The customer’s challenge

Avantium developed the Flowrence, a parallel fixed-bed reactor system. This system is based on their core competence, R&D of chemical processes. To achieve a fast time-to-market with high quality software, they needed to outsource the software’s development and maintenance.

Sioux's contribution

Sioux has started working on custom driver development, using modern software development processes such as Agile and Continuous Integration. Short development iteration cycles have resulted in valuable feedback from the customer, thus ensuring solid project monitoring and on-time delivery.

Result

Avantium is able to focus on their core competence by outsourcing key technology to Sioux as their software development partner. Avantium has outsourced the complete software development and maintenance for the Flowrence product to Sioux. This made it possible for them to go to market earlier and at lower costs.

Technology

Windows 7 64-bit, .NET 4.0, C#, SVN, Visual Studio 2010, SQL Server 2012 Express, RS 232 and driver development.
