Finding technology solutions to scale and support ACS' growth proved to be a challenge for the company. ACS needed a technology platform to facilitate operations, integrate seamlessly between existing systems, yield meaningful reports, and provide exceptional customer service.
ACS leveraged three (3) key systems as part of their enterprise technology architecture:
1. Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system
2. Operational system that processes and supports the company’s factoring offerings
3. Financial reporting and accounting software
While ACS's CRM and financial reporting and accounting software utilized API-based platforms, their factoring software lacked web services or API integration points. As a result, ACS could not integrate, report, and develop custom software functions (ex: a modern customer web portal).
Additionally, the previous software provider of ACS failed to enhance its factoring software to support custom client reports or system functions.
The developers of ACS' factoring software offer both dedicated, shared hosting and the option for software subscribers to host their own (self-hosted on-premise or in the customer's hosting environment, including the Cloud). Due to our software development and cloud solutions expertise, ACS engaged us to review different options for enhancing its operation factoring system.
Our cloud experts configured and deployed four (4) Windows servers to properly host ACS' factoring application components (Application, Engine, Web Server) and SQL Server database. Our team used ACS' factoring software's documentation to reference the varying specs (CPU, memory / RAM, disk space, etc.) for each Windows server.
We completed the following implementation:
By migrating these services for ACS to a privately hosted AWS environment, we've positioned the ACS team to unlock value-add integrations, reporting, and custom software capabilities that will greatly contribute to the growth and needs of the business.
Our project achieved the following major successes for ACS:
