BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Heading up business development at the most recognized sales engagement platform and an early stage founder of a startup company ThirstySprout is helping me build.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire ThirstySprout?

I've used ThirstySprout to help me integrate our companies software with some of our clients as well as have them build out an MVP of a product idea I've come up with. In both cases they've done a great job!

What were your goals for this project?

In both cases I was looking for a trusted partner who took complete end to end project ownership and was able to deliver on time and on budget.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Client referral.

Describe the project in detail.

I hired ThirstySprout last year to help me find the best coders available for my project. From the hiring process to finding and working with the best Developers for my project, everything has been amazing. I would continue working with them!

What was the team composition?

Project manager/owner 1 frontend developer 1 backend developer 1 devops

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

They have always worked on time and on budget and most of their estimations were fairly accurate which is often times hard to do!

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Great communication and easy to follow process for all the stakeholders throughout the project.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They're honest and direct. If something can't be done, they will not over commit just to disappoint. I have found this to be a great trait to have when you're looking for a partner and have big deadlines and large budgets on the line.

Are there any areas for improvement?

It would help if they had a platform to review all the resources they have available instead of going back and worth with resumes.
