Build a transcription editor Add-in for Word
Sep 2015 - Jun 2016
Shujaat is very skilled and knows Word add-ins very well. This was a high risk project where we did not know if what we wanted could be implemented as Word add-in. He could find solutions to problems and improve them when necessary.
There were periods of time of no progress and no replies to messages which made scheduling of resources from our side challenging. Shujaat is a skilled programmer but the lack of focus on the project lead to having to be more careful with allocating people's time to the project on our side and the quality of the code resulted in increased time spent testing the updates throughout the project.
In the hind side, the experience would have be much better if the project was broken up into much smaller pieces of work with tighter deadlines.
