Development Manager of Biocid, Heikki Laaksonen worked as project manager for the full system devellopment. He highlights the importance of the specification work and agile methods as basis of a successful project. “Because schedules are often challenging, high expertise and quick grasp of customer needs are required”, says Mr. Laaksonen.

We looked for a solution provider that would be a reliable, yet flexible enterprise. Prosys was selected because they use agile methods and industry knowledge. In software projects one of the biggest challenges is to complete the task in the planned schedule. Prosys estimated the required work realistically and delivered the software solution as agreed, although the project schedule was demanding. For reliability, I would say they are top rate.”
