They were always attentive and got back to us when we needed it.

Their responsiveness and timeliness helped increase organizational involvement, and clients often compliment the UI/UX. Communication has remained consistent despite working remotely, and they’ve seamlessly integrated any improvements.

It seemed like the entire team was behind me.

The app was downloaded 3 million times within 8 months due in part to Utility’s polished UI design, which they executed a week ahead of schedule. All-around dedication to the project and the ability to dissect requirements nurtured success. Adaptability and communication are also prominent assets.

They over-deliver and don’t nickel-and-dime you.

Utility exceeded all expectations, and the app had good standing when it was live. The team was organized, communicative, and brought the app to life in a creative and accessible way. Utility was trustworthy, reliable, and despite occasional challenges, their deliverables were perfect in the end.

They left us in the dark and let it get worse and worse

Although Utility built a solid backend for the app, they did not develop a functional frontend, and the source code they delivered was ultimately unusable. The team’s communication skills were lacking, and their ability to meet deadlines fell short. Costs were unreasonable given the end result.
