What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
They came prepared with solutions about adding more servers and building a scalable platform. This helped our business and product in the long run. Scalability and architecture were the most important things for us. We knew that, if we thought this out from the beginning, it would help us lower costs.
The user experience of the platform is great. It’s something we didn’t put too much thought into (this is the first version of the platform), but they really surprised us by building a great UX and thinking through it. We didn’t request a full design, but they managed to do it just based on wireframes. The team did a great job on this.
How did Nordlogic Software perform from a project management standpoint?
The deadline we set was for mid-July, and they managed to finish almost one month early, which was great for us.
We didn’t really have a budget for project management, but they found a good solution. They added a technical manager to the team, with excellent project management skills. I think that was the main reason they managed to finish before the deadline.
Their communication was great — they understood what needed to be done. For instance, we had a talk with their CTO during our first meeting, and he asked us some really great questions about scalability, which we hadn’t taken that much into consideration. That was really helpful for us.
What did you find most impressive about them?
It’s their technical management. We’re all in the same industry, so it’s not that easy to impress us, but they managed to do that with their technical management team. They have a lot of experience behind them with numerous projects and big clients.
The most important part for us was the scalability of the architecture, and they thought about solutions from the early stages about how to tackle these problems.
Also, we were really impressed with their .NET capabilities on the backend. They have more than 10 years of experience in that technology.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No. They’ve done a really good job on all sides.
Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?
One piece of advice would be to listen to the solutions they propose and be open to their ideas. We gave them our trust, and they succeeded. The result was even better because of that.
