THE CHALLENGE

Upgrading a decade-old online portal that served employees and customers alike.

ACM Global Laboratories is a world leader in medical diagnostic and clinical trial testing services that has been operating for more than 40 years. Annually, it performs over 20 million tests and studies across 65 countries.

Our approach started with a three-sprint discovery phase aimed at:

  • Gathering the requirements for the minimal viable product (MVP)
  • Developing the application’s architecture and infrastructure
  • Creating a plan and cost for implementation

To find out and establish the must-haves for the MVP, we conducted 22 interviews to complement the set of preliminary requirements provided by our customer. Equipped with the discovery data, we accurately defined the audience’s front and backend needs. This led to creating wireframes that supported the development of the final product. Knowing that ACM is a Microsoft-centric organization, we recommended Microsoft Azure as the cloud platform for the project.
