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 in charge of development at a car rental company. We rent vehicles to Uber drivers in New York City by the hour.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Techverx?

We licensed an app from another company that wasn’t doing the trick, so we decided to make one on our own.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Techverx made customer apps and an entire backend system. We started with a discovery phase during which we identified our needs and their team priced the job. That phase took between 2–3 months. After we agreed on terms, we started the development and their team built out the products with Ruby on Rails. They built two apps for Apple products, one of which is customer-facing and the other’s lender-facing. Our Android app is also customer-facing. Their team also built a complete backend system for us to have control over rentals. Their team continues to work with new requirements. They make updates, fix bugs, and address support tickets and work to build a complete POS system for customer onboarding.

What is the team composition?

Overall, I’ve interacted with 12 people probably. I sit in on their scrum meetings, so the whole team’s there. On a day to day basis, I communicate with five people.

How did you come to work with Techverx?

I’m not sure how we got in touch with one another.

What is the status of this engagement?

The engagement began in 2018 and we launched the product between April–May 2019. We continue to work together.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We did security analysis and everything looks fine. I can’t speak to the quality of the code but can speak to the quality of the people. Techverx stands behind a product. When they put a product on the table, whether there are bugs or functional challenges, they stand behind it. Their team makes sure to fix any issues and cares about the platform as if it’s their own, which is unique to Techverx. They go the extra mile and don’t leave us hanging. Their team sticks a project out and gets as involved as us.

How did Techverx perform from a project management standpoint?

We use Slack for messaging and Zoom calls for scrum meetings and sprint planning. We rarely use e-mail. We’re still with them, which says a lot about Techverx. They don’t excel in project management but they’re not bad with it so I'm happy with them. We don’t always meet the deadlines, but no project meets deadlines always.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re honest, which isn’t easy to find. Their team stands behind a product as if it’s their own. They’re looking for long-term relationships, so it makes sense that they stand behind the product. Their team’s honest and makes sure that the customer’s happy at the end of the day.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s nothing to share at the moment. They’re good.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be organized and know what you want. If you don’t know what you want or you’re not organized, the project can take longer than expected.

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 founder and president of Actionable Insights.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Techverx?

We were trying to build a searchable database that guides insurance professionals and restoration contractors as it relates to invoicing for flood and fire repair.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Initially, our plan was for a 3,000-page book, but people don’t end up in the restoration industry because they enjoy reading. The information needed to be distilled into bite-sized pieces and had to be instantly delivered for the users. We wanted a searchable website that would be an invoicing standard. We provided the documentation before their team began development.

Along with the invoicing element, users can buy digital assets like gift cards and other swag. They can also register for events where they can buy raffle tickets and donate. We even created our own synthetic currency called insider points. Our service has estimate audit engines named ZORA and Solidifai, which they were pivotal in the development of.

The site was built with a WordPress backend and JavaScript CSS overlays. They also used WooCommerce plug-ins and GitHub to push the code. The platform is about 50–60% customizable.

What is the team composition?

Typically, we’ve worked with four people. But sometimes, roles and accounts changed. In total, I’ve had a relationship with no more than eight individuals. I work directly with the developer and have a project lead.

How did you come to work with Techverx?

I was working with an operation that underperformed. Upon us firing them, we asked to work directly with Techverx, which turned out to be a favorable arrangement.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested about $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement with Techverx started in November 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The website generates income that far exceeds whatever their monthly recurring costs are. The work Techverx has done makes money for our business. A lot of our services are a tad complex, but their team has been working well through all of those in the past three years. The synthetic currency model that was formed seems to be delivering compelling results.

How did Techverx perform from a project management standpoint?

They performed well. We used Trello as our project management tool.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Techverx has been growing, increasing their clientele with businesses bigger than us. That has provided Umar (CEO, Techverx) the space to procure better talent. I felt that, as time went on, I had better and better engineers on the project. Sometimes they were spread a little thin. When I started working with them, they had a team of 10, which is now around 100. So, there are a few growing pains here and there, but they now have a stronger and more experienced staff.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I would’ve liked access to a higher-end engineering talent if I’m willing to pay for it. It might’ve been more efficient to pay more to get more experienced talent, so I want that as an option.
