The Logic of Multiple Subcontractors in IT Projects: Considerations and Management Insights - Case Study Furgotetka
1. Experience and Expertise: When selecting a subcontractor, it is essential to investigate their industry history, references, and level of experience. It is important for the subcontractor to possess the necessary technical skills and specialized knowledge to collaborate effectively on the IT project.
While considering the subcontractor's experience and expertise, it is important to recognize that different entities may have different strengths. Therefore, it is worthwhile to identify key areas of the project and find subcontractors who specialize in those domains.
For example, if the project requires the development of a mobile application, it is advisable to seek a subcontractor with experience in that specific area and possessing programming skills specific to mobile app development. This approach allows for finding a specialist who will focus on the relevant technologies and tools necessary to achieve the project's goals.
One popular source of references for IT subcontractors is the platform Clutch. Clutch is an online platform that gathers reviews and ratings from clients who have utilized the services of various technology firms, including IT subcontractors. On the Clutch website, one can find reliable information regarding the quality of services, expertise, timeliness, and overall client satisfaction.
2. Cultural Compatibility and Values: It is crucial for a subcontractor to align with the organization's culture and share its values. A harmonious collaboration among different project entities facilitates communication and ensures a better understanding of goals and expectations.
3. Service Quality: When evaluating a potential subcontractor, it is important to pay attention to the quality of their previous work. Analyzing the quality of services provided helps assess whether the subcontractor will meet the expectations of the IT project.
Assessing the quality of a subcontractor's services can be done in various ways. Clients can evaluate the quality of a product from a user's perspective by using an application developed by the company.
Reviewing references and feedback from other clients can also be helpful in assessing the subcontractor's service quality.
BrainForge IT specializes in delivering comprehensive, high-quality services. As experienced professionals, we have earned recognition from clients for our skills and professionalism. We have experience in project execution as one of several subcontractors. We have successfully developed mobile and web applications, including e-commerce solutions. Our projects have also involved integrations with various open-source platforms such as Vendure. We are ready to take on challenges in different domains and adapt to unique project requirements.
One example of a successful project, where we applied the principles described in this article, was the development of the "Portmonetka" application for Furgonetka company. Using the React.js library, we created an application that enables the completion of online purchases across multiple e-commerce platforms. As one of the subcontracting teams, we were responsible for the frontend development, which interfaced with the backend developed by another team.
Maintaining regular communication and collaboration with the backend team was a crucial aspect of our work. Therefore, in line with our proven methods, we organized frequent meetings to discuss progress, solve problems, and adapt to evolving client requirements.
To facilitate communication, we utilized tools such as Slack and ClickUp. These tools allowed us to exchange information instantly, ask questions, and swiftly resolve any issues. Importantly, our communication involved direct engagement from the individuals responsible for application development (developers), which helped us better understand the client's intentions and meet their expectations in practice.
This example demonstrates that our company has experience in executing projects as one of several subcontractors. We are prepared for effective collaboration, ensuring high-quality products and a thorough understanding of the client's intentions and needs.
Introducing a multi-subcontractor structure in an IT project can be beneficial, but it requires proper preparation and management. When selecting subcontractors, their experience, competencies, cultural compatibility, and values should be taken into account. Effective management of a multi-subcontractor project involves active communication, clear task and responsibility delineation, progress monitoring, and the use of appropriate contracts and regulations.
