What was the scope of their involvement?
This is our first effort with development and Orases really took the lead with us. This probably was not the most technically difficult project they’ve ever had; however, we’re bringing specific industry information that they probably don’t have a lot of experience with, and yet they’ve made successful efforts to learn about the field. We began by sharing our thoughts and goals, and they listened to what we wanted and gave feedback to help steer the direction of development. Then we moved on to the discovery phase, where they shared wireframes and collaborated with us thoroughly.
Orases developed the iOS, Android, and web platforms with an emphasis on UX for our specific clients. They created a dashboard component, that I can access on a desktop, where all the mobile application information flows to. The application itself helps customers do daily vehicle inspections and provides a method for drivers to make notes, provide photos, and list any defects, all of which are then funneled to the dashboard. All in all, this helps all of us identify possible safety issues and what might need attention.
What is the team composition?
We have a main point of contact and, when we share a weekly call with them, usually also speak with a developer. There are about three to five other developers working in the background.
How did you come to work with Orases?
I actually first found them from Clutch. I read their reviews and did my own investigating into their work and then spoke directly with the owner, Nick Damoulakis. That conversation pretty much sold me to work with them.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent over $100,000 in total thus far.
What is the status of this engagement?
We began development in October, 2017, and are still working together.
