What was the scope of their involvement?
I shared my requirements with Radixweb, and we worked together to scope out the project, assign a team of resources, plan weekly timelines and milestones, establish a reporting system, and decide on the technology to use for the build.
They started with the logo. Radixweb provided several options, and I picked the one I liked best. Then, they created a few more iterations to incorporate all of my feedback. I showed them my basic PowerPoint sketches for the user interface, and they turned those into mock-ups. Once we finalized the screens, their team started development. Radixweb integrated a few APIs with the tool. One of them syncs the app with our website to facilitate continuous data uploading and downloading for our users.
What is the team composition?
I worked with four different teams from Radixweb throughout the project. I interfaced with one or two people for each phase—logo, iOS development, Android development, and web development. There was a project manager for each component.
How did you come to work with Radixweb?
I searched for developers on Google and reached out to 12 companies scattered around the globe. In my first interactions with Radixweb, they seemed willing and eager to work with me, which helped me make my decision. They seemed like a nice team, so I was confident in moving forward with them.
How much have you invested with them?
They charged an hourly fee of $25. In total, we spent close to $40,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We worked on this project from April–October 2018. We paused for a bit after establishing the scope so that I could gather the budget. We were also scheduled to finish sooner, but I came up with some new ideas and requested additional changes, which added another month or two of work.
