Quickline Communications - Data Management System

Quickline was formed in 2008 and has recently had a large cash injection to help them scale its business. Quickline provides high-speed rural broadband connections combining fibre and 5G wireless technology.

Propel were asked to provide a new Data Import and API system that imports data from several sources and surface this data via an API. The client's goal was to develop a single view of the various data they have from multiple sources, to be able to report on the data in one place and make it easier to realise sales opportunities. Previously Quickline had to manually manipulate multiple datasets to be able to make valid business decisions.

The new system that Propel developed means they now have a one-stop shop for all internet coverage data. Quickline required the data import process to occur overnight, in a short time period. The growing size and complexity of the data to be imported meant that keeping to these short timescales was a challenge. Propel Tech recommended the use of Amazon AWS’s serverless hosting technology Fargate. Propel Tech engineered the software to fully utilise Fargate’s capabilities, shortening the import process from days to a couple of hours.
