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 co-founder of Bridge Classrooms, an education communication platform. We’re focusing on bridging the gap between schools, parents, and teachers for a better upbringing of children.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RootQuotient?

A private tutor who we know told us the challenges that children face due to miscommunication between schools and their parents. My partner and I had the idea to build an application to solve this problem, but my co-founder and I didn’t have a technical background. We needed a team to build our mobile and web app and provide continuous support through all the product roadmap.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed our mobile and web applications from scratch. They’re using a cross-platform tool to create the mobile apps. We wanted to automate as many daily tasks as possible for the school’s management like tracking the attendance, maintaining the scorecards and report cards, obtaining the reviews from students for the teachers, ranking them, receiving feedback regarding their work from the parents, managing the school supply inventory for the school, etc.

They gave us a prototype after the requirement gathering phase was completed. The mobile app and web app for the same stakeholder have the same functionalities, but the features differ from stakeholder to stakeholder. They’re currently almost halfway through the project of the planned roadmap and we plan to launch this October.

What is the team composition?

There is a team of seven people. We’re mainly in contact with the project manager and one other member of their team.

How did you come to work with RootQuotient?

My friend had a really good experience with them in the past so I trusted their recommendation. 

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $20,000, but the estimate for the complete project is $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in June 2019 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’ve really helped us in converting prospects. The prototype is very much like an actual application and we’re able to click through and do a walkthrough of our product’s process, which is really helpful. 

How did RootQuotient perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been really helpful right from the ideation stage. They clearly explained the process of the collaboration upfront. We had frequent calls in the initial 30 days and discussed a lot of ideas. We have a clear roadmap and everything is going smooth so far. We now only have a call once or twice a day. We’ve also been given access to track the development process.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We like that they’re available 24/7 and are always within reach.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, there’s nothing I’d have them improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Listen to their suggestions. Giving them feedback on the designs or solutions right away has helped us do things quicker.

The software that their team produced is a vast improvement over the previous solution. RootQuotient promptly addressed all requests and maintained consistent communication, fleshing out all project details to ensure full transparency at each stage of development.

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 am a professor at a university in India. I am the head of procurement 
for the university facility that runs various kitchens to provide food 
for the student residents.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RootQuotient?

We had a manual system for our centralized procurement center where we provide food for students. It’s cumbersome work and a lot of mistakes had been made, so we needed software developed to fix this issue.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

RootQuotient developed our software, which helped us eliminate the mistakes that were being made. They built features to calculate how much was being consumed. This way whatever is spent is what will be delivered to all the students per month.

Overall, the project took five months to complete and RootQuotient used PHP and MySQL.

What is the team composition?

There were three developers and one project manager assigned to our project.

How did you come to work with RootQuotient?

Another vendor had developed the system for me, but we weren’t satisfied with their work. We wanted to hire a high-quality company. RootQuotient was referred to us from people in our network, so we looked at their work and found that they could deliver what we wanted.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent 70 lakh (approx. $97,877 US) on this project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in June until November 2018. We had a few bugs that they fixed in March 2019, which took them a couple of months to handle.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

RootQuotient produced great software which was much more useful than what we had before. I also got a good reputation within my organization thanks to the software they developed.

How did RootQuotient perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management was impressive. RootQuotient immediately did whatever we asked of them and kept us updated throughout the engagement. They had good teamwork and would detail all the functionalities they were working on during each phase of the development.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I was most impressed by their project manager, delivery of the project, and the time it took to complete everything. I really enjoyed working with them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They mostly work in the evenings, which isn’t comfortable for me. Otherwise, they’re good.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

RootQuotient is easily reachable for any clarification that’s needed. Clients that are clear with project requirements will get the best out of this team.

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 a co-founder of a product development company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RootQuotient?

We needed a partner to build a mobile application for our product, and later scale it to include a web version.

A major challenge we encountered was making our features as user-centric as possible around the privacy settings. It was especially hard for the market segment we tried to target, and RootQuotient handled our project brilliantly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

RootQuotient provided several services to facilitate the creation of our app. First, they helped brainstorm some of the features on how the UI/UX should work. They also helped with design, and handled the development portion entirely.

They used Elixir and Firebase on the backend, and Flutter for the iOS and Android development, which is one of the latest frameworks from the Google ecosystem. We used a Flutter cross-platform solution because we really wanted to capture the market on both the iOS and Android segment, and we wanted to do it quickly.

Some notable features they developed include a deleting and archiving chat function, within peer-to-peer and group conversations. They also included an auto-deletion segment, along with a message scheduling feature. They met all of our requirements, and we’re excited to have such a top-notch solution at our fingertips.

What is the team composition?

We had one project manager, who managed the project on RootQuotient’s side. We also worked with a business analyst, who was our connection to their developers. In total, the team size on their end was around five people.

How did you come to work with RootQuotient?

We were put in contact with several development teams at a Toronto networking event. We were really impressed with three of the vendors, but RootQuotient was suggested for our prototype—which we wanted to make quickly. We needed a strong technical partner and reached out to RootQuotient to meet those expectations.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested $60,000 so far with RootQuotient. We’re planning to add more features for the full launch and expect the full investment to reach $80,000–$85,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working on the prototype in February 2019, and our engagement is ongoing. The product is in beta release at the moment.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

RootQuotient went beyond our expectations, especially for an MVP. Specifically, we’ve received positive UX feedback from beta users we’ve interviewed recently.

We’ve also garnered positive reception on sharing different file formats and about privacy-first settings within the chats. We love that they continue to meet our customers’ expectations.

How did RootQuotient perform from a project management standpoint?

They did a really good job at project management.

First, we brainstormed the requirements along with their team, and they were able to suggest features related to the performance of the app. Next, for communication, they scheduled daily calls during the analysis phase, where we discussed the requirements.

Subsequently, they managed the product from the early prototype stages, and we drafted the requirements for the MVP. The design and development were really based on those requirements, and on an agile methodology. We used Azure DevOps as a project management tool, and we had four development sprints for the MVP.

Everything went according to plan, and they did a good job categorizing our user’s stories and features.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their turnaround time is truly phenomenal. I was really amazed at how quickly they could turn around with a solution, a backup solution, or an alternate solution. For example, they made two design iterations in order to ensure that development wouldn’t be lagging. Their design iterations and solution methodologies were pretty fast, and the quality was impeccable.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not really. We learned a lot of things from their team, and they were open to hearing our business strategy and our vision for future achievements. We consistently learn from each other, and RootQuotient did their job of providing a technical partnership.

I appreciate their insights into how the app should evolve and how we can set a roadmap for future success.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Clients should bring proper requirements to RootQuotient, so that they can deliver the right solution quickly. We didn’t have our requirements solidified in some cases, so our solutions would take more time to implement. It's important to come prepared so RootQuotient can provide the fast turnaround that clients value.

Feedback summary: 

Rootquotient delivered a satisfying website with features that exceeded expectations. Technically knowledgeable, they guided development to deliver an exemplary platform. The team adeptly directed the project to effectively manage multiple stakeholders, which ensured a successful collaboration.

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 a teaching assistant in the computer science department of a university in Canada.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Rootquotient?

Our department had to develop an independent eLearning platform to support our online students across the world. We started the project internally, but it wasn’t possible for us to complete it. We needed technical advice and expertise to deliver a platform that was strong enough to hold content and stream content across the world.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Rootquotient developed our eLearning platform from scratch, delivering the front- and backend of the website. Initially, the website was hosted in Google, but has since been shifted to AWS. The product allows students from around the world to register for, and stream free or paid classes.

We had to scrap everything so Rootquotient built our website without any structures in place. First, we discussed the technologies, timeframes, and documentation for the project. With a CMMI level four certification, their team managed the entire development process: certifications, analysis, change management, etc.

From there, their team developed the frontend. It took about a month for Rootquotient to draw the layout, plan, analyze and provide all the documentation. Once they structured the frontend, they began coding it properly. We shared the code that we’d developed, but it wasn’t clean; their team built the entire frontend using JavaScript, HTML, CSS and React.

Once the frontend was accepted, they developed the platform’s backend. Their team predominately used Node.js with a sorted Io technology. Their team implemented video conferencing and communication capabilities— a predominant part of the platform—using an open-source technology.

Although it wasn’t in their contract, Rootquotient has been providing six months of free support. There was one minor issue after three months of hosting, which they resolved without involving our team. Their team shared the document with us so we’re able to handle the challenge next time.

How did you come to work with Rootquotient?

We started by reaching out to multiple vendors in our network, eventually connecting with Rootquotient. A business development manager from their firm met with us to explain their budget, work, and expertise, which matched everything we were looking for.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $80,000 CAD (approximately $61,300 USD) with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in December 2018, and finished the platform in March but their team still provides support for the website.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Rootquotient was quick to adapt to new technologies. We were initially interested in basic backend development, but their team created a beautiful React platform. They implemented data visualization capacities to analyze the backend traffic, which is open-source. They have a great backend developer who can use various technologies from Node.js to Python. Rootquotient’s work was worth every penny we paid.  

How did Rootquotient perform from a project management standpoint?

We had easy communication. Their team sent business representatives to us and managed all stakeholders well including our college and technical team as well as their business representatives and technical team. They met with us every week—sometimes twice a week—to provide updates on the project, but we also held videoconferences. Their team involved us in every change management step. They managed the project in a professional manner, managing each and every minor detail to handle changes without any chaos. Rootquotient made sure everything was precise, perfect, and valuable; they have a great team.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their most impressive quality was their commitment to involving our team in every detail. Normally firms don’t share their knowledge, but Rootquotient involved our team in their huddles to keep us up-to-date. We were completely informed about the work they were doing.

Their team also had a good software development process. A business manager came to meet us on-site to provide project updates and show us the code with a great commenting structure to enable our team to better manage it later. Again, their way of helping our team whenever an issue has arisen even after we launched the platform has been amazing. The monetary aspect was excellent.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could improve their marketing skills. They’re an amazing team, and I only came to know them by using my personal network. Whenever I searched Google, I wasn’t made aware of their existence. Given their potential, they could definitely grow into one of the world’s major software firms.
