Business requirements

Intact wanted to develop a mobile application for its clients, but had little time to do so given the required date it had to be made available. The company therefore had to set up a development team, acquire the tools and adopt the methodologies requires to achieve its objective.

Solution

LT Plus helped set up a development team, specialized in the development of mobile applications, which was then integrated into the team already in place at Intact’s Innovation Lab. Consequently, Intact’s employees and LT Plus’ outsourced team coexists and work closely together for a greater performance and efficiency. Logient’s technical leads, a team leader and a quality assurance specialist are also involved from the very beginning of the project in order to provide a helping hand and ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Result

The application was delivered well before the required deadline. It was also awarded the Coup de coeur du public award at the OCTAS gala. Furthermore, Intact now has a team of autonomous developers that master the Agile methodologies thanks to the well-organised, knowledge transfer sessions that took place throughout the duration of the project.

Customer benefits

  • Business objectives were achieved.
  • Time was saved
  • A software development team was developed.
  • Company now less dependent on technology (long-term investment).
