What was the scope of their involvement?
They provided some staff augmentation, but they also helped coach us through some big projects. They did a lot of workshops and sessions with our team, and they imbedded with us to process requests, designer views, and architecture. They were very influential in some big architecture decisions.
Our team built tools and libraries to increase the productivity of other engineers. We focused on shared libraries involving authentication, templates, generators, or anything else that might get plugged into a project. The main product we focused on was a line of business application that helped with our invoicing, billing, and product management.
What is the team composition?
One contact worked with our accounts receivable team on invoicing and billing. The other worked on our general-purpose line of business team to build our principal application. He guided that team and acted as a lead.
How did you come to work with Cedarcode?
We were a sponsor at a conference, and we posted on the job board that we had openings. They attend the conference every year, saw our posting, and reached out to us. We met for about an hour, then we interviewed and hired them about a month later.
How much have you invested with them?
There was a budget, but I wasn't privy to the exact numbers. This was a very large project, and about a quarter of our IT team worked on it.
What is the status of this engagement?
I believe the collaboration started at the end of 2014 or the beginning of 2015. I left the company in 2017, but the contract was ongoing when I left.
