Executive Summary

Transitioning from a $1 billion company to a $4 billion company in a short span, Ritchie Bros. recognized the pivotal role of technology in driving this growth. The realization underscored an urgent need to elevate the technical capabilities of engineering teams to adopt modern development practices.

Ritchie Bros. partnered with Liatrio to enable the adoption of a new cloud-native platform. This collaboration ensured the platform was not only scalable and secure, but aligned with the company's long-term digital transformation strategy.

Through this strategic partnership, Ritchie Bros. has been able to leverage Liatrio's expertise to not only modernize its technology, but also cultivate a more innovative, agile, and efficient engineering organization.

Before our engagement with Liatrio, it took new engineers multiple days of onboarding to be able to commit code. Now they’re committing code within fifteen minutes. — Ranbir Chawla, Senior VP of Engineering, Ritchie Bros.
