Purple / SAP - Energizing their sales presentations with immersive 360° video and a futuristic touch interface.

Purple created this revolutionary concept to help SAP energise their sales presentations with immersive 360° video and a futuristic touch interface.

Salsita took the initial prototype and turned it into a bullet-proof production system, helping to rearchitect the code base and improve usability.

"We design innovative digital experiences for some of the world’s best-known corporations, including household names

like Samsung, Shell and SAP. To meet their demanding standards, we need implementation partners who can quickly master complex business requirements while producing slick, compelling user interfaces and professional, maintainable code. Salsita excelled in all these areas and has become the go-to software development agency for our most challenging projects." Emile van den Ende - Technical Director, Purple

Colijn - 3D web based room planner for designing, configuring and decorating rooms

After a successful proof-of-concept, we implemented a complete room planner that lets you design strikingly realistic interiors, then view, pan and rotate them in 3D. Thanks to integration with the iONE product configurator, you can drop in detailed 3D furniture models and customize them in place.

"When we kicked off development of an innovative 3D web application a couple of years ago, most of the agencies we contacted

didn’t want to touch the project, which is very different and far more challenging than your average web app. Unlike the others, Salsita embraced the challenge and has proven capable of creating a slick and sophisticated 3D web front-end. Since the success of the first project, we have expanded the scope of the cooperation, and they are helping us to roll out an entirely new product line with potentially major impact on our business." - David Colijn - Product Manager, Colijn IT B.V.

Salsita produced iOS and Android versions of the app using React Native. The use of a cross-platform framework greatly accelerated development, allowing Namaste to hit a critical launch deadline. With a successful mobile implementation under their belt, Salsita’s engineers then created a web app for desktop use and rewrote the video server to improve code quality, performance and reliability.

"We originally contacted

Salsita to help fix some urgent production issues in the previous version of NamasteMD. We were so impressed by how quickly their engineers resolved the problems, we decided to ask them to implement the next version. They have continually exceeded expectations, helping not just with the mobile app but with continuous integration, UX, automated testing and backend improvements." - Chad Agate -  CTO, Namaste

Salsita's UX and front-end specialists architected the configurator for high performance and ease-of-use. It scales up from smartphones and tablets to desktop computers. Throughout the project, Salsita's engineers provided strategic advice on tricky UX decisions and architectural best practices.

"Our Salsita engineers helped to design great UX while implementing slick visual effects and solid software architecture. Every

member of the team has been fun to work with and great at their job. I particularly appreciate how proactive the team has been. They are really keen to give advice and guidance whenever they see room for improvement." - David Guerra - IT Director, Scuf Gaming

Ordamo - Tablet-based menus for restaurants

Tablet-based menus for restaurants... simple, right? Not when the ingredients include 8 distinct web and mobile apps tailored to the needs of diners, waiters, restaurant managers and others.

Salsita has been charged since the project's inception with implementing and managing the entire production system, helping to craft the user experience and overcoming the technical challenges of integrating with a dozen proprietary

point-of-sale (POS) systems.

"I greatly appreciate that rather than passively waiting for instructions, they are constantly on the lookout for potential issues as well as intelligent proposals on how to address them. They are speedy and efficient, agile and responsive delivering a high quality output." - Daniel Potter - CEO at Potter Ventures Limited

Blue Tree Systems - Business telematics solution for large and mid-sized truck fleets

Successful telematic solution that allows logistics companies to monitor their trucks in real time. It gives dispatchers and drivers all the necessary information to keep fuel costs low and cargo trucks safe.

'Our experienced in-house engineering team was originally hesitant to work with an outside vendor. Today we are confidently working with Salsita to deliver mission-critical product releases. Their team quickly

understood our business needs, and immediately contributed to accelerate our product roadmap. They have proven themselves to be professional, experienced JavaScript developers and I would happily recommend them to anyone searching for skilled JavaScript engineers." - Liam Lynch - Software Development Manager, Blue Tree Systems

Balfour - Yearbooks and educational resources

Our job was to replace a legacy desktop application with a modern web-based solution. The result is a state-of-the-art web app that lets high schools and universities design pixel-perfect yearbooks with the capabilities of popular desktop publishing applications like Adobe InDesign and QuarkXpress.

"Our projects are large, bleeding-edge applications to which the Salsita team has never failed to deliver and impress, both

with their technical acumen, but also professionalism and willingness to see the project through to deployment." - Ryan Meinzer - Director of Engineering, Balfour

Ecourt - Bringing paperless litigations to the UK

We built this project from the ground up starting with market research and investigation on just how to seamlessly replace the weighty paperwork of the litigation process. After failing to find react modules that allow for advanced PDF editing, we ended up using PDFTron (C++ package) and wrote our on bridging modules for both Kotlin and ObjC.

Feedback summary: 

Salsita Software managed the project well and simplified the development process. They were available to work on the project very quickly and communicated via email. Despite some minor issues at the start, they were able to create a high-quality product that was well-received by stakeholders 

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 global digital marketing at a renewable energy company. We're a leading global renewable energy developer, service supplier, wholesaler and energy solutions provider.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Salsita Software?

As a global firm, we wanted to grow closer as a business. We tried to bring together our international locations during our 10th-anniversary celebrations by creating a photo app that is compelling and state-of-the-art.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They created a photo application that allowed people to take photos during our 10th-anniversary celebrations. The app allowed users to take a photo, attach an exposure effect, and post it to a gallery. Every colleague was also compelled to write a sentence about where we will be in ten years. That content went directly into a gallery so that all colleagues around the world could see it whilst celebrating. The app was integrated with our intranet.  

What is the team composition?

We had frontend and backend developers. There was a project manager and a UX expert working with us.

How did you come to work with Salsita Software?

We were recommended to them from our intranet provider and from another agency who supported the project management of the 10 years event.

How much have you invested with them?

The app cost 45,000 euros ($49,959 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

It began around August 2019 and completed in December 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They did a great job of reducing the complexity of the project. The app was well-received across the globe. Our managing directors offered a lot of positive feedback. Their efforts succeeded in bringing the company closer together. Every location would post photos as the day would go along, which gave us the feeling of being one company.

How did Salsita Software perform from a project management standpoint?

We mostly used email and calls to communicate. They offered to use Slack, but it was easier to communicate over email given the variety of tools being used by our different providers. We mainly communicated through ongoing reviews. They only involved me when necessary.

They were available fairly quickly, which was great given the tight deadlines. They were ready right off the bat and we had the kick-off workshop right away. They did many things behind the scenes, working to build the app. At first, it wasn’t clear where they were at in the process, but they proved they were professionals and did a great job without involving me.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their ability to reduce the level of complexity while also keeping a focused communication structure was impressive.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We had a project manager change at the beginning of the project which was awkward. There was also a misunderstanding with the production environment, but we worked that out in the end.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Plan to spend more time with your project if possible. Every day you spend with Salsita Software, you’re able to get higher quality out of the engagement. If you grant them more time, it’ll make the results even better. 1-2 more weeks for us would have made our app even better. We were still pretty happy though.

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 director of technology for Purple, a creative innovation agency. We’re a creative agency with a focus on technology that has design, development, and management capabilities.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Salsita Software?

They’re helping us create creative, complex web applications. We needed additional expertise and manpower in creating advanced web technologies.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Currently, they serve as system administrators for the many services they’ve built out for us.

In one project, they delivered a web application that supports the sales of Samsung’s new flagship phones. It’s an interactive web-based game that was utilized in Samsung’s event set-ups. For that app, they used JavaScript, Node.js, and Unity 3D.

In the biggest project they’ve done for us, they developed a presentation platform that we’ve sold to several major clients.

What is the team composition?

They have four full-time employees assigned to our account. They’re providing us with a couple of full-stack development engineers, a frontend developer, and a DevOps team. We also have a dedicated project manager.

How did you come to work with Salsita Software?

I’d googled “React and Node.js Developers,” and they were one of the first few results to pop up. I sent them an email and got a phone call from their CEO within two hours.

We sent them a challenge assessment, and they surprised me by coming back with a full current state assessment of our project. From that point, I felt confident to work with them.

I was also at ease with the size of their company—with a 60-person team, they’re not too big, but they’re definitely not small and fragile, either.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in 2017, so it’s been a full two years. We’re still working with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’ve proven themselves to be a high-end software development company, with their products performing exceptionally well. The presentation platform they created continues to be intensively used by a major company, in all of its global offices.

They’re dedicated to their job and are clearly versed in their art. Being knowledgeable software architects, they make the right decisions in terms of scalability and quality. Naturally, their quality assurance team is top-notch.

How did Salsita Software perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re always available and are ready to work late hours or weekends to fix critical issues. They take any road bumps extremely seriously and are diligent in quickly resolving them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their level of dedication to our company and our values isn’t easy to find. It’s evident that they’re endeavoring to do what’s really best for us. They take challenges head-on to find the best solution.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, nothing comes to mind.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Don’t let go of them—keep them as your software provider!

Feedback summary: 

Salsita Software's efforts have received positive feedback and endorsements. Their team has developed a functional and useful software that will launch in 2020. Their communication was good—a weekly meeting helped structure the project. They were very trustworthy throughout.

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 CEO of eCourt. We’ve developed a trial presentation software for courts. We believe it’s a more efficient and user-friendly solution than what’s available on the market. There are companies that provide cloud-based document-sharing facilities in court, but our system loads files onto separate users’ devices.

The pages on opened documents are automatically mirrored across devices. Everyone using our eCourt app can collaborate and mirror within a courtroom situation, anywhere in the world. It works faster and more efficiently than cloud sharing since files are actually on the devices. These documents can also be annotated.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Salsita Software?

We’d developed an Android app version before I came to Salsita Software, but it wasn’t really what we needed. We wanted the solution developed with React so it could be deployed into iOS, Android, and Microsoft.

I contacted Matthew (Co-Founder and CEO, Salsita Software), and it developed from there. Salsita Software did a scope on what was going to be required, and we entered into a contract.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Salsita Software designed and developed our app. There’ve been a lot of changes involved, and it’s quite complicated. We had to incorporate a PDF reader and an easy-to-use, user-friendly interface. Salsita developed the whole server script. This had to be integrated with our databases.

Users can use cloud sharing to distribute the files through AWS, OneDrive, or whatever people think is the most secure. Files can also be distributed on USB sticks or SD cards. The system could be cloud-free for those who really want a high level of security. Mirroring files is instantaneous.

In the meantime, we’re testing it with users in Dublin courts. It has been used several times in various cases, and we’ve made a number of changes. Some people asked for the capacity to split the screen when looking at documents. We have a present, receive, and view mode. If a user is in receive mode, they can break off into view mode and look at any files they want. They can annotate and access the rest of the features while also looking at whatever documents the presenter has open.

What is the team composition?

We usually had meetings with the person managing the project and two developers. There’d obviously also be people working on testing, design, and other tasks. I’m not aware of how many people were on the design teams.

How did you come to work with Salsita Software?

I did some research into finding a good React software development company and came across Salsita Software. They’d done some work for another company in Ireland. I contacted them and they were very pleased with the services provided.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around €130,000 ($144,981 USD) on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

We made the initial contact in 2017. It’s gone on for two years now.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve had positive feedback and endorsements. Like any software, it can’t be all things to all people, but we feel we’ve struck a good balance. People ask about live notes, sending files in real-time between tablet devices, and so on, but our system isn’t designed for that.

Everything was done the way we wanted, and we have a fine app to release in 2020. It’s applicable in any court, anywhere in the world. At the moment, we’re raising funding to take it to the next level. We hope to expand to markets in Ireland and the United Kingdom. I think we have as much as possible covered at this stage. The project can never be complete, but I’m very happy with it.

It took us two years to develop it, and we’re now just launching the Android version of the app on the Google Play Store. It’ll be another month or so before we have the iOS and Microsoft versions out.

How did Salsita Software perform from a project management standpoint?

We had meetings on Google Hangouts every Monday between the team here and the one at Salsita Software to discuss the work done in the previous week. We also communicated on Slack on an ongoing basis. I found the communication very good. They’re always accessible. If I sent a Slack message today, I’d have a response by the end of the day. We’ve developed a good relationship over the two years, and I’m very happy with the work. We have weekly meetings, and they paid attention to what we wanted.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I always felt Salsita Software was more dependable than other developers. I’ve had developers prior to this engagement, and it can be like shoving money into a black hole. Salsita Software was trustworthy, and that we were getting a fair deal. They’re honorable and the communication has always been very good. I’m very happy with them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t have any criticisms for Salsita that particularly jump out at me. There were times when I felt they could’ve done things quicker, but anyone can say that about anything. I might want something done in a hurry, but they have their developers assigned to various projects and can’t just drop something and go to something else. I wouldn’t even say that this is a criticism.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

I referred people to them a few months back. It’s important to have a good system of communication. We have that weekly meeting, so we’re kept up to date all the time. It’s easy to manage the thing because of the communication channels. Between videoconferences and Slack, we can manage the project tightly, and they’re open to that.

Though only recently wrapped up, the app performed well in rounds of beta testing. It’s proven to be more functional and easy to use than others in the industry, achieving the client’s overall goal. As a partner, Salsita Software was agile and collaborative, making for a mostly smooth engagement. 

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 vice president of information technology for a mortgage solutions company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Salsita Software?

We hired Salsita Software to develop a mobile application.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Salsita Software helped us develop a mobile app for Android and iOS, built using React Native. The purpose of the app is to enable customers to appraise and evaluate real estate. 

Some of the key functionalities allow users to do automatic calculations on sizing, areas, grids, curves, and anything else they’d need to draw a footprint of a piece of real estate. It handles and organizes pictures, captions, and other key features to appraise real estate. 

What is the team composition?

They assigned a dedicated project manager to us for different stages of the project. 

How did you come to work with Salsita Software?

I’d used Salsita Software in the past at various companies, so it made sense to use them for this project. 

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around $750,000 on the project. 

What is the status of this engagement?

This project ran from June–November 2019. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

From the multiple rounds of both open and closed beta testing that we did, we’ve heard great feedback that it’s much easier to use than others in the market and is more approachable. These are two significant factors in our industry right now. 

Through the multiple rounds of feedback and testing, our internal team has gained a lot of confidence in the work. The functionality of the app is better than anything similar to it. They've also done a great job capturing user feedback and incorporating it into updated versions of the app.

How did Salsita Software perform from a project management standpoint?

They remained on schedule and within our budget throughout the project. All of the management was done very fluidly, using Jira, Confluence, and Slack. We ended up switching project managers halfway through as we moved into the development phase, but it went smoothly and it was a fluid approach. Our communication went well since the only barrier was the time difference. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were really great at UX/UI at every stage of the project, which a lot of companies can’t say. Not every company is as good at handling that. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

More upfront collaboration on a few of the technology decisions would be helpful. There were a few instances at the start where some of their decisions didn’t play well with my internal team's ideas, so it’d be beneficial if they had gotten our insight. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be an agile shop. They’re great at working iteratively, so use them in that way.

Feedback summary: 

As a result of the development work provided by Salsita Software, the client was able to relaunch their fully functional SaaS software on an aggressive deadline. Their team was highly organized and professional, making the process smooth and paving the way for future success.

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 CEO and co-founder of Techloop.io, a hiring marketplace for IT specialists focused primarily in central Europe.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Salsita Software?

We had a junior internal IT development team that was tasked with delivering parts of the project that were very crucial to us. Unfortunately, after several attempts, we realized they didn’t have the ability or the experience.

As a startup, we were in a tight situation to make a decision on whether to rebuild an internal team or go for the expertise of a team that had specific experience with JavaScript and React.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our goal was to rewrite a core company application. The final product had to support a fully enabled SaaS product platform. We needed to have the ability for a full search of the candidates, to have billing integrated, and to have social logins added into it.

It was done on a very tight deadline, but the end result was a fully capable SaaS product with integrated billing, exactly as we had requested. They continue to make themselves available on-call for any questions or requests that we have.

What is the team composition?

There were roughly four people. At least three people were on a full-time basis and one person worked on UX design as needed. We had two full-stack developers working with us for front- and backend needs, one project/product manager assisting in the communications and setting up sprints for our internal team and their team as well.

How did you come to work with Salsita Software?

They came to us through a personal recommendation. We decided to go with them due to the speed and expertise they were able to provide.

How much have you invested with them?

In the end, we spent €120,000 (approximately $132,900).

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from December 2018–June 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We were able to launch a completely new SaaS platform. The deadline was for April and they built the whole functional platform with the billing on time. Since then, we’ve been running on their technology stack, and we’re continually tweaking that internally.

How did Salsita Software perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management was very good. They had a difficult situation to balance, between applying their expertise to our development needs and helping to manage and train our junior team.

They didn’t do it on a standard basis but they were willing to take over the ownership and manage our team for six months to get them up to speed. They worked in weekly sprints. We had in-person meetings once a week to catch up on the results.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are professional in how they deal with the customer. The number one priority we had from the very beginning was a specific deadline that we needed to achieve to launch the new product.

Because of that, they were always planning out the scenarios that we had in front of us. If they had the ability to do something quicker, we were given upfront what the risks were that we’d be facing or that could cause potential future risks.

The communication was very good from their side. The platform is stable, and the process behind it and the deployment they set up was solid. Not only that, but they were able to implement it without any downtime or issues.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s nothing that comes to my mind.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Understand your budget and the results that you will get from working with them. They may be a little bit higher priced than their competition, but that is reflected in the delivery of the services that they provide. The premium price for the current market is easily justified by the professional services that they provide.

Feedback summary: 

Salsita Software’s efforts were met with positive reception and the platform was completed to their client’s specifications. Customers can expect a communicative team that always meets deadlines.

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 CEO and founder of Petshare, a web application for free pet caring solutions for pet lovers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Salsita Software?

We needed to finally create our application after a year of failed development with a separate company. They made a mess of our software so we wanted to start fresh with Salsita Software.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Salsita Software built out the MVP for our progressive web application from the ground up. We already had a designer who had done the design portion, so they were responsible purely for the product development, which they completed in Node.js React. Currently, it's mobile responsive, but we're looking to get a full desktop version completed soon.

What is the team composition?

We had two full-stack developers, a project manager, two UX and frontend developers, 1–2 DevOps specialists, and two QA testers.

How did you come to work with Salsita Software?

We looked at various companies that we found on Google and whittled our pool down to a proper list of three contenders. We chose them because we found them to be experienced developers and the CEO was very hands-on. It felt right for us to work with a company that was hands-on and that values their customers from top to bottom.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in February 2019 and wrapped up that August.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They went above and beyond of what we expected of them. Even though we did have to make a few changes here and there, our technical staff was very skilled. We felt very fortunate to have them on board.

How did Salsita Software perform from a project management standpoint?

They were always very quick with replying. Our tech lead, specifically, was very quick at responding to us and completing any changes that needed to be done. The team as a whole met all of our deadlines. We had weekly meetings to start off with and shifted to a bi-weekly model after realizing we were spending too much money on the meetings and not enough time on the actual work. We definitely made sure we had them on the right track in the beginning. We used Slack mainly for communication.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their skillset and communication were very good. Nothing ever got lost in translation, which gave us a sense of comfort.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The UX and UI for us were a bit challenging because there was a bit of a communication problem between us and a developer that was new to their company. If we had to do it all over again, we probably would've asked for a different UX developer that could communicate at the same level as the others. Despite that, we were very happy with what they accomplished.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

My advice is to be open and transparent with what you want so that both sides will know what the expectations are.
