What was the scope of their involvement?
The application runs on Apex, Salesforce’s programming language. We had some requirements that called for specific functionality within a specific time frame. Our sophisticated evaluation system certifies overall performance of salespeople and generates scores based on quantitative and qualitative metrics.
They’ve met certain milestones and built all the necessary functionality into various sprint releases. We’re on schedule to deliver version 1.2 in early December 2018 and version 1.3, the production version, in early January 2019.
What is the team composition?
We work with one primary project manager and a secondary contact here in the States, then a head project lead, his direct assistant, and another two or three people in their offices in India.
How did you come to work with Azul Arc?
My CTO researched a number of companies and built a shortlist of three providers. We met each of them and were most impressed by Azul Arc’s CEO and his team. There was a level of comfort, and they really understood what we were trying to accomplish.
They took time to listen and made us think realistically about our timelines and other expectations. The other vendors just told us what we wanted to hear, but Azul Arc was open and honest with us. That immediate understanding and trust made us choose them over anything else.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent close to $500,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
The initial evaluation took place in July and August 2017 and we started building the code in September 2017. Our work together is ongoing.
