What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
The app functioned smoothly and received several hundred downloads. We didn’t bring in as many sales as we wanted, but we got 25 vendors under contract, including several professional sports teams.
How did Supreme Gravity perform from a project management standpoint?
They take initiative and always know what’s going on with the project in terms of observing deadlines or reporting updates. Their team also has a nice balance of skills and strengths: one developer is a bit more client-facing and the other is more database-facing. Additionally, they offer sharp technical skills and strong customer service.
Since they were local, we tried to meet in person as often as possible and also kept in touch by phone and email. They were always available to meet our needs.
What did you find most impressive about them?
I liked their project management style and competence. You’d be hard-pressed to find someone of comparable skill in their price range. They were fluent in English, intelligent, locally accessible, and readily available, which made for an excellent total package.
Are there any areas they could improve?
Their approach is very straightforward, which might be too blunt for some people.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Before you hire someone, know what you’re building, why, and how it should work. Make sure you’re ready to lead and can speak the language developers use. You don’t have to know how to program, but be familiar with terms like endpoints, data structures, and API. Understand the basics of the architecture, use common sense, and stay on top of communication so the developers can convert your needs effectively.
