What was the scope of their involvement?
Ideamotive helped us define the problem and identify key project goals. We started by examining our previous system to find its flaws and locate opportunities for improvement. Together, we developed a roadmap for the new system. They’ve shown expertise in developing the overall strategy. Our previous supplier worked with a linear, sequential development approach, which was just not suitable for our constantly growing and changing business needs.
Ideamotive introduced us to the agile approach, which turned out to be a great choice. We designed our new web app with them. They provided meaningful input to designing new features and worked with us to develop the user interface and the user experience. Currently, we’re developing our system on a monthly basis. It’s an ongoing partnership.
What is the team dynamic?
The project manager role was held by Michał [Co-Founder/Lead Software Engineer, Ideamotive]. We also worked with Paweł [Ruby on Rails, Ideamotive] for the full-stack development and with Miłosz [CTO, Ideamotive] who gave help with deployment into the cloud, servers and the manual directed tasks.
How did you come to work with Ideamotive?
Ideamotive was recommended by a friend. We considered other suppliers, interviewed them, and asked to fill out a detailed survey where they proposed which methodology for development is best. Ideamotive excelled at this stage of our process. Using examples from their experience, they have convinced us to switch to the agile approach for development and choose industry standard solutions: Ruby on Rails for the backend and React for the frontend. From the start of the conversation, we quickly developed an internal language and we knew that they understood our needs. It was a no-brainer to choose Ideamotive.
How much have you invested with them?
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together October 2016 and the work is ongoing. We think of adding additional developers as our needs grow along with our business.
