Our client who owns one of the successful Point of Sales company in Europe since 1998, with 2500+ retail and restaurant clients using their Point of Sales System, approached us. Client didn't wanted to invest into in house software resource, hence they were in a need of a development partner who could support them for continuous development process, namely -

  • Maintenance of the existing Point of Sales System developed in older technology
  • Redevelopment of the product as per the product development road map in newer technology in order to meet the client's need of having Point of Sales system on cloud that runs on touch screen hardware

Our Evolving Relationship

The Challenge

  • To support the existing system which was already developed using a very old technology Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 and SQL server.
  • Secondly, how do we make it convenient for customers to log in by sharing minimal information? And the challenge was to understand the current scenario of the business and their needs in order to give consultancy for new technology selection. And accordingly prepare a system architecture which would suffice the needs for today and the coming years.

The Solution

The solution was divided in 3 stages

Firstly, it was important to win the trust of our client by showcasing them with our capabilities during the trial period. Here, we were not just partnering for coding but also acting as their technology consultant for the future plans in the project.

To offer a effective solution, from the very beginning we brought a team together, led by an expert who has been working with us for more than 12 years as technology Architect and Project Manager.
