The tool arrived on time and impressed the client and its customers, leading to more sales. Tkxel delivered a high-quality product thanks to their technical expertise and constant communication. Regular updates and a clear understanding of the project enabled a smooth workflow.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CTO at a professional car wash production company headquartered in Augsburg, Germany. Our company has about 200 employees and we serve corporate clients in Europe, Asia and North America. I oversee our digital products and vendor our relationships.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Tkxel?

Our company is focused on mostly hardware driven business solutions. But as automation becomes a bigger point in society we also must move on in terms of software. As we do not have in-house software engineer team, we had to outsource our development to keep pace with market change.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to create a product extension with a higher value for our customers to increase customer loyalty. So we needed an operational safety on the one hand and a user friendly interface on the other.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

TkXel was recommended to us by a trusted cooperation partner.

Describe the project in detail.

Once we selected TikXel, we had a series of calls to present and discuss our goals and objectives. Within the first three weeks, we received mockups and 2 initial designs for our customer application, which was perfectly matched with our CI.

After a few iterations and discussions with our customer support and head of sales, we finalized the necessary functions and provided feedback on how we wanted the rest of the site to look. The vendor even visited us in Germany for the first live testing.

What was the team composition?

Initially we were assigned a project manager to support us and serve as the main point of contact throughout the project. I normally spoke with the project manager but also had the contact details of one frontend and one backend developer. I was made aware that there are in total 7 people working on our project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Within 5 months, our new application was finally ready to use and we had the chance to present it in front of big clients of ours. They instantly loved the application and ordered the necessary hardware for their car wash machines to keep the software running.

Throughout the process we also had many feedback and testing sessions to make sure that we are on the right track with our application.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The project manager that we were assigned was super easy to communicate with and provided us with frequent updates. We used Slack, Jira & Github for all the communication and skyped at least once per week. The cooperation was a real success: We had the chance to focus and communicate our hardware solutions which were supplemented by the software from TkXel.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was really impressed by the professional competence TkXel had about Application development, user experience and practical understanding of our problem. We learned much more than we thought we possibly could.

We've worked with other developers in the past, but this was a particularly collaborative and positive experience. As soon as we need another application, we will definitely come back to TkXel!

Are there any areas for improvement?

We were very satisfied with their work. Even if it would be great to short down the timeline it was an absolutely great, collaborative work which ended up in an incredible product.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Project Manager for the Ministry Development Framework (known simply as MD), an initiative designed to scaffold the support and development of Ministry Leaders across the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Australia and New Zealand.

Within these territories there are over 700 churches with a membership of over 61,000, more than 50 schools serving over 16,000 students and more than 10 Aged Care facilities. This combined ministry is overseen by more than 600 Ministry leaders.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Tkxel?

We partnered with TkXel to develop an online reporting system, and a process to help our teams review and develop the competencies of our Leaders.

What were your goals for this project?

Our ministry leaders work with a high degree of autonomy, in demanding environments, which makes self awareness and development difficult. We had developed a review process which we was being done manually which was taking valuable time away from our senior staff.

Through the MD project, we wanted to automate the Review, Evaluation and Development Planning processes to bring about efficiencies, and also to ensure an error free and transparent mechanism.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

TkXel had already worked our South Pacific Division team, and we received a very positive report about them and their work. On this recommendation, and a competitive pricing structure we made the decision to use Tkxel for our project.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Initially we had a discovery call with one of TkXel’s account executives, and then TkXel provided us with a discovery workshop which helped us outline the project requirements and milestones. Once the requirements were finalized, they initiated the development process. After deployment, TkXel also provided us with ongoing support & maintenance services.

The scope of the project included the development of an online reporting system, and a process to help our teams review and develop the competencies of our Leaders. Before this, we could only manage a simple review process at irregular intervals. The MD portal has helped our employees to submit their reports online, and to identify strengths and areas for growth using data summaries and charted results. This has benefited our Ministry Leaders and our Senior Management staff to gain valuable insights into the work and competencies of our leaders - both individually and as teams.

What was the team composition?

One Project Manager, three Developers, one QA specialist and one UI/UX designer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Our goal with this project was to ensure a seamless and transparent competency review system and the application developed by TkXel helped us achieve those desired results.

The automated process enables large amounts of communication and data to be processed, presented and simply stored. The project has also led to a number of additional features which have introduced efficiencies to the way we work across the organisation, including searchable databases, notifications and emails, automated reminders, appointment-setting, and file management which have already benefited our organisation greatly and will enhance the work at each ministry location, the capacity of each ministry leader, and will smooth leadership transitions which are all significant factors for the church.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

After the scope was defined, TkXel shared the Project Wiki with us which contained all the information relevant to the project including sprint details, contact information of team members and deadlines.

Furthermore, they used Trello to track the progress of each task and at the same time ensured complete transparency. They also made available to us an online code repository in case we wanted to review the quality of code ourselves. We appreciate TkXel’s efforts in using all these tools to keep us updated regarding the project details. Their project management was effective in delivering the app well before the stipulated deadline.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We have been working with TkXel since October 2018 (almost a year) and we found their communication extremely effective and professional. They used a couple of software tools to make sure we were up to date with our project progress.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We have enjoyed a great working relationship with TkXel and found them very responsive to any minor suggestions we had along the way. There is nothing further to note here.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a project manager at a company that generates sales and marketing insights using AI technology. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Tkxel?

We hired the Tkxel team to implement an AI-enabled, account-based marketing platform.

What were your goals for this project?

To build a SaaS platform that equips B2B sales teams with account insights. The desired platform would facilitate content marketing and measure the impact of those efforts.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

There are few firms who can implement machine learning projects seamlessly. Since our company’s management was already familiar with Tkxel’s engineering expertise, we knew they would be the perfect choice for implementing an AI platform.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Tkxel’s engineering team defined the app architecture using best practices. They chose to use a myriad of tools to support their work, including IBM Watson and Apache Solr functionalities. They used a Django framework to code in Python as well as an AngularJS framework to build the AI platform. They also added an iOS and Android tech stack. The resulting functionalities of the app included monitoring customized indicators and tracking live statistics.

To promote app accessibility, they implemented custom UI components. They wrote an algorithm that will present a user with content they are most likely to engage with first. The platform enables users to refresh and load data asynchronously from a RESTful API and then sort it based on preference. They also added offline access and syncing for all data on the platform.

What was the team composition?

The team held three backend members and one frontend member. There were two mobile specialists, one configuration manager, and two teammates in charge of QA.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Their design ensured a seamless UX for our end users. Visitors can interact with content, set alerts, tag information, take notes, and receive suggestions on relevant information.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Their project management was an immense improvement from other companies we’ve used. They use tools like Slack, Asana, Project Wiki, and Jira to communicate with internal stakeholders. Their collaboration has been seamless and we look forward to working with them again in the future.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their technical prowess is beyond exceptional. The team was in perfect sync, executing our vision into reality. From pre-sales to post-deployment, Tkxel was always there to support us. In addition to their development work, they made valuable suggestions to internal stakeholders.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We have had a very positive experience working with Tkxel. To have such amazing talent across the entire spectrum of your organization is a rare thing.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a business development manager at a professional training and business certification organization. We specialize in ISO management training, auditing, and testing, as well as inspection and certification.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Tkxel?

We hired Tkxel to build a custom web application that could be integrated with third-party business process tools.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to develop a platform that could make our workforce more productive and help us manage our network of clients. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

One of their sales development reps cold emailed me describing the company’s services and areas of expertise, which then lead to an initial discovery call with their senior account executive. The call went very well, and we chose to partner with them because of their ability to quickly grasp our requirements and understand our business objectives.

Describe the project in detail.

Tkxel provided end-to-end software design and delivery. After gathering our requirements, they designed prototypes and showed them to us on InVision. Then, after receiving feedback from our team, they built a responsive mobile application using React.js and a variety of other backend technologies. They also designed the app to integrate with several third-party platforms that automate manual tasks.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a React.js engineer, a PHP engineer, and a UX consultant.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The web-based platform that Tkxel made has helped our salesforce in meeting their quarterly targets. The product lets our team members focus more on customers and less on menial tasks, and we have found that we can do twice the number of inspections in the same amount of time. We operate in five different countries on three continents, and we now have a product that enables us to do in-depth reporting across each of these geographies. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We had complete visibility into the work that was being done, and all of our queries were answered very quickly. We were also given weekly reports about the status of the project, which helped with communication on our end. 

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We were very impressed with the prototypes that Tixkel delivered. The team built the prototypes within a short period, and they aligned perfectly with our vision. This really set the tone for the success of the project.

Tkxel truly believes in putting the customer at the heart of their organization. They are one of those few companies who work to build long-lasting customer relationships. They consistently prioritized our needs and put forth extra effort to make sure the product was of the highest quality. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

The project could have been completed a week or two earlier, that would have saved us a few bucks. So, project delivery time could be improved.

I'm the managing director at Cross Sea Partners. We work with entrepreneurs, small- and medium-sized business, and marketing agencies to provide valuable programming and development services. We bring websites and mobile apps to life, complete their requirements, and match each client to one of our proven development partners.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Tkxel?

Tkxel has been our development partner for over a decade. We partner with them for custom software development, mobile app development, web app development, UX design, and staff augmentation.

What were your goals for this project?

Our clients give us a large number of projects and want to augment their in-house team with dedicated resources. Since software engineers experience a huge gap between demand and supply, we engage technology firms who understand our client requirements and deliver end-to-end solutions. Tkxel is our oldest and most reliable partner. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

One of my colleagues heard about Tkxel and brought them up during a discussion. We did some research to learn about their services and capabilities. When we reached out to their management, we were pleasantly surprised to know about their past experience and clients. I was convinced that Tkxel would be a great development partner.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Over the years, Tkxel has delivered over 20 projects of varying size and magnitude for different industry verticals. Tkxel has worked with startups and enterprises, but their core strength lies with small- and medium-sized businesses. They are perhaps known best for their staff augmentation service, since they work with high-quality resources who are extremely capable and talented.

What was the team composition?

We've worked with project managers, web and mobile software engineers, designers, developers, and machine learning engineers. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Our clients say great things about the way Tkxel operates and delivers projects on time. Their engineering capabilities are beyond excellent. From gathering initial requirements to translating ideas into functional apps, Tkxel has the best talent pool of engineers available. We always receive top-quality solutions.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Every team member has great communication skills, so our clients have no trouble understanding their expectations. Tkxel uses tools like Slack, Asana, Skype, and Jira to keep clients in the loop.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They're easygoing, but their resources are extremely technically sound. It has been a pleasure to work with Tkxel for over a decade. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with them in the years to come.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the customer success manager at a staff augmentation firm that provides software engineering talent to U.S. companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Tkxel?

One of our clients in the financial services industry was not happy with their chosen vendor to shift an entire database to a Salesforce CRM. We engaged with Tkxel to resume the project and coordinate the data migration, customizations, and integrations.

What were your goals for this project?

We aimed to improve the workflow of migrating all of our client’s data from a legacy system to Salesforce.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We reached out to a number of companies in Virginia that are proficient in Salesforce. Tkxel had a high degree of expertise, and they were able to flex resources to meet our client’s requests. Tkxel offered a competitive rate, which earned them the project.

Describe the project in detail.

Tkxel began the implementation process with a two-week discovery workshop to understand business workflows and have detailed discussions with various department heads. Once a solution was agreed to and formulated, Tkxel coordinated the Salesforce integration with third-party apps such as QuickBooks, MailChimp, and DocuSign, among others. Once Tkxel completed the implementation, their team trained our client’s Salesforce users.

What was the team composition?

We worked with three Salesforce engineers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The Salesforce customizations fit the needs of our client, who is now able to run reports on all of their data to help make well-informed business decisions. Our client is now able to manage both their database and their full sales cycle within Salesforce, eliminating the need for multiple applications.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Tkxel’s team met all milestones without delays or any hassles. They required no micromanaging. Because they work with an agile methodology, both sides were clear on the expectations. It was a delightful experience working with Tkxel.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Tkxel always went above and beyond to make sure our client was happy at all times.

Are there any areas for improvement?

It would have been expensive to ask their team to work from our office, which is what we would have preferred.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Tkxel?

We provide safety compliance and training options for employers according to OSHA standards. Most of our business processes were manual, which was inefficient and led to human errors in the paperwork. We connected with Tkxel to help automate these processes.

What were your goals for this project?

We hoped to streamline our workflow by developing a native Android and iOS application that our clients and site inspectors could use to complete various documents during a workplace evaluation.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

One of their business development managers contacted us to gauge our custom software development needs. Because we were already considering a tool of this kind, we scheduled a call with their team. After a few discussions, we were convinced that Tkxel could execute our vision.

Describe the project in detail.

We held a discovery session to detail our requirements and articulate our needs. Following that, their UX designer created and delivered mock-ups of the application. After a few rounds of feedback that fostered new iterations, we finalized the design. Their development team then took to building the app using Ruby on Rails.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a project manager, one frontend engineer for both iOS and Android development, one QA technician, and one Ruby on Rails developer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Our business processes have become much more efficient and effective. We have eliminated the hassle of maintaining paperwork and migrating it to Excel. Our clients and employees can now work anytime and anywhere, which has resulted in a more satisfied and productive workforce and relationship with clients.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The team was well-organized. We have worked with several different companies in the past, but it was indeed a joy working with the Tkxel team. They logged all interactions, and the project manager was always available to answer our questions. Every company claims to be client-focused, but Tkxel truly lives by this principle.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They listened to our requirements carefully and diligently, and they proposed a solution rather than selling their solution without paying heed to our needs.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Whatever we communicated to the Tkxel team, they executed it, but we would have preferred if they could have suggested feature enhancements. We also experienced some miscommunication regarding the content of our automatic email reply template.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the chief marketing officer at OT Ventures. We’re a global game development agency that specializes in Android, iOS, and Windows gaming and utility apps for local and international markets.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire TkXel?

Because we operate globally, we needed a solution to support our workflow and maintain employee engagement on a daily basis. We wanted to give our staff the opportunity to stay involved in business operations from any part of the world, allowing them to stay connected with their friends and family members.

What were your goals for this project?

The software we were using didn’t align with our business model, so we decided to create a new solution that encourages employee productivity without compromising their work-life balance.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We searched online for a custom software development firm that had completed app development projects for clients in our industry. Out of the five companies we’d shortlisted, TkXel stood out for their experience and online reputation.

Describe the project in detail.

We started the engagement with a two-week discovery workshop. TkXel developed an understanding of our vision and drafted a roadmap, which they used to create a collection of high-fidelity prototypes and design mockups. From there, the team built out the platform using .NET technology. We followed an agile development methodology.

Within a month, TkXel delivered an MVP. We ran a two-week trial with our global staff to gather feedback. Based on that, we asked their team to complete the solution and integrate additional features and functionalities.

What was the team composition?

We had a project manager, a UX/UI designer, two .NET engineers, and a Ruby on Rails engineer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The application is highly praised by employees for its user-friendly interface. After we fully launched the solution, the entirety of our worldwide staff adopted it within two weeks.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We had a great experience with TkXel. I’m highly impressed with the work ethic of their dedicated employees. They went above and beyond to meet our expectations.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

TkXel always delivered top-quality work. They carefully listened to our requirements and never rushed their pace of work. It was a seamless engagement. Partnering with the TkXel team was one of the best decisions that my company has made.

Are there any areas for improvement?

They have tremendous potential. As they expand their business model to offer services to a global market, they will become a more valuable partner. They truly deliver exceptional customer experiences.
