Xpand IT helps HTK expanding its horizons

htk_horizon_logo In just five weeks Xpand IT team in cooperation with Pentaho fully integrated Pentaho Business Analytics into HTK’s Horizon CRM application. HTK new online software-as-a-service (SaaS) editions of its CRM application are aimed at the small and medium-sized business (SMB) market, opening up new commercial opportunities.

By integrating Pentaho, the CRM is complemented with analytics providing customers with a complete solution. This successful project was planned and implemented using a 100 percent Agile methodology. XPAgile it’s a Xpand IT SDC (Software Development Center) specialised in Agile methodology, is a group of software development methodologies based on iterations, continuous inspection and adaptation through collaboration and self-organizing teams. It comprises a quick deployment cycle and is always followed by a review and inspection phase to adjust the planning for the next cycle. This allowed implementing a project for HTK with a distributed team between the Lisbon and Viana offices, all this in a short period and close interaction with the customer.


Pentaho and Xpand IT really came through on the integration work and report styling in a very short timeframe. Those guys are very enthusiastic, passionate about the product and certainly make sure that we get a great outcome. This was a very collaborative, effort rather than straightforward supplier customer relationship.
