What was the scope of their involvement?
Binary Evolution built our core system. They developed a series of interchangeable and adjustable parts and put them together to create a flexible and powerful platform. Their strategies allow for future adaptations to accommodate multiple aspects of our business.
Their team led us through the conception phase, suggesting advice regarding design elements and integration strategies. We collaborated to define the features we wanted to include in our platform, and how to best implement them. Basically, we told them what we wanted, and they figured out how to do it. After helping us identify our user base, they created an identification system using database calls that depended on the user’s method of accessing our site.
Once all the plans were in place, Binary Evolution built the system using primarily SQL, PHP, and Java technologies. Because we operate in the pharmaceutical industry, we had to account for a lot of legal requirements and regulations. Binary Evolution handled this with skill.
We’ve finished the platform’s basic elements, and we’re now expanding in terms of features and functionalities. Currently, users can choose to send donations after they complete a series of tasks. We’re looking into expanding our system to include other markets.
What is the team composition?
We work with about five people from Binary Evolution, including a project manager.
How did you come to work with Binary Evolution?
In the past, I was using a message board to solve my technical problems. I noticed that one individual consistently provided the best answers. At some point, I ran into an issue that fell beyond the capabilities of my internal team. I directly contacted the individual from the message board, who turned out to be Chuck (President, Binary Evolution). He was incredibly helpful and willing to talk me through the problem. He offered a great solution that was within my budget.
That was 17 years ago. I always look to Binary Evolution for technical assistance, so they were an easy choice for this project. I’ve grown to trust their team with everything.
How much have you invested with them?
In total, this project will cost us $150,000, but we’ve only paid around half of that at this point in the engagement.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started the project in June 2016, and the work is ongoing.
