Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?
The database for which we’re creating the curation engine is the core of our business. It’s being used for multiple sets of analysis for order management and in a variety of other ways. I wouldn’t say that we couldn’t have done this without Algoscale, but they were helpful in speeding up the process. We had started the development, so they came in as an auxiliary resource.
How did Algoscale Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?
They performed well and worked with us in a collaborative fashion. Algoscale was responsive to our requests and brainstorming sessions, either coming up with interesting ideas and out-of-the-box suggestions or challenging the concepts we already had in place. They responded to our emails in a timely fashion. We also used Skype, Cisco WebEx, and other communication tools.
What did you find most impressive about Algoscale Technologies?
I appreciated their ability to come up with certain ideas involving newer technologies.
Are there any areas Algoscale Technologies could improve?
No, they’ve been a great partner and have helped us whenever we needed it. They continue to grow and have tried to be a true partner, bending over backward to meet our deadlines. There is always room for improvement in some areas, but I have no specific recommendations for Algoscale.
What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Algoscale Technologies?
Clients need to have a vision when partnering with anyone. Be prepared for different kinds of contingencies. We crafted our own model neatly, which wasn’t Algoscale’s responsibility.
