Main features:

  • This app is meant to 'curate' the content for the users throughout their journey. This was done by implementing Machine Learning algorithms.
  • The application had to nudge the user to digest the articles only when they have free time amidst their daily plans & schedules. For prompting the user at the right time with the right articles, integrations with the user's calendar on Google seemed to be the right start.
  • For spotting and demoting the fake news among thousands of articles available online, extensive datasets and training models had to be in place.

Feedback summary: 

RootQuotient's work received positive feedback, especially surrounding the platform's UX. The team was excellent in terms of development speed, and always provided several alternate options. Customers can expect succinct technical expertise from seasoned professionals. 

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’re a product company trying to get a privacy-first chat application built. We’re trying to reach multiple market segments, from consumers to different companies. I’m a co-founder of the company, along with two of my colleagues.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with RootQuotient?

We were trying to first build the mobile application, and later scale it to include a web version. We needed to make our features as user-centric as possible around the privacy settings. This was not from user to user, but within the chat, so based upon individual messages. That was the major challenge we tried to work on for the market segment we tried to target, and they handled it brilliantly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

RootQuotient helped brainstorm some of the features on how the UI/UX should work. Along with business analysis, they helped design the mobile application, and handled the development portion.

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 opted to go with RootQuotient’s suggestion of using the 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 fast. We did some research, and found Flutter to be pretty impressive.

RootQuotient has developed all the features of our platform, including deleting or archiving particular chats within a peer-to-peer or group conversation. That is made simple through the UX, with either a right or left swipe. It’s a noteworthy feature. Others include auto deletion and message scheduling.

What is the team composition?

The contact was handled by one project manager, who managed the project on RootQuotient’s side. I and my colleagues were in constant touch with him and the business analyst. We weren’t in direct contact with the developers, although they were part of the daily calls. The team size on their end was around five people, including the project manager and business analyst.

How did you come to work with RootQuotient?

We got in contact with multiple service providers through a networking event in Toronto. We were really impressed with three of them, but the solution suggested RootQuotient for our prototype—which we wanted to make quickly—was something we were really interested in. Firebase was scalable, and it was what we needed at that moment. We really wanted a strong tech partner, and that’s where RootQuotient came into play.

How much have you invested with them?

The full project might require $80,000–$85,000, but we’ve only spent $60,000 so far with RootQuotient. We’re planning to add a few more features for the full launch.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working on the prototype in February 2019. The product is in beta release at the moment.

 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve received a lot of positive feedback from beta users we’ve interviewed recently, and their main appreciation was around the UX of the app. The performance was beyond our expectations for an MVP. To be specific, we’ve heard a lot of positive feedback on sharing different file formats (which was made pretty easy by the UX of the app) and about the privacy-first settings within the chat. Those have been pretty good, from the experience of the end users.

How did RootQuotient perform from a project management standpoint?

They scheduled daily calls during the analysis phase, where we discussed the requirements. We brainstormed the requirements along with their team, and they were able to suggest features related to the performance of the app. We really ideated the product from the prototype stages, and we drafted the requirements for the MVP. We used Azure DevOps as a project management tool, and we had four development sprints for the MVP. It went according to plan, and they did a good job categorizing the user stories, epics, and features. That was all ideated from the initial analysis phase. The design and development were really based on those requirements, and on an agile methodology. They did a really good job at project management.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It was their quick turnaround time. 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 turnaround time was really impressive.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not really. We learned a lot of things from their team, and they were really open to hear our business strategy, and what we really wanted to achieve in the future. We really learned from each other, and RootQuotient did their job of providing a technical partnership.

We’ve discussed the high-level business strategies of our product with RootQuotient, and I appreciated their insights into how the app should evolve and how we could set a roadmap for the future.

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. Whenever we weren’t able to do this, they would have to ideate more, we’d have to have more discussions, and the solution would take more time to implement. They’re great in terms of technological expertise, so they can provide solutions fast, and fast turnaround times are what clients are expecting.

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.
