DrupalJedi developed the backend of a knowledge sharing website. To bolster functionality beyond that of standard Drupal development, they utilized third-party technology to code a booking and payment system.
Their systematic approach and talented development team delivered a near-perfectly executed C2C platform. While minor issues have occurred, the overall quality of the site greatly outweighs any negative critique. Excellent communication and a straightforward process make them a top-notch firm.
“They live up to the reputation of being Jedi.”
Introduce your business and what you do there.
I’m the CEO of People Teach Me IVS. We’re a C2C knowledge sharing platform.
What challenge were you trying to address with DrupalJedi?
We needed a developer to create our company’s platform.
What was the scope of their involvement?
The UI/UX of the website had already been designed, so DrupalJedi completely built out the Drupal backend. The core of the platform is booking system that was developed by another company. DrupalJedi upgraded it to serve as a not only a booking system but payment and customer handling system as well. They utilized third-party technology to integrate website features that aren’t standard to Drupal development.
What is the team composition?
We worked with two project managers and 2–3 backend developers.
How did you come to work with DrupalJedi?
I came across them years ago on Drupal’s list of partners. As an entrepreneur, project costs are important to me. I assumed they’d be too expensive; however, I gave them a call and was surprised by their price point. It’s exceptional considering how well their organized and the quality of code they produce.
How much have you invested with them?
We spent around €15,000 ($18,635 USD).
What is the status of this engagement?
The project took place October 2017–December 2017.
What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
We’ve experienced a few feedback elements issues, but those are marginal compared to the size of the product. We have few if any negative criticisms of what they’ve produced.
How did DrupalJedi perform from a project management standpoint?
All deadlines were held with few exceptions. All communication goes through the project manager which is a different process than what I’m accustomed too. Considering the results, they’ve performed flawlessly. The project manager was available to speak with me each day and I’m very impressed with his team. They’re extremely open about what they do and the process is very clean. Each element they produce is well-tested and rarely necessities repeat development sprints.
What did you find most impressive about them?
I know from working with large development firms how difficult it is to find a development team capable of accomplishing a complex project. DrupalJedi is by far the best company I've ever worked with outside of Denmark. They take tasks seriously and are open to customer feedback. They believed in our vision and produced an excellent product. We had a polite and productive rapport even during development crunch-times. They live up to the reputation of being Jedi.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No. They’re awesome.
