Business Challenge:

Established in 2001, Digital Mettle is a technology consulting and custom software development company based in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. The key challenges that Digital Mettle was facing prior to meeting Daffodil were:

  • Expanding service offerings and new technology adoption: Digital Mettle's need to reinvent themselves and keep upto the constant evolution of technologies was of utmost importance as technologies are evolving in leaps and bounds
  • Accelerating product deliveries: It was becoming critical for them to deliver projects within tight timelines and recruiting talent with niche skill set had become a difficult task at hand.
  • Optimizing costs: It was imperative for them to minimize their expenditures and improve the overall ROI as they were a growth-stage-company

Engagement with Daffodil:

Digital Mettle had their reservations in the beginning about Daffodil’s ability to understand their requirements and deliver as per their expectations. Hence, the association started with a pilot project in which one of Digital Mettle’s Windows based mobile app was to be migrated into Android and iOS versions, which Daffodil delivered a way earlier than expected timelines; with utmost code quality and designs.


The skepticism soon paved a way for a sense of confidence in Daffodil’s abilities and Digital Mettle realized that Daffodil was a partner that most ISVs could only aspire for. Throughout this engagement, which has now spanned over 6 years, Daffodil’s value addition to Digital Mettle is evident by our ability to:

  • Deliver multiple projects ranging from varied industries like healthcare, real estate, ecommerce, defense, pharmaceuticals and sports within strict timelines.
  • Shift their technology focus from traditional technologies like DotNet to latest technologies like AngularJS, ReactJS, Sencha Touch, etc., and eventually helping them to expand their service offerings.
  • Manage end-to-end software product lifecycle including conceptualization, designing, wire framing, code development, testing and documentation of their projects.
  • Deliver projects within strict timelines with ease due to flexible scaling of crossing functional teams, complimented with Agile driven development methodology.

The Impact

  • Digital Mettle has been able to expand their market to newer industries and technologies, which was initially limited to Healthcare and DotNet.
  • Digital Mettle was able to focus on the core business development, which resulted in 5 fold growth in revenue in past 4 years.

“We met Daffodil 4 years ago, and since then we have increased our revenue by five-folds. When you are looking for a technology partner, you should look no further than Daffodil."
