Case Study: Dealerware Expands Internationally with Tiempo

Dealerware is a modern fleet management company for modern automotive retailers.

Dealerware hired Tiempo Development in 2020 to help the company expand internationally and address some legacy issues that had become problematic with the company’s impressive growth. According to Bryce Hendrix, Dealerware’s Lead Platform Architect, “to internationalize the SaaS application requires more that just support for multiple languages, multiple currencies and multiple date formats. Each country has its own rules and regulations that the platform must conform to.” The initial expansion is planned for Canada in early 2021, to be followed by European countries.

One of the challenges facing Tiempo was deadlines. According to Tiempo’s Engagement Release Manager, Ricardo Angulo Corona, “To meet the deadlines it was clear from the start that we would have to hit the ground running. So we staffed the development project with very senior engineers that had significant experience internationalizing applications. As a result, they were able to start coding and delivering value from Sprint 0. The team completed the majority of development work in 90 days, leaving an additional 45 days to focus on testing and QA.
