 Backend API for a global leader in optical retailing Image

Backend API for a global leader in optical retailing

GrandVision is a leading company in the optical retailing sector that has recently been acquired for $8 billion. The company needed support from expert software engineers in building a solution for customer data storage, which is essential for its daily operations. We set up a dedicated team of senior backend developers to create an API for accessing and modifying customer data stored by GrandVision.


Challenge

Our client was looking for a team of experienced backend developers for an internal project: a global repository of customer and order data. Given the project's scale, the proposed solution presented many challenges and required significant technical expertise, as well as a high level of seniority. That's why the company was seeking software developers who had in-depth knowledge about the specific technologies used in the project. GrandVision reached out to us to supply them with quality candidates.

Solution

We built a team composed of two senior backend engineers within four weeks of setting the project requirements. Soon after, we added another software developer to the team - and managed to do so within two weeks since the client's request.

Our team works as a dedicated team responsible for the development of an API for the client's system; a global repository of customer and order data. The system needs to integrate with many internal and external tools used by the company's employees. To provide them with the information they need, the solution has to be designed to gather and store data in a normalized format. The API allows accessing and modifying the records stored in the system.

Results
  • First version shipped to production within 12 weeks
  • Dedicated team setup within 4 weeks
  • Team scale-up within 2 weeks
IT partner for startup from wellness sector Image

IT partner for startup from wellness sector

Building a web-based application for a UK company.
 

Our client is a UK-based company operating in the health and wellness sector. Our team has developed a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) to help the client validate their product idea on the target market: a web-based application dedicated to tracking and improving wellbeing. We have supported T-Cup at every step of the way, from planning, workshops and

backlog development, through implementation, to hosting and support.

Challenge

Our client was looking for an experienced development team that would help bring his product to life. The application would gather information from users by allowing them to fill out forms, generate a result, and then offer personalized wellbeing tips. The client designed the product to work as both B2C and B2B, the latter helping organisations to track the wellbeing of their employees and get insight into the overall level of satisfaction while ensuring full data privacy.

Solution

Our client outsourced the entire process to our team. We started by carrying out a workshop to better understand the company’s needs. Our team then proceeded with backlog development and feature priority, to enter the implementation phase, which is still ongoing. We’re also responsible for the application’s hosting, maintenance, and support. The application is hosted on AWS Cloud and takes advantage of a serverless framework (Lambda) that enables rapid development.

Results

  • Working application prototype delivered within 6 weeks.
  • Full release planned following 4 months of work.
  • Team of 5: a business development specialist and 4 full-stack developers.

Dedicated development team for a US-based health-care company

ConnectYourCare is an American organization that provides consumer-directed health care plans (CDHPs) for Blue chip companies in the US. Consumers can access CDHPs with underlying health plans that cover health expenses and healthcare accounts. To develop its customer portal, the company was looking for expert software engineers. We quickly

built a small team of full-stack developers to deliver the critical portal functionalities.
 

Challenge

ConnectYourCare intended to hire an expert software development team that would help to build the customer portal. The portal, available at www.connectyourcare.com, allows managing CDHP accounts directly from the browser. User can request payments for medical services, see the amounts of funds located on different accounts, and access the full expense history. The system also settles payment transactions and handles financial transfers.


Solution

We partnered with Space Inch, an American firm to set up a team of two full-stack software developers (one senior and one mid-level). They’re responsible for developing the existing product by adding new functionalities. Our team is also preparing a plan for migrating the platform to new technologies and applying architectural changes.


Results

  • Successful remote collaboration (7h time difference)
  • Expert dedicated team
  • Continuous technical improvement of the platform

Ingresso is a London-based technology company with a global distribution platform for the entertainment industry for their business partners to sell event, theatre, and attraction tickets. Our client was looking to quickly expand their software development capacity to meet business demands, and turned to us for

help. We provided the company with two senior Python developers responsible for developing integrations between their middleware platform and third-party ticketing platforms. The collaboration was a success and continues to this day.


 

Challenge

Ingresso was set on growing their ticket platform quickly and needed skilled software engineers who can build a significant number of third-party platform adapters. The company turned to us for assistance to rapidly expand the engineering team alongside their local hirings.


Solution

We started by providing the client with one dedicated senior Python developer. The cooperation was successful, and the client asked us to add another expert to the team. Both developers had to pass our client's rigorous recruitment process that focused on both hard and soft skills. We delivered another senior Python developer within six weeks, and have since continued our collaboration continues to thrive.


Results

  • Dedicated team of senior Python developers
  • Quick team set up (experts added to the team within 6 weeks)
  • Successful collaboration

Our client is a rapidly-growing startup in the electrical mobility sector. Our dedicated team supports the company by building the platform for sales, third-party integration, charging, and electrical network maintenance. We implement new business requirements and infrastructure improvements following agile and lean product development

methodologies for a productive work environment.


 

Challenge

The client approached us with a partially completed solution that required further work. The platform wasn’t stable and lacked some key functionality. The client needed a team of experienced software developers who would get to work improving the platform right away.


Solution

Our team has introduced the agile methodology as well as software engineering best practices such as Continuous Integration and Delivery (CI/CD). We facilitated the migration of the app to the cloud. The platform is architected using micro-services. Our next step is the implementation of the best-in-class cloud solutions. At the same time, our team is responsible for developing three other projects that address the most pressing client needs.


Results

  • Team of developers expanded from 2 to 6 full-time consultants.
  • 3 different projects are developed simultaneously.
  • Building a rewarding relationship with the client.


 

 Dedicated team for a FinTech project Image

Dedicated team for a FinTech project

We set up a dedicated team to build a web application to serve as financial reporting hub. The platform serves over 1000 corporate clients who use it to fetch and query gigabytes of financial data spreadsheets and PDFs daily, and to initiate items of work digitally.

Challenge

The client aimed to create the platform from scratch. That is why they needed a team of experienced developers to

quickly deliver a working MVP to validate the idea. Recruiting software developers is expensive and time-consuming; the client wanted to avoid that by hiring a dedicated team that would collaborate smoothly with the internal business team.Solution

Using a cloud-based infrastructure, our team has delivered scalable mechanisms for auditing, downloading, and querying data market leaders use in their analyses. We have been involved in building the platform from the prototyping phase to the solutions’s implementation, maintenance, and further scaling.

Results
  • Bringing the client reporting hub to market in agreed timescales.
  • Delivery of a high-quality, scalable solution based on micro-services with Continuous Integration/Delivery.
  • Building a lasting relationship with the client.
  • Introducing all parts of tests, including accessibility and regression tests.

Feedback summary: 

Solidstudio Software House’s efforts continue to generate returns on investment. The team is flexible, adjusting to changes in specifications with ease and exceeding expectations to deliver products quickly.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Aaron Deadman (Engineering Manager, Ingresso Group Limited): Jeffri (Engineering Manager, Ingresso Group Limited) and I work for a small to medium-sized enterprise. Within our division, we have a total staff of 30–50 people. Our development team totals about 15 people.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Solidstudio Software House?

AD: We wanted to grow our ticketing platform, which involved connecting to supply systems. We didn’t have the personnel to meet the large number of opportunities that were coming to us. We identified an area of our engineering product that could be outsourced.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

AD: Solidstudio Software House joined our team to help develop our products. Whenever we come across a supplier who uses a technology or software platform that our system doesn’t support, their team builds an integration using a web API to connect the product with our platform. Essentially, their team helps build supply integrations and API connections with our core system. Their team manages development using Async Python and HTTP—basically cloud platform engineering. They also contribute to the planning process, outlining the next phase of development.

What is the team composition?

AD: Initially, we started with one teammate. When it became obvious that they were competent developers and had a good working relationship with our team, we increased the number. Now, we work with two active developers and are considering expanding that number.

How did you come to work with Solidstudio Software House?

Jeffri Abu Bakar: I reached out to their team and other outsourcing service providers in Poland, which I knew through my contacts. Solidstudio Software House was a fairly small startup at the time. Our teams shared a similar mindset as we’re also a fairly small operation. Cost was also a consideration. Being relatively new to this area of development, Solidstudio Software House was able to offer us a good deal.

AD: As well, we didn’t want services from a large company where we would make up an insignificant portion of their total revenue. With Solidstudio Software House, our project would represent a significant percentage of their work. We figured it would make the working relationship more effective.

What is the status of this engagement?

AD: We started working with Solidstudio Software House in March 2019, and our collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

AD: We’ve seen a return on investment from ticket sales of products Solidstudio Software House has built into our system. As recently as yesterday, they concluded another project, which has gone live. We’ve already seen a return on investment from tickets sold on new connections developed for new suppliers. Three or four connectors are live and in production. Their team built another three, which are waiting for production deployment. Another two or three connectors are under active development at this point.

How did Solidstudio Software House perform from a project management standpoint?

AD: It has more or less felt like we have two additional employees. They’ve maintained a shared calendar. We’re fully aware of the developers’ schedules so any time off is known early. Day to day, their team has been active in our chat channels as well as our planning meetings. We've never experienced any problems with communication or scheduling.

Solidstudio Software House has always been responsive and completed work quickly. Their team holds themselves to a high standard of work. When requirements have shifted, they were agreeable and understanding. If there was a time crunch when we’ve needed to make last-minute changes to a sale due tomorrow, their team has checked-in after hours. We’ve been happy with the level of communication and work ethic from Solidstudio Software House. They’ve joined our team effectively.

What did you find most impressive about them?

AD: We’ve had no problems communicating with them despite language barriers. There hasn’t been any miscommunication. We’re consistently impressed with the speed at which they’ve taken on projects and produced results. They’ve been able to iterate on products quickly too. We’ve gone from absolutely nothing to having a product that’s actually workable. In some cases, we can start using and getting a product into acceptance testing within a week and a half or two weeks.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Nothing comes to mind specifically.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

AD: I would highly recommend them. As with any outsourcing relationships, be aware of what you’re trying to accomplish and make sure the scope of work is well defined.

JAB: When we started our working relationship, Solidstudio Software House provided us with several potential engineers to join our team. Don’t just pick anyone they introduce. The company needs to know what your expectations are for their engineers.

Feedback summary: 

Solidstudio Software House’s work has withstood extensive third-party penetration tests, which speaks to the quality of their work. Technically knowledgeable and agile, the team’s ability to take scope changes in stride makes them ideal for experienced startups.

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 CEO of T-Cup. We’ve built a well-being technology that helps track an individual’s health, mood, and ambition levels. It’s both a B2C product and a B2B tool that allows organizations to gain anonymized insight into their staff’s well-being.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Solidstudio Software House?

I was looking for a development firm to create my product’s MVP and received a good referral for Solidstudio Software House. Once I started working with them, it was clear that they were engaged, technically capable, and very understanding. 

The project has since grown into a second phase, which customers have used, and I’ve retained them as a technical partner. They continue to enhance the solution and support our business.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

Solidstudio Software House has developed the initial MVP of our app, which consists of three main parts. 

The first component is the B2C app for iOS and Android, which allows users to track their well-being, much like other health apps. There’s a notes feature, which functions as a personal diary, as well as a survey section.

To keep users engaged, we introduced gamification elements into the questions and answers and focused on giving instantaneous feedback. There’s also an interactive interface that displays user statistics through various mediums, combining in-depth graphs and forms over with fun animations. 

The second part is a desktop version that prominent blue-chip organizations can use to gather anonymized survey data on their employees. The third part is an overview dashboard that allows administrators to tweak questions, rules, and other survey settings.

In terms of the tech stack, Solidstudio Software House primarily uses Java and Progressive to build our solutions. They’re also skilled in several open-source tools and have used them to create dashboard animations.

What is the team composition? 

We’d worked with a business analyst initially and now coordinate between three developers. What’s so interesting about Solidstudio Software House is that they don’t really have junior developers. Instead, they’ve assigned two senior people and a lead.

How did you come to work with Solidstudio Software House?

I’d never outsourced my IT needs before, so this project felt like a bit of a risk. Based on my tech background, I reached out to a few large businesses and CTOs in the UK market, and they referred me to Solidstudio Software House.

I conversed with their CEO, arranged to meet them, and workshopped a detailed MVP proposal with them to see if they’d be a good fit. The team passed with flying colors, so I decided to hire them.

How much have you invested with them?

So far, we’ve spent between $250,000–$400,000. The MVP cost a reasonably modest amount because I just wanted to see how they’d develop it. When I saw that they’d exceeded expectations, my confidence grew, and I was happy to extend the scope of work.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started to work with them right about February 2019, and the project is ongoing. The plan was to have them build the product and pass it over to our side to manage. But I’m not at the stage where I see them more as a strategic partner.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We work with large blue-chip banks, so our solution had to undergo an extensive penetration testing process. Suffice it to say, Solidstudio Software House nailed it on the first try. There were a few minor issues that they’d adjusted fairly quickly, but, all in all, it was very encouraging.

How did Solidstudio Software House perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been phenomenal. Not only are they incredibly accommodating, but they’re also good at documenting their work through Trello. The team writes out all stories in detail, we sign it off, and then they build it.

I can’t praise them enough on their responsiveness. They haven’t missed any deadlines and communicate well. We work using an agile methodology, so they call in every Monday via Zoom for our stand-ups. In addition, we alternate visits every month or so to meet face-to-face.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Solidstudio Software House has been quite accommodating to our needs. Most IT projects suffer from scope creep and changes, but that’s the nature of working with a startup as a client. The core concept can sometimes change based on customer demand, and that inevitably leads to rework.

While that’s often a source of friction for some IT companies, Solidstudio Software House has been professional about making necessary key changes. They’re technically sound, use the latest technologies, and deliver secure code.

Are there any areas they could improve?

During the early stages, they relied heavily on Trello stories to work from. However, as with any management tool, writing out really detailed technical specs without discussion can lead to things getting lost in translation.

There have been times when we’ve had misunderstandings about what I wanted versus what they understood that to be. But that’s something they’re working on. I’ve encouraged them to write out their stories and talk to us first before releasing them to their developers.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?
 
Even if you’re just looking to build an MVP, you should be open with them about the big picture from day one. What is your business trying to achieve and how? They have a lot of experience working with a multitude of different customers from various countries, which gives them a strong business sense. Once I started to share more about our vision with them, they helped enhance our system by a lot.

Feedback summary: 

Internal and external feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Solidstudio Software House’s responsiveness and ability to produce implementable, on-time deliverables are hallmarks of their work. Their organization skills and ability to work independently make them a valuable 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 managing partner of Space Inch. The company began as a mobile games company. We transitioned two and a half years into being a custom software/enterprise software company. We build SaaS software for mostly American clients.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Solidstudio Software House?

We have web and mobile capabilities, but we use subcontractors to do most of the design, development, and QA work.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Solidstudio Software House is doing development and QA for us currently on one of our larger projects. They're updating legacy code for a Fintech company that is trying to be more modern, user-friendly, and intuitive in their enterprise solutions. Solidstudio Software House primarily works in Java. They're doing full-stack work to build new features and make the SaaS product accessible from a Web Content Accessibility Guidelines standpoint. 

What is the team composition? 

We work with a range of senior to junior people that all do Java work. It’s one senior developer and three middle-tier developers, as well as a junior QA resource. 

How did you come to work with Solidstudio Software House

We were working with another Polish firm first. We love working with. They recommended Solidstudio Software House to us and we trusted them to make a good recommendation. 

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $100,000–$150,000. 

What is the status of this engagement? 

Work began in late April 2019, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

While it's difficult to quantify at this early phase, one key indicator of success is a high level of satisfaction from the client. Their level of talent is quite high. Solidstudio Software House is really conscientious, experienced, and self-reliant in their work. 

How did Solidstudio Software House perform from a project management standpoint? 

Their team is excellent. Solidstudio Software House is quick to respond and find solutions. They figure things out on their own. They meet deadlines because they're so focused and organized in their daily work. They're able to do overtime when it's necessary to meet a tight deadline. Their style of work has made it so that we don't ever have to ask them to do extra work because they're so on the ball. 

We typically put an American project manager on similar projects. In this case, we put a project manager in place but then ended up not really using her. We were able to move her to another project because Solidstudio Software House’s team was so independent.

What did you find most impressive about them? 

Their level of professionalism is extremely high. Solidstudio Software House requires less oversight than many of the other vendors we've worked with. We track everything in Jira and they’re able to do a lot on their own without any oversight or guidance. Work that might have taken two days with previous vendors now takes only one day. 

Are there any areas they could improve? 

No, I don't think so. They're one of the best vendors that we've worked with, and we’re very happy with their work. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers? 

Something that we did that’s been successful is we asked for Solidstudio Software House’s input early in the process. They helped us to estimate the work plan. We haven't always done that, but there were some areas of expertise that we didn’t have. We relied on them to be a part of the early engagement. They became fundamental to the process so we've continued to use them for scoping projects.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Concise Software is a development agency headquartered in Berlin, with offices in Poland and Malta. We develop software for clients in different industries across the world. Our services include web and backend development using Java, Node.js, and other technologies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Solidstudio Software House?

We had been mainly providing web frontend and mobile development for our client from Germany in the electric vehicle space. They requested backend development for a solution which required Java Enterprise backend developers. We didn’t have available resources at that time, so we reached out to Solidstudio Software House for help.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Solidstudio Software House worked with us remotely out of their offices in Krakow. Every remote collaboration is difficult to an extent, so we had to address the team and process properly. They maintained communication with our client to understand their needs and provide the proper services.

One of the requirements was holding onsite meetings from time to time on location in Germany, which was never a problem for solid studio. We held at least three workshops, and they always provided a qualified team to work onsite.

The client didn’t have the proper methodology for software development in place for this kind of project. Solidstudio Software House implemented an Agile methodology to the workflow. They managed to perform a transformation within the internal team that was also involved.

What is the team composition? 

We started with a team of two developers and a project coordinator. Since then, we successfully scaled up to 5–6 people.

How did you come to work with Solidstudio Software House?

From what I understand, we received a referral for Solidstudio Software House from another vendor. They’re in the same group of software houses that have locations in Poland, so we approached them through that avenue.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Solidstudio Software House in the October–December period of 2018. The collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The client was happy with the quality of Solidstudio Software House’s work. They appreciated the Agile methodology they put in place and even increased the team from three to five members from Solidstudio Software House. We didn’t receive a single negative remark about their work. 

Solidstudio Software House also achieved commercial factors of success that pleased our client. Since they’re an external team, it’s difficult to say more about the specific impact they made, especially since we didn’t have many significant interactions.

How did Solidstudio Software House perform from a project management standpoint?

The team has high-level communication skills. They were able to discuss all the details and provide all answers in a timely manner. They provided all the information we needed and maintained full transparency throughout. We used software tools to manage the project. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’m sure there will be even more impressive factors we find about Solidstudio Software House once we have additional collaborative projects together.  

Are there any areas they could improve?

Due to the size of their organization, they have limited capabilities. We reached out to them for more services, but they were fully booked. Scaling their operation would be a good next step for them to take. Apart from that, everything was perfect. Solidstudio Software House provided everything we needed.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

The size of the team's operation makes Solidstudio Software House better equipped to handle smaller projects. I don’t know if they’re looking to scale quickly or not.

The team is mostly made up of Java Enterprise developers,  and that main technical capability is their sole focus. They can provide both backend and frontend development including work that relates to the Spring framework.

The small piece of the program they developed shows us how many places we have in the front. It allows us to know how many people we have booked, how many places there are, and how many more tours we can take. They worked on the system for three months and now we’re working on evolving it, with new features and parts. We’ll continue to work together long-term.

What is the team composition?

Our main point of contact is Pawal (Co-Founder, Solidstudio software house).

How did you come to work with Solidstudio software house?

We found them online as we weren’t happy with the cooperation from our previous company.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $25,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in June 2018 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The system works very well and helps us a lot. It’s easy, so now we can focus on the development of our company far more than before. Thanks to their work, we can arrange more events because we know exactly how many places we have and how many we can sell.

How did Solidstudio software house perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re always on time. Their way of doing the project was correct and it works really well. Most companies just do what is asked, but Solidstudiowere helpful by giving us ideas for how to do things. We communicate via email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re very precise. If they have a problem, they ask. Generally, they ask a lot of questions and make sure they do what we want.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I haven’t seen any problems with them. They know what to do and it’s easy working with them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I definitely recommend them. The cooperation with them is very comfortable, and they’re very knowledgeable about what they’re doing.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I own a startup financial consulting firm.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Solidstudio software house?

I was looking for an IT company that would build my product for me.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted an app that would connect tutors and students by allowing students to choose between interested tutors based on their profile and reviews. I also wanted the app to be scalable, cross-platform, and have a friendly UX.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I met their founders through networking in Krakow, Poland. I decided to go with them after a few meetings.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

Solidstudio delivered a web application, a website, and an Android application. I was involved in the process, but only from a consulting standpoint. To start, I received a draft of the of the design of the landing page and application, and the Solidstudio delivered the functionality in eight weeks. They worked in week-long iterations and presented their progress at the end of each week. In the end, I received access to the codebase and their Amazon Web Services (AWS) production environment. They also supported my application for the next three months.

What was the team composition?

Their project team contained three developers and a UI/UX designer. After initial graphic design work, the team was narrowed down to just the three developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I received an application that met my requirements and helped me gather customer feedback. It’s also helped build a roadmap for the future.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They did a really good job with transparency. I had access to Trello, which let me track progress, as well as the proper Slack rooms so that I was involved in the development process on a daily basis. The project was finished on time, though we did have to make some changes to finish the MVP quickly.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Two things stood out to me: transparency and a personal touch. I was able to talk with the guys that run the company and plan the next iterations. They always did what they could to go with lean product development principles.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

From my perspective, there isn`t much to improve. I was happy during our cooperation.
