So, what kinds of things do our consultants work on? Here are a few recent developer stories...

From Curb to Ship in under 10 minutes:

An international cruise ship company asked Daugherty to help them revolutionize and streamline the process of checking in passengers. The Daugherty team developed the NextGen Embarkation system, including a mobile, gesture driven solution to manage the distributed team of check-in agents at the terminal, and a web-based configuration management tool for corporate and support staff. The mobile solution is a Windows Store app running on Windows 8.1 tablet devices. The web-based configuration management tool was developed in Java and AngularJS. Both the Windows Store app and the AngularJS UI communicate with NGE and 3rd party servers via RESTful web services. NextGen Embarkation has been a huge success for our client, enabling them to improve passenger check-in and boarding times from 45 minutes curb-to-ship to only 10 minutes curb-to-ship, a transformational and revolutionary change for the cruise ship industry. Team size – 1st phase – 15 Daugherty Employees.

Digital River:

This was a Daugherty owned project for a Global e-commerce client. We developed a catalog intake system (similar to iTunes) to be publishable across the world. Nearly a dozen team members worked in an Agile, paired programming, continuous integration/deployment environment to get this done. Implementation was done on a .NET stack using WCF / RESTful services and then on a Java stack using Spring Boot, Spring JPA, REST, Tomcat, and Oracle. Solution was a custom ETL process with the ability to recognize and eliminate duplicate data to improve performance.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Daugherty Business Solutions.

    Interview

    The overall experience was the most unprofessional experience of my long career. I was contacted through a 3rd party recruiter and the role (a leadership role in the local branch) seemed interesting. First there was a preliminary phone interview - easy enough. This was followed by an in-person interview which was also rather easy and pleasant. The recruiter indicated she would call me in a day to set up the next interview. This is where the process went off the rails. No call was ever forthcoming. I waited a week before calling/emailing asking about status. No response. This went on weekly for the next several weeks. I even suggested that if they were not interested, please just say so. No response. Obviously I just gave up and moved on. Then three months later they contacted me again and asked if I would be interested in a different position. I cautiously said yes and they indicated they would call me the next day. No call. I went through the same cycle of calls/emails with no response, including another request to simply tell me if they were not interested. No response. Given that I never initiated contact with them for either position one would think they would have the minimum courtesy to at least follow through just once. If this is how they treat potential employees, one can only imagine how they treat people once they go to work for them.
