Nord Clan Executive Interview

Ilya Kashtankin
Ilya Kashtankin
Founder
Visit Profile
Please introduce your company and give a brief about your role within the company?
Nord Clan is a young company that's growing at an accelerated pace. We deliver software development services and solutions for medium to large businesses to ensure their competitive edge in terms of digitalization of their services, customer communication, and business processes management. Our expertise is in custom software development and computer vision solutions. My role concerns strategy planning, investment in perspective ideas, and setting up the new domains to provide our business growth.
What was the idea behind starting this organization?
My partners and I have succeeded in the software development industry for over 16 years and have gained sufficient experience in building enterprise software, product design, project management, and customer care. We, as top managers, can carry over our successful experience in the management and development of an IT business to our own company. Making our customers happy with the services we provide is what brings us joy and enthusiasm to carry on our expertise.
What is your company’s business model–in house team or third party vendors/ outsourcing?
We are a software engineering company. In this regard, the majority of works is performed within our development offices. However, we do practice working on the Customer site when it comes to requirement gathering, demonstrations, solution deployments, and user immersion processes.
How is your business model beneficial from a value addition perspective to the clients compared to other companies' models?
Considering other things being equal, we bring Customer product to life faster than the rest of the field. This is possible due to the following factors: 
  • Focus on certain industries. We know the specifics and intricacies of a particular business. Catching the meaning at once allows us to offer viable solutions for the Customers within a short period and without silly questions being exchanged back and forth.
  • Ready solutions or modules (know-how practices) 
  • Our workflow with vendors and contractors allows us to seamlessly scale the development in keeping with the pace of Customer’s growing/increasing demands.
Eventually, treating every single customer like one of a kind is what gets us the competitive edge. We listen to our clients; manage their expectations and requirements so that at the end of the day, they receive an outstanding result.
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive?
We focus on fintech, food tech, and health care industries. The company is still young, although we have been able to accumulate a large pool of loyal customers already successfully. We grow all together in long-term partnerships and deep collaboration.  Every customer comes back to us with new tasks and projects.
Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing software.
It is a challenging question. Many factors and parameters are having their effect on the timeframe of developing software. First of all, we need to hear our customers out, understand his/her requirements, expectations, and due dates. Once the product, scope of works, customer expectations, and budget are clear, we would elaborate on technologies to be used further and come up with an estimated delivery date. Also, sometimes, the scope of works could change as per customer vision that will also affect the delivery time. I would always cite an analogy to my colleagues that software product is like a baby; it is changing, growing, and evolving. Most importantly, it becomes mature, just like the human counterpart, but at a different pace. You can only estimate the delivery time since there are plenty of factors that have a direct influence on it, and some of them are hidden along the way of development.
How much effort in terms of time goes into developing the front end and back end of software?
It depends on the project itself, really, so the ratio is continually changing. But the best-case scenario will be a turnkey solution that we are creating for our customers from the ground up where, I would say, up to 25-30% is taken up by the requirement processing and communication with the client and internally. Consequently, 45%-50% of time and efforts go to development (both front and back end, and the ratio varies according to project specifics), and the rest is booked for quality assurance.  Interestingly, there are cases where we can significantly increase development pace and shorten time to market the product if there are appropriate ready solutions or modules used for the backend.  A unique front end that is adapted for customer’s design and user experience is always an integral part of any project.
What are the key parameters to be considered before selecting the right framework for developing software?
There are three significant aspects. First is infrastructure, technology stack that is already in use on the client-side, and the in-house team expertise. The second aspect is the search and validation of ready solutions used as an integral part of the entire product (such as CRM, TMS, BI, our modules, and algorithms). Also, Integration difficulty evaluation. The third aspect: the selection of the frameworks is determined by the pace and ease of development, available community that maintains and expands it.
Which languages & frameworks do you prefer to use in development of software?
Java Spring, NET Core, React, React Native, and QA expertise is what makes Nord Clan stand out in this highly competitive environment and covers pretty much any requirement of our customers.
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of software?
We always have a friendly and honest talk with Customer to find out their budget requirements and then proceed with elaborating on the solution.  It is a well-known fact that clients aim for to be operating within their budget and feel comfortable. Once that budget is determined, we provide them with options as to what they can expect.

On the other hand, we are able to manage Customer’s expectations and shift their focus to costs that matter most and will benefit the product and business.
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.)
Payment structure varies from project to project and should be liaised with customers before the development begins. However, there are two significant approaches within Nord Clan:
1) Time and Material basis. It is a widely known and common practice for the industry. The customer gets billed for the actual time our development team spends on the project.
2) We break the entire project down to milestones, which, consequently, gets approved by the customer. Afterward, payment is projected for every milestone.
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 are always open for any opportunities, so we process every request with care. However, we are focusing on projects within $35,000 - $ 1 000,000 USD range.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2019?
The minimum and maximum price range for the projects of the past year was between $35,000 - $500,000.

Here is my feedback on working with my colleagues at Nord Clan.
The development of the application is done with the assistance from the Nord Clan team. With the tech lead in place, we basically work together as a substantial team.
Tasks are being performed in a timely manner and oftenly come ready even before the actual due date.
Communication is very sound and productive. Everyone is able to explain tasks in simple, clear language and get them across to the business. Guys always readily answer questions, always attend meetings if needed. The team handles a very large amount of functionality, from new sections of the app to technical tasks and support for the app.
We are very thankful that all team members come forward with initiatives to improve the app, to stabilize and improve the system. This helps us a lot in identifying problems in advance and planning solutions. The Nord Clan team is composed of specialists with great development experience, but what is more important - friendly

Review Summary

We approached NordClan to perform volume testing and performance testing of the Federal Tourism Agency portal. First of all, the team conducted the performance testing of the portal and determined the maximum number of users which kept the stability of the system. They also measured the response time on frequently used operations. Secondly, when conducting the volume testing, the team was able to evaluate the state of the portal after several hundreds of thousands of touristic infrastructures were added into the system. Additionally, we were provided with ready test scenarios for independent use in the future. It was our pleasure to be working with the NordClan: the team promptly conducted tests, gave detailed and clear reports with recommendations. That was a quality work in all aspects. We have complete confidence that our portal will handle the load at the release stage.

Review Summary

We decided to make our Pocketkey ACS (Access Control System) product as easy to manage and convenient for our customers as possible.

In this regard, we approached Nord Clan for assistance - our reliable partner that already had experience in developing ACS solutions, which was a deciding factor for us really.

Nord Clan managed to quickly assemble a team with project management and demonstrated the result within a short timeframe. The outcome is an ACS with a user-friendly UI, which combines several functionalities and features such as: setting up employee roles, visitor authentication, granting access rights to the particular premises, decision making for access rights ,traffic data storagging.

We were able to acquire a new market segment, thanks to Nord Clan professionals. It is now possible for us to sell our product to customers who previously did not have club software. Among them are traditional businesses that are not digital in nature.

On a separate note, I would like to mention the involvement and immersion of the Nord Clan team into the project. In the process of development they did not limit themselves to the set tasks, but additionally proposed new features with visual content: informative graphs and charts, which allow the user to see traffic dynamics, the number of visitors and discipline of employees.

We are definitely focusing on further product development, so there are a lot of new features in the pipeline. To be completely honest with you, it’s somewhat easy yet inspirational to form a new backlog for our product with Nord Clan experts. They are always out there to give us a hand!

Review Summary

TuTu.ru has just completed the transition to the remote working-environment due to pandemic. Considering that, it was necessary to automate particular HR-processes since we could not just casually see each other, say, having a cup of tea together to go over some matters verbally. We obviously required a tool that would allow an employee to promptly obtain information without missing out on important updates.

We decided to buy a product that worked right out of the box with the possibility to further customize it to our needs. The following features and attributes were crucial for us: short response timings when working with a significant number of users, integration with Active Directory and Telegram.

In addition to the above, a survey kit was implemented by the Nord Clan team. We got not only the product itself but also thorough requirement analytics at every stage of implementation, which, indeed, we were pleasantly surprised by.

The eventual result exceeded all our expectations: we were able to launch a full-fledged HR-service in no time, which allowed us to create surveys, make newsletters and collect statistics.

On a separate note, I would like to point out the Nord Clan team's interest in delivering the result. They were able to take the initiative and make the product fit perfectly for our needs so that it is convenient to work with.

We have already received the first positive feedback from our users, so in the near future we plan to continue developing the product's functionality together with Nord Clan!

Review Summary

"Renaissance Health” is the first Russian health insurtech company that works in digital format.

The specific feature of the project is the digital service for health management: medical campaign information, interactive map for hospitals and clinics, doctor appointments, SOS button for an emergency, online consultations. Consequently, we are planning to include several more services into this application.

In order to maintain the planned pace of service development, we have decided to engage an external development team. Experience of working with major insurance companies and their positive feedback were the main criteria for choosing a partner for development purposes.

The Nord Clan team was able to meet all the criteria above. We were pleasantly surprised by their unique approach, pace of immersion and the result delivered. We are looking forward to working with Nord Clan further on. Moreover, we do recommend those guys for our partners out there who are still skeptical about external development companies. With companies like Nord Clan it is a surprisingly successful experience!

We have recently decided to expand the functionality of our NaumenServiceDesk solution by adding a system for collecting statistical data and visualizing it in the form of charts, graphs, summaries and tables - dashboards (stay tuned for the release). We trusted this development to the Nord Clan as an external team to take care of this component. For us, this was a radically new experience - previously, the entire development was conducted on “in house” basis. The Nord Clan team implemented the turnkey application, including integration with the main Naumen Service Desk product (having immersed in our API, architecture features and business processes) A fully functional application was released within the scheduled time. The team continues to support and work on new releases of the component. Overall, I would consider the experience of working with Nord Clan to be highly positive and productive. I hope that in the future we will be able to be even faster with our releases of new features to our customers thanks to this team. So taking the development on outsource basis is actually not that scary. We definitely recommend Nord Clan!

eoplePass was established in 2019 to develop and provide the market with the best solution for identifying and registering visitors and employees at security checkpoints.

To help us create a web and mobile applications, we needed to find a professional company that provides custom software development services.

Considering many recommendations we had received from our colleagues working at fintech industry, we made a decision to approach the Nord Clan company.

The primary objective of the first stage was to create an MVP version that would allow both registration and admission by: QR code, mobile key or touchless biometrics.

We were very much pleased with the result and continued our project further on with Nord Clan.

It happened to be that the main stage of development was at its prime when a well-known crisis with COVID-19 virus hit the entire World. It particularly affected the service sector. At these challenging times, the Nord Clan company proved itself as a reliable partner, which basically saved our product and gave us the opportunity to maintain our position on the market.

We would like to thank the Nord Clan Company for its contribution to the success of our business!

We approached Nord Clan for help with developing a large project integrating speech recognition components into an existing workflow platform, along with new functionality and UI. The Nord Clan team quickly got to grips with the subject area, taking care of several the most complex tasks: turnkey component development (text editor), development of REST-service for API interactions, and integration of our (EMR.AI's) services with the existing platform of a large US medical enterprise.

Nord Clan showed a high level of expertise in backend and frontend development, great communication skills, and excellent flexibility in how they could assist us. I would like to especially thank the Nord Clan team for being so proactive in helping us address challenges that arose during the project, which allowed us to significantly improve the overall productivity and speed up the delivery time to our customer.

If you are looking for a software partner capable of both turnkey solution development and integration, Nord Clan is a great option. We highly recommend their services.
