Introduce your business and what you do there.
I’m the director of software engineering at a company that is developing medical device software.
What challenge were you trying to address with Sonatafy Technology?
I was looking for a reliable software developer to help us deliver quality and secure software in time because we were working on different projects.
What was the scope of their involvement?
Sonatafy is working on developing a secure and compliant API database for our software, as well as anything cloud-based related to it. Initially, we provided them with the specifications, and now, we’re working on developing the software itself. This software is focused on user management. Thus, among the work that Sonatafy has done, we’ve had them build our deployment pipelines, our login process, and our archiving system, as well as a system for ordering and completing blood panel tests. As this is a medical piece of software, users can log into our system securely and anonymously. For frontend development, Sonatafy has used React, and for backend development, they’ve used Node.js. Additionally, they’ve used PostgreSQL for the database and Kubernetes for container orchestration.
What is the team composition?
I’ve worked with Sonatafy’s CTO, a team lead, a full-stack developer, and a designer, and we’re on track to hire more people from their team around November 2021.
How did you come to work with Sonatafy Technology?
I had previously engaged with Sonatafy in a different company, so I had previous experience working with them. However, we still launched an RFP, and they responded to it and met all of our criteria. Regardless of this previous experience, we were also revising every proposal that we got. After we vetted the companies that met our criteria, budget, and goals in terms of deliverables, we decided to move forward with Sonatafy in good faith. We felt that they would go above and beyond to complete our project, and they were always the quickest to respond.
How much have you invested with them?
I don’t have the exact numbers, but we’ve spent around a couple of hundred thousand dollars.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working around September 2021, and our engagement is ongoing.

How did Sonatafy Technology perform from a project management standpoint?
Sonatafy is always upfront if there are some tasks that they won’t be able to fulfill, and if this happens, they give us options. They always look for solutions to our problems, and so far, they’ve held their part of our agreement. Overall, their work is very well done and in an agile way. Initially, we had an extensive planning phase where we met from one to multiple hours a day. We still have daily stand-ups where they provide us with updates, but they take around 30 minutes now. Additionally, we have a sprint planning meeting every two weeks.
What did you find most impressive about them?
I’ve worked with other development agencies in the US, and their prices are usually high. However, Sonatafy offers a very good price. Additionally, they have excellent availability due to the time zone they work in. Finally, they went above and beyond for my previous project, which is what I wanted from day one, and it is what I’ve seen so far.
Are there any areas they could improve?
People can always do things better, but we’re in the early stages still, so I don’t have any constructive criticism. However, I know that we will see improvements in their work, process, and communication.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Give them a call, talk about your project, listen to them, and see if it works for you
