What Our
Clients Are
Constrained with time and budget, we were in search of an experienced technology partner who could navigate through the migration work quickly and effectively. With D3V, we found the right experts who exceeded our expectations and got the job done in no time.
We used D3V to help us launch our app. They built the front end using React and then pushed to native versions of iOS and Android. Our backend was using AWS and Google Firebase for messaging. They were knowledgeable, experienced, and efficient. We will continue to use them in the future and have recommended their services to others looking for outside guidance.
We had an idea and D3V nailed it. Other vendors that we had worked with did not understand what we were trying to do - which was not the case with D3V. They worked with us through weekly meetings to create what is now the fastest and most accurate steel estimating software in the world. Could not have asked for anything better - what a Team!
Working with D3V was hands down one of the best experiences we’ve had with a vendor. After partnering, we realized right away how they differ from other development teams. They are genuinely interested in our business to understand what unique tech needs we have and how they can help us improve.
Our experience with D3V was fantastic. Their team was a pleasure to work with, very knowledgeable, and explained everything to us very clearly and concisely. We are very happy with the outcome of this project!
Protecting our customers data & providing seamless service to our customers was our top priority, which came at a cost. We are very satisfied with the cost savings & operational efficiency that D3V has achieved by optimizing our current setup. We’re excited about future opportunities for improvements through deriving insights from our 400 million biomechanics data points.
