The KB&G experts have more than 30 years of experience in construction materials. With such an impressive knowledge base behind their backs, they know the challenges that concrete, aggregate, and asphalt manufacturers face daily. While aspects affecting a company’s commercial excellence are numerous, inefficient pricing and quotation processes are among the most impactful factors.
Another distinctive feature of the construction materials industry is the reluctance to let go of legacy proprietary systems that are hard to refactor and may need complete rewriting. This substantial technical debt is a major deterrent to embracing innovation and change.
KB&G had a clear vision of how these obstacles could be addressed to optimize the workflows, reduce manual labor, and increase profit margins. Our task was to take that vision and design & implement its technical side.
KB&G needed someone who would be ready to fully immerse into the industry specifics, do a lot of math, and write tons of algorithms to select the most suitable ones. On top of that, we were expected to develop a solution that would assure data communication between KB&G’s innovative product and their clients’ legacy systems, often lacking proper documentation.
