BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm a product manager at Johnson & Johnson.  I work in the consumer division for IT and I manage a digital engagement platform where different brands launch their websites.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ubik Group?

We needed a vendor to help us develop a new feature for our platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We have a Drupal web platform and Ubik developed a feature that allows professionals to receive sample orders and validate their license numbers. They used PHP and MySQL for development and did integrations with NetSuite and our vendor’s custom platform.

What is the team composition?

I worked with Mike Bysiek (Founder, Ubik Group), three developers, and a QA resource.

How did you come to work with Ubik Group?

I worked with Mike previously and I liked the quality of his work. They had the technical expertise that we needed and understood our needs, so we decided to work with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between $70,000–$100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in March 2018, and the project was completed in September 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Several of our major professional brands are using the feature, which was our goal.

How did Ubik Group perform from a project management standpoint?

Mike was leading the project and the communication was excellent. He sent us regular status updates and was always available when we needed him.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They're a boutique agency that is able to give personal attention to their clients. They gave us a highly-skilled team with a great leadership for a very reasonable price.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their skilled software developers are their biggest asset, so I hope they retain them in addition to bringing on new talent.

Feedback summary: 

Ubik delivered a high-quality MVP that incorporated very complex data sets, receiving a lot of positive momentum and feedback thus far. Their team is the best in the industry; they're extremely talented, timely, and responsive to client needs. 

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 partner at an organization that's developing a complex sustainability platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ubik Group?

We reached out to Ubik to develop a blockchain app and a full development team. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Ubik helped us build a working MVP from the ground up within five weeks, using the specifications we provided and a variety of technologies that were mostly modular or plugged in from existing tech specs. They provided frontend and backend resources to build the web and mobile-based platform, which involves many different blockchains (i.e., supply chain, logistics, and data management). They continue to provide support as we launch the platform and move into the next phase. 

What is the team composition? 

We work directly with Mike (CEO and Founder, Ubik Group), as well as two project managers and a team of developers on a daily basis. Members of their team are located in different parts of the world, so we pretty much have someone working on the project at all hours of the day.

How did you come to work with Ubik Group?

We heard of Ubik by word of mouth and through positive referrals from previous clients of theirs. We felt they had a very extensive and talented team of affordable developers, who also align well with our values and mission. 

How much have you invested with them?

We've invested in the range of $100,000–$250,000, which will increase as the team scales over time. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started talking to them in October 2018, and they turned an MVP around within five weeks starting in January 2019. Our relationship is still ongoing and we anticipate working with them for the foreseeable future. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They were able to develop a high-quality MVP in just five weeks at a very competitive rate. They understood the importance of turning the product around quickly, so we would be able to present it at an important event, working well beyond business hours in order to pull it off.

They're in the process of helping us pioneer cutting-edge technologies that have never been done before. The platform is very complex and gaining a lot of positive momentum. They've done a great job of not only building it out, but also providing adequate cybersecurity and project management resources as well. 

How did Ubik Group perform from a project management standpoint?

Their communication is incredible, despite all the many locations their staff resides in. They're very accessible on Slack and WhatsApp and good about tracking their work. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

The talent of their developers and affordable rates sets them apart. They're one of the highest quality blockchain developers on the market, and their customer service is second to none. They genuinely care about the success of the projects they take on, which is directly reflected in their deliverables. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could improve how they market themselves in order to grow their business.
