Kyivstar

 

Kyivstar is the biggest telecommunication operator in Ukraine providing communications and data services. Moreover, company expanded its business and in frame of corporate website launched online-store shop.kyivstar.ua which is specializing on smartphones, tablets, mobile phones, TV etc.

Kyivstar company has high requirements, that’s why a tender for the choice of the performer was held. There we 10 software development companies participating. Based on the results of the test task our company was announced as the best performer and we proceeded to cooperation.

Our task was to develop a series of landing pages for provided product list thereby increasing sales efficiency.

SmartSeeds

SmartSeeds is a service connecting both cargo owners and cargo carriers in one system in order to complete mutually beneficial transactions on transportation of grains and oilseeds. Initially, it covers the territory of Russian Federation, but with time it is envisaged to work in other CIS countries too.

This service integrates several types of users at the same time. From one sight there are grain owners and grain traders. They are interested in cargo delivery from the elevator after harvesting to terminal or port from where this cargo is sent to destination. One of the features of transportation process is the volume. Cargo can reach up to thousands of tons and it is necessary to have many trucks available. Also, cargo can not be in stock for a long time and has to be collected in time.

Before the launch of SmartSeeds cargo owners that don’t have proper vehicles had to solve this problem...

Maemo

Maemo is an online rental service. With it, users can save time and money by renting things they need instead of buying extra stuff. Or they can rent out the things they don’t need at the moment and generate income.

The major aim of the project was to create the platform which makes rental process and user communication easy and comprehensible.

Fwdays

Fwdays are IT conferences in Ukraine conducted for programmers, project managers, CEOs, CTOs and all specialists whose jobs are connected with IT. Since 2011, there have been 35 conferences, master-classes, and webinars. 7,000 participants have got the opportunity to listen to such speakers as Zeev Suraski, Derick Rethans, Jordi Boggiano, and others. The purpose of the Fwdays service is to inform the users about forthcoming events and to provide an opportunity to buy tickets online. We have developed the website and the corporate style of the organization since its foundation.

Our major aim was to re-design the site totally: to refresh it visually and to add a mobile version. We also decided to make the ticket booking easier and faster by minimizing the number of clicks the users do.

The new website is compact, which makes event browsing and purchases faster. Thus, we help our target audience to...

Nova Posta Shopping V2.0

The service NP Shopping is a product, and any product should not stay still nowadays. The work on the service optimization and its interface improvement should be a continuous process in the competitive climate of the present days.

In the course of the service long existence, our customer had found out a lot of drawbacks in the work of its interface and the service itself.

We wanted to know, which problems had been the most critical for the users. Besides, we were eager to find some new creative insights to approach the redesign substantially.

What has been done

We used the old site style, to which the users had been already accustomed, as a basis, due to the fact that the main task of the present redesign was specifically the UX.

In the course of the redesign we:

• Changed the home page. We made our best to explain the essence of the service to...

TicketsBox

The task of our team was to create a CRM system, which could enter the market as a unified platform for selling tickets for various kinds of events. The CRM system allows the organizers of the events register in it, create a personal account there, create accounts for the employees, choose the grounds/venues with up-to-date floor charts and create events of various kinds.

Angel Trains

Angel Trains — is one of the major players in the UK’s train leasing market. This rolling stock operating company was set up in 1994 and today its asset base comprises 4,469 trains with an overall cost of 3,4 billion pounds.

Stfalcon.com task was to create a mobile app, which will help the transport company employees connect to the internal observation system and watch the video from the cameras installed in the train carriages.

To work effectively, the train security guard must be able to move between the cars, and the application at this time must minimize the loss of communication. Solving the problem of the smooth application work, we provided it with the ability to self-detect service in a closed network without requiring any additional actions as to its configuration on part of the user. We used NSD (Network Service Discovery) with a dynamically-configurable Rest-Client developed specifically for this task. It is able to reconnect to the local server in a...

Nova Poshta Shopping

This is a service of goods delivery from foreign online stores. For several reasons, the first version of the site did not solve the customer's business objectives and the management of logistics company decided to do a full restart of the service. We were engaged to the development of a new version of the site, where in a short time it was necessary to:

  • Make a new homepage design, redesign the entire interface;
  • Rewrite a software engine from scratch on Symfony2;
  • Make a custom admin dashboard for content management;
  • Make an admin dashboard for warehouse operators;
  • Implement multi-domain, multi-template and multi-language;
  • Integrate website with external NPI (SOAP) service.

Triplook Mobile Apps

Triplook is a new service app in the sphere of tourism and dating with the elements of a social network. The service is aimed at helping users quickly find a fellow-traveler for long-distance trips or short vacation.

Stfalcon.com has developed a design and a mobile application for iOS and Android platforms. Server-end portion of the app was implemented on client’s side as a convenient and well-documented REST-API.

For instant messaging, we developed our own service for publisher’s event processing.  In our case, it is a core application which sends information about a new event (for example, notion about a new fellow-traveler) on the server. Realtime work service sends this even on the client:

— by sockets, if the user is online;

— by push notification or email, if the user is offline.

The advantage of this solution is in its simplicity and independence from programming language or framework: the messages between the servers are sent by AMPQ-...

Busfor Mobile Apps

Busfor is the online ticket sales service that allows you to purchase tickets for domestic and international travels. It works in Ukraine, Russia, Europe and South-East Asia.

At the early stage, we helped this company to enter the mobile market by creating apps for iOS and Android as fast as possible.

Solution

The main task was to provide customers with a mobile application for buying tickets, moving away from using a mobile browser. Initially, Busfor had a working site with adaptive layout that supported mobile phones. In mobile apps we decided to use WebView technology — it allowed to develop and publish mobile apps in the AppStore and Play Market in the short terms.

In addition to the site shell, we implemented authorization via phone number and sending notifications to the app. For example, a confirmation of payment of a ticket or a reminder of an upcoming travel.

Outcome

As a result, Busfor successfully entered the mobile market...

Backend for domain name registrar and hosting provider service

NIC.UA is one of the largest domain name registrar and hosting provider in Ukraine. Previously it was using a monolith server but together with NIC.UA team we have divided this system into backend and frontend parts. Now the service is flexible, scalable and has a smart domain search satisfying clients’ needs.

We were required to:

  • Transfer website to Symfony PHP framework.
  • Change domain search principles.
  • Create a custom admin dashboard for managing website content.
  • Introduce horizontal scaling and continuous integration.
  • Implement websockets for faster search.

MeinFernbus

MeinFernbus is a leading German supplier of transport services in the area of passenger coaches. The company is considered to be a partner and an innovative progenitor of small and medium tourism businesses in Germany. It functions independently of the big tourist corporations.

The company takes care of the consistent use of the brand, network planning, pricing, marketing, sales and distribution, transportation department and customer service, while its regional bus companies are improving effectiveness focusing on high quality standards and Safety.

For 3 years we have participated in the development of a project together with CTO IT-MeinFernbus team.

On-Demand Massage App

We developed an on-demand service for calling the masseur.

The front of the project included interaction design, UI drawing, client mobile application development for Android and iOS, as well as development of applications for receiving orders by the masseur.

In addition, we developed a backend and an API for connecting mobile applications with the server.

KeepSnap for Android and iOS

KeepSnap is a service for photographers. As well as development of the platform itself, the project also involved mobile app development. The goal of the app was to provide KeepSnap users with additional features. The target audience included both photographers and people interested in their services.

We have developed an app from the ground up: created design for iOS and Android, developed API and apps and then published them on Google Play and AppStore.

IsDocIn

The project goal was to create a mobile app for service that helps people to make appointments with doctors. Doctors can set up profiles and receive notifications when somebody has booked an appointment with them.

We created UI for the mobile app used by patients, designed iOS and Android versions and built native apps based on this design.

HuntsPoynt

We have developed API and iOS and Android app for‭ ‬HuntsPoynt,‭ ‬service‭ ‬used by recruiters and job seekers.‭

Nova Poshta — Dashboard

Nova Poshta is leader in the Ukrainian delivery market and driver of its development. The company actively works on the elaboration and improvement of user-friendly online services. Nova Posta and stfalcon.com cooperation was intended to substantially improve the current Personal Dashboard to bring the user experience to a next level.

The tasks we needed to implement in the project:

  • New Personal Dashboard design
  • Web application development
  • Front end integration with the Nova Poshta's API

The front end development was not the easiest task, because at the start of all the works some of the backend functions were partially unavailable. However, the frontend was developed in a way to make changes easy afterwards, with taking into account the future jump from the old API to the fresh one.

UARoads

UARoads is a startup created by stfalcon.com. The quality of Ukrainian roads is far from being good — 95% of all roads are in unsatisfactory condition. Bad road surface increases the risk of traffic accidents and influences car maintenance costs. That’s why in 2013 we have launched our startup for drivers called UAroads.

UARoads service consists of:

  • main website with the map of road quality (front-end)
  • track processing system (back-end)
  • analysis tools (data science)
  • service for rendering maps (tile server)
  • service for finding an optimal route (OSRM)

Thismo - corporate chat

Feedback summary: 

Stfalcon delivered a polished product that’s highly rated on The App Store and Google Play. Users appreciate the app’s intuitive interface and convenient functionalities. After receiving nearly 10,000 downloads in the course of a few months, the platform is poised to continue growing.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of an online veterinary service. We provide an app that allows users to book and meet veterinarians though video calls.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Stfalcon?

While we were able to get veterinary physicians to sign up with us, the success of our business depends on the technological stability of our platform. Therefore, we needed an experienced development firm to create our website, build the mobile app, and integrate relevant third-party applications.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Stfalcon developed our native mobile apps for both iOS and Android. That process involved building a backend infrastructure to support a complex calendar feature. They also implemented an administrative system to facilitate a quick login process for vets. Then, they integrated the platform with third-party software to enable payment and video call functionality. Finally, they built our website using WordPress and included SEO-focused content.

What is the team composition?

They assigned 10–14 people to our account. That team included a project manager, iOS developers, Android developers, QA resources, SEO specialists, and frontend designers.

How did you come to work with Stfalcon?

We found Stfalcon through a third-party company that connects startups with development firms.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent nearly €200,000 (approximately $227,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

Stfalcon’s work took place from April–September 2018. The platform has launched, and we’re continuing to refine the service.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The platform has a 4.9 rating on both The App Store and Google Play. However, most users have given it a perfect score. We almost have 10,000 downloads, so I’d say that Stfalcon did a great job. The product has been well received according to the metrics we track.

How did Stfalcon perform from a project management standpoint?

We’ve had some difficulties with the language barrier at times, but were able to clarify things by writing them out. However, that usually occurs when working with the developers as opposed to the project manager. We mostly communicate via Slack and video calls.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Stfalcon is a great company to hire when launching the first version of a platform. They built a stable product at a fair price. We look forward to using the current build to attract new investors. We’re happy with how they performed.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I recommend that they pay more attention to documentation. They’re a proactive team, but proper preparation can save a lot of time as a project progresses.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the co-owner and CEO of NIC.UA LLC, one of the largest domain name registrar and hosting providers in Ukraine.  

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Stfalcon?

We have hired the Stfalcon team to help us create a brand-new frontend from scratch. They are making the HTML-only design and our in-house designer produced work compatibly with our backend API integration.

What were your goals for this project?

As our number of users increases exponentially, the service should become more flexible and simpler to scale. We specified that it be based on modern technologies so it could handle a huge number of our users. Lastly, we needed to integrate intellectual search into the website to make it easier and faster to find domain names.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found Stfalcon on the internet after considering numerous other teams. They offered a great technology stack and sufficiently experienced developers. We proposed the idea of using a time and materials contract so we could see the results first. Most importantly, our discussions with the sales manager and interview with the team indicated that we have a common vision for the project.

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

Standard admin dashboards have a limited number of functions, so Stfalcon developed a custom version that suits all our needs. We created modules to display in certain parts of the screen and landing pages for discount offers. The flexible dashboard lets our site administrator restructure each page without touching its code.  

To create a smart search option, Stfalcon implemented smart caching for requests and added features common to major search engines like transliteration, synonyms search, and translation. Whether a user searches a domain in Russian or English, it generates examples of domain names that best suit their request in both languages. 

Stfalcon’s developers used WebSockets to quickly aggregate and display domain data.  It conveniently shows users the first results while conducting the rest of the search in the background. The team made it compatible with our API for authentication and orders.

What was the team composition?

Six talented people from Stfalcon worked on our website redesign. Their team included a project manager, three backend developers, a frontend developer, and a QA specialist.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our number of visitors drastically increased right after we launched the redesigned site. The smart search feature has helped us attract many new leads and sell a high number of domains.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Stfalcon's project manager clearly grasped everything we needed to implement on the new version of our website. They gave us useful advice and communicated at a high level. We could contact them at any time to discuss additions. Stfalcon has a very flexible management approach. It was never an issue to make changes or add functionality during development. Their flexibility was very convenient.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Stfalcon is a professional, goal-oriented team.  Their manager works hard to delve deep into your project. They understand what not only you but also your customers need, which is excellent.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

Talk to the team you plan to hire. Even if you don’t have a technical background, ask if they understand your project and have them describe their vision for its realization. 

In our case, all the team members from Stfalcon were interested in our project. They have all demonstrated a desire to perform well and deliver great results.

For what projects/services did your company hire Stfalcon?

We needed help with software development.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to have a fully functional product with a modern design.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Stfalcon was not our first partner for this project. As a small startup with a limited budget, we chose our first outsourcing company because of their low rates. After two months, we were disappointed with the results, so we searched for another development vendor.

I looked for recommendations from my network and got good feedback about Stfalcon. We chose them based on their portfolio. I was happy to see that they’d successfully created several products with thousands of users.

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

Stfalcon designed, developed, configured, and deployed a new client server web application. They created it almost from scratch. When we started working with them, we had just formalized our ideas and created a simple prototype. The Stfalcon team dived deeply into the product and shared lots of brilliant ideas. Since they had extensive experience, they were able to implement best practices.

What was the team composition?

We worked with seven people from their team, including developers, a project manager, a designer, and a QA person.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Stfalcon was a real partner, not just a contractor. They were deeply involved in the project and provided exceptional value. They were not afraid to disagree with us, which resulted in a better product.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

There was very little they could improve. They are an open-minded team of professionals.

I am the owner of a platform for cooking recipes called Cookorama.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Stfalcon?

We wanted to create a search engine for recipes, but it has smoothly evolved into a cooking community. In light of this change, we needed to create a proper platform for our audience.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to create a platform, including a website and mobile applications, where people could easily share and access cooking recipes.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We needed a company experienced in developing new projects for startups who could understand the needs of our market. Stfalcon was the best choice we found when researching. We liked the way their manager and developers communicated with us and how they helped to develop our idea.

Describe the project in detail.

Cookorama is the first social media site for people who love cooking. It's a platform where users can share recipes, rankings of recipes, and discuss cooking. However, it's not limited to reading and writing recipes; we offer an interactive place for sharing experiences, discussing different ways of cooking, and we also hold contests where users can vote for the best advice. The project had to develop in such a way that it was simple for users, but also aesthetically pleasing.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a manager, two developers, a designer and DevOps.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What outcomes or results can you share that demonstrate progress and/or success?
