Not only in direct contact with us, their first line of contact, but also in interaction with many of the managements, virtually all of them, such as development or portfolio, that performance has been good; they have always supported us, not only technically but also strategically, to improve all the services. It was great job.

What is the value that Premium Consulting has added during the processes that has intervened?

Quite a bit. They really have given us a guide, a way to do things better, to have strategy, not only based on knowledge, but a truly way to do things better and easier.

It was fundamental in DevOps, defining the structure and organization of DevOps which we had not defined, they helped us a lot, and we were able to implement it together.

Nowadays, after having a year with Premium services, we realize a drastic change from what we had a year ago with the previous provider. With the service that Premium has given to us, we already have a number of important gains, automatic deployments, pipelines, branches management, reports generation, QA processes; we are working on portfolio management. Premium has helped us to organize a lot, to organize our home, so the services are provided in a good way and at the end, you can see a return of the investment towards us.

Yeah, definitely. First, I would recommend them because they have the knowledge, the expertise, and a lot of tactics. They are open in that sense; More than a supplier I see them as a strategic partner that helps us to improve the indicators and the operating conditions that we have.
