Feedback summary: 

Softedge Technologies has produced impressive deliverables that have improved platform security and data collection to support business growth. The team is accommodating and provides updates frequently. A dedicated partner, they guide the collaboration with valuable insights to ensure success.

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 and CEO of a company called Accomplish. We have a mobile app for entrepreneurs and experts to connect in their communities for advice. The marketplace app serves as the permission to talk with your neighbors about their skills and information you need. The idea behind the platform's that having a conversation with someone who is nearby is more effective than reaching out online or googling everything. We’re beta right now in New York City only.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Softedge Technologies?

We needed help with our app. I’m not a coder but at the time I would have to go into our product and write code for each user who wanted to charge for their time, which was dangerous. We wanted a web-based admin portal but didn’t trust anyone to do it. We’d worked with four development firms over two and a half years and experienced many issues.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Their team has worked on our iOS app. Initially, Softedge Technologies made a web-based admin portal for us in Firebase, which is where we host. To charge for your time in the Accomplish app, users have to be labeled an expert. Basically, now all I have to do is click a button to label a user. They have also built the web-based portal to provide and track more data. Their team has enabled the product to track a list of around 100 KPIs about what all of our users are doing, where they are, and where they check-in. Our team had never even thought of the concept. For our next big project, they’re building an Android version because Softedge Technologies made a good case for it. Their team has also been involved in daily bug fixes and enhancements.

What is the team composition?

I’ve communicated with Alejandro (CEO and Founder, Softedge Technologies) and Andrés (Software Developer, Softedge Technologies) directly. Andrés is our dedicated developer but there are other people working on the project.

How did you come to work with Softedge Technologies?

We weren’t looking for a development firm because we had so many issues with our previous service providers. But then, we were introduced to someone who had worked with Softedge Technologies and was singing their praise at an investor's meeting. We talked to their team and liked them but weren’t a place to afford their services and said we’d love to work with them in the future. Two weeks later, we got an email from their team saying this is a gift from Softedge Technologies. They had gone ahead and done exactly what we needed for free as a commitment to our work and idea. It was serendipitous because we had just got a big investment at that time.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $55,000 so far and plan to spend up to $200,000 with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

They’ve been our partner since June 2019 and their work’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

There are no bugs; their code’s fantastic. We had zero partnerships before Softedge Technologies created the admin portal. We partner with coworking spaces and coffee shops because our users work in those places. Since we’re able to track all these metrics, we can give redacted data to potential partners. We now have 28 partnerships.

How did Softedge Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

We decided to track everything in Trello, which is where we review our road map and go through bug fixes. Communication with Softedge Technologies has been outstanding. Their team has been so good at keeping everything up to date in Trello and then sending follow up emails when a sprint’s complete.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Softedge Technologies cares about the product they deliver. Unlike our prior service providers, their team has been invested and has worked harder than we could’ve asked them to. It's a world of difference working with their team. It’s like having my own CTO without actually having a CTO. We feel that we have a partner in them. They’re honest about what’s in our best interest, answering our questions about features as if it were their product, which isn’t something we’ve experienced with other developers. Their dedication is beyond what's expected.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There isn’t anything I’m wishing for them to do and I’m a tough customer. They’re incredible.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

When it’s your own company, you have to let go and trust them because their team has your best interest at heart. Accept that Softedge Technologies is the expert and that their suggestions are for a purpose.

They take meeting their clients’ expectations very seriously. We had a very good experience with them and will certainly continue working with them.

Feedback summary: 

The ERP system that Softedge Technologies created saves the client time and resources by automating processes and aggregating data. Their team is notable for their extensive support; they were consistently available to troubleshoot and fix bugs. They were a competent, reliable partner.

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 a senior finance leader at a commercial analytics company. My work revolves heavily around the general ledger, so I essentially manage the company's accounting. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Softedge Technologies?

We had an outdated ERP system that required us to track our transactions on Excel. We were also experiencing some revenue recognition issues. We approached Softedge to create a specialized ERP system that would automate and centralize some of our accounting processes. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Thet created an automated system that could properly allocate and aggregate our financial data. They used Angular on the frontend to create the user interface, but I know that their tech stack also included C# and SQL. They provided extensive testing to ensure that all of our needs were met.

What is the team composition?

We worked heavily with a business analyst to flesh out our business requirements. They acted as a project manager who would give our requirements over to the design and development team. 

How did you come to work with Softedge Technologies?

They were subcontracted through another company that I had originally contacted. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We first engaged them in May of 2017, and the new system went live in January 2018. We currently have them on a support contract, where they fix any bugs that come up.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Softedge Technologies successfully delivered a system and database that saves us time by automating our work. By streamlining processes that were previously done manually, they've freed up resources and have generated savings. Our new system also allows for access to a global view of our data, which has been hugely beneficial for us. 

How did Softedge Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

I believe project management was largely handled by the company that was subcontracting them. They did a good job of translating my business requirements to pure code that works. Their output indicates their success. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were adaptable and quick in the face of emerging issues. They were always available to provide great support, which was surprising given our different time zones. There were also very few bugs in the final stages, which was impressive due to the sheer size of the project. I believe it's a testament to their skill and experience.  

Are there any areas they could improve?

The only thing that I can think of is the frequency and form of communication. I would've held more conference calls and would have engaged the entire team to keep everyone on the same page. It wasn't really their fault, but that was a learning curve. They still managed to churn out a sophisticated system in just six months. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

When working with any offshore provider, I recommend having a very detailed plan. It also helps to have a dedicated, internal project management team to make sure the project is on track.

Feedback summary: 

Responding quickly and working passionately, Softedge Technologies represents a significant upgrade in quality from the client’s previous outsourcing experience. Softedge pays robust attention to detail and is open to constructive feedback. Customers can expect a professional partner.

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 a partner at Decision Modeling Inc., a software development company. Our primary applications are focused on accounting-based functions, filling niche computation and calculation roles. Our primary clients are government agencies, Fortune 500 companies, large accounting firms, and law offices that make use of specialized accounting tools.

I am currently in charge of managing the conversion of some of our existing products to a web-based platform, including adding new features and capabilities to the system in the process.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Softedge Technologies?

Up until four years ago, everything we did was Windows-based. Then, we just started converting some of our products over to web-based solutions so as not to lose out on sales. We had programmed in Windows for 20 years, so finding a good partnership with a vendor that knew what they were doing important. After our first outsourced vendor didn’t work out, we turned to Softedge.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Currently, SoftEdge is helping us in converting some of our existing Windows-based software to web-based systems.

What is the team composition?

I have a team of five developers and two full-time testers. Alejandro (Founder and CEO, Softedge Technologies) manages things down there. I don't get too involved with him on the details of the conversions, but he's always there from a technical aspect to help out and guide his people in the right way if problems arise. 

How did you come to work with Softedge Technologies?

The main partner in our company sometimes has side projects going on that are not the main core of our business. He found Alejandro online years ago, I believe. After using him on custom projects, and another outsourced vendor failing to deliver, Dave brought him on here at DMI.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $1,000,000 with them so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The difference between their work and the work of our previous outsourced firm is night and day. I don’t have statistics, but anecdotally, we discovered that our previous vendor had hard-coded a user record feature. Softedge wouldn’t do something like that.

How did Softedge Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

One of the reasons our previous outsourced relationships didn’t work was because of communication. Talking across time zones can be very frustrating, and getting the level of thoroughness and detail we want is difficult. That part of our experience has been much improved with Alejandro’s firm. Being able to communicate with them anytime during the day since there's a one hour time difference is like a godsend.

We use JIRA as a project development tracking tool. Two to three times a week, I’ll have a meeting with the development team, with all three resources together, so we're on the same page. I will also meet with them via a web meeting as required. Sometimes, a week goes by, and I don't have to have any additional meetings with them; other times, it's multiple meetings a day for days on end to try and get stuff right. They're always available and prepared.

What did you find most impressive about them?

There's very little communication barrier there if any. They are professional, pick things up quickly and are eager to develop a long-lasting relationship with us. The enthusiasm has been noticeably different than the groups we used in the past. Additionally, they’ve very detail-oriented. They don't cut corners.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We write very detailed comments in our code because we understand that even if it's me looking at it 10 years from now, you can't spend enough time commenting on what you code. In my time working with SoftEdge, at times I felt that this direction was not being adhered to and have had to bring it up a couple of times in order to get the desired results, which is happening now.   I realize that our level of commenting on how our logic works is probably way beyond the normal industry standard, but time has shown us over and over during the last 20 years that it is better to over-comment that under-comment your logic.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

The most important thing in having development done by a third-party vendor is to keep the communication lines open and make sure the expectations and targets and details of the coding tasks are well understood. We’ve learned this the hard way in our other attempts and off-shore development, but with SoftEdge’s ability to be on the same schedule as us, with developers and testers that can communicate effectively with us directly at any time during the day, things have greatly improved.
