First Place Application Development

Words like performance, innovation, and technology come to mind with the Ferrari driving experience and its IT should meet that same standard. With an automated system that was months away and a manual purchasing process that was costing them the winner’s circle, they came to mindSHIFT seeking a temporary solution that would put them back in first place.

To make the right recommendation, we worked with representatives from Ferrari North America and Masterpiece to fully understand their business challenges and objectives. We leveraged the company’s existing SharePoint intranet portal to build an automated purchase order request workflow that would economize the entire process, shifting its culture towards greater accountability and streamlined procurement. With mindSHIFT, Ferrari North America has a go-to partner for applications that can custom create and implement solutions quickly and correctly.

Hear it from Them

From a development standpoint, mindSHIFT really understood the technology aspects of what we needed—dropdowns of all our suppliers, cost centers and key data. They also understood what we didn’t need because we weren’t going to be using this application for the next 10 years.” 

If we need an add-on piece, we know we can get exactly what we need from mindSHIFT to make our company more efficient and shore up our processes. If you’re looking for a specialized module for some functionality that you’ve been missing, I’d recommend enlisting the expertise of mindSHIFT.”
