Defining What Technology Means For Cambria
Cambria has been a world-class producer of quartz countertops for 20 years. With so many moving parts — from manufacturing to customization to point of sales — there are plenty of opportunities to streamline processes and make things more efficient with technology. As the company sought to expand its use of technology, it first needed to determine how it wanted to structure its delivery teams from a digital transformation standpoint.
Increased Velocity to Tackle a Growing Backlog
The next evolution of our partnership came at the end of the kiosk project. Cambria needed to increase its development velocity so they opted to keep one team member from the kiosk project on board as a full-time, dedicated developer. Together with Cambria’s in-house Scrum team, they worked through a backlog of work for the digital kiosk as well as several other web platforms. In addition to that dedicated developer, Cambria leveraged our Continuation Engineering team to get ahead of some incremental enhancements to several applications before winding it down and opting for a half-time quality assurance analyst.
Ramp Up to Replatform
After laying the groundwork in the previous two engagements, we were ready to take on some larger digital transformations with Cambria. Over the course of six months in 2018, we worked with their team to completely re-platform their website. Via a full staff augmentation, we provided a lift and shift while updating a few key components of functionality. For this undertaking, Cambria ramped up its existing dedicated team with an additional three developers and another QA. Our Experience Design team also helped redesign some of Cambria’s highest-traffic online conversion tools.
Increased Velocity Part Two: The Commerce Edition
Through the end of the website replatform, all of our work with Cambria was done with its marketing Scrum team which handles all of the development work for the company’s public-facing tech platforms. As the web project wound down, Cambria spun up a dedicated team of three developers and two QAs to increase the velocity of its commerce Scrum team. This team handles the technology behind Cambria’s e-commerce and sales platform.
