What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
Flexdev rebuilt our database and messaging structures into scalable systems. They also helped me design the frontend interface while their developers worked on the backend. Now that the backend is complete, they’re still working with us to polish the UI/UX. Everything they’ve delivered thus far has been exceptional.
How did Flexdev perform from a project management standpoint?
Justin keeps his developers motivated to work hard without burning out. Each resource has the adaptability and natural skill needed to succeed. They’re also proactive communicators, so that’s helpful. We share a Trello board I can use to track their progress. They also use Slack internally.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Other firms I’ve hired in the past stick to the initial scope of work religiously. While that may sound good at first, that ideology can cause a lot of headaches when things inevitably go awry.
Flexdev is flexible when it comes to providing viable solutions. Since the team consists entirely of senior-level developers, they can easily fix minor issues without consultation.
They’re also able to internalize design concepts and project requirement quickly. Once we started explaining the kinds of features we wanted, they already understood what we were going for. Their depth of understanding demonstrated a willingness to embrace our creative vision and treat our project as if it was their own. Their open-mindedness makes communication much easier.
Are there any areas they could improve?
I’d appreciate more frequent communication. They perform well in this area, but I’m not opposed to being even more involved with the project. That’s only a minor criticism.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Provide Flexdev with basic wireframes, an understanding of the market, and a vision for the final product. They can handle everything from there.
