What was the scope of their involvement?
We have worked with Boldare from the very beginning, and hadn’t had previous company branding. They designed our collateral, and also coded those designs.
During the last few months, we have been working on rebranding and redesigning our full corporate web page. We’re doing this in a continuous deployment, so, at the end of every sprint, we have a live result. We were aiming to obtain the biggest business values, and weren’t working on particular features. I have tried to give developers as much creative freedom as possible, which was useful both for them and for me.
There was a particular high-risk moment, namely combining our custom registration system with webpage registration and payment portals like PayPal. We had 3 very complex, fragile systems which needed to be combined into a single sales funnel for the Brass Willow professional scrum services. It was a difficult and risky job, and one which Boldare delivered excellently.
During our 3-year collaboration, our team included up to 6 people. It’s not always obvious who is counted as part of the team in a scrum process. We worked with a business product owner, a scrum master, 2 developers, and 1 UX designer. We hired Boldare because they offer teams, so there was no one liaising the communication with our resources. We had a very good graphic and UX designer, and it was good to work with someone who knew the project and whose professional skills I very much valued, but it was mainly Boldare’s decision of who was sent to us.
In the very beginning of our first release, around 4 months ago, there was a change of 1 team member, which was motivated by his health state more than anything else. Apart from this, Boldare’s team has been stable.
How did you come to work with Boldare?
They were the best web design company we could get a hold of in Poland. There were some other groups under consideration, but we chose Boldare based on their experience as well as their working process, agility, and flexibility, combined with the very high-quality work they do.
How much have you invested with Boldare?
I don’t know what the cost of our first iteration was. The second one had a cost of 80,000 Polish Zloty. [$21,000]
What is the status of this engagement?
The first version of our web page was made 3 years ago. I wasn’t an employee of the company at that time, so I don’t know how much time it took. We have been working on our new redesign for the last 4-5 months.
