A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of ProfitApps. It’s a mobile application development company focused on helping lifestyle businesses who are looking to reach their clients.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Research Konnetion?

I needed some help in making a business plan.

They helped me formulate a business plan and company name. They advised on various issues, including where to establish the company, how to navigate office space and rent, and much more.

What is the team composition?

I worked directly with Waqas (Founder & Managing Director), but there were at least four others working on the project: one on finance, one on analysis, one doing research, and one doing the survey.

How did you come to work with Research Konnection?

I did an online search. I reached out to a handful of companies, most of which were quick to throw out a high price for the project before even hearing the scope. When I called Research Konnection, I was met with professionalism from the owner, who really listened to me. The flexibility of price also made it affordable for me.

We spent about 20,000 Dirhams (approximately $6,000 USD).

How did Research Konnection perform from a project management standpoint?

They did a good job. They finished the job within the estimated timeline. We spoke at least twice a week, but more often if there were updates to be given. The communication was excellent. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

I was impressed with the way they listened to me and discussed the project from the start. They don’t turn down a project unless they’re 100% sure they can’t do it. They delivered exactly what they promised, and more.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I would’ve liked to be involved in the actual surveys, but I understood their reasoning for not allowing it.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be very clear and open about your company, and your project. Include everything, even details that seem unimportant.
