Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?
The highest compliment I can think of for Simbirsoft is to say that they felt like they were the part of our team, even though they weren’t a part of our company. They’re honorable. They keep in touch, follow up with us, and give us updates on their progress. I found them easy to work with, honest and direct about their abilities. We have a good and supportive working relationship. They come up with creative ideas and help us troubleshoot problems.
How was project management arranged and how effective was it?
We started out without a fixed budget. We were developing our product according to client’s needs and ideas in real-time, day by day. Our best practice was everyday meetings. We had calls with a team, discussed ideas, solutions and problems.
It is important to point out that all of the specialists we worked with demonstrated a high level of expertise and responsibility. That's why we just needed to set tasks and check their readiness and SimbirSoft did the rest.
What did you find most impressive about this company?
Simbirsoft team is keen on work, developers often offer interesting ideas to improve and optimize their work, and as result we could optimize final costs of development.
Are there any areas where they can improve?
I can’t think of any way SimbirSoft could improve. I've been genuinely impressed with their work, their approach to business, and their willingness to work with their clients. The only thing I can suggest is to be more flexible with the type and composition of teams. Sometimes their insistence on having defined structure of the team, probably made out of the best intentions, felt a little bit inflexible.
