The Review
Feedback summary: 

Though the client has moved the project internally, the engagement went smoothly with Slash. Their collaborative approach to the partnership and high-quality work were important assets. Their ability to adapt and understand the project requirements made the relationship flow easily. 

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 co-founder of a payments company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Slash?

We were a startup with a good idea but we didn’t have the in-house skill sets to develop our web and mobile app. We decided to outsource our initial development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed our web and mobile app that enables the owner of a business to create and order cards for employees. They can see the transactions that those cards have made, give them management information, link it to the web and mobile app. 

Slash built the backend API connectivity to multiple partners where we get transactional information. They enabled that backend transaction into the frontend design and the display of the design information to the customer.

What is the team composition?

The maximum size of the team was 10 people or slightly more. We didn’t start with a full-time dedicated project manager but as the project progressed, we then put in place a restructure of the team to have a project manager from their side full-time.

How did you come to work with Slash?

We were doing our UX/UI design out of Singapore and one of the founders of the company had a relationship with Slash so we hired them. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from September 2018–June 2020. We’re now taking it over in-house.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Everything was good overall even despite the time differences between us. They understood our requirements really well and developed them. They delivered very high-quality work.

How did Slash perform from a project management standpoint?

Once we had the project manager in place, along with our own project manager, everything went really well. The last nine months have been more productive than the first nine months because we were more organized and had more staff on our side. They were responsive to changes.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It wasn’t a typical client and vendor relationship; we worked in full partnership as one team together. We shared good times working together. Their familial, collaborative approach was the most important thing for me.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could have been better at pushing back at us at times when things weren’t 100% clear or when there was a misunderstanding.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Work in a collaborative, trusting way. If you trust them, they’ll trust you. We also spent some time making it clear what the product was and what we wanted to do.
