What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
We’re still in the development stage, but I’ve yet to see any significant issues with their code. They’re diligent, productive, and quick. Their development team wields the technical expertise necessary to provide actionable feature suggestions and further improve the app. That collaborative approach fostered a positive relationship between our respective teams.
How did The Awesome Company perform from a project management standpoint?
We started the project by planning out each task, ordering them by priority and dictating how much time it should take to complete each request. Since then, they’ve managed the project internally. Their management team oversees the developers to make sure they stay on schedule. I’m happy with their ability to able to deliver each section of the project within the allotted timeline.
There’s a seven-hour time zone difference between us, but they’re always responsive despite that challenge. They’re available in the evening, so I never have to wait a day and a half for someone to get back to me. If we have any problems or questions, I’ll send them an email or use Slack. They usually respond within 20–30 minutes. We also communicate via Skype when necessary.
As a bilingual team, they speak both Russian and English exceedingly well. That makes QA testing and other interactions with my team possible without having to translate information. Their writing skills are excellent, too, so it’s easy to interact with them.
What did you find most impressive about them?
They’re honest, transparent, and have their own professional opinions that they don’t hesitate to share. As a result, we gave them access to all of our online systems in case of future IT issues. They handle most tasks without much oversight.
Are there any areas they could improve?
It’d be nice if they offered hybrid development for companies who aren’t interested in native applications.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
I recommend using them. They’re able to help companies improve their situation.
