Client Spotlight: Motus

Last week we published the latest case study to our list of ongoing client success stories. I continue to be amazed by the quality of work and exceptional client service our team at Datapipe delivers. I hope you have had a chance to check out some of our recent client case studies. We have been publishing a minimum of one story per month with an increasing focus on our next generation managed services for cloud – with a sharp focus on the work we do for AWS deployments (Check out all of Datapipe’s case studies here). This week, I’d like to take a look at the work we did for Motus, the most accurate vehicle management and reimbursement platform available.

Background: through its sophisticated configuration engine that incorporates real-time data across hundreds of variables, Motus drives significant reductions in cost, ensures compliance and reimburses employees exactly what they deserve. Companies that use Motus often cite a decrease in reimbursement expenses, increased driver visibility and the mobile app’s ease of use as key benefits.

What Was the Roadblock?

One of Motus’ core values is harnessing technological advancements to meet the evolving needs of the company’s end users. This user-centric approach led Motus to adopt a microservices architecture. However being one of the first to adopt a microservices architecture presented a unique challenge. Motus’ IT team, while well-versed in everything cloud, didn’t want to manage the day-to-day operation of the company’s environment. They also needed assistance with their move to AWS. However, as a forward thinking organization with an IT infrastructure utilizing container technology and AWS meant that there wasn’t an established MSP service offering that could handle the company’s environment. They needed a partner with deep expertise in AWS and who was willing to invest time and resources to learn about the company’s microservices architecture and how best to manage it on AWS.

Why Datapipe?

Motus found that partner in Datapipe. Motus has been working closely with the Datapipe team to ramp them up on container technology, its benefits, and best practices for deploying Docker containers. Similarly, Datapipe has been working closely with Motus to assist with the company’s move to AWS and automation of its environment using Terraform and Puppet.

“We sometimes spin up extra environments in AWS for testing,” said Scott Rankin, Vice President of technology at Motus. “Datapipe’s automation experience got us to a place where we can do this with a minimal amount of effort. This is something we didn’t have any experience in and Datapipe did.”
