Feedback summary: 

The products have received positive reviews in their respective app stores, a result of Relia Software’s smart engineering and appreciation for the minute details. Their work rarely required fixes, making them a steady and reliable partner. The development team is collaborative and organized.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the managing director of an IT company that specializes in software development management and IT service.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

Relia Software worked to further develop and test our Drive Plaza product, a location-based and map-based application for Android and iOS platforms.

What were your goals for this project?

We sought to improve our UI/UX implementation.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found Relia Software through our contact network. We were evaluating five possible vendors and selected them because of their portfolio and straightforward approach. The quality of the code in the samples they shared was top-notch. Moreover, they were actively involved in product strategy which made us feel that they are an extension of the internal team rather than an offshore vendor.

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

Relia Software provided the UI/UX implementation and conducted rounds of testing. We also rely on them for consultation regarding the usability of our application.

What was the team composition?

Relia Software’s team consisted of two mobile developers—a backend technician and a QA analyst.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

App users have offered extensive positive feedback in the App Store and the Google Play store. Relia Software completed the project within our timelines and delivered a flawless product.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

It’s obvious that Relia Software’s team puts a great amount of time and care into their work. The development process ran smoothly, as their work required very few fixes. We were spared any headaches because of their attention to detail.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Relia Software offers high-quality work and well-defined processes thanks to experienced developers. They are open to discussions instead of blindly following directions.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

We suggested a few changes to their documentation process at the beginning of the project, but otherwise, there isn’t anything notable that needs improvement.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The applications launched successfully, attracting 10,000 downloads and 2,000–3,000 active users each day, while allowing the company to raise funds for future versions. The team strategized the project effectively, planning apps they could deliver well, and tracking the development smoothly.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Runcaster is a sports application made for the Indian market. I’m the founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Relia Software?

We had the idea to build a real-time prediction app for the Indian cricketing season, which was to start a few months later. We needed an offshore extended development team to do it for us as I don’t have any technical expertise. I went through a few companies, finally hiring Relia to do my work.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The app was built for Android and iOS. It enables real-time predictions of live cricket matches. Users can go on the app and start predicting what’ll happen next, in order to win points, compete on leaderboards, and use their points to win prizes. The concept is similar to a trivia platform, but it’s more real-time and so everything needs to be quicker, in terms of syncing and calculating points from match results.

There were a lot of technical challenges, as well as UI/UX ones. On top of that, we needed everything completed within three months, in time for the new cricket season.

What is the team composition?

One of their key stakeholders is our project manager, and we’ve also worked with a business analyst, an account manager, a UX lead, and a tech lead. We currently have a dedicated product manager and a four-person dev team.

How did you come to work with Relia Software?

I researched companies that had built sports trivia apps and found them there. I liked that they looked at the strategy and outlined the UX before we started the collaboration. It was only from a documentation standpoint, but I liked that approach. I was able to explain the concepts in small pieces, and they collated everything to come up with an overall strategy, which impressed me.

How much have you invested with them?

It has cost over $60,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in February 2018. The first version of the app was completed by mid-April, and we have an ongoing relationship for the next version.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve had more than 10,000 downloads, and gained around 2,000–3,000 sessions per day. Our active user numbers were also good. They helped us to achieve success, so we’re also trying to get into other sports. We wanted to test the idea with cricket, and it turned out very well. We were able to raise $500,000 for the business, allowing us to put together an extended team. They’re always there to address feedback we receive.

How did Relia Software perform from a project management standpoint?

When it comes to project management, we had hiccups in the beginning. They’ve since streamlined things and the current process is very good. After starting an offshore development center, they put good processes in place. Once they got used to our way of working, they did a good job.

I’m currently traveling to Vietnam to meet them. They set up a very good team for us, and we still have a good relationship.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I liked their initial strategy. This project was something new to them and cricket wasn’t a sport they were aware of, but they got involved and understood the concept. They took on the project and made sure the delivery would be perfect for the upcoming season.

They only committed to things they could deliver, which gave me good visibility and allowed me to plan marketing accordingly. I wasn’t kept in the dark at any point. I’ve worked with IT services companies in the past, and Relia’s service stood out. I’ve seen companies with better processes than them, but Relia has an excellent level of know-how.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The project management and communication were definitely something to improve at the start of the project. Other than that, there’s nothing I can think of. The cost/value is very good, as is the scheduling.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

At least in the initial stages, it’s important to have a close relationship. One thing I’ve learned is the importance of working closely for the first few weeks of a project. We had multiple calls to help them understand our expectations, which helped a lot. Doing this will make the relationship a successful one. It’s why I decided to visit them in-person in Vietnam.

Relia has a solid process, and they know what they’re doing. They have solid resources to track the work and everything is transparent. Relia can be the go-to company for anyone looking to building the first version of a product and then scaling it.

There are features that track goals and milestones, daily activities, rewards, and diet. The team also designed a corresponding website to support our application.

How did you come to work with Relia Software?

We went through a competitive bidding process with four different companies. Ultimately, we chose Relia Software for their responsiveness, persistence, and knowledge. When we first interacted, they came prepared with solutions to address the project. They also offered a good price for their range of capabilities.

So far, we’ve spent between $25,000­–$40,000.

What is the status of the engagement?

Is there anything you found impressive about working with Relia Software?

They are very capable, they’ve never turned down a task because it fell outside of their skill range. As a startup, we also appreciate that their team is very accommodating to our changing needs.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can’t think of one. Even though we’re based in different countries, we still manage to communicate consistently.
