Feedback summary: 

The app earned positive feedback and a 400% in the number of users. Effective QA and QC made development seamless and efficient. The team was communicative and available on available to work on weekends as needed. Bug fixes were always completed within 12-hour timeframes.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder and CEO of Thirdegree Inc., an app-based social media polling solution. We offer free services for anonymous polling, sharing, and demographic settings for targeted questions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Space-O Technologies?

My co-founder and I had a business plan and initial mock-ups, but lacked the expertise for in-house development. We needed an affordable vendor to supplement resources.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

First, we had a kickoff meeting and signed an NDA. We then collaborated on skeleton designs before settling on the final design and flow. Space-O Technologies developed the beta over a five-month period in nighttime sessions to accommodate the time difference. We did test builds each day after their nightly development work. After a series of test builds with QA and QC processes, the team launched the first beta on native iOS and Android platforms. Since the release, we’ve gone through four other functionality additions as well as revisions to the original data.

What is the team composition?

We worked directly with the senior project manager. The rest of the team included a senior developer, a junior developer, one QA specialist, and one QC specialist. Originally, they provided a communications manager, but the project manager took over that role.

How did you come to work with Space-O Technologies?

We looked for iOS and Android developers with experience in QC, QA, and UX/UI design. Additionally, we wanted a project manager to coordinate their team and serve as our single point of contact. We considered both local and international firms before requesting competitive bids from Space-O Technologies and two North American agencies. All three bids included similar estimates for requirements and time, which validated each firm’s expertise. However, Space-O Technologies was the most competitive company due to their expertise and low cost. Given the potential savings, we were willing to accommodate the time difference and geographical restrictions.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent approximately $40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We first engaged them in October 2016 and they started development in February 2017. The first beta launched in July 2017 and we have an ongoing partnership with the team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We didn’t know what results were realistic at first, but they exceeded our expectations for functional and complex deliveries. We went from two to 400 users between July–December 2017. The app’s success and positive user feedback resulted from collaborative brainstorming and testing during which they leveraged effective QA and QC to make updates increasingly more efficient and closer to our specifications. Likewise, the cycle between testing, test builds, and launches became more seamless.

How did Space-O Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated with the project manager via Skype and WhatsApp on daily basis. The team was available on weekends when issues couldn’t wait until Monday.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They understood our expectations and were receptive to feedback. The team always resolved issues within 12 hours.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They needed to emphasize QA and QC more. We handled those processes at first, but later held a meeting to show them our workflows. That meeting set expectations for best practices.

Any advice for potential customers?

Provide clear instructions without room for misinterpretation. But they can also help set guidelines when the client doesn’t have the pertinent expertise. Also, have QA and QC checklists in place at the start to save time during test builds by ensuring best practices.

Feedback summary: 

The app’s growth continues to climb steadily with each version launched, from an early 5% per week to 15% after the tenth iteration. Because of their geographic proximity, Space-O provides a direct line of same-day communication. They offer a consistent pool of talent and strong project management.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder and CEO of an India-based healthcare startup that focuses on the development of electronic medical records (EMR) applications for website and mobile. Six months ago, we launched an app and website after a year of development. We have been growing 15% week over week since then.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Space-O Technologies?

We hired Space-O for end-to-end app development. We launched the app for iOS, Android, and iPad platforms.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to build a minimum viable product (MVP) for an EMR application using requirements given to us by doctors. We already had a few groups of doctors signed on as beta testers. We wanted to make continuous in-app revisions based on the feedback we received until we felt confident we had a user-friendly, high value-generating app.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I searched online and interviewed more than 10 vendors who offer this app development service. I felt Space-O genuinely cared for their customers. Their current portfolio was good and they have some of the best iOS and Android developers.

Describe the project in detail.

Initially, the project management consisted of a project manager (PM), a business analyst, and myself until we defined a requirements-gathering document. After signing the document, we worked with the PM for a few weeks to finalize the wireframe. There were also a few rounds of discussion with a user interface (UI) designer regarding the logo and overall mockup design. Once we finalized the mockup, we deployed the Android app. After a few changes to the Android version, we then built the iOS application and the website. We continued to revise the app 16 times in six months until it was very easy to use.

What was the team composition?

The entire team eventually included one PM, one Android developer, one iOS developer, one PHP developer, and one QA analyst.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Continuous in-app changes based on user feedback are the key to success post launch. The app was initially growing 5% week over week, but that improved to 15% after we launched the tenth version. The app’s growth and increase in active users demonstrate the app’s progress.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Because we live in the same country, our communication channels are different than those of other Space-O clients. We primarily communicate via phone and use Excel to report bugs. The PM is either readily available or returns a missed call the same day.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their solid project management and talented pool of designers and developers impress me. They exhibit a willingness to shift gears based on constantly changing requirements.

Are there any areas for improvement?

If we had taken a dedicated resource approach over a fixed cost approach, we could have completed the project ahead of the deadline. We have always focused on quality over time. Overall, we built a solid product with only minor setbacks in the timeline.

Feedback summary: 

Space-O is responsive and efficient in updating features and fixing bugs. Full-time work with their developers has saved on costs and ensured quick delivery of services to customers. The QA team is good at meeting all business requirements and suggesting features that may have otherwise been missed.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the CTO of a medical healthcare advisor company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Space-O Technologies?

We needed to develop an iOS and Android mobile app for our telemedicine business. It needed to serve customers, but also meet HIPAA compliance on the backend data structure where patient records were kept.

We wanted for any person covered by insurance (be it through worker's comp or an individual) to be able to access a live doctor with a click of a button. Virtually, that doctor can prescribe medicines and advise them on visiting an emergency room or urgent care if necessary. We wanted users to be able to interact with a doctor quickly, avoiding a lengthy appointment process.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Space-O Technologies developed the app from scratch, along with a web application that maintains the database for the company. We agreed on some milestones at the start of the project and they made sure that I, as a stakeholder, was closely updated on any changes throughout the project.

We released a beta version to a test group of users, and once they were happy with the product, we released it on the iOS App Store and Google Play Store. As a feature of the app, Space-O made it possible for patients to snap photos of injuries in order to share with doctors instantaneously for better medical guidance. Additionally, the web-based database maintains all the HIPAA compliant information from the various doctor and patient interactions.

What is the team composition?

There's a team of 5 full-time developers assigned to our project. Some work on the mobile app development while others work on our backend (sql and php). One person acts as a project manager who also does our QA.

How did you come to work with Space-O Technologies?

It was basically by word of mouth. Another friend of mine had used their services and they referred them to me. I took a gamble on them for the first time and they did outstanding, so I decided to continue a relationship with them. They were a bit higher on the dollar per hour side compared to others, but the quality of work and the amount of time they were willing to dedicate to my project offset the price.

How much have you invested with them?

In 2017, we spent a little over $68,000 for the backend and a little under $100,000 for all work combined.

What is the status of this engagement?

We've been working with Space-O since mid-April, 2015, and the app launched around October, 2017. Since we're constantly upgrading and adding new features to the products, we retain their services.

 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since they took over the entire technology team, we did not have to look and interview other candidates to hire full-time for our technology. This saved us a tremendous amount of money.

With the ongoing relationship, they're just one quick e-mail away and quickly jump into action on any issues. Their 24/7 support is very profitable for our business, because it allows us to promise fast delivery times to clients. As a result, we're able to expand our business faster.

They have a very good QA team that validates that all the business parameters discussed are met. They're also proactive in suggesting features that my team may have missed. In a few instances, we've adopted their suggestions and it's worked well for use.

How did Space-O Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

Their team starts by gathering business requirements and creating a plan of action that includes a cost structure. The constant agile process lends itself well to the changing nature of the project.

Their Vice President of Operations is a great chap. If we have any issues, he jumps on the call first thing to troubleshoot. If required, he'll bring in additional specialists as needed. He does a good job keeping the development team and the project backlog updated so we're able to achieve our deadlines for releases and milestones.

We're in communication everyday. Since I've been working with the developer for over 3 years, I trust their work. Keeping resources consistent over the years has been a great benefit.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I find their responsiveness most impressive. They're able to turn requests around quickly and efficiently. There's always a clear place for escalation when needed, and they're very proactive in fixing any issues that may come up.

Space-O quickly rectified any bugs, which is one of the most important traits of a developer. With my personal background in development, I was able to bypass certain contacts and cut through a lot of red tape, which was also helpful in the process.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They charge you a little extra, so perhaps they could be a little bit more competitively priced.

For the QA process, I would also suggest that they move forward on decision-making rather than wait for a response from our team. There's a time difference, so their team would often wait to send an e-mail until business hours were appropriate on our end, but I'd prefer if they were a little more proactive in this area. I've spoken to their management team about this and they've taking steps to improve the situation.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Consider hiring their developers on a full-time basis to save on costs and develop longer relationships with certain developers to keep the same people on an evolving project. As our business grew, I realized that it was more efficient to hire them full-time rather than work with them on a project basis.

Feedback summary: 

Space-O Technologies was easy to work with and committed to creating the best app in the allotted timeframe. The team remained responsive and attentive to details the entire project. Although a few miscommunications occurred, nothing severely hindered their workflow.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the proprietor of an IT consulting company. We do enterprise software development, infrastructure support, database architecture and security, and mobile app development for the public and private sector.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Space-O Technologies?

We wanted to develop a mobile app, but we didn’t have the resources, so we started looking outside the company.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The primary project was a mobile app. Once Space-O Technologies got involved, we relied on them heavily for the development of both the Android and iOS platforms. They did JavaScript development for Android and iOS, web development for the front end and back end, and some API development as well.

They also managed the quality assurance testing. They proactively searched for bugs and told us of any flaws in the functionality. Whenever changes were introduced, they always did quite a bit of testing to ensure the platform as a whole maintained integrity.

What is the team dynamic?

I interacted with pretty much all the leads. From the technical lead to the project manager to the release manager. They always had at least one web developer for the backend, one web developer for the front end, a graphic designer, an API developer, a JavaScript developer, and a software engineer that dealt with the configuration of the platform and deployment from development to production.

How did you come to work with Space-O Technologies?

I used sites like Upwork and Elance. I searched for companies that provided the services I needed to finish my project, and I found Space-O Technologies.

How much have you invested with them?

$25,000 to $30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The development project started on January 2016, but some graphic design work happened prior. I always have work for them, mainly additional features for the original project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The product hasn’t gone into production yet, so we don’t have any official metrics. Like all development projects, though, there were some bugs in the development, but none exist in the final product.

How did Space-O Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

They were quite responsive. They aren't located in the US, but their availability was never limited. Anytime I needed to contact anyone, I was given a quick response. There may have been a few misunderstandings, but they did well considering the time difference. English was not an issue, we just needed to give direct and clear instructions, and they would come back with the expected results.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The quality of the work they produce is fantastic. It's definitely up-to-par with industry standard and what our competitors are doing. They use up-to-date technology and complete their work within the timeline. They exceeded my expectations in regard to the quality of designs and development. As a business, they’re committed to getting the job done and making sure my clients and I got exactly what we wanted.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Communication is good, provided they're given specific instructions. There were a few lapses but nothing that wasn't resolved. Once the understanding was there, they delivered every time.

Advice for potential customers?

Be as detailed as possible in every aspect of the project. The more information you provide at the beginning, the more examples you bring to the table, the more descriptive you are, the better the outcome of the project. Because of the time difference, you may not be able to immediately communicate with them, so those detail really help.

Because of their excellent work and project management, Space-O has become a trusted and reliable partner. They consistently receive projects and finish them on time and in budget. The whole team is accessible and they’re experts in their field.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CTO of a mobile app development firm.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Space-O Technologies?

We have numerous projects happening at once, and sometimes we need external help. We see how much work can be done in-house, and then we outsource the rest.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We hired Space-O solely to augment the dev team we already have. We supply all the design and technical background, and Space-O executes it. The type of work they do depends on the project, but they help with iOS, Android, and web apps.

What is the team dynamic?

We have around 20 people working with us. They established the original team, and I’ve been able to select a few more members based on skillsets we’ve needed. I interact with Eugene [CEO, Space-O] and Vladimir [CTO, Space-O] on a daily basis. I meet with Rakesh [CEO, Space-O] and Bhaval [VP of Operations, Space-O] once every few months.

How did you come to work with Space-O Technologies?

I’ve been outsourcing for quite a few years, and so I have an extensive list of questions whenever I interview a potential partner. Space-O answered all of them well, so we chose to work with them out of about 10 other serious competitors.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together for about four years now.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They follow directions well and complete their projects on time.

How did Space-O Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

They do a great job at project management; that’s why we still use them. I constantly give them work, and they always deliver.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re the outsourced company we’ve worked with the longest, and we plan to continue that relationship. They understand project details and our clients’ needs better than any other company we work with, and they want to achieve what’s best for our organization. They’re dependable, and their process is quick and efficient.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, they do good work.

Feedback summary: 

While the app hasn’t launched yet, it already has over 200 unpaid beta testers willing to try it out thanks to its appeal and quality. Space-O delivered according to the scope and worked through all change requests. The team showed top-notch project management skills and was very easy to work with.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We have a mobile messaging startup, targeting iOS and Android device users. We have less than 5 employees.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what reason(s) did your company hire Space-O Technologies?

The project was to build several new forms of dynamic messaging to increase the capabilities of smartphones beyond that of SMS and MMS. The opportunity to create new forms of messaging is unlimited as there have only been a few true breakthroughs since the late 1990s.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I discovered them on Upwork—Elance at the time. They provided similar services on a smaller mobile game project and were primarily involved in development and project management. They also gave us feedback on design and UX [user experience].

Describe the project in detail.

At the start of the project, we paid to fly a business development/UX designer to the U.S. for 10 days, which was extremely helpful for fleshing out the entire project and developing a rapport with Space-O. The designer was instrumental in developing wireframes and understanding the intent and scope of the project; he was able to convey that back to the project managers when he returned.

They provided a full range of solutions and support to the project. The core IP was developed in-house and planned and executed together with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

In the end, Space-O delivered the original scope plus several key changes that were discussed and made during development. The executive and management teams were fluent and easy to work with.

Our project still hasn’t launched, so we don't have any metrics on new users. However, we were able to get over 200 unpaid Android and iOS testers to download and use the beta. In contrast to previous projects, this is a very high number and is reflective of the quality of product that was delivered and the backend support to keep it running.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their project management was first class. After a few bumps getting started involving time scheduling between Texas and Russia and setting up Basecamp and the software design flow, there was never a time when I felt the project was being mismanaged. Designs were easily passed back and forth and changes/updates were timely.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They are very straightforward and will deliver exactly what you agree to.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I would recommend to anyone using Space-O to have your scope well defined and tested in order to receive the most accurate estimate for services. This will also save downtime in development and cut down on the number of changes to the original scope.

Feedback summary: 

The website design and developed was well-managed, with clear communication from Space-O throughout, and a willingness to deal with bugs and issues that arose. The site met the required criteria, and now forms the central component of the tech-based startup’s business.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a car inspection service company in France. I’m a manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Space-O Technologies?

We were looking to develop our company website. As we are a small company with only a small amount to invest into the project, we were looking for a good, competent partner with a low budget.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They designed and developed a complete website for us. That included the logo, the frontend, and the backend of the website, which was a little complicated. 

The result is a completely automatic on the website. When a customer places an order, the website checks who is available in that area to do the inspection. It sends an email to those people automatically. If they are interested, they can confirm that they will inspect the vehicle, which gives them access to the report to fill out for the inspection. Once they are done with the inspection, they submit the report, bill, and are paid automatically. Currently, Space-O is working on the final version.

How did you come to work with Space-O Technologies?

We put out a call for tenders. There were four companies and we selected Space-O because we got a good technical report from them. They gave us a reasonable price and we had a good feeling with their team.

How much have you invested with them?

I prefer to keep this confidential.

What is the status of this engagement?

The tender went out in January 2016, and we chose Space-O in May 2016. We are still working with them now.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’ve had a strong impact on our company. Our startup is 90% our website and they did the website, so the impact is huge. We measure their success by whether they hit the goals of what we want. Also, if there are too many bugs, that’s bad quality work and if there are no bugs then it’s very good quality. We had some bugs, but I think that’s normal for a project like this.

How did Space-O Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

We use Basecamp to manage the project. We communicate on Skype, and other similar platforms — all the communication was clear. However, there was a time difference so sometimes communication was a little delayed. We didn’t meet our target date, but that’s not a big deal.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are hard workers. They never say no and they work until they solve the problem. Any time there are bugs, they focus on the problem and come back with a solution no matter how long it takes.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I’m very happy with their work. I had a good relationship with the team leader and the developer.

Feedback summary: 

Space-O were committed to delivering the solution to a high-standard throughout the project. They identified and solved issues, and maintained good communication, even during the weekend. Currently, the product is being evaluated by investors and is ready to launch.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a technology startup. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Space-O Technologies?

I have a product that is in the patent processing phase and needs to be developed. It’s a software/hardware combination solution for parking management. It removes a lot of the overhead in the parking process. I contacted Space-O to develop the solution based on my requirements.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The solution is a web-based system, and I think the backend is developed in a Yii PHP framework and hosted on Amazon Web Services.

The technology was completely outsourced to Space-O and funded 100% by me. The solution is now being tested by first-phase customers, and then we’re going to expand testing. As you expand testing, you need more resources, so I'm also raising funds to be able to launch the product when it’s commercialized.

How did you come to work with Space-O Technologies?

I searched online and came across Space-O’s name on a website that talked about some of their projects, so I put them on my list. I contacted companies across the world, including the United States, Russia, India, and I think South Africa. I did background checks and contacted some references, eliminating most of the candidates that way. It took about eight months to assign the project to Space-O and make sure they understood my requirements.

How much have you invested with them?

I’d rather keep this number confidential.

What is the status of this engagement?

I think we started working together in April 2016. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The product is in the process of being commercialized, so investors are looking and evaluating it. I had the proof of concept, which was turned into the final product that Space-O built for me, and now I have investors looking at commercializing the solution.

So far the product is looking good enough to launch commercially, except there may be some small hiccups that we’ll need to fix. For example, out of 1,000 people testing it, it might work for 990 people and not work for 10 people. That’s an acceptable rate to launch at, but I'm a perfectionist and I want to reach 100%. 

I’ve given Space-O more work and have hired them for a second project.

How did Space-O Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re extremely available. We’re two and a half hours apart, but I can call them on Saturdays and Sundays to talk and most of the time they’re available. We communicate through Skype and email, and use Basecamp for project management.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are committed to delivering a good product. Usually, when you go with a company, they’ll deliver a project, then walk away even if you have an issue. Space-O put in a lot of effort to make sure that I am satisfied. They never asked for additional funds, even if something might have cost them more. They are professional in terms of how they run their business. 

I’ve worked with many different companies involving development, hardware and so on, and overall Space-O is much better than the other companies I used to work with.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I would give them more work, and I'm very satisfied with them.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Space-O Technologies?

If it’s your first time working with Space-O, make sure that the research and development are complete and 100% successful before Space-O gives you the exact timeframe and cost for the project. Do more legwork in the beginning. It might cost you more, but it’s better for them and for you.

My success was not only because of Space-O but due to the preparation I did on my side before I approached Space-O. You have to do your homework, and I think that’s important to mention.

The product achieved recognition from major international entrepreneurship competitions, attesting to Space-O Technologies’ engaging designs and dexterity in meeting complex requirements. Their efficient workflow and adaptability continue to impress. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-founder of a meal-planning project, which started at a prestigious research university about four decades ago. We wanted to build an application for people who have to follow a certain diet due to a condition like heart disease or diabetes. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Space-O Technologies?

We developed 2 mobile applications [iOS/Android] with Space-O. The applications help patients with heart disease or diabetes to manage their nutrition requirements.

I wanted to gather this data and hand it over to medical researchers. It’s very difficult to develop medicine for these people because doctors don’t know what they eat all the time. We wanted a huge database with information so that we can apply machine learning and find out what foods increase the heath of these people.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We wanted the app developed for both iOS and Android at the same time. Our audience uses both platforms, and we continue to work on both to provide access. We also have a website that we built ourselves.

The platform is getting complicated. It’s a big application with a lot of pieces. It keeps track of everything users eat and gives them feedback. The app also sounds an alarm if you eat something wrong for 3 days.

How many resources were assigned to your project?

We changed the project manager a number of times. We worked with the initial manager for more than a year. He was a great guy but had some personal problems. We were assigned another project manager, who is awesome. We’re very happy with her.

We have a huge database behind this project, so we have separate teams for iOS, Android, and the backend. Depending on what we need, they bring new people onto the team. We have a machine learning team that works alongside us at Stanford but not full-time.

How did you come to work with Space-O Technologies?

We found Space-O through one of my friends in New York who’d worked with them before. She said they were unbelievable, so we tried them. We looked at other companies in Sweden and Norway and still selected Space-O, primarily because the other companies needed 3 weeks to get back to us. Space-O responded the same day, did a wireframe, and showed us different mock-ups. We were impressed by their size and understanding of what we wanted to do. We just gave them a short description, and they recognized our needs immediately.

What is the status of this engagement?

Over the past 2 years, we have added more functionality and new designs. Space-O has provided great work and strong suggestions. We feel like we have a partner, not just a service provider. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

The app isn’t live yet. We want to launch in September. We’ve put the product on the app stores multiple times and attended a number of competitions. We’ve pivoted a number of times based on feedback. Thanks to the great work and the fabulous service provided by Space-O, our applications have been finalists in some of the world's biggest entrepreneurship competitions, including TechCrunch, StartupGrind, and 43North.

How did Space-O Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re awesome. Whenever we asked our project manager something, she fixed it quickly. In 2 years, they’ve never missed a deadline. We put pressure on them when preparing for competitions, but they were there day and night for us. They worked over the weekend to help us as well.

They have a clear process and communicate clearly. That has developed over time. Our project manager is very efficient, respects our time, and is well prepared. We have a time difference of 4 hours. I send material late at night, and when I call them in the morning, they’ve already gone through it and have questions ready. They’re extremely professional and document everything well.

We use Basecamp and confirm all the deliverables they send us. We’ve developed a way of working that meets both our needs. I send material in PowerPoint or a type of wireframe. They load questions, and I open my own questions for version control. Then, they start delivering while keeping me appraised. If they’re implementing something new, we approve it first.

What did you find most impressive about Space-O Technologies?

Space-O goes beyond the call of duty in offering great service. Often, we’ve had to deliver new versions of the applications in a short timeframe, and the team at Space-O worked many late evenings and weekends to do that.

Are there any areas Space-O Technologies could improve?

We have a candid feedback process. We’ve never had any issues. Once, a team leader was struggling because he doesn’t cook food at home and didn’t understand the goal of our product, which has a lot of recipes and tools. Space-O had another person jump in, and she understood our needs in seconds.

They’re constantly improving their processes for working with customers, which we welcome. I wouldn’t change anything. I think we’re quite lucky.

Although the app did not meet ideal expectations, it offered exceptional performance and was extremely popular among users. It rarely produced support requests or technical errors. Space-O proved their strong management and communication skills throughout the project. 

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

My startup offers a mobile app for the iPhone that allows user to create customizable, printable greeting cards. 

What is your position?

I'm the founder and owner.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Space-O Technologies?

At the time, I actually needed to make my iPhone app. I had already come up with the proof of concept and had my requirements fairly well defined. I also had a good amount of visual collateral for the user interface, which I needed to have implemented. I'm not a technical person, so I couldn't build the functional application myself. I knew I would need a partner and thought an outsourced solution would be ideal for cost savings.

SOLUTION

How did you come to work with Space-O Technologies?

I'm fairly positive that I found them online. I did the research myself and found a handful of potential companies. 

Could you provide a general cost estimate for this engagement?

It was less than $10,000.

What is the status of the project?

It's a live solution. We finished development and launched it back in 2012.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics, metrics, or user feedback from this engagement?

I don't have any real stats to share. Unfortunately, I've had trouble monetizing the app. Users really love it, but they're content using the free version rather than the paid version with the additional features. I didn't spend the necessary time and effort marketing the app, which meant that organic growth was entirely based on word of mouth. I rarely get negative feedback related to bugs or defects. Mostly, I receive questions regarding newer versions or more features, but I'm not ready to do that without figuring out how to monetize it. These are things unrelated to the app's performance, so it isn't reflective of Space-O's involvement. 

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

They were spectacular. I never had any critical issues with them. Space-O Technologies was always very responsive to my requests, and they never once missed a deadline. It was a great experience and very rewarding. 

What advice, if any, would you give to a future client of theirs?

My biggest lesson learned was that you need to have everything planned out. It's more than just having a sound idea and technical requirements. You really need to think through every stage of the idea, even after the development, assuming it's successful, you need to have expectations about user adoption and how you plan to continue supporting your efforts. That's probably something Space-O Technologies could help with, but the client should come into the project with a long-term vision.
