About the Client

The client develops and sells software for the North American Office Business Center industry, offering a comprehensive collection of features to OBC clients around the world.

Business Challenge

The client’s existing multi-tenant application was developed in classic ASP using VB 2.0, hosted on SQL server 2003. The application had two interfaces for different user profiles: Super-admin and Customers.

Client faced following challenges:

  • No content management system (CMS) was installed, the client had to make even small changes (say, logo replacement) from the database for its customers
  • Dissatisfied with current payment gateway and wanted Silicus to integrate a new one
  • Wanted to implement digital signature service to its customers adding speed to their businesses
  • Faced performance and usability issues on the website
  • Current website wasn’t optimized for mobile and tablets
  • Application was hosted on SQL server 2003 and client wanted to upgrade to the latest version
