Next Marketing - Software Development Image

Next Marketing - Software Development

Next Marketing offers many marketing services including management and support of channel marketing efforts. Next Marketing supports large clients engaged in front line partnerships, with management of their joint marketing efforts using software. These joint marketing partnerships rely heavily on workflow management, budget tracking, activity tracking, audit logging, and the capture of market spend documentation to allow the

partnerships to work effectively.

The legacy software put into place has been effective in achieving its original goals, but is quickly approaching the end of its life due to both aging technical infrastructure and an outdated user experience, making it difficult to use for new clients. 

SOLTECH assisted Next Marketing with this project initially via a short Solutions Design phase. The primary objective was to capture a more detailed list of functional requirements for each of the identified features and to create a visual design for the key user interface screen of the application. During this Solutions Design phase, the blueprint for implementation was created, as well as a detailed development estimate.

Next Marketing was able to present their client with a viable product that allowed them to more effectively use their allocated joint marketing budget by creating a user friendly, malleable piece of workflow software that met all business needs.

Fusionetics - Build of Sports Medicine Platform Image

Fusionetics - Build of Sports Medicine Platform

Fusionetics was formed by a group of sports and wellness professionals including sports medicine doctors, physical therapists and professional athletes.  With extensive past experiences in internet-based health and wellness services, Fusionetics wanted to create a new product that would offer online assessment tools to identify imbalances and dysfunctions in the body and then automatically generate a treatment plan as well as

provide a personalized portal to track treatment activities and progress.

Understanding that the best product feedback would come directly from customers, Fusionetics and SOLTECH defined the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) from the completed solution design and focused the implementation plan on building the MVP over a seven-month period.  To help Fusionetics actively sell the new product to professional sports teams and athletes prior to launch, the SOLTECH team created a project plan that would give Fusionetics the ability to demo the in-progress application as soon as possible. 

Fusionetics was able to successfully build and launch their Sports Medicine platform with an accelerated schedule while building a strong customer base both before and shortly after product launch.  At the time of writing, Fusionetics has 18 professional teams and 20 collegiate teams as customers who are actively using the product.

LG Electronics - Implementation and Integrating SOPS 2.0 Image

LG Electronics - Implementation and Integrating SOPS 2.0

LG Electronics (LGE) Commercial Air Conditioning (CAC) division is based out of the United States and supports the sales, training and operations of LGE’s commercial and residential air conditioning products. LGE CAC has seen considerable growth in the last few years and to support the increased customer order management needs as well as internal forecasting efforts, LGE created an online portal called Sales & Operations

Planning Site (SOPS).

The LGE SOPS portal is critical to the management of commercial orders by Sales Reps and internal LGE staff. The orders, also referred to as “Projects,” have long lead times and play a significant role in demand forecasting for manufacturing efforts.

LGE CAC selected SolTech to enhance the functional elements of the existing SOPS architecture, to overcome current system limitations, and to provide additional sophistication to meet the demands of the growing business and customer needs. The project initially started out as a transition and support effort but then grew into a re-design and re-build of SOPS.

LG Electronics Quotes

“Everybody that I’ve worked with at SOLTECH comes up with things that I never thought about.” “I would recommend you guys above and beyond. I couldn’t tell you how pleased I am with the whole process.” 

Technologies Used

ACT Bridge - Application Design and Build Image

ACT Bridge - Application Design and Build

ACT Bridge is an innovative start-up that offers online tools to medium and large businesses for recruitment, career development, performance evaluations, and succession planning. ACT Bridge’s vision is to change the way managers and human resources look at an organization. Rather than focus on evaluating and promoting employees based on the existing organizational chart, ACT Bridge’s product suite maps each job to the key

skills and knowledge that are critical for success.

This approach uniquely allows businesses to look at the strengths and weaknesses of individuals and match them to the right job during recruitment and career development as well as make better staffing evaluations and promotion decisions during performance reviews and succession planning.

With SOLTECH's help, ACT Bridge was able to take their concept, and through an iterative solution design process, productize their ideas into an application blueprint, and then build a viable product to sell to the market place. As intended, ACT Bridge’s beta product customers were moved to the production version of TRUE Talent. New customers, including Fortune 500 companies, are currently awaiting the release of TRUE Succession Planning, which is the final application in the product suite.

SmartPM - Custom Application Development Image

SmartPM - Custom Application Development

SmartPM, formerly Construx Solutions, is an independent consultancy and advisory firm for large construction projects. Their job is to help their clients identify and mitigate the risks of delays, disruptions and budget overruns. Through years of experience, SmartPM has developed a unique process to capture and analyze key data metrics during construction projects that are above and beyond what is typically gathered by project

managers. This data in turn is analyzed and used to identify risks early and address them before they impact the project.

To better scale their business and to improve the quality, quantity and timeliness of data collected, SmartPM embarked on creating an application that could be put in the hands of construction teams in the field, and in turn automate many of the key data capturing and analysis performed.

Haggai International - Salesforce Configuration and Customization  Image

Haggai International - Salesforce Configuration and Customization

Haggai International is a global organization that provides leadership equipping and support for national leaders located in 188 nations. Haggai has significant workflows and processes required to evaluate, select and logistically support the attendance of individuals at their global training events. Haggai used a variety of systems to manage the organization of their global training sessions and ongoing support of their

trained leaders worldwide. The systems were written in antiquated code and were not integrated with each other, making management and data retrieval difficult. Salesforce was selected as the ideal choice to serve as the central hub for all their data and the tool that could facilitate communication and coordination with its Alumni/Leaders around the world.

SOLTECH resolved the licensing concern by creating an integrated extranet portal for the volunteers so that licenses were only required for the core Haggai employee team. SOLTECH used Salesforce Sales Cloud with significant custom objection and custom workflow development in order to meet Haggai’s needs.

LG HVAC - Salesforce Customization  Image

LG HVAC - Salesforce Customization

The LGE HVAC division was experiencing an issue where multiple sources of product, sales and marketing data existed in different formats and locations. This was preventing LGE from using their data to make business decisions that could positively affect their revenue goals. Updating, merging and keeping that data current was also becoming a challenge.

Having several successful SOLTECH project experiences on other

non-salesforce related work, LGE asked SOLTECH to take a look at this problem and offer solutions. Using Salesforce, SOLTECH was able to quickly resolve some existing development challenges while also providing a holistic design that encompassed the sharing of data between Operations, Sales and LGE’s various web properties that also require regular data updates.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

SOLTECH proved to be a skilled partner capable of delivering quickly and efficiently. In the effective engagement, they provided a placeholder application while delivering a completely redesigned platform. Their team demonstrated wise decision-making and a great group dynamic.

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 am the VP of IT for a nonprofit organization.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with SOLTECH?

We had a legacy web application that we used for well over a decade. It was written in an old programming language and we didn’t have maintenance support options available to us, so we decided that we wanted to replace and redesign it.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We replaced our previous development company with SOLTECH, and concluded the first phase of this large project. They replaced the old application and launched a newer partial Phase 1 application. The application had been started using Ruby on Rails so the development was continued in this programming language.

We then reevaluated the plan for the application’s design. We provided SOLTECH with all the information they needed in order to rewrite the application. We had a number of conversations onsite and through conference calls to put together an actionable design document.

We were initially going to utilize Microsoft.NET technologies to create the app. After beginning development, SOLTECH realized that a customized Salesforce platform would be a better option for us. Salesforce offered the features and functions we desired, relieving us of the need to program them entirely from scratch. SOLTECH used Microsoft.NET to develop a web application site that synced data to our Salesforce application. This wise decision saved us both the cost and time to custom-code a program.

We’re currently tweaking things and adding some new enhancements to improve the application’s usability.

What is the team composition?

The size of the team has fluctuated over time. We have an account manager, a brilliant business analyst, and a few project managers. We’ve also worked with two key developers and a UX/UI developer.

How did you come to work with SOLTECH?

I knew of SOLTECH and its services through previous networking experiences. I initially approached them because I knew of their familiarity and expertise with Ruby on Rails. They then came in to further discuss their service offering, and we felt that they were qualified to meet our needs.

How much have you invested in them?

We have invested approximately $250,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them in 2016, and the work is still ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

While the new application is in production, we’re using it effectively. Their high level of expertise has allowed them to produce a well-designed product in a short amount of time. I’ve worked with vendors who aren’t as skilled, and it’s taken them twice as long. SOLTECH, on the other hand, has quickly pulled the right resources to get it done efficiently.

How did SOLTECH perform from a project management standpoint?

There is good communication; I’ve had access to everyone on the team. I appreciated that because, in some organizations, you can only interact with a project manager. It’s been great to have friendships with specific individuals on the project team— this dynamic has contributed to project success.

Our most common method of communication is email. We have conference calls and meet in person when necessary. They’ve come here more frequently than I’ve visited them, so they’ve been very accommodating.

What did you find most impressive about them?

SOLTECH has experts in critical operational areas, like project development, project management development, database architecture, and business analysis. They provide seasoned experts instead of having a single person attempting to manage different areas of work. SOLTECH’s team is comprised of specialists, a group dynamic that works very well for them (and us.)

Are there any areas they could improve?

Our previous assigned project manager was outstanding. He was fully certified and had all the skills and expertise. 

Right now, we’re in the maintenance phase, and I have to largely manage the requests still on the table, and that may be because maintenance and break/fix don’t typically require project management resources. So, likely with any company, the option for some level of project management during maintenance and break/fix needs to be agreed to by both sides.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Figure out whether you want a fixed cost or an estimated cost for a project. If you want a quote that requires SOLTECH, or any developer, to give you a fixed price point, it will take a little more time and money to establish that number. If you have an estimated cost, they might go over it during the course of the project, but it takes less time and money to come up with that quote.

Feedback summary: 

The platform eliminates problems from the previous system and cuts client wait times from a week to 24 hours. SOLTECH provides accurate estimates and is easy to reach. They are the vendor of choice for multiple departments, and their developers meet all requirements.

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 work as a project manager for the commercial air conditioning division of LG Electronics.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with SOLTECH?

Regionally, we were building a forecasting pipeline tool. We needed help to build it out.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They've supported this tool since they developed it. It has a CAD software that they built that allows users to draw their large commercial buildings. Users can then extract the data from the CAD system and upload it into the larger tool, which then creates a bill of materials. We have several big jobs for a variety of mixed-use buildings. The app provides drawings, submittals, and inventories. There are a lot of extra functions they've developed for us to supplement our original needs. We recently added a reporting tool, and the whole tool utilizes a bunch of different software.

What is the team composition?

We've worked with at least half a dozen people over the course of our interaction. Now, we have one main developer and systems architect who help us.

How did you come to work with SOLTECH?

We found them through a Google search. We met with their vice president and another team member and told them our initial plan. They came up with better ideas than we had, and we went from there. We had a discovery session with a couple of architects and our project lead, and we determined rather quickly that they were the company we wanted to go with among the three options we considered.

How much have you invested with them?

In total, we've spent over $1 million.

What is the status of this engagement?

I think we started working together in 2014, and our collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have over 1,500 users. Before we had this tool, we did our quoting off of elaborate spreadsheets. If anything was wrong or outdated with those spreadsheets, we ran into a lot of problems. Previously, placing an order could take a week. When we first rolled out this tool, we cut the wait time down to 24 hours, and customers could place an order within ten minutes.

How did SOLTECH perform from a project management standpoint?

We talk multiple times a week, depending on the project we're working on. We use Jira as our ticketing system, so whenever we have an enhancement we want, or on those rare occasions we find a bug, we open a ticket. That allows them to estimate the timelines.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They're our vendor of choice now for both our operations and our marketing department. They're deeply entrenched in our business, and they’re super responsive and easy to work with. Since they're so close to our office, we can meet in person when we need.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We have run into some trouble with a few of their project managers. We've run over on some projects without any warning, so they could improve those team members. Their developers are outstanding.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I don't have any specific advice for future clients. Our whole team uses them, and they work very well for us.
