How did you select NIVIDATA CONSULTANCY and what were the deciding factors?
The opinions of some customers were definitive in making the decision. Someone I have full confidence in had already worked with them.
Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and technologies used.
The first stage of the project could be said to be the one for which we requested the budget. It may seem obvious but already in this initial phase, I could see the professionalism with which they work. The communication was very fluid and before presenting their proposal they made sure they understood perfectly what the needs were that we wanted to cover. Among other things, they asked me for access to the website to study it in depth. No one had ever done that before. When this phase was over we entered the development phase.
They created a shared board in Trello and all the steps of the project were reflected there. It was necessary to make a shop with a series of very demanding requirements. In the shop, they could buy partners and non-partners. To become a member you would have to pay an annual fee and in return, you would get a discount on all the products in the shop. After one year you have to renew the fee to be able to buy again at a reduced price. Second-hand material is also offered in exchange for another annual fee, which complicated things.
As it was a school, there could also be twins, which would make it difficult to identify who the purchase was for, but we found a solution. And we also had to implement technology to meet the GDPR And of course a complex system of invoicing and above all, personalized data export to be able to separate the purchases of the students by class. From a web made in WordPress, they made modifications in PHP about the ChildTheme. I can't give more details because I don't know. I only know that everything works as we wish.
How many people from the vendor's team worked with you, and what were their positions?
I worked directly with the co-founder and one of his workers.
