What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
The biggest challenge for them was the timing. Our CEO was very ambitious on the timing of this, but they were able to produce a functional frontend within a very short timeframe. I thought it would take three times as long. Their work was generally well-received by our internal team. Our CEO has had some issues controlling the 3D view with his MacBook Pro’s mouse, but it’s worked well on Windows and otherwise.
How did Celerik perform from a project management standpoint?
They were great in terms of project management. Someone on our end who was working on the API would make changes to it and not tell Celerik, which would screw up the connectivity of the frontend that they were working on, but that was really our fault. On their side, they seemed very organized; they had the pipeline set up really well, and they used DevOps to full capacity. I was really impressed by that.
What did you find most impressive about them?
They were very easy to work with and organized, and they came through on a tight timeline. Overall, we were very pleased with them.
Are there any areas they could improve?
They’re in Columbia, so there was a little bit of a geographical disconnect. Also, they could have had better connectivity with the backend. As I said, we had someone working on the API who wasn’t the best at communicating, so Celerik could’ve been more proactive on that side, but again, I think that was more our fault than theirs.
Any advice for potential customers?
I would recommend them.
