Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?
Azoft performed well, and our iOS and Android platforms arrived on time but slightly over budget. The web version had some delays, but obstacles were clearly communicated, and the budget was not affected.
We have 20,000 workforce learners that have used our app. We’ve worked with organizations such as World Learning and the United Nations, who used our app when they brought 1,000 people from all over for their last youth summit in January. We are training teachers in Liberia because of their education crisis there. They’ve told us that “Unleesh enables us to continuously share new content with school capacity leads while they are out in the field. With Unleesh, these schools are able to learn new approaches and strategies, take action in their school communities, submit actions towards building a digital portfolio of work, and exchange ideas with their peers. It creates a bridge across geography for powerful, continuous learning and collaboration.”
How did Azoft perform from a project management standpoint?
What set them apart for me was they could provide iOS, Android, and web development, as well as QA and project management. They were flexible with my requirements and really worked as a partner in creating a world-class platform.
They do everything from beginning to end through project managers who I can talk to directly. I’ve worked with different offshore firms, and Azoft has a better grasp of the English language than most Americans I know. They’re really detailed and responsive. They’ve been a great partner since we don’t have our own in-house developers. They feel like they are in-house because they’re always responsive and know what’s going on with our app.
Are there any areas Azoft could improve?
Their strength was in mobile applications. The web application was slower to develop, but that could have been because we were trying to get it done quickly. We wanted to do mobile first, so on the web development side, we were re-engineering the mobile apps for the web, which wasn’t as smooth of a process.
