How did you select this vendor?
A number of vendors pitched for the project. DevStack were chosen because of their previous track record of delivering work to time, quality and budget for Virtual College. They were also chosen for their approachability and readiness to go the extra mile in providing a tailored service, listening closely to Virtual College's needs.
Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.
DevStack developed the website on the Sitecore and uCommerce platforms. They integrated with external applications including the Braintree payment platform and the Enable learning management system. Following a discovery phase, they provided a detailed quote for the project along with a project timeline.
Following design, development and testing were done over a number of sprints that allowed us to see how the website was coming together and be reassured that DevStack's work was meeting specification and quality criteria. DevStack assisted our IT department as new infrastructure was set up and provided close support throughout the launch and in the weeks that followed.
What was the team composition?
The DevStack team worked closely with the Virtual College team on the website project. The overall team contained UX designers, back-end developers, testers, and digital marketers. There were also a number of stakeholders across the organisation, from senior management to sales, marketing and customer support.
