Clients often turn to rb2 for the technical realization of platforms from phase zero. We start with a project from the idea in someone's head, also called greenfield projects. Together with the customer, we determine which direction we will take through refinement sessions and technical deep-dive sessions. This way the idea is increasingly taking shape and there is sufficient technical foundation to start the development.
rb2 has a lot of experience with the technical realization of greenfield e-commerce platforms, loyalty platforms, and subscription models, but our greenfield projects can simply take all kinds of forms. For example, we have created an online platform for Meetingselect for searching and booking meeting rooms that were one of the top 50 fastest-growing tech companies in the Netherlands for five consecutive years. And for GoBear we realized a meta-search solution for comparing insurances in the Asian market that won the prestigious 'Best Startup Award' from NTCC in 2017 and has been rolled out in seven countries with more than 30 million users annually.
Thanks to our extensive experience with greenfield projects, we know how to ask the right questions to our customers in order to translate digital issues into concrete technical solutions. We work in sprints in which continuously operating software is delivered, ready for use. In addition, our teams use CI / CD tools such as Azure DevOps and Github Actions that make code deployment faster. We use unit tests, integration tests and end-to-end tests to ensure a stable platform. This way an MVP can be established at a rapid pace and we help clients to test whether the developed functionality meets the wishes of end-users in reality. Furthermore, working in sprints ensures that we only develop what is needed at a certain moment. This way the working software can be put into use immediately and results are quickly visible. At rb2 we understand that a scalable platform and development team are essential for a startup. Because of our large development team, we are enormously scalable and our teams can continuously scale up and down. This way we support the path from startup to scale-up and we build applications that form the heart of a company.
Ivonne Bojoh, CTO of GoBear explains how rb2 has helped her as a technical partner on the path from greenfield to Asia's leading personal finance supermarket with 100,000 daily visitors.
