Enfo - Nordic IT solutions company enabling data-driven and holistic business transformation

The challenge

Enfo is a Swedish IT company that specializes in utilizing cutting-edge technology in software integration solutions for businesses. They acquired e-man, another Swedish tech integration specialist, in 2016. Before becoming part of Enfo, e-man decided to come up with a strategy that would enable them to bring prices down while retaining their standards of quality. To accomplish this,

they set their sights on finding a highly reliable and competent outsourcing partner.

Our approach

Highly confident that we can provide the right support to the e-man team, Arcanys began the partnership with 1 Java developer. Before long, they grew to become a 12-man development team that builds applications from scratch on both frontend and backend. Today, the team has 16 developers that continue to provide software development solutions as well as 24/7 AWS support to the Enfo team.

PaymentLogic - A payment platform that enables business payments on your credit card

The challenge

PaymentLogic is a payment platform that allows Australian enterprises to pay for their business expenses on their credit cards and, at the same time, earn reward points and make them eligible for interest-free periods. As the app was taking off, they needed to ramp up their team, but they still had limited resources.

Our approach

Needing to ramp up

quickly but with limited funds, Arcanys supplemented their team with 2 full-time .NET developers to work on the payment platform at a fraction of the cost. Arcanys developers seamlessly worked with their team on making improvements, implementing new features, and also upgrading the entire system to MVC.

RegisterNow - Engaging and professional easy-to-use registration forms

The challenge

RegisterNow is an Australian online registration company that enables event organizers, clubs, associations, and universities to easily manage data from e-registration forms. Growing at a fast rate, the project needed to revamp its UI and also ramp up their tech team. However, they had limited funds and were quite new to outsourcing.

Our

approach

Given a detailed scope of work and a timeline, RegisterNow started with 2 Arcanys .NET developers to work on a proof of concept during the initial 2-week risk-free trial. The Arcanys team upgraded their 13-year old system to a newer architecture, implementing the latest technologies and frameworks. Their CTO reviewed the work and was so impressed that he also hired Arcanys devs for his other project Payment Logic.

Think it Twice - Luxury corporate training specialist

The challenge

Founded in Hong Kong in 2014, Think It Twice is a digitalized training platform specifically designed for professionals working in the luxury retail industry. Wanting to develop and implement new features, update their CMS, and maintain their mobile apps (both in Android and iOS), they were looking for a solid tech team that comes at a cost-effective plan to seamlessly collaborate

with.

Our approach

To respond to their search for the right tech partner with a robust IT experience, we initially deployed one mobile developer to update their app and create new features for it. Later on, they decided to transfer their system to AWS serverless and hire more full-time developers. The team accordingly adapted to the changes and now, not only is our team managing the entire project but Arcanys is also investing in it.

NZ Funds - Auckland-based financial and investment advisor

The challenge

Founded in 1988, NZ Funds is a privately owned wealth management firm in Auckland that specializes in providing expert financial and investment portfolio advice to New Zealanders. Looking for ways to speed up the development of new features, they wanted to expand their team but struggled to hire developers.

Our approach

Fully prepared to dive in and

lend a hand, Arcanys deployed 2 developers to augment the NZ Funds’ in-house team. They worked on a proof of concept that convinced NZ Funds that they are more than capable of handling the tasks at hand. Now, the team is developing more new features for the application. Since hiring the team, they have added 1 more developer to work on another project and is planning to add a tester as well.

Reorg Research - Financial market intelligence and analysis

The challenge

Reorg Research

Reorg Research is a provider of breaking news, updates, and other relevant data and insights in the finance industry for subscribers across Europe and the U.S. Wanting to implement new features for their web apps and more support for their systems, they needed to extend their tech team and was looking for an outsourcing partner in the same time zone as their

headquarters in Hong Kong.

Our approach

To effectively ramp up the Reorg Research in-house team, we deployed 2 full-time developers to work closely with their CTO. In a collaborative effort, the team was able to implement new features on the web apps, fixed bugs on the legacy systems, and even contribute some improvement suggestions to benefit the entire project.

RateMyAgent - Top real estate agent ratings and statistics website

The challenge

Launched in 2014, RateMyAgent is a review platform that provides verified ratings and statistics of real estate agents so buyers and homeowners can find the best agent that fits their needs. Wanting to expand their startup venture, they were looking to ramp up their in-house team with reliable experts without going through the hassle of hiring the candidates

themselves.

Our approach

Eager to lend assistance, Arcanys initially deployed 2 developers to RateMyAgent. Soon after that, they added 3 more developers, and together they worked on various microservices for RateMyAgent. To date, the team has worked on 5 microservices in all, 1 of which was developed from scratch and 2 has been successfully launched. In addition to that, they also hired a team of customer support experts to address client concerns. Highly interested in continuing the partnership, they’re planning on further expanding the team by the end of the year.

FieldWiz - Innovative wearable tech for optimizing sports performance tracking and analysis

The challenge

FieldWiz is a wearable tech that collects physical performance data and analyzes the metrics for optimizing training and strategy, especially in team sports such as football. Simply collecting data, however, doesn’t automatically help athletes and coaches improve their game. FieldWiz also needed an intuitive, user-friendly interface so its users can easily interpret and efficiently

leverage the collected data.

Our approach

Impressed by what the FieldWiz team has already accomplished, and believing in the startup’s great potential, Arcanys decided to invest in the venture as part of our reactor program, Arcanys Labs, with software development time. We built a dedicated team with 3 developers, along with the expertise of our senior web architect, to work on the project’s web application, giving it an intuitive and user-friendly interface.

AED Global - An innovative residential building component and manufacturing solutions startup

The challenge

AED Global is a startup in that specializes in innovating construction component and manufacturing solutions for building prefabricated homes both in Australia and other countries. Requiring a prototype to present to investors, the startup founders initially needed an expert to design the software UI mockups.

Our approach

From conception to

development, the Arcanys team was more than happy to lend a hand in this inspiringly innovative project. Initially only rendering the digital wireframes for them, Arcanys was later on asked to deploy 2 full-time developers, 1 QA, and 1 part-time project coordinator to help build the AED Global Factory application from scratch. Currently, the team is focusing on building the startup project’s MVP.

Feedback summary: 

With three resources allocated for every single in-house developer, Arcanys has transformed the size and capability of the internal team. Their support has been integral to every success that’s been achieved, and they work with each key account. They collaborate closely and communicate well.

 

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the SVP for the information management division at Enfo. We’re a consultancy for services and IT consultancy.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Arcanys?

We were searching for resources that could help us during peaks in business. It’s hard to find resources where we’re located.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We’ve done a lot of work together. Arcanys mainly performs Java development, NodeJS, and Angular. Everything they do is based on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform. They help us build many serverless applications. 

We also use Arcanys as our DevOps team. Even for operations, they’re helping us to take care of the environments. They’re 100% integrated with our in-house team, but are simply not in the same room. 

What is the team composition? 

About 30 people from Arcanys work with us. Their dynamic works really well. There are a lot of testers and systems operations specialists. The tech lead works with a few supporting developers. 

How did you come to work with Arcanys?

We had a relationship with one of the founders of Arcanys. We decided to try them first and see how things went. The initial engagement went very well, so we continued with them. 

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $1–$5 million. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since January 2012.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We wouldn’t be the company we are today without Arcanys. They’ve helped us achieve lots of success stories. They support essentially all our work and operate the entire AWS platform we use, which is quite massive. 

Arcanys is the most significant part of our team. They assign three developers for every one of our in-house engineers. We work very closely together. They help us serve all of our most important clients. One of the biggest companies in Sweden has 5–6 teams that work with them.

How did Arcanys perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very fluent in English and offer prompt response times. Arcanys is the best team we’ve encountered, which is why we stick with them. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

The developers have a mindset and attitude we haven’t encountered before. Arcanys has a knowledge base and hunger to learn that makes them stand out from the competition.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could push back a little bit more against the services we request if they think there’s a better way. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

You should meet Arcanys in person if possible. Get people together in the same room at least once. You’ll see how nice of people they are.
