Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?
We have a great product. I love how easy it is to demonstrate to potential clients. You don't have to be an IT whizz or anything. It is very easy for a client to ultimately go into the back-end office and input the data needed in order for them to put it to use. They were right on time, if not ahead of time, when they finally delivered the final product.
I don't have any measurable successes because we are a startup and still in the process of getting this business up and running. Pyspring gave me a platform where I can demonstrate how the system could actually enhance a client’s supply chain security. I’m now in the process of engaging our potential market. Currently, 10 clients are using the system. It’s been positive in the sense that I have engaged investors as well as potential clients.
How did pyspring perform from a project management standpoint?
The communication was very fluid. Even though we’re in 2 different countries, the communication remained constant through Skype and other types of media. We were constantly discussing the project, including any shortcomings or any potential modifications I needed.
What did you find most impressive about pyspring?
Again, I would say that they were particularly good at maintaining an open channel of communication. It didn't matter what time I would contact them. Obviously, I wasn't calling them at midnight or anything, but we were outside business hours. I also appreciated knowing that I didn't have to worry that somebody was going to hold my app hostage. In my line of work, I’m very familiar with security issues and that really was one of my biggest concerns. That’s not a concern I have with pyspring. From the get-go, they knew exactly what the requirements were when they put together the contract. I had no surprises whatsoever. If I did have any surprises, it was when I gave them new requirements. They were extremely accommodating. What I would have considered a challenge was treated like a normal issue. These guys are typical of the IT world but extremely intelligent in putting something together from what a client conveys verbally.
Are there any areas pyspring could improve?
No, I personally can't think of anything that I would ask them to do differently.
