What was the scope of their involvement?
They started out with the website build, which was done in WordPress. After we saw their frontend capabilities during that project, we started discussing the idea of them being our software partners for longer-term projects.
We want to develop a SaaS digital asset management platform, as well as a tailored parked image library. Everything is written in PHP. We started with the core infrastructure for all our different software suites and then built everything from the prototype, through to the final launch.
Two out of our three software suites are up and running, with clients and paying customers. The first sprint for the digital asset management software lasted three months. We then progressed with the image library and spent roughly nine months on it before delivering the first fully functional version.
What is the team composition?
The first core team was three to four developers and two project leads. My main lead has been Vedran (COO, Q Software). We’ve had a couple of their lead developers working with us, Ivan (Senior Developer, Q Software) and Harry (Head of Engineering, Q Software).
How did you come to work with Q Software?
They reached out to our CEO looking for Norwegian clients due to their past successes with them. We had a different software developer in Poland that we had worked with, but we weren’t that happy. We did a small project with Q that worked well, so moved onto the larger one.
How much have you invested with them?
We spent 100,000 euros (approximately $115,000 USD).
What is the status of this engagement?
We worked together from August 2016–August 2017. They still help with support.
