What was the scope of their involvement?
I designed the core structure of the application and they developed the most crucial parts of the system, mostly from scratch.
The technology was developed in Java. Most of their team are Java developers and are pretty good at what they do. They developed a business intelligence system for anti-money laundering protection and they also developed the core transaction system, which is the center of the whole product.
In addition, they developed a payment API for the system for other providers or merchants to integrate with our system.
What is the team composition?
There's one leader and one architect who helps me to design the core functionalities. We have centralized project management.
How did you come to work with 98elements?
They were recommended to me. They're a very professional team, but at that point, they weren’t a recognizable brand; they were focused on their technical and business side.
What is the status of this engagement?
We began work with them in July 2017 and the work is ongoing. It's currently in the maintenance and stabilization phase. We will probably be developing new features in the near future.
