Feedback summary: 

Although the project has yet to launch, Relevant Software has integrated seamlessly into the internal team, working closely to develop key features. Their consistent communication and solid technical skills position them well for continued engagement.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the current CEO of Webfy AS, a technology powerhouse that delivers goods and services suited to the digital age. Our team develops both simple and complex websites, online stores, software, and more advanced mobile applications for iOS and Android.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Relevant Software?

Relevant Software provides team extension services for custom software development. They perform both front- and backend development for our webshop platform and will later provide QA and testing services as well.

What were your goals for this project?

Our primary requirement was to develop a user-friendly webshop that would help our corporate customers order specific equipment. We were attempting to solve several problems to ensure a simple and efficient process when purchasing products.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We’ve been in touch with Relevant Software for a long time, and they’ve already delivered a few projects for us before. This time, we had the chance to meet with their CEO personally during his stay in Norway, so we hope for further successful collaborations together.

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

Our internal engineering team built the platform initially, and Relevant Software joined the project to augment our development capacity. They helped us add user and admin parts, including corporate user details, orders, data importing and exporting, a filter sidebar, and more. The user part involved user-friendly authorization, profile viewing, and order previews.

What was the team composition?

We work with a project manager and a team of front- and backend engineers. Later, during the final stage, they’ll assign a QA analyst.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

At the moment, we’re still in the development stage, so our webshop isn’t live yet. However, Relevant Software has contributed greatly, and we hope to continue collaborating with them in the future.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Relevant Software is part of our team and works closely with us. We keep open communication, coordinating through daily scrums and weekly demos.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We had a tight schedule and needed skilled staff with no downtime. Since then, our companies have collaborated on the projects smoothly. We really liked their performance, transparent processes, and regular communication.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

As the CEO, I didn’t see any delays or problems in our cooperation.

Relevant Software has continued to provide resources to prepare for launch. Their remote developer works seamlessly with the internal team and adapts well to existing project management styles. Clear communication and transparency coupled with strong technical skills contribute to their success.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Gofamer is a marketplace for influencers. Using the app, companies can track social and earned media to determine the reach and effectiveness of influencer content. This helps to derive the value of influencers in a balanced way. As the CTO, I’m responsible for making key technology choices, overseeing the development team, and maintaining coding standards.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Relevant Software?

Relevant Software provides team extension services for frontend development, working seamlessly with our in-house team to build our app. The work centers on developing new features as well as fixing existing bugs.

What were your goals for this project?

Initially, we wanted to develop a dashboard inside the app, which would enable companies to track activities and measure key metrics for social influencers on the system.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Our lead developer has worked with the Relevant Software team before and was fully satisfied with their service, including the code quality and communication processes. Having seen the quality of their work myself, I was more than happy to follow his recommendation.

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

Our in-house engineering team has been working to develop the app’s core, but we needed additional support to create the analytical dashboard. Relevant Software built the dashboard, which allows companies to view the overall statistics for one or more influencers. We’ve started the project in July 2018 and plan to continue working with Relevant Software into next year.

What was the team composition?

They’ve assigned a remote frontend engineer and have just added a QA specialist. We’re looking to add a PHP developer in the future.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Although we haven’t gone live yet, Relevant Software is helping us gear up for our product launch by providing the necessary manpower to complete tasks. I review their code regularly and am confident in its quality.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We mostly handle the project management ourselves, but they’ve provided an analyst to support us. The entire team, including the remote developer, participates in regular stand-ups and sprint-planning meetings. In terms of communication, we use Slack and our own project management tool to coordinate.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We like their performance, transparent processes, and regular communication. It’s easy to work with them, and their developer has integrated well with our internal team through our project management software.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

There have been no critical issues. Initially, we were concerned with their level of spoken English, but Relevant Software takes the time to provide language lessons where necessary. They have strong written English skills, too, so we’re able to communicate easily through Slack.

Performance metrics are not available prior to user testing. However, quality results to-date make re-engagement for further development likely. The project’s thorough discovery phase benefited Relevant Software’s successful execution.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO of Sensor Innovation. We develop industrial IoT solutions that monitor building constructions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Relevant Software?

Our product targets roofing companies, industrial fabric locations, and property owners. We needed a web-based platform for end users to monitor sensor data in real time and get notification alerts.

What were your goals for this project?

The architecture needed to be reliable, fast, and scalable. Also, we wanted a high-quality UI for pitches to prospective clients and investors.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I met the Relevant Software’s CEO on a business trip to Ukraine. Their experience, relevant experience, and level of trust impressed me.

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

We held a series of calls with the business analyst during the discovery phase. The team gathered the requirements and prepared the project documentation and wireframes. Relevant Software then developed the frontend and backend. We’re now doing QA before user testing.

What was the team composition?

We worked with one project manager, one business analyst, one frontend developer, two backend developers, and one QA specialist. The project manager was our main point of contact.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s too early to have metrics. We plan to do internal testing in late 2018 and subsequently gather user feedback. Once we have that information, we’ll re-engage Relevant Software to complete development.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The team’s iterative workflow included thorough discussions, a demo meeting, and well-executed implementations.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Relevant Software’s dedicated approach and clear communication made them a productive partner. They stayed within our budget and scope, and their deliverables met our expectations.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

I was happy with the collaboration. Although their technical questions created sight delays, I understood the need to prioritize quality over speed.

We were overhauling an outdated part of one of our products using updated technologies and architecture.

SOLUTION

I am a project manager based in Itera’s Ukrainian office. We are a consulting company that provides a variety of services, including development, testing, project managing, and operational support, for banks, pension funds, and healthcare companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Relevant Software?

We were looking for an iOS developer with an impressive set of technical and soft skills to assist our in-house team in developing an app for a new client. We wanted to produce high-quality results to establish an ongoing relationship.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed to improve the frontend and backend of the third-party’s existing mobile app.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

In our initial interaction, we found their team reliable and highly responsible.

Describe the project in detail.

The Relevant Software team worked on a mobile app to facilitate knee brace orders and their delivery tracking. The platform was written in Objective-C with a .Net backend hosted on Azure. They fully refactored the existing code to make it suitable for testing and future changes and programmed automatic data synchronization with the server database. They built the app to work with an external 3D scanner to make patients’ knee models. The team also implemented new UI/UX strategies, enhanced security features, and added a re-ordering function for users. They are now working on migrating the necessary data from the previous solution.

What was the team composition?

We worked with one mobile developer from Relevant Software.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The project’s main scope is completed and the team has presented the results to our third-party, and now works to make the final adjustments. We are hopeful for its success in the market. Following their remarkable performance on this project, we plan to involve Relevant Software in our upcoming mobile development opportunities.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They are quick to respond to our requests and those of the end-client. We schedule business trips for Relevant Software to meet with our in-house team face-to-face to track progress and build an inter-team relationship.

Our company produces devices for measuring indoor air quality and I'm the head of our cloud and web software team.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Relevant Software?

We were launching a new web platform for people to log in and see their sensor values. We were getting ready for a conference, so we were looking for a company to help us finish the development process on time.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They were part of our team, so we worked alongside each other. They used JavaScript, React, HTML, and CSS to manage frontend development and design for us.

What is the team composition?

We were working with two consultants and our project manager.

How did you come to work with them?

We worked with them previously on a similar project and we liked their work. We considered a few other companies, but they couldn't work with our timeline. Relevant Software had the right developers available instantly. Besides, they had affordable rates and the expertise we were looking for.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about 50,000 EUR ($60,700 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in May 2017 and the project was completed in April 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The platform looks amazing. We used it at the conference and got positive feedback both from our internal team and from our users.

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

We used agile methodology and had daily standups. They were great at following up and always made sure we were happy with the team they assigned to us.

What did you find most impressive about them?

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.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

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.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Integrating Relevant Software into the client's team was a very easy process. They were always available to start new projects.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

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.
