The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Senior Product Development Manager of Orbiton Company. Our business is based on developing psychometric software. Our main objective is the development of innovative software apps that are required by different companies. Online tests are conducted through our software comprising around 15 minutes.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Zazz?

Our main challenge was dealing with the bugs in the development of software. We were in search of an app development company which was more expert and professional and can help us in modifying and improving our software.

What were your goals for this project?

As we already knew that there were a lot of bugs in our software and our goal was revitalizing our existing software for making it a consistent product

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

One of Zazz developers and our employee had a familiar friend, and he suggested us to consider Zazz for our project. After our first meeting, we were highly convinced by their professionalism. They reviewed our software thoroughly and recommended us to rebuild some of the apps in future.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We have been working with them on multiple projects for web & mobile platforms involving react native, angular & node.js. We also use their QA engineers for automation & manual testing using Selenium and JMeter.

What was the team composition?

There were eight members in total assigned to the project and a project manager responsible for supervising all of the activities.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Their work has impressed us incredibly as we are working with them for more than five years and haven't encountered a single bug since then. Our uptime percentage has improved tremendously, which has made our clients very happy. There are no complaints from our clients about the bugs or crashes, and we haven't required any maintenance after partnering with Zazz.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The workflow was handy as it helped us in sharing our issues and their suggestions instantly. We have used emails and social media platforms for interaction. Moreover, bi-monthly meetings were also an essential part of the whole project to test the new developments.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their young and energetic staff is the most critical factor for us. Zazz always comes up with smart solutions for our problems and tries to solve them in less time.

Are there any areas for improvement?

They are working in a highly protocoled manner, and I suggest them to work with the same passion. We have decided to continue our work with them in the future as the whole journey was smooth and without any trouble.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Zazz communicated well and listened to feedback in order to optimize the partnership. Their work was of good quality and had few bugs. They could’ve been faster at gathering project requirements, but the partnership was still good.

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 chief product officer at a startup that offers a Bluetooth-enabled smoker.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Zazz?

We needed a partner to develop an iOS and Android app that worked on both mobile devices and iPads. We also wanted someone who could build the backend system for our product.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The app they built allows users to control a Bluetooth-enabled smoker from their phone.  Users can turn the barbecue on and off, adjust the temperature, and set a timer based on doneness. They integrated a feature that allows the app to send push notifications when the meat is done. Besides development, they also did the UX/UI of the app and designed our logo, as well. They built the test cases for the mobile apps, and testers from their team and ours are doing QA. For the backend, they integrated it with Magento to manage the orders on the e-commerce store, which will launch soon.

How did you come to work with Zazz?

We knew one of their developers through a friend. We interviewed a few different candidates, but Zazz was the best option.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between $50,000–$199,999.

What is the status of this engagement?

The partnership lasted from October 2018–March 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Zazz has done a much better job than many other firms I’ve worked with. So far, there’ve been few bugs in the product.

How did Zazz perform from a project management standpoint?

The communication was transparent, and they consistently met deadlines. We used Slack to communicate.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were process oriented and took our feedback seriously.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could shorten their requirements-gathering process to start the project sooner.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Have your requirements set before you engage with them.
