The Review
Feedback summary: 

InToSoft's technical expertise was instrumental in the development of more complex projects for the customers. They demonstrated a transparent management approach and flexibility in providing the resources. There were challenges, but the team was able to handle them efficiently.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We are a systems integrations company. We provide outsourced IT solutions to our customers. We have our own cloud servers with 24/7 maintenance, on which clients can host their infrastructure. We also run IT development projects, including server and desktop virtualization, as well as networking configurations.

What is your position?

I am the director of our development division.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with InToSoft?

When we started working with InToSoft, we were having difficulties in finding skilled personnel in the Netherlands. I had set up my own academy in order to provide SharePoint development training, but I was not able to grow as fast as I'd have wanted. We decided to outsource our resources as a result.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement.

We build SharePoint portals and .NET custom applications for customers, which is where InToSoft's services were required.

The developers from InToSoft act as a part of my team. They're not located in my office, but we use Skype for constant communication and have hired a project manager in the Netherlands who acts as an interface for their team. This has worked out very well for us. InToSoft's staff is highly skilled. Their technical expertise is at a higher level compared to the local developers in the Netherlands. We use them within all the development projects for our customers and have had good results consistently.

The team provided by InToSoft consisted of 4 developers at its peak. It has stabilized to 3 developers currently. Over the course of our relationship, we've only changed one developer, when that person left the company in order to work somewhere else. The change was handled well by InToSoft. We had set up a technical profile from the start, against which candidates could be evaluated. Based on it, I selected a developer for my team. I made decisions on how the interview process would be conducted, taking into consideration factors like technical ability and English language level. Even in the unfortunate case of a team member leaving, InToSoft quickly found a good replacement.

How did you come to work with InToSoft?

During my working experience, I've worked with people in India, China, and the Philippines. I wanted to look a little closer to home, as it can be difficult to work with an outsourcing company that far away. I had a look at the markets in Ukraine, Belarus, and Romania. InToSoft came out as a winner from this process.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them a little over 2 years ago.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

Unfortunately, I don’t have access to any specific figures related to their work.

How did InToSoft perform from a project management standpoint?

Within every IT project, there will be challenges in terms of scheduling. Every challenge was handled by InToSoft with the same efficiency as they would have been handled by my own team.

We are a Microsoft-oriented company, so we use the portals made available through the Microsoft development toolkit. We also communicate daily through Skype in order to run our scrum project sprints. Individual developers communicate with each other as much as ten times a day.

What distinguishes InToSoft from other providers?

The main benefit of working with InToSoft was the ability to scale our resources to our exact needs. Also, as I've mentioned, the technical expertise offered by InToSoft is a bit higher than what is typically available in the Netherlands. We were able to develop more complex projects for customers as a result.

Is there anything InToSoft could have improved or done differently?

There's always room for improvement, especially in the details. We continue to strive in understanding each other better and following procedures more efficiently. There are no underlying problems with InToSoft though. They run through the same challenges which I've seen in my Dutch staff as well. Developers can be less focused and make little mistakes as a result. After each project, we do a review and evaluate what was done correctly and what could be done better.

Could you share any tips with future clients?

The most important thing that a client looking to work with InToSoft could do is make sure that they have a member in their company who has an understanding of the local language and can interface with the people on a personal level. Although everyone usually talks using Skype, in the event of a communication issue or a cultural difference, our interpreter can step in. Communication and working together can only be successful if enough time is spent cultivating the relationship. It should not be treated as simply as a money-saving solution. The client should invest in the relationship just as they would in building their internal team, and engage with the provider on a greater level than what is simply demanded by the projects themselves.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

InToSoft has proven to be a competent and reliable partner with a high degree of flexibility and responsiveness. They were professional and very open to the needs and payment structures.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We are an e-commerce provider working with different clients and agencies within the United States. We provide mostly backend services.

What is your position?

I am the President and Chief Executive Officer of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with InToSoft?

Our company has grown faster than our ability to train our own in-house team. We needed additional resources in order to handle some projects.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement.

InToSoft provides PHP development for us, specifically for the Magento e-commerce platform. They work on bug fixes, feature implementations, as well as customizations.

We work on e-commerce integrations with backend services. InToSoft also handles some of the frontend CSS and HTML work. Our clients are typically B2C businesses which sell consumer items, but they can also be B2B distributors of professional products.

We manage the developers from InToSoft directly. We've used as much as five team members. They offer us developers with different skillsets, depending on our tasks.

We don't engage in project work with them. InToSoft acts as an additional staffing source for our company. The work is done on a week-by-week and month-by-month basis.

How did you come to work with InToSoft?

One of my senior-level managers found them. He was assigned with scouting companies in Eastern and Southern Europe, and came up with InToSoft. I did not want to work with India and did not want to hire a US company either.

We evaluated InToSoft based on their skillsets and price point. They were a match in this sense. We started with smaller projects and requested a few changes in the developers assigned to us before coming to a working relationship.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

We really don’t have any specific metrics to share. The work they complete doesn’t really lend itself to that kind of measurement.

How did InToSoft perform from a project management standpoint?

They're competent and smart people. InToSoft is very open to our needs structure, in terms of how we work with our clients, as well as to our payment structure. They're very quick to respond whenever we have a problem, which is a critical requirement in our situation. They are above the middle of the road and are a very professional company.

What distinguishes InToSoft from other providers?

I consider them to be a solid provider. This immediately puts InToSoft in a different class. A lot of companies don't know what they're doing and don't have the willingness to replace their developers when someone makes a mistake or is sick. InToSoft seems to have good recruiting processes and competent engineers. Simply by doing this, they will reach the top 20% of available companies.

Is there anything InToSoft could have improved or done differently?

Some of the staff members they provided us with were not responsive and efficient enough, but InToSoft was able to replace them in a timely manner. This did lead to an image drop with our clients, because InToSoft's performance is directly reflected on our own. Nobody can operate at 100%, but if your performance is at 80%, which I find to be true of InToSoft, everything will be fine.
