Computer Vision Box Counter Image

Computer Vision Box Counter

The problem


We are building a system for a chicken delivery hub in Ukraine. They face the problem of stealing goods while weighing boxes and loading them to trucks.


The solution

The solution of the problem is automated confirmation of boxes count, located on the pallette, which is being weighted. In this case, employees are not able to put into the system wrong number of boxes, which they did to

deceive the system and steal goods.


This system consists of:

  • Cameras, established in a viewpoint of weigher, which has a view on the palette from all angles.
  • Deep learning model based on pre-trained ResNet34 and handled by PyTorch, which is trained to detect boxes on an image and can count number of boxes on each.
  • Analytical software, which use model, mentioned about to detect boxes and count an exact number of boxes on each palette.
  • Software that connects analytical system with company's PIM


Real Estate SaaS Image

Real Estate SaaS

Real Estate SaaS is a platform that helps people to sell their homes without being at the mercy of high commission fees. Platform owner is licensed real estate broker who decided to make his clients' live easier. Using this platform customers are in total control of the way their home is sold.


The application offers customers the variety of solutions:

  • System allows you to drag and
drop videos and photos of the property, choose an option of a payment to be automatically charged for the selected variety of add-ons via Stripe payment system.
  • Properties are automatically listed to the MLS base.
  • Showing and scheduling open house days and receives the offers when to review house.
  • User have the option to upload multiple properties in one account.
  • Choose the most valuable offer in your profile to close the deal.

  • Technical approach


    For storing static frontend files we use configured Bitbucket Pipelines that build and deploy each commit on master branch and upload them to AWS S3.


    For backend we run building and deployment scripts that builds docker image from source files with pre-installed all dependencies, pushes that image on AWS ECS, then config AWS Fargate task to use this repository and run this task in cluster. AWS Fargate task can be accessible via AWS load balancer.

Spring brought an open-mindedness and can-do attitude that created innovative solutions in the face of challenges. Customers can expect a responsive, motivated partner.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I’m the CEO assistant for management and internationalization at Spectrum AG. We provide a trainee program designed to fill the gap between what today's college graduates learn in universities and job requirements.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Springs?

    We needed to automate our service, which was being run through Excel sheets. Compiling and presenting our data to management was becoming a serious problem.

    What were your goals for this project?

    We were aiming to reach specific international expansion goals.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    They contacted us through LinkedIn.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    Based on our internal requirements, they designed and developed an ERP. They were also responsible for security and QA.

    What was the team composition?

    Our primary contacts were their COO and a project manager. I’m not sure who exactly worked on the project or how many people there were.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    It’s too early to determine the actual impact of the project, but we can say our employees’ productivity has been significantly enhanced. Finding information is much easier than it was when we had to look through countless Excel sheets. Producing reports and presenting data to management is also much simpler than it was before.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    They organized the effort into two levels: a project team and a project committee. The committee set the scope while the team implemented its plan.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    They were highly responsive, deadline-oriented and solution-driven. Whenever we had a question, they responded directly. Their willingness to incorporate functionalities into the requirements after we began was especially noteworthy. Instead of saying no, they looked for ways to integrate new features into existing modules.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    Internal communication between the project team and the project committee regarding the scope could have been improved, but we had a very positive experience overall.

    Feedback summary: 

    The new application has been pivotal in meeting regulatory requirements. Springs was actively engaged throughout the entire process. They more than compensated for limited design proficiency by welcoming feedback, immediately applying revisions, and creatively resolving difficult bug issues.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I am the managing director for a software solutions company that specializes in the construction and services industry. We provide bespoke integrations to third-party software as well as a SaaS product for document automation.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Springs?

    A client approached us about a custom integration to a workflow management system. The project—which relied heavily on Cron API, deciphering large amounts of data, and creating notification letters and emails—needed some specialized guidance. 

    What were your goals for this project?

    The goal was to automate the seamless, accurate creation of notification letters and emails to over 20,000 customers in a timely fashion and with an intuitive interface.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    I read through a number of Clutch reviews and interviewed several companies. I liked the quality of Springs’ portfolio and, after speaking with their management, felt confident that they possessed the technical knowledge necessary to deliver a quality solution within budget. 

    Describe the project in detail.

    I provided the technical specifications and mockups for my desired design and flow.  Given the technical nature of this project as well as my familiarity with the third-party API, we decided that I would manage the project directly and call on their project manager as needed. The team implemented a DigitalOcean hosting platform and PHP architecture, then answered any questions I had regarding the setup.  

    What was the team composition?

    In the beginning, several people were involved with establishing the initial graphical user interface (GUI) and API functionality. Later in the project, I communicated with one developer on a daily basis, particularly during the testing and debugging stages.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    This project has been transformative for my client; they can now quickly and efficiently produce the notifications they need to stay compliant. They are so satisfied that they have requested bolt-on functionality for other areas in their business, such as warehouse reporting.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    My expanded involvement allowed me direct access to the main developer, which I prefer. The Springs team communicated well, remained accessible, and was always available for brainstorming and troubleshooting. 

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    They are a team of creative developers who find a way to make things work. Bugs are a necessary evil in software development, but the team took them in stride and always found a solution. I also found their prices to be fair and competitive. 

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    Design is not their strong point, and they could benefit from an in-house designer to refine their GUI. However, they compensate for this by quickly implementing suggestions and revisions. I would prefer to have a developer with strong coding skills anyway, as opposed to a one with a broader, less specific skill set like design.

    Feedback summary: 

    Springs delivers high-quality websites that satisfy clients. They’re knowledgeable developers that implement customized frameworks. Their project manager communicates effectively while executive-level engagement facilitates an organized experience. They’re collaborative and trustworthy.

    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 managing director of Huxley Digital. We’re a web development and design firm that services small to medium-sized companies in the B2B market.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Springs?

    Our in-house staff consists of web designers and marketing professionals, but we lack sufficient server-side expertise. Therefore, we needed an external company to act as our development partner.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    Springs developed a couple of customer-facing websites using a Laravel PHP framework. They’ve integrated these sites with a sophisticated user access management software and various APIs. They also designed some initial screens through a solid understanding of frontend frameworks like Bootstrap. Their team worked well with our designers to implement CSS elements into two subscription management platforms. More recently, they’ve used Vue.JS to complete the JavaScript work required by our current project. Overall, they’ve demonstrated a lot of skill in applying a frontend finish to the server-side work they’re assigned.

    What is the team composition?

    They’ve assigned us the same project manager for each project. While they act as our primary point of contact, we’re also granted access to the company’s principals.

    How did you come to work with Springs?

    We found Springs on Upwork and reached out to them. They handled the initial inquiry professionally and demonstrated an understanding of the complexities involved with our project. They asked the right questions instead of immediately agreeing to our terms. We appreciated that approach and hired them.

    How much have you invested with them?

    The project cost around £40,000 (approximately $52,000 USD).

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We started working with them in December 2016. There’s been a couple of small gaps in the engagement, but our relationship is ongoing.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    It’s a bit too soon to gather reliable metrics from the platforms they’ve completed. The marketing around their first project with us failed, so there aren’t many people using that product. They haven’t finalized our current project, but we expect it to be a success. Their development knowledge enables us to confidently accept and sell project s outside of our internal skill set. We’re a long way from investing in additional full-time resources, so their contributions are integral to our success.

    How did Springs perform from a project management standpoint?

    Their team is responsive and capable of providing thorough documentation. We used Jira to track the first project, but the current undertaking is organized by an old-fashioned mix of Trello and Google Docs.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    Their highly skilled team isn’t afraid to step up to a challenge. Also, their ability to communicate is exceptionable. The company directors are always available if needed. We’ve outsourced a total of 4 companies in our history, and Springs is by far the most notable.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    The language barrier can be frustrating at times. Although they communicate better than any other outsourced firm we’ve worked with, improvements could always be made.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    Every outsourced engagement needs a dedicated project manager on both sides. I frequently reach out to Springs and give them feedback on how they’re performing. That prompts them to fill in the gaps regarding project expectations. This level of contact benefits our projects.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I am one of two co-founders of UrbanCircle, an online marketplace for child-related services such as academic tutors, sports coaches, music and arts instructors, babysitters, and nannies. By providing access to a large pool of qualified resources, we strive to create a single reliable source for parents needing childcare and development support. 

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Springs?

    We hired them for web design and end-to-end development.

    What were your goals for this project?

    Our primary goal was a frictionless customer experience on both our web and mobile platforms that allowed families to view detailed profiles of various alternative service providers.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    They responded to our job posting on Upwork and were among 10 of the companies we shortlisted to interview. 

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

    They designed and developed the marketplace from scratch using a Bootstrap template design, then customized it to fit our requirements.

    What was the team composition?

    The team consisted of one partner, one project manager, and one analyst.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    Families can now make informed decisions concerning the best care for their children, then book and pay service providers online and on-demand, eliminating the need for bank transfers or time-consuming phone calls.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    Although the project leadership changed twice, the third and final manager’s attention to detail was instrumental in meeting deadlines and expectations. They were generally flexible regarding our change requests and did their best to deliver the demos on time. 

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Rather than confine their problem solving to the initial scope, they found creative ways to resolve issues.  

    Are there any areas where they can improve?

    Since we were first-time entrepreneurs with little experience, they could have been more proactive in presenting and suggesting best practices to us before we figured it out ourselves.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I’m a data management consultant in a small data consultation company. We’re based in Saudi Arabia and serve primarily the public sector across all data-related topics, including data strategy, data management, BI, analytics, and more.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Springs?

    We had a client who wanted to build a membership portal with basic functions in a very short amount of time to roll out a variety of surveys. The survey results would later be analyzed to extract pertinent findings. We hired Springs to augment our team for the project. The team was extremely helpful and supportive in understanding the problem, analyzing our needs, keep us posted about the progress, provide realistic estimates, finish the project on time, support/maintain it, and continue improving.

    What were your goals for this project?

    The portal had to support multiple user groups, non-trivial survey question types like customized grids, and high numbers of concurrent users. We were looking to create a simple and user-friendly UI that allowed for registration, activation, and password resetting with email confirmation. The platform also needed to allow users to change survey questions easily, suspend surveys, and republish them. Apart from these requirements, we needed a fast delivery as well.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    I had worked with them before this project, and once after. I found Springs on a freelancing site at the beginning, we then enhanced our collaboration and started to work together directly.

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

    They provided design, wireframing, development, testing, QA, deployment, and improvement services throughout this project. All was agreed upon based on an initial estimate for time, cost, and resources. After they received our documentation and understood the details of the project, they started working and kept us updated on progress.

    What was the team composition?

    We had a dedicated team that included developers, designers, and testers.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    The membership portal required an extremely swift and dynamic process to meet tight deadlines, and the Springs team followed through. The client launched the portal at a large event in which the audience was able to participate, and the product now allows them to capture important data for their business.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    They had a great approach to project management. We worked with the team directly at points to expedite the development process, but the project manager was always present to keep things organized. We primarily used Whatsapp and Telegram to communicate. Having direct access to the team allowed for properly setting expectations and avoiding miscommunications.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    They took time to analyze and understand our requirements carefully. I’ve worked with companies that intentionally ignore requirements and provide unrealistic estimations to resize the project and increase costs down the line. The Springs team emphasized our requirements throughout the process and planned ahead to provide a reasonable quote. We appreciated that they always kept us updated, even when they face challenges. They’re transparent in the problems that they come across, and they work collaboratively to find solutions.

    Are there any areas where they can improve?

    They provide excellent services in the web development space, but I’d love to see them expand their expertise to cover BI and analytics fields. We would love to work with them on interactive dashboards and other data visualization tools.
