Company Background

The challenge

To assess, evaluate, and make recommendations on the Mosaic App Cloud platform, to ensure it can scale and grow with their customer base.

Why firstblox?

We found firstblox online and began discussing our imminent plans to launch our new SaaS product. Their past experiences carrying out pre-launch checks, optimising for cost and evaluating customers architecture was exactly the type of service we were after at the time. We agreed on an assessment fee and timeline and soon got started.
