Feedback summary: 

Thanks to Techstern Solutions regimented process and driven work-force, the solution is ready to launch. They subordinated business concerns to providing on-time delivery, and never had to be told something twice. Their experience and personal service have them positioned well for future work.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CTO of Edukapark Educational Solutions. We offer an online, multi-lingual, workflow-based school management system. It operates mainly in the EMEA region, offering school and institutional management services

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Techstern Solutions?

We needed to develop a cloud-based, SaaS system.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to improve our outreach to potential new customers.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

The project required a spectrum of skills including cloud-solutions, modern web development technologies, and mobile systems. We were also looking for someone with experience in the development technologies we were going to use. We found Techstern through a professional services organization.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

Techstern took our initial architectural documents and business requirements and provided us with recommendations, in terms what cloud technologies to consume and how to set up, scale, and enhance our original design. Once we agreed on initial plans, they delivered the project's source code, a web UI, and backend, mobile apps and database systems.

What was the team composition?

We hired the following from Techstern: a .NET and web technologies senior architect, two .NET senior developers, a senior Xamarin architect, a senior software test engineer, and a project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

We’ve achieved timely delivery on our requirements and the system is ready to go. Techstern will be with us again soon to handle maintenance of the existing system and development of the next versions.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Techstern arranged project management and it was extremely efficient. We got detailed information on every resource, including how much time they were spending on each issue, coupled with their assignment to the rest of the items on the backlog. We never had to repeat a request for a bug, code change, or optimization. It’s always been done in the timelines they proposed.

The project manager was our main point of contact for daily progress reports. The team chased daily, weekly and milestone targets while following agile principles and working with a geographically distributed team. Throughout the project, Techstern’s founder was personally involved to ensure a quality delivery and oversaw some higher-level, architectural aspects of the system.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The founder has created an impressive team and has built a friendly and motivated work environment, which shines through their work and when they engage with their customers. I was impressed by their sincere and professional attitude and willingness to deal with business after they deliver.

We established trust from the start and they never fell short of their promises. We’ve benefited from the architects' extensive experience, and their developers delivered great value around timely, disciplined responses.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

I want to see them build an even larger company and spread out geographically, but they need to display their portfolio and show off their skill-set better on their website and LinkedIn. There’s a huge customer base that can benefit from their professional attitude and technical skill set. They have the business acumen and motivation to deliver on the largest software architectures.

Techstern is responsive and delivers exactly what’s required. Their work is high-quality with few bugs or issues. A willingness to adapt to changing timelines and budgets makes Techstern a reliable and understanding partner.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CTO at an educational company that develops solutions for K-12 and universities. We have content development, e-learn resources, online CMS [content management system] and LMS [learning management system] management, and student information systems. We’ve been providing various services for 17 years.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Techstern Solutions?

We needed development help with numerous projects.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We gave Techstern software requirements, specifications, and documents. They then gave me the project timelines, how many developers would be required, and what their positions were.

Techstern did complete front- and backend development, including the mobile app development. All of our projects were based on Agile, and a couple were on iOS and Android platforms. Techstern supported all of the technologies.

They develop a lot of applications and curriculum, working on large projects over a couple of years. They’ve developed our various websites and have a complete team of developers for Android, iOS, Windows, and web. They continue to fulfill all of our requirements.

What is the team composition?

We work with Bhanu (Managing Director, Techstern Solutions) and also have a dedicated business development manager who handles all of our requirements. He passes it onto the management and developers, communicating all the requirements and budgeting. When there’s something urgent, we talk directly to the developers—they’re responsive and fix the bugs.

How did you come to work with Techstern Solutions?

We found them on Upwork. They initially did a small project to develop some ePUBS and HTML based content for an ICT curriculum. The development was fast, and the quality was good, so we continued the relationship and gave them a couple of big projects.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent over $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in March 2016, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They delivered exactly what we expected. We haven’t found any quality issues, and they’re right on par with the requirements.

How did Techstern Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

Our team lists bugs on GitLab, and the developers fix them immediately. There’s a time difference, but they support us whenever we need them. The official communication is through email, and we use Zoom or GoToMeeting for conferences.

They don’t have any issues with delivering projects on time. We sometimes miss deadlines, but they’re supportive and understanding. They’re also flexible with budget. We keep a 10%-15% buffer for the requirement changes, and they’re okay with that.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re available when we need, and their communication is good. They’re always online and respond quickly. The quality of the work is good. We’re happy that most of the projects are ongoing and their developers know how to work the project.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could improve on the testing side. They need to put more focus on it.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Their quality is good. If they can’t do it within a certain budget, they’ll let you know. Don’t force them to go with the lower budget because it won’t be feasible for them. They’re committed and supportive.
