How we developed it

  • After receiving the initial brief, our Technical Business Analyst had set up a web-meeting with the client to discuss the project in details.
  • The legacy database was managed using Microsoft .Net and most part of it was corrupt.
  • Our Database team was engaged to recover the database to migrate the legacy data to the new platform.
  • An initial user journey was formulated following with a set of discovery calls.
  • The UI/UX designer created the UIs for the web-app and upon signing off on the creatives, the frontend development began.
  • In about 12 weeks the new platform was ready with the legacy data migrated over to it.
  • High performing solution stack comprising Nginx, Apache, MySQL, and WordPress was deployed over a cloud network for scalability.
