ACG wanted a company who could better support their growth
reinteractive’s CodeCare®, fixed price monthly code maintenance service for Rails apps and OpsCare® managed hosting, keeps ACG’s software up-to-date and functional, while also building new features.
Since signing up for CodeCare and OpsCare with reinteractive, our software has never run smoother and our CodeCare developer has been easy to work with.Justin Bash, Founder, Ag Consulting Group (ACG)
Ag Consulting Group (ACG) is a US-based independent agricultural consulting company, offering a wide range of services to its farmer clients. They ensure their client’s grain is delivered to the best market, advise on profitable marketing opportunities for current crops as well as one to two years into the future. They offer assistance in the planning of logistics, a full brokerage service, and make sales recommendations based upon global, national, and local information gathered from numerous sources.
Proprietary Software for Agriculture Consulting
A key component of the ACG offering is their easy-to-use proprietary software which inputs the financial data generated from a farm and presents it in various reports including live profit and loss reports, expenses per acre, break-even analysis per bushel, and sales tracking. This enables farmers to maximise their profits by making the right decisions at the right time.
They were struggling to get issues fixed and new features implemented in a timely manner so ACG Founder Justin Bash searched for a new development partner. He wanted a company who could better support ACG’s growth, keeping ACG’s existing software up-to-date and functional, while adding on new features.
I chose reinteractive because of their experience as software developers and because they were willing and capable of putting a larger team behind ACG if we needed it. There is easy communication back and forth even with the time difference between US and Australia.Justin Bash, Founder Ag Consulting Group (ACG)
Despite some concern about hiring a company based in a different time zone on the other side of the world, Justin chose to engage reinteractive for their experience and their capacity to add resources as required.
He immediately saw the value in reinteractive’s CodeCare® and OpsCare® services to support ACG’s software.
reinteractive's OpsCare® is built on top of the world’s leading cloud provider, AWS. We have build a robust, scalable environment utilizing the wide range of tools available in the AWS stack.
OpsCare provides full around the clock monitoring and support for Ruby on Rails applications. With an experienced team located in three time-zones around the world, it provides complete follow-the-sun support ensuring client applications are online and functioning.
OpsCare provides a fully managed hosting environment, while also allowing our clients to access their code at all times and to deploy updates and features 24/7 without our intervention. It includes the set-up and maintenance of the infrastructure, the tooling and monitoring set-up, any development or updates necessary to ensure compatibility between the application and our infrastructure and pushing the managed stack live.
Applications can be hosted in one or more of the eleven geographic regions currently available to AWS customers, reducing local latency.
CodeCare is reinteractive’s monthly subscription service for Ruby on Rails applications, providing proactive code maintenance and ongoing improvements. This professional service includes 10 hours of development for an application per subscription month (more hours are added by adding more months).
ACG now have an application that runs smoothly and is maintained. They have easy access to a team of top developers.
Outstanding issues with the application were addressed and, with a solid platform upon which to build, new features are being added. These improvements in the software have resulted in even greater profits for their clients.
Altura Learning decided to engage reinteractive’s user experience expert
Altura Learning’s strength was in their content and so they decided to build a portal allowing larger international providers to access the training materials without worrying about which LMS they used.
Creating the rapid prototype resulted in a solid blueprint and base from which we could forecast more accurate project costings, which is essential when requesting approvals and expenditure from a board.Grant Ricker, Technology Director, Altura Learning
