Feedback summary: 

The platform has received positive beta reviews as well as international interest. Zignuts Technolab demonstrated sincere enthusiasm for the project and skillfully overcame a language barrier. Although they could have adhered more to deadlines, their collaborative process was highly effective.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of Quickkonnect UG, an app development company. We’re about to launch our first two products, a web and mobile app that lets people share all their contact and social media information with one another. It also allows businesses to register all the employees and create a centralized list of contact information that is synchronizable into its CRM.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Zignuts Technolab Pvt. Ltd.?

We needed someone to develop our apps for us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had the business idea, but they were responsible for developing the architecture and functionality of the app. We provided them with physical sketches and explained these over Skype calls. They built social media API’s for Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat, as well as digital calling API’s. The hardest task was to implement constant data transmission between the mobile app and the web platform.

What is the team composition?

We were primarily in contact with two people directly, but emailed with around seven or eight.

How did you come to work with Zignuts Technolab Pvt. Ltd.?

We searched for developers in Germany and the U.S., but quickly discovered that the pricing of these were ridiculous, so we looked to outsource to India. After looking at multiple review sites—including Clutch—we knew Zignuts Technolabs was the one we wanted to use.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent €60,000 (Approx. $69,600 USD)

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since August 2017, and launching our products in a week. However, it’s going to take two more years to get all our ideas integrated.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve contacted three to four internationally known businesses and they’re all interested in testing our product. We’ve only received positive feedback from beta users and our own employee.

How did Zignuts Technolab Pvt. Ltd. perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated via Skype—especially when sharing sketches—but also through email and phone calls. We had a very collaborative process, and it was nice that they had a business development office in Berlin that we could talk to. There was a bit of a language barrier, but they had two to three who were communicating with us in perfect English.

The timeframes were stretched a little longer than we expected, but it was nothing dramatic. In total, it was a week delay which didn’t hurt us or anybody else. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Many people warned us about working with Indian developers because of language barriers and the distance, but we never saw a reason to change to another developer. It felt like they were an in-house team.

They took the project and made it feel as if its theirs. They told us how excited they were to get it out and to be a part of it. We got to know each other and become friends. We felt very happy with them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The timeframes could have been adjusted a little bit, but it was nothing big.

Feedback summary: 

The app is still in testing and will launch later this year. The team managed the project very effectively across different time zones, tracking their work carefully and transparently, while being accommodating and responsive when changes were required.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

QuickKonnect provides users with a QR code, which you can scan and connect to all the social media platforms you have in common, and download contact information. I’m a co-founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Zignuts Technolab Pvt. Ltd.?

We needed to outsource mobile and app development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The mobile apps are for both iOS and Android. We gave them specifications at first, which they transcribed into wireframes and edited by our team.

Zignuts built our whole app, back- and frontend, as well as our CRM service on our website. They also programmed our whole website, including e-commerce functionalities and analytical tools. 

What is the team composition?

We started off with two project managers (one based in Germany), while the head developer was in India. We later expanded to a team of seven people across different fields like iOS and Android. Now we have a head manager who runs everything with the individual programmers.

How did you come to work with Zignuts Technolab Pvt. Ltd.?

We looked at a review website and compared firms. The ones in Europe were extremely expensive. We tried to find a solution in which we would have a local contact, but with a team in India or somewhere cheaper. We found Zignuts Technolab Pvt. Ltd. because they have a firm in Berlin. We talked with them and quickly decided to use their services. They put forward amazing proposals and were organized in a way that helped communicate their detailed plans to us. 

How much have you invested with them?

$30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

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

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re still testing the app. In mid-August we’ll be done with everything.

How did Zignuts Technolab Pvt. Ltd. perform from a project management standpoint?

The communication was perfect. They delivered updates on a bi-weekly basis. It wasn’t only us giving the specifications—we worked together and they shared their opinions with us. When they saw problems with the UI or UX, they communicated that with us so we could make changes accordingly. There were no issues meeting deadlines. There were some points they took slightly longer, but that was understandable.

The three co-founders of our business are based between the U.S. and London, so it was quite difficult with the time differences, but they agreed to work in the middle of the night to make calls. They’re extremely flexible and open to everything. If they didn’t know about the project, they’d research and find a solution until it works.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They sent us summaries of what they were doing every morning and then what was actually completed at the end of the day, with images and proof. In the beginning, we were a bit skeptical. They wanted to prove us wrong. They were very transparent, which helped ease our worries about outsourcing. It was incredible.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The only improvement is to integrate their whole team a little more into the process. The language barrier is a minor issue.

Feedback summary: 

The project has been praised by large accounting firms for its innovation. The Zignuts team spared no resources and dedicated itself to the project’s success. The services module has been introduced to registries around the world.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the managing director of AlphaSeas, a specialist strategy and advisory firm focused on the maritime industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Zignuts Technolab Pvt. Ltd.?

We looked to create an integrated distributed ledger system for marine assets and services powered by the Ethereum virtual machine. We needed outside assistance to manage the end-to-end development process for the frontend, backend CRM, and blockchain programming.

What were your goals for this project?

This project was to be the pioneer in applying distributed ledger technologies to solving problems in capital structures in the maritime marketplace. We wanted to develop a responsive frontend design that would attract new customers. We hoped to provide a blockchain-powered marketplace solution with an easy-to-use UX to educate new customers who were unfamiliar with blockchain technologies.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Zignuts was chosen from a group of four initial vendors we approached. They came highly recommended from a business acquaintance who had previously launched a successful project with their assistance. Zignuts was chosen over the others due to the speed of responses to our preliminary questions, a competitive quote, and a favorable recommendation.

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

Zignuts developed our frontend interface and backend CRM module and set up the blockchain architecture. They completed the backend programming for blockchain processes and integrated it with the frontend. A dynamic administrator module was formed to upload assets and services onto our marketplace. Finally, they conducted a social media campaign prior to our launch. The complexities of our project were managed with Go, Solidity, Truffle Framework, OpenZeppelin, Ethereum Blockchain, JavaScript, Node.js, Express.js, Passport.js, web3.js, PHP/Laravel, jQuery, and JQuery UI, HTML5, CSS3, and Bootstrap.

What was the team composition?

The project team had seven members—three from our side and four from Zignuts—throughout the process. Our board was responsible for coordinating the project and approving team members.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have successfully become the world’s first distributed ledger platform for maritime assets and services. We have achieved our goal for seed-round funding upon completion of the project. We have introduced the services module to various registries around the world to apply blockchain-powered solutions to their processes. And we have been recognized by one of the Big 4 accounting firms as having one of the most innovative projects in the Fintech space for 2018.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We met all of our deadlines. Feedback loops worked seamlessly. Zignuts was readily available at all times. To communicate, we predominately used WhatsApp groups, Telegram groups, shared Google Drives, and conference calls. Language translations were never a barrier.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We had direct access to the management, the developers, and the programmers. All of Zignuts’ resources were available to us. They sincerely took ownership of our project and worked toward its success. It hardly felt like a vendor-client relationship. Rather, it was a partnership where all interests were aligned.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

Their service delivery was fully satisfactory. I have no suggestions there. As Zignuts expands, though, they may need to consider adding resources to keep up service quality.

Zignut Technolabs delivered a high-quality website while respecting budget and time restraints. Their fluid communication, impeccable organization, and technical competence guaranteed outstanding results.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

This is a personal project. Technically speaking, I am my own company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Zignuts Technolab Pvt. Ltd.?

My goal was to develop the initial layout and functionalities for my website. Since I have very limited web development knowledge, I tasked them with converting the site design and functionality that I had envisioned into an actual website.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed to design an interface where users could login and register for free, browse recipes, and add their own to the site. We also needed to add multiple features, including a “favoriting” function and a Yummy.ph recipe import feature.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

While browsing, I found three groups that could cater to my requests. Ravi (Representative, Zignut Technolab Pvt. Ltd.) stood out among them. He was very interested in the project and asked the right questions about my requirements. I chose Zignuts, and I don’t have any regrets.

Describe the project in detail.

They built a website with a cataloguing functionality, which allows the user to browse, schedule, plan, create, and import recipes from other websites.

What was the team composition?

As far as I am aware, Ravi managed all communication between me and their team. Their communication and delivery of the output went smoothly. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What outcomes or results can you share that demonstrate progress and/or success?

They are a results-oriented team. They put forth their best efforts to meet the promised schedule and output goals without sacrificing the quality of the final product.

How effective was the project management?

They managed my project very well throughout the development phase. They designate specific people to work, manage the project, and communicate with clients.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I appreciated their communication, friendly and accommodating representative, and the excellent quality of their work. They’re an awesome group!

What tips or recommendations do you have?

Their output is outstanding. I would recommend that they keep up the good work.

Feedback summary: 

The web platform that Zignuts built ran fast and had no lag. The bugs caught in the software were easily identifiable by Zignuts and were fixed within the allotted timeframe. The clients' end users were very happy with the platform, although the startup is no longer in business.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We were a small coupon marketing startup with a five-person team based in Berlin. I was the founder and CEO of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Zignuts Technolab?

We were developing a coupon marketing software for hotels and restaurants which was mainly online-based. It would allow businesses to create coupons online, integrate them into their websites through JavaScript widgets, and have clients redeem them in-store.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We outsourced our development to Zignuts Technolab. The frontend was a widget, while the backend allowed users to manage timeframes for coupons. The system also had Facebook and Twitter integrations, allowing businesses to promote their services there. The backend was PHP, MySQL, and JavaScript.

The project was milestone-based and ran for 6–8 months. Zignuts Technolab assigned one full-time developer, while other resources joined in for different parts. The Facebook and Twitter integration involved a separate developer, and we also had a quality assurance tester assigned.

We had already built a design and had Photoshop mockups for all the pages in the platform. Strategy elements were also handled in-house. As with any project, we figured out that some parts needed to be changed or added, so Zignuts Technolab’s developers have had to make designs themselves.

How did you come to work with Zignuts Technolab?

I met one of Zignuts Technolab’s principals during a tech startup conference in Germany called IdeaLab! I talked to him about our project and went from there. We stayed in touch through telephone and Skype and had Zignuts Technolab build a milestone plan based on our requirements.

How much have you invested with Zignuts Technolab?

The cost of Zignuts Technolab’s work was around $50,000. The scope increased from our original agreement, but only because we added more functionalities. The payments were made based on milestones, which was nice from our perspective because we didn't put in all our money at once and hoped for the best.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Zignuts Technolab three or four years ago. The project lasted for about eight months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

There were some bugs in the software, but we had a good process of documenting them through screenshots and having Zignuts Technolab work on them. We had a 3-month bug fixing phase which was part of the original scope. We recorded around 150 bugs in our ticketing system.

Our hotel and restaurant clients liked the software overall. The usability was mainly set on our side, so Zignuts Technology was not involved in creating flows. The platform ran fast and had no lagging.

How did Zignuts Technolab perform from a project management standpoint?

In the beginning, we moved within timelines, but the charts and graphs took a bit longer. In total, we came to be two months behind, but we were already expecting that. Besides our team, Zignuts Technolab also assigned a quality assurance manager who checked in from time to time to see if we were satisfied. He didn't have such a large involvement, but it was nice to see that someone besides us was looking at the quality.

What did you find most impressive about Zignuts Technolab?

Zignuts Technolab had a bigger team in the background, so whenever our resources ran into an area for which they didn't have much expertise, they could rely on other people in their company. We were only building a web app, but Zignuts Technolab did have Android and iOS resources. If we wanted to extend the product on mobile, we could have done it using Zignuts Technolab. Things went unexpectedly smoothly on the development end, compared to the nightmare stories I'd heard about outsourcing to India.

Are there any areas Zignuts Technolab could improve?

We built some diagrams showing how many coupons were being redeemed and shared. That part took a bit longer to build, probably because we didn't specify it precisely enough. Zignuts Technolab had less of an understanding in terms of design here, so we had to clearly state what we wanted things to look like.

Feedback summary: 

The apps are set to launch soon, in accordance with initial estimates. Zignuts rapidly communicated feedback to their developers and were prompt in answering questions and queries. Though they favor a structured process, they retain sufficient flexibility to connect and relate to startups.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the managing director and owner of Top Ease Asia Investment Ltd. We’re a Hong Kong-based, B2B consultancy.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Zignuts Technolab Pvt. Ltd.?

Our business wanted to explore the B2C field, so we decided to launch a woman-friendly matching app. As we do not possess in-house app development capability, we needed to hire an external developer.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to develop a matching app aimed at international markets.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

First, we selected 10-20 candidate companies through internet research, anticipated cost, and apparent capability. Then, we carried out Skype meetings with them and asked more detailed questions. Finally, we visited seven shortlisted vendors in Singapore and India and then selected Zignuts. Their flexibility, cost proposals, experience with foreign clients, and design sense fit our project.

Describe the project in detail.

We provided the concept and designs with drawings and words. Zignuts developed the app for iOS and Android with four milestones and regular feedback meetings.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a project manager, a graphic designer, a business analyst, an android developer, an iOS Developer, a web developer, and a testing/QA resource.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The iOS and Android app will be live shortly, which is mostly aligned with the original schedule.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Zignuts’ project management was pretty organized. Feedback reached front-line developers effectively and quickly, and they were quick to pick up when issues arose.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They’re transparent and responsive. They’re also quite stable, but not bureaucratic, so they fit with startups like us.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Overall, we’re satisfied with their performance.
