I set the vision and strategy for the company as well as communicate with clients of Artkai and internal stakeholders.
With the support of our third partner who used to be a partner in a well-known law firm, we founded a design boutique with only a few people in it. From 7 people and Upwork-based projects to the market-leading position and global recognition, we have come a long way to prove there is more to us than affordable rates and acceptable English. We might have taken a wrong turn or two along the way, but we have certainly got to the right place.
Small companies and large enterprises come to Artkai rather for expertise and counsel than for manual labor. Every day our clients trust us to solve complex problems, realize bold ideas, and build resolute products. We take pride in our talent selection process and, more importantly, in people who have managed to get through it. Make no mistake, we have the most passionate, hard-working, and ingenious odd-balls on our team. This is all we have ever wanted! Okay, it was a little too dramatic. Clearly, we want more than that.
Eventually, we're an end-to-end product development company that can bring value by shaping the strategy and understanding customers, and delivering value from digital solutions that are made under one roof.
Currently, Artkai is a team of 100 ppl and constantly growing. We are proud that our projects are used by dozens of millions of people, were recognized by Apple, Y-Combinator, Forbes, and helped our clients to raise more than $350 million of funding.
Yet, I would say that our UX competence and Business Analysis are something that attracts the majority of our clients. We do them really differently and more professionally from other IT companies and many other IT vendors. We use the research-based approach and dig really deep into the business of our clients and in understanding their customers. We conduct Workshops, both online & onsite, we know how to understand users’ needs, audit competitors, get market insights, turn assumptions into facts/validate the hypothesis, and how to transform this knowledge into seamless customer experiences. Then, for sure, we pick the best suiting architecture and technology to launch solutions that make sense to business, users and our clients.

- End-to-End PoC/MVP development for Startups. Our approach based on discovery sessions and rapid prototyping allow us to assist clients in the quick launch of any digital product with reduced risks.
- Customer-facing applications for the Banking and FinTech companies. Vast experience in collaborating with traditional and disrupting financial institutions allows us to help our clients concentrate on seamless user experiences, performant front-end, and LTV(lifetime value) of their customers.
- Digitalization and digital product innovation for SMB & SME. Through workshops and service blueprints, we uncover gaps and insights that can be translated into online services/applications to boost any company's efficiency or create new revenue streams.
- Scaling product engineering teams with the best hand-picked talents. We find, screen, and hire developers to help our clients reduce business operations costs and quickly fill gaps in any tech skill.
So, I can definitely tell that we are successful in satisfying our clients. If I would name steps that we take in order to meet customer's needs and requirements I would definitely tell that we pay huge attention to the culture in the company. We try to communicate from the first sales call to ongoing product development because the culture helps our clients to bond with our people. At the end of the day when you work mostly remotely and especially in 2020, it's so important to make sure that there’s good chemistry between your team and your client.
We pay huge attention to make sure that communication is clear, that we are fun to work with, and at the same time that we have very good work ethics. By that, I mean everything should be provided on time and all essential paperwork should be in place. At the end of the day, all clients want to be sure that everything is predictable.
Moreover, all of our projects have a delivery manager who takes care of communication, paperwork.
One of our core values is client satisfaction. Sounds cliche, but again, for a company that works remotely, it’s essential to ensure high communication standards and keep humor and fun in daily work.
At the end of the day, it’s important to know all the restrictions. If the technology is feasible, and what resources are available. By resources, everybody means timing and money. We are always very attentive to building the roadmap with our clients to make sure that they can meet the deadline and they can exclude something that is not much needed in the first release. So, we do everything possible to make sure they can meet a deadline and budget restrictions. At the same time, we can add resources to make the delivery quicker when the money question is not that sensitive. It’s all about dialogue and you need to be agile and honest.
So I would definitely tell you that you can get to us if you have a budget of $10k and then eventually we will help you to understand what will be the full scope of the project. If I would name the average price of the project it will go from $60k to $100k for MVP and go up if you're talking about something bigger and more complex.
So, in terms of the price range, most of the clients who came to us are spending from $50k to $100k for their initial release of an application, but there are also companies who are spending $150k to $250k and even $500k for something bigger than reduced MVP and bigger engineering team. It depends on several things and we help our clients to understand what is the best way to launch an app/service/solution for them.
If the competition is really high in the niche, it definitely makes sense to launch something that would be outstanding from day one. If the competition and the idea are unique and you need to check the hypothesis, even a clickable prototype would be a great idea to start with. In this case, the price would be around $20-30k. So, it all depends on your needs and so we are pleased to help all the clients identify this need before spending a lot of money.
I always tell my colleagues that we are striving to become a leading product development company that helps companies from Fortune 500 to become more customer-centric. Our mission is to build digital services that everyday help people solve their problems better and faster. And, by working together with bigger companies, we’ll be able to impact more people.
Many companies are facing this goal to create something online, to create something digital but now when people face more and more delightful experiences online in their mobile phones and the applications they use every day they want to have a similar level of experience everywhere. And, it's really essential right now for businesses to make sure they can deliver it. Artkai is and will be the company that creates this bridge between companies and customers creating top of the notch experiences that will be benchmarks for the whole industry.
