The Review
Feedback summary: 

Sprinterra’s developers were easy and pleasant to work with. They brought valuable recommendations and practices, and were consistently willing to learn and engage in new work. Their trained project managers were effective, but when the position was backfilled, there were less successful results.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I was a manager for a financial services consulting firm. We did consulting services and operations on behalf of various sized clients and also built in-house business applications to support those consulting practices.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Sprinterra?

We worked with them on several projects to help build business applications. We had our own in-house software development, but often we would need extra development support. It usually depended on the project schedule and budget.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We were a mostly Microsoft and .NET environment, and all of our business applications were web-based. They were project management business workflow applications that supported different consulting lines. Sprinterra worked with our in-house software engineers using C# and .NET to build out the functionality of multiple applications.

What is the team composition?

For the first few years we worked together, we had a dedicated project manager and as we began to develop more projects in-house it became a combination of individuals that augmented teams on our side. After the initial project, we had subsequent project managers from their side.

How did you come to work with Sprinterra?

They were already in place when I came onboard, but I believe Sprinterra’s CEO had worked with the company for a previous engagement.

How much have you invested with them?

The price varied monthly based on how much support we needed. At the highest, we were paying about $200,000 a month, and at the lowest, it was less than $50,000 a month.

What is the status of this engagement?

They started in early 2012. I believe they phased down how much they worked together in the first or second quarter of 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

There aren’t metrics supporting their work because they were a supporting part of the team, and also because measuring results and ROI wasn’t a high priority for the company at that time. We determined success by seeing how functionality was built out to meet market demand.

How did Sprinterra perform from a project management standpoint?

The project manager we had during the initial project, was very strong and brought a lot of helpful recommendations and practices. He facilitated effective team processes. After he left, Sprinterra backfilled that position with someone that wasn’t as strong. We struggled with that person for about a year until we discussed the negative impacts with Sprinterra. After that, they replaced that person with someone who was a better fit for us. In general, the people from Sprinterra that have been trained in project management were strong and complementary to what we needed.

We used Jira as our project management tool, and the Sprinterra project managers were fluent in that and administered some of the boards we were using. We generally communicated over Skype, instant messaging, or phone conferences. We also used email for high-level summaries. The ease of communication varied based on individual language skills, but overall it was decent for an offshore company.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The people Sprinterra recruited were higher quality than what I’ve dealt with before. They were easy to work with, willing to learn, motivated to work, and committed to understanding our business goals. They were easy and pleasant to work with.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The only thing that sticks out is the period when we weren’t getting the best project management with the transition in that position. They were slow to resolve that issue, so we were struggling for a little over a year with someone that wasn’t fulfilling the responsibilities of the role. They could definitely be more proactive in resolving issues that are coming from high-level positions.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I recommend conducting your own interviews for each individual that will potentially join the teams. Also be sure to have regular check-ins on how things are going at a high level to hold them accountable to the quality.
