We had been working with a team in the USA for a year and a half and are proud to finally see DroneInsurance.com launch in July 2018.  We kicked off the project as their sole back end and front end developers, but ended up augmenting their team as they grew their developer head count.

The app allows users to register themselves, their drones & sensors and the coverage they want as and when they fly.  If anything

would happen to their drones, they can also file claims through the app.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Carpit is an automotive startup that makes car maintenance easy for car owners. The app provides access to engine and tyre services at transparent prices. I am the co-founder of the business.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Suria Labs?

We have Suria Labs to help us come up with the initial MVP from design all the way to launch of the beta app.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to create a minimum viable product to validate our business model in the market.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We searched online for various mobile app developers. We selected Suria Labs from the previous projects and their ability to help create apps using the agile development framework.

Describe the project in detail.

I had a meeting with Bjarte to describe the project, he then assembled his team to initiate the initial discovery workshop which lasted for a whole day. We received the project estimates and started working on the project on two week sprints. Every fortnight, we will hold a verification meeting to go over the developments and to plan out the next two week sprint.

What was the team composition?

He had a project coordinator, Sam in constant contact with us. He helped translate our requirements to the project team for the tasks required to complete. The project team consists of usually two developers and a designer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Although I have close to zero experience in tech development, Suria Labs was able to help set us up for our MVP launch. It was shaky for us to embark on a tech business and we learnt alot from the development team.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

At the time of development, my team was also tied up with a corporate exercise but Suria Labs was able to continue with the sprints and roll out the project with minimal delays.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The founders Bjarte and Robert are well experienced in building software solutions. They are able to guide us on the right structure and wireframe for our app. We have sent the codes for audit and the feedback received is usually the codes are clean and there are multiple tests built to ensure good code quality.

Are there any areas for improvement?

It would be better to spend a bit more time on the UI/UX designs and conduct some validations before building the backend. Although it will take up a longer time to build the project, it will reduce the change requests and development budget.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Suria Labs went above and beyond, delivering a quality product and service. Their workflow was efficient. Their adaptability is noteworthy. They’re able to balance various tasks to better a project. Customers can expect a communicative team that’s dedicated and delivers on time and within budget.

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 a startup. It’s a hybrid between a gig economy and neobank platform that acts as a peer-to-peer money payment service. I’m also responsible for the UX.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Suria Labs?

We hired Suria Labs for the development and design for a React Native application.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Suria Labs developed and designed our money payment application using React Native and Ruby on Rails for the backend. They also created our company website. I provided the wireframes while they enhanced the concept.

What is the team composition?

There were about five people on their team.

How did you come to work with Suria Labs?

I had a relationship with someone who used to have a company in Europe and then became a partner with Suria Labs. I visited them, saw what they could do, and then decided to hire them.

How much have you invested with them?

The project cost between $100,000–$250,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The first phase of the project took place between September 2018–March 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Suria Labs exceeded expectations, producing high-quality work. The second stage of the project will begin shortly. We didn’t have a specific system in place to measure metrics, but their team met every deadline we had in place. We also ended up spending lower than our expected budget.

How did Suria Labs perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management style was excellent. They ran an agile process. We communicated frequently and had sprints with reviews weekly.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their ability to pivot and roll with the punches was impressive. I also appreciate their level of communication. They took responsibility for meeting the requirements from the audience, not just following the plan. Their team was excellent at balancing, so the startup got the value and services we wanted. The end users received the value they expected.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their team could do a bit more testing. There were a few bugs we found after launch that we could’ve fixed before. They did take all responsibility.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Go visit their team. Clients shouldn’t see the engagement as a clear outsourcing relationship where they only correspond through email. Suria Labs is an excellent team that can contribute as much value as their clients let them. Let they have a say in the final solution and fully engage in your mission. They want to deliver solutions, not only technology.
