Meeting Solution Provider
Since 2004, PowWowNow has been providing the UK businesses with powerful solutions for multi-user conference calls of various kinds. But, in 2021, their core service has been discontinued and moved to a new upgraded audio-conferencing service with Premiere Global Services (PGi).
Some companies start outsourcing because they think it's cheaper, but in fact it's not. You shouldn't do it to save money, you should do it if you want to hire several senior Python developers in the next two months, which is possible in Eastern Europe and probably not possible in the UK.
We conducted several email marketing campaigns targeting potential British clients at the end of 2016. These proved to be very successful.
Among many replies we had, this one stood out: “Hi there. I have a project that I am considering bringing in some external resources for. It’s an application that is built in-house that we need to add some new features.”. It was exactly the type of project we were looking for. We contacted this potential client and kicked off this cooperative endeavor almost the next day.
Challenge & Solution
PowWowNow required a skilled team of engineers with substantial telecom expertise to modernize their current products and develop new functionality. Additionally, the client needed to migrate from the monolithic architecture to microservices, as well as ensure the security of the platform and its compliance with regulations. Echo’s engineering expertise (one of the developers, Mykhailo, is in the picture above) and vast experience have helped the client to attain their objectives faster and accelerate the digital transformation of the product.
