The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Our company operates in 67 regions of Russia, including Moscow and the Moscow region.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire this vendor?

We always support large-scale events in cities, and many residents want to get photos from these events. By default, photos are posted 2–3 days after, which means that visitors have to not only wait but also look for their photos from thousands of others.

Tele2 wanted to break free of those rules. To do that, we needed a tool that would allow the user to immediately get their photos without searching and waiting.

We provided instant upload of photos to the server via a camera with a Wi-Fi module and a modem with a Tele2 SIM card. For a quick search, Napoleon IT developed a service for recognizing the user's face and searching for his photos in the database.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goals were to:

  • increase the reach of users on social networks
  • support the “Other Rules” approach
  • create a new customer experience
  • and emphasize the company's orientation on the integration of the latest technologies
SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

A tender was announced to develop this solution. Napoleon IT won because they could provide a complete solution—a machine learning model and develop a web interface, at the best cost.

Describe the project in detail.

This is an interface with a computer vision module into which a guest uploads a photo, and the system selects the photos from the specific event that the guest participated in.

What was the team composition?

The Napoleon IT team included: a project manager, three data scientists, a backend developer, a frontend developer, a DevOps engineer, and a QA engineer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The newly developed service is now enjoyed by over a thousand users. 

How effective is your workflow between your team and theirs? Did you use any specific project management tools?

The Napoleon IT team works according to the Agile methodology, and the work was very productive. They indicated that collaboration with the client is more important than agreeing on the terms of the contract. Instead of insisting on following the original plan, they were also willing to change when needed. They used the Trello service to set tasks and track progress. 

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their approach to product development really blew me away. Their extensive engagement with the customer as well as their interest in the success of the project were very impressive. From the very beginning, roles and responsibilities were defined on both sides, which allowed us to develop a truly useful and convenient service.

Are there any areas for improvement?

At the moment, no!

Please describe your company and your position there.

I work for Prem Media Publishing, which is a digital and print publishing company. We run two of our own magazine titles and also work with other establishments on a contract basis to publish their marketing or content media.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Napoleon IT?

We needed to create a fully-functional digital publishing platform that would let us fully control our work along every step of our digital publication process. It also had to integrate with our existing publisher tools.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a platform that could take us seamlessly from concept to publication without exiting our internal tools and processes, or relying on outsourcing. It was important to be able to move our ideas and content between departments without any glitches.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We came across them on social media and struck up a relationship. Within a few meetings, we knew that they understood our needs and decided to hire them.

Describe the project in detail.

We wanted to be able to seamlessly move projects all the way from the title or issue concept to publication. In order to do this, our platform had to be able to support templates for building mock pages. We also needed sufficient flexibility to convey multiple kinds of storylines and come up with varied design concepts. One of the most important things Napoleon IT did for us was to add an InDesign plugin to the platform so we could accomplish this. They also built a custom testing tool that lets us go through the final proof to inspect pages and content—it even works on phones and tablets so that we can fully evaluate how the end product will look for our users. Lastly, they also built a custom publishing tool that will connect our final product to all of our relevant app stores. It’s fully automated and requires very little technical knowledge on our end.

What was the team composition?

Our in-house team worked with of their two developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Using the new platform, we successfully launched two of our own titles, as well as four or five contract-published ones. Managing the prices and content on the various app stores is much easier now and we’re in full control of the process, which was what we wanted.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their team is always on hand whenever we needed something. We keep in touch via email and instant message; they’re very welcoming and professional regarding all of our concerns. They understand our needs well, which has made everything easy.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their technical expertise is exceptional. Aside from that, I appreciate their open communication and willingness to understand what we’re looking for.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There’s always areas of improvement and Napoleon IT constantly reach out to me with ways to improve our platform. They’re quite diligent about improving themselves.
