BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are an investment company run by two entrepreneurs who has been active on the market since 1995. Our previous projects consist of the largest Polish real estate agency 'Metrohouse' and an organizator of trade fairs and conferences 'Nowy Adres'. Currently our actions are focused on houses for rent and a platform for gastronomy 'Kellner'.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Codeshine?

Some time ago we got interested in waiters' work in restaurants. We wondered how we can make their work independent from restaurant and at the same time improve restaurants' performance and operations. We noticed that there is a problem with settlement with waiters in Poland and abroad. We decided to take on the problem and we hired Codeshine to create a platform that helps waiters in their job.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to create an mobile app for waiters, which would help them in taking and serving orders in restaurant. At the same time we wanted to give customers a possibility to order food or drink without involving the waiters. When the solution is ready we intended to test it in a befriened restaurant in one of the biggest cities in Poland.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Codeshine got recommened to us by our friend who has been working with them for many years. After a meeting and discussion about our project we decided to use their services.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Kellner' platform allows restaurant' customers to place an order via mobile app. As soon as a new order is created the waiters receive a push notification. When the order is ready the customer is notified via the app. During the analysis Codeshine extended our concept with orders panel - a seperate application, which is available for all waiters. Thanks to that the flow of information within the restaurant is improved and streamlined. Additionally the project includes an app for management of restaurant and an admin app. Placed orders data is synchronized among all apps. The notifications are sent using the apps and email messages. The apps are integrated with online payment services provider which allows users to pay for their orders via credit cards and Apple Pay.

What was the team composition?

The team consisted of: - Project Manager - Frontend Developer - Mobile Developer - Full Stack Developer - Tester

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our company isn't experienced in the gastronomy industry. We hadn't participated in designing such complex and big IT solutions as well. During the works on this project we acknowledged decisions and problems that the industry's entrepreneurs are required to deal with nowadays.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The whole project was divided into 4 stages which were divided into sprints. Codeshine regurarly presented a preview on the progress being made. Thanks to that we had a significant impact on how the app is working. During the work we could change our priorites for certain functionalities and even add or replace some of them. We always were informed of the potential impact of our decisions on the project. We used Slack to communicate with Codeshine team.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We were impressed by the way the project was conducted. Codeshine actively helped us find the best solutions for the problems we encountered. Their experience from working on different projects was noticeable. They assisted us in the business analysis of our idea. They had a big impact on how the apps work. We rarely get to have such good cooperation in terms of both business and technology.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Yes, we think that more time should have been spent discussing and determining how certain functions should work.

We hired Codeshine (formerly Energy Data Lab) to create an online advertisements platform for the wedding industry.

What was the team composition?

Codeshine delegated to our project: - Frontend Developer - Full Stack Developer - Tester - Project Manager

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Noticeable effects of implementation of this platform are:

- Establishing new business contacts with companies that offer services complementary with ones I provide,
- Providing our customers with more choices of services in all corners of Poland, inspirations to organize a wedding of their dreams, which also have a positive impact on my own brand.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Codeshine recommended us to create an account on Slack platform for communication with them. Thanks to that we were in constant contact with the team and we could consult functionalities with developers in real time. All tasks were added to board dedicated to the project in Trello service, which allowed us to see work progress and we could test all new features seconds after they were uploaded to the test server. The project started as scheduled.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

What we found most impressive were brainstorms we had with Codeshine team in regards to optimization and functionalities of the platform. They understood our needs very well. We felt that together we were working on achieving the best possible version of what we wanted to create.We really appreciated as well:- Direct contact with the team and fast response to our needs, reported bugs or changes we wanted,- Propositions of usage of Open Source technologies that have improved our budget,- Proposition of few very attractive solutions for even better functionality of our service.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Atende is one of the leading capital groups in the IT sector in Poland. 25 years ago we connected the first Polish companies to the Internet. Since then, every day we build the success of our customers with the latest and most advanced solutions in the field of IT infrastructure and innovative software. I have been running the R&D department at Atende since January 2018. I am responsible for the development and implementation of innovative products using the latest IT technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence and IOT.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Codeshine?

We have contracted Codeshine to create a multi-platform insurance purchase application. According to the order, the application was to be created in the PWA (Progressive Web Application) approach to be available directly from the insurer's website, without having to install it through stores with mobile applications. The application was to communicate with the API provided by Atende to consolidate recordings on WORM resources and in the private blockchain network.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal in this project was to offer insurers solutions enabling them to sell property insurance remotely. The implementation of this project was also a kind of feasibility study and demonstration of the practical potential of the product. From a technical point of view, the application had to be created as a PWA and be able to recognize insured items in the recorded video. The application had to follow the OWASP guidelines for software development and implementation.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Codeshine (formerly Energy Data Lab) was acquired by the Atende capital group in 2016 to supplement key programming competences. We chose their services because of their openness to new technologies and willingness to take on new technical challenges.

Describe the project in detail.

The application is used for remote conclusion of a property insurance contract. You can choose the type of item, including: phone, computer, camera or watch. The process consists of a "wizard" in which the user fills in information about the insured item, indicates the period of the policy and registers it using the video phone camera with the item. The video is uploaded to the API, where it is verified tightly integrated with Google Cloud Vision based on Machine Learning. Additionally, the logged in user has access to their policies and can manage them.

What was the team composition?

The following people were involved in the project: - Frontend Developer (Angular), - Graphic Designer, - Tester, - Project Manager

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The implementation of PoC in the form of the said application has increased credibility in our conversations with potential clients from the insurance sector. We have also gained an innovative prototype of an application that uses the latest technologies and algorithms based on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. The project is also a basis for further development in the context of supporting insurance processes such as claim settlement.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Programming works began immediately after specifying project requirements at the kick-off meeting. Divided into three optimized iterations, the project process resulted in an efficient course of work. Each stage was completed with a face-to-face meeting.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The Codeshine team demonstrated high competence in programming based on new, constantly evolving technologies. Developers were communicative and presented a high level of technical cooperation.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Codeshine?

We entrusted Codeshine with the implementation of a mobile application operating in the PWA (Progressive Web Application) solution. Its main function is to present the current state of the air in the area by the means of an interactive map. Data for the application comes from our Akadi sensors and is transferred via API integration.

What were your goals for this project?

The most important goal for us was to create a fully functioning, user-friendly application integrated with the sensor API backend. We particularly cared about the timely implementation of the project because the application was presented during a conference during which the premiere show of our air quality measuring device Akadi took place.

We have known Codeshine (formerly Energy Data Lab) since 2016. During this period we have been creating new business opportunities. We share similar views on project management and brand building. We chose Codeshine because they are a young and dynamic team, working in reknown technologies.

It is integrated with the API backend database, which aggregates measurements from sensors, and multiplaform enabled (i.e. works on iOS and Android).

What was the team composition?

This application required the work of one programmer experienced in React.js technology, the Material UI framework and PWA

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have been offering our own air quality measuring device since 2018. We decided to invest in an application to present air parameters collected in our database to increase the attractiveness of the product, which translated into gaining new customers and creating new business opportunities.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The key goals, as well as the functional and technical issues of the application, were discussed during the first meeting (kickoff). In subsequent weekly iterations, the Codeshine team provided test versions of the application. In the final iteration, the last comments and content adjustments were implemented. The agile approach taken on by the Codeshine team determined the positive final result of the design process.

We commissioned Codeshine to build an advanced online platform "Dealer Area, which is used by our clients to manage fiscal devices, SIM subscriptions for 3 GSM operators and service technicians. Based on the previous solution and having collected feedback from customers, we decided to rebuild the key software, outperforming our competition.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We have been cooperating with the CEO of Codeshine since 2009. The CEO and his team have delivered several different IT projects for us (websites, e-commerce, dedicated software). Preparing the implementation of such a large project we decided to entrust the task to Codeshine, due to its appropriate experience and competence. Our employees have developed very good communications with the Codeshine team.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

The dedicated platform supports almost 400 dealership companies with over 800 active users. For a dealership, it serves as a cash register and service management center. It enables the generatation of authorization codes for various devices, activation of telecommunications operators' SIM cards and settlement of invoices. In addition, our company uses this solution for communication with clients, marketing and debt collection. The software has been integrated with the APIs of external services / systems such as: Slack - notifications, Sentry - error tracking, Postmark - email transaction, Dachser and other internal systems. In addition, the solution connects to the internal service that transfers data on cash registers in real time, so that the data in the system is always up to date. To ensure the mobility of the solution, the platform has been prepared in accordance with the RWD rules, allowing it to function on any web browser.

The key aspect for us was to deliver the agreed functionalities on time, which was conditioned by state regulations regarding changes in fiscal devices.
