What was the scope of their involvement?
I initially spoke to Shivratan (co-founder & CEO, Xtreem Solution) who walked me through the entire process. He told me what it was going to cost and gave me an idea on the amount of time it would take. Then he gave me a list of all the things that I needed to provide them. I described the sort of website I wanted and the design identity of my company. They sent me a few links to websites and design templates that they thought were the direction I wanted. Once I gave them a shortlist of the ones that I liked, they figured out which one would work best.
Xtreem Solution created a WordPress site using a design template. The homepage features nine images as tiles that take users to the rest of the portfolio images when they click the tiles. I was very specific on the way I wanted the tiles laid out. They linked the website queries to my email address so that any questions come directly to me. They also made sure the site is usable on every kind of device from a computer to a tablet to a phone.
They’re continuing to provide service after the site launched, in case there are any sort of malware issues. They also gave me an instruction sheet for how to change images, add to my blog, and maintain basic things on the backend.
What is the team composition?
I primarily dealt with Dinesh (Senior Business Analyst, Xtreem Solution) as my assigned project manager. I give him the information, and he discusses it with the team. I'm not sure how many other people they had working on the project.
How did you come to work with Xtreem Solution?
I found them through reviews on Upwork. I compared them to a couple of other firms just so I knew that I was hiring the right people. They also sent me examples of work that they've done previously, which helped me make my decision quite easy.
How much have you invested with them?
I spent around $12,000 AUD (approximately $8,650 USD).
What is the status of this engagement?
We worked together between May–July 2018.
