2016 – the beginning of cooperation
Digital identification project
Our cooperation with the company began in 2016 with a digital identity project for the automotive and insurance industries, in which support was required in terms of the creation of test architecture and implementation of the test process. The JCommerce offer addressed the client’s needs best – we provided comprehensive Quality Assurance support, creating test architecture and providing tools for manual and automated tests of systems and mobile applications.
- Creation and implementation of comprehensive software test architecture.
- The first project implemented for the client, which required both companies to get to know each other’s organizational culture and team members.
Insurance documentation management platform
The first project carried out together was successful, so a couple of months later the client came back to us with a question about the possibility of providing the competences of several Java developers and supporting work on a solution in the microservices architecture. The project concerned the creation of a completely new platform for insurance document circulation management. Again in this case, we managed to quickly set up a team of the required specialists and implement the project in accordance with the client’s expectations. As our cooperation developed, we provided the support of an increasing number of specialists. The project involved an architect, a business analyst, Java developers and Front-End specialists, and the work was supervised by the project coordinators and a Scrum Master. The positive assessment of our team’s engagement resulted in a permanent cooperation contract which continues to this day.
- Greenfield project in microservices technology.
- Need for flexibility and quick scalability of teams as the project evolved.
