What was the scope of their involvement?
Once we began with Eton Digital, we tasked them with ridding the platform of the existing bugs left over from our previous developer. Their process of fixing and polishing took about six months. Once that work came to an end, we transitioned their team to focus on building features from scratch, primarily with Symfony.
The most prominent feature they’ve added to this point is a dashboard that offers user analytics for students and teachers. Our first panel did not function as we had hoped, so we presented Eton Digital with our original concepts of that feature. They fleshed out our ideas and took the dashboard through the design phase, and we ended up with a feature that works as we intended.
What is the team composition?
We work with a project manager, a few full stack-developers, some frontend and backend developers, some designers, and their QA team.
How did you come to work with Eton Digital?
I am unsure of how we initially found them—likely a search for UK-based agencies. We met them and felt comfortable with the team. They had the manpower we were looking for, and they seemed to have a professional approach. Eton Digital also billed themselves as specialists for education projects and Symfony-based projects.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent about £80,000 (approximately $104,400 USD).
What is the status of this engagement?
Our engagement began in July 2018 and remains ongoing. We’ve scaled back a little bit as of late as we dedicate resources and money elsewhere while we continue our growth strategy, but Eton Digital has been very accommodating as we’ve done so.
