What was the scope of their involvement?
The portal allows users to create and edit ads, run campaigns, and review the results through dashboards. Functionally, it’s similar to Google Ads, but it uses a different type of dataset to target people.
Our teams developed both parts simultaneously. We worked together on a daily basis to keep the APIs synchronized.
What is the team composition?
The team included a mix of people from both our companies. We contributed a project manager and some developers. The entire entire frontend development team was from Simply Technologies. Their project manager was our main contact in the beginning.
We also had an escalation contact in case anything went wrong. We scaled up from one to three developers, then started to downgrade again. Gradually, we hope to take frontend development in-house.
How did you come to work with Simply Technologies?
We had a great initial discussion. I liked both what they were doing and the people at their company. I felt it made sense to start a collaboration.
Simply Technologies even offered us two weeks of free service so we could try them out and ensure everything they did met our expectations.
What is the status of this engagement?
We worked together for almost four months, from September–December 2018, or from November 2018 to January 2019.
