Computools shapes the future with products, services and solutions that businesses need to Unlock Tomorrow. We’re a worldwide company that generates world-changing ideas.

Computools' philosophy is based on three principles:

CONSTRUCTIVENESS

With Computools, innovation comes standard. Clients trust us for our clarity, structure, high performance rate and intuitive functionality across every stage of the software development process. Because if it’s not worth making perfectly, it’s not worth making at all.

FUTURISM

The future is under control. We’re a company of visionaries—people who don’t just pay attention to what’s happening around the globe, but who also provide unique solutions that create real change.

HUMANISM

We’re digital humanists at heart. Our platforms, applications and other IT-products have a singular goal: to make it easy for our clients to take care of their clients. That starts with a human-centered approach to everything we do.

Whether we’re designing customer experiences, dealing with our clients or managing our teams, we lead with empathy. Technology is for everyone, not just the geeks. That’s why we focus on using clear, intelligible language, treating every stakeholder with respect and providing support at all stages of development. By starting with a shared understanding of what makes us all human, we’re able to create the favorable conditions necessary to develop our best-in-class solutions.

We turned to Computools with the idea of creating a sales management platform for our website.
Thanks to their business analysts we pointed out the optimal list of functionality that included full sales cycle management, automation of necessary documents, tracking, inventory management, client base management, and analytical tools for better transparency.
Computools`s engineers formed a tech stack for our project, development guidelines, and optimal project management methodology to stay on budget, and finally synchronized the developed sales management system with our existing website.
It would definitely be the approach and communication. It was our first time working with the software development company and they did their best to outline the foremost objectives of the project, risks, and optimal deadlines; they carefully explained what is really needed from the system and how to implement it, conducted regular check-ins and meetings for better transparency, and did many other.
Pros :
  • Their ability to identify main pain points and address them accordingly is really impressive.
  • The most impressive about this company were their approach and communication.
Cons :
  • I can't think of any negatives, everything was fine in our cooperation

A great team with the right knowhow and the perfect "Yes we can" attitude

Dealing with outsourcing teams is always a challenge, that is why our first project with Computools was such a refreshing surprise. Their high level of professionalism is seen in every part of their work - from the first call to the last QA test and the support thereafter. Needless to say that we've returned again when the time came for another development project.. and again.. and again. Whether it was a small module, or a whole app that needed developing - we always got the same excellent service and a timely delivered result. We've recommended Computools to all of our clients, and we'll gladly continue to do so in the future.

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

Excellent service and very professional developers

Technically excellent, responsible developers

Sergey Zaks
posted on 27/1/18
We hired Computools to develop Phase I of a product, a map-based software system. They did an excellent job, so we decided to use them on a more technically-challenging Phase II. The system is of an IoT-type, working with the IP cameras. Even though this field was relatively new to the developers, they came up with a very reasonable estimate and then adhered to it during the development cycle. The group was led by a senior developer who was not only technically very good but also very responsive and available at any time. We were very satisfied with the results and plan to continue using Computools.

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

Technical competency, responsiveness, positive attitude.

Brought my Vision to life

Wayne Creel
posted on 14/9/17
I started with just a single developer from Computools to test their skill level and communication. I have done this so many times before with new development teams. I was immediately pleased with the first developer that I increased to 3 people and now 8 months later we have 13 people. The team has grown and rapidly improved my product extensively. We are now about to exit private beta and on board over 500,000 users.

I highly recommend Computools, they have been an exceptional partner and we will continue to use them for the foreseeable future.

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

Exceptionally talented people and extremely nice to work with.

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

Cloning. There are a couple of people that we have their that are so awesome I wish they could multiply.

Great team and productive collaboration

Vasily Repchenko

I am the project manager of a cryptocurrency exchange "Rokes exchange" based in Estonia.

We were working with Computools on development of the new design for our exchange platform and some tasks on the backend. It was a major update for our project and the Computools team worked on PWA version of our main app.

Computools was chosen as a vendor by one of the previous PMs, and I am not in a position to tell what this decision was based on. Over the course of the year we worked with Computools, two other vendors were engaged in the development process, but in the end we decided to only stick with Computools, and this decision was based on their professional skills, the timely delivery on the tasks and good communication skills of the team.

The UI redesign was centered around frontend technologies, mostly the implementation of PWA version and web version of our app using Vue.js. Apart from that, Computools also participated in the implementation of GraphQL API in our project.

We had varying number of team members over the time we worked, but we always had one project manager and one business manager for the whole duration of our contract, and the development team was changing depending on the current scope of our development requests, while the lead developer was also with our project almost all the time.

We have successfully launched our new design and the PWA app, mostly by the hand of Computools team. Everything was delivered as requested by our specification and design document. The quality of work was on a very decent level, and although there were inevitable minor bugs or things that needed small corrections, everything was fixed in a timely manner.


The project manager assigned to our project by Computools was proactive, had great communication skills and demonstrated fluency in English. We held sprint meetings and interim calls, while he them communicated with the development team. If needed he also facilitated the calls directly with the lead developer and we always appreciated the team's ability to adjust to our changing requirements and deliver on tasks with little or no delay.

For communication we used MS Teams, for planning we first used Trello, then MS Planner and then Github issues and board. The team had no problem with using any of these tools and also made reasonable suggestions on how we can improve the collaboration process using these tools.

Their ability to work in a very flexible manner, timely delivery and communication skills from both managers helped us to upgrade our product in the planned terms and their contribution was the most valuable among other vendors we worked with. They were able to easily collaborate with other teams and our internal team, sharing their extensive expertise and finding consensus with other developers was a crucial part of their work with our project.

Custom LMS platform

Stian Andresen
posted on 28/10/20
I am representing a digital agency located in Norway. In 2019 we got a complex project about developing a custom LMS platform. Based on our meetings we picked Computools to be a good match based on their feedback, follow up questions and quick turnaround when needed. We needed a company with great experience with the technology stack Laravel, React, AWS and Wordpress.

We started with UI and UX work before Computools got informed and hired for the project. Based on the project specification and design Computools used agile development to help us achieve important project milestones such as developing an pilot version for platform presentations and user feedback. Since we did not have a strict platform specification containing user stories in advance, Computools helped us in an incredible way in terms of creating user stories and suggest solutions. They have been a great partner in this project, not just a vendor.

Computools have had a single project manager in the project, this have made communication swift and effective. We are very impressed in how the Computools team have contributed in the project by solving difficult tasks that is not always described in detail. I think this have pushed the team to think for themselves and contribute to this project in a big way. We are also impressed on how professional the company are in terms of follow up communication and how they want to build a long lasting professional relationship.

We can highly recommend Computools to anyone interested in their services.

Great Collaboration!

Computools is an excellent company for a full cycle project. The most important quality for us was the interest in the success of the product. Thanks to the well-coordinated work of the team, the development and implementation of the product on the market were completed on time.
Computools has developed 2 beauty apps with friendly UX. One was created for beauty service providers and the other for consumers.
Firstly we discussed the project and mapped a workflow. Then we have identified the basic requirements for the project and the most appropriate technology stack. After that, the team immediately started developing the project.
The team consisted of three developers and project manager. We communicated directly with the project manager, and the tasks were provided in jira.It was very convenient to work according to the SCRAM method with daily meetings.
We received an increase in the flow of customers within a week after the launch of the product. We have received some feedback on improving the customer experience.

Robert Bailey
posted on 3/11/17
We've worked with many out source companies over the years. But Computools have by far been the best. The technical abilty and quality of the team leaves us with no question abotu the project we get back. Plus we have multi code disciplines and they handle these with ease. Communication through the projects is great, whilst they also meet or exceed expectations on deadlines. We are confident that whilst we grow they are able to handle this and be our ongoing partner.

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

Friendly, good communication, proactive with suggesting better methods and systems.

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

Executive Interview
Sergii Tymchuk
Sergii Tymchuk
CEO, Computools
Please introduce your company and briefly describe your role within the company.
Computools is a one-stop company to outsource software development with it’s headquarter in Unit City, Kiev. Being a company leader means the highest responsibility for success and well-being of every client and employee. Day after day, I find out new ways of improving the working conditions and moving our organization to the next level. At the same time, I follow the mission to promote the prosperity for customers’ businesses through full-cycle servicing of innovative software development, enabling customers to concentrate on their core tasks.
What was the idea behind starting this organization?
From the age of 12, I was utterly fascinated by computer programs and other IT innovations. It was so interesting for me to explore how complex software is developed, how to automate daily processes and business operations by means of innovative technologies. When I was 14, I started working in the agrarian sector. The idea of developing special technology for automating agricultural processes didn’t give me any rest. Exactly at that moment, I set a goal to build my own company which specializes in custom software development. In 2013, I founded Computools, having just 4 programmers aboard. Now I’m a CEO of a global company represented by 90 employees with more than 250 successfully implemented projects for clients and partners all over the world. Dreams have a propensity to come true if you work tirelessly and strive to grow each day.
What is your company’s business model–in-house team or third party vendors/ outsourcing?
Computools has the in-house team. We grow the own dedicated professionals.
How is your business model beneficial from a value-added perspective to the clients as compared to other companies’ models?
Our business model is focused on 2 areas: reduction of time and costs, and quick launching. We recommend our customers to choose an innovative MVP approach to enter the market in just 60 days, going ahead of their competitors. The concept of the minimum viable product allows getting rid of extra expenditures, as you receive a ready product with the most important features after 2 months. Not wasting money on office rent, the arrangement of workplaces and special equipment, you can rely on a more modest budget, and make investments in strategic issues. Another advantage comes from our innovative philosophy that we never stand still. We strive to constantly grow and develop together with our customers, mastering new technologies and ways

of thinking. All that we offer is not a stagnant resource. What we offer is a valuable product of continuous learning.
Moreover, with our high-performance standards, you’ll effectively be supported in the field of risk management. Illness or any other unforeseeable exceptional circumstances towards our employees, - Computools ensures the instantaneous replacement. Such approach provides stability and continuity of your project in legal and business terms.
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive? If yes, what ratio of clients has been repetitive to you?
Along with hundreds of business partners, customers, and friends, our internal teams successfully develops innovative software solutions in the fields of gaming, leisure, fintech, e-commerce, retail, media, entertainment, software, hi-tech, real estate and property, healthcare, life science, education, and human resources. We’re focused on long-term partnerships, so the majority of our clients refer to us to implement new projects for their businesses.
Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing a mobile app.
The time frame of developing a mobile app depends primarily on the volume and complexity of the desired functionality. Then, if there are certain technical risks, for example, if a client wants to build an innovative app which has no equivalent, our team will conduct deep research. Another critical parameter is an abrupt change of requirements. It takes time to adapt to new tasks and development approaches. Also, the time frame depends on how well the interaction with a server (API) is documented and worked out. Eventually, the complexity of UI/UX design and a list of supported versions influence the length of the development process. It’s pretty difficult to support the old versions.
How much effort in terms of time goes into developing the frontend and backend of a mobile app?
This question doesn’t assume the definite answer. It’s tantamount to asking “How long will it take to build a house?” The only fact is that everything depends on the requirements and volume of functionality.
What are the key parameters to be considered before selecting the right platform for a mobile application?
Before selecting the right platform for a mobile application, we take into account the requirements of performance and responsiveness of the app as well as the complexity and originality of its design. A functionality that works with API of the device is also a key parameter.
Which platform do you suggest your clients begin with when they approach you with an idea (Android or iOS) and why?
We recommend our clients choose the definite platform considering geographical location of their target audience. For example, in the USA iOS is the most widespread platform, while in China users adhere to Android.
Android or iOS, Native or Hybrid — which platform is best to use to build your app? What are your recommendations?
There are a rapid growth and increased popularity of hybrid apps, and it’s not surprising. The hybrid apps are designed for the mass market which majorly consists of small and medium businesses. A hybrid app is a winning solution if we need a composite application consisting of many small modules. You can simply isolate necessary modules and put them into another app, duplicating this feature. Moreover, take into account that the average cycle of rewriting (updating) a mobile application is once in 2 years, and for hybrid apps, this process is cheaper.

However, if we talk about a large enterprise which requires a reliable app for automating business processes or performing tasks of high complexity, a native app is the only option. If you plan to have a stable performer, it’s recommended to start building a native app due to its clear code. A developer will always be able to understand any line and function.

As you can see, the choice of a platform depends on a sphere and industry you work within. Narrow niches and large enterprises won’t go without native apps, while for small and midsize businesses hybrid apps are the most optimal solution.

The second question is Android or iOS. Nowadays, both of these platforms are great. I’ll just repeat that make a choice according to the location of your target audience. Monitor the market and figure out what platform your potential users adhere to.
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of a mobile application?
The cost of a mobile app is based on the volume and complexity of the functionality a client wants to implement. First of all, it’s necessary to create a full picture of the functionality and make up the project documentation. Both a client and our team should have the same understanding of the future product. Our innovative approach to solving this issue is that we use interactive prototypes. The business analyst collects client requirements and conveys them to the UX designer. Then the UX designer visualizes all requirements with the help of special program which approximately demonstrates how the future product will look like and work, including an arrangement of elements, the transition between screens, and calls to action. Eventually, we present a ready prototype to the client for discussion and final approval, creating a technical specification which is passed to leading experts for further evaluation.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients? Is it Pay per Feature, Fixed Cost, Pay per Milestone (could be in phases, months, versions etc.)
Our company is pretty flexible, so that we can consider any billing options, preferring Time & Material and Pay per Milestone (in phases) payment structures. At the same time, Computools is the client-oriented company which tends to remove all possible risks.
That’s why we also use Fixed Cost, as it ensures the safety of customer’s budget.
Do you take in projects which meet your basic budget requirement? If yes, what is the minimum requirement? If no, on what minimum budget you have worked for?
Generally, we take Fixed Cost projects from $20,000 and Time & Material projects from $40 / hour. At the same time, we can work on single tasks or provide support services under contractual terms.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2016?
The minimum price range of a project we worked on in 2016 was $20,000. Our most expensive project reached $500,000.
Which business model do you suggest to your clients enabling them to generate revenue from mobile applications? Why?
The choice depends on a type of the app. For example, it’s very profitable to introduce paid subscriptions into a music player app. The region should also be taken into consideration. Anyway, we suggest our clients to connect a paid subscription or provide free basic features with a paid Premium functionality.
