BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

GreenIQ has developed an IoT device. I am the Chief Technology Officer of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Eastern Peak?

We had a development challenge, as well as a business one. We needed quality developers quickly, so we decided to approach Eastern Peak.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our platform's functionalities include integration with other platforms like the Nest Protect device, IFTTT, Amazon Alexa, and so on. We needed Eastern Peak to develop this for us, but they also contributed with some of the core code of our platform.

How did you come to work with Eastern Peak?

We needed experience with several web technologies, specifically PHP and Scala. Developers for Scala are especially difficult to find. I knew Eastern Peak's principal from a previous company, so I had been familiar with their team for a while. We approached a few other agencies, but the developer that Eastern Peak provided us seemed to be the best fit for our company.

How much have you invested with Eastern Peak?

This is confidential.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with Eastern Peak for almost one year. Our contract was recently ended.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We wouldn't have worked with Eastern Peak for a whole year if the results weren't excellent. Their developer became another one of our team members, and generally performed well.

How did Eastern Peak perform from a project management standpoint?

I handled the project management during our collaboration. We didn't have a typical outsourcing structure, by which I would give tasks to Eastern Peak and they'd work on them. The developer was a part of our team, just like any other member.

What did you find most impressive about Eastern Peak?

Before Eastern Peak, we worked with another outsourcing company. The quality of the development was a big issue to us, and we've been impressed with Eastern Peak.

Are there any areas Eastern Peak could improve?

I didn't have a lot of interaction with Eastern Peak as a company, just with our developer, so I have no complaints.
