By establishing a more efficient development process, WG Intetech are now benefitting from a reduction in the time taken to get their products to market. Furthermore, by empowering the development teams, managers have been freed up to focus their energies and attention on other parts of the business.
“I previously had to micromanage the development process but I don’t need to do this anymore as the team is much more self-sufficient. This has allowed me to concentrate on other important things, such as medium-term planning. Instead of being continuously involved in the development process. I can take a look at what else is going on in the market and spend more time talking to customers.” – Ged Lunt, Manager of Technology
The combination of testing automation, and an iterative development process, has enabled WG Intetech to identify problems quickly. Hence they can address problems before they become major issues, which in turn saves the company time and money.
“It now takes less manual effort to get products out of the door. It means we can develop features which would have just taken too long before. In the time that it used to take us to produce three features, we are now producing four or five” – – Ged Lunt, Manager of Technology
As a result of our partnership, we were able to leave the Intetech team with:
- Improved team morale allowing managers to concentrate on core business areas
- Faster and more cost-effective development of high quality and feature-rich products
- Accelerated releases of new products and upgrades
“Having OpenCredo’s consultants shadow working in our office was a very effective way of upskilling our team. It would have been hard to implement the kind of changes if we had tried to achieve this over the phone.” – Ged Lunt, Manager of Technology
