Business Need

Jonathan Russell, CTO, set out to improve Science Warehouse’s framework for the supplier reporting system, as it is one of the foundation blocks of the spend management toolkit.

However, he did not have sufficient resources to carry out the necessary changes in the required timescale. PGS Software was recommended to Jonathan as a reliable source of expertise that would be able to bridge potential resourcing issues.

I was impressed by the fact that my team didn’t have to change the way they worked as the PGS Software team fitted into our way of working. The quality of the work they produced was consistently high – a great achievement considering we had such a short timescale to do the work in. PGS Software’s high-level architect gave us valuable insight into how to take this project to the next level. Likewise, their UX contribution was invaluable.
