Feedback summary: 

Despite some workflow delays, Softengi delivered a system that met all requirements and is now in a testing stage. The team experienced some personnel turnover but maintained an impressive level of camaraderie.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a product manager/owner of Nectain, a global company providing end-to-end spend management solutions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Softengi?

Based on our experience with sourcing and procurement management, functional transformation, and business perspective, our team concluded that the market urgently needed an end-to-end system responding to all procurement issues.

We hired Softengi to create a digital procurement ecosystem that aligned with the concept we envisioned.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to create an innovative and effective procurement system.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We believed that outsourcing the work would be the most effective and reasonable solution for our company. We hired Softengi because they had the required experience and expertise in web development.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We presented Softengi with our idea of the procurement system we wanted to build. We relied on their team for UI/UX development, front- and backend development, and QA testing. They offered cost-effective ways to implement our desired features.

What was the team composition?

In addition to a project manager, we worked with a system architect, backend developers, frontend developers, UI/UX designers, and QA testers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

We’ve recently launched our first pilot product six months after the start of development. We requested several customization requirements, and Softengi successfully delivered work that met our expectations.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

In general, they managed the project well. The development would stall at times when we saw personnel changes in their team.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The staff members exhibit an admirable team spirit.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Their development process strictly depends on one system architect, which can create a bottleneck and delay other development tasks.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The in-house team is happy with the quality of the code and expanded Softengi’s scope of work, putting them on the same sprint schedule. Softengi has met all expectations, while their proactive approach and ability to identify potential issues with the prototypes earned them trust.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm a VP of product at a B2B software as a service provider.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Softengi?

We had constrained resources internally, so we were looking for a good option to augment our internal development team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They work closely with our in-house team on the same sprint schedule, doing a lot of the development work in React. We provide them with the wireframes and, in many cases, a fully functional UI prototype. They're working off of the prototypes and our shared Jira account where they can see all the backlog items.

What is the team composition?

We have one main point of contact and they've assigned a team of 3–4 developers and a QA person to us.

How did you come to work with Softengi?

Someone from our company had worked with them previously and recommended them.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent over $100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in February 2018 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They do quality work, so we plan to continue working with them. They're also great at identifying potential issues with the UI prototypes that we haven't even seen in the backlog.

How did Softengi perform from a project management standpoint?

We use scrum methodology. We started with an overall project-based approach with them, so we had a specific set of deliverables. After the first project, we decided to make them part of the sprint, so now they’re basically part of our team and take on more tasks. In addition to Jira, we use Shared Instance, weekly video conferences, and email to communicate.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We've been very pleased with the quality of their work and their responsiveness.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can't think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Give them as much information about the project as you can. We shared our backlog, wireframes, and UI prototypes with them, so they could see what we were trying to do before we even started our development efforts.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

During their 15-year involvement, Softengi has integrated seamlessly with internal personnel, extending capabilities with their technical skills and collaborative focus. The team’s forthright communication, exceptional output, and attentive service continue to drive success. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the CEO of Volia Software, which is based in Houston, Texas. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Softengi?

Softengi is a sister company of Volia based in Kiev, Ukraine. We primarily do custom development for web and mobile, among other tasks. We use some of Softengi’s staff for certain projects based on their skill levels and our needs. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Their staff provides quality assurance, architecture, and custom development on occasion, primarily for weaving web technologies such as .NET. We have been using Softengi’s staff for about 15 years. Some of their resources have been involved in our projects for many years.

What is the team dynamic?

We've worked with dozens to just a handful of their team, depending on the project. At this time, we have a few of their people working on different projects.

How did you come to work with Softengi?

When Volia was founded, Softengi was already in existence. Primarily, they started with markets in Eastern Europe and then expanded to serving substantial U.S. customers. Our relationship is complementary to our work at Volia, so we don’t step on each other’s toes.

How much have you invested in them?

We have spent well over $1,000,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement started in August 2003, and the relationship is still ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The Softengi staff has been of the highest quality. There are no issues, and each person is talented. Year after year, their services are renewed by our clients. Their staff members have grown with us and our clients as well. Essentially, they are just an extension of our organization at this point.

How did Softengi perform from a project management standpoint?

Since our companies work closely together, Volia manages the projects and staff members on our team; however, we do work with their executive leadership. The communication has been tremendous. Igor [Account/Business Development Manager, Softengi] is our primary contact, and he and I started as business colleagues and have become friends. We communicate primarily through email, as well as through Skype and Slack.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Softengi does exactly what they say they will. To me, in the business world, this is exceptional and important.

Are there any areas they could improve?

From our standpoint, there’s nothing they need to fix.
