“It was great working with the Transcality team, to get a glimpse into their innovative solution for real time traffic prediction. Also as a startup, they’re really flexible and focused on the task at hand – which resulted overall in a highly productive and successful project.

The success here is really due to flexibility from both sides, and the frequent alignments to focus on the right course of action and Transcality’s extremely established vision. We were always able to adjust to their needs accordingly and very quickly, and built a sound solution for them to take their first steps into Azure cloud.”
