What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
Their team has been awesome, and my staff absolutely wants to continue working with them. The team’s productivity is through the roof—they’re can get things done. I’ve always been happy with their pacing on projects. Lastly, they’re strategic thinkers. A few of them have stepped out on a leadership level to help us think about our architecture and business decisions. They’ve been very thoughtful, and I appreciate people on my team showing entrepreneurial attributes.
How did Rocket Farm Studios perform from a project management standpoint?
While they’re technically contractors, they act like they are fully committed to our team. Even if it means putting in time after work, they’ll accomplish tasks and hit deadlines. They also are able to think ahead and encourage us to structure their time to maximize predictability in the development. I couldn’t be happier with their project management.
What did you find most impressive about them?
The development space has moved from smaller, independent shops to larger, less independent companies. Many agencies have been recently bought out by large consulting firms. They’re small and homegrown, able to build close relationships with us. The owner there is hands-on, thoughtful, and caring. We meet for lunch monthly, and he is always checking in with the team. Our team feels very supported by them.
Are there any areas they could improve?
Of course, they’re not as big as some of the other shops in the area. While that is good in many ways, they still do have a smaller network. So, large projects may take longer to scale than with other companies.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Lean into the relationship because they’re caring people that want to do well for your business. Reinforce that they’re a part of the team when they’re working with you. Additionally, make sure you have clear requirements at the beginning of the project. That will be very valuable to them.
