Auckland, New Zealand
What challenge were you trying to address with Arcanys?
We needed a cost-effective way to scale our IT team.
What was the scope of their involvement?
What is the team composition?
They initially provided three developers, but we went down to two.
How did you come to work with Arcanys
We wanted a cost-effective offshore partner located in the Philippines because they overlapped with our time zone. We did an extensive search, doing email introductions and phone interviews with about six or seven different organizations. We then did an in-person visit in the Philippines to conduct a deep dive into the businesses. We chose Arcanys because of their skill set, web presences, and client references.
How much have you invested with them?
We spend about $10,000 a month.
What is the status of this engagement?
We partnered in December 2017, and the work is ongoing.
What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
Our partnership allows us to move faster and enables our dev team to implement solutions quicker. We’ve become more rapid in our build and release process because of them.
How did Arcanys perform from a project management standpoint?
Overall, we’re happy with their level of communication, documentation, and responsiveness. We had to let one developer go because their work wasn’t what we expected, but Arcanys helped make the transition. They’re flexible and allow us to adjust their involvement based on our needs. We mainly communicate via Skype, email, and WhatsApp.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Unlike other firms, Arcanys is a genuine tech partner, not just a resource provider. They also have a payment structure that keeps them engaged in our projects instead of locking us into a partnership for a long time.
Are there any areas they could improve?
As they grow, they should continue to focus on being a tech partner with advanced skill levels.
