIT was the easiest team to deal with for managing priorities and delivery deadlines. Status update calls that took 30–60 minutes with other teams, took five minutes with them. Everything was delivered on time and as we expected.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They go the extra mile. They were always transparent with workflow and tasks, but the effort they put in truly set them apart from other agencies.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Our collaboration with them was one of the best we had for this project. I haven’t had a single bad experience while working with them.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

You don’t have to think twice about working with them. Stay dedicated and transparent throughout the collaboration. RabIT welcomed the constant feedback loop we maintained. Whenever they delivered good work, we let them know.

RabIT displayed professionalism and dedication from the outset, making them a trustworthy outsourcing partner. They have adapted well to the client's project management practices and diligently track their progress. Overall performance has been very impressive.

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 are a digital and content marketing agency that founded seven years ago. We're located in the Los Angeles area. I am the president and CEO of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RabIT Software?

We were looking for someone to develop a technology platform which we had envisioned a few years ago. We started out with a vendor who didn't meet our expectations. We searched for an alternative and identified RabIT Software as a contender.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

During the kick-off, RabIT Software's role was to review the work which had been done up until that point, assessing the technical quality of the code. Through the audit, RabIT Software came back with a list of insights and other good information. We engaged them further, with the initial step being the setup of our environment. I was fairly impressed with RabIT Software's understanding of enterprise-level development infrastructures, which includes everything from sprint planning to repository management, and automated testing in development and production environments.

We began the process of refactoring parts of the codebase, planning future development architectures, and establishing timelines and goals, getting the project underway in a structured and manageable fashion. All features have been dictated by our agency.

RabIT Software has a proficiency in database architecture design and frontend development, including AngularJS. Their CEO is a very good architect and was able to select languages and coordinate the development activities very well.

We have worked with what could be considered a lead software architect from RabIT Software's side. We've also used a quality assurance lead and two developers.

How did you come to work with RabIT Software?

We reached out to a list of vendors, both international and domestically. RabIT Software put a lot of effort into the initial assessment of our project and codebase. Oftentimes, we found that vendors can turn out to be great once we start paying them, but prior to the contractual engagement, they won't put in a lot of effort into the project. This is what stood out to me with RabIT Software. They had a level of commitment to analyzing and communicating what we had, what needed to be done, and why it mattered, even before we paid any money. As a business person with a basic level of technical expertise, I require a level of trust before selecting a vendor. I needed to see that the company put in an effort for getting our business, and RabIT Software was certainly willing and able to do that.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with RabIT Software in February 2016. The amount of work has fluctuated due to budgetary reasons, but our collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

I don't have customer feedback, but senior-level developers and CTOs have occasionally looked at our sprints, confirming what is referred to as "velocity" in the development world. They confirmed that the work is acceptable. We need to be reasonable with expectations when offshoring development and paying a quarter of the local cost. 

The same goes for the expectations around involvement. The challenge faced by most people when offshoring development is that they underestimate the difficulties of what the process is. They also overestimate the ability of offshore developers to think and act on their own. This is not a fault of RabIT Software or any vendor, but rather a general misunderstanding which I've had myself when I was beginning to understand development. With RabIT Software's help, I've come to understand that requirements and schematic documentation are very important.

How did RabIT Software perform from a project management standpoint?

RabIT Software does a good job in meeting my expectations. Not having an in-house project manager, this responsibility becomes mine. When I plan out what needs to be done, I also have to manage the work, but RabIT Software has done a good job of taking my ideas and features, breaking them into proper tasks and sprints and communicating with me. RabIT Software is incredibly diligent at marking off, commenting, and checking elements in it. They're committed to updating when things happen. Compared to my previous experience, RabIT Software is a night-and-day difference.

What did you find most impressive about RabIT Software?

RabIT Software is very good at communication and documentation. When we're spending money on the work, we need to know what we're getting, and RabIT Software has done a great job of ensuring that I knew what was being completed.

Are there any areas RabIT Software could improve?

Not really. Like with any development project, there were times when we underestimated or overestimated what we could complete, due to unforeseen issues, but I can't really think of anything. I've been thoroughly impressed with RabIT Software.

This is the main reason for giving a review on RabIT Software. I don't think that I've done this for any vendor in my life, not because I'm mean, but because it takes a special company for me to set aside time for a glowing review. Very few people in this world are worthy of that.

BACKGROUND

I'm the owner of a San Francisco-based company called My Personal Language Tutor.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RabIT software engineering?

At first, all we wanted was a daily statistical spreadsheet – a daily summary of activity from students, teachers, and finance.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I wrote a specification of what we wanted, and they wrote a Java program that ran every night and went through our database, gathering statistics and tabulating those statistics it in an Excel spreadsheet. The various tabs included things like number of students, number of teachers, number of paid and unpaid accounts, number of lessons in French, and number of lessons in German – statistics like that.

We've done a number of similar reporting projects of the same style with RabIT through the years, including changes to the Excel spreadsheet. They've also done some error diagnosis and correction. More recently, they are doing a code review of a company we are thinking of acquiring. Just today [September 2016], I gave them a video streaming project.

How did you come to work with RabIT software engineering?

We got a personal referral from a colleague of mine in Russia. Since the daily reporting project was not an emergency, we thought, "Let's try it out."

How much have you invested with RabIT software engineering?

We've spent somewhere between $6,000 and $10,000 working with them – not counting the projects we've done in the last month, which have been bigger. We've just started two new big projects with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with RabIT about four years ago. The spreadsheet project was completed in a month. We've obviously done other projects with them since then.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

The statistical spreadsheet was the best thing as far as doing something new. It increased our financial collections from nonpaying customers because it highlighted accounts receivable, bad credit cards, and things like that.

How did RabIT software engineering perform from a project management standpoint?

It's difficult to say because all of our projects have been small, taking less than three or four weeks, so they didn't need much project management. We love these guys, but I can't comment on their project management because the sort of work we have been doing with them didn't require much management.

What did you find most impressive about RabIT software engineering?

Their English is excellent, which is helpful when working with an offshore agency. The programs they've done have worked. They are very versatile. They've got a wide range of skills – mobile skills, video skills, and so forth. They haven't done anything that will win them the Nobel Prize, but they've done good, solid work, which is what we wanted.

Are there any areas RabIT software engineering could improve?

No. When we got started, we needed to work out a bit of coordination but none since they've been working with us. Everything goes along quite smoothly. We give them projects. They do them. We finish them, and we pay them. They're a good, solid small software company. I've never done a large, complex project with them. That doesn't mean they couldn't do it, but I haven't done one.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

My company is an online tech company that enables online shops to work with each other and bring customers to each other. We provide a distinctive technology and a network where businesses can meet with each other. It's a relatively young company, and I am one of the cofounders. I look after many things – mainly our marketing and sales.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RabIT software engineering?

At the time, we were building our proof of concept about a specific piece of the technology. We had a plan that was sketched out by our technical lead, and we were looking for a developer that could implement it according to our instructions.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

RabIT software engineering provided programming service. They wrote code in accordance to our specifications. They provided ideas when there was an opportunity for streamlining or adding functionalities. When they needed to deviate from the initial plan, we discussed the changes before implementing them. The program was mainly in Java and PHP as programming languages.

We worked with one person from RabIT software engineering, with occasional help from another person from their team. They were not in charge of anything but the delivery of the specific pieces of the program that we asked them to deliver. They were not doing the sales or the installations directly or anything like that.

How did you come to work with RabIT software engineering?

We had a selection process that included a couple of interviews and a test. The test was a portion of the program that we had to develop. After a couple of days of development, the participants would need to submit the results of their work. We would then analyze it and select people based on that output.

How much have you invested with RabIT software engineering?

We have invested $50,000 to $200,000 with RabIT software engineering.

What is the status of this engagement?

It's been a very fruitful collaboration that has spanned at least 14 months. The project began in August 2014 and has concluded recently [in 2016]. We started with a time and materials contract, and then we moved into a monthly agreement.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

We had a very good working experience with RabIT software engineering. It's hard to tie their involvement, which we are satisfied with, to success metrics for the business. RabIT software engineering was part of a larger project that included delivering to clients and so on. It's hard to quantify their productivity.

How did RabIT software engineering perform from a project management standpoint?

RabIT software engineering performed very well in terms of project management. They used our tracking system and provided helpful feedback for improving tools or processes. Since we are not a huge company, we didn't have unreasonable processes.

What did you find most impressive about RabIT software engineering?

Our collaboration with RabIT software engineering was the longest time that we worked with a single contractor. They delivered what we required. We were impressed with the company's attitude, mindset, and integrity. They accommodated requests when compatible with the rest of the priorities. Also, the main person who was working with us was versatile and skilled.

Are there any areas RabIT software engineering could improve?

At one point, we needed further resources on a specialized part of the project. We discussed with RabIT software engineering whether they would be able to provide more people on more specific topics. It's one of the requests that were not fulfilled. They are also still growing, so I'm sure that that has improved by now.

Feedback summary: 

RabIT assigned a single dedicated engineer to work on this project which helped it to flow smoothly while keeping development costs low. From a project management standpoint, the team performed adequately, maintaining communication on a weekly basis.

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

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

My organization is a small business. I have ideas for mobile applications and small web applications, and I reach out to contractors to develop them.

What is your position?

It's just me. I'm a single-person business.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with RabIT software engineering?

I had a mobile application collectible card game that I was thinking about creating. I approached RabIT to provide the resources to get it done for me.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

My budget was pretty limited. There was only a single developer working on my project. They were responsive and well qualified as well. We got initial plans done implementation-wise, and the product is now in a holding stage. I ran out of budget, and the resource who was working on my project left the company, so we agreed that we would put the project on hold. There hasn't been any final release yet.

It was basically at a testable stage. The functionality was there, and it was working, but it wasn't ready to be used or shown to any customers. The user interface was basic. This wasn't a native application. It was a web-based application, so it was compatible with PC, Android, and iOS devices.

I envisioned a collectible card game where the players could battle each other and collect cards. Eventually, once the game kicked off, we would implement micro transactions and the ability to buy decks of cards and expand your collection to gain advantages on your opponents.

How did you come to work with RabIT software engineering?

I come from the same town where RabIT is headquartered. I know a large of number of IT [information technology] professionals, and they recommended RabIT to me.

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

It cost less than $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working on the project sometime in February 2016, and it was put on hold in May. I'm planning to restart work this fall, but it's not a certainty yet.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

Not really. There weren't any other investors, so no. There hasn't been any outside feedback really.

How did RabIT software engineering perform from a project management standpoint?

We had regular calls at least on a weekly basis. I was happy with the management. There wasn't much managing to be done because the team was a single individual. Most of the time, it was enough to reach out to him and clarify any uncertainty. If there was a technical problem, RabIT would always put someone more senior on the job to help my developer.

What distinguishes RabIT software engineering from other providers?

The key reasons for choosing RabIT were that they were inexpensive and are dedicated. The owner of the company [CEO Zsolt Rabi] is dedicated to all the projects that the company has. He's always available and open for discussion. He can always give a contact point if he's not available. He makes sure that all of the projects are always moving along. Even though my project was small, I felt like I was always getting enough attention.

Is there anything RabIT software engineering could have improved or done differently?

It's a minor thing. I was aware that the resource that worked on my project was more junior. Sometimes, he'd run into pretty basic issues, but they'd always solve them internally. The advantage was that he was also a cheaper resource, so it had a cost-reduction benefit.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

My company is developing software for e-commerce and hotel booking.

What is your position?

I am the CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with RabIT software engineering?

We needed more software developers to help us develop our code base.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

We hired one guy from RabIT full time, and he helped us develop the software for our customers. We are coding in Java, PHP, HTML5, and JavaScript. We're also doing some AngularJS.

They've helped us with multiple projects. We have many customers on our code base with different demands, and they help us deliver the demands they have.

How did you come to work with RabIT software engineering?

I found them on Upwork. We had this developer travel to Norway to stay with us for a week where we worked together.

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

We pay on an hourly basis each month. We use them three weeks a month because they have some other tasks. We have spent less than $10,000 to date.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started three months ago, and they are still helping us. We are going to use them a lot in the future too. We're quite satisfied. We are most likely going to expand their role and incorporate a team of developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

No, not really. We have quite a close relationship with our customers, which is great. It's hard to quantify because our platform is quite huge, and RabIT only has access to small bits of it. It's also kind of under the hood too, the tasks they do.

How did RabIT software engineering perform from a project management standpoint?

Actually, we do the project management, so it's hard to tell. They are pretty decent. We work in Agile, so we don't have hard deadlines since they are not working on projects. We only hire hour by hour like a normal employee, so I can't say much about that area.

What distinguishes RabIT software engineering from other providers?

I would like to say that RabIT is resourceful in being able to do the tasks. I don't need to specify the task that much because they are able to think for themselves. If I tell them to do something, I can just tell them the broad idea, and they are able to work from there.

Is there anything RabIT software engineering could have improved or done differently?

I haven't thought that much about it because he is basically a normal employee. I don't have any comment on that.
