What was the scope of their involvement?
We initially worked on customization projects, taking our existing templates and reskinning them for particular clients. Subsequent to that, we’ve engaged with Smart Thinking on a longer-term, larger customer project done from scratch. We have a staff augmentation collaboration but also rely on them for a range of skills. The implementation technologies include HTML, AngularJS, Node.js, MongoDB, PostgreSQL and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
What is the team composition?
We use 11 developers from their team.
How did you come to work with Smart Thinking?
I met their principal years ago when he was doing outreach. We worked on a small project at that time, and, when it came to looking for a provider once more, the established relationship was a factor. Smart Thinking is in a close time zone to ours and they’re cost-competitive, but the cultural workstyle and communication skills offered by this Mexican company made them stand out.
What is the status of this engagement?
Our first project in the current round started in April 2017. We’ve been working with Smart Thinking on an ongoing basis since then.
