What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
Magently is easy to work with and highly professional. They always strive to clarify anything that’s unclear. Like us, they work in a scrum environment. They adjust their process to fit their client’s methods, which required little effort in our case. Having an established development workflow means they conduct proper internal code reviews. Based on these factors, there’s a much lower probability that something will go wrong.
How did Magently perform from a project management standpoint?
Compared to other companies and developers I’ve worked with, Magently manages their developers very well. If the project manager isn’t well-versed in technical matters, they immediately forward the discussion to the developers for clarification. They’re always on time for our daily stand up meetings.
In general, it’s always challenging to meet deadlines for software engineering projects. The easiest way to predict accurate timelines is by multiplying estimates. If a developer thinks a task will take one day, it is more likely to be done in three.
Magently takes the initiative to be transparent and communicate any issues that arise. In addition, they try hard to keep to their estimations. If something gets messed up and takes more time than they planned, they will even work extra hours for free.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Magently is very independent and proactive. I can always rely on them. They communicate well and keep to the schedule. Our company had a clear idea of what we needed to do to achieve our goals. I have a feeling that Magently could help a company that doesn’t have that clarity by identifying improvements to make and problems to solve.
Are there any areas they could improve?
Everything is going really well with Magently. They’re skilled in their field and make the entire process go smoothly.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
It’s always a good idea to understand exactly what you want to do and communicate that properly. List all the features and functionalities you have in mind, and even consider preparing mock-ups. This will make the whole development process go much faster, especially if you want to build something new. Including a third-party company in the brainstorming process will generate new ideas, but it also increases the cost.
Magently is an amazing team to work with when you’re adequately prepared. They execute quickly, ensure that the backlog is always filled, and are consistently professional.
