Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?
In order to be objective in this matter, I would have to be an experienced applications developer. This was my first endeavor, and so far, I can say that Fingers has been open to every suggestion I've had. I had a say in everything done so far, and Fingers gave me feedback on every detail, from the logo, color format, and what key-phrases we used. IT was a mutual development collaboration. As an example, the application ties to geographical maps, so we considered what solution should be used for this: either making our own, or tying the app to Google Maps. Fingers has a very creative designer who provided insights for my customer needs.
How did Fingers perform from a project management standpoint?
I'm a demanding person, but I do tend to cut people some slack. I can't therefore say if I've gotten as much as I could for my money. Also, compared to the US, the European development market is less competitive. I went by a price/quality ratio, and in this sense, I was satisfied with Fingers. Their management addressed my questions thoroughly.
What distinguishes Fingers from other providers?
Fingers has a team of key players. Everyone was constantly involved during our presentations, and there is mutual respect between their management and engineers. I didn't find any issues, which was nice to see.
Is there anything Fingers could have improved or done differently?
I can't think of anything.
Do you have any recommendations for others considering working with Fingers?
I have received an outline of the work done so far by Fingers, including plusses and minuses for the collaboration. The negative issues had to do with timing and cultural differences between our groups, which is something other clients should consider.
