What they were looking for:

Kentz needed skilled .Net developers who could develop and maintain their custom-built ERP system made for internal use. They needed to accelerate their development with the right team.

Why it was a challenge:

Finding the right team of developers who would be able to handle their requirements with the speed and skill that they needed, was proving to be a challenge.  

How they found a solution with bridge:

  • Understanding the requirements of Kentz, Bridge got to work in putting together a dynamic team of .Net developers who could be entrusted with achieving the results that Kentz needed.

  • The assigned System Owner from Kentz communicates requirements through the Project Management tool - TFS.
  • Regular, scheduled meetings are held with the System Owner to ensure smooth work flow and clear communication of requirements.
  • The workflow follows a streamlined process. Tasks are assigned from Kentz through TFS. The .Net team at the Bridge offices in India then securely access the client’s system through a VPN and a remote desktop controlled from Kentz HQ.
