Feedback summary: 

Internal stakeholders are delighted with the improved software development system. The 7Factor Software team is knowledgeable and experienced, and they effectively guided the implementation of each product. Their professional approach and emphasis on collaboration made for a successful partnership.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the director of engineering at an omnichannel marketing company. We focus on the automotive sector.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 7Factor Software?

We had a legacy platform that was becoming less and less reliable, and we were dealing with technical debt from previous attempts to solve problems. We decided to rebuild our system, and brought in 7Factor Software to help us migrate data and rethink our development processes. We also hired them to guide and train our team in using the new technologies that we wanted to implement.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We began the project by identifying deliverables and setting deadlines with their team. About 6-8 weeks into the engagement, we co-hosted a day of hands-on training, where our staff had the opportunity to learn about their work. Afterward, we selected a group of our developers to participate in more in-depth training. The idea was to have these individuals distribute their knowledge of the new system to the rest of our team.

7Factor Software implemented a variety of development tools, ultimately establishing a build server with updated pipeline management. They introduced us to Docker and Concourse CI, which made up the backbone of our new, cloud-based system. They used Hashicorp’s Terraform to create a scriptable environment with a flexible infrastructure, and added Hashicorp’s Vault for sensitive data storage. They leveraged two AWS products, Kinesis and S3, to build out our development pipeline, and they integrated Datadog for cloud monitoring and container management.

What is the team composition?

We communicated with Jeremy (Founder, 7Factor Software) and two other individuals who were assigned to our project.

How did you come to work with 7Factor Software?

When I started in my current role, 7Factor Software had already completed a project for us, and a second one was in progress. I had the opportunity to meet with Jeremy and learn more about his company. I was impressed by his wealth of knowledge, and, after meeting with my leadership team, I reached out to gauge his interest in a third project. I knew that his team would be an ideal partner based on their track record of success and familiarity with our organization. After an initial discussion, we negotiated a price, and then decided to move forward with the project.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $140,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The engagement lasted from September–December 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Their work has transformed our development staff’s approach to building software. My team is excited about this new system, and I’ve seen an increase in their motivation and energy.

How did 7Factor Software perform from a project management standpoint?

Communication was frequent, and their team was on-site at least once a week. We used Slack to exchange information, and Jira to prioritize tasks. I met with Jeremy almost every week to review our workflow in Jira.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The breadth of knowledge they have regarding a wide variety of technologies stood out to me. They were able to fully engage with any idea, concept, or tool that I put forth. No matter the context, their team could provide specific details and offer valuable feedback. There was never a situation where they had to research a topic and follow up with me.

Are there any areas they could improve?

At times, they struggled to balance competing projects, and we sacrificed a bit in terms of planning as a result.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Take advantage of their experience. Let them help you select the tools and products that will fit best with your project. They’re a well-rounded group of developers, and they serve as expert guides for cloud-based software implementation.

Feedback summary: 

By improving performance and enhancing usability and functionality, 7Factor Software has increased sales tenfold and reduced hosting costs. The team's diligent service and technological capabilities have exceeded expectations. They are a timely and cost-effective partner. 

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CEO of a consulting company. We help early-stage tech startups bring their products to market.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire 7Factor Software?

We did not have the internal capacity to develop a client's software product after we had taken the project over from another vendor. 

What were your goals for this project?

The next version of the product needed to include upgraded frameworks, a rebuilt user interface, and new features. We also had to identify and resolve performance problems and then implement initial usability and functionality enhancements. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

My company’s CTO recommended 7Factor Software. After interviewing Jeremy (Founder, 7Factor Software), my team determined 7Factor Software was the right partner for this project.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

7Factor Software has provided software development, architecture design, and cloud infrastructure implementation services for an outdated software product. They have implemented deployment automation and automated testing systems. The team has also completed migration from Rackspace to Amazon Web Services.  

What was the team composition?

My team works with a software architect/lead engineer and two software engineers. We also engage with an infrastructure architect as needed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

We had a product that was barely functional after five years of disregard. 7Factor Software upgraded the product to modern frameworks and provided significant performance improvements. For instance, 7Factor Software reduced the landing page's login load time from several minutes to under 5 seconds. This drastically improved productivity for current users and made the product more appealing to potential consumers. They provide automated tests to ensure that the product remains stable.

In the second phase of the project, 7Factor Software made the product more aesthetically pleasing and eliminated major performance and design issues. Our client’s sales of this redesigned product have increased tenfold. Finally, migration from Rackspace to AWS has cut hosting costs to one third of what they were. 7Factor Software’s automation implementation significantly improved code quality and stability.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

7Factor Software has addressed client requests. Every team member has been responsive and reliable. 

What did you find most impressive about this company?

7Factor Software is the best development partner we have worked with. The team has the skill set and industry knowledge to create success for customers. Their diligence and timely deliveries have exceeded our expectations many times. Although it is unusual for 7Factor Software to make a mistake, they quickly resolve errors at no extra cost. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

They should scale their staff so that we can hire them for more projects.

The final solution detects anomalies in advance and prevents them from occurring. 7Factor Software’s technical expertise and penchant from problem-solving have made them a go-to partner in the future. Regular updates, flexibility, and timeliness enabled a smooth workflow.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the senior vice president of business development for an advertising and marketing company. We generate leads for the auto industry. I was the vice president of product at the time of the engagement.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 7Factor Software?

We had challenges with anomalies causing errors in our most important data. Our team tried for six months to identify and fix the problem, but they were unsuccessful. We engaged 7Factor Software to address the issue.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

In our kick-off, we talked through the scope of the project, defining the problem to address and the goals we wanted to achieve. 7Factor Software identified the issue causing the anomalies right away and came up with 2–3 solutions within a week. However, the problem broke down into 3–4 areas, and we had other points we wanted to address as well. As a result, their team worked with us to build agility into our scope so we could incorporate scope changes down the line.

Once we established the requirements, 7Factor Software deployed a data scientist to work alongside our team and fix each problem area. They integrated into our team and attended daily stand-ups until the scope of the work was accomplished.

What is the team composition?

Jeremy (Founder, 7Factor Software) was my main point of contact if we had any issues, but we primarily worked with a data scientist.

How did you come to work with 7Factor Software?

7Factor Software had a working relationship with our company before I came into my position. Our chief product officer spoke so highly of their team that I didn’t have to look at other firms for this project.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $17,000–$20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from February–March 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We no longer have these anomalous data spikes impacting our core datasets. We can detect them and stop them before they even happen. 7Factor Software’s solutions have made our data more intelligent and accurate.

How did 7Factor Software perform from a project management standpoint?

They kept us updated on everything we needed to know concerning our scope, schedule, and budget. When we asked to keep their team for a little while longer to address other issues, 7Factor Software accommodated us. Due to our long relationship, they understand our company and its needs well. 

We communicated with their data scientist in daily standups. We had a weekly call with Jeremy to go over progress and address any roadblock that may have come up.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They excel at identifying and solving challenges quickly. They offer a fresh yet experienced perspective to the problem-solving process.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, we’re very happy with their work. We continue to contract 7Factor Software for projects.

Any advice for potential customers?

We found it helpful to first define our main challenge and then discuss it weekly. Daily updates also provided us with a fuller picture of the project’s status and upcoming tasks.
