What the client needed
Operating in the fast-paced media industry means that Euromoney must regularly create new content-driven applications for its customers and employees. It was getting more and more difficult to handle the workload, therefore our client decided to outsource part of their software development.

Scope of work
We started working for Euromoney in 2009 with just four software engineers. In the course of our partnership as many as 70 people worked for the client running up to 15 projects at once. At the very beginning, we provided teams of different levels of expertise, managed by the client. However, in the following months, the team doubled, while its output multiplied.
We have implemented solutions in the following areas:
Business & Marketing
Surveys & Questionnaires
Web & Windows services
Events & Meeting Planning
Searching & Indexing
The workload continued to grow and more skills have been added to the team including:
- Quality Assurance engineers – nearly 20 testers, representing over a third of the team
- Developers responsible for web applications, back-office configurations, internal systems and upgrading software
- Security engineers and testing experts
We implemented a kind of mentoring system, where developers and quality assurance engineers work closely together.
Our close collaboration brought huge benefits to both sides. It also helped to create the relationship, which worked effectively, regardless of different locations.
Communication as a key success factor
In such a large project it is important that communication is open and regular, that’s why we constantly try to improve this process. The approach that proved to work best is visiting the client at the beginning of each project to fully understand the technical aspects and business needs.
Apart from emails, team leaders make weekly calls to discuss progress on different projects. In addition, there are frequent face-to-face meetings.
However, what is really worth highlighting here, is the fact that almost every member of our team has daily video calls with engineers from Euromoney, including those on the business side as well.
Main benefits of our partnership
- keeping development costs down while delivering higher volumes of software, without any compromises on quality,
- access to competencies going beyond software development,
- modernised and streamlined applications due to the use of new technology and best practices,
- gaining a long-term, trustworthy software development partner.
