ZenDev completed a migration from Magento 1 Enterprise to Magento 2 Commerce for Northerner in 2017. This was a challenging project due to a large database with over 160 000 customers and over 1000 products. But in the end it was a succesful project and Northerner could enjoy all the new features of Magento 2.

Since then ZenDev have been assisting Northerner with their e-commerce, working with various projects

such as integrating external apis, improving performance and connecting multiple warehouses.

Feedback summary: 

ZenDev AB’s outstanding collaboration style and deft grasp of complex technology inspired the client to extend the engagement. The partnership now encompasses the most substantial and challenging project to date. Ever level of the team is highly involved. A strategic workflow maximizes productivity. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the head of IT for Zynka BIM, an IT tech company trying to help the construction industry to digitize.
 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ZenDev AB?

I’m the only one in my company with programming and web knowledge. We got in contact with ZenDev AB to help us scale up our technical resources.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’ve worked together on projects for various business cases. ZenDev ABimproved our homepage with Laravel. They also developed a more advanced platform that allows us to perform complex functionalities. 

Our team handles the design internally. We send sketches to show the team our desired look and feel. ZenDev AB performs all the coding and fixes every error. They’ve helped us build standard websites using HTML and CSS as well as ones with frameworks like Angular. A specific project they supported was for what we call a “BLM portal.”

We’re currently working on our biggest collaboration so far. The project is for a Swedish company that helps people create smart homes for elders. ZenDev AB is helping us implement live indoor tracking with face recognition and IoT sensors. A web dashboard offers access to the entire system. Recently, we started creating a mobile app for iOS and Android. 

What is the team composition? 

ZenDev AB has grown considerably since we first met them. At first, we were only connected with Senad (CTO, ZenDev AB) and Nikola (CEO, ZenDev AB). We’re still mostly in touch with Senad, but now we also have a dedicated project manager. 

I also have the option to speak directly with the programmers when we need to fix issues like a software bug. We communicate with every level of their team, more or less. Now that we’re running our most significant project yet with them, many people are involved from both sides.

How did you come to work with ZenDev AB?

A member of our company went to university with someone from ZenDev AB. We contacted them about working together.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent slightly above $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with ZenDev AB at the end of 2017. Our collaboration is ongoing. The deadline for our current project, the largest one so far, is May 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Having our team design and ZenDev AB program products has worked out nicely. We’ve gotten a lot of great responses to the web page we built together.

As we worked on the BLM portal with ZenDev AB, we saw progress in key numbers we track and received strong feedback as the project progressed. Now that it’s finished, we’ve received value from that product.

How did ZenDev AB perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management has gone well. We tend to talk with the CTO the most because he speaks Swedish. I haven’t seen any hindrances or obstacles anywhere. 

ZenDev AB implemented JIRA as part of our workflow, which was previously unfamiliar to us.  We use it to manage all the tasks for our extensive current project.

What did you find most impressive about them?

ZenDev AB works closely with our team. Communication is their greatest strength. They always maintain an open dialogue. 

During meetings with my coworker and I, we have productive planning discussions, and the CTO presents all the relevant information. Since I’m the only one on my team with a technical background, we rely on ZenDev AB to plan all our projects from start to finish. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of anything.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

ZenDev AB is a strong company that gets things done. Staying on the same page always enables us to develop exceptional deliverables together.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Their work always leads to successful outcomes, whether they’re involved with API integrations or migrations to Magento. ZenDev AB can work within tight timelines and their drive to constantly learn and grow offsets their lack of high-level senior developers. They’re also very affordable.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the IT manager for an e-commerce company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ZenDev AB?

We were looking for a company that could do customizations for us using Magento.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

ZenDev AB provides development support for our e-commerce website. They do special Magento customizations and adjust the e-commerce platform in a way that might not be supported by Magento. The customization work can be quite complex at times, so we find solutions together and work out how the customization can be brought to reality.

They continue to help with development support and building out new features. They provide general maintenance and are involved in several long-term projects.

What is the team composition?

We have one main project lead in charge of a team of seven developers. There are two backend developers, two frontend developers, one SEO specialist, and two junior developers.

How did you come to work with ZenDev AB?

A personal acquaintance referred ZenDev AB to us. They were a cost-efficient choice.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between $30,000–$40,000 every month.

What is the status of this engagement?

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

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve had two projects related to third-party logistic integrations. Since we moved our warehouse to a new location, we tasked ZenDev AB with some of the API integration and connecting it to Magento. Our projects together were successful even though their time frame was limited. We didn’t have to make too many adjustments after going live.

How did ZenDev AB perform from a project management standpoint?

They develop at the speed you’d expect. Though there have been projects that were scheduled a little too optimistically and we had to review the time estimations. We communicate via Jira, Bitbucket, and Slack.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their project leader and customer account managers have a way of understanding both the e-commerce parts and the business logic, seeing beyond just the code. They can provide helpful feedback and give ideas for making our systems more efficient.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their team is still at a junior level. If clients are looking for a senior developer with over 10 years of experience, they probably won’t find it with them. That said, however, ZenDev AB is hungry to learn more. They’re good if you’re looking for a cost-efficient solution.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It’s important to be clear about the project description and details to avoid miscommunication.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the president of an employment platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ZenDev AB?

We're building a job search platform and we needed more development resources.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

ZenDev is using Java, ElasticSearch, Solr, and a variety of other technologies to help us improve our job search engine and aggregate jobs off the Internet. They ingest millions of posts every day and apply a search to them.

What is the team composition?

We work directly with two of their senior developers.

How did you come to work with ZenDev AB?

I met one of their owners on a plane. After I visited their office in Bosnia, I decided they'd be a good fit for us.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent about $200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in 2017, and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our job search has improved significantly since we engaged ZenDev. We haven't gone live yet, so we don't have much feedback.

How did ZenDev AB perform from a project management standpoint?

We mostly use Google Meet and Slack to stay in touch and they've been very responsive. They're often available after hours and work overtime (they don't charge us extra money for working overtime).

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re very flexible and transparent. If the developers that they assign to us don't work out, they're happy to provide other resources, while giving different projects to the developers we couldn't work with (instead of letting them go).

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, everything has been perfect.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be patient and don’t expect progress immediately. Give them some time, and you'll see the results.
