We needed a solution that would meet our requirements and that would be delivered fast; tailor-made for Serengeti.
Exponential growth is not unknown to us, as we witnessed revenue growth of 130%, we have grown from a small to a medium company, increased our employee number five times, expanded from one office to five and had clients from all over the world.
At the very beginning, we were a two-man show trying to sell software from a living room. Our list of projects expanded from a dozen to several hundred. Deloitte recognized us as one of the top 50 fastest growing companies in Central Europe two years in a row. None of this happened overnight, it is a result of our committed work and focus on what we do best – developing complex enterprise software. We did just what we advise our clients to do: we focused on our core business.
On the flip side, it resulted with evergrowing office administration. It started piling up, reporting was not organized, analyses were very basic and irregular. Mistakes occurred.
Along with improving business processes, we needed to switch from a small company to a big system mindset. This was the moment when we started looking for solutions that are available on the market. We did a lot of research and realized that we couldn’t find a solution that would satisfy our internal processes in a short time. We were aware that we had more and more backlog day in and day out, which meant more issues, as well.
When we realized that we had already spent a few months on negotiation and still had no solution, we decided to develop our own solution on the RAD platform that we were developing.
A bold move!
