VAIRIX's agile collaboration with Paack successfully maintained their mission-critical legacy Ruby system, freeing resources for technological innovation and solidifying their position as a trusted logistics technology leader in Europe.


The Client

Paack is a technology-driven logistics company that provides on-demand delivery services for businesses across Europe. They specialize in same-day and next-day delivery of parcels, pallets, and more. Paack provides fast and reliable delivery services to businesses of all sizes, from SMEs to large corporations. They leverage their innovative technology and network of over 200,000 drivers to provide an efficient and cost-effective delivery experience.


The Challenges

Assist Paack in maintaining a legacy Ruby system. Despite being legacy, this system fulfills mission-critical functions for the company, so our team had to keep it functional, make improvements and work with other teams to be able to deprecate some of its functionalities without losing sight at any time of the criticality of the tasks being carried out. 

Despite Ruby being a development language with many years of use and perhaps not being one of the most used, it still plays important roles in many companies. VAIRIX was able to help Paack by providing an engineering team that could take control of this legacy product, allowing Paack to focus on other technology update projects.

The Solution

To address the challenge of maintaining Paack's legacy Ruby system, VAIRIX adopted a comprehensive approach. The engineering team seamlessly integrated into the existing squad, utilizing agile methodologies and Jira for efficient communication and task tracking. With a team comprising 3 skilled engineers from VAIRIX, a Paack team leader, and a dedicated project manager, the collaboration proved highly effective. The combined effort not only kept the legacy product up-to-date but also allowed the identification and deprecation of certain functionalities, without compromising critical tasks. As a result, Paack's internal resources were freed up, enabling the company to focus on advancing other technology projects and maintaining its technological leadership in the logistics sector.
