Inofast Manufacturing produces highly specialized fasteners, primarily for the government and defense industries. They use a custom browser-based application to manage all aspects of their
daily business, which was built by a single self-taught internal resource. They reached a point where the internal resource could not continue to enhance the application at the pace required
by the business. They needed help to take over and increase the pace of ongoing enhancements and also to implement technological improvements to existing functionality.
SwitchLane was selected to take over all aspects of ongoing development. We focused first on various architectural improvements, including the use of ASP.NET MVC for new screens while
allowing for a hybrid approach where existing Web Forms screens can still function alongside them. Once that was done, we took over all ongoing development using the SCRUM process to manage
the effort. Eventually their internal resource left the company and we also took over Production Support duties for the application as well.
We were able to dramatically increase the pace of new development and the quality of releases for approximately the first 9 months of this project. At that point the internal resource
left and some of the pace fell off because we picked up support duties as well, but this was in line with Inofast's revised priorities. We continue to enhance and support all of their
software needs on an ongoing basis.
