What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
We were able to take our most recent project directly into development because Antenna Consulting delivered such high-quality UI/UX design. They ensured that their software implementations were compatible with our existing infrastructure. As such, customers have responded very well to the updated software.
How did Antenna Consulting perform from a project management standpoint?
Anthony was readily available and closely monitored the quality output of his consultants. When my team had issues or questions, the consultants responded immediately. Such rapid response times meant that roadblocks and challenges did not deter our deadlines. We communicated via email.
We used Jira and Confluence to record all of our designs. Although Antenna Consulting used another type of UI/UX software to generate designs, they worked with our software and embedded all screenshots into Jira and Confluence. They created a Confluence summary page with all of the UI/UX designs and wireframes, and they organized everything by project in Jira.
What did you find most impressive about them?
We wanted to progress quickly, and the consultants learned the complex mining industry and our software in very little time. Antenna Consulting was incredibly adept at accommodating conflicting customer requirements and building functional workflows. The consultants worked concisely and delivered what was expected from our customers. We appreciated their quick and efficient manner.
We now have three people who know our software very well. The consultants are like internal resources that are available on demand. As soon as we organize our yearly roadmap, I know Antenna Consulting will be prepared to work with us.
Are there any areas they could improve?
We would appreciate further input on how our software can evolve from the perspective of UI/UX. However, I’m sure they will provide this if we work together in the future.
Any advice for potential customers?
While Antenna Consulting is great at asking tough questions of customers, internal product managers need to facilitate this. Leveraging these relationships can reveal valuable insights that will ultimately benefit the software.
