A Fortune 1000 client's application benefits from major feature upgrades and performance enhancements. The Solü project team worked closely with the client to enhance the application and address these challenging requirements.


A recognized leading provider of integrated human capital management solutions for payroll, benefits, human resources, and insurance services for small and medium sized businesses.


Give a critical application its first major overhaul since it was built in 2006.

A leader in SMB Finance and Human Resources outsourcing was seeking to make major enhancements to a mature application with a large, established user base. Critical success factors included the addition of features needed to support large/complex customers along with the ability to scale as customer growth accelerates.

In the quest to deliver a next generation application the project team faced several key challenges:

  • New features required to support large/complex customers were much more computationally demanding than current features.
  • New features and performance optimizations had to be implemented for both a desktop application used by the client’s operational support team and a web application used by their customers.
  • Existing features needed to be optimized or overhauled to support large/complex customers.
  • There was an incomplete understanding of current application performance as well as current and target customer profiles. These knowledge gaps limited the quality of non-functional requirements provided to development and performance engineering teams.
  • The methodology used to measure and forecast performance in both pre-production and production environments needed to be enhanced to adequately address the emphasis on large/complex customers.

A more efficient, feature-rich application with across the board performance gains and the ability to support customers 100x+ more complex than before.

    After an unsuccessful attempt with another vendor, Solü provided a team of development, analysis, and Agile project management resources that were instrumental in turning a troubled project into a major success. In addition to delivering a leaner, faster application with new and improved features, the project team developed tools and made process changes to maximize product quality, performance, and scalability.

    Priceless Partnership

    Solü worked in partnership with client staff to deliver feature enhancements that directly addressed key corporate strategies aimed at facilitating self-service, reducing operational setup and support times, and consolidating customers to a single application. Although project deliverables included an impressive list of new features, the most innovative gains came in the area of large/complex customer support. The team successfully delivered features necessary to win new large customer business, allow the migration of large customers from a legacy system, as well as facilitate the onboarding and maintenance of large customers.
