bytemine and Behälter KG - Software development with Ruby on Rails

Posted by Felix Kronlage on Thursday, July 15, 2010

Behälter KG, a company from Bremen, Germany, is among the leaders in sales of used special steel containers in Europe. Their storage contains roughly 1500 containers on 15.000 square meters.

The successful collaboration between bytemine and Behälter KG began in 2008 as the container databases were redesigned. This was done as part of the website relaunch with the aim of easing the task of finding suitable containers online. In order to meet the customer requirements at their best and being able to easily handle any changing requirements in the future,
the web framework Ruby on Rails was chosen.

Ruby on Rails supports the developers to achieve high-quality results even in face of changing requirements in the development process. Later requirements and changes of functionality can be easily integrated.

By now the rails application has been deeply integrated into the daily workflow of Behälter KG and has become one of the company’s central applications.

“The new container database enables us to assist our customers even better”, says Peter Schüler, “and shortens the time to find a suitable container, while delivering all the necessary details, such as technical specs, images and drawings”.

For Peter Schüler the collaboration with bytemine means to work with an innovative service provider who values future-oriented thinking highly and regards customer satisfaction as his prime concern.

“Since the launch of the new online container database our customers find containers much easier”, observes Peter Schüler, CEO of Behälter KG.
