We collaborate with our partners to build solutions as if they were our own. Through decades of experience, we've learned ideas are only valuable if translated into working solutions.

Expanding Brand Recognition with a Mobile App
PROBLEM: Our partner is a global process control manufacturer that heavily invests in custom solutions. Their products reduce noise, noticeable vibration, and wear-and-tear, resulting in longevity and enhanced performance. Currently, there are no mobile solutions for these products. Their marketing team was concerned that there wasn’t enough brand awareness within the market and sought to increase adoption with a mobile app.
SOLUTION: After extensive user research, our team determined it was necessary to develop both an iOS and Android mobile application. These two solutions give users access to product information and provide descriptions for the most common issues/terms. It also includes a sizing program to help users pick the right product for their environment. This application has been adopted worldwide and is currently being used in 32 different countries.

Building APIs to Connect Your Business
PROBLEM: Our partner has an internal tool used by marketing for customers to purchase software. As business needs have changed, the amount of flexibility needed for new products and marketing initiatives has increased. The current application is built upon monolithic architecture, which prevents flexibility and the necessary agility to compete in today’s market.
SOLUTION: Our team created a new application utilizing a microservice architecture to act as RESTful APIs. This design reduces code complexity, allows rapid changes, decreases response time, and provides a high level of reliability. With this new platform, the team was able to automate several manual processes, reduced errors, and allowed marketing to set up new incentives in minutes. We also added additional functionality that resulted in market penetration and increased sales.

Modernizing Legacy Workflow with Realtime Delivery
PROBLEM: Our partner is a global insurance company that provides policies to individuals and organizations. We worked with a division that provides term policies. Their customers were frustrated with the lengthy sign-up process, which typically took over three weeks. This manual process had a high error rate which compounded with high-material shipping and processing costs.
SOLUTION: By integrating modern solutions with existing legacy systems, our team collaborated with key stakeholders to create an e-signature platform that digitizes and optimizes the managed-delivery process. This allows end-users to receive documents electronically, resulting in a 66% reduction of processing time. This platform reduced cost, saving the partner over $10k a week on printing alone. As of today, 75% of all policy packets are being delivered electronically.
