Earth Technology Integration
ETI provides ‘Emergency Operations Center’ software solutions: web-apps that government entities rely on in times of crisis. Designli provides full-time development support to help maintain, and iterate on, these systems’ feature sets.
The software need?
We were approached by Earth Technology Integration’s leadership team after having successfully built their suite of software applications through a decade of engineering work and secured government contracts.
What ETI needed help with was ongoing maintenance of the robust software system, including new design and development work for additional web-apps that are spun up for new contract awards.
Step into the SolutionLab
The SolutionLab is Designli's two-week prototyping and roadmapping session. Going through this process helped our team fully uncover ETI’s business model, learn about its existing software ecosystem, and thoroughly document the first project to be tackled.
UX/UI Design & Prototype
Our Graphic Design & Prototyping process proved helpful for stakeholder validation for the new interface for our ‘pilot project’ - which tied into the existing look-and-feel of the rest of the ETI web-apps.
However, even more valuable was having a Designli Product Owner (with Graphic Design prowess) head up the development team thereafter, helping manage the Dedicated Product Team and provide design mockups across any new features or systems that were being rolled out.
Today, our Product Owner is the key design resource that ETI relies on across all its systems.
Agile development, launch, and ongoing product iteration
Today, Designli provides a Dedicated Product Team to help support the existing ETI software ecosystem, and to build new features or entire systems when new government contracts demand it. With a full-time Front-end Web developer, Backend Web developer, and part-time Product Owner / Graphic Designer, EIT is humming along with regularly-scheduled product update and review meetings and an organized system for managing its features backlog.

Communicating clearly from the start, Designli’s team inspires confidence throughout the project. They're my guide throughout all these steps.
Their consistent communication, responsiveness, and ability to work with an inexperienced founder make them a valuable partner.
