Quoin provided a dedicated team of software engineers as part of ENGIE Insight’s strategic initiative to overhaul its analytics platform, which leverages technology and data collection to help clients identify opportunities to reduce energy consumption and costs. Quoin’s dedicated project team was responsible for the system architecture, design, and implementation of the new membership platform and online community.
ENGIE Insights (now called ENGIE Impact) is a leading provider of resource management, sustainability services, and energy utilization analytics. Part of ENGIE Group, its multinational energy, and utility parent company, ENGIE Insights develops technology-driven solutions to help businesses manage their energy and water use, waste generation, and supply costs. They rely on sophisticated data analytics to track trends and advise clients on ways to increase efficiency and save money.
In 2018, Quoin was hired by ENGIE Insights to join a company-wide project to re-engineer their Energy & Sustainability Management Platform, with a new Microsoft technology stack of Azure and Cosmos DB. In particular, our team focused on developing an account management component with a C#/.NET-based workflow, billing analytics, and ticketing applications to provide reliable task creation and tracking for customers and operational staff. In addition to implementing platform architecture, the Quoin engineers worked to align the enterprise UI/UX with the overall project visual direction. We were responsible for adding new UI libraries to the application in order to provide a more robust, feature-rich platform for ENGIE Insights clients.
Throughout the year-long project, our team supported the adoption of Agile at ENGIE Insights by demonstrating best practices and sharing knowledge of the software development life cycle. Our participation in important Agile processes (such as iterative sprints, daily Scrums, and the ‘Scrum of Scrums’) helped to enhance skills, reinforce buy-in, and facilitate the organization’s overall Agile transition.
