Staff augmentation and mentoring is a core part of our business

What type of work does AMI do? 

  • We helped GTECH design and develop a reusable web-based Player Services product system that issues claim payments, tracks subscriptions so players can repeatedly play the lotto/numbers and tracks gambling habits so rewards can be credited. We then helped GTECH to reuse the product system to customize it for West Lotto, one of Germany's lottery systems, which involved heavy load performance tuning, internationalization in different currencies and tailoring of business rules and user interface.
  • We helped CVS architect and develop a web based Stock Ledger Inventory Control System that takes feeds from numerous stores and vendors, and calculates the Gross Margin and Shrink for Finance to report to Wall Street.
  • We developed XML web services for a premier Boston-based Healthcare claims service provider that services doctors and insurers like Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS).
  • We help government agencies and utility organizations to modernize or convert billing and customer systems using the latest programming standards in Java, UNIX and Oracle or Microsoft.
  • In addition to publishing credit data to a web report ordering system, Adaptive Minds designed and developed numerous XML WEB SERVICES for a credit and sales provider that delivers business publishing data in real time to 3rd party applications using the popular web service XML model.
  • We designed and developed a mobile application that runs on SmartPhones and helps regional sales managers from companies like Burger King to see the demographics on a location with one click, reducing costly trips with realtors and cutting new store opening cycles dramatically. 
  • We were the web architects for Ariba's first web sourcing solution, a reverse auction B2B exchange that linked buyers and sellers online, and has been used by companies like FedX or Dell to make multi-million dollar purchases of parts like screws for their next line of computers.
