"Working with you and your team was a privilege. The way that the team concerned themselves with even the smallest detail and accommodating GROW’s requirements to build and complete the the iGrow App is second to none. You and your team made the journey of project management, design, development, testing and launching the app such an enjoyable journey that I feel sad to leave. Thank you for your insight, instruction and direction guiding GROW every step of the way."
"Lakeside is ran by people incredibly knowledgeable about the business, HR, operational, architectural and infrastructural sides of IT. We’ve reached out to them when our company was going through a rough patch due to an abrupt growth in all areas, and a lot of scalability issues throughout. They helped us to build our QA and TechOps department in just a few weeks. They’ve helped us with building a streamlined DevOps methodology throughout the organization. Last and more importantly, they assessed our systems and operations and guided us throughout the migration of our on-premise system to the cloud. You don’t need to repeat other people’s mistakes – you just need a good IT partner like Lakeside to tell you how to avoid them."
Prior to starting Lakeside R&D our founders worked as leaders in a number of software companies and tech startups. During their long careers they weren't always successful. They made mistakes and learned to ask for help from their advisors. We continue this tradition by helping other companies grow and scale by sharing our experience and advice on tech strategy and engineering management. Our portfolio of tech advisory clients includes industry leading SaaS vendors, public institutions and investment funds.Book a meeting
