The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the President of a full service MSP that works with assorted clients and customers offering a full rang of services. We have been in business for 25 years.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire MobileFolk?

Alex was hired to design a secure, authenticating Web Based Client Portal for purposes of managing Clinical Database Reviews. He conducted extensive investigation, research and design/functionality testing, review and revisions to deliver the portal/database.

What were your goals for this project?

To move from an inaccurate, slow, low-security manual system to a secure, dynamic web based system. Also, to allow for revisions and modification as the scope of the project changed and evolved.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

A prior vendor who moved on to another position recommended him. We couldn't have been happier. Alex is a pleasure to work with, extremely knowledgeable, creative and patient.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Alex was hired to design a secure, authenticating Web Based Client Portal for purposes of managing Clinical Database Reviews. He conducted extensive investigation, research and design/functionality testing, review and revisions to deliver the portal/database. It took several month and included extensive testing and review. Also, revisions and modifications as needed. Alex was steady and delivered throughout.

What was the team composition?

Numerous client representatives from Clinical Studies, IT members and QA members and staff along with Alex as the Database design lead.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Thanks to the hard work and knowledge Alex provided, the project has been a complete success. We have done two revisions to the site for additional functionality and security and those revisions were also a success and accommodated the evolving needs of the project.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

I was the overall PM working as a liaison between Mobile Folk and the client. I think it was an effective collaboration.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

There are many strengths: Knowledgeable, great communication skills, great documentation, able to listen and take notes, make changes, explain concerns be it with functionality or security. Patient and pleasant to work with.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None. I literally have no complaints. They are a pleasure to work with on all fronts. This project took some time to get off the ground but that had nothing to do with Mobile Folk but rather getting the requirements from the client.
