WHEN WE EMBARKED ON THE ELABORATE PROCESS OF BRINGING THE MVP SERIES TO MARKET, WE SOUGHT OUT A NEW PARTNER TO HELP US OVERHAUL UPDATE OUR SOFTWARE. WE WERE LUCKY TO FIND SYNAPSE, A CREATIVE, ENTHUSIASTIC, AND RESPONSIVE FIRM RIGHT HERE IN SEATTLE. OVER THE PAST SEVERAL MONTHS, OUR PRIMARY SOFTWARE ENGINEER, JAKE , STARTED SPENDING AS MUCH TIME HERE WITH US AS HE DID AT HIS OWN OFFICE! IT HAS BEEN A GREAT COLLABORATION. HERE IS WHAT SYNAPSE SAYS ABOUT WORKING WITH US ON THEIR WEBSITE:
Synapsters love coffee. A lot. So when Synesso approached Synapse to add functionality to and modernize the screens of their Hydra and Hybrid professional espresso machines, we were more than happy to hop on board. We assembled a small team of electrical and firmware engineers, led by a program manager, to develop firmware that enables Synesso to create an espresso machine that easily transitions from manual mode (think: expert barista) to volumetric mode (think: automatic). Our team worked to organize and update firmware in a scalable manner, making sure future upgrades can be implemented by anyone. In addition to the firmware updates, our electrical engineers designed an updated electrical system, including a new LCD screen. The result is a machine baristas can program to match a custom coffee profile to run the entire day, or longer, ensuring a quality shot of espresso is pulled each time. Collaborating with Synesso, we worked out a trade for a Synapse-branded machine, a beneficial trade for both companies! You can check out our slick Synesso machine in our Seattle HQ.
