Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?
This would have to be one of the smoothest projects I have been involved in. Pagepro has an exceptionally disciplined and highly skilled team. They executed our project in a very short timeframe and delivered an outstanding product on time and on budget.
How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?
Right from the start, Pagepro leveraged excellent project management tools and demonstrated a clear and concise communication style, ensuring that everyone knew what had to be done and when. At no point did this partnership ever feel like us vs. them; it felt like the client/vendor were a unified team with a unified goal - in my experience, this is rare when working with vendors on fixed-priced projects.
What did you find most impressive about this company?
It's hard to narrow this down, as the entire project experience was a joy, but the main thing that stood out to me were Pagepro's discipline and commitment to producing a clean, lightweight and high-quality product. Further, their coding style, framework, and methodology demonstrate a seasoned understanding of front-end technologies. Beyond that, it was incredible to witness a team working so effortlessly and efficiently together. They were highly committed to QA. Everybody hates testing, but these guys did a really thorough job, and obviously took enormous pride in and ownership of the stuff they built.
Are there any areas for improvement?
Its hard to improve on excellence, and Pagepro is a high-class organization. The only fault I can find - and its not a fault of theirs, more of the circumstances - but Redfox and Pagepro are in very different timezones, so it meant that Pagepro began their work day as I should have ended mine. In order to keep things moving, I worked late in the evenings. Like I said, this is not a fault of Pagepro's, but I'd love to see a Pagepro studio open up down here in Australia!
