Platform Modernization to MVC for Better Reporting & Usability

About the Client

The client is an independent energy risk advisory firm providing market guidance to producers, consumers, and capital market participants needing timely and effective market risk advice about energy and energy impacted commodities.

Business Challenge

The Client used obsolete ASP applications and Microsoft Excel for backend processing, thereby maintaining two separate applications

  • Reports were generated manually, using Microsoft Excel which had versioning issues too
  • Use of classic ASP application limited search functionality of massive inventory details
  • Uploading invoices and contracts documents was one of the biggest hurdles as it involved:
    • Receiving generated PDF or PDF sent by the customer
    • Manually Logging into the server and pasting the PDF into the respective folder
