Do you have any statistics or metrics on the project?
I don't have any metrics to share on this project. We don't have any system feedback that would correlate to any feedback that Sentia would have.
Are you satisfied with their performance?
Sentia was on budget, which was great. However, they were not quite on time, because they have a number of projects at one time– 14 right now. It's more about how we fit into their schedule. Overall, we are very happy with our partnership.
What differentiates Sentia from other partners?
The Sentia team is very good at building internal capability. We got funding last month, and we're transitioning out of Sentia, only using them on a project basis. What they've enabled us to do is collocate with them, so that we're able to transition the work to our developers that we've hired.
What advice would you give to future clients of theirs?
The client needs to pay for the project management. I have a project management background, so I'm able to manage the build, dependency, and critical path. But, if that was a non-PM [project manager] or non-technology person doing it, they'd have issues.
Is there any area that you think they could improve upon?
I think that their project management could be better, but their work is good.
