What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
The fundraising platform just launched this past spring. We’ve only run one school through it so far, and we’re going to make some adjustments. The products NIX Solutions delivered work well and have money for the schools we partner with.
For the other Angular platform, they delivered, we’ve rarely had any unforeseen problems like downtime at all. The few issues we had at the beginning were not their fault. They set up new infrastructure for us, and it’s run flawlessly ever since.
How did NIX Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?
Their communication and project management has been excellent. We use Jira for project management and Confluence for future signoffs. We use a variety of Google Docs for questions, answers, and some preliminary things that we do. Google Docs works well for estimation line items, too.
What did you find most impressive about them?
I highly recommend them, even compared to U.S. teams. “NIX Solutions exceeds most comparable dev shops in their communication, documentation, and follow through.”
Are there any areas they could improve?
I had to have a conversation with 1-2 of their developers about how they structure their databases, but it was very minor. Whenever I’ve asked about any issue billing or hours, they’ve always made it right. They address everything right away and even take a pay cut if they have to.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
I wouldn’t recommend outsourcing unless it’s with NIX Solutions. Get some consultation from someone who can provide code review and make sure it looks good. I haven’t seen code from every codebase that they develop in, but I have a good project manager. Treat them as part of your team instead of like an outsourcing company, and they’ll treat you the same way
