What was the scope of their involvement?
We initially worked with Goodsoft on one project, and ended up working with them on three different initiatives.
Our largest scale project with Goodsoft was Java development for our integration services inside of the application. Goodsoft helped us to understand what type of services would be required. They wrote it in Java and presented it in the middle tier solution. They also worked with our graphic designer to plug-in all of the frontend GUI interface services. Essentially, they worked with us supporting the backend of the application.
They also helped us define implementation from cycle to cycle. They built a couple of utilities for the client side. Another project was making sure testing was completed for the overall product, regression testing, including the full-service life cycle in detail.
What is the team dynamic?
We work directly with a couple of project managers on a daily basis, but we met the entire team at some point. Before we engaged them for the project, we visited the facility in Vitebsk, where we introduced our services to the team, and they introduced their developers to us. We liked what we saw, and started working together from there.
How did you come to work with Goodsoft?
I had been shopping around for several different associates in the Republic of the former Soviet Union, and came across Goodsoft online. They introduced their services, and they were very advanced and very professional compared to others.
How much have you invested in them?
We’ve spent approximately $50,000—$60,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in January 2013, and it is an ongoing relationship. There was a period of time where our services and their services were fully integrated.
