What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
Ingemark went above and beyond in terms of quality and their work was instructive for our own development team. Producing code is one thing, but producing quality code with proper documentation, which can be used and reused, is something we learned from them. After this engagement concluded, we took over the code and were able to reuse it without significant intervention from Ingemark. It was a great opportunity and an outsourcing success.
Their work allowed us to catch some tricky deadlines within a multinational strategic project in our bank. It didn’t reach full commercialization because of political and strategic reasons, so there were no measurable business benefits from the engagement. However, our collaboration is continuing, and we’re expecting to see some real financial benefits from our next project with them.
How did Ingemark perform from a project management standpoint?
We were hoping to run an agile methodology, but we ended up with a mix of agile and waterfall on the direction of our parent company, who managed the project. We had a local and a group project manager, and we directly managed the team by Ingemark and tracked tasks and bugs. They were meticulous in their efforts. They really strove to push and deliver more, and they worked additional hours just to help our project and team succeed.
What did you find most impressive about them?
They have a collection of very sophisticated engineers, and their team members excel in terms of architecture and modern approaches to building applications. I’ve been in contact with a lot of developers, software companies, and new-age startups in my line of work, but I’ve rarely seen the consistency, quality of communication, and suggested solutions that Ingemark provided. Nobody’s come close to them in terms of quality and modern design.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No, I’m satisfied with their work on this project.
Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?
Ask for a proof of concept. This is something that Ingemark excels in.
