Feedback summary: 

RNF met the project specifications on time and within the quoted budget. After the initial deliverables were rolled out, this client received several positive comments about the improvements from the web portal subscribers.

BACKGROUND

Please introduce your company/organization and your role there.

MP2 Energy is based in The Woodlands, TX and serves customers in Texas and the Northeast to Mid-Atlantic states. MP2 generates electricity, manages large commercial electric loads, and provides retail electric services to commercial, industrial, and residential customers. I have worked with MP2 Energy since February 2009 and have held the position of IT Director since January 2011. I currently manage all IT and communications infrastructure, business continuity, security, and related vendors. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What overall challenge were you trying to address with RNF Technologies?

MP2 Energy has a subscriber web portal at http://portal.mp2energy.com, originally developed in 2009 with a mixture of PHP, JavaScript, and JSP. When we engaged RNF technologies, the goal was to unify the codebase into a single technology and framework and to make the site responsive and browser-agnostic. 

SOLUTION

What did the project scope entail?

RNF duplicated the existing portal functionality using a PHP framework and added additional functionality such as subscriber profile modifications and AJAX-based dynamic data updates.

How did you come to work with RNF Technologies?

I received a call from an RNF sales rep in February 2015, right at the time we were developing the requirements for revamping the web portal. RNF was evaluated, along with 2 other local web-development firms, and compared against the logistics of in-house development. In the end, the greatest value seemed to come from RNF, so they were given the opportunity to develop the first phase of the web portal additions.

Approximately how much have you invested with them?

It has been over a year since our last engagement with RNF, but I believe the total project length was about 5 months, and during that time we spent approximately $30,000 with RNF.

What is the status of this engagement?

RNF completed the initial phase of our GRID portal improvements in September 2015. There are additional modifications and enhancements that are under consideration, in which case RNF would be invited to quote and participate.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that demonstrates their quality of work or the impact of the engagement on your company?

RNF met the project specifications on time and within the quoted budget. After the updates were rolled out, we received several positive comments about the improvements from the portal subscribers.

How did RNF Technologies perform in terms of project management specifically?

The project was managed well, communicated effectively, and completed within the timeframe required.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The project did not go over budget, and project managers were flexible with meeting times.

Are there any areas of improvement?

It seemed that there was a slight delay in development progress when the particular PHP framework was changed mid-stream. I believe this was due to some developer resource changes, and I felt it would have been better to stick with the original framework through the completion of the first phase.

I am the CTO of a technology solutions provider company. We work mostly in the mortgage space.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RNF Tech?
We needed developers for a couple of projects we were working on. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We supply the scope and needs. Then, the developers from RNF deliver the code to implement into our production environment. We originally needed 1 additional resource but we have added a second because we have been pleased with the first one. We may add more resources in the near future.

How did you come to work with RNF Tech?

We interviewed 5 other companies. RNF seemed to have the best staff and skill sets available. Plus, they were within our budget.

How much have you invested with RNF Tech?

At this point, we have spent approximately $45,000 on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them over a year ago. We are still in the process of working with them and don’t plan on making any changes. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

We really only gauge their performance based on if coding deadlines are met. We are pleased thus far.

Our contact Hilal was fantastic. He made sure things were moving along. We definitely knew that he would step in at any point if we ever ran into any communication issues.

What did you find most impressive about RNF Tech?

We are enjoying how fast they get things done. They are also quite ready to help and eager to start on new projects. They also document their time really well, which is usually a huge problem with subcontractors.

Are there any areas where RNF Tech could improve?

Nothing I can think of at this time.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with RNF Tech?

They seemed great right from the get-go.

Feedback summary: 

It is still early to measure precisely, but the client is pleased with the new sales coming in that are due to the new websites. The RNF project manager was also particularly praised for his responsiveness and keeping in touch.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the president and owner of Process Engineering Products Company, Inc. (PE Products), an industrial products distributor and manufacturer's representatives for industrial heating, sensing, and control products. Founded in 1979, we are a family owned company in Richmond, Virginia. The extrusion market is our specialty, but PE Products is also able to meet the unique needs of the chemical, fiber, food, packaging, and pharmaceutical industries. For all of our clients, the goal is the same: to provide the latest tech, start-up assistance, and training in order to enhance your efficiency, proficiency, and profits.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RNF Technologies?

We had five existing websites, but none were mobile-friendly and all needed great improvements. Since we did not have a staff person to address these needs, we had to go outside for help.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Actually, RNF Technologies took all the information from our existing website and moved it over to the mobile-friendly site. In addition, they used a template that we had internally to price instruments board by board and replicated it onto the Eurothermonline.com website so that our customers and prospects could build their own instruments. We worked together to find the right look and feel of the website with their expertise.

How did you come to work with RNF Technologies?

We had started working with them on an online marketing project to help us improve our Google ranking for about 100 keywords and phrases. Even today, it's a great partnership.

How much have you invested with RNF Technologies?

I believe that we contracted the first site, Eurothermonline.com, for $15,300 and are now paying $200 per month for the first 6 months for upkeep and changes. The second website was a few thousand dollars less, but we paid up front to save us some tax money. This one is Gefranonline.net, and it is due to be launched in mid-January 2017.

What is the status of this engagement?

I have been in contact with RNF Technologies since December 2015. We will continue to have them improve our other existing websites as well as others to come, as long as we can continue to agree on the costs and monthly fees. So far, we have not been disappointed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It's a little hard to give exact metrics, but we now have daily sales from new customers all across North America. Though not all are direct orders on the website, we have new customers contacting us by phone and email, and there would be no other way that they would know who we are than with this new website. I figure that it will take 6 to 9 months to see a full payback and profit from there.

How did RNF Technologies perform in terms of project management?

Mohammad Murtaza did an excellent job of project management by phone, text, and email. When we encountered a mistake, usually because of us, they have been quick to make the appropriate changes.

What did you find most impressive about RNF Technologies?

I appreciated their sense of humor as well as their desire to do a great job and work around our schedule.

Are there any areas where RNF Technologies could improve?

Many times, the background noise on the phone calls and conference calls made communications difficult. Sometimes, we rescheduled when they could have a quiet conference room in which to meet.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with RNF Technologies?

Just tell them when you are unhappy with anything and expect them to handle it within a day or so.

The game has over 20 million downloads with an average user rating of 4.5 or higher. The client particularly appreciated RNF Technologies’ willingness to work with a tight deadline and an iterative scope, since flexibility is crucial for game development.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a mobile game development company. We focus on social casino game development for iOS, Android, and Facebook platforms. Our gaming portfolio has several very successful titles with over 20 million downloads across the world. Our prime markets are the United States and Europe, where we have several titles in the top 50 games in the dice category. I serve as the products director for the company and currently overlook product development.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RNF Technologies?

In August 2013, we were going through a transition in our team and were struggling with a December deadline for 2 key apps. RNF's team was able to understand our situation and their experienced project managers and developers were just the right people for the job. Although we were not able to meet the deadline for one of the apps, I take nothing away from RNF, as they did everything to help us and went as far as working on the weekends for the games.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We wanted to keep the design in-house, so we only contracted RNF Technologies to develop the game engine, game analytics, and admin backend based on the algorithms we created. RNF also provided a very thorough manual and automated testing service to ensure the product we were taking to the market was impeccable.

How did you come to work with RNF Technologies?

We contacted RNF along with several other vendors to augment our development team and help us meet our launch deadlines. We initially went with RNF because of their track record in game development, flexible payment schedule, and most importantly their willingness to work with a near-impossible deadline.

How much have you invested with RNF Technologies?

The exact figure is confidential, but we have invested over $1 million with RNF over the years. We have an ongoing contract with them to develop and test mobile games for our portfolio.

What is the status of this engagement?

This is an ongoing engagement that started in August 2013, and we currently have a multi-year contract with RNF.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

For the app that we collaborated on with RNF, so far we have over 20 million downloads and an average user rating of 4.5 and above.

How did RNF Technologies perform in terms of project management?

Project management is one of the key strengths of RNF Technologies. They have a very experienced team, and their approach is more consultative and product-like, as opposed to a service delivery one where everything the client says is deemed out of scope. RNF is flexible in the way they work and allows room for scope iterations, which are very important for a game development company.

What did you find most impressive about RNF Technologies?

Their work ethic, flexibility, time management, and most importantly their knack for customer service.

Are there any areas where RNF Technologies could improve?

It is difficult to comment because we have been working with them for years with a dedicated team and a project manager; but if I have to say something, it could be their client onboarding process.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with RNF Technologies?

I think the best thing you can do is to discuss every minute detail of the project and have a general roadmap. It is always a good idea to share the vision for the project and underlying objectives, because in my experience with RNF, they will always point out things you completely overlooked.

RNF successfully delivered the new system, which many of the client's other usual vendors declined to take due to time constraints. The client particularly appreciated RNF's responsiveness and clear accountability.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work for The Search Agency as senior vice president, heading up the SEO [search engine optimization] team and our India operations. We specialize in all facets of digital marketing such as paid, earned, display, feeds, and analytics. We tend to partner with software development firms to help implement our recommendations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RNF Technologies?

One of our clients (whom I cannot disclose due to confidentiality reasons, but is a top-tier firm in the credit industry) came to us for paid and earned needs; they also wanted a complete re-haul of an extremely complex multi-tier application that required both front-end and backend development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The goal was to get a brand new system/website built in 90 days and sunset an old (20+ years) legacy system as seamlessly as possible. It was a monumental task, and a few of our regular vendors declined to take it on due to time constraints and penalties if they were late.

How did you come to work with RNF Technologies?

RNF had worked with me on some projects in the past, and I knew that they had a solid team in place that could potentially take this on.

How much have you invested with RNF Technologies?

That one project alone was about $250,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project was completed on time, and the client was quite pleased with the end product. Again, I cannot venture into details due to client confidentiality.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The client in reference has exchanged hands a few times; they are now completely owned by a separate entity with a new system in place due to being absorbed.

How did RNF Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

Both the co-founders were heavily involved: one from a tech standpoint and the other from a functionality standpoint. They ramped up on resources in an incredibly short time to ensure that the project was adequately staffed.

What did you find most impressive about RNF Technologies?

RNF was quick to respond, held themselves accountable, and very clear in their dealings. No hidden agenda.

Are there any areas RNF Technologies could improve?

It's been over 4 years since we pulled the project off. Over the years, I have worked on smaller engagements with the RNF team, and I feel that they have strengthened their offering and services model.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with RNF Technologies?

I would recommend looking at examples of work done and be vividly clear with your requirements.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RNF Technologies?

To go along with our relaunch, we wanted a mobile application to give our customers access to their business data, news, and video content. RNF helped us deliver that to our customers. They were key because we do not have in-house app development talent to do this work.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

RNF Technologies put together our mobile app based on the UI from our creative staff, as well as hooking up to our API to deliver reports and other metrics to our customers.

How did you come to work with RNF Technologies?

We interviewed a few companies and liked RNF’s quote the best; we loved how clearly RNF laid out the process and what we could expect and when.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the environmental health and safety improvement leader at a large Fortune 50 company with over 10,000 employees and contractors on site daily.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RNF Technologies?

We needed to create an app that would provide a quick resource for all employees and contractors working on site.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our goal was to design, develop, and deliver a complete app within six months of initiating the project, all within budget with the desired features we requested. We relied heavily on RNF to lead us down the best path for success of our app project, and we were very excited with the outcome under budget and ahead of schedule.

How did you come to work with RNF Technologies?

We evaluated and interviewed several app companies; RNF was the only company that brought a team to our location and shared with us ideas and their previous ventures. This was a selling point, as they were very passionate about the work they do and were very helpful by explaining in easy-to-understand language what our path forward could be if we chose them.

How much have you invested with RNF Technologies?

With development and completion of the project, along with a routine fee for monthly server and maintenance fees, we are in the range of around $65,000 YTD.

What is the status of this engagement?

We have a continuing relationship and frequently have phone sessions just to touch base or ask a question. Sometimes, they turn into full-blown meetings where we are networking to discuss future projects. We have a great relationship with RNF representatives.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

How did RNF Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

By being global and capable of working around the clock on our project, RNF made our updates very smooth for us. For example, we may have decided to change a direction one day, and the modifications were completed by the next day because they worked overnight on them.

What did you find most impressive about RNF Technologies?

The personal relationships we built with the representatives working on the project. The leadership at RNF understands your needs and then supports them throughout the project. They give it their personal focus to make sure you get the product you desire.

Are there any areas RNF Technologies could improve?

Maybe have more of a "what’s-available" list for newcomers to the app world, like what can we and can’t do. It would make it easier to understand for those of us who want the app but do not fully understand how they work.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with RNF Technologies?

Call them up, tell them what you want to do, and give them the opportunity to visit with you and share their ideas and expertise.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the owner and operator of Albatross Divers, a diving services company specializing in underwater vessel management. We are located in Pensacola, Florida.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RNF Technologies?

As our workload increased, we began facing many challenges managing our customers as well as the in-depth inspection reports that we provide for our customers. We were looking to eliminate excessive paperwork and double entry while completely automating our daily operations from start to finish.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our solution was to build a professional website that included a detailed web-based software program. The program offers endless capabilities to streamline daily operations, introducing better customer satisfaction while eliminating countless hours of office work.

How did you come to work with RNF Technologies?

After speaking to many others, I chose RNF Technologies because they offered to do all the many many details I asked of them at a fair price ($20,000).

What is the status of this engagement?

After only a couple of months, we are about to launch the new system that will revolutionize the way we handle our day-to-day operations.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

RNF Technologies has taken literally hundreds of fields that we needed and laid them out into this software. They have taken what seemed an eternity away and made it a reality in just a couple of short months.

How did RNF Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

Management of the project has gone well. Due to the complexity of the software that we needed, it did start a little slow; but we quickly made a game plan, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the customer support on their end.

What did you find most impressive about RNF Technologies?

I’m very impressed with RNF's capabilities and the can-do attitude of their team.

Are there any areas RNF Technologies could improve?

Sometimes, a few days will go by without hearing anything. At first, it made me nervous. Each time we talked, there was progress on their end, but a daily update would be nice.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with RNF Technologies?

The advice I can give others would be to have a strong idea of what you want RNF Technologies to build. Building from the ground up requires many details for what exactly you want and how you want to do it.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The multiple websites developed and improved by RNF are performing very well, especially considering their complex functionalities. The client appreciated the project management as well as RNF's dedication to understanding the client's goals.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I was the former director of marketing at a "Workplace-as-a-Service" provider, which is a reseller of virtual office spaces and meeting rooms around the USA, as well as internationally.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RNF Technologies?

RNF Tech was originally hired for SEO [search engine optimization]. After showing positive results with our website positioning, we decided to hire them for some small web development projects, which then expanded into an ongoing web development relationship over the course of several years.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had monthly ongoing SEO. Our web development tasks included: a shopping cart overhaul, allowing users to customize their virtual office online; front-end functionality; integration of telecom shopping cart and corresponding backend shared database, allowing users to choose their phone number and related features, as well as updating a shared database real-time with the telecom provider; and a full website overhaul, which included a complete re-working of the front-end to modernize the website's appearance.

RNF Tech also developed two more websites. One is an online real-time meeting room booking platform, and the other is a subscription-based service for recurring meeting room users that generates a virtual "card" with a monthly allocation of credits that can be used for any size meeting room. Small meeting rooms and day offices are assigned a cost of one or two credits, and larger meeting rooms and boardrooms have a cost of 3 or more credits. One-time bookings (or bookings by non-card holders) are paid for with dollars. Both websites worked together to allow for one-time or recurring meeting room bookings, customizable bookings and storing credit card information. Both websites have been redesigned and reworked since RNF's original design, as the "version 1" of each was completed years ago.

How did you come to work with RNF Technologies?

RNF originally cold-called us for SEO services, and we liked what they had to say. The decision to move forward with web development was made because we were very happy with the team, and they had experience with Drupal web development, which was the platform our original website was built on.

How much have you invested with RNF Technologies?

I would estimate this at $50,000 to $80,000, but it is hard to estimate because we had so many different projects with the RNF team.

What is the status of this engagement?

The timeline was roughly November 2011 to November 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The best evidence of the quality of their work is the Live Telephone Answering functionality as well as the process of purchasing a virtual office online.

How did RNF Technologies perform in terms of project management specifically?

We were always assigned a project manager with whom we held weekly meetings, as well as a very accurate online project management software where I could collaborate with the multiple developers who would be working on our various projects at any given time.

What did you find most impressive about RNF Technologies?

I would have to say it’s their ability to conform to almost any idea we had regarding our website and new functionality. Even in times where the team didn't have experience in a certain area, RNF would go above and beyond to ensure they properly researched the technology, understood the task at hand, or the particular vision of our chief executive officer.

Are there any areas RNF Technologies could improve?

In general, when having such a lengthy and extensive working relationship, of course, issues did arise at times. But I think areas of improvement were more in the hands of our team and the planning of our own projects. The issues that arose during our various projects always seemed to relate to our own lack of proper planning of a project or trying to push an unrealistic timeline on the RNF developers.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with RNF Technologies?

My advice would be to ensure you have a good relationship with your project manager from the beginning. If there are any issues with communication or responsiveness, RNF will assign someone else to work with you who is a better fit. Any issues we ever had were mediated and resolved by Imran or other executives.
