The Review
Feedback summary: 

Still in development, their work has been well-received by key stakeholders. Syntx’s ability to adapt to and communicate about ever-evolving specifications helps make their code relatively bug-free. Turning constructive feedback into implementable, on-time deliverables are hallmarks of their work.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm a programmer for California Lutheran University, which is a private college in Southern California. I work in the IT Services Department. We’re a small shop so I do a little bit of everything.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Syntx? 

We’re building a messaging platform to expand and unify the different ways to reach our students. We created the backend of the messaging platform to relieve the user of the burden of maintaining lists. The backend system will query our core information systems for different populations or audiences. Once we have the system curated, different audiences will be available to authorized users. For instance, a resident hall assistant can be authorized to communicate with all the residents in their dorm. We needed help with developing a UI that would enable people to interact with our backend system.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Syntx focuses on ReactJS programming and writing code. We’d made several false starts with other vendors, which left us with was a mishmash of code. The old code was ReactJS in theory, but the developers didn't follow best practices or a normal development process. The resulting code wasn't stable, usable, or deployable.

Syntx is collaborating with us on the UI creation and implementation. I personally wrote the backend in the data model with an API that could support various system integrations or a UI. We came in with an open mind in that we would implement endpoints and accessibility points that were either most convenient, most usable, saved us, or led to a better user experience.

What is the team composition?

We work directly with JP (founder and CEO, Syntx). We’re aware that he pulls in additional resources as needed, but he's our primary point of contact. I know he’s brought on a couple of people to do UI design mockups. 

How did you come to work with Syntx? 

We started this project with other vendors, but it was a dismal failure. The project went over budget and grossly over time. We heard about Syntx through Robert Half International. I called and connected with JP. He was well-spoken and communicative, so we gave it a go. 

What is the status of this engagement? 

We started working together in November 2018, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Thanks to their work, the code now functions as it should. The expectations of what we should be able to do hold true. It’s a well-structured, well-thought-out, and disciplined code base. That leads to the sustainability and the maintainability of our system, which gives tremendous value to the project. It's not haphazard. This is code that's engineered to suit our purpose. I believe that this messaging platform is going to save a lot of time—and increase the effectiveness of our communication—once it deploys.

How did Syntx perform from a project management standpoint? 

JP’s performance is superlative. He understands what his abilities are. It's been a positive, working relationship. He communicates better than most vendors. It’s a luxury to work with just one person as opposed to trying to manage communication across a distributed team. If we have any question or uncertainty, he's always available to us.

The solution hasn’t launched yet, but that’s not their fault. It's been an evolving requirements list on our end. We're actually working, establishing, and drawing a line for launch. That's definitely not a negative strike against them because we've had a difficult time restricting our feature set. There's been a lot of scope creep, of which we are responsible.

What did you find most impressive about them? 

Their communication is extremely effective. As contrasted with the other vendors, JP is always listening, participating in the conversation, understanding, and interacting. We can have a terse conversation that’s still productive about a new feature or function. There's not a lot of back and forth. As a result of those fast conversations, issues get resolved quickly.

JP gets it. He listens well, and he lets me know when he doesn't understand something. We may not always agree, but he's very positive and cognizant that we're the customer. Productive communication requires both parties to understand each other. We’ve been successful in hearing what the other is saying. 

Are there any areas they could improve? 

No, not really. We don't always agree, but JP takes criticism well. He’s adaptable and maintains a positive momentum. We're pushing to get something done. So while it's not all roses, I really like working with him. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers? 

My advice is more general for working with any third party resources. Focus on the structure of your project. Establish reasonable milestones and hold yourself accountable to scope creep. Our experience with Syntx has been very positive. We're progressing in the right direction.

After conducting extensive interviews with internal stakeholders, Syntx developed a highly-customized Salesforce CRM to oversee business operations. It automatically drew from spreadsheets to generate reports.

Feedback summary: 

The new integration streamlined internal processes, providing end-to-end reporting on finance, properties, and employee productivity. Syntx took the time to fully assess the situation, which enabled them to best tailor the system. They managed their expectations well and met all deadlines.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there. 

I’m the chief of staff for a property management company. We’re a residential real estate fund that purchases properties and renovates them for resale.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Syntx

We used to manage our operations using an internal system that faced several limitations. Because it couldn’t draw data directly from our spreadsheets, managing our business was a time-consuming, partially manual process. Not to mention, there were information gaps in our team’s productivity.

We reached out to Syntx to develop a custom Salesforce CRM that would help us streamline our business operations. Our goals were to better report on our metrics and encourage more accountability and transparency within our team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

Initially, Syntx gathered our business and technical requirements to scope out the project. They assessed our current system, interviewed our team to identify missing functionalities, and came up with a list of features based on our needs.

From there, they built a highly-tailored Salesforce integration with a streamlined checks and balances system. We now had a comprehensive overview of all of our operations, from property details and financial information to our internal resources.

Syntx structured the architecture to make it easier for our managers to oversee their employees’ workflows. The system would draw data from our spreadsheets, track each individual’s task speed, and generate detailed reports on their productivity.

What is the team composition? 

I worked directly with their founder, who served as our main point of contact. He was particularly involved during the preliminary information/requirements gathering stages. He also assigned a Salesforce developer to handle the integration.

What is the status of this engagement? 

Their work lasted from September–November 2018.
 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The new integration has allowed for more robust end-to-end reporting on our entire business operation. We now feel confident that we’re buying the right properties and hitting the proper ROIs. If there’s an issue, we’re able to catch it early on, which prevents us from incurring costly delays.

We’ve also improved our efficiency, and our employees are more accountable for their tasks. Managers can see exactly what their teams do every day by monitoring our progress queues and gauging the timeline. Since speed and accuracy are key in our business, having a reliable tracking system has positively impacted our bottom line.

How did Syntx perform from a project management standpoint?

We coordinated using Basecamp, which let us see all of the resources on their team and ours. This made it easier to keep track of their communication rather than sifting through email chains or having unnecessary meetings.

I also appreciated that they gave us realistic timelines. In IT, it can be hard to pinpoint exactly how long things will take, but Syntx stuck to every milestone and built in time to incorporate our changes. We never felt like they’d over promised anything.

What did you find most impressive about them? 

Having worked with multiple IT firms over the years, I’ve noticed that developers tend to favor the most current, best-of-the-best technology available. However, they don’t always stop to consider if that’s right for the business. The end users might not know how to operate the technology, and it wouldn’t suit the company’s process.

In contrast, Syntx stood out because they really took our needs into consideration. Their team understood that the technology had to be intuitive enough for our employees while still remaining flexible. Sometimes, challenges will come up in our operations, and we’ll have to do unconventional workarounds. In those cases, it’s imperative to have a tailored system that can handle that.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not that I can think of. We were very happy with the engagement.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It’s important to come into the project what a clear idea of what you want. But if you’re having trouble articulating that, Syntx can help you. They’re honest people who aren’t trying to nickel and dime you nor give unrealistic expectations.

I’m the director of owner relations at RealJoy Vacations, a vacation rental company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Syntx?

We needed help with our Salesforce integration.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Syntx gathered social security numbers, addresses, and property information from our owners, and put the data into Salesforce. Next, they set up processes to automate tasks and reminders within the software. The team also helped with a DocuSign integration.

What is the team composition?

I worked with JP (Founder & CEO).

How did you come to work with Syntx?

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We received 1,200-1,800 monthly emails through Salesforce. The software saved us a significant amount of time. Now, our entire department can answer questions easily because each communication is attached to a specific property in our system. Anyone on our team could work through an ongoing email chain with ease.

How did Syntx perform from a project management standpoint?

JP was awesome; I relied on his knowledge and management skills. We held regular online meetings and shared screens while discussing issues. Our team sent information on spreadsheets that his team integrated that data into Salesforce. Otherwise, we communicated via email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team was responsive and reliable. They delivered on their promises and always communicated scheduling concerns in an upfront manner.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I can’t think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

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

Though it isn’t complete yet, our internal teams are thrilled with the concept and layout so far. We’ve received feedback on its usability and uniqueness. The product is solid and looks attractive with a finished logo.

How did Syntx perform from a project management standpoint?

I have a direct line of communication with JP about any concerns or questions I have. The team is highly responsive to my needs and are transparent about their approach. We use Basecamp and InVision to manage the project and everyone remains informed on the process through those platforms. They are on top of my requests and understand the specific results I’m looking for.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Syntx provides transparency throughout the project—they keep me updated on everything important. Any surprises or issues are immediately addressed. Additionally, their response time is outstanding.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s nothing they could do better—I’m pleased with their work.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Don’t be afraid to tell Syntx if you’re not entirely satisfied with an option they present. They are motivated to produce work the customer fully approves of.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the technical director of a full-service interactive agency in Los Angeles.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Syntx?

To complete a project for a third-party client of ours, we required an external partner to help us move a large data processing application away from Redis and into Postgres.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The data included in the project was comprised of player and team scores for particular mobile games. Our client aggregated those scores through Kibana into large JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) files. We had to process those files into a database, where they were filtered and cleaned up to resemble a leaderboard—a process that required a custom API.

What is the team composition?

I worked directly with JP (CEO, Syntx) and a producer.

How did you come to work with Syntx?

I met JP through Discord, a React-based channel. He instilled a lot of confidence in me that he could accomplish what we needed.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our project spanned August–October 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve received encouraging feedback from our client. Syntx’s work met all of our expectations and all of our client’s specifications.

How did Syntx perform from a project management standpoint?

I communicated well with JP. He was very prompt, very organized. We’d have weekly goal meetings with some direction from the client, and JP and I would meet on Slack or on Discord. We tracked everything through GitHub.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciated having access to the CEO. And JP himself is very no-nonsense and direct about the skill sets and services he could offer. He was straightforward in what the project goals were and how they would be accomplished.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. It was refreshing how well and how smoothly our engagement went.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

With any kind of similar project, it’s valuable to have a team member on your side who has a degree of technical knowledge that can assist with the hiring process.
