    Business Need

    IAT wanted to build a new online loyalty platform in a short span of time. PGS Software knew that the best way to do that would be to use the AWS Cloud to develop a robust yet easily scalable and secure solution.

    The core infrastructure was in place but the PGS Software team had to build the actual platform. The team put a lot of work into making epoints fast and secure, and into integrating it with a long list of partner sites and reward providers.

    Having worked with PGS Software resources on various different projects over the 4 years of our engagement, I am in a good position to verify that adding PGS Software resources to a new or existing project will increase levels of insight, velocity, quality, and resilience.
