What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
The impact of this platform surpassed the monetary investment. The platform had no downtime, no bugs, and nothing to be corrected. It worked perfectly in all schools and was completely stable.
The fact that it was integrated with Office 365 was really powerful for us. It also helped us to achieve a goal we hadn’t been able to reach, which was activation of the Office 365 accounts for 17,000 students.
The test was available anywhere, anytime. Since it was a web form on Azure, even if we lost internet connection, the student could continue the test once we were back online.
They developed this in less than a week as the Department of Education required the test before they had initially indicated, and INVID adjusted for this. They placed a bigger team on the project and worked on weekends to have the project ready by this new deadline.
How did INVID perform from a project management standpoint?
Since the beginning of the project, they made sure they understood the project perfectly and made suggestions to improve our ideas. The communication was excellent in all media: calls, Skype, in office, WhatsApp, and text messages. We used an agile method. They checked in frequently to make sure everything was going well.
What did you find most impressive about them?
It was great how they understood the client’s needs in record time. Even though they’re not experts on education, they developed a product that exceeded the client’s needs. That was the key.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No. It was a difficult, almost impossible task, and they kept up with all the challenges and created a quality product. I am very thankful and happy with their work.
