What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
We deployed our full product stack
on powerful hardware for a car manufacturer with high ambitions. Our engineering team was on fire and we pushed out features and designs that ran perfectly on target sprint after sprint. However, one day, we received word that the customer was forced to reduce content for reasons beyond our control. Our project had been cancelled.
But, we didn’t let this beat us down. Instead we went into an even higher gear and created a self-sufficient professional services practice using our combined expertise to deliver software development services to OEMs and Tier-1s and to support their projects. This turned out to be one of the best decisions we’ve ever made.
Strategic service assignments were pouring in and we actually grew from this experience. To enable greater delivery capacity, we hired new brains and acquired Mocean Laboratories – our former parent company. We also secured key partnerships such as with Elektrobit, the company behind the joint venture with Audi for high-end Infotainment systems. We were back: stronger and better than ever.
