Problem:

One of the biggest BAS customers came from the trading industry, giving assertive media resource allocation to advise clients on how to increase conversions in their business.
The rapid growth of their business was causing a tremendous pressure to BAS to come up with rapid ideas, development, and deployment to test them against focus groups every month.

 

Solution:

Handpicked a team of four software engineers. All of them with a high profile on innovation techniques such as: google sprint, design thinking, product clinic, brainstorming, card sorting, and others.
Then, integrated them into BAS’ software development team. Augmenting their staff gradually when an important knowledge of the customer’s digital platform was learned.
Finally, the new team started shooting new ideas, new business opportunities implementing many of them as POC (proof of concept), each of them in less than 2 weeks.

More than 14 POC deployed to market, in less than a year.
Three of them became projects, currently producing new revenue.
