Case Study

Maintaining engineering excellence through a period of rapid growth.

In the midst of pandemic lockdowns, VTS, a leading provider of commercial real estate technology, was in a period of rapid growth. In addition to aggressive hiring, VTS grew through acquisitions, adding Rise Buildings and Lane to its portfolio. Soon after onboarding, they discovered the new teams had less effective SDLC processes, which caused Cycle Time to trend toward 80 hours—nearly double the average Cycle Time of the core VTS team.


Engineering leadership leaned heavily on Code Climate as they incorporated the new teams and integrated the new products into the VTS platform. They leveraged Velocity to investigate bottlenecks and discovered that teams were spending a lot of time resolving issues and were in need of more efficient workflows. Through Velocity, VTS was able to increase infrastructure stability, add more test cycles to reduce rework, and improve workflows. Now, the entire engineering organization maintains a Cycle Time under its 48-hour threshold.

As a manager...I need to make decisions based on data and facts, and Code Climate provides exactly what we need.
