What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
I have quality issues all the time, but the framework is still running, which means that it was built well. We just migrated it to Angular 5.
How did 500Tech perform from a project management standpoint?
They had an agile approach and we worked remotely from one another. They received guidelines from the UX designer, and gave us feedback from backend developers, regarding the integration with the RESTful API that they were going to expose. During peak times, they were willing to come over to our office, just to make sure that the integration would run faster. Adam also came over to fix some more complex infrastructure issues. He’s also visited us a few months ago for a day, to advise us on some more complex things we needed to do.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Their level of technology, professionalism, and accountability is remarkable. There were times when we prevented the backend developers from progressing, but they still pushed everyone and made their own progress, without letting others stop them. They cared about the project just like anyone from our company.
Are there any areas they could improve?
Up until now, we’ve had some bug issues, but I’m not sure whether 500Tech was the cause. Since we don’t have automated unit testing, we encountered too many bugs.
Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?
They find the right people to work with us, and they teach everyone else on the client’s end how to work, and what the best practices are. I advise clients to learn as much as they can from 500Tech.
