Prohire wanted to increase the throughput of their team at a cost effective rate. They also needed to improve their software methodology and required us to assist their existing UK team.
Realmdigital took over Prohire's development of a Windows-based car hire reservation system. The reservation system included an automated invoicing system that integrated with reputable accounting packages like Sage.
It also included a brokerage system that brokered contracts between suppliers. Automated fax generation and email messaging for suppliers not using Prohire were subsequently developed for this brokerage system. Apart from this, we also developed handheld applications for mobiles that were used to inspect cars.
We then developed a web-based booking portal that can be easily integrated into a Prohire customer company website. We gave them a broader access to web skills and more development languages so that they could expand their business.
Prohire is a British-based company that have been outsourcing development from Realmdigital for more than 6 years. We created processing systems between the United Kingdom (UK) and South Africa so we could work together. Meetings took place every quarter in South Africa or the UK, thus creating a unified team. We made use of online collaboration tools, online source tools, analysis tools, and communicated via VOIP and conference calls. As a company, we leveraged everything we could on the Internet, and became an extension of their development team, so that they could produce more products.
