The Review
Feedback summary: 

Their development work is excellent, which has secured a smooth long-term collaboration. The team offers high-quality work that meets the end users’ needs. They deliver on schedule, to the required standard, and communicate effectively at all times.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a software development agency, working with our own and with external resources when needed. I’m the general manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 4R?

We’ve been working with them for more than 10 years and normally outsource with them, especially for projects with the LAMP stack. That’s their area of expertise.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We usually work with them solely for stack projects. In these cases, we do the design, and they work on the development. We also supervise the end results of the products. I know they do mobile developments as well, but we’ve never worked on a mobile project with them.

What is the team composition?

There are four developers involved with us.

How did you come to work with 4R?

We went to Argentina with the intention of finding a partner. While there, we interviewed several companies and chose them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them around 2004–2005, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The results are very good in terms of the price-quality ratio. On the projects we work with them, we take care of the QA as it’s not something they’re specialized in. They deliver quality products on time, meeting our requirements and high standards.

How did 4R perform from a project management standpoint?

We create very simple schedules and try to agree on deadlines that work for all of us. Normally we don’t have any problem with them on that side—they tend to be very precise. As for project management tools, I don’t know what they use internally. We use scrums and sprints.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The communication is great—we have multi-channel communication. We place great trust in them as we’ve been working together for so long. Our relationship with them is excellent.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could develop more expertize in other stacks, but I understand that there isn’t much on those. It’s an idea that could work for them though.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

No, I can't think of anything.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Despite the project's difficulties, 4r Soluciones ensured a positive outcome through their hard work and broad knowledge base. The team communicated clearly and solved many complex issues. They were always open to sharing ideas and collaborating on tasks. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I currently work as a freelance digital producer for advertising agencies. For the last five years, I’ve specialized in platform development. Now I work in project management and UI/UX platform design. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 4r Soluciones?

My last project with them was at the studio where I used to work. We designed an apartment rental platform for an important real estate company. This company mainly rents apartments to traveling businessmen, and have several buildings in Buenos Aires and other countries. We designed the platform, and they implemented it using a challenging tool called Airtable.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They used a lot of different technologies to build this web platform. They used frontend technologies like HTML and JavaScript for animation and used PHP to connect with Airtable. They also worked with the Airtable code, since it was the structure of the database.

What is the team composition?

It was a team of four throughout the project: three developers and the project manager.

How did you come to work with 4r Soluciones?

I met them in 2010, when they were working for an agency where I also worked. We had a project together, and I liked it. Since then, I’ve had a constant relationship with them across all the agencies and studios where I’ve worked.

What is the status of this engagement?

It started at the beginning of 2017, was implemented in varying phases, and ended at the beginning of 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They are committed and dedicated to their projects. Software development is sometimes unpredictable. I have plenty of experience with this kind of project, and you never know how they'll turn out. No matter the setbacks, they are constantly committed to the project. I enjoy working with their team because they deliver great results on every project.

How did 4r Soluciones perform from a project management standpoint?

They're always reachable, and our communication is great. They’re open to adapting to my methodology and collaborating on any element of the project.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’m most impressed by their commitment and their teamwork capabilities. They are very well-versed in development, and can solve almost any problem I give them.
