A few years ago, a leader in the ag industry approached us for help with one of their existing desktop applications. They wanted us to help them update their legacy software strategy into a more mobile one, allowing their users to bring the company’s power to the field.
The product was an application to track a farmer’s fields and associated data to help increase the yield on their land. However, because it was not mobile friendly, users could lose important information between the site itself and the office where data would be entered.
For three years, Skyward worked closely with the stakeholder to increase the usefulness of the desktop suite by shifting key pieces of it into the hands of the people in the field. Our Agile approach allowed us to recenter the goals of the product with every milestone, and thus to remain focused on the company’s end goal. At the end of the project, they took control of the code and application and left happy with their product.
