Packhelp is a successful European startup delivering custom packages all around the continent. In their 3D package creator, you can design an ideal box for your business – choose the size, material, color, and even imprint. Ready-to-use boxes are delivered to your door in a convenient form.
Packhelp came to us with an existing app and as a well-established business. They were so successful that they couldn't handle all their development work internally anymore. That was their primary challenge. Together we agreed that we could help Packhelp temporarily, by creating a new module of their system.
They were also struggling with other issues:
tight deadlines resulting from agreements signed by Packhelp
sophisticated business logic of the existing app
new module separated from the rest of the system while communicating intensively
We started with a workshop about Packhelp business requirements regarding the new module. After understanding the details, we approached the technical discussion with Packhelp's CTO. Together we decided on the overall system architecture and implementation details. We also agreed that the project would be conducted within a scrum methodology with our project manager.
Here we present selected solutions we created:
Thanks to our help Packhelp gained an additional workforce and finished a project that they wouldn't have normally even started. Together we progressed this fast pace startup by two months, which was critical for the growth of the company at this point.
