Feedback summary: 

Tapptitude's technical capabilities, organization and project management, especially as the scope of one of the projects changed. 

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 digital progressive agency that helps businesses use technology to grow.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Tapptitude?

We’ve partnered with the mobile development specialists at Tapptitude on various projects to build apps.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Tapptitude has provided mobile development for Windows, Android and iOS, and we’ve worked on several projects together. We’ve also referred projects that aren't a good fit for us to them, and we’ve had positive feedback from all of those transfers.

I believe Tapptitude has done concept and design work, testing, launching, marketing, etc., with other clients, but I personally haven’t worked with them in that capacity, so I can't say for sure.

Tapptitude has tackled every problem we’ve encountered, and I can't think of a single example of where we’ve needed to build something, and they’ve said they couldn't do it.

How did you come to work with Tapptitude?

We met them at a mobile development conference. We were working on a specific project we had been given, and we needed their help because they were mobile developers, and we only had web developers. Beyond that, we’ve used them in various roles when we’re either at full capacity or we need some additional help on a certain project.

How much have you invested with Tapptitude?

I would say between $10,000 and $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them about three years ago, in 2013.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

One project we had was building an app to spec that had some cool custom integrations, including a custom ebook reader. From a technical perspective, the project was a total success, but the company had not marketed it at all, not even a banner on their website’s homepage. In the end, the downloads weren’t that good, but it was in no way the fault of the technical developers.

We also did a pretty cool pro bono project. It was an autism therapy app prototype we built for a behavioral therapist. They partnered with us on that, and it was a cool project. Definitely one of the ones that makes you feel good about the world.

How did Tapptitude perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re organized, and they hit deadlines. There was only one instance when the scope of the project changed from the client’s end, and that’s always a difficult situation for a service company. We were able to work that out, and they were reasonable in how they worked it out. We don't work with a lot of subcontractors, because the results tend to be mixed. But Tapptitude is one we’ve gone back to consistently, because they are able to deliver, and we don't have to worry about them not delivering.

What did you find most impressive about Tapptitude?

We have this idea of who we want to work with and that’s people who care. It’s hard quantify that, but you can the people at Tapptitude care. It’s small business, and the founders are involved in every project, which I think is important, yet the company is big enough that it can deliver pretty complex work. I respect how much they care, and that they’ve focused on being mobile specialists. They don't try to reach outside their strengths. A lot of agencies will do everything they can to follow the cash flow. Tapptitude sticks to their guns, and they do it well.

Are there any areas Tapptitude could improve?

This is kind of unfair, but when we first starting working with them, we got to work with their founder who was a great developer, a great programmer and a great guy. As their business has grown, he’s taken more of an overseeing role, which is fair, that’s how we did it too, but it would be great if I could work more directly with him.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Tapptitude a great, creative product. They are coachable, responsive and made good suggestions. However, their project management, while good, could use some improvement.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Varanidea has developed an application called KALiiN. We are an idea-conversion factory, finding ideas and bringing them to life. I am the chief executive officer of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Tapptitude?

We had a complex concept to tackle. Our application has 5 components, which made it hard for most companies to tackle. Since every partner we approached in the US was outsourcing the work, we decided to outsource.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Tapptitude was awarded our primary iOS and Android application build. Our app is a deep machine-learning system with several moving parts. Tapptitude has done a tremendous job regarding UI/UX [user interface/user experience], as well as the complex backend elements.

The concept and was our own, and we had some wireframes laid-out. We visited Tapptitude's team, presenting a detailed plan around what we needed to do. We reached a conclusion around how the work would be done, put milestones in place, and started hacking away at the project in an Agile fashion.

How did you come to work with Tapptitude?

I searched around the world, settled on 5 companies in Romania, narrowed it down to 2, and started a partnership arrangement with Tapptitude. I found that they brought the best of Western culture and European creativeness, with a very good value segment. The team needed to understand some very specific and difficult technical issues. I had 4 interview questions, and Tapptitude passed all 4, providing good feedback around them and delivering a comprehensive suite of services necessary for delivering our app.

How much have you invested with Tapptitude?

The cost of Tapptitude's work has been above $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our first contact with Tapptitude was in July 2015. We started working with them in October 2016. We have since released and improved our product. The second release of our Android application was just today. The new iOS app is rolling out next week. It was delayed because of a bad decision on our part regarding an API [application programming interface].

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Tapptitude has done some wonderful work, which is visible in our apps. Tapptitude could figure out creative solutions involving complex math.

How did Tapptitude perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management was our biggest challenge, because of the time difference and language barrier. By meeting Tapptitude's team and giving them some guidance, we obtained a good cadence. I would estimate that Tapptitude has reached the 90% mark, relative to established US project management standards. There are some things we'd still like them to do differently, but we're quite strict in this regard. I'm overall pleased with Tapptitude's approach. There are some language issues, which is why we rely on chat, but they're very responsive. Tapptitude made a good suggestion at the beginning of our collaboration, which could have saved us 2 months of build time. They became a part of our team, and we found that we needed to listen to Tapptitude's people; they're extremely smart and capable.

What did you find most impressive about Tapptitude?

Tapptitude has done what was promised. They're good and trustworthy people.

Are there any areas Tapptitude could improve?

Tapptitude has been weak on some project management aspects. I would still rate them a 9/10 in this regard, but I have high expectations. I have strived to help them improve, and I appreciate the fact that Tapptitude's team is teachable.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The app received positive feedback on its design. Tapptitude's flexibility and easy collaboration stood out.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

‎FlyCleaners is a dry-cleaning pickup and delivery service for customers in New York City, particularly Manhattan and Brooklyn. I am the CTO and a founder of the company. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Tapptitude?

We have a small team of developers in New York City, which would have taken approximately 2 years to develop an iOS and Android app. We needed to increase our speed.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Tapptitude was tasked with developing the front-end of our Android and iOS apps based on our internally-built APIs. The technologies used were Swift and Java. We were assigned teams of 3 people for each platform, which were reduced when we reached the end of the project. There was a QA person from Tapptitude's team involved in our work, and we also had a design resource available whenever we needed to make readjustments. We handled the final builds and store uploads ourselves.

How did you come to work with Tapptitude?

We put out an RFP [request for proposal] and reviewed around 15 responses. We chose Tapptitude because of their response time and level of interaction. Their pricing was also good, and we were able to develop a good relationship even before starting the work.

How much have you invested with Tapptitude?

The cost of Tapptitude's work was between $50,000 and $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The start date for the development was set for early-January, 2016. The project was supposed to end in April, but we kept making scope changes. Tapptitude finished the development in June, and they've been performing maintenance work for the apps since then. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We're a startup, and this was our first major release to customers. Through it, we've been able to better-align to customer and business needs. The most beneficial part of working with Tapptitude was their flexibility. They were willing to work with us through very vague and undefined scopes. We were able to add features based solely on mockups, working through specs and documentation as we went. I've never worked with a shop that managed to satisfy that path-finding process.

We've received some positive comments on the apps' design. Because of the nature of our business, we tend to receive negative feedback; people tend to be sensitive about their clothes. As far as the work done by Tapptitude goes, the feedback has either been neutral or positive.

How did Tapptitude perform from a project management standpoint?

Tapptitude has been flexible and aligned to our way of working. The collaboration has been very nice.

We've had morning scrum meetings, and kept in touch through email and Slack, sending the necessary information for moving our project forward. At a high level, Tapptitude has assigned people who were technically and business-savvy enough to know how to talk to us, as a client. 

What did you find most impressive about Tapptitude?

Tapptitude is based in Romania, while we're in the US. They seemed to do the best they could to minimize the hassle of our daily communication.

Are there any areas Tapptitude could improve?

The one downside was caused by us not being able to provide the necessary specs to make Tapptitude grasp the complexity of our project. This has made initial estimates be a little off.
