How did you select this vendor?
We wanted to take on only one partner for the project. First of all, we needed a vendor with the right competencies (e.g. product design, UX design, and web development). Their specialization in open source Python was an important asset as well.
The right vendor would implement each of those elements with the entire product development process in mind up until the point of product launch.
Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.
First, The Story presented an action plan and introduced all the team members, their roles in the project, and the communication channels we would be using.
The first stage of the project included the product analysis, an analysis of public finance law compliance, a UX audit, and research into clients’ needs. These audits and analyses allowed us to create objectives for the SaaS redesign.
During the later stages of the project, we merged product creation with UX/UI design and worked out the key visuals. These visuals served as a basis for further web design. The Story created a detailed specification of IT work before they started coding. That way, we managed to shorten the programming time and remained within the budget.
What was the team composition?
The team was comprised of a project manager, a qualitative researcher, a lean manager, a product designer, a lead designer, a UI designer, a web designer, a lead python programmer, a full stack developer, and an AWS consultant.
