Read Time 1 mins | Written by: Kenneth Hough

The Challenge: Tracking orders, inventory, and franchises by fax was not scalable

Nano Interior manages rental properties and provides industrial strength disinfection solutions to residential and commercial properties as well as vehicles. The company operates the NANO Interior franchise, making disinfection services available nation-wide in Japan. ”We struggled with keeping up with our fax-based orders, managing inventory, and tracking disinfectant usage for each of our franchise locations,” mentioned Yuta Yamamoto, President of Nano Interior. Further stating that “We need a solution with easy adaption for all of our employees and team members.”

How KeyQ was able to Help

KeyQ worked with Nano Interior to quickly develop an easy-to-use and agile cloud solution on AWS that managed their orders, invoices, inventory and franchise network. ”After consulting with KeyQ and providing our business needs, they came back to us with a fully designed UI and mockup just in a few days. They got the whole system up and running, including the mobile app, in just under two weeks!” Exclaimed Yuta, further adding that “KeyQ takes our business needs seriously.”

A Framework Built to Accelerate App Development for Startups

I founded KeyQ in March of 2020 with the vision of helping businesses achieve the next level of success through delivering innovative and meaningful cloud solutions. Since its inception, I have worked with several businesses, non-profit organizations, and universities to design and build cloud applications that have helped streamline their business processes and reduce costs.

Prior to KeyQ, I was a medical researcher at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) in the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine. UAB is also where I worked on my doctoral thesis under the mentorship of Dr. Jessy Deshane and Dr. Victor Thannickal. During my doctoral work at UAB I was exposed to the “omics” and big data, which has influenced my career choice to develop data-driven analytics platforms in the cloud.

I also have to give a big shoutout to my undergraduate education at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), where I majored in biochemistry. WPI’s motto is “Lehr und Kunst,” which roughly translates to “Theory and Practice” or “Learning and Skilled Art.” WPI truly cherishes and upholds this pedagogy, which can be seen by the teaching styles and class sizes. The learning experience I had at WPI is unique and has shaped me to be who I am, being able to learn, practice and apply.

Personal Interests

I love to learn innovative technologies and try new things. I have a broad area of interests that include serverless architectures, machine learning, artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, medical informatics, and financial technology. I am also working towards my CFA level 1 exam for 2021. Other interests and hobbies include traveling, rock climbing, rappelling, caving, camping and gardening!
