San Francisco, California, USALocation
The client’s organization was founded just three years ago and had its own in-house development team. The bootstrapped organization needed resources to augment and enhance their existing team – getting a full-fledged, autonomous team – to come in, fastrack their product development, and manage their software operations.
About The Company
The client focuses on providing rapid application development services through a No-code platform. Geared primarily towards Enterprises, the client based in SF, California is a funded startup, having already raised a Series A funding of USD 11.5 Million as of October 2022.
The Tech Stack
The engagement was led by a Technical Project Manager, a Business Analyst, 6 Developers, and 2 Automation QA Experts.
The primary challenge for the client was onboarding a reliable software partner. One who could scale a team on-demand and train new members quickly on the product and the required development.
Additionally, it was pertinent for the software partner to have pre-vetted, experienced developers who could emulate & reflect the user stories in their product deliverables.
One additional factor was that of the team management.
The client detested hand-holding and wanted an autonomous team to take care of the end-to-end development. This included addressing and managing feature architecture (case in point, the requirement of a technical project manager), and managing and creating new technical documentation (case in point, the allocation of a business analyst).
The client needed an autonomous team to augment their existing capabilities. Thus the onboarding and the requirement were pretty streamlined – right from the very beginning. Here is the methodology followed by Netsmartz.
Deployment of a Technical product manager and a business analyst to establish the foundation for the project. All the while the Senior resources established the frameworks & milestones for the deliverables, Netsmartz selected and deployed resources for the Development work. This process was kickstarted by the project manager at Netsmartz – and the prevetting and allocation was handled by Netsmartz senior resources.
Management of Resources
Since the team’s work was supposed to be autonomous, the entire ‘resource unit’ allocated managed the processes for the client. The entire scope of the project being based on predefined user stories gave Netsmartz an impetus to drive the Software development. The project manager managed the project direction, ensuring that the deliverable requirement was met, the feature architecture was adhered to and the feasibility of the team and the deployed resources was well-defined.
Additionally, the project manager worked to hold regular SCRUM meetings and manage the deliverables.
Since the client wanted an autonomous team to function on its own, Netsmartz resources played a pivotal role.
From taking ownership of the product to managing new feature rollout, and assuring complete security of the entire product itself.
With our dedicated resources, Appify was able to deploy a full-fledged product for their field operations – which helped them provide market-relevant functionality, save money, and drive utility through their application.
Additionally, Netsmartz enabled Appify to build a team on-demand – thus offering much-needed flexibility in the outsourced engagement.
From selecting candidates to managing feature architecture, and from development & QA to crafting technical documentation – Netsmartz took accord with all the requisites and drove the entire engagement from the beginning to the deployment.
