As a funded startup, STRATAFOLIO is accountable to investors and in a position to grow their product, but time and budget management has been key. Far Reach offers STRATAFOLIO external development resources that can be scaled up and down as priorities grow and change. STRATAFOLIO now has in-house developers, and Far Reach helps reduce their risk by spreading product knowledge around and expanding development capabilities.
Far Reach’s tech expertise aligned well with the stack STRATAFOLIO was using (ASP.NET MVC, Microsoft Azure, and SQL Server), so we were able to dive right in, learn the product vision, and start building. We are integrated into the blended project team, which includes the original system architect and STRATAFOLIO’s in-house developers. We work in shared Github and Slack accounts and do blended team sprint planning and retrospectives to plan work and improve processes.
