Challenge

Moving the company ahead through outsourcing

To remain an industry leader Worksoft decided to update the digital experience of its products, focusing on front end development. The goal was to differentiate its high performance solutions from those of its competitors by renovating its six core products’ design and front end technology.

Solution

A series of front end development projects

Our first project together was the refresh of Worksoft’s main tool, Management Studio. The Worksoft team came to us looking for a partner with know-how in user experience and strong front end development skills.

Our team worked closely with Worksoft staff to create a clean user interface and meaningful experience. During the project we also suggested migrating from a legacy technology to Angular in order to ensure better code quality, which helped improve performance. In addition, the team created reusable, generic components that were able to function in other projects.

As soon as the team synergy and the general working relationship was cemented, we began improvements for another Worksoft tool, Certify. Our designers proposed a new visual for the platform in order to solve usability issues, and some of the proposed features were validated through a Proof of Concept.

Results

An Agile approach while designing and developing updates

After working on Management Studio and Certify, we took ownership of the refresh of three other Worksoft products, designing and developing new features, as well as conducting system migrations to more modern technologies.

In the beginning, Worksoft was new to the agile methodology process. Our team traveled to the client’s location for about 10 days to learn about the business and its various products. It was a great opportunity to help Worksoft with the agile process by having regular planning meetings, product reviews and retrospectives. This constant communication resulted in incredible synergy between the teams. The outcome? Wonderfully updated and refreshed apps.
