What was the scope of their involvement?
I’ve worked on about 20 projects with Galaxy Weblinks, each one with unique frameworks and requirements. I design the projects, compile build instructions, and create prototypes. Once that’s done, Galaxy Weblinks and I review the project requirements and confirm their understanding. After they give me a bid, we normally start development. During a normal scope of work, they handle backend development, database configuration, and architecture. We build from my existing schematic or process flow, making sure that everything works properly and that all the information to be processed or captured is integrated properly.
We normally collaborate on platforms or apps, which require a lot of backend integration. If we build an app, we develop for both Android and iOS. We also write apps in React Native and others frameworks that allow us to write code once and use it on multiple devices.
If the project requires any APIs or integrations, they get a mandate and perform research to ensure that the API is integrated properly. If it isn’t, then they create a custom script that captures the information and moves it to the correct database.
What is the team composition?
I work directly with three people. My primary contact is always their COO, who is based in Boston. The second is a gentleman who travels between India and the U.S. They also have a project manager based in India. That’s the standard setup for any project.
How did you come to work with Galaxy Weblinks?
I first got in touch with them when Facebook apps were extremely popular. My client needed one, so I looked for someone to handle the development and landed on Galaxy Weblinks. I decided on them because of our natural chemistry.
Although we didn’t build the Facebook app, the relationship grew and we worked on other projects. For our first project, I was building a video platform to compete with a popular humor website. They handled the backend video streaming integration and made the solution responsive.
How much have you invested with them?
I’ve spent $100,000–$120,000 on their services.
What is the status of this engagement?
I’ve worked with Galaxy Weblinks for years. Our most recent project finished two months ago.
