Rising Sun Energy Center is a nonprofit organisation based in Berkeley, California, which runs programs addressing climate change and unemployment. They were looking for a Ruby on Rails (RoR) developer to help update and improve an application managing one of their key programs: Green Home Call service.
With only 13 weeks for a complex app reorganisation and development, Netguru had no time to lose. Weekly budgeting, projects updates, use of Pivotal Tracker and real-time Slack communication helped the team meet the deadline.
A few months after Netguru took over the app development, Green Home Call service had a brand new RoR app. It tracks scheduling, identifies clients, collects data on the appliances installed in the households (tens of thousands of items), calculates energy savings and tracks inventory. It also supports invoice processing and project progress.
