SteelKiwi`s team is responsive, transparent, and make sure that they are constantly available to answer questions

SteelKiwi has been our partner on a variety of projects, including Android development, DSS, HTML, and Django-Python. SteelKiwi has also consulted on a booking engine and new VPN service. They are responsive, transparent, and make sure that they are constantly available to answer questions. A point of improvement for SteelKiwi`s team would be to have a more consistent skill level among their developers. Their team is fantastic with Python-Django framework. I think it`s one of the best things SteelKiwi does because I`ve had problems with other developers in terms of skills with Python-Django. In addition, SteelKiwi`s response rate and availability is fantastic. Few times I changed the goals or schedule of a project, but it was never a problem for them even if it required them to work outside normal business hours.

Pros:

  • Their team is responsive and transparent
  • They are perfect with Python-Django framework

CONS:

  • Inconsistentcy

I am very happy with their work and where the application stands.

They developed for us minimum viable product, a custom mobile solution that helps non-profit organizations better manage their stakeholder meetings. We were very happy with the application, which will require new features as it gains revenue and a larger user base. SteelKiwi`s team performed very well from a project management standpoint, communicating regularly and remaining responsive throughout the project. The team`s English is very good, and there were really no instances of misunderstandings due to the language barrier. I`m also a developer, so the translation between the business goals and technical ideas was something largely done by myself. I would definitely hire SteelKiwi`s team again without any doubt.

SteelKiwi has professional project management in terms of progress updates and presentations.

They prototyped for us from-scratch online platform to help users compare, rate, and book local catering options. The original platform version includes professional functionalities and a compelling UX/UI design. Both end-users and backend engineers can navigate the prototype quickly and easily owing to SteelKiwi`s accomplished team.

Pros:

  • Professionalism

SteelKiwi`s work is amazing, professional and done well.

After a failed relationship with a previous vendor, SteelKiwi implemented a fluid front-end design and back-end functionalities on our website. We were very happy with the flexible working relationship with SteelKiwi. They stayed organized throughout the project, and gave the in-house team direct access to their task management system. Their versatile talent pool and excellent work set them apart. SteelKiwi has a team of workers that can do just about anything I`ve ever ask them to do: whether it be iOS, database, server, coding, front-end, etc. The company has a large enough team so that they can assign more staff to my project and make it happen, and I love that. I don`t have to go and negotiate an extra contract with another provider. SteelKiwi`s team can usually do it all, which has been fantastic.

Pros:

  • They are flexible and organized
  • Multifunctionality

CONS:

  • Timeines
  • Unperfect English

I`m happy with SteelKiwi`s performance.

The company developed for us a web database solution, then integrated it with Google`s Flight API to improve its airline ranking software. End users who tested our new platform praised it professional appearance and reliable performance. The team was steadfast in developing the best features, despite the project`s inflexible cost restrictions. The SteelKiwi`s team remained quick and efficient, and always stayed within budget. I have no point of comparison, but this company was spot-on when it came to getting tasks done. Whenever something took longer than their estimations, I wasn`t charged extra. I have seen time notes with hours that far-exceeded the hours estimated. For me, as a buyer, this was very good.

SteelKiwi`s team met all of the challenges we put to them. They were very responsive to what we need.

I hired SteelKiwi to build functionality and customization using Django/Python. Their work resulted in a great platform that functions with no downtime. The collaboration has been successful on follow up projects and remains ongoing, with SteelKiwi`s team continuing to provide ongoing support and customer service. This company is amazing to work with. They are amazing listeners and work with my company through perfecting the design process and giving their advice on the best technical solutions. Despite we are in two different countries and speak two different languages, we have never had any issues. Also, we have never had any trust issues. I appreciate that they have never overcharged us for the work. We have been fortunate to work with SteelKiwi. We contracted a lot of services and SteelKiwi gets top rankings from us.

SteelKiwi did everything they were supposed to do.

SteelKiwi began by implementing for us a new payment processing features into an existing Django-based website and their involvement now also includes design efforts. Key strengths of SteelKiwi include communication skills, exceptional knowledge of Python/Django, and a personable approach to client relationship management. I was impressed by our partnership. With teams from Ukraine and India there will always be complications, but SteelKiwi is my favourite team to work with in a remote capacity.

Pros:

  • Communication
  • Exceptional knowledge of Python/Django

Their approach to project management was excellent and reliable.

Their team designed and developed a start-up`s functional software product under a tight deadline. Company`s strong project management, excellent communication skills, and high-quality work kept the development process running smoothly. We found that the company would assign a project manager, who would translate business requirements to the developer - should language be an issue - which is also a welcome value-add. In the result, the developer assigned to us is extremely competent, is diligent and works with integrity, communicates well, and possesses more than sufficient level of English.

Pros:

  • Talanted developers

Their project management team has a good command of English, which I appreciated as an international client.

The project provided by SteelKiwi involved full-stack development using an array of technologies: Python/Django, HTML5, CSS, backbone.js/knockout.js. I was impressed by exceptional command of English, well-organized project management and a commitment to stable code. Company`s project management team has a good command of English, which I appreciated as an international client. They also had good pricing, but this is not something unique to them. I appreciate the quality of code provided by SteelKiwi`s team. I was also impressed by how smooth the process of working with company`s project manager and sales team was.

Pros:

  • Good command of English
  • Well-organized project management
  • Commitment to stable code
  • Good pricing

CONS:

  • The team is too persistent in asking qualifying questions;

SteelKiwi`s team was very responsive throughout the planning, scoping and development process.

They built a responsive, mobile-friendly website and CMS for a furniture retailer. The project was completed on an aggressive timeline. Afterward, our organic traffic nearly tripled from the previous year, and the new website more accurately and positively reflects the business. Their dedicated work eliminated bugs from the CMS and optimized it for efficiency. Also, they prioritized the customer experience and responded quickly to any concerns. Generally, I was very impressed with their performance. SteelKiwi`s team was very responsive throughout the planning, scoping and development process. The e-commerce project was completed on time and within budget. I liked the fact that the team responds very quickly to any questions or concerns I had.

Pros:

  • They are responsive about planning, scoping and development process.

The final product was delivered above our expectations

SteelKiwi developed a parental-controlled entertainment application for iOS. They built a backend server and designed the app`s UI that was great and functions completely without bugs. Features included a media catalogs, personalized screen time and content playlists. The application has proven to be successful in beta testing by offering a useful service with intuitive design. Also, parents value the controllable screen time and request a greater breadth of content. For my opinion, SteelKiwi is great for start-ups with a fluid vision. They did a lot of research for helping us decide where to take our product.

Pros:

  • Great for start-ups
  • They do a lot of research

CONS:

  • The project manager`s English wasn`t perfect that caused some miscommunications

Company`s talent pool is a huge factor but also their project management approach.

They developed for us the client`s custom logistics solution, handling all aspects from design to integration and quality assurance. Their work has produced very few bugs, and the client considers this a testament to their expertise and talented pool of developers. The team quickly resolved issues, and were instrumental in bringing valuable input to the project. Our client also estimates their project management as above average. I`ve really appreciated their ability to think outside of the box and offer us key suggestions around process improvement or bug fixes or feature designs.

Pros:

  • Ability to think outside of the box

SteelKiwi`s team adapted so well to a variety of business requirements

SteelKiwi was hired to develop for us a web-based delegate training solution for renewable energy standards and their performance led to ongoing development and design work. The key strengths of this company include a clear commitment to code quality and versatility in the face of changing business requirements. Also, the team delivered results within budget and on time. We have looked for this elsewhere in the market because developers are able to deliver within the right price, quality, or time. It is rare to find all 3 at once like we did with SteelKiwi.

Pros:

  • They adapt well to a variety of business requirements
  • They provide the right price, quality and time

The communication with SteelKiwi has been quick and easy.

The company created for us an API and redeveloped the backend framework of an existing web solution. The project team was focused on feature enrichment as the launch deadline approaches. Strong project management and a reliable quality assurance process provided the solution achieved all technical requirements. Company`s reasonable cost structure and flexible workflow are also notable strengths. We were really satisfied with what SteelKiwi`s team did for us. We didn`t get too much into how they managed their business. They do have a live video stream where you can see them working. But we didn`t really dive into how they operated, we just let them do their work.

Pros:

  • Strong project management
  • Reliable quality assurance processes
  • Reasonable cost structure
  • Flexible workflow

CONS:

  • Unclarified billing

The team understood the project and it was very clear what the objectives were with every meeting.

Steelkiwi built for us a website from scratch, providing both design and custom software development work. Also they implemented data-tracking for both users and business offering services that allows them track success. Our website has been completed on time and is being circulated to solicit feedback and potential partners. The team worked quickly, making significant progress driven by their personnel decisions. Although their work sometimes required multiple iterations, but the final deliverables were high-quality.

Pros:

  • High-quality and efficient work

They were extremely reactive in their sales process and were attentive to the challenge I had.

SteelKiwi designed and developed for us an app that shows venue popularity through the use of heat-map data that includes filtering options to increase its user-friendliness. The project team also provided testing operations. The application has a great design and a low cost per acquisition through the use of Facebook Ads. SteelKiwi`s team was flexible with change requests and delayed payments, delivering quality outputs at a reasonable price. I wish they could improve by reaching out proactively when something isn`t clear. Also, they should have been more clear with the exact features coming next, but I am happy with their services. For that price, their work was perfect because if I made this application in France or England, it would have cost two or four times as much. The team is very flexible and continued the work even when I was late with payments.

Pros:

  • Flexible with change requests
  • They provide a reasonable price

CONS:

  • They are good developers but bad businessmans

Yannig Le Bars, 2019-01-06 13:19:17

I would definitely recommend them to those who have apps that they want to develop.

SteelKiwi developed for us a Django-based web application that integrates Google Maps and they build the end-to-end system based on a prototype and incorporated the UX and UI requirements. The team listened carefully and understood the task clearly resulting in the delivery of the exact specifications desired, especially the UI and UX. Their strong Django expertise helped them to build a flawlessly functional app that garnered positive feedback from the third-party recipient. I am satisfied with their work because they understood the requirements and provided the exact UI and UX I expected. There completed work in the time frame that I had in mind and it was good.

Pros:

  • They understand task clearly and deliver the product I was expected
  • Professional UI and UX

The original project with SteelKiwi was smooth, well-produced and came out exactly how we wanted.

They built an application meant to curate and assess professional photography. Also, the team prototyped the iOS version first and remain focused on its improvement before they develop the Android counterpart. SteelKiwi`s project team outlined the complete process in detail and before obeyed it religiously. Despite time zone differences make communication more challenging, the team is always attentive and engaged. Their technical expertise can`t be underestimated. Generally, my experience working with this company has been good. They are a nice team of talented, knowledgeable, current, cutting-edge technology experts in the field of creating applications and websites.

Pros:

  • Attentive and engaged team

SteelKiwi`s team is very responsive and they deliver high-quality work.

They helped us to build collaborative educational applications for both the iOS and Android platforms. SteelKiwi primarily handled back-end coding and content. Development was moving smoothly and quickly. The company continually satisfies with their cost-effective pricing, timely deliveries, and high-quality agile development process. The price and the quality that SteelKiwi`s team delivers, and their agility - those things would be difficult to find, especially regarding the pricing. I could have found somebody in Denmark, and I could get the same agility and the same quality, but the pricing would way ahead of what SteelKiwi charges.

Pros:

  • Cost-effective pricing
  • Timely deliveries
  • High-quality agile development process

I have very strict standards for code quality, and SteelKiwi met those standards quite handily.

They provided augmentary development support. The original project involved developing a custom solution that semi-automatically distributed jobs to websites, newspapers, and social networks. SteelKiwi`s team successfully built a dynamic reporting engine that could automatically generate and store reports. They finished the work much quicker than anticipated and practiced flexible communication and project management with careful handling of sensitive source code instilled long-term trust. SteelKiwi is extremely flexible in terms of methods of communication. For me, flexibility is the biggest bonus I was able to come across. We often chat with SteelKiwi using Skype, for example. Their team is always accessible and flexible with the means by which they send us their work.

Pros:

  • Flexibility

The team is coming up with good solutions for us to improve processes.

They provided the MVP of a blockchain-powered collaboration platform using React.js and Solidarity and they helped to create wireframes, plan and refine features, and launch the product. SteelKiwi has launched the product`s landing page successfully. They delivered tasks on time, devised clever solutions to complex issues, and made contact throughout the project to keep everyone updated. Also, they have pared down their communication strategy to streamline the process.

Pros:

  • They provide good solutions to improve process;

We appreciate SteelKiwi`s responsiveness.

The company prototyped for is a B2C marketplace for iOS devices. SteelKiwi`s project team used existing wireframes to build the functional version and their performance could result in further involvement. While versatility proved invaluable, SteelKiwi`s team was unable to deliver a feasible solution by the specified deadline. I really appreciated Steelkiwi`s responsiveness. The feedback and requests we shared with them were replied quickly. Whenever we needed to have an additional call, the team was proactive in connecting with us.

Pros:

  • Responsiveness

  • Unable to deliver a feasible solution by the specified deadline

SteelKiwi`s team is very detail-oriented and they push your limits.

The company first validated design functions and then prototyped the first iOS version of a travel application. The main features include account creation using social media, geo-pinning, and image sharing. Assigned resources provided expert guidance resulting in meaningful product improvement previously unconsidered. SteelKiwi`s project team is driven and detail-oriented but has difficulty sharing relevant updates in terms comprehensible to laypeople. They are really pushy but in a good way and they are trying to make you think more than you have time to do.

Pros:

  • Detail-opiented team
  • They push your limits of thinking

CONS:

  • Invoicing

I was sure that my project in good hands

Using provided design ideas, SteelKiwi developed for us the UI elements, animations, and screens for a mood-tracking iOS mobile application that aims to improve user`s mental health. The project was delivered on time. The app performed well on the App Store, receiving 100 reviews and a 4.5 rating. The team was transparent and communicative, managing an effective workflow and quickly addressing any questions. The company delivered everything that promised at the beginning of the project. SteelKiwi`s team gained my trust, and I`m looking forward to working with them again in the future.

The team`s communication was very impressive, and they worked very good as a team.

SteelKiwi designed and built for our company a custom e-commerce website using Django, Python, and Amazon Web Services, also they set up Google Analytics. The website is clean, well-designed and meets all our requirements. Project management and communication were provided using Slack, Jira, Confluence, and Skype, and customer service was exceptional. During the project, I had some personal issues due to Hurricane Irma, and the team was very understanding and was willing to work according to my schedule. I was a bit nervous about the number of bugs that came up during the testing operation, but the team fixed them efficiently at no extra charge. They could also be more communicative around pricing, because they are charging more than their initial quote.

Pros:

  • Impressive communication

They provided a high level of communication.

The company provided additional development resources. The team designed and developed several projects, including a custom real estate management platform. The company timed out on each API call and met the majority of performance expectations. The team was very accommodating throughout the project management process, and regularly extended their service hours to ensure proper communication despite the time difference. Also they provided a high level of communication: weekly calls, and daily updates - using our platforms, systems, and trackers. SteelKiwi was fully integrated with our systems. Obviously, that is the goal for any team, but we achieved it with them!

Pros:

  • High level communication
