What was the scope of their involvement?
To process orders and price quotations, we have to use a proprietary system that links directly to our factory. However, the documents it provides are formatted for use in Germany. Before our engagement with Confianz Global, inc, we had to manually edit the documents to correct punctuation, formatting issues, and price listings. Eventfully, we were generating so many documents that our internal staff couldn’t keep up with the demand.
We hired Confianz Global, inc to develop a custom application that could import word documents and convert the text to XML format. Then, the app needed to enable us to bulk edit information based on the location of certain fields. Furthermore, we wanted the software to automate changes that always take place like the formatting of dates and prices.
They developed the application using AngularJS. It includes a UI for us to edit pricing, customer names, delivery addresses, and the payment terms of any purchase. The app generates both quotations and order acknowledgments. We still manually enter item prices, but the software automatically calculates the customer’s cost based on quantity and available discounts.
What is the team composition?
We primarily worked with their CTO who functioned as our project lead. Their CEO also assisted with communications back and forth as needed. I don’t know exactly how many developers worked on the app.
How did you come to work with Confianz Global, inc?
We’d tried to build the application with two other companies and both attempts failed. We were in the process of closing down the project when we first spoke to Confianz Global, inc Our financial director was put in touch with them through one of her contacts.
How much have you invested with them?
We spent between $30,000 and $50,000 in total.
What is the status of this engagement?
This project took place from November 2017–April 2018.
