BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of a medical diagnosis company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RIKSOF?

I hired RIKSOF to develop a web and mobile application.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Since I have some technical expertise, I’m able to speak with the development lead and give them requirements. PHP was used for the development, along with React, Android Ionic, and AWS for the server management.

What is the team composition?

We have a project manager, development lead, and a QA.

How did you come to work with RIKSOF?

A friend who previously used RIKSOF recommended them to me. They had all the skill sets that I needed.

How much have you invested in them?

I’ve spent around $35,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement with RIKSOF began in 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The support RIKSOF provides is great. They’re on time and met all of our expectations. Our style of development is more rapid and agile, and it is continuous integration to the system. Due to the agile nature of the project, things are sometimes expected to be up and down. If any issues come up, their team fixes them as soon as possible.

How did RIKSOF perform from a project management standpoint?

RIKSOF is a one-stop shop, allowing me to manage my time. The project manager makes sure everything is taken care of. We have weekly meetings, and depending on the requirements, there is sometimes a need for daily meetings. They’ve provided support in the middle of the night when needed. We use Trello for requirements.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Everything about them is great. I’m getting impressive results for the price I’m paying.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s always room for improvement. It would be good if there could be a little more communication with the client directly, and perhaps they could introduce more technology.

RIKSOF delivered a final version of the web portal that secured customer satisfaction and exceeded the client’s expectations. They rapidly produced best-in-class results and demonstrated a keen ability to learn new development techniques. Project management was smooth and productive.

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 head of the business intelligence department a data analytics company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RIKSOF?

Our in-house web developers had left the company. We needed a team that could assist us in developing web portals and websites for our customers.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We started the project by having RIKSOF develop a web portal for one of our customers. Our WordPress platform is mainly content-based and processes a lot of information in the B2C content.  

Using PHP, the team built special features like a location map for vendors and customers. This was especially crucial for the customer version of the digital portal.

After we achieved success with the initial web portal, we continued working together to develop an e-commerce platform for customers to sell their products using different payment methods. RIKSOF used .NET technology to build integrations for PayPal, Visa, and Mastercard.

What is the team composition? 

The team included a project manager, one developer, and one QA tester for the web portal. A developer from our company collaborated with RIKSOF. 

For the e-commerce platform, they assigned us a project manager and a developer. I was the project manager from our side for both projects.

How did you come to work with RIKSOF?

We shortlisted three companies and interviewed a set of people from each one. Ultimately, we selected RIKSOF based on their experience, prices, and ability to fulfill the requirements from our customers.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $25,000-$50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from April 2016–August 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our customers really appreciated the web portal RIKSOF created. Due to the success of these projects, we have been receiving more business from consumers. 

How did RIKSOF perform from a project management standpoint?

RIKSOF did a wonderful job. They exceeded our expectations. The project manager was always in touch with me in terms of strategy or resolving any issues. 

Their response times were very fast. Whenever we had a challenge, we could easily pick up the phone and call them. Within minutes or a few hours at most, they’d have a team resolving the issues of the customer. 

We used Trello as a collaboration tool and RIKSOF used Jira internally. They were up to speed with the latest technology and used up-to-date collaborative tools.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We were using a payment method based in Saudi Arabia that is different than Visa, Mastercard, or PayPal. As soon as we shared our customer’s requirements and the feature set for the payment method, RIKSOF implemented it in no time.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s nothing I’d ask them to improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

As long as clients provide clear requirements, RIKSOF’s developers are capable of quickly getting up to speed with virtually any technology.

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 founder of a company that produces, markets, and build mobile apps.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RIKSOF?

We needed a vendor to help us build a flyer creation app and assist with other development projects.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

RIKSOF helped us develop and deploy Flyerly, which is an app that allows users to create and share visual flyers on their social networks and via email or text. It's an iOS app, and RIKSOF did third-party SDK integrations with our partners to enable printing and mailing of the actual flyers. They also helped maintain and update the app year over year.

What is the team composition?

I worked with 4–6 members of their team, including their CEO and a project manager.

How did you come to work with RIKSOF?

I conducted dozens of interviews and looked at many different portfolios. RIKSOF stood out because of their communication skills and their quick response times. We were confident they'd do a great job, so we hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent over $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

I worked with them between 2010–2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The number of downloads increased from 30,000 to 300,000 as a result of RIKSOF's involvement in the refresh and rebrand campaigns and their UX/UI work. Some of the integrations they did, such as monetization strategies, in-app purchases, and app advertising helped us generate revenue without doing any paid marketing.

How did RIKSOF perform from a project management standpoint?

Over the years, we used a variety of tools to communicate, including Trello, Skype, Google Hangouts, video chat, and email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They really cared about the project and were invested in our success. Also, they're very personable, unlike some other companies that create a cold business environment.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They're growing rapidly and hiring more project managers and developers. The scaling is always a challenge, so I hope they'll maintain their personal touch as they're getting more customers. It's not their weakness, but rather a challenge that many companies face when they start to grow.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of a healthcare software company. We have software for doctors to submit their claims to Medi-Cal.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RIKSOF?

We needed help with software development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided software development services and cloud management services, moving our entire infrastructure to AWS. Our platform is based on PHP, Opensource, and MySQL. They also were our solution architect in putting together the overall design and solution.

What is the team composition?

There was a project manager, two to five software developers, and a solution architect.

How did you come to work with RIKSOF?

I knew the owner from school.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2012, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The fact we’ve been engaged with them for so long speaks for itself. Their quality of work is super. They meet all their timelines and have helped us push the boundaries. The move to AWS wasn’t something we were looking for, but they convinced us that it was a good decision for us and it was. It saved us a lot of costs and set us on a path to success. We’re really happy with the results.

How did RIKSOF perform from a project management standpoint?

We use Trello as well as some other project management tools and didn’t have any issues. We always have a project manager who's available. The work is done overnight, and they provide a daily status update email to me and the rest of our team members. There are no issues with communication.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re flexible. We’re a startup company, so whenever we need more resources, they provide them, and equally, they ramp down if needed. If we had a contract with them for a certain number of hours in a year and we were under, they would allow us to use those hours in the next year. They’ve been far more flexible than what was officially contracted with them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

When we started in 2012, they had resources that would leave. What we worked out with them is that if there were a resource with us, they’d have another resource shadow him so that no knowledge is lost internally in their company. That has diminished the problem of resources leaving over time.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

No, I can't name anything.

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 CEO and founder of Curi. We're a social networking application.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RIKSOF?

We found that most social networking platforms and apps had lost their social component, so we were looking to build a tool that allowed users to bond and connect based on common interests. We needed a company to help us build a native iOS app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built a native iOS application that is hosted on AWS. We're now exploring an SQA model, so we can get a native app in a wrapper for both iOS and Android.

What is the team composition?

I work with 3–4 members of their team.

How did you come to work with RIKSOF?

The cost was a huge factor for us since we were on a budget ourselves. We were looking for an offshore company that had good English-speaking skills and could offer competitive rates. RIKSOF was recommended to us, so we chose them.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent between $80,000–$100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in November 2016 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It's work in progress and we've recently finished redeveloping the application from ground up. We actually pulled the app from the App Store as were going through phase 2 of the buildout. RIKSOF did a lot of research and provided guidance to us in terms of the industry's best practices, which was very helpful as we were growing our business.

How did RIKSOF perform from a project management standpoint?

They mainly use Trello for managing the workflow. There are some language barriers, but we've been very satisfied with what we got for the money we spent.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their CEO is very hands-on and interested in our project, which gives us confidence.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They've grown a lot over the years and they're doing a consultative aspect a lot better now. But at the beginning, we felt they could be more open and forthcoming about the industry's best practices since that was something we were not familiar with.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Dublin Web Designers handles everything from mobile app development, to websites, graphic design, and print media. We manage many different areas, both offline and online. I am the owner and the lead developer of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RIKSOF?

We have a large client in the financial sector that was offering two products to their customers. This required a lot of back-and-forth paperwork, so we came up with the solution of developing an app for each product.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

RIKSOF helped us develop the apps for our client and link them to a massive secured database.

At the time of development, RIKSOF's role was to handle development work. I was in charge of design, wire-framing, layouts, functionalities, etc. RIKSOF built it from the ground up, using MongoDB, AngularJS, CSS, HTML, and SQL. RIKSOF has also created .NET versions of both apps, linking them to a separate .NET system which I'm designing for the customer.

We had a tight schedule, so RIKSOF started what would be called a hackathon, working from Monday to Sunday, 12 hours a day. There were between 10-12 developers working every day on both apps.

How did you come to work with RIKSOF?

Before starting my own company, I'd worked for another agency. RIKSOF developed a mobile app for that company, which is still being updated.

How much have you invested with RIKSOF?

The development for each of our 2 apps had a cost of $60,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with RIKSOF in 2015. We have an ongoing collaboration for support. Both apps were developed within 4 months instead of 6, from start to finish.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Both of the apps built by RIKSOF have been a big success. The client never had direct involvement with RIKSOF, always working through me. My own impression is that RIKSOF is good at what it does, and provided high quality. If there's ever a problem, we can get a hold of them and fix it. There were never any issues at all.

How did RIKSOF perform from a project management standpoint?

RIKSOF performed well in terms of project management. There was a bit of a mix-up on time zones, but that was about it.

Are there any areas RIKSOF could improve?

I appreciated RIKSOF's work attitude. I've outsourced many projects to companies in the far East, and found RIKSOF to be one of the more reliable and trustworthy ones. If we agree on a timeframe, RIKSOF will deliver to the day, without issues. This was hard to find within other companies.

Are there any areas RIKSOF could improve?

RIKSOF can be an expensive company in certain areas, but we get what we pay for.
