    Feedback summary: 

    Within 2 ½ months, Smartum Pro provided full-spectrum design and technical support and delivered 3 parallel products—the mobile version, requested features, and an API for development of new clients. The team produced results on time and within a reasonable price range.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    I'm the founder of Unius. Unius is a UK based company that provides a Human Resource Management/eLearning platform for internal learning process optimization.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    Our primary objective was to implement support of mobile devices into the existing system. The project itself was developed by another team (it took us about 2 years), and the system in its current state was hard to customize for our end-customers, so it had to be fixed.

    We started with design prototyping and the creation of a mobile version of the website. Additionally, the Smartum team had to add new features in the existing system, and customize it for one of our clients.

    We decided to select a development team from Eastern Europe mostly because of communication convenience (close time zones) and the high level of technical expertise in that region.

    SOLUTION

    Smartum suggested using RESTful architecture for mobile website development. REST would also allow us to quickly set up everything for further mobile app development and system updates.

    Initially, the system was developed using PHP. Various parts of the product had to be updated. Smartum suggested that we use module-based architecture for our project, so it would make the product much more flexible and we would be able to easily customize required features for each end-client integration. At this point, Smartum continues to work on improving customized versions, tech support, and the SaaS solution.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    As a result, Smartum delivered new features requested by end-customers, developed a mobile version, and an API ready for development of new mobile and desktop clients. Also the product has been optimized for high server loads (3000+ active users) and integrated with our client’s internal systems (Single SignOn , data export/import).

    The project was delivered on time, I can’t say about the budget for sure, as there were many changes and additional tasks, but in terms of separate tasks, the changes in price were reasonable.

    All the tasks mentioned above took Smartum 2.5 months to implement, but there are always new tasks to be done, so we want to continue our partnership.

    The best thing about our cooperation was that Smartum took care of all the technical aspects of the project, and was able to deliver all 3 parallel products from design to technical support.

    Feedback summary: 

    Smartum Pro has been very detail-oriented in all aspects of the project, from the cost of apps and quality of work to time requirements, deadlines, and rule compliance. The system has a low rate of error and issues are resolved within 48 hours. The team is collaborative and communicates well.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your organization.

    Admark is a young company based in Moscow, Russian Federation. Admark provides an advertisement and sales enforcement mobile platform for sharing sales, catalogs, and Admarks with customers in worldwide markets.

    What is your position?

    I am the founder.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What business challenge were you trying to address with Smartum Pro?

    The main goal was to build a high quality and user-friendly mobile and web platform for advertisement. The system needed to be easily scalable up to 1 million users, with support for apps by a wide range of devices. The system also needed to manage payments that require a high security level of solution.

    SOLUTION

    Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

    Smartum's team started out in the requirements clarification stage. They were responsible for preparing software requirements specifications, prototype design, and technical architecture design.

    The project was managed by Agile/Scrum methodology and took three months before our first release. Two of those months were active development, and one month was stabilization and launching. For now, we are continuing implementation of new features.

    The server part of the system was built on Java, as well as REST [representational state transfer] services with SOA [service-oriented architecture] with deep integration to Amazon infrastructure for easy scaling support [elastic load balancer and auto scaling]. The project used modern development frameworks and tools. The administrative interface with responsive web use involved AngularJS. The Mobile application was built with native mobile SDKs [software development kits].

    Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

    The total cost of this project was between $50,000 and $199,999.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    This project took three months to complete, but we are still working with Smartum to implement new features.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

    Something I really like is that we always discussed every detail regarding the cost of apps, time requirements for that, and the quality of work. All the rules were complied with and deadlines were successfully met. We rarely receive complaints regarding malfunctions or defects in the system. When anything comes up, it's usually resolved within 48 hours.

    I am completely satisfied because, for me, it's important to rely on our partners. Our technical specifications and requirements are sent to their management, and we explain what we need immediately.

    What distinguishes Smartum Pro from other providers?

    The Smartum Pro team is great at communication, and they have a deep understanding of the project. It's been good to work with guys who can understand what we need.

    Is there anything Smartum Pro could have improved or done differently?

    If can't think of anything the Smartum team needs to improve. I think we should work more together. I find that collaborative approaches are more successful in the long run. For now, I am very satisfied, so I can't say what they need to improve right now. The best advice I can give a prospective client is to make sure you scope out the work in detail before you begin development. It's very important to have a good design and architecture in place before you begin the functional development.

    Feedback summary: 

    Smartum Pro’s discovery phase included a features document, architecture, flow and UI/UX designs. After two attempts within two-day deadlines, the client didn’t find the set of user story questions they asked adequate, wouldn’t sign the contract, and requested a full refund. The team repaid $400.

    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 founder and CEO of a seed-funded startup in the South East Asia region with focuses in America and Australia. Our company is premised on structuring big data for healthcare use.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Smartum Pro?

    Our previous development partner in Ukraine didn't have the necessary expertise for our project, so they referred us to their own development partner, Smartum Pro.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    We didn’t agree on a scope and never signed any contracts. Part of our MVP involves machine learning and artificial intelligence. After a successful discovery phase with the first company, they referred us to Smartum Pro, who has successfully completed extremely complex projects. They have senior level computer vision and machine learning resources on staff.

    I didn’t want to do a new discovery phase, but I reluctantly agreed to it. It included redesigning the UI/UX and creating a features document, architecture, and flow for the app. At one point, they didn’t understand part of the design for the dashboard. I’d sent an explanation via email nine days prior. They acknowledged they’d been looking at the wrong sketch file. I was happy to pay for these services but wanted them to prorate the MVP development cost, a stage we never reached.

    They sent us the minimum features and user story questions I asked for. My COO flew in for our first scheduled scrum meeting. The questions they’d prepared didn’t make sense to us. I asked them to revise the set of user story questions twice, and they sent back two improved versions within the two 48-hour deadlines I set. I interpreted this as theft. I refused to sign the contract they requested.

    What is the team dynamic?

    I was in direct contact with three people including a project manager, computer vision resource, and a forward-facing business developer. I truly believe they have excellent developers like the original vendor told me they do.

    How did you come to work with Smartum Pro?

    We found the first vendor during our initial searched for teams in Ukraine. After completing a successful discovery phase, that team referred us to Smartum Pro who had the computer vision skills they lacked internally, like natural-language processing (NLP), optical character recognition (OCR).

    How much have you invested in them?

    We spent $2,600 on their services. I asked them to fully refund the $3,000 discovery phase fee I’d reluctantly agreed to pay. They sent me a word document contract to sign while I was abroad finalizing an investment. I’d raised another $250,000 in startup capital at that point. I thought the contract should be an encrypted form instead.

    They sent me a DocuSign version of the contract and the second set of revised questions. I still wasn’t satisfied with the quality so I refused to sign it. After requesting my business registration in Singapore, they refunded me $400. Their most recent email explained the charges for currency exchange, bank commission and three days of work.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We worked with them for two weeks in May 2018.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Describe the impact this engagement has had on your business.

    Not signing a contract or going forward with an engagement with Smartum Pro delayed my project by two weeks. I felt like the discovery phase was a waste of time. As a start-up, small little things like this can set us back quite a bit. My co-founder and I were disappointed by the quality of their product roadmaps, feature documents or specifications, minimum requirements, and three sets of user story questions. It didn’t seem to me like a senior resource had worked on them.

    We had a partner waiting for us to finish the API to integrate it in line with their timeline and milestones. We’re pre-revenue and pre-product funded, with about $500,000 from private equity investors in the Singapore region who aren’t happy. I told the original team how disappointed I was during a phone call. They tried to make it right paying me out of pocket for the other vendor’s service charge. The referring company knows Smartum Pro well and didn’t understand why our engagement ended this way.

    How was project management handled?

    We communicated through email, WhatsApp, Trello, and Slack, which I didn’t think was effective. We used a detailed Trello board for the management and product roadmap. Like nine out of ten comparable vendors, Smartum was unable to create innovative UI and UX screens for two key features on our Trello board. After they logged into the board, they didn’t leave comments.

    They asked numerous questions that I didn’t think were direct or relevant enough, so I didn’t answer them. I didn’t want to change my business operations processes. I asked if the computer vision resource was confident they could complete the project with 100% accuracy and specificity. He told me that he hoped so.

    In what specific areas can they improve?

    They should strive to be ethical and upfront about the work they’re capable of. Since I didn’t sign the contract they asked me to, I feel like they stole from me since they started working before I was ready. I haven’t seen many reviews of their team and want to share my opinions about my experience with other early-stage entrepreneurs who start working with them.

    What advice do you have for clients with similar needs to yours?

    Make to do your due diligence and don’t send money until you’ve signed a contract. I got caught up in the moment and forgot about basic tasks. Looking back, I would have made a phone call between the two teams’ project managers and myself mandatory since it was a referral. This would have ensured all the information was passed along accordingly. I didn’t see a reason to do two discoveries. I assumed they’d do this on their own time and send proper questions since the two teams have a working relationship.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    I’m a co-founder of HR and Management consulting companies located in Berlin. Together with Smartum Pro we’ve done a side project: a social app that would allow people to ask their friends and friends of friends to help find a solution to any kind of problem: from finding a good local restaurant to renting a flat.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    Last year, we came up with an idea to develop a social app that would allow people to ask their friends and friends of friends to help find a solution to any kind of problem: from finding a good local restaurant to renting a flat. The app will allow people to seek help and advice throughout their network. Many people searching for help or advice ask their friends for it. There are multiple social networks and messaging apps that are suitable for this. However, we thought that it would be much better to develop an app specifically for that with suitable functionality and UX, e.g. getting hints at what information to include in a search, the possibility to pledge donations and an algorithm minimizing viewing unnecessary messages.

    SOLUTION

    We looked for a full-stack development team with a major focus on the development of mobile apps to start the development of our app from scratch. First, we needed to design the app concept as well as UI and UX of the app. We also needed a donations payment system to be implemented in the app as it is one of the core app features.

    Smartum Pro provides us with full-stack app development: from concept development and design to code creation and testing.

    The Smartum Pro team also has been providing us with advice regarding desired features, application usability and technical implementation solutions that would improve our product and the project flow.

    We've done MVP for iOS for 6 months, now we keep going with the Android version.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    At the beginning, among other vendors with similar level of expertise, Smartum Pro was really swift in communication and that was the main factor why we chose them.

    In general, the main “metrics” I would talk about is meeting deadlines. There have been only few times when the team did not manage to deliver intermediate build on time. But if there were any problems, we were always aware of what was going on.

    During the development, we came up with multiple changes of previously designed and implemented features. Following Agile principles, the Smartum Pro team accommodated these changes rapidly and implemented them with minimal time and cost impact. We like the rapid and transparent communication with the team. We appreciate the attention the team pays to challenges that our project faces, helping us to overcome them together. When we were expecting the MVP product, the team had to go through this process several times, but at the end we got a stable and a bug-free app.
