What was the scope of their involvement?
GlobalVincitore developed our website, handling user-interface design, content, and testing. They have also designed and developed one of our billing software solutions, a small ERP with a sales and data-processing module. They created its backend as well. GlobalVincitore is also helping us with ongoing SEO work for the website. We’ve only started the process 3-4 months ago.
The website and sales software are WordPress-based with a PHP backend. We didn’t want a desktop software, but rather a web application we could use on-the-go for adding data. Our marketing people are usually traveling and needed a web application for creating invoices.
We are also working on a third, content management module and a logistics module.
GlobalVincitore has also designed the branding for our brochures, letterhead, and stationery.
What is the team dynamic?
We had two resources for web development who were actively working on the project, including one backend developer. I have been in-touch with one person for testing, which was done on various operating systems and mobile devices.
For the ERP, GlobalVincitore deployed four or five resources for requirements gathering. On the backend, they committed three dedicated resources. We wanted the modules to be delivered in a short time. There were 9-10 people in total working for us during the initial phase.
How did you come to work with GlobalVincitore?
We searched for companies with an online presence and also received a reference from a friend in the US who had used development centers in India. I wanted a partner with local resources. Most companies have teams in India, but GlobalVincitore actually had a development center in Ahmedabad, which is very near to us. The pricing they gave us was comparatively better than other companies’.
How much have you invested with them?
One project had a cost of $8,000. Other invoicing is still pending on our end.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with GlobalVincitore in the third quarter of 2016, around September, and have an ongoing relationship. They continue to provide content writing for us.
