Railsware was really instrumental in helping us get organized. They took us through a facilitated brainstorming approach they call Inception. The methodology enabled us to nail down requirements so that we can really get essentials out the door and build a roadmap for additional phases of features into the offering.

I've been so pleased with the work that Railsware has done that we have now started working with them to help build the next set of great products

It's been great working with Railsware engineers, definitely some of the most talented developers I've worked with in my career.

Involvement

Railsware has delivered full-cycle product development for myKVH - an extensible portal for large Fleet Customers and KVH Tech Support that enables users to access particular vessels for monitoring or configuration change. Our engineers have delivered an extensive analytics portal backed with several data flows that has provided a major catalyst to KVH in closing new deals and delighting existing customers.

Railsware managed the project from inception and scoping through production to deployment. Our team handled front-end and back-end development for myKVH, as well as graphical and UI design.
