What was the scope of their involvement?
They worked on a new large project for us. Once again, the solution consisted of an Android part as well as a server part, which actually operates the whole project. The software is aimed at collecting prices for a lot of SKUs in many locations of Russia. It accumulates the data from all of the fieldwork partners across the whole country into one location.
What is the team composition?
We cooperated with four different divisions: the first was the team that worked on the software, and we had a team that worked on the Android part. We also had a team of testers and one project manager who managed all of the divisions. That person was able to address any questions we had if needed.
How much have you invested in them?
We have spent about $200,000 USD to date.
What is the status of this engagement?
All of the software is finalized, and the guarantee period is over, which lasted two months. We are currently receiving technical support from them.
RESULTS & FEEDBACK
What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
We have been able to exclude our field resources from the operation. They don’t need to enter the product codes as everything is now automated, and we have cut our costs when it comes to resources.
How did Code Inspiration perform from a project management standpoint?
Everything ran smoothly. We used Jira to contact them as well as Skype which was more convenient for us. Since we’ve now finalized the software, we aren’t using Jira anymore.
What did you find most impressive about them?
The speed of their response has been the main thing this time around. They send us data and even respond to us overnight, which has been important for us.
Are there any areas they could improve?
There is nothing to mention.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Get the supplier more involved in all the details and stages of your project. Make it more understandable for them.
