They did not understand our dreams!

Rudi Voet
posted on 21/7/17
Experience with Clavax

We had the idea to create a platform that would be a mixture between Wikipedia, Facebook and LinkedIn, especially for performing artists. Not because we wanted to make big money, but because we thought it would be nice to have a forum where performing artists (professional and amateur) could meet and interact with the audience.
We selected Clavax mainly because of their tagline ‘We Understand your Dreams Personally’ - ‘Bridging the gap between ideas and reality with our state-of-the art solutions. Let’s work together to make your app!’
In reality things went differently. They did not understand our dreams!
A few examples of the tiresome discussions we had: We can’t even remember how many times we had to explain how we’d like to manage the content for deceased artists’ pages (they did not understand that content was more important than ownership – ‘No, Shakespeare will really not manage his own account’), after 4 months they still thought that a ‘company’ was a tax-paying legal entity (they could have googled that!), they did not understand that the forum was about interaction (and not a list of events) and explaining matters became difficult, when Clavax proved to be very headstrong on certain topics, while not understanding what the application was about.
We had kick-off meetings where our requirements were discussed and understood (or so they said). We had prepared rather a lot (wireframes and written requirements) upfront and basically, what happened was that Clavax created a nice logo (granted) and some nice screen lay-out, but what happened after that, was not professional.
Once functionalities were being developed, the focus lay on creating events and showing overviews of what was on show for a given place or date. That was not what we had in mind. We wanted interaction! Not some static calendar. But … they had not foreseen any interaction with social media (except from ‘login with facebook’) which was our main goal from the start.
We were asked to test what they had developed. After the first round of testing we provided feedback. We were told all was fixed. But when we checked again not all was fixed. Later we heard ‘that is fixed on our development environment and not yet on your QA server’. Duh? While we sat devastated looking at our screens, Clavax was already pushing us with ‘nice ideas for version 2.0 and creating the forum into a smartphone app! We were still looking at some webpages that didn’t do what we wanted them to do
The fact that Clavax didn’t understand what the major goal of the application was, lead to an application that was far from what we had in mind. It was so far from our dream that is would need a lot of rework to get where we wanted to be.
Could we have picked up on this earlier in the process, before Clavax claimed to have completed 98% of the project? The answer would probably be ‘yes’ if we got not lost in discussions back and forth about the format of a phone number, explaining the difference between Dutch and Deutsch, characteristics of European addresses, and so on.
We decided to stop the project (and take the loss of what we invested so far) because it was not going where we wanted it to go. If we wanted interaction with social media, that would have been a ‘new requirement’ and extra cost (of course!).
When asking for the final invoice, we heard that we would need to pay for 98% of completion of the project, because that was what they believed what was already developed. That was the absolute proof that they did not understand one thing about the project. We were at 70% of completion at best.
Our lesson learned is that when contracting development to Clavax, you need to have every little detail of the requirements written on paper upfront (all things not on paper are extra features and thus extra cost). Saying that interaction on social media is part of your app, apparently doesn’t imply that you would like to share photos on Instagram or let your friends know on facebook that you went to a certain event, … That was not what we expected. They did not understand our dreams!

Great Web development Partner

While I was trying to choose which company I work with a few years ago, I noticed a difference in maturity in Clavax approach during the initial business discussions as compared to other options I was evaluating. I am lucky that I could see the difference and chose to work with them.

Throughout the development, Clavax always put me first. Company's expertise is diverse, they were able to service our development needs by pulling expertise from other parts of the company for whichever area we wished to expand to. Expertise I used from Clavax included UI design, database design, Php, Java, Ajax programming, Google Cloud, certificates, IT services, QA, Zend, marketing/adwords and twitter campaigns, third party software integration such as Solr.

There are many potential companies to choose from. Integrity is very important to me and I have been very happy with Clavax in this regard. They did not mislead, they stood behind what they deliver, focused on my needs and not just theirs, and I can observe this culture and approach from all the way from the top to individual contributors. So, truly a partner than a vendor.

We are a digital marketing agency who sub-contract Clavax for all of our development needs. The team at Clavax are great to work with, clear in their communication and brilliant in their execution.

We have a team of producers and designers in house, here in Australia and our development team is based in India and although we all work remotely, we find it easy to communicate and stay up to date on projects. Clavax are always willing to put in the extra time and rise to challenge to meet our needs.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

The personal service, they do what they say they are going to do and they have a wide range of resources catering to all types of technology stacks.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

So far, everything has been fantastic so no comment here.

Executive Interview
DEEPAK TOMAR
DEEPAK TOMAR
CTO, Clavax Technologies LLC
Please introduce your company and your role within the company.
I started Clavax in June 2011 and in less than five years we have become a multinational company & have grown at a rate of 100% to 200% every year. My role in the company is to look into the technical aspects of the operations. I look into the architectural needs of complex project and also involved in closing deals and maintaining client relationships at times. I make sure that I meet my clients once every year just to make sure if they are having any challenges and how can Clavax offer hands to solve any of their problems.

Clavax is full-service IT SOLUTIONS COMPANY. We offer complete product development starting from documentation of the thought, improving the idea, making the App to launching it and also managing the servers and App store optimization. In terms of infrastructure, we have an office in San Jose, CA, which is marketing and support office having a team size of 25 to 30 employees. Another one is located at Gurgaon, which is our own development Centre with a team of 160 to 170 employees.

We cater to extremely diversified client base. If it’s a medium sized project, we take care of everything from our offshore center in Gurgaon where we have a dedicated project manager, team leader underneath, various developers (iOS and Android - as per the project requirement) and the QA coding team. If the project is big sized and the client can afford, then we recruit an on-site project manager for the client, who is responsible for all the communication happening between the client and Clavax. The person is responsible for all the deliverables. We call this hybrid model, which works really well for our enterprise level clients where the project manager coordinates between the client and the offshore team at Gurgaon. For offshore development we charge 20 to 25 US$ and for on-shore resource like a project manager or a developer we charge 60 to 70 US$.

We have a dedicated team of Business Analyst. Each time a new project comes; a Business Analyst is assigned to a project that regularly communicates with the client to understand their requirement. Many times it’s difficult to understand the client’s aspirations by just seeing the document they put their idea on, so we emphasize on continuous interaction. For clients who give emphasis on price from the beginning, we have an estimate planner on our website. We ask them to go through ten different screens where we ask them basic questions about their technical requirements and they get an estimate on the price.

Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing a mobile app
For developing a mobile app the key rule is, time and cost go hand in hand. If something is taking more time, than it is going to cost more. The critical parameters that we consider while committing the delivery time to our clients involve whether they are accepting payments on the app or not, if they want to do native apps or just want to do phone gap or some responsive stuff. If a hardware intra-activity kind of process is involved it will take longer to develop than a simple app where you need to consume API and display information and then send the information back to the server. Hardware intra-activity where we need to connect with a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, such kind of apps takes a little longer. Then it comes down to features and complexity of the app itself.
How much effort in terms of time goes into developing the front end and back end of a mobile application
Time efforts totally be contingent upon the requirement, like mobile app on iOS and Android native development takes around 8 to 10 weeks. However, if we talk about phone gap development which is used for developing an unpretentious app; that will take around 6 to 8 weeks. Moreover, the aforementioned development will include designing, API’s, frontend and backend.
What is your company’s business model–in-house team or third party vendors / outsourcing
We do not out-source any of our projects. We have a talented team of developers and technical people in-house who have managed some of our most complex projects.
How is your business model beneficial from a value addition perspective to the clients compared to other companies' models?
We have done hardware connectivity apps where we need to talk via Bluetooth. We have done apps where we need to consume lot more data and the app needs to be scalable. In some cases, we deal with apps, which involve a lot of online and offline thing, some features of your app can run in offline mode. We have done all kinds of work for good number of clients and delivered successfully. Quite often, our project management methodologies have been highly appreciated by our clients. We use a lot of software that are really seamless for app development. We do daily internal scrums and weekly scrums with our clients. We give them weekly status where they can see what the progress is and give their feedback(s).
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of a mobile application
We look into the in-app features, hardware traction, if it needs to be native or responsive, the kind of features it is going to have and the level of complexity.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients?
We keep it milestone based. We ask them to pay some upfront cost which ranges from 5% to 20% depending on the project. So if the project is greater 50,000 US$, then we are going to have close to 10 milestones. If it is around 25,000 US$ then we are going to divide the project billing into 5 to 6 milestones. So it depends on the size of the project.
Do you take in projects which meet your basic budget requirement?
Generally we keep a minimum of 15,000 US$ to 20,000US$ but in some cases, we also consider taking projects costing as low as 10,000 US$.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2015?
20,000 US$ to 200,000 US$
Which business model do you suggest to generate revenue from mobile applications? Why?
I am not a big fan of suggesting offering advertising options in a mobile application for generating revenue because even if you do, no one’s going to make a fortune out of that. Mobile ads can be good for less than 1% of the businesses and then also it should be a generalized thing which people use on a daily or hourly basis. You cannot rely on ads in utility applications, which people are going to use once or twice a week. In such cases, I suggest adding some features that are premium and thus charge for those particular features or like your business model should be in a way that gets you some money.
