Histowiz is a biotech company in Brooklyn, NY, providing histology lab services and slide digitization to research facilities around the world.
Histowiz’s software was originally built by a sequence of solo developers each of whom left fairly quickly, creating a stream of hard-to-maintain technical debt and little continuity in development support.
They needed to be able to support and grow their feature set with the software they had, and could not afford to start over from scratch.
They had solicited bids for a small project from upwork.com, and Green Mars engaged with them and quickly developed trust with their decision makers to help them strategize how to handle their technical debt.
Green Mars developed numerous new features for Histowiz, while also refactoring their technical debt at a manageable pace. Eventually, Histowiz was able to hire an in-house development resource to extend the work Green Mars had done.
