Optimizing Business Processes for a Global Shipment Company Image

Optimizing Business Processes for a Global Shipment Company

Founded in 1976, United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) is a global provider of shipping services. In 2017, the company merged with Hapag-Lloyd.

Highlights of the solution for UASC

  • A single, yet geographically distributed channel of collaboration for 185 regional offices
  • Enforced control over documentation flows

The problem: Inefficient workflows
With

185 offices across the globe, the customer was experiencing miscommunication issues through the lack of a unified, yet distributed channel of collaboration.

Furthermore, all the organization’s documentation was stored in a third-party shared file system with no tracking functionality, versioning history, or role-based access, which gave them no control over sensitive information. In addition, it was impossible to access or download a required document using a mobile phone.

The solution
Using SharePoint as the core technology, the team at Brimit delivered a web portal that serves as a single channel of communication for 185 global offices and encourages distributed collaboration across regions. With improved business processes, the company gained control of documentation flows and achieved efficient communication across 21 departments. Finally, the organization moved 5 TB of data from a third-party file system into secure SharePoint-based storage that promoted role-based maintenance over documentation.

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 a digital workplace consultant at a development shop that builds and integrates digital collaboration platforms. Most of our customers are companies with 200–4,000 employees.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Brimit?

We needed additional support with development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Based on the specifications we provided, Brimit helped us develop a fully cloud-based collaboration solution for one of our customers. As a tool, it enables users to collaborate both internally with their colleagues and externally with people outside the company. Brimit developed large parts of the code.

What is the team composition? 

One developer from Brimit is assigned to our project full-time.

How did you come to work with Brimit?

One of my colleagues visited several SharePoint partners in their area and thought Brimit seemed to be the best for us.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since May 2018.
 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We don’t have any specific numbers to share. The quality of work they delivered was consistently high.  Most of the team demonstrated great communication skills, especially the point of contact we worked with directly. Our collaboration was effective.

How did Brimit perform from a project management standpoint?

Brimit wasn’t in charge of project management; we handled that internally. We held daily and weekly meetings to coordinate the project. Concerning tools and technology, we used Skype, Jira, and Microsoft Teams.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The developers have very impressive programming skills. In fact, they always found a way to work around our problems.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We wanted to switch one resource in the middle of the project, but it wasn’t possible to because Brimit has a limited number of employees. It would have been nice to have the option to switch developers when we wanted.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Communication is key.

Feedback summary: 

Aggressive deadlines and timezone differences failed to prevent assigned resources from becoming productive members of a blended dev team. Brimit’s strong work ethic and Agile workflows ensure seamless collaboration. 

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

My company specializes in marketing and websites for the hospital vertical. We work with various clients across the country doing websites and services. The primary platform that we use is Sitecore. I’m a tech lead on the project that we worked on with Brimit, and I'm also a dev team manager at our company. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Brimit?

One of the core reasons that we used Brimit was their expertise with Sitecore. They were fully staffed with a whole range of Sitecore developers, and they allowed us to scale up and down as needed relative to our project flow. I’ve had previous experiences working with other offshore companies that do specific technical services and similar concepts in IT, but our company hadn’t used a supplier like this before our engagement for Sitecore. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Brimit started with us during the last half of a project. We were already through the design phase and were ready to start with the implementation phase; that’s when Brimit was brought on board. Basically, they ramped up quickly and were able to carry the load immediately, even though it was a complicated project. They adopted it and did well.

The project was updating and improving a hospital’s website that was built on the Sitecore platform. The new website would replace the obsolete website they had. The hospital’s marketing department wanted us to make improvements to the platform so they could do better marketing going forward. Brimit didn't just replicate an existing site with new technology. They added functionality to the site and a whole new UI, content strategy, and approach. The bulk of the features that Brimit used in the project are common to this industry. There are some unique approaches that we developed, and the Brimit guys had to learn them quickly and then replicate them following our technical requirements. As far as features for the end user’s website, it’s basically a robust enterprise-level website for the hospital industry with the features that the industry often uses.

How did you come to work with Brimit?

I believe we found Brimit through a referral from a dev lead at our company, who had worked with or had known of Brimit while he worked at a previous company. There were a few issues that factored into choosing to work with them. They had the skill set immediately available when we needed it, and they were willing to work with our process. We do Agile, and the workers at Brimit were on the calls, they did the stand-ups, and they worked with our process entirely. Those were the factors that contributed to us deciding to go with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

I think we started working with Brimit around October or November of 2015, and our relationship is ongoing. Since the initial project, we’ve moved on to 2 more major enterprise projects. They came in halfway through our first project in November 2015, wrapped it up, and moved right into the next 2 projects. We’re still working on wrapping up the third project.

All 3 projects were similar. They’re enterprise websites for hospitals, and they share similar functionality with advanced search and features like that. They were all custom built for each client’s requirements using Sitecore. The same core team from Brimit worked on all 3 sites, and they continue to work with us. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

We launched a bunch of phases throughout the last year and a half; working with Brimit and having their team help with development enabled us to meet our deadlines, which would have been a struggle without them. Their ability to ramp up, produce, and integrate well with our team has allowed us to get these projects to clients on the deadlines that were promised.

Brimit’s performance also has improved throughout the project. They have to use a lot of our proprietary processes and approaches to solve the problems and to meet the customer’s requirements. I noticed that they improved in learning our system, processes, and approaches; their knowledge level went up considerably over the years. Their level of English also has gone up from when we first started working with them. We now consider them to be almost like a local team, even though they are 8 time zones away.

Compared to other offshore companies we’ve worked with, Brimit’s dedication to quality and delivery is higher than anyone else’s. They put in whatever effort was needed to meet the deadlines. If we said, “We have to get this done,” then they got it done. They collaborated with our BAs [business analysts] and project managers to clarify issues. Traditionally, with offshore people, you send it over the wall and hope they do it. Brimit asks questions, makes sure they understand what they are delivering, and then deliver it. Their quality of work also was exceedingly better than other offshore teams.

How did Brimit perform from a project management standpoint?

We initially started working with 3 of Brimit’s developers (a lead and 2 additional developers). I think we had 6 developers at the peak of the project, and then toward the end of the project, we were back to 3. The initial developers were brought to the project under Brimit’s recommendation. Then, as we added more members to the team, they ran their selection process past us, and we got to interview them and decide if we wanted them to be on the team or not. That worked well for us.

For task assignments, we used JIRA. We also used email and instant messaging on either Skype or Slack. Our platform has changed a few times. We also did daily stand-ups where they called in.

I was consistently interacting with the wider team. Leads handled most of the stuff, but if the leads were unavailable or if the schedule didn't work because of the time difference, then the teams would step in and handle whatever communication was needed. Everybody handled everyone’s stuff well.

What did you find most impressive about Brimit?

Brimit’s work ethic and level of effort ensure that they produce quality products that meet our requirements. Even if we have a misunderstanding, Brimit puts forth the effort to correct any mistakes and make sure they’re made right. They have a strong drive to make sure that what they deliver is high-quality. It’s hard to come by people—vendors and employees—who have Brimit’s level of desire to make a quality product.

Are there any areas Brimit could improve?

Our day was their evening, which made it hard to coordinate sometimes; they get to have a personal life too, right? They tried really hard to be available all of the time, but sometimes some of the guys couldn't make it, and they also neglected to let us know they couldn't make it until the next day. I know it’s extremely hard from their end. The only thing I’d say they could improve is their consistency in communicating when they’re not available for a call. Of the team of 6, a few of them were always spot on and would always, always communicate. If they were away on vacation or something, sometimes the backup guys would not be as communicative.

The site performs exactly as requested, with rich functionality and a solid architecture that minimizes support requests. All of Brimit's deliverables were highly accessible, technically excellent, and free of error. 

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

BACKGROUND

Could you briefly describe your company?

We provide online language tutoring and examination prep services to children and young adults. Our services are done entirely online. 

What is your position?

I'm the founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

Could you describe the business challenges that you were attempting to address when you first approached Brimit?

We were trying to build a new custom site that would allow us to offer our various tutoring programs to end-users. We had a lot of custom requirements that had to be met, and a fairly aggressive deployment timeline. None of our team members had the skills necessary to build the site, so we knew we needed to find external developers. 

SOLUTION

How did you select Brimit as your partner for this project?

They came recommended by another business partner. He had previous experience working with Brimit, so he knew they had the skills needed and a good reputation. 

Could you describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail?

They were mostly responsible for the technical elements. We had a good idea of how we wanted the site to look, and had very exact technical requirements when we approached Brimit. We collaborated on the site architecture and refined the scope before they started the actual coding. They performed the functional development and took care of the testing and quality assurance. 

Could you provide a general cost estimate for this site deployment?

[It was about] $100,000.

When was this project completed?

The site was finished in the beginning of March [of 2014].

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

In terms of results, could you share any statistics, metrics, or user feedback that would demonstrate the quality of their performance?

I can't share any specific metrics with you because of privacy, but I can tell you that the functionalities have worked exactly as we had planned. We haven't had nearly as many support issues after launch that we had originally anticipated since we were building a very custom site. They developed some very high-quality code for us. 

When working with Brimit, is there anything that you would consider special about their approach that distinguishes them from other vendors?

I don't have experience with other IT [information technology] vendors, so I can't make any real comparison.
