Lumbee Enterprises specializes in quality control for the automotive manufacturing industry. The company works with such clients as BMW, Volkswagen, Caterpillar and Volvo Truck to inspect or re-work 20 million parts a year. We partnered with Lumbee to overhaul a web-based software application that runs the entire business. This software follows every single project from kick-off to status reports to the ﬁnal invoice.
The Power of Team Development
Lumbee worked with a solo developer to build this app over four years. With a team of developers and designers, Gaslight made signiﬁcant improvements in just 12 weeks. These software upgrades improved Lumbee’s productivity, proﬁts and client relationships.
“Gaslight is a partner because they really, truly understand the issues we’re trying to overcome to help our customers.”

Spending a Development Budget Where It Counts Most
We built this Web-based application with Ruby on Rails and Backbone.js. Plus, we moved the app from a single server in the client’s ofﬁce to Heroku. This cloud-based platform allows the app to scale with business demands. It also eliminates the headaches of server maintenance.
