Challenge
Industry-veteran needed to turn a great product idea into reality
After achieving much industry success, the founder of Projecis had a wealth of domain knowledge in clinical research and project management.  He wanted to modernize the way project team members do their job, by leveraging the benefits of video and online sharing. As a start-up business, Projecis needed to find technical talent to turn its vision into a working and secure software platform that could be successfully launched to the competitive project management marketplace.
