Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?
AOT Technologies was incredible in terms of proper software development, methodology, lifecycles, communication, and on-time delivery. If we had a delay for any reason, we were told in advance. The team paid attention to details. They were very professional and responsive, and I can't say anything bad about them. It's been a positive experience for both myself, and other people I've referred them to.
How did AOT Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?
The budget and the deadlines were maintained. We worked through a fixed price and received notifications on a weekly basis about the status. The success of every project comes down to requirements. We had an initial mockup stage, wrote down a list of functionalities, and worked against those. AOT Technologies has an Agile and efficient approach. They can ask the right questions in order to do a great job, and they have surpassed our expectations.
What did you find most impressive about AOT Technologies?
I've worked with many companies and appreciate AOT Technologies' passion. They can push back, even if that ultimately costs them more. If it can lead to better quality and a better design, AOT Technologies will do it. They take quite a bit of pride in their work, which is hard to find.
Are there any areas AOT Technologies could improve?
AOT Technologies is a young company and cannot sell themselves very well. This is something I've noticed, and it is something they could work on. They have a fairly good infrastructure, but they could work on training customers better. It leads to a better product to have people trained on the process and methodology. In my case, since I'm familiar with AOT Technologies, it was an easy process in particular. We used the same methodology and spoke the same language, so the work was successful, but there are people for whom AOT Technologies was too accommodating and allowed for version creep. The client and account manager could be stronger, but AOT Technologies is looking at improving that area.
