Ongoing Technical Expertise as Third-Party Technology Partner

 

Project Requirements

In this case, a regional manufacturing and construction industry leader approached us to build various applications. More generally, however, they were looking for technical expertise and advice without needing to hire full-time staff into their small web applications team.

Result

Using Intertech’s consulting as a supplement to their in-house technology efforts meant the client could operate more efficiently. The company searched for months to fill open positions on the web development team, and Intertech provided highly skilled software talent within days. The client also benefited from our consultants’ years of experience and varied backgrounds consulting in different industries. Our consultants on the job were experts in the necessary technologies. When they encountered a challenge or needed to give advice, they could also tap the knowledge of fellow Intertech colleagues working on other projects. In this way, the client benefitted from the combined expertise of our entire consulting team while only needing to hire one or two consultants.

Working with Intertech’s expert consultants also meant the client could choose, build, and deploy new technologies and software more quickly. As a result, Intertech quickly became a trusted partner and ally when the client needed to make technical decisions or sought a technology solution to a business problem.

Overview

Intertech’s relationship with the client began as a small-scale, temporary assignment to implement batch processing of 3rd party data files. Over the course of the first project, our Intertech consultants built trust and a rapport with the client. That first project grew to include more projects and responsibilities. What started as a temporary assignment grew to a team of two full-time Intertech consultants providing expertise, advice, and software development to modernize the company’s suite of Java web applications and Configuration Management processes.  This included:

  • Upgrading projects from Java 6 and Struts 1.3 to Java 8 and Spring Boot/Spring Web MVC.
  • Migrating all projects off of Ant builds and onto Gradle and Artifactory to manage dependencies.
  • Implementing a new web app to manage the company’s Engineering projects and time entry.
  • Defining a release process, including versioning and branching strategies.
  • Establishing coding standards and providing tools to enforce them across the team.
  • Hosting an internal Wiki to document projects and processes.

Since the client is based in Wisconsin, Intertech’s consultants worked remotely. Additionally, the consultants were available to travel to Wisconsin to attend meetings and training (live online & in-person when applicable), as needed. The result was increased efficiency and cost savings for the client while still delivering high-quality work and regular face-to-face contact.

"Working with Intertech allowed us to modernize the user interface of the equipment we produce."

“Working with Intertech allowed us to modernize the user interface of the equipment we produce. The consultants they provided were clearly experts in their field and brought the necessary knowledge to our team to update our application. But working with Intertech also helped us move toward a faster development and deployment cycle for our new features moving forward. This new user interface will provide a better user experience for our customers, and our new deployment pipeline will enable us to continue improving that user experience over the months and years to come.”

"Thanks to everybody for the efforts over the last 18 months!"

“It’s with mixed feelings that this day has arrived. I’m sad to see this collaborative effort come to an end; but I’m excited with what we have accomplished. Tom & Scott had a lot of patience with me through the process and were able to teach me a lot of good stuff. For me, one of the big benefits of the Intertech/[client] relationship was it helped me demonstrate the value of software to the company which led to my getting approval to hire two software folks. Even though this particular project/phase is at an end, I’m hoping we have the opportunity to work together again. Once again, Thanks to everybody for the efforts over the last 18 months.”
