The Review
Feedback summary: 

The project was completed according to the time and budget requirements set by the client, meeting the expectations of the internal team. Despite some initial project delays, Riseapps communicates effectively to ensure a smooth workflow. The team is skilled and dedicated.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Diffia develops innovative software solutions for health care, providing clinicians with a mobile "assistant in their pocket" to enable them to spend and less time on administrative tasks and more time treating patients. I work for Diffia as a software development contractor, and was responsible for coordinating the project with Riseapps.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Riseapps?

We had to integrate an external video platform into our iOS app, but were faced with the problem that the native iOS SDK for this platform had been discontinued. Due to the lack of support for WebRTC in iOS WKWebView components, we needed a native iOS WebRTC client that supported this particular provider, and hired Riseapps to develop this for us.

What were your goals for this project?

The goal was to develop a rudimentary framework for connecting to the video platform from an iOS app, that we could later integrate into our own native code and furnish with a proper user interface.

The technical spec was to first try to implement the solution using React Native, and eventually in Swift if the React Native solution was not performant enough. Business-wise, the goal was to offload this work as a mostly isolated task, allowing Diffia's own employees and contractors to focus on other tasks.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Riseapps was recommended to Diffia through one of our technological advisors, who had very positve experiences with them from previous projects. The deciding factor for hiring Riseapps was their immediate availability, clear communication and apparent understanding of the task at hand.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

At the start of the project, Riseapps' developer was given access to the video platform, and instructed to program the simplest possible iOS app that would allow it to connect to the platform for a simple video meeting, with a rudimentary user interface. This was, at first, implemented in a React Native app.

When it turned out that integrating this code in Diffia's existing code base was difficult, due to dependency conflicts, Riseapps promptly provided a functionally equivalent implementation in Swift. No other services were provided by Riseapps, and their work was done in isolation from Diffia's code base.

What was the team composition?

Riseapps provided a single iOS developer who did the all the coding work. Daily coordination with Diffia was done via a dedicated Slack channel.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

This project allowed Diffia to implement the code-level support for the video platform within the planned time and budget constraints.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

After an initial meeting, the start of the project was delayed because of a delay in preparing the test server for the video solution. However, Riseapps was not at all to blame for this, and to their great credit, they started work immediately once the test environment was up and running.

We agreed that Riseapps' developer would post a daily status update in a dedicated Slack channel, and otherwise ping Diffia's developers if he needed anything. This worked excellently, and the administrative overhead was kept at a minimum.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Riseapps impressed us with their ability to work independently with only high-level instructions from us. There was no micro-management necessary. They produce code that is of excellent quality and great value.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Had we known more about the issues integrating React Native code into our non-React Native application, we would have ordered the development to be done in Swift right away. Maybe, in an ideal world, we could have communicated even better with Riseapps before the project started, to uncover this earlier.

However, this was one of the technological risks the project was designed to clarify, and the "failure" of going the React Native route has been a valuable data point for Diffia in deciding which platforms to use going forward.

Feedback summary: 

Riseapps delivered functional apps, proving to be a professional and skilled partner. Their design insights and experience building healthcare products added value to the process. The team was amenable to scope changes and adjusted communication levels according to each project phase.

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 of Noho Medical, Inc.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Riseapps?

We built an at-home pulmonary rehab product for patients that have COPD, a pulmonary disease. A traditionally effective therapy is called pulmonary rehabilitation, but it’s only offered at physical locations. People have a hard time getting to these locations, and there aren’t enough of them. Now, given COVID-19, a lot of the rehab centers are closed. Our company has built a digital, at-home version of that intervention.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Riseapps built out a set of healthcare apps. They developed a backend, a web frontend, an iPhone app, and an Android app.

What is the team composition?

We’ve interfaced directly with two different product managers (the initial one ended up leaving the company), the CEO, and a designer. There were at least 2–3 devs working on the project, and the product managers communicated with them directly on our behalf. 

How did you come to work with Riseapps?

I believe we found Riseapps online when we put out a project and asked different companies to bid on it. There were a number of different outsource development shops that we spoke to and considered. Riseapps had experience with all of the technologies that we wanted to use. They’ve also built other healthcare apps, so they were familiar with HIPAA and other regulations. They were very communicative from the start; I had a conversation with Vladlen (CEO), and it seemed like they answered all of our questions very well. 

How much have you invested with them?

My company has spent around $130,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our work together began in July 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We don’t have any hard measures of use because we were building from scratch. The only way we can measure success is through whether they met timelines and delivered the functionality that we wanted, both of which they did. They’ve made sure the apps do what we want them to do.

Their developers are generally very good. Their work is especially good at the design stage. We’re not designers, and I was happy that we didn’t just get a pure implementation of what we asked for; they actually gave us ideas around how to improve what we were doing, or pointed out issues that would come up with the original way we envisioned things. That’s what you want a professional for.

How did Riseapps perform from a project management standpoint?

Communication was good. It was a reasonable, good working relationship. They’re remote, so all of our communication was over Google Hangouts, Zoom, Slack, and email. Toward the end of the build, when we were fixing bugs and finishing everything up, we were communicating daily. The minimum amount of communication we had throughout the lifecycle was once a week, when they were implementing first versions of things. It ranged from there.

The timelines were adjusted, but it was reasonable. We missed the initial deadline because we asked for several changes as the product was developed. Our agreement wasn’t fully spec’d out initially because we wanted to get going quickly, so everything was an estimate, and then things got fleshed out as we were building. We were delayed about a month or two from the initial estimate, but I found that to be reasonable, as it was due to changes that we requested.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were very professional throughout the whole project. For example, they provided roadmaps, used technologies for development like Jira, communicated through Slack, and were responsive to changes and asks – all of those things paint a picture of people who have done this before and have done it well.

Are there any areas they could improve?

A little bit more communication toward the end would have been helpful. We were having daily meetings, but it was sometimes hard to pin down exactly where we were at on certain tasks. We would’ve liked some more transparency toward the final steps of the project. 

Any advice for potential customers?

Invest in communication upfront, which is advice I’d give to anyone working with any kind of development shop. It’s better to over-communicate in the beginning than to have issues come up later.

I am the Founder and CEO of a travel platform which provides and end-to-end service for travelers looking to get inspired, plan, book, travel, and share. We are an early stage startup with an international team but based in Switzerland.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Riseapps?

We needed to design and build the first version of the app. We engaged with Riseapps to do everything from initial ideas to product ready for app store launch.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a high quality product which could be launched on the app store.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We searched for companies and found Riseapps to be the best value for what we were looking.

Describe the project in detail.

We first worked on the design based on my original ideas and specifications. After finishing the app design and performing some tests with users we began the development phase. Development lasted for about 6 months until we had a product ready for beta testing. We are now starting beta testing.

What was the team composition?

The project manager assigned to the project was our main contact point for organization and driving the project. There were iOS developers, a backend developer, QA engineers and the designer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Based on our initial design and mockups, we have gotten 500 sign ups for the beta test. We will see how the beta test goes and how the product launch performs on the app store but we are confident!

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The team was very easy to communicate with and they were flexible. We could always count on them to provide the answers to questions, challenge us, and respond very quickly to our requests.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The end to end capabilities of the team were really great. They have all the knowledge and experience to execute a great project and it really helped us.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The product is really great. In order to avoid confusion sometimes, I could recommend to always ask for clarification if something is not totally clear. It can avoid extra time or discussions later on.

Feedback summary: 

Riseapps did a fantastic job. They were brought into a challenging situation and were able to provide comprehensive solutions. Their team worked well together and worked in an agile method. Their management is very hand-on, which resulted in a smooth workflow.  

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 of a travel startup. It’s an instant booking platform for hotels.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Riseapps?

We were in development and they helped us through one of our phases. We brought them on several months after we initially started, so we needed their help addressing different bugs.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They helped with certain aspects of the frontend. They came in and filled in some of the holes and gaps that we needed. That was connecting the hotels to our platform and fixing a few of those plugins. They also researched a few different software for us to use. They identified Sabre Travel Software, which they worked extensively with. They were very agile in the way the worked and touched on a little bit of everything.

What is the team composition?

I worked with a lot of people across different teams, but in development, there was one main person.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $2,000 per month (approximately $14,000 in total).

What is the status of this engagement?

The project started in August 2019 and ended in February 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They did a fantastic job with what they were given. They achieved the results we were looking for. We would definitely work with them again and recommend them to others.

How did Riseapps perform from a project management standpoint?

They did a very good job, especially with the challenges with our project that existed before we brought them on. Their members worked on the project with people across several time zones, and they did a great job managing everything. They delivered a quality product on time.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We’ve worked with a lot of other different agencies, but I liked that they worked well as a team. They all worked from the same office, which helped a lot. Their CEO is very hands-on and responsive. With any tech product, it’s helpful to have a team lead at the top who is very hands-on. In the past, we’ve been challenged with that when we’ve worked with junior developers or uninvested team members, so they stand out in that regard. We could tell that they’re experienced. They’re also competitively priced.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There isn’t anything I can think of. They did a good job.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Start with them from the very beginning of your project. One of the challenges we faced was trying to fix mistakes that were already done by other developers. If we brought them on in the beginning, the transition would have been easier and the learning curve wouldn’t have been as big.

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 CTO of Noho Med, which is a healthcare company that provides digital resources to patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Riseapps?

We needed to build a digital tool for users.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Riseapps created our principal digital tool, which is our pulmonary rehab program that consists of HIPPA-compliant mobile and web apps. The platforms contain chat and video features using the latest streaming technology.

Their team helped us to design the app using tools such as Adobe Sketch. Then, they coded the apps and continue to code the mobile apps principally. Their team both writes and deploys the code.

On the web app, their team used Django and Python. They wrote the app in a mixture of JavaScript and TypeScript. Their team used the React Native framework for the mobile app, which is both an Android and iOS app.

What is the team composition?

We work with a project manager and probably 3–4 developers. We’ve scaled the resources up and down. Right now, we work with two developers.

How did you come to work with Riseapps?

My co-founder found Riseapps. We took in three separate bids for our project. We considered the cost and the caliber of the company as well as how they would work with our particular set of circumstances. We decided that Riseapps had the best combination of those considerations.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent about $100,000 with Riseapps.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began designing the app in August 2019 and the project’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’m pleased with the quality of the code. Their code was easy to read. I’ve had no issues managing their code.

I was a little disappointed with the quality assurance. We decided that we wanted to help alpha test the app, which I would recommend against for future customers. We found bugs that I wouldn’t consider alpha bugs. We didn’t have a good process in place, which was on us. 

How did Riseapps perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management was the one area where I wasn’t entirely satisfied. We had an issue at the beginning of our project. Through no fault of their own, the project manager who managed our project left the company and Riseapps assigned a new project manager. It’s a difficult situation when the person who designed your app leaves before the development.

Other than that, they did a good job with project management. It’s a helpful layer to have. They take care to make sure that our requirements are translated appropriately for their developers.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Riseapps combines high-quality work and reasonable pricing. I’m impressed with the knowledge and technical abilities of their developers.

Are there any areas they could improve?

For the most part, the project went really well. I strongly recommend them. They could’ve mentioned that we didn't have the recipe for success before we had difficulties with the project. If the project management switch didn’t occur, I would be more satisfied. When the switch occurred, we didn’t leverage their CEO as much as we could’ve, which was a mistake of ours.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Make sure to have a complete agreement about the schedule and the requirements for each part of the schedule. Looking to do something late and leaving things ambiguous is not a recipe for success. Focus on the early part of the design and development. To the extent that there were frustrations with the development, it usually came out of a lack of adequate preparation during the design phase. When we didn’t agree on a feature completely, we ended up being frustrated. Once everyone’s in agreement, there’s little room to be unhappy. Make sure that the CEO’s involved whenever a difficult transition arises.

We needed to develop an MVP for an access rights management and data sharing web application. Riseapps carried out the entire SDLC, including design, backend development, frontend development, and testing.

What were your goals for this project?

The web application focused on assisting patients and doctors with sharing and managing the results of medical research. The application had to be capable of genomic data transport, secure sharing, and long term archival.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Riseapps was selected among many other vendors. Their experts commanded loyalty during the introductory call and the following tech meetings. The team has shown robust expertise as well as integrity and clarity in negotiating.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Riseapps built an MVP for a web application, which is basically an access rights management system. As mentioned earlier, they carried out the entire SDLC.

What was the team composition?

Riseapps team consisted of a project manager, development staff, and a QA engineer.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Founder and Director of a sports data distribution company. Our product is the most innovative, comprehensive, and up-to-date source of data and statistics on the internet, as well as mobile devices, for a very specific sport.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Riseapps?

Initially, the improvement of the existing iOS platform. Subsequently, the full re-build of our app for iOS and Android, as well as push notifications to our user base.

What were your goals for this project?

Primary goal was to clean-up and stabilize our code, which was already 8 years old. More importantly, the task was to then rebuild our app, from scratch, in order to bring the code up to date, and also reach users on the Android platform.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Conducted a web search, followed by audio/video conference calls with the various company directors to discuss our needs vs. their skill-sets to see where we find the best fit.

Describe the project in detail.

Once RiseApps was selected, they conducted a "discovery" phase, during which they became familiar with our product, and got a good feel for our issues and needs. A time and cost proposal was prepared, reviewed, adjusted, and eventually signed off... and then we got to work.

What was the team composition?

Given logistics and timezones, we agreed to manage all activities through a single point of contact, that being a RiseApps Project Manager, as well as a robust online ticketing system. Behind the scenes, RiseApps adjusted their team size and skillset composition at various times, given the needs of the project.

However, given the very specific nature of the application, a core base of developers were kept for the duration, in order to maintain app knowledge continuity, and reduce onboarding new staff, who would then have to go through a significant learning curve.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Over the past two years, we stabilized the original iOS code, and subsequently, re-built the entire app for iOS and Android ... since which, we have had numerous additional app updates and upgrades.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow is the single biggest success factor of our partnership. By having a very detailed online ticketing system, and having a clear understanding of how tickets are opened, addressed, tested, signed-off, and released, we have managed to have a very clear workflow, that all parties follow.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The commitment to achieve the expected result was key ! We had a very significant deadline that was severely missed, however, the company agreed to continue development, at no cost, until which time the pre-defined product milestone/deliverable had been achieved.

This was an incredible revelation about RiseApps, their CEO, and his commitment to our partnership. It was surely not an easy period for them, or for us, but it has made for a much stronger partnership.

Are there any areas for improvement?

After 2+ years of partnership, the team now has a very clear view into the app and its complexities. As a result, when new tasks are defined, the delivery timelines are becoming much more realistic, although there is room for improvement.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder of a platform that facilitates the discovery of new people and events through similar interests.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Riseapps?

I hired Riseapps to create a UX/UI design for the mobile application. Before the mobile app could be programmed, it needed a design. This would also help to serve as an explanation for the app as well as capture interest in the project. Riseapps created the final design, in a clickable-prototype form.

What were your goals for this project?

The goal for the project was to complete the design stage of the application, which is a prerequisite for the development stage. Keeping in mind that the app was made for the everyday person looking to connect and expand their network, our aim was to have a UI design that was very straightforward and offered a powerful user experience.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Many different companies were considered and interviewed. Criteria included prior work (portfolio), experience in similar projects/tools, price, turnaround time, and adequacy of the company team. Riseapps was selected out of a pool of 15+ candidates due to a reasonable price, diligence of the team, and experience in designing similar applications. This meant that the vendor would be able to understand my specifications and achieve the desired outcome.

Describe the project in detail.

The scope of the projected was the UI design, including features such as a live map, an itemized feed, messaging system, profile page, and notification. This was all taken into account when creating the initial design, starting from a mindmap and wireframes, and ending with a functioning clickable prototype.

On my end, I contributed documentation such as a user story, a UI mockup, some examples of similar applications, and general guidelines for the app features. The vendor was responsible for creating a unique UI design that would incorporate the features while making the interface appealing for the end-user. The application was developed for a focus on iOS (iPhone) in mind.

What was the team composition?

The team was composed of two people: a project manager and a graphics designer. Communication was done through the project manager, who facilitated the discussion and supervised the graphics designer's work. The size of the team stayed constant.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The final design generated a lot of positive reception about the good-looking app interface. The result of the project reaches my expectations and goals. The design is very modern and in touch with the current design principles.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was very effective, the project manager communicated on time and would always summarize our calls and e-mail regarding any new developments. This helped us stay on track and ensured that there were no misunderstandings.

The team responded to feedback always, and from a management standpoint everything was done smoothly. I did offshore, however, I did not experience any issues due to language barriers. The team's English was better than most other companies. Time zone differences were reconciled by meeting at a mutually convenient time.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

In relation to my project, the biggest strength that Riseapps had was their previous work. They had a strong portfolio that demonstrated that they were experienced. This included similar types of apps, as well as apps with stunning design. This made them unique and set them apart from other companies.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I was very satisfied with the final result of the design process, and in terms of project everything was done well, including the quality of work, turnaround time, and diligence of the team. If there was anything that could be improved upon, it would be the communication of cost/hours, as it slightly ended up spilling over the designated budget towards the end without me being aware.

To avoid this, I could have also done a better job on my side of communicating and making certain design decisions more clear. For the most part, it was very consistent with the cost estimates that were given before the start of the project, and it's not a problem/concern because all developers & designers know things may take longer than initially expected.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the COO of a start-up based in Copenhagen. Our goal is to deliver healthcare services to our customers at their convenience.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Riseapps?

We needed at app where the customer could get in touch with health care professionals via video consultation and ensure that payment was collected. The app needed a queue system in the event where all consultants are busy.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted an app with the basic functionality needed for a test with a closed user group (approx. 500 users). During this test we want to see: 

  1. are the users willing to pay for such a service
  2. could the system handle the larger amount of users
  3. get feedback on the service and user experience.
SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found RiseApps via Upwork. We selected a number of vendors and did interviews. RiseApps did a thorough job in understanding our needs and giving us detailed feedback and estimation of our requirement specification. RiseApps were not the cheapest but they won the selection on their ability to understand our needs. That and a very thrust-building interview with Vladlen (CEO) made the choice easy.

Describe the project in detail.

Prior to engaging with RiseApps we had created a solid functional requirement specification. We used RiseApps to review and update the UX and create a design for us. As this was an MVP we did not use a lot of time and money on the UX and design - we are however very satisfied what was created. We had however (due to own impatiency) started the development of the app.

In a very short time RiseApps had established user creation (including e-mail verification), login, forgot password, logout (Firebase) and initial video consultation (Twillio). Some rework had to be done due to the changed UX and design (but this was our own fault). Payment (Stripe) was integrated without any bugs! When we started testing internally new requirements where identified and specified. RiseApps was quick to ensure ressources so the project could continue.

What was the team composition?

Throughout the whole project Lucy (Project Manager) has been our contact regarding everything except deep technical clarifications (in these cases our CTO could talk directly with the developers). We had one lead developer and one tester assigned to the project. All have been very service minded, helpful and knowledgable.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

From a project execution point of view, cooperation with RiseApps has been a success. RiseApps quickly understood what we were trying to achieve and have challenged us during the development process. RiseApps have taken our budget, deadline, and requirements seriously. I have worked with many software companies. The quality of the work done by RiseApps is definitely comparable - price and service level is just much better.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We planned with one-week iterations with a meeting reviewing the previous iteration and kicking off the next iteration. All code has been reviewed by our CTO and feedback has been taken seriously. RiseApps have been able to work independently - unclarities we have handled via Slack.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Service level! Riseapps have been able to fulfill all the development needs we have had. They have acted proactively and taken our targets seriously. Quality of work: Comparable to every other software company I have worked with.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Even though the team has been very friendly and open then I believe we should have prioritized a face-2-face meeting. It would most probably have resulted in even better cooperation.
