Riseup Labs has a fantastic UX/UI team, which means a lot when you are a bootstrap startup. They are very quick to understand our design sensibilities and also proactively come up with a lot of suggestions to improve the design as well as improve the overall user journey so that we could have a better and seamless experience for our candidates as well as for companies that are using our platforms. The developer quickly understands the team. I am very happy with my experience with them. We couldn’t have done this without the support of Riseup Labs.

I then contacted Riseup Labs, and they really gave me good information, support, and even more ideas to improve my app and complete the idea. The best reason to choose Riseup Labs is that they have experience with augmented reality apps.

Riseup Labs provides better communication than other agencies. As well, they’re more flexible when working with an integrated team. Other providers prefer to have a completely separate scope rather than working with our engineers.
Pros :
  • They excelled in project management and often exceeded their deadlines.
Cons :
  • I had no issues with them. They were very responsive and executed to what I had hoped and expected.

Executive Interview
Ershadul Hoque
Ershadul Hoque
CEO & Founder, Riseup Labs
Please introduce your company and give a brief about your role within the organization.
Riseup Labs is an ISO certified leading technology solution and service provider company in Bangladesh, focusing mostly on the Web, Mobile, XR, and Simulator technologies. We design and develop intelligent, innovative and sustainable web systems, mobile apps, games, and interactive entertainment experiences on multiple platforms. We have been in business since 2009 and have become major creators and publishers in the market by releasing many successful products. Also, become a trusted partner by delivering customized solutions and services to brands like UNICEF Bangladesh, Unicef HQ, Unicef Italy, Robi Axiata Limited, BBC Media Action, Government of Bangladesh and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Division. We also have international clients from different countries, like - USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Belarus & Israel.
My role in the organization is to make sure everyone is on the right path and moving towards the organization goals in the right way. I do regular weekly meetings and monthly progress meetings with different team leads. In those meetings I try to give solutions to the problems everyone is facing and progress they’re making for each project. Besides that, I also find time to meet our recurring clients periodically and try to understand their pain points and opinions about the services they’re getting from Riseup Labs.
What is the story behind starting this company?
Back in 2009 my initial plan was to open a game development startup. Being inspired by the release of iPhone & iPod by Apple, it was my intention to take the early advantage of the Apple app store platform and create casual games for the iOS users. We started with a small team of a few developers and artists. Everyone was very new to this platform and super excited to create some amazing experience for the iOS users. First game we made for iOS was ‘Tap Tap Ants’ and this game was downloaded more than 15 million times. We had great success from the beginning and we have released many successful games after that. After 2 years, we also started releasing mobile apps in utility, productivity and entertainment categories. Both the Apple app store and Google play store became crowded within a few years and it became very hard to become successful by publishing mobile apps and games. From then we started focusing on giving service in B2B. And it didn’t take long for us to also start getting success in B2B, within a few years we became one of the trusted sources for many companies.
What are your company’s business model–in house team or third party vendors/ outsourcing?
We have 2 models - project basis and resource hiring. Clients can give us the whole project by fixing a budget based on the scope of that project. On the other hand, if a client wants, they can hire resources on a monthly or daily basis to work for their project. Both have pros and cons. When clients give us a whole project within a fixed budget, there is no scope to bring major changes in the project while developing. We have to fix almost everyone during the initial research phase and we can’t change much when we start developing since we have a fixed budget and timeline on hand. But when clients hire resources, they have every opportunity to make changes and control project development by themselves. This can increase their development cost but on the other hand give flexibility to develop a great product.
How does your company differentiate itself from the competition?
Mostly we’re different from others in the following areas: we’re customer obsessed, we always try innovation, we think long term and try to bring excellence in the operation. When we start a project, we always work like this is our own product. We try to own it during the development phase. This really helps us to bring the best from everyone and give clients extra and more than their requirement within their budget. Making long term relationships with our clients is one of the core in our team. We never go for short term profit. We have 4 core values as follows:
●    Customer Obsession: Quality, Honesty, Commitment to Customers 
●    Eagerness to Invent: Innovation, Growth/Personal Development, Courage
●    Long Term Thinking: Proactivity, Diversity, Impact, Transparency, Trust
●    Operation Excellence: Professionalism, Teamwork, Fun, Simplicity, Collaboration, Ownership
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive? If yes, what ratio of clients has been repetitive to you?
We’re mostly serving the UN, NGO, Government, telco, health, ecommerce, education, and entertainment industries. But we’re not limited to these and open to any industry where we have the capability to contribute. Most of our customers are repetitive, around 80% of them are repetitive and that is because of our core values. We never found a client who marked us as a bad service provider. Most of them come back to us for upgrades and new projects. Sometimes they work as an evangelist of Riseup Labs and bring new customers for us.
Please share some of the services that you offer for which clients approach you the most for?
There are many services we offer to our clients. But clients approach mostly for app development and game development service. We have a huge history of success in the game and app industry and because of that reputation we usually get lots of clients. Also we rank well in google search for related keywords for these services, that's why we used to get organic leads from Google a lot. But recently after the pandemic, we have started getting a lot of approaches for web-based solutions, specially in ecommerce, elearning and ehealth industry.
What is your customer satisfaction rate according to you? What steps do you take to cater to your customer’s needs and requirements?
We have a very high customer satisfaction rate. We always survey our clients after a delivery or when a project is completed. Based on that report we evaluate everyone who had worked on that project. That’s why everyone in the team tries to give their best while developing the project and to meet client satisfaction. 
To care for clients' needs and requirements, we always try to be very friendly with our clients. We give them scopes to define their requirements. We also give them scope to give us change requests. We communicate with our clients very regularly and frequently to show our progress. We’re available in most of the online communication tools. We always try to listen to our clients' pain points and try to give them a solution which best fits their needs. All of these create a confidence level and level of trust in our clients, which motivates them to stick with us for more and more projects.
What kind of support system do you offer to your clients for catering to their queries and issues?
We offer 24 hours / 7 days customer service to our clients. We know how important it is to be available when our clients are looking for us to solve an issue or even to add a new feature in the shortest possible time. We’re always ready to work hard to add more values for our clients. We have a dedicated support team who took care of multiple channels where we used to get support responses from our clients. We always try to solve an issue immediately. If we can’t solve an issue immediately for technical reasons, we always keep communicating with our clients until we solve that issue.
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.)
We’re very flexible on the billing issue. We really give complete options to our customers. They can pay per feature, pay per milestone/phases/versions, pay per month, fixed cost, or pay in advance or pay at the end. We don’t force anything on the client. We discuss and decide mutually. But sometimes for large projects we try to get an advance at the beginning before committing. Similarly, we try to do the same for the clients with whom we’re working for the first time. Otherwise we’re very flexible and give clients every opportunity to design the billing structure.
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?
Yes, we take lots of projects which just meet our basic budget requirement. We don’t have any fixed minimum budget requirement but based on the project scope, we calculate the minimum budget we require to develop that project. Then we try to get that project with additional profit. But sometimes we don’t get what we were looking for. And sometimes we try to get a project even with minimum budget requirements. Mostly we make this decision when we want to improve our portfolio in that specific industry or we have a target to develop a similar product for the larger market.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2020?
This really depends on clients and type of requirements. Average project price range in 2020 was around USD 30,000. We had a few small projects that we normally do to strengthen our portfolio quality and gain experience. We normally don’t want to make good profit from those projects. On the other hand, we also had a few large projects that worked like fuel for the company and helped us to invest more to develop our own products for different platforms. This is one of our goals to develop sustainable SaaS products for the future which will help the company to depend less on the clients projects and be more like a product based company rather than only a service based company.
Where do you see your company in the next 10 years?
One of our goals is to establish SaaS based own products for the market. So that we can serve more clients with less effort and develop ourselves more like a product based company rather than only a service based company. We like to develop products which will solve problems for most of the businesses. In that way, we can resell the same products to many clients directly without or with required customization. Selling products to more clients means solving more problems for more people and making a better world. We have already started our SaaS based product development journey. We are focusing on developing apps/plugins/extensions for Shopify, Bigcommerce, Wordpress and Magento platforms to solve many problems ecommerce business owners are facing right now. We believe to serve 20 million+ ecommerce store owners better than ever before by creating better products for them.
