Go Rentals is a leading car rentals company offering their services nationwide to customers from all corners of the globe.
As a growing business, the evolution of Go Rentals IT systems has been at the forefront of their success. Go Rentals has overcome the demands of ever-changing technologies, accomplishing external compliancy requirements, and managing an internal development team.
Augen was engaged to support Go Rentals and help improve their development processes. During this time, Augen introduced the agile development process - Scrum, and supplemented the Go Rentals team with developer resources from New Zealand and Vietnam. Projects successfully completed, include enhancing Go Rentals customer-facing website and management web portal, working with complex legacy code, and introducing leading edge technologies into existing systems.

Kiwa Digital is the world's leading production house for experiential digital books, having won numerous awards for titles such as Hairy Mclary and the prestigious Hollywood Post Alliance Engineering Excellence Award for their software product, Voice-Q.
As the business grew, Kiwa had challenges in scaling to meet the increasing demands created by their own success.
With fuzzy deadlines and loose requirements, staff were showing signs of losing motivation and commitment. Management were frustrated by the lack of visibility on production progress, and despite Kiwa’s best efforts Customers started to find deliverable dates slipping.
Augen has been consulting and providing additional developer resources for Kiwa’s Android and iOS projects, and so we were already connecting with Kiwa about operational and strategic topics when this need came to light. As a result Augen set out to find a production and development process that would fit Kiwa and settled on Lean/Agile methods to deliver weekly deliverables. This provided increasing clarity for the team, a sense of deadline, visibility for management and a culture of continuous improvement.
Augen Software Group was engaged by a leading transport and logistics company to redevelop their core software system. Their existing system was essential to the business as it was being utilised by hundreds of end users including operators, truck drivers and administration staff. However, the system was built on very old technologies and this was creating many business problems that needed to be addressed. It was time to undergo a major rewrite of the system.
One of the main challenges during the development was that the new software needed to retain the functionality and feel of the original software whilst still creating a modernised and effective product. The users did not want to change their working patterns and understanding in order to learn new IT processes.
The project outputs included a software suite which included new desktop and mobile app interfaces. The operational benefits included; faster and easier business processes (including the loading of vehicles into the fleet management system), the improved tracking of vehicle deliveries, tidy and concise data management and a photo capture interface to record and track vehicle damage.
Augen designed and built this disruptive SAAS product for RoleWorks.
Augen’s NZ-based team architected and managed the project delivering a modern, scalable “serverless” web solution, working transparently with client product owners and investors. Augen’s Vietnam development and testing team built the software ensuring RoleMap is fast and robust and meets our clients’ needs.
Augen’s off-shore/insourcing model allows the team to spin up and down as required providing huge savings over permanent employment or NZ-only outsourced teams. In 2017 the RoleMap post-production team at Augen delivered six enhancement sprints, with 90% Vietnam team utilisation and a saving of more than 60% over equivalent ‘NZ only’ production rates.
A broad number of members of the Augen team have skills and experience on Role Map project, giving RoleWorks the confidence and availability of a large support team.
