Testimonials

Rando Rand,
Founder at WSA

It has been a pleasure to cooperate with HQSoftware during last year and a half on our Smart Home project. They have been very flexible with our timesheet and what we especially like is their willingness to not only follow our guidelines but also to recommend better/existing solutions. HQSoftware’s responsiveness and accessibility were noteworthy. Their exceptional communication complemented their professional and supportive management style. Expect a skilled team that is attentive to detail.

 

Our supportive project manager provided excellent communication. We frequently talked through Skype, and they answered quickly. They delivered comprehensive work, especially in their quotation.

 

There’s been transparent communication throughout our relationship. HQSoftware’s responsive team was dedicated to understanding our business needs and providing detailed information.

Stefan Agustsson,
CEO at RealityBLU

We are an AR platform company. We started working with HQSoftware about 2 years ago to create an MVP for client demonstrations and market testing. Then we moved on to create a full production system using the talent at HQSoftware. We’ve been working with the team and it has grown from just a couple of people to 12 full-time people. We’ve had great project management and communication with the team members.

 

We come and visit the company at least 2-3 times a year to get to know everybody in person. I find it to be very beneficial as we move forward and are getting to know those people both inside and outside of work.

 

It’s been a very good resource for us so far and a very good experience. We’ve been very happy with the performance of the team members. And we will continue to see the team grow as we grow as a company as well.

Dana Kinghorn,
Director of Operations at Evolv Pty Ltd.

HQSoftware is a part of our business. I haven't worked with a project manager as good as the one from the Company. I feel that they are personally invested in the project, which is great. We don't want people who will simply write the code and hand it over. The work is very complicated, but HQSoftware's understands what we want and how we want it. We have developed a relationship by which HQSoftware knows what to do without even asking.

 

HQSoftware was referred to us by our Australian technology partner who had used them in previous development projects. We started working with HQSoftware about three years ago and the project is ongoing. We have taken the platform to market and have continual iterations for its improvement.

 

Our tool was initially developed by another firm. HQSoftware provided coding services, taking our business specifications and redesigning the platform on HTML5. The development was brought to a much higher level of quality than previously. HQSoftware also has built and continue to build new modules for the platform from scratch. The team has worked out a technical strategy, creating a development plan for making the software white label ready. This included creating the server infrastructure that allowed us to house the software.

The project has been completely successful and I couldn't be happier. The quality of the developers and the consistency of our core team has been above and beyond what was required. HQSoftware's project manager and 2 of our developers have been working with us since the project was started. The staff turnover is very low, which I personally find reassuring. Since the work is very complicated, I don't want to have to pay for training new people.

Tomas Westerholm,
Founder at Sessio Software

As a young startup we chose a strategy of moving on with MVP’s to test the new ideas in a broad market. To be able to quickly find good enough talent, teams and organizations to execute our tests we went for small companies rather than individual freelancers or workers. In the beginning we had quickly developed some “just enough to show” prototypes to communicate the app idea live-enough...

 

That worked quite well but also turned out to be a show stopper for any further progress since apps eventually did not really serve the intended real-life use scenarios in full.

 

To overcome that we went for a bit further developed ideas and there become the challenge of finding truly agile and well matching partners to do the sometimes stressing job of putting together something under strict constraints of time, quality and budget.

 

HQSoftware proved to be a suitable partner for that business. We had several successful development rounds and sprints with HQ and they always brought a positive touch to the development by being in time if not even a bit ahead both in schedule and progress stage.

 

We are happy to recommend HQ for anyone who is in similar situation as we were. We are also looking forward to pass even harder challenges to HQSoftware in future.

We are developing animations, virtual and augmented reality solutions. We have been working with HQSoftware for three years now and I've been visiting their development facilities to meet the team. I have been happy to work with them and the prototype has been very successful. So I can really highly recommend to work with HQSoftware.

Chris Harrison,
Managing Director at Onetee Inc.

HQSoftware developed a PHP web-based app that allows users to book tee times at golf courses. Users have booked over 13,500 reservations year to date, resulting in over $ 1 M in revenue. HQSoftware's understanding of the necessary technology and their quick and efficient communication made this project successful.

 

The project manager, Angelina, really had a great understanding of the technology side. Her team responded to our requests quickly and efficiently. She was always getting back to me. We’re on an East Coast time zone here; she’s 6, 7 hours ahead. She’d be available till mid-afternoon our time, which was almost midnight her time. She was always able to wrap our conversations up and put them into a timeline. She organized and kept everything on task.

 

I liked how they were able to work with me about our payment schedule. HQSoftware were flexible and let me dictate the terms depending on what would make sense. We could do it bi-weekly. If I wanted to wrap it up after 40 hours, 80 hours’ worth of work, we could make payments then. I think that came down from the owner who made it possible for us to work with him.

Paul Rowsthorn,
Director at GET AFTER IT PTY LTD.

Our company subcontracted HQSoftware to create a mobile app that spices up relationships by gamifying couple’s household routines. Our initial designs were quite basic; however, the team were able to translate our concept into an engaging, intuitive and secure OS application with an estimated user base of 100,000. HQSoftware delivered the initial finished product within the two months we originally planned with the results exceeding our expectations.


We selected to partner with HQSoftware following an extensive selection process including vendors from around the world. Their depth of knowledge and experience with mobile platforms when combined with the customer service made it an easy decision for us. When we initially started this project our knowledge of mobile applications was very basic, but right throughout the process everyone from HQSoftware has not only delivered results but more importantly explained how and why things were happening. The development team, project managers and directors at the company have excellent customer and communication skills and are great fun to work with. It feels like a partnership.

My team could reach out to them anytime and receive feedback in a timely manner. Every single time we made a request or decided to make a change, they would give us valuable input and would always make themselves available very quickly to address our concerns. This included time and cost estimates which made it easier to project our project costings.

Throughout the entire duration of our project we were assigned one project manner who has been great to work with. His communication has been transparent and timely.
He made sure I received updates and information only as needed or only when I could act on them. This built a high level of trust and allowed me to focus on areas where I could add value.

We have been so impressed by the whole team at HQSoftware I’ve recently moved my other companies travel website to them, and have plans to work with them on other mobile applications in the future.

COO at Monterosa

It is my pleasure to recommend Sergei Vardomatski and his company to you as a partner for outsourced software development. We have worked together on several major web application projects and found them to be reliable and competent, delivering projects on time and within budget. I would not hesitate to work with the team again in future.

Stian Andreassen,
CEO at Maestro Media

I started doing business with HQSoftware from as early as October 2009. During this period of time, this company, and its team have successfully implemented more than 40 different web CMS projects for me including the Maestro Media presentation website. Most of the projects we did together were based on the "Apartment Selector” CMS that was also developed for me by their team.


Apartment Selector CMS is a fully custom built content management system aimed to facilitate online trade on the real estate market. The system gives the customer (a construction company) ability to put the whole construction site (usually a new district of a town) online. The visitors then can browse the offers, see the location of each house on a general site plan, pick the house group/a house/an apartment visually on a site plan, see the details on each house, see whether the apartment is vacant or sold, buy the apartment online, request a PDF sales brochure. Every project built with it might also have specific features requested by the customer for it. 


The system is built in .NET with a Microsoft SQL server as a database. The visualisation of the districts is made using Google api. The system integrates with the customer's internal systems for easy transfer of the content related to the apartments being sold like house descriptions, images, 3D models, prices, availability info. The integration is done using XML. Purchase and contact requests from the site are being posted to the customer's CRM.

Evgeniy Emelyanov,
Head of Software Development

The HQSoftware team worked on the development of the portal www.gdeetotdom.ru and carried out quality control tests on the software. The software had been developed on the basis of Bitrix CMS by four people. The total budget is over 3 thousand man-hours. In our opinion, experts at HQSoftware delivered tasks with required quality, in a timely manner and with the set budget. I recommend them as reliable partners and skilled developers.

Oksana Slipchenko,
Director at CastingMedia Group

Having worked with HQSoftware since November 2010, the scope of work they did for me ranged from analysis and development, to support of the online system that facilitated online sales and services of mу casting agency. The system fully integrates the internal and external (customer-side) workflows creating a transparent and smooth online e-commerce solution. They have picked up the work from another agency that failed to properly build the system and did a great job putting the things in order for me.


l should also mention specifically that they have also done GUl design work for me that included creating user-friendly interfaces for the software that they’ve already done, The project duration was about a year. The project value—about 14 man/months (2300 hrs). As a result, we are now able to do our business 100% online and we are fully transparent to all our customers. Doing business with us became much faster and easier to both actors and producers. Additionally, implementing strict software-driven processes within the company has put an amount of personnel mistakes to a minimum. All that has let us put our service to a much higher level boosting our sales bу 2 times, so the system has already paid off. 

I can without a doubt recommend HQSoftware as a reliable and professional IT service provider, and consultant.

Denis Afanasev,
Chief Executive Officer at CleverLeaf Technology

It is my pleasure to recommend the services of HQSoftware as I have been working with the company for the last 4 years on several projects. The team is strong in communicating the status of the project. They bring full attention and fully attempt to resolve every issue that we’ve ever brought to them. Their management skills helped make the process go smoothly. This is especially important because part of the project was done together with internationally distributed team.

 

What I most appreciated about working with HQSoftware was the combination of project management, transparency, accountability, and quality of code. The team has an intense focus upon achieving what the customer wants, but also keeps a focus on what the client needs. They are big enough not to be dependent on our project, but they're also small enough to care about it.

 

I recommend the team and am looking forward to working with them again in the future.

Anton Terekhov,
CEO at FiveBIRDS marketing agency

We have contracted HQSoftware to develop a part of Ichiba electronic trading platform (www.ichiba.ru). Ichiba is an online mall that unites a lot of small sellers and producers and enables them to create and manage their online shops in a few clicks using a simple web-based interface. Ichiba also provides the sellers with a noticeable set of additional services like shipments management, integration with their internal systems (data import and export), payment systems integration, content management services and such.


HQSoftware worked on the development of the eCRM modules, and a set of 3rd party services integration—which is a very important part of Ichiba. This allowed the end customer to subscribe for personalized mailings and communication via personal cabinet. The duration of the project was about 8 months. The total effort was over 500 man/hours.

The project was pushed to live in April 2011. Soon after that we had more than 1 million items of goods in our database.


Recently Ichiba has formed a united company with Russia's top market players like Price.ru and Begun. The service rendered was of a high quality, and I am fully satisfied with the process and results and I do recommend HQSoftware as a reliable and professional supplier.

Sergey Kisly,
Director at Superprint Ltd.

We contacted HQSoftware about 2 years ago asking them to help us build a set of web applications that would have helped us trade our services in a more efficient way. In response to that, HQSoftware created an “automated online order acceptance and processing system” and an online payment gateway. The system gives our store personnel and authorized customers the ability to rapidly create and process incoming orders.

 

SuperPrint Ltd. is a retail printing agency operating under the trademark Karandash. The core of our business is executing a huge number of micro orders like printing 2 pages or printing one T-shirt or one cup. The profitability of our business is fully dependent on how effectively we process each individual order. Thus, having an efficient IT infrastructure is vital.

 

The system features high load though very fast response times (less than 1 second for page updates). The orders accepted via the system can be paid online via the “Karandash payment gateway” and mailed to the customer. The system was created using the SCRUM methodology. That means that the developer delivered working portions of the full system as they were ready, we were able to start implementation immediately. As a result of the 1st half-year of our partnership with HQSoftware, we managed to process about 30% more orders, so the system paid off before it was fully completed. The development is done using MS.NET framework and MS SQL server. The total value of the project, for now, is more than USD 100,000. 

I need to say that HQSoftware has shown good level of understanding of our needs and a good level of dedication and responsibility. I fully recommend them as a professional and reliable IT consultant and a development company for advanced web applications.

UNDP Project Manager

I should also admit the high level of support and understanding that UNDP Project team received throughout the cooperation. The Project and its results earned positive evaluation from national executing partner and I'm sure that HQSoftware's job had made great input into this. I can recommend HQSoftware as a professional and reliable partner in software development.

 

HQSoftware was chosen among six other candidates according to UNDP rules and procedures for developing Electronic Trading Facility (later named tradebel.com) within UNDP Project "Enhancing Trade and Export Capacity in the Republic of Belarus".

 

This project was a part of the UNDP regional initiative "Wider Europe - Aid for Trade in Central Asia, South Caucasus, and Western CIS", aiming to promote inclusive economic growth by strengthening the international competitiveness of each participating state and to improve the standards of living throughout the region.
