Success Cases - Blueport

Challenge

Blueport Commerce, a leading provider of e-commerce for big ticket retail, was growing and needed to quickly meet the development requirements of adding new customers. In order to increase development capacity in a short period of time while continuing to provide superior quality and services to its clients, Blueport sought out talented Angular and .NET developers capable of adding immediate value and capacity with the flexibility and availability to fill short-term positions.

Solution

Working collaboratively with Kaizen, Blueport was able to identify Kaizen developers to supplement its staff. Together, Blueport and Kaizen identified the key skill sets needed as well as where within Blueport’s team structure Kaizen would have the biggest impact.

From front end work to back end and database coding, Kaizen team members integrated into all layers of Blueport’s development stack.

Testimonial

Marcos Elugardo

My experience with Kaizen is that people come with a lot of knowledge, they share their ideas which is awesome, but they also fit into our development processes and our goals and how we approach things. So it's really easy to fit people onto the team because there is not a lot of work that we have to do to convince them to approach things in a certain way. They just adapted but they also brought their ideas.
