The Review
Feedback summary: 

The completed e-commerce platform increased sales from under 10 to several hundred orders per week. RobustTechHouse’s cost-effective backend team and agile project managers give customers clear expectations in meeting technical requirements.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We sell refurbished electronics in various countries, including Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines, primarily focusing on smart devices (phones, tablets, and computers, to some extent).

I am the founder and CEO of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RobustTechHouse?

We were looking for a company that could help us build our e-commerce website.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

RobustTechHouse built our e-commerce engine, website, and online store. The platform utilizes the Spree backend system.

We originally intended to build a mobile app as a store front, but it was not completed due to some delays on our side. RobustTechHouse scoped and designed it for us; they will also be the ones to develop it.

How did you come to work with RobustTechHouse?

I know one of RobustTechHouse's owners. He paid a visit and described what the company could do for us. Based on this, we chose RobustTechHouse for our website development.

How much have you invested with RobustTechHouse?

The cost of RobustTechHouse's work has been in the region of $30,000 to $40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with RobustTechHouse two years ago. The development took a total of six months to complete. RobustTechHouse continues to maintain our site and provide minor enhancements.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Before engaging RobustTechHouse, we were using an old e-commerce site which had an amateurish look. Their team reworked our entire site into a much more professional looking and robust platform. Since then, we have seen a significant increase in terms of traffic and conversions.

We used to have fewer than 10 orders per week; since we were new to e-commerce ourselves, most of our sales were being made offline at the time. Since embarking on the new platform, we have increased numbers to several hundred orders per week.

How did RobustTechHouse perform from a project management standpoint?

RobustTechHouse's project manager is quite good. She lived up to our expectations in terms of delivery and had a good sense of business requirements. Overall, the project was well managed, despite working with a remote team in Vietnam. There were times when we needed to rush items, but RobustTechHouse pulled through most of the time. We used Slack for tracking the development and for communicating with the team.

What did you find most impressive about RobustTechHouse?

RobustTechHouse has a very good manager who is able to set customers' expectations in terms of requirements and the capabilities of the backend team. Overall, RobustTechHouse is strong in terms of project management. They can get things done on time and will rush in order to prevent delays.

Are there any areas RobustTechHouse could improve?

RobustTechHouse is lacking in skill sets for app development, which is one of the reasons for the delay in our own project.

4.0
Overall Score RobustTechHouse's team was responsive and understood our needs, especially in terms of website development, but not so much for the app.
  • 4.0 Scheduling
    ON TIME / DEADLINES
    The delay was mostly in terms of our app. RobustTechHouse wasn't able to move fast enough because they were coming from a web technical standpoint. Translating our business needs into technical requirements involved a lot of work from our side.
  • 4.5 Cost
    Value / within estimates
    We got what we wanted for the price we paid. RobustTechHouse is not an expensive company.
  • 4.0 Quality
    Service & deliverables
    Results have been based on the overall project management. There were several members from our own side working with them, so RobustTechHouse has had to manage all of those resources. They've been patient in gathering requirements from us.

    Willing to refer
    RobustTechHouse has done a good job overall, and I would recommend them to friends and other businesses.
