We do because we believe in it.

Red Panthers, is a product development company that specializes in Ruby on Rails and modern javascript frameworks like (Angular, React and Vue.js). We help startups and enterprises build the next big idea.

We do that by using the best practices in Agile Methodologies, Test Driven Development, and working as a well-synced team. For new companies, it would be hard for them to onboard the best practices from day 1. We do that for them so that they can take over a well built, battle-tested, maintainable, and scalable code base.

Red Panthers was built with the aim to foster the best in technology for the next generation, this desire encourages us to contribute to the community by open sourcing our code, contributing to existing libraries out there, speaking at conferences (international and national), and also sponsoring and organize tech meetups & events for the local community.

Feedback summary: 

Red Panthers completed a project that pleased all involved stakeholders. Their team comprised of developers that were skilled both in their knowledge of code and with communicating. The project manager efficiently handled the team of developers.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder of Devato, a development company contracted to build out features for the NextAgency system, which is a large complex application that helps companies and employees in the United States apply for different insurance benefits and packages.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Red Panthers?

Red Panthers provided developers to scale-up the development team for the many features that were required to launch the project.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to boost our development team to build, test, deploy, and monitor new features.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

After we were contracted, I contacted several firms and tried a few different engineers out, but they lacked the communication and development skills needed to work with a well-funded and experienced engineering team. Once I contacted Red Panthers, they assured me that they had the expertise needed to deliver quality results.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

The engineers were responsible for taking wireframes and mockups to build features for the NextAgency product. Additionally, they performed writing tests and wrote code.

What was the team composition?

We started with one engineer, who I personally managed every day to ensure that their work was high quality and delivered results according to the client's expectations. Because of the project’s success, we scaled the team up to five engineers. Red Panther’s highest ranked engineer helped manage the rest of the engineers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

This project was a major learning experience for our company and helped us understand the complexities and issues that can arise from offshoring a project. We developed professional business skills that remain effective today on communication and getting work done remotely. Red Panthers dispelled any preconceived notions we had about offshoring projects.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

In the beginning, I was the sole project manager. Later on, a senior engineer from Red Panthers handled the code reviews and daily management for his team. The entire process ran smoother and they maintained a high product quality. The entire team was motivated and were effective communicators which pleased all of the stakeholders involved.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their willingness to overcome issues with time zone differences and find ways to work together with my company to deliver high-quality results every day over a long period of time a selling point. Red Panthers is a team of highly skilled and passionate engineers who strive to solve problems in eloquent ways. They were eager to learn and train their team on how to improve. They knew how to solve some problems, and when tougher problems arose, we all worked to together to find solutions that worked well for everyone. Overall, they were very accommodating and professional.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

When they brought in a more inexperienced developer, he was not able to keep the same pace as the others, which was not as well-received by my client. If they could match engineers more closely with the pace and level of the client and have new developers learn internally, rather than having them on client code, it could prevent the loss of trust that can happen when deliveries are low quality and behind schedule.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The developers of Red Panthers are detail-orientated and analytic. They skillfully deliver on complex assignments and take the initiative to complete early-stage solutions. They’re trustworthy partners with a transparent approach and thoroughly tested code. They’ll improve as the company grows.

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 CTO of Treniq. We’re a B2B trade platform for luxury furnishings.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Red Panthers?

I wanted to augment my development team with Ruby on Rails experts. We needed their help with software development and cleaning up the platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The platform allows furniture suppliers to list their products and be discovered by buyers around the world. In that sense, it's a networking and trade platform but also functions as a financial service engine that assists with completing transactions. Red Panthers was brought in to integrate with our existing development team and as a result, weren’t limited to specific aspects of the project. The initial engagement was intended to take place over a month or two but quickly grew into a more significant undertaking with more developers.

They helped build out our search functionality using Apache Solr and were part of developing the networking component. We’ve had them do a lot of work around Mixpanel, Google Analytics, and building our own reporting engine. They also helped with developing financial services revolving around international payments. Finally, they did typical front- and backend work and advised on performance issues. They utilized Rails throughout the process.

What is the team composition?

We worked with three front- and backend developers in various capacities throughout the project.

How did you come to work with Red Panthers?

I interviewed a few vendors and Red Panthers had a good reputation in the market. In fact, another company I spoke to recommended them to us. They also had excellent reviews from companies they’ve worked with previously, so I decided to give them a try.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around £25,000–£30,000 ($34,612–$41,534 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

This engagement took place April 2017 – January 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’m very happy with what they delivered. There’s always more that can be done, but the quality is quite good.

How did Red Panthers perform from a project management standpoint?

Their developers supplemented my team, so I handled most of the project management. A representative of Red Panthers did check in with us occasionally to bring the developers up to speed and see how things were progressing. However, he wasn’t assigned to the project in any way.

We used Slack as a communication tool and it worked out well. Communication with one team member was slightly difficult, but that person is less experienced than the rest of the team. I’d reach out to Red Panthers if something wasn’t getting delivered correctly and they’d quickly resolve the problem. They’re quite responsive in that way.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their developers are incredibly analytical and capable of proper software development. I could throw complex problems at them or assign loosely defined solutions and they’d go through the whole process and come back with questions. They didn’t need to be heavily managed, which impressed me considering they’re a small business. Furthermore, they submitted timesheets to a program that took a snapshot of the developer’s screen every five minutes. This transparency built trust. Ultimately, the code they delivered was adequately tested, especially the backend.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They should consider how to better unit test frontends, as it’s very important. If they want to do a great job, their consultants should take the lead in the future. Additionally, if I scaled up the project to four or five developers, I’d likely need access to a senior staff member to coordinate them. I didn’t face this issue, but it’s something for them to consider as the company continues to grow.
