Feedback summary: 

Relevant Software was the only vendor who grasped the project requirements during the bidding process, and the team delivered satisfactory results on time. The developers even added special features at no extra charge. Relevant Software was quick to fix bugs and answer concerns.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am a visual artist and the sole proprietor of the business.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Relevant Software?

I had an idea for a collective art project. Initially, it would be web-based, but it could be hosted physically later on. The project would be a large mosaic picture — a pixelated piece made up of photography and drawings uploaded by users. This collective artwork would have more than 10,000 participants. Anyone can upload up to 4 drawings along with text content. Each image would represent one tile of the mosaic picture. I paint forest scenes, so I chose the subject because it’s related to what I do.

The main challenge for me was displaying this picture. I wanted to have a zoom feature similar to that of Google Maps. I also wanted pictures to be searchable by name, country, and keywords. I know how to build simple websites, but this one was too much for me given the database, map display, and everything else.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Relevant Software developed my website, which was quite complex. It consists of different parts, including a user upload page and a page where people can fill out forms with their names, emails, and location. The site allows users to crop pictures into perfect squares, change contrast, and write text. Once that data is uploaded into a database, the main drawing changes to include the user picture into one square tile. The main picture is zoomable and searchable. There is also a blog part where I can post updates and contact information.

We had one main point of contact from Relevant Software, and we also interacted with one of their developers. The communication was simple, given that I have web design knowledge. I haven’t used Relevant Software’s services for other websites.

How did you come to work with Relevant Software?

My husband and I looked for and contacted many companies. We would usually start with a Skype interview. Most of the developers were good at building simple websites, but they didn’t understand what we wanted. As soon as we contacted Relevant Software, we could see that they understood exactly what we were talking about.

How much have you invested with Relevant Software?

The cost of their work has been around $15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Relevant Software in January 2017. From start to finish, it took us 4 months, which was great. The platform was completed in April. It has been launched, and it is working well.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

People have loved the idea. This was not something I did in order to make money, but I may decide to monetize parts of the website in the long-term. The participation is great, but it’s dependent on our effort on the social media side. I have done a lot of marketing for the site on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. We also have an automated MailChimp newsletter. People who participate in it receive updates from us. I have also started looking for sponsors, and a few companies are providing giveaways for participation.

Relevant Software has helped with this effort by building an extra page where people can share specific drawings based on the main picture. This wasn’t in the initial specifications. They have also made it so that participants’ email addresses were added automatically to our MailChimp list. We had to fix a few bugs when the site went live, but Relevant Software was prompt in addressing them.

How did Relevant Software perform from a project management standpoint?

We have kept in touch to see how the project was evolving. They always replied to our emails promptly. We didn’t have a fixed deadline, so it wasn’t an important issue for us. When Relevant Software gave us a completion date, it was followed most of the time.

What did you find most impressive about Relevant Software?

I always felt that Relevant Software was listening to us and doing the best they could. There will always be items that aren’t possible to build from a technical standpoint, and we have to understand that as a customer. As long as it was possible, Relevant Software tried to make us happy.

Are there any areas Relevant Software could improve?

Not from our experience. I didn’t have any frustrations.

Their strength in communication is what impressed this client. Relevant Software was always available for questions and was dedicated to the project management.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

BOOMCAST is a social media platform dedicated to positive change. I’m the CEO and co-founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Relevant Software?

We needed a mobile and desktop app built.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Relevant Software has done the frontend, backend and testing for the iOS app and the development of the desktop version. They did some business analysis and helped with the product management as well.

How did you come to work with Relevant Software?

Our CTO had done some work with the Relevant team in the past and had a great experience with them. Our tech team was in San Francisco checking out firms and there was no one near as motivated, efficient or communicative as the team from Relevant Software. The San Francisco firms were a lot more expensive too.

How much have you invested with Relevant Software?

So far, we’ve spent 30,000 Euros working with their team.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in September 2016, and the project is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app is 99% crash free which speaks to the quality of their engineering skills. We’ve been able to reach our deadlines quickly.

How did Relevant Software perform from a project management standpoint?

I’ve been incredibly impressed with their communication. We spoke every day, and they updated us on what they were doing each day. If we had any questions, they would be sure to answer. We use JIRA for our project management.

What did you find most impressive about Relevant Software?

Their communication is key when working with an offshore team. Their attention to detail is great, and they question us if they think it might be better to solve the issue in a different way. They care about the product they’re building.

Are there any areas Relevant Software could improve?

We would have preferred a quote upfront rather than a monthly bill. We spent a little more than we had hoped for.

BACKGROUND

We develop our own products for local Norwegian media markets. I am the technical director.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Relevant Software?

We were building our products for media.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Sometimes we get assignments that are not relevant to us because we're doing our own projects. This assignment was from a customer we have a relationship with, so we were willing to help them by working with a company like Relevant Software to deliver on their projects. We've been buying quite a lot of WordPress, pure PHP, and front-end development from Relevant.

How did you come to work with Relevant Software?

People from my network recommended them.

How much have you invested with Relevant Software?

We have spent up to $90,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with Relevant Software in the winter of 2015 and our work with them is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

How did Relevant Software perform from a project management standpoint?

The greatest thing was that it was very easy to integrate them into our teams. I'm satisfied with everything. We hired the developer directly without the project management. The developers were quite organized, and it was easy to work with them. Communication was good.

What did you find most impressive about Relevant Software?

They're organized and always available to start new projects. We never had to wait a long time, and that's quite different from other providers.

BACKGROUND

Directinvent is a company that develops time-tracking and project management software for the construction industry. We are working on a system that allows the user to track their time and do projects online and on a mobile phone. I am the CTO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Relevant Software?

We have a software right now, but it’s old.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Relevant is making a brand-new application for us. They are doing both the Android and the iOS versions. Also, they are developing the platform on the web, so they are doing the whole process.

How did you come to work with Relevant Software?

We had a pretty large screening process. We went on Upwork, and we posted the project. We were contacted by 10 or 20 companies. We did a quick screening. There were five companies that we wanted to speak with. We did interviews where I would talk to the teams. Then we did programming tests. The test wasn’t to qualify their programming skills but evaluate more how they communicate and if they were delivering on time. Then we were between Relevant and another Russian company. We decided to go for Relevant because we went down to Ukraine and spoke to the team. We liked them and saw that everything was fine. They were really good in communication, so we decided to go with them.

How much have you invested with Relevant Software?

We have spent around $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with Relevant Software in May 2016, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We're in beta; we haven't published the app. We're doing some UI [user interface] testing. They are looking good so far.

How did Relevant Software perform from a project management standpoint?

Relevant is very good. Every time we speak on Skype, they are sending us notes, and we also have full access to JIRA. The whole process is transparent. We have access to everything we want to have access to. They’re following up each day on Scrum. We do the Agile method, so we’re really happy with the project.

What did you find most impressive about Relevant Software?

I would say it would be the transparency. They’re really open and helpful. We also are working with Norwegian providers. You could think that we would have a faster response from the regions that are close by, but Relevant is more available via Skype, email, and so on. The communication, I would say, is by far the best.

Are there any areas Relevant Software could improve?

I would like for them to get into more of the details on the specs we are giving. The way we work is that we have some thoughts on development and they do some estimates. We would have liked more in-depth details of the estimates.

Feedback summary: 

The client used a hands-off approach with Relevant Software because of their professionality, project management, and dedication to making the project their own.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our organization runs a large game server network. We are a small team of about 10 software developers and marketing guys. I am the CEO and founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Relevant Software?

We were looking for a development partner to take care of a project. It was a little bit stuck because we didn’t have enough in-house resources.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We used Relevant Software to develop applications for us. With one of their business analysts, we defined the goal of the project and what we needed to do. Then we organized sprints in project management software like Jira. They created documentation and gave us frequent updates.

How did you come to work with Relevant Software?

We checked out a few companies through Google. The reason we worked with Relevant Software is because they were very proactive about getting information from us. They worked on structuring everything and told us what they needed so we could provide it to them. Other companies move slowly, but these guys move fast which is what we liked about them. Before we even kicked off the project, we would go into a lot of detail. That was quite impressive for us.

How much have you invested with Relevant Software?

The financial investment is around $20,000 to $50,000 for one project.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project duration was from August to November of 2015. Our engagement is ongoing. We have been working with them for almost two years now.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We are happy with the applications that Relevant Software provided us. Even after the deployment, they always helped us out if we needed something fixed. We’ve worked with other companies that gave us a product that was completely unusable afterward because a lot of details were overlooked or the code quality was poor. What we like about Relevant Software is that we actually use their software because it works.

How did Relevant Software perform from a project management standpoint?

The project manager overall was very professional. Their whole team worked on our project. That meant that we could be really hands-off as soon as they understood the scope and where we were trying to go. They were very proactive. We communicated via email, instant messenger, and project management software like Jira.

What did you find most impressive about Relative Software?

They provide attention to detail and have an increased level of ownership of a project. When they take on a project, they do it like it’s their own.

Are there any areas Relevant Software could improve?

Communication is always an issue when you work remotely. We had some miscommunication that caused delays of a few days. Improved communication could have helped, but overall I think they did a pretty good job.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our organization is GameIQ. We develop mobile software in the rewards and loyalty space. I am the CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Relevant Software?

We had a need for a consumer-facing web portal for our mobile app. We selected Relevant Software to help us build it.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They did all the development on our backend systems, including database development and PHP application development. All our technology is hosted on the Amazon cloud, and it's based on PHP with MySQL database backend. We started by architecting the solution with Relevant Software based on the specifications that we had put together. They helped us put together the database schemes and structure. They've coded the PHP middleware, and they assisted with creating and implementing the design. We provided them with our corporate look and feel; then they helped us translate that into HTML to create a complete frontend solution.

How did you come to work with Relevant Software?

It was simply through a web search. We interviewed 15 different companies and ended up selecting them for a couple of reasons. Their pricing was very reasonable, and their technology knowledge was a good fit. They could provide several different people with the expertise that we were looking for, which included the business analysis and architecture of our solution, as well as the coding, software development, keyway services and infrastructure management.

How much have you invested with Relevant Software?

We have spent around $190,000 to date.

What is the status of this engagement?

We hired Relevant Software in June 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The feedback has been very good. With Relevant Software's help, we could create a web portal for our customers that's easy to use, performs well and covers many devices. The portal is very responsive and gives us the combination of usability and power that we were looking for.

How did Relevant Software perform from a project management standpoint?

We've had a very good close relationship with them. We meet over Skype on a regular basis, and they're always available on demand. Whenever we needed them, they were always there for us. They've had a dedicated person to manage the project, both from a deliverable standpoint as well as a business analytics standpoint, to make sure that we are working on the things that are most relevant to us and that we're spending our money correctly. Then they have always been accountable with detailed progress reports that we can track in real time, as well as monthly granular reports of how we spent the money so we always have complete visibility of the entire project scope and progress.

What did you find most impressive about Relevant Software?

We've been able to build a personal relationship with them from the get-go. Relevant Software could adjust to our needs and provide the services that we needed in a way that they became part of our group very quickly. Even though they're outside the country, it's been a very easy process to work with them.
