The Review
Feedback summary: 

The client is most pleased with the value of Forte Group's services compared to the cost. What their resources lack in experience is more than compensated for by their talent and proactive approach to problem solving.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

‎ParkNav is a street parking service. I am the chief technology officer of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Forte Group?

We needed to find iOS and Android developers.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Forte Group offered development resources. We worked directly with the individual developers on a remote basis. They ranged in number, but we've used up to 2 developers for each platform respectively.

How did you come to work with Forte Group?

I met Forte Group at a tech conference. They had reasonable prices, so we went from there.

How much have you invested with Forte Group?

The cost of Forte Group's services was between $20,000 and $30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Forte Group 2 years ago.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Forte Group was our primary developer for most of the iOS and Android work. We were able to release our apps, and we're happy with the results.

How did Forte Group perform from a project management standpoint?

Forte Group's resources became embedded in our existing processes, with the exception that they were remote.

What did you find most impressive about Forte Group?

Overall, Forte Group has a smart team. They were able to understand our requests without a lot of back-and-forths.

Are there any areas Forte Group could improve?

Not specifically. The developers we've used are just out of college, so there's much that they can learn, but they're overall smart people. Forte Group gave us great value for our money.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The client is impressed with the resources provided by Forte Group. Forte Group has been able to deliver well-suited resources on short notice and the client feels a true sense of partnership.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are an IT organization providing software solutions to the haircare, cosmetics and beauty industries. I am the director of quality assurance and process implementation for the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Forte Group?

Forte Group is currently providing us with internship opportunities. We are presented with the best-and-brightest candidates that can help us establish software quality assurance best practices and finalize our deliverables.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We onboard a large number of interns every 6 weeks, around 6-10 people. So far, Forte Group has done a good job with the provisioning of well-qualified candidates. We have hired at least 2 people in total through this program. We will most likely be hiring at least 2 more before the end of the year.

How did you come to work with Forte Group?

I'd worked with Forte Group in the past, for other firms. The choice was based on my experience with the company.

How much have you invested with Forte Group?

I am not at liberty to disclose that information.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Forte Group 9 months ago.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

On the consultant side, we have been very fortunate to work with our contact from Forte Group. She is knowledgeable, with a good understanding of business processes and market demands of small-to-medium-sized organizations, as well as large ones. I've had experience working with Forte Group during my work for both types of organizations.

Forte Group has produced some very well-qualified candidates for us, who can hit the ground running and, with minimal training can achieve the goals and objectives of our IT organization. I hold high regard for their instructor and training staff.

What did you find most impressive about Forte Group?

Forte Group's team is willing to help and anticipate a substantial amount of organizational needs from our side. They've been acted as a long-term partner, always willing to work with us and offer solutions, rather than take part in the firefighting.

Are there any areas Forte Group could improve?

No, so far so good.
