This Product had to be evolved into the second generation
for any meaningful industrial use. The ability to import and export in bulk and automate the many manual steps needed for configuration were just necessary to simplify & reduce the end-user efforts.
The team worked in a fixed scope mode to drastically cut down on the manual steps. Prototypes needed for technology selection were achieved in lightning speed. Change in the scope was accommodated well. A decent amount of end-user data validation was achieved.
The Product Manager was able to achieve his goal of introducing automation to make the end-user's life simple. The team was able to deliver within the time constraints laid out.
For the last three years, I have been working, very closely with the WonderBiz team, on one of our Product Development Programs and have thoroughly enjoyed working with them.
We have been working on some very complex projects and integrations that demand, a high level of technical ability, quick turn-around time and quality of the highest levels.
I have found the WonderBiz team to be enthusiastic, responsive & professional to take ownership of the work they do. They understand the work domain quickly and not only deliver projects on time & with highest levels of quality, but their overall engagement during the project execution is just amazing.
As a example, in one of our projects, where the application performance NFRs (Non-Functional Requirements) were crucial, the WonderBiz team had come up with many different alternative solutions. They went ahead and prototyped all of these, to demonstrate the approaches, pointing out their pros and cons. This enabled the Product Management team to take informed decisions and invest appropriately.
Instances like these continue to keep me amazed at the commitment that the WonderBiz team demonstrates in their pursuit of Customer Delight.
