What was the scope of their involvement?
Using some broad specs and a process of iterative discussions with us, Nodero built an MVP over a period of 25 weeks. The presentation layer was built on the Zurb Foundation framework, utilising Angular 4, TypeScript and Kendo UI components. They were very accommodating of some early changes to the technical specification which provided for better alignment with our internal IT frameworks.
We then worked with them via a support agreement during the trial and full user testing of the MVP which resulted in further product enhancements that have recently been completed and are in the final stages of testing.
We are currently doing some work on our internal business processes prior to consideration of a full production version in the future.
What is the team composition?
We worked directly with a senior developer and others in the business operations area of Nodero.
How did you come to work with Nodero?
They were already a preferred provider at our university and had experience working on a range of projects with university staff. It was therefore easy to establish a contract with them under our umbrella agreement. That said, both myself and one of the other project staff had worked directly with them in the past and found them to be really good. They listened, delivered, and were very accommodating of changes and refinements. After initial contact, they provided us with a quotation, which we accepted with some changes to the scope, and it was all very easy, we got on with it.
How much have you invested in them?
We have spent about $135,000 on the MVP, support agreement and product enhancements.
What is the status of this engagement?
Substantive work was undertaken from May–October 2018, with support and refinements delivered thereafter.
