The Review
Feedback summary: 

The high-quality product is faithful to the design and meets expectations, especially on UX. Responsive and available, JMR Technologies ensures strong project management and sticks to timelines. They’ve provided advice that improves solutions.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m CTO and Head of Research and Development for a Swiss company that develops tools for the sports industry to measure human motion.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JMR Technologies?

An existing partner had developed our hardware but we needed accompanying software with a great interface and easy UX. We knew what we wanted to develop. The software is based on new laboratory research. Our goal was to make it easy to use for any kind of sports coach.

We had developed software in-house but our team is specialized in iOS, not Android or web-based development, so we needed those skills.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

JMR Technologies built the prototype for the software and is now building the final product. It runs on our existing hardware and integrates with existing APIs. It’s a big and complex project. We did all the design on our side, including the mockups. They followed instructions and built to our specifications. The design has been respected; it looks exactly like what we projected.

What is the team composition?

We work with one developer.

How did you come to work with JMR Technologies?

We were looking for someone to do this development for us when our CEO met someone for whom they had developed a mobile application. We contacted them and had a good feeling about them. I visited them in Poland and we decided to do the project with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in December 2017 and it’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We found someone that was able to build our vision both in design and functionality. UX was really important to us and we have a tool that is easy for everyone to use and understand.

How did JMR Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

Our developer has managed the whole project and done a great job. He’s always available for me and responsive when we have problems or need something rebuilt. They’ve managed time well and stuck to our timelines. We needed presentations, for example, that were always ready on time.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re responsive. They’re always available and able to react if anything happens or if changes have to be made. They can offer different solutions to solve the problem very quickly.

They also offered us advice on certain things based on their experience to make them easier than we might have anticipated.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don't think there’s anything else I need from them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

For me, they did the job right. If you know what you want and you give them the right idea of it, they’ll be able to do it.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Their programmer was highly capable and worked well independently in order to complete deliverables in a timely manner. She had a good grasp of all project components, came up with effective solutions to deliver the features we needed, and responded quickly to bug reports.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CTO for a company that provides compliance solutions to financial institutions. We provide security tools to protect against fraud and money laundering.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JMR Technologies?

We had a client last year who wanted to make substantial changes to a custom software within a short period of time. Our in-house developers were already working on a lot of other projects and couldn’t complete it fast enough, so we hired a team to help us out.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our client was an insurance company that needed to be able to verify if the names on policies were also on a government-published list. The developers absorbed those lists into our web-based software so that the client could search for them. The lists are stored in an SQL database and hosted on a server, and then the software was built using a .NET framework, C#, MVC5, and Bootstrap. There are also API plugins and some JavaScript functions.

What is the team composition?

We had one developer working with us. One other person oversaw our account, but I didn’t work with him directly.

How did you come to work with JMR Technologies?

I initially talked with a contact in India who didn’t work out, so after that, I did a web search for other companies that were cost-effective and spoke good English. My boss is Polish, so he liked the idea of a Polish company. We contacted several companies by email and JMR was the only one that responded promptly. We had a conference call on Zoom and liked their team enough to sign them on for the project. I later traveled out to Poland for a week to meet them face to face.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from January–March 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

I’m a longtime programmer myself and I’ve both seen and managed quite a few other programmers. Sometimes when you hire a new person or team, it can take a while before they fully understand the work. I used the site visit to assess their developer and ensure that she could carry out our objectives without much supervision. I was really satisfied with how she tackled the problem we gave her and the solution she came up with. She also handled challenges like bugs well and delivered great customer service.

How did JMR Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re responsive—we’d send an email and hear back within an hour or two, even during the holidays when many businesses slowed down. We mostly used Skype to discuss requirements and issues with the project. Since they were working remotely, I ended up going to meet them in person so we could establish a solid line of communication and ensure an efficient knowledge transfer in terms of project goals.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The programmer did a great job of working independently and researching solutions before asking someone else to assist.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I only worked with the programmer, not the business end, but I’d recommend being a bit more thorough with testing. I recognize that young programmers sometimes want to impress you and push the software out quickly, but I found a few times that the testing hadn’t been done everywhere and some things needed correcting. That said, any bugs were corrected very promptly.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be patient about delays. Sometimes we’d have to wait an hour or two to get a response on an urgent matter.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work for a startup incubator based in France. We design websites for startups and connect them with resources to facilitate growth.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JMR Technologies?

We lacked in-house resources to build client websites. We needed web developers to supplement our design team and create sites on Wagtail.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They implemented our designs to build sites on Wagtail according to our clients’ specifications. They also developed both the back and front-end.

What is the team composition?

Depending on the project, we've worked with 1–5 developers. We collaborate with multiple startups, so the project demands vary.

What is the status of this engagement?

Work began in August 2016 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Once the sites launched, our clients give us continuous feedback; they’ve always been pleased with the final results. On the rare occasion that there’s a bug, JMR Technologies reacts quickly to amend any issues, even on weekends.

In terms of our working relationship, our team appreciates their commitment to communication. They excel at translating technical language in an accessible way so that we can work together efficiently. They’re adept at using diagrams and examples to ensure we’re all on the same page.

How did JMR Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

We deploy in-house project managers to facilitate interaction between the client and JMR Technologies team. We use Pivotal Tracker to manage progress and communicate through Skype. They collaborate with us to establish timelines and understand the importance of respecting deadlines.

What did you find most impressive about them?

In addition to their professionalism, our team greatly values how personable they are. They know when to be humorous to make the client feel at ease, which has encouraged a productive relationship. They’re just a lot of fun to work with.

Are there any areas they could improve?

In a business environment, it’s imperative to work as quickly and efficiently as possible. While they respected deadlines, they could potentially improve their work speed to help the client.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If a customer has a specific work methodology, they shouldn’t hesitate to approach JMR Technologies. Their team is open-minded and well-equipped to adapt to ambiguous situations.

Feedback summary: 

JMR’s resources are adaptable and responsive. Combined with their expertise in specialized tech and problem-solving skills, the team is clearly capable of handling fluid projects.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our firm is an intermediary between companies that want to develop applications or any kind of IT interface. We provide the product owner the functional development support, and we develop with the help of different agencies. I’m the product owner.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JMR Technologies?

We were building an application that allowed users to book or buy anything online through some kind of wizard step application. It would be used by several websites and could adapt to different kinds of products.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We do the functional specifications as well as the design work. The primary scope for JMR is development. We encourage them to advise us sometimes and suggest better ideas for functionality, design, or technical aspects.

How did you come to work with JMR Technologies?

We were looking for a very specific set of technologies, which were Django REST framework and React. There are not a lot of agencies who are able to supply experienced developers in those technologies. We found a listing online of Django-specialized companies, and we contacted a lot of them.

How much have you invested with JMR Technologies?

It would be difficult to say the price as all projects are done in phases. There is no overall cost of one project. It’s never-ending because we’re always updating and developing. Any kind of project here ranges between $10,000 and a few hundred thousand.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project began in June or July of 2016, and we continue to work with JMR. The development on this project is finished, and we’re now in a maintenance stage. We’ll soon resume working with JMR on other projects.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

At the very beginning, we had a period of mutual adaptation, so there were some quality issues. That was also partly due to our side not specifying our requirements and expectations well enough. Now that everything is settled, we are really satisfied with JMR. We are giving them more and more projects. They are ultimately going to be our main supplier on the technical side of our business. We really appreciate their flexibility. They are able to work overtime or provide us with more developers on very short notice.

How did JMR Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

Most of the project management is done on our side. We had budget overruns and delays, but that’s half on them and half on us. When we go off track, it’s always on both sides. It’s happened a few times, but we’ve never had a huge issue.

What did you find most impressive about JMR Technologies?

I’d say it’s their flexibility and proximity. JMR is able to really adapt to our needs. We can schedule with their CEO any time to discuss a project. We have open communication and flexibility.

Are there any areas JMR Technologies could improve?

They try to give us the best picture of a project. When there are issues, they prefer to deal with it by themselves, so we don’t see it. It’s not really hiding from us, but more that they are proud of solving the problem by themselves. Sometimes it would be better to share the issue with us so that we could also have our say in the solution. Even if their ideas are really great, they may not match up to our business needs and priorities.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

They are not perfect, but no one is. I am generally happy with them. They are willing to work on a project until it's complete and assume their mistakes. They're hardworking and fair.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with JMR Technologies?

I used to hire them from time to time, on a project-by-project basis. We had projects to deliver, and we need programming services. We did some of that work with them.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

It was primarily website development, and they did some minor design work for us. The regular collaboration we had with them was about website development.

How did you come to work with JMR Technologies?

I wasn't the one who found them. They were already working with my company when I started with them.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

I don't really know off the top of my head, because the projects are very different in scale and scope. They vary from very tiny things, which would be probably a few hundred dollars, up to around $20,000 or $30,000. It depends on the scope.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our relationship with them is still ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

In general, the cooperation that we have with them is very good. If it wasn't, we wouldn't be together anymore, and I've been working with them for four years myself. In general, I'm satisfied with the services they provide. They're very responsive, very active, and we have a very close relationship. I often get involved in a very early stage of the project. They are very technology-oriented, so I think they have many good programmers and a lot of good capabilities in terms of coding and programming.

How did JMR Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

The budget is agreed upon in the beginning. We usually present the scope, and then they estimate the amount they want for it. Then it is non-negotiable, unless I change the scope, in which case we talk about the difference in price. Regarding timelines, in 90 percent of cases they meet the deadlines. During the last few years, there were very few cases when they didn't deliver in time.

When it comes to project management, I think they have very limited capabilities, but I have project management on my end. I know they work for many other clients and maybe there is more project management involved with different clients. With us, it's not really needed.

What distinguishes JMR Technologies from other providers?

What I like about JMR Technologies is that they're flexible to meet my needs, and everything is up for discussion. They're very client-oriented. We always look for a solution together to make the project work, and usually we come up with that solution. With some other vendors, things are very strict. It was a yes or no conversation. I think this is also the reason we have had this long relationship with them that's still ongoing, and I don't think that's going to change any time soon.

They're very open and they're very responsive. If I see there's a problem on one of the projects that is managed within my team, I can drop them an email, and they'll be in the meeting the next morning. I appreciate their fast reactions, and I can see that they care about me as a client.

Is there anything JMR Technologies could have improved or done differently?

Sometimes, I feel like they don't have enough quality assurance on their end. I have test engineers, but there were occasions I highlighted to them that, even though delivered on time, the amount of errors was too high. I understand that in every technical project, there's nothing that's going to be 100 percent perfect but, sometimes, there are just too many errors. I've had such incidents happen in the past, but I highlighted to them immediately so they can fix the problem, which they did.

What business challenge were you trying to address with JMR Technologies?

Together with them, we produced quite an innovative game to teach young learners English, and it's probably one of a kind. At the moment, we're talking to a large enterprise tech corporation, and they might be interested in helping us develop something bigger.

They had to produce an application for the game. It's been produced with EU money, and it's free for English teachers. The only requirement is to give your email address because we want to be in touch with the people who will be using it in the future.

How did you come to work with JMR Technologies?

Each project is different, and this time with JMR, I was obliged to have a tender because when you deal with public money, then you have to have a tender each time you employ another company. They won that tender, so I had no previous contact with JMR, they just bid the best price. At first, I was a little worried because I didn't know them, but they proved very reliable and they carried out the task that they were supposed to.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them about half a year ago. We published the tender and signed the contract in October last year, and then it took us about half a year to finish the product. Actually, they finished it earlier, but there was this trial period, and there were some minor corrections to be made. I have to say that they always did it promptly.

The worked has been completed. I suggested something else, but they were too busy, they were not interested. When we decide to make the other product that I have in mind, then I will obviously contact them and ask for a price. I would be willing to cooperate with them. It all depends on money.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

I was extremely pleased with their graphic designer, a young woman who created graphics for the project. At the price that eventually was negotiated through the tender, I feared I would get something horrible, but I'm very pleased. Many people compliment me on the graphics. I think graphics is the strongest component of the application. I'm sure there is a lot of good work inside, but because I'm not fluent in technology, I cannot appreciate it. It works.

How did JMR Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

They delivered on time and within budget. It was fine. They knew that when it comes to finances, they wouldn't get a dime more because European Union projects are very strict. You cannot spend a single dime more. When it comes to deadlines, they were OK. Once or twice, there was a little delay, but probably there was a real reason.

I have to say they were very patient with me. Being a person who doesn't know anything about programming, they had to explain things to me. It was really a cooperation, although the ideas for the project were absolutely mine, they really helped. I was pleased with them. I was very lucky. I could have had a lot of problems, but I didn't have any.

What distinguishes JMR Technologies from other providers?

I think they learned a lesson. The description of the product in the tender document was not very precise. I think their mistake was that they thought it would entail far less work, so in the end they were a little disappointed. However, they were like real gentlemen. They kept their word and they delivered, so I appreciated that.

Is there anything JMR Technologies could have improved or done differently?

There are four mechanics, and one of them doesn't work or at least for me it's not satisfactory. In the final contract that we signed, JMR explained that it's because of the limits of the platform and its abilities. Kids are supposed to grab things that appear, and this is not very precise. This is the only criticism I have with that game. It's one of the four. I think this one should work better for my purposes. For children who work with it, it's a little frustrating that the program doesn't respond properly.

    I don't know how to rate that...when I applied for the money from the EU, and I had a higher number in my mind...so they produced it much cheaper than the number in the project...they complained that they didn't realize...
