    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    Pak-Man is a family owned business, we distribute disposable products to local restaurants since 1993. In 2017 we started to print on disposable cups so now to also offer custom printed cups. We have 12 employees, 4 of which are family members. My father owns the company and I manage the IT, cup printing operation and business development.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Simtech Development?

    We hired Simtech to help us migrate from our old accounting software. We needed something more custom tailored to our needs and needed something affordable at the same time. Simtech solved both of those issues for us. More specifically we needed to be able to ship FedEx packages and print their labels directly from CS Cart. Also we wanted to use Quickbooks Online for accounting at the request of our accountant and Simtech helped us with the integration between both CS Cart and QBO. As well as secure Credit Card processing and more features that make our process more lean.

    What were your goals for this project?

    Quickbook Online and CS Cart integration Printing FedEx Lables from CS Cart Adding custom modules to manage our cup printing operation. Connecting to Freight View API for freight booking and BOL printing.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    We searched for CS-Cart Developers on Google, used Simtech for minor modifications before 2019 and they responsive, organized and upfront about pricing. I am happy with this mutual beneficial business relationship we have.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    Reports are generated much faster. Orders are charged faster.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    It seems like they have a backed system manager or and app like Outpost or Front App or their own ticket system that they follow.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Their reliability stands out; they keep up to date with the promised timeframe. It seems like they are honest as they quote based on task not time which makes like easier for the client.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    Well they tend to strictly stick to their ticket system, I guess that is good for traceability and accountability but it would be easier for me to communicate via Skype and Whatsapp because when I discuss with my other developers the free discussion gets solutions faster and is a good idea starter.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    We have developed an online platform for local opticians to sell their products, i.e. glasses and sunglasses

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Simtech Development?

    The CS Cart Multivendor platform needed to be adjusted to cater specific needs of this vertical/product. Furthermore, we were looking for a trusted partner to help us making the first steps in the e-commerce marketplace world and help us to work with CS Cart Multivendor.

    What were your goals for this project?

    Goal 1: get familiar with marketplace technology and CS Cart Multivendor platform in particular Goal 2: update functionalities to enable sales of glasses (show local opticians selling the frame selected and selection criiteria, add prescription functionality, add appointment functionality, integrate virtual try-on functionality)

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    Mainly based on platform selection. At that time, we did not realize so much how important the development and support component was.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    They installed the CS Cart Multivendor Platform. They added new functionalities: - enter prescription - book appointment with local optician - integration of virtual try-on - sellers of common product (overview and map) They made front-end changes, e.g., - email notifications - common product listing - product display - checkout

    What was the team composition?

    Project team consisted predominantly about: - 1 sales/business person understanding and discussing the business requirements and translating these into development specs and managing the project - 1 senior developer making the changes with his team

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    Due to the support of SimTech we have been able to build a full-fledged market place and made it up and running in less than 5 months,

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    Project Management was very good. We agreed on certain budget before and to focus on MVP, and expand from there. Each time I was bringing up a new feature, project manager was challenging me on the objective: creating an MVP. Although this was going against their own (short terms) business objectives. Meetings were very efficient, well summarized in clear overviews with clear guidelines on timing and budget. Each week, reports were sent with work done, and hours versus budget.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    The sales/project management is of the highest quality I have ever experienced in an IT project, and I have done many. Project manager treated project like it was her own business.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    Not that I can immediately think of. Maybe a small one: when the project manager was on holiday for 2 weeks, a stand in was replaced, but I felt the project was not really moving forward during that time.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    We are a technology consulting company specializing in development and data integration of Customer Relations Management, eCommerce platforms and custom development and consulting.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Simtech Development?

    We hired Simtech to develop a custom add-on for CS-CART to allow one of our multi-store storefronts to be able to secure selected categories or products with preexisting customer numbers with a larger project of helping implement Single Sign On (SSO) for selected Stores for our customer

    What were your goals for this project?

    The solution was required to work with independently on multiple stores, allow for admin configuration and data imports and be compatible with any 3rd party Add-Ons or customizations.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    We have been implementing and managing CS-CART for our customers for over 7 years and have had a great deal of in house customizations as well as 3rd party add-ons and development as well as being behind in version updates. We reached out to CS-CART after some support cases and were referred to Simtech for our more complex needs. The response was timely and extremely professional and organized.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    Simtech gave us custom quotes and very reasonable pricing and timelines for developing custom add-on(s) for CS-CART Mult-Store with approximately 15 storefronts that would be able to secure selected categories or products with preexisting customer numbers with a larger project of helping implement Single Sign On (SSO) for selected Stores for our customer. From the start their communication and project management, along with their core knowledge of CS-CART and reliable scheduling was exceptional. All expectations were set and agreed upon BEFORE work began and did allow for reasonable flexibility. The developed on time, on budget and were very understanding with our customer's scope changes throughout the process. The testing and implementation gave great confidence as well.

    What was the team composition?

    We had our internal project manager, our customer's subject matter experts, a Simtech Project Manager and dedicated Simtech developers for the projects.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    We have years of past development and 3rd party add-ons in our large CS-CART Multi-Store implementation and have experienced sometimes overwhelming needs to manage and customize in a way that allows for future proofing our implementation. We have also had internal developers come and go and needed organized reliable support, development and consulting to aid in continued e-commerce needs of our customers. Simtech has helped us greatly in being able to reliably clean up our implementation and cost effectively consolidate the customizations and add-on(s) we require.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    From the start of the first Request for Quote the communication and project management through the Simtech support portal was amazing. Being a technology consulting company ourselves we were very impressed by the level of communication either by email, ticket and even live Skype sessions with the actual team as well as the daily progress updates. Simtech also managed scope changes from our customers very well and communicated any issues or pricing changes BEFORE they became problems. It was, and is, a very pleasant and reliable experience

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Simtech has core knowledge of CS-CART and a close relationship with the CS-CART company. As a result, we have great confidence in their ability to deliver just about any reasonable customization or development we may require. This was only surpassed by their amazing project management and communication!

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    As with any international relationship the biggest challenge is sometimes relative to working hours and time zones. Simtech set scheduling and timing expectations and were very helpful in trying to schedule with in working hours of both our company and theirs. Sometimes, even though reasonable, the 8 to 12 hour differences can cause minor communication delays.

I investigated about them and they were very recommended by our e-commerce developer. The cost that they give me was in the average of our budget

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    They will develop a new add-on “Simtech Development: receive card payment gateway”, In the administration panel they configurated to add/update the new payment gateway by choosing it in the “Processor” field on the payment update page and configuring its API parameters (currency, secret key, etc.). This modifications give the opportunity to the customers to choose the new payment method at the standard. To control the new addon the Administrators will be able to choose the new payment method in the administration panel and process the order. They will not make the modification compatible with third-party add-ons purchased and installed on the store. If we purchased / installed a third-party modification while we were doing the payment gateway integration, the client must provide us with it for extra analysis and quote We test the new addon for 2 weeks checking all the details, We correct all the issues.

    What was the team composition?

    I was contacting with one project manager all the team, during the development time she take a vacation period, and she introduced me one new project manager with him I solve many issues with the same quality as before, she come back one week after, We finish the project on time and we start the tests

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    the results of the project were more impressive that we expected, We increase the 150% the credit card orders in the first month that we implement the new payment processor

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    The project was developed in the time that was planned, one of the features that was essential to reach the goals of this project was the very fast reply velocity of the simetch team

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Their knowledge about our e-commerce solution was very impressive

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    may be they can reduce their delivery times a little.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    My company owns United Florists, which owns Lily's Florist Australia & Lily's Florist USA. We're an online flower delivery marketing company that sends same day flowers to all of Australia & the USA, through a network of 1000's of partner florists. As a director I am responsible for the direction & technology of United Florists.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Simtech Development?

    We built our current platform on Laravel 3, and whilst incredibly innovative in 2013, a few years ago it became clear that we needed a major upgrade to bring our software in line with Ecommerce best practices and we didn't think that Laravel was right for us. After years of research we decided on CS Cart & chose Simtech as our developer as, whilst the 'out of the box' features of CS Cart are incredible, there are certain add ons that we need that are specific to our industry and felt that Simtech were perfect for the task. It's difficult to go into too much detail about our development needs due to IP but there have been lots of them up until now, and many more moving forward.

    What were your goals for this project?

    Loosely, some of our high-end goals were to connect CS Cart with our partner florists, increase our mobile search footprint, have better integration tools for Google Ads, and create a far simpler shopping experience for our customers.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    We did months of research before choosing Simtech as our developer, they also come highly recommended by CS Cart.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    Again, it's very difficult to go into too much detail due to IP issues. What I will say is that when I launch a new project with Simtech I spend a considerable amount of time compiling the specifications for the project. I then add video describing exactly what I need, I create the development ticket. It's responded to within 24hrs, then there may be a little on the clarity of what is needed, they normally get back to me within 72 hours with the quote details.

    What was the team composition?

    I usually am in contact with just one person. This person is extremely helpful and has a deep understanding of our needs and will do whatever it takes to ensure I am completely satisfied.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    As we're in a development phase it's not yet an exact science as to the impact of dealing with Simtech. But I know that the impact to our business will be positively amazing, for years to come, from technologically & financially.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    All projects so far have from start to finish have been a breeze, efficient, and cost-effective.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    I am impressed with the value for money, communication, ability to understand our needs, their professionalism, the efficiency of meeting goals and deadlines, and their honesty.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    IMO, there are no improvments necessary, Simtech has exceeded my expectations.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    Precious Plastic is a foundation based in the Netherlands that designs open source recycling machinery and products. We host an online marketplace, called the Precious Plastic Bazar, where independent sellers from around the world sell our machines and products. We take a 5% fee on each transaction. My position at Precious Plastic is to manage the Precious Plastic Bazar. This involves leading development, marketing, and operations of the platform

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Simtech Development?

    We hired Simtech to do a customization of Cs-Cart multivendor software. We were trying to address an opportunity to bring in more sales to our marketplace. Specifically we wanted to change the new product page and change how shipping works in the software. The problem was the software was quite complex, not user friendly, and not made specifically for our users. We also had a few other small changes they helped us with. The specific service we needed was the coding of the custom development. We did the UX/UI internally.

    What were your goals for this project?

    Our goals for the project were to simplify the new product page and make shipping options available by country. Basically it was to tailor the cs-cart multivendor out of the box software to our needs in a marketplace. The reason we were doing this is that we upgraded to cs-cart from a different software so that we could have more flexibility. This change was ultimately about increasing revenue for our organization to succeed.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    We looked at a variety of vendors who were able to work with cs-cart multivendor software. We considered about 3 different companies. The deciding factor was reviews and specialized experience working with cs-cart software. The deciding factor was that Simtech was previously part of the company that produces cscart, which i assume would give them some inside knowledge. The selection process was between me (marketplace manager) and our executive director.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    We first gave Simtech a list of desired changes with corresponding UI mockups. They then came back with a quite as well as step by step requirements for getting the job done. There was a little bit of talking back and forth about these step by step requires, as not everything was understood correctly right way.

    We also had to clarify with them which parts would look exactly like our UI mockups, and which parts would not. The two main features were: - One page for adding new product (previously a tab system) - enable the seller to add shipping options based on customer country location We also contracted with them 10 hours of consulting after the custom development to help us manage the transition to the new software.

    What was the team composition?

    The vendor included a project manager, who then worked with a technical team of about two people who did the actual coding. The size of the team was not overly clear to me, so I'm not sure if it changed over time.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    Our sellers satisfaction with our marketplace definitely increases as a result of the work Simtech did for us. There has been some bumps along the way, but that is as expected. I would say our revenue has not increased, but that is difficult to tell because of the impact from covid-19. The results of the engagement definitely met the initial goal expectations of the project. I was happy with the result.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    The project was managed by one project manager from Simtech. This person was VERY responsive, which I would say is my number one thing that I liked about working with them. We would always set reasonable deadlines and everything was clear for them. We communicated through their helpdesk, and did not use any other tools. A few times i believe that language barrier and time difference effected the output and efficiency of working together. But not much.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Their ability to respond quickly and to develop very specific requirements impressed us. They were very clear about what they would do, and what they would not do.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    Testing and anticipating problems. I felt like often the testing was up to me, and I would not be able to anticipate where there might be problems that would come up. I think from Simtech experience with the software, they would best know where are likely to be issues when you do a custom development change.

    This led to some problems after the custom development was finished - bugs or ux problems would become obvious not until weeks later. I think better testing would have solved some of these problems.

    Feedback summary: 

    The coding and project management provided by Simtech Development have exceeded all stakeholder expectations, helping them to adapt an out of the box product to completely fit their needs. Their team works hard to hit all deadlines and communicate openly about their progress.

    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 work for a new company based in Chile, and we are a specialized marketplace for heavy machinery and used equipment for trucks, construction, and mining.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Simtech Development?

    We have worked with their team to build the software platform that serves as the core of our business.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    The project was on a relatively tight budget, so we were looking for an out-of-the-box solution that we would be able to customize and build off of to use for our marketplace. We came across CS-Cart software and bought it through Simtech Development, who are authorized resellers of that product, as well as AWS services.

    From there, we worked with them to construct the entire platform, making various changes and customizations, adding plugins, and implementing our content into the product.

    What is the team composition?

    I have a main project manager and interact with a few other members of their team.

    How did you come to work with Simtech Development?

    After we initially bought the platform from them, we ran into a couple problems with add-ons from different developers causing issues with one another. They were able to fix those very quickly and cleanly, so we were immediately interested in keeping them on as our main development partner.

    How much have you invested with them?

    The total cost has been around $6,000 so far.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We started working on developments and customizations in March 2019 and are continuing to collaborate together.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    At this point, they have helped us with over 15 different development projects for customizations of the platform. Each of them has been delivered on time and in a very professional manner, satisfying all of the technical specifications that we have asked of them. I am completely satisfied with the quality of their work so far.

    How did Simtech Development perform from a project management standpoint?

    Katerina does a really great job of managing all of our work together. Their communication is very fluid, mainly by email since we are in such different time zones. We have 24 hour back and forth, and each email is always very full and complete so we always feel like we are on the same page as them.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    In my experience with outsourcing companies, Simtech is by far the most professional and structured. They always create the technical specifications of any tasks that they have and provide us with a list of everything they’re going to develop. The whole team is straightforward and honest, so we are never worried about whether or not something is going to be completed.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    I have to say that there is nothing in my mind that they could do better.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    Just make sure to explain what you want step by step and they will do exactly what you tell them.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Simtech Development?

    We had a Magento webshop on https://perfectnails.hu, but we were not satisfied with it. It was slow and was not user-friendly. There was no question that we will use Cs-Cart Ultimate which has the possibility to manage more storefronts in one administration panel as a next webshop solution.

    What were your goals for this project?

    The goal was to create a modern, user-friendly, SEO friendly and fast e-commerce platform that is better than our competitors' websites.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    We selected this vendor because the user comments and reviews were good.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    Simtech's job was to install Cs-Cart, create a good hosting environment and develop a lot of custom add-ons that are helping us to be more effective. Here are just a few of them: - data migration from the old Magento store - adaptation of third-party addons for multiple stores - different confirmation email templates for every store - reseller add-on - quick order add-on - full page cache by Varnish - a lot of design modifications etc. - also, we are using more than 10 ready to install add-ons from Simtech's marketplace

    What was the team composition?

    We had a project manager, anything else it was done by Simtech.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    If anybody has changed ever from a webshop to another webshop solution, knows that this is a very big and hard project. Anyway the solution was developed and launched early. Our customers are very satisfied with our new website that is superfast.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    Project management was very impressive, special thanks to Kate :) Their team regularly complied with deadlines and always communicated delays well ahead of time.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    The most impressive is that all the add-ons work correctly from the first time after development. The developments are fast!

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    There is very little they can improve, probably if they could work a little cheaper :)
