The platform met expectations and has had a positive impact on the client's business. Tekton Labs' effective communication skills complemented their project management style and stands out from competitors. Commitment and thoroughness are hallmarks of their high-quality work.

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 a digital product owner at a cement production company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenges were you trying to address Tekton Labs?

We hired them for their web development services.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We wanted to develop a platform to help our clients with their business management.

What is the team composition?

We started the engagement with four people but as the project grew, we added more people to the team for a total of nine individuals.

How did you come to work with Tekton Labs?

I had received very good recommendations about them so when we had the bidding process, they were included. What we really liked about them is that they showed a great understanding of our project, had great communication, as well as presented a great and thorough proposal that stood out amongst the others.

How much have you invested in them?

We’ve invested more than $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from October 2019–April 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The quality of their services was great and it had a big impact on our organization. We plan to continue working with them because we really like to see what they're capable of accomplishing in a short time.

How did Tekton Labs perform from a project management standpoint?

We used Trello and Slack for project management. Our communication was fluid, and they always kept us updated. Their project management was better than other agencies we’ve worked with before; they were great at it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I was very impressed with their commitment to the project; that was very important for me. They were always ready to go the extra mile for the good of the project.

Are there any areas they could improve?

At first, it was hard for us to work remotely but we, as a company, were able to adjust and get used to it. I would’ve liked for Tekton Labs to give us a clearer picture of how they handle remote work because we honestly had no idea. They do a great job even when they’re not in the office, but they could explain that better to clients like us that don’t have this kind of experience.

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 am an IT manager at Sky Airline, a regional airline.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Tekton Labs?

The company grew a lot during the last year, so we expanded our services and started collaborating with and selling to government entities. This project was aimed to create a sales portal focused exclusively on these accounts.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We already had a base code on our general website. We worked using Node.js, Jira, repositories, and more. We also implemented new cloud-based production spaces with Tekton Labs.

What is the team composition?

We worked with six people in total: a scrum master, an architecture leader, three developers, and a QA person.

How did you come to work with Tekton Labs?

I had worked with them before while I worked for another company. For this project, the company did an analysis of all the firms in the market. It was a long list. After reviewing all of them, Tekton Labs was the one that I felt was a better fit for the company’s needs. They did a great job and understood the company’s needs very clearly.

When this new project came up in my new job post, I reviewed two companies, as I didn’t have much time. They were among them, and when we consulted them again, I felt like they were up for the challenge and made a great proposal. 

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around $6,500 per sprint.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started around mid-October 2019 and finished around the end of December the same year.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The project was a great success. With the tight schedule we had, no one believed that we could achieve a quality product, but we did. Every part of the development was audited and everything had a great result. We achieved the quality of a project that would normally require around nine months in just two months. Their team is just great.

How did Tekton Labs perform from a project management standpoint?

We had a project manager that was in constant communication. We also had follow-up meetings and used WhatsApp. In general, I think their project management was great. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their commitment and technology skills stood out to me.

Are there any areas they could improve?

At some point, we started having some friction. The deadlines were too tight and we were working non-stop so it was understandable. We started having group dynamics that eased things, and it was all great after that.

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 Sports Venting Inc, an app that allows sports fans to vent about the teams they love and hate.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Tekton Labs?

I relied on Tekton Labs for Android app development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Tekton Labs developed an interactive Android app for me. It’s a microblog—meaning that content posting is restricted to a certain number of characters, like Twitter. Users can post articles, videos, and share any other sports-related media. The backend was hosted on AWS and the app was coded in Java.

What is the team composition?

Maggie (Head of UX/UI) was our project manager, but we were also in touch with Kenneth (Founder). I’m sure there was a larger team involved, as well.

How did you come to work with Tekton Labs?

A tech-savvy partner of mine recommended that I look to South American companies for development services. We shortlisted and interviewed ten different vendors and chose Tekton Labs for their portfolio, pricing, and references.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $53,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The app development began in July 2016 and wrapped up in February 2017. We’re planning on engaging them again for our iOS app, so it’s an ongoing collaboration.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

While we didn’t have the marketing resources to get the app off the ground, they delivered a functional, user-friendly app. Once we have the iOS app and a brand ambassador, we’re positive it’ll gain great traction with users.

How did Tekton Labs perform from a project management standpoint?

They were excellent at meeting deadlines. Whenever we wanted something fixed, they executed it very quickly. They were timely about bug fixes, and their communication was great.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their design skills are stellar. I was very impressed by the look and feel of the app they created.

Are there any areas they could improve?

That’s tough — I would have to nitpick. I really don’t believe I can think of anything.

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 am the CEO at a construction company. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Tekton Labs?

As part of our business model, we offer our clients design and supervision services. Once the design phase is over, we offer a certified master builder who supervises the building processes. This used to be an informal process, so we were looking to develop a platform for this process.  

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Tekton Labs built a platform that allows the master builder to supervise their personnel, oversee the progress of the building, and show our clients the progress.

What is the team composition?

At first, during the discovery phase, there were 3 or 4 people. Since we started the project, we work with a UX/UI developer and around 4–5 more developers.

How did you come to work with Tekton Labs?

We have a long relationship with them — our parent company had done some projects with Tekton Labs in the past and had a great experience with them. So, when we started with the bidding processes, they were among our options. In the end, Tekton Labs offered the best proposal so we chose them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $150,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working by the end of January 2020. The project is still in progress and about to finish. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Everything has been excellent. We’ve met all of our goals and are developing a platform that generates great value to our users. Tekton Labs has been able to understand our needs very clearly, and we’re very happy with their work. 

How did Tekton Labs perform from a project management standpoint?

One of the things I liked the most about working with them is that they have a very clear methodology. It allows us to have great clarity about what we’re going to get. We have daily and weekly meetings where they show all their progress, and they never miss a deadline.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The UX/UI has added great value. It shows that Tekton Labs understands our users perfectly. As for the development, the method they use makes it possible for us to know that we’ll meet every deadline and have the project ready on time. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

We've had a very positive experience. At first, it took them some time to adapt and integrate with our company, and that might have made us lose a couple of days at first. However, they were very open and worked hard to adapt to our ways and that allowed us to get back on track quickly.

We needed help building our platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They build 80% of the code for our platform. Users can create orders for vendors to bring them materials or services. That transaction becomes electronic and it’s traceable. They work in SQL, HTML5, iOS, and Android.

How did Tekton Labs perform from a project management standpoint?

We use Slack and Trello. Initially, we were concerned about the language barrier, but they’ve done a great job of keeping team members that can speak, read, and write in English and Spanish.

What did you find most impressive about them?

When I’ve got a problem that my team members don’t have the knowledge of, they allow them to reach out to other team members to get the right answer. We’re not just left on an island and out of luck. That’s why we prefer hiring them to our own guys because they have a group of people with different skills.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There have been times when we’ve had a team member whose communication wasn’t great, but they remedied it immediately.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Tekton Labs?

When we first started our business with Tekton Labs, it was because we needed quality engineers. At the time, the market was so hard to find the right people through interviews.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Tekton Labs ended up being the right fit for what we needed. They provided as many as 20 resources at one time working on projects with us. We’ve worked on projects that required expertise in Node.js, JavaScript, C#, and more.  

What is the team composition?

Over the years, we’ve worked with over 30 engineers.

How did you come to work with Tekton Labs?

We have a team that looks for potential resources. I’m not exactly sure how they came across them, but I remember the first meeting we had with them. Tekton Labs was extremely professional. We decided on them because even though they’re offshore, they had such a significant presence. Everything was a seamless transition because all of their engineers were available when we needed them.

The great thing about Tekton Labs is that all of their engineers are versed in different languages. We can easily find a fit for any of our needs. Their engineers also can brush up on any service we need in a short amount of time. They’re incredibly professional, not just the engineers but the people behind the scenes as well.

How did Tekton Labs perform from a project management standpoint?

Their entire management process is amazing. The way that they run their business is parallel to how we run ours. Culture is important to both of us. Also, making sure that the engineers can deliver the best quality of code in a happy environment.

Transparency makes working with them so comfortable. It never feels like we’re two separate companies. We’re working towards the same goal. Sometimes, I’ll request more engineers in a short period of time. Their team is quick at finding the perfect candidates. They’re always ready to serve.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their management style is great. They’re transparent about everything they do. They won’t promise something that they can’t deliver on.

Tekton Labs helped us develop custom software focused on making local government meetings more accessible. We took video recordings of local government meetings and put them into the Google Cloud infrastructure so they could be converted into text files and would, therefore, be searchable. 

The team at Tekton Labs helped us develop this software and manage the project. Their team built the initial prototype, proving both front- and backend development in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. They later went on to build out the full product.

What is the team composition?

We worked with four or five members of the Tekton Labs team. The exact number varied at different stages of the project.

How did you come to work with Tekton Labs?

I found them through my network, someone knew the leadership at Tekton Labs and introduced us. I was impressed with their experience but also their project management. I believed they’d be good at executing on this project and appreciated the strategic view they took to it. It wasn’t just about writing lines of code, they connected to the strategy and vision for our venture.

How much have you invested with them?

We have invested between $30,000–$35,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with Tekton Labs in 2019 and everything has been completed for the current stage. We’re continuing to work with them and plan on exploring more ways to do so in the future.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our prototype initiative went so well that we partnered with Tekton Labs for the production version. The first version was a proof to our market that this technology and this solution were possible. They were a great technology partner to make this product come to life.

How did Tekton Labs perform from a project management standpoint?

They adopted the tools we wanted them to, and we appreciated their flexibility. Tekton Labs’ communication is consistent and effective. They were open to our preferences and cadences.

What did you find most impressive about them?

One of the most important things when working with a technology provider is that you can trust them to help you understand that tradeoff decisions between different directions. Tekton Labs gained our trust and helped us understand why every decision was being made.

They explored what different frameworks we might consider as we were defining the architecture and worked through the project management elements with us. It was a very interactive experience, which helped us build that trust. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, they did a wonderful job on the project.

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

BACKGROUND

Could you briefly describe your organization?

Binary Ventures is a digital agency based in Charlotte, [N.C.,] and we specialize in helping startups and small businesses execute their digital needs, from branding and marketing, to custom development. Tekton Labs is one of our strategic partners that we use for technical development. We use a unique blend of onshore and offshore resources.

What is your position?

I’m the managing principal.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

Could you describe the business challenges that you were attempting to address when you first approached Tekton Labs?

The challenge we faced was choosing the right outsourcing partner, especially one that’s offshore. It required a lot of due diligence from our end. We don’t have the technical resources we need to complete our projects, so we knew we’d need a technology partner to delegate those duties to.

 

SOLUTION

Could you describe the scope of this project in greater detail?

It’s been all custom development. They’ve been working with .NET, PHP, iOS and Android. They handle all of the technical builds and we take care of the strategy and creative aspects.

How did you choose Tekton Labs as your solution partner?

We had hired a consultancy that specializes in the matchmaking of offshore developers with companies here in the United States. They were the ones we delivered our requirements and project description to and they then made a number of recommendations. Tekton Labs was one of those recommended companies.

Could you provide a general cost estimate for this particular project?

They’ve cost anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000.

When was this project completed?

We’re in the final stages of testing now for an android and iOS app that they’ve developed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

In terms of results, could you share any statistics, metrics, or user feedback you’ve received that would demonstrate the effectiveness of their work?

I can tell you that our end-users are extremely satisfied with the quality of work delivered. They’ve also been duly impressed by the professionalism and communication exhibited by Tekton. They go the last mile to ensure that they’re on time and on budget, and they provide fixed bid solutions for us. We haven’t been tracking metrics, per se but, anecdotally, our team hasn’t had issue with the viability or quality of anything they’ve built for us. They’re great at maintaining a reasonable schedule, too. I’d venture to say they hit 90 percent of their targets. When they might not make a deadline, they always inform us well in advance.  

When working with Tekton Labs, is there anything you’d consider unique about their approach and/or development methodology that distinguish them from other vendors?

Their proposals are extremely accurate. They really know the development side of things. I’ll tell you that we’ve since signed a joint venture with them, which means we’re now doing all of their front-end design and project management for their North American, and U.K. clients. Our businesses and approaches complement one another very well.

In retrospect, are there areas in which you think Tekton Labs could improve as a service provider?

I really can’t think of anything. We’ve worked to various extents with about seven different offshore solution providers, and Tekton is by and far the best of them.
