Technopolis Ventures started the database project in 2008. As the project evolved a need for external programming help arose. The main criteria for a technology partner were price-quality ratio, speed and geographic location. Technopolis also wanted to use the opportunity to support local high tech know-how. HammerKit had already caught the company’s attention as an active player in the Finnish high tech scene. Out of the several candidates evaluated, HammerKit managed to stand out as the fastest and most inexpensive service provider.
Artur Surov, technical project manager of Technopolis Online, gives HammerKit credit for their dedication towards the project, “Co-operation is forthcoming and the customer’s needs are acknowledged with great attention. A small company can remain flexible and also broaden the scope of co-operation when needed.” HammerKit has been able to recognize the bottlenecks of the project and adjust its actions according to the best interest of the client. HammerKit has also appointed a full-time employee for the development of Technopolis Online.
