WeSuite, a software manufacturer of sales management tools for technology sales and service providers, announces that its corporate-wide implementation of DevOps best practices has positioned the company at the forefront of software developers prepared to meet market demand for more agile and responsive solutions.
The transformation of WeSuite’s entire business model to drive its organisational performance puts it at a distinct advantage in its ability to deliver a premium user experience and value to its customers in the Security, IT, AV and electrical contracting and service industries. Benefits include faster and more frequent feature updates to its software, more reliable performance with fewer errors, and the ability to respond more quickly and directly to customer feedback.
Sales management platform
A 2018 survey reported by website statista.com reports that only 17% of software companies, worldwide, have fully embraced DevOps. At the same time, Forrester Research reports that 64% of companies are dissatisfied with how long it takes them to release new features to customers, and only 23% of enterprises are issuing new releases at least once a month.
In addition, it offers third-party integrations with applications for financial ERP, document signing and storage, parts database and pricing
The WeSuite sales management platform encompasses a suite of software solutions along with a wide range of tightly integrated add-on modules capable of automating all sales functions from ‘contact to contract’. In addition, it offers third-party integrations with applications for financial ERP, document signing and storage, parts database and pricing, lead automation and calendar/contact sync.
DevOps Empowers WeSuite
DevOps empowers WeSuite to update its code with confidence that changes made in one area of its software will not have unintended consequences elsewhere. This is possible through the implementation of coding standards that partition all software components into self-contained units and rigorous, automated testing procedures for all code modifications prior to release.
Based on initial deployment of DevOps methodologies, the company has seen a 25% increase in the quality of its code with more improvement to come, along with a 50% decrease in the time required to release new code. Customers can now anticipate new releases as frequently as every 90 days. WeSuite will closely monitor its customers’ appetite for the cadence of releases and will increase or scale back velocity accordingly.
“WeSuite’s customers know that the best way to maximise their technology sales is to employ the right sales technology. With our full embrace of DevOps best practices, we are positioned to provide sales management software that can quickly grow and evolve with our customers’ needs. The tools they invest in now will remain equally fresh and relevant years from now,” said Tracy Larson, WeSuite’s President.
