Modernization of a Web-Based Platform

The Case

Fourth’s business expansion drove the need of modernization of one of their core products – recipe and menu engineering web-based platform. Being one of the prominent IT sourcing providers in Bulgaria, ScaleFocus was tasked to provide highly qualified and experienced specialists in web and frond-end software development.

The Modernization of a web-based platform

“ScaleFocus staffed technology specialists with great professional experience in a quite short period of time. Their specialists joined multiple engineering teams and covered domains which, at that time, required an essential need of a premium contribution. They performed with passion, excellence and a tremendous level of engagement during project delivery empowering Fourth to scale up its hospitality management portfolio to a future-proofed level.” says Georgi Hristov, Head of Software Development at Fourth.

After quick on-boarding the specialists from Scale Focus started executing various software development tasks using front-end technologies like Ember.js.

“ScaleFocus’ team took part in the implementation of a microservices-based architecture, breaking the existing logic into small web API services based on ASP Web API. The new architecture empowered Fourth to integrate all software products in one multi-tenant cloud platform and achieve interoperability and unlimited scalability” says Georgi.

"We are happy that for period of six months Scale Focus was part of the modernization and further development of our cloud-based solutions. As part of this development Scale Focus helped us to deliver added value to our customers. We now provide better web browser and device compatibility and improved user experience in pricing menus and planning the portion sizes, margins, costs and purchasing strategy in advance and many more."
