The solution required performance enhancements and new features. The solution incorporates large volumes of complex health and dietary data from food and nutritional databases.

The client also wanted new features to be integrated into developed solutions. The new products would help dietitians design precise, nutrient-intake studies to efficiently manage the preparation and consumption of foods and nutrients for wellness programs, clinical trials, clinical research and patient assessments.
The client chose Silicus for its ability to support complex software applications built on Microsoft .NET technology and also for its expertise in developing and maintaining systems.

Silicus enhanced the client's solutions with features for personalized assessment, planning, monitoring and modification of dietary and exercise behavior. Silicus performed the following services:
- Performance was enhanced for the existing food tracking application and users were given the ability to add custom food and meal details not listed in the generic food database. The food search algorithm in the food tracker was updated for improved performance.
- New functionality was added for users to process and upload their pedometer data which was previously entered manually, one record at a time. Now they are able to upload the pedometer data file to be processed and made available for review and analysis.
- A new diagnostic report was developed to be sent to users after they completed a dietary questionnaire. It is a complex report that contains complete analysis of dietary behavior, pattern, the food consumed and their related nutritional components.
- Multilingual and Time Zone functionality was developed across the website to cater to a growing international audience.
