DC Byte is a world-leading, London based company which provides an enterprise SaaS platform for market analytics in the data centre industry. That includes both user-generated data from multiple data centre operators, and the company’s own researched content.
“It’s fair to say that Motion Software were instrumental in transforming our product from from the germ of an idea into an industry-leading platform. With Motion Software we have a development team which can scale headcount up and down as business needs require while retaining a core group which is familiar with our product. I look forward to continuing to work with Motion Software for many years to come and would be happy to recommend them to anyone.”
– Edward Galvin, CEO of DC Byte
Once their MVP web app and on-boarding the first few customers, DC Byte contacted us as they wanted to quickly iterate and improve the platform’s UX with feedback from early adopters. Our goal was to wrap this phase up as quickly as possible, so we could pursue the long-term vision of DC Byte.
At that time, the client aimed to successfully launch their first SaaS product from the suite (an enterprise site selection tool for the data centre sector), as well as to prepare a later move into the data and analytics space with DC Byte Analytics.
Motion Software initially provided a dedicated Project Manager and a developer. Our first focus for the product was improving the existing platform features and development processes, which were taken on board by the newly assembled engineering team. The UX team prototyped and designed the first SaaS product — DC Byte SiteSelector (now called Project Planner), the launch of which helped our client form new partnerships with some of the biggest real estate companies in the world.
After the expansion of the team with two more developers and a skilled QA, in preparation for DC Byte Analytics, we architected and designed a system utilising the client’s research capacity and blending it with a variety of external data sources to produce interactive market and company reports. This created a product which gives its users a complete overview of the trends in the data centre industry.
Since partnering with Motion Software in 2019, DC Byte has received a series of funding rounds and expanded its operations in multiple locations across Europe, Asia and North America. Currently, the company is growing internationally and is looking to keep innovating by launching new products in the DC Byte suite. Motion Software continues to support the client with a remote expert team of 5 developers, 1 QA and a Project Manager.
