What was the scope of their involvement?
The type of development work that we do is limited to marketing websites. This was our first attempt at a technology build of this magnitude. Our internal team managed the design while datarockets coordinated the development. In choosing datarockets, we selected a company based on its skill set, but we also relied on their team to consult us as we traversed this project.
They used React Redux to build the platform, which serves as a tool to collect individual and team performance data. For example, we’re able to track the quality of sleep and how it changes for each person based on a number of factors—including caffeine intake and whether or not somebody has napped or meditated. It allows us to examine and maximize team performance.
What is the team composition?
We worked with Pavel (CEO, datarockets) and the rest of his team.
How did you come to work with datarockets?
Another business owner referred them to me. We had collaborative introductory conversations. I felt confident that they could sufficiently guide us through the project.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent in the range of $50,000–$200,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We have the project on hold as we evaluate growth opportunities and our business model. Our engagement began in January 2017, and our last sprint was in July 2018. As our team grows and we develop a more refined budget, we will resume working with datarockets.
