The Review
Feedback summary: 

Working in two-week sprints, DevOctopus delivered functional demos at each check-in. They were involved in the project and even offered their own ideas to resolve challenges. The final MVP made it easier for the in-house team to track their artists' salary data.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Our company providing art outsource services for AAA game projects(Metro Exodus, Mafia 3, Farming Simulator 2019, Wreckfest). I'm CEO at Scythgames since 2014.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DevOctopus?

When we increased our artists amount - we've faced the problem with financial accounting, planning. Also accounting of vacations, sick days, day offs, and e t c. Employers accounting, reminders about employers salary review.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to make our financial management, and planning easier ,and faster. Also we wanted to have clear view of our employers work time, for better work planning.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We got a great review from our mutual business partner.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They developed our CRM system from scratch. We gave them our vision, and what result we want to receive. They made analytics based on requirements and create a plan of developing.

We decided what we wanna have in MVP version(only financial accounting), and start. We have demo each two weeks, also we were able to communicate and make changes when we need them.

What was the team composition?

At the start we had around 7 people on the project. When they developed MVP, we decreased team size to 3 people full time, and few were working part time.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Right now it’s a lot easier to manage our financial situation, create financial plans. Manage workers salaries, sick leaves, documents, add some notes about them. Have notifications about birthdays etc. Manage documents for each of them.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We had calls each two weeks, to watch what was developed. Planning at all was very good with real timelines, sometimes they could make things faster, and sometimes it could take more time. But we didn't have problems with deadlines. We communicated through Slack, Skype, e-mails, phone calls.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They developed our system like their own, the involvement was awesome, they discussed everything, and analyze, and propose their own ideas. It feels like each one of the team members was 100% involved.

Are there any areas for improvement?

It's hard to say. I think nothing from the main areas.
