We will turn your startup into a successful company
Monks got involved in the Price f(x) project within their startup studio, where they provide technical consultations and development in exchange for equity - as an investment. Price f(x) is a proof TopMonks has the expertise and qualification to assist you in turning your startup into a successful multi-national corporation.
They saw a little sense in how CPQ solutions were built
In the beginning, there were a bunch of people with experience in automated price calculation (CPQ software) who saw little sense in how CPQ solutions were built at that time. Robust systems were overpriced, required installation on customer premises, significant customer-side resources (financial, personal and technical), installation and configuration took ages, and any modification or upgrade was a living nightmare.
Product would greatly benefit from cloud technologies
Pricing is vital for customers, however often unrelated to their core business. In other words almost a perfect definition of a product that would greatly benefit from cloud technologies, a field where TopMonks feels at home. Thus a customer has a service that deals with his vital problem available and can freely focus on his core business development.
Partnership with TopMonks remains
Partnership with TopMonks remains even after Price f(x) release. However, the role has shifted towards providing consulting professionals, technical support to the rapidly expanding customer portfolio and also helping to improve UX which is yet another strong suit in TopMonks' skill closet.
Technologies used for this project are the following: Spring, Google Web Toolkit, Groovy, Camel Apache, Ember.js, MySQL, Postgresql, Hazelcast, Jetty, React.
