What was the scope of their involvement?
Full Metal Software completed the technical aspects of making our baseBot software. We had a really good kickoff meeting, during which we looked at different specifications we wanted. From there, Full Metal Software broke the project down into five phases.
They implemented a login page, a process number generator, and two complicated product design sheets. We have lots of components in our designs that need to be tweaked slightly to give a bit of a balance within the products. They managed to create a system that takes each previously used component and imports all of that information. The system is interactive, so we can tweak it and then see how the output is.
The software is hosted on Asura. This gives us control over the project in the future.
What is the team composition?
There are 2–3 people. The developer has been really hands-on and engaged with their work. Ben (Software Solutions Development Expert, Full Metal Software) oversees the project very well. He gives the developer space to interact with us. When the developer is on holiday, they make sure there are people there to answer our questions.
How did you come to work with Full Metal Software?
We outsource our IT to another company, and we initially approached them with the idea for this project. We told them that we wanted a more advanced system. They said they had a contact that would be a good fit for us, and that was Full Metal Software. We had a couple of meetings with them to feel out their competencies. We looked at the testimonials of previous customers, and that was the main drive in deciding to work with them.
How much have you invested with them?
My company has spent £30,000 (approximately $39,500 USD).
What is the status of this engagement?
We began working together in August 2018. We’re currently in the validation phase.
