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 director of engineering at an addiction recovery platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Xmartlabs?

We hired Xmartlabs for their software development expertise through building a mobile application we wanted to get to market. There were challenges with the complexity of the technology as well as recruiting in our local market.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

For the mobile app, the team used TypeScript and React Native for development. The platform is available for both Android and iOS.

What is the team composition?

We worked with two developers throughout our collaboration.

How did you come to work with Xmartlabs?

We reached out to Xmartlabs based on a referral from someone in our professional network. Our team felt that they were a good fit because of their experience working with companies of a similar profile with similar needs. Their technical expertise was also noteworthy.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began sometime in the middle of 2018, and we released the app into the market in December 2018. We’ve also carried the engagement forward, making our relationship ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Xmartlabs produced a portion of our software product that many other developers tried and failed. Their expertise, particularly at the early stages of research and proposing possible solutions, was quite detailed and balanced. They look for the best overall solution, not necessarily trying to extend the collaboration. Xmartlabs is fully embedded, working alongside us as if they’re part of our operation.

How did Xmartlabs perform from a project management standpoint?

Xmartlabs integrated into our own project management processes. They were given our system accounts and then operated alongside the employees.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their team is proactive. They don’t sit back and wait for direction, but propose solutions and look ahead. Xmartlabs is an active part of our team.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, nothing comes to mind.

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 Gush, a consumer internet company.
 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Xmartlabs?
 
We were trying to get a web app to market as quickly as possible, so we used Xmartlabs to support our in-house engineering team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?
 
They performed frontend engineering on the web app using JavaScript, HTML, React, and Node.js. 

What is the team composition?
 
They assigned one junior developer and a midlevel to a senior developer who helped the junior developer. They also had a project manager who ensured the team adhered to timelines. 

How did you come to work with Xmartlabs?
 
I met the founder a couple of years ago, so I thought of them when we were hiring. We spoke with several development agencies, asked for pricing quotes, and met team members. After this process, we realized Xmart offered the best combination of a good development process and strong operations. They also offered the best value to cost ratio. 

How much have you invested with them?
 
We have invested about $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?
 
We started in mid-September or early October 2018, and we stopped working with them in February 2019. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The team produced high-quality code within a reliable timeframe. They started generating value beyond their assignments, suggesting helpful code enhancements and suggested tweaks that would result in long-term success.  

How did Xmartlabs perform from a project management standpoint?
 
They dipped into our stack of management tools, including Jira and Slack. For design work, they introduced us to Abstract, which was quite helpful. 

They had a strong communication style, offering daily check-ins. We connected just enough to remain updated on their progress without feeling burdened with too much information. Xmartlabs also paid close attention to the schedule, making sure they caught up after any delays.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We appreciated how they provided both a senior engineer and the project manager to ensure high-quality support for the junior developer. When the junior developer had trouble accomplishing tasks on time, they allocated more work to a more experienced developer mostly free of cost. 

The team was very friendly, and working with them was a pleasure. We had a great cultural fit, and they maintained a positive attitude throughout the process. If anything negative happened, they ensured it didn’t affect the deadlines or the quality of their work.
 
Are there any areas they could improve?
 
There was a miscalculation on both of our parts considering the ability of the junior engineer to complete the project without support. However, they were happy to tweak their resource package to ensure they could meet the initial scope we described. Out of vendors we’ve worked with so far, working with Xmart has been the most positive 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’m the CTO of a health technology startup.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Xmartlabs?

We needed mobile application development help. At the time, we weren't capable of developing an Android app in-house.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed an Android application for us in the health technology space. We’d developed an iOS app internally, and Xmartlabs used that to build an equivalent Android solution. The application enables users (asthma patients) to track and monitor their health. They can log asthma attacks, complete a quality of life survey, and receive advice on managing their lifestyle based on several variables: fitness levels, attacks, medication, and environmental factors such as pollen count, temperature, wind speed, and pollution levels. They developed the app using Java for Android. They’ve also done work on other projects using Objective-C for iOS.

What is the team composition?

We work with a project manager and several developers. We’ve also been in touch with the CEO and CTO.

How did you come to work with Xmartlabs?

We posted the job on Upwork and they came to us with a competitive quote and examples of their previous work. They provided an overview of their development process, and we were able to speak to both their CEO and CTO to get to know their business. They spoke fluent English, and seeing how there was only a few hours’ time difference, we signed with them. They came across as incredibly professional and competent.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since May 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our client is extremely fond of the solution. The Android solution Xmartlabs developed won several awards in the pharmaceutical industry in the UK, as did our internally developed iOS app.

How did Xmartlabs perform from a project management standpoint?

They use Slack, which we already used internally, and we communicate with the project manager and developers daily. Weekly calls on Google Hangouts allow us to share screens and see what they’re working on. They’re also available for ad hoc calls when required.

We use Jira, and they were willing to adapt to that system. They log and update tasks and build their sprints in Jira. Feedback also comes through Jira, as do weekly builds that we pass off to our QA team. Their project manager is fantastic to work with because of their responsiveness.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their software development lifecycle is incredibly strong. They put a senior programmer in place to oversee everything and do code reviews, which they share with us. This provides us evidence as to the level of rigor they work with.

Everything goes through QA on their side before we see it, but they accept any bugs we find without resistance or hesitation. Additionally, they've shown initiative in modifying our iOS designs where they conflict with Android technology using their internal design team.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I don’t think so. They’ve been open to feedback throughout the project, and their CTO checks-in weekly or bi-weekly to keep a pulse on how things are progressing. Our relationship is very strong now.

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 founder of Free & Willing, a freelance job platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Xmartlabs?

Xmartlabs helped me develop, launch, and evolve the platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

While initially developing the website, I provided Xmartlabs with designs and content, and I relied on their team to build the backend. The website utilizes AWS and is coded with Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, and jQuery. Over time, I improved my own coding skills, but Xmartlabs cleaned up much of my work. Since the site was completed and launched, I have relied on Xmartlabs to provide updates as necessary.

What is the team composition?

The team usually consists of a project manager and a developer, but a technical lead is sometimes involved depending on how junior or senior the developer is.

How did you come to work with Xmartlabs?

I began working with Xmartlabs about six years ago when I approached them about a proof of concept. I appreciated their strong communication. Even though they are remote, we operate in the same time zone, and I preferred to work with them over a developer in Asia or Europe.

What is the status of this engagement?

I engaged them originally in 2012, but this current project began in 2014 and remains ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Throughout the development and post-launch, Xmartlabs has proven to be efficient and reliable. My website has experienced no major issues because Xmartlabs prioritizes both functionality and a strong UX.

How did Xmartlabs perform from a project management standpoint?

I can sleep well at night knowing that they’re on my team. We collaborate well through Slack for day-to-day tasks. We only use email when discussing financial terms.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They will execute on all specifications and do so fairly quickly—that’s what makes a developer special to me.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their written English is strong, but their spoken English could be improved. Still, it’s nothing that prevents us from working together.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the CEO of a B2B software provider.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Xmartlabs?

We needed additional development resources that would become part of our development team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They've done a number of development projects for us using mainly Java. They've also used MySQL, Ebean, Framework, and React. We made them part of our development team, so I don't see our collaboration as outsourcing–even though they're based in Latin America.

What is the team composition?

We work with three of their developers.

How did you come to work with Xmartlabs?

They were recommended to me by a colleague who had worked with them previously.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in March 2018 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They've met all of our expectations, and they've done all the work we assigned to them with rigor and diligence. We see them as part of our team, and they're acting that way. I can give them any kind of work at this point.

How did Xmartlabs perform from a project management standpoint?

They've been using our internal project management tools, such as Pivotal Tracker and Slack.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They've blended in with the rest of our team rather than being a separate team. Also, they go above and beyond to understand our product and the product evolution.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Nothing comes to mind.

How did Xmartlabs perform from a project management standpoint?

I’m totally content. They’ve never missed a deadline. We communicate using Trello, Slack, and daily stand-ups.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re pretty amazing. They’ve gone out of their way to learn about my project, and make sure the right people are working on it. They’re based in Uruguay. I moved down there to build the software, and they treat me like family. I've gained a lot of insight from them about my product. They ask good questions, and challenge me to use my knowledge.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not really.

Feedback summary:

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 was the VP of engineering for a digital identity platform. We worked to simplify how individuals could securely prove their identity online.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Xmartlabs?

We had built APIs and UIs, but didn’t have a mobile presence. We wanted a mobile application to introduce ourselves to that market, but didn’t have the in-house resources to build one.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Xmartlabs developed a mobile wallet app for iOS and Android with support from our in-house design team. The solution enabled users to redeem benefits and verify their identity at our partner websites. Users would create an account and then store and manage their various identifications—whether student or military—in the app. Xmartlabs built the solution on native platforms and released the iOS version into the App Store in late 2017.

What is the team composition?

Enrique (Co-Founder, Xmartlabs) served as the project manager. The team included a technical architect, and a full-time engineer for each mobile platform.

How did you come to work with Xmartlabs?

Another vendor that we knew and trusted recommended Xmartlabs. As a result, they were high on our list when we evaluated different firms.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in November 2016. I left the company in September 2017 and the partnership ended a few months after that.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since this app was an unfulfilled goal, I consider seeing it in the App Store to be a marker of success. Overall, the team was insightful and provided intimate knowledge about native app development. We completely relied on them to finish the app.

How did Xmartlabs perform from a project management standpoint?

Communication was consistent. They did phone calls, daily stand-ups, and weekly sprints on a regular basis. The team excelled at backlog management and always kept us in the loop.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Some of our concepts were in the identity space and weren't common in typical app development projects. The team leveraged their expertise to learn new things quickly. They were also helpful with the overall process and sprint planning.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The language barrier caused some confusion. We communicated over Slack and asked for a few clarifications. While it was the only thing that came up, it wasn’t a real issue.

Any advice for potential customers?

Don’t treat technology vendors like another black box that will figure everything out. Be involved in the process to have a successful product at the end. Results require work on both sides.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the founder of Xapnik. Xapnik is a tracking tool for small groups that allows people to follow each other and engage in activity on social media.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Xmartlabs?

I had a prototype of the app, which I built in Angular, but it wasn't good enough to launch with. I was looking for a company to help me rewrite it in React Native and update it to ensure it's a progressive web app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I provided them with the full write-up of the technical and business requirements. After that, they came back to me with a detailed proposal that included the timeline and the cost. Then, they developed a React frontend, while I wrote the backend. I'm also planning to do phase 2 with them.

What is the team composition?

I worked with one full-time developer and a project manager.

How did you come to work with them?

They were a recommendation from a friend who had used them for smaller React Native projects and was happy with their work. When you hire an offshore company, there are usually concerns about the quality of work and a language barrier, but Xmartlabs has a very professional team that speaks perfect English. I also liked the fact that they used agile methodology, so I hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

I spent about $30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

I worked with them between April–August 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They produced a high-quality code. Initially, I had to do everything myself, so they were a tremendous help. They treated me like a member of their team rather than a customer, which was extremely valuable to me.

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

They broke down their work in daily tasks, so I could see their day-to-day progress. We also used Trello and Slack for project management. They were very transparent and stayed on schedule. It was a pleasure to work with them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their developers are highly skilled and responsive.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can't think of anything. I was really happy with them.

The completed app met all requirements. Xmartlabs offered ideas for improvement and guidance for product testing. They performed well beyond the original scope, a credit to their communicative and bright team of developers.

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 was the co-founder of a real estate app that allows renters to manage their apartments and bills.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Xmartlabs?

We had them work on a native iOS application with a user interface that interacted with the API that our team had already built.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They designed the application that allows users to better manage their money as it pertains to their homes or apartments. Users can split bills with roommates and set up accounts for gas, electric, internet, and renter’s insurance.

What is the team composition?

We worked with two to three Uruguay-based developers.

How did you come to work with Xmartlabs?

They had worked on some open-source projects we had used before. We reached out to them because many of the components we were using in our application were elements their team had built.

How much have you invested with them?

We paid them $2,500 per developer per week. I do not have an exact total.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We contracted with them for very specific features, and they delivered them. They finished the application and accomplished everything we needed.

How did Xmartlabs perform from a project management standpoint?

We used Trello and Slack to stay in communication. They were quick to respond and complete certain features. More or less, they met the project’s deadlines. We all had to adjust to the time difference—we only had a couple hours in the morning to overlap schedules, but overall it was smooth.

What did you find most impressive about them?

If something was outside the scope of the product, like a build tool that would help us speed up our development or a test we needed to integrate, they seemed to be very on top of the best practices, and they worked well with our existing engineering team on integrating those things.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, none come to mind.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Xmartlab built exactly what was required and consistently met deadlines. Their team was responsive and attentive, solving even some of the most complex problems. They didn’t do project management, but worked in tandem with the in-house team.

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 technical co-founder and current CTO of Nobly POS, an iPad-based point of sale system.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Xmartlabs?

We had a minimum viable product for our app, but our contractor didn’t have enough time to dedicate to our project. We needed a partner who could develop the iPad app, which is the main app our merchants use in their stores.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Xmartlabs built the iOS app for our POS system. They initially worked in Objective-C but eventually switched over to Swift. They integrated the product with various different hardware, such as printers and payment providers.

They operated as an essential part of our team and even interacted with customers and helped market the product.

What is the team composition?

They provided a designer and three developers.

How did you come to work with Xmartlabs?

A friend referred me to Xmartlabs. They were in the right time zone, could speak English well, and had a good value for cost.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around $60,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from August 2014–September 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We were incredibly happy with their work.

How did Xmartlabs perform from a project management standpoint?

They were available when we needed them, even on weekends and late at night. We used Slack and Jira to communicate, although I did all the project management. We had daily meetings and worked on production issues together.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Xmartlabs solved a lot of difficult problems with our platform. They put their best workers on our project, including one of their founders who’s incredibly talented. They were invested in our company and wanted to see the product succeed.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We didn’t have any problems.
