The challenge

As modern software rapidly moves onto the cloud and into the browser, the pain of maintaining and improving legacy desktop software becomes ever more evident.

While the internal technical teams have a very deep understanding of the problem that the software solves, those technical skills often do not translate well into web platform development.

Our Solution

Our team worked closely with internal staff to fully understand and replicate legacy internal software dealing with hydraulic flow calculations and mapping. The new version of the project ran entirely in the browser, and supported the same data formats as the previous system. The system was fully supported on desktops, tablets, and mobile devices.
