Review Summary

We came to KiwiTech with our MVP on the app store and our SOW was to take our simple booking app and build a full-scale sports and fitness ecosystem. From mapping out feature requirements, to giving insight on best UI/UX to reshaping technical capabilites - KiwiTech delivered on all accounts. Now they are helping our scale our platform to create more user adoption and increase sales. Couldn't have asked for more.

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

We did have a hiccup in resources required for the project. Having the full resources available from the beginning would be the only improvement.

Review Summary

I work with minority owned early stage tech startups in the USA and UK that have historically struggled to fundraise without showing significant early traction or revenues versus non-minority owned. Kiwitech partnership and business model have allowed my early stage tech startups to start building quality deliverables with minimal upfront cash investments. Kiwitech also have a VC ecosystem to support minority tech startups fundraising efforts which is critical to their ability to scale beyond the MVP phase. Overall, I have not encountered another company within the software / system product development space that have a business model that fits so well with the innovation ecosystem and it has served my company very well so far in supporting our clients.

What was the project name that you have worked with KiwiTech?

NursesBnB, a platform to support travel healthcare workers to find and book housing.

Describe your project in brief

This project is to build the MVP for early stage tech startup NursesBnB. NursesBnB had not yet secured a significant amount of funding but with Kiwitech’s cash / equity business model we were able to sign a deal to have them provide great value in starting the MVP build for us. This will allow us to show more early stage market traction and build greater investor interest in order to accelerate our future projected growth and execute on our product roadmap in the medium term.

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

Cash plus equity model to support early stage tech startups.

Availability of key personnel to quickly scope efforts on new project request.

Quality of communication throughout the project and ability to accommodate changes.

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

More detailed market understanding of where the end product will be launched would be helpful.

Review Summary

My startup (Skillpics) was forced into a rebuild after a dreadful experience with a local dev firm in Calgary, Canada. We choose KiwiTech as they were referred to us through another founder who had built tow MedTech startups with KiwiTech. The rebuild was a cost effective way to get our platform back in market and with a scalable foundation. We were very impressed with the collaboration on the designs, project management organization and communication, as well as the code quality. Our build was on time and on budget. Unfortunately, the pandemic derailed our market penetration strategy and we ended up pivoting into a completely new market segment and product, but plan to revive Skillpics in the near future.

What was the project name that you have worked with KiwiTech?

Skillpics wed app rebuild and UI/UX redesign

Describe your project in brief

The project was a rebuild of our current web application Skillpics, with new UI/UX mobile and web screens. Skillpics was a freelance marketplace for students. The engagement was a team based approach, as both of us founders were non-technical. We had a PM, Tech Lead, Backend Dev, Frontend Dev, QA and a UI/UX designer from KiwiTech.

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

Very good communication and organization, despite the tech team located off-shore

The code quality was excellent and was the scalable foundation we expected

The UI/UX design work was excellent and the process to execute the screens was collaborative

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

As a team, I felt we did more than the necessary internal QA, but this could have been a result of our own perfectionism

Review Summary

KiwiTech came highly recommended by another partner of theirs who we trust. That recommendation proved out and KiwiTech has met or exceeded our expectations throughout our journey bringing expertise in design, app development for both iOS and Android, web development, and backend development. Our CTO was skeptical going into the project based on prior experiences he'd had with offshore teams but he's now completely converted.

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

The high degree of professionalism and ongoing involvement of KiwiTech's senior management in our project

KiwiTech's ability to flex resources as needed to meet our needs while maintaining continuity

The capabilities of the KiwiTech developers who have proven to be both high quality as well as creative problem solvers

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

While we didn't skip a beat, a few of the developers on our project left KiwiTech along the way. This turnover was not disruptive and is not uncommon.

I have been working with KiwiTech for more than 4 years and have known their leadership team since 2016. They are an extremely professional, seamless extension to our in-house tech team. I highly recommend them to any company that wants to efficiently scale their software development without increasing their in-house overhead. KiwiTech's team of experienced technologists, project managers leadership personnel has continuously proven to me that we made a great choice when deciding to work with them years ago!

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

Review Summary

Over 4 years, Kiwitech has consistently delivered excellent results in building 4 web and mobile native apps in 3 different markets. While their team has turned over completely during our tenure, they have consistently delivered great results and ensured continuous service. The team is very much supportive and has been there for us round the clock. I would definitely recommended Kiwitech to like minded people.

Review Summary

We started with KiwiTech in 2019 to build an MVP for our application. That worked well enough for us to drive a Seed Round in 2021. KiwiTech then built out the system to a working prototype. The web app is stable, robust functions, and provides the functionality for us to continue operating while we are working on a Series A round. We also engaged KiwiTech to create our Mobile App for Android and iOS. This was done in a timely manner and follows the flow of the web app while incorporating features that are native to mobile. We have support contracts with KiwiTech for ongoing operations and maintenance. We are working on designs to enhance the system based on user engagement. This includes proprietary IP we develop inhouse, which KiwiTech is then able to integrate into the app. We expect to be operating with KiwiTech for several more years. The cost-benefit of their teams is amazing and we can't meet it with in-house staff.

Review Summary

We've worked closely with Kiwitech for several years and they've been a reliable partner throughout. At each stage, we've entrusted them with more and more of our code, including a complex AI / ML data science project and they haven't dissappointed.

What was the project name that you have worked with KiwiTech?

AI / ML for cloud enabled device.

Describe your project in brief

We provided Kiwitech with raw data and they turned it into an exceptionally well trained algorithm, providing valuable insight about optimizations throughout. We got what we needed and learned how to be even better moving forward.

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

They have a large, dedicated team with diverse skill sets and product offerings.

They have thoughtful, engaged executives who track each project and follow up to make sure you're satisfied.

Cost efficiency is high when sufficient planning goes into each project.

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

They could spend more time justifying and negotiating resource allocation specific to each project.

Reporting, invoicing, and resource allocation tracking could be improved. Could use more detail on monthly spend.
