STX Next stands out through the passion shown for the business
I have worked with many vendors in my career for similar work. STX Next stands out through the passion showed for the project. This starts at the top, with their CEO. They have paid a lot of attention to customer details. Also, I have appreciated their openness and honesty during our retrospectives. They have continually looked at ways in which we could improve the working relationship and the internal team. I have almost fifteen years of experience working in the digital world, and our retrospectives with STX Next have been the most honest I have participated in.

We appreciated how passionate and engaged STX Next` team was.
The system they provided performs well and quickly, features a stable architecture, and has an appealing UI and workflow. They exceeded expectations in quality and timeliness. Their team was genuinely invested in the success of the project and offered guidance on the product`s response to market constraints. They delivered an excellent product, with good quality and timeliness. I was looking for a partner that would care about the work, which proved to be outstanding from STX Next's side.
It is rare to find a shop with reliable access to this kind of value
They communicated successfully using Bugzilla. STX Next delivers solutions within the specified budget and on-time, which can be challenging for other suppliers. Customers can expect reliable service and attention to detail even on larger, complicated projects. The most important part about them is that they deliver in terms of time, quality, functionality, and cost.
- Reliable service
- Attention to detail
- Delivering in time
- Good quality, functionality and cost
Rather than looking for upfront specs, STX Next made an effort to understand the product
The modernized product delivered by this company surpassed expectations and already drove significant sales increases. Direct communication with their assigned engineers yielded very productive results, but this might not be possible for less technically experienced clients. STX Next`s quality of engineering is much higher than I expected. I was looking for a standard, shop-level skills, but their coders are very good. They are the team I would happily hire internally. STX Next`s approach to Agile is quite surprising. STX Next wants to be in it for the long-term, which is a bit different to the normal fire-and-forget agency model.
- Quality of engineering
- Using Agile approach
- They don`t offer out-of-hours support as a service
Not only are they familiar with general tech stacks, but they are also willing to learn new platforms to help us grow
The platform and business have grown substantially over the course of the engagement thanks to STX Next. Dependable and supportive, they are quick to address technical challenges and have even worked off hours to keep the platform live. Customers can expect proactive communication with STX Next. We use Cubic to generate the experiences on our website, which neither of STX Next`s developers had worked with before. But STX Next was able to pick it up to support us.
- Dependable and supportive team
- Proactive communication
I massively value STX Next`s opinion and they really listen to us so they can understand our business
STX Next bestows a level of transparency that significantly boosts overall confidence. A goal-oriented and relentless quality assurance process ensures consistent and error-free delivery. Product ownership, communication, and effective use of both Agile and Scrum methodologies were also notable qualities. With STX Next we quickly developed a real sense of partnership instead of a vendor-type relationship. I am very open about our business goals and transparent about how I want this to perform. We give them all that information and work together to try and reach the same target, which has been really beneficial. They have really enjoyed the process of being a part of our team.
- Goal-orientated team
- Using Agile and Scrum methodologies
We changed our expectations quite a bit, and STX Next expertly accommodated our requests
Outside parties have praised their work on the platform`s backend system. Despite some management and scheduling challenges, STX Next`s team was dynamic and flexible. Their team is responsive to scope changes, adjusting their workflow to accommodate any request. I am impressed by how quickly they were able to allocate resources to our project. When we work on specific features, STX Next promptly provides specialists to help us out for a few hours.
- Dynamic and flexible team
STX Next never forced us to buy a service until we considered it to be necessary.
Their organizational skills were a key strength from the very beginning. A complimentary project manager was assigned to prevent unexpected problems, which came as a pleasant surprise. STX Next is a very organized group. My team was not used to working with outsourced resources, but STX Next made the experience very pleasant. I was very impressed by STX Next and have really enjoyed the collaboration.

STX Next`s team contributed a significant amount to critical projects, excellent work
They provided two initial developers who proved highly effective and dedicated. We managed to scale the team to four developers plus one QA. Overall, STX Next`s responsiveness, output quality, and augmentation to internal staff were very good. The quality and experience of some of their developers were invaluable. I was impressed how much STX Next can act as a force multiplier to both the STX and the in-house development teams.
- They were very good in terms of responsiveness
- Effective and dedicated team
They are certainly a Python powerhouse
They successfully helped us get the whole system to the testing stage, contributing especially valuable development on the backend. STX Next excelled in producing high-quality work with minimal bugs given their strong focus on QA. Frequent communications with STX Next`s product owner resulted in minimal issues. Their approach has been very different from other companies. Previously, we worked with STX Next on a time and materials basis with requirements being set up front. We wanted a fully dedicated team, and STX Next assigned one to us. I have not experienced any problems with this approach as we communicate regularly, and STX Next has a service delivery manager who has been in contact with us in case of any issues.
- Frequent communications
- Dedicated team
- STX Next does not differentiate between junior and senior developer costs
STX Next is quite experienced and quite strong in the Agile process.
Their project team demonstrated efficiency by streamlining processes and supplying frequent performance metrics. Resources always communicated effectively, and their deliverables were almost completely bug-free. They are generally accommodating because we are the client, they are good at saying, "Wow, this is not a very good way to work." STX Next offers alternatives so that the work runs smoothly. Reducing disruptions means that we get better value. We have a strong culture of Agile processes, and we have learned as a business ourselves from watching what they have implemented.
- Efficiency by streamlining processes and supplying frequent performance metrics

STX Next is willing to learn and understand our business instead of just coding to our specs.
Key highlights include a clear commitment to quality assurance, well-organized project management, and the ability to brainstorm proactively with their customers. It was recommended that they improve their use of tools like Jira. Their team is passionate and has a great work ethic. They engage with us as a partner, wanting to understand, improve the code, and deliver better products. There is a lot of change in our industry in terms of the clients which we are able to sign. Even though this can be disruptive, they have been flexible in changing directions with us. STX Next has an Agile culture, plus they are stable, tech-savvy, and able to self-organize. They work well as a team.
- Well-organized project management
- Passionate team
- Great work ethic
- Providing Agile culture
STX Next has very energetic and sociable teams, and we get along well.
Collaboration with them throughout several challenging engagements ensured both timely conclusions and favorable outcomes. Unexpected changes are rarely an issue and excessive bureaucracy never undermines critical progress. After working extensively with STX Next, we honestly see them as colleagues rather than suppliers. That is a unique thing, and it has to do with the culture of STX - it is something they should be proud of. They don`t have a lot of unnecessary processes or bureaucracy. In contrast, other third-party development agencies tend to overload processes. STX Next doesn`t and we have found working with them to be quick and easy - they just get it done.
- Corporate culture
- Quick and easy to work with
STX Next owned projects showed responsibility over the work, and delivered the best possible results
They have increased system capacity from 300 to 5,000 users, which has tripled revenue. STX Next`s responsive communication and sophisticated technical skills allow them to keep progress stable. STX Next`s team is clearly invested in the company's growth and success. We had worked with a local company before, but their quality of service and responsiveness were nowhere near what we have gotten from STX Next. It has been a completely different experience. STX Next behaves as a part of our company. They own projects, show responsibility over the work, and deliver the best possible results. STX Next stands out by acting as an internal IT department.
- Responsive communication
- Sophisticated technical skills
- The cost could be lower
They were happy to personalize the project according to our needs and plans
They are friendly and welcoming, adapting their approach based on the proposed goals. STX Next shows genuine interest in their work, collaborating to make the best product possible. The website has been well-received, and issues are quickly addressed. They are highly professional and talented. STX Next`s process for reviewing code and team management was much better than any other firm we have worked with. We learned a lot from them and we would never done a project like this, so they taught us useful techniques and methodologies. We could tell that they cared about our project and wanted to do their best-it was not like working with a big, faceless corporation. They were not afraid to make suggestions to improve the product, so it really felt like we were a team. We got along well and looked forward to our daily meetings with them.
- Professional and talented team
They have really stuck to the rulebook of scrum development, which has paid off well very.
Internal usage of the tool STX Next provided has grown tremendously and replaced several legacy systems, increasing efficiency by eliminating the need to manage multiple platforms at once. They are easy to collaborate with despite their physical distance and shares UX expertise to constantly improve the product. I have not worked on a project of this type in the past, so I could not compare them to competitors. By the time they are picking up a task that had been in the planning stage, we can already assign tickets to them and have a sprint. At that point, there will be few questions about the work. STX Next will have spent enough time beforehand making sure that the task is well specified and reasonably estimated. There are few surprises on either side, given that we follow every rule. This has been important to success, especially in overcoming our distance barriers.
They have been very helpful in formalizing our processes
STX Next`s team works smoothly and professionally, with a clean work process and efficient project management systems. STX Next communicates effectively, despite a large geographical and time difference, and have demonstrated their thorough technical knowledge.

STX Next`s team was just as invested on the product side as they were with the tech side, and I liked how they were able to look at the platform from a user`s perspective. This made it easy to form a good working relationship. To build on that, I would like to stress just how personable they were. When dealing with a larger agency, it can be difficult to get a high level of in-person service. However, since I occupy more of an overarching role, I interacted directly with people from several departments, including STX Next`s management. From their CTO to the developers, every individual was approachable and accessible. We always felt that we could discuss anything with STX Next.
- Efficient project management
- Technical knowledge
They have maintained the same standards we have on our own team
STX Next team`s developers integrated fully into an existing process, matching it's quality and workflow standards. They offer varied consultation services, ensuring skillful assistance for unique challenges. Expect to smooth incorporate team members from STX Next reliable partner.

It is like paying for three developers while also having access to skilled consultants who can help whenever needed.

- Skilled consultants

They successfully completed the initial initiative testing. Their team provides high-quality code, effective project management, and is timely on deliverables. STX Next is responsive and communicate regularly, clearly, and effectively with daily discussions and weekly reports. Apart from their quality of work and timeliness, it was important for me to have clear communication. They met this expectation very well. We had daily discussions. If a feature was a bit more complicated, it would be discussed even a few times per day. I was very pleased with this aspect, especially given that STX Next was an offshore company, so we couldn't meet face to face.

We have seen an infinite-percent improvement, considering that we did not have anything in place before. We were impressed with how quickly they were able to familiarize themselves with the project and learn how to move around in it. It is quite a messy, old bit of code. We were also happy with their way of doing code reviews, and with their Python code in general. It is clearly being written by people with a level of expertise in that language. STX Next`s work has also helped us focus on important projects.
- Clearly and effective communications
We were getting more worth for our money due to STX Next`s contribution
The plug-in system is extensible in terms of functionalities, making for highly useful and profitable tools.

The efficient, professional STX Next`s team features specialists for each stage of the project to deliver end-to-end solutions. Unlike other firms I have worked with, STX Next doesn`t get hung up on theoretical concepts or on building beautiful code at the expensive of actual accomplishments. I want to see how they cope with some of the new problems we have given them before I will have a concrete answer, though.
- Efficient and professional team
STX Next was not some nameless people developing some software, but rather an extension of the team.
A 5-6-week turnaround proved to be of minimal concern, as the solution delivered performs well, it is reliable and attracting users. Despite working remotely, they integrated smoothly with the internal development team and communicated more effectively than expected. The whole STX Next`s team was interested in getting the product out. STX Next`s team was very self-contained. STX Next did most of the things themselves and contacted me if there was a need or they were blocked. I was also pleasantly surprised how proficient STX Next was in English and how easy it was to communicate.
- Effective communication
I had a pleasant experience overall working with STX Next
Despite poor communication led to a shortened engagement, the engineer provided quality work during ramp time. Their management team, however, was thoroughly engaged and mindful of the project`s success, creating an amicable working relationship. STX Next as a whole is easy to work with. Their team responsive to our messages, and they checked in with us constantly.

STX Next really maintains the relationship and work professionally
Thorough in STX Next`s approach to maintaining high-quality standards, they have proven better than previous developers. Fidelity to agile methods has ensured effective communication and project management. The way of working, everybody tends to be agile, have scrum masters, and those kinds of things. But STX Next is the first company I have worked with to actually enforce the process. They are working via the proper agile methodology. STX Next insisted that we have a scrum master on the project. We have someone who checks in every week on the relationship and wants to know if there are any problems STX Next needs to solve.
- Approach to maintaining high-quality standards
- Effective communication and project management
STX Next helps us develop the right software in a more efficient way.
Throughout the engagement, they coded several custom features from scratch, demonstrating excellent technical skills. STX Next`s problem-solving abilities and eagerness to incorporate feedback continues to drive project success. In my experience with outsourcing, you generally give to vendor company a set of requirements, and they deliver the requirements exactly as you specified. If it is not right, it was your fault because you did not specify your needs clearly. But STX Next is more collaborative, as they talk about the problem and suggest ways that could solve it more efficiently. STX Next looks at alternatives, particularly when bringing in the product owner. He has been trying to introduce more processes for developing this solution, whether it is a customer issue or something we want to do strategically.

They were also deeply engaged with our product and provided excellent custom software development services.

STX Next also often suggested ways to improve the user experience and make the outcome more successful.
- Experienced developers

Not only are they transparent and flexible, but they have been immensely helpful when we needed to scale up.
Despite the growing scope, they helped develop and launch the project while remaining within budget.

When the time came to scale down, it was no problem, either.

They are on the ball. I would use their service again, absolutely

I was amazed at STX Next`s ability to take ownership over the product roadmap
One key highlight was STX Next`s ability to take complete ownership over their work, paying close attention to each detail and always taking into account the end-user and the overall business goal. I was initially skeptical about them when our COO proposed them because I have had some bad experiences with previous suppliers. This is the 6th technology company I have started in my career, so I have a good benchmark for outsourcing partners. They are the best company I have worked with, by far. They are an exceptional company within its industry, based on the quality of delivery and project management. The most important detail is that they are a real partner for our company. The kind of support they provide and willingness to share risks have been outstanding.
- Paying close attention to detail
- Project management
They are immersed in the entire business process and the development
They never sacrifice quality, and their contributions are always market-ready. STX Next challenges assumptions to ensure the highest quality product is being delivered, in the most efficient way. I have experienced working with a lot of outsourced companies. In terms of delivery, STX Next has never fallen from or dropped the ball with any companies I have ever worked for, even compared to internal teams, and not only outsourced teams. Whenever I recommend them to others, my biggest selling point for these guys is that they are developing a product. STX Next is not coding minions that get basic instructions, follow them, and don`t care about what they are doing. STX Next is always trying to understand what they are doing, what the product is, what the end goal is, and what the future plans are. They are immersed in the entire business process and the development, which is what distinguishes them from any other company I have ever worked with.
