What was the scope of their involvement?
We got in touch with VAIRIX 3 years ago to help with the web platform, and the following year, we updated it to a mobile app as well. The applications were developed on Ruby on Rails, Android, and iOS.
Since we sell furniture, we wanted to be able to access the backend in order to submit new products, prices, content, and customizations per client. We needed to allow every user that accessed our platform the ability to modify their furniture based on size, colors, etc. Then, the user had to be able to submit their order and the calculator would come up with a price based on their customizations.
What is the team dynamic?
I was personally in touch with 3 or 4 people across meetings but there were some changes throughout the project.
How did you come to work with VAIRIX Software?
We started working with another company but they weren’t able to meet our deadlines and requirements. We looked around again for Ruby on Rails specialists within the country, especially since there are a lot of developers for this technology here. We searched for a vendor that could work with our tight deadline and that’s how we found VAIRIX.
How much have you invested in them?
We invested around $10,000–$50,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in March 2014 and launched the platform in June of the same year. They still provide maintenance.
