Objective & Scope
1. What was the objective of the project you did with Agriya?
We basically wanted a website/platform where a community of artists can connect with other artists as well as with people who are looking for specialized products. People can find custom-designed work from designers across the web so it’s like a crowd-sourcing marketplace and creative community.
2. What is the scope of the project? What all did Agriya do for you?
They made the entire design for the platform exactly according to our definition, which includes heavy documents, with all the functionality with the screens. They made Photoshop illustrations of different screens and implemented everything. The entire platform was developed by them. The UI was defined by us, they did the implementation and also suggested some things to do differently.
3. What was the estimated timeframe committed for the completion of the project?
The project started in March 2013 and they committed to eight months for completing the basic version.
4. How much time did it actually take for completing the task?
It took like eight months to complete the basic version which also included some changes that we made so we completed on time; actually, they met the exact committed date. I have worked with big technology companies but this team is very good, they were able to perform on-time with quality. The basic version was completed in October 2013 and after that, we kept on adding new functionalities into it and it went on for one and a half year more.
5. Please provide an approximate figure (in $) for the work done?
I would like to keep it confidential, but I can tell you that they will cost you right as they are not the most expensive and not even the cheapest. But, you will not find them expensive when you’ll use their services.
6. Did they exceed the committed price point and why?
No, this was a fixed-cost project. It was priced regardless of the time and they did it exactly within the budget that I allocated. They only charged for the additional things that too if it took too much time.
8. How did you come to know about Agriya?
We found them through the internet. We were searching for development companies and were in contact with few of them and Agriya had some platform that was kind of in the direction that we were looking for so we start to discuss.
9. Why did you choose to partner with them?
After we met them, we saw their skills. We interviewed people to check how dedicated they are. Their price and timeframe were reasonable, so we sign the contract with them. They also had developed a similar platform for crowd-sourcing earlier, so they also had that experience.
10. Did Agriya evaluate your project scope and requirements correctly?
Yeah sure, not only the functional part but also the technical implementation! They needed to translate many features that we were asking for into realistic design and they did it accurately.
11. Did the company deliver as per your expectations?
Yes, they did.
12. Are you satisfied with the sales and customer support service?
Yes, very much. They appointed a guy who was my account manager and all the communication was done through him. He was always available and very supportive. Whenever I wanted to have a chat or some technical discussion about any business aspect or software thing, he redirected me to the right person and supported me throughout. Everything was very well organized.
13. Is there anything that makes them stand out compared to other companies (core Strengths)?
There are so many contractors for developing platforms like this in many countries but I can tell you that they have got skilled designers. I can tell you that they are very honest; they will not try to give you any high-estimations because they want your money or so. They are somebody whom you can trust and it’s not only my feeling but the reality. Whenever I find anything very expensive, after discussing it with them, I understand that they are right. So, they are very open and honest with me. They are very dedicated and meet the timeframes. They are always responsive.
14. According to you, is there any area that you think they can improve upon?
Maybe the QA can be improved as we needed to do our own QA and we always found some minor issues to fix. They could do QA better, but it’s endless and they needed to stop at some point. They did the basic QA and after that, we never found any critical issues.
15. Did they offer proactive consultative approach? (Technical advice, design changes etc.)
Yes always! If I was asking for something which was very expensive to develop, they will give me alternatives to choose from and they give me different ways to do that. They also help me to select a right solution for me. There were many pieces of advice that they gave us throughout the development process.
