Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?
During our time working together, they’ve been extremely valuable. We wanted Fount’s contractors to join our teams, assist, and be involved. We use Agile and Scrum processes, and they’ve been able to jump right in and produce consistently. They’ve required minimal overhead. With other vendors and contractors, it’s taken weeks to figure out a project’s background. These guys were able to provide value quickly. They’re smart and talented and have a fine-tuned skill set. In addition to providing solutions and assisting the team, they also educate members of our team with regards to knowledge sharing and other practices.
Fount’s flexibility has also been a major factor. As we’ve grown as a company, the needs of our business and products can change. Fount has been able to fulfill our resource needs as they have changed and even shifted between projects when we have needed them to. With previous companies, we didn't have that same level of flexibility.
How did Fount perform from a project management standpoint?
The number of Fount developers that have worked on our team at a time has varied between 1 and 6. Fount initially assigned candidates based on our scope of work and staff needs. I interviewed the candidates to ensure that they fit my teams appropriately, and we went from there. We developed a good relationship based on trust, and they’ve been providing extremely good candidates ever since.
Fount has performed extremely well from a project management standpoint. I left much of the organization up to the teams, Scrum masters, and project managers, but the Fount contractors have been self-sufficient and great at onboarding. They don’t need me to check on them all the time. They’re accountable and responsible, and they’ve definitely proven themselves.
What did you find most impressive about Fount?
The high quality of work, expertise, and ease of working with this team.
Are there any areas Fount could improve?
Honestly, I can't think of any ways that Fount could improve. If I could, I’d love to have them on my team.
