BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CEO of Conservation Diver, a coral reef research, protection, and restoration training and certifications organization

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Equinox IS, and what were your goals?

We had a database made for us in 2015 using Ruby on Rails, that firm dissolved and left us with a product that was unusable. after trying several other freelancers, we hired equinox to transfer that database into Java, create a more useful/friendly UI, recover 14 years worth of back data, and create and excel export function with various reports.

SOLUTION

How did you select Equinox IS and what were the deciding factors?

After two other freelancers we hired fell short (costing us more than $2,000 USD and 8 months of time) we started to lose hope.

In an act of desperation, I posted to a marine biology group on facebook concerning the problems we were having and was contacted by Daniel P. He said he could help, and after talking with him on the phone I realized he was perfect for the job.

He put my mind at ease, understood what the other freelancers did not, realized our goals, and got us to them.

Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and technologies used.

We started with a Ruby on Rails database that we recovered after the first firm dissolved, which was hosted on Heroku and unusable. Equinox did the following to get us where we needed to be:

  1. Restrcuture Heroku account to be applicable for our needs
  2. Convert the entire database app/UI to Java
  3. Rebuild the app on Heroku
  4. Modify data entry and various meta-data parameters to be functional
  5. Do a Database bump from the old database, merge all existing data into the new app
  6. Create several excel export report functions so that we can easily view and share data visualizations
  7. Advise us on how to proceed next

How many people from the vendor's team worked with you, and what were their positions?

1, Daniel P.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any measurable outcomes of the project or general feedback about the deliverables?

The project was completed to our specifications in a reasonable amount of time. We now have a functioning database for our 14 years of ecological monitoring surveys that is usable to our teams on the ground.

Describe their project management style, including communication tools and timelines.

Daniel was very direct with questions, replied to Emails quickly, was always willing to have a call to ensure understanding, and did they background research necessary to understand our unique underwater survey system.

What did you find most impressive or unique about this company?

easy to work with, fast results, very professiional, did everything they said they could, and more.

Are there any areas for improvement or something they could have done differently?

no, they did a great job. I will be using them again
