We're a group of passionate engineers based in Nettuno (Rome). Our clients have a direct relationship with their dedicated developers and a direct impact on the technology we craft on their behalf. Everyday we're committed to answering these questions positively and honestly, to:
Maurizio and his team are excellent at design and implementation. They are great at sizing projects and delivering them as promised. For extra credit, they are pleasant to be with!Jim Kleckner - VP Engineer
CloudPhysics is one of the top 10 virtualization companies based in Silicon Valley. We are currently working on the front-end side of their product following the specs created by their designers. At their early stage they required a front-end developer and given that good programmers are hard to find locally Maurizio started collaborating remotely with them. After two years of sustained growth other developers from OLAB joined the team and we are still working with them. We work following an agile methodology with two weeks sprints, a code reviews process and daily updates through web calls. In this case we follow our clients requirements regarding the process and the technologies used.
People make the world go round, not money! Technical ability can be really lost if the people you are working with don’t know how they add value… The entire team at Olab know what they are good at, how to add value and deliver.Clare Metcalf - The Bosses Boss!
Huunuu is an innovative web application with the challenging objective to modernising the death industry making death and funerals easier to talk about. When we met Clare and Freya for the first time they were in the middle of working with an outsourcing company based in India and after 10 months they were still without a working product. When we started working with them we wanted to reuse what they had as much as possible to support their journey but the bugs were too many and the architecture was overthought. After a couple of weeks we took the challenging decision to refactor the existing code.
I was once again thinking about the “build or buy” dilemma. I found the best of both worlds in OLab. Maurizio's friendly and professional approach gives with a team member's input but also the flexibility that is required at the early stages of building a new startup.Mohsen M Khalkhali - Partner @Iratel Ventures
Ento is a web app that suggests the most appropriate home automation products based on the customer's budget and home size. They had some bad experiences with software development agencies mainly because they needed to sign a new agreement for every change to their initial specifics. For a startup at a very early stage it's impossible to have such detailed specs. In the process of building an MVP is key to make changes listening the feedback from early adopters. We understand how important is to provide a daily support. We follow an Agile SCRUM process with weekly sprints, daily updates, online code repository and code reviews.
We had compared the work from a number of different contractors around the world by asking each company to create a quick prototype of our new product. OLAB beat out other companies in both design quality and cost. The designers at OLAB are top class and provided valuable insight into the usability of our product.Robert Armitano - VP Engineer
With initial funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Zizmos is building a cost-effective cloud-connected seismic network that provides earthquake early-warning and high-resolution shake maps for urban areas. We have designed and built a mobile app to setup the Zizmos IOT devices via bluetooth. Starting from the wireframes we iterated following Zizmos feedback till we created the mockups and the graphics elements. We built the iOS app in native language and we gave support to the Zizmos engineers in order to communicate with their devices. Every day we updated Zizmos team about the status of the work and at least once in a week we had a call. We are proud of our collaboration with Zizmos hoping that the app we built will contribute to save lifes.
We have been working with OLAB for many years. The studio is ultra reliable and accommodating. OLAB has been a support in so many other ways, on a strategic level and as friends. A colourful group of people; inspiring and skilled.Joseph Kohlmaier - Founder
Polimekanos is a design agency based in London. We have been their technical partner for more than 4 years, collaborating in many projects and we feel we're part of their team. We've worked on the programming side of their projects. Based on their design we have developed the structure for several e-commerce and websites for clients such as architects, product designers, organizations and artists. Our goal was to define the best back-end in order to allow users to easily insert the content and the most flexible architecture from a developer point of view considering the current design and the future features that the client would need.
