What was the scope of their involvement?
They developed the front- and backend of our iOS app, which we use for internal analysis of our equipment, to calculate different modes, and generate related reports. In the final stages of the build, we met with them and they showed us everything. Because we had a tight timeline, we did live tests of functions they were adding.
The app is ready now, but we’re continuing with them because we like their approach. We’re discussing the possibility of them adding some cloud, storage, and exchange features to the app.
What is the team composition?
We have a team of between five and eight. We interact primarily with a project manager, who then assigns tasks to the development team. Occasionally, however, others (e.g., interface design) who can describe something in greater detail get involved.
How did you come to work with SENLA, Software Engineering Laboratory?
We did a market scan of IT companies. We checked their capabilities, the number of employees, and their references. We chose them because they had the best price and timing.
After the initial offer, my German colleagues and I visited their offices to review the technical requirements and team capabilities. After we did a digital audit, their team updated the offer based on our requirements and advised us on the interface.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in July 2017 and the partnership is ongoing.
