How did vm.pl perform from a project management standpoint?
vm.pl's team is constantly learning, which has happened during our collaboration as well. Their project management skills weren't as good when we started working together. But, later on, vm.pl introduced a Scrum master and started working according to the Agile methodology. This has paid off, so we've been more satisfied with their project management and communication skills. One of vm.pl's managers is constantly in touch with us.
What did you find most impressive about vm.pl?
vm.pl's team is very flexible and can react quickly to what is happening in our market. They've stayed up-to-date with technology evolutions, suggesting improvements for our requirements.
Are there any areas vm.pl could improve?
vm.pl is a small company and our impression is that they work from one order to the next. This means that, if there's a period of reduced demand, vm.pl can have a problem. In our recent project upgrading our assessment system, vm.pl needed to employ more programmers. I think those programmers were likely let go after the work ended. In terms of becoming a stable company, vm.pl has some progress to make.
