The Audio Transcription – Collaborating with Technology Rivers
My name is Frank Tommaso. I’m the Co-founder of Ripcord.io. We’re a collaborative team training software and my partner and I had an idea, several years ago, both running sales organizations where we came up with this idea of actually recording the calls real-time with real-time transcription and notifying the team managers, or the sales managers that their people are on the phone and they could just click a button then join the conversation and coach them live.
When we came to Technology Rivers, you know, we had several things that we had to really make work together; a Chrome extension, progressive web app, and… you know it has a lot of moving parts in our software. Technology Rivers was able to understand what we were looking to do and they understood the project and what the software was trying to resolve. And we’re able to build things, not just to build them–just to check them off the scope, but to build what actually worked. Just the collaboration between our team and their team was just amazing. We ended up hiring them and within 12 months we completed the project.
What I like most about Technology Rivers was just working with them on a daily basis. I mean it was really truly a collaborative experience. It wasn’t, you know, handing something often and receiving it back to me. It was really that that daily communication that kept the project going.
You know a lot of times you’ll give your scope out and the developers will just build something. And it may not even make sense, but they’ll build it just because the scope says it. That was not the case with Technology Rivers. We really just went through everything together. I’m like the typical person that would hire Technology Rivers, you know, without much technical background. So they really exceeded my expectations when just explained everything to me.
We had a short experience with another software developer and basically, it was just a big waste of time. Six months time was lost. You know they delivered three lines of code that they just didn’t understand, and it didn’t work well. They weren’t collaborative with their clients. So, the overall experience that I had with Technology Rivers has been overwhelmingly amazing. I’ve referred so many clients to them since then just because it was a great experience.
