What was the scope of their involvement?
It was quite a big project. Our website—a powerful search engine for training—had been scratch-coded over the course of ten years. They’ve basically transformed how we, as administrative users, manage the platform to interact with our clients and users.
The initial scope of their project was to shift the site into an MVC format. After we talked to them, though, they pitched us on recoding the entire platform—the administrative side, as well as the member and vendor pages.
They implemented a new search engine. While our past engine was an open-source SQL search engine, they moved us to a cloud-based search. Although we still use PHP on the frontend, they also moved us to a different library. Our frontend now relies on a new framework.
What is the team composition?
I only interacted with Mike (Technical Director, Meevo Digital) Tim (Managing Director, Meevo Digital) and Robert (Backend Developer, Meevo Digital). While I didn’t interface with their entire team, I know there were several developers involved in the project. At one point, we had one developer on their team that was dedicated to our project full-time.
How did you come to work with Meevo Digital?
I reached out to contacts who do development work as part of their business, and Mike was recommended to me. I met with him and gave him a couple of weeks to construct a concept. We decided to move forward with them after he showed us that he could quickly deliver.
How much have you invested with them?
We’re spending around $60,000 a year with them, and it’s been over two years. So I figure we’ve spent somewhere over $120,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We began working together in February 2017 and the work is still ongoing.
