About TARA

Tara is an intelligent product builder that helps product managers, founders, non-technical executives, and CxOs to manage software builds from beginning to end. The solution helps users accelerate product development using machine learning, and provides them with the ability to deploy on-demand developers, scope projects automatically, and build task lists in a single location.

Through a deep understanding of the specific developmental tasks of a project and an algorithm of over 120 data points, Tara helps product managers choose and assign the appropriate developer talent from a contractor network of over 50,000 pre-screened developers. Tara automatically takes care of all pre-screening, NDAs, ID verification, payroll, and independent contractor forms to help speed up development. The system uses artificial intelligence to provide users with customized scoping backed by the analysis of millions of software projects from across the web, allowing users to instantly create development tasks and timelines for project builds.

In order to monitor performance, Tara uses active feedback algorithms to monitor
code commits and provide users with project updates on a daily basis. The system is also able to intelligently predict the project timeline using predictive analytics, and helps expand the team to meet upcoming goals including on-going maintenance work, iterations and version releases. After starting a project, Tara’s flexible platform allows enterprise users to work on their own servers or virtual environments by uploading VM details via the dashboard. The platform allows for multiple internal project owners, enabling the whole team to stay up-to-date on important milestones or project updates.

    Great job communicating to help bring our company's vision to life.

    Pros

    Communication because communication is key. I also like the team behind TARA, they really care about giving you the best product and they'll go the extra mile to provide great customer service.

    Cons

    Didn't like the fact they couldn't reuse the code we already had when building our app and they had to develop new codes from scratch in order to build our app. Needs a new feature to fix this.

    Pros

    TaraAI has been an amazing partner. We are a startup and have two very conflicting realities. We have very little capital, and need to build TONS of things! The platform at Tara assures that you stay on track and that the scoping process is done efficiently and realistically.

    The team at Tara is amazing. Their founders have amazing vision, and understand customer success and doing a great job. My business coach has done a fantastic job of helping us understand scope and priorities. Our project manager has been amazing with updates and timelines. I can't say enough about this great team.

    it exceeded my needs and expectations.

    Pros

    In reviewing the code, their contractors delivered more functionality than what we were expecting. It is apparent that their AI strategy found the right experience to both meet our technical requirements as well as meet a 4 week development consideration. For us, we needed this development to meet a business conference, and it would mean success of failure for our startup. We are very pleased with the experience, and we are planning to have they be a part of our ongoing technical development process. They also warrant the quality of their work, and we saw this first hand in resolving a couple items that would make our product even better. great job!

    Cons

    As a group, we founders are experts in systems and software development processes. We found a bit of a language problem only at first, but once underway with the Agile Scrum process there was never a problem. I find little wrong with either their software, process, or level of commitment.

    Pros

    The TARA team works very fast and deliver way before the promised date. We have daily scrum meetings and clear, effective communication for technical goals.

    Cons

    They don't have every type of contractor available yet, it would be nice to have in house designers and more creative types available for projects.

    It streamlined and sped up our product development and hiring cycle.

    Pros

    TARA assigned us freelance devs, and I loved that I could see what they were building in real-time. At any time, I could check in to view our developers progress without playing phone tag or trying to track down status reports. We could synchronize both our in-house team and external contractors. It was incredibly easy to visualize how far we'd come, and if there were any outstanding issues that I needed to follow up on.

    Cons

    I wish that we could edit project names so that we could more easily identify tasks and status of each project.
