Could you describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail?
They initially were developing our tool to drive traffic to our main site. Basically, the tool was a live boxing scorecard tool, that allowed people to score fights live as the action happened, and comment, and converse with other people that are scoring the fight in real time. They developed that for us in about three to four weeks. At that point, they also worked on our main site. They didn’t handle all of the design for the main site, but they did for the scoring card tool. They also handled all of the server administration work, database setup, and so on.
What was your process for selecting FulleStop with which to work?
We went through Elance. I’ve worked with offshore developer teams for the last six to seven years, so I’m familiar with the process. I went through Elance and vetted a lot of different teams, looked at profiles and portfolios, spoke to some teams, and after a few interviews I selected FulleStop.
Could you provide a general cost estimate for this particular engagement?
Less than $3,000 for initial development of the scorecard tool. Then there was the server testing, load balancing, so that probably took the cost to between $3,000 and $5,000.
What was the duration of this project?
We started working with them in October of 2013 on our main site. That work is still ongoing. The scorecard tool started in late February or early March of 2014, and was live by April 12, 2014.
We actually made the decision to work with another team that we felt might have more experience, but we’ve now decided that we are eager to get back to FulleStop. We realize that their work is unparalleled.
