For a small lab, being able to do more with less is a requirement. The DevCraft suite empowers the SoDak Labs development team do just that, enabling Baszler to design and develop many of the technologies and applications that power the lab.
The time saved in development is apparent with each project. For example, Baszler recently used DevCraft controls to convert a form to help the lab search on more columns, saving four to six days of full development.
“DevCraft has more than paid for itself many times over,” Baszler explained. “Depending on what I am looking to do, I can save a couple hours here and a few days there. Overall, I’d say the DevCraft suite has helped us cut our development time by 40%, which is pretty significant.”
Beyond that, the tools have made the lives of clients easier as well, particularly the feature-rich website. It is easy to use, fast and information can be submitted and retrieved in a simple and straight-forward manner.
Moving forward, SoDak Labs expects to get even more value out of its DevCraft investment. Baszler plans to explore other ways to use Progress tools to further improve the SoDak Labs website and applications, with reporting and testing features being particular points of interest.
SoDak Labs may be small, but with a team of industry veterans, the expectations are high. The lab strives to compete with other major players in the field without compromise. With Progress tools, the lab is able to punch above its weight and develop powerful technology solutions and software, even with a small development team.
