We addressed *instinctools for developing the whole software regarding steering our camera systems. We needed to connect our research partners' software and manual steering with the camera systems and save and load the data. We're pleased with *instinctools' work, especially with their bespoke business analysts. They serve as the spokespeople between technology and business, representing both sides effectively. The team of around ten people is dependable regarding time and finances and consistently stays within the designated budget. They deliver before the deadline, which is fantastic. I'm most impressed by *instinctools' transparency, open communication, and authenticity. We can quickly get on a call whenever there are issues without any hidden agendas.

Since 2016, Instinctools has been our reliable technology partner. We have had the pleasure of working with their account executive, project coordinator, lead developer, and up to 10 developers from their team on various projects.
They have delivered high-quality work for us in the past, including a mobile app, legacy modernization, and support. Our latest project with instinctools’ dedicated team involved web application development, which is now live and of excellent quality. The team did an impressive job implementing the look and feel of the design, which they partially created, and the CSS. The code is well-structured and adheres to industry standards, making it easy for external parties to understand. They utilized the AngularJS framework effectively by dividing it into layers, and promptly addressed any crashes or bugs.
We followed an agile-like approach, and the team knew how to balance communication without being overbearing. They ensured that resources were available as promised and that deliverables were completed on time and within budget. Communication was mainly through Teams.
One of their key strengths is their ability to create a skilled and collaborative team that complements each other well. They have the necessary capabilities to work with the technology stack we require for our legacy software.

We hired *instinctools for the development of a web browser application that personalizes the video experience, allowing for efficient content discovery and navigation within the video.
Throughout the project, we worked with a team of around 20 experts, including frontend and backend developers, middleware pipeline developers, data architects, UX designers, and more.
The team has delivered an MVP of the web platform within a predefined deadline, and we were thrilled with the work *instinctools has done. Their technical talent is impressive, spanning from user stories and UX to backend development and more.
They are continuously improving their service and delivery capabilities, which we have observed during our 4-year relationship. We do not have any specific deficiencies to attribute to them, as they have always been professional and competent in their work.
Having technical counterparts on our side has been beneficial, and we recommend pairing internal and external project leads for maximum productivity. We view *instinctools as an extension of our team, expanding our scope of capability, and this approach has worked well for us.

We entrusted the implementation of our product MVP concept to the *instinctools team. They developed and deployed the web application while we provided product vision and ownership.
The project was completed within a very strict deadline, exceeding our expectations. Although we exceeded our initial budget, it was primarily due to new features added mid-project, based on user feedback. We are continually gathering significant user feedback, which will serve as the basis for our 2.0 iteration.
Instinctools’ project management was impressive. They followed a strict agile/scrum process that was highly disciplined and transparent, contributing to meeting the deadline.
The engineering and design team we worked with was highly professional, capable, and excellent to communicate with. They demonstrated flexibility, proactivity, and willingness to do whatever it took to accomplish the project's goals.

Instinctools provided an engineering team located in the EU to increase our development capabilities. The vendor's team easily joined our process and integrated with our in-house team to help with projects in our pipeline, starting with localizing our platform. We measured their success based on the number of pull requests created, projects delivered on time, and issues handled. Overall, we are very pleased with their seniority and experience and highly recommend them to others.
We appreciated how quickly they were able to provide us with the right resources to meet our needs. We were able to fully leverage their expertise in legacy software, web, and mobile development to successfully complete our projects. Overall, our experience with them was positive, and we would definitely recommend them to others who are looking for reliable and experienced engineers to augment their teams.

We were looking to bring on some cost-effective, outside resources to assist with software project implementation. We wanted to be able to scale the development team up and down quickly while ensuring that the contractors had the necessary skills. The most important factor in choosing to work with *instinctools is the relationship we have with the CEO. He is a person of high integrity with exceptional business and technical skills. All of the projects, in which *instinctools developers augmented our staff were completed on time and on budget with exceptional quality. *instinctools surpassed our expectations and were in all aspects far superior to the offshore development companies we've worked with in the past. Their customer service is phenomenal. *instinctools consistently went above and beyond to ensure the project's success, often going outside of the agreed scope. It would have been nice to have more opportunities to meet with them in person.

*instinctools has handled senior-developer-level Java programming for our platform. We have implemented an event-scheduling feature that allows users to set up schedules, similar to the functionality of Upwork, integrating with customer calendars.
We've been very happy with the resources we've gotten from *instinctools. They have been very knowledgeable and communicative. They're also very efficient with their time. They rarely miss deadlines and the features they develop come with very few issues.
Our product is fairly mature and complicated, requiring capable senior developers. It may sound simple but, in practice, it's hard to find developers with enough capability to contribute to a high-end product like ours.
*instinctools is a professional and well-organized group, from representatives to project managers, giving us the overall confidence that they'll be responsive to our needs.

The first impression that a company makes is very important to me. *instinctools took our code and showed up with a first result without asking too many questions. This assured me that they knew their stuff. It is rare to find companies as proactive as they are, but they take the time to really understand the problem before they begin trying to solve it.
*instinctools has been able to deliver on time and within budget for about 75% of the time, which is actually very good, especially for development projects.
We have managed to obtain quality expertise at a good price. *instinctools is able to deliver good quality without micromanagement.

We were trying to reduce the friction points that our larger clients experienced while integrating our software into their mobile apps. Instinctools reached out to me on LinkedIn when our procurement was searching for local vendors.
The project's scope was well-defined, with us providing the systems requirements documentation. The Instinctools team was responsible for estimation and technical implementation that resulted in the desired business outcomes.
We entirely relied on their expertise and ability to figure out the best way to implement the SDK functionality. We had frequent touchpoints and were collaborating efficiently to clear all the roadblocks that emerged.
I was pleasantly surprised that there was no need for hand-holding and project management from our side. This, paired with their understanding of Android development, provides a competitive advantage, especially compared with other vendors that require very detailed specifications.
We were also very impressed by their flexibility around the contract wording. Our legal team was adamant about specific changes, and at some point, during the contract negotiations, I thought it was the end of the line. So when Instinctools accommodated our requirements, I was happy, relieved, and impressed.
The main result is that neither our customers nor we managed to find any issues whatsoever. Not for the lack of trying ;) This outcome lays the foundation for our future work together.

Most of our projects revolve around the automation business, controlling core generator units and other machinery. We have worked with *instinctools on developing different stages of our software.
*instinctools was involved in the development of our app, improving it massively by providing QA as well as UI/UX designs. *instinctools also developed a smart bus driver, which is a special protocol for communicating with the code-generation unit of the machines.
*instinctools was available almost all the time when we needed it. They spent quality time and provided quality work for us, which we've appreciated. If we had any questions regarding the organization, *instinctools addressed it. We initially used GitHub for the collaboration but moved to the Atlassian suite.
They are organized. We did not experience issues with communication, and they were always responsive to requests and questions. We were not expecting things to go as smoothly as they have.

*instinctools dedicated team was involved in the software development of our new SaaS. We were very satisfied with their services, and our clients loved the new system. For instance, a few years ago, our German client bought a system that used custom software, which was difficult to integrate with our client’s backend and warehouses. *instinctools got this job done. They managed to move around 10 shops and worked for the entire brand — it’s now one of the top-performing brands with shops in Germany and Europe.
What we always liked about them was they were very invested in the project. They had many ideas that customers approved and implemented. Instinctools business analysts looked for market trends and came up with ideas on improving the shops and adding new features and functionalities.
All future *instinctools customers give them the freedom to innovate because they have the resources to build something good.

We addressed *instinctools for our dev team augmentation. The project was the launch of a new website based on React technology. We had strict deadlines and were looking for experts that could start asap.
As a result, the project we developed together with *instinctools was launched on time and within budget. The cooperation was very helpful and we extended our dev team with senior developers.
Speaking about their project management style, they are very well organized and clearly summarize the tasks and time used. Their communication was very direct, helpful, and pleasant.
The most impressive about the *instinctools team was how everything was organized and communicated, especially the affordable costs, skills and tech stack, reliability, and availability.

My name is Matti Vesterinen, I work for Helvar which is a family owned company, almost one hundred years old, focused nowadays on lightening and the lightening controls. I’m responsible for a wireless solution offering and in this case also a room offering where we have a wireless component in place.

How did you learn about *instinctools?

instinctools contacted us some time ago or like a year ago or so.. And at that time, we were actually looking for a partner who could help us on giving some extra hands on developing some of our solutions. And so we then did some investigations and interviewed instinctools and a couple of other providers and ended up in choosing instinctools for the job.

Are you satisfied with *instinctools as a technical partner?

Yes, we are satisfied with *instinctools as a technical partner. So, it’s rather professional how you operate: we get the reports in time, we know when and how the teams are working we kind of basically know what to expect in which sprint as an example.  So, yes. That’s been professionally. It seems yes

What challenges has *instinctools team faced at your project and how were they resolved?

Back in some challenges regarding the communication between hardware device and the actual software running on a tablet application. So those have been in the mainly then being able to kind of fix by the developers coming together, having a code camp where they sit together: the ones doing the hardware part, the ones doing more the tech on software layer on the tablet application and together sitting and fixing thing. So that has helped a lot done on these bigger challenges. On the day to day basis we’ve been able to communicate through different modern tools and that speed also helpfully in getting things resolved.

How can you describe the quality of services provided by *instinctools?

The quality has been good, so it has been kind of on the expected level I would say. So: things come on time, we have a good visibility on the things that *instinctools developers are doing and performing for us, the communication is good – we use Slack for the communication and that works out fine and also all the reports and stuff they come on time and they are right. I’d say quality is lead there.

Are you going to continue cooperation with *instinctools?

Our plan is to continue the cooperation. So in the areas where we see that we need some more developers or hands to help us out. So we want to be flexible in having the resources where they are needed. So we have developers of our own focusing on certain things, but wherever we see that we need some extra resources we found instinctools to be a good partner in the helping us out in those areas and they are so flexible in moving people from different projects or tasks to another step. So yes, the plan currently is to continue working with instinctools.

We wanted Front End created for our system including mobile application for both platforms for Android and IOS and also web portals for patients, clinicians, researchers so that has just been done. So, we're quite pleased.

What issues *instinctools faced while working on your project? How were the issues resolved?

The main issues were coming from the domain that we were working in. Healthcare has its own specifics. One of them was the Back End. We're using a specialized Healthcare oriented Back End called FHIR. *instinctools team had to basically learn very fast those protocols and so their frontend would be connected to that. Also, oneof the issues came from just requirements for timeline. We absolutely had to have something ready for demoing at a certain date, where we had a major event and that created a big urgency in the project. And*instinctools responded quite well by pretty much doubling development team from five to ten people so that allowed us to be on time. I understand that it was an additional work load on the Technical Lead and the Project Manager but so they kept it all together and the challenge was very well handled.

How can you describe the quality of service provided by *instinctools?

You know when the service is good, it just goes smoothly. You just don't notice any bumps. I think that pretty much was the case with *instinctools. And for example, when a Project Manager was changed on a project, I did not notice any sort of significant disruption or something. So that's what has been very good. I liked that they were active in learning new things, in suggesting better solutions and options, like all we cando it like this or we can do it like that. So that for me is very important. At the same time they really stayed within the sort of remits of technical partner. So that collaboration has been very successful.

Are you going to continue your cooperation with *instinctools?

Yeah absolutely, we already have a couple of more projects in the pipeline. So, the first project has been very successful, very good value for money, so here wehave request for more. And the contractsare being signed and I look forward tocontinuing.

Please introduce yourself / your company & project

I am Richard Lohwasser. I am the founder and CEO of Lition. I found it in the beginning of 2018. Lition is a company that does blockchains. We are developing actually co-innovation with SAP, the world's largest maker of business software, - a Blockchain for business use. And next to this Blockchain for business use we have one use case so what application were we use a Blockchain and that's a peer-to-peer energy trading. Actually, we're the world's first company that does peer-to-peer energy trading on the Blockchain in the mass market. And that's also how we got together with*instinctools. We have a couple of activities: we have our website, our trading platform, we have a part of the Blockchain integration, and for this we've been working together with *instinctools since the beginning of this year.

Are you satisfied with *instinctools as a technical partner?

Yes, so people at *instinctools are quite tech hats which I like, I meaning my heart I'm a developer myself. They use a very advanced toolset. In my old companies inthe large corporations we switched from waterfall development methods into agile development, and that was a standard of the *instinctools which makes it very easy. We also had a few discussions which architecture to use, and we'reusing a React-based architecture and JavaScript as a programming language, and there you notice that they have used very advanced libraries, advanced techniques, advanced coding paradigms and so the advantage is thatwe get reusable code, well testable code, well maintained code, which is quite important if you want to have a robust tool and robust solution.

What challenges has *instinctools team faced at your project and how were they resolved?

I think we had two challenges inthe project. The first one is I think communication. We had several parties involved in the project. It wasn't just us and *instinctools, but we had for example a back-end development team, we had a Blockchain development team, we had an energy billing system supplier team, and here we notice that the interaction and the collaboration between the teams and us sometimes was a bit tricky and that led to a couple of miscommunications of delays, to buggy code, to misunderstandings, which of course demotivates the team and also demotivates me as a company founder, because of course we need results. And now we were softer I would say by two ways, one of them is to having the *instinctools project management more active, which worked out very well andalso, we stepped in closer. So, we stepped in into many of the discussions, also some of the technical discussions, when it comes to the application programming interfaces between some of these topics, and I think that led to a very good solution. We also defined some rules how do we deal with certain parts of changes, what time schedule we have and I think that helped to give more structure. Especially as we have like in total 12 developers in this whole Lition space and that of course requires a lot of communication. The second topic is the English language. It's sometimes a bit challenging, the consistency of the knowledge of the English language is not always the same for every team member, but here again we put the project management both from a co-ordination part also from a lead development part more in the driver seat and that helped a lot.

How can you describe the quality of services provided by *instinctools?

I think what definitely a plus is the technical knowledge I mean really advanced when it comes to the libraries as I mentioned earlier. The quality of the code is just good that's very important if you want to have a maintainable system. And what'salso very good is the quality of the leadership, the programming lead and the coordination lead, and that's very helpful and I'd say it's very crucial improving on communication and the area to improve would be a business process, but that's a very normal step I mean that's nothing you can expect from a software development company from the beginning I mean so the issues about that.

Are you going to continue cooperation with *instinctools?

Yes, I mean you know I'm a manager I've been managing from all most of my life so I'm a very rational guy and I look at input versus output that's good, co-operations also fun which I think is from a humanside also very important, so yes, yes.
