Feedback summary: 

The app was met with praise by the client’s management, leading to a longer-term partnership with Yalantis. The team delivers high-quality, thoroughly-tested development work on time and at great value. They manage every stage of a project with ease and transparency.

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 logistics platform. We offer first-mile, last-mile, next-day, and same-day delivery in our region.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Yalantis?

Budget and resources are always dependent on technology. We onboarded Yalantis to deliver a 6–7-month technology project that we couldn’t do in-house.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We first brought in Yalantis for development. They delivered an AngularJS web application with a Node.js backend. It integrates with our platform, using a couple of Node.js microservices and RESTful APIs talking to some AngularJS components. Yalantis received business requirements from us, and they also handled project management, QA, and release management. They’re currently handling support.

Since then, we discovered that we could staff through their team. We now have two full-time senior Node.js developers from Yalantis among other resources.

What is the team composition?

I’ve worked with 12–15 people from Yalantis in total. These include an account manager, project manager, business analyst, 3–4 Node.js developers, 2–3 AngularJS developers, and a couple of QAs on their team. I’ve also had calls with their resource manager and discussed the commercial part at the project’s beginning with their business development manager.

How did you come to work with Yalantis?

I researched the Ukrainian market and reached out to a few companies, including Yalantis. Part of our technology team is in Russia—making collaboration convenient—and I knew of a UK company that had worked with Yalantis. They were also listed as a top technology company on Google and came recommended by one of my resources. I approached them, had some discussions, and found that they knew what they were doing. 

How much have you invested with them?

The project cost more than $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The collaboration started in October 2018 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I don’t have any metrics so far, but we’ve tested their software with our management and received approval. The work Yalantis delivered was good quality.

How did Yalantis perform from a project management standpoint?

Yalantis is awesome in this respect. They handle the business analysis parts with excellent attention. They help whenever we need to push on anything, and they really care about the parts they’re responsible for in a project. We have weekly calls talking about the team and address any issues.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Yalantis delivered high-quality technologies, which means their QA testers are great. They also deliver on time despite the changes from our side. Every part of their team—from project management to account management to business analysis—is really good. Yalantis is a very good company. For what we paid, we get really good quality.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We had some issues transferring money because of our location, and Yalantis doesn’t offer flexible support plans. Improving this flexibility would add value to them. 

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

I don’t have any specific advice. Yalantis is a good company to go with. If we deliver requirements correctly, validate the work, and help them with the delivery, we get a very good piece of software.

Although there aren’t any metrics, the app was received positively. Yalantis’ team organized the project into sprints so they could easily implement changes, but the app had few bugs, and only minimal changes were made. Their team provided regular project updates, ensuring strong communication.

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 a senior project manager at Digital Surgeons, and we are a creative marketing agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Yalantis?

We designed a mobile app for a client of ours, but we don’t have any in-house developers. So, we needed to partner with a company that had the ability to develop a mobile app that could incorporate our client’s algorithms.  

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Yalantis developed an iOS mobile app that tracks the user’s daily water intake. The app uses our client’s algorithm to calculate recommendations for water consumption and monitors progress towards a hydration goal. 

What is the team composition?

I worked directly with their CEO, two project managers, and a team of business analysts. There was a little turnover within the team when we paused development, but the transition was seamless.

How did you come to work with Yalantis?

We narrowed down our selection group to three potential partners and chose Yalantis based on their expertise, portfolio, and pricing. It was clear that they would be the right fit.

How much have you invested with them?

Our client spent $55,000 with them. Their team was sensitive to our client’s budget and warned us if anything would cause us to go over our quote.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from July 2018–March 2019.  

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app is in our client’s hands, but they haven’t released it yet because they continue to alter their algorithm. Although we don’t have any success metrics, we definitely had a positive experience working with Yalantis. When we reviewed their work between sprints, we had very minimal feedback. The app had very few bugs, and we didn’t request very many changes to their work. They followed our design very closely. They’re a top-notch team.

How did Yalantis perform from a project management standpoint?

Although we needed to shift timelines a few times, they were very good at setting expectations and providing reports. They divided the project into sprints, and I was always aware of the project’s status, what was being prioritized, and what was being pushed to the next sprint.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their project management was superb and they delivered a solid product.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There was a small language barrier and we faced a few communication challenges because we were in different time zones. However, these were easy to address with a little patience and cooperation.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

The more upfront you are with your needs and what your budget is, the better.

Feedback summary: 

The finished app came in under budget and ahead of schedule. Yalantis managed the project well and were friendly and pleasant throughout the exchange. They exhibited a level of sophistication, and they were highly detailed.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We developed two native phone applications and are a technology company diving into the reverse logistics shipping chain. We pair e-commerce shoppers with on-demand independent contractor drivers. I'm a co-founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Yalantis?

The industry pain point for the consumer is returning unwanted or damaged items. To get compensation for that item, consumers either have to return to the post office or go onto a webpage to schedule a pickup. We take the pain out of the consumer experience by managing that return process through an independent, gig-economy workforce.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

When we decided the market was ready for this kind of service, we realized no one was linking these aspects of the industry together. They built an aggressive sprint schedule to get both native applications for iOS and Android out by Q3 of 2019.

What is the team composition?

We worked with an account manager, a project manager, a business analyst, a UI/UX designer, an iOS designer, an Android designer, and a backend developer.

How did you come to work with Yalantis?

We drafted the specifications and looked at a number of global software development companies that could develop this with quality, cost, and expediency. They met all our requirements, and their documents were very impressive. After meeting their team, they seemed like the right fit for us.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent approximately $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project ran from September 2018-May 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our biggest KPI is downloads. We market via social media and are branching out into AdWords. We did go back to them to enable Facebook analytics in the app, but they weren't involved in our marketing. We did finish below budget, and they delivered the finished product ahead of schedule. We learned a lot, and they helped us bridge the gap as we built this first-in-market app.

How did Yalantis perform from a project management standpoint?

They were stellar project managers. We had regularly scheduled calls for sprints, and we were very happy with how they handled the project.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were easy to work with, and we had a very good relationship with them. They were friendly, and we liked the partnership.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We used Account Kit, which is a customer sign on and verification. That funnel is something we plan to do away with, and I would rather we just used the existing Facebook login. It leaves some room for error, so we plan to make some changes for the second version. That's a decision we made together, but it wasn't successful.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have detailed specifications and have a team member work on project management and software development on your side. They are very sophisticated and detailed, so an intermediary on your side will help you focus on your business needs. They deal well with the initial development of a project, but I'm not sure of their capabilities on an ad hoc level.

Feedback summary: 

The Yalantis team’s diligent work ethic allows them to deliver high-quality products by their estimated deadline. The team is both organized and flexible, communicating openly and accommodating all requests. They’re very customer-oriented and committed to each project.

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 president of a software development firm. We’ve found our own niche in the market where we create and build large-scale solutions and platforms and become an equity partner in those products, allowing us to reduce our rates and decrease the overall cost of the build. Basically, we take the place of an internal development team in our clients’ businesses, and they pay us internal rates.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Yalantis?

I needed additional talent and resources to scale my team while staying within our budget restrictions.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’ve worked with them on several projects for different clients at this point, but we generally follow the same process. My team handles the design in-house, and we share a clickable prototype with Yalantis though InVision. They do their own discovery phase to learn more about the client’s business and their technical requirements; then they analyze the UI elements and flow of the prototype. From there, it’s a lot of back-and-forth discussion. We incorporate their feedback on our original design and make small changes until everyone is on the same page. We choose the technology, cloud structure, and hosting services to use, and augment development between our team and theirs.

Once they’ve built the solution, they share it with us for testing. They have a QA person that reviews each element as they work, but we handle the final testing process. After looking the product over, we request any bug fixes, modification, or updates. Yalantis willingly makes the changes and sends us the final version. Usually, they provide a small team for ongoing support. Their team is heavily involved from start to finish in the development aspects of our clients’ projects.

Currently, we’re working with Yalantis to build an application for large education enterprises like public school systems or large childcare chains. When finished, it will be a full suite that connects students, parents, teachers, school board representatives, and the organization’s corporate body.

What is the team composition?

I’ve worked with a variety of people from Yalantis, including project management personnel, developers, analysts, and QA resources. For the daycare platform specifically, we have a fantastic and organized project manager, a smart business analyst, a Node.js developer, two frontend developers, two iOS developers, and two Android developers.

How did you come to work with Yalantis?

I own a different business that runs a local event listings WordPress site, and we were looking to build a corresponding set of native Android and iOS apps. We hired a different company initially, but we weren’t happy in the partnership, so we decided to switch vendors. I searched for an overseas team, and eventually landed on Yalantis. I was very happy with their performance on that first project, so I modified the business model for this business to include the Yalantis team’s assistance. We’ve been working together ever since. They’re just as, if not more, reliable than our local development options.

How much have you invested with them?

We’re paying $275,000 for the daycare project. In total, we’ve probably spent $1.2 million on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working on the daycare project in February 2018, and we plan to launch the beta version late this quarter or early next quarter. The first project we ever worked on with them was in February 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Their most notable accomplishment relates to a different project. A client was facing a Congressional investigation because their software had caused issues around the time of the 2018 primary elections. The software had been developed by a different contractor, and they came to us to fix it. The legacy system took two years to build, but with the help of Yalantis, we were able to rewrite it within three months.

How did Yalantis perform from a project management standpoint?

They manage their work excellently. We have daily standups and chat consistently over Slack. I have direct access to their entire team. The project manager handles high-level items like planning and billing to make sure we’re always moving forward. For strategic and technical discussions, we go straight to the development resources. They’re free to ask us direct questions without an intermediary. They have excellent English all things considered.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I haven’t seen a vendor work as efficiently as Yalantis using the agile methodology. We’ve worked with large organizations that have hundreds of developers, scrum masters, and project managers, and they still don’t compare. The Yalantis team understands that every customer and every project is a bit different. They expertly balance flexibility with organization, accommodating every project’s unique requirements, but still following a strict process that ensures they deliver quality results on time.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Quickly assigning resources to new projects can be a challenge. That’s not necessarily a weakness because it’s a common challenge throughout the development industry. Staffing a team is always a rushed process because everyone wants to get to work as fast as possible with the best resources possible.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the co-founder of Moja Market. We're the first super app to be introduced in Africa.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Yalantis?

We needed help with the Android development of our app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They're overseeing the Android development. We developed the UI and UX, overall architecture, and most of the backend in-house. We are a multi-function app with an e-commerce platform that includes a payment option. Yalantis handled the payment integration very effectively, working collaboratively with us and letting us know about potential issues. We began with an Android application because that is our principal market, but we're also planning to develop an iOS version with them in the future.

What is the team composition?

I mostly work with their project manager and an account manager, but they have about 11 people in total assigned to our project.

How did you come to work with Yalantis?

Our CTO worked with them previously and had a very positive experience.

How much have you invested with them?

By the time we have an MVP, it'll be a little over $150,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

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

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We're going through the first phase of alpha testing. Our internal team has been very impressed with the functionality of the app.

How did Yalantis perform from a project management standpoint?

They're excellent communicators and provided us with all the documentation. We use Slack, Skype, Zoom, and email to stay in touch. They've been very accessible, often responding after hours if there is a pressing question. They're based in Ukraine, but we haven't had any complaints. They're so driven to make our project a success that they feel like part of our team.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We're a small team, so we were looking for a partner rather than just a contractor. They look at our project as a partnership and always make sure we're fully satisfied with their services. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I couldn't have asked for anything more. It's been a wonderful experience.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Because of the time difference, you have to consider that there might be early phone calls, but they've been very flexible and made things easy for us.

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 Half Cost Hotels. We’re an online travel agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Yalantis?

My partners and I have solid technology backgrounds, but we wanted to bring in expert-level coders to develop our site. We initially hired Yalantis for their frontend design prowess. However, the engagement evolved into a more comprehensive project.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Yalantis began the development process by working with us to establish a project scope. We gave them as much information as we could over the phone to communicate how we wanted the design to look. We also sent links to existing websites, even some outside of the travel industry, to demonstrate our vision. They essentially approached the project from scratch and provided a mind map that detailed the scope. My partners and I looked it over and made some minor changes, but we mostly stayed true to their original design.

Yalantis’s team is currently building out the front- and backend of the website per the agreed upon outline. They’re using Ruby on Rails and a host of other technologies to create a custom platform. We have bi-weekly calls with them to discuss development issues and review feature demonstrations. The project is set to total around 10–11 programming sprints before the site is complete. They make sure to send detailed reports of each sprint upon completion.

What is the team composition?

We primarily interact with three resources including a project manager and a requirement analyst. However, we occasionally speak with their design and development leads, respectively. In that sense, we work with a total of five people from their team.

How did you come to work with Yalantis?

I was doing market research on the travel industry and stumbled upon an article they’d written about online travel agencies. I followed the article to their site and realized that were web developers. That happened to take place around the time we were looking for a development firm, so I decided to reach out. Our relationship continued from there.

How much have you invested with them?

The finished project will likely cost upwards of $150,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We first contacted them in January 2018 and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re all blown away with what they’ve been able to produce on the frontend. We can tell their inspiration comes from what we’ve provided, but they’ve also taken the project in a new direction. We appreciate that level of creativity. My internal team is currently tapping into the site’s backend to test the durability of the platform. That process is ongoing, but I haven’t heard any bad news thus far.

How did Yalantis perform from a project management standpoint?

Our contacts regularly communicate with us via phone and email. We also utilize Slack on a daily basis. Each person has a different role and they’re forthcoming about who they manage. It’s been a smooth process so far and they’ve performed admirably.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their product is great and they perform as advertised. Combine that with their excellent customer service and it’s been a fantastic experience.

Are there any areas they could improve?

A slight language barrier can create the occasional miscommunication, but overall they’re skilled communicators.

Feedback summary: 

The project was completed within the relatively modest budget and demonstrates high-quality development and good attention to detail. The team communicated well and ensured that they carefully tracked and monitored their deliverables.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Mikitsune is a digital solution for parents. We connect them with businesses offering activities, events, and classes with one app for scheduling, paying, and getting reminders.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Yalantis?

I'd designed the app and was looking for a team to take full responsibility for its development, the backend, and the CMS. I also wanted a team who would advise me technically.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a clean code and a final product that's loyal to the design. We were looking for a fluid user journey and high quality.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I looked for digital agencies on Clutch and LinkedIn, and found Yalantis on Clutch. Their portfolio included a ticketing app, which added value. After a few emails, we finally came to an agreement.

Describe the project in detail.

They understood my needs and helped me prioritize and simplify some of the features in order to get clean results within my limited budget. The app includes a listing algorithm, tickets, and a sales platform.

What was the team composition?

We were assigned a project manager who stayed with us throughout the project. The team was made up of seven other members: an account manager, an iOS Developer, a backend developer, an architect, a recruitment analyst, and a QA.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The release on the App Store was very smooth. We've received very positive feedback from our audience, who say that the app is smooth and very easy to navigate.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The project manager who handled our project was very professional. Everything was clarified, from the first quotation onwards and the work was divided into biweekly milestones. I was then able to test the app and give my feedback. The communication was smooth, with a few small bumps when we were running out of time, but that's normal. We used Slack as our daily chat tool.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team is patient and professional. The scenario sheet was very detailed and we had a feedback sheet to discuss issues that could be a bit vague. They also gave me advice on some marketing tools to use.

Are there any areas for improvement?

With the budget we had, it was a challenge to create such a good product. I look forward to making further improvements, but that's the continuous cycle of technology.

Feedback summary: 

The project is in progress but, so far, Yalantis has succeeded in creating a user-friendly app. They exceeded expectations in the thoughtful detail they included in the backend. They were collaborative in making helpful suggestions and illuminating possible difficulties during development.

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 technology manager for the Let’s Do It Foundation, an Estonian NGO organizing a worldwide cleanup action on the September 15th, 2018. The aim is to engage local communities and groups to clean up mismanaged waste in their neighborhoods.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Yalantis?

We need to know where trash is located prior to our event. We need tools to collect data, and we are building a mobile app for this purpose. The app allows users to mark trash points and create events.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Yalantis is developing a mobile and web app that allows every user globally to map trash points and create events. There are also options for country admins who can manage trash points and events remotely. Mobile app users need to be on-site when mapping trash.

Their responsibility is to deliver a user-friendly mobile app with a clear visual design that makes it easy to understand how to map trash points and create events. Our aim is to engage the community and make them aware of cleanup events and where they can participate in cleaning during this event.

We completed a previous version of the mobile app in September 2017. We wanted to improve it, adding an event functionality. We provided the existing architecture, code, and descriptions through GitHub, as well as wireframes and partly-designed development tasks. Based on this, Yalantis created milestones and detailed estimations. They offered suggestions on how we could improve the UI and more. The app was developed using the React Native framework. It will allow us to launch the app for Android, iOS, and web.

What is the team composition?

The size of the team depended on the task. We’ve worked with 7–8 people from their side.

How did you come to work with Yalantis?

One of our team members is very aware of new approaches and different companies worldwide. I don’t know how he found Yalantis, but he suggested them to us. We saw their portfolio, and their mobile apps looked great. We visited them at their office.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent €80,000–€100,000 ($93,000–$117,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

The work started in January 2018. The first part has been developed. We will release the full functionality at the end of June 2018. The collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We first approached Yalantis based on their portfolio. We liked their easily-understandable UI design. They fulfilled our expectations completely. We’ve been happy with them and with the amount of detail put into the backend. I believe that the current app will be much more stable than the old version.

How did Yalantis perform from a project management standpoint?

They are very responsive. The project manager is very specific and gives lots of feedback. It’s been good working with them. We use Slack where we can ask questions directly to the developers or designers.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are solution-oriented, and it’s felt easy for me to work with them. They suggest new approaches and point out potential risks or problems that we weren’t aware of. Yalantis has adopted the product as their own, and we are working together as one team.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

I recommend being open and flexible. Customers may sometimes want something that is not reasonable to have in terms mobile apps.

Feedback summary: 

Yalantis completed a high-quality MVP, bringing positive feedback in regard to the UI/UX. The app already has paying customers benefitting from it. The team is dependable and flexible to fluctuations in staffing needs, and they manage the project with efficiency and a good balance of communication.

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 Optima Curis which provides a patient engagement and collaboration platform called eCuris. We combine social networks with patient engagement technology.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Yalantis?

We were building an MVP version of the eCuris platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We have built a sizeable platform application with Yalantis. This responsive web app works on desktop and mobile devices. It’s a Slack-like collaboration platform for the patient, their family, and the care team. It allows users to send surveys and other material for symptom tracking, quality of service, and patient satisfaction. The concept of social networks and moderated communities is meant to keep people informed and engaged on health topics and to connect with other people facing similar issues.

Yalantis developed and built the platform from scratch using custom technologies. The concept of the UI also started with them. We used custom technologies in order to have the right level of flexibility in the future. We invested in building an extendable foundation platform.

The UX design allows people to collaborate with each other. The app presents different information depending on whether it’s being used by patients or doctors. The design allows the same application to be used by different users of the system, but they get different experiences based on the data driving the app.

We’ve gone through pilots, and we currently have a live production version with paying customers. We have an extensive roadmap for our vision, and we are prioritizing additional features. Yalantis is working on designing, developing, and rolling those out. We have a single instance for the global customer base hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

What is the team composition?

Yalantis modifies their team composition based on current needs. This is one of the economics of outsourcing to them. The team has flexed from three up to 10–15 FTEs. We’re currently in the development phase, using a dedicated team of six people.

We’ve collaborated a lot on some of the designs with the requirements analysis people. We’ve also worked with the project and account managers and development specialists.

How did you come to work with Yalantis?

We found them through online research. Yalantis built apps that were featured in a top 10 best apps of the year from a UI/UX point of view. One of the reasons we chose them was for their reputation for creating compelling UI/UX designs.

How much have you invested with them?

The total cost has been around $500,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The initial design discussions were started in September 2016. The minimal viable product took a year to complete. The work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve received very good feedback on the UI/UX, look-and-feel, and intuitiveness of the app from users and during demonstrations. Having a good user interface is important for the adoption of the product, which bodes well for the future of our product.

How did Yalantis perform from a project management standpoint?

We are very comfortable with their documentation process, templates, and technology used. They keep us informed and engaged if we want it to be, without making an unnecessary burden on us. We have a very good balance in terms of interactions.

There’s not a lot of overlap in our time zones. We have weekly calls and multiple calls per week during heavy design periods. We also communicate by Slack and email. We make the time zone difference work to our advantage, given that they work while we’re sleeping. We have an efficient way of working together.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The level of expertise within the team is very high. They’ve recruited and retained experienced people who are motivated to get the job done.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Whenever we’ve asked them to take a different approach, they were responsive to us. They’re working exactly how we want.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

They are a straightforward company, and they do what they say they’re going to do. I recommend them.

Feedback summary: 

The team at Yalantis is accessible, prompt, and responsive to all project demands. Their newest app update has resulted in improved user satisfaction, and they always deliver clean, well-structured code.

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 for BodyBarista, a U.S.-patented fitness app for iPhone that helps users track their progress via image analysis and data calculations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Yalantis?

We started out developing our app with freelancers but they weren’t available as often as we needed them, so we decided to look for a dedicated development company.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our first step involved discussing UI/UX design. I didn’t want to influence Yalantis too much at the outset, so I asked them to interpret the description of what we wanted the app to do and they came back to us with wireframes and sketches.

Once we had the vision for the final app, they started on the iOS development. We chose to build a native app because we needed so much integration with the hardware and the camera. They did a great job of structuring the app so the front- and backend functions synchronized seamlessly for a good user experience. Since this is a fitness results app, it was critical for us that the data was stored and displayed correctly, since those measurements serve as a user progress diary. They worked a lot on making it smooth and well managed.

After the app was ready, they spent a lot of time on QA, inputting test images and letting the algorithms analyze the data in order to spot any bugs. Since we put the app on the market, they’ve been helping us to update features and improve the design based on user feedback.

What is the team composition?

The team has around six or seven people in total, but my main points of contact are the project manager, designer, and then the front- and backend developers.

How did you come to work with Yalantis?

I found them via online search and contacted them directly.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $40,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in December 2016 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have a lot of users and we’ve received a lot of positive feedback now that we’ve gone from being a pure camera app to being a measurement app.

How did Yalantis perform from a project management standpoint?

We use Skype and Slack to keep in touch and they’re very responsive. The project manager does a good job making sure I always know what’s in the pipeline for the next few weeks. I’m also able to contact the developers directly, which is a really nice second layer of communication.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Of all the iOS developers I’ve worked with, Yalantis is the best by far. The code is excellent, they keep it clean and structured. They’re responsive and they use the correct principles in order to make updates.
