Amazing Team, Quality Work, Great Communication

Christy Ai
posted on 1/11/19
I hired Gecko in order to develop a mobile app. From the beginning, the team was great with communication and establishing targets and deliverables. I was working under a tight deadline, so the team respected that and diverted resources properly to make sure it was completed on time. I was impressed with all the groups, from the UI/UX, to backend, frontend, to designing logos, etc.

The team was very professional and was patient with me, coming from a non-technical background and at times not knowing what is required. Midway through the project, I wanted to completely change the design of it because I wasn't completely satisfied with the aesthetics. The team managed to change and overhaul the entire thing within a matter of a week, and now it looks amazing!

The beta that was delivered exceeded expectations, and was exactly as we had planned. The team is continuing to make great progress and tweaks, and they have been exceptionally capable.

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

Communication, Flexibility, Quick turnaround, solid deliverables, solutions and implementations.

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

Initiative - sometimes my ideas are not the greatest, and I wouldnt mind the team pushing back against my idea or suggesting a better alternative.

Gecko Dynamics a reliable partnerer for Middleware

Sakis Samaras
posted on 10/12/19
I hold a position in the R&D department as a Product Owner. My background is IT (hardware, software, networks, engineering, integration). For some years I have acted as Project Manager for IT projects .
Our Company decided to expand our service offering adding a new core electronic service. The challenge was to create a scalable , extendable, robust responsive middleware and integrate the underlying technology with the upper public service layer.
We have followed a typical RFP cycle for this project and Gecko Dynamics won the contract.
During past 5 months, Gecko Dynamics has delivered the middleware and it has been pushed to production test successfully. We expect to go live with the service by the end of the year.
The cooperation between the teams is excellent, Gecko Dynamics remains responsive and supportive during the pre-launch step, that in turn led to Phase 2 of this project (extension and additional features integration).
In general, I was able to reach Gecko's Project Manager well out of office hours, something that I consider as invaluable when you are deploying a service. Sometimes you need that security from your technology partner.
Over all the cooperation is excellent, the only note that i would made is about Documentation. They are supportive, responsive and will spend time with you but if you wish to follow strict Prince 2 principals on project closure you have to adapt their documentation and generate the Administration and Key User manuals.

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

Responsiveness, deep knowledge of technologies used, team velocity.

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

Documentation for Administration and End User (Support in our case)

Great mixture of attention, expertise, cost and responsibility

Александр Лобода
posted on 3/3/20
We partnered with Gecko Dynamics because we needed to develop a domain registrar software
and they seemed to have the closest understanding of the business and technical aspects of
such software. The domain registration industry has a very sophisticated requirements so we
needed a partner who can understand them and has a very deep technical knowledge. They
showed both in the initial meetings.
After being contracted, Gecko Dynamics developed a custom platform from scratch in Java. In
addition, they also provided business and technical analysis which potentially saved us a lot of
money as they indicated threats which we were not aware of. They also did the UI/UX design,
testing and provided project management and maintenance as well. The platform turned out to be
successful and it currently serves over 65,000 customers.
What I appreciate most is that they were very thoughtful from the beginning, they didn’t leave the
questions unanswered and really showed a great attitude to really understand all high and low-
level details. I found it very impressive because I’m in IT industry for 20 years already and I’ve
been working with many different software development companies, and with various results, but

it was the first time I saw an external company caring that much. Sometimes I had a feeling like
they were caring about how to make the most optimal solutions more than me.
After Phase 1, I decided that I want stay with this company for the next phases and for and other
projects. They turned out to be a perfect mixture of attention, knowledge, cost and performance.
They also communicated very well and I knew what was going on at every stage of the project,
and if there were problems or issues they were always able to resolve it in a healthy-working way
for both parties.
I work with them for 12 years already and am very happy with everything they provided so far.

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

They were very thoughtful from the beginning, they asked only relevant questions and they never left my questions unanswered. Before I partnered with them I thought I will need to push them in communication since that was my previous experience, but that was never required.

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

I can’t think of anything significant right now. Obviously, in every projects, especially that long there are ups and downs but in my opinion it’s not really possible to never had a bad day or to never make a mistake, I think what matters is how a person or company recovers from it and how it can manage possible issues, and although there were very few of them they managed them in a very healthy way so that everyone was happy

Diligent and dedicated partner!

We have found Gecko Dynamics a joy to work with. They are a responsive and engaged partner and are truly part of our team. They know where to challenge and when to double down and make beautiful looking and feeling products. We initially brought them into work on the prototype. However, quality of their work and ability to consistently deliver ahead of shedule and under budget made it impossible not to extent our relationship with them. I fully expect to be working with Michael, Sergiy and Bart at Gecko for years to come and know that they will be as central the continued success of this business as anyone in our team.

Gecko Dynamics took over from a previous team and provided outsourced development support fixing a custom application. They also provided consultation for design and business model ideas.

The final product fulfilled the end customer’s needs and resulted in a satisfactory collaboration. The Gecko Dynamics’ team was communicative and kept all parties involved in their process. Their honesty and accuracy made for a smooth engagement and produced valuable work.

It was a pleasure working with Gecko Dynamics and I will not hesitate in working with them for any future endeavors.

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

Their honest communication. It is a relief working with a supplier where you can trust reports generated by them. They also communicate well in advance when something may not be going as expected and explain how they are working to resolve it. Great overall team to work with.

iOS and Android App

Michael and his team have been amazing in helping me in moving all the content from the TrailTips V1 app to an updated TrailTips V2 app whereby everything is stored on a server in the backend and this allows me to add content and manipulate the current content whenever. They were such a huge help, easy to deal with, knowledgable and also open to providing feedback and letting me know their thoughts. Will definitely use them again and actually just reached out for the next potential project!

I have had the pleasure of working with Gecko Dynamics to build out my website and platform over the past year. They are very communicative and forward thinking. Not only did they help me build and create my platform, but they consulted with me one best practices and design. My experience has been great and I'm excited to continue to adding upgrades and more features.
Pros :
  • The collaborative communication we had with each other to ensure deadlines were being met
Cons :
  • I wish there was a project management tool that gave me a better view on time to execute different projects/features

Gecko Dynamics were very professional, and their developers worked toward very tight deadlines with adapting requirements with efficiency and high quality output. Couldn’t recommend them more as a company, have always been very reliable in timelines (often completing work ahead of schedule) and very few issues. Excellent knowledge of the technology stack and provide great consultancy and support for building our platform in an efficient and scalable way.

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

Gecko Dynamic’s adaptability to our tight deadlines and evolving requirements in addition to their reliability have made them an integral part of our product development

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

I have no recommendations at this time, their communication is excellent

Executive Interview
Alex Tarasiuk
Alex Tarasiuk
CEO, Gecko Dynamics
Kindly share your feedback on how GoodFirms has been doing so far in increasing your visibility among potential clients.

GoodFirms help us with increasing our visibility, it is on the market for quite some time so the next great advantage is that it is trusted. Our partners can verify or check opinions about Gecko Dynamics and that pretty important for them. The last thing is that traffic from GoodFirms has good quality people who are visiting our page are looking for this kind of service.

Please introduce your company and give a brief about your role within the company?
As you probably mentioned in the title I have the pleasure to be the CEO of  Gecko Dynamics. My role within the company is to simply solve all the problems that may have an impact on our business. It’s hard to describe my daily work, every day is different and brings new tasks to deal with. Frankly, my biggest role is to make all this happen and make sure that all the words that we gave to our partners will be kept, no matter what will come up ahead.
What was the idea behind starting this organization?
Our company can be described as a boutique software agency that has vast experience in the aviation, manufacturing, and logistics industries. To be honest the whole idea behind our company is to be a reliable partner for all kinds of companies that needs software services. We’ve been bored with the “traditional approach”, what I meant by that is that we don’t perceive our clients as a bag filled with money, let’s be honest this is one of the most competitive markets. That means that there are many companies similar to ours. The question was, do we have to treat people who came to us strictly as a client? The answer is no, we can be partners, today's world is changing rapidly, so it’s easy to stay behind, this business is not only about making money but is also about making difference. People are more dedicated to someone who is closer, who is not seen as the next batch of money, that why we have partners, we work, grow and achieve goals together, both sides have an interest in being successful, right?
What is your company’s business model–in house team or third party vendors/ outsourcing?
In my opinion,  an in-house team is essential, you can’t grow if you don’t know the people that you work with. Building a team is not only about combining people with skills that match requirements, it’s all about gathering people that want to be a part of something bigger, that will be a part of their teams, that will see a bigger picture and achieve success together and if something goes wrong they won’t look for someone to blame, but the solutions that keep everything going.
How is your business model beneficial from a value addition perspective to the clients compared to other companies' models?
We work with, not only for the client. Sometimes it’s hard to disagree, but if you want to be a real partner you can’t accept every idea simply to get money. In short terms, yep you will earn some money, but let’s be honest, someone who wants our services probably is looking for solutions that may help with solving their problems, not someone’s acceptance. This means that we can’t always agree with all of the aspects of the project, if we see any flaws we’re looking for a solution,  not the next paycheck. If our partners won’t grow and achieve their goals with what we do why would we?
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive?
In general, most of our projects are for Manufacturing & Logistics, but we work with almost all kinds of companies all around the world. In case of repetitiveness, it’s hard to tell, there are always some common tasks and phases in software development, but all of these projects and people behind them have different needs, what makes them unique is their situation and in this case, we can’t speak about receptiveness.
Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing software.
  • Expected workload in man hours
  • Complexity of the technological problems that have to be solved
  • Clarity of the scope and the materials provided by the client
  • Size and seniority levels of the team members
How much effort in terms of time goes into developing the front end and back end of software?
That depends on the project - there are projects that require more frontend work (e.g. with sophisticated interfaces, tricky design elements, animations, or where most of the logic is done by frontend application) or projects that are more complex on the backend (e.g. due to advanced calculations, 3rd party integrations, etc.)
What are the key parameters to be considered before selecting the right framework for developing software?
  • Size of the system 
  • Specific operations the software has to perform 
  • Purpose of the software 
  • Other specific requirements of the software that may be impacted by various frameworks 
  • How well the framework addresses these parameters 
  • Popularity of the framework - whether it’s still being developed or is it an outdated
Which languages & frameworks do you prefer to use in development of software?
Our core expertise is Java and .NET in the case of the backend, and Angular and React.js for frontend, but we also work with other languages, frameworks, and tools, such as Node.js, Vue.js, PHP (Laravel, Symfony, Yii2), Python (Django), C++.
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of software?
  • Scope of the software
  • Workload required to complete that scope by certain team
  • Complexity of operations the software has to perform
  • Amount of 3rd party integrations and their complexity
  • Design (tricky designs can significantly increase the frontend development cost)
  • Time required for implementing the software in accordance with best practices
  • Other requirements
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.)
For scoped projects, we work on a Time & Materials basis and Fixed Price basis, and for outstaffing / team extension type of projects we work on a monthly rate basis that is specified for each member of the team.
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?
We don’t have a minimum budget, which doesn’t mean we take in any project. We treat every project as an opportunity and evaluate it individually and then decide whether we want to work on it or not.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2020?
$10k - $500k.
