What was the scope of their involvement?
They created the custom management program for our client using Laravel and AWS. We'll integrate white-label logistics systems down the line, too. The software works its way from the office to the farm, to logistics, then back again, so it provides full traceability of an order all the way through.
We've entered into a three-year engagement with Sprint, complete with three phases. With phase one, they replicated in the system how they run the system today, but also built out a backend system for how they'll run the business in year three. Eventually, the orders will be tracked via tablet at each tractor.
We're very cautious that we need to get engagement from the actual operators by year three, so we can realize a fully digital system. We have two phases to go, with phase two being the automation of the billing process, and phase three being the digitization of the farm.
They go through around 5,000 ticket sales per item, so managing that in a transparent and easy to report manner, has been appreciated.
What is the team composition?
I work directly with their owner and their lead developer.
How did you come to work with Sprint Digital?
I had a client for web development that really liked all of their backend development, and I learned that Sprint Digital had completed it. We sat down and did a small project together, and now I've probably done five projects with them for different clients.
How much have you invested with them?
We've invested $200,000 – $300,000 AUD thus far (approximately $140,000 – $210,000 USD)
What is the status of this engagement?
We began working with them in 2017, and our engagement is ongoing.
