What was the scope of their involvement?
They started out by working as the backend of our company by incorporating talented engineers to our team. Later on, we started offering services to our customers instead of just giving them a ready-made product, which included design and development. We’re the face that client’s see and Droid Technologies is the tech provider for our company.
We know how to find business, market ourselves, and how to create a lot of things, whereas Droid Technologies knows how to build them. Most of the time, we collaborate on the development of microcontrollers. The product we made was very easy to integrate, so we’re more focused on the integration of the components into a very small, tight design, which is their area of expertise. They know how to make small designs based on sensors, connectivity, microcontrollers, and power.
After that, they also developed it as a Windows application. Currently, they’re working on software electronics, Windows application development, and Linux development.
What is the team composition?
We’re up to 12 people now, and it became really hard to manage them all at the same time, so we decided to bring on a project manager to monitor the process. I’m in Israel and the team is scattered in three locations in Ukraine.
How did you come to work with Droid Technologies?
We tried a few companies in Ukraine, which were a big disaster. One couldn’t take on a long-term engagement and another wasn’t professional enough. A friend told me how Droid Technologies had talented engineers, so we tried one project and it was a success.
After that, we worked together more and eventually partnered. They’re pretty expensive for me, but the level of support I get from them is worth it.
How much have you invested with them?
We have invested over €200,000 (approximately $227,770 USD).
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in June 2017 and the collaboration is ongoing.
