case study: Neopost

Client

Neopost is a pioneer in the development and evolution of mailing and logistics equipment technology. With 3000 employees, Neopost is the number-one supplier of mailroom equipment in Europe and the second largest in the world.

 

Business Challenge

Neopost was preparing for sustained growth, global operations, and an IPO, and the legacy systems could not support their needs for scalability, multi-site operations, integrated business processes, timely access to information, and financial reporting.

 

Why Quovera?

On the business side, Quovera had experience deploying best practices. On the technical side, our Development Methodology, our reusable code components, and our experience with large-scale custom development projects gave a lot of confidence to Neopost. And we had managed projects of this magnitude, bringing much-needed change management skills to this complex project.
