Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?
Some major corporations, including HPE, CSC, and Facebook, have started using this software. [HPE & CSC – Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and Computer Sciences Corporation – merged into DXC Technology in April 2017] The major portion was developed by NG Logic. These three big companies started using ContractRoom because of NG Logic’s development work. There is definitely strong evidence that we would not have gotten that business is we didn’t have a good product.
How did NG Logic perform from a project management standpoint?
I think they’re pretty good. On a scale of one to ten, I would say they're a seven or eight. There’s room for improvement, but they’ve done a pretty good job. We’re a startup and we move very fast, and they coped with that. If it was a bigger company, this would be much better aligned. For a startup, we had a lot of deadlines and a lot of big clients, and they were still able to manage that. We’ve used a couple of tools over the past two to three years, including Microsoft Project. However, we mostly use Excel for a lot of the project management work. We use a lot of different tools for code reviews and to manage the development cycles.
What did you find most impressive about NG Logic?
I think the commitment of their team is unique and very much appreciated. These guys work on Saturdays when needed, and they’re very hard-working.
Are there any areas NG Logic could improve?
I think they could improve in time management. They could improve the sprint cycles, releases, and bug-fixing better if they were managed properly.
Do you have any advice for future clients?
I would suggest that clients ensure that NG Logic is capable in the technologies they plan to use. Not everyone is going to use Python, Postgres, and Elasticsearch. As long as they find the right technology, and they have expertise, then NG Logic would be a good choice. We found that, as long as their technical skills are strong, we’re able to work with them.
