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 do you like most about the company?
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 they should improve on?
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
