Crosslake drove the effort to consolidate platforms from multiple acquisitions. Consolidating to a single platform significantly improved service margins and user experience.
Crosslake has been assisting since our acquisition and subsequent merger with another company, as a result we had a large product portfolio, broad range of engineering systems and tools. It was a significant effort to integrate the engineering teams, standardize our engineering processes and to rationalize our product portfolio. Crosslake was a tremendous help to us in all of those areas, with their recommendations and assistance in implementation, we were able to see immediate results and transformation within our organization.
After a period of unprecedented growth, we found that our existing processes and execution models were inhibiting our ability to be truly successful. Crosslake was instrumental in helping us to identify improvement opportunities and implementing sustainable solutions. Morale is up, our velocity has increased and with every step forward we are embracing change and striving for success.
