The Review
Feedback summary: 

SimbirSoft is a creative team that frequently pushes the boundaries of software development. Their team consists of innovative, highly-motivated people who think outside the box. Their enduring motivation generates exceptional results. They’re enthusiastic communicators and ahead of the schedule.

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 CTO of CV. We make physical products for the funeral industry and have recently ventured into the IT industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with SimbirSoft?

To evolve as a company, we created a product configurator app and website for our physical products. The software would enable customers to design the decoration used in their ceremony by using our products.

We soon realized that this tool would be much more versatile if we made it an open system. We allowed other vendors to present their products so that private customers and funeral directors alike could use the platform to configure funerals. Our internal IT team is small, so we needed an experienced development firm to help us build that platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

SimbirSoft developed custom software for our online platform. We built the iOS app and designed the frontend layout for the web app. They were responsible for implementing the web app's code. They also built out the platform’s entire backend infrastructure. That process included programming the necessary APIs and constructing a stable database. They’re currently working to refine the final version for a steady launch.

What is the team composition?

They’ve allocated a team of over a dozen people to work on the project full-time. The positions covered by them include QA resources, analysts, back- and frontend developers, and a project manager.

How did you come to work with SimbirSoft?

A collaborator of ours has been working closely with SimbirSoft for many years. They recommended them to us.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in early 2018, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re super happy with their work. The results we’ve experienced so far are impressive considering they’ve only been working with us for half a year. Thanks to their efforts, our platform consists of a complex backend with a database set up alongside the frontend.

It’s hard to find service-oriented companies where we’re located, so we’re glad to be working with SimbirSoft. They think outside the box, often plan ahead of schedule, and their team is efficiently structured. I’d recommend them to anyone starting a web development project.

How did SimbirSoft perform from a project management standpoint?

They work ahead of schedule to better accommodate us. For example, we attended a large conference two months after they joined the project to unveil portions of the platform for the first time publicly. SimbirSoft took it upon themselves to ensure a successful presentation by not augmenting the system’s code during the conference.

Instead of working until 5:00 PM and then going home, I appreciate that they remain available and supportive during all hours of the day. Their ability to help out with even small tasks to develop the iOS app sped up the process significantly. We primarily use Skype to communicate. Trello allows us to open tickets, isolate bugs, and request minor changes.

What did you find most impressive about them?

SimbirSoft consists of an innovative and highly motivated team. They want to create a viable product instead of only doing the minimum amount of work required. They identify with the project, and that motivates them to produce positive results.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The initial price estimate was much lower than what it cost in the end. This also happened because we requested a lot of features and made multiple changes. Nonetheless, their cost-value balance is justified.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Assigning some tasks to our internal team has made the project more manageable. Also, it’s more efficient to use Skype and screen sharing when pair-programming together than it is to work with Trello. The former better facilitates immediate communication.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CIO of RedKassa, a Russian online platform to buy and sell music, theatre, and entertainment tickets.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire SimbirSoft?

We needed to create a cloud ticketing platform for event organizers and agents to sell tickets. We wanted them to manage the entire process including research, development, quality assurance, and management.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to launch an MVP within the first five months. Through this process, we hope to receive feedback from our customers in the early stages. Additionally, we hope to replace our current software and improve the entire website experience for our customers.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We wanted a highly qualified frontend developer. Our in-house staff mainly specializes in C# backend development, so we wanted a developer to complement our staff. SimbirSoft specialists assisted us in the frontend architecture and UI development.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

We developed an initial ticketing platform that focused on the event planning aspect which includes, ticket distribution, seasonal event management, and ticket returns. SimbirSoft tracked analytics through an analyst who worked with us to develop a prototype for the user interface. Frontend and backend developers from both teams worked together during the automated and manual testing phases. A quality assurance specialist handled API testing and development operations engineer who prepared and implemented all products for our platform.

What was the team composition?

SimbirSoft provided us with an Analyst, C# and React developers, two quality assurance specialists, and development operations engineer. We provided a backend developer who served as the system expert for the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

We already implemented the platform for some large-scale events, but we are going to launch the first version within the coming days. We want to receive feedback and determine ways to develop a better product.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They are open to our ideas and ready to discuss them and compromise. They fulfill our development requirements and have specialists who understand our business and project goals. They offer useful ideas, including a design for an attractive and flexible user interface via the Ant Design Library. We also liked that their team referred our developers for system questions.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Ranked in the Top 40 of Russian banks, SKB Bank is one of largest regional banks providing services for federal individuals and entities, with locations in over 150 cities. SKB Lab is an IT subdivision of SKB Bank and develops various internet banking and mobile banking services. There are about 15-18 teams composed of 120 full-time employees and about 35 contracted employees, many of whom are from SimbirSoft. I am a project manager responsible for one of the teams that includes SimbirSoft personnel.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire SimbirSoft?

We needed additional development resources to help us finish a project on time and to our standards. We began the collaboration as a small project with a fixed timeline and budget, but after its successful completion, we decided to continue the partnership.  

What were your goals for this project?

The most recent significant project had two main goals. The first was to change not only the UI design but the entire functionality of the internet banking application. The second was to complete the project within a narrow timeline of two months.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

SimbirSoft not only met our needs, but mirrored our vision and is now a reliable partner, assisting with our online and mobile banking app development projects. They demonstrate a high level of technical competence and develop products with a customer service-oriented approach. 

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

SimbirSoft is a fully dedicated development partner that meets our business needs and provides end-to-end software product development, from preliminary research to implementation and support. We collaborate in the mobile, development, QA, and analytics spheres. We work on a time-and-materials basis and are billed monthly for hours worked. 

What was the team composition?

There are currently 26 specialists working on various projects: six mobile developers, nine frontend developers, three backend developers, seven QA specialists, and one analyst. It is worth noting their management’s quick response to necessary changes in the team’s structure: they scale up or down on demand and augment with unique specialists as needed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We were astounded by the depth and speed of SimbirSoft’s integration into our business and development process; in a matter of days, they became a part of our team. SKB Lab and the SimbirSoft team did an excellent job creating a new online banking platform for SKB Bank, SKB-Online. According to the 2017 Markswebb Rank & Report study, this project ranked 4th on the lists of Best Russian Internet Banking and Business Mobile Banking for Micro-Business.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Their project layout included very measurable timelines for execution; for every milestone, they reported completion, waited for approval, and then moved forward. The process remained consistent with each change, which was helpful, because we were developing our project day-to-day according to the client’s needs and ideas in real time. Communication is always good, and we rarely have misunderstandings; our best practice was daily call meetings, during which we discussed ideas, solutions, and problems. They respond to our requests and meet our demands regardless of the circumstances.

Micromanagement is outdated, and management now is about quality and delivery, so rather than monitor the development process in detail or request in-depth explanations of task completions, we motivate them. Because every specialist we worked with demonstrated a high level of expertise and responsibility, all we did was set tasks and check their progress; SimbirSoft did the rest. They are receptive to feedback, involved in all of our discussions, and understand what needs to be done.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I think the key to SimbirSoft's success is the people they employ. They approach projects from a business perspective, make time to figure out everything, and ensure they have a good grasp on project intent before actually executing. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality, service, and timeframe. We are glad to have found a partner who offers us full-spectrum, complex technical expertise. Unlike other companies, SimbirSoft is competent and adaptable to our business requirements, providing us with unique financial technology expertise and necessary resources. We have worked with other companies, but were completely disappointed in the quality and timeframes. SimbirSoft is the only partner we trust, and we consider them an extension of our staff. 

Are there any areas where they can improve?

We could meet more often if the team was closer to our office in Ekaterinburg.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a CPO at SmartPrice, a Russian startup. I’m responsible for our internal products (CRM) and our websites. Our main goal is to provide our users with an easy and flexible way to buy and sell pre-owned smartphones. We want to give electronics a second life and want to make people happy with high-end mobile devices for a better price.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire SimbirSoft?

SimbirSoft developed a CRM to manage all user requests. We also asked SimbirSoft to prepare various API tools for our commercial partners (smartphone stores).

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to automate our business processes to make them simpler. At the beginning of our work with SimbirSoft we had already implemented a CRM infrastructure, and we needed to develop different features for our business processes.

We also decided to develop a software for device diagnostics along with the CRM development. It helps us avoid the human factor and accelerate the diagnostic process. The software consists of Windows, iOS, and Android applications. SimbirSoft was responsible for the Windows development.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We looked on Facebook for a frontend team lead. A sales manager from SimbirSoft contacted me and we decided to engage them.

Describe the project in detail.

SimbirSoft's implemented our partner’s API from scratch, along with all related internal features. They set up autotests for the API methods' development CRM in order to implement a multiple users model. They also worked on IP telephony integration, push-notifications, and asynchronous requests to third-party APIs.

We implemented the windows application using C++. This was quite complicated and involved connecting with iOS/Android smartphones and installing the iOS/Android diagnostic application on the device. These and other features were completely built by SimbirSoft.

What was the team composition?

SimbirSoft provided us with two Python/Django specialists, one template designer, and two React developers. They also provided QA and DevOps specialists.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What outcomes or results can you share that demonstrate progress and/or success?

With our brand new CRM system, it has become much easier to handle our internal processes, which improved the overall organization of our company.

How effective was the project management?

Working with SimbirSoft has been effective and flexible. They organized the project management to fit our company needs. Since we are a startup, we change our processes regularly to see what works best, so our CRM system requirements change frequently. Because of this, I decided to manage the development process myself, so I could change and correct our processes on the fly and communicate those changes directly to the developers.

We've been working in one-week sprints. We discuss our plans and tasks in a daily meeting every morning. Our dedicated account manager from SimbirSoft helps me with monthly reports on timing and prices, so I’m able to control the projects' speed and budget.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their approach to the work, motivation, responsibility, and effectiveness are all quite impressive. SimbirSoft is ready and able to extend their services along with the growth of our business.

What tips or recommendations do you have?

From my point of view, there aren’t any critical areas they need to improve on.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Our company developed a portal that unites various services in one place. Our services include: house reparations, tutoring, design, stylists etc. Users can log-in as a customer or as a service provider and easily solve any problem.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire SimbirSoft?

Our portal is a complicated system based on microservices, which allows us to develop and add new functionalities easily while maintaining adequate levels of integrity and performance.

In order to achieve our ambitious goal, we were looking for a large team of C++ developers. The fact that all team members were under one roof in order to communicate properly was important for us when looking for a contractor.

On our platform, users can register as both a customer and services provider. Customers leave requests for the services they need and the cost they are willing to pay for them. Providers respond to requests and discuss details with customers via private chats. This also works in reverse; the providers leave information about their services and the clients respond if they are interested. The system is also able to find a service according to a certain description and provider’s experience. If both customer and provider come to an agreement, the provider starts performing the services. The services can be paid for before or after the work is completed.

What were your goals for this project?

Our most important goal was to develop a user-friendly web platform and mobile application in order to break into the American market, starting off in New York, and eventually covering other regions. The mobile application was to be built for both iOS and Android.

We wanted our applications to be modern, bright, and user-friendly. SimbirSoft has been alongside us since the very beginning of the development process. We started off with a C++ team, then we extended our cooperation to involve them in frontend development, QA, and mobile development.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

The most important criteria for us in the selection process was to choose specialists who had both the qualifications and experience for our project. We have had a number of interviews with SimbirSoft team members and realized they were exactly what we were looking for. We were looking for a large C++ team, had been very difficult to find.

Describe the project in detail.

The project work was done in 2 weeks sprints. There are more than 10 different services used, including: auth, chat, dictionary, event, geo, media, notify, offer, payments, recommend, a 3 node cluster on each server, continuous integration, Redis and Consul, Elastic search, XMPP-service, recommend service, geo-positioning and 2 dozens of technologies, including C++, Python, PostgreSQL, Docker, Nginx, Postman, Git (gitlab), JIRA, Ansible, Bamboo CI, Groovy, JUnit, Redis, Memcached, Consul, Vagrant, ZeroMQ, Google Testing, node.js, Elasticsearch, Dxmpp, Erlang.

What was the team composition?

We have an allocation team, which consists of over 20 people, and includes various branches, such as analytics, frontend, backend, quality assurance, elastic search and more. Each team branch has a team-lead, who is in charge of the work process.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What outcomes or results can you share that demonstrate progress and/or success?

We managed to deliver the general look and feel of the application that we set out to develop. More than that, SimbirSoft helped us develop a web portal that unites all the offered services in one place. When registering, the user fills out a survey, where they mention what it is that they need, to give us a better idea of how the platform is being used. 

SimbirSoft helped us develop the product's entire functionality. The portal was first released in January 2017. At this point (December 2017), we have more than 30,000 registered users on the portal, which is a great result for us. We've continued developing the portal in parallel with the mobile app, as we are certain that this will help to attract more users and make our product more popular.

How effective was the project management?

Initially, SimbirSoft provided a dedicated manager to solve any organizational issues. They also designated a team-lead to control and distribute tasks. As the project grew, our lead architect needed help collecting, analyzing, and processing large amounts of information, along with engineering requirements, forming descriptions for our documentation workflow, decomposing tasks, and coming up with sprints plans. SimbirSoft provided that help, making it easier to work on tasks and get faster feedback regarding those tasks. In addition, we received transparent reports on what has been accomplished, which was very important.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

SimbirSoft’s team worked extra hours when we had a tight deadline and a number of tasks to accomplish in order to achieve the necessary functionality for our first release. They worked even during the winter holiday season, which proves again how seriously they took our project. Whenever we needed to reinforce the team, our dedicated manager involved more qualified specialists, allowing us to keep the development process' pace and timeline.

What tips or recommendations do you have?

Looking back, SimbirSoft helped us achieve all the goals we had set. The company did excellent work overall.

Feedback summary: 

The client is extremely pleased with the work done by SimbirSoft, and a continuing relationship after six years is a testament to the strength of their partnership. The client is most appreciative of SimbirSoft's ability to adapt to changing needs, especially in a difficult space like software 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.

We are a custom software development company. We have 2 offices in the US and one in Russia, where we got started.

I am the CEO [Chief Executive Officer] of the company. I supervise all day-to-day operations and execute contracts.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with SimbirSoft?

It was challenging to find good quality resources in our hometown, and we had more work than we could handle ourselves. We were looking for additional development resources, which is where SimbirSoft came into the picture.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We started our collaboration with SimbirSoft doing C++ development for 2 additional modules that we had to create for a client product. SimbirSoft has also helped us develop other mainstream applications, web products, and so on. We've used many different resources from SimbirSoft, including their testing department.

We work on a time-and-materials basis and receive monthly bills for the number of hours spent. We do require some kind of estimations in advance, but many of our products function within a changing environment. If a product is developed over the course of a year, its requirements may change significantly, so we can't allow ourselves to be limited to an initial scope. If the change needs to be made, I have to make it immediately, not after 3 months of requirements reviews.

How did you come to work with SimbirSoft?

We reviewed 3-4 companies in Russia which would be able to provide us with the right resources. We interviewed SimbirSoft via Skype and also visited their head offices in Ulyanovsk Oblast. The interview process was very close to what we would have done for hiring a person. We asked SimbirSoft to put us in touch with an actual representative who would be working for us, and we talked to him as if he would be taken on as a part of our team and gave him the same tasks.

How much have you invested with SimbirSoft?

The total cost of SimbirSoft's development services exceeded $1,000,000 over the course of our relationship. The amount of work done by SimbirSoft has fluctuated over time, but we've averaged a $30,000 to $35,000 per month spend.

What is the status of this engagement?

We have been working with SimbirSoft since 2010 and have an ongoing relationship.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Over the course of 6 years, SimbirSoft has done a lot of work for us. The best testament to the quality of work that they're doing is that we're still working with them after all this time. There were some issues over the course of these 6 years, but we've continued to work with SimbirSoft because we could always call their CEO or any of the managers and tell them that there's something we'd like changed. Any issues we've had were always resolved.

How did SimbirSoft perform from a project management standpoint?

Initially, we were managing projects completely on our side, and SimbirSoft only handled development. They did have a representative in charge of communication, but he was more of a tech lead rather than a pure project manager. On some cases, this worked well for us, but when we came to bigger projects lasting for up to a year and a half, things started to become too complicated. On most projects, we will handle most of the development work and SimbirSoft will only assist us on a specific module, but in a particular instance, all the work was done on SimbirSoft's side. It was a bit challenging for us to manage it without having someone involved on our side. This convinced us to ask for a pure product manager on SimbirSoft's side, who would be responsible for doing what we needed within areas which had lesser-detailed requirements. The approached worked pretty well.

Some development methodologies require a rational unified process, with true requirements fully outlined. We employ more Agile and scrum methods, with SimbirSoft doing the development and getting immediate feedback and change requests from us.

What did you find most impressive about SimbirSoft?

For me, the best quality that a company can have is being ready to adapt to the needs of a particular customer, like ourselves. Our business is software development and we have very specific work procedures, unlike those of other developers. SimbirSoft had a different approach than ours, but they were able to accommodate the necessary changes in order to have a successful relationship.

Are there any areas SimbirSoft could improve?

We had a few issues when some employees from SimbirSoft left the company and there was a transfer period towards new management, but our company has had the same problem, and it can be a hard process for anyone to take care of. When a tech manager leaves a group, the new person will need time to adapt. For most customers, this won't be a significant issue. Most people order specific products and simply have them developed, instead of having a 5-6-year collaboration.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with SimbirSoft?

I would advise clients to be open and honest from the very beginning and not wait until it's too late to discuss issues, particular needs, or requirements. If the customer does this, they will have a good relationship with SimbirSoft.
