Feedback summary: 

So far, Techugo has completed a prototype that’s garnered praise for the design and layout during beta testing. The team is enjoyable to collaborate with and has established a strong partnership. Their comprehensive range of knowledge, expertise, and services met all the clients’ needs.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the co-founder of My Carbs, which is a health and fitness mobile app that helps users adopt a healthier lifestyle. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Techugo?

I was trying to develop a mobile app. After reaching out to several software developers and even considering freelancers, I ended up choosing Techugo. As a professional company, they seemed trustworthy and like the best fit. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

My co-founder and I described the initial idea, and Techugo built the app from scratch. With versions for iPhone and Android, it's available on the App Store and Google Play. They created a marketing site with our address and a brief summary of the product. Based on their thoughtful questions, they understood our goals very well. As we got organized, they prepared the milestones and plan for our process. Throughout development, they contributed useful recommendations to improve our app and website. They also helped with content writing and gave us legal and marketing advice. 

The app has five main features. A cookbook includes well designed and professional looking healthy recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Along with cooking instructions, it lists the ingredients, nutritional value, and ratings. A calorie counter calculates a meal’s nutritional information when users encode the ingredients they use. The exercise section has a BMI calculator to show how many calories users should consume and burn each day. It also has detailed instructions about how to perform exercises. The only paid premium feature connects users with coaches, trainers, nutritionists, dieticians, therapists, and consultants for health and fitness. The last module includes settings, educational materials, and contact information for our available careers. Notifications send reminders to cook a specific dish or try a new exercise. 

What is the team composition? 

An account manager represents me at Techugo. I tell him what I want to accomplish, and he finds the right person to delegate the task to. The team includes designers, I.T. engineers, backend developers, the operations manager, or finance and accounts. I know the company has 50–100 employees, but I've only spoken to about five of them personally. 

How did you come to work with Techugo?

When we came up with the seed idea, we were in a less technologically advanced region than our current location in Toronto. I wasn't comfortable going forward with any of the first companies I talked to. Once in Canada, I spoke to 3–4 companies who gave quotes that were much too expensive for a starting estimate. 

I used Clutch to research other options online. Based on the insights and rankings, I spoke to 10 companies in India, a region known for its IT sector. I'm familiar with the culture, which made our interactions easy. After I interviewed them one by one, I chose Techugo. 

How much have you invested with them?

I spent about $15,000–$20,000. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We've been working together since January 2018. The app is not live yet. We're adjusting a few features and hope to go live next month. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I showed a prototype of the app to several people to request their input and advice. Everyone who has seen it has given us great feedback so far. They like the organization and design, which I consider a key indicator. I haven't found many issues in the app, and they've fixed the few ones I’ve pointed out. 

How did Techugo perform from a project management standpoint?

Techugo was available 24/7. Whenever I emailed or texted them with a question, they got right back to me. Since we're in different time zones and continents, I found that especially impressive. 

At the beginning when we started, we mapped out a plan. We started the first milestone, reviewed it once complete, and then moved on to the next one until we completed all five. We've reached the first beta version. After we get to the second version, we will hopefully go live. We use Skype to communicate along with emails and reports. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

That's a good question. It's honestly difficult to choose just one. I really like the ideas they give me. They have an excellent method of thinking things through to find a better solution. I really appreciated that they offer all the services we need as a one-stop shop, even legal advice. They support me with all my needs. I just message them, and the account manager or COO will respond. Techugo is pleasant, friendly, and we have a great working relationship. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

I'm not sure there's anything they could do differently. Having a project management tool might be beneficial, but our current system works well, so I don't think we need to change anything.

Introduce your business and what you do there.

What challenge were you trying to address with Techugo?

I needed mobile app development for my fitness platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’ve given the app to all my users so they can track their success. So far, we’ve received positive feedback about the UI/UX; we’ve heard that it looks nice.

How did Techugo perform from a project management standpoint?

My project manager gave me the solutions I needed. He always provided updates, which were especially important if the process was slightly delayed. They used a project management tool that allowed me to check the progress of their work.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I was happy with their services. They stuck to the timeframe, delivering the application in three or four months. Their best quality was the speed with which they responded to my questions.

We hired Techugo to design and develop our app for iOS and Android devices.

What were your goals for this project?

Our main goal was to have a simple and user-friendly app with optimized performance.

Development is still in the testing phase, but the app has been bug-free so far. Their success to date, along with stand-out project management and transparent progress reports, has opened the door to additional work. Techugo combines a persuasive first impression with the expertise to back it up.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a marketing and communication manager for a leading professional services company. I’m responsible for one of our product wings, so I’m in charge of a number of applications, one of which is being developed by Techugo.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Techugo?

We were working on a chat application through which we can also track employees’ work. We have both day- and night shifts, and we were tracking employees manually. The challenge was in tracking them during night shifts.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The iOS and Android app will be used by our employees for chatting, sharing documents, and video and audio calling. We’re not considering a web version at the moment, but we might during the second phase. We prepared all our documents based on the concept we had of the app, which we then gave to Techugo.

Based on our RFP, they created a document detailing their understanding of the project and its functionalities, which we then iterated on until it met our standards. Afterward, we jumped into the analysis phase where they created app and admin panel wireframes. They then divided each development task into milestones, including application testing. Additionally, they fixed all bugs and created the app’s logo.

One-to-one, real-time chatting is the app’s main feature. Previously, if an employee wanted to send a document to someone, they had to write an entire email for it. Currently, they can attach and send documents similarly to WhatsApp, but they'll soon be able to track what documents they’ve sent to whom, and at what date and time, easily. 

What is the team composition?

Techugo assigned a team of seven to eight people, including two iOS developers, two Android developers, a backend developer, a tester, and a designer.

How did you come to work with Techugo?

There are a lot of companies operating in the app development field, so it was difficult for us to select a good partner. I shared RFP documents with a number of companies and interviewed a number of salespeople about their technical teams. I found Techugo through their website, had a discussion with their sales and technical teams, and found them suitable for the application.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost of their work has been $300,000–$350,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working with Techugo since mid-December 2017. We’re currently in the testing phase, so we’ll be launching it soon.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We hardly found any bugs while testing the application, and we’ve tested it on a number of devices. Techugo provided a good team and I’m considering handing them the rest of the project as well. We’ll be launching the app soon, so I’m happy to see that the project is on track.

How did Techugo perform from a project management standpoint?

They are very good in terms of project management. They use Zoho as a project management tool, which I’ve found to be very good. They update everything on a daily basis, so I haven’t encountered any difficulties in this area.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are very flexible and transparent. During previous projects I’ve worked on, I would typically get updates from the development team on the 15th or 30th of the month. In Techugo’s case, I was notified about the work being done on a daily basis, and they completed all the work by the end of the week. We’ve had to make certain scope changes, and they happy about it. They make small changes right away and make suggestions about how we should approach bigger ones.

The iOS and Android development have been excellent. Most IT providers are good in terms of sales pitching, and I did find Techugo’s pitch to be good, but they really stand out with regards to their technical competency.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There aren’t any. They need to maintain the same level of performance.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Anyone thinking of getting an application developed using Techugo should create their own documentation, but also ask the team to create project documentation. They are able to provide suggestions and feedback on the client’s particular idea. They don’t simply take projects; they put effort into them as well.

Feedback summary: 

Techugo successfully delivered a high-quality product per requirements, producing significant savings in time and money in contrast to not outsourcing the project. Their team stood firm in executing the product with its intended vision, quickly mastering an understanding of their goal.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of ChatKazam. We’re a startup that builds and develops software for the web. Our primary product right now is a chat and social media app.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Techugo?

We were looking for rapid deployment and a company that was able to develop a product in a relatively short timeframe. They had to have the technical expertise to develop our vision for the app that is relatively complex. Cost consideration was an issue for us as well.

We decided to completely outsource the first phase, and we will be working with our internal team for the second phase.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We started off with conversations about our requirements for further definition of what we expected and what we wanted it to look like. From those requirements, they developed mock-ups to give us an idea of their interpretation of our requirements, which we further refined. We came to an agreement on how we wanted things to work and the process.

Throughout the process, they developed more mock-ups and screenshots for us to be able to get a full picture. We worked back and forth with them to specify the requirements before starting the coding and development. Once those things started, we had intermediate development phases when we were able to take a look at and test the app. The app is developed for both iOS and Android. 

One of the primary features is that the app is built around the user's location; it follows them and knows where they are at any time. When they use the social media portion of it or they are in a new location where they are looking up specific activities, the app automatically brings up points of interest related to their location. Being able to drive and pick up photos and videos posted from a particular area was a challenge, but it turned out really well.

Phase one was completed and approved, and then the team here wanted to do some additional add-ons before releasing it. They are currently working on phase two which is in its final stages of development. We anticipate that it will be done in the coming weeks.

What is the team composition?

There have been about 30 people that worked on it including project managers, coordinators, coders, testers, and designers.

How did you come to work with Techugo?

We did some research online and we were also given suggestions. We requested bids from five different companies and asked for their input and an idea of what they thought they could do. Techugo came out on top, not only for the quality of their bid but also for the grasp they had on what we were looking for right away.

How much have you invested in them?

We will have spent around $30,000 once we are done.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them in October 2017 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

There was a cost advantage using Techugo compared to what it would have cost us to develop the app in-house. From our estimates, we saved approximately $100,000.

On the delivery side, we cut four months off what we would have expected from our normal delivery time, and we also got a fairly quick turnaround from them.

How did Techugo perform from a project management standpoint?

We used Skype and MS Project for the delivery and for our schedule. We also used text messaging.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their willingness to get it right stood out throughout the process. They made sure that our vision is what came out in the app, and they worked diligently to deliver it.

For a new app that has some different and unique features that other apps don’t, there were times when requirements changed and shifted. They handled things well and have always been willing to make the little changes that we have asked for with speed and professionalism.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They have a great process and their team stays in contact with us. They have done a great job with the services they have provided for us.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

People should go out there and get quotes and bids. For us, Techugo shined brightly with their professionalism. The quality of material that they provided and their quotation process were excellent, and it showed when they started doing the work. Techugo provides very high quality.

Feedback summary: 

Techugo suggested native app development rather than hybrid, ultimately benefiting the user experience and yielding positive results during beta testing. Their intelligent team’s supportive approach, availability, and dedication to finding solutions established trust.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a relationship officer for one of the leading national banks in India.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Techugo?

As a bank, we’re not very familiar with technology. We have a huge database, and everyone was worried about security. We needed a partner to develop a mobile application for us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed our native iOS and Android apps. They slowly completed the app and delivered the whole product.

We started with a basic banking app where users can log into their account and see their account status. Users can also see their transaction details and change their ID and passwords. In India, the government introduced a GST [Good & Services Tax] policy for e-commerce, so we had Techugo take care of all the taxes and payments for our app as well.

No other banks are providing something like this right now. We have a different website for tax payments in India, and there's no app in the market yet. We are the first ones providing such a feature on the mobile side.

What is the team composition?

I had a few meetings with their business team, and they involved their technical heads.

How did you come to work with Techugo?

We did an internet search for vendors in Delhi so that we would be able to commute and observe what their development offices were like. We pitched to a few companies in India and visited them. Visiting Techugo was a good experience for us. My two in-house technical resources suggested we use them, and then I suggested it to my company. The solution they provided intrigued us, so we decided to use them.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $300,000–$400,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in July 2015, and the app was released in November 2017. We now have a monthly agreement with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Everything went perfectly. We wanted hybrid apps, but Techugo is the only company that suggested we go native because of the benefits. This altered the cost, but the users are really happy, and the user experience was improved.

We started beta testing with 1,000 internal users, and we received really good feedback. There were crashes and bugs, but the quality and features we’ve expanded in a short period of time has been totally impressive.

I understand that there might be some technical issues with launching a new product. They have always provided us with solutions for issues, and there’s never been a situation where they said something wasn’t fixable. The product we have now is far better than what we expected.

How did Techugo perform from a project management standpoint?

The development process was very streamlined and systematic. They incorporated milestones into the budget, and everything was divided into those few features and delivered first. 

They were always available, even though it wasn’t in the contract that they had to be. They were always responsive in case we had an emergency. Everything was consistently delivered on time. We communicated via Skype, and I also had the option of using WhatsApp, phone calls, or emails.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re intelligent, happy people. Whenever my technical team or I needed them, they were always there for us.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I am really happy with the experience.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Before looking for a technical partner, clients should always consider the type of work and people they want to work with. The best part about Techugo is that they are getting returning business more often than new business. In today’s world, getting returning business means that people have established trust. We’ve gone through Techugo’s case studies, and 80% of their business is returning clients. That gives me confidence that we can trust them.

Feedback summary: 

Devoid of bugs and crashes, the app has saved money on resources, and improved organization and workflow. Effective collaboration exemplified the project manager’s comprehensive support and availability. A transparent milestone plan indicated timelines and corresponding billing.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the manager in charge of an IT company’s largest projects. We develop and outsource mobile app design.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Techugo?

Our organization needed a vendor to develop an enterprise application to store all of our organization’s data pertinent to employees and appointments. We'd tried this project unsuccessfully with other companies in the past.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Techugo built an application from scratch for iOS and Android. Appointment information includes schedule date and exact type, while various reminders help us track our commitments. Aggregated employee data, including their responsibilities, joining date, and salary, help improve oversight. It’s exclusively used internally, by our own employees.

After we detailed our needs, they provided a corresponding document to confirm that we were on the same page. They designed and sent us wireframes for the design. Upon approval, they created a milestone plan that laid out the exact work they'd perform. Deadlines included the corresponding billing information.

How did you come to work with Techugo?

I delegated our search for a mobile app vendor to one of my employees, who narrowed the choice to five companies. After I talked to their corresponding representatives, we finalized our engagement with Techugo. I chose them based on their ideas and ability to understand our exact needs, as well as their available add-ons. As a plus, they were very helpful and suggested ways we could improve as a company.

How much have you invested with them?

The bandwidth of our expenses was between $100,000-$115,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The timeframe has been approximately five to seven months, starting in June 2017. The app is almost done, but we're still going through some of the add-ons. I’m planning to use Techugo again if we need additional work.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app was delivered 15 days ago and is completely built. Right now, we don't have any bugs or crashes in our application. It hasn’t been out very long, however, and we hope it continues at this level of functionality in the future.

Our company has branches all over the world, which made management very difficult for us. Techugo has made it much easier to review files, see employee profiles, and oversee exactly what’s going on. The best part is being able to check specific upcoming appointments.

How did Techugo perform from a project management standpoint?

An effective management style preempted any problems. I connected with them via Skype or e-mail, while my employees took any direct calls. I often have to take calls at the night, due to the nature of my work. Our assigned project manager was cooperative and accommodating. If we had any issues, he was available 24/7.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I was most impressed by their level of knowledge and expertise. Their delivery method was excellent. They gave us useful suggestions and were great at communicating.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I recommend Techugo highly because they make a great partner. On the development side, I understand that software bugs are inevitable. This only becomes problematic when a vendor is unable to resolve them. Excellent management skills made them proficient at troubleshooting.

Techugo’s team created a well-functioning, easy-to-use mobile application. They stuck to the budget and their enthusiasm was impressive, allowing for a successful partnership and a successful mobile application.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the owner of an app that serves as an easy way to find events around your area with an intent to bring communities together. With an “automatic check-in,” the app makes it easy to decide which event to attend.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Techugo?

I needed to develop and design an easy-to-use mobile application that looked good.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Techugo did the complete development and design of the application. We started with a milestone plan; they knocked this out quickly and it made very easy to determine which functionalities we were going to implement. Then, they worked on the design. I love the design of our project because it is easy on the eye, organized, and unique.

Next, we started the development, which included five milestones. We covered a wide range of features and functionalities. One key feature we find unique is the "automatic check in." This function allows the user to "officially" join an event by crossing a "geofence" that each event possesses. 

After the development, we tested the app in a simulated world. With great results from the testing, we launched in the Google Play and Apple stores. Techugo was able to overcome many obstacles and bugs in a timely manner.

How did you come to work with Techugo?

I found Techugo through AppFutura. I chose them because their business head was very welcoming and very helpful to a beginner in this particular field.

How much have you invested with them?

$11,000 - $15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started in June 2017 and development ended in the middle of September 2017. We continue to implement new functions every few months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Even though the business is starting off relatively slow, members from Techugo and I believe that the app looks and functions very well. Despite the number of users we have currently, we have high hopes for the app.

How did Techugo perform from a project management standpoint?

Techugo is great at sticking to an affordable budget, however, we didn’t finish as soon as I would’ve liked. Communication within the company can be improved as well.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The enthusiasm from their business head is outstanding. He is the only reason why I chose this company and he brings great hope my company as well.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I found myself saying the same thing to a few different workers on separate occasions. Improved communication within the company would speed up development and business sales.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work on the Wi-Fi expert team for a telecommunications company providing Wi-Fi hotspot services to Indian universities. Our users connect to our network for free during the first 30 minutes, after which they can pay accordingly. We also provide solutions to hotels.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Techugo?

We have multiple servers and we needed the ability to track their statuses and usage.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Techugo developed an iOS app through which we can login to our VPN and, from there, see which servers are currently running and what their current utilization is. We can also perform testing and see alarms for any issue. We can live-track the alarms through the app. The app can also be used to monitor customer payments and to see how many people are using the network on a free and paid basis. There are other analytics for our network available within the app.

The app was developed using Java and PHP. We aren’t looking to develop an Android version at the moment.

How did you come to work with Techugo?

My company was already working with them when I joined. Techugo was referred to us by another company who had used their support services.

How much have you invested with them?

The total cost of their work has been 6-7 million Indian rupees. [$90,000 to $110,000]

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Techugo around February 2017, and are continuing to use them for any issues we encounter, on a ticket-by-ticket basis.

We have not finished installing our network in all universities. In the future, we plan to expand the billing capabilities of the app for hotels, but this is only in the discussion phase at the moment. We plan to contact Techugo again for further development.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

There were some issues with the app in the starting phase since it was new for both of our teams. At first, we were not able to connect to our VPN. After three to four months, almost everything was fixed. We still have issues with alarms not going off, but they will be solved. We have an SLA (service-level agreement) in place with Techugo, and they work according to our tickets.

How did Techugo perform from a project management standpoint?

Techugo was professional and helpful in solving any problems we had when we contacted them and they resolved any issue within 24 hours. We have a management portal in place through which we can assign tickets.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have a very good response time, compared to the last company we’ve used. Techugo responded to any issues we had, and I can appreciate them for this.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could increase the level of support for our tickets.

Feedback summary: 

Despite a change in project management halfway through the project, Techugo was accommodating in seamlessly handing the project over to another team member. Their team is well-versed and experienced in various areas, and they managed and executed the project flexibly and reliably.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a family-owned publishing company leading in the field of law publishing. I’m the third generation in the family. I deal with a product called SCC Online, which is a legal research database. It’s a repository with cases, digest notes, and articles—a search engine for legal research. We own the database and the engine.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Techugo?

We wanted to expand to mobile, so we needed someone to develop an iOS application for us. I had a developer who was working on my Android application, and he was also willing to work on iOS, but he was too busy for the project, so I had to look for someone else.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They offered us end-to-end development for our mobile application. There were certain services we didn’t sign up for, such as the backend development, because we own our search engine and want to create our own backend. We also have our own designer, so we didn’t need their design services. Techugo was doing all the execution on the app besides those two pieces.

They created the frontend of the application. They took our design and made it a functioning app, integrated our APIs, and got the app production ready. They used Swift 3 to develop the app.

The main feature of the application is that it scours our database and returns relevant documents. It can also look up status logs for the user, and push legal news notifications from our blog. It’s similar to how the Wikipedia app works.

This application is only for iOS, but it works on iPhone and iPad as well. We have our own Android developers who’ve been working on the Android application. They will hand the app over to me and I will launch it myself.

What is the team dynamic?

We only work directly with a project coordinator, but they have 3-4 people working on the app. There’s one dedicated developer, one dedicated tester, and one dedicated project coordinator, as well as some rotating assets.

How did you come to work with Techugo?

I found them through a reference; a friend of mine had worked with them on an application in the past. I set up a meeting with them and liked what they were doing.

How much have you invested with them?

We have spent 600,000 Indian Rupees. [$10,000 USD]

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in August 2017, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app is still in development, so I don’t have any metrics yet. But, we’ve been following a milestone plan and everything has been on time.

We divided the app into 4 major milestones. We’re done with milestone two and we’re currently working on milestone three, and the work I’ve gotten has been good so far. It’s mostly free of bugs because there’s a bug tester on their team as well.

In my experience, when I’m working with a developer on such a niche product, I find that the developer is often confused about the product itself and there are a lot of bugs. In this particular case, they’ve been using my web and Android app to understand how things are supposed to work. I think that’s why I’ve been getting a bug-free experience.

How did Techugo perform from a project management standpoint?

They were very accommodating in terms of the budget. We initially started off with a much higher budget but were able to work out places where we could cut costs. We already had a designer on board who was doing the design for Android, and Techugo was willing to work with that. That was flexible of them and it helped manage the cost. We only needed a developer and they were willing to provide just that service. They didn’t try to push more on us than we needed.

We did have a hiccup or two at first with the project manager they had allocated to the project. We had to have the person changed after the first milestone; they were very open to that. That project manager stayed on and helped hand over to the next project manager. When we started working with the new person, that was a great experience. The first person wasn’t well-suited for our industry or product.

All of our internal teams were on Slack and Techugo was willing to integrate with us there. We are in the same area, so we meet once or twice a week if we have to, at their office or our office. We sit together and talk about the deliverables and see how much they’ve done. I give them my change requests and they work on them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have a lot of people in-house. If the dedicated resource on my project can’t do something, they have a backup. They have people skilled in different things. In my case, we used a SOAP API which the iOS developer wasn’t comfortable with, but they had someone else who was. They put that person on the project temporarily to keep it going. Because they have so many skillsets, when we hit a road block, we get past it quickly.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They are very responsive to problems and it’s been going well.
