What was the scope of their involvement?
NiviData developed a platform that solely contains digital files. There are no products to be delivered, and the files are all instantly downloadable. The files are protected, so there are only accessible to those who purchase them. One of the platform’s features is a preview that plays a video when a cursor hovers over a product picture. The NiviData team set up the whole server, ensuring it works properly and is optimized. The code is written in Ruby on Rails.
What is the team composition?
There are two full-time developers, one for backend and the other for frontend. Specialists work on an as-needed basis. For example, one person worked in AWS to set up servers and load balancers, etc.
How did you come to work with NIVIDATA CONSULTANCY?
We found them on Freelancer or Upwork. I interviewed 10–20 developers and teams. They all had reviews except NiviData. However, after our initial call with them, I felt they understood exactly what we needed. NiviData stood out from the others and had a price that fit my budget.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve invested around $25,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We began working on the project in July 2019, and the engagement is ongoing.
