Our biggest strength lies in our Agile teams. And, since 2017, AROBS’ productive collaboration contributed significantly to the project’s success – for both JobCloud B2B and B2C divisions.

Collaborative teams were distributed across 5 locations in 2 countries, a communicational challenge that we turned into success. AROBS’ teams of curious and highly skilled professionals, with expertise in a diverse palette of

technologies, ensured high adaptability and problem-solving.

More so, when it comes to enterprise application development, we bring essential know-how gained in over 20 years on the market, collaborating with clients in more than 14 countries.



3 years of clinical trials cost up to 450 million dollars. AROBS Life Sciences Solutions, Software Services Division, collaborated on the project that succeeded to drop the amount by


Saving time means saving money and when talking about the pharmaceutical industry, time is also a matter of saving lives.  

By implementing the solution with our collaborator, the entire process of clinical trial research for a new product became optimized in terms of time and money. 

The necessary amount of time drops from 3 years to 3 months and, taking into consideration that one day of clinical trials research might cost up to 1.8 million dollars, the total cost of the process is reduced by 75%.

What is our input?

The AROBS Life Sciences Solutions Department has helped to build expertise around specific software that simplifies the clinical trial process the drugs go through, from the research point to the approval, before reaching the consumer. Practically, we help the business entities analyze the features of the drugs faster, so they can send them for approval in a shorter period of time.

Our proven successes in the Life Sciences solution for our international partners, together with our high flexibility to adopt and integrate with the customer’s specific processes and standards, give us the competitive edge to meet the continuous optimizationneeded on the clinical trial research market.


We focus on clinical randomization and trial supply management activities with professional Interactive Response Technology (IRT) solutions. This app is built using innovative Web-based technology for both web and mobile.

Our customers’ needs required a solution that helps them manage patient’s screening and enrollment in clinical trials, randomization and drug supply management.

Our solution was to integrate the interactive Web response services (IWRS), which was developed via an Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS). The Web-integrated service built by our developers offers strong reporting capabilities and other practical features.



RentYourCrane is an innovative project that uses technology to upgrade a more than hundred years old industry. They needed high-quality software services for their project and our colleagues from Travel & Hospitality Solutions worked on it.


an easy-going but hard-working company with the capacity to deliver. We really appreciate the way they share their ideas and help you through the whole process. We wanted a new booking platform – front and back-end development – so, from all the potential suppliers, we chose AROBS. They gave us the confidence we were looking for, through their experience and energy. Everything was casual and simple, so we truly recommend them.”

Niels Wouters, Finance manager, Rentyourcrane.nl

Study case

Lifting jobs are no easy jobs. Finding your best lifting solution is no easy job either, but RentYourCrane will assist you through the process. 

If you are looking for a lifting solution, RentYourCrane allows you to order easy and quick; determine the location, date range and product. 

Business Challenge

Our client, with 120 years of expertise in this business, needed an innovative solution for this industry, in terms of implementing an online renting platform and build a back-office application that allows them to easier manage their products and get in touch with their customers and being able to advise them. 

If at first the platform was dedicated to manage only our client’s cranes inventory, now the challenge is to extend this platform to help as well other suppliers from this industry to rent their cranes through this rental system, making customers life easier by having a single point of searching for the most suitable crane for every lifting job, whether this involves the lifting of an enormous work of art, moving to a location that is difficult to access or the logistical organization of a construction project. 


A mobile renting solution has also been designed and is currently under implementation with the challenge to cover all functionalities that the website RentYourCrane offers, but also keep the renting process as light and fast as possible.

AROBS Approach on RentYourCrane

To make sure we understand our client business and to be able to propose the best solutions, we have started our collaboration by involving a Business Analyst. Our team member helped us transpose the client’s needs into mockups and created use cases that gave us a more complex view on the application workflows. 

Based on these requirements, a UX Designer built an attractive design for both the website and the mobile apps, keeping ease of use in mind.

Having all these established, the development team started the actual implementation, following a SCRUM Agile approach, offering the flexibility to improve the initially described requirements and proposed design, up as the project goes along.

The Forestry Software Solution means the creation of an IoT system, a platform that provides improved efficiency, better visibility, and control at each stage of the forest lifecycle. The cycle is more efficient: from forest to mill and from land acquisition to product delivery in order to support responsible forestry. The forestry

management solution offers cloud-based data, collaboration, and workflow automation services to forestry professionals and forest planning experts.

Our colleagues from the Software Services Division, IOT specialization worked on this project. 

Small and medium-sized forestry companies in Finland use the solution. It has a centralized management environment for the various functions of forest planning in a modern user interface. It facilitates the update of the customer forest plans and forest stand data.

The software's functions imply:

  •        maintaining user accounts and customer data
  •        planning forestry work and cuttings
  •        managing harvesting service logistics
  •        update customer forest plans and forest stand data
  •        allows for geographic information-based forest plan and work site maps through    integrated map system
  •        laser scanning for forest asset data collection
  •     forest growth calculation models to help determine the need for cuttings.

Business Challenge

One of the objectives of the project was and is to integrate as many as possible of the older applications that were in use by some of the clients of our partner. An important focus was the improvement of user experience, in particular by reducing response time, improving filters and guidance messages or alerts. A great emphasis was also put on the customization of customer-specific functionalities, the improvement of the support process and on the development of integration. This would allow better integration between the various companies’ products that help carry out the client’s activities.


We also made technical changes that place us in a better position in terms of market requirements, added new functionalities and support for the entire forestry management solution.

The main technologies used in the development of the project were:

  • AngularJs
  • Typescript
  • RxJS
  • Bootstrap
  • Lodash
  • ag-Gri

Benefits and impact

The created web-based platform created has become a valuable instrument for responsible and controled forestry. It’s increased responsiveness. The user experience improved the workflow that helps for a better time management. The development of new functionalities continued and the project currently has a number of tools that allow a better approach to the market.

The software is a complete solution that integrates the entire activity process of any forestry company. As a web-based service, it can be scaled anywhere in the world in the industry.



Travelport Hotelzon is a leading corporate hotel booking company offering booking services and hotel distribution technology, using advances travel software, to corporate clients, hotels and agency partners. Travelport Hotelzon has an extensive customer base – over 500,000 corporate customers all around the

world, and the world’s biggest travel agencies. It serves the entire business travel industry, having a unique business model merging both travelers’ and companies’ wishes. They requested the help of our Software Services Division.

Travelport Hotelzon’s hotel booking solution provides efficient tools for simplifying the booking process, implementing company travel policy, and control functions with real time reporting. For hotels and agency partners, it offers a suite of hotel distribution technology and services ranging from direct sales tools such as an online booking engine through to GDS distribution.

The platform fulfills and is certified according to the highest PCI level. Compliance with PCI standards helps to alleviate vulnerabilities in the card-processing ecosystem, including mobile devices, computers and servers, and protect cardholder data.

The Travelport Hotelzon International Group has twelve subsidiaries – UK, Finland, Sweden, Romania, France, Poland, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Portugal, Spain and Germany.

Business Challenge

Business travelers are increasingly adopting a leisure travel mindset when booking their corporate travel and want to be able to book via consumer-grade apps while on the move. The development of a new generation version of Travelport Hotelzon app came as a need to fill the gap between corporate and leisure booking experience. The new generation architecture and design was decided in correlation with continuous delivery principles. It’s more intuitive, responsive and user-oriented, making it easier to search and book a hotel directly from their mobile.

Another challenge is to completely migrate the current generation functionalities to a new generation platform. Furthermore, the migration of both current generation and next generation servers to Amazon represented a challenge.


Dynamic hotel search was a major release, involving new technical solutions and technologies for reducing UI response time to half and a better user experience. Static hotel contents are directly displayed and prices are dynamically updated based on suppliers’ responses.

Hotelzon API (hAPI) is an interface through which 3rd party service providers can utilize Hotelzon content and booking capabilities within their own system’s user interface. The latest version allows the sending of a PNR record locator during booking flow, offering the possibility for our clients to link the same reservation with their air and car reservations in Travelport GDS.

One of our teams from the Software Services Division, Travel & Hospitality Solutions Business Line worked on a Channel Manager, which is a software solution that actively manages hotel exposure to online travel agencies, such as Booking, Expedia, SynXis,

Best Western and any other similar platforms. It offers the capability to control rates and availability from a single real-time source. It also provides integration with property management systems so that the bookings, regardless of the sources, are sent directly to them.

Integrator for Online Travel Agencies

The Channel Manager distributes the hotels live inventory to a wide range of Online Travel Agencies (OTAs), Global Distribution System (GDS) with minimum effort and cost.

It streamlines the channel management process by allowing you to control rates and availability from a single real-time source, removing the requirement for room allotments and manual adjustments on an individual channel basis.

Business Challenge

The large range of products that cover PMS, online bookings, CRS, channel distribution, digital marketing, PCI compliance and POS systems leads to different challenges. During the development process, we started using Agile, moved to cloud and implemented continuous integration, continuous delivery, while constantly using the latest technologies.

Through several technical, as well as mindset changes, we came to the performance of managing various channels, hotels, RMSes and more than 15,000 reservations a day.


Our collaboration with the client has been active for more than 18 years now, so we can say that the results of our work can identify with their success. Nevertheless, our technical and business expertise has contributed to the increased value of the company on the market, which was acquired a fiew years ago by a large market stakeholder and evaluated at more than 70 million euros.



Social impact is one of our core values. Working on projects that reflect our values is a privilege. This is the case with this project, a cloud-native custom software development for an NGO that helps other worldwide NGOs prosper in the agriculture sector.

Our colleagues

from the Software Services Division worked on the project. With the created project management application, the client improved overall business indicators, centralizing all crucial data.

Business challenge

The initial challenge was related to the understanding of the requirements from the client, given the fact that the destiny of the project was unclear. With the help of their business analyst, everything fell into place, communication improved, and the previous application was entirely re-coded.

The second challenge was to move the built application to the latest technologies.

The final challenge was to integrate a timesheet application for accounting purposes.

AROBS Approach

The client was open to new ideas, so we approached them with suggestions for improvement. Afterwards we negotiated the implementation time, offering different deployment solutions, highlighting the pros and cons of each in order to facilitate the decision-making process based on our expertise.

Unquestionably, music has a huge impact on people’s lives. Influencing the industry that affects the daily lives of the global population was as challenging, as it was a great source of pride.

The project was implemented by our colleagues from the Software Services division and the team that worked on it is mainly specialized in 

Cloud applications development for Enterprises. Our work consisted of creating a global publishing system – together with our partner – that brings improved business functionality and efficiency to the music industry. It also facilitates business transformation and further centralization of some core business functions, such as songs management, contract briefing, copyright, registration, portal, royalty processing, and tracking/reporting.

Business challenge

The challenge was to replace an old and obsolete publishing system that was suffering of decentralized and low-quality data. Thus we decreased the processing time and increased efficiency while working with multi-terabyte of data.

Also, on the people level, the biggest challenge was to harmonize the work of developers from different continents and physically gather them for the intense research phase of this project.

The output was a cutting edge, a truly singular system that revolutionized music publishing.

AROBS Approach

We approached the challenge with incredible focus on research since the music industry was a domain where AROBS did not have previous experience. Together with our partner, we held intense meetings to analyze flows and the specificity of the industry. We were searching for blind spots where huge improvements were possible.

This approach allowed the team to transform the software developers into experts of the industry. Hence, they were able to increase overall efficiency and achieve an 18-fold improvement time-to-production.


Since users are spread all around the world, it was important to have a robust system that is highly available and easily accessible. Therefore, the team used leading approaches like cloud-native solutions on AWS.

To ensure the persistence of the system, we used Cassandra – a distributed and fault-tolerant technology.

Other technologies used include Cloud Foundry, Elasticsearch, RabbitMQ, Angular, Node.JS, HTML5, CSS3, responsive design.

Benefits and impact

The revolutionary system

  • reduced time-to-production for new functionalities from 3 months to 5 days;
  • generates data that feeds over 2 million pages of PDFs each quarter;
  • can deal with a data increase of 1+ TB/year;
  • centralized data for a faster and more accurate reporting;
  • optimized data structures and modification tracking to simplify future audits;
  • decreased response time to user actions and needs;
  • operates with multi-terabyte of data in ways never seen before in the music industry.

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


Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the director of product testing for a pharma services company.


What challenge were you trying to address with AROBS?

We have testing team members who are full-time working in the U.S. but we had a need to bring in offshore resources to be able to quickly turnaround products.


What was the scope of their involvement?

We’ve been developing up to 50–60 releases per year across the line of products. My team primarily works on the testing side. We have to train them on our processes and tools and then they are ready to go.

What is the team composition?

There are about 25 testers on our side who are working on multiple products and business units. When we start a project, we work in an agile scrum methodology. Any team consists of 5-8 members which include developers, testers, and scrum masters. Their team structure is always under 10 for a particular piece of work they’re developing. We have 8-9 teams that have the same structure.

How did you come to work with AROBS?

They were introduced by one of our strategy leaders who had worked with the team in his past year. What made them stand out is the ownership they take of their tasks and their flexibility.

How much have you invested with them?

Just under $3 million just for the testing resources.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in June 2018 and the work is ongoing.


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

The key differentiator is they’re a flexible team and they come up with mitigation processes. The ramp-up time is considerably lower compared to any other vendor that we currently have. Whenever we have a problem, they come with multiple options. That’s always been very helpful for us.

How did AROBS perform from a project management standpoint?

They always come up with a very well thought out project plan in terms of listing all milestones, activities, putting in assumptions as required, and calling out all parties that are required for any project. They are on top of the project plan in terms of tracking and monitoring.

They make sure the project plan is monitored and updated in terms of task progress. They’re upfront and honest. They manage the team and the deliverables in a self-contained model. We were only required to jump in very few cases.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They take ownership and that’s really important to me when it comes to delivering such a big portfolio. I just don’t have the ability to keep an eye on every single project that’s going on. There are 60–75 big projects being delivered in a year’s timeframe. We have multiple product releases every week of the year. I rely on them to get the projects delivered on time with quality and within budget.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They’re doing well. If there was anything, they should start looking into expanding their capabilities into other areas, technologies, and markets.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

The initial ramp-up period is crucial. Whenever you onboard a new vendor, pre-allocate the plan for the knowledge transfer, the ramp-up time, and milestones for monitoring these tasks. If you have a well-defined ramp-up process with enough milestones and tasks in it, it will be pretty easy to onboard any new vendor or partner to work on our application.

Feedback summary:

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


Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am one of the initial founders of Rentyourcrane, a startup platform for the rental of mobile construction cranes.


What challenge were you trying to address with AROBS?

We started with an idea and started a business from scratch where our product is a website. We needed someone to help us with development.


What was the scope of their involvement?

We provided them with the specifications, and AROBS built it in PHP where people would be able to access the products, order, book, and pay. They created a frontend for the user to book and a backend where we can organize all of our orders. 

We also made use of the project manager as well who helped with the wireframes. I gave my input and they created the wireframes based on that. I reviewed them and then we either approved them or not.

What is the team composition?

I have one project manager. There are also 3–4 people on the team and I had contact with most of them.

How did you come to work with AROBS?

We have a company in Cluj where they are located as well, so we got to know them. We did a bid process, and we chose to do something for the local economy there as well and chose to work with AROBS.

How much have you invested in them?

We have spent about €80,000 (approximately $91,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in September 2017, and the work is still ongoing but on a low level.


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

The work was completed in stages. A few months after the first stage, we started with a new stage and that was delivered a few months ago. AROBS is eager and willing to help, but I think it is also just a normal IT project where there is always discretion about who is responsible for what. The quality has been okay.

How did AROBS perform from a project management standpoint?

We don’t use any particular project management tools, but worked with a project manager. In the end, pricing is okay, but I think as far as timing goes, it is higher than what we are used to here in the Netherlands. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

In general, their wide knowledge of all the program skills sets them apart. They have eager teammates who have great skills and are able to help. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

Having more of a client experience is an area where they can improve. They should be more open to talking with their customer to see how they can come up with a solution together. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Make sure you write down what the expectations are from both sides right from the start.

Feedback summary: 

AROBS has facilitated a positive engagement by understanding customer requirements, providing recommendations, and ultimately delivering high-caliber work. They remain helpful and easily accessible throughout the design and development process. The team communicates well and meets deadlines.

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


Introduce your business and what you do there.

I oversee a business line that has three different SaaS products for the life sciences industry.


What challenge were you trying to address with AROBS?

We have a platform that is very much product-needs consulting. We had a lot of frontend need around setting up sites that met customer requirements. We’d go through a pretty extensive design engagement and then build out of those frontends, and AROBS supported us across the board in that effort.


What was the scope of their involvement?

AROBS helped us with design – wireframing and UX – as well as frontend development using React, HTML, and CSS. They also provide QA support.

What is the team composition?

Our main point of contact is Ancuta (Project Manager). At any point in time, we had up to six individuals across design and development. We’ve since scaled back a bit; we don’t have as much development need at the moment, but our work in ongoing in a smaller capacity.

How did you come to work with AROBS?

They were working with my company before I joined.

How much have you invested with them?

I’d say several hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of 18 months.

What is the status of this engagement?

My company’s work with AROBS began in November 2018, and it’s ongoing.


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

I actually collected a testimonial from a co-worker who worked with them throughout all of 2019. She said, ‘Working with the AROBS team has been a great experience for me. The lead developer on the project always took the time to explain everything in non-technical terms if needed. The team understood customer requirements very easily and were also quick to recommend better alternatives wherever possible. They were also very helpful through the design and development process. The team was always available to answer my questions and provide feedback as the project went along. They ensured top quality, timely delivery, and satisfactory support until the end of the project. I highly recommend them.’

How did AROBS perform from a project management standpoint?

We used Microsoft ADO for ticket management. They do have a nice solution for billing and tracking developer hours or tickets. It was helpful to get those reports from them. We didn’t have any issues when it came to communication or deadlines; they’ve been a good partner. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

I can’t think of anything in particular.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There is a time zone challenge, but that isn’t their fault. They’re Eastern Europe-based and we’re East Coast-based, so we do have good overlap in the mornings. Their team is flexible if needed to join some later calls, but there are always challenges when we have limited overlap in the working day.

Please describe your company and your position there.

CTO of a travel online portal


For what projects/services did your company hire AROBS?

Complete architecture and product transformation and migration. Contracted 15 to 20 IT ressources full time over a several year period to manage to system transition

What were your goals for this project?

Complete creation of the new platform and migration from legacy systems


How did you select this vendor?

We reviewed several IT companies in Romania and ended up contracting with Arobs for their amount of available ressources in all kinds of IT functions and good relationship

Describe the project in detail.

SCRUM to SCRUMBAN team composed of subteams buid up as the project was growing surrounded by effective support teams (Sysadmins / Architects / Automated and manual testing / Management...). Issues and surprise as any project of this scale managed with realism and in partnership to delivery and maintenance.

What was the team composition?

Approx 10+ devs - 1/2 architects - 1 sysadmin - 2+ testers - 1 PM and on-demand ressources depending on expertise


Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Successful strategic platform migration with more connectivity with availability providers and traffic sellers. Better service and added company valuation.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

All the usual productivity tools and monitoring for definition, planning, reviews and progress. Conference calls and regular trips to Cluj Napoca to build up relationship and organise workshops.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their spirit, relationship-building skills, available resources, and openness made them stand out.

Are there any areas for improvement?

On a general level, stimulate problem resolution and research at the individual level. As a client I always found better for developers to try and fail than wait for management validation. Waiting is less valuable than trying. For long term projects need to secure the architect by all means. Losing the "head" is a big hit for these projects.

Overall Score Great company to work with.

    Good overall. Sometimes over-optimistic facing incomplete client (our) definition.

    Value / within estimates
    Good value. Efficiency improvement with higher costs in some cases could benefit both sides.
  • 4.5 Quality
    Service & deliverables
    Good satisfaction. Always room for improvement ;-)
  • 5.0 NPS
    Willing to refer
    With footnotes but still 100%
