What was the scope of their involvement?
DeveloperTown is one of the 50 companies that are a part of our organization. They helped us with everything including the UI design, mobile accessibility, and user experience. They also showed us a new way to upload content that allows us to be an online community instead of just a resource repository.
At this point, we are awaiting the overall scope, budget, and timeline from them. When we agreed to do the design process with DeveloperTown, we had a shift in our budget that prevented us from starting the new development on the product. They are taking that shift into consideration and are working on a plan that will be more feasible for us to begin development next year.
How did you come to work with DeveloperTown?
We went through an RFP [request for proposal] process. Upon discovering DeveloperTown, we were won over by the whole team. They did a fantastic job on explaining how an investment in their technology services would be a paradigm shift for our organization. DeveloperTown really opened our eyes to the value of making such an investment, despite it seeming large at first. Their ongoing support has been really wonderful. They make us feel as if our success is just as important as theirs.
How much have you invested with DeveloperTown?
The project cost range is between $10,000 to $50,000. We were very skeptical about making that investment knowing we were going to have a much bigger number later. At the end of the day, if we can’t afford their processes, we can at least come up with an accommodation plan.
What is the status of this engagement?
Our engagement with DeveloperTown is ongoing. We started in February.
