What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
So we have a fully working product on one side, but have about 40% of the app is done, but are planning to add more features. They’re great at getting the product done quickly. We focused on access to the device, data, and management and tried to roll that out first.
How did DevsData LLC perform from a project management standpoint?
They’re very flexible. Overall, we have biweekly calls. Even though they’re in Eastern Europe, we have calls from my time. We categorize everything as either “task done” or “task not done.” Then we use Jira to manage issues.
What did you find most impressive about them?
The backend developers are some of the best I’ve ever worked with. I’ve worked with a lot of very well-qualified developers, so that is not a compliment I offer lightly. Their depth of knowledge and their ability to get things done quickly. They make great engineering decisions, which takes a lot of pressure off of our team. We can be confident that they’ll create the optimal solution.
The other side of that is that they’re familiar with Google’s platform, so that has saved costs. They also see themselves as an extension of our team, so they’re extremely flexible and helpful.
Are there any areas they could improve?
Not too much. Overall, they’re able to get everything done in a time-sensitive matter.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
I hired a firm beforehand to help with the UI /UX and determine what we really want to develop. It helped narrow down the scope of the project so we really knew what we were trying to do.
