The web app can be used for reporting as well as data analytics.

Skyrise.tech solved all the issues, and we are completely satisfied with the product. 

What is the team composition?

We worked with up to 10 people over the years. We have had three team leaders, UI and UX team members, and 5–6 developers. Some were backend developers, and some were mobile developers.

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 a venture capital firm called Black Pearls VC. We invest money in promising companies such as technological startups, young organizations, and other businesses.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Skyrise?

We wanted to create a software solution that would support startups through the business development process. The tool would also allow startups to easily submit their ideas to us for review. Since we’re not a technical group, we relied on Skyrise to build the platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

Skyrise developed a .NET-based online tool that would help tech startups develop their businesses. During the planning phase, they advised us on how to organize our software structure. The team then designed a mobile responsive UX/UI before building out a prototype and delivering the final version.

The tool itself was responsible for giving tech startups tips on following a lean business model. It would advise them on financial decisions, help them stick to a schedule, and give them an overall understanding of where they were in the project development process. At each stage, users could see what their next steps should be.

Another core function was the ability to submit projects directly to us to go through our investment process. We would assess each startup’s solutions and provide feedback. 

What is the team composition? 

Skyrise supplied a business analyst, a project manager, two UX designers, and between 2–3 programmers.

How did you come to work with Skyrise?

We researched the market for potential development firms and received a couple of offers. Out of all of the companies that responded, Skyrise was the most promising. 

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about €125,000 (approximately $142,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from August 2014–May 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The project was quite effective. In a short amount of time, several users have created over 1,000 projects in the tool. We’ve even invested in three of them.

How did Skyrise perform from a project management standpoint?

It was an effective collaboration because they were so agile. We had sprint meetings and used an online communication tool as well as a project management system to track deliveries.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Compared to other IT development companies I’ve worked with, Skyrise had a really professional team. They provided a full scope of services and understood how to lead an effective project.

Their experience was particularly useful during the planning phase because they were able to advise us on ways to test our idea before committing to development. They would check user requirements, test ideas with potential users when building the prototype, and work from there. That level of testing and support was good.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They’re not the least expensive service provider. But considering their whole performance, the price is great.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am a product owner at ABAX. We operate a fleet management system for the construction sector, which, for our purposes, includes electricians, plumbers, and the like.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Skyrise?

Our initial system wasn't truly scalable, so we contracted with Skyrise to rebuild it on a new platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We rely on Skyrise to provide extensive development services for our web portal along with Android and iOS applications. The platform allows project managers to keep track of construction and renovation projects to effectively manage employees and physical resources. The mobile app for workers makes it easier to receive and report information related to their particular jobs.

What is the team composition?

We work with a full team of about 18 people. That figure includes smaller groups that work with the separate Android, iOS, and web platforms. Additionally, we have a design team, a UX technician, a business analyst, and a project manager.

How did you come to work with Skyrise?

My predecessor chose Skyrise, so I am unsure of the exact decision process.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began in January 2015 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

With their support, we went from a non-scalable product to a fully scalable one. We are now able to serve a larger customer base than before. Their insight helps us create specific features that better suit our customers.

How did Skyrise perform from a project management standpoint?

They are very professional. I speak with the business analyst every day, and we have weekly meetings with each of the team leaders. We also visit them every other month. Our remote communication operates through phone calls, emails, Skype, and Slack. They follow up appropriately to each meeting. They also document their progress and invoices well.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We never have to worry about their dedication. They always deliver.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There have been times when adding more people to certain teams to speed up development would've been advantageous, but it's not always an option with Skyrise. We’ve had to halt operations for Android and iOS at times so that the other team could catch up.

Any advice for potential customers?

My only advice is to be open to trusting them. They get the job done, but trust plays a large role in their success.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the CEO and founder of You ROK Corp, an emotional resiliency app for adolescents used to help develop self-care skills.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Skyrise?

We needed help fixing code for a new service provided by another vendor.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Skyrise fixed and reworked the code for a new web-based service that was tightly intertwined with our mobile app, resolving a number of issues and bugs. They essentially provided QA and fixed code with minimal documentation, helping with the overall design as well.

What is the team composition?

We mostly worked directly with Tomasz (Technical Project Manager, Skyrise).

How did you come to work with Skyrise?

They happened to be in the US and were able to meet with us in-person after someone introduced me to their company. We evaluated several other firms and felt that Skyrise ultimately had the best team and options for us. They were flexible in their terms and offered competitive rates as well. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from around September 2017 through January 2018, but they've continued to provide assistance as needed to work out any bugs as they come up. We plan on working with them again towards the end of summer to add functionality to the app.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Skyrise successfully corrected the code we originally provided them, solving difficult problems without the support of formal documentation. They also provided invaluable recommendations, including ways to integrate cost-effective third-party services. We got an incredible value for our investment.

How did Skyrise perform from a project management standpoint?

They worked very well around our infrastructure, which lacks adequate support for more modern development cycles. Despite the time zone difference, they did a decent job of being responsive through email and Skype. They were able to speed up their processes a bit to adhere closer to the pace we're used to in Silicon Valley.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Skyrise's team is highly competent in providing IT infrastructure. Their team is also very understanding, doesn't have an ego, and is prepared to listen to the client in order to provide exactly what's needed. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

Due to the differences in contracts and certain laws from country to country, signing the contract took us a little longer to navigate than I would've preferred. They may be able to look into ways to speed up that process as they work with more clients in the US in the future.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Start with their team from an earlier phase of design and development than we did and don't look anywhere else.

Feedback summary: 

Skyrise’s software has received numerous accolades for its convenience and end-user experience. Despite the team’s compact size, their initial success secured their position as key partners. They communicated clearly, met deadlines, and produced strong deliverables throughout the project.

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 product manager at a car park technology company in Norway. We’re working to streamline paid parking with automation technology.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Skyrise?

We’ve been working on a new parking solution based on automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) that allows drivers to register their car and pay electronically at parking lots. As a result, we needed resources to develop a custom software that could read license plates and allow for automatic electronic payments.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We initially only brought Skyrise on to help us with the implementation phase once we came up with the basic concept. However, we ended up collaborating throughout the entire project from start to finish, which involved UX design, implementation, testing, and maintenance.

With the software, drivers can register their license plate and credit card numbers through various apps. Afterward, they can drive in and out of parking facilities freely. Once the system reads a registered license plate, the parking barrier opens automatically, and we charge the driver’s card. The Skyrise team is currently continuing to perform maintenance to ensure the software works and are working on evolving the core concept to include other payment options.

What is the team composition?

We have one person dedicated to UX development, one for design, one for implementation, and one for testing. Additionally, they’ve assigned a team to carry out our maintenance routine. I also work with their team lead who keeps track of our account.

How did you come to work with Skyrise?

In the beginning, we were part of the same company before splitting into two separate organizations. As such, we didn’t have to recruit other agencies for the project because we already knew what the team’s capabilities were. While we originally planned to use multiple third-party vendors throughout the project lifecycle, Skyrise did so well that we decided to collaborate with them for all of our development, testing, and maintenance needs.

What is the status of this engagement?

Their work started in January 2013 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s been a huge success so far, and our prospects look promising. Having sold our parking system to multiple large companies in Scandinavia, we have some deliveries scheduled and are in the process of rolling out our services. Moreover, our software has received high user-satisfaction ratings for its functionalities. Because we’ve focused on providing a superior end-user experience, drivers appreciate the convenience of our integrated ALPR and payment system for daily use.

How did Skyrise perform from a project management standpoint?

Overall, I would say they’re very professional. We typically use a combination of the PRINCE2, rational unified process (RUP), and agile methodologies to organize the project. Every day, the business manager and I meet with Skyrise’s technical resource to discuss any status updates.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I value their honesty and ability to meet deadlines. If they notice any problems they tell us immediately.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They may benefit from increasing their manpower in a sustainable way. Considering how specialized our project is, it can be hard to find qualified resources and train them for a few months only to eventually let them go. While I understand there are pros and cons to adding more people, sometimes it can feel like there isn’t enough bandwidth for the project.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

No, nothing comes to mind.
