Project in a Nutshell:
Revitalize aging Ecommerce solution for the largest indoor skydiving company in the USA.
Paraclete already had a complete Ecommerce solution when they reached out to us. The previous developer was no longer available, which is not uncommon, but it left them in a bit of a predicament. Our team did an initial evaluation to determine what shape the application code was in, and then we started addressing issues Paraclete was reporting.
Our maintenance and support service also includes rapid support, in the event that something bad happens during business hours. We have provided enhancements and support for Paraclete for several years.
Goals and Objectives
Paraclete’s main objective was to improve efficiency and the overall user experience of the online booking process. Speed was also an area to address, as was the clunky usability of various modules within their existing application.
Maintenance and support is one of our core services so we are no strangers to working with “rough” code. But in the case of Paraclete, poor code quality combined with a complete lack of technical documentation added to the complexity. Paraclete also has contracts with the military, so special rules had to be enforced to address that.
Over several years of supporting Paraclete’s in-house custom application we’ve addressed the major bug fixes and missing features they have required, and we have improved the user experience in several areas related to online bookings and backend logistics.
