What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
The final project turned out really well. We thought it’d be really complex, and there were a couple of things we couldn’t pull off, but we’re really happy with the app. It was just what we wanted. There are a lot of complex calculations internal to the app. It needs a lot of brains to come up with the right numbers. I believe we were finally able to get everything right.
How did 7EDGE perform from a project management standpoint?
Initially, we had in-person meetings with them for about a month. We opted to meet face-to-face at least once a week. This way, they’d get to know what we actually wanted, and, based on that, give us a framework of what the thing would look like and how we were going to build it. After that, we moved on to video calls.
We were regularly in touch with the engineers and we had daily meetings to discuss what had happened throughout the day, along with any issues or concerns we may have had. As the project got nearer to closure, the communication went down to once or twice per week.
They were really good and we liked how they dealt with things. There were a lot of changes made on the run, and they accommodated all of them. It was time-consuming and difficult for them to get things to where we wanted. Fortunately, their two developers helped us a lot to move things faster.
The project manager handled things very well and I never had much of an issue. When things got complex, Sajith was always there, helping us move the project forward.
What did you find most impressive about them?
They have really experienced developers. I specifically appreciated one of their developers’ ability to take an idea from my mind and put it into action. He understood what we actually wanted. As a company, they’re always helpful and ready to check in on us and our needs. They deliver what we want.
Are there any areas they could improve?
I was totally satisfied. Improvements are always there, but I can’t think of any right now.
Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?
I would definitely recommend working with 7EDGE, from a commitment, skill, and project management standpoint. I’ve worked with other companies previously, and they couldn’t deliver, so I’m more than happy to recommend these guys.
