The Sweetest Goodbyes: How UV Ends a Project on the Right Notes

The Sweetest Goodbyes: How UV Ends a Project on the Right Notes

How do you typically end a project with a client? With a shake of the hand? By popping open the champagne? Here at United Virtualities, while we do enjoy the taste of success, we equally love the sound of triumph.

One of our latest success projects was Meraki which we worked on with Hero Digital. The San Francisco-based IT company sells products including security cameras and wireless, security, enterprise mobility management — all based on the web. And when they were in need of a top-class tech consultancy to fulfill their website redesign, they got in touch with us! We provided the testing across all browsers from desktop, tablet, and mobile.

“We had daily calls for more than a month,” said Damian, UV’s QA Lead. “And because it was in the middle of this pandemic, we bonded quite a lot — we even got to the point of sharing country updates on Covid-19 cases.”

(Slight detour: United Virtualities even has its own Google Chrome extension called Count Covid that tracks the latest stats on the pandemic, compares country figures, delivers you the latest advice from the World Health Organization, and offers mood-boosting videos!)

“It was great to work with John at Hero and we got on really well,” Damian added. Our teams got on so well that we knew each other’s interests, and they found out that Damian had an ear for music. They knew that he had recently bought a piano which he was very excited about! Besides, the black and white keys sparkled on screen during their daily video calls.

John couldn’t resist.

He asked Damian if he could put on a performance. “As I tend to satisfy clients, of course I agreed,” said Damian with a cheeky smile. He jumped straight to his piano and played a melody that fit with the mood of the times.

We’re sure that during Damian’s performance we saw a slight tear drop down from a cheek… but judging from the video footage, we can’t be 100% sure.
