Portfolio

Smart Meter IoT (Internet of Things) Application

 

Evenset has created a cloud application that connects energy measuring devices to a central server to allow remote access and monitoring. The smart meter platform is a web application that can analyze data with the click of a button and can help building managers make smarter decisions about their energy usage.

This custom smart meter IoT application processes the signals received from 10,000 meters, measures power consumption, visualizes more than 50 parameters, manages facility and meter locations, alert system, big data forward, download, and more. Smart-meter is a feature-rich application that can import and analyze data from all connected devices. A hybrid of database and backend solutions are used to handle the huge load of input data and heavy on-demand measurements of the data.

Raly

Evenset joined forces with Raly to build a mobile application for both iOS and Android. Raly is a financial technology company in the payments industry. The solution allows people to send money to one another, or to collect money from friends or family. In the near future, it will allow people to pay businesses as well through the same type of technology.

We used React-Native to build the mobile application which provides a seamless experience across platforms.

MedEssistant

Not all the patients understand the importance of medication adherence. Also, not all the patients remember to order their refills and prescription on time especially busy adults or those who have too many medications to order every month. MedEssistant was developed based on patients' needs and preferences. The app captures prescriptions, sends it to the pharmacy, sends push notifications and reminders when it's time to take their meds. 

The design layout of MedEssistant is clean and visually pleasing. Having the target group of users in mind, our team made the structure of the app straightforward and easy to navigate. 

ToothShading App

ToothShading is an application built to make the tooth shading process easier and more accurate for the dentists. Our design team worked along with our developers to build a modern and user friendly application to help dentists pick the right color, send the information to the labs and take care of the payments.

In the color detection part, we are using image processing algorithms to detect the true color, considering the lighting conditions and different camera options. With an accuracy of close to 90%, this is the first application of its type.

We are using React Native to build this mobile app for both iOS and Android.

We developed a backend administrative dashboard web application for Raly, an innovative fintech startup. Evenset took over the project from an internal team and delivered the final product addressing all the requirements quickly and efficiently, making the experience a smooth transition for Raly’s in-house team and its management. For this project, we used ReactJS to builed a responsive administrative dashboard.

Web Application - Team Collaboration Tool for Geologists

Evenset joined forces on the development of a web application that functions as a platform for geologists to collaborate on. This online team collaboration tool allows them to share and study seismic data. Users can log into the platform and work on the uploaded data live, in a fashion which is very similar to Google Docs. They can drag, zoom, annotate and run calculations on the data, with other collaborators being able to observe the changes live. The web application also offers a messaging/commenting functionality, allowing geologists to comment on any instances of data, with the rest of the team able to reply to those comments.

Technologies utilized for this project include Amazon's DynamoDB, NodeJS and ReactJS.

Web Application for International Workshop

A website was designed and created for the International Workshop on Applied Probability. It efficiently processed hundreds of application forms, accepted payments, and facilitated academic abstract submissions. Evenset developed a web application that allowed users to log in to register, pay the fees, submit their abstract, obtain information about the workshop program, accommodation, and special events.

Skylight - Home Renovation Management Application

Skylight is a web application built to add visibility and efficiency to home renovation projects. Our team of developers built a steady user interface that can manage all aspects of home renovation, including tracking the budget, monitoring progress, processing payments, organizing documents, recording communications, and more. Homeowners can define payment schedules tied to milestones in the project, and they can pay contractors right from the application. All communication, including text messages, voice memos, photos, videos, documents, and invoices are recorded and archived on the cloud for future reference.

Sensassure - Smart Elder Care Wearable Device

 

Sesassure "takes the guesswork out of incontinence care" through enabling nursing home caregivers to "monitor the status of each resident on a mobile device, allowing them to provide tailored and immediate care."

Evenset has built a cloud platform consisting of a web and mobile application for this product. Sensors on the adult briefs measure the wetness and send signals to a main server. The server processes the data and sends appropriate instruction to the mobile and web application. The application notifies the caregivers of the resident’s status and whether the brief needs to be checked or changed. The software can be set up to manage multiple facilities and includes a management portal. It also tracks caregivers' response times to improve quality of care and encourage efficient service in nursing homes.

Feedback summary: 

Developers from Evenset Inc. have developed top-notch code and are continually discovering old bugs that were hampering performance. Their project management allows for regular, streamlined communication, and they instituted an effortless collaboration with internal development resources.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the director of development at Equibit Group. We’re a peer-to-peer equity and debt marketplace powered by decentralized blockchain technology.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Evenset Inc.?

We were expanding fast and needed help developing and project managing one of our web applications.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The web app is made up of a user interface connected to our core system. In their browsers, users can create accounts and make queries, which are filled from our core infrastructure via our backend engine.

Evenset Inc. works on the front- and backend and assisted our development team in building the knowledge base we wanted. They're helping us polish off features and working mostly with JavaScript, Cannon.js, and Node.js. They also contribute to project management efforts and support us in setting up test cases.

What is the team composition?

Though we’re only working with one developer and a project manager, now, we’ve worked with up to three full-time developers.

How did you come to work with Evenset Inc.?

Their CTO and I were colleagues at a previous company, so I knew that she was reasonable and understood the depth of her expertise. 

At the time, we were working with a couple of other companies, but we gradually phased them out. We wanted to work alongside Evenset Inc. because they were local, highly responsive, and had good-quality developers.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since May 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Though the app hasn’t launched yet, we’re happy with their great developers and high-level code. They’ve helped us identify and fix bugs created by old developers that we didn’t even know existed, which continually improves our quality.

How did Evenset Inc. perform from a project management standpoint?

I coordinated with a single person on their side. They delivered on time and budget, and we communicated every other day. We used a scrum methodology with two-week sprints and had five standups every two weeks. They integrated well with our development team.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Bringing them on and starting the work was incredibly easy. Their quality is on par with that of our in-house developers, so we’re quite happy.

Are there any areas they could improve?

If we’d wanted to expand to 10 developers (which we didn’t need), I don’t believe they’d have been able to accomplish that.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If you show them everything you have and need, they’ll take it on and run with it.

Feedback summary: 

The app launched and the internal team loves its look and feel. Evenset met all expectations and used their own expertise and ideas to bring the app to the next level, while their ability to listen and deliver on time earned them favorable referrals.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the owner of a dental practice.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Evenset?

We were looking for a company to help us design and develop a tooth shading app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built a mobile application for iOS and Android. After a period of research, we came up with a plan on how to develop the app and then, they got down to work.

The app uses a smartphone camera and the algorithm that we designed to calculate the shade of a tooth. We found a way to calibrate it to everyone's lighting, so it takes about 30 seconds for the app to produce the results, and they're quite accurate.

What is the team composition?

I worked directly with three developers.

How did you come to work with them?

I found them online when I was searching for app developers in the Toronto area. I wanted to find a company that was small enough to pay special attention to us.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between $10,000 - $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in October 2017 and the app launched in June 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They delivered a top-notch product. The app turned out better than I thought it would be and it looks very professional. They listened to everything I told them and did exactly what I was asking, enhancing the app with their own ideas. 

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated every week. They responded to my emails right away and explained everything when things got too technical for me.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They're punctual and have a great attention to detail. We haven't experienced any delays.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. They did a great job.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They're trustworthy. I'd definitely recommend them.

The app is receiving quality reviews. Evenset’s background in privacy settings and building healthcare products was evident throughout, resulting in a satisfactory platform delivered on schedule.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder of a mobile startup called MedEssist, which provides products and services that help users manage their healthcare.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Evenset Inc.?

We had a design in mind but needed outside assistance for Android software development.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to build our MVP and stay within our budget.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Evenset demonstrated a background in building healthcare products. Their knowledge regarding privacy and security requirements when working with health records (i.e. HIPPA) was a valuable asset.

Describe the project in detail.

Evenset took our initial design and refined and polished the look of the project, including the design of a new logo.

What was the team composition?

The CEO was our main contact point. He provided regular updates on all aspects of the app.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The final product is showing well and is receiving generous feedback. Evenset completed the project on time and at the level of quality we expected.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Our communication with the CEO occurred mainly through email and Google documents. All of our feedback was heard and addressed throughout the project. We look forward to working with them again soon.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Evenset implemented a feature into our app that we had not previously considered. They put great effort into ensuring it worked flawlessly.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There was one instance of miscommunication regarding a specific feature, but that was largely due to how much time had passed since the planning stages. Evenset rectified the situation and still delivered on time.

The dashboard performs well, and any bugs that appeared were quickly managed. Evenset develops with an impressive attention to detail; they challenge customers to deliver high-quality outputs. Evenset was also noted for their ability to avoid micromanagement with their project management services.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder of Raly. We are a financial technology company in the payments industry. We allow people to send money from one another, or to collect money from friends or family. Hopefully in the near future, it will allow people to pay business as well through the same type of app.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Evenset Inc?

We had too many projects in the pipeline, and not enough resources to allocate, especially when it came to finding time to hire the right people to work on these projects which are ideal to be outsourced to the nearest facility around us. We needed someone that would be able to take over the project, understand where we are coming from, what we need, and be able to deliver it in a very timely matter as we have time constraints. We wanted to avoid the process of going through recruiting, hiring, and everything else that goes into it. It is a very competitive market, and we have to experiment a lot to get the right results.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Evenset is a development partner of ours. They are one of the only companies we work with when it comes to developing for micro projects. We wanted to do backend administration for the system, which would give our call center and administrators within the company access to the flow of data to be able to provide proper customer service, as well as for our other departments to be able to create queries and dashboards of the analytics part. Unfortunately, it was taking up too much of our time, and the limited resources that we had meant that we either had to spend time on the administrative dashboard development, or spend time on the actual engineering challenges. Ultimately, we decided to outsource the administrative dashboard to accompany.

When we started working with Evenset, we knew exactly what we wanted for this web application, and provided them with clear definitions of what we were trying to do, the areas we were lacking in and needed help in, and what the end result was that we expected at the end of the day. They completed the development using React in JavaScript, and the database model is a PostgreSQL database. It is a Node.js server, and everything was built in that framework. Every once in a while, we would get updates as to what had been done. We would then be able to review and provide feedback.

The technology is still relatively new. Even finding the right people that are familiar with the framework and are able to create the web application and have a successful project, is one of the reasons we wanted to work with a development shop. For us, to spend time trying to find the experts is very time consuming, especially when it comes to specialized frameworks like React, or Reactive Native; which are newer framework and newer technology. There is not a whole lot of expert talent out there yet.  

We weren’t asking them to be creative, the challenge of this particular project, was that we had kickstarted the project on our own, and our team had been working on the tech stack of the web application for the administrative dashboard. Once we knew we wanted to hand over the project, we had a conversation about whether we should start from scratch, or continue building on top of what we had already built, which was 20%—30% done at the time. When we had a conversation with Evenset, they had reviewed everything and said that for the sake of time, it would be best to develop on top of the existing tech stack. This was a great decision for us as it meant that we did not waste too much of our developer resources building something that ultimately gets thrown away.

What is the team dynamic?

We mainly worked with the project manager; however, I am unsure how many people in total worked on the project. We had a point of contact who kept up with our demands, documented everything and managed the project and milestones.

How did you come to work with Evenset Inc?

Evenset were referred to us by another company who had commissioned them for a project. At that time, we had interviewed a whole bunch of people; from freelancers to another dev shop. One of things we liked about Evenset was the fact that they had delivered finished projects in the time they promised to do it, and the quality was great. Evenset checked off on the list of criteria we were looking for. This was the most important part, as you want to work with a company that is able to meet the deadlines, as well as deliver the project.

Some dev shops either go by hourly fee, or try to lowball the deadline to make the offer very attractive. At the end of the day, you think it will be completed in 2 months, but it ends up taking 6 months. That would really hurt our type of business; we need everything to be more predictable.

A lot of our concerns were wiped out with Evenset, and the part that we cared about the most was whether they understood what we were trying to accomplish with this project, and if they would understand what we had already built. The most challenging thing in finding the right provider for us was the technology stack because it was React, as it was still relatively new last year. Out of 100 developers that work on different technologies, there were maybe 2 or 3 that had enough experience with React to be able to do the project we wanted to do. The fact they had already done projects in that framework provided us with a sense of relief.

How much have you invested in them?

We have spent just under $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Evenset in October 2016, and this project took about 6 weeks. We have a lot more projects ongoing with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The basics of this project are still running in the production, and we haven’t had much of an issue. We have gone back and forth, and bugs have come up here and there, but they have been addressed pretty quickly. We are building a much bigger system now that will sit behind, and it is going to play an even more significant role. The great thing about the tech stack is that it is evolutionary. As the new version that comes out, the platform and the framework itself improves. We can easily update and get the benefits from the latest features.

We have projects that are ongoing with Evenset, such as mobile app development, and another web application. By the time these other projects finish, we will have to revisit the initial administrative project to try to expand it to match the new features and functionalities that we are adding to the system.

How did Evenset Inc perform from a project management standpoint?

At the beginning, we spoke with our main point of contact daily because they had a lot of questions. Towards the end of the project, we met at the final milestone. There was enough trust built that the communication was minimal, maybe 2 or 3 times a week. We used Jira, but everything was milestone sprint based on a bi-weekly basis. Within that, we organized the project tasks, all the deliverables, as well as the testing and quality assurance and security assurances in the payment business; everything gets checked out.

Their project management is actually one of the reasons we continue to work with them. For us, interacting with the end developers is extremely challenging, even if those developers are great in both task and time management. You always need a technical project manager that not only understands their own team, but also understands the client’s needs as well. One of the reasons we want to work with Evenset continuously on these other projects was exactly for that reason. Their project management is actually helping us coordinate our own internal team with their team, which is unusual.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The most impressive thing about them is their attention to detail. They sometimes challenge us to make sure everything we are doing is on a high-quality level. The project management services that they offer, and the fact we don’t have to worry about oversight; there is no micromanaging involved, are also impressive.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It is a tough business, so for what they are doing with the resources they have, it is impressive on its own.

Do you have any advice for potential clients of Evenset?

My advice to someone potentially working with Evenset, is that you can try them out with a small project to get a feel for it. They are a good development shop to partner up with. I know there are several Silicon Valley companies with minimal funding that come to Canada to hire developers, because the pricing is far better than they can find in San Francisco. Evenset is working with those start-ups to create prototypes that end up raising millions of dollars. The end products they produce as well as the quality they put in helps start-ups. Even established businesses, instead of spending time and resources trying to figure out who to hire, and make sure those hires do the best job they can. They should actually work with these dev shops until they know they can fully transition to internal departments. I am personally not in a rush to hire anyone internally because I have a good partner that does everything I want to do without inducing any risk on me. Once I hire, I am committed to hiring, and have to fulfil a certain responsibility. Whereas with these dev shops, they are a great partner to have. They are capable, the people there are experts in their domain, they are constantly getting exposed to new technologies and new ideas, and you can’t get that when you hire.

Before even trying to put together a technical department, I recommend hiring dev shops like Evenset. The most important thing is how they organize the project, keep track of progressions, and how they push to deliver a deadline. If their track record is always late, they are not a company to work with.

The final product was easy to navigate, provided rich information for attendees, and sparked interest in the conference. Evenset impressed with their proactive communication and flexible management. Their resourceful, creative professionalism made them a perfect fit for academic projects.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am a professor at a higher learning institution.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Evenset Inc.?

I was the local chair for an international conference, and we needed a website that was independent of the institution’s website and outside of my domain.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I had an initial discovery meeting with Hesam [CEO and co-founder], he suggested ways we could organize the website. He created a fee schedule so that we knew what to expect, which allowed us to help plan our budget as well. He managed the content throughout the site. It was an ongoing effort over the duration of the collaboration posting our information on the website, and also the information that I gathered from conference participants. I also created the schedule for the presentations, and Hesam updated the schedule with changes. He received documents from me, put them in the right format, and then up on the website. The website was built from scratch, and they helped to manage the website for the entire event.

People needed to submit abstracts for what they wanted to present in the conference. I was able to go into the system to see what was submitted and what needed to be revised. For the submission of abstracts, people also needed to register for the conference. The two were connected, which was good to ensure that people were registered when they submitted the abstract. Hesam was able to make both available, and I was able to see what was there during the time just before the conference.

Managing the registration was a big task, as there are people from different countries who had different ways of submitting the information and make the payment, but this was something that Hesam was able to help with.

We had one gala dinner event, the social event for this conference. Hesam posted several nice photos of the venue. He created the image on the website as well, which was solely his design with no input from me. Evenset suggested appropriate photos and videos and were resourceful in finding this information and creating images that suited the site and targeted our audience.

What is the team dynamic?

We were only in contact with Hesam. I met his team, but all communication went through him, and he was very responsive.

How did you come to work with Evenset Inc.?

My assistant had contacted two or three other firms, but Hesam was the most knowledgeable and understanding of our needs. He was the best choice for us because he understood what our event was all about. As a former student, he knew what we were looking for, so it was easier to ask him to create this work as something that he was already a part of. We felt the fee structure he suggested was reasonable and close to our budget, which was also important for us.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in October 2015, and the project was completed in June 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The website helped with a number of things. Participants were able to find the information they needed on the website from anywhere in the world. Many attendees wanted to know what was being provided, and the website was very helpful for people to gather up-to-date information. The website helped to bring interest for people to attend as an observer as well, and not just as a presenter.

As an independent vendor, Hesam was very helpful with this project. We were able to create something that was not restricted to what the institution would allow us to do.

How did Evenset Inc. perform from a project management standpoint?

Hesam is very responsive. Whenever we needed something, even though they were really busy, they would try to meet the deadline. He prioritized our needs according to what we considered urgent and accommodated whatever we needed to get done. He is very good at responding to that type of request.

What did you find most impressive about them?

If anyone asks for a recommendation of a company that can design a customized website, Evenset is the group to go to. They did all the research to find nice stock photos and videos that related to the event and attracted people’s interest, and I found this very useful. They provided exactly the help I was hoping for from a web developer. They go over and above what people want and bring creativity to the project. They are unique and have an innovative approach to bring attention to people navigating the website.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not that I can think of. They were really helpful, and I think they will do very well. They are an excellent choice for clients who are looking especially for more of an academic type of website.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a manufacturing company. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Evenset?

We were looking to develop a software solution.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They work with us to define the requirements of what we’re looking for in data collection, storage, user management, and analysis. 

What is the team dynamic?

Our contact was Hesam [Founder, Evenset]. He understands the requirements and breaks down the development process to his 3-person team.

How did you come to work with Evenset?

We worked with another software development firm prior to working with them. We also looked at 2 other companies but chose Evenset because they had experience working on a similar application. It was easy to make the choice based on their past work.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in May 2017. The first phase is complete and we’ll continue to use them for all the phases of this product.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Even though we recently released the product, I think it’s still early as it has a long cycle until it actually ramps up but it has gotten good feedback from users thus far. Their coder is very professional and has the necessary experience to understand what we’re looking for. There’s a lot of industrial knowledge that goes into the product’s design, and Evenset has been able to handle it. We’re happy with their service.

How did Evenset perform from a project management standpoint?

Compared with other companies that we work with, they’re above average. They’ve delivered on time and on budget while meeting our testing requirements. We exchanged the specification documents in person before each sprint.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their willingness to adapt to our changes and requirements has been impressive, as well as their speed and effective implementation method. They’ve also been flexible to make changes to the scope.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. We’re satisfied with their service but will see if the development was solid as we expect further down the road.

Do you have any advice for potential clients?

Be clear on your requirements and make change decisions as early as possible.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Deadlines have been met, and communication has been great. The work has been high quality, and Evenset has been able to adjust to scope changes throughout the engagement.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Skylight Tools is an online tool for homeowners working on major renovation projects. We are a pre-funding-stage startup. I am one of the founders of the company and run all product management.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Evenset Inc.?

We needed to build a working prototype for fundraising, as well as for attracting real customers.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Evenset has built our website from scratch using the Django Python framework. The platform allows homeowners, architects, and collaborators to communicate online, upload photos, create milestones, create payment schedules, and so on. It also has payment functionalities, working with third-party APIs. It's a frontend-heavy solution, but it also has database complexity.

How did you come to work with Evenset Inc.?

I believe that I found Evenset through a web search. We were specifically looking for companies in Toronto.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Evenset in July 2016. We have an ongoing relationship.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Evenset is great at meeting deadlines and communicating requirements and suggestions for our work. The quality has been high. 

How did Evenset Inc. perform from a project management standpoint?

Evenset is strong regarding project management and communication. The team is detail-oriented, which is also true for me. We've been able to interface well, tracking lists of issues. Whenever Evenset committed to a deadline, they did everything possible to meet it. Not everything was on-time, but the performance has been above other developers we've used.

What did you find most impressive about Evenset Inc.?

We've changed directions, as startups tend to do, and Evenset has been agile in conforming to us.

Are there any areas Evenset Inc. could improve?

More documentation would be helpful.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The quality of the work met expectations and the project was delivered within deadlines. Evenset aligned with the vision of the project and cared about its success. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We provide a software product tailored to nursing homes, consisting of a wearable sensor that notifies caregivers.

I was the chief technology officer of the company. After the company was sold, I became the head of the technology development. The key function of my position was to ensure that we did development properly.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Evenset?

We needed to develop our server-side coding infrastructure.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Evenset built our Django backend server infrastructure, as well as the iOS caregiver notification interface using ReactJS. The system is hosted on Amazon Web Services, and we have also used Amazon RDS and DynamoDB. Evenset is responsible for provisioning and managing the entire service.

How did you come to work with Evenset?

We were initially going to hire someone full time, but Evenset responded to our post. We saw them as a good fit and went on from there.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Evenset 11 months ago. We are about to begin another iteration of the product development, and will likely work with Evenset again. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

For our purposes, the quality was fine. We ran our own tests on Evenset's deliverables, on top of their own tests. We found the process to work well. 

How did Evenset perform from a project management standpoint?

We were never significantly delayed on anything, which was pleasant, but Evenset always finished the work immediately before deadlines. Working in software, I have gotten used to tolerating delays, so Evenset's ability to make estimates was surprising. It was a combination of splitting things into small segments and having a collaborative test procedure.

What did you find most impressive about Evenset?

We've appreciated how much Evenset cared about the product. They were aligned with our vision, which was the main reason for wanting to hire an internal resource. We wanted to find someone who believed in our mission and wanted to see it become a reality.

Are there any areas Evenset could improve?

The main area for improvement comes from the fact that medical devices require more rigorous testing than what Evenset was used to. The overall development process needed to be mainly driven by us, in terms of documentation and decisions on architecture. We've needed to make sure that all checkpoints were met. 

4.5
Overall Score The collaboration was good in general, with the only drawback being around documentation and test procedures.
  • 4.5 Scheduling
    ON TIME / DEADLINES
    Evenset stuck to the schedule, but there were occasions when the deliverables didn't pass the test procedures, which meant that we had to go back.
  • 5.0 Cost
    Value / within estimates
    Evenset is a cost-effective solution. We've had a fixed price for the bulk of the work, but when we had hourly tasks, Evenset came in under estimates.
  • 4.5 Quality
    Service & deliverables
    Everything was delivered as expected, for the most part, with a couple of occasions when we needed to make changes.
