Projects like Fongo Works are revolutionizing how Canadian businesses communicate. Fongo Works is a free, cloud-based phone system that offers small businesses the freedom of free national calling, voicemail, and a customized auto-attendant all using existing cell phones. The Vehikl team was tasked with consulting on full end-to-end delivery of user interface design, front-end development, and back-end development.
Piscimetrix is an online performance benchmarking system that allows aquaculture producers to improve their performance and profitability by allowing them to confidentially compare data with other producers in the sector. Vehikl acted as technical co-founders on this project, working closely with scientific staff to turn their sophisticated algorithms into an intuitive web-based application.
Vehikl has found it is the best way to satisfy their customers by keeping them involved and engaged throughout the development cycle. As co-founder Chris Keithlin said, “The agile manifesto guides our work and our engagements with clients. This leads them to be partners rather than enemies.”
