      Feedback summary: 

      Now, the app functions much more smoothly. The crash rate has decreased by more than 65%, and existing bugs are easily solved. The solution has a stronger UX, and it's easy to add new features. It was a seamless collaboration complimented by Vincit California's goal-oriented style.

      The client submitted this review online.

      BACKGROUND

      Please describe your company and your position there.

      I'm the Product & Engineering Manager to the company. We aim to reconnect older adults disconnected from their families and friends by providing a senior-friendly tablet solution. The solution was built & designed specifically for seniors, where the purchasing, unboxing, hardware, and software is all simple, safe, and secure. We also provide companion apps and administrative sites for families of our members to use to engage with their loved ones.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      For what projects/services did your company hire Vincit California?

      Challenge: Our iOS companion app architecture had become very difficult to debug, scale, or even work on. We wanted a rewrite, but with our team juggling so many other priorities, it was hard to find the time.

      What were your goals for this project?

      Our goals were to solve the challenges we were facing: - To not only reduce the amount of bugs & crashes, but to allow for bugs & crashes to be reasonable to debug and fix in the future - To have an architecture that's delightful to scale and add features to

      SOLUTION

      How did you select this vendor?

      One of our employees introduced me to Dalip, who sold us pretty easily since we had a good recommendation.

      Describe the project in detail.

      Scope: To get a working networking & offline storage architecture that we were happy with, as well as a few working examples that we could build from. Documentation: we gave the team our code base to look over before the project was started iOS Native Additionally, the Vincit team provided us with support in implementation all the individual use cases of the architecture. We build through the use cases, but if we ever came across problems, they were there for support.

      What was the team composition?

      Dalip: Project Manager & Business Dev Riku: Lead Developer Matti: Developer We did lose Matti in some of the later weeks during the support phase, but that worked out just fine.

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

      Happy to say that this project accomplished all the goals that it set out to. Our crash rate is down more than 65%, and the crashes that we do see are solvable with a clear path. This immediately provides a much better user experience for our users. Building new functionality on the new architecture is delightful, and we see a clear path for scaling.

      How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

      We used a shared slack channel and GitHub, which worked out very well. The Vincit team was super responsive and willing to tackle or at least advise with any problem we brought up.

      What did you find most impressive about this company?

      Working with Vincit was like working with members of our own team, both in the day-to-day work, and the bigger picture planning. They were much more focused on satisfying our goals than they were on things like contract specifics, billing, etc.

      Are there any areas for improvement?

      Nope, everything was great.

      BACKGROUND

      Introduce your business and what you do there.

      I am the director of management at Martin Container, a shipping and logistics company based in Los Angeles Harbor. We handle freight storage for treated storage and customized storage solutions.

      What challenge were you trying to address with Vincit California?

      We needed to revamp our website to better explain what we do.

      SOLUTION

      What was the scope of their involvement?

      Vincit California redesigned our website for us. Their team created a new customized quotes page that allows customers to see our products, select which features they want, and generate a quote. Before we only had a page where people can email in requests, so this is much more intuitive for our clients.

      Our process was collaborative and they would take my suggestions, but I trusted them to make the right decisions. They would tweak my suggestions based on their understanding of how clients would perceive it. Their team also created content for our site and performed SEO.

      What is the team composition?

      I had one main point of contact at Vincit California, but we worked with a team of five.

      How did you come to work with Vincit California?

      Someone I knew had worked with them in the past and was later brought on board as head of business at Vincit California.

      We have invested around $80,000.

      What is the status of this engagement?

      Our engagement with Vincit California ran from March–August 2019.

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

      Through quote requests, we’ve seen a 30% increase in traffic. It’s become a lot easier for our customers to communicate with us. We also get a lot fewer dead leads thanks to our streamlined quotes page.

      How did Vincit California perform from a project management standpoint?

      Vincit California was incredibly communicative about everything going on. Our teams were in constant contact. They made it easy by using slack. Their team usually responds to my messages within 15–20 minutes.

      What did you find most impressive about them?

      Vincit California was always understanding about timelines. I’d get incredibly busy and they weren’t pushy about me getting them information. They understood my time constraints, which was great.

      Are there any areas they could improve?

      No, they’ve been great all around.

      Do you have any advice for potential customers?

      They’re very experienced and knowledgable so just communicate with them. Know what you want to get out of the engagement because they can provide it.

      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 marketing manager at Q-Cells. We’re a solar panel manufacturer. 

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      What challenge were you trying to address with Vincit California?

      In lieu of a recently launched customer loyalty program, we wanted to the team to develop a mobile app with an accessible scanning feature. Members can accrue points for the solar panels they purchase if they register the panel by scanning it. 

      SOLUTION

      What was the scope of their involvement?

      The team provided design and development for the app and scanning feature, and they created it for both Android and iOS platforms. The app has launched, but they’re continuing to provide maintenance and support. We also expect to add more functionalities to the platform. 

      What is the team composition?

      We began working with three specialists and then scaled up to about 6–7 team members. A project manager manages the schedule and passes tasks down to points of contact accordingly.

      How did you come to work with Vincit California?

      Vincit California works out of the same building as us, and I happened to pick up a branded item at a building event they were sponsoring. Since I had been looking for app developers, I visited their office and decided to hire them.

      How much have you invested with them?

      We’ve invested around $40,000.

      What is the status of this engagement?

      We began working with them in August 2018, the app launched at the end of September 2018, and they are continually providing support. We expect to work with them on larger projects in the future.

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

      About 50 users out of a pool of 200 customers have started to scan their products, which is a big accomplishment. Before, no customers were registering their products due to an inefficient process. Now, users praise the functionality of our scanning feature. One customer said it was the best scanner they’ve ever used.

      How did Vincit California perform from a project management standpoint?

      They introduced us to software communication tools that have been been very helpful (e.g. Trello and Slack). They are prompt communicators, and they always update us on the development process.

      What did you find most impressive about them?

      This team makes app development fun. It’s clear the company values its employees—they are always so happy. I would visit their office just because it has such a great atmosphere. This positive culture has supported employees’ quality performance.

      Are there any areas they could improve?

      No, I’m happy with their work. We’re looking forward to continuing work with them in the future.

      Do you have any advice for potential customers?

      Even though their price may be higher than average, the value of their performance exceeds the cost.

      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 of DISH. We’re launching a restaurant app.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      What challenge were you trying to address with Vincit California?

      We engaged Vincit California to develop our app and business.

      SOLUTION

      What was the scope of their involvement?

      The app allows users to create an aggregated list of their favorite restaurants. Users can follow restaurants, mark ones they want to try, write notes and comments, and access them on a map.

      We first had brainstorming sessions to develop the concept, key markets, and goals of the app. I had a few ideas about what the app would do and look like; Vincit California helped me flesh it out into a full concept through whiteboarding and in-depth conversations.

      Vincit California used those conversations to create wireframes. Their team fully conceptualized the UI/UX to maximize usability within a clean, appealing design. Finally, the team built the app for iOS devices using React Native. The platform allows us to easily create an Android version before we launch the app to the marketplace.

      What is the team composition?

      We work with their head of business, a design lead, a backend developer, and a frontend developer.

      How did you come to work with Vincit California?

      My brother—a web developer—had come across their team’s work, and he recommended them to me.

      What is the status of this engagement?

      We started working together in July 2018, and the project is ongoing. 

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

      We’ve released the app to a few users in core demographics to collect feedback. Those users have taken to the app well and praised its functionality and intuitive UI/UX. We’re refining some features and fixing some bugs before we launch to the greater marketplace. Vincit California is providing maintenance in the meantime.

      How did Vincit California perform from a project management standpoint?

      The project has taken longer than we expected, but Vincit California produced a high-quality app that exceeded our expectations. The team has been highly collaborative since the beginning. We communicate and keep track of progress using Trello.

      What did you find most impressive about them?

      Vincit California provided four people for our brainstorming sessions. Every team member listened to us and offered ways to improve on our ideas; as a result, we have a far better product. I appreciate that they invested resources into the conceptualization stage and that everyone gave their opinion and discussed alternate directions we could take.

      Are there any areas they could improve?

      No, we’ve had an excellent experience so far. At one point, the project experienced some developer turnover, but Vincit California transitioned a replacement resource successfully.

      Any advice for potential customers?

      Go into your engagement with an open mind. Listen to their ideas and incorporate them into your project.

      BACKGROUND

      Introduce your business and what you do there.

      I'm the director of digital operations at KCRW, a nonprofit NPR radio station in California.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      What challenge were you trying to address with Vincit California Inc.?

      We needed some custom development within our mobile app. The frontend designs were already done in-house, but we needed Vincit to build it out.

      SOLUTION

      What was the scope of their involvement?

      Vincit restructured our app using React Native to allow users to access and stream our news and music channels, incorporating Spotify and Apple Music software. When we play certain songs on the radio, users can get a preview of the music through the app and skip around different tracks. They also integrated other APIs, including Salesforce. 

      What is the team composition? 

      We work with a project manager who oversees their technical development team, managing those resources out of offices in Finland and California. We probably had about six people in total on the project, working in sprints.

      How did you come to work with Vincit California Inc.?

      They submitted a proposal during our RFP process after finding the opportunity posted on social media. After we narrowed our choices down to 10 firms, we ultimately chose to work with Vincit based on their amicability, professionalism, and a strong portfolio. 

      How much have you invested with them?

      We probably spent around $150,000, plus our regular retainer costs.

      What is the status of this engagement?

      We started working with them in January 2018 and launched the app by August of the same year, but we still have a retainer agreement with them. 

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

      The new iteration of the app Vincit built has significantly upgraded our platform overall and attracted more users. They helped streamline our code, so certain features are now all in one place and more convenient for users. By using React Native, we're now able to more easily update both versions of the app as needed. We're also very happy with the overall new look and feel of it.

      How did Vincit California Inc. perform from a project management standpoint?

      They're very clear about their processes, but also flexible as needed if the scope changes. They've done a good job of meeting our needs within our budget, so we're very happy overall. We communicated through Slack for the most part and had meetings over the phone every other week. 

      What did you find most impressive about them?

      They're a good balance of professional and serious, yet approachable and fun.

      Are there any areas they could improve?

      It's not in our scope of work, but it'd be nice if they continued to check in with us and propose new features after the app launched. 

      Do you have any advice for potential customers?

      Have a strong and detailed scope of work, because anything is possible. As our scope of work changed, we had to increase our budget, but their team is good about trying to stay within the original budget as much as possible.

      Vincit California is responsive and organized, holding regular meetings and adjusting communication as needed. Their work is always high quality, and their apps have resulted in higher lead conversion than any other products. The team could be more proactive, but overall they do good 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 the digital marketing and communications manager for a global powersports company.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      What challenge were you trying to address with Vincit California?

      We needed a partner to implement a strong mobile strategy and implementation to reach our customers.

      SOLUTION

      What was the scope of their involvement?

      We started our partnership seven years ago, with some basic mobile technology. Now, things have changed quite a bit, and Vincit California’s main responsibility is developing our mobile apps. We have two—one for each product line—and they’ve designed, built, and updated them numerous times, even rebuilding them from the ground up at times. They built the apps in React, for both Android and iOS.

      What is the team composition? 

      We work with an account manager, two developers, and the president when it comes to higher-level stuff.

      How did you come to work with Vincit California?

      They acquired the company that we used to work with. 

      What is the status of this engagement?

      We’ve been working with them since 2011.

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

      The leads generated through the mobile apps convert higher than any of our other resources. 

      How did Vincit California perform from a project management standpoint?

      We have weekly calls and use Basecamp and Trello to track work. Our level of communication adjusts according to our needs and the phase of the project.

      What did you find most impressive about them?

      They code well and quickly, never missing a deadline. They scale to our needs, and we’ve been impressed with the quality of their work. They’re on the cutting edge of technology for their field.

      Are there any areas they could improve?

      They could be more proactive and creative, pushing back with solutions that we may not have originally considered.

      Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

      Communicate frequently and trust their expertise.

      BACKGROUND

      Introduce your business and what you do there.

      I'm the CEO of Click 2 Drive, an online driving school that's been around for 27 years.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      What challenge were you trying to address with Vincit?

      We engaged Vincit to help us build a mobile app to make our platform more accessible to students.

      SOLUTION

      What was the scope of their involvement?

      Vincit designed and developed a mobile educational app for iOS and Android from scratch, working off of basic wireframes and requirements. They incorporated features that allow for email notifications to be sent to students, mobile log-in, and other instructional information.

      What is the team composition?

      We mostly worked with Dalip (Head of Business, Vincit), as well as a senior mobile developer.

      How did you come to work with Vincit?

      I found them through social media.

      How much have you invested with them?

      We spent $50,000–$70,000 in total.

      What is the status of this engagement?

      We worked together from around December 2016 through May 2017.

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

      Vincit successfully delivered to our specifications. Users and employees like the UX overall—it's user-friendly and straightforward.

      How did Vincit perform from a project management standpoint?

      They were detail-oriented and on top of tasks throughout the project. We mostly communicated through in-person meetings, email, or over the phone.

      Do you have any advice for potential customers?

      It's a more detailed process than we expected, so I definitely recommend trying to have your app as thought-out as possible in the early phases, providing their team with details, sketches, wireframes, etc.

      Although the brand book and additional features are still in progress, the engagement has been wholly positive thus far. Consistent follow up, deliberate project management, and a proactive approach to communication have fostered a productive and open collaboration thus far.

      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 vice president of operations at an escrow company in California.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      What challenge were you trying to address with Vincit?

      The engagement with their team started when several colleagues and I branched off of an existing firm and needed to rebrand. This included a new website, logos, stationery, etc. We continue to work with them on new projects that strengthen our brand.

      SOLUTION

      What was the scope of their involvement?

      Our first goal was to establish a web presence. The Vincit team started by designing and developing a simple landing page, and we’re now working together to implement a variety of interactive features that we’ve come up with over the last three-plus years. Initially, we provided messaging and some specific ideas on functionality. They followed up with in-depth competition analysis, and the new features are still currently in development. They’re also creating a brand book for our own internal use.

      What is the team composition?

      Originally, we primarily worked with Dalip (Head of Business, Vincit). Our companies have grown together, which came with its advantages and its challenges. Since the beginning, Dalip has shifted to focus on enhanced branding for us, including ways to make our site more robust and our social media more engaging. We also started to work more closely with Brian (Account Manager, Vincit), who has recently taken a lead on our project. The whole team has been exceptional for us.

      How did you come to work with Vincit?

      A partner who no longer works with us initiated the connection, which predates my time with the firm.

      How much have you invested with them?

      We spent about $20,000 on the first version of the site, and the phase we’re working on now is ongoing.

      What is the status of this engagement?

      The Vincit team started working with us in the first quarter of 2015, and we’re still currently working on features for the site.

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

      The brand book is set to be completed next week. This will be the first deliverable for this phase of the project, but we’ve been very happy with the engagement thus far.

      How did Vincit perform from a project management standpoint?

      Their emphasis on following up has been outstanding throughout the engagement. They provide weekly updates, which we didn’t explicitly ask for, but they’re very proactive in their approach to communicating with us. We always know what’s been accomplished in past weeks and what the goals are for next week. Communication is primarily via phone and email, but their office is relatively close by, so we also meet in person fairly often as well.

      What did you find most impressive about them?

      I was very excited about their approach to learning about our business. The real estate industry can sometimes come across as dry and mundane, but the Vincit team was able to add a fresh and modern element to our brand. After studying our competition, they were able to identify and recommend several areas for us to stand out in the field.

      Are there any areas they could improve?

      Any issues were on our end. This was our first time working through a project like this, and we likely could’ve been more clear around some of our requirements. They’ve done a great job interpreting our ideas and translating them into actionable project goals.

      Any advice for potential customers?

      Remember that they’re a creative company. Let them do what they do best, and be open to seeing things differently.

      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 owner of MOVI Valet. We’re in the process of developing an app for a ticketless valet system that allows you to pay, tip, and request a car.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      What challenge were you trying to address with Vincit?

      Since I don’t have a technology background, I needed someone to bring my idea to life.

      SOLUTION

      What was the scope of their involvement?

      Vincit developed my app for iOS and Android, and handled marketing and branding, doing everything from scratch. In the beginning, I only had an idea of the app, so they helped me come up with wireframes to bring it to life and assisted with choosing a logo and brand colors. They also integrated any new ideas I came up with.

      Two platforms were built. One was client facing and the other for business processes, which included several reporting features and tools to track what’s being collected.

      What is the team composition?

      I initially worked with Dalip (Head of Business, Vincit), and then interfaced with their art director for a little while. After that, a senior full-stack developer took over to put the app together. Now, I work with their marketing coordinator for promoting the app.

      How did you come to work with Vincit?

      We went through a bidding process with several companies. I needed a vendor that was organized enough to communicate what they’re doing and the process behind it, which was something Vincit was able to do, unlike other companies. A colleague of mine knew Dalip and recommended his company.

      How much have you invested with them?

      We spent $25,000.

      What is the status of this engagement?

      We started working together in May 2017 until August 2018.

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

      The app is fully developed and set to go live next week. I’ve had people take a look at it to give me their opinion on the wording and the aesthetic, and there have been very minor changes. Everyone says that Vincit did an amazing job with the app’s build and design. I’m pleased with the product and have sent people their way.

      How did Vincit perform from a project management standpoint?

      They’re excellent. They were always available to answer any questions I had and offered several means of communication, though we mainly used email.

      What did you find most impressive about them?

      From a marketing standpoint, they’re amazing. The work they put forward is something I haven’t seen from other companies.

      Do you have any advice for potential customers?

      Go in with a clear and concise idea of what you want. I went in with a blank canvas, which wasn’t the worst thing but wasn’t the best either. If I had gone in with a clear concept, the process would’ve been faster and I probably wouldn’t have needed as much guidance. This made it a bit harder for me to find out what I wanted.

      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 CEO of SumoDen, a licensed merchandise dealer. We used to be a wholesaler, but recently moved our sales to the direct-to-consumer channel.

      OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

      What challenge were you trying to address with Vincit?

      We needed a developer to build a B2C website from scratch for us.

      SOLUTION

      What was the scope of their involvement?

      Vincit developed a custom site on Shopify from scratch. They designed the layout to best showcase and organize our numerous product skews. Sparkhouse, their in-house media company, shot all the site images including product photos. The team spearheaded our branding strategy meetings. They presented an array of options for color schemes, layouts, and placements and sizes of different buttons. After we selected our favorites, they built wireframes. We started off with basic assets since we planned to modify the design for A/B and conversion testing. 

      Their best contribution was the #MySumoDen hashtag idea. Customers put hashtag products they purchase to put them into their “den.” It took longer than anticipated to iterate our mascot concept, but we appreciated their attention to detail. I remember seeing a dozen sketches they drew to extend the idea in different directions. Several in-depth meetings later, we agreed upon the ideal version. Since this image will be featured on all our products, we don’t want to have to change it any time soon.

      What is the team composition?

      We worked with five total resources including the founder himself. Our project manager was involved in about 65% of the project. After the wireframes were complete, we scaled down to two developers.

      How did you come to work with Vincit?

      One of my partners had previous business experience with Dalip (Head of Business, Vincit) and referred us to Vincit. Having an in-house photo and video production studio made hiring them an easy decision. We liked what we heard and were found their portfolio impressive.

      What is the status of this engagement?

      We worked together from June to October 2017.

      RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

      Vincit came up with the innovative #MySumoDen hashtag concept that’s centric to our entire rebranding strategy. Everyone we’ve shown the final version of our mascot idea to has indicated the team hit the nail on the head in terms of making it appealing and relatable.

      They built a custom platform that’s thoughtfully tailored to all our needs. I like both the original site’s design and the temporary layout they’re using to solicit user feedback. Streamlined navigation makes our many product offerings easy to browse. Sleek, attractive presentation encourages customers to actually purchase items that catch their eye.

      How did Vincit perform from a project management standpoint?

      The team works efficiently and communication has been consistently reliable. Our project manager helped ensure sure everyone was on the same page. Their in-house photography and video production agency enables them to serve all our needs under one roof. It was much easier to communicate with that internal team than a third-party subcontractor.

      Meeting in person helped clearly convey our needs. They promptly compiled and sent us summary notes following each discussion. These reports included set deadlines for implementing new features. We extended the original timeline for positive reasons. As we approached the final iteration, 1–2 critically needed UX modifications emerged. The team flexibly accommodated our requests for these major changes.

      What did you find most impressive about them?

      Their absolute greatest strength is excellent customer service. I appreciated how hands-on the Dalip personally was. The founder was a pillar of reliability from the beginning. I really appreciate how thoughtfully they ensured everything was done to our liking. I can’t think of any comparable vendor who would work that hard so close to the end of an engagement.

      Vincit had the patience and integrity to give us honest assessments and work diligently to maximize our brand. They never took a formulaic or contractual approach. As we approached the final stages, they virtually went back to the drawing board to make major changes in the service of delivering the ideal end product.
