What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
We have grown from literally zero devices in the field, to upwards of 1,000 since our launch. We’ve been featured in Forbes, CBS Local News, Phoenix Business Journals, among other publications. We’ve also been a part of the plug and play accelerator, working with Silicon Valley investors, basically due to the technology we’ve built, as well as some major partnerships.
How did Teamo perform from a project management standpoint?
They’ve exceeded our expectations. Everything was always communicated clearly and efficiently, and I was never really surprised if there was going to be a delay. I always knew the exact reason why and how to support them in the best way possible. Everything was amazing in that regard. We use Slack, BitBucket, Jira, Sketch, Abstract, and Facebook Workplace.
What did you find most impressive about them?
We value their dedication. They’re located in Pakistan, and we’re in Phoenix, so that’s a 12-hour time difference, which can be tricky. They’re always willing to work around that time difference to make sure that the product would be delivered on time. We have open communication channels for hours at a time during the day so we wouldn’t have to play phone tag all the time.
Are there any areas they could improve?
We did have a ramp-up period with them, where we learned a lot about the project management cycle and communication. It was 4-5 months where we were figuring out how that relationship would work. As we started to communicate more through Slack and other channels, that process got a lot smoother.
