What was the scope of their involvement?
We started off with a smaller project where I needed a dashboard solution for internal use. It was the perfect place to start because I wanted to see if they could understand complex stuff and build a custom solution for us. It worked quite well, and about two months later, we had the challenge of building an online platform for a big insurance company from Germany.
We were doing the whole product from scratch and the team at Codista built the web platform for billing insurances online. In the domain of life insurance, having a complex online process with an identity check was new. Codista used Python and Django to build the website as well as .NET.
What is the team composition?
There were three or four people that worked on the project.
How did you come to work with Codista?
I found them by accident. Someone who was interested in hiring us told us that they had great developers on board who were doing some web scraping, and I thought it sounded interesting. I gave that company a call and talked about some technical stuff. I wanted to try them out first, which is why we did the internal pilot to see their capabilities.
How much have you invested in them?
We have spent over €500,000 (approximately $555,125 USD).
What is the status of this engagement?
We began the engagement with them in 2017, and the work is still ongoing.
