My organization is looking to enter into a long-term technology partnership that can support our new initiatives and ongoing growth.
What you need is a team who can really go the distance with you, setting you up with a rock-solid technical foundation, while stretching into a more profitable, super-streamlined future with you.
Here’s an example of a project we’ve worked on recently that sounds like it’s similar to what you’re looking to do.
This case study features a web application we built, called Aïdi.
Simply put, Aïdi is a uniquely comprehensive web application that offers the world’s most affordable and complete solution for construction project management. Aïdi is used by thousands of construction project managers around the world to ensure that their projects stay on schedule and on budget.
All kinds of organizations, from companies such as Sobey’s, to hospitals, to municipal governments, use Aïdi to oversee the hundreds of constructions projects they may have on the go at any one time.
We were excited to have the chance to work on the Aïdi project, and flex our tech strategy muscles in interesting new ways. As it turns out, we ended up becoming Aïdi’s long-term technology partner, which means we still work closely with them today.
Aïdi approached us because they were looking to create an extremely robust solution that could effortlessly keep pace with their growth (they had big plans to expand into overseas markets, as well as to beef up their presence here in North America).
... Hmm - maybe they’d heard that one of our strengths at Osedea is our commitment to agile coding! That means everything we build can be seamlessly expanded on - so it won’t “break” as you grow, or if you want to add new features.
The main reason the Aïdi web application needed to be so robust was that it had to let its users easily manage majorly large-scale projects - with big-time budgets to match. There really was no room for surface-level coding here, and certainly no room for error. So we spend a good chunk of time mapping out the intricacies of how the application would work, as well as how it could be programmed to facilitate easy viewing of the many different data sets it would be used to track (Aïdi users needed to be able to get an at-a-glance view of how their construction projects were progressing).
Osedea was involved from beginning to end, playing an instrumental role in bringing Aïdi to life as their dedicated technology partner. We first met with Marc Parenteau, who came up with the idea for Aïdi, in 2012, and immediately starting mapping out how we could make his vision a reality.
Then we put our programming team to work, continually revisiting Aïdi’s goals and priorities as we coded the nuts and bolts of the application and designed the user interface.
From day one, Osedea has been our trusted partner, working steadily alongside us to establish and solidify Aïdi as the most complete and in-demand construction project management software solution on the market today. Working with Osedea has been nothing short of fantastic. We have a wonderful sense of peace of mind knowing that they are with us every step of the way as we blaze a bold trail forward.
Aïdi includes an impressive range of tools to facilitate stress-free construction project management. We unleashed our trademark coding expertise and passion for innovation with each feature we programmed, which included instant report consolidation, a comprehensive work log, easy management of change orders, the ability to quickly handle approvals, remarkably accurate budgeting, and simple timeline prediction.
In addition to creating the Aïdi web application, we also automated the infrastructure management (known as “DevOps”) for Aïdi based on what we’d learned during an R&D project that we had completed previously. Now we can tweak Aïdi’s servers remotely for them in less than 60 seconds!
This is a great example of how we like to do our own research and pass along the benefits to the client.
Now let’s take a moment to get Aïdi’s take on things - as well as hear what an Aïdi user thinks about the web application we coded to be used by people in similar construction project management roles.
As you can see from the kind words shared above, having the right technology powering your business - and the right technology partner supporting you over the long term - is a total game-changer that can take you to the next level of growth and impact in a crowded marketplace.
