The Review
Feedback summary: 

Although the project is still in discovery, the services provided by TopDevz so far have completely exceeded the expectations of all project stakeholders. Their team is incredibly communicative and willing to cater to any and all requests from their client, whether substance- or process-related.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Energy Practice Solutions is a dental consulting and billing services company to which dental offices can outsource their insurance and patient payment processing systems.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TopDevz?

We hired them to provide custom software development services.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our app is going to be a web-based software on which employees can log in and provide data to allow the system to automatically process insurance claims and payment processing, rather than relying on their own software to do that part of the work. We are still in the discovery phase of the project.

What is the team composition?

We work with one project manager and one developer from their team.

How did you come to work with TopDevz?

Based on their presence and reputation online, they seemed like a good fit for our requirements.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $20,000 with them so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

The process began in November 2019 and is currently ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Given the stage of the project, we have not been tracking any success metrics so far, but I feel very confident and comfortable with what’s going on and how much progress we are making so far. They are very accountable and have given us a lot of peace of mind going forward.

How did TopDevz perform from a project management standpoint?

It has been an excellent experience. They are incredibly communicative, staying in constant contact and providing multiple different avenues for feedback between the project manager and the developer.

What did you find most impressive about them?

At this point, their communication has been the best aspect of the project by far. It surpasses that of any other company I’ve ever worked with.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t feel that there is anything they could do differently. We’re very satisfied with our choice in company.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

When it comes to custom development, communication really is key. Anyone working with them should take advantage of that because they are quick to answer any questions you might have, which can significantly boost the quality of the final product.
