How did you select this vendor?
They were featured on a website (99firms) listing the top 99 software development companies in 2019, and out of all the companies listed they impressed us the most. The services they offered were exactly what we needed and they had an impressive portfolio of case-studies.
When we reached out to them for a quote they were responsive, professional, friendly, and detailed which we definitely appreciated. My business partner and I had spoken to their team and were blown away at how interested they were in our project. They were very attentive to the needs of the task, providing useful feedback along the way.
Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.
We started in January and in 5 weeks had an Alpha version of our prototype. They had worked on the SBC's API first, configuring the connections from the SBC to the different modules i.e. camera, microphone, speaker, relays, etc. In the process, they also developed a mobile application to connect to the SBC.
Once completed, in the next 5 weeks they established the cloud-based service and made a connection to the mobile application. This enabled motion capture video storage and mobile notifications. Effectively establishing VoIP capability and turning our SBC into an IoT device.
During the whole process, they provided us with detailed documentation of every step that was being taken and what was completed. We had weekly meetings with specific tasks and deadlines, all of which they executed seamlessly. They also would provide critical feedback that essentially sharpened our vision for the product.
What was the team composition?
Besides my business partner and I, we had a team of 4-5 people from SaM Solutions. They provided us with a project manager who was totally on top of our project and the details concerning our deadlines.
There was an app developer who worked with the team as well as cloud configuration. Our programmer was always available to answer questions for us and was readily available. The SaM Solutions team was the most professional team we've worked with so far with impeccable work ethics.
