What was the scope of their involvement?
We’ve worked together on projects for various business cases. ZenDev ABimproved our homepage with Laravel. They also developed a more advanced platform that allows us to perform complex functionalities.
Our team handles the design internally. We send sketches to show the team our desired look and feel. ZenDev AB performs all the coding and fixes every error. They’ve helped us build standard websites using HTML and CSS as well as ones with frameworks like Angular. A specific project they supported was for what we call a “BLM portal.”
We’re currently working on our biggest collaboration so far. The project is for a Swedish company that helps people create smart homes for elders. ZenDev AB is helping us implement live indoor tracking with face recognition and IoT sensors. A web dashboard offers access to the entire system. Recently, we started creating a mobile app for iOS and Android.
What is the team composition?
ZenDev AB has grown considerably since we first met them. At first, we were only connected with Senad (CTO, ZenDev AB) and Nikola (CEO, ZenDev AB). We’re still mostly in touch with Senad, but now we also have a dedicated project manager.
I also have the option to speak directly with the programmers when we need to fix issues like a software bug. We communicate with every level of their team, more or less. Now that we’re running our most significant project yet with them, many people are involved from both sides.
How did you come to work with ZenDev AB?
A member of our company went to university with someone from ZenDev AB. We contacted them about working together.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent slightly above $50,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with ZenDev AB at the end of 2017. Our collaboration is ongoing. The deadline for our current project, the largest one so far, is May 2019.
