As BrightBytes has been growing, Railsware has been able to scale up really quickly, has been super flexible with changing products, changing demands with us internally, has been able to integrate very successfully with our engineering teams.

Railsware has been very integral in helping make some key decisions to help BrightBytes grow.

What the Inception process has done within BrightBytes is really brought some structure to the product management process and deep understanding of what we're building.
