    INTERVIEWED BY APPFUTURA ON AUG 21, 2017

    Explain what your project was about.

    Developing web and mobile application to enter and track assets, pictures, videos, important papers.

    Explain to what scope extend Synergo was involved in your project.

    Synergo was responsible for UI/UX design, programming, system testing for the web and mobile applications.

    How did you get to meet the Synergo team and what led you to hiring them?

    Through a prior service partner relationship.

    How was their project management?

    Excellent. Organized, detailed, timely.

    Was the project completed as expected? Yes Was the time and the budget the same you agreed on?

    Yes. The team makes themselves available around the clock.

    · Did you find their expertise up to what you expected? Yes Did they require any kind of training from your end to understand your product?

    No, other than the typical and basic business knowledge exchange that has to happen. Otherwise, Synergo consistently brings new ideas and solutions to the table.

    Please highlight the best things of Synergo.

    They are very collaborative. The team works well together. They are respectful, intelligent, and courteous individuals. We’ve had a virtual relationship for years which has worked very well. We’ve gotten to know each other personally and professionally in that timeframe. I would highly recommend Synergo for any software development projects.

    Is there anything you believe Synergo could improve on?

    Not that I can specifically think of.

    INTERVIEWED BY APPFUTURA ON MAR 30, 2017

    Could you please say the name of your company and your position at the time?

    The company is Samsung. I was the head of the deployment. My division was responsible for validating and ensuring that all the software apps and devices that were going to the US market were market and consumer ready.

    What was the project about?

    Synergo Group was hired to support our efforts in building an inventory management tool. The inventory management and calendar tools focus was to make device launches, app preloads, maintenance releases and preload updates, as well as making the conditions of the apps ready for preload visible.

    Thereby, besides the devices, it was essential to also understand the impact of the operating systems and the device feature set differences like screen resolution, CPU type and so on. We needed to manage various metrics here and understand the effect it would have to make any change. Which version is going to be affected, which device is going to be affected, what test do we need to run and in which cases. So the project was about creating this very complex system with 4 essential components: the inventory management, the planning and scheduling tool, the reporting tool and the device inventory in itself.

    To what scope extend was the Synergo team involved?

    Synergo was involved in the full software spec that we needed.

    How did you meet Synergo and why did you decide to hire them?

    I had done work with them in the past, so there were two key aspects: I knew how they worked and I was able to trust them. I knew they could even work on weekends if necessary to make sure we met our deadlines.

    We interviewed several other companies, including major ones, but ended up with Synergo because of my previous experience as well as the cost they offered. They were not the cheapest, but they were in a good range and it made the decision quite easy.

    At the end of the day, it was also a matter of personal preference.

    How was their project management?

    It was all there. We had the tools in place. We used Redmine, so we were able to understand what tasks were being executed. We had the planning tool in place too. Everything was there.

    We used Agile to manage the sprints and manage the rundown on what they were executing. We always knew what we were going to do two weeks ahead.

    There were some communication issues in the beginning that improved in time. But I believe that happens in most IT projects and we learned how to manage it.

    Was the time and budget for the project the same that was initially estimated by Synergo?

    It was all good.

    I don't have the exact numbers with me, but we initially had an available budget of around 78K USD that eventually went up to 120K USD.

    Within that budget we managed to execute everything that we wanted. Synergo Group was also willing to invest a little bit more time and effort to make some stuff happen that was initially not thought through.

    How did Synergo adapt to the dynamics of such a big corporation like Samsung?

    That was not really a concern. Our team was quite independent. We were 30 people and we did not have to put up with all protocols and dynamics of the company.

    You already mentioned you knew Synergo and was convinced of their expertise. Did they require any specific training for this project?

    They managed everything on their own.

    Could you highlight the best things about Synergo Group?

    Flexibility. The willingness they have to make it work with the client. The willingness to not charge an arm and a leg, but rather complete efforts in a way that they are making sense. They see the project more of an investment on both sides, not just as a client-provider relationship.

    Any areas you think Synergo could improve on?

    A strong definition of QA. I wish there would have been somebody at the other side taking care of this from the beginning. I feel everyone knew this was something that was lacking.

    In the beginning they where reluctant to screen everything right away so there was a bit of back and forth. However, we managed to work things out.

    Is there anything else you would like to share about your experience with Synergo?

    All in all, the project was super successful. The Samsung team I left was thriving on the capabilities we had initiated in 2013. Even today, you can still see the impact of that – minus the Note 7 battery issue!

    INTERVIEWED BY APPFUTURA ON MAR 23, 2017

    Please present yourself and your business.

    Alex Brodsky, formerly CEO of IGIGI, Inc. I sold the company in 2016.

    What were your development needs?

    We needed someone to support our technical infrastructure - website (e-commerce, blog), integration with our partners, warehouse management / fulfillment.

    What was the scope of work in which Synergo was involved?

    Synergo was involved fully. They managed the new feature implementation, maintenance, support.

    How did you get to know the Synergo team and why did you hire them?

    A friend of mine knew the principal and recommended the Synergo team to me. After analysis and a number of communications, I decided to use them.

    How was their project management?

    Very good.

    Was the project completed as expected? Was the time and the budget the same you agreed on?

    It was an ongoing project. But yes, it was on time and within budget.

    Did you find their expertise up to what you expected? Did they require any kind of training from your end to understand your product?

    Yes, their expertise was excellent. I had to explain to them a little bit about the system and then Synergo ran with it.

    What would you say are the best things about Synergo?

    Great, smart, structured guys who are willing to go the extra mile.

    Is there anything you believe Synergo could improve on?

    Not really.

    Is there anything else about your experience with Synergo that you would like to share?

    No. I enjoyed working with Synergo.

  • News Aggregator Mobile App
    Client: Budget: $10,000 – $15,000 (USD)

    Synergo developed a a mobile app poorly developed by another provider.

    The app is a news aggregator app with multiple feeds and it consists of a back end and an API built in PHP, as well as two mobile clients, developed natively in iOS and Android.

    The scope of the engagement was to perform minimal optimizations to the code, both on the API and the mobile clients, in order to stabilize the app and productize it, so that the customer can publish on the market a stable, scalable solution.

    INTERVIEWED BY APPFUTURA ON MAR 20, 2017

    Could you please introduce your business?

    I am an entrepreneur, although not full time, and I invest in mobile apps.

    To what extend was Synergo involved in the scope of this project?

    Synergo Group fixed the problems with the mobile app which the first development company was not able to. I made the list of issues and shared it with them.
    The scope covered fixing issues with the android app, the iOS app and the API.

    How did you get to meet the Synergo team and what led you to hiring them?

    I have a friend of mine who was dealing with them in another app development project and he was happy with their quality.

    How was their project management?

    The project management at Synergo Group was excellent in general. I was communicating with a project manager who was managing the whole project development team.
    I was asked to communicate with the team members just to clarify how certain features should work within the app development.

    Was the time and the budget the same you initially agreed on with Synergo?

    Actually, Synergo completed the project better than expected. This based on recommendations during development that we implemented in the project.
    The budget and time were as agreed on before starting the project. Except, for the new requirements I asked them to implement om the app. They charged extra for those but the good thing is they managed to deliver them within the initial agreed on time frame.

    Did you find Synergo Group had expertise up to what you expected? Did they require any kind of training from your end to understand your product?

    Synergo proved to be experts in mobile app development and better than expected. They did not require any training from my side.

    Could you highlight the best things of Synergo?

    The expertise of their team and the knowledge they have. That is why they were able to recommend and implement their own suggestions to my mobile app development.

    Is there anything you believe Synergo could improve on?

    Issue tracking would be made easier with a tracking tool, although we were able to track the issues through email.
    I shared this feedback with Synergo as an improvement when we closed the project and they replied that the development was relatively small so they did not open the tracking tool for it and they would definitely do it for future work and more complex app development.

    Is there anything else about your experience with Synergo that you would like to share?

    Nothing that I can think of.
