The client was primarily struggling with the manual deployment process of the software for the individual user. The process was prone to errors and hiccups. In addition, they did not have a technically sound team to automate the deployment process through software engineering. These challenges did not allow the client to release multiple software parallelly, leading to a low conversion rate and reduced revenue flow.
Apart from the challenges mentioned above, Xorlab’s technical team faced another challenge the absence of appropriate documentation and overall understanding of the regular required updates and the legacy software.
The client was in dire need of software engineering and upgrading from thor legacy software to automate the entire deployment process. This would, in turn, help the client to increase the revenue flow and reduce the time spent on support tickets raised due to deployment issues.
Keeping the limitations in mind, Xorlab technical team including software developers, the back-end development team and the front-end development team sat together to comprehend the challenge and find the right solution within a speculated timeframe.
- Xorlabs analysed the existing system in record time and documented the process for future clarity. The team leveraged InstallShield and ant/Batch scripts to read and understand the legacy software seamlessly within 6 hours of the project commencement.
- We engineered an automated deployment process that was impeccable, offered a simpler user interface and ensure rapid growth automatically.
