What was the scope of their involvement?
Devato rebuilt our WordPress website using HTML5 and PHP. They changed our website’s host to Amazon S3, created an import-export feature using SharePoint, and designed our email system. The site is now mobile-friendly and cloud-based.
Their team also digitized our pay stub process. We previously sent out 2,000–3,000 pay stubs over email every week to over 10,000 managed employees. Devato created an ingenious method using Rackspace and Postmark. It captured each pay stub PDF file and extracted information such as the pay period, name, and account number. This data—along with T4 documents and employment records—is now stored in an internal database that employees can access at any time. Devato created the database using Heroku and Ruby on Rails.
What is the team composition?
I only work with the main person, Troy (CEO, Devato).
How did you come to work with Devato?
I found Devato through a website and noticed they were located close to where I work. I reached out for more information, and it’s easy to drive to their office whenever I need more clarification.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent over $100,000–$120,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in October 2013, and the collaboration is ongoing.
