How did Dotsquares meet your requirements?
Overall they did an excellent job. As is usual with projects like this, our requirements evolved to an extent as our understanding of the art of the possible evolved, along with seeing how the pages developed and the functionality of the CMS developed. Essentially this was a RAD style development, as we did not start with detailed requirements or system specifications, but it worked very well. There were a couple of occasions when work was agreed to be "out of scope" and additional funding had to be made available, but I was very happy with the willingness to make changes to satisfy our evolving requirements without argument. Slack seemed to work well to enable the detailed cooperation, exchange of information and conference calls that were necessary. Essentially the project was delivered to budget and on time (including the agreed additional work) and we are delighted with the result.
There are some areas that I would work to improve next time, largely around test planning and test results and the go live process (but in the end that proved to be more complex than anyone had anticipated). Defect correction was swiftly carried out, which again was excellent.
What do you value about Dotsquares?
Value for money is excellent.
Willingness to make changes to satisfy our evolving requirements without argument, except for when it was quite clear that work was "out of scope".
