Feedback summary: 

While the web app has only just launched, the final product met the needs and requirements of the internal team. Zealous System effectively manages projects through clean and open communication. The team provides a smooth workflow and consistently collaborates with the client.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY) is a small, private college in the NYC metro area. We cater to adult, minority students with flexible programs and extensive academic and personal support. Many of our students transfer from other colleges, often at the last minute. I am the Assistant Director of Technology for Enterprise Systems.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Zealous System?

Our process of evaluating transfer credits from other schools was fully manual and based on paper or PDF forms. Employee A would look at transcripts and map out the credits on a form, send the document to various approvers, and eventually Employee B would key the final document into the PowerCampus student information system (duplication of effort, since Employee A already keyed it once).

The entire process was slow enough that it couldn't be completed before students registered for classes, meaning that advisors had to cross-reference multiple documents in order to know which classes a student should take. Knowing which students had transfer credits in process was nearly impossible; this had knock-on effects for many other processes.

What were your goals for this project?

Digitize and speed up the entire transfer credit process. Eliminate re-keying of transfer credits. Integrate with our Admissions CRM (Slate) and central SIS (PowerCampus). Allow Admissions to quickly mock up transfer credit evaluations with a student and compare how credits would transfer to different programs, then push one mockup through the entire process until officially approved by the registrar, at which point the credits are instantly inserted into the SIS.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found Zealous via their website. We compared them to several US-based vendors and found the latter prohibitively expensive. We contacted several existing clients of Zealous and heard good things both about the quality of their work and their ability to work internationally (timezones, English language, etc.).

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

MCNY already had a project design with flowcharts, wireframes, etc.; we submitted this to Zealous for a bid; they pointed out some problems and asked for various clarifications. We then negotiated a contract and they began work right away. Zealous first created a dummy UI; we were impressed with their graphic design.

Once we approved the style, Zealous deployed iterative builds on our servers; we tested and provided feedback. The first two builds took several weeks to develop and included major changes. Towards the end of the process, builds had minor changes - small feature tweaks, bug resolutions, typo corrections, etc.

We were very impressed with the speed of development. Partway through the process our end users submitted additional requirements and feature ideas not in the original plans; we submitted a change order to Zealous at a very reasonable cost.

What was the team composition?

I worked with two individuals at Zealous - a project manager and a managing director. The director handled contracts, invoices, etc. Everything else went through the project manager, who was very responsive at all times.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We recently deployed the application in our live environment and have not had time to evaluate its impact yet.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project manager engaged me in weekly Zoom meetings for a time and then we sent regular emails back and forth. I was exceptionally pleased with how efficiently meetings were conducted. No time was wasted and we did not engage in endless bureaucratic make-work.

The project took longer than it should have, but that was our fault. Every time we submitted a problem, Zealous resolved it in days - often less than a day. Nearly all delays were on our end as we tried to wrangle busy staffers to test the application.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The US dev shops we spoke with all wanted to take responsibility for all phases of the project, including design (at significant additional time and cost). However, we already had experience with in-house software development and had a detailed design. Zealous was the only vendor willing to accept as much or a little responsibility as we wished to outsource.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I don't believe Zealous had much prior experience with American higher ed. This led to occasional misunderstandings because they were unfamiliar with terms and processes that we assumed were common knowledge. Both sides could improve here. Also, our lawyers wanted many changes to their English-language contract; Zealous was easy to work with on this point.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Managing Director of a property services organisation who works with investors by providing research, due diligence and a consultative approach. We have a national and international reach, serving clients around the world.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Zealous System?

We engaged the team at Zealous initially to build out the website an bespoke features including a partner portal. We have since used them to create and edit landing pages and other marketing collateral used by the company.

What were your goals for this project?

We were looking to drive enquiry to the website and use the landing pages in connection with various marketing programs we launched with partner companies.

The work Zealous delivered allowed us to execute on these goals as we have seen a big increase in visitors and have been able to streamline client engagement through the use of the landing pages.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We searched on-line for some time looking for the right creative team. Since engaging the guys at Zealous our website and marketing activities have become very easy as we regularly lean on them for support.

I must say, their after sales service is some of the best I've encountered in 25 years in business. They are responsive to questions, comments, changes and are happy to edit and re-purpose content to suit our purposes.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

Once we formally engaged the team, we were introduced to the members who would be looking after our job/s and a video conference was scheduled where they asked us many questions in order to gain a deep understanding and insight to our organisation. This was very impressive as it seemed they really cared about delivering exactly what we wanted.

They offered us as many follow up calls as we needed to ensure the brief was being followed and to input any changes we wanted as we progressed through the delivery of the jobs. On every occasion they were very punctual with their responses and more than happy to make any changes we requested, even if they were outside the brief.

What was the team composition?

I have worked with the Directors and various creatives in the organisation. They seem to share the work and responsibilities which to me indicates the Directors trust and have confidence in their teams. We found this to be true.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Website traffic has increased 10 x and our client engagement process has been streamlined, leading to higher close rates and more revenue for us. On-going support has been outstanding, no job has been too small or difficult and they have always been happy to action any changes quickly and efficiently.

Now they have a deep understanding of our business it is even easier to communicate our ideas and they execute with little fuss.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow we experienced along with the talent and their teams ability to execute meant we never waited long for a job to be completed. Lines of communication were always open and we received quick responses to each enquiry, every time.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Efficiency, attention to detail, talent and a genuine interest in our company are things that stand out the most. I also found their pricing the be very fair and they have always been happy to go the extra mile after the job has been completed. I am incredibly happy with the service we have received.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Not as far as I can see.

The team has been fluid, but we’ve had one main point of contact throughout the project. They’ve also brought in day-to-day and specialist resources as well. 

How did you come to work with Zealous System?

They were recommended to us by the team who did the wireframes. 

How much have you invested with them?

We spend about £1,000 per month ($1,260 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them in November 2018, and our engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Zealous System has been really good in terms of responsiveness, professionalism, and trust. We’re very pleased with them. We’re very happy with the final product and the level of quality we’re getting

How did Zealous System perform from a project management standpoint?

Our point of contact is very knowledgeable. He understands the business problem and asks the right questions. Their communication is excellent. We use Skype, and the scheduling is very flexible. When I send them requests, they deliver almost immediately.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Zealous System is a flexible resource you can depend on. When we have specialist needs, they have resources that they can call on. Additionally, the continuity of staff has been great, too. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could offer a few more ideas. Some of their development logic can also be improved in terms of their code governance. In the beginning, some of the code wasn’t the best, but since we talked to them about it, we’ve seen an improvement in quality.  

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

My approach has been perfect for what I need. I haven’t scoped out large portions of the project. In fact, I’ve given them drip feeds and smaller requirements which allows me to see the progress and pace of the delivery.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the founder of a consulting firm. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Zealous System?

I hired them for web development.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted to build a user-friendly website that served as a resource for our clients and followers.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They approached me after I posted a brief on a freelance-hiring platform.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

They were supposed to build a website membership functionality that provided useful content to prospective clients. The website was meant to include newsletter opt-in, content protection, site login, and registration functionalities.

What was the team composition?

They provided a web developer and sales manager. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The project had a negative impact since visitors and prospective clients were unable to log into my site.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

They managed the project poorly. They consistently missed deadlines, and the lead developer was often unavailable, which resulted in delays.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I have little positive to say about my experience with Zealous System, aside from the fact that they successfully migrated the data and content from my old site into WordPress.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

They failed to execute the functionalities agreed upon in the scope of work. The code they created kept breaking down. Many clients and site visitors complained about a confusing registration process even though I had flagged this issue with Zealous System multiple times. They never fixed it despite going back and forth for over 12 months.

To make matters worse, they left most of the testing to me rather than taking the lead and ensuring that no errors existed. I regularly found sloppy errors, typos, and design flaws. They also refused to acknowledge their mistakes when my next team summarized the errors in their code.

Working with Zealous System was hugely time-consuming and a big waste of money. I will never work with them again, and I would recommend that others steer clear of them.

I’m the owner and manager of SeeVirtu.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Zealous System?

We needed a partner to build our website.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I created an outline of the requirements and then worked with Zealous System to fine-tune them and make them functional. The platform is a scheduling system for dentists to organize and book hygienists online. I showed Zealous System a few sites I wanted mine to look like, and they built a unique WordPress site, using PHP. We just finished up phase one and are moving into phase two.

What is the team composition?

They have a project manager and a dedicated team.

How did you come to work with Zealous System?

I put out a request on LinkedIn and had 12 companies contact me. I then narrowed that down until Zealous System was the winner. They communicated quickly and were organized and affordable, so I hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since June 2018.

Those who have seen the site say it looks nice and unique. It’s easy to navigate and will bring in lots of traffic.

How did Zealous System perform from a project management standpoint?

I have a busy schedule, but they always try to reach out to me to keep things moving along. We used Skype and InVision to communicate.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have excellent project management. They make it extremely easy to communicate and understand their processes.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Zealous System offers strong process-based delivery accompanied by thorough documentation. They can be counted on to deliver high quality that satisfies both internal team members and customers. As a Microsoft Gold Partner, this cooperative team delivers expert-level talent and skills.

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 associate VP at Annet Technologies. We’re a software development and knowledge process outsourcing (KPO) company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Zealous System?

We have a healthcare customer in the U.S. that we’ve been working with since 2008. Business has increased in the last couple of years. This year has been fantastic for us, but we are short on skill sets and the workload has increased. We needed an ongoing technology partner to help us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They allocate .NET development resources to us on a case-by-case basis. The healthcare system in the U.S. has requirements and policies so we have to depend on tools to work on those systems. They use Microsoft technologies like .NET, C#, SQL, and other technologies like Java. We are also doing some Magento open-source work with them.

What is the team composition?

There are three FTE resources on their side.

How did you come to work with Zealous System?

We were referred to them. We started by using them on a trial basis. They did a good job so we assigned more work to them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2018 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They work as an extension of our team to our customer. Internally, we have a mutual agreement that they have to deliver the work that they’re doing to us, and our internal project code review team checks the work they deliver. That team does manual and auto machine testing. According to our QA and code review team, they’ve done it at a satisfactory level to be delivered to the customer. Most of the time, it passed through from the first level of testing. Our customers and our team are satisfied with them. The work is on time and on budget.

How did Zealous System perform from a project management standpoint?

We got great cooperation from Zealous System. They have been great for us by providing development and support.

For our first meeting, we had a meeting at our office. We mainly use Skype and phone calls internally. When communication involves customers, we use GoToMeeting.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have great expertise. They’re a Microsoft Gold Partner. They have highly skilled resources available. They’re a process-based company, which is great for us. Everything is documented, and all the processes have been followed. It’s a positive experience and we look forward to continuing our business with them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Sometimes they should be stronger in communicating with our team. It’s not poor, but it could improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

You have to remain slightly flexible and set rigidity aside. In the long-run, it is beneficial to both partners.

Feedback summary: 

Zealous System delivered the work as specified and accomplished their objectives, but unfortunately, the app was not able to launch. The team offers friendly and enthusiastic communication, and their developer exceeded expectations by working long hours. They deliver strong value for 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.

We have a media player app. The app provides sound files, which are produced based on science. They contain binaural beats and autonomous sensory meridian response tones. These productions combined make a healthcare product. Listeners are able to calm their nerves and focus their thinking just by listening to the audio tracks. It’s a media player app that contains in-app products which are credits, and users can buy and use those credits to buy tonics in the end. Tonics are the sound files.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Zealous System?

We didn’t have the expertise to develop the app by ourselves.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’ve been helping us with our native iOS and Android app development. We also have a webpage and a backend server. We provide the content of the app, which is sound files.

We had the backbone of the app ready. The design and user interface were mostly drafted out. We provided the mock-up for them. They worked on the audio files and the media player. They tried to enhance the current app with more functionality, different designs, and better backend synchronizations. The Android SDK had major issues, which we were able to solve with them.

They embedded functionalities such as a looper which creates a seamless loop so the listener could set a sleep timer. The user can set a 40-minute play time and the sound file will loop until the time runs out. They also assisted with the draft and design of the files. We provided the designs, and they arranged them to fit into different screens and formats.

It’s an ongoing relationship with small steps and tasks as a service provider.

What is the team composition?

I had one iOS developer and one Android developer who were my main points of contact for technical questions. I worked with 2–3 other people for the project coordination, payments, and negotiating how to move on to the next step.

How did you come to work with Zealous System?

We did an online search for service providers. When we posted on Upwork, we received 20 calls in one hour. We evaluated three different developers. Zealous System made a good impression.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $2,500–$3,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2017 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have them do small steps broken down to an operational level, which they helped us achieve.

How did Zealous System perform from a project management standpoint?

We didn’t talk much about negotiations. We had a great Skype call that was insightful to get to know them better. We regularly use a Skype group that contains eight people. Most of the time, we have quick discussions and decision-making. They were always eager to help. I’m satisfied for the most part.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We’re satisfied with their nice tone of the communication. It’s always been great talking to them frequently. The developer has gone above and beyond for us, doing one or two more hours a day because we ask him to. It’s something I consider very valuable in a service provider. They’re exceptionally friendly, and it’s a good cost/value balance.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We’ve run into two major problems with getting an app into the App Store and getting through the Apple review process. There’s never been a management decision to achieve some goals. It’s been mostly operational. We are getting rejected in the App Store because of a core feature that we have. Now, I’m questioning why no one has told us that this feature is objectionable. It was rejected based on the Apple guidelines for Apple review. I’m starting to wonder how involved they are in the big picture. Perhaps they’re only good operational support for us.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If there are specific operational tasks that need to be done, Zealous System is capable since they have allocated developers. However, a huge step in software design, constructing something that is long-lasting, is maybe not their best area.

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 a consulting firm. We provide various services to our clients, including website development and project management. We operate out of Montreal, Canada, so most of our clients are in Canada.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Zealous System?

We were looking for a company to revamp a website based on some specific requirements.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Zealous provided us with a new design proposal, which we shared with our client. They have a fabulous design team and we loved their ideas. After approval, they completely redid the architecture and coded the entire site using the Drupal CMS. They also improved the navigation, so now people can get quick information by hovering over some content rather than clicking on the link. That minimizes the waiting times because there is no need to load a new page. In addition, there are some design elements that are not noticeable to most people, but make the website look attractive: for example, the top line of the footer is slanted.

What is the team composition?

We worked with a project manager and 1–2 developers.

How did you come to work with them?

I sent a request for proposals and they were among those who responded. Their response was very quick and professional. I could see they put a lot of effort in their response and were thorough in answering our questions. That inspired confidence in me and I decided they'd be a reliable partner.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them between March–July 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We're entirely satisfied with everything, and so are our clients. Zealous did an excellent job.

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

We had an open line communication and they kept me up-to-date with the progress. We talked weekly via Skype and had video conferences.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They stand out because of the quality of their work and their professionalism. It was a great relationship and we'll be working together again.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can't think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Go ahead and get in touch with them.

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 head of products at Neil Patel Digital.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Zealous System?

They’ve built a few WordPress websites. We then wanted to migrate the previous versions to the CMS in order to have greater flexibility with the marketing frontend side.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’ve built four WordPress sites with the Divi theme and a variety of WordPress plug-ins. The first project was a redesign for our company’s subscriber site. They made minor enhancements with Ruby on Rails to improve agility and speed at a lower price point. Two other sites were for end-clients. Although most projects were relatively simple, the most complex site had about three pages and led into a web application. We expect that site to change in a few months as we grow the business.

Zealous System doesn’t do UX/UI because we complete those in-house and give them the designs. We provide wireframes via PSD (Adobe Photoshop) files. The team uses this information – particularly the navigation specifications – to scope out the projects.

What is the team composition?

The founder has been our main point of contact and project manager for the last few projects. I also interact with another principal, mostly on deals for the current project. The principal will then pass me on to the founder.

How did you come to work with Zealous System?

I worked for a startup in Sydney a few years ago when I met their managing director at the time. They helped that company with some fairly simple WordPress sites in a successful engagement. For Neil Patel Digital, I didn’t look for another vendor because I’ve never had an issue with Zealous System. They’ve been reasonably priced, and great with communication and execution.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $3,500–$4,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Zealous System in October 2017 and the relationship is ongoing. However, the collaboration is intermittent because we don’t have a constant workflow. We plan to send our two upcoming WordPress sites straight to them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We consider the partnership successful because the sites are functional and have only minor bug issues, which are unavoidable in software. Deliveries rarely contain errors as well. Furthermore, our marketing team has become more aware of Zealous System’s potential value for our clients. We may send more end-client business their way.

How did Zealous System perform from a project management standpoint?

We’ve established a good working relationship; they’re clear and transparent. We use Redmine to track progress and InVision to share mock-ups. Additionally, we access their staging environment to review development. The teams communicate via Skype on a daily basis.

Zealous System is always responsive. They hop on projects quickly and remain communicative throughout the process. We get feedback and changes in short order. They ask the right questions to ensure products meet our expectations. Everyone speaks English well, which distinguishes them from previous vendors and benefits our current international partnerships. They’ll call whenever a misunderstanding occurs to clarify the communication.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team is accessible, responsive, and quick with starting new tasks. Their approach works well with our preference for fast-paced work. Zealous System reacts to changes, requests, and testing in a dependable manner that’s refreshing, but also rare in our industry.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I can’t think of anything.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Scope the project completely beforehand and go into the engagement with a clear project outline. That way, the team can provide quick and effective service. But, Zealous System can also help with design and other project elements.
