What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
Teamo has had a huge impact on our business, on the most obvious level simply because we wouldn’t have been able to develop our product without their help. In addition to that, the constancy of their service and the level of knowledge and they have developed with our platform has been hugely beneficial to the work.
In terms of impact in general, the model they’ve provided allows us to test and iterate and build and react in a way that we wouldn’t be able to do if we were outsourcing or working with a larger company. The quality of their work is incredibly high, and the consistency of being able to rely on them is an incredible added value.
How did Teamo perform from a project management standpoint?
Their project management work has been strong. We always stay on schedule, which can be difficult with development because of how unpredictable it is, by trying to stay as proactive rather than reactive as possible. Again, Teamo is just incredibly reliable and transparent, so we always know where we are at on any given project regardless of whether we have delays.
Communication has been strong despite the time difference, mostly because of the effort that they put into prioritizing keeping everyone on the same page. We have standup meetings in the morning in order to keep them in the loop, and they do a really good job of making themselves available in case of emergency situations.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Their thought leadership is really what sets them apart as a company. It’s rare that you meet people with really good development skills who can also think through the business issues and goals and really deliver something that’s going to solve the core challenges you’re facing every time.
Are there any areas they could improve?
Some members of their team are stronger at communicating than others, and some people are more comfortable sharing their views. I do think it would be beneficial to get every developer on their team to the point where they were able to share their perspective and bring that extra bit of experience to the table.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
If you approach the engagement as a collaborative partner rather than just someone to develop your requirements, you will get a lot more value out of the project.
