The Challenge: Rebuilding Application from Scratch Exceeds Internal Resource Capacity

The client relies on a custom Job Management System (JMS) for administering building construction projects. The software helps manage contracts, costs, client contacts, email communications, historical data, designs, and timelines. As the client decided to add more features and customize existing ones to better meet end-user requirements, the legacy application proved challenging to adapt. As a result, the client chose to re-develop the application from scratch. But the project would take longer than expected—given the availability of resources and other projects internal developers were already assigned to.
