Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?
It’s hard to share any statistics, but I was really pleased with their work. They understood our project and were quickly up to speed. I also liked that they tested the project really well in different browsers and on different devices, so there were only a few bugs. They were also quick to resolve those issues, and they were quite ahead on everything, so if there was something that wasn’t completely worked out, they mentioned it, they saw it, and they talked about it.
How did Fooz perform from a project management standpoint?
Michał was basically a project manager, because we spoke about the functionality within the screens and about how it should work and be intuitive for the user. I think only one frontend developer worked on it. Basically, the team was one project manager and one developer, so two in total.
We had a fixed-price deal for this project, but I think they worked a little bit more on the project than estimated upfront, and the delivery was on time. We didn't have a really sharp deadline, but they delivered the project when they said they would, and our feedback was implemented quickly too. Only a few days later they already had worked on the feedback as well. That was really nice.
Fooz works quite well from a project management standpoint. Michał was on holiday during the project, so he gave the project lead to a project manager called Anna. At first we didn’t have much communication, but when I contacted Anna about their timetable and schedule the communication was picked up. It was only a small project, so not much communication was needed, but the communication was good when certain screens were done or certain things were checked and we could review it ourselves.
We made all the wireframes for every page. We used a digital tracker for our feedback according to our own Agile scrum program that we use to develop. Mainly, we had wireframes and graphic impressions sent. At the beginning of the project, we had a small project documentation, and next to that we wrote down all of our feedback in the digital tracker, and they used the status to update us when things were ready.
What did you find most impressive about Fooz?
I think the commitment of Michał as a person is the most impressive thing about Fooz. They are not a very big company right now, but they are really involved with their clients. Even if the project is smaller, they try to adapt and get to know the client well. They’re not too business-like. They’re personal, and I like that because I think that if a company is a little personal with a project, the quality of the product and the communication are a lot better.
Are there any areas Fooz could improve?
I can’t think of any ways Fooz could improve right now. I liked everything. It was really nice.
