What was the scope of their involvement?
Enterwell developed a frontend solution for SIM card and number management. As a telecommunications company, this is one of our main services.
They used React.js on the frontend. They integrated it with our systems using different APIs, including RESTful, XML, and even Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) in some cases to connect to our databases.
In the beginning, we gave Enterwell a background of the product we needed. First, we engaged them in a smaller part of the project to see how they would work and respond to our requests.
They proved to be in alignment with our requirements, and we started development after that. We gave them tasks in small pieces, which made up the whole product in the end. We followed an agile approach, with sprints lasting a couple of weeks or so.
Enterwell was open to any extensions, so the whole product was built in a manner that would allow for creating those. Our plan is to use their product for other functionalities (e.g. managing our inventory).
What is the team composition?
We worked with Enterwell as a joint team, meaning there were developers from both sides. The team usually consisted of five people depending on the current sprint. We’ve worked in an agile way, so we led the project from our side.
They had a role akin to a scrum master on their side, namely the lead developer. This developer received requests from our side, translated them, and organized things on their side. They also had some junior developers, and they involved a designer at one point, who made wireframes for the GUI.
How did you come to work with Enterwell?
I got a recommendation from a couple of people who knew them from previous projects. We needed a young team that could deliver results fast and could work in an agile way (with a lot of changes).
After they were introduced to us, we had an interview with them where we presented our requests. They were very familiar with the topic, and we recognized that right away, so we decided to start working with them.
How much have you invested with them?
The total investment so far is close to $70,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with Enterwell in October 2018, and we finished the project in September 2019.
