Feedback summary: 

While the platform is awaiting testing, initial feedback on the marketplace has been positive. Systango is full of hardworking and dedicated developers. Their personable approach supplemented their professional management style. They’re communicative and willing to tackle challenges.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of a travel marketplace startup that’s launching in the next few months.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Systango?

I was working with different companies individually but wanted to have a whole development team based in one place.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Systango is developing the front– and backend for a full-stack travel marketplace. It’s now web-based, but we’ll start creating the mobile version as well. There were different travel integrations, and they complete all the design work. They used Skyscanner API, which is an airline API. The frontend was built using Mix.js, and Node.js, Express.js, and MongoDB were used on the backend.

What is the team composition?

We’ve had one project manager since the beginning. Our backend person has switched, and two developers who work on the frontend. There are also team members who assist with marketing.

How did you come to work with Systango?

While we found them through a Google search, I’ve also heard about them from a few other people. After meeting the CEO in London, we hit it off, and I felt confident that they could get the job done.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Systango in May 2018, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Systango did an excellent job with design and implementation. It’s taken a bit longer than planned, but that happens with every project. It’s been great working with Systango, and everything is turning out the way I wanted it to. While we haven’t tested the marketplace yet, we’ve gotten positive initial feedback and are confident it’s going to be fine. Before, I was working with various individuals, and now I can come to one place to see one team where we can sit together in one office, or I can go to where they’re located. It’s made the workflow much more efficient.  

How did Systango perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management style is great, and our assigned project manager is fantastic. We were using Jira but switched to another management tool. Communication is seamless; their team is friendly, welcoming, and direct. I was even invited to go to the CEO’s cousin’s wedding, where I sat with their team, and we went over the plan. They’re available for most of my working hours.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their skilled expertise is strengthened by their willingness to tackle new coding languages. Systango has around 150 flexible employees that have a slow growth model. My experience with their team is more intimate from other development houses I’ve tried working with.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It’s relatively new, but they should increase the marketing side of their business.

Feedback summary: 

The system has yet to launch but has received praise from external stakeholders. Systango Technologies delivered high-quality, well-tested code on time and at excellent value. They provided reliable updates and made themselves accessible throughout the project, making the collaboration seamless.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the development team manager for Glyph.id. We provide software that allows users to better protect and control their data.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Systango Technologies?

We engaged Systango Technologies to build a blockchain data marketplace.

What were your goals for this project?

The software would reinforce our existing application and backend and bring us closer to an MVP.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We received several bids to complete this project. Systango Technologies demonstrated expertise in understanding our architecture and offering recommendations; they also communicated promptly and consistently throughout the bidding process.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We provided Systango Technologies with an overview of our existing architecture and the blockchain’s requirements. They returned with an overview document that outlined their understanding of our needs, potential challenges, and goals. They guided us through their written proposal and recommendations—complete with diagrams and wireframes—over multiple conference calls. Once we agreed on the project’s scope, budget, and hours, Systango Technologies started to build the software.

The team created a designated number of Glyph-specific tokens than we can issue and control as admins. They made a workflow on how to generate crypto wallets for each user and how to import and exchange tokens. Systango Technologies also created transaction rules that we can configure and change as needed. They finished within four weeks and then worked with our development team for testing and integration with our existing app.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a project manager and two developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The software has yet to launch, but having a working blockchain proof of concept on hand gives us much-needed credibility with investors for our second round of funding. We’ve received compliments from advisors, partners, and potential clients on how quickly Systango Technologies had this marketplace built and integrated into our MVP.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Systango Technologies set a high bar for contract management and communication. The team made efforts to be available despite time zone differences and gave frequently progress and challenge updates. They delivered within our agreed-upon timeline and collaborated with our internal dev team seamlessly. From start to finish, Systango Technologies was highly accessible, reliable, and transparent. We communicated through Slack, Google Hangouts, Github, and Jira

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They demonstrated outstanding communication skills, availability, and in-depth expertise. We hope to collaborate again with them in the future.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, we’re highly satisfied with their work.

Feedback summary: 

The professionalism and consistency of Systango Technologies sets them apart from other offshore resources. Communication and reliability are hallmarks of the collaboration, and their developers behave as bone fide members of the internal team.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a CRM software consulting company that integrates various business systems with one another. I'm the founder and director of the business.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Systango Technologies?

Our team is half consultants and half developers, so we needed a reliable source of development team members for custom integrations, apps, and extensions for our clients.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We do a lot of work with Zoho CRM and interact with about 40 different applications. Our company is a qualified Zero developer, so they help us with financial integrations. We also work with a lot of email marketing tools like ActiveCampaign, MailChimp, and Campaign Monitor. Other software includes WooCommerce, Shopify, project management tools, and a variety of custom integrations.

Their breadth of knowledge is really great, and they support PHP coding as well. We have good documentation and process maps set up, and bring them in whenever the scope allows.

What is the team composition?

We have a team of about five, including a project manager, a QA specialist, and other developers. The processes we’ve developed over time are robust and work really well. Whenever possible, we include them in scoping sessions with our clients.

How did you come to work with Systango Technologies?

They were recommended by another partner of ours. We used one of their developers in a trial a few years ago, and that particular developer now acts as a project manager for the rest of the team. We chose them for their straightforward communication and their skill level, and they’ve been able to scale up with us as we grow.

How much have you invested with them?

We spend between $100,000–$150,000 a year on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

The collaboration started in 2016 and has grown since then.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our partnership is hugely successful, and they help us deliver services at a very competitive rate. There is no way we could afford this level of quality or this number of developers in Australia. They allow us to build out our market extensions and give us more options to sell within our market.

How did Systango Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

They do really well. I work very closely with their CEO and the other project managers to make sure our processes are all in place. They work within our software and participate in all our team meetings and daily communication. A few of their developers tell me they feel like full-fledged employees of our company.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their communication and reliability really set them apart. Most offshore resources can’t match their consistency and professionalism. They’re extraordinarily well-organized, and their CEO ensures we have a proper partnership. Whenever she’s in Australia, she reaches out to us. We’ve met a number of times, and our relationship is strong.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Our projects often require quick scaling up or down for the resources we use. If they could increase the flexibility of the people they have available, that would help some of our six-month projects, but that’s the only change I would make.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of SmilePass, a biometric platform as a service that helps businesses and government organizations prove people’s identities.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Systango Technologies?

We had a product concept but wanted to outsource the development to make the actual platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We provided a set of requirements, and Systango Technologies built the platform from scratch. They built the mobile frontend and backend and are currently working on APIs and software development kits (SDKs). They mainly use Java and work with various partners to expand the biometric capabilities. For example, they integrated document matching and voice recognition programs into our platform, which currently focuses mainly on facial recognition. The biometric profiles are held in our backend, and organizations can use that data to verify customers and citizens during transactions and relationships.

What is the team composition?

They provide six team members: a project manager, QA analyst, front- and backend developers for Android and iOS, and architects.

How did you come to work with Systango Technologies?

We did online research and found about six firms. We sent them our requirements and did a procurement process, and Systango Technologies’ proposal stood out the most. They were more expensive than a few others, but they understood our project best, so we hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

We spend between £12,000- £14,000 a month (approximately $15,500–$18,100 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We partnered in December 2017, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They helped develop our product and get it ready for market on time and on budget. Users like its UX/UI and say it’s easy to use and doesn’t require much training.

How did Systango Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

They have good project management skills. We can meet with the business owner whenever needed, and they even offered to fly a project manager over to us, so we could meet face-to-face. They recognize the importance of an effective working relationship, and the communication is as good as it can be with an offshore partner.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re highly skilled in mobile frontend development. Most other partners just do what’s asked, but Systango Technologies challenges us and contributes their own ideas to improve the product.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could make their computer vision and QA supervision and test automation more rigorous and proactive.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Closely analyze your project and make sure everything makes sense before starting a partnership. Learn from their feedback.

Feedback summary: 

The delivered app boasts positive feedback for its ease of use, differentiating the company from its competition. Systango Technologies’ team worked late to deliver on time. They’re an experienced vendor that follows the most recent technologies, producing products that will last in the future.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO and co-founder of a fintech platform. It’s a personal finance app, which we are beginning the launch in the U.K., but it will target India as well for cross-border transactions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Systango Technologies?

We needed help with developing our application.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We engaged with Systango Technologies from the very beginning, specifically for assigning resources for design and UX tasks. They built the entire app for us using React Native and were involved in the design stage, UI/UX, code build, and DevOps.

What is the team composition?

We worked with eight to ten resources and had a dedicated project manager most of the time. At peak capacity, we had three frontend developers and three backend developers on board.

How did you come to work with Systango Technologies?

We wanted a vendor that could build the frontend in React Native, and there are very few companies in India that possessed this skill. Systango Technologies had what we needed; they were a one-stop shop that could tackle everything from UI/UX designs to backend development.

How much have you invested in them?

We invested around $80,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from August 2017–February 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The product is now live. We’ve received great feedback from users regarding the usability of certain features, and we’re doing a lot more than some of the competitors in our market.

Systango Technologies was instrumental in shaping the product’s UX, especially since we’re using a cutting-edge technology that’s constantly evolving. They made sure that all changes were reflected properly in the app. Their DevOps experience was key for us; we needed to be very particular about security, which comes with having a fintech app.

How did Systango Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

There were a couple of challenges, but by and large, they understood what we wanted and were flexible with us. We had a lot of resources working late hours in order to meet our deadlines.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They keep themselves abreast of changing technologies, so we don’t have to worry about staying behind. It’s comforting to know that they aren’t building an obsolete product.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Most of the work they do is with start-ups, and not all start-ups need to employ a project manager. It would be good for their developers to adopt proper internal communication methods and play a slightly more client-facing role.

For what projects/services did your company hire Systango Technologies?

We had a client looking to build a Chinese translation mobile app.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to ensure a streamlined approach to UI/UX and use React Native for development. We needed it delivered within our budget and timeframe.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We made a shortlist on a third-party site to review offers and portfolio. After some interviews through Skype, we determined Systango was the right fit. They had the right experience and approach to our market.

Describe the project in detail.

Systango developed a very systematic approach to ensure ideas accurately translated to milestones and realistic functionalities. They ensured that the project would be within budget and expectations would be met. Then, their team fully developed the translation app with streamlined UX/UI using React Native. 

What was the team composition?

Are there any areas for improvement?

I would suggest a local presence to offer a face for the business as they grow in Australia. Albeit, this is not a major aspect but it would give comfort to potential clients. Apart from this, there is nothing to fault.

Feedback summary: 

The revised MVP has received positive feedback from users and stands out against competitors in its industry. Systango’s high-caliber team members contributed exceptional designs and built a strong relationship with the client.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m founder of a fintech company focused on providing investment guidance for people in the UK.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Systango?

I'd built the first version of my MVP with another agency and they had done a terrible job. We had to almost start from scratch to rebuild it.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Systango rebuilt our MVP. In our initial discussion, we thought that we would take the existing MVP and tweak it slightly. But the Systango team helped me completely rearchitect it. Then they built out the wireframes for the UIUX flow along with the designs.

Systango’s focus has been on designing the entire UIUX for how the app should function, which includes a tight onboarding process. The space we’re in is fairly regulated and requires the user to provide quite a bit of data. We wanted to make this process fun and engaging. I worked with 3-4 Systango team members including one very closely who helped put together the new UIUX. Based on their work, I used an outside specialist to build all the screens in Azure.

We now have an MVP that we can use for testing and market research. Once it’s had enough testing, I can go back to Systango for them to code the HTML for the updated frontend. I plan to build the backend with them as well once I raise money.

What is the team composition?

I worked primarily with a project manager and a designer.

How did you come to work with Systango?

I was in a WeWork coworking space and used to sit next to Systango. I got to know their founder through casual conversation and we talked about my challenges.

I had two options at the time. I had another vendor from when I initially sourced firms for my first MVP. I could have gone back to them. But having gotten to know their founder and the work they do, I decided to go with Systango.

How much have you invested with them?

Around 3000£.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in August 2017 and its ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

If I compare the initial and second versions of the MVP, there is a real gulf in terms of the feedback I’ve received regarding the quality of the design. The general feedback from most people that have engaged with it has been very positive in terms of the onboard and the UX flow. The design they came up with is great. Because I’m in a space that can be fairly boring and the apps all look the same, with the same design and UIUX, it feels very different from what is out there.

How did Systango perform from a project management standpoint?

Most of the work was done remotely from their India office. The gentleman who helps run Systango from London also assisted. He helped steer the project in the right direction and helped with the UX design and the UX flow.

Communication was fairly good because I was working closely with the guy here in London who was then driving the project manager as well as the designer. We created a Slack channel that the whole team was on. I’d also have direct Skype chats with the designer as well as the project manager. In some instances, I’d go straight to the designer because I’ve built up a very good relationship with the team. Because some of the team sits a couple floors away from me, it’s easy to engage with anyone in the team if I need it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The man they have in London plays an important role in driving the quality of work for the rest of the team. He’s very good at UX design. He’s something of the fulcrum of the work that gets produced.

Their design is also at quite a high standard compared to some of the other companies I’ve engaged with. For the amount I paid, the quality of the design I got was exceptionally high, probably some of the highest that I’ve come across.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Quality of work seems driven by certain key players in the company. It may be that for Systango to scale they will need more people of a similar caliber to those, who can then be in charge of their client relationships. They need to be sure they have people of high caliber to sit in front of the client, that really know startups, really know design, really know UX, and can help in those regards.

Feedback summary: 

The final product launched within the accelerated timeframe, reaching 25,000 downloads. Systango Technologies' impressive management, high-quality deliverables, and disciplined workflow make the partnership rewarding. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the CTO at Edge Tech Labs, which designs and manufactures consumer and enterprise electronics. Our products include a smartphone breathalyzer, low-power environmental sensors, and a guitar teaching accessory. Additionally, each of these products is delivered with a cloud solution, including full web backend and additional geo services. I'm responsible for defining requirements; evaluating technologies, prototype solutions, and data structures; and working with developers to plan, execute, and test full-scale deployments.

How did you come to work with Systango?

I started working with an engineer from Systango in October of 2014. I found him on a freelancer site working mainly in Python and Django web development. As the project grew, we realized we needed some changes to the database and more frontend design experience. The engineer pointed me to his agency that offers all of the resources that we need. After I evaluated Systango engineers compared to the rest of the competition, it made a lot of sense to move all of our development to a single vendor. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Systango?

Our company was initially funded by about 3,000 pre-orders of our first product, DrinkMate, via Kickstarter. We positioned our product as the lowest-cost breathalyzer on the market. With the fixed costs of materials, tooling, and finding factories and manufacturing partners, this did not leave a lot of time for the planning of the final apps. We originally had a part-time Android developer, but many drawbacks and knowledge gaps caused severe delays, which impacted critical app functions. When we moved into developing for iOS, there was no knowledge in our company for interacting with our devices from an app, so we needed outside expertise.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

DrinkMate was was notoriously difficult because the apps relied on a data connection between the phone and the peripheral device. The engineering of the iOS app included a massive list of Apple-based certifications and specifications that needed to be followed. The Systango team willingly undertook this challenge and, through trial and error, and achieved a robust, working solution.

For other projects, they have assisted with initial design concepts all the way up to the completed product, Systango is instrumental in planning, prototyping, scheduling, iterating, and ultimately delivering our final products.

What is the team dynamic?

In my first startup, we had a designer and a database engineer. Then, I met their CTO at the time, and we developed a good working relationship. At that point, we had from 3 to 5 members working on this project. My current company provided a dedicated Android resource and an iOS resource. Now, Systango's new CTO is even better. 

How much have you invested with them?

Since the beginning of working with them, I have invested over $200,000. The initial DrinkMate project cost between $25,000 and $40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working Systango on the DrinkMate project from July 2015 to June 2016. We still partner with them on other projects.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The downloads of the app are limited because of the hardware. We have 11,700 registered users on our profile and about 25,000 devices in the wild. So, there have been at least 25,000 downloads. On Android, we can track this, but iOS doesn't publish the numbers.

How did Systango perform from a project management standpoint?

Our biggest communication tool is Git. We can view the work that has been done over the course of the day, week, or month and can communicate the state of the projects. About 85% of our communication happens via email, and we have calls 3 times a week. We have a great relationship with Systango and have met in-person multiple times to discuss strategies and further our business relationship.

What did you find most impressive about them?

As a startup, we have a lean team, and a good portion of our development is driven by consumer feedback. Whenever we have a new set of requests or a new plan for improving features and functions, Systango is able to break down detailed tasks and assign work to capable professionals.

We are working on a new project called Fret Zealot, and we're getting hardware produced now. The team in India has the necessary protocols, so, even though they've never touched a piece of this hardware before, they can deliver an app that can operate properly. They excel in terms of discipline and procedure.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The time difference between our company's location and India is a constant challenge. I would also like to have a Slack channel that I could subscribe to.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

After the beta release, the app attracted positive reviews from the initial testing group due to its attractive UX/UI and improving performance. Systango’s proactive workflow, deep technical understanding, and close-knit team environment continue to impress. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of FeelShare. We integrate with companies like Spotify and Apple Music, and we aim to provide streamers with more innovative user experiences. We let users share music with their friends and participate in a community of people who stream music. There are 3–5 of us on the core team, and Systango worked on the development of our app. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Systango?

We started working with them shortly after realizing we needed a prototype and an MVP. I didn’t know a lot about app projects or working in an Agile way. I just wanted to build a complete product, but they advised me to go step-by-step. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I had a few advisors, but nobody on my team was a developer. I started meeting with the founder of Systango well before we started working together. Once I felt she really understood my product and agreed to work on it, I left everything to her. They were our technology partner for 2 years.

First, Systango created a prototype. When we got funding because of that prototype, they expanded it on a month-by-month basis. They put down biweekly sprint plans, so every Monday we’d have a set of objectives and defined tasks for each developer. By the end of the 2 weeks and the end of the sprint, we’d have a retrospective meeting to assess what we’d accomplished. They kept me involved, which I appreciated. Since I’m not a techie, they were able to educate me a bit. They taught me how to use JIRA and Slack, so it was an interesting learning experience for me.

We had a few big releases every month or so. The project did well, and we got a larger amount of funding. Systango also secured an equity stake in my company because we had established trust.

The app allows anyone to broadcast music in real-time for people across the globe. If you’re listening to a certain artist, people across the world can tune into exactly what you’re streaming. At the same time, the app allows you to broadcast video and your voice. It’s like you can be your own radio host and your stream will go to people across the world. It fully plugs into Spotify and adds a radio element into the existing streaming ecosystem. It’s essentially an add-on to Spotify and similar services.

We created the prototype for both iOS and Android. I did the design, and Systango handled the backend. Once we did the full build, I wanted some better designs, so I asked them to take over the design as well as the development. We’re actually going back into a large phase of development. We did a lot of beta-testing, and we took down the app for a short time as we did some research. We’re going to redeploy it after refinements.

Systango offered helpful suggestions. Through the app, I want to foster regular use. Their insights on gamification specifically really helped me, and they pointed me to some great books. Systango went the extra mile to help me learn through the process. That really set them apart from our other providers.

How did you come to work with Systango?

For this project specifically, I put a job posting on Upwork, and somebody reached out to me from their team. Then, because I lived in London, the founder offered to advise me as a startup owner. She recognized that I was young, and even though I didn’t have much money to put into it, she wanted to help. By the time the idea got traction, we already had an established relationship.

How much have you invested with Systango?

I spent around $180,000–$200,000. The price, from what I understand, is not very expensive.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together around January of 2015, and our collaboration is ongoing. We took a break to raise more money. Now that we have, we’re starting another round of development. We got a lot of feedback when we had the app in stores before, which we’ll incorporate in the next phase. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We launched the app as a beta release. We put it in the App Store, but we only had a specific group of users at a university giving feedback, instead of having a gigantic marketing campaign. We were pretty fluid in the sense that we didn’t build too much, so we could test whatever we did build. The feedback from customer testimonials has gotten better with each passing month.

Systango met my expectations on all fronts. The code is incredibly solid. The user experience has gotten better over time and runs seamlessly. We’ve tried to be responsive to feedback.  

We got a great product for a great price. Throughout the entire development, I felt like I had my own team, so I was pretty satisfied. Over the years, I also changed my requirements quite a bit, but they didn’t increase the bill.

How did Systango perform from a project management standpoint?

Everything went fairly well. They taught me how to use JIRA. We had spreadsheets, master docs, spend plans, and daily scrums that I’d get involved whenever I wanted to. They taught me a lot about Agile project management and really adhered to deadlines. Once, we missed a sprint, and the team was incredibly apologetic. They took it really seriously

In addition to JIRA, we had daily calls and used Slack at all times. We used Trello as well for UX planning. I also used Pivotal Tracker for the software, to-do list, and quality assurance.

What did you find most impressive about Systango?

I’ve worked with other companies who also used agencies. Building products for startups is quite a different ballgame than just building a product for an established company. Systango’s understanding of MVPs and scrum management was a key differentiator. They also advised me how to spend my limited budget. Everyone who’s seen the code base thinks it’s incredibly robust. They used an advanced framework and tech stack.

Are there any areas Systango could improve?

Nothing specifically comes to mind. I was pretty satisfied with the experience.
