Feedback summary: 

The final product delivered by ROCKETECH is highly professional, informative, and aesthetically pleasing. Their team was accomodating and communicative throughout their work with the client, helping them to successfully A/B test all features of the new site before launch.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

MultiCold is a project of the Russian developer RAM Group, which has been operating in the field of construction and subsequent rental of the warehouse since 2011. This is a network of large-scale food multi-temperature distribution centers that provide refrigeration and freezing storage areas for storing goods of various low-temperature regimes.

Since 2014, the company has embodied the reality of most of its plans and has come to a result that can be proud of. We have become one of the largest Moscow networks specializing in the construction and management of industrial real estate, improving the turnover among manufacturers, wholesale companies and the end consumer. I am a Commercial Director and Chief project curator.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with the vendor?

We rebranded and needed a quality contractor with whom we could precisely complete the project in a short time. ROCKETECH quickly and actively engaged in this work.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Have a beautiful corporate website and partner with whom we can work on our other projects.

What is the team composition?

There were about 8 people in total. Including Business analyst, Designer, Developers, QA testers, and Marketing team division.

How did you come to work with them?

We chose by portfolio selection, ability, and flexibility, qualifications of people working in the company, reviews, and similar implemented projects.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The site has helped our sales and, as a whole, has become a reliable brand tool for our group of companies, which shows the seriousness of the company to our employees, partners, and customers.

How did the team perform from a project management standpoint?

It was well organized and led by an experienced business analyst. I especially appreciated their team's understanding and flexibility with the internal financial processes of our company. In other words, the work in the process was provided before the amount paid.

There were a lot of conversations, documents, and calls, and all of them led to our results. We are grateful to this company for its productive work and the flexibility shown, which absolutely gives the result!

What did you find most impressive about them?

Direct communication with all team members, I liked openness and competence. It is very difficult at times to speak, only with the manager, the whole team is needed in order for ideas to be conveyed better and embodied faster.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I would like to advise the ROCKETECH team as one of their products to make the development of many different design variations and quickly conduct A / B testing on a real audience.  In my opinion, if the guys can implement my recommendations, it will be valuable to customers and will distinguish them from other competing companies by their personalized approach and quality of execution.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Work with them!

Feedback summary: 

ROCKETECH successfully guided the project through the early stages of development. They suggested an efficient model of releasing test products and iterating based on user feedback. Their team was communicative and always clear with timeframe and budget concerns. 

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 BookWA, a mobile social network for people who like to read books. Users can talk about books, give feedback about ones they’ve already read, and receive information about books they’d like to read. The company is based in Moscow.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ROCKETECH?

I’d developed my business offline, but decided to go online by building an app. I connected with ROCKETECH and worked with them to build the app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I developed a business model for the app together with ROCKETECH. I designed the structure and they worked with me to modify and expand it. We added more logic to make it a bit simpler and friendlier for the users. We only developed an iOS version.

In regard to features I wanted to add, ROCKETECH gave me advice and corrected some of my decisions. We worked to build the features in a correct and simple way for potential users.

They helped me gather users for testing features and gathering feedback. We used that feedback to implement new features and modify the ones we’d already developed. After the first step, I didn’t have a clear direction, and ROCKETECH again went over the app with me. They helped me correctly implement new features, helping define and prioritize the aspects of the project.  Their team advised me to move the subsidiary features to the next stages of development rather than spending money at that moment. This helped me manage the financing of the whole development process.

The app is currently deployed to TestFlight, and we plan to finish development and deploy it to the App Store in a couple of months.

What is the team composition?

In the beginning, I had a six-person team, including Alexander, who was the team lead. The team was rather expensive at that stage. Currently, we have just a couple of guys in this team—one member is responsible for the frontend, and the other is responsible for the backend.

How did you come to work with ROCKETECH?

I’d worked with another team before ROCKETECH, and the collaboration went poorly. I found out that they were using ROCKETECH to develop my app, so I contacted them directly.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested $10,000–$20,000 thus far.

What is the status of this engagement?

I started working with ROCKETECH around July 2018, and the collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Right now, I’d say that the app is 75–80% developed and available in TestFlight. They also recommended me a book about lean startups, which stated I didn’t need to develop everything in production. That means I can test features with users and get their feedback. If that process works, I can implement features in the final version.

At the beginning of the contract, I developed it to be ready for the App Store. Of course, that was my mistake, and ROCKETECH just did what I told them. We developed a testing model for the App Store, and I received a lot of feedback from the users that tested it. Afterward, I understood that it should be redeveloped and redesigned. 

At this moment, we’re developing features for the testing project. We didn’t invest too much in the backend and focused on the frontend so that users could test features. When users told me that a feature was good, I understood that I could invest more money to develop it for the production model. We were usually on time and on budget. If we had to negotiate terms, we did so.

At this stage, I’d say that 80% of the features are in production and 20% are in testing.

How did ROCKETECH perform from a project management standpoint?

They did well with project management. Before we started developing features, we agreed on a time and budget. We use WhatsApp, Telegram, and Skype for communication.

Alexander (Project Manager, ROCKETECH) is my project manager now. I had a different one for the first six months of the project, but after that Alexander took control over my app. I’m satisfied with Alexander’s work. He controls how all the features are developed. If I need to make a call with the team, he organizes it. The management is professional.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re clever and the effectiveness is high. They try to do the work as we agreed.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The user testing process they’ve implemented could be useful for them as well. I think that by working with current and potential customers, they could improve.

I also haven’t started the production process with them, and I would like to see how they handle that side of the business. I’ve started negotiations with the marketing team and heard their proposals.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Clients should understand what they want the final product to look like. Otherwise, it will be difficult for ROCKETECH to work. I’d advise spending more time drawing out the structure and the model so that everyone understands the final goal quite clearly. After that, you can start investing in development. It’s important to not invest too much money into production at the beginning, but rather use a user testing model.

It was chosen by the tender - the proposal of rocketech was better than the others (time & cost)

Describe the project in detail.

Inspite of having some communications problem with distribute development team (before we use just in-house development), we were able to create effective environment and project communications, so the result was quite similar to in-house development. But the costs were strongly less, cause of location of outsourcing team.

What was the team composition?

In-house application's architect, PM and designers, remote team of developers

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

it's an internal project, main goal was providing service to corporate users, so no one public outcome from the project could be demonstrate.

Communications has been in Trello, they were quite effective

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The most impressive part was the low cost while the quality and speed did not suffer.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CIO of Sport Management Ltd., a non-profit martial arts association.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Rocketech?

We engaged Rocketech to create an internal management system for our association.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a complete solution for organizing and managing events. It should allow users to easily navigate and find information about our association, competitions, athletes, products, and more as needed. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found it difficult to find a team of specialists on our own that would deliver on a complex project against tight deadlines without sacrificing quality. One of our partners recommended Rocketech to us. 

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

After listening to our ideas, Rocketech worked with us to sketch how the solution would look and function. The team then designed the UI/UX before building the front- and backend of the web solution. They included a theme feature that can adapt to our needs in real time.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a team architect, a project manager, an art director, a middle designer, a frontend middle designer, a backend middle designer, a team lead, and a few QA testers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The software has launched and changed the way we organize events. We’ve moved from paper documents and Excel tables to a digital solution to better oversee more than 400,000 people involved in our competitions. 

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Rocketech used to use Trello, Hubstaff, and Google Docs to manage our project. Now we use Jira to organize tasks, and we also have daily calls. The team is highly responsive and attentive to our project. They adapt quickly to changes in our needs and requests as required.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team is always eager to learn more and adapt to shifting challenges as they arise. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

Rocketech offers an impressive and clear work model, but they have room to improve how they manage small details in tasks and deadlines. I’m sure they will fix them down the road.
