What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
We released our MVP in March 2019. There was a trust issue in the technology vertical of our company with the other business units, but we have probably the strongest relationship with Devetry out of our stakeholders, which promotes trust.
Overall, they ask really good questions. They’re trying to learn and understand everything. I can really rely on them.
How did Devetry perform from a project management standpoint?
They participate in all of our standups and we do sprint planning with them. They’re extremely flexible. If something changes, they’re willing to change with us.
It’s a really good relationship, and they lead by example. They’ve become the glue for all the resources as they’re great communicators. We lacked that internally, and they ended up being the leader of the technical side of things. Our team really looks up to them and reaches out to them. They even help design and architect other projects outside their core scope of work.
What did you find most impressive about them?
They’re just great people and are extremely open and flexible. Their CEO is great and asked if we felt we were at the point in our relationship where they can provide candid feedback. They care a lot and aren’t just there to build the technology. They’re there to be a part of the entire strategy.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No. I’ve worked with a lot of outsourced development resources and Devetry is lightyears ahead of them.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Let them provide their expertise. Be open, flexible, and have transparent communication with them. If you do, you’ll get the best value.
