About The Home Depot

The Home Depot, Inc. is an American home improvement supplies retailing company that sells tools, construction products, and services. The company is headquartered at the Atlanta Store Support Center in Cobb County of Atlanta, Georgia.


Issues Faced

The Situation The Home Depot decided to go with an external team with specific and specialized skill sets to build a custom internal system. LD Studios was approached for the project because of our Ruby on Rails experience. During the build, our initial role increased to encompass a more fully rounded project in lieu of just adding value as a single entity. By partnering with another technology team within the Atlanta area, we were able to become a one-stop shop for The Home Depot. Over the course of the project, our experience continued to provide value, and the project expectations continued to grow.

Results

  • Reduced Costs
  • Reduced Timelines
  • Exceeded Expectations

LD Studios to the Rescue!

LD Studios delivered a fully functioning internal application for The Home Depot that was shipped on time and on budget. We were able to launch ahead of schedule for this project saving The Home Depot a significant amount of time and money. The project was sent over to The Home Depot technical team, and the application functioned the way it was originally intended. The project took less than 2.5 months from start to completion. A project of this magnitude typically takes at least six months to program with a team twice the size and at considerably more cost. By using a specialized team, The Home Depot completed their project faster and cheaper than if they had continued to build it in-house.
