What was the scope of their involvement?
Openweb Solutions used our provided requirements to develop a risk management app. It’s a portfolio management solution that involves three steps: first, a user chooses stocks or assets that are suitable to their risk appetite; next, they buy the stock; finally, they manage their investments and risks.
The app features multiple tools to help users throughout the process, from choosing the appropriate stock to monitoring their assets. It can be difficult for users to keep track of each investment when they have a large portfolio of stocks, so our solution helps provide a financial overview.
Currently, we’re still working on the app and hope to launch soon. Openweb Solutions is building the app with Vue.js and PHP, using MongoDB for the database. There’s still a lot to test and fix, but Openweb Solutions has supported us throughout.
What is the team composition?
They’ve assigned 2–3 developers and 1–2 designers on our project. The main architect is also involved when necessary. If I ever need anything, their CEO is happy to take my phone call.
How did you come to work with Openweb Solutions?
Their CEO reached out to us on Upwork. He made a good impression, had strong English skills, and was technically competent. Even though there was a considerable number of employees who could’ve approached us, it meant a lot that he was the one to contacts us and walk us through the initial steps.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent between $20,000–$50,000 thus far and pay as we go.
What is the status of this engagement?
Their work started in August 2018 and is ongoing. We have so many ideas to implement in the future that I don’t think the project will ever be completed. However, if everything goes according to plan, we’ll launch our solution in Q2 of 2019.
