The Grain

An application to support production planners



The Grain is an Antwerp-based data science company, was looking for developers to work on Checkmate, the company’s own application for production planners. Having failed to find top talent locally, The Grain looked at the external market and joined forces with CactusSoft. 


The Grain delivered an MVP themselves, building the analytical components and a robust backend. CactusSoft was brought onboard to work on a strong frontend for the web application. 

Checkmate has now been launched. The Grain has collected and analyzed the primary feedback — the reactions from customers have been predominantly positive.


The collaboration between The Grain and CactusSoft continues, with CactusSoft providing additional QA services to The Grain. The companies now work on upgrading Checkmate and adding new features to the app.
