Web Dev and Design for E-commerce Platform
RubyGarage stood amongst other providers out with the questions they asked to understand the idea and the fundamentals of our business. They also gave us a ton of valuable insights related to the end-users and solutions they may need based on the market research they conducted.
We had worked with the several vendors prior RubyGarage and failed to find the common language and build an effective collaboration. They were unorganized, couldn’t provide the realistic time and budget estimates and thus were delaying the project.
On the back of this, we were a bit intimidated of working with the outsourcing company. Yet, RubyGarage showed exceptional project management. Yes, it took several weeks to set the efficient collaboration but RubyGarage was extremely responsive during the whole development cycle addressing any question we had promptly.
RubyGarage is extremely flexible and quickly adapts to the new project demands. Whenever we had a new requirement they never said to us no. They always were trying to realize our ideas in the most cost-efficient solution. Their fast-paced delivery allowed us to finish the project ahead of schedule.
On a global scale, our collaboration was successful. Our client praised the new website for its modern look and functionality that contributed to reduced bounce rates for their e-commerce platform.
Perfect for startups
What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?
Transparent approach to cost estimates, great UX designers, professional employees, modern collaboration tools.
As well as developing turnkey solutions for our clients, we also create our own products that dramatically reduce the time and cost of the development from scratch. For instance, we developed a web platform for online consultations and a multi-vendor marketplace.
When the first course was completed, a lot of students asked me what was next and where they could find a job. I didn’t know how to help them and decided to create a company where these young talents could get their first work experience. I left my job and established RubyGarage.
The students that successfully completed the course soon joined RubyGarage. I took its name from Ruby: a gem, and, obviously, a programming language as a core of our tech stack and expertise of our team. The second part is Garage because I wanted to maintain an energetic and open-minded atmosphere in the company.
We continue conducting our courses two times a year for free and recruit the best students. This spring, we started our first global online course.
Today, there are more than 150 people working at RubyGarage, and it's just the beginning of our incredible journey.
As well as that, we also create our own products. We've got requests from many clients for the same basic functionality, again and again, so one day we asked ourselves: "Why not create a white-label once, so we can scale it to multiple clients and save their time and money?" We've created several solutions that allow us to create products faster, providing a high level of customization. That's a win-win.
Take, for example, MarketAge ‒ our white-label solution that allows us to build any type of marketplace: for services like TaskRabbit and Fiverr, for selling products like Etsy and Amazon, for booking like Airbnb with the minimum time-to-market.
To our clients who have an online shop, like Shopify, and want to develop a mobile app, we offer a hassle-free solution ShopApp ‒ an open-source application that provides an interface for turning an online Shopify store into a custom app for both iOS and Android in less than a month.
Another product we’re proud of is ExpertBox. ExpertBox is a SaaS to streamline clients’ processes at every stage of communication with their customers.
ExpertBox allows businesses from such domains as healthcare, law, education, recruiting, and any other consulting specialist to deliver expertise online. Our software as a service helps clients to grow their customer base, automate workflow, communicate with clients from anywhere in the world via video meetings, automate payment flow, get valuable insights on their business, and more.
Our company is based on three pillars: streamlined processes, proven technologies, and talented people. These pillars allow us to stand out from competitors in many ways.
Our main priorities as a company are to provide our clients with maximum value, help them increase ROI, and establish long-term trusting relationships. That’s why the vast majority of our clients continue working with us after the project is complete and recommend us to their business partners and colleagues.
A detailed feature breakdown list allows us to define the scope of work. After that, we gather a meeting of backend, frontend, and quality assurance engineers, UX and UI designers, and a business analyst with high seniority level to estimate each feature to be developed. The team analyses the lean canvas and feature breakdown list, estimate how long it will take to develop each feature, and thinks through the architecture of the future product.
The results of this process is a detailed work breakdown structure that shows the time different team members need to develop every feature, as well as the total project budget and timeline estimation.
● Perform in-depth business analysis that allows us to create functionality to solve the main task and satisfy the main needs of end-users. When focusing on these primary goals, we remove all secondary things that can creep the scope.
● Build UI/UX design based on our own design system. We utilize some ready-made templates and collections of repeatable components to speed up the pace of creation, leaving enough room for innovation and creativity.
● Develop back and front-end based on ready-made white-label products of our company and open-source solutions.
We chose Ruby because it has a wide range of advantages that makes it a perfect fit for working with startups. First of all, it’s time-efficient. Ruby on Rails contains many ready-made plugins and modules that make app development time 30-40% shorter in comparison with other technologies.
Second of all, Ruby is also cost-effective by providing developers with numerous gems and making code easy to support and maintain. As well as all that, code written in Ruby is high-quality thanks to the development principles that it promotes. It’s also scalable and secure because of features built into the framework and enabled by default.
For front-end development, we use React JS technology as its virtual DOM allows us to create efficient and high performance client-side of a web app or a website. React JS also helps us reduce the development time with its reusable components while a large community and great support of such giant contributors as Facebook and Airbnb make us confident that React JS is only gaining its momentum.
When it comes to mobile development, we prefer to work with React Native technology. We do have expertise in native development based on Kotlin and Swift. Nevertheless, React Native is a great solution for those startups who want to build a budget-friendly product, speed up the development, and get one application for two mobile platforms with a performance of a native app.
Every tool or technology we use has to meet the criteria for fast development and high-quality. When we choose a hosting provider, we follow the same requirements. That’s why we prefer Amazon Web Services. AWS is the best solution for startups that exist on the market today. It provides flexibility, great computational resources, and simple scalability for a reasonable price.
Even though our main technology is Ruby and Ruby on Rails, we don't settle on them. We use Ruby for APIs development, but we also use Go for big data processing, Python for machine learning, and Node.JS for WebSockets management. Our team can use popular Ruby tools like Ruby on Rails, Trailblazer, ActiveAdmin, Sidekiq to create a back-end part of an app. When it comes to automation frameworks, we can take RSpec or Capybara. We use Amazon Web Services for hosting because it’s reliable and has a fair price. To manage the infrastructure of apps, we use Docker because it's simple and requires minimum configuration, which means saved time in terms of a project.
For the front-end part of our products, we choose ReactJS, HTML5, and CSS3. This tech stack is perfect to create rich, attractive interfaces that work seamlessly.
If we need to create a mobile app, we can use languages for native development, like Kotlin or Swift, or develop a cross-platform app based on React Native that will work on both iOS and Android platforms equally well.
If a project is small and has a clearly defined scope of work, we recommend clients to go for a fixed price model. We offer a time and material pricing model for long-term projects with dynamic requirements where the scope can change.
At the same time, GoodFirms is a convenient platform for clients to find a trustworthy high-quality service provider with deep expertise and a wealth of experience.
