Please introduce your company and give a brief about your role within the organization.
Vinta is a well-established software development company with a decade of experience in the industry. Over the years, we have built a reputation for delivering top-notch solutions and services to a diverse clientele. Our core areas of expertise lie in staff augmentation and web development.

As the Founder and CEO of Vinta, my role within the organization encompasses a broad range of responsibilities. I am deeply committed to the company's vision and values, and my primary focus is on steering Vinta toward continued growth and excellence.

In this capacity, I am responsible for setting the strategic direction of the company, defining our long-term goals, and ensuring that our team consistently delivers exceptional results to our clients. I also oversee the development of strong partnerships, both with our clients and within the industry, to foster collaboration and innovation.
Moreover, I am passionate about nurturing a company culture that values its people. At Vinta, we believe that our people are our greatest asset, and my role involves fostering an environment where our team can thrive and continue to push boundaries in software development.

In summary, as the Founder and CEO of Vinta, I am dedicated to upholding our reputation for excellence, guiding our strategic direction, and fostering a dynamic and collaborative work environment that enables our team to deliver outstanding results for our clients.
What is the story behind starting this company?
The story behind starting Vinta is one of shared vision and a deep belief in the transformative power of software engineering. In May 2013, I and two other fellow developers from Recife, Brazil, united with a common goal: to establish a software development business that transcended the conventional boundaries of coding.

In essence, the company's journey began with a profound belief in the human aspect of software engineering and a commitment to helping businesses realize their product visions through technology. To achieve this mission, we understood that exceptional software development wasn't solely about writing lines of code but also about the people behind those lines of code.

Over time, Vinta not only expanded its team but also attracted some of the most remarkable and talented individuals in the software development industry. Today, Vinta we take pride in our diverse team, which boasts not only high levels of technical expertise but also a shared passion for pushing boundaries and consistently delivering exceptional software solutions.
What are your company’s business model–in house team or third party vendors/ outsourcing?
We have a third-party vendor/outsourcing business model.
How does your company differentiate itself from the competition?
At Vinta, our competitive edge stems from our unwavering commitment to flexibility, deep technical expertise, and a proactive approach to managing technical debt.
We're a 10-year-old software house with a proven track record of success. We have worked with numerous clients across a wide range of industries, gaining a wealth of experience in solving complex technical challenges, saving time, and reducing risks.
We also can adapt swiftly to changing project needs and evolving client requirements, offering a tailored approach to each project.

Lastly, our extensive expertise allows us to manage technical debt proactively, easing the long-term burden on our clients and allowing them to focus on core features and business goals.
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive? If yes, what ratio of clients has been repetitive to you?
A substantial portion of our client base came from the Retail and Fintech sectors. However, our expertise extends beyond these domains, having successfully collaborated with clients from diverse industries, including Legal, Education, Marketing, Real Estate, Supply Chain, and Blockchain. We're pretty flexible and can tackle different industries' needs.
Please share some of the services that you offer for which clients approach you the most for?
Clients most frequently turn to us for our two core services:

Staff Augmentation: Our expertise in providing talented professionals to complement your existing team is a popular choice among clients. Whether they need additional developers, designers, or other tech specialists, we've got them covered.

Web Development: Our web development services are in high demand. We specialize in creating robust, user-friendly web solutions that cater to various business needs, from retail services to custom web applications.
What is your customer satisfaction rate according to you? What steps do you take to cater to your customer’s needs and requirements?
We're proud to say that our customers who've been with us for a while have given us a solid 5-star rating. But let's talk about how we keep our customers happy.

We recognize that continuous improvement is vital. That's why we actively engage in product discovery and maintain proactive feedback loops. This collaborative approach allows us to refine and enhance the product continuously. We swiftly navigate the next steps, leveraging valuable insights from users and aligning them with our client's business strategy. This ongoing dialogue ensures that we remain in sync with their objectives and deliver solutions that evolve with their needs.

In essence, our commitment to maintaining open channels of communication, actively seeking feedback, and continuously refining our approach sets the foundation for exceptional customer satisfaction and long-term success.
What kind of support system do you offer to your clients to cater to their queries and issues?
When it comes to supporting our clients' queries and concerns, we've got a robust system in place. We're strong proponents of an async-first approach, emphasizing efficient communication and collaboration. However, we're just a message away when our clients need us most.

For communication, we like to utilize Slack, Clickup, and Jira. These tools provide us with clear channels and regular updates, allowing us to overcome any potential barriers and ensure transparent communication.
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 work with competitive hourly rates based on the professional's role and seniority level. In terms of payment, we generate monthly invoices solely based on the team's actual hours worked. To keep transparency, we share a regular report with a detailed breakdown of the team's hours and non-worked days. Payments are facilitated through international wire transfers.
Do you take in projects that meet your basic budget requirement? If yes, what is the minimum requirement? If no, what minimum budget you have worked for?
We are flexible when it comes to taking on projects, and our decision is influenced by various factors, primarily the project's profile and its strategic value. We don't have a strict minimum budget requirement, as we assess each project on a case-by-case basis.

Our approach is to evaluate the project's scope, complexity, timeline, and alignment with our expertise and strategic goals. If a project holds significant strategic value, even if it falls below what might be considered a standard budget threshold, we may still consider it. Conversely, a project with a larger budget may not be accepted if it doesn't align with our core competencies or strategic objectives.

Our goal is to ensure that any project we undertake has a reasonable budget that allows us to deliver a high-quality solution while also meeting the client's objectives. We prioritize a collaborative approach where we work closely with clients to understand their needs and tailor our services accordingly.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2022?
In 2022, our projects typically fell within a specific price range to ensure that we could deliver high-quality solutions while meeting the needs of our clients. Our minimum budget threshold for projects in 2022 was in the range of $15,000 to $30,000. It's important to note that project budgets can vary significantly based on factors such as the complexity of the solution, the industry, the size of the client's organization, and specific project requirements. Our approach was to work closely with clients to determine their project's unique needs and then provide a budget estimate that aligned with those needs and our commitment to delivering quality outcomes.
Where do you see your company in the next 10 years?
We do not aspire to become a large corporation in the next 10 years; our primary focus remains on ensuring the quality of the software we deliver. Our vision for the coming decade centers on continuous improvement and maintaining relevance in our market, all while earning recognition from our valued customers.

Splendid Spoon is a New York-based wellness company that delivers ready-to-eat, plant-based, gluten-free meals nationwide. When they approached Vinta, they ran a generic platform for subscription businesses called Cratejoy. But new features were needed to make service more personal for each user and improve the delivery processes automation.

Splendid Spoon contacted Vinta to build a custom platform tailored to their needs from the ground up, particularly one that could allow for both recurring and prepaid plans. That is one of our most requested services due to our knowledge of MVPs. We allocated a dedicated team of consultants to collaborate constantly and transparently with the Splendid Spoon team to build the new platform.

Business Services

PlusPlus CEO, Marko Gargenta, is from San Francisco. He was one of the founders of Marakana, a software training company acquired by Twitter. At Twitter [University], he had the mission of helping teams share knowledge. With PlusPlus, he wants to recreate the magic of peer learning in other organizations. Marko approached Vinta to develop the MVP of his project. MVP development is one of our most sought services. Here at Vinta, we understand the startup process and know how to adapt to its challenges. If the client needs the first version out quickly, we know how to help them. This goes by identifying features worth having now and which can be left for later iterations.

Legal & Compliance

Alt Legal started with a bold mission: to bring IP docketing firms in the US to a new age. Differentiating their platforms from others, they focus on automation, simplicity, and collaboration.

AltLegal’s first approached us to help deliver new features, increase code quality and reduce the bug count. However, we always start a project with a thorough inspection of the codebase we’ll be working on. While at it, we realized it’d take longer to improve everything than it’d be to create a whole new platform from scratch.

Here at Vinta, we know a confusing user experience generally leads to complex and nested code. With our years of experience, we've developed a process to keep designing and development moving smoothly.

Review Summary

I've enjoyed the experience working with Vinta software! They have been communicative on their process, they kept us informed of blockers, potential pitfalls, and quickly and efficiently. We presented our ideas to the company designers who kept themselves inline with our requests, and offered additional solutions or flows that would assist our customers. They then provided that information to the engineering team through clear pathways, resulting in a product that perfectly aligns with our vision.
