Feedback summary: 

The ongoing project is going well thus far, with the cooperation progressing smoothly and the team managing deadlines efficiently. They have a good approach to the development work, offering interesting solutions, and working flexibly.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We're a cyber security company. I'm a principal scientist.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire eTeam?

We needed frontend development for an AI-based video analysis software.

What were your goals for this project?

The software has to have an appealing interface using modern web-based technologies. It has to be easily ported to mobile devices. Some of its aspects are novel, including non-standard, not well-documented aspects of contemporary web development.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They'd been recommended to our CEO by a third party. We were looking for a partner capable of quickly developing the software we needed that could bring quality, professionalism, and a good price.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

They provided design and implementation for a web-based application frontend, displaying a large number of augmented video streams. In addition, it required a database, user management, and integration on the backend side. The deployment used docker, and the project skeleton provided a proof of concept through close cooperation with their engineers.

What was the team composition?

There was one permanent developer and a permanent project manager. We had regular daily standups to coordinate between our own engineers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

The project is still ongoing, but we're very pleased with the work and attitude from their team. Their project management guaranteed continued progress in case of delays in the backend development. For our business, this means that we can meet internal deadlines and deliver to our client on time.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project management is effective and we're pleased with the style. They identified bottlenecks and offered solutions, effectively using daily standups.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They're polite, friendly, and communicate professionally. They're very flexible, even with projects and approaches that are non-standard, such as more scientific-related context. They have a diversity of skills they can bring to a project.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

eTeam’s understanding of various technologies helps them accurately estimate deadlines and adapt to any changes that arose. Their consistent communication, responsiveness, and superior project management methodology justify the investment and make them a valuable partner.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the CEO of CIENCE, an outbound sales organization. We help high-performing sales teams find more prospects and partners.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with eTeam?

We originally needed some sophisticated technical help on several challenges. We're a technology and services business, but we don't have a big technical staff. We needed a vendor that could easily scale up and down on demand. The vendor also needed to be sophisticated enough to tackle our technical challenges.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

eTeam is our on-demand, outsourced technology team. We're likely to be doing something with them at any given point. The scope of the projects varies widely. We may have just one person spend a few hours monitoring a system. Other times, we may have several of their employees working directly with our team on large design or development projects.

We do a lot of data manipulation, either normalizing or standardizing large data sets. The off-the-shelf tools only get the job done part way. We use eTeam when we need to develop technical approaches to processing large lines of data. A lot of what we're trying to do is to automate connections between various platforms and tools (e.g., G Suite, HubSpot, and Salesforce). eTeam helps us to create custom connectors between the various systems in order to streamline our work.

What is the team composition?

We've worked with anywhere from just 1–2 people to 6–10 people, depending on the project.

How did you come to work with eTeam?

They were a recommendation from a mutual business contact. We decided to try them out on a project because good word-of-mouth matters a lot in this space.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $40,000, but it varies across the types of projects.

What is the status of this engagement?

The first engagement was about 18 months ago. At that time, I was in an advisory relationship with CIENCE. I joined as CEO about a year ago, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

eTeam is much better at accurately estimating budget, timeframe, and scope than most other vendors. While they don’t always hit their deadlines exactly, that's actually not the true measure of success in this space. It's almost impossible to accurately estimate those aspects of software projects. More importantly, they're quite good at working through changes as projects unfold. They excel at being nimble when changes during the development process change the scope. As our projects unfold, they do a great job of providing data points that help the company make good business decisions.

How did eTeam perform from a project management standpoint?

Their superior project management is one of the primary reasons that we continue to work with eTeam. Project management is one of the most difficult things to do in a remote setting. They really shine in terms of communication and making sure they always understand the project requirements. Their well-honed project management methodology is thoughtful and elegantly constructed.

They're willing to use whatever communications stack we prefer. Our primary mode of communication with them on projects is Slack. We also use Basecamp and Jira for some projects. They’re nimble enough to adapt to any tool and interact well across any platform.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their executives are especially thoughtful, articulate, and smart. I think of them as colleagues and friends. Beyond knowing how to project manage and how to lead a technology team, they’re humble. I really appreciate that they’re willing to admit when they don't have a good answer. I know I can rely on them to speak honestly. If I asked them if something is technically possible, they’re going to give me an answer based on their actual skills and not just them trying to make a sale.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I would like to see them develop content aimed at educating audiences about technology tools. There’s a gap in the market around what does or doesn’t work well in this space. It’s not a criticism, but a suggestion to invest time and energy into education.

I would personally benefit from them their knowledge about frameworks, toolsets, and development approaches. We’ve already learned a lot from that helps inform the way we think about overcoming our technical challenges. I’d like to see them create some great video and/or text content. I suspect a lot of their customers would also find it would useful.

Any advice for potential customers?

It’s not going to be a typical outsourced vendor relationship. The more you can integrate their team directly into your business, the more successful the engagement will be. Your team members that need to interact the most with them should have a direct connection to their team.

Feedback summary: 

The productivity skyrocketed from 4–5 to 175 websites built per year. Understanding the company’s needs and making proactive recommendations, they've exceeded all expectations and became an extension of an internal team.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm a product manager working with a digital technologies team at a financial services company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with eTeam?

We needed a company to help us develop microsites. eTeam worked with us on a smaller project previously, so we decided to expand their scope of work.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They build microsites for us to help us manage promotional transactions. The microsites integrate with multiple APIs within our own company or other companies we work with. They do a lot of custom development for individual websites that have a mobile focus. The websites are international and public facing. Additionally, they have built an enterprise level tool to allow us to quickly and easily spin up our own microsites.

What is the team composition?

We work with a product manager, who is our primary point of contact, a couple of engineers, a frontend developer, a part-time QA expert.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in November 2015 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They were helping us build individual websites when they saw an opportunity for us to use a new tool. After that, our business has been growing. When I first came on board, we were building 4–5 websites a year, the following year it was almost 80, and last year we built 175 websites. We use templates to create many websites on our own and they help us with custom development.

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

They're very flexible and responsive. We communicate with eTeam via email and use Smartsheet to manage our projects.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They've become an extension of our internal team and understand our needs and challenges exceptionally well.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I don't think so. I'm happy with them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Give them all the information upfront and let them come to you with solutions. They often have much better ideas than we do.

Feedback summary: 

The platform functions as planned, driving traffic to retail locations. Taking the project seriously, they developed a plan and followed it. Their transparency and commitment, coupled with their accessibility, make them a reliable development partner.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our company specializes in financial technology and I'm the director of financial services. 

 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with eTeam?

We wanted to set up a platform to run our business, so we were looking for a company to help us with that.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They did everything from product ads to testing and launching. We have a program by which our customers receive barcodes that help them pay bills. Customers can make payments to our network retailers or fund online accounts just by using a barcode – so they don't have to stand in line or fill out the information manually. We worked collaboratively with eTeam to develop the wireframes and then they helped us with all the technical elements of the transaction. 

What is the team composition? 

We have a project manager and we work with one of their cofounders. They have a fairly substantial team that is always willing to help out.

How did you come to work with them?

Our company had an existing relationship with them, so it was natural for us to choose them for this project. They haven't let us down.

What is the status of this engagement? 

We started working with them in early 2016 and the relationship is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The platform helps drive traffic to our retail locations. We're tracking the uptime, which has been very high, as well as the transactions and the dollar volume. They took the project seriously, making themselves available when needed.

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

They put together a plan and followed it, meeting the timelines that they had set. They're very transparent and update us regularly on the progress of the project. If something comes up, we're always able to get in touch with the right people and address the issue immediately.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They stand behind what they produce and truly believe in what they do. Also, they're flexible and understanding when things change.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can't think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Talk to their cofounders about your project. They're a pleasure to deal with and always give us the level of attention that we need.
