Feedback summary: 

The first country implementation has gone live with the new web portal and apps, and gradually, the new technologies will be provided to more users. With flexibility and on-time delivery, this team delivers strong technical experience and abilities. They are working to improve their project management as needed.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

All insurance companies have a back-office arm. We provide various backend support services like roadside, travel, and health insurance to the customers. I was a consulting CIO for the India operation. Then I became a regional program manager for a very ambitious initiative for the group.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechAhead?

We wanted a good, long-term development partner. We wanted a technically enabled partner who could develop a digital platform for us that included mobile apps and a backend web portal.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

TechAhead developed our digital platform for us for one of our businesses. They gave us a few apps to meet our business requirements. Then we wanted to have a lot of backend to support those apps. Over a period of 2 years, we have also developed a web portal which shares to the frontend mobile apps. It’s a full digital model for one our business models to digitalize manual processes into a digital platform. The apps are in iOS and Android and are mainly native apps.

We provide roadside assistance services in a digital model where you can use digital GPRS [General Packet Radio Service] location-based services to identify the fastest and most effective support model for the customers. The portal is LAMP [Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP] technologies.

What is the team dynamic?

We have a dedicated team working for us within the company. I interacted closely with the delivery head/project manager, and I also communicate with the resources dedicated to us. It’s important to know their capabilities, monitor their tasks closely, and to track their services and the agreed scope of work. They had a resource pool of PHP resources, iOS developers, UI developers, QA, as well as an Android development team. There were 8-9 resources engaged on average across all these platforms.

How did you come to work with TechAhead?

We had a very detailed evaluation process, and TechAhead met most of our requirements. They focused on mobile apps, mobility, and digital technology. We wanted a company that was purely focused on this. They were also small, nimble, and flexible in terms of working in a different order to suit our requirements. They were rated highly and showed applicable experience.

How much have you invested with them?

We have invested $200,000 per year.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in October 2015, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s too early to have metrics. We’ve gone live with the first country. It’s a regional initiative, so we’re going live gradually with other countries. There will be at least 100+ business users within 1 country who extend the service to their customers. The number of users in the system has been more than 500. If we have multiple countries, there would be 500–700 or more business users who extend the service to their customers per coountry. There are more customers on the portal side.

How did TechAhead perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re good technology-oriented people, but formal project management is something that they could improve on. It’s not bad, but it could be improved. We have a sprint type of project management. We give requirements in sprints, and they deliver either a sole version or a new version of the platform. It’s a combination of waterfall and Agile methodology. They can ramp up quickly, and they’re flexible in their resourcing. If we need more iOS or more Android developers, we get those skills whenever we need them.

The project managers need more experience and continuity. We’ve had a change of project managers 2 times in the last 2 years.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are good with technology. They deliver on time and are flexible.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They should have more of a consulting approach. They need to improve their project management skills. We have driven them very closely as a business from a project management perspective. The expectation is that they will become a more consultant-based organization rather than order takers. They need more formality in their processes. They also need to improve their UI skills.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They have good technical skills and the newest technologies. The company can ramp up depending on the requirements of the customers. On the other side, they need close supervision. Continuous engagement with the delivery personnel is important.

For what reason(s) did your company hire TechAhead?

They are extremely professional and the best in their work. I would say they are incredibly communicative and timely. The time and cost estimates they gave us were very accurate and the best part is that they were actually able to deliver on their promises.

We did research and contacted various app development companies and after discussing our project and possible approaches, we felt very confident that they’d be able to deliver what we needed.

Feedback summary: 

Minimal bugs have been found in the apps during beta testing. TechAhead is professional, communicative, and fast at development. They are immediately responsive and met all set deadlines.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder of Whizooh, which is an early stage startup aiming to build a problem-solving game that measures current mental performance.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechAhead?

We used TechAhead to build a mobile app for our startup. The original challenge was building the app itself and testing it to make sure all the settings were accurate in measuring mental performance. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

As the founder, I had designed the test/game and written all the questions and rules – then engaged TechAhead to build the mobile app. They designed and built a native mobile app for iOS and Android. 

How did you come to work with TechAhead?

We chose TechAhead because it was clear that they would provide a higher quality app with fees that were within our budget. I had contacted various tech service companies but I chose TechAhead because they seemed to offer the best package for native mobile applications. We were considering cheaper firms that would have offered hybrid technology but were convinced that a native application was best – and TechAhead seemed to offer the best quality development at a competitive cost. 

How much have you invested with them?

It’s been around $10,000. 

What is the status of this engagement?

This project is ongoing, but a first version was developed in July 2017. It took around 6 weeks to complete.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We are currently beta testing the app, but so far the app works smoothly and has had minimal bugs. We are hoping to launch an MVP very soon after further development with TechAhead. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their team is very professional, communicative, and fast. We would definitely recommend TechAhead. They built a world-class app for us at an affordable price. The team was always available and worked fast to deliver a quick launch. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not at all, I am a first-time entrepreneur but I was really satisfied with the services offered by TechAhead. They guided me through the process brilliantly.

Feedback summary: 

Within a week of launching, the solution attracted over 40 registered tattoo studios, who have shared their excitement about using the platform. TechAhead’s user-friendly designs, reasonable pricing, and around-the-clock availability continue to impress. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of Tattoo Planet, a social network for tattoo shops, artists, and anyone interested in the tattoo world. It brings everyone together. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechAhead?

I had the basics of the app already, but it wasn’t complete. I was using another team and tried to launch the app, but I wasn’t satisfied. I wanted to find a new provider after I saw my friend’s app that TechAhead built, which was amazing. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

When I started working with TechAhead, I was satisfied to the point that we released the first version. When I met them, the app was 5% done, but it’s now 30% done. The app is not completed yet because we are working through new versions.

The app is available for iOS currently and will be built for Android in the future. I work with TechAhead for most of the week. I have meetings with them, so I know them well by now.

TechAhead assigned 3 resources for this project: a designer, a backend developer, and someone who’s working on the app. When things need to be done by a certain time, they add people to get the job done. They’re a great, hard-working team.

What features did they work on?

There were a lot of requirements. Mostly, we’re building mapping and live-messaging features where users can communicate and share photos. Users can search the map for nearby shops and artists registered on the app. They can post pictures and videos to their profiles, manage scheduling, and choose a specific artist to contact. TechAhead also made a consent form from scratch, which I’m very happy with.

Once users select an artist to do their tattoo, they can schedule an appointment through the app. They can choose a specific artist at a shop and see their profiles and the work they’ve done. The consent form can be filled out in the app, which makes appointments easy. When you arrive at the appointment, the preliminary steps are done, so you don’t waste time waiting, and the artist doesn’t waste time writing the consent forms by hand.

How did you come to work with TechAhead?

A friend referred TechAhead to me after showing me his app that they’d made.

How much have you invested with TechAhead?

We have spent $30,000 with them so far. The pricing is unbelievable.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in March 2017, and the project is ongoing. It’s an endless project. We will continue to keep building and fixing bugs. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

TechAhead does amazing work. I’m proud to work with them, and I’m so happy that I met them. People are downloading the app, but it only launched a week ago, so I don’t have any metrics yet. We have over 40 shops registered, and some major tattoo shops and artists want to work with us, which is a great success. People are very interested in and excited about the product and told us they’ve been waiting for something like this to happen.

How did TechAhead perform from a project management standpoint?

A manager goes through all the tasks that need to be done based on our schedule. I’m amazed that they’re awake at certain times to get the job done. We use Slack and Skype for communication. We get daily updates, send messages and photos, and connect to every person who’s working on the project. The team notifies me about what’s been done and what’s in the pipeline.  

What did you find most impressive about TechAhead?

They have great UX skills and made the app as user-friendly as possible. We didn’t have any major challenges, but they did everything I asked. TechAhead found a solution for every request.

Are there any areas TechAhead could improve?

I haven’t noticed any areas where they can improve. They’re already an accomplished company, and their professional team can work on any project.

As the product moves into beta testing, industry users have shared overwhelmingly positive feedback about the solution’s capabilities and streamlined navigation. TechAhead’s skilled design processes, high-level execution, and competitive pricing continue to expand opportunities. 

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

I am the founder of a company that simplifies construction industry communications and reporting. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with TechAhead?

I wanted to build a full website and mobile application software that was interconnected and used cloud services to store images. Through user inputs via the mobile application and the website, customers will be able to create a report each day through the software. I needed help with UX/UI design, coding the entire platform, and building administrative management capabilities.

Construction professionals have to complete a job site report each day about safety issues, weather, and anything that happened on the job site. They also have to update the entry pictures and text to explain what happened on the job site. Typically, this used to be done by hand, but we wanted to create a solution where construction workers could use their mobile phone or tablet throughout the day to take pictures and let the app compile a report to simplify the process. 

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

TechAhead built a native Android and iOS app as well as our website in a simultaneous process. They’ve assigned 2 teams to work on our project. As we went through the different versions, they’ve become similar and really feel like the same app. TechAhead is building an admin panel for the backend of the website to manage all the customers as well as a client-side website. I know they’re using HTML and Java but not sure beyond that.

On our website, there’s a frontend that’s for marketing. TechAhead designed that part and are building it out. Their design is so gorgeous it blew my mind. Then, users are able to log in and create reports using all the inputs on the website. We’re building a whole section that lets users customize how the reports look. Making that feature has been pretty complicated.

Users can also pull up their old reports, and the app will be able to store images in a photo gallery. TechAhead had great ideas for all those designs and really helped me through that process.

I’ve got an almost fully functional app and website already. At this point, we’re just fine-tuning things.

How did you come to work with TechAhead?

I vetted about 10 companies in the United States as well as 10 international companies. Two or 3 of those were Clutch reviews, including TechAhead. After talking to different companies, TechAhead was at the top of our list. They had a good price point. It wasn’t the lowest price point, but I wanted to choose a firm that could properly execute my vision. I looked into some of the apps that TechAhead had built in the past, and they’d actually created reporting inputs on a mobile device. They also had a construction app with a ton of different inputs to monitor different things. I felt confident that they’d be able to execute the project properly. I felt comfortable working with their price point, and it gave me a little extra budget if I needed to work on the design and stuff like that. They’re really skilled in their designs and provide impressive work.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in March 2017, and the work is ongoing. We'll continue to work with TechAhead to add features and improve this product. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

I actually used to work for a company that had a mobile construction app, so I have a list of people who’ll help me beta test. I’ve asked a few of them who work in the industry to go through the mobile application and I’ve gotten extremely good feedback from them. As far as the functionality goes, I figured I had a good grasp on what customers need, but they’ve been really impressed with the design. The app is really easy to navigate and looks clean. I have to give TechAhead almost 100% of the credit for that because I had the framework laid out, but I had no idea how to make it look.

TechAhead has exceeded my expectations on this project. They have been great at taking my vision and making it a reality.

How did TechAhead perform from a project management standpoint?

I’ve worked closely with 2 people at TechAhead, and they’ve really understood my needs and executed on a high level. They made sure that an experienced project manager was available for my project as well. That was advantageous because he was familiar with the construction industry. I also work with a lead developer coordinator.

We have a phone call every week and email 3–4 times every week. We also use Skype. They send me the credentials to test the application and the website. They’ve been easy to communicate with, which surprised me. I haven’t worked with an international team before, so I was a little worried about language barriers, but it’s been a breeze.

What distinguishes TechAhead from other providers?

TechAhead provides everything I need and exceeded my expectations with their suggestions and designs. The great communication between our teams has led to solid service and a good understanding of the project. I would highly recommend TechAhead to anyone in need of a website or mobile app.

Is there anything TechAhead could have improved or done differently?

No.

Feedback summary: 

The apps have been received positively, with roughly 70,000 downloads per app. TechAhead was a well-rounded development partner with expertise in multiple fields, from analytics to machine learning.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a startup in the education apps business, developing products for kids in first to fifth grades. We have a set of 10 apps that TechAhead is helping us build. They help kids learn science through gamification, so the overall idea is not to stress them with difficult manuals and to make kids enjoy learning.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechAhead?

TechAhead has been our technology partner from the start.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

TechAhead helped us create the full technology stack, consisting of our iOS phone and tablet apps for all five grades, both free and paid versions. They have also helped us on the backend with analytics, building a notifications framework, and so on. We handle customer support ourselves.

How did you come to work with TechAhead?

I visited Clutch.co, as well as a few other sites, found some companies, and spoke to their salespeople. We asked TechAhead and two other vendors each helped us with the initial prototyping process, and TechAhead's prototype was the best. 

How much have you invested with TechAhead?

The cost of TechAhead's work has been under $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with TechAhead 12-14 months ago. The initial two-month period was dedicated to prototype development. They are still our partner, but the amount of work has decreased now that 80-90% of the work is done.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We initially contacted TechAhead for the development of a single app, but we engaged them for more and more work. They eventually delivered almost all10 apps. Our core business is dependent on the mobile area, and we wouldn't exist without these apps. TechAhead has definitely helped us be successful.

The apps have a few hundred thousand downloads. We see around 15,000 downloads for each app, per month, with a total of around 70,000 per item.

What did you find most impressive about TechAhead?

Initially, I was skeptical of working with TechAhead, but they have a good team of developers, and it seems that they are a good company with full-stack capabilities. After reviewing TechAhead's initial work, we found that they could also build and manage our backend well. Their members know their job well, and have competencies outside of the mobility part, in terms of analytics, notification systems, machine learning, and so on.

Are there any areas TechAhead could improve?

TechAhead could improve in terms of timelines.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with TechAhead?

The mobility business has changed dramatically in the last few years. When engaging a provider, customers should consider whether they're a full-stack developer, or can only work as a mobile partner. The partner should be able to do everything, as far as the product is concerned. I feel that TechAhead was able to meet all our needs.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechAhead?

At FitChirp, we were trying to create a proactive health community where individuals can source proactive health information easily while collaborating with health professionals and other health-driven individuals from around the world.

I had developed all the designs and flows, then TechAhead strategized and organized the strategy of the completion of the apps. We kept in weekly phone communication. If more was needed, it was done.

How did you come to work with TechAhead?

We found TechAhead through numerous searches and investigating mobile app development companies on the web. Through a series of discussions, we determined TechAhead was the best fit for us among the companies we short-listed based on the work they did in the past and our conversations with them.

We have spent between $10,000 and $50,000.

Feedback summary: 

TechAhead delivered highly functional apps that are successful in the marketplace. Everything is available in the app stores, and TechAhead comes highly recommended.

BACKGROUND

My company works in the education domain. We provide enterprise solutions to schools, which help them bring efficiency in the operations and help them take decisions pertaining to the teaching and learning outcomes.

I'm one of the co-founders of my company, and I take care of the sales and servicing aspect of business in the Middle East Asia and North Africa region. I'm based out of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

TechAhead developed mobile apps, which helped the schools improve the communication between the school and the parent community. It facilitated multiple advantages to the teachers to record student attendance, capture anecdotal records, and communicate with parents.

Similarly, it allowed the parents to have instant access to the teachers and staff of the school. The parents had a complete view of the attainment and progress of their child. They could have a clear view of the topics being taught along with the learning outcomes.

SOLUTION

We had a complex solution already running for schools. With the advent of mobile tech, it was imperative for us to have a robust mobile-based app to compliment what we already had as a browser-based application.

We looked out for mobile app development company on Google, and we initially considered three companies. Based on the reviews of TechAhead and our visit and interaction with the team at their development center in Noida, we were convinced about their ability to develop a successful mobile app around the existing browser-based application.

The team sat with our project managers, understood the complete flow came up with wireframes, workflows, and ultimately the product. The entire task was completed in a time span of six calendar months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

The team at TechAhead has been fantastic in the support given to us. They worked diligently to ensure that the app was ready in time and within the budget.

I would happily recommend TechAhead to anyone who needs to work with a trustworthy company. They have the ability to understand the requirement and deliver the solution, in spite of the multiple complexities that are involved. The apps are live on Apple App Store and Google Play Store, and we are very happy with them.
