Sales Analytics’ Business Depends On Quality Testing And Fast Deployment Of Their Software
Sales Analytics is a software company who’s platform enables their enterprise size clients a customer system lifecycle and revenue management platform. Their software is used by senior sales management in large technology companies to analyze and predict opportunities for new sales revenue development.
Their software platform performs complex calculations that must be accurate and fast. It also must be highly secure – it holds sales and system data for the many global clients they serve.
Why Sales Analytics Came To WDD Software
Despite having their own development team, Sales Analytics had repeatedly deployed untested software. Additionally, the way the application was built made providing calculations and quick updates on data analysis slow for users, affecting their client satisfaction.
A lack of structured testing within its small team of developers was creating problems for Sales Analytics. Increased costs to resolve bugs and frequent errors was affecting the potential growth of their business.
Sales Analytics wanted a structured development methodology in which their existing development team could utilize and achieve consistent, quality testing to make sure future deployments would release as expected. They wanted updates to their software architecture to improve the speed of the application decrease the wait-time for new calculations to be provided to the user.
They also sought WDD Software’s help in identifying and mitigating any unknown security risks associated with handling their client’s private data.
WDD Software’s Impact
Sales Analytics came to WDD Software to assess the current state of their software. We vetted the platform for issues in security and quality and developed a technology roadmap that would set priorities on development moving forward. We also conducted a variety of security tests and identified areas for improvement to lower their overall risk.
We integrated our senior developers with their existing staff to start assessing issues with the existing software to enable the client to move forward with releases using our structured deployment methodology.
Over the course of our engagement, WDD Software has taken data that previously took up to 1.5 minutes to calculate and display down to as little as a few seconds, making their product more efficient and effective for clients. Sales Analytics’ development team now works on a daily basis with WDD Software’s development and testing experts in the deployment of new feature releases.
Today, Sales Analytics has dramatically improved the quality of its software. They are releasing deployments faster and with fewer bugs, giving their sales team an opportunity to win new business and showcase the quality of their product to new prospects with confidence.
