My project with Codewave involved migrating a mobile app for time tracking to a cloud based architecture, creating a web-app including admin control center and CMS. The result can be viewed at www.stafftimes.com. The journey from start to go-live took about 9 months: here is me talking through my experience: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-LcvVMCKEs While there were some hiccups along the way (sync reliability, change in staff) which extended the project a bit we overcame each technical challenge in the end and Codewave supported me throughout the journey about API possibilities which greatly enriched my product (e.g. in-app messenger, help center, explainer videos, hotjar) and stuck to the original agreed budget going beyond my expectations. A year later I am now enhancing Staff Times as part of phase 2 (new features > see Staff Times blog) with most of the same team at an attractive hourly rate plan. I have spent a week with the team personally in Bangalore during the go-live, got to know the heads of this start-up, and still today appreciate the personal touch and commitment to excellence.
What do you like most about the company?
Flat structure: one experienced project lead setting deadlines but direct access to designer, mobile and web developers. Direct access to company heads when escalation needed.
What they should improve on?
Having an Offshore Partner always brings some challenges, be it, communication (line disruptions, availability/timezones) or accountability (getting commitment, multiple-projects). Young development team members with only 2-3 years experience requires longer has repercussions where deliverables require more testing involvement from my side.
