2008 Winner Profile

UniGroup

Project Description:
UniGroup deployed the Store and Move (SAM) system to support its new container-services subsidiary, which it launched to compete with similar companies such as Portable On Demand Storage (PODS). The system was developed in-house using the Agile software-development methodology and a service-oriented-architecture (SOA) approach to increase the probability of creating systems with immediate business value that could evolve with changing market conditions. To date, the SAM business unit has signed 90 dealers, has extended its market presence to 55 metropolitan areas, and has the second-largest share of the one-way container move market.
