Business challenges

Budget

We have managed to cut the budget required for development by 35% by offering access to a network of e-commerce specialists on the Ukrainian market. The fact that the rates of developers are lower here combined with the fact that TrendLine covers all of the expenses required to support a team of professionals has paid off for our client.

Onboarding

We were to work on a system that has to be integrated into an existing CRM. This would usually require a long onboarding process for the developers to understand the product they are working with. However, given our 8 years of experience in providing similar services we have developed a methodology that effectively mitigates this issue as our developers already know what they should look for in a system.

We have delivered a stable competitor research application that provides our client with relevant information on products and services available on the market.
