Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?
Sourcing talent is hard. Delivering in a start up is hard. Sourcing talent to fill a variety of shifting roles AND having those people consistently deliver is very hard. IT Craftship continues to deliver people and product that surpass anything we have seen stateside.
Each team member is mission driven, centrally focused and trained in a variety of skills, and disciplines. They are careful in their recommendations, and support their product suggestions, and their hiring recommendations with data. Every time. Their impact on the project has been immeasurable to date.
You simply won't find a more cost conscious, qualified and intelligent software development team anywhere else. They are dedicated to their craft, and I am reminded of that dedication and brilliance everyday as I'm using the products they have helped deliver.
How was project management arranged and how effective was it?
Project management on our project has been very impressive, especially compared to the quality of the output I have seen historically across a variety of different teams and individuals. Team members responsible for timelines, deliverables, and communication of such have been remarkable assets to our project and need very little oversight. Show them where you want to go on the horizon, or what your goals are, and they deliver within the scope and timeline.
What did you find most impressive about this company?
I have never met a team of people with the consistency of output that IT Craftship has. As they have helped us find additional team members, their hiring has been spot on every time - without fail. When those team members are given deliverables, there is clear communication with the intent to reach a point of mutual understanding, and then they deliver day in and day out.
They are delightful to work with, sharp as a tack, and consistently seek to raise our vision of what is possible with a development partner. They are the first team that has ever sought to come to us physically in an effort to better understand their role, and how we could continue to work together. Working with them continues to be a gift.
Are there any areas for improvement?
Very little improvement needed. Small items come up now and again, but improvement is a consistent part of the delivery with IT Craftship - Each team member receives ample investment in time and energy from the companies leadership team - They are in this to make your project better, period.
