President, Griley Airfreight

" I cannot thank the Wilder Innovation team enough for their outstanding service and support. They went above and beyond to help me take control of my company's software and data after one of our software engineers held it ransom. Their diligence and expertise were truly impressive, and they worked tirelessly to create a secure hierarchy for my company and ensure that our database was no longer vulnerable.

What really stood out to me was the level of care and commitment that the Wilder Innovation team demonstrated throughout the entire process. They cared about helping me navigate this difficult situation, and their dedication to solving the problem was unmatched. I felt confident and reassured throughout the entire process, knowing that I was in good hands.

I would highly recommend Wilder Innovation to anyone who needs help with their technology needs. They are experts in their field, and their commitment to providing excellent service and support is truly exceptional. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with them, and I will continue to use them in the future for any technology-related needs that arise. Thank you so much for all your help!"

Griley Airfreight is more than just a trucking company. It's a family business with a reputation for excellent service and customer care. With over 100 units on the road, they have become a trusted name in air freight and transportation services. What sets them apart is their commitment to meeting each of their customers' unique needs and requirements. To achieve this, Griley Airfreight has invested in cutting-edge technology that provides efficient and reliable service. From their multiple avenues for electronic data interchange to their GPS tracking system, E Logs, and warehouse management/inventory systems, they have streamlined their operations to ensure their customers receive the best possible service.

With success comes new problems. First, being a family business, Griley Airfreight's technology assets were managed by a single person, who, upon leaving, left the company in a critical situation. Technology had become a core part of their business; without it, they could not operate. Second, while the technology was impressive given the small team that built it, Griley Airfreight had just entered the technology arena; with the new success, cracks were starting to show; reliability was becoming an issue. They needed an interim CTO to help them regain complete control of their technology assets, deploy them to a new cloud environment, hire a development team, and get their engineering processes back on track.

The Wilder Innovation team was brought in as interim CTOs to help Griley Airfreight recover and secure their technology assets, deploy them to a new cloud environment, and hire a development team to get their engineering processes back on track. We started by analyzing their existing technology stack and identifying areas where we could modernize it. We then helped them fully migrate to the cloud, which reduced costs and improved scalability.

We established software engineering best practices like code reviews, set up a staging environment, and set up continuous integration, which improved the quality of their code resulting in fewer outages and higher velocity. We also helped define their product roadmap and managed their overall software architecture. In addition to this, our team leads their sprints and runs the entire software development lifecycle. We also assist with coaching their engineers to ensure that they are developing their skills and keeping up with industry best practices.

With the help of Wilder Innovation, Griley Airfreight has regained control of its technology assets, streamlined its SDLC, and fully migrated to the cloud. Our team's efforts have significantly improved code quality, resulting in fewer outages and higher productivity. Griley Airfreight can now better define its product roadmap and manage overall software architecture, leading them to become a leader in a competitive and rapidly changing market. With a focus on its core business and a robust technology platform, Griley Airfreight is well-positioned for continued success.
