In 2015, Coty Inc., purchased the Wella Brand and the Prestige line of fragrances and cosmetics from P&G. Along with the product lines, came many of the employees and paperless applications to manage sales effectiveness and customer support. These applications are based on the Apple iPad and used by reps in the field.
Coty’s partnership with Directpl started with a project named “Galleria”. The Galleria project’s goal was to migrate existing applications, modify them according to Coty’s requirements, and create and connect them to Coty’s backend (VPN, VPCs).

"At Tacton, we have to be very selective in choosing which partners to work with. It can be difficult to find developers with a unique combination of insight, technical skills, and creativity needed to work on our highly advanced Configure Price Quote (CPQ) solutions. Direct Communication is a reliable, engaged partner who understands our business and vision while building our team in Poland."
Robert Nilsson, Co-founder
"We engaged Directpl for a few projects for one of our clients. Directpl moved very quickly and were able to start the projects almost immediately with highly skilled people that worked under little supervision. All the developers were very good, hard-working and with a lot of initiative, they quickly got up to speed and were ahead of time in the projects. The projects were a success."
