They were really on top of everything and pushed everything together done really good. They know how important my timelines were and they made sure that they're dead to them and got everything done really quickly. They are making sure that all is set up smoothly.

Managing Director, Co-Founder at TempTribe, London
The team is very dynamic and is really flexible with picking up urgent bugs. I found that is a really good working relationship in that sense that the prices are very reasonable and they are accessible even over the weekend. So we didn't get that kind of service before.

In total, we have about 5–6 people working on the project, including dedicated iOS and Android developers, backend developers, and a project manager. Besides that, they have some quality assurance specialists and a designer. They have been rather professional in their communication and in their project management. They've really tried to go the extra mile to handle the project in the best way possible.

I’ve had such a pleasant experience with them, and these guys are a diamond in the rough. They’re such a pleasure to work with every day, even on weekends. We’re in constant communication. I really feel like they are part of our businesses. They’re always pushing me to refine my ideas, which is refreshing. They’re always thinking ahead about how we can make the product better. I feel very much like they’re an extension of the team.

Softermii has a solid team of developers. They had done an amazing job implementing the iOS UI from our Sketch design. They used their good sense of judgment helped us enhance our UI design on the fly, adhere to the original schedule (despite unforeseeable changes on our side) and great communication. I would highly recommend anyone who considers realizing his idea to talk Softermii. I will, without a doubt, be working again with them in the future

I originally reached out to Softermii when I needed to hit a tight deadline around the New Year. They delivered amazing results and worked through the whole holiday to make sure I could deliver on the project deadline. We later hired them for several high profile contracts. The results were consistently top quality and the devs are friendly and responsive. I worked with them both remotely and in-person over two years and I can say they are some of the best I have ever worked with!

This cooperation brought us only positive emotions!
