Their Story

Autosoft provides and supports a complete dealer management system (DMS) that improves processes and reduces operating costs for over 2,000 franchised automotive dealerships across the U.S. Autosoft’s easy-to-use and innovative software helps dealers focus on their customers—not their DMS.

What was it like before Octopus?

We used TeamCity to deploy to our QA environments and manually deployed to our staging and production environments.

How was Octopus able to help?

Prior to implementing Octopus Deploy, we utilized TeamCity to deploy to our QA environments by directly uploading the build artifacts to the proper locations. We manually configured IIS to setup the web sites for each application we deployed. Staging and production deployments were to locked down environments and we didn't have confidence in allowing TeamCity to manage those deployments, so they were done manually by an operations person manually copying the artifacts to the machines or manually running SQL migrations. Octopus Deploy allowed us to eliminate all of the manual deployment steps from our software development life-cycle, saving us time and avoiding deployment errors. The intuitive interface allowed our QA team to take ownership of QA deployments, eliminating the need for a developer to mange them. The robust and secure communication channels of Octopus Deploy gave us confidence to allow it to deploy to our staging and production environments. Automating these processes has allowed us to move quicker and require less resources.

Creating happy deployments at more than 25,000 companies, including:

Shout out to @OctopusDeploy for making their software so easy to work with. Just upgraded a 2 year out of date instance and migrated it to a new server and it worked with no effort beyond what their documentation said to do.

We've been overhauling our internal infrastructure and back-end systems over the past month, including a move back to full @OctopusDeploy deployments; rediscovering how nice it is to have a platform-agnostic orchestrator that can deploy practically anything, anywhere ❤

Tools like @OctopusDeploy can be great in enabling culture change, we've been able to scale and improve our configuration story since we started using it https://buff.ly/2JyRmTY
