Faster Iteration for Internal Stakeholders and Customers Alike
Switching to OutSystems has already positively impacted Keypoint’s project delivery. It can now complete the sales cycle four times faster, completing projects in a matter of weeks rather than months—up to six times faster, in some cases.
These improvements are reflected in the applications Jones’ team delivers for Keypoint existing customers as well, including a recent development project for a long-time customer, global imaging giant, Canon. Over its 20-year business relationship with Canon, Keypoint has delivered several large projects including self-assessment sales tools, web-based virtual showrooms for new products, and numerous backend management improvements. Prior to using OutSystems, most of these large projects required several developers and took seven months or longer to complete.
But after the shift to developing with OutSystems, that all changed.
“Our large format business line, one that provides heavy-use printers, came to us to create a content management and engagement solution for its existing customer base,” said Jones. “A team consisting of just one full-time developer and one part-time developer built a mobile app in just three months.”
