Kettle River has had many successful engagements over the past several years. Here are highlights of some of them:
Graco is a large manufacturer of fluid management systems for use in painting, lubrication, and other applications. Kettle River worked with Graco to create the latest version of Graco’s fluid management system called Matrix 3. Matrix 3 is used to monitor the usage of fluids in automobile repair shops and fleet repair depots. Matrix 3 also has the ability to connect to dealer management systems to provide a completely automated fluid tracking and billing solution.
Brent Huhta, Graco’s project lead for the Matrix project, summarizes his experience with Kettle River this way:
“Kettle River has done an excellent job in helping Graco create a new, next-generation fluid management software product. We have found their experience, technical knowledge, and sound software engineering practices to be extremely helpful in bringing our client-server application to market. Our application required integration with Graco fluid dispensing/monitoring equipment and had to be scalable from small single-PC systems to systems consisting of dozens of networked PCs; at the same time, it needed to be user-friendly to both installer and end user, not requiring advanced IT knowledge. Our project was professionally managed and successfully delivered. As additional development personnel were needed to meet schedule, Kettle River was able to provide the necessary qualified staffing sufficient for the work. To summarize, a very positive experience.”
