Feedback summary: 

While the project has not yet launched, the sites will save time for the internal team. Syndicode establishes effective project management through communication and collaboration. The team consistently delivers quality results that meet the expectations of the client.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a company that offer different home services to individuals. We have 2 marketplaces, with 2 different target groups. One focuses on young couples/families, and one for elderly. These services differ from cleaners to caretakers. For our cooperation with Syndicode, my position was Project Manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Syndicode?

We wanted 2 custom-made marketplaces platforms, built from scratch.

What were your goals for this project?

With this project, the goal was to attract more users to our website, that would end as paying customers. Furthermore, we wanted a user-friendly platform, that would distinguish from competitors. Syndicode is the pary we chose for, and that helps us integrating all features we want and need in order to reach our goal.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Before choosing for Syndicode, we researched several companies that are experienced with building software /marketplaces. We had several interviews, with 4-5 companies , outside Syndicode. Syndicode was the company that we felt really understood what we wanted ,and had the capability to help us succeed and reach our goal, by being able to built a marketplace from scratch, with every feature we can think of. They also came accross as trustworthy during the interviews.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We offered the team in the beginning of the cooperation a document with our goals we want to reach with the platform and our wishes and needs. The team built the marketplaces from scratch. From the UI/UX design to a working platform.

We had many technical requirements, such as automated invoices and reminders, automated bookings, filters, possibility to choose different services and many more. The team of Syndicode was responsible for all the tecnical features of the platform. Furthermore, the team took care of designing the Jira environment in such way that all tasks were clear for everyone.

What was the team composition?

There have been many developers involved on this project from Syndcode. I believe we have had 2 UI/UX designers, 3 Seniors backend developers, 1 Frontent Senior developer and several junior developers. We also had a QA manager and a Business analist. At the moment we work with 2 BE Seniorrs, 1 junior BE, and 1 FE Senior.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The project is not live yet, so the impact cannot be measured yet. However, we do not hesitate it will have an impact on the time-consuming activities we work with at the moment - these activities are now more automated, which leads to more time on our hands at the office, for more important issues.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We used Slack, Jira and Google Hangouts for communicating with the team from Syndicode. These methods were very useful, as we could share all documents needed, make different teams within the team and also divide the project in tasks and milestones.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The number of employees capable of building any feature from scratch was very impressive to us. Furthermore, the involvement of the CEO was also very appreciated.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We believe the price and time estimation could have been more thoroughly thought of.

How did you select this vendor?

Syndicode was recommended by a trusted collogue, but I have interviewed a number of companies with similar services. Syndicode was very easy to communicate with, had clear responses and recommendations, and came absolutely at the top of the list during our evaluation.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

For the last six months, Syndicode has been providing implementation and maintenance services for my clients with no glitches. 

With each project, they typically establish a timeline for the site implementation along with any clarifying questions. Once we resolve all the details, they develop a WordPress site according to our provided designs and functionality requirements. I then have the ability to review their work to make comments or corrections. After completing the implementation, their team deploys the site to the client’s server and ensures proper functionality.

What was the team composition?

They’ve assigned a project manager and a few developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Having a reliable implementation team I can consistently rely on allows me to offer a much wider set of services to my clients. It also gives me peace of mind that they’re there to take care of implementation, deployment, and maintenance as well as all other dev-related issues.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Communication is always clear, punctual, and reliable. I have a great project manager who communicates with me on almost a daily basis, giving me progress reports on where things are and what parts can be reviewed. From there, I have the option to give comments and make any corrections. They deliver everything on time and on budget.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Syndicode’s work makes me and my company look great. The team is very responsive and responsible. They’re great at communicating issues and coming up with solutions. Having a capable team like Syndicode allows me to focus on design and client management while knowing that all my dev needs will be handled.

No, there’s nothing that I can suggest.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Wecam.co is a marketplace connecting video producers to business clients, including startups, event organizers, marketing companies and so on, that need custom video content. We have a model similar to Upwork, but we focus exclusively on video content and production. I am the founder of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Syndicode?

The company was started one year ago with a simple WordPress website. As we grew and started running campaigns, it became clear that we needed a more complex solution. Unfortunately, we do not have the talent internally to build and transition to a more complex solution. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Syndicode designed and developed our Ruby on Rails website from scratch. They assigned 4 people to our project, which included both designers and developers. I acted as the main contact, and we didn't have a project manager assigned to us by Syndicode.

How did you come to work with Syndicode?

I am originally from Ukraine and wanted to work with a company from the region. A friend recommended Syndicode based on their previous work experience. I also approached another company, but I liked Syndicode's pitch. One week after our Skype call with their chief executive officer, we started the work.

How much have you invested with Syndicode?

The cost of our project with Syndicode has been around $16,000 [15,000 euros].

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Syndicode in May 2016. The site was launched in September, and we entered support mode. We plan on using Syndicode for further development at the end of 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

There are still some user experience improvements we want to make to the site, so the main marketing push for it will only come after this. I do not have any meaningful figures to share now. 

How did Syndicode perform from a project management standpoint?

The process was straightforward. I wanted to maintain daily contact with Syndicode's developers. They worked well as a team. Our backend and frontend developers were involved in design conversations, for example. Whenever Syndicode's team had a question, they called me on Skype. I also received support from Syndicode's founders, who asked for feedback and provided good market knowledge on how I could start quickly. They consulted with me on how we could transition users from the old WordPress website, giving me a feeling of confidence in our expected outcomes.

We used Trello, as well as Excel for tracking work hours. Syndicode has been systematic and transparent in time tracking. They've also shown flexibility; our mockup person was only used when needed, for example.

What did you find most impressive about Syndicode?

I really appreciated Syndicode's responsiveness. Recently, I made a misconfiguration on the website, causing it to go down. Syndicode asked their developers to fix it over the weekend, which I didn't expect to happen. This pretty much sums up my experience with them. Syndicode also cares about code quality.

Are there any areas Syndicode could improve?

The pricing for mockup work has been a bit high, compared to backend development. I also would have appreciated having a discovery phase, in the beginning, helping me, as a client, better onboard. If Syndicode plans to grow, this is something that they should take care of. Otherwise, everything has been fine.

We found Syndicode through another partner, had a couple of interviews, and assigned them a test project. We figured out extremely soon that Syndicode was a very professional group. Their developers have very good communication skills, which is unusual in this space.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Syndicode 1-year ago and have an ongoing relationship that we don't plan to stop.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We usually provide user stories and discuss the project with Syndicode. They are very involved in our work and strive to develop it in the most efficient way, minimizing time and maximizing the quality level. We have a high load on our systems, so it would make no sense to have any inefficient code.

How did Syndicode perform from a project management standpoint?

We are using GitHub, as well as JIRA, for our collaboration with Syndicode.

What did you find most impressive about Syndicode?

Syndicode's communication skills are very good. Whenever they identified an approach that wasn't ideal, Syndicode told us about it in a very friendly way, giving better recommendations. This is how I would want the collaboration to be all the time. We have a partnership with Syndicode.

Are there any areas Syndicode could improve?

It may sound strange, but no.
