Feedback summary: 

Ronas IT’s work has been met with positive acclaim. The team is technically skilled, has an excellent grasp of user needs, and responds well to feedback. Customers can expect an efficient team that exceeds expectations.

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 principal at a software company in San Francisco Bay Area. We specialize in highly interactive, visually oriented, technical analysis software for the financial services industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ronas IT?

We needed help with UI and web development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our software is very complex and we provide a lot of user options. We hired them to address specific interface issues on a case by case basis. They’ve also been responsible for designing several of our websites over the years.

We’ve worked with Alex on many different projects and they all begin with a detailed description of what we’re looking for. They would generally include visual examples, highlight a specific example, and sometimes we’d leave a design open-ended. In every case the, we would take those design concepts and get feedback

What is the team composition?

I work with Alex (Technical Lead Developer). We’ve had others come on time to time as projects come up and we’d pitch them to clients.

How did you come to work with Ronas IT?

We found them on a freelance platform.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent within the $25,000 – $50,000 range.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in 2015, and our relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

In all of the projects we’ve worked with Alex, we’ve been 95% pleased with the concepts. We sometimes give constructive criticism, but they typically exceed our expectations.

How did Ronas IT perform from a project management standpoint?

The project management is well organized. We use a variety of tools, as the cases dictated. When we get feedback, internally or externally, we would just give it to Alex and he would take care of it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We’ve been in business for many years and Alex’s approach to UI design has been pretty consistent with our own. He demonstrates an excellent understanding of user needs and all of his designs are creative and elegant in their simplicity. They’re very well thought out and have an excellent response to feedback. All of these qualities are why they’re our go-to user experience experts.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not really. They met our expectations 90% of the time and the other 10% we came to a good solution.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Invest enough time to specify the project upfront, and give them enough time to prepare. We’ve done that and our projects have never gone south.

Feedback summary: 

The website supported four million monthly users with minimal performance issues, which Ronas IT has been quick to solve. They delivered the site faster than expected and remain responsive to requests. Their top-notch customer service defines the 10-year partnership.

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 manager of a few websites in Silicon Valley.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ronas IT?

We hired them to build a very sophisticated website. We first contracted another vendor to build the site, but it didn’t stand up under a high traffic load. We contacted Ronas IT to fix the site, but they said the code was so bad that they had to rebuild it from scratch.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Ronas IT rebuilt the site in PHP, Apache, and MySQL using the Zend Framework. I’m happy it was built with a framework. They’ve also built other sites for us.

What is the team composition?

Initially, we worked with a full-time developer, a part-time tester, a part-time systems administrator (sysadmin), and a part-time graphic artist. The developer left the company about a year ago. Ronas IT didn’t have a replacement so we hired a person outside their company to fill in the position. Ronas IT has been gracious to the developer and let him work with the project manager and team.

How did you come to work with Ronas IT?

We found them on oDesk, which now goes by Upwork. It let us search contractors, read feedback and ratings by other customers, interview those customers, and hire them. We did that with Ronas IT and got very positive feedback from their customers. Because of that, we felt confident that they were a good team.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent over $250,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The partnership started in June 2009. We’re still working with them on a limited basis — about 3–4 hours per week. We’ve scaled it down since our developer at Ronas IT left a year ago and we found a new outside developer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The original timeline estimate was for six months, which we thought was optimistic. Ronas IT eventually finished the website in about a year. We tend to expect developers to take 3–4 times as much time as they estimate, so the fact that Ronas IT came in at just twice their estimate pleased us!

More importantly, the website quickly grew in traffic to four million visitors a month and withstood the heavy load. It’s a sophisticated, database-driven website. We’ve experienced some performance issues, but Ronas IT jumped right on and fixed those. Overall, we’re pleased with its performance.

We since have had them upgrade the site and work on another website for us. I’m really pleased with them and glad we found them. I’d be happy to recommend Ronas IT to other people who want to use them.

How did Ronas IT perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very responsive to our requests. Ronas IT’s engineers are very talented and capable, and they have very good English writing skills. We don’t speak very often; instead, we communicate in writing over email and our project management system. We’re using their system this day. It’s been helpful to control the project; it opens tickets and lets us communicate with the Ronas IT team.  Occasionally, we’ll text over Skype or SMS messages, and if something’s very important, I’ll talk to them on the phone.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We had one issue with an engineer that wasn’t doing what he was supposed to be doing. We turned that over to the project manager; they were clearly angry with the developer, didn’t charge us for those hours, and reassigned a new engineer. I was pleased with that.

However, Ronas IT also hasn’t upgrade servers to the latest version, which they probably should have. I asked them to because I was concerned about security. They turned down the request because we had a firewall and were unlikely to be attacked. Down the road, we found out that we wanted to use some new features on our website that weren’t available on older versions of our server software. I wonder if it was because we were on a tight development schedule, and that would have pushed our timeline. But I wish I could better understand their thought process.

Any advice for potential customers?

Things have gone smoothly for us, obviously. We’re still using them after over 10 years. I’d advise customers that are using them for sysadmin tasks to make sure they update your server applications.

Feedback summary: 

The team facilitated success by constantly getting the company involved in their design process, which allowed them to create designs that properly reflect the companies requirements. They demonstrated the capability of working independently will leveraging contemporary design trends.

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 manage Marshall Innovative Solutions, which is a software engineering company. We focus on custom software development, SharePoint initiatives, and mobile development and design. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ronas IT?

We hired them to help with our design initiatives. While creating a workflow in .NET, we wanted their input on improving our UX.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

After I created wireframes for the workflow on my end, we leveraged their team to translate those wireframes into Photoshop mockups and visual design artifacts. We also work with them on mobile designs for both iOS and Android.

What is the team composition?

We worked closely with Alex (Designer & Art Director) on many projects. I also collaborate with another mid-level graphic designer.  

How did you come to work with Ronas IT?

I first discovered them on Upwork. After obtaining a few referrals from others that have used them in the past, I decided to hire them. 

How much have you invested with them?

Our individual projects are typically pretty small. They typically cost about $350–$450. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started collaborating in May 2014, and I’m still working with them on an ongoing basis.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Alex does a wonderful job of translating our requirements into visual design artifacts. They needed little supervision, able to ideate on strong solutions. After two iterations, I often find that they go above and beyond the required scope of the project. They’re detail-oriented and able to put modern trends into practice.  

How did Ronas IT perform from a project management standpoint?

I use Microsoft DevOps for most of my agile projects, which allows me to assign resources and tasks to different members of the team. At the end of each sprint, their team always comes forward with a deliverable. Their work always aligns with our expectations. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their creative thinking process and willingness to engage in every part of the process was very impressive. They do a great job of involving stakeholders in the design process.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, they go far beyond the scope of work to achieve outcomes. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Reach out to their project manager ahead of time to discuss your deadline-oriented goals. From there, they can drive the creative parts of the process.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am one of the co-founders of Facta Behavioural Harmonics. Facta is the User Guide for your workplace relationships. We are a human resources & training company, focused on assisting organisations to create more positive and productive workplaces.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Ronas IT?

We hired Ronas IT to work with us as our production design partners. Ronas IT took our basic wireframes and completed a full UX/UI design and product development on the Facta platform. www.facta.com.au

What were your goals for this project?

The goal of the project was to create a basic MVP for beta testing. It included integration with a party provider. The team at Ronas surpassed the goals of the project and we ended up with a full-function product.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We interviewed a number of vendors across India, Russia and locally and Australia. As non-technical founders, we needed a partner who would challenge our thinking and provide ideas and alternatives. From the start, we had confidence that Ronas would do this and we were not disappointed when we started working together.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We aimed to create an employee engagement platform which was based on behavioural profiling. The project included full UX/UI design and engineering. Integration with a 3rd party provided was also required. Ronas completed all QA.

What was the team composition?

Ronas IT was able to form a team (max 4 at project peak) of specialists in UX/UI, Front End, Back End, Quality etc. After the first phase was completed, we have still been able to gain access to team members for continual improvements.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

At this stage, we are demonstrating the product and gaining user feedback. Universally, potential customers are commenting about the look and feel of the product. The project has allowed us to know test our theory and gain user feedback.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Our project manager, Evgeniy, was fantastic. Very responsive, challenged us respectfully and was always available. We used GitHub for communication as well as email and Hangouts. No issues with language between Russia and Australia.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We valued the input from the team and the level of communication. They had a very collaborative approach to the whole process. They worked with us when the project ran slightly over time (note, as novice founders we underestimated how much IT projects overrun) and would investigate solutions to issues without a concern.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The only area for improvement was the overrun on time of the project. With that said, this was mainly due to our lack of knowledge of IT projects as novice founders.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm a managing partner at an online marketplace that provides mineral owners in the United States with a place to sell the mineral rights for maximum value.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ronas IT?

We needed someone who could clean up our website and build on to what was already in place.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They mostly do maintenance. They build out a lot of new things to help us become more efficient, like automated email services and things like that that could be built into the system. They've also helped us create an auction system on the frontend.

What is the team composition?

We work with a primary developer and a server administrator who are extremely well qualified.

How did you come to work with Ronas IT?

We originally found them on UpWork.

How much have you invested with them?    

We've spent about $50,000 with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in March 2016, and our engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

From an efficiency standpoint, I'd say that their work has led to us not needing to hire people. Our cost savings far outweigh the amount of money we've spent with them,

How did Ronas IT perform from a project management standpoint?

They've performed extremely well. We communicate via GitHub, and a ticketing system.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their communication has been extremely fast and good. They're always on top of everything. A lot of our projects haven't been priorities, but there have been critical things like the website being down. When those things arise, they're on top of it even when it's after hours or vacation. They're very quick to make that happen.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, honestly, I don't think so.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

My advice is to make sure whatever technology stack you're looking to deal with matches up to what their development team has ready in terms of staffing.
