Feedback summary: 

RebelDot delivered a fully functional product that enabled the client to move forward with their efforts. The solution they provide minimizes expenses and maximizes ROI. They facilitated a seamless dynamic between the several parties involved. Friendly and flexible, they put the client at ease.

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 founder of Menushare, a collaboration platform for restaurants.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RebelDot?

I had a high-level concept in mind for how to create a product that lets people at different restaurant locations share a common menu and have breakfast, lunch, or dinner as if they were at the same restaurant.  

We wanted to create an experience that would replicate a restaurant environment and make users feel like they were sitting in front of each other. I hired RebelDot to develop the web-based platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Based on my broad idea, RebelDot thoroughly walked me through the planning stages for our project before we began the development. Our app is built for the Android platform. They used a version of Java for the programming.

Our collaboration involves between 4-5 different companies who supply the hardware, payment gateways, and some software, but RebelDot has completed 90% of the development so far.

RebelDot became a very useful partner and helped me expand my ideas along the way. When I was working by myself, I didn’t have a full grasp on the product. They helped me expand my ideas. 

What is the team composition? 

The team included 6 –7 people including an architect, developers, testers, a project manager, and the owner of RebelDot.

How did you come to work with RebelDot?

After reviewing a few different companies, I selected RebelDot because they made me feel the most comfortable. I liked the way they answered my questions. 

The founder explained things very well. He arranged the first meeting with three teammates who each explained a specific component of the project development.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $300,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2014 and made the last payment in early 2018, but I still consider the engagement to be ongoing. RebelDot is not active for us right now, but we will re-engage them once we reach a certain point in our marketing efforts. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

RebelDot has delivered tangible results we now have in our possession. They developed our product so I could have something functional in my hands to show the other parties who are involved in this project. 

Unfortunately, the product isn’t ready yet due to reasons that are unrelated to their work.  We’re now getting more into the sales and commercialization stages. I still speak with them often to brainstorm new ideas. 

RebelDot has provided a very cost-effective solution. I’ve been very happy with them so far. They have been wonderful people to work with and have taught me many useful things. I frequently seek their input and advice on what they feel is the right approach. They’re always very helpful. We collaborate well together.

How did RebelDot perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management has been excellent. I am totally dependent on them in many ways since I don’t have a technology background. Their support was especially crucial before our company hired a CTO. 

RebelDot has done everything right. They clearly explained their methodology and guided me through every step of the process. We use an Atlassian collaboration tool to update the project as we go along. The project manager took notes and keep everything up to date. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Our CTO is very impressed with RebelDot, especially their presentations and communication style. They always make an effort to clarify the information we provide.

Every positive impression I’ve had of RebelDot has been reinforced by our CTO. He has worked with many offshore companies and likes RebelDot a lot. In fact, he actually hired them to work on a separate project, which speaks to their abilities. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I’m happy with them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It’s always a good idea to narrow down the specifications, even if you have to make payments before starting the project. I encourage future clients to be clear and ask questions. Keep in mind that the project will evolve and might take shape differently than you predict.

Feedback summary: 

The new system helps standardize operational procedures and assess maintenance costs. RebelDot went above and beyond to meet all needs, while their knowledgeable and highly-skilled team brought valuable insight to the project.

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 a product owner at a commercial real estate company. We offer hotel-style accommodations in high-end downtown apartment buildings.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RebelDot?

We needed a vendor to help us develop an internal customer-facing software solution.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

First, we met with their team and discussed our needs. I gave them my design and RebelDot built a software that we can use to manage cleanings and other maintenance actions in the buildings where we operate. We went through a very large sprint-planning process with them and then, I had regular stand-up calls with their development unit. They understand our marketplace very well, so they bring up the things we haven't even thought about and make valuable recommendations. The development work is mostly finished at this point, but we're still making modifications to the system.

What is the team composition?

We mostly work with a delivery manager and three full-time developers. They also bring in other resources as needed to help us accomplish our goals.

How did you come to work with RebelDot?

They did a couple of other projects for us previously and we had great results, so we decided to bring them in for this project.

What is the status of this engagement?

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

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We've been very happy with the whole process from start to finish. We had the metrics designed around our cleaning system, so we could start standardizing operational procedures throughout our entire portfolio. It enables us to track how long it takes for a team of people to clean our units and access the costs of cleaning, which helps us negotiate better contracts with our vendors.

How did RebelDot perform from a project management standpoint?

They're very hard-working, diligent, and dedicated. They're fluent in English and answer any questions that we have. We added them to our internal Slack channel and they've been very responsive. They've kept the project on track and provided valuable insight if there was an issue with the system.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They're very adaptable. They have a broad range of knowledge and they've worked with our system before. Their ability to adapt to our business requests is outstanding.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can't think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be as clear as possible about what you're looking for and allow them to ask the questions they might have.

Feedback summary: 

The prototype was critical in gathering funding for beta development. Respectful and communicative, RebelDot has fostered a collaborative partnership. Their design and UI work has garnered significant positive feedback from early testers.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder and director of RECRE8TION MEDIA INC.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire RebelDot?

We’re a launching a social mobile app and brought on RebelDot to help with the prototype. Later, we decided to have them build the full app as well.

What were your goals for this project?

We set out to create a beta version of the app that would convey our concept to prospective clients and investors.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We heard about them through word of mouth. They built a dating app for a friend of mine, who said they were cost-effective and that they communicated clearly.

Describe the project in detail.

Starting with the prototype, we discussed our goals with them and our desired functionality for the app. I then worked with their designers and frontend coders to produce a prototype. After gaining some interest from prospective clients, we worked on a beta version of the app. This was simpler because we’d done the work with the prototype. The execution has been relatively painless.

What was the team composition?

Initially, I interacted with people from different departments in large Skype calls, but as we progressed, I spoke with a single point of contact who oversaw the entire project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I constantly receive great feedback about the app’s look and feel and functionality.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It’s been relatively simple. They’re reliable, communicative, and productive.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Everyone is professional and courteous and good at what they do.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There’s always something you’d do differently, but our process to this point has been pleasant and productive, which is more than we can ask for.

Feedback summary: 

Their team develops software products that are impactful and effective. Their dedication and flexibility enable them to manage several projects simultaneously. Using a collaborative and transparent approach, RebelDot ensures that development processes run smoothly and efficiently.

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 Danish consultancy. We provide IT and project management services to firms in the offshore wind power industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RebelDot?

We hired them to build several IT products. We had some ideas for systems that could be used by our clients, but we didn’t have the resources to develop them in-house.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

For the first product, they started the project after receiving our scope and specifications, along with user stories and a prototype that we created in Excel. They broke our design down into sections based on the user stories, and then initiated the development of the platform. They’re still working on small feature updates.

Their team has now moved to the design phase for a quality management system, which will be the next module in our platform. They do most of their development in .NET using C# and Angular.js. They’ve also upgraded some of our platforms from Angular.js to Angular 7. All of their code is cloud-based, and their products run on web browsers.

What is the team composition?

I’ve worked with Tom (UX/Product Design Specialist, RebelDot), Ioana (Software Developer, RebelDot), and several other developers and designers. Alex (Manager, RebelDot) is my main point of contact, and I occasionally speak with Tudor (CEO, RebelDot) about non-technical matters.

How did you come to work with RebelDot?

I was referred to RebelDot by a friend who was completing a project with them. My business partner and I went and met with them for three days to discuss our business and potential projects. We chose them because they seemed capable of developing our ideas, and there was good chemistry between our teams.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began development in December 2015, and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’ve developed successful IT systems that we’ve been able to sell to clients.

How did RebelDot perform from a project management standpoint?

Initially, we handled project management, but recently they’ve expanded their role in managing our development projects. For example, we’ve started using a project management platform that displays burn down charts and shows forecasting information. They’ve built most of our products using the Scrum method, which has been very effective.

Their team is professional, and they communicate well both verbally and in writing. They’ve also been responsive throughout the partnership.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re friendly and accommodating, and I’ve enjoyed our in-person meetings.

Are there any areas they could improve?

At the outset, they didn’t provide regular updates and progress reports, and they weren’t proactive about communicating with our team. Also, they could do a better job of identifying areas where we can save on costs.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Engage with their team. Meet with them in person, and make yourself available to answer questions. Heavy collaboration is the key to successful IT projects.

Feedback summary: 

Feedback and quantitative metrics are consistently positive and strong. Communicative and hardworking, RebelDot applies creative problem solving and technical skills to effectively achieve business objectives.

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 CEO of Samba Networks, a specialist in-app advertising company. We provide targeted user-first advertising that engages users without interrupting the existing service.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RebelDot?

We don’t have any highly-skilled developers on staff so, we needed to entirely outsource our technical needs.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

RebelDot provides for all our technology needs including the complete tech stack, technology builds, and new product development. They developed both of our core products based on our requirements—one called Selector which provides a choice of ads and another called Carousel that shows single ads—with a number of iterations of those products over the years. We initially launched those products in-app, but they’re transferable across other digital assets including on desktop.

They manage our technical architecture in addition to the frontend products. They developed a real-time console for us. They’ve been involved in the backend development of our website, and they manage our server hosting.

What is the team composition?

We work with three developers who are led by their CTO. We can draw on additional specialist members of their team as needed.

How did you come to work with RebelDot?

Our CTO at the time had worked with them before and introduced us.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent over $1 million in total.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since January 2011.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The feedback from advertisers and brands as well as the performance statistics for the products themselves have all been strong. Our quantitative metrics, such as click-through rates, are higher than industry averages. Our consumer research has shown that users have higher brand favorability than a control group.

Because they’ve built our products to be transferrable, we’re expanding to launch on desktops as well. Our revenues were 100% in-app but this year will be split 50/50 between desktop and in-app services.  

How did RebelDot perform from a project management standpoint?

We typically communicate via Skype as we’re based in the UK, and they’re based in Romania. We also use phone and e-mail. They have an internal project management tool that I have access to. They're hardworking and almost always available to put in extra hours if needed.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They've been extremely supportive of the business. We wouldn't be where we are without them. There's absolutely no doubt about that. From a personal point of view, I don't know a single developer that has the capabilities that their CTO has. His creative solutions and problem-solving are second to none as far as I'm concerned. He comes up with solutions that nobody else has been able to, which is great.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Generally, no. There was a period last year during which they changed their management structure a little bit to bring in individual project managers. That didn’t work for us—there were too many people involved—so they were willing to revert to the prior arrangement. That was the only time that things didn’t work as efficiently as usual.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Get some of the CTO’s time if possible. Be sure to plan the project up front and make sure that everything is documented from a business analysis perspective once the requirements are known. Their developers are great. Make sure you have the right number and mix of them on the team.
