BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a web start-up built around social networking. We’re located in Grenoble, France and have about ten people working on various projects. My role on the current project was to provide technical documentation to the developer and to provide project management, bringing our stakeholders’ objectives to life.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Soshace?

The main business challenge on this project was to make a well-built first version of the app in a short time period, and then evaluate the responses of our users. Once we have developed a marketing strategy and the number of our users grows, we will then implement new features and monetize the project.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The goal of the project is to help people find each other. Working through Facebook and Google+ and using Google maps, our users will write their ads or search other users’ adds, then message each other. Our target market is Europe and English speaking countries.

Soshace performed all the development work and support during the first two months of the project; we provided the designs.

How did you come to work with Soshace?

We needed experienced full-stack web developers for this project. We found Soshace on Upwork and decided to work with them because their team writes quality code, their price is competitive, and they are responsive. Their developers have very high ratings on Upwork, and they clearly had the required experience.

What is the status of this engagement?

The overall project duration was about three months, maybe a bit more.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work or the impact of the engagement?

They did a great job, providing all of the features we needed in a timely manner. Soshace was responsive and professional. We are a young and growing startup and have not yet begun to monetize the system, so we don’t have any hard data as yet. As project manager, however, I can tell that the stakeholders are happy with the results so far.

How did Soshace perform from a project management standpoint? 

They covered the agreed scope and deliverables in the agreed schedule and were on budget.

What did you find most impressive about Soshace?

They are working mostly with JavaScript and its frameworks. They know all the best practices and know how to implement them. They work fast and plan their work process to reach their goals on time. Soshace is definitely a great JavaScript specialist.

Are there any areas Soshace could improve?

Since we had no problems during the process, the answer is no.
