Great Experience - Highly recommended if You're in the Market For Software development

When looking for the team to help me build my custom workout software, I posted job offerings on several freelance sites. WorkXpress saw my request and reached out to me. Out of the dozens of candidates that I screened (which included individuals, teams, and companies), they were by far the most experienced and professional. They have built hundreds if not thousands of different software applications and are very detailed, organized, and knowledgeable. I honestly could not image choosing another client to work with.

Overall I am very satisfied with my experience of building my application with WorkXpress. You get to know your team throughout the process and they are great people! They try hard to understand your goals/needs and present a detailed transparent plan. I am currently in the final step of the development process, and I am thrilled with the results of all the hard work the team has put into my software. My development team is super responsive to any communication that I submit through the portal. I would absolutely recommend WorkXpress to anyone who is looking to design and build a great looking, highly functional web application!

Pros

Here are a few reasons why:
- They are based in the US which is awesome if you live here!
- Their bid was actually the best price that I was quoted (even from overseas clients).
- They do a detailed design proposal before you even pay them a dime
- The do everything by the book from a legal perspective so that both parties are protected
- You get a portion of a team (because they also works on several other projects) dedicated to you
- Everything is documented and has a paper trail in the management portal

Cons

Things that I've learned:
- After developing my software right along side WorkXpress I have realized how difficult and time consuming software development is (yes you will be VERY involved in the process, it is not just "this is what I want" and its gets built perfectly. Expect to spend countless hours communicating through the portal and submitting revisions/bugs).
- If it doesn't say it explicitly in the design document, then it isn't guaranteed to be built the way you loosely referenced or had it in your head (It is very hard to communication every little detail that you want your application, but try to get the design document as close as possible to exactly what you want before you pay the deposit and begin development. Say for example that you want an artist to draw a body, so you give him a sketch. Your sketch needs to include the # of hairs on the body, # freckles, length of fingers, size of belly button, etc (yes you need that level of precision). Like I said before it is hard to know every function/response that you want your application to have until the beta is build, so for advanced projects (built for customers to use) expect to spend 20-60% of the initial cost again in "change orders." You probably won't spend much extra in change orders if you are building an internal solution b/c you won't care as much for the fine UI details).
-When they say basic UI that means that your application will resemble your mockups and the functionality will be there, but all elements are truly "off the shelve". Kind of like if you were getting a website designed and the designer gave you a prebuilt website, implemented your functionality (shop, blog, etc.) and then put your logo on it. Don't get me wrong, it will still look good, but it will just be basic. Which is fine for internal company or personal software. But if you are building a user end application, you will need to upgrade to advanced UI. Make sure to get quoted with advanced UI if you are building a user end application!

SERVOLIFT LLC is a leading supplier of Material Handling and Process equipment to the Pharmaceutical Industry. In 2006, we realized we needed to combine all of our disconnected data (excel, access, paper files,.. ) into one company-wide application. We could not find an out of the box solution.

Using the WorkXpress tools, I personally developed the application that handles most aspects of our business including Quoting (beautifully formatted PDF's with pictures of our products emailed directly from the software in just a few clicks), Project Management, BOM, Scheduling, Purchasing, Shipping/Receiving, Customer order entry, Inventory, Commissions, Employee Training, PTO Management, Quality Control, custom reports .....and so much more. The robust automation and ease of use are simply amazing! I continue to find new ways to use the software to improve efficiency and boost the performance of our employees.

In the time we have been using WorkXpress, our company has more than doubled in size and the software has helped us manage that.

Regarding support - WorkXpress is outstanding. They respond quickly and even after hours and weekends if critical.

Pros

It is easy to create a highly complex application without hand coding. The system is just amazing.

Cons

After 8 years of using their software I don't see any cons.

Staffing and Recruiting Application

Reviewed on 2016/04/05

12 months ago, workXpress and our organization joined in a partnership to develop and deploy our cloud based application, currently in production today. When starting our dental staffing business, it was quickly realized that we needed to develop a tool that would manage the requisition process. WorkXpress has been simply miraculous in extracting our objectives as we envisioned, then bringing them to life. What we now have discovered through this process, is that the application we have developed, will revolutionize the recruitment and staffing industries. Workxpress has proven to be more than just a partner as they have been keenly interested in our success and continue to play a major role in guiding and supporting us. We are excited about the future and what it holds as we continue to partner with workXpress on future cloud based development opportunities. We are grateful to CEO, Treff LaPlante, and his entire organization, for having the instinct and foresight to see the potential of our application on a global scale.

Many thanks!

Great ERP System

Reviewed on 2015/10/28
Review Source

In 2007 we shopped around for a software company to supply us with complete ERP system, during that process, we found that many companies could not accommodate our needs and found we needed to build our system from scratch. We contracted WorkXpress to build us a systems that could handled multiple sub assembling, inventory control, RMA process, BOM, sales orders and engineering changes. At the time we were running two systems one for sales orders and one for inventory controller; Workxpress was able to combine our systems into one easy to control system. During the design phase, WorkXpress made sure we had in place exactly what we were looking for, and if not, they revised the design in a quick an efficient manner. The team is nothing but professional from the top on down and the designer that worked with us was very knowledgeable and quick to understand our project.

Pros

the ability to create report as needed is a big plus

Biggest mistake I've made in awhile

Reviewed on 2015/06/08

I hired WX for a custom application to manage inventory, online ordering, CRM and delivery routing for a delivery service. It's not rocket science but required a bit of custom programming to work for us. Based on their "5GL" PAAS pitch and lofty promises we signed an agreement for just under $25K and were promised delivery in 12 weeks. We cancelled our agreement when, after FIVE MONTHS we got our first true taste of the horrendous user interface they were forcing us to use and we realized their team no longer understood my user or business needs, despite plenty of documents, use cases, mockups, and supporting information that we gave them. Our project manager was reassigned less than halfway through and that critical role on our project was never replaced. We were promised professional, trained programmers and what we got were new hires that had little programming or UI experience, asking us questions about what we meant by responsive design. Their platform is not responsive, it looks like it was designed in 1997 or so; their sales team is slick but their capabilities are far below what they advertise. I lost significant time and money for a valuable business opportunity that I will never get back, based on their shoddy management of our project and poor understanding of the user roles and user needs associated with it.

Pros

Can't think of any. Don't be fooled by their website, do your due diligence and research companies that actually used them.

Cons

They make you use their cumbersome ticketing system online for managing the development of your project. It's built on the same clunky, non-intuitive, non-responsive framework that they build all applications on. Their platform is OLD. This company is seriously behind the times. They overpromised and underdelivered. :(
