Headquartered in Austin, Texas, we have branches in North East and Southwest of United States, as well as in Brazil, Israel and Taiwan. Our corporate mission is Empowering computing solutions to enable you with a peace of mind.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire CINQ Technologies?

Corvalent hired CINQ to assist on developing an industrial asset performance monitoring software solution that provides customers with better productivity, higher efficiency and maximize profitability.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goals was to design a robust industrial application software platform to be able to service all twelve segments of our industrial industry, providing customers with a quick time to full application development delivering significant benefits where clients would see the benefit of improving revenues, saving significant costs and high levels of security.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found CINQ doing a research for the best and most established software developers in Brazil. Some of our criteria was to make sure, the vendor was flexible, reliable, creative, well structured, experienced and able to communicate eloquently in English and Portuguese.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

CINQ provide augmented services of UI, UX, Front end and Back end development of our application platform

What was the team composition?

Off and on we hired about 6-7 professionals from CINQ, including project managers, SCRUM Masters, UI/UX designers as well as Senior Programmers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

We were able to maximize and optimize our development process, lower the costs as well as increase efficiency in the design process. We were also very impressed with CINQ development process.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Project Management was done on both sides, here at Corvalent as well as internally at CINQ. Communication was customized to our needs and CINQ offered a high level of flexibility in adjusting to our requirements.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

What we found most impressive about CINQ was that the entire staff, including the principals of the organization were people with integrity, passion and extremely humbled. Their level of creativity and their commitment to accountability is something I have not seen before. That is extremely important to us and to our customers.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I know forecasting time to develop can be a huge challenge for any development organization. We would like to see a more conservative approach to lead time forecast and deliver the services ahead of time, below the estimated budget. This certainly creates a high level of partnership and trust, as well as very long term engagements with customers.

Feedback summary: 

The time-sensitive project was completed within the required time, ensuring the company didn’t lose a crucial revenue stream. The team is skilled, professional, and excellent at what they do, working seamlessly alongside the in-house team.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We deliver solutions to help modernize legacy systems and migrate to newer platforms. I was the CTO during the project.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire CINQ Technologies?

We needed to expand our software development organization in order to help us catch up on projects that were lagging behind or needed updates.

What were your goals for this project?

To migrate an antiquated Applet-based application and switch it to a modern web-based application.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I’d worked with them in the past, so I already knew the quality of their people and deliverables. Time was important in this project, and the quality of the deliverables couldn’t suffer, so CINQ was a perfect choice.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

We need to remove legacy integration using Java Applet technology and move it to a web-based application. Modern browsers don’t Java anymore, but we had a revenue stream that depended on the solution.

The project was a 9-month effort during which they had to familiarize themselves with an all-but-abandoned codebase.

What was the team composition?

One of our only remaining employees with knowledge about the application worked alongside the CINQ team in an agile manner. They provided a project manager, a tech lead, three developers, and a QA engineer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

We were up against the clock in terms of the cost of losing an annual revenue stream. Their ability to perform the work within the necessary timeframe helped to save that revenue stream from deteriorating.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We provided access to the tools, such as Jira and BitBucket. We interacted with them as an extension development arm, which was extremely effective.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their ability to get up to speed on the technology and understand the business was second to none. It has always impressed me how well and how quickly they're able to ramp up.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

There isn't much where I could say they need to improve. I will always reach out to CINQ as my first choice for development. The team is fantastic, they’re based in the same time zone as us, and their company culture is similar, all of which make for a remarkable relationship.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m a software development manager for a company that offers a fare management system for large airlines.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

We hired CINQ Technologies to develop new features for our fare management system and provide maintenance.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Our VP of software development chose them because he had worked with them in the past and had a very positive experience.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

CINQ Technologies fixed all software defects reported by customers as well as the ones found by our internal QA staff. They also designed and developed new features and assisted in implementing new systems for new airline customers. We’ve upgraded the product with them once a year since 2013.

What was the team composition?

We have a flexible staff of 8–12 Java Developers and Oracle PL/SQL developers. CINQ Technologies also provides assistance with Level 3 support.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Since working with CINQ Technologies, we’ve gone through five successful upgrade cycles and have implemented the software to over 10 new customers, which gives us a much larger market share in the fare management space. Overall, we’ve been able to produce a higher quality product and provide a better service to our customers at a lower cost.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We were assigned a dedicated project manager from the start and have continued with that model.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

CINQ Technologies is always looking for ways to improve their business and their staff’s technical knowledge. They’re also very accommodating with our changing needs, scaling the team up or down as needed.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

It’s always a challenge to find excellent technical staff that also have experience in the airline industry. Improving their staff’s business knowledge is something they can work on.
