We helped the most important dairy management company in the US to succeed in this digital area by modernizing their current applications.

The goal was to move their legacy applications onto a modern infrastructure with an enhanced User Experience (UX), thereby providing better opportunities for growth and scaling in business, gaining access to new markets in new countries, new segments and customers.

The starting point

After 30 years of development, the VAS suite of dairy management products was facing some of these problems:

  • Difficulties to scale
  • Difficulties to synchronize the work
  • Compliance-based operational problems
  • Difficulties finding customers' localizations
  • Limitations to expand the business

Educating our team on the field

Our team traveled to Tulare, CA in order to have on-site interviews with the main users and start with the development of our Discovery Phase. The goal was to understand how they worked so that we could detect pain points and suggest opportunities for improvement.

Exploring the agricultural field

As experts in transforming business we developed a strategic technology roadmap and uncovered many compliance-based, operational problems, especially in terms of the ability to reconcile and keep track of where customers were.

We added more capabilities, flexibility, cloud-based backups and business intelligence. VAS has now a modern app with excellent UX.
