Could you describe the scope of the project in terms of components? Did it include custom design, development, training, and support?
Yes. They’ve put their fingerprint on every part of the design from the logic of it to making sure that the user interface was working correctly, storage, and even just setting up the DNS correctly, the secure socket layer certificate. They’ve done a fantastic job in every aspect, and everything I ask them to do, they usually have a great comprehension of what I’m trying to do afterward.
How did you select Otreva as your solution partner to replace the other developers you’ve been working with?
I had called another firm that wasn’t deep into Web development and they referred me to Otreva. I had a conversation with them. It was quite interesting because they were extremely helpful even though they were as experienced as I had hoped. I then went through two more developers before returning to Otreva. While they might have lacked the depth of expertise I was seeking, the Otreva team embraced a vigilant work ethic, and they possessed a lot of creative workarounds that I thought might be of use.
What parts of the project did you contribute to outside of the general oversight of the project?
We provided the content that Otreva then cleaned and integrated into the site. They organized and streamlined it for us on the backend, and we would review their progress each step of the way. Rarely, if ever, did they complete a functional component that wasn’t up to par.
Could you give me a sense of the size of this initiative in monetary terms?
Yes. The total cost of development was probably a little bit more than $100,000 at this point, but we anticipate that over the next five years, it would probably be in the neighborhood about $250,000.
When was this project completed?
We launched the site about a month ago. We actually don’t have our first client yet, but we’re marketing it right now.
