Lizard Global: Making a Powerful SaaS Application in the Netherlands

Our partnership with Company.info started two years ago, to be exact on the 2nd of November 2020. Company.info approached us with concerns about data management, particularly those relating to confidentiality, security, and preservation/retention of user login information for their website. They required a tech professional with the ability to archive, preserve, and dispose of data in a safe and secure manner both during and after their service-trial subscription. This includes creating policies and processes to manage electronically handled data.


Lizard Global's main involvement in the project were:


  • Delivering Data Handling solution,
  • Developing a comprehensive Purchasing Funnel that complements Company.info's backend
  • Building a Discounting Module from scratch that enables users to redeem discounts from entering coupon codes in the website

The project was worked on by a group of three software developers, and because it was in line with their corporate objectives, Lizard Global was able to provide Company.info with a customized end product that is still used in their website today.


Lizard Global introduced Next.js as the preferred framework for developing the solutions with Keycloak sign-in authentication. Specifically in the building of user interface, routing, data fetching, rendering, CRM integrations, and many other areas, the aforementioned React framework is versatile enough for the developer to build blocks for the web apps quickly. When a user's time for the free trial has expired, Lizard Global makes sure that their data and behavior were logged using the authentication tool and submitted to the sales API of Company.info to create an email blasting automation.


Company.info continues to be one of many partners of Lizard Global in the Netherlands because of the exceptional work produced by the team. We currently provide ongoing system maintenance to them. In addition to bug fixes, our solution also changes over time, which helps Company.info achieve its goal of being one of Mt/Sprout's top SaaS businesses in the Netherlands.


Company.info remains our client until today

As Company.info expands, their database does too, necessitating an upgrade in Keycloak authentication. This technical breakthrough caused a redirection problem with the login procedure, which prevented the login feature from functioning properly.

"To solve the issue, we swap out the @react-keycloak/ssr, a particular library used in Keyclock, for NextAuth.JS. The authentication procedure has been upgraded with NextAuth.JS, and no more problems have been discovered. — Senior Software Developer, Kenny.

Apart from switching from Next.js to NextAuth.js, Lizard Global is still actively updating and maintaining the Purchasing funnel on a regular basis. Examples of this include changing the copy on the landing pages and occasionally checking for issues.
