How did you select this vendor?
Initially, we considered 6–7 companies from different countries, looking for one that could work in an agile manner with end-to-end expertise regarding firmware and cloud and mobile application development. VOLANSYS offered comprehensive expertise, from prototype design to connected application development and automated product testing and validation. Given that this would be long-term, time and materials engagement, we compared hourly rates. VOLANSYS was one of the most affordable options.
Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.
VOLANSYS helped us develop digital health solutions concentrated on remote patient monitoring, drug adherence, and interconnected point of care/diagnostics devices. Some of the projects included anti-smoking devices and dosage infusion-pump firmware engineering. They also contributed to consumer appliance efforts.
They were required to use a variety of technologies depending on each project’s specific deliverables. For mobile apps, they used Angular 5 for the frontend, Node.JS for the backend, and Python and JMeter for testing. For cloud-based networks of mobile apps, they used AWS and Microsoft Azure. They were also responsible for designing and developing micro-service architectures and third-party app integrations. Some of the projects also necessitated bare-metal programming.
What was the team composition?
Each project team had a different composition, but overall, we worked with embedded software developers, cloud architects, full-stack software developers, mobile application developers, frontend developers, QA engineers, and DevOps specialists. Everyone was very supportive and worked together to meet deadlines and expectations.
