Our customer is a Nordic leader in human resource and financial resource management solutions and serves over 12 000 clients in Nordic countries.
Time and Planning platform had existed since 1990s. To maintain market leadership, the Customer decided to integrate the software with other HRM products in the suite and change the licensing and software delivery model to SaaS.
However, old problems prevented it. Functionality was not available through the Web, the products interacted with each other via files and had many overlapping features. One of the main challenges was to create a new attractive user interface according to modern usability guidelines.
These issues were solved in stages. Firstly, the key features of the software, such as scheduling employees, tracking workforce time and attendance, and managing absences, were extracted, refactored using .NET technologies, and moved to the web.
After that, the architecture of interaction of the software with other HRM modules was redesigned using service-oriented approach and WCF technology.
The project was implemented by a team consisting of Arcadia’s .NET, Silverlight and AngularJS professionals and the Customer's analysts owning the business logic. The team utilized Agile approach and SCRUM management framework.
Outsourcing of software development allowed the Customer to concentrate on analysis and strategic plans. The Customer increased market share and started providing cloud solutions.
