Designation – Founder
Nature of Business – Mobile Application
1. What was the objective of the project you did with Sphinx Solutions?
The main objective was to develop an app which helps people find cheapest bars and beer pints across the United States. We add bars to our site and communicate with bar owners and help our users find what they are looking for; whether it’s a specific type of experience for going out at bars, specific drinks or the bars which are within their price range. There is no application out there such as this, so, we kind of just wanted to see if I could facilitate an application creation like this as there is no other app that does the same thing as we do.
2. What is the scope of the project? What all did Sphinx Solutions do for you?
Well, they took our existing code - the iOS code and improved. They also improved our web database and created an Android application for us, so they improved on two existing components and created the third.
3. What was the estimated timeframe committed for the completion of the project?
They were very quick with the process. I think the whole thing took around two months, which considering the scope of the improvement and the manufacturing of the new app, was very good. The improvements were large improvements, adding that kind of features changes our code completely. I think it started in June 2015.
4. How much time did it actually take for completing the task?
It got completed around mid of August 2015. I think it was a little bit faster than what they committed us. We haven’t had a bug since a long time and when I look at our crashes online and we get barely one a day, which is very good.
5. Please provide an approximate figure (in $) for the work done?
It was around little more than eighteen thousand dollars.
6. Did they exceed the committed price point and why?
No, they were very good with the price.
7. How did you come to know about Sphinx Solutions?
There was an application that I liked on my phone called Vivino, it’s an app that lets you explore different wines and I went down from there to figure out who developed that app and then found them on one of the online freelance job portals.
8. Why did you choose to partner with them?
For one, I liked their previous work, I loved the Vivino App and how it functions and the way it looked and then once I chatted with the team there. It started with a good fit and a good price for us, so the match was very good. It was a good fit, they worked at times we won’t be working, obviously because of the time difference and also the price range was very good.
9. Did Sphinx Solutions evaluate your project scope and requirements correctly?
Yes, definitely. I was very satisfied with their work and their communication. I was always able to talk to the CEO, either at my start of the day or at the end of the day and he was always available on either email or Skype.
10. Did the company deliver as per your expectations?
We didn’t really have expectations because this is the first kind of thing we have done and they are the first developers we worked with and I think they were really good at handling everything. We had a little bit of doubt because we had done a data version of the app, but considering we were a newbie, they were very good at explaining to us and walking the steady steps and guiding us too.
11. Are you satisfied with the sales and customer support service?
Yes, I am very happy with the customer support. Also as a part of the fees that we paid, they had three months of technical support if we had a crash or found a bug, they would fix it for us.
12. Is there anything that makes them stand out compared to other companies (core Strengths)?
For me, I would think that they were perfect; I would definitely recommend them to people who are new to this. They walked us through the process which could have been very confusing otherwise. They not only helped us understand but they taught us, which was important for us. They really took the time to make sure they won’t be doing anything that we weren’t okay with. They were quick, they were always available, they did good work, and they were creative when we sought their input, which was very nice as well.
13. According to you, is there any area that you think they can improve upon?
No, I don’t think so. I think they are very good.
14. Did they offer proactive consultative approach? (Technical advice, design changes etc.)
Yes, they definitely did. We are a very small team, it’s really just me and there were parts where I kind of sought their suggestion and said, “what do you think would look best here?” and they always presented me with a few options that I can choose from which is very considerate. Sometimes it’s difficult to imagine the whole thing without inputs.
15. On a scale of 1 - 5, how would you rate Sphinx Solutions on the following parameters: (Where 5 - extremely satisfied and 1 - not at all satisfied)
A. Quality of work.
C. Ability for Development
D. Ability for Design

H. How likely are you to recommend Sphinx Solutions to a colleague, out of five again.
